Mr. Dearborn told me to keep them believing in Santa, to play my part even with the boys who tried to kid me. Suddenly his voice broke off. He died—right there." A look of undisguised anticipation begnn to spread over Mr. HerrJek's face. "Well, I guess I'm in charge until the son gets here. Have you notified him, Carol?" "No. The doctor asked me to." "Cable him to return at once " "I will." She and Bill left the office together. "Mr. Herrick seems to rel- Uh the idea," Bill said grimly. "I fuppo.se he'll have his own way until Andy comes." "I'd hate to have to work for him very long." "So would I. So would everybody. He's been bad enough with Mr. Dearborn to hold him down." In a moment, Bill asked, "Carol, do you remember Mr. Dearborn had me witness a will for him?" "Yes." _' ( 'What do you imagine was In "Didn't Mr. Dearborn Jet you read it?" she evaded. "No. He asked the doctor and me to sit«n it but he didn't let us rend it. I suppose it all goes to Andy. What do you think, Carol?" "I don't know, Bill." But she did know. The terms of the will were burned upon her memory. She had typed it and taken it to Mr. Dearborn and his lawyer, Mr. Benson, "Do you want to make it that strong?" cautious Mr. Benson had asked when he read it. "Yes, I do," Mr. Dearborn had replied.

BYERS Clerk of Heinpstead , Chancery Court Nov 25, Dec. 2, 9, 16 HOLLYWOOD - There is surprisingly little wailing in the high places of M-G-M over the condemnation by tiie Legion of Decency of the new Greta Garbo film, "Two-Faced Woman." The church censors certainly plucked a chestnut out of the fir'c- for the studio, and if the group wore any less independent and resolute 1 should suspect that it might have been influenced by protests slyly planted by busy little Metro-gnomes. The idea of a movie company starting a campaign of shocked whispering against one of its own pictures certainly is not without precedent. Even the luridw catch-lines in studio-prepared advertisements are intended to convince fans that most films are pretty spicy and daring. Sensation-seekers may not be imprcs- l-V Laws Oliver and son of Dallas are the house guests of Captain and Mrs. R. A. Boyett. -O- Mrs. James L. Jamison, who was called to Hope from Virginia to attend the bedside of Mrs. S. B. Henry, left Tuesday for Little Rock for a holiday visit with relatives. Friends of Mrs. Henry will be happy to know that her condition is much improved. Mrs. S. G. Norton was in Little Rock Sunday evening to hear the Messiah which was presented at the Joe T. Robinson Memorial auditorium. During her stay in the city she was the guest of her daughter, Miss Rebecca Norton. Mrs. J. M. Bash, Mrs. A. E. Slusser, and Jesse Bush spent Monday in Little Rock. sed by torrid superlatives, but they'll stand in line when a picture has 1 been formally dunuunccd as "immoral jin its attitude toward marriage; containing suggestive scenes, dialog, situations and costumes." Of course no studio wants to bring down the wrath of a body as powerful and militant as the Legion of Decency, which backs up its (.Visions with pulpit announcements to some 20,000,000 Catholics, and which wields groat influence with many more millions, whatever their religions. Some Favor Shelving The Garbo picture, though, is rather a special case. In this instance, the Legion of Decency's action came at a time when Metro may have wanted to hold hack the film for revision and retakes before putting it into general release. I have talked with several studio people who saw it, and some said frankly that it is a poor and generally disappointing effort. Two said that it should have been shelved for the preservation of Miss Garbo's artistic reputation. All said that as far us morally objectionable aspects of the picture are ci-ncci-jiod, they were mystified as to why it was singled out from among many recent racy comedies for condemnation. "Two-Faced Woman" was not press- previewed in Hollywood, and I have not seen it. But I do know the story, and I was not being merely metaphorical in an earlier reference to it as a chestnut. It is essentially Ferenc Molnar's 30-year-old play ,"The Guardsman," after being given what Hollywood calls "the old sex switch- croo." That is, instead of a husband J------ l Tjn^j-T_^^^ Women of the World Today Ruth Collins'Job 1$ Helping Women Lawbreakers By ADELAIDE KEHR AP Feature Service Writer Ruth Collins' job is helping women who have broken the law. She is head of New York's House of Detention. Into her window-barrec office in the last 10 years have come more than 50,000 women. They awai trial or have been already convict ed of such misdeameanors as petty larceny, alcoholism, prostitution or disorderly conduct. I asked her to tell me the rea cause behind their crack-ups-^-and got a surprising answer. "The chief cause is ego that has run amok," she said. "Of course the obvious causes are conditions the women nearly all share—poverty, lack of education and a lack of stabilized home environment. Because of those they grow embittered and develop a ruthless defensive I-come- first attitude. But behind that is a great longing to excel in something, to be looked up to and to secure affection for themselves. "One of the most difficult women we ever had was a Slav, who quarreled with everybody, no matter where we put her. Finally, at her own suggestion, we got her materials to make laces as she had done in the Balkans. She changed completely and became one of the most tractable and helpful women in the house. She was doing something belter than anyone else and getting recognition for it." Under Miss Collins' direction the women who come to the 'House of Detention are examined and cleaned up physically, then put to work in some institutional job which should equip them to earn their livings Jney also attend classes in English nutrition, hygiene and other subject ind have a chance at music and the ibrary's books. More than half of hose who have served a sentence have left to begin new lives. Mrs. Dorothy Ellsworth works to prevent the kind of crack-ups in women's lives that might lead to the House of Detention. She counsels and helps girls who are hungry and jobless in New York or are" faced with unmarried motherhood. Mrs. Elkworth is Executive Secretary of the New York branch of the Church Mission of Help's Youth Consultation Service—a national organization with 18 branches. Into the old krownstone house where she works more than 1,000 girls from 16 to 25 come yearly for help. Among them are college graduates, orphans released from institutions who have no understanding of life outside them, girls from broken homes or from homes where parents were too strict. Many are run-aways, but the average is-a girl from rural or mining district who was not happy at home or who needs to contribute to the family support. Under Mrs. Ellsworth's guidance they are given vocational tests, outfitted with clothes,' placed in a "shelter" or club until they have been helped to find a job and can take care of themselves again. The unmarried mothers are helped until their I babies are born and they have found j jobs.

