By HENRY BELLAMANN KINGS ROW COPYRIGHT 1920 NEA SERVICE INC. Revolution of the Rag Doll Red Head From South Sets New York on Its Ear By DOROTHY ROE Wide World Features Writer It's fitting that a red-headed girl from 'way down south in the land j of cotto nshould set New York on its ear with her impertinent and beguiling new "cotton sculpture." I Elsie Shaver and her Little Shavers have been the talk of the town since her recent exhibition of paintings of American young fry with a Victorian air. Included in the exhibition, just for fun, were several small figures made of cotton batting, a medium which just occurred to the unpredictable Miss Shaver one day, and now opens up a vast new vita of decorating possibilities. A Bit of Dali Born and raised in Tcxarkana, Arkansas. Miss Shaver now lives in a fashionable East River penthouse, keeps house for her mcrchandising- export sister, Dorothy Shaver, and in between times adds to the general gaiety of life by painting, scluplur- ing and decorating the apartment walls willi surrealist whimsy. Elsie is very fond of cotton, having been raised in the middle of it. Right now her sculptured cotton figures occupy a whole set of Fifth avenue windows in one of New York's swankiest department stores. Next to cotton, she likes turnip greens and black-eyed peas, two other hangovers from her southern childhood. The sisters Shaver have a hard lime finding turnip greens in New York. They even have had them flown in from Arkansas at times. Ingenuity Docs U Lack of materials never bothers Elsie Shaver. It was lack of a bouquet of flowers that first started her on her cotton sculpture venture. "I needed some flowers for a vase," she explains, "and I didn't have any. So I found a roll of cotton batting in the bathroom and made some. It worked so well that I decided to try other tilings. The figures arc tinted with water color, and I sometimes use colorless nail polish to give a skin tone. It's lots of fun. I'd like to see school children take it up. And I do believe interior decorators could find many uses for it." They've Caught On Elsie's "Little Shavers," on canvas or in cotton, have a quaint old-world charm which threatens to revolutionize even the field of children's fashions. Stylists are talking about restoring some of the prim sugar-and- spice quality of the "Little Shavers" to children's clothes. Meanwhile Elsie is somewhat dazed by the sudden acclaim which has descended upon her. When things grow too hectic she calms her nerves by painting a new decoration on the kitchen stove or the bathroom mirror, or turning an alcove into a library simply by painting shelves of books on the walls. "The landlord doesn't like it," she observes gaily, "but we d,o." ....., e Pnfrln MHohrll In rending meillclne wllh IJr. Tower, iovtn mynlery. wonder* whr Tower keeps dnuelitor Cnnnnn- drn ma clone <o home.

It was hard to keep the eye from resting on some shining buckle or patent-leather trimming of the harness which rose and fell with her pace. Parris began to feel sleepy. After a while he began to see behind his half-closed lids something like a luminous thread stretching on and on ahead of them. It moved nnd whined faintly, and little figures ran and danced along the silvery transparent line. They were like the people he knew: Drake, himself, Louise Gordon, Cassandra, and over and over again tiny images of Renee, like a long screen of linked paper dolls. He wanted to call out to them, but they seemed very far away. . . . "I guess you and me had better stick together a little bit, Parris. Good gosh, you got to have somebody." "We will; you bet." "I want to get married and all that kind of thing some day, but I want to have all the good time I can first. But—well, you get kind of tired even having a good time." Drake looked very serious. "You know, Parris, I wouldn't tell this to another soul on earth, 'cause I know everybody thinks I'm kind of wild and that I run around an awful lot, and that I ain't steady. But I'm going to surprise some people around this old town. I'm going to settle down hard when I do settle, and," he cut a quick sidcwisc look at Parris, "I'm going to make Louise proud of me." "Is she in love with you, too? Now, I mean." "I don't know. You can't tell anything about Louise." "Well, of course she is. If she wasn't I expect you'd know that in a hurry." Drake blinked at this unexpected perspicacity. "Parris, you know Preston Hill out there west of town?" "Yes, of course. Why?" "I want to buy it." "Good gracious, Drake! What for? It's just a hill." "Kings Row has got to grow, hasn't it? That's the best direction for it to go. Wouldn't that be a good place to build houses— you know, looking down across the creek there, and away out over the country?" Parris was mightily impressed. "Why, that's wonderful! You'd make a lot of money, wouldn't you, and be rich?" "Well, doctors make a pile of money. Wouldn't it be the darnd- est thing if we, you and me, could build houses for ourselves out there, right next to each other?" "Listen, Drake—" Parris wriggled about and pulled one foot under him. It seemed to them at that moment that life was clear and straight ahead of them and pleasant. * * * A LL of the next day, and the next, Parris went about in a pleasantly unthinking haze of mind. That one afternoon with Drake had relieved the whole feeling of loneliness which had weighed on him for weeks. But he did not want to see him—not just now. He could talk to Drake about his work, his hopes and plans, and about a good many of his everyday troubles. But at this moment he longed for someone who spoke the language of another side of his personality. After supper he remembered his notebooks. He had left them in Dr. Tower's study the afternoon he began his unorthodox holiday. He would have to walk into town for them. * * * JT was quite dark when he reached Cherry street. *As he was about to step onto the low porch floor, he saw to his surprise that it was Cassandra and not Dr. Tower Who sat in the deep chair under the green-shaded light. "Hello, Cassandra. It's me— Parris. Didn't want lo scare you," "Why, hello." She arose and dropped her book face down in the chair. "Come in?" The words were distinctly question, and not invitation. "Well, I—I just came after my notebooks. I left them here Tuesday." Parris dropped his cap and coat on a chair. "I've been playing hookey." "From father?" "No. He