Burhe has masterminded this raid after the rifles; he had had is own strange reasons for being ssitisfied With Belaire's deat h. The re had been no favor. Crotch would give none in return . On the foredack he found Melott with his head pressed between cupped palms. His engineer had taken sever* punishment and was made them put up groaning. 'Whatever had bony, Jean sharp nose and such a fight? Whatever made them do it?' 1 Melott demanded. "Jim, it's not what you think." Melott removed one hand at a time from his rank wet face.

The last time they had all been together was 40 years ago when they appeared in "Th2 Birth of a Nation." One was Lillian Gish, as sweet- faced as when she played Elsie Stoncman in the D. . W. Griffith classic. One of the original stars at MGM, she had returned for the ilrst time in 26 years to play In "The Cobweb." » Another was Mae Marsh, who scored as Flora, the little s:ster in "The BrltK of a Nation." Still a lovely woman, she has . remained active in films. She hadn't been on the MGM lot since 1918. The third member was Donald Crisp, London-born Oscar winner "Hew Green was My Valley" and reputed to be fabulously Wealthy. A minister since 1909. he played U. S. Grant In "Birth." The trio talked about their early days in films Mostly they spoke of "The Birth of a Nation," which had changed their lives as well as ihe' course of the . industry. All Mrs. 0. G. Hirst Hostess To ' ' Musical Coterie Mrs. O. G. Hirst was hostess to the Prescott Musical Coterie at her home on Wednesday afternoon. Artistic arrangements of red roses and carnations were placed at points of interest. A bowl of evergreens interspersed With colored Christmas ornaments graced the mantel and the buffet. The president, Mrs. Dudley Gordon, presided. The club collect was read in unison and the Federation Hymn, with Mrs. W. P. Cummlngs at the piano, was sung. Mrs. J. V. McMahen gave the Federation news. The program from the book "Listening to Music Collectively" went on to stardom, remember that everyone ryes"were points of fire. "Why did you say that?" . "We're carrying guns for the army. For the Federals. Jim.' Melott's lips were white and his eyes were shadowy blanks, expressing absolutely nothing. He laid heavily, 'I had an idea of that. Why do we have to do it? What's the matter with sending them overland? Murphy could make up a train." "No Jim! Murphy can't spare men enough to guard that klncj of shipment. The Apaches would go pitched in on the picture," said Miss Marsh. "I counted Mr. Griffith's right-hand man Bobby Herron in the picture five . times as a Southerner, a' Northerner, a renegade and so forth. I was even in a cheering crowd at the end. after I had died in the picture. It was like that: We were stars one day and extras the next." "Tut tut!" spid Crisp. "We were never extras. We were stars." "Not on your life," countered Miss Gish "Those of us from the stage didn't, want star billing. It was a disgrace t ohave it known for those guns!" "What about the Amador? Did Jamison turn them down?" "Murphy didn't give him a chance. He's afraid of Maddix, pt Calhoon." Crotch paused, then added, "He knows Navigation's put to break us." •'' . • :. Melott stared across the dry btrctc'h of arrow-weed that swept beyond range of eyesight. ; ,For a long time h e had known something like this was going to happen. The Territory was too important not • to be fought over and Heath, must come went working in the 'flick- we; ers/" They had one thing in common: Their loyalty to Griffith. "Recently Charles Laughtc-n directed his first picture and he did an amazing thitig,". said Miss Gish proudly.

Alongside it Dreyfus laid his rifle. Others were keeping beside him; the deck, was beginning to fill with dark shapes of men in various positions of rest.

Memo on Taxes Sounds Like Politican Talking for Hie Record A news item this week reports Jthat one of America's two top na- ~H'al labor unions, the C. I. O. j(Congress of Industrial Orgar'.i- fations), has: 1. Denounced the "growing menace" of sales taxes. 2. Caned on its members to fight td abolish all sales taxes. 3. Urged local government to meet its financial needs from property and income taxes. This pontifical message is strictly • for the birds. The C. I. O. top brass ; are in this instance doing precisely : v^iat a senator or congressman d >os when he reels off some bombastic piece of nonsense on Capitol Hill making big talk for the record >yhen in reality he never hit a lick. So it is with this high-sounding announcement from the national leadership of the C. I. O. Arkansas had a showdown fight last month on the proposition of reforming and equalizing our property assessment system—but if anyone connected with the C. I. O. ever said or wrote aiWthing favorable to Proposed Amendment 43 I missed it completely. rf Furthermore, people who are as ^politically smart as the C. I. O. national leaders claim to be knew that despitc, u any public mention of the matter by the campaigners last summer something had. to be done to brace up the property tax structure if we were to avoid a fight to increase the state sales tax. Even sa. the C. I. O. laid off Amendment 4f in poisonous silence. So you have rny permission to dismiss this high-sounding pronouncement about local gogernment and taxes as hog -wash. The C. I. O. isn't any more interested in seeing justice done about taxes than the corporations are— possibly because high-paid top-level union chiefs have more in common with the corporations,property-wise, than'they have, with the working people who are the special target tJi'sales taxes on food and clothing.'
