The WAY I SEE IT ★ BY NELL DODSON RUSSELL NEW YORK CITY.—In the months ot bitter political controversy to come, this columnist does not Intend to engage in any partisan political writing. You will have to make up your minds on the basis of what you believe just as I will have to do. We here in New York have the doubtful advantage of being able to secure a partial picture of the political scene from eight daily newspapers expressing opinion rang ing all the way from the pro-Communist, fellow traveling extreme left to the anti-Communist, re actionary extreme right. However, not many in dividuals out of the eight million have the urge much less the time to wade through the editorial blabber of eight newspapers a day. I manage as many as I can and try to "stagger” them on some kind of regular schedule. I oftentimes find that NELL. RUSSELL rather than becoming more well-informed on cur rent political pussy-footing and double-talk, I am utterly confused as to which of the journals is whangling the biggest mouthful of hogwash in its editorial pages and columns. The allegedly ••liberal” New York Post gets as weird In Its deviations as the "reactionary” Hearst Journal-American. The New York Times which advertises Itself as printing “all the news that's fit to print” becomes so tangled up In Its own cotton stuffing on occasion that a reader seeking unvarnished opinion has the feeling he’s being suffocated under a printed haystack of goofer feathers. As the result of this plethora of printer's Ink wafted from eight publications, the average New Yorker who reads only two newspapers a day anyhow. Isn't exactly unin formed but manages to be just about as misinformed as a feller living In any other American city. El H The newsstand gentleman who sells me my evening papers every 5 p. m. doesn't know what to make of Yours Truly. Sometimes I ask for a New York Post and a New York Journal-American. This is practically unhoard of. People who read the Post Just don’t read the Journal and vice versa. Another evening I'll ask for a World-Tele gram and a Post while on a third evening I’ll ask for a Journal and a World-Telegrom. The poor man sees men coming and gets an un happy look on his face. In addition to eight daily newspapers. New Yorkers have access to an over supply of midnight to three a. m. so-called "disc-jockey shows which are really sessions to air any and all controversial questions of the day. Anybody stupid enough to stay up that late listening to ’em deserves Just what he gets. Didn't I tell you the junior Senator from Minnesota always manages to keep in print out this way? The Daily News of last Sunday gave HHH three quarters of a column with a picture of the Humphrey visage no leas. The Senator was blowing a fuse about the newly-enacted McCarran-Walter Immigration Law. Hubert, in denouncing the Democratic Party’s stand on the bill, reportedly said, as you’ve read by now: "A party like that can't win and shouldn't win.” Oops! Well, anyhow the Dally News printed It and millions of readers out hyar saw It. It was right next to a Bloomingdale's ad for nylon Khlrback curtains and bamboo blinds. You couldn’t have missed it kiddo. That Humphrey. Anybody heard anything from Thye lately? Harriet Parsons, daughter of Louelia (Hel-t.O to ALL of you from HOL-leewood) Parsons, has produced a film thing called “Clash by Night.” This dramatic serving of motion picture hoke stars Bar bara Stanwyck, Paul Douglas and Robert Ryan in a vehicle (what else ?) that is already drawing cash customers past the boxoffice in droves on Broadway. Maw Louelia is motion picture editor of Inter national News Service and has given her printed Oscar to her off spring’s effort. I suppose any motion picture critic for the Hearst chain who let Harriet’s production off with less than fine enthusiasm would get a secret bang on the noggin from his editor. “Clash by Night," based on the play by Clifford Odets (not too good a play) Is the story of a gal who wanders back to her hometown fishing village after an unsuccessful Journey Into the outer world. The gal, played by Barbara Stanwyck, finally mar ries a dumb-hunny fisherman, Paul Douglas. The bee in the marital bonnet Is played by Robert Ryan, whose main contribu tion to the film Is a leer and a nasty tendency to pull Miss Stan wyck around. Mr. Douglas is completely ill at ease in his role. He can’t make up his mind whether to underact or overact. One close-up catches him half-way between both endeavors with the result that he comes up with an expression closely resembling that of a feller who has just realized he’s been walking around all day with a tear in the seat of his britches. Minn Stanwyck tries to show frustration by chain smoking. but that gimmick is strictly a Bette Davis original and no body but Davis can carry it off before the cameras. Mr. Ryan waltzes tKrough the picture with a half dozen variations of the sajne leer. The day I saw the picture, the audience kept giggling In the wrong places. Maybe they were Just hysterical from the heat, or rather from the sensation of walking into the deep freeze cooler the Paramount calls air-conditioning, after staggering around outside with their tongues hanging out. “Clash by Night" is the kind of dramatic corn that house wives sick of washing diapers and wiping noses will love because it will send them home to the old man with the feeling that If Stanwyck can put up with such a dope, so can they. After coming out of the Paramount, I was walking on West iith Street towards the subway. A very suntanned, goodlooking gent hopped out of a taxie at the stagedoor entrance to the St. James theatre. He paid the driver and tore towards the stagedoor. crashing into me enroute. It was Yul Brynm r, the stai of "The King and I”, the long-run musical hit at the St. James Hi apologized profusely while I stood there gaping with my big mouth open. He had long since disappeared when I got around to sayink w< akly: ’’That’s all right.” The reports of Mr. Brynner in a Bikini bathing suit on the beach at Fire Island are most intriguing. Even with clothes on he looks good yet. * * * THE WAYWARD BUS. The biggest yok down at the office still has to do with the chartered bus that got lost on the way home from the company outing. It left Timber Point at 6:30 p. m. for the two hour ride back to New York It arrived in New York at 12:30, six weary hours later. The driver, a resident of Jersey, couldn’t read a New York state road-map or something. One young lady employee had to get a letter from the personnel department that she’d actually been on the bus all that time. Her maw didn't believe her.
