Among them is that one-armed hero >f Dakar who keeps on refusing a tension and big offers for picture •ights to the story of his exploits. In his year-end report, Will Hays announces that motion pictures are (ill in their infancy, but he has every hope for them. Incidentally, the trade press is plenty alarmed ubout vaudeville's inroads on the movie jox office: says Hollywood will take a terrific beating until three-dimensional color film is in general use. The Hoys Office's only cognizance of this is a warning that "Nudity is not the way to prosperity, 1 ' and a ban on the new .^pun-glass sweaters. Well, Did Slit? As announccel regularly every yeai since 1932, Mary Pickford still is planning to re-enter active production. She also may star .in a remake of her e;arly "Poor Little Rich Girl", and is understood to have set aside !ji2,2. r >0,OflO for the job. Buddy Rogers will have the role of the; grandfather. While Deanna Dur'rjin's quarrel with Universal faces no prospect of settlement, the? sludio and three other companies are bidding for her small daughter, Deanna, Jr., who seems certain to be the screen's next singing prodigy . . . The Bing Crosbys expect their 12th boy in mid-April. Bing will fly to the Antarctic immediately afterward to join Bob Hope rmd the location company making "The Road to Little America." Dotty Lamour will wear a fur sarong. Jack O;ikie, who's 49, has won his battle for a rewriting of his leading role in the new filmusical, "Touch down." Instead of being cast as a college freshman who saves the game in the last minute, he'll now be seen as a college sophomore who saves the gume in the last 10 seconds. Batty Atlolf The Will Hays of motion picture in Europe's Federated States, is more than a tourist in Hollywood. He's huddling with executives on a deal to exchange stars and top directors between America and the new world. Incidentally this fellow says the Federated States, after these five sweat-stained years of reconstruction, want no glimpse of war pictures—just comedies and musicals. However, there's one creepy-jcepy which is doing business—a French-made film speculating on the wild yarn lhat Adolf Hitler is still alive, a gibbering madman imprisoned in a mountain cave by the last few Serbian Chet- niks. Another echo of World War II reached Hollywood today with the arrival of a little man from little Japan with a proposition to trade silk for English-language movies. He'll get some, too. An inquiry to Washington brought word from the OWRC (Office of World Reconstruction Coordination) that silk, with chemical treatment, is almost as good for a Blasts by British j'^vi;- ^'y^fff 357! expected early in February, will be £cw industrial purposes as our moboy: also says she'll dress him in overalls, call him Butch, and never let him see the inside of a studio.

Andy Dearborn staved back a Srier. "Carol! You here?" "I—I—," she stammered. He Jiands trembled like a schoolgirl' caught stealing the teacher's apple "I—you see—" "Secretary turns burglar?" H asked quietly. A hint of gentlenes in his tone should have reassure her. But it didn't. "You're looking for the will?" "Yes. Because you would like t see it destroyed! Because yo aren't man enough to face the consequences—afraid what Mr. Herrick says is true, that your father wouldn't trust you with the store!" "What good would it do for you to lind it'.'" His eyes probed hers. "I could see your father's wishes respected. No matter whom it hurts!" "You think I'm afraid it will hurt me?" he asked levelly. She bit her lips, nodded numbly. "In the lust few days," he continued, "I've learned a little of what you did for me. You knew Mrs. Milligun and Mrs. Grover thanked me for their refunds. Well, I've had dozens like them. Small complaints that you corrected. Miss Fanny, loo, came to tell me about her chicken farm. They all spoke of the letters I was supposed to have written." I didn't dream they'd come ir; erson." "It all made me realize what should be doing. I did some becking up on Herrick and found he was taking credit for vcrything you did, found that e blamed Bill unfairly." "Yes, I know. I was near the fflce when you told Mr. Herrick 10 was through. It made me— n-oucl of you," she faltered, "ior minute. Then I heard Mr. H crick's proposition and, practically, our consent to it, I guess it won't do any good for me to argue that 'ou're wrong in letting him de- itroy the will?" "Would it make any difference :o you?" There was a new light .n his eyes. It twisted her heart with the torture of loving a man she couldn't respect. She lifted her chin. "Yes, Andy, t would make a difference." Her eyas told him why but her lips were quick to deny it. "You see, I promised your father that his wishes would be followed." * * * "CO you were looking for the *^ will to keep your pledge to him? That's like you, Carol. Bu Herrick would never hide it in hit office. He told me that if it should be found it could never be tracec to him. That suggested a plant to me. And I was right." "A plant? I thought of that, too I looked several places." "But not the one place he would be most likely to put it." His hand went into his breast pocket and withdrew a long folded paper. "I have it here, Carol." "But where in the world did you find the will?" "The last place you would have looked. In one of those old city directories in your office!" "In my oflice?" she gasped. "Yes.

