THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE, SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 29, 1936. ^Romance Preferred By MARGARET GORMAN NICHOLS .Synopsis of Preceding Instalments Arlen Leeds, 21, leaves her Ruxton. Md., home after her father's marriage to a pretty gold-digger bnly three years her senior. What jncenses Arlen most is knowing her stepmother, Karen, is spending the money her infatuated father inherited from her mother. Arlen drives to Ocean City to ''cool off" after a scene when Karen appears wearing her mother's pearls. There she meets tall, handsome Renny • Maynard, a lawyer. Arlen is piqued that he treats her in a frank, almost brotherly manner, but it invites her confidence. When she tells him of her father's foolish marriage and conditions at home, he suggests that he write to his sister, Louise, In New York,'wife of Richard Brandon, who is always getting her engagements and accounts muddled. Renny says she needs a social secretary. Louise replies enthusiastically, saying she will pay Arlen $35 a week and adding that one of her duties will be attending her parties. "Tell Miss Leeds about Toby Sanner," Renny reads to Arlen from Louise's letter, "I think she'll like him. Christa..." When he stops reading, his voice falling flat, she thinks she now understands Renny •—he loves Christa, who is unworthy of him. At the Brandon penthouse she meets Toby, her frank admirer, and Fanny, his mother, who dresses far too young for her years. The beautiful Louise is friendly and gracious. Arlen likes Eiissa Brand and hopes they will be friends. INSTALMENT 8 "Shall we say," said Arlen, "that 1n the daytime I'm your secretary and in the evening your guest?" "Why—yes. But don't work too hard, so that you can't enjoy your evenings." "I won't. Do you object if I go to a business school for a few hours In the morning? I think I should know some of the technical points Of being a secretary and I'd feel better about taking my salary. I ca7i do all your work in.the afternoons." "Business school," queried Louise, arching a narrow black brow. "Oh, one of those places where one learns stenography, isn't It? Of course, by all means go, Richard will be happy to pay for it for you." Arlen protested, but Louise waved away her protestations with an Impressive hand. "I won't hear of your paying out of the pittance I'm giving you! Richard will attend to everything." Shn walked to the door, her negligee skimm-ing the rug. "I am going out to play bridge with Fanny." Arlen smiled. "But Miss Brand is coming for tea this alternooV "Oh, Eiissa. You entertain her, dear. Eiissa comes to tea whether I'm here or not. She'll forgive me, but Fanny never forgives anybody." Through the short sunny afternoon Arlen worked in Richard's study reading letters from Louise's friends, smiling at language as exaggerated as hers. What Louise paid for one frock had almost clothed Arlen for a year. The amounts she paid to manicurists, hairdressers and chiropodists were staggering. Longs for Freedom After luncheon, during which the servants stared at her as though she were an unwanted intruder, Arlen went out on the roof and lifted her arms to the sun. Arlen prayed for freedom, knowing that no one in love is ever free. Standing there, a slim little figure with blowing yellow hair, she prayed that Renny be brought back to her, loving her. "Let me be only a bystander in the lives of Richard and Louise, Fanny and Toby. Don't let these people take from me what I have tried so hard to keep—my pretty illusions, Renny calls them bitterly." She went back to the study again and worked until 4, when the door opened and Eiissa Brand came in. Public Life Begins at Home for Five Congresswomen VIRGINIA JENCKES (Indiana) NAN HONEYMAN (Oregon) "I hope I'm not disturbing you," said Eiissa. "I was jus!, finishing." She felt that she iiad always known Eiissa. After Louise's ca- piices, her exaggerations and petty storms of temperament, Eiissa was a serene, balanced person. Not over 23, she more nearly spoke Arlen's language, and Arlen guessed, by the simplicity and inexpensiveness of her clothes, that good breeding rather than wealth entitled her to a place in this amazing upper world. Eiissa pulled off her white gloves and drew up a chair near the desk. "Louise is out," said Arlen, "Naturally. My saying that I'm coming means nothing to her if she has something better to do. How is the job going?" "Not bad really—when I get it straightened ou,t. I'm going to business school. Stenography," she said, smiling, "is something every secretary should know." Eiissa offered cigarebs. "It's something every poor relation should know. I'm a poor relations. Did you know that?" she asked quite gayly. "I'm Louise's cousin. I live with my uncle and aunt." "When