Hollywood By ROBBIN COONS Hollywood — Julicn Duvivicr is the man who makes four or five movies in one. It is a very tiring business, he says, and he is going to take a rest from It. His next movie will be just one movie. Duvivicr is a brightcycd, neat little Frenchman who drapes his words with gestures. He has thai old Gallic charm you read about, thai lively interest in things and people and good food and wines. He began his multiple - movie career with "Un Garnet de Bal" back in France. That told many stories, each stemming from a name on a young lady's dance program. When Hollywood got him, he was the first thought for the many- lalcd "Tales of Manhattan," and from there he wont on to the four- storied "For All We Know." This used to be called "Flesh and Fantasy," and its making sprang from Duvivior's association with Charles Boycr as a star of "Talcs." Boycr was eager to gel slarlcd as a producer, and Ihis was Iheir firsl choice. "For All We Know's "four laics all suggest more or less super-natural inflcunccs, dealing with "forces" that rule human lives. Duvivcr will tell you thai he is not superstitious—"Oh, not at all," —but he will also tell you, with gesture, "what I myself know in my own experience." He will tell you that he draws no conclusions, her merely wonders. Afterward, in is easy to understand why he would turn his camera to a story of mysterious forces: It began 10 years ago (he says) when an old friend of his, a charming, aged French actor named Camille Beuve, offered to cast Duvivier's horoscope. He returned with a sheet of paper detailing various events which would mark the director's coming year. "You put it in a drawer, and at year's end look at it again," said Bcuvc. Which Duvivier did. At year's ncl, he says, he was surprised to iscover thai its predictions had latcrializcd. Year after year, Camille Bcuve 'rote oul a Duvivicr forecast, and car after year the director hocked with increasing intcresl. 'here was one year when the old ctor predicted a "big sum of noncy" — it turned into a windfall f a million francs, from some for- ;ottcn stock.

By ROSEULEN CALLAHAN NEA Staff Writer New York.—You who plan late vacations may be looking over your summer wardrobes to see what clothes you'll be wanting lo lake along, and finding lhal by now last year's swim suit is just a litllc loo faded and oul of shape for such "special" wear as vacation. If so, you're just in time lo sclecl a suil from the latest styles delivered to the shops. And here are a few pointers which may help you to choose the right one. For those who have Ihc figure for it, there's nothing more flaller- ing lhan Ihe scanly-panly and draped bra duos, which fit like skin. One especially affective model uses yellow satin laslex for Ihe back and flower-sprinkled red calico for Ihe artfully shirred front of the panty and for Ihe beaulifully figure-forming bra. Girls with "spare tires" please ignore. Other attractive models of this scanty style utilize rayon sharkskin of floral print on back ground, trimmed with crystal buttons Rayon satin of plain colors is also mosl effeclive in this pattern, and shorts button cither down the side, or in back—Ihe lalter eliminates the hip bulge. But if you're figure isn't quite as perfect as you'd like, then con sidcr one of Ihc swirly-skirlcd, haller-nccked swim and sun suils of flowered calico with elasticized midriffs and low cut sun-back, or of crackling chintzes in multi- flowered pastel prints, which have a way of making you look positively sylphlike. Those who wear sizes larger lhan 38 will find that the clever styling of this year's dressmaker model.' hides a multitude of figure faulls. Take, for instance, the black-as ink pique dressmaker suit will row upon row of narrow, crisf white pique ruffles trimming 'ho slightly flared skirt. This ':; (r i jusl long enough lo cover 1oo-lhicl thighs, and is topped by ;i softly Mulheim Given Pounding by RAF Bombers London, June 23 — (yp) — Heavy RAF bombers blasted the German sleel and communications center of Mulheim in the Ruhr last night in a continuation of a mighty round-the-clock Allied aerial offensive, the British announced today. An air ministry communique said preliminary reports indicated the bombing was "well concentrated" and declared returning crews reported they had seen great fires still burning in Krefcld, main objective of a smashing RAF assault on the Rhineland the previous night, and at Huls, which was hit by U. S. Flying Fortresses in daylight yesterday. . RAF fighter planes simMltan- cously carried out intruder patrols over Holland and France, shooting down two enemy aircraft in the course of the operations, the bulletin haid. It reported 35 British bombers and one fighter had failed to return. ' Forty-four bombers were lost in the Monday night raid on Krefcld. Mulheim, one of the smaller towns in the Ruhr, was described as a satellite of the great industrial center of Duisburg, which is situated at the junction of the Rhine and the Ruhr. It is an important center of the German sleel industry as well as the site of large railway car and locomotive repair shops. It also is one of the principal outlets from the Ruhr to Southern Germany by rail. Mulheim has a normal peace time population of about 136,000. It was raided twice in 1940 but has not been attacked shice. A DNB report broadcast by Berlin and recorded by the Associated Press said Oberhausen had been hit as well as Mulheim. Oberhausen, located only a few miles from Mulheim, was attacked by the RAF the night of June 14. The German report said 24 of the raiding bombers were destroyed. As usual, the broadcast described the attack as "a terror raid," and acknowledged "heavy damage." The German communique said the populations of Oberhausen and Mulheim suffered "major casualties." The Canadian bomber command took part in the night's assault. The continuing offensive has carried explosives to German Europe in conveyer-belt fashion, the Mulheim raid marking the fourth night in a row the RAF has been over the continent, starting with Le Creusot, France, on Saturday night, following up with a 1,000- mile trip to the southern German Queens Kiss than = those now employed by the Allies. London had a brief alert during the night, Its 50th of the year. A few bombs destroyed 20 empty houses, which had been badly dam* aged in a raid last year and on which repairs had been completed only yesterday. The air ministry reported "slight" enemy activity also over parts of Southeast England where some damage and casualties resulted. The German high command said in a broadcast that a German Con* voy off Scheveningen, Holland, had repulsed a mass attack Tuesday ftcrnoon by a "strong" British air orce unit of bombers and torpedo ilancis, knocking down seven of the tlackcrs. This apparently was the same ction previously reported by the British. With handshake and kiss, Queen Elizabeth of England, left, greets Queen Marie of Yugoslavia at Red Cross garden feta in London.

