Always demand Beachcomber Turns Trick Wherein Hairy Jim Reveals Facts About His Life B.v SAM-JACKSON Al' Fenlure Service Writer HALF MOON BAY, ,Calif. - When n boot is .bushed vip somewhere along California's thousand miles of sen coast, the newspaper accounts ore likely as not lo mention a "beachcomber. ' For example: "The wKeck was reported by n beachcomber. ' This has occurred too often to -be the whim of some romantic reporter. The beachcomber plainly is no longer confined to fiction or to cor/,1 islands of the South Seas. He's on our own road map. America seems to have taken him on along with such other tropical importations as- pineapples, 'coconuts and hula hula dancers. Like many a fellow occasionally weary of work ,nnd routine, I have secretly been interested in beach- combing as a profession. This stretch of coast seemed n good place lo seek out its practitioners. Hairy Jim is a dyed-in-the-wool beachcomber of the true South Seas type. His habitat is cooler than a tropical island but it's never cold in the sense that most of the country umleratniids cold. Jim goes around in just a pair of trunks summer and winter. Few people climb down a 200-foot cliff or walk six pr eight miles up the beach to visit the beachcomber.

HOLLYWpOD-There is a real lo-, cal notion that Irving Berlin's "We'll Remember Pearl Harbor" ought to become (he most popular song of this wartime but a couple of top tune- smiths I know wouldn't want their criticism t obe misinterpreted, say its a mistake. America won't go for songs of hale, or vengeance, because music and hatred are just naturally incompatible. When the top war song is written, it will likely be a sentimental ballad like "My Buddy" Or Maybe a catchy martial number like Uver There." The later, you'll recall was no hymn of fury; it was a for-' wardlooking promise of aid and victory. Hollywood moviemakers also are beginning to wonder about the aotion- filled pictures which they scheduled m the first few weeks of their personal indignation. Gradually they're recalling that films of blood and hot lead didn't do well in this country until after World War 1 was won Maybe sentimental stuff is better now, plus comedy, plus insuirational stories' of the behind-the-lines business of putting tfre most-4ind. best fighting tools into Ihe hands' of the men who use them. T this country, incidentally, Eng- land has sent a : film unit to record h.ghbghts .of ; the Nnited State's vast ndustrial war effort.

He's got green-gold teeth and grease in his smile and lie dishes out a hot line of halfway questions. Come to think of it, he hinted around at having a family interest in Tambay." Sears looked embarrassed. "I reckon he's right, in a way. It's a—well, a branch of the family Mowry—Maurie; the name got changed when his line went west " "Then he's really a cousin?" He hesitated and then he said- As a matter of fact, I'm afraid he is.
