"Fasy Pickings," published HOLLYWOOD HI JINKS: The' HEAVY FLEET LOSSES. The British Information Service announces that from the beginning of the war until August 13th, the British Empire lost 561 fighting ships, including three battleships, two battle-cruisers, five aircraft carriers, twenty-eight cruisers, fourteen armed merchant cruisers, 124 destroyers, 64 submarines, seven frigates, twenty-three corvettes and 289 miscellaneous smaller craft. .The United States, despite far-flung naval warfare against Japan, has lost only 173 warships, including one battleship, six carriers, nine cruisers, and twenty-seven destroyers. While losses do not necessarily reveal the relative contribution made by the two navies, the heavy losses suffered by the British fleet indicates the dangerous task a short time ago by Brentano's Cora Sue's ma, Mrs. Clyde Collins, gave the family Its second surprise by eloping to Las Vegas with Edgar Mason, New York actor, who was in the same "Junior Miss" road company as Cora Sue.

Incidentally, Warners' appeal on Olivia's contract judgment soon will be heard in court. She still has one unreleased picture, "Devotion," the story of the Bronte sisters, which Olivia made with Ida Lupino almost two years ago. there is an additional pleasure in store in the cast of the far-famed, sensational picture, "The Last are taking out a J250.000 policy on Zachary Scott's voice during the! filming of "Hold Autumn in Your Hand."

The United States, at that time, was busily preparing for possible warfare and our stupendous success has been due, in part, to the time enjoyed while the British Navy stood between us and potential foes. The British reveal that today their fleet is more powerful than when war began and everybody in this country knows that the United States navy has become the greatest fleet in the history of the world. If the two nations are wise enough to maintain their overwhelming naval superiority it will be a powerful force for future peace. $400,000,000 FIRE LOSS. The week of October 8th has been proclaimed Fire Prevention Week by the President who calls attention to the large waste every year from preventable fires. In the midst of the war exertion it is more important than even to use every precaution against the destruction of needed materials and plants by fires that can be prevented. Nevertheless, the same need is apparent almost every year and we should not get the idea that this is a wartime campaign. Fire losses, according to the U. S. Chamber of Commerce, have increased steadily since Pearl Harbor. In the seven months of 1944 they were nearly fifteen per ..cent above the 1943 period. This means, , if the trend continues throughout the ;year, that 1944 losses will be over $400,000,000, higher than any year since 1932. ;T.hej business organization says that farm fires have increased substantially ancjadds that "there never was a time wheti fire prevention was more necessary on ml types of buildings, stocks and furnishings." Seattle Thomas E. Dewey, Republican nominee for President: "A change in the national administration next January will involve no change in the military leadership of the war." Chicago Gen. Henry H. Arnold, Chief of the Air Services: "If we accept as our guiding principle to keep America first in the air we shall not have fought this global war in vain . . . that nation which commands the air commands its own destiny."

'Twill He Street Carnival t'nless Protects Come Placards have been posted announcing the beginning of a carnival Monday, September 28. The attractions are to be furnished by thA Clobe Amusement and Carnival company. The arrangements for the pitching of the tents in Clinton were made by a committee of the Owls and the representative of the carnival company, last Wednesday. The committee has held conferences with the mayor and the streets and alley committee, and while the officials claim they have not conceded the privilege of the streets for the week of gaiety, the tacit understanding is that neither the council nor the officials will make any objection. Another lodge besides the Owls is negotiating to bring a carnival here after this one leaves. Personals Mr. and Mrs. Court I.. Meyer, with Miss Louise Ogdon. Martha Blight.

