"No. Is thai where you were heading?" "Sure. To photograph the bird life." "You missed it well over 500 miles." Nona McGuire laughed. "You and that other woman take bird pictures too?" Mabel Jones asked. "Heavens no," Nona said sweetly. "Mis« Stark and I are atmosphere and background. The motion picture industry requires such things you know," "You're in the movies?"
