Man About Town

Lyle Talbot is getting used to civilian life with Judy Cook Vaughn Paul, the ex of Deanna Durbin, is trying to make Joy Barlow his next … The Humphrey Bogarts are gunning for alleged friends who are trying to divide them.

Free Advt: Rep Martin Dies, as announced, will be given radio time next Sunday eve’g (March 26th) to reply to statements by this reporter, which Mr. Dies claims he can refute, etc… Mr. Dies, not long ago, got careless with his remarks (while not enjoying house immunity) and was sued in a libel action for $75,000 — the costs of which the taxpayers had to pay for him. His big humiliation is this: We recently reported that the Dies Committee (which was formed to uncover subversive activities) had nothing to do with the indictments of the 30 persons now waiting trial for allegedly conspiring against the country. The FBI, the Dept. of Justice and newspapers did the job the Dies Committee was supposed to do.

From the St. Petersburg Times.
