She was too-" "Too sensible, you mean? I am sorry to disillusion you; but Mrs. Talbert has been one of my best clients for years." "And I let you make me promise not to warn the police!" Christine swung on the girl. "Please!" the girl spoke swiftly. •X brought you here because there are things you must know that only my uncle can tell you. . . . And this is the only place in Surf City where he is safe from the police." Then a door opened and another person came quickly from an adjoining room. Christine cried on a caught breath, "Jaspar!" But this wasn't the caricature of Jaspar she had seen last night. This was the same immaculate, decorous Jaspar she remembered moving smoothly about his duties at Cousin Emma's. "Miss Christine," he began respectfully, "I had almost given up hope of speaking with you unti' you called my niece as I told her to ask you the other night to do.' He turned anxiously to the girl "You'd better hurry home, Lucille," he told her in an undertone The girl nodded, and slipped obediently out of the room. * * * a moment Christine stood speechless, her thoughts scattering like leaves in a wind. Apparently the butler was here under Chandra's protection — a trusted confederate. Yet if the clairvoyant had learned about those bonds from Jaspar, why had he tried to warn her? ... Or supposing he had really wanted to •warn her, why hadn't he given her the information plainly, in words of one syllable, without all that theatrical clap-trap? Unless, perhaps, he had some reason for distrusting the butler, and wanted to make sure before he committed himself. . . . Unless he had some reason for suspecting that Jaspar was involved in Cousin Emma's death. But when she had talked with Chandra, Cousin Emma was still %live—at least, her death wa« not public knowledge. Jfo. it's too thin, Christine •xought. These two are working together. "I hope, Miss Christine," Jaspar on, "that you haven't just —left those papers lying around— or that you're not carrying them ibout with you?" Christine said steadily, "I turned the bonds over to Inspector Parsons the first tiling this morning, and told him where I found them. . And, Jaspar, it seems to me that you are the one who—just eft them around. How did you enow where my room was, and low did you get in?" "That was the simplest part of t. Miss Christine. You see, not be- ng able to meet you myself at the rain, I asked Mr. Chandra, who ins been in Mrs. Talbert's confidence for years, to make certain where you went. And at the hotel, all I had to do was to find one of the maids who used to work under me at your cousin's home. . Mrs. Talbert had made me promise, Miss Christine, that if— anything happened to her before she saw you, I would make certain that you had the securities." "But my cousin was killed last night. You put those papers there the afternoon before. Nothing had happened to her then." her way carefully, "Then why didn't you leave a note with the bonds—some explanation?" Before the butler could answer, a sharp knock sounded on the outer door. Jaspar and the medium exchanged startled glances. Then with a reassuring gesture Chandra went out into the halt. * * * CHRISTINE had never expected ^-* to be gladdened by the sight HARRISON IN HOLLYWOOD Montage Expert Puts Art in Films By Producing Satire in Hollywood By PAUL HARRISON NEA Service Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD.—Kleveu years ago a shy but zealous young painter named Slavko Vorkapich came here with a movie camera. He had no idea what he wanted to do, except that he was excited by the artistic pos_ sibihties of pictures that moved. And he could afford to experiment, having IU Ut! KIUUUUI1V.U uv nit; DI&IIV , . of Inspector Parsons: but when he |'«*). soW a P» lIlll "S to " vei> 4'T BEG your pardon, Miss Chris"^ tine — something had happened. She had disappeared. 1 hoped," Jaspar was going on anxiously, "that I might be able to get help to Mrs. Talbert before —before it was too late; and I had to get the papers to you the best way I could." "I should think the bank was the place for them." "Yes, Miss Christine," Jaspar agreed uncomfortably. "But—of course vou couldn't know this—for some time Mrs. Talbert had been growing more and more—well, strange, about things like that. She insisted that you must have them in your own hands." But if you knew she was in danger, why didn't you go to the police?' came briskly into the room, she could have fallen on his neck. Behind him wore Bill Ynrdlcy— his eyes seeking her out with a kind of angry relief—Mr. Wilmet, and, sobbing miserably into her handkerchief, the girl Lucille. . . . The inspector looked Jaspar over with a satisfied smile of recognition and favored Christina with a glance that was far from friendly. Then he turned to a uniformed man. "Take this girl home," he directed, indicating the butler's weeping niece; "and'see that she ' stays there till further notice." I He swung upon Christine. I "Some of these days. Miss Thor- j enson," he said coldly, "you'll.j learn that, when murder's in- < volved, it pays to tell the whole | truth." | Wait a minute, Inspect-" i Bill's voice crackled. "I told you | that Miss Thorcnson hadn't any j idea where she was coining to-! night, or whom she was going to ] find. . . . And a sweet chase you've led me!" he swung on Christine. "If Wilmet, here, hadn't happened to see you following that girl, I don't know how we'd have run you down. It was pure luck—his recognizing her when she came back along tho Boardwalk." Inspector Parsons had turned to Chandra. "I was on my way here when Yardlcy burst in about Miss Thor. enson's disappearance," he said num. i One of the first people he met in j Hollywood WHS the then-prominent j director Rex Ingram. To him, in a | heavy Jugo-Slavic accent, Vorkapich I babbled about the cinema as an art- 1 form'. "Like hell it is!" responded i Ingram. "The movies arc a business, | and don't you forget it!" ! The newcomer didn't forget it, but i he Wii-s not to be so easily conipro- | mused. With the help of Robert Florey, i then an assistant and now a director, ! he made a .short picture which he i knew perfectly well never could be i released commercially. It was a bitter I satire on Hollywood, full of paper- and their father, from croquet to Because that was another thing 'So you do cut in on this after __—_.. nors against you Make it anythin; parches!.

