They've been looking now for weeks. Lois is working In "Nob Hill" and Tracy is in the air corps stationed at Santa Ana. The parents of Warner Star Eleanor Parker will come to live with her in Hollywood. Eleanor's dad, Lester D. Parker, has been a mathematics teacher at Glenville high school in Cleveland for many years. He's due for retirement. Incidentally, that was a nasty wound Eleanor got trying to stop a dog fight. Another peacemaker accidentally hit her in the head with a rake. Took four stitches to close the cut. She can't return to "Of Human Bondage" until Monday.

Francen is now under contract to Warner Brothers, where he appeared in "The Conspirators." He is becoming an American citizen. Betty Compson and her Navy man never used the marriage license. The romance is off and Betty has become a traveling promotion representative for a cosmetic company. She may be away from Hollywood for a year. Latest on Bob Sterling Is that he is being transferred from Sacramento to Mather Field in Douglas, Ariz. He and Ann Sothern are expecting their baby in November. From playing Mickey Rooney's mother in the Hardy pictures, Fay Holden switches to being Spencer Tracy's mother tn the Canadian war loan film M-G-M is making. Fay IS a Canadian, you know. She and her husband used to own a chain of theaters in Vancouver. Bonita Granville just bought the house she's been renting to keep it from being sold out from under her.

The people of the United States, in considering the settlement that must follow victory in Europe, should never lose sight of the fact that the war is being fought, not alone by the United States, but by our valiant allies, the British and the Russian people. Naturally, when the time comes to write the terms of the settlement, the British' nd the Russians will expect to have a voice in the arrangements made. It is not intelligent for the people of this country tb expect that both allied nations will auto-emanates from Congress, the White House matically agree with every suggestion that of the pressure groups that promote foreign interests in the United States. If we view the situation from a coldblooded angle, the United States will be lucky to establish one-third of its viewpoint, insofar as contested items are concerned. This leaves one- third to conform to British opinion and one-third to take care of the Russian viewpoint. It may be that the people of this country may not like some of the ideas advanced by our Allies. The same can be said with certainty of the reaction that British and Russian citizens will have to our thoughts. Consequently, if the three nations are to get along in peace, as well as in war, there must be compromise. It is essential for us, in the United States, to be willing to make reasonable concessions in the interest of unanimity. ifo WORRY CALLED FOR. There are some people worrying about the inability of the German people to surrender and how the Allied armies will handle the situation inside Germany if the armies in the field are broken into fragments and surrender piecemeal. We see nothing to be concerned about. If the Nazi armies are cut to bits, with the hopeless stragglers captured, the way will be open for the Allies to march into Germany. Naturally, they will have some problems in relation to the civilian population but what about them? When German armies marched into conquered lands they did not concern themselves with the welfare of the civilian populations. If, in turn, the German people have to suffer from the disordered state that follows defeat there is no occasion for crocodile tears.

Though Powell is. of course, a well established favor- te in the comedy field, it marks their first appearance together in a screenplay of light vein. Their Initial co-starring venture was last year in "Crossroads."

Starring Fred MacMurray and Paulette Coddard, it bows in to night at the Columbia Theatre. Paulette's performance in "Standing Jloom Only" is said to be an appropriate follow-up to the ster ling enactment of her wisecracking nurse role in "So Proud ly We Hail."

Hons Rest CHAPTER THIRTY-EIGHT Judith continued'Matthew wants to build a guest house, I suppose you know that?'' "Yes, he spoke to me about it. I thought it an excellent idea." Judith asked, "He's sold you on it, has he ? He did Mother too, when she was here this spring and summer. She thought it a wonderful idea. I don't." "But there's room," Mary eaid, "Bince you acquired the extra acreage." "Room and to spare," conceded Judith. "I wanted to take a couple of refugee children . . but there wasn't joom for them." "I remember something of the discussion last winter. It was sweet of you, dear. But possibly Matthew war richt." "Oh, he had all the arguments," said Judith; "he pointed out the practical side of it: If anything happened to their parents and other relatives we would be under obligation to keep them with ua until they were of age, no matter how they had turned out, now aismu-irinnpd we minht become about them On the other hand, he argued that we might become deeply attached to them, and then it would be difficult to give them up." "Well," remarked Mary mildly. "that's sensible enough." "Matthew." said Judith, "can be very sensible." She set down her cup and leaned back in the big chair. She added, after a moment, "Mary, I asked you to come up with me ahead of whatever gang seems to be on the schedule because I wanted to tell you that for some weeks I have been considering leaving Matthew." Mary went perfectly whit. She could not sppak for a moment. When he did her lips felt stiff. Sua mur mured, "You can t mean mat, u dith." "I do mean It." "But vou love him!- "Oh, I love him," Judith agreed, "I suppose I shall love him all my life. I hope not. I hope Ml get over it, but I doubt it. You see, 1 wanted a lot more from marriage than " She stopped. There were thing you could not discuss. She began again. "I won't be able to make you see. J haven't been able to make him aee." "You mean you've actually told him that you would leave him 7" ''No. I warned him first, a year ago. Recently, again. He doesn't believe it. tie laugns at me. "I don't understand," Mary said helplessly. "No. But I thought somehow that marriage was a working partnership, give-and-take. Matthew take$," stressed Judith firmly, "as he's taken all his life. First from you. then from Irene, and now from me." There was a silence until Mary said, "I still can't believe that you mean this." "I do." Judith's grave blue eyes looked directly into her mother-in-law's as she rose and put her hand on Mary's shoulder. "I've troubled you and I'm sorry. I won't say anything more. Let's put on our topcoats and walk in the garden. It Will be dark soon." Mary walked, o tfie terrace doors Z(, W1L11 timui ......... ... prjm out lined.

