GEGILE DEMILLE GIVES REASONS WHY HE PRODUCED TEN GOMMANDMENTS'MOVIE NEW YORK, (AJP) ^ Cecil DcMllle, producer of "The Ton (Tommandmonts," Is turning over his share of the earnings from the great biblical production^ .fc^^^tf(lit jfun^ 'or charitable, religious and educational purpose^'rdve9)e|i th New York this wee|( that tho main reason he setiOUt to ihluC6 the,$lSMi-mlliion film-was, as he put it, "because I believe deeply that the Ten C!ommandments given on Mount Slnal are not laws. They ore the Law! They are the expres¬ sion: of the mind of God for His creatures. They arc the charter and guide for human liberty, for there qan be no liberty without law." The militant producer said that hla production "Is the most modern picture I have ever made, because the struggle between the forces represented by Moses and those represented by Pharaoh is still being, waged today." Referring to modern dictators without mentioning names, De- MiUe asked: "Are men to be ruled by law or by the whim of an in¬ dividual? The answer to this timely question," he said, "was given some three thousand years ago on Mount Sinai." Citing Sir Winston CHiurchlU's reference to the Slnaltic event as being "the most decisive leap forward ever dlscernable in human his¬ tory," DeMllle referred to Moses as "Everyman—in his pride, his bitterness and heroism." "The God of the bible ia not a wishy-washy God." DeMllle added. "He is a God of love—but of love that burns." /wfoPOUO MCTtM*. !RG¥0/^.P/AieS MJumur HADASSAH-LAZARUS STYLE SHOW IS SCHEDULED By FELICE SCHIFFMAN' Columbua Chapter of Senior HadossAh this week Is announc¬ ing Ita big style show, in coop- oration with the F & R Lazarus Co., Wednesday, Fob. 27, 8 p. m., at the Jewlah Center.
