City Community Chest is going to depend on a two night porchlight campaign to reach its quota for 1960 That decision was made Saturday in a meeting of Chest representatives with the board of the Mason City Junior Cham ber of Commerce We can see where we may raise as much as more from the pledge cards still out said Supt P 0 Brunsvold the campaign chairman There are about 500 good cards still out We still are going to have to depend in this Thanksgiving season on the generosity of Mason Cityans who already have done very well We know that most of them already have tried to do their fair share for the Community Chest Unfortunately we still will have to ask all who are able to give at least a dollar more The Jaycees agreed for a porchlight campaign Tuesday and Wednesday nights from PARTLY CLOUDY

analyzed Two factors hurt chances By JOE HYAMS New York Herald Tribune News Service HOLLYWOOD Hollywood claimed to be surprised when the beauty and brains mar riage of Marilyn Monroe anc was playwright Arthur Miller washed up after four years three months and 13 days The real surprise to this re porter is that the marriage lasted so long in the face of statistics which I compiled je cently indicating that the aver age film star first marriage lasts three years the average of the second marriage for both partners involved lasts little more than 18 months Marriages involving socalled sex as well as female are of even shorter tenure WHAT MAKES the statistics even more disheartening is the fact that twice married stars inevitably marry a third time and that marriage generally lasts less than a year What is the trouble with Hol lywood marriages Its not always as most peo ple believe because of the en try of a third party into the marriage scheme Its usually a combination of two factors A study of 100 random studio biographies of film stars re vealed that 86 of Hollywoods most famous personalities came from broken homes which means one or both of the part n e r s involved in marriage missed out on a normal family life and therefore had no one 7 to p m The Jaycees will recruit the manpower to stop al every house where a porchlight is lit Donations received will be listed by the campaigners and the names and amounts will ap pear in the GlobeGazette the following day In this way con tributors will be assured that their donations are accounted for The necessity of reaching this years Chest quota was stressed in the meeting with the Jaycee board members Absolutely no cushion was provided in this years allowances to the Red Feather agencies which make up the Chest goal IN THE EARLY summer it was explained the Red Feather agencies turned in their requests for grants from the Community Chest during 1961 Those re quests totaled more than 000 YEAR AGO Maximum Minimum 34 24 33 40 14 A group of men interested in the Chest agreed that this was a larger amount than could reasonably be expected to come from pledges in the annual cam paign For that reason it was hought necessary to conduct prebudget hearing meetings with representatives of the Red leather agencies responsible or making up their budgets At these sessions at least a lalf hour being spent with each agency the budget requests ivere trimmed of every possible dollar The committees aim vas a campaign goal The accounts of all the agen cies were carefully scrutinized Iven operating balances were C R Jewetf Osage dies in accident OSAGE Clifford Raymond Jewett 62 assistant Mitchell County engineer was killed in a onecar accident Friday nigh six miles north of here on

rolled over at least twice and landed on its top 400 feei from the pavement by thrown rimmed from their requests h each case the balance on to emulate The second hand was deducted from the 961 budget before the amount needed from the Chest was ap roved The result after formal hear ngs with the Chest budget com mittee was a goal of This amount is considered an bsolute minimum for the 1961 perations of the Red Feather gencies Brunsvold pointed out THERE WAS an implied promise for the community that this budget would be raised he said We must make good on that promise if we want to factor is moviejhave a Community Chest the sex sym doomed to live in a private world surrounded by mirrors in which they are com pelled to stare at their image until like Narcissus the boy in the fable they fall into the river and drown while trying to embrace their own image IRONICALLY they must have this narcissism or they would lack the driving force which makes them able to succeed in a business based on ego and sex projection The only love affair of which they are capable is with their reflection in a mir ror Many of Hollywoods beauti ful women and handsome men are so completely selfcentered they are unable to be interested in or excited by another per son They are incapable of ex periencing that keen awareness of the opposite sex which is the foundation of love When a film star marries someone out of the profession the chances of a lasting and happy marriage are almost halved because most nonprofes sionals are unable to under stand or cope with the needs of the acting partner The truth is most actors are incapable of sharing therefore incapable of loving The truth is that many of the men and women who are loved gods and goddesses on the screen are able to project on project screen an emotion they cannot experience with another person We know that Mason Cityans will be able to sit down happily to their Thanksgiving dinners knowing that our welfare and youth agencies are
