In Hollywood By PAUL HARRISON NEA Service Staff Correspondent • HOLLYWOOD, Jan. 15— All over the lot: Not quite naughty and only i little indecorous, bedroom farce has been coming back to the screen lately. Three pictures containing joudoir comedy are in production low, and the themes of two are similar. In “Two Many Husbands,’’ at Co lumbia, Jean Ar thur h a s t w o spouses — Mel vyn Douglas and Fred MacMurray. In "My Favorite Wite,” at RKO Cary Grant has two wives—Irene Dunne and Gail Patrick. Censers, you see, will stand for a 1 o t more spice when characters are Paul Harrison legally marneu. So scenarists, wr.tn they must deal with the old triangle situation, simply resort to bigamy. I watched Miss Arthur dealing cooily with her dilemma by tucking both her husbands into twin beds in the same room. (It seemed that Mr. MacMurray, long absent, had been thought dead, but that he had turned up shortly after she mar ried his partner, Mr. Douglas.) * * * Director Thinks It’s I’retty Funny Miss Arthur made her exit with a cheery good night, and her husbands then began a long and futile game of creepy-sneaky. Each man would crawl out of bed and into the hall and would try to get into his wife’s room. Sometimes they'd encounter each other, but they didn’t reach Miss Arthur. Miss Arthur, the sly-boots, had put her father, Harry Davenport, in her bedroom while she, presumab ly, had gone to spend the night at the Y. W. C. A. This device len^ propriety to a situation which was nevertheless funny. Director Wesley Ruggles laughed so hard at his own handiwork that he tripped and neai ly fell off a high camera platform. * * * Mae West and W. C. Fields were honeymooning on the set of "My Little Chickadee.” At least, they had just been married. Lying abed, Miss West watched coldly as her hus band puttered around with some luggage. After a minute she slip ped out of the room, unnoticed by him, and almost immediately came back with a goat, which must have been grazing on the rubber plants in the corridor. Fields, still preoccupied, didn’t see that she tucked the goat in bed, snatched up some clothes and left the room again—this time for good. Fields went on talking. Pretty soon he halted, sniffed and said, “Dar ling, have you changed your per fume?” They told me that if I’d stick around long enough, Mr. Fields would have to kiss the goat. I didn’t wait. * #' * tui uut The Color In Technicolor About two years ago, after color pictures had been criticized for be ing too bright, a period of reform set in. Directors would go around bragging, ‘‘I've got less color in this color picture than in any that was ever made.’’ But “Irene,” RKO’s Technicolor version of the musical, has one large set which contains no color at all. Mostly black and white, some gray and silver. The 40 extras are in black and white evening dress, a id they’re palefaced. Even the food, a table of hors d’oeuvres, is entirely black and white.

(adv.) ■ » / f Behind The Scenes In Washington WASHINGTON, Jan. 15—Back of Senator Sheridan Downey’s inno cent resolution for a senate com mittee to investigate super-high ways there is the most elaborate public works program ever submit ted to congress. On the face of it the senator’s resolution simply asks that the senate name seven mem bers to find out how and where a super-highway network might be built, and how much it would cost. wnat the sena tor actually is shooting at, how ever, is the build ng of a highwaj system that would cost $100,000,000, 000, the building ;o proceed at the rate of approxi mately 10 billions i year. By doing all of this, the senator believes :he nation would: (A) End the Bruce Catton (repression. (B) Solve the employment prob lem. (C) Acquire a set of highways tailored to fit the automobile age WOULD GET FUNDS FROM EXCESS SAVINGS Senator Downey keys his whole project to the recent studies of the Temporary National Economic com mittee. The "TNEC”, he says, has shown that the nation's major in dustries have become practically self-financing. Because of this, excess saving; are piling up at a tremendous rate; for the past year, he asserts, thej run to better than seven billions and if we reach a national income of 80 billions this year, the exces; savings—money available for in vestment but lacking an outlet will amount to at least 10 billions What he proposes is to funne those excess savings off over a 10 year period, and build highways with them. "Investigations of present high way conditions show clearly thai our highways are inefficient and dangerous,” the senator declares. “In another decade, if our roads are not rebuilt, traffic and com merce will simply have to stop. ‘‘Engineers estimate that to give us the best highways fully adapted to this modern era, we would have to spend 100 billion dollars. Of this about 35 billion would be used tc build roads between and outside ol the cities, and 65 billions to builc approaches to metropolitan centers and highways within the city iim its.” * * * PLANS TAXATION ON BUSINESS INCREASE There is, of course, the questioi of how all of this is going to b paid for. Senator Downey figure that the problem is relatively sirr pie. Here is the answer as h works it out: Suppose that bonds to obtain th necessary hundred billion are is sued. Let the bonds carry interes of 1 1-2 per cent and add anothe 1-2 of 1 per cent for amortizatior Two billions a year then woult carry and retire the bond issue. Meanwhile the construction c this vast chain of highways, as h sees it, would cause a huge boor in auto traffic and the existin federal taxes on gasoline and o would bring in much higher re\ enues. Since trucks and buses coul operate much morei cheaply on th new highways, they could properl be taxed more heavily to help pa; for the bonds, he believes. The average net profit made b; the automotive industry on passeti ger car sales, before federal incom tax deductions, was $29 per car ii 1937. In 1929 it was $55. canapes are white plaster wit cavier painted on.

