Army quota for Hollywood By ROBBIN COONS Wide World features Writer Hollywood J — People are always stepping up to Robert Benchley and asking brightly. "Well, how do you like Hollywood?" They ask it. just as if Benchley. the writer who acts or vice versa, had just stepped from the train and were plunging his wit for the first time into this very, very funny place. They ask it, usually, as if he'd better say something funny and devaslaling about Hollywoo; right now or else. Benchley, who is genial and vague and ciuite sure of himself in a confused sort of way, is willing to be a good fellow but he never knows how lo answer. He hasn' learned Ihe secret of making "Oh. I like Hollywood fine" sound like a neatly turned quip. He will tell you, in deprecatin_ manner, thai people probably have him confused with some other writer — maybe Dorothy Parker Or maybe somebody who once made cracks at Hollywood. After all, he says, he has made a total of 24 Benchely shorts and people are always telling him the one they liked best. "The snoring one," they say "And I never made a snoring one," he says. "That was Bob Wildhack's" Far from being a newcomer to pictures, Robert has been commuting between New York and Holly- Heart Attack Proves Fatal to Mrs. West Mrs. Charles West, 72, died yes- .erday of an heart attack in a local lospital where she was receiving rcatment for injuries sustained Thursday when an automobile in which she was riding left the highway and struck a tree on West Third street, just inside the Hope city limits. The driver of the aulomoble, Louis Sansing, of armed service, also injured in the accident, is be- ng held by city and slate police on charges of driving without a license and driving while drunk. Mrs. West, a resident of Hempstead county for many years, lived on Red Lake, near Fulton, where she operated a boat landing. She is survived by two sisters. Funeral arrangements are incomplete. writing contract to cover expenses of the trip His next adventure in films came when Fox, after he had eluded them for a year, pinned him down to make a test talkie called "The Treasurer's Report," "I don't know why I diduJJ, wnnt to — either I just didn't want to., work or I didn't believe talkies were here to stay." he says. He had no regular contract, only a drawing account. The first day he went to draw, he timidly asked for 2,000 to get his family home from Europe. He was amazed to get it with no protest whatever "I had tasted blood now, and next time I asked for $5,000 —and got that too." This kept up for a delightful period of time, and "Report" was followed by five other shorts. Benchley had a wonderful time doing dialogue at Metro until Pete Smith needed a ,sleeper for "How to Sleep." Benchley was drafted, and now, what with one thing and another, he's a, regular actor as in "The Sky's the Lmiit," the Fred Astaire, Joan Leslie feature. Sometimes, in his more plaintive moments, Benchley wishes he could be a writer again. But you have got to have screen credits to be a "writer," and Benchely had always avoided writing credits. It was partly through honest shame and partly: "How could I go back to New York and pan shows when they could point the finger and say, 'Look who's talking'?"

Pat Friday had been growing. It was an unadmitted hope but a very real one; a hope that Jimmy Carr might think she was a woman to treat as a woman, a somebody to be loved, instead of a cute little-sister somebody to be teased. Not that she disliked the teasing—indeed she loved it! —but now she knew that teasing had been the sum of it all. "He gave you this!" she murmured, stupefied, to Loraine Stuart there in the Chicago hotel room. Loraine didn't answer. "Where did you—this order—" Pat wasn't coherent because her mind was whirling.. And yet, she could remember enough.- There had been two hours since she saw Jimmy. At the great Chicago airport where their sailplane landed, crowds had engulfed them. Reception committees had things in hand. Jimmy had technical aspects of the flight to see to, reports to make to Army officials and the like, while she acted more as front for the public to see. It was a part of their prearranged plan. And so it had been two hours since she left Jimmy at the air field. That was time enough for Loraine to have followed him and gotten the order. Of course. Loraine was originally scheduled to be Jimmy's passenger. Loraine was his fiancee. Of course. . . . Of course. "All right," Pat breathed now, whipped. "I'll go. I—thank you, Loraine. I'm sorry. . . . Sorry for everything. I mean—the flight. It shouldn't have been mixed up