Helen Kayes Is

HOLLYWOOD Helen Hayes is
making her fust movie in 16 years
and she's "terrified"
"1 never did anything in my life
that I wasn't," the grand little lady
of- the American thcaler reflected.
"The worst thing is, it gels worse
as yoju gel older."

In "My Son John". The plot's a

Director Leo MeCnrey had a
tough time lur'n? Miss Hayes back
to the screen. Numerous long-distance
calls to her in New York got
only polite refusals. He tried put
ting on pressure through mutual
friends. Then he turned up with
out warning at her door. His de
tailed descriotion of the part got
her to accept. But it was all this
attention, she says, that has left
her "still terrified though they
tell me the picture is going well."
She came here with her adopted
son Jamie, 13; her cook, her maid
for 18 years, and a French poodle.
They occupy a Beverly Mills house
rented from Actor Kent Smith.
Miss Hayes never sees the projection-room
showings of previous
days' shooting "they mke me
nervous and insecure." She tried
if years ago. at Gary Cooper"s urg
ing during the filming of "A Fare
well to Arms". Self-consciousness
ruined her next day's work. She
told me: "All I could think of was
getting pretty angles. It was so
artificial. Instead of going to the
rushes, I trust Leo MeCarey to tell
me if I'm wrong."
The only way he has corrected
her is to slow down her character
istic rapid gestures. Over-projection
from stage habit is no prob
lem, Helen said. "I've done so
much radio work it's easy to pull
my voice down." She said she
hadn't returned to pictures soon
er because: "The time was never
right. I was always tied up with a
play or radio series."
Miss Hayes won an Academy Os

Maybe it would describe him bet

In any event, N. C. James went

Buy Good Farm
In acquiring a farm, the James
family departed from the conven
tional procedure Most folks buy a
rundown farm and build it up
(probably because rundown farms
ire about the only kind that have
been on the market lately). Mr.
James bought a good farm from a
good farmer who, like himself,
wanted to push other business that
was more to his liking.
He purchased the Fairview Farm
of J. E. Dooley, Statesville, Route
4. Mr. Dooley lumped in every
thing, including a. fin herd of beef
cattle. He then turned his full at
tention to the operation of his
Mr. James made one more major
change after he got the farm. He
sold out the beef cattle, lock, slock
and barrel, and then started build
ing a dairy herd, To date he has a
boul 125 head. All of the cattle are
grades, although many are pure
bred and probably subject to regis
tration. He still has one more major
change in view. He will gradually
drop his grade Holsteins as they
become over age and replace them
with registered Holsteins,
There are few farms such as N.
C. James' Fairview in North Caro
line. He has added slightly to his
acreage since making the original
purchase and he now has 4 0 0
acres. Less than two acres of the
place is non-productive.
Many farms have small acreages
of fine pasture, high yielding field
crops and miscellanies. Mr. James'
entire acreage Is almost ideally
productive. Every acre is knee
deep in luch ladino-clover - orchard
grass - blue - grass pasture, Al

All of his cattle are from strains

There were no personal injuries,