The two small you and without that his own ilt couldn't be proved." "It can't matter, can it, Andy?" She was remembering that he wanted it destroyed anyway. "I suppose you put Mr. Herrick off only so you could get the will and do away with it yourself. Now you won't have to sign his contract," she finished tonclussly. "I put Herrick oil' because I wanted to find the will. Yes. That's right. But I don't expect to destroy it," he said with determination. "I want it to be recorded, respected, followed." Ho paused before he added. "Even ii it means I lose everything. I'm not too old to start over. There's nothing to keep me from foundini a store of my own. My fathei did it with no capital except his two hands and a willingness to words had her heart in them. He could smile now. "Well, are we going to read this will?" She could smile with him. ! Yes, Andy, we're going to read it." But Carol couldn't keep her eyes on the pages. She wanted to watch Andy's face. * * * C_HE saw the muscles of his jaw tighten when he came to the part about the jury. She saw a look of admiration when he read the last paragraph which ordered the store sold and the proceeds given to charity. "He'd be proud of you, Andy!" He put his arm around her. "You must have known something of the conditions of the will all the time." "Yes." It was good to share her secret with him. "I typed it but I gave Mr. Dearborn my word that 1 would never reveal its contents." "Yet you saved Dearborn's •eputation in spite of me. At cast the store will be closed with ts fine name intact." "It won't be closed," she said firmly. "I'm on that jury, too. I'll get a hearing. I know what you told Mr. Herrick before you read the will. I know you're going to do what your father would have wanted." Yes. I've been blind to the responsibility he always tried to show me. Bui 1 sec my way now." "It's a way of happiness. . . ." He drew her close. "Yes. Yet why should you do so much for my father and me?" She clung to him. "I had to do it," she murmured into his shoulder, ''because—" "Because--you love me," he said huskily. "I've been blind to that, too!" Exultation swept away every doubt she had ever had oi Andy Dearborn, bringing a warm glow of ecstasy.

Clubs Marlhrook The Marlbrook Home Demonstration Club met at Marlbrook Tuesday Dec. IGth. The roll was called, there were 14 present. We sang "America the Beautiful" after which we had a special prayer for our country as well as other war torn countries. We promised each other to do our bit toward war defense no matter how small it seemed. Our clothing leader, Mrs. Bailey, read a very encouraging letter from Miss Fletcher. This letter stated the Home Demonstration Clubs had done quite a bit toward helping war torn Britian. We were certainly thrilled to think we could do a little toward helping human beings in distress—We shall continue America Arms Lions Prepared For Air Raids Won't Roam in Blackout If Author- ites Can Help It By JACK DEVLIN NEA Service Staff Correspondent , NEW YORK — In a way, it does seem sort of funny when you stop to think about it ... There you'd be in Times Square, say, in the midst of a blackout and aerial bombardment when all of a sudden you would walk right smack into a lion or a tiger or an elephant, A real live sho' 'nuff one, too, fresh out of a blitzkrieged zoo. Well, even if it would make a swell yarn to spin over a highball or at dinner after the war, you can perish the thought as far as the zoo people around here are concerned. Like the Boy Scouts, their motto also is "Be Prepared." Armed Guards Ready to Mow Down Beasts Taking a tip from London's war- experienced zoologists, the animal experts here have turned the big Bronx Zoo into an armed camp. Similar precautions arc being taken at other zoos in Central Park, Brooklyn and Staten Island. If a bomb knocks any cages loose,without kayoing their inhabitants, the guards will form the city's first line of defense and mow 'em down like a Prohibition Era gang leader. | At least that's the way officials j have things figured out now. But they generally do admit a secondary plan calls for destroying the animals ahead of time just to make sure that a vagrant stick of bombs couldn't make New York look as if a Noah's Ark was wrecked somewhere in the vicinity. Meanwhile, the Bronx Zoo guards j are on 24-hour duty and taking mark- manship training at the police aca- .envy. Additional fire-fighting appara- us IK being acquired and maintenance Tien are bcng taught how to man he pumps. Already, when the shades of night ;egin to fall, the keepers are shoo- ng the lions, tigers, and other carn- vorous species of pels into special steel and concrete inner sleeping com- jartments where, everybody hopes, hey will stay put come what may. n addition, the elephants are now be- ng chained up each night. You will probably be interested, and naybe glad, to know that the poisonous snakes aren't presenting any problem at all, hardly. If they weren't nade casualties by a bomb hit, zoo officials declared reassuringly, they would be immobilized by the cold within a few minutes" after they vipuled outside their steam-heated shelters. Zebras Escaped During London Bombing Technical consultant at the Bronx Zoo is Capt. Jean Delacour, a mem- ocr of the council of the London Zoological Society. The problem hero is considerably more simple than in London, lie said, because the Bronx Zoo comprises ISO acres of land enclosed behind a high fence. This area, he said, should give the bombed animals plenty of elbow room for dashing around until they were ready to settle down. Altogether, the zoo has 2500 animals, reptiles and birds. In London a bomb popped a bird house at the zoo and a flock of ravens soared out and away. Apparently the excitement outside proved too much because they all scooted back again later. The only animals to escape, over there were some zebras. They pranced up and down through the blackout for a while, possibly scaling some people into going on the wagon, anfl finally were rounded up uninjured. Fertilizer Fish . Almost 7000 men and 4000 boats of ^ North Carolina are employed in the menhaden industry every year. The menhaden is a fish used principally in fertilizer. It is estimated that more than 50,000,000 radio sets are in use in the United States. . six years. He lilted her chin and bent to kiss her lip?.
