Be More Specific Briefly, I believe, that -little children, middling-sized Children and big children all need more'specific telling than they get. "Go out and chop some wood, John," used to mean to go out and chop some wood. Today "the wood-box is empty, dear. Are you very busy?" doesn't mean to go out and getjf^eljffor dinner. It means that if Johnny $s in the mood after he has fished and oiled his bicycle and hung around the movie for a while, and still hasn't forgotten altogether, he may come in after three hours and perhaps get the wood if he can't think up more excuses. It is better to say to Jimmy, "Change your clothes after school every day," and see that he does it; to Johnny, "Go and get me some wood at once." Children have to learn to decide, of course, and there are many times when we can't be too rudely arbitrary. But we cannot leave too much to whim or to judgment. Besides, it is often a relief to children to have directions in black and white instead of gray. GKHFVFC Hew York's speakeasy era, it's and playboys and chiselers and spenders.

Thomas I *BY DAN THOMAS HOLLYWOOD-Lifte a stiltan in his harem, Director Norman Taurog sat on a stool-and gazed at. 37. beautiful girls as they went through the various intricacies of a dance routine. But he wasn't beaming as a man should. When a bevy of such Shaply girls do their utmost just to plehse him. In fact,.he.had rather a lorig face—if his round features ever could be considered long. At least there wasn't A trace bf a smile oh his countenance. "Ycu-can take them away any time you wont to,.." sighed the director. "I used to appreciate a beautlfulface and figure, but now—it just means grief." Taurog was filming a dance huni- ber for Eddie Cantor's hew picture, "Shoot the Chutes." Ond it'was plain that he wasn't enjoying it. With cbfets amounting to $10,000 a day, he'Had expected to shoot this number in a ringle day. And here he wfis oh' his third day. it's Nonral PrdceUur'e It wasn't his fault, the girls' fault or the fault of the young dance director. Robert Alton, who used to be a shoe clerk in Beririlngtbri, Vt,, and who made A great name for himself in two short years on Broadway. It was just one of those things that happen during the filming of spectacular dance routines. They always take three times as lorig as anticipated. "All right, let's try it again." Tailrog ordered, mopping his brow. The girls —12 ornamental showgirls and 24 vivacious dancers—took their places on a white spiral runway. - At a signal from the chief electrician, 84 huge arcs poured forth a blaze cf light. Head Cameraman Greg Tol- arid took his place behind the principal camera while his assistants man- ed two others on high parallels at pppsite sides of the set. "Start your playback." shouted the ire'ctcr. As the notes of the previous- y recorded music came through a arge amplifier. 'laurog, crouched be- i'de Tolancl. while Alton stationed nimself as close to the girls as pos- ible. Alton created and rehear seel the- number and it was his job to see that he girls performed their routine cor- ectly. Taiirog's job was to get it "ori iim in as spectacular a manner as lossible. s Gooti Shot at tast At a signal from Alton the feminine s'eaUties went into action, the slibw- ;irls swaying their hips, in rhythm with the music while the dancers went into a diffciult doubletime rou- ihe, led by Rita Rio, slim red-headed lancer from Broadway. Starting at he top cf the runway, she danced ler .way through the maze of girls to he bottom. "Cut," shouted Taurog. "That's the one. Now we'll shoot the part where Mdie Cantor comes in." Again the girls lined up, Taurog making sure that Jinx Falkenber'g, oretty 16-year-old who's a dead ringer 'or Frances Dee, was in the front line. She'? the girl who won the free style swimming championship of Chili when she was 13 and who was playing in the semi-finals of the Southern California Tennis Championships when Camuel Goldwyn saw her arid signed her to a long-term contract on the spot. Only one camera had to be used for this shot, which consisted principally of some by-play between Cantor arid Rita Rio. As the music came through the amplifier, Rita started_ to dance with a slow, swimming motion. She's the dancingest girl you ever saw— can't keep still a minute if she hears any music. Then Cantor sauntered into the scene, singing. When he neared Rita, she grabbed him, threw his hat into the air, mussed up his hair and tried to kiss him. Strong Man Eddie That made Eddie mad (the script said he had to get mad), so he grabbed her and threw her 'way up into the air out of the scene. Of course he didn't actually throw her that far Rita isn't very heavy, but she's too heavy for Eddie to toss around in that manned. In reality, she was pulled out o: the scene by two fine piano wire's fastened to the back of her costume. Three "takes" of that satisfied Taurog and he called lunch. What scrambel that caused, everyone trying to be first off the set. That is everyone but the showgirls. Thei lunch was served to them right on $< set. Since they were attired in $601 costumes of spun silver cloth, the , studio decided it would be more eco- I nomical to serve lunches to them than I to take a chance ruining their gowns. After eating, standing up-^the costumes were too tight to permit them to sit down—the girls spent the rest of their lunch hour relaxing in a long row of "vertical seats." These seats consist of a backboard tipped slightly and equopped with arm rests and tiny ! padded seats.

