“Our Miss Brooks”
director A1 Lewis
O.K.s star’s picks
A1 Lewis, director of Warner
Bros.’ “Our Miss Brooks,” relies
a great (|ea) on the ju(iKment
of his star, Eve Arden, especially
while casting roles for the mo-
tion picture version of the long-
popular radio-television comedy.
Miss Arden and Lewis have
worked together for more than
eight years to produce one of the
nation’s most popular comedy
shows and have found it pays to
pool their years of experience.
“In casting a part,” says Lewis,
“Eve and I first listen to an ac-
tor’s voice. We may, at times,
seem lude to them because we
deliberately turn our backs.
“If the voice is right, the play-
er is SO per cent cast. Then we
judge for appearance.
“Over a period of years, we
have found that if the voice fits
we can alter appearances to suit
“Dick Crenna, the Walter Den-
ton of our show, is the only one
ever to fool us. The public knows
Dick for his high-pitched, squeaky
voice—actually he has one of the
finest dramatic voices in the bus-
As always, there is the excep-
tion to prove the rule.
“Our Miss Brooks” was produc-
ed by David Weisbart for Warner
Bros. The film will be seen Sun-
day at the Rialto Theatre.

of amended Texas
Additional employers in Gray-
son County became liable under
the amended Texas Unemploy-
ment Compensation Act January
And W. K. Sampson, Office
Mgr., TEC, advises these employ-
ers that establishing payroll re-
porting accounts with the state of-
fice of the Texas Employment
Commission, Brown Building, Aus-
tin will help avoid penalties and
assessments of back taxes.
An amendment to the Btate’s
unemployment compensation laws
extended coverage to all employ-
ers with as many as FOUR em-
ployees on 20 days in 20 differ-
ent weeks, Sampson said. Prior
to January 1, 1956 only firms
who hired eight or more were af-
“The expanded program also
covers a small business which has
four people working only Satur-
days, or one which regularly has
two employees working the day
and two others at night.”
The state program was extend-
ed by the 1955 Legislature to con-
form with Federal statutes al-
ready enacted. “Otherwise,” stat-
ed Sampson, “Grayson County em-
ployers of four to eight people
would not have the advantage of
the Texas system of possibly re-
duced taxes because of employer
experience ratings. And early ac-
tion will mean earlier eligibility
for reduced tax rates.”
Combined Federal and state
taxes begin at 3 per cent of each
annual wage up to $3,000. How-
ever, the state’s program provides
for a possible minimum of 1/10
of one per cent, and the 1955
average rate for rated employers
was .222 per cent. The net Fed-
eral tax is 3/10ths of 17c in ad-
dition to the state tax.
Any Grayson County employer
of four, five, six or seven persons
for 20 weeks during 1955 should
request explanations of the state
TEC office about complying with
the program, Mr. Sampson added.
