week, with a guest star.
Dick Powell Is out of the hospital
and hopes to start the final sever
days In "Assigned to Treasury" the
middle of next week. Dick went
all the way to Havana to work, but
did not appear In any of the gtufl
taken there. He was too sick.
Hedy Lamarr has bought "Hero'i
Oak," the novel by William Castle

part of a Polish peasant girl.
Charlie Chaplin was expounding
his movie and political theories tc
a group at the Stork Club In New
York, when a gentle snore wai
heard. It was Wife Oona, who hac
fallen asleep! Honestly, this real
ly happened.
Jean Pierre Aumont has signée
with J. Arthur Rank to make "Thf
First Gentleman" in London, anc
will leave Hollywood about the enc
of May—with Maria Mountez's sis
ter, Lucita, and her brand-new hus
band, Jean Roy. And what with

Earth" and "Her Husband's Affair.'
Rita Hayworth is divorcing Orsor
Welles in September — in Los
Angeles. Rita, while she was in
New York, "lost" $3,000 in travelers
checks. They were found stuffed
in the toe of one of Rita's shoes—
she'd put them there for safe
keeping!
Judy Garland has a slapping field
day on Gene Kelley's face in "The
Pirate." She also breaks everything
in her room on his head! I hop«
Judy is not as strong as De anna
Durbin, who really went to towr
on John Dall's right cheek in
"Something in the Wind."
Linda Darnell is gaining weight
When I saw her on the set durinj
the closing days of "Amber" land!
could not do up her dress at th<
waistline! "I gave Gladys (her hair
dresser) a bon voyage party foi
Honolulu," explained Linda, "anc
I ate everything, cake *n' all." Lindi
should have her cake and eat it—
! she's paying Gladys' expenses t<
' Honolulu.
Errol Flynn isn't at all his hand
I some self in the early scenes o1
j "Silver River." He wears his haiJ
: long and he doesn't shave.
Mickey Rooney at Slapsy Maxie's'
All I know is that they are dangling

Don Taylor, who used to work at
Metro in rather small roles—his last

has now obtained his release and
he's up for the lead in Mark Hel

I William Gaxton are coming to Los
i Angeles this summer to star ir
"Louisiana Purchase," at the Phil
; harmonic.
: Robert Young Is refusing all pic
I tures until October. He wants to see

tures in a row. Robert recently con
fided to a friend that if he were
to retire today he'd have enough
I do-re-mi to live in the style tc
which he is now accustomed. In that
case he must hav·» at least $1,000,
000. And they couldn't belong to a
I nicer guy.
Robert Taylor sa d to Atwater

about you and I don't believe It."

Upper Bay Cufoff Channel
Dredging to Start Soon
By the Associated Pre**
BALTIMORE, May 1.—Dredging
work on a cutoff channel across
! upper Chesapeake Bay, to save
ships sailing between Baltimore and
jNorth Atlantic ports 12 nautical
miles, will start within two weeks,
the Army Corps of Engineers an
nounced yesterday.
j Dredging of the 400-foot-wide and
; 27-foot-deep channel will be done
by the American Dredging Co. of
Philadelphia lor 438^390. An over
all appropriation of $865,000 has
been allocated for the new channel.
The new channel will provide
passage for ships now using the
1 Chesapeake and Delaware Canal. In
I stead of going down the bay to Gib
son Island to reach deep water and
make a turn, the ships will be able
to sail directly across the Bay be
tween North Point and the canal's
Bay Challen off the Eastern Shore.
The project was first proposed
by the Export and Import Bureau of
Baltimore in 1938. It was approved
by the War Department in 1942 but
the work was delayed by the war.
