To the mnny readers who relished his "Life With Father," the late Clarence Day left a heritage, a companion piece titled, of course, "Ijfe With Mother." This new work, published by Alfred A. Knopf (?2), was compiled from many new pieces written about his father and mother by Mr. Day before his death. In his previous book, Mr. Day painted a delightful, well-rounded picture of his strong-minded, irascible father, who was constantly bewildered because he couldn't make those about him adopt his design for living. Appropriately enough, "Life With •Mother" begins with "Father's courtship. And this he conducts in just the practical, romanceloss way that you would expect him to do it. He finally made up his mind to marry "Mother," proceeded to her home town in Ohio, and peremptorily demanded her hand. They were married a short time later, Mother a bit confused by the suddenness of it all. With the exception of a lively anecdote about how Grandpa (Benjamin Henry Day, founder of the New York Sun) mischievously lent zest to Grandma's seances, the rest of the book deals with "Mother's' The Tfouble With Lubitech Is That Ml Talk of< Anything But Movies HOLLYWOOD.—One trouble about being a Hollywood correspondent is that you have to go around prodding everybody into talking about the mo- Vle,s.

"We certainly would like to hear it, wouldn't we, Kay?" She nodded, trying hard to fall Into Harper's game of playing for time. And despite her fears, she found herself curious about this strange place beneath the wood, and its stranger occupant. "It is quite a story," the man said. "I do not believe I have ever told it before. But now — now there is no real reason why I should not tell it. Furthermore ..." (he smiled again in that peculiar vrcy which froze Kay's heart) "it will do no harm to tell it to you two. "You see," he went on, "many years ago there was a man named DeWitt Montgomery who came here from England. That was before the days of swift transportation—and before people in private cruisers were likely to invade one's privacy. He saw the island during a hunting and fishing trip, and he liked it very much. He brought a group of workmen to build him this underground apartment. "His theory was that during the daytime he would enjoy the natural beauties of nature above ground. At night, he reasoned, it would make no difference whether he slept above or balow ground. And this had another advan'.age —an important one—if strangers happened to land here, they ws^ likely to find no evidence of occupation. "The workmen, of course, dc cided that DeWitt Montgomer was insane. All of them le quickly, as soon as they were fv ished and paid. One story has that none ever left at all . . .' * * * passenger boat lane, and 'only a few hunters and fishermen saw it. "So DeWitt Montgomery lived here. For food he planted a garden, made traps, and did some fishing and hunting. Whenever he needed anything from outside he ordered it by mail, going in a canoe to the nearest settlement eight miles south. Sometimes an order would take months to reach him—but he didn't mind. Gradually the place was just about as he wanted it. Not, of course, as comfortable as now—because that was a great many years ago. He had no electric lights, no air conditioning." The man was silent a. moment, staring at!the two :young people before him. Kay stirred uncomfortably, glancing toward Grant Harper. He was sitting easily in the big leather chair, his eyes fixed pleasantly on their "host." "Please go on," Harper invited. Slowly the man passed a hand over his face, seemed to resume with an effort. "DeWitt Montgomery was a studious man," he went on, waving an arm toward one oi the doors. "I still have his library. Naturally, in a place like this, living by himself, he had a great deal of time for study. He developed many ideas which, no doubt, the outside world thought mad. And—this was his crowning achievement—he developed a new religion." The man paused again, allowing this information to settle in the minds of his listeners. "After all, there is nothing so strange about that. Why. should we always accept the religions of the past? Why wasn't DeWitt Montgomery inspired as well as many another? Don't you agree?" Harper with well simulated seriousness. "What were the tenets of this religion?" *' * * •THE narrator sigh-A "It would take a long while to explain them. It is a religion not to be taken lightly, not to be learned "wiftly, as children learn in Sun- 'ay school. Suffice it to say that UeWitt Montgomery was chosen : to disseminate its good upon this | earth. "He had a well defined plan for Joing this.

