Roots Thursday. The state president will attend and lunch will be served at the hospital at noon. A program on "Things to Do to KINGS ROW By HENRY BELLAMANN Copyright 1940 NEA Service Inc. JUNGS, CHAPTER XXXI was acutely surprised to find an entirely new nnd strange feeling about Kings Row. What held him here? The hospital? Was it Drake and Randy? Was it Dr. Nolan? Was it his memories of his grandmother, of Renee and Tom Carr, and Cassie, and of people like Colonel Skef- flngton? They had stayed on, those who were hero before him. Herr Berdor/T, lonely, perhaps homesick at times for the idyllic Germany he remembered; Isaac Skefflngton, talking of the civilized charm of country life in his Virginia; his own great-grandfather Mitchell bred in the fastidious and exacting life of a great family tradition — all of them. They stayed on. He had had a bad time in Kings Row. Tragedy and disaster came too early. He had been like a field of young wheat blown down by spring storms. He had straightened but slowly. • • * A CALL from Herr Berdorff •^ begging Parris to see Vera Lichinska, who had given up her playing and returned without warning, began for him another contact with Kings Row tragedy Parris sat in the little living room above the jewelry shop where the Lichinskys had lived ever since Parris had first known them. Vera's fine strong hands lay rather inertly in her lap. "I canceled my tours. I couldn't play," she said. "All at once I seemed to hear myself as if — as if I had never heard myself before. I asked myselE a question — and I couldn't answer it — and then, I couldn't play any more." Vera seemed to understand why it had all happened. As a child she was a prodigy, playing wholly by intuition, but without real education. Later, abroad, she tried to fill in her background with reading, theater, exhibitions, things she learned a great artist should have. Yet these arts expressed emotions — grief, pain, love, sorrow— that she had never experienced. She had only been frightened, as a little girl, much and often, by her family's sense of inferiority; by her father telling her she must work hard — harder — harder, or "What will Kings Row say?" "We i.^ou^J the asylum once. I remember the barred windows — vividly. I asked my father what the place was, and he said it was there they 'locked up crazy people who ain't smart no more'. I decided then that I knew why my father was so afraid I wouldn't be 'smart,' and do well with my fiddle. Simple in a way, isn't it?' "Ye-es. Childish fear. But you learned soon enough what 'crazy meant. Wasn't the fear gone then?" "No, Parris. The things I feared are not in Kings Row, but here— inside of my own headl I have broken a connection between my fingers and some hidden source of music which was what had been called my talent. I cannot play." "It will come back. You'll have to rest, then begin again, quietly, simply, like a child." "What I seem to be most afraid of, Parris, is the asylum here in Kings Row. I've taken a room in Carrier street so that I can look right out on it—all the time. I've got to stare it down. I stand every night and look at it until the lights are out. I can't let it get the better of me, Parris!" * * * pARRIS was disappointed in his A efforts to aid Vera. It was not long before Vera shut herself up for good in the little room on Carrier street. Parris explained to Herr Ber- dorff, who spread his hands with a gesture of incredulity. "One day she iss a great violinist; the next day she cannot play! I do not understand!" The two men talked, each somewhat surprised after years of acquaintance at what he found in the other. Herr Berdorff was a little distressed to find in Parris a strain of something that seemed at times not quite bitter, but perhaps verging near it. Something a shade disillusioned and doubtful. These darker tones in Parris were deepened when Herr Ber- dorff returned to Germany. His little congregation did not want him any longer. They wanted someone who was less devoted to music—someone more of a pastor. Parris had begged him to stay, to take the chair of German at Aberdeen. "Parris!" Herr BerdorfTs voice was stern. "I am a preacher. My real work—that is for God. I could not do something else— never." * * * J-TERR BERDORFF had been gone two days and Parris was burning with a wearisome mixture of resentment and regret when Gary Whitehead called him. Whitehead, a lawyer with Colonel Skefiington's old firm, had called at the suggestion of Mrs. Skefflng- :on; who hoped he might be able to do something for Benny Singer. "Doctor, he's in serious trouble," Whitehead said. "Seems that a gang of half-grown kids around Jinktown have been nagging him, playing jokes and the like for a long time. This afternoon they were at it again, and this Singer fellow got a gun and shot into the gang—just outside of his gate." "Any of them seriously hurt?" "He killed two of them, Dr, Mitchell." The commission appointed to examine Benny Singer and pass on his responsibility for his acts consisted, to Parris' extreme dismay, of an antagonistic doctor, a pompous one, a substitute professor of psychology, a law partner of Fulmer Green, the new prosecuting attorney, and the Reverend Mr. Cole, with whom Parris had had words when he first returned to Kings Row. Parris, acting chairman, controlled himself with the greatest difficulty through the courtroom 1 proceedings. The discussion was personal, vindictive, unintelligent and stubborn. Parris had no hope of conciliating these inexplicably prejudiced men. Yet he elaborated his thesis of temporary insanity, basing his arguments on Benny's, life as he had known it from the days in primary school. He argued hospital- and rehabilitation against prison or gallows. He reminded them of society's duty to the weak and the deficient. They were tight-lipped, unyielding. Dr. Cole, indignant and self- righteous, pivoted his judgment on a chance to repay Parris for that old altercation. Parris arose and bowed slightly. "You have helped this afternoon to hand a helpless man over to legal murder. I seem to recall that another judge in circumstances not entirely dissimilar first washed his hands. I doubt, Dr. Cole, that such a simple procedure would serve to cleanse your own." He turned to the staring group of men. "Good afternoon, gentlemen. I trust that all of you may be able to sleep well tonight." Parris elbowed his way out of the crowded courtroom. Benny had not really realized what was happening. He had smiled and looked interested through the whole day, while Fulmer Green ranted, rabble-roused, made jokes about the evidence, clowned, played for the death of a luman being. There was no saving Benny. 3am Winters built the gallows. Parris walked with Benny .up to hem one balmy afternoon in early May, holding his arm and talking quietly. Benny looked down at the group of upturned faces. Fulmer Green was there. Wardlaw, editor of the ~)hronicta. "Hello, everybody," he said.