I meet new people," said Arlen, "my imagination immediately makes up stories about them." "Which aren't far wrong, I'll MARY T. NORTON (New Jersey) CAROLINE O'DAY (New York) EDITH N. ROGERS (Massachusetts) wager," said Eiissa. "You know that Fanny is scheming and selfish, that Toby is the last word as a lover and that Henry Fauat is the proper escort for a poor relation. Let's go in the drawing room and have some tea." As Arlen passed a cup of tea to Eiissa she said, "I suppose they're wondering about me, too, and thinking the worst. My being here is dramatic and unusual. When Renny suggested it to me I was so desperate 1 could have done anything. I had run away then." Elissa's brown eyes were warm and friendly. "You were lucky to fall into such masterly hands. Nobody but Fanny resented you. She's a. snob and she hates to have Toby meet a new pretty girl. She knows she has to go through all the old scenes again. Fanny is one of those impossible mothers who thinks they are keeping youthful by being their son's pal, If Toby ever marries, it will be the death of her. She could not share him with any woman." She sipped her tea thoughtfully and took a dainty cake. "Now you know all about them, Arlen. They're selfish. They're all right and good fun if you don't get too involved. One would think that Louise would take Allison since she'll probably never have any children of her own." "Who is Allison?" Arleu asked imply. 'My dear, she's Renny's daughter. Didn't you know?" The large white room seemed to lose in on Arlen then. Her hand rembled. She felt as if struck. She owered her eyes quickly, pulling a olite veil over them. His daughter! ",enny—married! No, it couldn't be! "Is Christa—his wife?" she asked n a voice so far away it could not e hers. *r~i n~> \ \ \ X \ \ "\ V\ • \ ^*^*' f "cs *~\-V <V X ' Ai **a ! - •' t.. Hrv.

News of Neighborhood House Thanksgiving was joyfully celebrated by the children of the day nursery Wednesday at noon. Forty children enjoyed the regular turkey dinner. The kindergarten children made the decorations for the party and Mrs. F. C. Schramm of the board of trustees carved the turkey.

Miss Enid Squires, their leader, and Mis: Freida Johnson, president of thi club, aided in the games for th evening. On Wednesday afternoon, No vember 25, a tap dancing class for colored girls was begun. Ten girls came to the first class, which was under the direction of a staff member of the city recreation department. a Democrat. Mrs. Rogers will be the woman Republican in the house ihis year. That alone establishes tier political strength, in a year when many of her male Republican colleagues went down to defeat. Representative Jenckes, a widow of ten years and a Democrat, first rose to prominence by her heroic call to neighboring farmers one night when the Wabash river was ruining crops in her county. She sent for food, lights, sandbags, and personally directed the building of a dike. Naturally, her main interest in Washington has been flood control. Mrs. O'Day, another Democrat, for years has been a member of Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt's group seeking homes for working girls, employment for the poor, day nurseries and better housing. She is a widow whose range of interests runs from the theater to immigrants. Her slim figure is usually somberly dressed in black, relieved by a string of large pearls. Only Newcomer Mrs. Honeyman, Democrat, is the one newcomer to the feminine bloc in the house. She met "the Roose- velts at a wedding party when they were all members of New York's young silver spoon set. She is married to a "Roosevelt Republican" business man, as she calls him, and is the mother of two children. She has thick white hair, a youthful full face, a. soft voice and a ready smile. Her first appearance in national politics was last June, when she attended the Democratic convention as a national committeewoman, one 'of the small group of women who had their manicured fingertips in the writing of the platform. Old Symphony Brought To Light, Being Played (Continued from Page Twelve) piqued the curiosity of Casella, who had been intensely interested in earning recognition for Clementi as a great symphonist. Ten years passed before Casella finally crossed the ocean to begin serious study of the scores. Putting them together was similar to reassembling several jig-saw puzzles at once. Nevertheless, hard work yielded four symphonies last year, although in each the first movement was incomplete. Recalling the two manuscripts held in the British museum, Casella went to London, armed with photo- static copies of the Washington library scores. Careful work restored all four, and two were performed and published last year. The first, third and fourth required some slight