Call Is Made for Furniture for Bed Cross Sewing Koom The local Red Cross chapter has secured a room in the Elk's hall for the purpose of establishing a .sewing and work room. The furnishing of the room will be the'duty of the local John Cain chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Through this column they are making an appeal to all ladies to search their attics for suitable furniture for the room. Naturally, they will need ihairs, tables, desks, cashiinis, and lamps; however the greatest demand is for .sowing machines. Any person having these articles to lend to the Red Cross for thu duration is urged to call -188. The furniture will be called for if necessary.

None of her movie roles to date has reflected more than the least fraction of the impish quality that hides behind her proper-young-matronish demeanor. Half of Hollywood, for instance, believes her , walk-out from Universal was partly due to resentment of Charles Laughton in "It Started With Eve" and a belief that he had stolen the picture. Today I heard about the squabbles of Bob Cummings, Laughton and Miss Durbin, ' ' " and my informant was one Clyde Holloman, and Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Holloman.

The three of them worked out a number of routines to plague executives or visitors—cither to gain a rest or to get revenge, or maybe just for the heck of it. Starinjj Campaign One day Miss Durbin was genuinely angered by a contemptuously loud remark from one of a party of women visitors. The stranger said the ginger ale being sipped by the young actress was probably part whisky. Soon afterward Laughton and Cummings began a campaign of retaliation by staring and whispering. With studied indifference they'd stroll past the offending visitor, but always would manage to glance at her. The rest of the company knew that something was going on, and dozens of people began looking curiously at the woman, who by now was in an obvious nervous dither. The victim soon fled. That gives you an idea. A more subtle scheme of ribbing was one that "preyed on a victim's curiosity. One of the three principals, perhaps Cummings, would engage him determinedly in dull conversation.