She had said, "Lynn . . . about Christmas . . . I can't bear' to leave Matthew alone," and Lynn had answered, "Then you mustn't, of course. But dare I exercise a husband's prerogative that of advice only and suggest that it might be good discipline?" They had been married very quietly, with only Matthew and Lynn's daughter and her husband present. Judith had wired: "You know how happy I am for you and how much I want to be with you." On the night before the wedding she had talked to Mary by telephone. Mary had asked, "Have you heard from Matthew ?" and there was a silence; then Judith answered, "No." So on Christmas night, Matthew dined at his club alone. He thought, She can't let Christmas go by like this, she'll write, she'll wire, she'll phone . . . But there was nothing. He reached home late that night. Olga and Nils had done their best with holly and a small trimmed tree. They had, that morning, displayed their gifts from Judith and Matthew had admired them. His own gifts were under the tree, those from his mother and Lynn, from his associates, from patients. Twice during the evening he went to the telephone and asked for long distance, only to tell the operator that he had changed his mind. When, shortly before midnight, the phone rang sharply, he moved to answer it with his heart hammering. But it was the hospital calling, and he put on his coat and went out. The New Year came, and still no word from Judith. Matthew told himself: Well, she's made up her mind. I'll have to make up mine. But his was already made up. She did not love him or she would not have left him . . . Yet, although his mind said, that's it, she doesn't love me, he knew how wrong a man's mind can be. Matthew's heart spoke too strongly, drowning the voice of his mind. Matthew went out whenever he could. He put the best face possible on the situation, so far as outsiders were concerned, saying: "Judith was well, but her mother was ill and she felt that she must be with her." That was the invariable answer to any question, asked out of friendship, concern, or curiosity. No more, no less. Sam and Bill looked at him and listened patiently to their wives' inevitable discussions. To each other the men said, "It looks bad . . . but" Elizabeth told her husband definitely, "I know she's left him," and her eyes were wet Peter kissed her and said soothingly, "You know nothing of the kind, dear." Matthew wondered (since he himself had said, "If you leave me you needn't come back!") why he could not face it, even to admit it to his friends? Why not say bluntly: Sure she's left me. No, she's not coming back . . . But his pride would not permit it . . . He thought: If I don't hear from CHAPTER FORTY-ONE "You married Irene without telling me beforehand. I refused to let myself be hurt ... if that was what you wanted, well and good. I grew fond of her. I applauded her efforts to follow in my footsteps. When she died, I was stricken, chiefly for your Bake." Matthew said, "You look at me as if it was my fault." "I haven't even thought it Then, when Judith returned ... I was glad, I thought she was right for you. I still do." After a pause, Matthew frowned, "I suppose I'm to be tickled to death about you and Lynn 1" "No," said his mother, "I don't expect anything of the kind." Suddenly he exclaimed, "I've been a fool!" Mary held her breath. Presently he went on, "Judith wanted a child. I didn't I didn't want to share her ... I thought, we could wait If she had had a baby this wouldn't have happened." His mother said steadily, "Don't be too sure of that What Judith wanted was that your need for a child would be as deep and compelling as her own, a living symbol of your love for each other." "I thought we were sufficient to each other." "You weren't," hi mother said, after a moment The doorbell rang. She said, "That's Lynn. He's coming for dinner." She looked at her son. "I'm not going to ask you to be civil to him," she said firmly, "I'm going to tell you to be civil." Lynn came in, and looked from one to the other. He said, "I see that you told him." He crossed over to the young doctor and held out his hand. "And I see thst you don't like the idea, Matthew. But perhaps you'll get used to it I hope so, very sincerely." Matthew took the older man hand, saying, "It's all right with me, Lynn. I was a little startled, at first." He tried to smile; succeeded. 11a added, "I hope you'll be very happy." . ., "Good!" exclaimed Lynn heartily. "We expect to be. If your mother isn't I shall beat her on alternate Tuesdays." He looked younger than Matthew had ever seen him, more confident gay. He saw his mother look from him to Lynn, saw her face light up, her eyes shine. He crossed over and kissed his mother on the cheek. He said, "Okay and I'll give you away," snd patted her on the shoulder. Tears stood in her eyes. She thought. It's hard for him, but he's trying. . Lynn asked, "Aren't you staying to dinner?" Matthew shook his head. "I have to make a call," he said. "So fcng, you two." Driving out to Westchester in the thick darkness, heavy with wet snow, he thought, Well, that's that. He had lost them both, his mother and his wife. . . Matthew celebrated Christmas by , dining alone at his club. Little Place was closed, and be refused a dozen she with you toaay t "She's in California," he told her, "with her mother who is ill." "I see," said Mrs. Mason who had , heard all about Judith, ten minutes after meeting Matthew, after she had succeeded in detaching herself long enough to make a few inquiries of her hostess. Now and then they went to tho theater or dined together. Gwen Mason was very attractive. She liked him. Toward the end of January, Gwen came to dine with Matthew at tha apartment Nils served, disapprovingly, and Olga shed tears in the kitchen. They had been given the evening off, after dinner. Olga said, "I knew she wasn't coming back." They looked at each other in horror. Gwen had red hair and dark eyes and she wore black alluringly. "I hope," said Matthew smiling, "that I'm not called out tonight" "I hope so too," said Gwen. Funny how little they had to say to each other. The silence was not that of lovers or potential lovers but of awkwardness. Some time after dinner, Gwen murmured, "Perhaps I made a mistake ... or did you?" And when Matthew asked, "What do you mean ?" she shook her red head and regarded Judith's picture on the mantel. "If I were a man," she commented, "and had a wife who looked like that I wouldn't let her stay away." The telephone rang. It was a patient It was rescue, it was respite. "My dear," apologized Matthew, "I'm so terribly sorry." "Nonsense," said Gwen, "you're relieved." She rose and went to get her wraps. She said, standing there, "I'll take a taxi. No, don't bother. It was fun while it lasted and it might have been more fun." She gave him her cool, firm hand. "Good night Matthew," she said, "thanks for everything. Tonight was by way of an experiment wasn't it? You see, you can't forget that you're still in love with your wife." The door closed and Matthew took out his handkerchief and mopped his forehead. Be- took a deep breath. (To be concluded) CepmrM.