Eavcdropper An old Saxon law forbade a man to build a house closer than two feet from another's property, so that water from the eaves would not drop on his neighbor's land. Thus a person who approaches close to another to overhear what he says came to be known as an eavesdropper. Heavy Pressure Some whales are able to dive to depths of three-filths of a mile.

He leaned acrosa the table to tell Judith that he had a marvelous idea for a Christmas celebration ... up at Little Place, he added, with a good crowd. Mary glanced at Judith. She looked exceptionally pretty in ft sleek little black velvet frock with a demure lace collar and cuffs. But her eyes were shadowed and her cheeks flushed with delicate rouga as if concealing an unusual pallor. After dinner when in the living room, Lynn spoke to Mary, aside. "What's wrong with Matthew?" he asked. "Why, nothing," she replied instantly. "I've never seen him look better." Lynn hesitated. He said, "Sounds pretty ah.surd, hut it seemed to ma that ho wasn't as cordiiil as usual--toward me, that is. J've been racking my memory to try to recall something I may have rine or said. But I can't." He smiicd hk engaging, rather melancholy smile. "If it's because I'm here a good deal . . ." - She said a little sharply, "Haven't i you always been?" I:- "Yes, of course. That's what pus-zles me." V. "You imagine " she began, bujt V he interrupted her. ' "No, I don't, and you know it, y Mary ... I know, no one better, , how much Matthew means to ynu. The worst thing I could do would be to come between you " Matthew strolled toward them and inquired, smiling, "Am I inter? rupting a conference?" "Of course not," Lynn said, and went over to talk with Judith. Matthew looked after him. -He commented, sitting down on the arm of his mother's chair, "I thought that Lynn would spend the day with Rita." "He's going there prosently' "I see," lie hesitated as if he was going to sny more and then appeared to change his mind. " A very swell dinner!" he declared. Judith came over and looked ap-pealingly at Mary as she said, "If you don't mind too much? I've a headache ... I thought I'd go home and lie down for a time." "Dear, of course not, and I'm so sorry. Take her home, Matthew1 He hesitated again. He said, after a moment, "All right, get your things, Judy." On the way home he asked, "How bad is the head ? I'll give you something for it." "Not too bad. I didn't sleep very well last night." He said, "I suppose Lynn wiH stay on at Mother's. J heard that girl what's her name ? Mildred Smith say she had to get back to her hotel as she expected a longdistance call ... I wish Mother wouldn't put herself in an equivocal position." Judith observed wearily, "Your mother's old enough to take care of herself." "That's where you're wrong vaded by the enemy . The Japanese Ambassador speaks of the "embodiment with Judith. She said, a little hesitantly, "If you and Matthew . . ." To her great humiliation her voice was unsteady, tears stood in her eyes. "If you Oh," she said mis-serably, "I did so want him to be happy." "He is happy," asserted Judith. "I didn't mean just Matthew," said Mary, distressed. "I meant you too." "That's something else again," Judith told her. She put her arm through Mary's as they went out on the brick terrace and down the steps to the garden. 'I do love you," she said sweetly and sincerely; "you have been wonderful to me. I won't say, like a mother, because you aren't in the least like mine. But like a friend, the best friend I have. And I've hurt you. You'll dislike me," she ended wistfully. "No," said Mary, "I won't. Because I love you too ... as yourself, Judith, however mistaken I might think you, not just because you are my son's wife. And because I do feel this way about you I implore you not to do anything hasty or unconsidered. You've been married such a short time, a little over two years. And the first years aren't easy, they take a great deal of adjusting." "I know," said Judith. She stopped to pick a little chrysanthemum that looked like a pink daisy and put it in her lapel. "If you would only give this time," Mary urged. "I simply cannot believo . . ." "Sometimes I can't either," said Judith. "I've known Matthew since I was a kid. I was in love with him even then, I suppose. Then I Faw him again; but he was married to Irene, and they were happy. I knew him," she said firmly, "as well as anyone cun, as well as he'll let me. You you gave him so much," she went on slowly, "integrity and decency and his profession. And he's sweet, but " "But what?" Mary asked low. "Ho can't give, he won't give, not an inch, not an iota. He takes everything and gives nothing." After a pause, Judith declared, "I can't promise you anything, Mary." "Would you mind if I talked to him, Judith?" "I wish you wouldn't. There's no use, really. He'd hate it, it would antagonize him, and you'd be the one to suffer." She moved closer, and adiied, "Shall we go back to the house?" Mary had never seen her daughter-in-law look so forlorn . . . nor, in a way, so old; and surely never so unhappy. And standing here in the autumnal dusk of the dying garden with a chill wind rising, she could have wept bitterly for them both, for Judith and for Matthew. That year Judith and Matthew went to Mary's for Thanksgiving dinner. Lynn Mortimer was there 'I have to eat two dinners, he explained, "one here at midday and one tonight, at Rita's.

It is perfectly natural for Japanese, especially those in public positions, to speak boastfully in order to boost public morale. The chances are that they will be speaking bombastically until the final disaster destroys every vestige of hope for victory. London General Dwight D.