"Take the unmarried mothers, for instance. The majority of them tell an 'ugly duckling story.'. They were ignored for a sister who was prettier or brighter. So the first man who showed them attention had an inside track. They often say, 'He was the only one who seemed to take an interest in me.' Incidentally, there has been a slight increase in the number of unmarried mothers we have handled recently. "Another frequent cause of a girl's break with home is her parents' failure to recognize what I call an adolescent's 'crazy quilt emotional pattern.' When young people mature physically they need to mature psychologically, too. They need to make a normal break from complete parental direction. But an adolescent isn't consistent. She may feel and act quite dependent in the morning— and then want to be independent in the evening. "But adolescence is almost too late for a parent to begin to be understanding.

For years, Hollywood has been getting past its own Hays Office censorship (as it did with "Two-Faced Woman") by having various impro-, prieties and attempts at adultery com- I milted by people who—surprise! sur- ' prise!—were legally married all the time. Done Before The funny part now is that Metro did get away with a similar situation only a few weeks ago. The principals were Nelson Eddy and Rise Stevens. The movie was called. "The Chocolate Soldier," although it admittedly was taken outright, without even the old switcheroo, from 'The Guardsman.' Censorship takes an awful toll from the more optimistic studios. Metro paid a whopping sum for "Panama Hattie," which as a Broadway hit dealt with the embarrassing obstacles encountered by a vvirtuous Sadie Thompson among the sailors in the Canal Zone. As a. picture, it now is being returned tto the sound stages for extensive and expensivev retakes, added scenes and general remodeling. Trouble was that after whittling out all the objectionable parts, they had no story left—just six songs by Ann Sothem and some comedy skits involving Red Skelton.
