Harrison in Hollywood •y PAUL HARRISON, NEA Service Correspondent Movie Sons Are Getting in the Scrap HOLLYWOOD — The screen colony £ is hopping mud about a widely printed charge that heads of (he studios are trying to get their sons and sons- in-law into soft, safe, commissioned branches of the armed services. Nepotism and all j-orts and wangling and influence for good jobs in ordinary business may not have been uncommon in the past, but nobody can think of a single instance in which that could be suspected now in war activities. The son of the head of one studio is in the Navy, and he enlisted months before the war began. The son of another studio chief is an Army private. A third example is an artillery officer, but he was long a commissioned reservist; and a fourth has been a reserve officer several years. And that's all the sons there are, unless you count Junior Laemmle, whose father once headed Universal. Leammle recently was inducted as a private. He was the producer of "All Quiet on the Western Front," Hollywood's greatest anti-war picture. Now he has been assigned to the Signal Corps to aid in making propaganda films to stimulate America's war spirit. There's one. anecdote about a young executive who asked for special duty. He's such a hypochondriac that, after being drafted, he applied for assignment to a pill box. Plan Anti-Jap Films A writer called in by Ernst Lubitsch to work on a screenplay says the original story sounds like the funniest war yarn ever headed for the screen; it's a satire on Japanese espionage ...

Here in our lesson, when He asked the disciples what men were saying about Him, it was not in any spirit of mere curiosity, and certainly without any of that vanity which has often been a dominant quality in men who have come to positions of power or influence. Jesus always manifested that deep and complete humility which He enjoined upon His disciples. More likely, it was a question concerning how much the people really apprehended the nature of His teaching and His mission. And it was in line with this thought that He challenged the disciples, "Who do ye say that I am?" In reply, Peter made his great declaration, "Thou art the Christ." The disciples had followed Jesus with the full conviction that He was the- Messiah Whose coming their prophets had proclaimed. Why did Jesus charge them that they should tell this to no man? Probably because it was of little value that men should have a sort of secondhand acknowledgment of His Mes- siahship. It means nothing to believe that Jesus is the Christ unless the belief has taken root and has reality in uor hearts and lives, and is nol just a hearsay which we have adopted from somebody else. Since they perceived His nature and His mission, Jesus proceeded to tell them how His Messiahship was to be fulfilled, in ways that must have startled the disciples and have chlalengec their faith. Many passages of Scrip- lure make it clear that they though' He was going to set up. an earthly kingdom; yet here He made it plain that He was to fulfill His mission through persecution and death. It is true that He spoke of the resurrection, but resurrection must have seemed a far-off thing in the disappointment of their immediate hopes And now a strange thing happen- Four-Faced, but Two-Legged Fay Helm boasts other at-: tributes besides those wheeeew! silk-clad supports.

From England, our army has learned that many of duties can be performed by women just as well, if not better, than by men. The Rep. Edin Nourse Rogers (Mas.) bill has bad some critics. But one thing that practically clinched 'the idea that women would come into the army was the insistence of Gen. George C. Marshall, chief of staff, "that I regard the passage of this bill at an early date as of considerable importance." Pointing out that congress had NOT failed to give the army practically everything it had asked for in recent months, the general continued: "There are at the present moment (women) volunteers being employed for critical phases of the aircraft warned.

