3-A With 15th Film Production Delayed as Starlet Catches Cold. Bolting Horse Puts Alice Brady r on Side Lines. BY SHEILAH GRAHAM. HOLLYWOOD. December 31 tN.A.N.A.).—‘‘Stowaway" . . . Shirley Temple's fifteenth film for Twentieth Century-Fox ... 14 additional days were added to the regulation 34-day shooting schedule when Alice Pays caught flu and transmitted a cold to La Temple. During production, the 7-year-old moppet’s de luxe portable dressing room caught Are, nearly roasting Shirley's Arst Christmas present, a pedigreed Pekingese, titled "Ching Ching.” •; Shirley surprised every one—includ ing herself—by picking up several Chinese words . . . the Chinese actors j in tne mm were taught their Chi nese lines par rot fashion . . . the Infant's tap number Is per formed with a pair of hand made shoes sent her from New York by Bill Rob inson. colored tap ’ dance king . . . Robert. Young, borrowed from M-G-M for romantic lead opposite Miss Shfilah Graham. Faye, is a filmland rarity—ne was reared in Hollywood and made good In Hollywood. He prefers to bring his own lunch to the studio—in a lunch pail . . . Eugene Pallette warbles for the first time in his career—which ^ explains his picture career. Half way during "Stowaway,” Shir ley started 3-A grade school work. When she reports for her next pic ture. "Wee Willie Winkle,” the first lady of the screen will be promoted to the fourth grade. "Three Smart Girls” . . . Deanna Durbin. 14-year-old radio songstress, makes her screen debut. She was signed by Universal after M-G-M fired her. The latter studio execu tives are still kicking themselves! During a location trip to Lake Arrow head. Deanna Durbin. Nan Grey and Barbara Reed had to navigate a small sailboat. The vessel turned turtle, precipitating the "Three Smart Girls” into the icy lake. In response to popular demand, Mischa Auer spent his "spare” time In between takes giving imitations of ft gorilla (his high spot in “My Man Godfrey”). He threatens to shoot at sight the next person mentioning the word "gorilla.” . . . Alice Brady, who dislikes all forms of exercise—except I eating—was forced to ride a horse. Her misgivings were justified. The horse took fright at sight of the camera—and bolted through a hole in the fence. Shooting was suspended several days until Miss Brady could sit down at her work. Watching them make pictures. . . . "I have a good quotation for this pic ture—'Money does not always smell’,” says Peter Lorre to Producer-Writer Nunnally Johnson on the sidelines of ■‘Nancy Steele Is Missing." Plaased with his witticism. Peter the sinister returns to the camera. The scene calls for Victor McLaglen to shoot him, and Lorre has prepared red gooey stuff on his hand. McLag len aims his gun at the floor. A harmless little pop Is heard—but a look of agony distorts Lorfe's features and he clutches his already ’'wounded" hand. Before the scene is reshot, McLaglen is given another coat of perspiration by the make-up man. McLaglen “shoots” Lorre six times. ... In between shooting, the two tough guys discuss what their wives gave them for Christmas. Shirley Deane and June Lang, femi nine interests-in-chief, both started life as dancers and blonds. They were both under contract for three years without getting worthwhile jobs. They both darkened their hair, changed their names and immediately ensnared lady success. Warren William and Karen Morley are about to be lynched on the “Hap piness Preferred” set. It is night and the couple are tied to trees while Lewis Stone begs the torch-bearing crowd to spare their'lives. An extra screams hysterically. Your corre spondent sneezes. Director Florey says "Cut!” And shooting is suspended while Mr William, who plays a doctor in the picture, gives me 10 sure-flre remedies for curing a cold. P. 5—I still have the cold.

