OKLAHOMA CITY, March 15—
(fPy-A New York investment firm
interested in financing the proposed
new turnpikes in Oklahoma pre-
dicted today it would be possible
to start work on the 310 miles of
highways by autumn.
Allen and company wrote mem-

"There is no reason why prelim-
inary cost and traffic studies can-
not be completed and ready in
three to four months so actual work
can get started early this fall.”

TJOLLYWOOD, March 15—(U.R)—
W Mitzi Gaynor’s mother never
raised her girl to be a cowboy. But
that’s what Mitzi’s become, and as
far as Mitzi is concerned that’s what
she’s going to continue to be.
“Ive gone overboard for the
whole bit," she says. “Boots, sad-
dles, everything. I’m even think-
ing of trading my car for a horse.”
The western bug bit Mitzi at the
start of “The Young Texans," an
action drama in which Miss G.
plays a ridin\ shootin’, romancin
rancherette. No one was more sur-
prised than Mitzi at her sudden
passion for life as it’s lived in the
wide open spaces.
“I never was an outdoor girl,”
she said. “I hadn’t even ridden
horseback before. I was pretty
skittish about the whole thing. I
thought I’d probably be sick or
falling on my tailfeathers all
through the picture."
No Hone Trouble
But a week in boots, blue jeans
and blouses on the range around
Aztec, N. M., where “Three Young
Texans" was shot, sold Mitzi.
"I flipped for the west," she
says, “and that’s how it’s been ever
since. I never realized what I’d
With the discovery came all
sorts of surprises. She learned to
handle six shooters, lassos and sad-
dle rifles like a sort of latter day—
and much cuter—Cattle Kate. The
horse trouble she expected failed to
“The riding was nothing at all,"
she said. “It was the sticking on
that was hard. Even so, I never fell
off once. I rode throughout the
picture and I still have saddle-
marks to prove it."
The only misfortune that befell
Mitzi occurred when she had to
fire a rifle on horseback.
“I hit my nose on the butt of
the gun when an ejected shell
struck my cheek," she says. “That
was a double play I could live with-
