&a Speculate On ntai They Would
Da If They Could Do It Over Again
18 ' By Gene Handsaker
u HOLLYWOOD If you had your
J1tfe to live over, WW would you
do differently? I've been popping
' xthis question at movie stars. Here
uae some of the answers.
Hedy Lamarr: "Almost every
thing. I wouldn't get married at
M X2. I missed a hunk of my life
Jhat way. Those years are so im
portantand you can never catch
,;." Would she do "Ecstasy"
,' .again? "That was one of those
.things,' you know. It's been hang
Jing over my head 16 years so I
Jhink I deserve being rid of the
publicity. I'm thinking of my
tnree children. I wouldn't change
$)jat, incidentally my children."
'Victor Mature: "I'd write to my
giother more often.
B Rudy Vallee: "I'd learn to play
the piano in my youth. I'd give
anything, if I could play the piano."
M'Melvyn Douglas: "I'd spend
More time in school. I didn't even
'finish high school at the end of
my junior year I ran away and
(Joined the Army. So much of
what is important in the world
today hinges on a knowledge of
science and math, especially."
Keenan Wynn: "I'd stay in the
New York theater another 16
wars. This Hollywood period of
frustration wouldn't be so long. I
Rve no particular feeling of ac
complishment out here. I keep
doing plays here, but it's like a
(doctor tailing a refresher course
UL the corner drugstore."
Richard Widmark: "I wouldn't
become an actor. I'd immediately
tet out to learn to write. I don't
have a great deal of respect for
acting as a profession.. Unless
you've got enough talent to get the
top a Frederic March, Olivier, or
Walter Huston. Then it means
something. I'd rather be a run-of-
the-mill writer than a run-of-the-mill
actor. But I have no talent for
writing, which probably is why I'd
Ufce to do it so much."
uAngela Lansbury: "I'm not
thinking about living my life over.
I'm just enioying it the way it is."
Olga San Juan: "I'm very happy
Ml I am; I don't regret anything."
Betty Grable: "I wouldn't do any
thing differently. I don't know
how I could have had things
uBob Hope: "I'd get a frog in my
throat like Crosby so I could steal
Hjoney instead of york for It."

before history began, they were
ross fertilized ,and produced a
tijew plant which continued as a
" new type. The new plant gradual
ly, changed and Ultimately became
modern tobacco. The parent plants
. also continued to exist and their
modern descendants still grow
tyar each other here in northwest
Argentina. , - .
' QDrt,6oodspeed discovered one of
tie parents many years ago during
' an exploring trip in this area. In
1942, during another trip, he found

Allied Govenusenl '
FRANKFURT, Germany -(AP)
For the 1 first time since tie
war, the Allied military govern
ment in western Germany is en
couraging the German farmer to
build up his livestock herds. , .
Until now, farmers have been
urged even compelled to de
vote most of their i land to grain
crops badly needed ' for human
food. Grain provided more and
cheaper calories. ' Cattle, pigs, and
ieep were systematically slaugh
tered under, fixed quotas.
: But now, Allied orficlala have
decided that any further reduction
in livestock especially cattle
would endanger the supply of meat
and dairy products. So -they are
setting out to build up the depleted
herds and bring the farm economy
back into balance. Emphasis is
put on quality, however, rather
