Safety Belts in Cars Urged Says They Would Reduce Fatalities in Auto Wrecks HOLLYWOOD— (#•)— Three movie stunt drivers proposed that every automobile be equipped with safety belts to reduce traffic fatalities. "Safety belts would reduce the nation's automobile deaths 50 per cent" haid Jimmy Dundee. Gordon Garveth and Billy Jones agreed. Their specialty is turning over their cars. All use the belts. "Drivers and passengers should strap themselves to the seats," suggestd Dundee. "This certainly would prevent a lot of deaths and injuries. "Our business is supposed to involve a lot of danger. Maybe it does —but we're all pretty cautious guys. We know exactly what we're doing and we protect ourselves. "I've been in this stunting business 21 years, I've never had'a serious injury.

They lived in a fine old house on Peyton Square which enclosed a lovely park. The big Curt residence in Green street was only five blocks away and Diana walked the distance, reveling in the crisp air and thin winter sunshine. On the morning after her insolent outburst, Adela had come to Diana's room wearing a disarming air of meekness. In quite the most polite tones she had ever used to Diana, she begged her pardon humbly for her behavior of the night before. Diana, genuinely surprised and touched, assured the unhappy girl she had quite forgotten the incident. After Adela left the room, spurred by a sudden generous impulse, Diana ran after her to ask her to attend a matinee with her that afternoon. Perhaps, she thought, if she exerted herself a little more, she and Adela might be friends after all. But in the upper hallway, she stopped short, halted by voices coming up clearly from below. In the stillness of mid-morning Stephen's voice said, "Did you apologize to Diana as I told you to?" Adela laughed unpleasantly. "Of course! I told her I was veddy, veddy sorry for my ugly behavior! That I would be a, good girl in the future. I would'have lied twice as much to keep from having my allowance cut!", Diana turned slowly back to iier room. It was, after all, quite useless to try to make Adela her friend. And in the future ehe would know better than to trust Adela under any circumstances! She was thinking of these .things as she approached Evalyn Piorpe'g bouse. Reinemberujg, too, Richard's words, "Stephe has always bsen madly in lov with my wife!" * * • TT was this remark that closed Diana's lips when she wantei to ask Stephen to tell her more o Evalyn. It had seemed like in truding into the privacy of shrine, a sanctuary. If he real! loved Evalyn, she could not blami him, for she was certainly thi most beautiful person she had ever known; but Stephen's lip remained closed the night Diana had mentioned the blind girl tc him. She dwelt upon his words "There is no one whom I care tt make my wife—literally." Easy to understand, if his heart was in the keeping of Evalyn Thorpe. She wondered a great dea about when and how the estate Stephen was to inherit was being settled, Stephen had told her nothing regarding it. Had the ad- ninistrators accepted the fact of lis marriage as genuine and was she, Diana, serving the purpose 'or which she had been brought nto the Curt household? How much longer was she to stay? She hesitated to ask, believing that Stephen might think her unhappy and restless, might terminate the arrangement sooner than otherwise. And she had no wish for lim to do that. She wondered at her strange contentment—at- ributed it to her enjoyment of he unusual luxury with which he was surrounded. "I'm like a •at," she thought wryjy, "happy when I've got a soft pillow to lie on!" At the Thorpes' Diana was ushered into a charming living oom of no especial design or ar- angement. Evalyn rose from a ow, chintz-covered chair by the Ire and came forward with' out- tretched hands. Her face was agerly alight and Diana was truck anew with her beauty. "You're late. I was afraid you'd orgotten," Evalyn said, clasping Diana's hands warmly. "But you must know 1 couldn't orget," Diana assured her eager- y. "I've been looking forward o this moment ever since you sked me." "You're sweet," Evalyn smiled. I knew you would be. Sit down, fere to spend the day quite lone, and I shall do everything n my power to keep you from eing bored!" As the day wore on, Diana felt lat she could happily spend the est of her life in this woman's ompany. Her conversation was ay, charming and interesting; her usy fingers flew over a knitted weater in a deep, sea blue. And heo Evalyn spoke lovingly, ol Richard Thorpe and his many fine qualities Diana felt a little ashamed that she had despised him so. In spite of everything, Richard began to take on a glow of respectability. Surely she had misjudged him. But she had never pictured him as the kind husband, the loving companion Evalyn painted. tweett scenes on "My Favorite Blonde," pointed out that if motorist? used safety belts, they: Couldn't slide from behind the Wheel. Couldn't be thrown into or through a windshield in a collision. Couldn't be thrown to the pavement through an opened door. "Airplane manufacturers put in safety belts," Dundee concluded. "Why hot automobile manufacturers?" Deepest Well At Aulnay-sur-Bois, France, has been sunk what is considered the deepest artesian well in the world.

H. PHILLIPS, 8.A. & P.S.T, CHE shut her thoughts resolutely to rumors she had heard of his "affairs," Office gossip, she told herself, Even the invitation he had given Diana to go to dinner with him had probably been just a kindly gesture which she had been more than ready to misinterpret. Evalyn told her a great deal about Stephen, too, whom she had known since childhood, speaking of him with warm admiration. "There is not a finer mind anywhere than Stephen's," she said. "I hope you appreciate what a treasure you've married. And I'm sure he must love you very much!" Diana felt like a traitor, but Ivalyn attributed her confused reply to the natural reticence of a bride. Diana wondered what Evalyn would think a few short weeks hence when she learned of the divorce that Stephen would arrange. Itjwas late when she rose to go. "I "want you to come here whenever you can," Evalyn said. "I ike you, Diana, and I want you 0 know you are always welcome. Handicapped as I am, I do not get ut much and I shall consider it 1 special privilege to have you "ome!" Diana's eyes blurred. "As if the irivilege weren't all on my side! 'his has been one of the happiest ;ays I have ever known. J thank ou for it." "I'm glad," Evalyn smiled, her oft, sightless brown, eyes shining. All the way home Diana was glow with the warmth of the >lind woman's friendship. What id it matter if Adela were rud« nd unkind, as long as she had Svalyn? Still in this exalted mood, she cached the Curt home. Larkin old her that Stephen had not yet ome in. She ran through some nail lying on a small table in the allway and was about to pass n up to her own room when she card ]pw voices in the drawing oom. More from curiosity than nything else she paused to glance in. Then she stopped short in mazement. For there, closely clasped in ach other's arms, stood Adela Richard Thorpe!
