There are n river, a large wooden bridge, grassy banks and wooden hills, on both sides. For distant vistas, painted scenery covers the walls on all sides. Dislike Uniforms The picture, "Desperate Journey," Is about a bomber-load of R. A. F. flyers being shot down in Germany and making their way back by devious routes and methods. Errol Flynn and Ronald Reagan arc the lends. Some of the extras arc uniformed as German soldiers, and they're not enjoying it, I heard u corporal (Swedish) complaining to n private (Irish): "Tomorrow I'm gonta change clothes before I go to lunch. The way people look at me, I can't cat." The private said, "Yeah, but it don't bother me. I keep thinkin' how in another week I'll have a complete change of costume—and the wardrobe man will be n supply sergeant up at Fort Orel, or whcver the Army's sending mo." Director Raoul Walsh called the cast together for the next scene. Here's the action," eh explained. "Flynn and Reagan are crouched there in the bushes as these German soldiers come along the road. You wait until they pass. Then comes this straggler. You let him get right here, and then Reagan jumps out and bats him on the head with the but of his pistol. Don't kill him, but make it look good. He falls. You both grab him and drag him off the road. It's gotta be fast. You got it?" Reagan asked in amazement: "You mean that with Flynn in the picture I actually get to hit a guy? My, my! Up to now I didn't believe what they said about my being co-starred in this show." "Wh, Ronnie, you get to do all the fighting," jeered Flynn. "They are saving me for the acting!" Tear Jerkcra Barbara Stanwyck and Nancy Coleman were sitting in a wine cellar getting plasted. The picture is "The Gay Sisters." but it isn't a comedy. It's about the decline of a family and the decadence of a mansion, and here were the two gals trying to drink up the last of the wine before they had to move from the house. Luckily the big vault was almost empty. In 20 years a lot of Gaylord wine had flowed under the bridges of numerous patrician noses. After a bit of maudlin dialog, Miss Coloman suggested a good cry. There upon she and Miss Stanwyck broke into tears. They wept and sobbed in n way that'll tear your heart out, but Director Irving Rnpper just stood there and waited, grinning, for nt lonsl a full minute. When he finally called "Cut- Print it!" the actresses looked at each other, rhook their heads and began laughing. "You outsmarted us," Miss Coleman admitted. "We'd planned to open a case of hysterics and keep on crying after the scone was over. But you kept us going so darned long that we didn't have any tears left." «•••• Nickel Magazines Go too Dime in April PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — (/P)— Price of the Saturday Evening ost will be increased from five cents to 10 cents, effective with the issue, of April 11, the Curtis ublishing Company nouncccl this week-end.

I'll be a bum if somebody doesn't give me a job." "Turner'll give you a job, if. you'll take it." "I'll take it." "I'll get you a job, Drake. You can depend on me." "Thank you— sir." Drake arose. "I'm going home." He turned at the door. "If I get a job down here, I'm going to sell the place uptown. It's already mortgaged. Then I'll have a little bit of money anyhow. I'm going to come down here somewhere to live." "And say—" "Yes, sir?" "You'll have to cut out likker." "Why, Drake! What are you doing here?' 1 Randy came cheerfully into the room. Drake flushed darkly. "Yes, I know how I look, Randy. I was in the calaboose last night." "Drake! What did you do?" "Drunk. I wasn't arrested. Sam Winters just — just locked me up so I wouldn't freeze." . "Oh, Drake!" "It won't happen again, Randy. Tour pa's going to get rne a job of some kind." Randy's glance veiled a little. It was a strange look — Drake didn't understand it. It was a faraway look, almost impersonal, but steady as a lamp set on stone. "Go up stairs. some hot water. I'll bring you You wash and shave, and I'll fix you something to eat. Then you're going to bed and get some sleep." Drake went heavily up the stairs. Mr. Monaghan knocked the ashes from his pipe. He had never quite known what to make of his tomboy daughter, but at this moment he felt that he understood her better. She looked exactly like her mother as she stood watching Drake. *. MONAGHAN kept his word, kept his. Mat acquaintance of room at Mrs. Blake's railroad boardinghouse, and spent as much time with Randy as possible. Drake lost his casual, laughing manner, and a part of his good looks was lost with it. He wasn't happy, and showed it. But he was lealthier-looking. He had never seen Louise Gordon again. The thought of her crossed his mind once in a while — a tingling anger mixed with a faint desire. * * * Si'T'HE twentieth century" was beginning to be a familial- phrase. At first it had a fabulous sound, like a connotation of some fantastic futurity. But. one became a little accustomed to it as one learned to write 1900 and 1901 without too much hesitation. The outward changes in Kings Sow, taking place gradually as ;hey did, were not too violent to disturb even conservative people much. Of course, if one stopped to think about it, a lot of things lad happened. Trees