All were agreed that the public wanted music with its screen diet, but none had' u constructive iden to offer until Guy Bolton appeared with the original screen story of "Delicious," incorporating many unique ideas for music. Fox Films considered it the perfect vehicle for Janet Gaynor and Charles Farrell. ' George Gershwin, perhaps Ameri- ica's most popular living composer, and Ira, his equally famous brother, were immediately commissioned create the words and music,to as a dramatized accompaniment to story. The success of the venture pended upon weaving the songs a'rj music so skillfully into the rbmafi that the story action Would not be ! terrupted, the greatest weakness of I first musicals. Weeks of careful creative plat went by. during which' time Butler, director of such earlier cal hits as "Sunny Side Up" and "J Imagine," conferred daily with a'u' nnd Composers in order to provid perfect scren continuity for thfe ly interesting story and the fascli ing tunes.

"He says he knows he Isn't worthy to touch the pathway where my feet have trod. His professions career—nothing amounts to any thing to him in comparison to our love for one another. He simply won't leave ine, Ermiritrude. I besought him to, but I mean too much to him, he says. He says I'm 'woman arid child In one.' If I'll go with him, he'll go anywhere. Any where. But if I refuse, he'll stay right here by my side, and glvo up his nrofeaslonal career, and take any miserable, nvly work he can find rather than leave me. If I'll go with him—" "Go with him!

"Older people, I guess," said Er- mlntrude, and tried to mask Iconoclasm, flagrant, with Insouciance. "Older people!" Mary-Frances, shaken, flung It from her. "Come on. We got to hurry, mother said. Mother said," continued Ermlntrude, ;;s If by chance, and happening to be on the subject ot mother, anyway, "that younger people didn't.

I was riding In front with daddy and not supposed to be listening. And mother said something, and Mrs. Mattason said they didn't understand about real love, and mother said sho guessed they did as much as the girls of her period had, or eveu Mrs. Mattason's period. And Mrs. Mattason said why, or what did mother mean? And mother said she was becoming more »nd more convinced that people had 'o have been married 10 years, at Wast, and had a baby or two, and naybe even lost one (she was think- ng about my little brother, Danny. ! guesa), before they even began to suspect the meaning of love, let alone understand it or know the first thing about It." "Oh, well," Mary-Frances simply licked that away with a feathery ;esturo and a lifted shoulder and a urned-up nose. "Of course, if you hlnk your mother knows more tbout love than noted poets like Laurence Hope, and Mr. Browning, and Ella Wheeler Wilcox and everybody, there's just no use In talking to you at all." a girl.
