“I don’t think too muck of Stur

Beall of Pensacola. “I don’t think
Johns would call a special session,
jlf 1 were in Johns’ shoes I would
: attempt to gather my friends
about me or those 1 considered fit
to serve in the state positions."
Sen. James A. Franklin of Fort
Myers said “The question ought
to be settled immediately. I cer
tainly would be willing to attend
a special session with no compen
sation.”
“I don’t imagine the governor’s
going to call any special session."
said Sen. S. D. Clarke of Monti
ceiio, also a former Senate presi
dent “But like Sturgis, I’d be
glad to serve without pay.
“I don’t agree with him (Johns)
on his suspension of the road
board. I never concurred with all
those wholesale removals. It’s
been against nay advice. I think
he made a grievous error.’*
Sen. Harry King of Winter Ha
ven said “If the charges against
the people are substantial then I
see no reason why they should not
be submitted to the Legislature,

Sen. E. William Gautier of New

“As far as I know, there’s been
-no malfeasance or misfeasance by

"Four Fean"
To apwards of 1,306 Democratic
partisans assembled at the 1100-a
--■a-ptote dinner, Stevenson said that
the Four Freedoms the late Presi
dent Roosevelt laid down in 1941
as guiding principles for America
aad fra world have been supplant
ed by the “Four Fears."
Freedom of speech and of wor-j
skip, freedom from want aad fear, j
he said, have been replaced by
“fear ef depression, fear of com
naaaisaa, fear of ourselves, fear of
(freedom itself.”
“Those gallant hopes of yester
day.** he said, “have gives war
to ttw sorry confusion of today.**
He questioned whether President
Eisenhower can speak as the voice
ef authority lor hie own admin
istration.
While Eisenhower speaks of
unity, he said, presidential col
leagues sow disunity.
“While he calls for calm,” he
said, “his friends light the fires of
hysteria. While be invokes the
American tradition that the ac
cused has the right to be con
fronted by his accuser, members
of bis administration and his party,
try, condemn and convict hi a
single action of the hand.
“I only wish President Eisen
hower could speak for the Eisen
hower administration.”
Brownell Attacked
Jumping on A tty. Gob. Brownell,
Stevenson said ho has “even im
puted disloyalty or Compuaist
sympathy" to former President
Truman.
Truman’s vice president, ARwn
W. Barkley, raw-hided Brownell
too.
“We have an attorney general.*’
he said, “whose chief qualifica
tions seem to lie not in his skill
a sa lawyer but in his ambidex
trous, nocturnal invasions of
sepulchers of tbe dead.**
Mentioe of Brownell brought
hisses from the crowd.
Barkley drew a bead on the at
torney general for his Nov. S
charge that Truman in 1946 pro-;
moted Harry Dexter White, now;
dead, from a high Treasury de-i
partment office to the International
Monetary Fund in disregard of:

Ann Blyth Plays
Clever Role In
Bright Comedy
Ann Biyth’s astonishing ability to
'portray an 11-year-oid in a brief
: opening scene of Uuversal-laurna
ittaaai’s heartwarming new come
dy, “Sally and Saint Anne,” open-!
mg Tuesday at the Monroe Thea
tre, recalls similar roles essayed
by other grown-up film stars
through the years in Hollywood.
Edmund Gwenn is starred with
Miss Biyth in the new comedy hit
directed by Rudolph Mate and pro
duced by Leonard Goldstein.
In “Sally and Saint Anne ' Miss
Blyth accomplishes her transition
to an 11-year-otd by wearing no
make-up aad affecting br.ee* chil
dren wear on their teeth. Imme
diately after the opening scene,
and tor the remainder af the film,
Ana is seen as a glamorous charm
er who wins her childhood sweet
heart from a siren who has set
out to take him from Ann.
Ann’s altogether believable por
trayal as a youngster, at the age
of 14 years, has aot been matched
within memory of movie oid-tim-'
era.
June Haver was convincing
enough at a youngster growing up
on the vaudeville stage in “Look
for the Silver Lining” and June
AUysoa was believable after drop,
ping a doaea years in “Too Young
to Kiss.”
Mona Freeman, the mother of a
4 year-old, was realistically brat
tiah in “Dear Ruth" and “Dear
Brat”
Also within comparatively recent
memory was Jeanne Crain’s per
formance as an adoiesent in “Mar
gif'* and before that Shirley Tem
ple. fully grown, harkod back to
adolescence in “The Bachelor and
the Bobby Soxtr."
Ginger Rogers will be remember
ed for her young girl role in “The
Major and the Minor" and iosn
Fontaine for successfully portray
ing a young girl role in “Letter
from an Unknown Woman.’*
And not to be forgotten is the
late Fanny Brice who spent moat
of her adult life bringing smiles
to countless millions with her “Ba
by Snooks” characterizations.

Rather, the correspondents
learned, it was due to “failure ef

of an unacceptable plan."
Dulles declined to make a direct
statement, saying he had not had

However, it was learned that the
American view was that continua

less the Communists indicate wUl
