DAC Host to Marshall Aussie Sensation Swims in Exhibition John Marshall, the phenomenal 20-year-old Australian who set four world records in the recent National AAU indoor championships,' will go after two more world swimming standards Saturday, The youthful Yale University freshman will seek the 500-yard and 500-meter free-style marks in a special exhibition at .the Detroit Athletic Club pool. MARSHALL'S RECORD, attempts will spotlight the biggest collection of swimming talent to . ... , compete here since the Olympic trials in Rouge Park two years, ago. Also sched uled to join the DAC show are Maureen O'Brien and Jackie LaVine, two of the Na- tion's top women swimmers, from Chi cago's Town Club." Marshall smashed the world 440 and 220-yard and 400 and 200-meter free-style records in the NAAU; championships two months ago. His respective times were 4:31.2 and 2:05.4 and 4:29.6 and 2:04.6.' The young Australian has been swimming for only four years, but already he. is certain to go down as one of the world's great swimmers. .No one has ever matched his performance in the NAAU meet. The exhibition has been arranged as part of the annual DAC Father and Daughters party. 115 Publinx Shooters Fire on 2 Courses The ; two toughest municipal links, Rackham and Redford, will be the sites Saturday of the National Public Links qualifying trials. - A total of 115 entrants seeking five berths in the Nationals will play 18 holes at each course in the 36-hole metal-play test. Starting times have been reserved for them between 7:30-9:00 a. m., and 1:00-2:30 p. m. Leading the contestants will be the 1949 medalist, Jack Mc-Givern. He shot 69 at Rackham and 74 at Redford for his pace-setting 143 total. Larry Tomasino and Gordon Verville are the only other qualifiers of a year ago trying again. The five low players will qualify for the national tourney starting July 1 at Louisville. The three low will form Detroit's entry in the team event. How Ti mes Chaime BOSTON Leo Durocher of the Giants, Frank Frisch of the Cubs, and Billy Southworth of the Braves all were managers of different NL ball clubs in 1940. JiC J. A fVi f v 7f ; .. Ik.

Now horsemen around the Belmont earns are wondering if there could be a major upset in the making. ALTHOUGH 10 were entered, only nine of the three-year-olds are expected to face the starter Saturday at 3?47 p.m. Syl Veitch, trainer for C. V. (Sonny) Whitney entered Dooly, along with Mr. Trouble. If the track is fast, Dooly won't start. When Middleground won the Kentucky Derby, with Hill Prince second, Mr. Trouble was third. Then Chris Chenery's Virginia colt reversed things, winning the Preakness while Middleground took second for King Ranch, and Dooly came in third. Others entered in this 82nd running of the race are Hal Price Headley's Lotowhite, George D. Widener's Lights Up, Clifford Mooers' Hawley, Brandywine Stable s Greek Song and the Brookmeade Stable pair of Sun-glow and Greek Ship. All will pack 126 pounds. With nine starters, the race will be worth $91,950, and the winner's share is $61,350. Second money is $15,000, with $7,500 for third and $3,750 for fourth. Sawyer Guest Star Ex-Detroit Pro Back Leads at Pine Lake Pat Sawyer, one-time pro at Birmingham Country Club, is back in Detroit proving that his golf game still is sound. Now a businessman-golfer in Minneapolis, Sawyer returned to team with Blaine Eynon, a member of the host club, in the Pine Lake. Invitational. They whipped through their first match with the hottest scoring of the day. SAWYER AND Eynon were four under par for 14 holes in an alternate-stroke team event. Victims of this subpar blast were Dave MacHarg, of Oakland Hills, and Ralph Ellstrom, of Birmingham. Sawyer and Eynon finished out the round after ending the match and were three under par. In the opposite bracket a successful advance was made by the medalists, Tom Crews, of Detroit Golf Club, and Randall Ahern, of Red Run. They dropped E. E. Richards and Jack Veneman, 4 and 3.