Robert Montgomery bids hilarious farewell to Irene Dunne in Hollywood before leaving to take up active duty with U. S. Navy. PAGE TMRte their "Capitana" through the Same latitudes, at approximately the same season, a turtle dove did alight on the Morjson ship. "The explanation is simple." says Dr. Morison, "It was the migrating season; the doves (one for Columbus, one for my ship) had been blown off their normal course." Columbus mentions also entering a small harbor in the Bahamas Which still is not on the charts. Biographers have therefore assumed the navigator was wrong, and blithely have had hint put in at half a dozen other harbors instead. But Dr. Morison found the harbor exactly where Columbus said it was. It was the same with Columbus' first landing on Cuba. This he describes accurately, according to Dr. Morison, by means of a mosque-like hill he saw. The hill is at Bariay, but writers for many years have "disagreed," and practically every town on the north coast of Cuba claims the landing. And Columbus was not fooled by what he found—on his third volage he knew quite well he had found a new world, although Amerigo Vespucci got a lot of the honor. This was due, in a large measure, to the words used by the two men, Dr. Morison believes. Columbus spoke of his "other world," and Vespucci of his "new world." The latter phrase caught on. Chris Columbus Had the Idea Harvard Professor Sails Same Ocean Route By JOHN SELBY Wide World Arts Editor NEW YORK—When Samuel Eliot Morison finally got around to writing the biography of Columbus he had had in mind since 1916, he went at it with a compas. This tall, spare .reasonably austere Harvard professor decided the best way to trace down Columbus' manner of thought as well as his accomplishment was to do it through his sailing. So Dr. Morison, on several voyages, sailed as nearly as he could along the tracks explored by Colum- bus, and he came out with the livest and probably the most exact story of Columbus eytant—"Admiral of the Ocean Sea." He also laid a lot of historical ghosts, and acquired a mild phobia or two. One of these last, he explained the other day on his way to Johns Hopkins, to which university he has been lent for the season, is against the teachers who tell their pupils that Columbus was proving the earth to be round. "There was no question," says Dr. Morison, "even in Columbus' time, that the earth was round; the question was how big it was. Columbus had it 25 per cent too small—and that led him to misplace Japan considerably, in his calculations." And this sailor-biographer resents a good deal those arml-chair navigators who decided Columbus was wrong on many points just because the incidents seem improbable. For example, Columbus says that at a certain point on his first voyage a turtle dove landed on his ship. Turtle doves do not habitually land on ships in those latitudes.

HAYNES CO. be at the mercy of thousands of bit players and extras whose judgment j is likely to be influenced more by j personal prejudices than by critical ] standards. Many of them don't even see all the pictures involved in the nominations. This year, in addition to that sort of grumbling, it's pointed out—less significantly—that some of the efforts which won awards were partial flukes. For instance, RKO scarcely deserves any share in tile glory attached to Joan Fontaine's best-performance prize for the lead in "Suspicion." The studio did its best to keep her out of the role, which it wanted to go to Michele Morgan, but Alfred Hitchcock insisted on having Miss Fontaine. Originally. Columbia wanted no part of the "Hero Comes Mr. Jordan" story. Studio heads opposed Al Hall for months because he wanted to make it. And finally it won an Academy award for its story and screen play . . Gary Cooper didn't want to do "Sergeant York," but it won him an Oscar . . . Donald Crisp, honored for the best supporting actor's performance, was a last-minute choice by 20th-Fox, which had tried repeatedly and for many months to bring Wilfred Lawton from England for the role in "How Green Was My Valley." "Gold Rush" Back Best picture I've seen in months is one made in 1925—Charlie Chaplin's "Gold Rush," reissued with a distinguished musical score and narration written and spoken by Chaplin. It will be released in April. I went to the preview fearing that changing standards of comedy and technical progress in pictures would make the old effort seem pretty corny. Instead, it's swell. In those spots where silent film technique was too melodramatic, or where shrugs and leers were overemphasized, Chaplin's narration always came to the rescue with some ribbing remark that won a laugh. No part of Chaplin's performance required any such camouflage, though. The dance of the rolls and the eating of the boiled shoe by the two starving men in the prospector's hut arc still the most delightful sequences you'll find in a year of movie-going. Shortage Scenes The tire and automobile shortages have provided new dramatic values for uses of cars in movies. In the first place, to cooperate with the government's requests for strictest economy, cars normally will be shown driven at modest speeds—no more needless roaring getaways or brake- shrieking halts. There'll be upsets and collisions and blowouts in the normal course of screen plays, and they're already c- liciting groans of regret from audiences. Such destruction or abuse hat. so much significance they scarcely can be considered funny.