Don't tie them together, 1 don't mean that, but do try to step up Bill's regard for Tom. And tell Tom. for goodness sake, not to run to you and tell when things go wrong. It may not work, but it may. If not. perhaps Billy i.s just being mean from pure cusscdne.-::;. He needs, pos- kil/iy as the soldiers say, "his ears pinned back." In that ca;.e, I should lay dawn the law and stop his nonsense. Yours sincerely. Olive Roberts Barton jll characters and impressionistic flashes of Flickertowu life. The reel was .shown at a parly at Chin-lie Chaplin's house one night. Next morning Vorknpirh had a call from Paramount. No, they didn't want his picture, but they did want lo hire his skill at blending scenes to represent thought processes and sequences of events. So VorUapich became, and still is, Hollywood's foremost montage expert. Short Montage Overs Many Years The movies, as a business, have paid him handsomely. As an art form, they pretty well have justified his early enthusiasm. When a montage, lasting only a minute or two on the screen, can span years of time, show the courses of lives and even nations, and establish new modes —and can do these things almost without audiences being conscious of them- then it must qualify as art. "Montage.' in French, 'means "putting together" or "mounting" and is properly applied to the cutting and assembling of any picture, the expert explained. It was first used to describe some of the patchwork paint. ings of early surrealists who'd put together a lot of individually unrelated objects to convey (they thought) a single idea. Then the montage was introduced in movies for tho very practical purpose of saving film. Now. with plenty of money in Hollywood, the method is still invaluable in showing dreams and thoughts, or for cutting back into the past, and for racing ahead through the seal's. Some of them are expensive. Vorkapich has spent a.s much as S:!."i.OtlO on montages lasting only a couple of minutes. , "Who Is .Montage'.'" Ask Kffim-nr.v Mrn He often has been made furious by green efficency experts who go storming around the .studios asking, "Who is this guy Montage, and why in the blankcty-blank do we have to pay him so much dough?" "Actually, the montage is very economical," he said. "For instance, I do many wars und famines and such big things which must be Indicated in the picture somehow and yet are really only incidenlnl to the stories. Like the battle in 'The Firefly,' with Wellington's «rmy coming over the hill. "Well, instead of really staging a big battle, with a thousand extras, 1 can take 30 or 40 men, H few yards of trench and one cannon, and turn out a satisfactory spectacle. Frwir double exposures and fast cutting, you get the Impression of tremendous excitement nnd action. We take many brief shots, from many angles, of the cannon being fired, I scatter those all over the screen anil you have an idea there arc dozens of guns going off." The average montnge In.'its a minute and a half on the screen, Vorkapich said. The longest one he ever made was for "Maytime"—nearly four minutes. But in that time he had to cover the highlights in tho possible lives of three pel-softs: Nelson Eddy was traveling, winning acclnim, bccrfming a famous opera singer. Jconcttc Mac- Donnld. meanwhile, wns being trained, driven, dominated by Svengali Harry- more as a metronome clacked inexorably.

Perhaps you wouldn't remember, but almost 12 years ago, her only nephew was kidnaped in much the same way." "And Mrs. Talbert wouldn't ha%'e the police called then, either," Jaspar finished. "Why should she expect to be abducted?" "Well, Miss Christine, lately she's had—threatening letters— just as the family did before Mr. Earl was taken." And who, Christine thought, would be in a better position than you to see that those letters were safely delivered? For a moment she hesitated for words, Then she went on, feeling all?" I thought you'd work around ;o that idea, Inspector." \ The clairvoyant's voice was cool; but his tawny eyes v.%ra watchful. ; "When I talked to you thh ; morning," the detective went on, : 'that dagger looked like a delib- ; erately planted clew—and a pretty > stupid one.

"And 1 didn't know," he added very slowly, "that on the night Mrs Talbert disappeared, she was last seen going into your Broadway studio."

Yes, it is'an unfortunate thing when an older brother bullies the little one. But it is just as bad when a younger brother "rags" his senior, and I have seen that happen, too. There are many reasons why children forget the old adage of brother ly love, and thumb their noses at blood being thicker than water. Billy has always been jealous of Tommp, is that right? From the day Tommy was born. Three years between them. It just might be that is when the whole trouble started, and why. A new baby suddenly sprung on an only child, the idol of all the kin, is often a. shock, if he has no preparation for it. Biily is the stronger, smarter and better-looking boy, you say, and yet he cannot bear to see Tommy have a single favor. Are you quit« sure, my dear, that just because Tommy i.s the weaker and the slower, you have not automatically become his special ally and protector? Or that you have no been overly sharp with Billy about his conduct toward Tom? ' If it has become a war of two against one, it won't cure Billy. It certainly won't help him to love his brother. : Separating them and allowing Billy to live with a relative and go to another school this year, is really no soution. It would be a relief for a while, but Billy wou always picture Tommy as being aone with you and the breach might grow wider.
