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.
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
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.
