She wear an unruly tangle of hair, bushy eyebrow, an ape-like Dlastlc nose, stained skin, a set or artificial teeth and a thick beard down her chin and neck. The beard is made of split kelp ainged with curling iron. To make it weirder, when I come onto the set, she's wearing a white sweater and a pair of blue slacks. "What doe the makeup leei like?"

She couldn't help letting the bitterness ihow in her voice. He shook his head. "How could it be a secret from you? That's a pretty dress." She always flushed a little when he complimented her clothes. Unlike most men, especially down on the eastern shore, he noticed what girls wore. "I want to go for a little walk with you if mother'll excuse us. Where's Miss Withers ? ' The old lady chuckled. "She' gone to spread the news of my getting a new nurse." "Why should anyone but ua be . interested in our private rffairs?" "Why should people buy paper and magazines to find out about Hollywood stars?"

This new movie is both, and with a ven- Horrison Corroll geance. ' Director Gregory Ratoft is shooting a scene today where Fred Mac-Murray, a spy for General Washington, crashes a party in a sort of Hessian U. S. O. near Valley Forge. Fred has lots of amazing adventures in the film. He starts out as a World War II 4-F who finds an old lamp, rubs it and, Aladdin-like, gets himself a genii. He asks the genii to help him into the army, but doesn't say which army. So, the first thing he knows, he's back in the Revolutionary days with General Washington. Before he's through, he aids Columbus to discover America, buys Manhattan island from the Indians for S24, and continues to hop about in time and space until he figures in a sort of satirical cavalcade of American history. Producer Bill Perlberg is elated with the idea. He and I watch the scene where MacMurray wanders i through a roomful of Hessian soldiers and girls, all wearing citron- colored wigs a subtle rib at the later Nazi boasts about a super race. i "You know," says Perlberg, "if we are successful, this may be the death-knell of all those cliche musicals.

She had really let her mother trick her into making an exhibition of herself and in front of Miss Withers, too, who was the town gossip. She remembered Miss Withers hadn't said a word, just drank it all in so she could spread the news later with proper embellishments. And Russell had not come up after her to offer sympathy. It meant he had none to offer, and that was annoying. He undoubtedly did not approve of the way she'd spoken to her mother and stamped her foot angrily. Russell was never angry himself at least, his control was always perfect. And he liked poise. She knew it was something he liked in her. And she wanted his liking. She was not sure he loved her as much as she loved him, but she was certain his love would ultimately be built on respect and admiration. She wanted that love. They had been engaged for several yeara now, but while she was the one who gav? out that she couldn't marry because her mother needed her so much, she still wanted Russell to catch her in his arms and beg her passionately to marry him at once. He hadn't done that. Their engagement had been quite prosaic. It was understood that when things were right they would marry. It was one reason she had wanted her little library in Weston. Russell office was in Weston. He really only came home to sleep. When they were married, they'd undoubtedly live In Weston, where their interests lav. Talbot was asleep, if not dead. It suited her mother, who would rather look at a ship under sail than read a good book. But she and Russell were both educated. Their Interests were in the future, not the past. They were going ahead. So she must not fail him by a petty display of temper which could serve no purpose If he was not impressed. That was logic, and she obeyed it. She bathed her face in cold water to bring a bit of color to her cheeks. She brushed her hair and arranged it more carefully. She slipped into another dress, so she could say that was why she had come upstairs. Then, after a final glance in the mirror, she went .,own. She could hear Russell's smooth voice and her mother's laugh. It didn't sound like an old lady's mirth at all. Laura closed her eyes to steady herself. It was one of the things that always hurt a little. She wanted Russell to like her mother, of course, but she didn't want them to hsve a little corner of life to which they withdrew and left her outside. And she didn'- want him to have Beth Anderson hanging around him, either. Beth was a ridiculous flirt who ran after every man who appeared in town, but she was the IS. A i and that unused business savings, tc form of corporation reserves, will be around $25,000,000,000. As everybody knows, many individuals and corporations have put off buying because of necessity during the war period. They will be in the market, as soon as the war ends, and the combined demand will create a tremendous market. During the period of years in which these savings and reserves are expended, the nation will experience something of a boom. When the postponed demands have been fulfilled, and the savings-reserves expended, a slump is inevitable unless proper planning provides buying power to keep the wheels of commerce moving. It is naturally impossible to estimate the length of the recission during the conversion period or the length of the boom which will depend upon the speed with which individuals and business spend their accumulated surpluses. Nevertheless, the basic facts of our economic situation do not forecast any great depression immediately at the end of the war, but, certainly, after a delay of some years, the nation will be in danger of a grave economic crisis. AN IDEA! An American private, somewhere in France, suggests a treatment for over-optimistic Americans who have been "sitting up two nights in a row waiting for the war to be over". The soldier, Ronald Moshki, explains how he heard a radio program from back home explaining the prevalent idea that the war with Germany was about over and the next day, thinking about his home folks, he was "nearly killed by a Nazi machine-gunner". So what? Well, Private Moshki suggests that the "folks back home might come over here and sit in this damn apple orchard". The treatment ought to work. WAR SOUVENIRS DANGEROUS. It seems that a word of warning is necessary to guard simple-minded Americans against the perils of certain types of war souvenirs. The other day, in another state, a bazooka rocket exploded, seriously injuring three of six youngsters. The rocket had been given to one of the boys by an uncle who brought it from Africa. Those who are old enough to remember the last World War undoubtedly recall numerous instances where similar souvenirs exploded with disastrous results. Consequently, if we are to avoid similar accidents from such mementoes in the immediate future, it is necessary for every one to exercise extreme caution in regard to these dangerous items. Chicago Warren Randolph Burgess, newly elected President of the American Bankers Association: "There is no more virtue in making bad international loans than bad domestic loans. Both make trouble." Philadelphia Vice-President Henry A Wallace: "There is but one issue in this campaign. One party thinks man should serve the dollar: The other thinks the dollar should serve the man." Washington James F. Byrnes, War Mobilization Director: "We must view our task after the war not simply as a task of demobilization from war but mobilization for peace."

