Hollywood By ROBBIN COONS Hollywood — Miss Gracie Fields, who likes to be "playin' houses," is busy again "playin' actors an' actresses." When Gracie says she's "playin' houses," she means she's keeping house. When Gracis "plays actors an' actresses," it mentis she's working at the profession in which she rose from obscurity to become England's most popular entertainer and highest - paid actress. Gracie is playin' at both games now, keeping big house for husband Monty Banks, and keeping a real - life house for cinema husband Monty Woolley, tho Beard. Tho picture is "Holy Matrimony." "I'm just a housewife at heart," says Gracie, "and after this picture all you men will be taking your wives to sec what a perfect housewife Gracie Filds is. In fact.

Gracie Fields is a big, breezy blonde, full of more push, and vitality than a dozen glamour - dolls could muster for an extra - special clam - bake. On her tours for British war relief she used to keep working, delivering the palter and the songs, long after you expected her to drop from exhaustion. She'd havo made a super-duper cheerleader for some American college, and that's what she's like now on her air show, her camp and bond work. She did camp and factory tours in England in 1940, and expects to return for mbrc this June. It has taken seven years for Gracio to find' a movie story to make in Hollywood — seven years since 20th Century - Fox brought her over to launch an American career. They had a nice luncheon for Gracie then, with orchids and thick juicy steaks, ah!, and everybody was happy and so was Gracie. Whi'ch was tho end, practically speaking, of that.

AT GUN POINT CHAPTER XIII CITE lay there tense, her heart ^ suddenly throbbing, her breath caught in anxiety. She sensed that Brit's body was tense, too. Then she noticed that his muscles relaxed. Brit rolled ovor on his back, with a tremendous effort. "Hello," he said to the Japanese, who stood in the compartment doorway. "Where are you taking us?" "Wouldn't you like to know," the Japanese said, in excellent English. "I'll bet you've lived in America," Brit replied. "I'll bet I have, too." "You're a naval ollicer?" "Oh, yes. Usually I fly belter planes than this." "How long have you been a naval officer?" Brit asked. "I joined the reserves before 1 was sent to live in the Unitec States," the Japanese answered. "Same old story, eh?" Brit said "Well, you certainly took us in.' The Japanese laughed. "In more ways than one," ho said. "I hope you are resting uncomfortably Goodby." "I am, thank you, and you can go to the devil," Brit replied. The compartment door closed The moment it had been shut, Bri rolled back over on his side. I was all the signal Beth needed In another few seconds she ha completed her job. * * * "DRIT freed her. Now they sa •*~^ up, rubbed their wrists to re store circulation, and conversed ii whispers.

