HOLLYWOOD, Dec. 12 (UP)]
Franchot Tone, the screen's
"perfect gentleman.'" apologized
In court yesterday for spitting In
the face of columnist Florabel
Muir but was fined $400 anyway
and given a suspended Jail sent-
ence after he pleaded guilty to
her battery charge.
Tone denied that he kicked
the woman or used vile language
during a tiff at Clro's restaurant.
But he admitted he gave vent
too freely to his feelings.
"I must now publicly apologize
and say I'm very sorry for my
part In what happened." Tone
said In a dramatic voice which
nearlv broke with emotion.
"I feel it was wrong to give
way to my feelings of hurt and,
humiliation and I lost my sense
of proportion and good conduct.
Tone was brought into court
on assault and battery charges
after Miss Muir made an on-the-
spot cltlsen's arrest to the swank
Sunset Strip night club Oct. SO,
shortly after the actor returned
to Hollywood wllfa his bride, ac-

asked Tone, "flow do you plead?

said In a low. firm voice.
"But I would like the court t:
know that I did not kick the
complainant and did not use any
Draeger then dismissed the as-
sault count, retaining the charge
Tone explained that he spit at
Miss Muir "because she admit-
ted in print to listening in on1
conversations of the woman that
I was about to marry and used
this Information to her newspa-
per work."' .
Miss Muir was not In cour} but
her attorney, S. S. Hahn. object-
ed to Tone's statement that she
had listened to on conversations
of Barbara Payton.
Judge Draeger then pointed
out that if he permitted the
statement to stand he would
have to order an investigation
into any allegations of wiretap-
ping, a felony in California.
Tone then amended his re-
mark to say he became angry
when he read in Miss Mulr's col-
umn that she had Information
on Miss Peyton's conversations
over the telephone.
The Judge then gave Tone a
45-day suspended sentence and
ordered him to pay $200 of the
fine Immediately "and the bal-
ance at the rate of $50 a month,
beginning Jan. 5."
He explained that the tine
should be paid on an installment

decision was made to take a

They gambled on being
able to settle the Korean af-

They knewi for instance, that
the newest Jet fighters had to
be built with tapered alumi-

They knew that the new tur-

Immediately. And they wanted
to use this time to give the
forces the best possible wea-

That decision was part of the
over-all plan, also based on
the assumption that all-out
war could lie avoided for the
present, to try to keep civilian
production going as normal as
possible while broadening the
whole Industrial base for event-
ual total mobilization.
This meant sacrificing some
immediate arms deliveries to
getting all of industry in a bet-

The big gain, if the gamble
paid off, was the avoidance of

Defense Output Has Tripled,

Charles E. Wilson said yesterday
that defense production has
tripled since this time last year
but still Is only 50 per cent of
what It will be when rearma-

"We have been placing orders
at the rate* of nearly 1,000,000,-

"And actual deliveries of mil-

three times what It was this

"From now on there will be
a steady rise in production to

are highly unrealistic," Wilson
He said the expansion of pro-
duction facilities and a Bigger
turnout of basic metals are just
as vital to any defense move-
ment as production of arms.
Arms production might also
be slowed because designs in
weapons change from time to

cated a smaller yield than had
' been expected... government
estimates fell from an August
i prediction of more than 17-and-1
la-quarter million bales to the
December forecast of 15 mil-
lion, 200-thousand bales.

the first time in four years that

All in all, the Paris meeting up

uneasy sensation that military

Washington is less disposed every

Talullah Sniffles As Maid's
Lawyer Argues Tilth/ Casel
NEW YORK, Dec. 12 (UP)
Tallulah Bankhead broke into
tears in court yesterday when
the lawyer defending her per-;
sonal maid declared the maid
would testify the actress used1
narcotics and rarely was sober..
He said the maid, charged with'
altering checks signed by the ac-|
tress, "took care of Miss Bank-
head's gigolos" and the money
she is accused ot stealing "was
spent for sex."
Tears filled Miss Bankhead's
eyes and she shook her head as
defense attorney Fred G. Morltt
became more specific in bis
opening statement to an ll-male
Jury about "perversion" and the
"dirty, filthy case" he had
threatened Monday to present.
The maid, Mrs. Evyleen Ram-
sey Cronin, 59, is charged in a
32-count larceny and forgery in-
dictment with raising Miss
Bankhead's checks for "inciden-
tal expenses." The alleged theft
in New York Count totaled
"One very celebrated television
and radio star, a very distin-
guished person, brought loose
marijuana to Miss Bankhead.:
Miss Bankhead always referred!
to it as 'tea.' That was in case
the police came around," the

Later Miss Bankhead told re-1
porters the tactics being used by
her former maid's attorney were
"the lying defense of a thief";
and said she would prove it.
Assistant District Attorney Je-
rome Kidder said in the prose-
cution's opening statement to
the Jury, that after the thefts
were discovered, Mrs. Cronin told
the actress: "If you do anything
about it. 111 accuse of this ana
this and this.'*
-However, that threat, which
apparently is flow coming true,
did not deter us from proceed-
ing, or Miss Bankhead from do-
ing her duty as a citizen."
Morltt told the Jury he would
prove, that Mrs. Cronin paid for
some of the actress' incidental
expenses herself and would tell
about buying marijuana cigar-
"Mrs. Cronin wUl testify that
Miss Bankhead taught her how
to roll marijuana cigarettes and
that she became very adept and
in four or five hours she was
able to roll 98 ot them," Morltt
He also contended that some
of the expense money was paid
for "cocaine for Miss Bankhead."
"Reluctantly," be said, "we'll
prove that the lady was.never
soberor rarely sothat she
spent a fortune for booze and
champagne, that she not only
earned more than $3,000 a week,
but lived on that scale."
Miss Bankhead. daughter of
the late House Speaker William
B. Bankhead, and a stage star
for more than SO years, sat on
the front row of the spectators',
section near the Jury box.
She told reporters:
"These are irresponsible, vic-
ious lieshe (Morltt) knows it,
and 111 prove it.
"I never had her (Mrs. Cronin)

did she ever buy sex for me. This
woman was in burlesque before
I was born.
"I depend for my livelihood on

She said she would not i
through with "this shocking vili-
fication" if she had anything to
fear or if she were not ready to
meet all charges "head-on."
The defense lawyer said that

was with her, Miss Bankhead
"had only three lovers that we