Jeanne Crain to Star in Sorority Picture BY HEDDA HOPPER HOLLYWOOD "Take Care of My Little Girl," an appropriate title, has been chosen by Darryl Z a n u c k for Jeanne Crain's next picture. The Epstein twins will put the best Violence Bogs Down in These "Gun Crazy" and "House by the River" make a "B" hive of the United Artists Theater. Both are movies of violence. "Gun Crazy" has more action, once it gets going. "House by the River" is a sluggish attempt to make a horror movie. ': IN THE first John Dall grows from a boy obsessed by love for guns to a man infatuated with Peggy Cummins as a carnival Annie Oakley. She leads him into a life of crime that ends in murder and death. Dall is good in the role, Miss Cummins sulkily pretty. Berry Kroeger and Morris Carnowsky have support roles as carny owner and a judge, respectively. But a juvenile-delinquent opening slows and lengthens the picture unnecessarily. GLOOM SETTLES leadenly over everything about "House by the River" in which Louis Hayward is a weakling author. Janj Wyatt as his wife doesn't know what It's all about every time Hayward goes into a tantrum. Trouble is, he's strangled Dorothy Patrick while making passes a', her. Her brother, played by Lee Bowman, has helped him dump L?r body in the river. The whole picture has been hammed up until it would be funny if it wasn't so unbearably dull. H. C. B. Soviet Musical Portrays Life in Siberia "Symphony of Life" in color at the Cinema Theater was filmed in Moscow about three years ago. It takes Americans behind the Iron Curtain to musical life in Moscow with "capitalist" trappings of white-gloved concert formality. It travels by river barge to Siberia, so like our own Northwest. ITS STORY centers around a young lieutenant whose future as a concert pianist is destroyed by a war injury to his hand. He goes home to Siberia, becomes a draftsman and plays the accordion in a tea house. Two boy - loses - girl, boy -gets-girl situations develop. One is "straight," one is comedy. The people look healthy and happy. The folk music they sing gives enjoyment. The color is soft and registers well except for some light-struck scenes. The film is sad for an American because these people cannot associate with the world family of nations in the carefree manner they portray. H. d B SMCASAfJOUA Grand River at Third WO 1-5284 The One and Only CHARLIE CARLISLE King of Comedy plus Big Supporting Show 7 NIGHTS A WEEK 2 SHOWS NIGHTLY 2 BRUCE ROY'S MUSIC seller into screen form, with 20th's white hope, Julian Clau-stein, producing. This story tells the truth good and bad about sororities, but treats the subject with humor instead of a hatchet. Jeanne can't do it until after her baby arrives. THERE'S QUITE a hassle over getting Elizabeth Taylor to costar with Laurence Olivier in "Sister Carrie." Director William Wyler wants Liz. But there's no guarantee that Liz will be ready and willing to work when she returns from her honeymoon. There's also some talk of Ava Gardner for the part. Joan Evans, tired of being a blond, dyed her hair jet black the minute Sam Gold-wyn left for Europe. Brod Crawford spent three days fitting 10 loud suits, before leaving for Washington, D. C, for "Born Yesterday." It's a shame he isn't the same size as Bing Crosby. He might have borrowed some of Bing's for the picture. Bob Young says what he wants for the leading man ' in "Storm Within A Heart," which he directs,, is a cross between Montgomery Clif t and Kirk Douglas. Claude . Binyon is putting his 60 cows in his next picture, "Friendly Island." Incidentally, movie cattle get a daily salary, plus special compensation for the weight they lose during shooting. Humans aren't that lucky. YOU WONT SEE "Harvey" until the Christmas holidays. U. I's saving Jimmy Stewart and Josephine Hull for the Oscar Race. "The Kansas Raiders" had to stop shooting on location in Idylwild while a plague of locusts was wiped out. Shipley Temple owns herself. She served seven years with David Selznick, and is now free to make her own picture deals. Dana Andrews' brother, John, a furniture dealer in Dallas, has cracked