April 12, 1941: FOR THE INFORMATION of the ladies who have written and telephoned about getting jobs in the manufacturing end of the aircraft industry -- Vultee is the company which opened a women's department a week ago and Lockheed is the company which is running tests to learn where women will best fit in.

Virtually all the other companies are also playing with the thought of employing women en masse, says Tom Treanor, who was killed covering World War II for The Times.

George M. Cohan won't OK any actor other than Jimmy Cagney for "Yankee Doodle Dandy," film based on his life, Jimmie Fidler says.
