By VIRGINIA VALE Margaret o’brien has the Technicolor Blues. She’s doing a color pic ture for M-G-M, “The Unfin ished Dance,” and as a result —(1) she can’t play tag or hopscotch between scenes with the other children; her face gets so flushed that it shows up beet-red when she returns to work; (2) she can’t roller-skate; falls down so often that her bruised knees MARGARET O’BRIEN show up like sunsets. As a result she’s become an expert at jacks, so good that few little girls will ' play with her, and has taken to swimming, with characteristic zeal. In fact, she’s become so good at ! it that she wants to do a picture with Esther Williams. She likes col or pictures, but says they’re exas perating to make! Jack Leonard makes his film de but in “The Guilt of Janet Ames,” at Columbia, starring Rosalind Russell and Melvyn Douglas. A juke box favorite, he was a featured singer with Tommy Dorsey from 1936 to 1940.

Some 1,500 middies, lis tening to a warm-up speech by Milo Boulton before “We, the Peo ple” was to be broadcast from there, let out a howl when part of Phil Baker’s “Take It or Leave It” came through, and they heard Baker say, “And now you have 30 seconds to answer tonight’s jack pot question, ‘What is the name of the Secretary of the Navy?’ ” Nancy Lauck, daughter of Chet Lauck, who’s “Lum” of “Lum and Abner,” celebrated her 13th birth day not long ago, and was given a St. Bernard puppy, her favorite present.

Late shooting on the C. B. DeMille set left her so little time that she arrived wearing the tattered dress of a bond slave, her role in “The Unconquered.” She had to sacrifice those terrifically long fingernails for the part.

Aristocrats of Stock World To Be Shown at International Famed Exhibition To Draw Entries From All States By W. J. DRYDEN WNU Farm Editor. Only a few hours before the shattering blow of Japanese sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, the curtain had been rung down on the greatest International Live Stock exposition ever held in Chicago’s International am phitheater. Now, five years later, the curtain will rise on the 43rd edition of the famed International, universally heralded as the “world’s greatest” livestock exposition, in the same amphitheatre setting, on November 30. The exposition, ranked as one of the leading exponents for live stock improvement, was disbanded during war years. Revival of the International after the wartime lapse will be marked by color and fanfare at opening day ceremonies in the amphitheatre, which is the largest structure in the world devoted to livestock exposi tions. The show will continue until December 7. Improved Show Seen. . All Indications are that the 1946 International will far excel the one held in 1941 in all respects. Missing, however, will be B. H. Heide, for years general manager of the show. William E. Ogilvie, former assist ant manager, who has been identi fied with the International more than 20 years, will serve as manager for 1946. With exhibitors registered from every state, the entry list may surpass the previous high of 13,149 animals representing all leading breeds and breeders of North America. In addition the junior department, including the 4-H club, will be represented by 2,000 young breeders. The National Boys’ and Girls’ 4-H Club congress is an important fea ture of the International. Many of the grand champion awards are car ried away by the youngsters in com petition with their elders. In addi tion, junior contests are held for the various breeds, as well as for meat animals, garden, girl’s record, cloth ing, food preparation, canning, better methods of electrical use, home beautification, achievement, leader ship, poultry, dairy foods, field crops ! and frozen foods.

Entries in the sheep department will pass the 900 head record, with exhibits from at least 20 states. Short downs are usually numerically the largest, closely followed by Shrop shires and Hampshires. Stress Wool Show. To encourage production of better wool, to stimulate interest in proper preparation of wool for market and to ascertain commercial grading of fleeces of the various breeds, spe cial emphasis is being placed on the wool show. This year’s barrow show is expect ed to surpass all previous exhibitions in interest and size. This is attrib uted to postwar production condi tions and increased interest among boys and girls. Bulk of the entries will come from the Corn Belt region. By counting the carlot entries as individuals, nearly 2,500 hogs will be entered in the International. Many of the entries will be shown by leading colleges of the nation, as in the case of cattle and sheep en tries. There may be fewer horses on the farms than 10 years ago but entries at the International will indicate no shortage. Draft horses from many states and Canada will compete for the val uable list of awards. Draft geld ing show will be particularly strong. Breeders are reporting a greatly revived interest in horse breeding, which has en couraged tlie breeders to display their wares. Most popular feature of the Inter national, to the general public, is the evening horse show. Outstand ing youths, harness classes, three gaited classes, hackneys, roadsters and saddle classes will be shown. Shetlands, harness horses, hunters and jumpers will put on a show that has seen few equals. Arrange Displays. With 4-H clubs, commercial or ganizations and U.

Corn kings, wheat kings and hay queens will be competing against corn princes, wheat princes and hay princes. The junior division is al ways on hand to give strong com petition to their elders. Junior en tries are also winning factors in the carlot contests of cattle, hogs and sheep. The entries will be larger than usual. : ’-wsisjh Ska %§9BI * CLASSIC OF SHOW ...

Turkey eaters, honing their appetites this holiday season, will not want for tangy cran berry sauce, for another bumper crop of the tart berry that adds tradition as well as zest to holiday feasts has been harvested in the Cape Cod district. True to form, the Cape Cod sector again will supply about two-thirds of the nation’s cranberry supply. Occasionally, as in 1944, the Cape Cod crop falls short of expectations and the berry is scarce in the na tion’s grocery stores. Thousands of harvesters, working with slotted scoops and nimble fin gers through the fall months, have combed the nation’s bogs to gather more than 800,000 barrels. The crop is second only to the 1937 output of 877,300 barrels. In 1942 as well as in 1937, Massachusetts marshes pro duced a few thousand barrels more than their estimated total of 550,000 barrels for the present crop. More than $50,000,000 is invested in the scientific business of growing and processing cranberries. The in dustry puts to use about 50 square miles of land that previously lay waste, unsuited to any other type of agriculture. The new crop, worth about $9,000,000, will reach stores in the form of sauce, juice and dehy drated fruit, as well as in raw fruit form.
