Edmund Goulding offered the serviced of his own man, whom he wouldn't be needing for a couple of weeks, and Parker accepted gratefully. The fellow checked In at Parker's house and was doing fine when Colliding dropped in a few hours later and cracked the joke ,by identifying the valet as Michael BrocJke^-the Earl of Warwick. ' Sam Briskin,. RKO . executive, was impressed by the fine appearance of a young man working at a filling station. One day he questioned him, and asked .whether he thought he could act. The youngster said, "Well, 1 see a lot'of movies, and if you call that Betting Ikhow darned well I can act!" ; So! Briskin hired him, and it seems that he Was right. His name is Robert Thatcher. , Few girls ever have lost movie rples by being too pretty, but that's what happened to Lois De Fee. , She's the former bouncer of a New •York night spot who was brought out here by Warner Brothers for the important part of a feminine blacksmith in "Swing Your Lady." ' She's truly colossal—stands 6 feet 3 inches and weighs 185 pounds. But the studio decided she was much, too attractive and youthfuj for the;role. Other film factories are considering her now, and she may be signed as a comedienne. .

She sat up in bed sleepily, it had been a fitful night. The little clock on the dressing table pointed to 8:30. Hurriedly, she jumped out of bed. Eight-thirty! She'd overslept a whole hour. They'd both be very late for work. She turned around to awaken Amy. Then, in a flash, the whole ghastly nightmare pame back to her. It wasn't a dream, then. Amy was gone. Again the bell rang. Thoroughly iawake now, Cilly recognized It. The doorbell. She slipped on her kimono—the same Japanese kimono she had worn last night to interview Sergeant Dolan and the doctor—and went to the door. It jwas Sergeant Dolan now, perhaps. But it was not Sergeant Dolan at the door. It was a woman, a nervous, indefinite little woman Whom Cilly did not recognize. "Good morning," the little woman said in a frightened, shy manner. "I'm sorry to get you up like this—-but I had to see you right away. I'm Mrs, Corbett, from across the way," * * • ipJLLY opened the door wider. •^ "Will you come in, Mrs. Corbett?" she invited. "Thank you. You're Miss Kerr?" Cilly paled. 4 'No, I'm sorry, but Miss Kerr Js not here. . . ," Mrs. Corfeett put b,er hand up Jo her mouth apologetically, as if admonishing herself not to make Another blunder. "Oh, I'm very sorry, She must be the other one, ... I didn't know. I just looked at the names fcere above the bell. Hers was the top one. You're Miss Pierce, *hen?" Cilly nodded, leading the way into the living room. She noticed that the bridge table was still set pp as jt had been the night before: the ashes had not been removed. She must tidy the house •immediately, Amy's Aunt Harriet Would be here. Slve drew a chair for Mrs. Corbett. "It's about her—about the other young lady-T-I wanted to talk to you," Mrs. Corbett said, seating berself on the edge of the chair. ''It's about wha$ bapfien$4 fept night." Illustration by Ed Guilder "She didn't fall, Miss Pierce," she whispered. "She was thrown off that roof. A man picked her up and bodily threw her off." "I tell you, Miss Pierce, I'm so qpset I don't know what to do. And my mother's in an awful state. .You see, I live over there, in the St. Ann apartment, on the filth floor. My mother lives with me, and this week Mr. Corbett is out of town. We were both alone last night. We went to bed early —about 10:30, I guess. Mother wasn't feeling so well." Cilly listened attentively. "She has asthma," Mrs. Corbett continued. "Terrible attacks of it. Well, last night I guess I must have fallen asleep right away, but mother felt badly. She couldn't get her breath^-you know how it is with asthma. So she got up and sat at the window to get more air . she. was sitting there when it happened," * » * «VOU mean—she saw her fall?" Mrs. Corbett shook her head. She leaned forward and lowered her voice dramatically. "She didn't fall, Miss Pierce," she whispered. "She was thrown off that roof. A man picked her up bodily and threw her off." "Oh, jny God!" "1 know, it's terrible. I've asked my mother a dozen times this if she's sure, Put she iu- sists on it. There was a ship down the bay swinging its searchlight back and forth. And mother says just as that light passed the roof, she saw it plainly. Then I woke up-r-the noise of the fall, I guess. And everybody shouting out of their windows. But mother had fqinted. I thought she was having another attack, and I was too busy with her to pay much attention to what was going on, over here." "Murdered! Amy murdered!" Cilly gasped. But of course that was it. Amy would never have taken her own life. She load everything for which to live. "Amy murdered!" Cilly repeated the words dully. Again she had that feeling of unreality, of utter disbelief.' It was all a terrible mistake. Nobody could have murdered Amy — gentle, kindhearted Amy. It was all so impossible. Mrs. Corbett fidgeted nervously on the edge of her chair. "I'm sure I don't know what to do about it," she said. "Seems as if I had to tell you, Miss Pierce, li's such a terrible crime . . . and right here on St. Ann's avenue. We've lived here for seven years, and it's always been the nicest/* quietest neighborhood. But now! ... I dbnt'tyiuit.'td'stay here another night. I tell you—" "Have you told the police?" Cilly interrupted. : Mrs. Corbett's pale eyes widened in horror. "Oh, no! • I couldn't do that! Why, I've never had any, dealings with the police—and I'm sure Mr. Corbett wouldn't want me to get mixed up in a—a murder." "You'll have to tell the police just what your mother saw," Cilly said emphatically. "They believe it to be suicide. ..." "But I rea'lly don't want to go to the police—not until I get in touch with my husband, anyway." "I'm afraid you'll have to, Mrs. Corbett," Cilly insisted. "Because, you see, I will have to tell them of your visit this morning, and naturally they will want to question you. It would be much better, I think, if you went to them yourself." * * * <4T HATE to be mixed up with" A the police," Mrs. Corbett whined. "It might have been some gangster. ..." "You need only tell the police what you have told me. You can phone from here, if you wish. Ask for Sergeant Dolan. He is handling the case." "Sergeant Dolan. I guess I'll wait until I get home, Miss Pierce. Perhaps I can just ask him to stop in. and see me, I'd much rather tell him about it at home. . , . I've never been to a police station." "Of course." Cilly saw Mrs. Oorbett to the dpor; unconsciously she bolted it after her. Amy murdered! It was incredible. "I'll have to tell people," Cilly thought mechanically. "I'll have to tell Jim^-and Harry Hutchins —and Mr. Ames." It was -4Q minutes past 9, according to the b4"jo clock on the wall. Mr. Ames was probably looking for Amy this very minute. First, however, Cilly dialed the number of Jim's hotel. Perhaps she could catch him before lie left for the office. "Mr. Kerrigan, please." She waited while the operator rang Jim's room. 'Sorry, Mr. Kerrigan does not answer. Any message?" "Never mind, thank you." Jim had left for the office, then. Perhaps she'd better wait a few minutes before calling him there. He seldom got in before 9:30. She wanted, she suddenly realized, more than anything else to hear Jim's reassuring voice, to have him tell her that the world had not gone suddenly mad, that Amy was alive and well, and it had all been a weird, unbelievable nightmare. Fortunately for her, perhaps, she could not foresee the infinitely more terrifying surprises Which she would face before she. heard Jim's voice again.

The dictators, he added, "laugh at all constitutions" aitd predict tha 1 their own methods will be copiec throughout the world, .
