THE SOUTHERN JEWISH WEEKLY
BEVIN TALKS LIKE
LESSING ROSENWALD
(Continued from Page Three)
Arab and Moslem states is great.
Decisions of the Assembly are
largely recommendatory and not
binding. There is no machinery
for assuring that the Jewish
Agency will be given a hearing.
Conversely, British and Arab in
fluence on the Security Council is
more limited. Its decisions are
binding. Its procedure will per
mit the Agency to be heard. Evi
dently, both the Arabs and British
have decided that the Assembly
is, for their purpose, a more favor
able body than the Security Couh
cil. In order to end the uncertain
ty and tension as soon as possible,
the Jews should press to have the
problem of Palestine placed on the
agenda of the Security Council at
once.
Finally, the most important, is
the fact that the role of the United
States becomes more crucial than
ever before. One day before Mr.
Bevin’s speech. President Truman
pledged that he would continue
his efforts to get 100.000 Jews in
to Palestine. American pressure
to date, however, has produced
meager results. Circumstances
may have transformed that situ
ation completely and opened the
way for a far greater and more
fruitful exercise of American in
fluence. The British invitation
to the United States to assume
responsibility in Greece means
that Britain, because of her des
perate economic plight, is being
forced against her will to begin
withdrawal from the Mediterran
ean are. The United States, there
fore must make an immediate
choice: either to cede power and
authority in that part of the
world to other countries or to as
sume a greater measure of res
ponsibility herself. And she can
discharge the latter either by be
coming the heir of British imper
ialism or by assuming, through the
United Nations and consultation
with other powers, Britain's un
fulfilled responsibility for peace,
justice and international morality
in that area. On the choice A
merica makes may well rest the
future .of Jewish Palestine.
At the same time, the submis
sion of the problem to the United
Nations makes possible the exer
cise of more effective American
pressure. America has generally
conceived the problem of Pales
tine as one of Jewish nationhood
and not. as Mr. Rosenw ald-Bevin,
simply as a question of refuge.
.American influence within the
United Nations is extensive. And

HOLLYWOOD VOICES
BY LEON GUTTERMAN

HOLLYWOOD—
As many Hollywood fortunes
have been made with a clever set
of vocal chords as with a pretty
face or fancy figure. A voice
with a personality has been pay
ing off dividends in movieland
ever since the flickers learned to
talk and today a distinctive man
ner of speech is the most valuable
trademark of many of our biggest
marquee names. They are the
stars whom moviegoers recognize
instantly anywhere, anytime.
Recently in interviewing Ed
ward G. Robinson, after seeing
and hearing him play a scene for
his new starring picture “The
Red House,” I asked him what
single talent he would credit the
most for his phenominal success.
He answered quickly: “My voice.”
He had good reason for his
choice. It was his remarkable
voice, with its low, vibrant tone
and clipped enunciation, which led
to his discovery by Hollywood.
The rest is now history.
are practical and unassailable.
And we must press for immediate
consideration of the problem by
; the Security Council.
And finally, we must make cer
tain that Jews everywhere en
gage in some hard and earnest
stock-taking of .ideas, concepts
and tactics not only within the
framework of the immediate prob
jm of Palestine but over the
■' hole area of Jewish survival. A
lgle fresh insight, one fruitful
ilytical concept will be worth

of cliches, platitudes and con

Jack Benny, Eddie Cantor, Al
Jolson and Danny Kaye are vocal
personifications of Mr. Big with
the music fans of both the movies
and radio. Fifty million people
who couldn’t be sure of the color
of Eddie’s or Danny’s eyes would
certainly never miss on the voice.
John Garfield is one of the
screen’s great actors because he
can raise the blood pressure of the
female patrons just by opening lrs
mouth and sighing. Paul Muni’s
well-known voice is full of box
office appeal, while Paul Henreid,
Dane Clark and Paul Lukas are
romantic figures because of the
way they talk as much as because
of the way they look.
Magic voices which make them
immediately known are possessed
by such feminine stars as Paulette
Goddard, Ingrid'Bergman, Hedy
Lamar, Marlene Dietrich and
Dinah Shore, to name a few. The
voices of Hollywood's great are
remembered long after the visual
image has faded from the screea
“Thar’s gold in them thar
throats!”

In the event you are now writ
ing or planning to write a novel,
this is to let you know that Metro-
Goldwyn-Mayer is upping the
awards in its prize novel contest
to a minimum of $140,000 and a
maximum of $274,000, with a
switch from annual to twice a
year contests, starting in May-
The angle, as far as MGM is con
cerned, is that it not only gets an
option on screen rights to the win
ning novel, but on all others su

lure —not only to author but P u
lisher—many novels are held a