filling in by Casella, but the second, which will be performed Friday, was complete, and received its first performance under Casella in Rome last January. Dr. Koussevitzky first learned of the scores from Casella, and after studying them minutely the last few weeks, described the music as possessing "great charm and brilliance." Plans in Formation For Biennial Meeting The Little theater group of the Neighborhood House has been busily rehearsing three evenings a week for its first dramatic presentation Monday, December 1. Three one-act plays will be the features of that evening, as well as several music numbers. The executive committee of the El Trovodor club, a group of young Mexican people, held its first meeting Monday evening. Plans were made for an opening party on Fri- Jduy, NEW YORK, N. Y.—Mrs. John Alexander Jardine of Fargo, N. D., president of the National Federation of Music Clubs, returned recently from a trip to Washington, announcing that the National Symphony Orchestra, Hans Kindler, conductor, has been engaged to play three concerts at the Twentieth Biennial convention and American Music Festival of the federation, to be held in Louisville, Ky., April 23 to 29. Final arrangements for the Louisville appearances were made during her Washington stay. One of the orchestra's most important offerings at Louisville .will be a new symphonic composition by John Powell, which will be given its first presentation there. Based on Anglo-American folk tunes, it was written by Mr. Powell on commission from the federation, as an integral part of the organization's effort to promote the works of American composers and encourage the production of distinctive American music. Other noteworthy works of American composers will have a prominent place on the three programs presented at Louisville by the distinguished group of 80 musicians which has been making musical history not only in the national capital, but in the larger cities of the South and East, since it was founded by Hans Kindler five years ago However, the Louisville programs will not be of the all-American order, but will include selections from foreign composers as well, chosen with a second of the federation's objectives in mind, that of fostering international good will through a better understanding of the music of other nations. The Twentieth Biennial convention nnd American Music Festival will give the National Symphony Orchestra one of the largest and most cosmopolitan audiences before which it has yet played, as its annual tours have been restrict- to southern and eastern cities, while the Louisville audiences will come from all sections of the United tates.

Give Something If Only a Smile In 48 hours, December, that hoary old graybeard, will have arrived, the -Twelfth and last recorder of that period of time called a year, and in a few days he will lay down his scepter and abdi- date his throne to the New Year Cupid, and man will look back and wonder if he has used time and opportunity to the best purpose for the advancement to a higher standard of the social, moral and economic state of his -family and himself. Every year builds up our experience, and the marker from which the chuckling old December takes his leave into oblivion and from which Cupid starts at scratch, should be accepted by all of us as a stop and go sign, stop ' and carefully check up our mental and physical equipment, and, if found sound, go ahead to better our station in life and the community in which we live. And. In. December comes Christmas, that day that for nearly twenty centuries has been celebrated with reverence around the world, the one day of all the year when no one should find an excuse for not giving /something to someone, if only a smile. I am writing this on Thanksgiving day, the anniversary of a day over forty years ago when I received e telegram -that a job awaited me in Butte, Montana. I arrived there on December 6, a day of bitter cold, when the city was shrouded in a blanket of smelter smoke, and as the days went by homesickness became almost a p h y sical breakdown. Christmas came and with it packages from family and friends, and while I cannot recall a single item 1 received, outstanding in memory is the thrill that came to me in that hour of discouragement because someone from back along the trail sent greetings. Perhaps you may know someone way off somewhere, alone, who might on Christmas eve be staring with unseeing eyes into the dying embers of his cabin fire, to whom you could bring cheer if only through the medium of a Christmas card, and while there are now but few isolated places, there are many isolated people, who in their despondency expect nothing, but whose faces would become radiant with hope if someone assured them that someone did care.
