Man About Town

Mrs. Eleanor Roosevelt (newspaper row hears) is fed up with the way some syndicate clients chop her column to appease local subscribers … Drew Pearson made the identical squawk. Pearson’s beef was that some editors delete the punchiest stuff … A model who won a film contract lost it because (while woofled) she talked too much at the Mocambo in Hollywood…. Ethel Barrymore and her director, Clifford Odets, have eased the tension and dropped the boxing gloves.

From the St. Petersburg Times.
