The cement Tm-neath the ninny has been cushioned with dirt so that the animal's hocks won't be burned when Henry Ar-metta. Bill Bendix and three other men try to drag it off the bridge. If the hlnny were hurt, it wouldn't do the trick again. They rehearse the scene several times. The apoplectic major' general, who orders the hinny dragged off the bridge, is played try Minor Watson. Nobody will admit whom the character is patterned after, but Watson looks an awful lot like Patton. . Playing the general's chauffeur is John Hodiak's standin, Sgt. George Bohannon. It's a small world, Bo-hannon will tell yon. Only a few months ago he was piloting a Jeep for a real major general in the South Pacific.

Hoagy was the broken-down piano player in Howard Hawks' "To Have and To Have Not," and now he's an eccenW-ic taxi driver for Ned Marin. .

Even so, dif-feraie:-; in manners, customs and culture minority moves in on a majority. The practical difficulties that face the people of the West Coast are not explained a:ay by referring to the fundamental rights of men or the guarantees of the Constitution. The differences that exist between races is more fundamental than the proclamations of freedom that have com'e to men. The question is not one of good Americans against bad Japanese; it involves the slow development of entirely different peoples into a state of mutual respect and esteem. . "PLAYING THE GERMAN GAME"! Lord Templewood, who recently resigned after serving five years as British Ambassador to Madrid, urges his people not to divide Europe "into definite camps, intrj reds and whites, communists and fas- cists," and adds that "this is playing the German game". The British diplomat went to Madrid in 1940, with instructions to keep Spain as neutral as possible. He says that the Germans "morally occupied" Spain and that Nazi influence directed much of Spain's national life, exercising great influence WOLF IN IWS CLOTHING Sti 94S Br AUTHOR - DISTRIBUTED BY KIN6 FEATURES SYVOlCATB, INC. lm Cradle Roll: superintendent, Mrs. George Kyle and assistant, Mrs. Minnie Wliitcomb.

It turned me cold to think of the danger it had been to Drue. But there was only one explanation for her possession of the box, for her refusal to explain it to me, and that was that she was protecting someone. And the only person she would protect was Craig . . . Still I didn't believe he had killed his father but Dme u-as afraid lie had, because she believed Craig had a motive. I had to get outdoors. I had to reach some sensible conclusion about that box. In the hall, as I was starting for a walk, I met Anna. She had an enormous black eye, a perfect mass of green and purple bruises. I stared and she said quickly, "I ran into a door, Miss." "Really, Anna. Dear me." Then I added, "You're sure yi didn't see anyone in the meadow last night?" "Yes, Miss. I didn't see anyone but you." However, I persisted. "I thought you might have seen someone in the meadow. Someone you were afraid to tell the police about" - But she didn't show any change of expression. "No, Miss," she said stolidly. But Nugent had been sufficiently impressed by my story of the shooting to question Anna.'

Hop in." - -. It suited me perfectly, for I wanted to hear about the inquest. So I got in beside him, lookirlg with admiration at the luxurious car. "A beauty, isn't -it?" he sid, backing expertly so as to head the long gray hood toward the village. "My means don't run to ears like this, though. It's Alexia's." After a short pause, Peter remarked, "You must be ' tired. They've kept you going. What with Craig sick and all the to-do over Conrad's death." - "And such trifles," I suggested, "as the bump on the door and see ing Nicky?"
