Bushman, star- of the silent; screen, she h«d< been sent oltt to travel- with an aunt ,; "I'm supposed' to be in Davenport!" she laughedi "but. for. me, Davenport' meant: Denton," Her' "KolMay" last^ only, until Tuesday, and since Nancy, declares herself unfamiliar with the -script, she Is by no means sure what her next move will be. She smiled across the room at her mother. "While I'm here, though, I'm just going to rest andvvisit with you and daddy." When questioned a little, however, Miss Gates admitted that she had quite a bit of visiting planned. Her mother remarked that no matter what happened Nancy always tried to see all her old friends here to town. And. then, serious for a moment, Hollywood's- young star said quietly, "Of course, I do. Den-' ton is my home." Reminisce on School Days Later, she and Miss Jagoc began reconstructing bits from their nursery school days.

"You were all very healthy, normal girls," Mrs. Gates smiled Nancy and Jane looked a little embarrassed. "But fussy," she amended Miss Gates' plans for the future are very indefinite, since she will be unable to begin or really con- sJder a new movie until the radio work U over. "You can't tio both " she explained, "and right now I'm enjoying the serial.
