Not -that sha .had any idea what it was all about until Pytak, the Russion director, tore his hair and shouted in her face shaking a fist at them all: : "Not one ting duss he dool Pis Venell he dreamsssl- De box of-f iss is not goot! And you blame Pytak! Gif me ." , Linda didn't know why she said it, but she found herself on her feet. 'But Cooper Venell isn't a gangster type. He's a poet! There is a new life of Keats that wai just written for him. It's by James Myron. Venell, in spite of his size, has the face of a dreamer of poetry. Can't you see it?" ., , Linda was aghast at her. own temerity. The others were also aghast, but not for the same reason. It suddenly occurred to them that Venell was a miscast. If Hollywood was incredible to Linda, Linda was incredible to Hollywood. From that mornent, she became an Important person! - ' , - ' To Be Continued) ' ' p , ' ' ' ) ( 1 I ' LOOKIT THIS CUV tf TRAVELIMC AU AROOMP ' ' C THe COOMTHY AND I CAMT VEM GETAWAY V; BALL came '-:.',,'... ( ' . .... I rfenucy Hollywood! Linda closed her eyes and tried to picture its fabu lous appearance. She had a moment of longing for Newtown, the dusty, ink-sweet smell of the Blade office, rising from its shadows, when she ar rived at Los Angeles on that late March afternoon, alone and a little frightened, and went direct to a fashionable hotel she had heard of. She dressed in a simple evening gown, dined in lonely splendor in the main dining room; lingering over her coffee. She felt so alive, so young and so lonesome. If she only knew one person! The letter from Commonwealth Century had told her to report as soon after the 15th as possible. It was a cold, impersonal letter. Linda Bourne was not a celebrated star. She was a little ex-reporter, com- ming to a Bzuo-a-week job. Very unimportant to Hollywood There was no one to meet and enter tain her. She bought a book and took it to her room. Her first night in California was not to be an auspicious one. It might have been a melancholy one had there had not been a telegram from Pete. Linda fell on it with a whoop of joy and read and re-read its seemingly sillv words. 'DON'T BE LONELY STOP THINKING OP YOU BESIEGED BY ANXIOUS DIRECTORS STOP CONNOLLY FIRED TODAY WON SWEEPSTAKES MONDAY WIFE BOUGHT COW AND SEQUIN DRESS WHATEVER THAT IS STOP HARPERS HAVE FIRST SPRING VIOLETS - STOP ASK PRODUCERS WHY COOPER VENELL PLAYING GANGSTER PARTS IS POET STOP READ ING MYRON'S LIFE OF KEATS MAKE SWELL MOVIE STOP CAN'T HELP LOVING YOU NO STOP PETE." Harper's, Newtown's only flor - ist, had the first spring violets! Last year Pete had brought them wet, dark, fragrant to Linda, and told her they were like her fv(R.