The committee of the Owis are going ahead with the arrangements, Baying the event will come off as arranged, in spite of the people who have protested in a petition to the city council, and threaten injunction proceedings if any attempt is made to occupy the streets. Mayor Tucker makes no denial of the claim that he promised the business men there would be no more carnivals to monopolize the Btreets, but says he could not have stood by this promise without getting himself in bad with his council, with which he has to deal during the remainder of his term. He states that the promoters first went to the street committee and that they gave them conditional privileges, with the understanding that no concession was to be placed in front- of a business place where the proprietor objected.

YESTERDAY: After Russe.i arrival at the Reynolds houce. he witnesses a dispute between Laur and Mrs. Revnolds over the letter's hiring of Anne Wilson to be her nurse. Laura flounces angrily out of the room. CHAPTER SIX LAURA REVNOLDS was 30 years old, and usually very restrained and sure of herself. Really Mrs. Reynolds' granddaughter, she had started calling herself the old lady's real daughter as a child and now it was sometimes hard for her to remember that she was cne generation removed especially since she had taken her mother s name of Reynolds. It never occurred to her that people might think she was much older than rhe was if she had an 80-year-old mother. Dr. Banning on one of his visits, when he usually stayed for dinner, had I mentioned that. Her reply had been jthat it didn't matter in the least - how old people thought her to be. Thoughts weren't important, only fact were. Indeed, that was the policy under which she had run her life. She had never cared much what people thought about what she did. and that alone made her rather a figure in uch a little place a Talbot. After graduating from Jie university with honors, ahe had taught in a girls' school lor a while. Then she had come home and written some short stories which, to her amazement, hadn't sold, so she gave up writing. Later she had opened a gift shop in Weston and lost the money inherited from her father, who had died somewhere in South America. She hadn't seen him since her mother died when she was a child and she'd gone to live with her grandmother in Talbot. Now she had opened a circulating library and was full of enthusiasm as, in truth, she had been for her other ventures. She was sure she could rouse an eager reading public in Weston. As for Talbot itself, she knew people never read anything but newspapers. Laura was good looking in a dark, rather somber way, but he tended to scom her appearance, since she believed that intelligence was the dominating factor in life. And she did intend dominating. She believed in control. Nature was only important when her forces were harnessed to men' use. Control was all-important. So no soon yesterday's puzzle.
