HOLLYWOOD.-Short takes: They tell it for a fact that a cerain minor actress accvpted the proposal of a screen executive only on the condition that lie set aside, in trust, a generous sum of a future divorce settlement. Sensation of gossip circles has been the report that Director William Wylcr and Greta Garbo are romancing.

She's the only star for whom no double can be hired, at any price. For several days a Warner Brothers' camera crew stood ready to photograph that expected landslide in Los Angeles' Elysian Park. If it had justified predictions, the slide would have played a part in "Gold Is Where You Find it," an epic of an earlyday epoch. Based on the much-publicized but unexciting "gangster invasion" of Hollywood, press agents have made much of police precautions to guard machine guns used in pictures. Fact is that, these guns would blow up and kill anybody who tried to fire actual bullets. The barrels are partly plugged to provide recoil for the ejecting and reloading mechanism. Changed Ills Title After hanking around Hollywood for more than a year—first under contract to Metro, now to Paramount, the Earl of Warwick finally has a screen role. He's Inspector John Barrymore's secretary in "Bulldog Drummond Interferes." Screen name of the titled Englishman is Michael Brooke, but Director James Hogan just calls him "kid." Robert Montgomery's new home lias an eight-car garage. Claire Dodd owns a pale green piano with pink and brown keys. Dolores Del Rio occupies Star Dressing Room No. 1 at 20th-Fox. Eight yodelers are yelling for the assignment as the screen voice of Tarzan. Harriett Hillard, wife of Ozzic Nelson has torn up her RKO contract. Executives at Alice Faye's studio are worried because she's telling friends she'd like to be a mama. A strenuous assignment is awaiting Robert Taylor's return from England. Studio wants to erase the "pretty boy" tigma that's threatening his popularity, so he'll be tossed into dirt and tatters, also prison, for a film about the Boers of Africa. There's a chance that Taylor may be Norma Shearer's leading man in "Marie Antoinette," but Tyrone Power is a more likely choice. Fox would like to trade Power for Clark Gable, whom it needs for "Hudson's Bay Company," to be filmed in Canada.

Grand National's screen dramatization of the famous fiction and radio character created by Liuulie York Erskine, which opens Tuesday at the New Theater with James Nowill, who adds a new touch to the character of "Renfrew" with his splendid singing voice, in the title role. Among the many thrilling scenes in the picture is a daring parachute leap which "Renfrew" makes to come down on a band of counterfeiters he has been traling for months. There are many exciting hand-to- hand buttles between Renfrew and his enemies, with the famous Mounties outwitting the slippery and ruthless oullaws in the end, aided by his wonder clog, Lighlning, who performs stiint.s wilh an intelligence that is all but human. "Renfrew of the Royal Mounted" is a .story of the great Northwest, logical and sound in every detail, which vividly portrays the adventurous life of Canada's famous redcoats, who risk their lives daily on hazardous missions to maintain law and order in the wildest purLs of the country. With beautiful natural backgrounds, an excellent CUM and magnificent photography, the picture i.s one of the best of its kind which has come to the screen in many seasons. James Newill, as "Renfrew," gives a colorful performance as the dashing serge-ant of the Mounties, who seta out to bring to justice the band of counterfeiters that have murdered his best friend and comrade, Segeunt McDonald, who has left bis little son behind in Renfrew's care. Selling out on a trail of danger "Renfrew" meets a pretty girl, who is concerned with the safety of her father, who has been forced against his will to join the outlaws. After many perilous adventures with the girl, "Renfrew" rescues he-r father and breaks up the gang.

Pulitzer Play on Texarkana Stage "You Can't Take It With You," Showirig There January 4 Both Mass Hart and George S. Kaufman achieved the highest pinnacle of playwriting success as individuals before they combined their extraordinary talents in colaborating on "Once In a Lifetime," the first and best of the Hollywood satires. Later they wrote another successful play together called "Merrily We Roll Along." And then came "You Can't Take It With You," their latest, and many say, their greatest success. Prior to their becoming associated together in the playwright game, Mr. Hart had already won renown as the author of the never-to-be-forgotten sketches which helped to make "An Thousands Cheer" the most brilliant revue ever produced on the American stage. He also wrote "Face the Music," a musical comedy with music by Irving Berlin which enjoyed great success in New York. A third piece for which he wrote the libretto was the trail-blazing "Jubilee" in which Mary Boland played the leading role. Mr. Kaufman working with nearly a dozen other collaborators, has had twenty-eight productions on Broadway of which more than twenty have been distinct successes. No oilier American playwright comes within haling distance of this record. In addition to the plays he wrote with Mi. Hart he is co-author of "Dulcy," "To the Ladies"' "Morton Of the Movies," Beggar On Horseback," "The Ro.v.i! Family," "June Moon," "Of Thee I Sing," "The Coconuts," "A n i m i. 1 Crackers," "Strike Up the Band," "The Band Wagon," "Dinner at Eight," "First Lady," and "Stage Door." "Of Thee I Sing," which he wrote in collaboration with Morrie Ryskind, has the distinction of being the only musical play ever to win the PuliUci Prize. At present "You Can't Take it With You," the Messrs. Hart's and Kaufman's 1937 Pulitzer Prize Play is jamming the theaters in New York and Chicago and has been ever since it opened in the first named city on December 14, 1936 and in Chicago on February 8, 1937. And due to the fuel that it looks as if both companies will remain in these two metropolises for at least another year. Sam H.

But the Japanese public remained ignorant of the seriousness of the apparently terminated crisis and of lengths to which the government had gone to satisfy the United States. Officials Well Pleased Nearly all higher officials of the Foreign Office were in Hirota's office When Ambassador Grew presented the note at noon and it was rioted most of the group were smiling. The Foreign Office spokesman said the ambassador called Hirota's particular attention to the last paragraph of the note, expressing hope that measures taken by Japan to prevent further attacks on "American nati6nals, interests or roperly in China" would prove effective. Hirota, said the spokesman, thereupon "expressed the profound gratitude of the Japanese governments for the attitude shown by the government of the United States and said it was a matter for congratulation that the incident 1 had reached an amicable settlement through the friendly spirit ex- isting between Japan and the United Slates." Indemnity Only Issue Lett Japanese expressed belief that the only question remaining was the amount of indemnity to be paid by Japan. Japan's previous notes had promised full amends on this point, and it was believed Tokio would pay without discussion any statement of damages presented by the United States. The Japanese public has not been informed that its government has offered specific guarantees against recurrence of such incident as the attack on the Panay and has assured the United Stales thai responsible officers have been "dealt with according to law." The hotel Shlmbun, comparatively unimportant, was the only Toklo newspaper to publish the United States naval Board of Inquiry's findings on the Panay affair. There has been little editorial comment. A first grade child reads 55 words a minute, a high school student 295 words a minute, a college student 325 words a minute.

All Merchants - nearly everybody who makes a living by selling something - can be divided into two distinct groups: Group One: The merchant whose goods give so little value that he, like the old-time vendor of gold bricks, cannot expect "repeat" orders. He must make all his profit from the first (and only) sale. Then he must seek buyers not yet familiar with his goods or reputation. Group Two:] The merchant whose goods are sold in the hope of winning the purchaser's continued patronage. He can expect only a moderate profit. Thus, one sale per person is not sufficient. Each article must be good enough to make the buyer want to buy again. merchants who advertise in this paper be- ^ long to Grouif Two, They could not stay in business unless they earned "repeat" orders - unless they gave you honest value for every dollar you spend with them. That is why each article they sell you must be so thoroughly satisfactory that you would answer "yes" to this, the most important question a merchant can ask a customer: "Would you buy it again?"
