Some months ago, when Marion Hall (above) first got a Job In
the movies, Hollywood press agents pictured her In a marine uni
form because her father is a lieutenant-colonel in the corps, and
thereby drew a rebuke for making an undignified use of the
marine uniform. Taking no more chances, the publicity boys
now are photographing her in a bathing suit which seems much
better idea anyway.
OuUof-Siate FarmWorkers
In Preferred Mileage Class
Alarmed over a sudden exodus
of farm workers who fear they
will be stranded in California
by impending gas rationing, the
War Manpower commission Mon
day announced that out-of-state
farm workers will be in the
preferred mileage" class, with
allowance for enough gasoline
to reach their homes.
In another development Im
portant to the success of WMC's
current farm:, recruiting drive,
Attorney General Francis Bid-
die announced in Washington
that Mexican-workers will be
granted temporary immigration
clearance when they are properly
certified by the United States
employment service.
During the day reports filtered
in from rural areas to the Farm
Security Administration and oth
er government agencies that hun
dreds of desperately needed farm
laborers were leaving the state
in an effort to "beat the ration
ing deadline. .
Actually, OPA officials ex
plained, gasoline rationing will
probably not go into effect in
Pacific coast states for at least
four weeks. By that time, said
regional director William K.
Hopkins of WMC, the harvest
crisis will be less acute. Further.
in accordance with OPA ration
ing regulations as now in effect
in eastern states, farm workers
will be given enough gasoline to
reach their homes or even other
areas where they are needed.
Sell it through the want-ads.
