Y., in the late CD's, kept at it 50 years. His son, Bellamy, recounts- his father's story in a book full of the flavor of that time, "Country Lawyer" (Whittlesey House: $2:75). U will probably start a deluge of attorney reminiscences, but few should be better. Exerpted briefly here is Die stiry of a suit that followed a community prayer for rain. Second: the human material the country has to work with is made up of as fine a set of folks as any nation could possibly ask for. The sheer physical richness of the country fairly hammers on your eyes as you travel. Your train flashes by great mining areas whose only fault is that, they produce loo richly. Your car winds through fertile lands whose one flaw is thitl they are loo fertile. Your plane goes over an industrial empire which would be without a flaw if only it wasn't equipped to make more things than the country can bundle right now. Hlltl Of Weiiltll After you have looked at such things day after day. you begin to understand as you never understood before how much our alcnlion and our effort ought lo be turned inward, not across the seas—and what a tremendous, lasting boom will get under way once we get the knack of making all of this richness work for us and not against us. Then there are the people. . . . It isn't just a matter of their be- ing friendly. There's a competence to them, an industry, an inborn desire to get em with one another, which sticks out even in a country which has to worry about strikes and relief labor and economic loyalists. l.'ffl Million "Swell Guys" Those young marines on the train bound for the Camp Perry, O., rifle matches . . . the stewardess on the airliner . . .

Over in Europe the thunder-heads are blotting out the sunset; maybe it's going to be night over there for a long while, a night, filled with terrible things, the flames of stricken cities nad the cries of anguished children.

Milt Davis, N. P. O'Neal in Auto Crash Sunday An auto collision between Milt Davis, employe of J. R. Williams, and N. P. O'Neal, Hope Brick Works proprietor, occurred Sunday afternoon on South Walnut street near The Star office. Mr. Davi.s was leaving the curb in his machine and Mr. O'Neal's car was traveling in the same direction when they struck. Both cars were moving slowly: both were damaged; but no one was injured. The case derived primarily from the dry weather of the summer before. For weeks on end not n drop of rain hud fallen . . . The situation was becoming serious When young Mr. Dun- cnn McLeod, the new minister, took matters in hand and irganixed a huge movement for a collective prayer for rain. Mr. McLeod's idea was not merely to get the godly people of the town to pray; he wanted every person in the town, good and bad, to get down on their knees at. 12 o'rlork on a certain Saturday in August and join in one great big town-wide supplication for rain. So complete was his organization that even the saloons, then suspected of being the personal hadi- work of the devil, joined in the pause. It was everywhere felt that the effort had been a great success. By one o'clock there were small clouds in the sky; by twi a gusty wind had begun to blow; by four a thunderstrom of cyclonic proportions swept the township, drenching the parched country- the gents whose Hollywood supremacy is largely vocal. He can cuss as volubly as any of them. Having handled some labor cases in the east, during three years as an assistant attorney general in the criminal division of the Department of Justice, he is pretty well fed up with union quarrels. Before being sent to Washington, he was an assistant U, S. attorney in Los Angeles, where he successfully prosecuted the William F. Gettie kidnapers (who are serving life lei'ms), the mail fraud case which involved Appellate Judge Gavin W. Craig, and Tony Cornero, the ex- bootleg baron who recently has been in the news as the admiral of the gambling-ship fleet. Carr has no organized staff here, although he can call in all the internal revenue agents he wishes. He says, too. that he has no immediate plans, but Is merely holding a series of conversations with a lot of uneasy people before his campaign is formulated. He is not figuring on a special grand jury, but may have plenty of work for the regular one when it convenes. He has been specifically orderec by Attorney General Murphy to look into labor racketeering charges involving union officials and the Association of Motion Picture Producers, headel by Joseph M. Schenck.

By PAUL HARRISON NEA Service Staff Correspondent HOLLYWOOD.—The assignment of Special Assistant Attorney General Charles H. Carr to do a little inco'me- lax sleuthing in Movietown has induced a case of jitters in a surprising number of quarters. You'd think, from all the indignant howls and premature protestations of innocence, that Carr was about to ask for a blanket indictment of everybody in town. Actually the red-headed young representative of the Department of Justice is looking into a single incident —the alleged §100,900 payoff, or buy- off, of a union official by a producer. It's true that if such a bribe could be proven, there might be a lot of embarrassing complications: (li Violation of the 'Sherman Anti- Trust Act; (2) violation of the so- called anti-racketeering act; (3) conspiracy to violate the Wagner Labor * '" I raised the question whether the president contemplated a truce with Ihe dissident elements of his own party and his foes among the Republicans.

But now he is gravely concerned. " 'Hitler is living dangerously,' he declared about a year ago. TLet him take care'." Bill of Succession Hinted There is no doubt, in the minds of many, that a dream of restoring the Hohenzollerns lo power in GerYriany inspires the ex-kaiser in his patient charting of the war's course. Not for himself, does he dream, say those who have access to the Doom household, but for his favorite grandson, Prince Louis Ferdinand. The story is frequently told that a bill of succession has existed for several years, tucked away perhaps until one day it can be signed. If such a paper exists, it may have been among those piled high on the huge, oak table over which the ex-kaiser bent this afternoon with a large reading glass to pore through atlases.

Even this situation wouldn't be so embarrassing to Hollywood if it were not that the Federal investigation comes at a time of critical inter-union warfare in the movie business. The do'm'inant organization here is the IATSE (International Association of Theatrical Stage Employes), an A. F. of L. affiliate which, includes 10 local unions of technicians and studio workmen, and which recently tried to take in the actors, too.

He was opposed on general principals to interfering in the affairs of the Almighty .... He was very angry over the loss of his barn and he presented the Reverend, as well as the board of trustees, with a bill for $5000 to cover the loss. The case came on trail. "Nonsuit granted with costs," Judge Rumsey iaid. And since that time all the churches in town have felt quite secure in praying for rain whenever they thought that it was needed.

United Studio Technicians' Guild which is financed by the C. I. O. The National Labor Relation's Board has promised a Hollywood plebiscite to determine which outfit shall represent studio labor. Probe May Hurl IATSE If the Department of Justice investigation should prove that IATSE members were sold out to the producers by William Bioff, who represented the union in negotiating a wage-ancl-hours agreement in the 1937 crisis, that union would be pretty thorocghly discredited. If discredited, it might lose the Labor Board election to C. I. O. And the producers wouldn't like that at all. They have just been working out a neyj five- year agreement with the A. F. of L. | people. All this muddle is of no concern whatever to Assistant Attorney General Curr. At first he was amused by the procession of bellowing labor officials and 'm'ovie company representatives who called lo accuse him and his boss, Attorney General Frank Murphy, of trying to deliver Hollywood into the hands of the C. I. O. The majority of the local press and the movie trade papers are hysterical about this "attack by the government on the peace and prosperity of the industry." They argue that because studio workers are well paid it is unthinkable that they may have been sold down the river by an unscrupulous union representative. Carr is no longer amused by the storm that has been caused by his coming to Hollywood. He is thoroughly tired of explaining that if his of 20th Century-Fox; Darryl Zanuck, vice president in charge of production; William Goetz, assistant to Zanuck and a large stockholder in the company; William B.
