HOLLYWOOD — (NEA) — Stupefyin' Jones, the girl whose allure is guaranteed to stupefy any male, just told a real stupe­ fyin' story. Hollywood, Stupefyin' said, simply overlooked her for three years* and sh6 had to go to Broadway to be notiged. Since Julie Newmar was, and;at is, Stupefyin' Jones in "Li'l Abner" — first on Broadway and now in the Paramout movie — this was pretty ridiculous. Overlooking Julie is practically words necessary for the role. For her final Swedish test, she said, she went down to the New York docks and struck up conversations with Swedish sailors.

Even when she played one of the brides in "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" no one paid much attention to her, she said. That's when Julit, born in Los Angeles, went to Broadway where no one overlooked her. She stepped right into the spotlight as Stupefyin' Jones. From Dogpatch she went on to prove she isn't just a king- size stack.,of allure. She won the role of the Swedish doll with the 164 1. Q. In the Broadway hit, "The Mar- riage'Go Round."

She and her recent playmate, 110-foot Squirt, perform five times daily such stunts as net In the murkiest of waters. How? The whales utter ultrasonic noises that echo back information. They can even tell kinds of fish that way. Whales have nice personalities. They always seem cheery, with their mouths curving up in a smile. The only time whales get nasty Is when they 're bored. Bubbles started boppinp frogmen with her big head and tossing other fish out of the tank. She hit the general manager with a mackerel. Introduction of Squirt made her happy again.