I don't know low far the Jap base is from the sland, but we can't take any risks. ?his piano carries a radio, and I uspect it uses a wave length that J. S. Army receivers wouldn't normally pick up. You know, it's lot only our necks that are at stake—it's the whole blooming jlan, and the lives of everyone jack at tho island and of lots of other fellows all over the world.' He paused. "How are we going to fight?" "I thought," Beth said, "that if we knocked on tho compartment one of the folks up front woulc come and open it. Maybe we'd better kick on the door, so they won't suspect our hands are free Then wo could entice one of them back here." "Yes,-I follow you." "Then, Brit, we could go out close the door, and just have two to fight out there. One of then would be piloting the plane— I doubt if they'd let the ship go down, just for the fun of it—so there might only be one." "Keep right on." "If the one who answered the knock was the Japanese naval ofiicer, then Rick Moth is piloting the plane—unless Lita flies. Does "I don't think so. At any rate, she wouldn't be, in this situation. My guess is that the Jap handles the controls except for short intervals. However, Rick represented himself as an able flyer." "It Lita came back—" Brit speculated silently, as she apsed into silence. "Whoever comes back, we've got o dish out some immediate and effective treatment, no matter how •ough," Brit said. We can't start any sooner than •ight now," Beth said. They crouched by the small ompartment door. "I'll go out first and you follow me," Brit said. )!•• * * TJRIT kicked on the door. There -* was no reply. He kicked harder. There still was no reply. He kicked viciously. Was their plan to fail simply through refusal of one of the three up front to pay any attention to them? They heard steps, and the lock on the door turned. Beth and Brit were ready. The door swung wide, and they looked up into Lita Danton's face. Lita screamed, but not before she had been jerked through the door and thrown to the rear of the small compartment. Brit went out the door. For a second Beth hesitated, wondering whether it would not be better to tie Lita while she was helpless. The door obviously locked from the outside, Bpth reasoned. Therefore she would be able to lock it behind her. Besides, Brit might need her out in the cabin. Beth went through the door, too. The plane was in bumpy air again, and her footing was unsteady. She slipped, regained her balance, slipped again, then steadied herself. Her fingers reached for the lock. She closed the door and threw the bolt. Brit was struggling with Rick Moth. The Japanese was at the controls. He had drawn a pistol, and searched for an opening for a shot. Brit and Rick battled fiercely, then they lost their balance and went clown. Beth found herself looking across a cabin which was clear above knee height. And across that cabin was a grinning Japanese, leveling a pistol at her as he turned in the pilot's seat.' (To Be Continued) night at the ferry terminal of San Giovanni, on the toe of the Italian boot. The Allied bomb shower on Pan- tolleria, which lies in the center of the Sicilian channel, followed a well-laid pattern. The fighters and bombers carried out their assignments with a precision that left waste and wreckage in their wake. Highlights of the island's day: (1) P-40 Warhawks attacked coastal gun emplacements. (2) B-25 Mitchells dumped their loads of explosives on the docks with an accuracy officially described as excellent. Bombs hit a medium - sized supply ship and four small craft, one of which exploded. Warehouses on the south side of the harbor were set afire. (3) B-26 Marauders and bomb- carrying Warhawks struck at the air field, destroying buildings, pitting the dispersal area and scoring hits on both sides of the bviouac area. (4) The RAF's two-engined Wel- lingtons took up the work in the star - studded night, dropping two- ton demolition bombs and sore lighter explosives on the air field and installation of .the harbor area, starting a large fire. The Lightning raid on Sardinia was carried out by three separate formations which spread have with bombs and cannon fire. A 200 - foot coaster was hit by one bomb and three smaller boats were sunk at Carloforte harbor, at the south corner of the island. Other bombs landed in the dock area. Two islands bounding Carloforte harbor were attacked. After sprinkling their bombs in the harbor area, Lightnings shot up a factory building on Piana island and barracks, a gun emplacement and radio office of San Pietro island, on which the town of Carloforte is situated. A number of bombs landed among buildings in the center of the target area when the Lightn- ings raided an important zinc works at Iglesias, on Sardinia 18 miles northeast of Carloforte. action flared -again in- the Sevsk area near the important Russian base of Kursk early today, where 44 German planes wore shot down Saturday when the region was attacked by a large formation of fighters and bombers. Two battalions of German infantry were dispersed and partly annihilated by' artillery' fire after Soviet scouts had ' rioted heavy troops movements northeast o! Kursk, the midday communique o: the Soviet Information Bureau said. Four more Nazi planes also were reported downed. (Berlin radio reports heai'd in London have indicated the Ger mans expect a heavy Russian as sault to be launched on Orel from Kursk.) Slight overnight improvements In Russian positions in the Kuban area north of Novorossisk and at Lisichansk on the Donets river were reported in front line dispatches.. Artillery action .in the Kuban was the first mentioned there since Saturday. ' The great aerial warfare and assaults on supplies and communications, continued with 313 planes bagged during the week past a cost of 61 Russian aircraft, the midnight communique said. The Germans continued rushing reinforcements to the front in virtually every sector, piling more guns, men and tanks into areas where the long - expected summer blows may fall at any time. Scouting, a possible prelude to heavy land action was reported in the Kuban, the Sesk area, and in the Smolensk area of the western front. The reconnaissance units destroyed supply dumps, equipment, pillboxes and block houses, and took prisoners and supplies,, the noon' communique said.
