At Intervals pilots would stop at tho table to speak to Graham, who Introduced them to Kay. It thrilled her, too, to notice that pasHengers, dining In tho roHtaurant while awaiting Iho arrival of planet), recognized Graham and nodded In his direction. Obviously they were wondering about the girl with tho CARIOUS pilot. After lunch Uenton went back to his office and Tod took Kay on an Inspection tour of tho Central Air entrance gate, and taxis whirled up and down tho landscaped driveways to tho terminal entrance behind, tl was the Ideal co-ordination of travel facilities on land, water and In tho air.

Its success lies in subjecting the individual and making him one of the mass. It could not work otherwise. By that irony which happens in history Trotsky finds himself free in a land whose type of government he was bent on destroying and his life and liberty protected by that government against the group in Moscow who would sacrifice him in order to remove their greatest critic. Still more curious is that there should be Americans who would seek to destroy the government of the.

Uoth stared out Into tho limitless spaces, and then Ted turned. "There's my plane," ho said. "Right on the dot. I'll have to go down now. Will you come and see mo off?" "I'd love to," sho said. For the Infinity of a second he gazed at her, at her reddish hair and cat-green eyes, and head like a dla- dom In tho glaring sunlight. "You are a strange creature," ho said. "Strange?" "I don't know what It Is. Exotic. Something., Anyway—" Ho drew her close to. him, kissed her briefly, and then laughed. ''That's hello and goodby. That's tho life of a pilot!" Kay stood back, unconscious of his meaning. "Perhaps I'll bo seeing you," she said, "In one of those ports of call. San Francisco, Cheyenne, Ileno, or perhaps even that romantic Isle of Guam. You're everywhere all the time." Ho took her arm and helped her down the endless tiers of steps to tho walling room, stopping long enough to point out tho mural decorations, depleting tho progress of aviation. Then sho stood at the gate, wachlng him swing across tho concrete toward tho waiting plane. How strong he was! When ho turned to wave goodby she saw the tunned .fade, with Its mark of peril and danger, and then the flash o'f white which meant he was smiling. Suddenly Kay knew she would never, never forget that look of quiet resolution. Bhe would never forget those hours with Ted Graham. Tho plane rose, winging Its way toward the west where for Graham the greatest of aviation's ventures—the trans-Pacific route—waited. Kay turned and found the two girls, her companions of tho morn- Ing, standing nearby. They, too. had been watching tho plane take off. Alice Miller spoke first. "We made tho grade," she announced. "We're to go Into training tonight." Doris Lee said, "We looked everywhere for you and when we found you, you were with Ted Oruham! For a gnl who came here looking for a Job this morning, you work fast." Kay said, a little sadly, "He'll never give mo a thought again. He's thn kind that's hero today and gone tomorrow." For n moment all of them were VTKW YORK, Sept, 22—The unpre- - diotabta Gone Fowler never falls to have his go-native twirl at Fire Island. There In a primitive shack ho spends weoKs of solitude. Away from people, telephone, typewriter. Only his wife and children are with him. lie Is utterly paternal. Takes whole days to arrange games for them. , . . , Upon arriving at Fire Island he dons shorts and, so lmb)ted, Robinson Crusocs his niche of the Island. It may be that In this cloister he thinks up many pranks and those privately circulated and puckish poems that crack the blaseoslty of his adopted Hollywood. Fowler, an Innocent-eyed worldlng, Is spangled with more legends than any journalist of his time. Like so many other crack writers, he had his editorial genesis In Denver. 'Ihe Denver of Ford Frlck and Damon Runyon. More than most scribes, Fowler changes his pace. One year he may author a novel or biography. The next punch the clock In a cinema studio and next occupy an executive chair In a news room. Whatever his Job. ho performs It with gusto and manages to leave along the trail salty remlnls cences for the yarn spinners.

His co-operative apartment and homo at Easthampton are on the market. His dip Into tho movies netted him a long time contract am his daughter Buff has also moved to the west coast to perform scenario chores. Mrs. Cobb's Improved health In the California sunshine Is also a contributing factor In tho perma nent choice. Wo were discussing The Cautious Souls In Harry Burton's orlenta rugged dugout.

Colo, the cartoonist, was once buy ngr a hat In.'Ftcadllly and was down o a choice between two grays and. with oho on his head and the other n his hand, turned from the glass 6 the salesman for an opinion.

The joundee, coughing and replacing his irldge work, turned around and disclosed he was not tho friend at all but a strange Englishman. Ade craved pardon, adding ho had simply mistaken him for a friend, "It a quite all right," said the Englishman, "but does your friend care, for that sort of thing?" , I've soetfmany plays shucked of reallsrii by a player writing, a-note." Always It Is a phoney gesture to tho audience. No Ink, no actual writing. Only William H, Crane gave it reality. And It's pleasing to hear from an old stage manager that Crane demanded a workable pen, real ink and every note ho wrote could bo easily read afterward, correctly punctuated and all. , AU of which reminds me It takes a superb actor to put over convincingly: "I love you!"

And TBAKFIC ACCIDENTS Kdltor Tho Callfornlan: May 1 offer my personal and sincere thaiiks for your continued editorial Interest In tho new war on traffic accidents that Is being waged so Intensively throughout the country at tho present time? I think you will be Interested to know that 30 states now have permanent state-wide traffic safety organizations. Some of these are safety councils, organized by private citizens; others aro departments In state highway or motor vehicle divisions of the stale government. Literally hundreds of our cities now havo functioning safety organizations. Let me emphasize that the press Is playing an Important part In the ao tual rcducllon In Irafflc deaths during Iho first seven months of the present year. Total deaths for that period were 2 per cent lower than for tho some seven months of 1935, In splto of a 9 per edit increase In gas consumption. Now York cut deaths 12 per cent and New Jersey 13 per cent—demonstrating that traffic can bo controlled In even tho most populous, congested areas. About IB states have enacted anc administered standard drivers' license laws with examination requirements and with revocation and suspension clauses. A dozen other states have weak license laws that need strength enln'g badly. From now on througl 1037 the National Safety Councl will strive! vigorously to obtain the enactment of standard license laws for general adoption by all stales needing such leglslallon. The National Safety Council Is In tho "war" on accidents to tb finish—with a con'strucllvo prograir of safely engineering, public anc school education for safety, educa lion for Rtrlct. Impartial traffic la\ enforcement, driver research, psych ologlctil studies of Individual reac Ions and legislative activity for unl- arm traffic laws and regulations. Once again lot mo emphasize that know all of our own affiliated lately organizations In tho country, ogether with the many other co-operating groups, associations and Individuals Interested In this most worthy and Important work, Join ma n appreciation of tho major part he press has taken—and. Is taking— n this campaign against the traffic menace. W. H. CAMBRON, Managing Director. National Safety Council, 20 North Wacker Drive, ~ Chicago, September 10, 1936.
