VENABLE Van Winkle in reverse, Albert E. Herpin maintains he has never slept a wink in his life—and he is 86 years old. He can't give a scientific explanation for it, but he believes an injury to his mother shortly before he was born might have caused the condition. He's known as Trenton's "sleepless wonder." No sleep doesn't mean that Herpin gets no rest. As he explains it he rests silling up in a chair while puffing intermittently on a pipe. His Henri's Affailist It "I can't shut my eyes more lhan a few minulcf,' at a lime without becoming nauseated," Herpin says, "and I can't lie down because it makes me feel like my heart will stop." Bald except for fringe of grey, Herpin is erect and alert for all his years. His wants are simple, tea and buns being Ihe chief diclary ilcms. Incredulous persons annoy Herpin. "Why should I try to deceive anyone?" he asked. "1 haven't got anything and I've never tried t o make anything out of my condition. I've had offers to appear in circuses and such, even had an offer to appear at the Chicago World's Fair, but always turned them down." One Piece Missing Herpin lives alone in a homemade hovel which he calls "The Nightmare." It is a conglomeration of fence sections, peach baskets, odd planks and what not. Occasionally pieces of furniture are slaclercd here and there but one traditional piece is mising: Life of the Legion Party He doesn't own a bed. Herpin has a favorite story.

Everybody seems to have thought of it first. Nearly every body claims lohave introduced it to America. When the Black Bottom, the Susi-Q the Big Apple and other terpsiehorean fads arrived he-re, there never was much argument aboul how they gol strted—• or by whmo. The Savoy Ballroom in Harlem claims credit for several and no detractors came forward to deny it; and various parls of the South went uncontesled for authorship of the others. But it's different with the Lambeth Walk. Though it was said to have been born in England last season, along came a horde of claimants who insisted thai the Lambeth Walk was seen in a New York musical comedy 25 years ago. A correspondent of ours in Pittsburg writes thai the Lambeth Walk first saw the day of light around j the Golden Triangle and a citizen of | Memphis, Tenn., has written in to tell us that the Lambeth Walk enjoyed its gcnsis in the deep south. Far be it from us to serve as arbiter in the matter. We hope the schism is over soon and the Lambeth Walk wends its weary way toward oblivion. We don't dance, anyway. Light of Heaven A friend of ours recently browsed amidst a science exhibit in Boston. One 20th century gadget particularly stuck his fancy and he writes us about it. Il is an attachment, he says, for a automobile dashboard, and it operates a little light hooked up to the accelerator. When the autoist is lolling along at 15 m.p.h., this bulb flachcs white, and at 20 m.p.h.. it turns to a pale green. Between 20 and 50 m.p h., it remains static in color. Bui lei Ihe man at the wheel step on the gas and breeze along at GO and this device will release a wedge in a tiny music box which will play out "Nearer My God lo Thee!" What's more our friend adds, this gadget is on view in a school of Theology. One of the Best Capsule Film Review: One of the best entertainments we've ever seen is "You Can't Take It With You" on the screen. Camera Hound The globe-troltingest director in Hollywood passed through Manhattan recently and in his luggage Tay Garnett bore several thousand feet of undeveloped film that will turn up sooner or later in talking pictures. A fool for a camera, Mr. Garnett; he is at a loss without one. When he left Hollywood earlier this year for an Extended trip, he planned to head cast. Bui suddenly he heard of oil Irouble in Mexico an hurried with his camera equipment in that direction. From there, he went to Martinque and photographed the port town and sailed to France. More pictures of local color. After that, it was a continental jaunt. Garnett went to Germany and Austria and I-hotoeraphed whalever was permissible and now he considers that he's had an ideal vacation. There is a busman's holiday for you.
