SAt " AUGUST 25, mi, Ufce Charles America* Press r Junlet Editor* Quit en CEMENT QUESTION; How did cement originate? if * « • ANSWER: People usually confuse "cement' and "concrett. 1 Let's clear the difference up before we answer the question. Above, Bill is helping two wofkmen build a garage of concrete blocks near his house. He's bringing water to the man with the hoe. This man takes the dust-like powder called "cement" from the bags, mixes it with water, sand, and gravel. This mixture being concrete. It will be passed to the other man to bind th« concrete blocks together. Cement and concrete were originated by the ancient Romans. They used lime and ashes from vol- canos for the cement. The Romans used a layer of concrete under the stone of their famous raodways, (A). Later, the secret of concrete was lost but was rediscovered by an English* man, John Smeaton, in 1756. A natural stone which made fine cement was discovered in a region called Portland, and this led to the finding of similar deposits in New York state. "Portland cement" then became very widely used. • • * ! FOR YOU TO DO: Many bridges, roads and large buildings make use of concrete (B), but they use an even stronger kind called "reinforced" concrete. Can you guess what is put into the concrete to make ft stronger? ... e-zs ^ (Judy Bucham of Muskegon, Mich., wins $10 for this que«- tion.

He'd better not let Warner Brothers know about it, because the freres have laid their dough on (he line for the success of "The Gallant Man." Bill plays an infantry Captain in the series which, along with "Combat," marks television's jump into war as a steady diet. "Nobody tried it before." Reynolds remarked, "because there was no need. You could get by with the usual run of series. But now people have been spoiled by "The Defenders' and the Dick Powell Show and other quality attractions. They demand new Islanders." He escaped with a and better things. i broken ankle and two cracked "Another matter that has held ribs . in a Jamaica location plane Director of 'Cleopofra' Is Real Forgotten Man the profit back on reruns, which Warners is willing fo do." "The Gallant Men" start their war at Salerno find work their way up the Italian Boot. That should occupy one season, tf they win their own war of the ratings, they may take on Germany next season. Nobody knows what will happen after that. Brushflre wari, perhaps. A Los Angeles boy who has had middling success after a doren years in films, Bill Reynolds was a casualty of two former series: "Pete Kelly's Blues" (13 chapters) and "the Islanders" (24). "Both were doomed," he admitted. "Everything was against us with 'Kelly.' Jack Webb had such faith in it that he went on at the end of the season. We required strong reviews and good ratings to survive. We got neither. After the first show was on, we knew we were dead." Bill nearly lost his life on "The CROSSWORD PUZZLE ta 7. 8. t'nytom 9.

He hopes to better his score with "The Gallant Men." But he admits that he is expendable. Said he: "If they want to get rid of me, all they've got to do is have me shot or promoted." a war series back is the cost. It's cheaper to do standard stories against standard sets. War film involved a lot of outdoor action, a large cast and explosives and other expensive production details.

"Nobody ever talked about the play—all because some idiot with a pistol took a shot in President Lincoln's box." Mankiewicz is the man who directed "Cleopatra," and everybody seemed to want to talk about something else besides the movie itself. Here to put the film in final shape, he seemed pleased and delighted when I asked about his own work on it. "Well, it is coming along," he said. "Right now we are in the process of trying to put together the second half, and it is a monumental job. But I think it is going to be a remarkable film—not merely in its spectacle, but in the human relationships, too. "It was a tremendous task to put together two complete love stones. Mr. Shaw wrote a play about one ef them—'Caesar and Cleopatra," and Mr. Shakespeare WTOte a play about the other one — 'Antony and Cleopatra.' I had to combine both in one film. "I would be the megalomaniac of all megalomaniacs if 1 said that I thought I had accomplished what I wanted to do. But I think it will be a good movie, and the cost will be seen on the screen." The film will run four hours, he said, and will be shown in one sitting, despite his notion that it could be split into two $15 million movies. The company wouldn't go for it.