gone from ihe courthouse square, and from Union street as far as the Methodist church. Lots of bright new paint and plate-glass store windows. "A smart little city," Hart Sansome said. "As neat and bright as a pin." "Looks like every town its size from Ohio to Kansas," Miles Jackson said. "You can't tell by looking around if you're in Indiana or Iowa. Looks like any town — and just as ugly." But everyone noticed that since the death of his old crony, Colonel Skefflngton, Miles Jackson was less acid. and Turner, Drake an old Drake's Uncle Rhodes, was reluctant at first. He didn't believe too much in the earnestness and sincerity of Drake's resolution, but Monaghan persuaded him. Drake was given a nondescript job as switchman, and general helpei around the freight office. He never set foot in Fritz Bachman's lunchroom again, or took another drink The bank sold the Livingstone house, and Drake paid his debts There wasn't much left but Drake put it in the bank and managec tp .live on his wages. He had a MCHUGH developed a bad cold and laid off from work for nearly a week. He spent most of the time with Randy. One evening after supper he was on his way back to his boardinghouse. He took the short cut through the freight yards as usual. Bill Hockinson was running the switch engine, shifting boxcars for the early freight train the next day. Drake stepped off the track as Bill passed with a dozen empty flats. He waved and Bill shouted something that could not be heard above the rattle and clash of wheels rolling over the switches. He saw Bill waving frantically, and grinned. Some rowdy joke that wouldn't wait. . . . Harley Davis, brakeman on the regular freight run to Camperville, slammed the door of the freight office open. Arnold Schultz the freight agent, grabbed his blowing papers. "Say! What in the hell—" "Quick, Schultz, get a doctor down here! There's been an accident out there. Get Dr. Gordon,' quick as you can!" "What happened, Harley?" "Drake McHugh's been run over." "Sure, sure. Right away." He •ang the telephone and asked the central office to locate Dr. Gordon and send him right away to the reight depot. , "How in the world did such a thing happen, Harley?" "A funny accident, Schultz, You enow that wagonload of tile that's seen standing up there on the edge of the cut for a week?" "Sure, yes, belongs to the tila works. They're waiting for orders to ship it." 'Well, the bank thawed and the] whole wagon fell down—" "On Drake?" "It hit him and pushed hinv under them cars Bill Hockinson's been shunting around." "Run right over him, eh?"' "No. It was just lucky Bill saw' what happened. He was going slow. It just caught Drake as he; came to a stop. Mashed himj Otherwise it would have cut him, right in two." * * * TTJR. GORDON looked up from the table where Drake lay in the freight office. "I'll have to have some help." "What you going to do, Doc?" Dr. Gordon didn't answer. 1 "Someone—you, Davis, get me! some blankets and a half-dozen sheets — anywhere here in the neighborhood, and be quick." "I'll help, Doc. Tell me what you want." Sam Winters stepped into the cone of light that fell from the tin-shaded lamp hanging over the table. "All right, Sam. I'll need some-' body steady. Everybody else get out now. Quick." * * * T~)D. GORDON turned toward the door. "Will somebody stand at this door and keep everybody out?" "I'll do that, sir." Monaghan moved toward the door. "I'll keep 'em out, and when you've finished we'll take him over to my house. Just a few steps." "Good. Now, Sam, let me see." Dr. Gordon proceeded with his examination. ! "What'll have to be done, Doc?^ "Amputation." "His leg? Which one?" "Both. Close to the hips. There's a chance." For nearly three hours both men worked under the crude light of the oil lamps. Then Dr. Gordon folded the blankets about Drake and stepped to the door. (To Be Continued) whirl of inflation and depression Inter flattened the farmers. Mortgage foreclosures ripped the security supposed to go with possession of land, riots in the midwest stopped foreclosure sales and agricultural instability rocked the nation. These opponents sec a repetition, which certainly .vould be an economic jolt difficult to withstand in post-war- years with a heavy armament bill. Other economists and farm leaders assert the brakes in the price control bill would prevent such a catastrophe. The general public should be more concerned with the probable effect upon the total war effort. If the Bankhead move would seriously block the war drive then it should never go on the books. If, on the other hand, it would merely provide agriculture with a more equitable share of the national wealth, then it cannot be seriously opposed. Most important, nothing should be permitted that would in any way divide the country, group against group. The idea that city slickers are attempting to take bread from farmers' mouths or that the agricultural interests seek to boost living coss out of sight should be squelched. Anything bound to hinder the victory drive is just as bad for farmers as for city wage earners. The forces battling ove the Bankhead amendment should at once settle on some cason- ablc compromise before our enemies (jet more con solalion from our bickering n the home front.