"I» any event, Montgomery's eccen&loltiea w«re quickly forgotten. Ttte island was world. And he made an effort to obtain widows of wealth so that they would be in a position, inde- forgotten, too, for it MM ft? the' twudently, to spread the word." .The man rose slowly, went back to the roaring fire at the hearth, and s^ood silently. "And was h'is plan successful?" asked Harper quietly. The other shook his head. "No . . ."he said. "You see, the women all fell ill. Perhaps it was the rigorous winters of the island. Perhaps some taint in the water, to which DeWitt Montgomery had become immune. At any rate, all died. One by one they came In answer to his advertisements in the English and Australian newspapers—and never left the island." Kay paled. Involuntarily she gasped out, "You mean that they all—" "All except one," the man interrupted with strange swiftness. 'One returned to England. Unfortunately she had not grasped the meaning of DeWitt Montgomery's teachings. She brought charges against him, claiming that he had inveigled the women into settlements as to their money, then murdered them." "Do you believe she was right?" asked Harper quietly, reaching for a cigaret from the little table. * * * nPHE man shrugged. "Who are •*• we to say? After so long a time it would be futile to argue that little point, would it not? Nevertheless the law came to the island to take DeWitt Montgomery into custody. There was a terrific battle, for naturally he had no desire to leave the place he loved so well. But at last he was captured and taken aboard ship. "The officers ^lid not find his hidden apartment. They foolishly believed that he had destroyed it —and they were interested primarily in his capture, anyhow. DeWitt Montgomery was taken back to England and put into prison. Perhaps you both were too young at the time to remember the newspaper articles. As are ail great n$gious leaders, Montgomery was misunderstood. People insisted in believing that he had tried to operate a love cult. They called him a murderer and a rake and his trial was quick. Yet he escaped death because so littlo could be proved, and he was committed to life imprisonment. "You see, I happened to know this story—and in more recent years, when this government put the island up for sale, I bought it. Then I made. the improvements which you enjoy, and which you have been so kind to admire." "Might I ask your same?" suggested Harper. "Certainly. I am DeWitt Mont* gpmery!"

He had order- i; ed frankfurters and red cabbage, and it seemed almost inevitable that he would eat a cigar and try to light a » frankfurter. Didn't though, nnd prob>- ,ably wouldn't have known the differ>- ' ience anyway. Lubitsch smokes from 15 to 20 cigars a day and is conditioned to them by heredity. His fath- ' er almost died'of nicotine poisoning. His Next Will Be Comedy V By prodding Mr. Lubitsch I finally •< got a few cinematic statements out of him: He believes that "Angel" is a flood picture even if he did make it. He welcomes his next directorial assignment as a change of pace because ' it is a comedy, "Bluebeard's Eighth " Wife," co-starring Gary Cooper and •" Claudette Colbert. j He has helped write the scripts of every picture on which he ever worked, even back in the days when his foreign films carried Pola Negri and Emil Jannings to stardom. He likes pictures with social significance, but not preachy ones. The public, said Lubitsch, thankfully, "does not now want always to laugh and have only huppy endings." He would like to direct an intimate- revue type of musical, but fears the fans are getting pretty sick of tap- nnd-tune shows. That's about all he had to say. Lubitsch is so modest that he would rather laugh about some of his worst pictures than tell you of his triumphi;. And lie squirms when you mention the directorial quality which Hollywood culls "the Lubitsch touch." Says he doesn't know what it is. He's Generally Right Grover Jones has an idea, though. He wrote in his magazine:: "Lubitsch . . likes to tell big things through lit,le minds. The butler peeking through a palace keyhole turns and tells the cook that the king has just declared war on the rest of the world. Then in true Lubitschian style, he'll probably add: 'And that means lie won't be home for dinner.' • "The Little-Man-With-the-Big-Cigar is the best script writer in the business, barring nobody. When in doubt about the flow of spoken lines, he sits at the piano and improvises. 'When it sounds like this,' lie says, running his fingers over the keys, 'it'll be just what I want.' And he's generally right." If a man fails to pay his debts in some parts of China, his creditors carry away one of his doors. This permits evil spirits to enter the house, according to native belief. -»—»—»—»—-»—*—»—»—» —» —»— WE PAY 5% Jefferson Standard LIFE INSURANCE CO. Pink W.