"Those brakes need adjusting, :Hed;" he called out to a long, sorrel-topped mechanic who came Strolling over to him. Red nodded, chewing gum slowly. . "I'll tell MacFarlane," he said. He looked dourly at the automobile. ".Trouble Is, Mac isn't here now. Him and the boss went off somewhere this afternoon right after lunch and I don't know when they'll be back." MacFarlane was superintendent of the repair shop of the State Auto Sales agfincy, and all orders for repairs to demonstrator cars were supposed to be routed through him. Bobby frowned. "Listen, I got a prospect wants a demonstration this evening." he siild. "Can't I get a special Job, if Mac doesn't get back in time?" Red chewed his gum solemnly. He, was notorious for a steady and undeviatlng pessimism. "I suppose," he said. "I'll prob- bably. get in bad for it." "I'll take the blame," said Bobby. "You s,ay Mac went off with the boss? Where'd they go?" "Search me. Very mysterious. Mac was getting busy with that job over there—" he jerked his thumb at a sedan whose hood was crumped up like an accordion— "when Hopkins came out and called .They talked for a minute and then they went away together." "Oh. Well, If you can get this brake flxe'd before evening I'll appreciate it." Bobby walked back to the sales room, wondering where the suop foreman and 'the head of the agency Could have gone. He remembered Larry Glenn's admonition to keep his «>ye 'on everything that seemed Jn the least degree out of the ordinary, in the hope that he could unearth some sort of clew to the whereabouts of the plant where the armored cars. were made; could this afternoon's doings have any connection with that? t * * '""v w ...," •:' IBM evening came Bobby made an hasty supper in a nearby restaurant, and then returned to toe agency. He went back to the shop and found bis demonstrator waiting {or him. The red-beaded mechanic was gone, but be had left 9 tag on the steering wheel bearing the words, "The brake drum is down. I fixed it OK for now but she needs a new one. Tell Mac." Bobby threw the tag away and was about to get Into the carltraced a road that ducked under when he saw Mark Hopkins' neat i railroad bridge, skirted the rear the blue roadster parked against the opposite wall: Julius, the colored man who took care of the shop nights, was coming up with a bucket in one hand and a length of hose In the other. He grinned when he saw Bobby. "Boss sure got her dirty today," he said. "Told me to wash 'em up good right off." The roadster was dirty, undeniably. It had gleaming wire wheels, and an abundance of bright chromium-steel on hood and bumpers: and these werd plastered with a peculiar reddish dust that completely obscured their ordinary brilliance. "Now where you suppose they got that kind of mud?" mused the Negro, bending to look at it. "Ain't no roads around this part of the country got red mud in 'em. I seen plenty down south, but ain't none around hero. Nowhere." "Looks like iron ore," said Bobby. Julius connected his hose to a wall fitting and motioned Bqbby to stand back lest he be splashed. "Uh-huh," he said, twisting the connection tight. "She do look like iron ore. I don't know where he could o£ got that on him, 'less it was down back of the Empire Steel plant." "Was he down there?" asked Bobby. The Negro looked up. "7 don't know where he was," he said; "When he come in, I hear him cussing to MacFarlane about the Central street bridge being closed. That's all I know." AH of this seemed to add up to nothing at all. Bobby stood for a moment longer, watching Julius; then he got in the demon strator and drove out to give his "prospect" a spin. * * [ T was about an hour later that he brought the car back to the shop and parked it for the night As he let himself out and starlet walking down the street to get his street car, he began to ponder anew on the trip that Mark Mop kins and MacFarlane had taken Was it worth thinking twice about? Certainly