Her voice was thin and colorless as she answered. "I don't know, Parris." "Never mind, honey, never mind. If you don't want to say it —but somehow I guess I just want you to say the words." She stood quite still as though his question had somehow taken away her power to move or think. There was, he thought, almost a look of horror on her face. "Never mind, Cassie darling, "Please don't say it, Parris. Everything is perfect until we try to talk about it. Don't, try to understand me." She was something to him that escaped clear definition. All that he and Cassie were to each other seemed to have its existence in a separate world—a world of their own in which they were accountable only to.each other. It was like—some almost forgotten words came easily to his mind—it was like his nnd Renee's "secret lake." It was still dark when they reached the gate on Cherry street. He kissed her. "Good night— my sweetheart." ' heart grew heavier and colder with every step. He did not wish to go home. He felt shut out of it. "He went slovviy up the terrace steps and to his room. He had been there but a few minutes when Anna knocked and opened the door. "Ach, Parris, you are here!" Parris sprang to his feet. "She—is she—?" Anna looked out of the window at the coming dawn. "She hasn't known anything. I called for you, but you were not here. I thought maybe—I hoped, Parris, maybe it would be over before you came in." Parris did not answer. He was not even thinking. This was the hour. "Parris, I think maybe you better come now." Madame was propped high on her pillows. "Anna. She is asleep?" Suddenly a low rasping sound grated through the room. Parris started with a kind of terror. He had heard that sound once before "Anna!" The whisper was wrenched from him. Parris clenched his hands. "An«a—stop it—some way!" Anna laid her hands on his shoulder. "Listen to me, Parris. 'This could go on for many hours. I think—I think I cannot stand it. Listen to me, my child—if I take the pillows from under her head she—she will die quickly. Think now—it is for you to say." The color left his face. He looked back at Madame and then, very slowly, back to Anna. He nodded slowly. "Yes," he said. "Quickly." Very gently Anna removed the pillows and dropped them on the floor. Presently a long, hesitant sigh fluttered on Madame's lips, and stopped. "You go now," Anna said quieHy. * * * '"THE week after Madame von Eln's funeral, Parris made necessary arrangements with Colonel Skeflington and Patterson Lawes of the Burton County Bank about his funds, the sale of the property. Then, leaving Anna in charge of the sale, he moved in with Drake McHugh. * * * JJARRIS was sorting and packing books. He sat back on his heels and wiped his face on his gleeve. "It's been awfully good of you, Drake, to take me in—just now." "I wanted you to stay here. I wish you wouldn't go away at all." "You haven't said anything about Louise." "Ain't seen her—to talk to her— since that day you came along." "You're not fair to her." "How do you figure that out?" "Well, she can't follow you around and try to see you." Parris reached for a pillow and put it under his head. "Gee, I'm too tired to get up from here." "You've had a pretty big day, kid. Take it easy. . . . Listen! What's that?" "What's what?" "I hear someone running up the drive." Parris sat up. There was a rush of steps on the long side porch, then a quick knock at the door. Drake opened it, and Cassandra Tower came into the room. She was out of breath and a little disheveled. "Cassie! What's up?" "I've got to talk to you a minute." Drake wheeled a chair forward. "Sit down, Cassie." She looked at him and nodded but remained standing. Parris stared curiously at Cassandra. She had that look he had seen a few times before—desperate—a sort of shocked desperation. "Sit down, Cassie. What's the matter?" "Parris—you remember the other night?" "Of course!" His voice was suddenly hoarse. "You said — when — when you came back—would I marry you." "Yes, Cassie. I meant it. I'll say it again." "You—you did mean what you said?" "Of course I did." "Then let me go with you— now." "Now?" "Yes, now. I've got to, I'll run away somewhere—let me go with you. I—I can take care of you." "But Cassie, I don't understand you. I—why—I can't get married now. I've got to get through—all that study first. Why—" He stopped. It seemed an unbelievably absurd proposal. Why—he almost wanted to say he wasn't grown up yet. Suddenly, every vestige of expression left her features. Her face seemed to go dead. "Never mind." Her voice, too, seemed utterly lifeless. She turned to go. Parris was beside her instantly. "Wait a minute, Cassie. Sit down, and—and tell me what's happened." She looked as if she didn't hear. "Here. I'll take you home." "No, no! No, you can't. You mustn't. I'm all right, now." Drake picked up his hat. "You'd better let me walk part of the way with you anyhow, Cassie." "Thank you, Drake. No. Good night." And before either of them could say another word she had gone. They heard her running again, going back the same way she had come. "I can't leave her there alone to take it by herself—whatever has happened." '•I believe she just got to thinking about you going away and just kind of went off her base for a minute." "It might have been just a—a kind of hysterical outbreak." "Says Dr. Mitchell!" "You don't think I ought to try and find out some way about Cassie? For half a cent, I'd just go in to see Dr. Tower and—" "And get yourself kicked all the way to the front gate?" "Well, what is the matter with him, anyway? Cassie's a girl like anybody else." "Yes, but you know as well as I do that Dr. Tower is a man like nobody else! Ain't he kept her in as strict as if—like she was a prisoner? I don't know what's the matter with people like that. But you know darn well ain't anything about the Towers been like anybody else." Be Coiituaued,) Danny Kaye's Silent Partner Two*Year Rise of Comic Wasn't Luck -Here's Why By ADELAIDE KERB Wide World Feature Writer Sylvia Fine has turned the trick that is every wife's aim. She helped bring her husband success and fame. When "she and Danny Kaye were married two years ago, they had $40 and no jobs. Today Danny is star of the Broadway musical hit "Let's Face H," and his rollicking singing and pantomime lays 'em in the aisles. Broadway's wise boys will tell you Danny "has what it takes" himself But they also know some of his biggest hits have been in sketches coauthored by his wife and accompined by her at the piano, and that she coached him, advised him and stood by when the going was stiff. Dannv tells 'em. She gets the credit He never takes a curtain call after a .benefit without saying, "I'll like to introduce someone without whose help I wouldn' be here —Sylvia Fine my wife." ' Sylvia Fine was not born to show business. She was the daughter of a Brooklin dentist. She whipped through high school and Brooklin College and expected to be a consort pianist— strickly Carnegie Hall. But the clever verse she wrote for her college newspaper and her father's advise steered her on another course. She molded her verse into songs and worked in a summer children's camp as dramatic counsellor. Eventually she worked with Max Liebman, • director of the summer theater at Camp Tammiment, Pa., and began a writing collabration which lasts to this day. Then at the Sunday Night Theater of the Hotel Barbizon Plaza in New York she met Danny Kaye, who had trouped for 10 years in the midwest and Orient, but meant nothing in Broadway's life. No love at first sight Recently Sylvia, seated in their New York apartment, told the story of their acquamtship,- marriage and climb. Told it in a voice with a curious quite humility which never advanced itself. "When I saw Danny first I didn't like him one bit — his clothes his demeanor — but I did recognize his amazing talent and versatility. So I called Max and said; 'I've found a genius. He's covered with circuit corn and cheap theatrical tricks, but there's pure gold underneath.' Max agreed with me when he saw him Danny's clothes and his haircut, consulted about his technique Gradually Danny came to have more and more faith in my judgment. And he was wonderful — never resented a criticism." ' In time the three worked together in "Straw Hat Revue," which marked Danny's first Broadway. appearance. It closed and he went to Florida for a holiday with other members of the cast. But he had not been there long before he telephoned Sylvia "I never missed anyone so much in my life Come down." -She did — and they were married on the $40 stake. Back in New York they went to their sep- m earshot and begin an animated discussion of something apparently very exciting or spicy. Held fast by the earnest platitudes and questions of Cummings, and perhaps even physically restrained, the victim would be bending an ear toward the other conspirators, trying to catch the gist of their talk. Arguing Artists The simulation of bitter quarrels was always an easy way to clear a set or win a breathing spell, because even Hollywood brass hats make tiptoe exits when stellar temperament explodes. Laughton usually started them by posing as the elder player offended by some outrageous bit of dramatic rudeness or hoggishness by either Cummings or Miss Durbin. Stalking out of a scene he'd say quietly, but with apparent effort in controlling his anger: "C/f course you're fairly new in this business, but I must warn you that if you keep on trying such obvious tricks you'll be completely out of pictures within a year." This would bring bitter outbursts from Cummings or Miss Durbin, and in a minute all three would be yelling at each other. Visitors would be hustled off the set, and sometimes even the director, technicians and other players would drift outside for a breath of air. The three friends then would relax and talk about the war. Egypt's Premier New Archbishop o.f Canterbury?

Cosmo Gordon Lang, 77, as head of the Church of England. arate homes and told their families nothing. Nightclubs next Then Sylvia persuaded.- Danny to try nightclub work'— from which he had shied — helped him get a contract, wrote some of has sketches and ac- compined him at the club "La Martinique."'He proved a whopping success. So, for the benefit of their families they were married all over again, "veil, flowers and striped pants." Mrs. Kaye still coaches and advises Danny and (in collaboration with Liebmam) writes a number of his sketches- two of which are hits in the current show. She docs a lot besides. Fusses over his food, admires his new suits, doesn't wear veils or earrings because he doesn't like them, tells htm when he is good, and when his ties are terrible Whenever she talks about him her conversation is peppered with references to "his wonderful talent," "his amazing versality," "his great sense of comedy."