THE CATCH CHAPTER XIX AFTER lunch tho four of us, ZA - Connie, Walter, Kathy and I, went out on the oast terrace. Wo were all jittery from nervous strain and it was with relief that wo saw long-legged Clint Mallison striding up from the woods. Kathy hailed him and he came up on the terrace grinning his attractive grin, Mattison remarked about the weather, said it was grand or something equally inane, and Kathy agreed with him with so much vivacity that I sat up and look notice. I watched her and Matlison and began lo conjeclure like a sentimental old busy-body. Matlison maneuvered the conversation around to fishing and reminded Kathy of her unfulfilled promise to go with him. He wanted to know if the following morning would be all right. Kathy said she couldn't, that we had a guest coining and she'd be tied up for a few days. I noticed that she didn't tell Mattison who it was. Lillle Judy came bouncing out on the terrace through the study door and ran up to Connie and hugged her tightly. Connie kissed her and asked her where Jack was. The cherub looked mysterious, and a worried frown cleaved Connie's white forehead. But Kathy laughed. She had glimpsed Jack and pointed him out to the rest of us. He had somehow escaped from Imogene Lake's vigilant eye and had had another try at Clint Mattison's fishing gear in the hall. Now dragging a rod behind him he was slipping stealthily from the back hall door toward the lily pool a1 the far end of the east lawn Kathy starled lo call out to hinv but Mattison stopped her. "Let him alone. He won't hurl the rod. Let's see what he does." From beginning to end of that affair Clint Mattison was ray jinx. J ACK know what to do all right. He perched himself on the edge of the pool, got Ihc slick back over lis shoulder as he had seen Wal- cr do, and then tried to fling it lorward over the water. Of course the line unreeled as the stick went forward, and Jack •hrew down the rod and began to pull Ihe line in by hand. Connie murmured worriedly something about the hook and catching it in lis fingers. Matlison aboul that. said he'd forgotten He started down the •itcps and across the lawn toward the pool. By the time he reached him Jack was pulling hard on the line. It must have been caught on something. Mattison picked up the rod from the ground, reeled in the line until it was laut, and with weaving motions untangled the hook from whatever was holding it. He started reeling in again and at last stooped over and picked something up from the shallow edge of the pool. Dropping the fishing stick he turned and came back to the ler- race. On Ihe flat of his palm he carried a gun. There was red rust at the end of its short blunt barrel and or the handle, and a shred of black clolh was caught between the hammer and the barrel. I stared at it and wondered if it was the one missing from mj desk in the turquoise room. I looked like it. But then all guns, look alike to me. Mattison said something abou the water and the rust having removed any possible fingerprints Gingerly he thumbed the catcl and swung Ihc cylinder out to one side, and slowly turned it around looking into the bullet chambers One bullet was missing. Kath was slanding beside me. I felt hei shiver. "We'll have to turn it over to the police," Mattison said slowly "It's probably the gun that killed Derek Grady," I" LIFTED my eyes from the gun •^ and looked back at the sun splashed pool whore Jack and Vlattison had found it. It's an artificial pool, part of the landscaping of shrubs and evergreens hat form a backdrop to the side awn and reach from the circle if tho driveway to the ravine some distance back of the spot where Derek's body was found. If the person who had shot Derek wanted to return to the louse without being seen, the most latural thing in the world would lave been to follow the ravine back to this line of shrubbery, and hen approach the back hall door using it for concealment just as Jack had done when he had been .rying to reach the pool without 3eing seen with the fishing stick. tt was as clear in my mind as if I were seeing it actually hap- ?cn. Tho murderer stealing back :o Ihe house—our house, passing within a few feet of the pool, .vhich is deep at the far end and filled with lily pads, and on the impulse of a moment throwing the gun into the water hoping that it would never be found. I made my decision. "There is one thing I think you ought to know before you hand that gun over to the police," I said, and my voice sounded hollow. "It is probably mine." I watched their faces. All I saw was incredulity and horror and sick shock. Mattison's head jerked up and he looked at me and I tried lo outstare Ihe probing suspicion in his eyes. "I had one," 1 explained carefully, "in my desk upstairs. And it's gone." Kathy was the first to recover the power of speech. Her hand was shaking as she took hold of my arm. "Gram—you don't know what you're saying. Who would! have taken your gun?" Against my will I found myself remembering how convincingly Kathy had lied to Shaw about not knowing Derek.