CHAPTER XXXIII TVEXT day Parris had a call from Mrs. Skeffington— a per^ernp- tory invitation to tea. Parris bowed over the long skinny hands. "I'm awfully glad to see you." "Glad to see you, too. I hear you've been skinning the state out of a hundred thousand dollars." Parris sobered. "All right, all right. Spout your story. Did that fellow, Drake McHugh, actually have anything to do with this?" "Everything. I was in Europe." "So I heard. Smart. Didn't think Drake had that much gumption." "Well, his wife Randy—" "Fond of those two, aren't you?" "Yes." "Loyalty's scarce nowadays. Dying out, along with most everything else worth talking about." "I'll tell you about this real- estate business if you really want to know." "Of course I do. That's why I sent for you today." "Well, this really began when Drake's accident happened. Randy wrote me, or cabled me. . . ." When he came to the end she peered sharply through her gold- rimmed glasses. "I believe you." "Thanks." His tone was dry"Well, you needn't be persnickety about it. I doubt if anybody else will." "I don't think I care much." "I hope you don't. The Colonel —well, you know how the Colonel would have reacted to all this. What you.going to do about that dirty little newspaper?" "All that's happened between Drake and me is—well, not for Kings Row. He was kicked around, Mrs. Skeffington, you know that." "So you think Drake's really a pretty good fellow, do you?" "He's a very close and very dear friend. I love him more than anybody in the world, Mrs. Skeffington." "H'm. Want to bring—what's her name?" "Randy." "Want to bring her up to see me someday? I guess I'd better know your friends if you are going to have them." "I'll be delighted, and thank you." "Parris." "Yes, ma'am.' "Get out of this town." "Why?" "It'll never let you alone. It was a better town once." "Are you sure?" "Let me talk. A town can be the temporary camp of a tradition, of a good way of life. It can be an outpost for a long time. Sometimes the thing that made it live moves on—goes somewhere else. And a town like this—the way it is now—will go aftei you because you're better." "But, Mrs. Skeffington, Kings Row isn't really my principal concern. It's the hospital, my work there. The patients out at the end of Federal street are just as important as patients in Baltimore, or Boston, or Zurich, or Vienna. There are —I haven't said this even to myself—" "Go on." "There are plenty of specialists in my field in the important cities, and in the famous clinics. But I'm the only one here, at present. I believe I'm useful. I'm doing what I set out to do when I was a kid. It might as well be here. This is home." "I think you may be a fool." "Maybe. I told you what Herr Berdorff said when I suggested he take a professorship at Aberdeen and let his stupid little congregation go to thunder." "What did he say? I forgot." "He said: 'Parris! I am a preacher.'" "You're telling me the same thing, I see." "No, not really. You are kind to think of me. Colonel Skeffington was heavenly good to my grandmother. You're just like him. But the Colonel stayed on in Kings Row, too!" "He was tough. So am I." "Then I'll be tough." * * * T7VENTS and circumstances of the winter brought surprises to Parris. First of all he was surprised to discover that he cared what the people of Kings Row thought of him. For the sake of Drake and Randy he had to appear indifferent, but he did care. The second surprise came when he sensed that the town as a whole regarded him, for a supposed fleecing of the state, with a kind of respect. Kings Row also rediscovered Drake McHugh. He was, after all, the nephew of old Major Livingstone. Mrs. Sansome was heard to say that Mrs. McHugh was said to be really quite acceptable, Sarah, Skeffington clapped her hands together like a convert at a camp meeting when she talked to Parris about it. "King's Row respects just one thing: that's money. They say you're smart. It's just like cracking a whip at a pack of dogs. A hundred thousand dollars is something they can understand!" "I told you I didn't make that much money." Paris was bewildered. "Besides, I don't want to be respected for being a crook!" "What do you care, so long as you make .'em crawl? Parris, democracy is a fine thing, but it only operates among equals." Parris laughed. "I don't agree." "Ever here of noblesse oblige?" "Yes, and—" "You listen to me. Some of us practice such a thing because we know we're superior. It's based on a kind of contempt for people who need it!" "You don't believe a word you're saying." * * * CPRING came. A boisterous, shrewish, coltish kind of spring with rowdy winds and a damp, clinging cold. Parris walked often through it as the season broke, feeling changes within himself as timid as the sunshine, as hesitant as the unfolding of crinkled leaves. He walked hatless through the town, his brow very white, with fine lines across it, a few threads of gray in his tousled hair. He wore a mixed expression, as if mind and heart showed clearly separate there, the one cold and detached, the other shy and warm • —a look that turned inward. His walk one afternoon led past the schoolhouse and across the field that was his old way home— with Renee. He climbed the high wire fence—a new one running from the old rail fence at the end of the field—and walked up the slopes where maples were already shadowy with buds and leaves. The view spread out wide and clear before him. There, circled by the shining hand of the creek, the whole of it slanting in the sun, lay his old home. His feet had led him almost unconsciously to this place. There it was! And he had lived in dread of seeing it again! As he almost ran down the wide sloping fields toward the road he felt as if the whole spring day ran with him. He opened the small wicket at the high, ornamental wooden gates and walked slowly up the avenue toward the house. At the foot of the curving stone steps leading up to the terrace 'a wave of memory struck him—a thousand complex memories compounded in one instant.

We think perhaps of Jesus as having j mastered temptation, once for all, at | the outset of His ministry, but we forget that He was in all points tempted as we are, and we fail to realize the intensity of that temptation, to turn from the way of the Cross and renounce a mission that meant His own destruction. Yet, the triumph was found in the clear word of decision and faith, "Not my will but thini be done." It is in this connection that Jesus enunciates the great truth, that it i only in spending and giving life tha we can save it. This is a truth that although it may seem hard to understand, is thoroughly upheld in al of life. The farmer who saves all his grain will have no crop; it is only as he scatters it, and as the grair rots in the ground while the germ o life produces new life, that he can hope to have a harvest.
