Just before closing time Judith was called to the telephone. Taking up tho receiver, she heard Eden Harris' cheery voice al tho other ond of tho wire. "Would you bo willing to try dinner with mo again?" Judith hcsttaled. Certainly she did not feel much llko dining out and vet she disliked to say "no" to this friendly voice. "Why, yes," she managed at last, "You seem upset, Judith. Perhaps another time would bo boiler." "Oh, no. It's nothing, really. I'd lovo to go tonight."

The tiny "ladles' bar" of Eden's club was quiet and restful. Judith liked tho soothing pasto)-£reen walls, Iho quaint old-fashioned prints and tho lltllo knee-high lables. Contentedly she turned Iho rim of her cock- tall glass in her fingers, lounged deep In the comfortable chair. "This is nlco," she told TCden. Ills face brightened. "If you really llko It, Judith, I'm going to ask you a question. Because," ho added with u smile. "I've been, meaning to ask 11 a long llmo now."

All tho way to the restaurant he talked gallv of Insignificant things. , hut beneath the brltlle surfacn of j his gaiety ihere, was an undercurrent of despair lie could nol hide from Judith. 'Continued Tomorrow) MEW YORK, Sept: 17.—Frank Scully writes mo Interestingly*to explode many of. the myths that have clung to his friend, Jim Tully, the writer. First: Tully never was ,a hobo, He was a road kid in the manner of Jack Dempsey, Stanley Ket- ohell and Jack .London. He quit gypsylng at 21 and has worked hard since. Tully and Johnny Kllbane started boxing the same year. Tully's first fight in the arena was a main event, a 10-round draw In Chicago. At 23, Martin Davey, now Ohio's governor, sent Tully in command of. 10 men on a tree surgery Jaunt. It was Davey who really started Tully to write. He asked him to do a piece f.or the company bulletin—his first effort. Tully educated himself in public libraries of tho land. When he was a road kid, the first place he hit for in a strange town was the library. Later, Rupert Hughes and Mencken saw his literary possibilities. Tully's home Is of brick, set down among 100 giant eucalyptus trees in a three-acre section of Toluca Lake in California. It's a copy of George Sorrow's home in England and regarded as one of the three most civilized homes in a land of magnificent mansions. Al Jolson has' been the No. 1 Lucky Boy of tho race courses this season. Ho is Ihe only plunger In five years to • take the bookies for a rlda. Which is something of an evening up process for the mammy wah-waher. During most of his professional atid high earning years he has peen steadily nicked—often at $50,000 a clip. Those who. know, say ho Is the : gamest of losers and the most Jubilant of winners. When his nag comes under Ihe wire firsl he cannot refrain from Jgolng into, a dance.'

TABOO OK GALLANTRY Editor The Callfornlan: Your spirited "Random Notes" deriding the Soviet prohibition of delightful gallantries, rendered to the fair sax by all he-men be they young, elderly or decidedly old, pleased me very much indeed. Tho orthodoxy of the Graeco-Sla- vonlan religion had taught the Russian peasants how to cross themselves when in the presence of sacred objects. This concerned their spirit-, ual behavior. And tho Jong since massacred aristocrats of that land had left them the faint memories of sentlmenlal conduct in the midst of fair sex. It is said that even today, when tho Communist propaganda has reached its apogee, the Russian provincial pilgrims to tho tomb of Lenin, the anti-Chrlsl, manage to Ihrow Ihomsolves on Iheir knees and cross their hearts in spito of the rushing ladles of the military guards al the mausoleum. In tho same ultra-degenerative manner these bearers of the fragments of the destroyed culture of the upper classes of old Russia behave themselves In the performance Of those, now disappearing, polite actions towards tho fair sex which we call "gallantries of old." Take tho kissing of my lady's hands for instance. Formerly an aristocrat kissed thorn dlgrilfiedly, re> spectfully, in that sweat manner of "your obedient servanl" and "your gallant protector." Today a proletarian comrade, Ivan Ivanovltch Ivanov, kisses the hand of his Amazonian virago, and makes both, a substantial meal out of it and an entertainment for the flesh. No wonder the following incident could have occurred In that land of fattening soldiers and emaciated "citizens." It seems that in a bread lino of tho Soviet robots there stood, wait- Ing for their long-delayed turn, a Don-Ivan and Camarado Katlnka Like tho rest of the" Soviet boarders all over tho vast spaces of tho U. S S. R., they had their hands dul) stamped with a "ration registration seal" (oh, ye sympathizers of communism, how would you like to have such stamps on your reddening 1 noses?), which entitled them to a single meal. Don-Ivan could not very well "spend a whole day in abject an- :iclpation of a-meal and eagerly commenced to kiss the hands of his mannish lady-comrade In front. And when the willing but awfully sloppy Katlnka approached the food- counter and exhibited her hapd for Identification, alas, and a thousand times alas, the .ration-registration seal was not there-^-on her muscular, fleshy hands not.even a Discernible speck of it! . . . The vigorously flapping lips of Don-Ivan and his adhesive passions of a twentieth century red-man had rubbed this seal off completely! We can and should visualize tho consequences, political, corporeal and dramatic. , VICTOR C. SVIMINOFF. P. O. Box 742, Bakersfield, September 14,-1936. STAMP HONORS WOMAN Editor .The Californlan: I wan Interested to note that a Susan B. Anthony commemorative stamp was issued a few days ago. I wonder how many persons know much about this woman?
