I expected it to be a small role, but it was the feminine lead—that of Juno, wife of the god Jupiter.\ Hearing her read was all Porter needed; she was signed. * * * This isn't a comeback in the nor- mal sense. Miss Greenwood has never been out of the theater. She's been away from Broadway, but dur- ing those years she's toured the country in several plays and has made many motion pictures. Wherever she toured, which in- cludes most of the English-speak- ing world, she'd,put on an unad- vertised performance of songs and dances at the end of the play. When \Out of This World\ went into rehearsal, changes were made in her part which had been written originally as straight comedy. \I didn't expect to wind up doing the same things I was known for after the first World War,\ Miss Greenwood said. \But little by little some bits of my old routines injected themselves into the role until now Juno's really a lot like Letty, only more divine, of course, being a god- dess.\ The rehearsals were fine, and so was the out-of-town tryout. But when \Out of This World\ opened in New York, Miss Greenwood ex- perienced the most nerve-wracking moments of opening-night terror she'd ever had. \I'd been away so many years,\ she said, with a wry face at the memory of her ordeal. \I very sud- denly, realized that New York audi- ences would not remember me as did people on the road where I'd played more recently. To them, my jomedy might be merely old-fash- ioned and unamusing. My feeling was something like a soldier in com- oat; I was scared stiff, but I had to go on just the same.\ * * * The ovation that greeted her first entrance was utterly unexpected. \It was so touching, I wanted to stand there and cry,\ she said, \I guess I did, a little, because then I inew they were still glad to see an old friend. It was the most exciting heart-warming feeling in the world —that and tiie knowledge that I'm making new friends, too, of the young people.\ But it was at the end of her last song, when she went into her big routine of hir,h kicks and wide splits, that she stopped the show cold. When she started to raise one long leg ior some typical Green- wood clcwming, the audience let go with a mixture of deafening ap- plause, whistles and shouts of \brr.Vo!\ \And the best part of it is, they've been doing it ever since,\ said Miss Greenwood, grinning happily. \I was really assured when two wo- men waljted by my dressing room after the first night and I heard one say to the other: \That old gal is Just as good as ever.'\ BY ERSKINE JOHNSON NEA Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD, (NEA) — Behind the screen: \Every studio thinks of me as a glamor |loll, not an actress. I'm the girl they call when they need somebody for the honey-watcha-do- ing stuff. Look, I'm one heckuva actress!\ Lois Andrews talking, kiddies. She's fighting mad because Hol- lywood hasn't spotted the Thespian fire in her eye. Lois plays the siren who tries to take MacDonald Carey away from Betty Grable in \Meet Me After the Show\—\I don't succeed, of course, because arable's the star.\ Lois is also gunning for the role of Eva Tanguay in \I Don't Care,\ Says Lois: \I insist on testing for it. In this century there hasn't been more of an I-don't-care girl than Lois Andrews.\ BRIDGE PROBLEMS ByALVERMEBR BID GAME IP YOU HAVE THE CARDS Ava Gardner's opinion of Holly- wood, as quoted in True Story Mag- azine : Tm going to sell my house.

But if North's jump was not forcing, should South have bid again anyway? \In the play, South made 11 tricks. Dummy won the first trick with the ace of diamonds and led the ace of hearts followed by the ijueen of hearts. . \East covered with the king of hearts, and South ruffled. South next cashed the king and ace of spades, drawing trumps. He discard- ed a diamond on the jack of hearts and then ruffed a heart. This set up a heart trick, and declarer wound up losing only one club and one diamond. \However what about the way the hand was bid?\ North's jump to three spades was not forcing. Moreover, South had every right to pass. North should have jumped all the way to four spades instead of mere- ly inviting a game. This would not discourage South from going on if he happened to have enough values to consider a slam. On the con- trary, South should realize that a jump to four spades shows a strong- er North hand than a jump to three spades. When North jumped to three spades, South had reason to think that the North hand was only fairly good instead of very good, South was justified in believing that North could not supply enough to produce game, since with a hand of that quality North would have bid the game instead of just inviting it.

Article No. 6 YOUR INCOME TAX PRIMER (Editor's Note: This is the sixth of 15 authoritative easy-to-follow articles in NEA's 10th annual In- come Tax Primer that Rives the average taxpayer expert advice on handling every item of his return with the least effort, greatest ac- curacy—and minimum payment. It's written by Richard A. Mullens, ranking Washington tax authority who's a graduate of the same train- ing course given Federal agents who scan your own return. As in all oth- er years, it has been prepared in consultation with Bureau of Inter- nal Revenue experts). By RICHARD A. MULLENS NEA Special Correspondent In the past those lucky people with income from dividends or in- terest only reported the total on page 1 of the return. This year, if you file on Form 1040, dividends and interest must be reported in separate schedules on page 2. In these new schedules, you must list separately the amounts received from each corporation or person. Page 2 of Form 1040 also has places for reporting Income from business or profession, from the sale of property, from annuities or pen- sions, from rents and royalties, and from partnerships, estates and trusts. This article tells you how to fill in the schedules for dividends, in- terest, annuities and pensions.