put me up to it. Said I needed to rest." "He's in St. Louis." Parris felt himself grow a little ill at ease Under her steady scrutiny. He really hadn't had a good look at her lor a long time, and he had forgotten how lovely she was. "Sit down. No, over here—on the couch. It's comfortable." She sat down and pulled a pillow behind her head. She seemed perfectly at ease now. "I—why, do you know, Cassie, I haven't seen you to talk to you, really, in a long, long time?" She cut in suddenly. "It will probably be the only time." He flushed. "Well—why, Cassie?" "I said I couldn't see anyone." He faced her squarely. "Your father won't let you?" "I told you you didn't have to ask questions." "Oh. All right." They talked a little feverishly, and a little jerkily. One moment she seemed to be as he always remembered her, the next she seemed strange and different. She seemed then to look at him from a distance—exactly the way oldefi people sometimes did. A flick of lightning threw hen face into high relief and intensified tho lambent green of her eyes. "My goodness, but you are pretty, Cassandra!" She smiled a thin little smile. "Honest you are—you're prettier than you ever have been, and you always were the prettiest girl in this town." She leaned forward and gave his wrist a quick squeeze, "ThanH you, Mr. Mitchell." Her hand lingered for a moment on his, and] he leaned over and kissed it. "Silly!" But her voice trailed over the word ever so slightly. Again a painful excitement clutched at his throat. Outside a few large drops of rain spattered against the porch floor. "I—I guess I'd better go." "Oh, I'm sorry." She stood up, so close that he felt a little wave of warmth from her. Without hesitation he put his arms around her and kissed her. There was another flash of; lightning and arf instant roll of heavy thunder. She twisted herself free and sat down abruptly, "I've wanted you to do that," she said huskily. "And I've wanted to." "It gets lonely—seeing no one—" "Oh, Cassie!" He wanted to ask her why her father permitted her no friends, why he couldn't be with her often. She shook her head, anticipating his question. "No, Parris. But I want to be with you whenever I may. Just to talk. Will you stay and talk now?" (To Be Continued) McCaskill Mrs. Bill Hood and children Nell and Ruby visited relatives in Spring Hill Sunday.

Harrison in Hollywood •y PAUL HARRISON, NEA Service Correspondent Young Writers Menace Movie Moguls HOLLYWOOD — Pounding away at a screen play out at Universal are two successful young writers who should be regarded with alarm by movie producers, directors and literary celobities—by almost everybody, in fact, except stockholders and theater-goers. Richard Collins and Paul Jarrico arc leaders of a new generation of Hollywood-trained writers. They arc not ex-novelists floundering in a strange and highly technical medium, or ox-dramatists from the thcatuh being contemptuous of the screen. Neither are they screwballs or phony geniuses. They don't work nude, or exclusively between the hours of 3 to 7 a. m., or while harmonizing on a zither and French horn. They and a small but increasing number of other movie writers are simply industrious, highly skilled craftsmen, and as such they are a menace to the whole Hollywood hierarchy. Want Notice Some directors say actors aren't important; most writers say directors aren't important; and practically ev- eybocly agrees producers aren't important. No one, though, has hinted that motion pictures could get along without the creators of stories and scripts. The writers, in turn, would like a little more recognition. Not merely greater credit—although that would be welcome, too, since they now are rated somewhere in the vicinity of the set designer and the creator of coiffures. What writers most want is sufficient authority to prevent mutilation of their work and enough latitude to introduce new ideas. As several other writers, including Preston Sturges, John Huston and Charles Lcderer, have done, Jarrico and Collins want to direct. At least, they want to co-direct one of their own scripts—"so that we can find out what direction contributes to a picture." It's their notion that the relationship should be close—directors should work with writers on final drafts of screen plays, and that writers should be on the sets at least part of the time during production. Bruce Manning, the producer for whom the team now is working, is an ex-writer who used to sit on the sets of the Dcanna Durbin pictures and think up dialog and business as the action went along. And Jarrico and Director Garson Kanin worked together closely on "Tom, Dick and Harry." That sort of co-operation and mutual respect is rare, though. Under- slated Collins: "There is an interesting degree of antagonism between the crafts." Ribs Drummers Collins and Jarrico now are completing a screen play titled "Wonder Boy," but there's nothing autobiographical about it, even though they are both Hollywood veterans at 27. The story isn't about any movie figure but is a satire on salesman- ship and centered on a champion vacuum cleaner peddler. This is the one the authors hope to direct. Along with about a dozen other established film dramatists, Jarrico and Collins have been teaching at the League of American Writers school here. Film cutters, newspaper reporters, refugee authors and people from the stage arc among their pupils, along with local scripters who haven't been doing very well. The instructors say they can't create creative talent, but they can help with mechanics and technique and judgment of story values. Through better screen writing, Hollywood's own stagnant scale of values would have to change, too. Waterless Meals Water never is served with a meal in many European dining places unless it is specially ordered. Sometimes a small charge is made for it then. City Makes Money By Burning Coal EVANSTON, 111. — (IP)— This city is making a profit out of the national campaign to save waste paper. The city collects waste paper to burn in its incinerator, two tons of paper being the equivalent in heat units of a ton of coal. Works Commissioner Joseph Rose discovered that by selling waste paper at $6 a ton, the city could profit nearly for $13 a baled ton and buying coal $2 on each ton of coal and have better fuel for its incineration. Paper collections, it is expected, will total nearly 60 tons a week.