out with a song, "Peace of Mind," which is headed for the hit parade. Tony Martin's recorded It. Jimmy Stewart served as chairman of the Los Angeles assembly for the Boy Scouts annual circus here last year. And Dore Schary has taken on the job, which means that the L. A. Junior College will feature 35,000 Boy Scouts at their next roundup. Constance Talmadge's husband, Walter Giblein, joins her next week for a three weeks trip up the coast. He's never seen Santa Barbara or San Francisco. We've never had a comedienne on screen with a lighter touch than Connie's. But Jane Greer, if properly developed, could do the same kind of parts. Jane's very talented but shy, and RKO is wasting her talents. Propaganda Doesn't Come Off For some reason studio publicity omits any reference to Communism in "The Woman on Pier 13" at the Palms Theater. If anyone thinks the movie could have been called "I Married a Communist," he wouldn't be far wrong. It's a more melodramatic American version of the same plot as that of the British-made "Conspirator," seen here last March. STARRED ARE Laraine Day, Robert Ryan and John Agar as Nan and Brad Collins and her younger brother, Don Lowry. Brad had come np from a dockside past to office as a steamship company official. "The Party," locally headed by Vanning (Thomas Gomez), wants to foment a shipping strike. When Brad tries to be a peace-maker, a former sweetheart, Christine (Janis Carter) and Vanning blackmail him with his past as a Party member. CHRISTINE MEETS the impressionable Don and tries to lure him into the Party. Instead, they fall in love. Brad's role is conspicuously weak. He goes a long way with the Party. "The Woman on Pier 13" is one of those movies which makes a fan keep asking, "Why doesn't he call the police?" Yet if the police were called, Party methods of dealing with recalcitrants and renegades couldn't be shown. That's where the melodrama comes in and pretty corny it is. CASTING AND acting are better than the story. Miss Carter does particularly well as a cold, blond siren who has a change of heart. Detroiter William Talman has a lot to do, and fiendishly, as Bailey, a Party "heavy." Richard Rober is the "good" union spokesman. A picture like this is so full of cliches that it's doubtful whether it can serve as effective anti-Com munist propaganda. Maybe that's why it isn't being sold as such. H. C. B. Jazz Battles on Theater Stage At 9:30 v. m. Saturday on the Broadway Capitol Theater stage Wild Bill Moore and his orchestra will swing against King Porter and his band m a jazz contest.

V. I .1, ? as a Chicago Gangster BY THAT BIG LUG Paul Douglas is certainly, as they say, a sweet personality. It's easy for the gals to "Love That Brute," title of his new movie at the Fox Theater. No woman could blame Jean Peters as Ruth Manning for falling in love with him as Big Ed Hanley, Chicago gangster of 1928. But this comedy is most successful in the scenes which satirize the behavior of a big "mob" and its leaders. Big Ed's romantic interest in Ruth sets the story in motion. Yet the character of Ruth is a personality split between a nice girl from Rainbow Falls, Mich., and a highly-glossed cabaret entertainer. That's the authors' fault, not Miss Peters'. She does nicely by the role. Diminutive scene-stealer Is Peter Price, 10, as Harry, the "little gorilla." He's a Detroit (if you please) gangster's orphan rushed in by Big Ed to pose as the son Ruth is to look after. The little fellow is Georgie Price's son and already a trouper in miniature. THE NAME cast has Arthur Treacher as Big Ed's butler and Keenan Wynn as Bugs, his first lieutenant. Joan Davis is comical as Mamie, night club girl and mobster's widow. Cesar Romero is the fashion-plate rival gang leader. Pretty Willie. Every angle of gang warfare is played while Big Ed tries to keep the truth from Ruth. He's not really a killer at heart, as the action amusingly discloses. He wants to get out of the racket. Finally his funeral gives him the out. Uniformly accomplished acting makes "Love That Brute" a skilled parody, in spite of some uneven-ness in the story.