Shn smllprl at th folnornm I 1 j it forever, even when its core of passion has flamed and burned Its center out. No, Linda had experienced tenderness and had its precious essence given to her, but she didn't know what it was all about, Dressing in her simple knitted frock the next morning, she slipped the telegram into her handbag. "Moral support, as usual,' she said, snapping its clasp. There was only one way to get out to Commonwealth City, the hills over which the Commonwealth Century studios and sets were splashed. Linda rode in a taxi, with quaking knees and a dignified speech of introduction rehearsing itself automatically on her dry lips. But she didn't get a chance to try her speech that day. She didn't get into the studio and she didn't get past the gateman. She had no pass, no words that would sub- stitute. There was only one way to get In, even If she were a Garbo, and that was with a pass. Frantically, that whole day Linda tried to find some way to get into the Commonwealth lot that had engaged her at a tremendous (to her) salary. She was worried that they would be annoyed because she was wasting valuable time and salary Linda had a lot to learn. She tried to reach Honey Harmon by telephone. "Miss Harmon's number is private. We cannot give out that information." After four days of wasted effort, Linda wired Pete for advice. SEE MOVIE EDITOR OF LOCAL PAPER," he wired. Linda did that, and found herself in a small . office on the Commonwealth lot with a telephone, a Persian carpet, a desk she could have slept on but didn't, pvpn though shfk hnrt littln clqfa in do. Apparently Commonwealth forgot why they had brought her to Hollywood. No one could - tell her what to do. Ho one had anything for her to do. "Bleak Spring" which was to be called "Take a Letter," wouldn't be in production for two or three months. Linda read newspapers, wrote long letters home to Pete, Wilda and her other friends, and read all the old scripts she could lay her hands on. Then came the day of a writers' conXerqncq.,All the writers on the lot were called. Linda welcomed the change from her lonely, useless routine. She loved the shout-Ing, the excitement, the argu- 0 women would give Pete the kind effect of machinery on unemploy ment. Furthermore while the use of machinery has been increasing, new industries have sprung up, and technological employment has more than kept pace with population Increases. During the period when the population of the Unit-od States Increased 218 per cent industrial employment increased 201 per cent, meaning that indus tries arc employing a larger proportion of the population now than ever before. Probably more than half of the persons employed to- day are working in industries that did not fcxist a century or so ago. One needs but to look around him to sec for himself. For example, right here iri Albany count the garage and service 'station attendants and compare them wflh the number of persons formerly employed In livery stables andl blacksmith shops. Compare the number of men now working on road construction and mainten ance with those engaged in similar work 50 years ago. Consider the millions engaged in manufacturing and distributing electrical appliances of which there were none but a few decades ago. ' Yes, industry is doing its part toward giving people jobs. It can and will do more, but other lines of employment must do their share as well if jobs arc to be available for afl who are willing to work. JUST TOO BAD Ilaile Selassie, emperor of Ethl'- opia, as an exile in England constitutes a sorry picture of thwarted ambition and defeated hopes. This ruler of an uncivilized and barbarous country set out to modernize his nation. His task was one that called for a tranaformatldn from age-old tradition and custom to modern practices, from savagry to culture a task that could not be accomplished overnight. Lacking himself the cultural training which he wished his peo ple to have, Haile Selassie was sending out into the western world selected young men of his realm whose mission in life was to acquire themselves the knowledge and ways of civilization and on returning to impart to their coun trymen what they had learned. Thus to rebuild an empire is a slow process,- loo great a task to be accomplished in one generation. It was too much to expect a ruler starting from scratch, as Selassie was forced to do, to modernize Ethiopia entirely within his own life-time. So it is not surprising that the Ethiopian insistence to Italian in vasion should crumble. That Se lassie had made a beginning toward unifying his nation of Independent tribes Is evident from the erstwhile solidified front which the defenders have shown to their enemy. But the emperor could not make his tribesmen see that his plan of sparing his own men by using them as snipers from natural vantage points was best. Primitive Instinct asserted Itself and (he Ethiopians must 1 display their valor via open combat. Tills was their 'undoing. The could not stand mim-lo-ninn against a mori-crnly equipped foe. So Mailt Selassie was at lust t'on-i-iicrcd by. the savngry which he j liad set out to vamiuish. Perhaps the Italians may be ammipnsn-ing, as they have repeatedly expressed us their intention to do. what Halle Selassie failed to do. If so, perhaps the deposed emperor's dream may " be realized even the sooner by his overthrow. FOLLY .nd FAREWELL of love he offered, and she felt a little sorry for herself that she couldn't feel that way. Well, it was ended now.

Linda had given him her affection, but not even n small measure of the love that he had for her. At that moment he was not sorry to sec her go. He wanted her to be away where he would not have to see her and hnve the consciousness always with him that he could not have nil of her, and he could not release her from what he hud. ' He drove her to' the ' railroad station and the train that would take her away, and they found few words to say to cuch other, l.inda wanted to tell him tilings that she found herself too inarticulate to put into words.

Pete asked himself if it was possible when, that night and many other nights, trying to forget her, he sat and labored over the play he was to call "Remembrance." - ,jAnd ' Linda,: speeding west, thought of Pete and missed him and knew, that she was going to miss him. But Linda lacked the quality that makes it possible for other girls to put people nway in cozy pigeon holes where they cun be brought out again when time and circumstances are ready for them. ..". Onccicfore Linda had faced Something that was important to her, and put It behind for all time. There had been Dlx, and now there wns Pete. She had not been fair to him.
