When Queen Frederika of Greece recently walked, incognito, through San Franctaco’s Chinatown, she admired a tiny toy pistol in a souvenir window. The shop owner as sured her it could fire a bul let: “But it will cost you 10 cents for the blank bullet." The Queen never carries money; her lady-in-waiting agreed to pay it. The Queen fired the pistol. It resulted ) first in an explosion and then the sudden arrival of secret servicemen who rushed in to check on what sounded like an “assassination” attempt. SPEECH: Senator Wayne Morse rarely makes a speech from manuscript. He says: “A so-called extemporaneous speech of mine is not an Im promptu speech but rather one that is even more thor oughly prepared than any manuscript speech.” He tells of the day he appeared on the floor of the Senate with a thick manuscript which he was about to recite. The then Senator Ives of New York told him: "Wayne, this is the first time I’ve ever caught you unprepared in the Sen ate." NAMES: Ethel Barrymore met May Davenport Seymour, curator of the Theater and Music Collection of the City of New York. They discussed the matter of pronouncing names in introducing people. Miss Barrymore said: "Why, oh why, when I am at a party, does my hostess pro nounce my name clearly and loudly—but murmur inaud- THEY AIL GO FOR CINEMASCOPE • EASTMAN COLOR A COLUMBIA PICTURE TRANS-LUX “SIUF 1 HIPIT fa NNI I THE WORLD OF SuKie WONG SEATS ON SALE THROUGH SEPT.

They celebrated Miller’s discovery of an 1854 copy of the Sac ramento Bee containing a review of "Romeo and Ju liet." It co-starred Miller's grandmother, Mathilda Her on. In referring to her co star the critic wrote "Under the tutelage of Miss Heron, young Edwin Booth is de veloping into a fine actor indeed.” INSCRIPTION: Recently Bill McHale, of Time maga zine, was one of the news men expelled from Iraq. He’d Just obtained an exclu sive interview with Premier Abdul Karim Kassem, who gave him an inscribed photo. Then McHale was notified, by phone, that he must leave Iraq within 13 hours. The explanation: “You’ve been here long enough." He’d been there two weeks. As the correspondent left he glanced at the inscription on Premier Kassem’s photo: “This is my gift to every LAST 5 BAYS_ "WlG'?* “You’ve given me 5 I FANNIE HURST’S ZhJj’Zld I BEST-SELLING NOVEL OF , h / ~ I TODAY'S TORMENTED ... but yourself | GENERATION' when . l . needed A ' j you yjjj*d\ - most!” ■ IlmllM ■MMMMMMaMMMMMMMB* “The color line won’t stop S me, Ma!

The first man married a lady, lost her to the second man and sued him for alienation of affections. He won the suit and a di vorce. The lady then mar ried the second man. Hus band No. 1 wooed his ex wife, successfully. Now Hus band No. 2 is suing for alien ation of affections, and a divorce. TOURISTS: Ed Gardner, of "Duffy’s Tavern,” visited Leningrad, Moscow and Kiev. At an Embassy recep tion he met Andrei Gromyko, who asked how long he’d been in Russia. “Ten days," said Gardner. Gromyko asked, "And what have you seen?" . . . Gardner, think ing he meant the usual tourist sights, said. “Oh, everything.” . . . Gromyko glared at him and said, "Ten days, and you’ve seen every thing in the Soviet Union?" Then he turned away and left.

Dubuque gravely shook Brando's hand, then growled the statement indicating they had one thing in common: “Marlon, I stud ied two years with Stella Adler." MOVIE: Montgomery Clift has been signed by Sam Spie gel for his film production of Tennessee William.’ "Sud denly Last Summer." Spiegel wanted Williams to wort on the movie script in Europe but the playwright refused, even for a fancy fee. The producer found another way: He described the yacht he is chartering for a Mediterra nean cruise.. Williams accept ed his invitation to Join the cruise during which, of course, they'll work on the script. Anthony Perkins was nom inated in 1957 for "Friendly Persuasion.” On the day he lost he made a decision: "I thought to myself—what would I really prefer to have in 1967, a 10-year-old Oscar, or fingernails?” Until then he’d been a chronic nail biter. From that day on he stopped biting his nails. RATWNAL • LAST 8 TIMES! “AAACRKA'S FIRST THEATRR" IWS. 1:9*1 ktaltam.
