BILLINGS COUNTY PIONE[R i g 4g 4t Z ili00i!i00 BEHIND THE SCENES By HARRISON CARRC)LL. . 4 4 Tle long-time romance of actor Jack La Rue and Anne Jordan ap- pears to be finished.  "Believe me, it&apos;s over Jack tells me. "She took offense because I went to the track one day without her. I've had it. I,m not dating any- body else but I am going to." When I called her, Anne was more relaxed about the situation. "Jack and I have our arguments," she said, "and recently they have been getting worse and worse. But I had rather not do much talking. I'm a nobody out here and Jack is well known. Let him give out what- ever story suits his purposes." On the 'rerror in a Texas Town" set, Sterling Hayden reveals that the windjammer he purchased in Seattle safely rode through Santa Barbara's big wind in which many other srraller craft were damaged or destrdyed,,. Carol Kelly, who has her first starring role with Sterling in this movie, says she will trek east this] December to attend the Broadway I opening of sister Nancy Kelly's play, "The Gnius and the Goddess." Carols own career is booming. She's set to start another western, "The Blue Chip," with M.ark Ste- vens and Forrest Tucker. Although the romance still is of- ficially on, it looks as if Jon Hall and Linda Danson may be drifting apart. When Jon gets back from Hawaii and leaves for Florida to shoot scenes for his movie, "Forbidden Island," Linda probabl5" will be va- cationing in Mexico City. But a tip-off to the girls who keep writing ardent letters to Jon: Linda still opens all his mail when the message is particularly tender, she pencils across the top: "See, everybody loves you." Their itinerary remains fluid, but Mitzi Gaynor and Jack Bean are very excited about their overseas trip in January. "Until we actually get away, we are just dreaming," Jack tells me, "but we plan to visit Hong Kong, Bali, Bangkok, Calcutta, Cairo, Beirtt, Athens, Vienna, Munich, Paris and, of course, Rome, where we will stay with the Rossano Braz- zis. "I think it will be mutually bene- ficial if Mitzi makes appearances a- long the way to ballyhoo her MGM picture 'Les Girls." One thing is sure. The two will ,be back here in time to attend the 1Varch 15 premiere of Mitzi's latest movie, "South Pacific." As of now, Frank Sinatra doesn't plan to make another picture until October. It will be "Hole in the Head" tPaul Douglas did it on the stage), and Frank tells me the en- tire film will be shot in Miami. ohn Drew Barrymore says he has informal discussions with two at- torneys, Ralph Marks and Arthur Desser, about the possibility of su- ing Warner Brothers over the hand- ling of his father, the late John Barrymore in ''Too Much, Too Soon," but he has no immediate plans for legal action. "I am anx- ious to read the script," he add. Bing Crosby changed his mind and will not visit bride Kathy Grant on the location of Columbia's "Gunman's Walk." "He had planned to corre and play some golf," says Kathy, "but decided against it. We talk on the telephone every night." Anita Ekberg's husband, Tony Steel, won't be back here until March. Before taking off for Europe, he told me that Anita will stay with him. until she is called back here for a Hollywood picture. Ringsiders at the Mocambo to hear Peggy King.

Jerry Lewis met my 'new column assistant Dean Gautschy, and cracked, "On this set, your name will be Phil Gautsehy." Hollywood legal trouble may be coming up for Warners on the film version of Diana Barrymore's '"too Much, Too Soon." Former tennis star John Howard, ex-husband of the Tempestuous Diana, tells me he has retained at- Torney Stanley Zipper to look after his interests in case the film in- fringes upon any of his rights. Howard, now an outomobile sales executive here, happily re-married and the father of a baby, says: "I have been trying to forget those old days. Warners told me not to worry and made me prom- ises which they have not kept. If necessary, I certainl will sue them." Ironically, actor Ray Danton, who'll portray Howard in the film, is getting tennis coaching for the picture from Beverly Hills hotel pro Frank Feldtrop, who originally ': WINNIE HEARTY AT 85--On his 83rd birthday, Sir Winston Church- Ill, former British Prime Minister, relives his stirring years as wartime leader as he talks with Field Marshal Viscount Mont- gomery at the Churchill country home in Westerham, England.