Most payments you receive on stocks will be a dis- tribution of the profits of the cor- poration and must be reported as income. Occasionally a corporation will make a distribution to its stock- holders, not out of its profits, but out of its capital or property. Such distributions are rarely taxable. The corporation should tell you if it is paying a dividend out of capital. Show the name and address of each corporation which paid you a divi- dend in 1950. -Sclwdult B.~INCOME FROM INTEREST Nim latf id*Hi if ju**r iV»$M$9rlea G- Bond Amount s 25 00 Nimtaoriiddroiifpifir Aanst $.

However, if you own any bonds or securities issued by a city or state, the interest on them is not taxed. The interest on many United States bonds issued prior to March 1, 1941, is wholly or partially tax-exempt. You must report interest on sav- ings and deposit accounts when it is credited to your' account even though it has not been entered in your bank book. You should report the interest on bond coupons in the [is the easiest way. year when they become due and payable, even if you don't clip and cash the coupon. You can report the interest on Defense, War and Savings bonds in either of two ways. These are the bonds that pay you $4: for every $3 you invest if you hold them to ma- turity. 1. Ignore them until you cash them, and then report as interest the entire difference between what you get and what you paid. This 2. Report the interest each year as it accrues. The amount of in- terest can be determined from'the table on the back of bond. It is the difference between what you paid and what you could cash the bond for on December 31, 1950. Subtract from this any interest you reported on previous returns, and report the rest. Once you start using this method, you cannot change back to the first without getting permis- sion from your Collector. Schedule K.—INCOME FROM ANNUITIES ORVCNIMONS 1.

This schedule is for computing the taxable income from your pen- sion, retirement pay, annunity or matured endowment policy. All these plans—including those under the Federal Civil Service Retirement System and most State and munici- pal systems—are computed the same way. The computation is rather diffi- cult to understand. The idea is to divide any such Income into two parts—one representing the money you paid Into the plan (which is not taxed). After you have received back tax-free all the money you put in, then the remaining pay- ments are taxed in full. Don't worry if you can't understand the. signifi- cance of the computation. Just fol- low directions and the result will be what the law requires. If you and your wife have income from only one of the plans mention- ed above, use the blanks in Schedule K. If you have more than one, it is easier to do each on a separate sheet of plain paper in exactly the same form as the schedule. Mrs. Public reports her $75 a month retirement pay as shown on the blank. On Line 1 show what you paid, whether as a lump sum, installments or through payroll deductions. Do not inolude amounts contributed by your employer to your pension, Enter on Line 2 the amount you received tax-free before 1860. This is the total of the amounts you re- ceived in all prior years ' less the amount you reported as irucome in those years. For Line 3, subtraot Line 2 from Line 1. As soon as Line 2 equals or exceeds Line 1—that is, as soon as 'you have recovered tax-free ias much as you put in—you can igmore all this computation. Just show otn Line 6 of Schedule E the entire amount you received, during the yeeir, be- cause then it is all taxable. On Line 4 show how much you received during 1950. If Line 4 Is greater than Line 3, subtract Line 3 from Line 4 to get -Line 5. : If Line 4 is not greater than nine 3, write \0\ on Line 5. • • • Now take three per cent ot the amount shown on Line 1. Compare it with the amount on Line .% Whichever is greater goes On Line* 6—but the amount on Line 6 should . not be greater than the amount on Line 4. Endowment Insurance policies that mature in 1950, annuities, pensions and r.etirement,payments are treat- ed alike BUT— Government pensions to war vet- erans or their families are not tax- able nor are- Social Security bene- fits. Armed Forces retirement pay bas- ed on a disability is not taxable. TAX PRIMER Q. * A. Q—I paid $500 in 1944 for a Series G, U. S. Government bond. Every 6 months I get. $6.25 interest. Is this interest taxable? A—Yes. Q—I cashed my $100 war bond and received $90 for it. How much is taxable? A—Only the interest. Since you paid $75 for it and got $90 the in- terest is $15. Q—There was a lot of talk about requiring corporations to withhold tax on dividends paid to stockhold- ers. Is that in effect for 1960? A—No. Corporations did not with- hold tax on your 1960 dividends. CLINIONVILLE Feb. 2—Mrs. Harry Bombard of Au Sable Forks, visited friends here on Wednesday.

Why that difference? Perhaps, it is because so many wives go' Ato marntage with a preconceived' idea of what a good wife is or ought to be'and never bother to check; up to find out if their ideas of what constitutes a good wife are the same as their husbands'. Mary Jones may believe whole- heartedly that she is an excellent wife because she is a good cook, a thrifty housekeeper, and a res^n- sible mother. \Bill Jones, while accepting those qualities as his natural due, may believe that a good wife also should be a happy-hearted; companion, ih- teiiectuaUy capable of keeping up with her husband. JUDGES MARRIAGE BY 'HERSELF If Mary has never bother^ to find out what Bill thinks s 1»ife 'should be—but knows she is , aj 'hat jhe thinks a wife should be-^uien it would be natural for her to as- sume that her marriage is a hap- pier partnership than it actually is. Nobody in the world can. tell a wo- man how to be a good wife. That is something she has to learn after marriage. And she has to. learn the answer by studying her o*m. ^s- band to find out what he needs from the woman who shares his life. The woman who doesn't hold her husband's love and then says self- righteously \I was a good wife to him\ just doesn't understand that a good wife is one who is right for her husband.