this way, for Jimmy's sake and— and yours. . . . I—good luck, Lo- raiue. I'll go now." She held on to the Army order, signed by Capt. James Carr himself. It ordered her back to El- mira immediately, In the same plane that had brought Loraine luck, Loraine," not seeing her. west. "Good—good Pat repeated, "Take good care of Jimmy. Take good care of him." She was out of the door again, and all at once the fatigue returned to her, engulfed her, left that horrible sensation of loneliness intensified. She, Pat Friday, had no parents, no relatives except a beloved brother on an airplane carrier somewhere near Australia. And except for Jimmy Carr, she really hadn't made any friends lately, either. Life had been too rushed, duties too stern. And she had had only four hours' sleep in 36 hours of strain and hurry. She managed to get a taxi without further recognition. The reception committee that brought her had dispersed. In the taxi, going toward the airport again, she wished she might at least see Jimmy. She wanted to tell him it %yas all right. Everything was all right, even if he—if he did feel it necessary to demote her, in effect. Even if he didn't quite have the—well, the nerve, or something—to tell her face to face. Perhaps he wanted to spare her any embarrassment. . . . Sure, that's it. Jimmy wouldn't want to hurt anybody. Better just send a signed Army order, formal and all. He—he couldn't—couldn't have known that Loraine—would put on a crazy act with a gun. * * * JUSTIFYING Jimmy Carr, she " was almost in tears. It would be good to fly again. She hoped the pilot was all ready and waiting. They would be back in Elmira before too long. Maybe she could sleep a little en route, then go to bed and forget the whole thing. But no. No, she would never really forget this experience. Not if she lived a billion .years. .The airplane pilot turned out to be homely, friendly Ed Bryan, who had often towed Patsy in a sailplane, "This is a heck of a note, Miss Friday," Ed drawled his speech. "You reckon everything's okay?" That surprised Pat a little. "Surely, Ed," she said. "It's all right." She tried, weakly, to be facetious about it. "C'est la guerre." "I guess so. But-^t wasn't all just regular. I'm talking abqut my scootin' over here with that Stuart dame, and such." "What do you mean, Ed? Regular?" ;»;,. "Well, I tell you. If T hadn't known she and the captain was engaged—you see, the order came to me by relayed telephone, there in Elmira. She brought it to me. She said we had to hurry. She's on the field herself, you know; and they're engaged." "Yes, of course, Ed." "And when we landed here, she disappeared and said she was going right over to get the order signed and official. But I haven't seen her again." "Oh. I see. Well, it's okay, Ed. , Sure is too bad to run you around the country this way, just hauling girls. I could have gone back on. the bus or train, seems to me, too. But, Ed, here's the signed order. Miss Stuart gave it to me." "Well—well, all right, then. If you're ready, we better head back for home." They took off easily. And the night flight eastward to Elmira again was uneventful. But all the while, Ed Bryan was thinking", worrying. When they had landed, both dead tired now, he asked Pat to let him see that signed order. When he had read it through he studied it even more in detail, standing there near the hangar with Pat. "I'll see you to your home because it's so late, Miss Pat," he said, "but first—did Captain Carr tell you he aimed to do this?" "No. No, he didn't. But I'm sure—" "He never told you he aimed to put Miss Stuart in your place? Looks like he would have mentioned it, or left some word." Pat stood up for Jimmy. "He took oil' in a terrible hurry, Ed. Miss Stuart was unavoidably delayed back at Elmira, and there had to be a woman passenger to save embarrassment all around. Don't you see?" The pilot didn't answer at once. He had opened his flying jacket and taken another Army order out. Under the light there on the landing field, he studied first one paper then the other. "I ain't right bright, Miss Pat, but you know I'm yours and Captain Carr's friend, and—well, to tell you the truth, I used to be a policeman. Detective bureau work, a little, down in Atlanta, Ga." "But, Ed—what—?" Pat was astonished. "I got another Army paper here that Captain Carr signed. About something else. But I saw him. sign that one. And it ain't the same writing that the other one is. Miss Pat, this order Miss Stuart gave you is forged!" > (To Be Continued) One Week- ON STAGE •Beginning Sun., March 14th World Famous Mystic 1 • • * i ...
