Communistic Mr. DcMille . Surpassing the tinderslanduig of ordinary men are Uic machinations of the Gentian Propaganda Ministry, which now bars from Germany Cecil B. DcMillc'.s western movie, "The Plainsman," fomc of Ilerr Gochbcls' huls .siisjjoc'l Mr. DcMillo of coiifpiriiiif, consorting, ami plotting with the Soviels. It seems that back in December of 1935 Jk-. DcMille sent to Boris Shu- miatsky, then head of the Soviot film industry, this cryptic message, "Season's Greetings." This was in responses to the equally sinister cable from Shti- miatsky, "Merry Christmas." So the Nazi sleuths have decide:!" lliat they must keep an, eye on this fellow DcMille. Shumiatsky, like a good many otheivKussuins who were on the top side a short time back, has been "li<i\mlutcd." Bht DeMillc, the Nazis suspect, is still busy at his communistic plottings. It is all too funny, of course, to got sore about. But Mr. DcMille may not he pleased at the implications. He is a pillar in thai extremely radical, revolutionary., and very left-wing political party known in the* United States us the G. 0. P. v . ' Cry Baby One of the most childish things Ku- rope's problem hoy has attempted is his plan to get the newspapers of other nations to stop saying mean things about him. Denouncing "journalistic , panic mongering" as one of the greatest threats to world pence, Hen- Hitler asks inclusion of so-called non-aggression press pacts in any approacl^ to a settlement of Europe's problems. In plainer words, the Great Man can't take it. There exists what the boys refer to as "a sneaking suspicion" that Dor Fuehrer has the press of (he United States particularly in mind. The difficulty in that case is of course that the U. S. government can't put the silencer on the American press as the government is able to do in Germany. And the greater difficulty In lliat thn American people'don't want their TO v- ernment'ever to get in a position wKcre it can do so. Hen- letter's idea is pretty ridiculous, but ho has Ihc- habit of getting ridiculous things done. Since the Reich already has concluded non-aggression press pacts with Italy, Poland and Hungary and is attempting to negotiate one with France, it is perhaps not too soot) to start carping about Herr Hitler's complaint that he is being criticized. 'TUESDAY, MARCH 22, 193* "Whoopee. S SIDE GLANCES By George Clark The Cleveland police now have what they call a "Whoopee Squad" — and it really is doing some mighty line work in ciittin gdown the number of auto deaths in lliat city, traffic fatalities for the first part of 1038 being only about half the number for the same period in IOT7. ' Organised during the Christmas holidays and operatiiiji; mainly on weekends, the "Whoopee Squad"' maku.s a special effort to arrest drinking drivers for minor traffic violations before the tipsy atitoists get into more se-* rion.s trouble. On a recent Vcelc-fliul the siitiad picked up 107 traffic law vto"- lators, with an additional 77 arrests being made by the regular police squads. That week-end there were only JO cur accidents involving injury to persons, and 33 in which' property damage was reported. Tliere were no fatalities. The "Whoopee Squad" is working out pretty well in Cleveland— and there's no apparent reason why the idea wouldn't be a good one for other cities. Ducks vs. Airplanes There is something rather appealing about the statement by Warren K. 1C in ley of the U. S. Bureau of Standards' (hat one of the things worrying the bill-can is the fact that ducks refuse to be intimidated by airplanes ami thus create u major problem for iwisi- tion. It seems that the ducks, which ;,ftef all have been traveling through the air a goo* bit longer than the man-made planes, show little regard ,for air traffic regulations and cosifiiuie <scvcncl/ on their way—even it''they fly right -through a plane's windshield. The result is bad not only for the duck but also for trie plane and its pilot. The worst offenders among the ducks arc Canadian bonkers.