ISA GARDINER and her terpsi chorean group combined their talents with musical composi tions of outstanding members of the Washington Composers’ Club in a recital, remarkably original in choregraphfc pattern and character ized by assurance and ease of interpre tation. in the auditorium of Roosevelt High School last evening. In a program that was chiefly humorous and caricatural In treatment of the subject matter, the entire troupe displayed keen Insight for the details of facial expression and pantomime, avoiding, on the whole, a natural pit fall of pantomime—that of "overdoing." This was true even of the very young "ballerinas,’’ who handled their rou tines with the confidence and poise unusual for their ages. Unity and co operation of the individuals was ap parent throughout, with few qiistakes in entrance cues and infrequent lapres in continuation of the choregraphy. “Old King Cole.” simply an adapta tion of the Mother Goose rhyme in more elaborate clothing, was the most popular of the evening’s offerings and the most convincing in enactment. The rotund old gentleman was made his drollest through the clever and novel facial contortions of Alice Louise Hunter. Reliable support by Patricia Benedict and Patricia Perry as the pages, and Rudolph Vallee and Fred eric Cole as the bodyguards balanced the performance. The off-stage "fid dlers three’’ were Henri Sokolov, Stan ley Hertzman and Samuel Feldman who. with Edith Hunter at the piano, provided creditable instrumental sup port. Featuring the young children, “The Barnyard Bully” (music by La Salle Spier), offered a situation whereby divers fowls, cows and cats stroll out ! on the stage, cavort a little, then are chased away by a somnolent dog. who eventually Is mobbed in retaliation.

BOBBY BREEN in "RAINBOW on tho RIVER" "Love and Laam" "Moonfaca" "My Naphaw FjomNioa" Why the Warm Weather1 Meteorologist Explains Mild Tempera tures Due to Stalled Atmosphere. BY MARTIN L. DOBLER, , Member of the American Meteorological Society. A "STALLED” atmosphere will have to be blamed for the recent extended period of temperatures, which have embraced the entire Eastern half of the United States. And, by a "stalled" atmosphere, we mean a marked slow lng down in the eastward procession of areas of “high'' and "low” barometer ac-oss the country almost to a stand still. Supposing, for example, that all through trains eastbound on one of our great trunk lines would so reduce their speed under favorable operating conditions as to cause great delays, and Imagine the surprise and anxiety It would cause to passengers "en route.” This is precisely what has taken place in our atmosphere, without any sufficient explanation as to what caused the "weather tie-up.” with Its re sultant mild temperatures, and "Spring rains,” rather than seasonable tem peratures and heavy snows. ferent dance tempos, brought out the skill of Misses Polly Prickett and Ma rian Wolberg to the best advantage, while the effort of Composer Mary Howe, "Cards," was noteworthy. There was, about the accompanying musical compositions, little that could be described as “monumental" in orig inality or melodic content, although it proved itself suitable for employment with ballet. One must remember that music In ballet accompaniment is valued chiefly for its rhythm and oc casional flourishes incidental to the pantomimlcal expression. Edward Pot ter's composition work in "Old King Cole” and Deane Shure's "Minuet” were popular, especially the latter with its typical eighteenth century dance flavor. Mr. Potter's choral, "The Little Jesus." sung by the chorus, also was well received. The Mount Vernon Church chorus sang aeveral religious compositions by Washington composers, Miss Edith Gotwals at the piano. —J. S. The barometer over Eastern North America, for a long while, remained high, but stationary, and in the neigh borhood of 30.30 Inches, just high enough to prove a blocking effect to storm areas that would otherwise trend more to the southeastward and eastward, giving us heavy snows in their wake. Present indications, however, point to the resumption in the next few days, or toward the end of the week, to more active weather types, with a rising barometer now taking place over the great Mackenzie River Valley of Canada. And, in this connection, we can expect decided fluctuations in the temperature, and more normal wintry weather, with plenty of snow and rain throughout the month of January. We do not, however, at the present writing, expect the cold this Winter to be too prolonged, but we can right fully anticipate plenty of severe cold spells, of from two to three days dura tion at least. One thing is assured, and that Is, there will be an abundant supply of moisture over the Appalachian re gions, eastward to the Atlantic sea board. during the current Winter, the recent rains already having sunk very deeply Into the soil.
