Walter Winchell says: Capt. J. Patterson (or his double), according to startled staffers, made visits to the Times publisher several times last week. What’s cookin? … Morton Downey and Molly Vanderbilt are the town’s most serious romance … Luise Rainer’s newest interest in life is V. Bendix, the industrialist… Allen Dulles,* brother of Dewey’s chief adviser, is back from Switzerland, where he was “stranded” for two years. He will talk off-the-record at the Council on Foreign relations … Several war correspondents are less optimistic than they were three weeks ago about the war ending this year.

Louella Parsons says: All the battles Sam Goldwyn had with Warner Bros. over obtaining the rights to “Those Endearing Charms” will come to naught. At the time he purchased the play it was taken to the Dramatists Guild for a settlement on the claim Sam had bought it before Warners did. Now he isn’t going to make it after all. He’s sold it, I understand, through his agent to RKO. Charles Koerner will star Laraine Day, whose contract he shares with MGM.

Danton Walker says: Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, far from being flattered by Geraldine Fitzgerald’s glamorous impersonation of herself in “Wilson,” has indicated her disapproval to Darryl Zanuck in no uncertain terms… Louis B. Mayer’s renewed interest in religious matters dates, they say, from his serious conversations with Archbishop Spellman in New York last spring.

LIBRA: Inactive star indications now. Let added vigor influence work and projects no little. Mark time where you should. Keep tuned to step into action on favorable wave.

*Allen Dulles was, of course, serving in the OSS and was later head of the CIA.
