Hollywood By ROBBIN COONS Hollywood—That fantastic magazine called Lion's Roar has made another of its semi-occasional appearances, and must when I hought I was getting used to this slickest of slicks, It comes up with an edition thai sends me reeling back into my wheel chair. After breaking open the box in which this snob of the magazine world is shipped, I am confronted with a neatly printed seal which advises that the issue sets a new record for size, which certainly is no exaggeration, and sets, also 'a new record for 'big news." Deeply indebted to Melro-Goldwyn- Mayor for being on their new list for Ihis shinning publication, I will not quarrel with thai. Be""advised lhat Lion's Roar is sort of a twin of that other class magazine, Fortune. The cover design is quile sirrnlar, excepl lhal wher Forlune usually goes in for heroic locomotives or ships, Lion's Roar this month favors vis with a lovely pink and gold chorine who manages lo be two-thirds exposed although she is wearing a costume hat sweeps the floor and a bonnel hal sweeps Ihe ceiling.

I did think that, for a few seconds." He stopped as another bump rolled them apart, then back together. "I should have taken into account the possibility that they'd have someone else with them. It's such an obvious thing—a Japanese who can fly a plane, and who comes along to make certain the international double-crossers don't redouble-cross—that I just didn't think of it." "What will they do with us?" Beth asked. "Take us to some Japanese base," Brit replied. ''There's probably one within a few hours' flight." pear to be a Jap ship, and it wouldn't look like a military ship. I got taken in, I'm afraid." "You did not," Beth defended. 'You acted just as an officer should act. You did everything that it appeared in your best judgment should be done. He smiled. "Thanks for the encouragement. It helps ... a little. The thing now is to figure a way to get out of tills mess." "We'll be missed." *>' "In the morning," he countered, "Besides, what good will that do? There isn't a plane on the island. . . . They were to come later. Even if there were, would it help the situation any for one to follow us? That would only throw more lives after ours." They lurched apart as the old plane took a particularly violent roll. When they rolled back together, they had been shaken around considerably. Beth's arms were bruised—her bonds did not allow her to brace herself, and she rolled at the will of the elements. The lurch had turned Brit so that he no longer faced her. She was looking into the middle of his back. Her eyes saw the way the bonds pulled his wrists tightly together. The plane lurched again. The bump was another hard one. Beth was thrown against Brit, and she thought for a moment her teeth Brit insisted. "What was it?" Beth lowered her voice until it was hardly audible. "Brit," she said, "can you hear me?" "Yes, why?" he replied. "Then start talking to me . . . about anything. I have a plan. Only . . . keep talking." He was silent a moment. Then he humored her. "You know, I never wanted to call you Lieutenant from the first moment I saw you, Beth," he said. "I wanted to call you by your first name." , He paused. "Keep talking," Beth said. "It's nice to take orders from you," Brit said. "You know, I like you ..." She rolled deliberately as close as she could. She tried with a superhuman effort to brace herself so that the bumpiness of the ride would not interfere with what she intended to do. * * * T>RIT JACKSON felt a tug on the cord that held his wrists. He almost mentioned it. Then the whole plan registered on his brain, 'If Ideals Evaporate . wil be the topic of the sermon at the 8 o'clock service Sunday evening.

The kind of malerail you would lake to be advertising, and the kind you would take for, news, seem to be combined in a breathless, ecstatis form of writing and display thai the Roar undoubtedly would like to see more of. I mean, the magazine probably would be a very fine model, from a Hollywood standpoint, for hard- nosed newspapermen to follow in telling the expectent public all about the wonderful surprises their neighborhood movie house has in store for them. I riever could figure out what the Roar's purpose is. They tell me that it is .to give exhibitors and editors ideas.

"Nothing." The idea that had come into Beth's mind was so bold that she dared not utter it aloud. ".You started, tq say something,", loo. He held as steady as he could, and tried to extend his arms backward. Beth grasped the cord between her teeth, and worked along it until she got to the knot. She could not see, and though her teeth told her in general the con- formalioii of the knot, she found it difficult to find any looped portion of the cord that she could pull free. Finally she grasped one of the loops. She held onto it tightly, and worked it a fraction of an inch loose. The man who tied that knot was the Japanese, and she had to admit that he knew his cordage. Now she was making progress. One more tug and the knot would be untied. Just as Beth was about to take another grip on the cord with her teeth and make that tug, she heard the corouarU ment door being opened. HOPE GOSPEL TABERNACLE North Main and Ave. D Paul R.
