French Beauty Reverses Trend,
Says She Likes American Men
By BOB THOMAS
HOLLYWOOD (AP) — Ameri-
can men can take a bow. A French
beauty says' they’re even more
polite than her countrymen.
This is a strong statement,
Frenchmen being noted for their
continental manners. But actress
Nicole Maurey, visiting America
for the third time, makes this ob-

much more courtly at all times.
They remember the little things,

and made comfortable.

“To the Frenchman, such mat-

less he wants to make love to the
girl. Then no one can beat him for
“But to the American, courtesy
is an everyday concern. It is part
of the difference of attitude. Here
the woman is important. In France
she is not so.”
Despite her feelings about the
woman’s position here, Nicole is
not ready to settle in this country.
She feels it is bad for an actress’
“I think a European makes a
mistake to stay in Hollywood and
wait fer' jobs," she observed. “If
the studios know you are here and
not working, they think there
must be a reason. But if you keep

NEW YORK (AP)—America’s
pocket mopey is on the rise. Pri-
vate industry it paying out eight
billion dollars more this year than
last in wages and salaries.
Businessmen are competing
fiercely for their share of total
personal income—now running at
an annual rate of around 296 bil-
lion dollars, some 11 billion more
than a year ago.
Wage scales—like those being
hammered out in the auto and
steel industries—are taking big-
ger jumps than last year. Hun-
dreds of companies have signed
labor contracts and the majority
have hiked pay by 7tj cents to
10 cents an hour—a 50 per cent
increase over last year’s 5 to 7-

of retail trade.

Mere to Spend
As a result of ‘the big boom in
business in general, the public has
more to spend today than ever
before. It is now spending at an
annual rate of 343 billion dollars,
according to government figures,
Optimists think this.may grow to
251 billion next year.
After spending what is neces-
sary for food, clothing, shelter,
transportation and the like, the
public now has about 140 billion
dollars a year it can spend or not
as it chooses. Before World War
II people had 30 billion dollars

To Triple Service
NEWINGTON. N.H. (AP) —
Workmen today are in the first
phase of a 40-million-dollar proj-
ect to link North America and
Britain with the world’* trans-
ocean telephone cable.
When the project is completed
—expected in the summer of 1956
—2,000 miles of cable will stretch
under the Atlantic, which in
places is 2Va miles deep.
The cable will contain 36 con-
versation circuits—30 for Anglo-
American calls and six for calls
between Canada and England.
That almost triples the present
radio-telephone capacity between
the United States and Britain.