"Ingrid and I never even discuss- ed her coming to Hollywood," he says. "England will be home base for us on "The Inn of Eight Happi- nesses.' The rest of the picture will be shot in Formosa."

At the Luau I saw with Jayne Mansfield, Mickey Hargitay and Jayne's daughter, Jaynie Marie, who still was hungry enough after a party celebrating her seventh birth- day to eat six spareribs. Jaynie Marie is just a year younger than Mickesr's daughter by his marriage to Mary Birg. Accard- ing to Mickey, he has been free since his wife obtained a divorce in Indianapolis in September 1956. Jerry Lewis was very funny when I asked him if he and wife Patti are going to buy the former home of Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart. "It may sound stupid," cracked Jerry, "to say we have 19 rooms in our present home and it's still too small, but, every time we have a new baby, things get crowded. "As a matter of fact, I was think- ing of finding out what the Beverly Hilton hotel would cast. It would be swell to have Patti and me on the seventh floor and the children on the sixth. '' Since Marlon Brendo is playing an American Indian in his next picture, "Commancheros," I wonder- ed if there might be a part for his bride Anna Kashfi, who says she is an Indian frorrt the opposite side of the world. There is not, I'm told, and, furthermore, Brando frowns on working in a picture with his wife. Asked why he was taking his 10- year-old daughter Rory to the WA- IF's Imperial ball, Errol Flynn cracked, " To protect me from be- ing arrested." To the question "Are you and Harry Karl adopting another baby?" Marie McDonald replied, "A fat no no comment. Marie Wilson's exper- ience has been a lesson to us all."

M. Schultz, of Schultz Mach- iner co. Covering all phases of the highway program, the film was pro- duced by Caterpillar Tractor co., in cooperation with the U. S. depart- ment of commerce, bureau of pub- lic roads. Narrated by popular commentator Walter Cronkite, "The Road Ahead" describes the interstate - defense highway ,system with its 41,000 miles of supper roads. Showing step-by- step how the new highway will be built, the movie also explains what effect they will have on communit- ies and businesses. People whose towns already have interstate-type roads tell how they were helped by. the highways. Such terms as "relief routes," "limited access" and "right-of-wa procure- ment" are fully defined. In addition, "Vhe Road Ahead" covers the other phases of the con- struction program: Farm-to-market roads, state routes and present U. S. Highways. P. M. Schultz says that those interested in better roads can i learn more about the entire new outlook on American roads through the film. Groups and organizations who would like to find out about "The Road Ahead" can contact Schu2z Machinery co. at Bismarck or Minot. Total world production of urani- um metal in 1956 was estimated to be between 14,000 and 15,000 tons. RADAR UNIT FOR MARINES--This is an artist's conception of the portable tactical early warning radar system, now under develop- ment for the Marine Corps, which will detect close or distant high-speed enemy aircraft or missiles.

HURRICANE HITS HAWAII--As Nine, first hurricane in the history the Hawaiian Islands, hit the "Paradise of the Pacific," Hono- lulu (1) reported power blackouts, trees blown over and plane traffic disrupted. Naval aircraft on Oahu has been removed to Midway Island or maialand points. The full force of the blow was directed at Kauai (2). Low-lying coastal areas were evacuated FISH HOUSES NOT LEGAL UNTIL DECEMBER 15th Fish houses cannot be placed on a lake before Dec. 15th, announced Joyce Boehm, license clerk for the game and fish department. Many inquiries about obtaining fish house licenses already have been received by the department. Chapter 169, section 8 of the 19@5 supplement to the game laws states that "licenses shall be issued by the commissioner for the period between Dec. 15th and March lst". A fish house license costs $1. Each angler may have as many fish houses as he wishes, as long as he purchases a separate license for each one. As long as each house is licensed, as many anglers as the owner cares to invite may use it. Each house must ,be constructed, of floatable ,material and must have the name and the license number of the owner painted on the outside in letters as least six inches high. Last year 513 ish house licenses were issued to winter fishermen in North Dakota. This was the largest number of stch permits ever issued. Each year the number of fish houses in use has increased as winter ang- lers discover how " much these helters add to the pleasure of fishing through the ice.