it was Hopkins privileige to take his shop foreman off bn a business trip in the middle of the afternoon, if he cho^e to, without arousing anybody's suspicions. What it be had driven through some peculiar-looking red dust? Djd that necessarily mean anything? And then he remembered Larry Glenn's words. Somewhere around Dover there was a factory where armored, bullet-proof cars were surreptitiously made for gang- Hters. Larry believed Hopkins himself was selling these cars. Bobby rode home wondering about these things, and when he got to his room he bunted in his desk for a road map of Dover. Spreading it out ou a table, be bent over it. The Empire f the steel plant's 'enormous •eservation, running between the actory and a railroad, yard, and .hen came out on d lobg slant, •unhlhg bit to jolfr—yes, Central stre'et—at ah angle. Hmrh, said Bdbby, maybe it matches u:p after.all. Th'e Central street bridge fa closed for repairs. So If he wanted to go but here, ic'd have to detour, and this back oad, Pulnskl road, It is—-would .ake him. But why go so far out? There's plenty of other cross streets that'd feed him Into Central street a lot sooner, ana riibre directly, too. Why go along Pu- Inski? • • * AT last the solution came to •"• him. Hopkins' destination must have been on Pulaskl street Itself, beyond the steel plant. -Ordinarily he would have gone out entral and then turned down Pulnski; with the bridge closed, lie had had to take another way, which caused him to go down Pulaski from the other end— which was why he had had to pass the steel plant at n point where, according to Julius, the ore dumps covered the road with this reddish dust. .His. goal, then, must have been on Pulaski, somewhere between the steel mill and Central street. There was nothing more Bobby could do now; but the next -morn- Ing, getting away from the salesroom as soon as he could, Bobby went to a drive-it-yourself agency, hired a car, and set out to see what he could see. lie reached Pulaski road, an ill- favored, poorly-paved street, and followed it. Before long the high red towers of the Empire Steel plant loomed up on his right. His heart gave a bound of excitement as he saw that on the opposite side of the street there was a great ore dump, where the railroad cars were emptied; and overhead, crossing the road like a spindly steel bridge, there ran a series of conveyors by which ore was moved from the dump to the furnaces. And the road beneath was heavy with reddish dust! He drove along with mounting excitement, past the steel mill anu the railroad yards, between a long double line of unpainted wooden houses, mean and disreputable in appearance. The region was a slum, and a miserable one: what had brought the elegant Mark Hopkins down here? Pulaski road went up a low rise Steel plant was Dover's one consumer o£ iron ore. It was situated on the southeast- era fringe of the city, in an almost inaccessible tangle of railroad tracks, warehouses and small shops. To reach it—let's see—you took Turney road, and Turaey was a dead-end street, ending right at the steel mill. Back of the plant, then? Here it was. Bobby/B pencil poiot and swung to bnally. Vacant the lots right dlag- and shacks made up the landscape; o( factories, or business houses of any kind, there was no sigh. Ahead, within plain sight now, was Central street, where Pulaski road ended. Was this a wild goose chase, then, after all? Disconsolately-, Bobby slowed down the car, turned around, att'd started back. And then he saw something he bad not noticed before: a cindered c-riveway that went off to the left, between two grassless vacant lots, and disappeared around a bend in a place Where the rolling, tenantless. desolate land formed a shallow valley, "That must be It," mused Bobby. "There's no other possibility. I'll just flmj out." He spun the wheel and started off along the lonely 'driveway. , (T.p Se Say*, what do,you think we tti^covieted?