CHAPTER XI 1?LSA O'DARE was sitting at her t • desk when Constance went in. "You wanted me, Miss O'Dare?" Constance asked, uneasy without exactly knowing why. Elsa O'Dare laid down Ihe PBIKTS she was sorting, folded slim, perfectly groomed hands on the desk top, and looked up thoughtfully. "I'm given lo understand," she said, "thai you allowed a gentleman who came here with one of our customers to drive you home last night." "Why, yes," Conslance said, wondering. "Yes, I did. His mother was kind enough (o suggest it.". "I ani not questioning the personal propriety n} your- doing so." There was in Elsa O'Dar^'s fainl smile something puzzling • that Constance was to icmember later. "But there happens to be a rule in tho store that none of our em- ployes shall accept attentions from the male relatives or—ah, appendages—of our customers. It is, I believe, much resented—but there it is." "I don't resent il," Constance said, flushing. "1 simply didn't know anything about il." She thought, Why didn't Miss Letts warn me? "Well—" Elsa O'Dare raised her shoulders in a little- shrug. "You know now. . . . You have been duly admonished. Don't do il again. Thai is all, I think." J>AUL1NE was loitering in the corridor when Constance went out. She shot a fuvtive, probing look from under her lashes at Constance's unlrouhlcd face, and as if dissatisfied with what she saw there, bit her lip and turned away. But Constance was not so untroubled as she seemed. She was beginning to realize thai at leasl two of the women here—Pauline and her ally, Miss Letts—disliked her enough lo want to see her humiliated. And Conslance had never before known an open enemy. There was another letter from Derek for her when she went home that night. "Miss Thorvald and I went for a long horseback ride yesterday," Derek wrote, "Perhaps I should tell you that the Baron has placed a beautiful mount at my disposal. Miss Thorvald is magnificent on horseback—much as poets and artists like to think Joan of Arc must have been, She needs only a battle standard to make a really heroic figure. "In a day or so I hope I shall feel well enough acquainted with her to tell her of our engagement. I shall have to be careful. She is so kind .that it would make her frightfully uncomfortable to realize what a crimp she put into our plans." It would, Constance had to admit to herself. Hildegarde Thorvald was kind. But I wonder if it has occurred (a you, Derek, Constance thought, that I'm being made a little uncomfortable, too. "Mr. Thorvald is so busy, and young George is away sp much," Derek wrote on, "that she and I arc often alont in the evenings, She enjoys being read aloud lo, and I have been reading to her lately some of the books of travel and exploration of which she buys so many. For some strange reason she seems particularly interested in Tibet. She has a huge illuminated globe on which she follows the text as I read." .* * * CONSTANCE was finding her own evenings unendurably lonely. . Since the beginnings of Derek's swift courtship until he went away there had hardly been an evening that she had not spent with him, dancing, at play or a concert, or quite as often just silting in her cosy chintz-hung apartment. It was three days before another letter came. Derek had a great deal to say about the convenience of the studio Mr. Thorvald had fitted up for him—about the bridal beauty o£ the fruit trees—about his moonlight horseback rides. . .. At long last, Constance found the paragraph for which she had been waiting: "Something came up here after I wrote you last (hat has made it impossible to bother Miss Thor- vaJci with, my own affairs for the immediate present. > "It seems that there is some trouble about her brother, to whom she is devoted. I do not entirely understand the circumstances; but I gattm- that the young cub has got himself mixed up with some woman, and that his father is furious. The poor girl is in a terrible spot between the two. I am sure you will agree with me that it Is out of the question to intrude our plans on her just yet." J£ Constance felt that sojne of this chivalrous tenderness might ve been devoted to her own n«ed,-she suppressed, the thought; Resides, it was not chivalry she wanted from Derek. I! h« did not long for her as she did lor him, then she did not want anything from him, she told herself, . •. . And one could not blame Derek for that fine sensitiveness /I* made him so sympathetic to 11 moods of those about him. ' There was no reference to young George in the next letter, or to Derek's impending talk with Miss Thorvald—nor in the next. * * * CONSTANCE continued to write cheerful, chatty letters about her experiences at (he store—there seemed, strangely enough/ to. be so little elso she had to tell Derek about, since of the one thing closest lo her heart she would not write. She thought some of her efforts really amusing, even though she sometimes composed them with tears in her eyes. There had been no letter at all from Derek for over a week. ; One day Constance, opening the door into Hie room where several of the girls were laughing and talking, found herself entering on a full stop. As he crossed the room, she was coi. ; ius of veiled glances following m, 1 ' ... Then Pauline, who was bending over a magazine open on a table, said smoothly, "Here's something, that may interest you, Consta Gertrude cried, "PaulirteY sharply; and someone Altered.' Knowing that she was walking into a trap, but seeing no possible retreat with dignity, Constance moved over to the table aiid glanced down at the open page. Tfie magazine to which Pauline pointed was a pictorial bulletin of gossip concerning the great and near-great—the famous and the merely infamous. On the page spread before Constance over the caption: CITRUS PRINCESS AND . INTERNATIONAL PRIZE WINNER, she saw a picture of Hildegarde Thorvald and Derek,, snapped as they lounged under palm trees. The story underneath began, "II is rumored that a romance is ripening between the beautiful Hilde- 1 garde Thorvald and the handsome young artist imported from th east to paint—" Constance did not read any ther. <To Be Continued) cms, vitamins and mineral' sails re included.