RALEIGH B RIE FS Star-News Bureau Sir Walter Hotel By HENRY AVERILL RALEIGH Jan. 15.—From time to time there is speculation in the news and editorial columns of North Carolina’s press over the populari ty or lack of popularity of President Roosevelt among Tar Heel voters. In view of the fact that a big majority of this state’s daily news papers are pronouncedly anti-New Deal so far as their business of fices go. it is rather obvious that some of the views expressed are children of the wish, rather than the thought that the President’s popu larity has declined, though there are clear evidences that FDR isn’t quite the Mr. Big he was in 1936 when he set an all-time record of success in North Carolina balloting for president. There is some expression of the opinion that selection of North Carolina’s delegation to the demo cratic national convention will give an idea of the Rocsevelt popularity in this state—but it will not. The delegation will, as usual, be select ed, branded and ""ntrolled by po liticians whose principal guiding star will be expediency and a sincere desire to be on the winning side. Your Raleigh reporter has talked with visitors from all sections of the state and from conversation with them has obtained many and various views; but not one single, solitary soul has flatly said he thought Roosevelt would lose the state, if he seeks a third term—and by far a majority o those inter viewed believe he would be the choice of Tar Heels democrats in a statewide presidential primary. One University of North Carolina professor—himself an anti-New Dealer—said he would give any re publican opponent of President Roosevelt a chance in only one con gressional district of the state—the sixth. One Wake county farmer, who dabbles in politics as a side issue said that in his immediate section there is widespread resentment against the administration's farm program—particularly at the man ner in which it forced farmers to vote for tobacco ccj.trol on threat to do absolutely nothing for them if they didn’t support it. “There’s a heap of us who never voted anything but the democra tic ticket who wi’l not vote for Roosevelt, or anybody who has sup ported the New Deal's farm poli cies,’’ he said. Others—in fact most of those in terviewed—have had something to say against features of the Roose velt New, Deal. Some objected to one agency' or policy, others to dif ferent ones; but almost all wound up by saying they' are completely in sympathy with the Roosevelt ob jectives and will vote for him in preference to anyone the republi cans might name. It has been a very noticeable fact that practically nobody expressed opposition to a third term w li o didn’t almost in the same breath indicate it is Roosevelt—and not a theoretical third termer—to whom he is opposed. AH in all, it’s this corner's opin ion—given for what it's worth, which probably isn't much—that FDR is still by far the most popu lar candidate for the democratic nomination and for re-election. It ig reported that there are ap proximately 26,000,000 passenger cars and 4,400,000 commercial cars registered and in use in the United States, traveling an estimated 2u0 billion vehicle miles per year. ^irrteT^fe^MpiNTi^TriFAsiTR^ CONTAINS 2 TO 3 TIMES IJillilJ MOREMEDICATIONTHANi f ' i klN ANY salve sold nationally Trcft-fBMtTrl yF0R COLDS'MUSCULAR ACHES AND NASALMISERIES —GETPENETRO.

Submits TV A Plan For Broad Development WASHINGTON, Jan. 15 <iP> — President Roosevelt submitted to congress today a proposal by the Tennessee Valley Authority to con vert the area encompassed by the TV A development in six southern states into a giant national play ground. “Many of our citizens and even government officials hold a belief,’ the President said in a special mes sage to congress transmitting the report, "that the purpose of the act creating the Tennessee Valley Au thority was primarily the develop ment of electric power. ■‘Utter Fallacy” “It is perhaps time to call atten tion to this utter fallacy.” Additional objectives, Mr. Roose velt said, were to control flood dam age—estimated at $20,000,000 an nually—and to make the river navi gable. In its broader sense the TV A was formed, he continued, ‘‘to raise the standards of life by increasing social and economic advantages in a given area.” Power development, the President declared, was only a part—“and ultimately only a small part"—of the social and economic effort in the Tennessee water shed. With his message he transmitted a study prepared by TVA on recrea tional possibilities In the area. The report, signed by Harcourt A. Mor gan, chairman,, called attention to the fact that TVA’s lake had sup plied the region with “the one ele ment which nature omitted from an otherwise lavish recreational en dowment.’’ Morgan said in a letter to the President that the TVA act of 1933 authorized a study of the region from a recreational viewpoint but that the TVA board still lacked power to carry out its own recom mendation. He suggested that con gress grant TVA this additional power. “Such powers,” the report said, “should include authority to con struct and to operate recreation facilities on property acquired in connection with the primary pur poses of the water control program; to utilize the work relief resources of such agencies as the NYA, \VPA, and CCC in carrying out the fund amental program; and, at least dur ing a trial period in which manage ment problems and public demand can be more fully explored, to op erate recreation facilities developed under the program, either directly or through a system of carefully supervised concessions.” Council Of Churches Opens Tuesday Night GREENSBORO, Jan. 15—UP)—The fourth annual convocation of the North Carolina Council of Churches will open here tomorrow night at the First Presbyterian church with an address by Bishop J.
