HOLLYWOOD — Kirk Douglas
was chosen by the board of direc-
tors of the Hollywood Foreign
Press Association as the 1968 reci-
pient of the much coveted Cecil
B. DeMille Award, a singular honor

SOL LEWIS of Displays Un
limited and director of the ESP
Research Center in Oak Park,
didn't respond to a hunch he had
coming back from Flint last week,
so was forced to fix a flat tire in
pouring rain . . . and, incidently,
the first flat he ever fixed by him-
self . . . Upon approaching a rest
area off the expressway, complete
with a snack bar and gas station,
he had a strong impulse to turn in
and relax . . . So strong that it
was almost hypnotic . . . But he
decided to go on ahead because of
the heavy rain . . . with the result
that his tire blew only a few hun-
dred yards away ... From now on,
says Sol, he'll respect every hunch

WHILE SAYING HER prayers,
last wee k, 4-year-old Martha
Abrams, daughter of Sylvia and
Leon, was visited in her bedroom
by Aunt Sadie Hoptman from New
York, staying at the house ... "It's
a pleasure," said auntie, "to hear
you saying your prayers so well.
You speak so earnestly and seri-
ously, and mean what you say and
care about it" . . . "But auntie,"
little Martha answered, "you
should hear me gargle!"

MORRY SCHLUSSEL received a
call at his service station to come
out and help a customer get started
.. . Morry went himself and dis-
covered that all the gent needed
was a slight push, which he pro-
ceeded to give the stranded auto
... For blocks and blocks, Morry's
truck pushed b u t nothing hap-
pened . . . Finally, Morry stopped,
got out and walked over to the
stricken vehicle, shaking his head
in disbelief . . Disgustedly, be
asked the customer if the key was
turned on . . . "Oh, are you sup-
posed to do that? asked the motor-
ist as Morrie hit the side of his
head to make sure he was hearing
ducer, and Bob Henry as the pro-
ducer-director. Your Hollywood
columnist made the introductory
remarks as president of HFPA.
The Hollywood Foreign Press
Association honors Douglas fore-
most as a good American who has
undertaken numerous trips abroad
as an "image-maker" for our gov-
ernment. The actor has done a
great deal for humanitarian causes
and is a constant inspiration in
fund-raising activities for the Jew-
ish people here and in the State
Kirk Douglas has distinguished
himself in scores of motion pic-
tures since he rose to stardom
20 years ago in Stanley Kramer's
"The Champion." Most recently
Douglas has returned from Italy
where he completed for his own
company and Paramount the con-
temporary drama of "The Brother-
hood," with Alex Cord, Irene Pa-
pas, Luther Adler and Susan Stras-
berg under Martin Ritt's direction.
Son of a Russian-Jewish Immi-
grant, born 51 years ago, he serv-
ed in the U.S. Navy during World
War II. Discovered on the New
York stage by Hal Wallis, he made
his screen debut as a villain in
"The Strange Case of Martha
Ivers." He since has been a war-
rior returning from the Trojan
wars in "Ulysses;" a Nordic hero
of medieval days in "The Viking;"
Vincent van Gogh in "Lust for
Life;" the rebellious "Spartacus;"
a refugee from Nazi oppression
arriving in Israel in "The Jug-
gler:" a tragic character from
Greek antiquity in "Mourning Be-
comes Electra." He was the ice-
cold killer in "Gunfight at the
OK Corrall" and the French offi-
cer of World War I torn by his
own conscience in "Paths of
He played Mickey Marcus in
the more recent epic of Israel's
war of independence, in "Cast
a Giant Shadow." In "Heroes
of Telemark," he fought the Ger-
man invaders in Norway in
World War H; "Is Paris Burn-
ing?" saw him in the ranks of
the high brass in France at the
time of the liberation in 1944.

employing thousands of Hollywood
craftsmen and extras.
