That, indeed, was the actual attitude of Christopher Isherwood whose Berlin .stories were the .source for the John van Druten play, Ishcrwood did slay in Ger- annny in the 1930's ftntf did know n. fantastic creature such as Julie portrays. Besides Harris, the only other familiar American face in'the film belongs to Shelley Winters. The dialogue, upon which the film wisely dotes, is very sophisticated and very funny.

Austria —UP— Communist Hungary admitted Friday that former Foreign Minister Liiszlo Rajk and four other Red leaders were "innocently tried and executed" in 1949 in one of the last of the great Stalin era purges. Rajk, the onetime police boss in Hungary who rose to even greater prestige as foreign minister in 1948, "was executed in 1949 with four other Hungarian Communists as a traitor. Until Thursday Hungary had held him up. as one of its worst examples. Rajk was the first major Communist leader in a satellite state to be "rehabilitated" since the recent Communist party congress in Moscow started its campaign to downgrade Josef Stalin "and to repair some of the "enormous'' harm he did. Rajk "confessed" during his trial that he and his companions were conspiring with Yugoslavia to overthrow the Communist regime in Hungary.

PHONE 8090 Americans Sling More Paint Around House Than Ever By ELIZABETH'XOOMKY.. NEW YORK —UP— We are painting our homes, inside and out, at a record rate. Our urge to spruce up the old, as well as to build new homes and apartments, are the major reasons why the paint industry ranks seventh among U.S. Industries now. It was in 158th place in 1953. Next year we are expected to top our own painting record. The government has designated 1956 as national home improving year. We will put more than 150 million gallons ot paint inside or outside our walls. Much of that will be applied bv a member of the family. The ao- it-yourself movement has infected all income groups and is made constantly more contagious by development of new paints and eas- ier ways to apply it. One survey of 6,000 families by the National Paint, Varnish and Lacquer Association, Inc., showed that SO per cent did their own inside . painting and 64 per cent did their own outside painting. Chemists are working on no-dirt walls, coated with .paint which will repe^ dust particles, and decorative fire-proof paint, which will give off a gas that douses flames when heated. .*,... We have more than twice as many paint colors to choose from as we did before World War II, and everybody is color conscious. Sales of flat white .. paint have dropped W per cent in the same period. "We also are trying to see that paint is easier to buy," said Doug- las 'C. Arnold, president of the Keystone Paint and Varnish Corp. "Buying paint should not require experience or unusual technical knowledge." Het professional painters, who obviously could find their jobs endangered by the development of: family painting talent, are pleased at the results of the do-it-yourself painting surge. They say it has started everybody thinking about redecorating, but , not inspired 'everybody to. do the work. 'The only ones who really 'do- it-yourself are strong women and intimidated husbands," Martin Rarback, official of the Brotherhood of Painters, District Council 9, said. "The idea has been good for professional ' painters. It gets people in a redecoratinjr mood. But after they climb up on a few. tables and use muscles that have been in disrepair for 20 years, they decide to have somebody else do it" At present the painting boom has caused only one worry. The next generation may find itself forced into being do-it-yourself painters.
