"Oh, my sweet precious darling," she breathed finally. "I won't go. I'll stay here." Just like a little she told herself. Purring when I'm petted, hiding when I'm rebuffed, sitting on my little satin cushion, not having to worry about rehearsals and cranky directors and scene stealers. "But those are the things I want to worry about," flashed through her mind.

She her thoughts and said aloud, "It doesn't really matter, Larry, this offer. You can be the actor for the family. And now kiss me about ten times and forgive me for being a selfish Pig." Larry picked her up in his arms and sat down in a big bedroom chair. "I'll kiss you," -he Said, and began fulfilling his promise. "But I am the selfish pig.

And I must stop it right now, Anette. I want you to be an actress because I know you'll never be happy unless you are. Keeping you from the public eye would be like keeping your diamond ring under a pillow. Just from that little amateur play of Verrazano's I know what you can do. I know you are capable of great things and I want you to do them.

Even if we turn into a couple of bleeding hearts, as the love-lorn columns express it, while we are separated." "I'm not going," the girl declared again. "Oh, yes you are!"

August had yanked herself into the chin-held-high, majestic pose of royalty offened, which he knew so well, and was gathering her strength for a long speech.

"Please, August." he groaned. "spare me the duchess act. What argument can you possibly give, anyway? The marriage must have importance, to make you happy, so you told a batch of lies. Well, they boomeranged. Only you weren't hit I was." The actress made a speculative comment.

"I've about come to the conclusion I didn't tell any lies. Bradford and Seymour don't make mistakes, you know." "That's beside the point, August. I'm not interested in your trying to clear your conscience or make yourself feel proud because you glorified Anette in print, or whatever ideas are batting around inside that green rag tied about your head. I'm just interested in my wife and myself. "Yourself, particularly!" August said with a grimace.

Larry glared at her. "I happen to be in love." "I know what the word means. I've been in love so stop looking at me as if I were a hundred and two. I still say your are thinking only of yourself. If this offer had come a very few days ago Anette wouldn't have had to question you.

She simply would have said 'Yes'. I The only answer and the right i one. It still the right one." Her gaze beat against him. "You know what it means to get a break with Bradford and Seymour." Laurence Peyton skirmed and admitted unwillingly, "Yes, know but I she doesn't" "Oh, stop stuttering. You know we'd both give our right eyes for the opportunity.

Not that we'd make more money, necessarily, but it's different, Larry. It's a differ ence of drinking fine champagne from crystal glasses or from cheap china teacups. It's perfection and it falls right into the girls lap. Don't be selfish." The man's face above the tan and brown silk scarf was thought ful. "I know.

I know you re right. but why don you go home now, August?" Unoffended, she rose and said gently, "All right, Larry. I'm go ing, but I want to say something to Anette first." She trailed her crackling brocaded skirts into the bedroom and on into the bathroom where she found the young girl shampooing her hair, My, but you -are energetic! "I always wash my hair before I go on a trip," Anette retorted impertiently. She wrapped a huge bath towel about her wet head un til only one topaz eye was visible, then addressed Larry's leading lady, "It won't do you any good to try and stop me. "Stop you? Not in a million years.

I want you to go. Even if it's not more than seventy-five a week. Completely nonpulsed, Anette murmured, "It's only fifty." August Drake gave the young girl a pat under the chin that amounted almost to a soft blow. "Go anyway!" Anette stood motionless, still perplexed, listening to August's re treating footsteps. No sooner had the apartment door closed after her than Larry was at his wife's side.

Darling, you re not going through with this perfectly mad scheme, are you?" He snatched her to him with such force that the towel fell from her hair. Not that he cared. He cradled her clammy wet head against his chest, paying no attention to the soggy spot it was making on his flannel robe. "Say you won't go," he whispered. "But I am going," she insisted, and drew back slightly.

He pulled her back into the same tight hold. "I could keep you from going if I held you like this. You couldn't go then." "A hammy speech, Larry. But in that case you couldn't get to your matinee, either. And this is Saturday, you know." His eyes flared and he released her.

"Must you be so darned matter-of-fact? You don't seem to realize what you are doing." He kicked a pair of his street shoes from under a chair; then slithered halfway across the floor. "Anette, you're breaking up our home. That's what you're doing." "And you're behaving like a child." She picked up the shoes and put them back under the chair. "What's got into you, anyway?" he demanded. "You're always talking about the all-important theater.

This happens to be all-important to me." She picked up a comb and began parting her hair, very low on the left side. Larry leaned on his elbow against the wall and watched her. "If you must work, Anette, we'll put you into 'Orchids Can Choke We can find something for you in it." The girl's laugh amounted almost to a hoot. "Put me in the cast when you won't allow me inside the back door. No thank you.

I prefer Ninetta." She plugged in an electric hair blower. "You're probably taking the part away from someone else. They wouldn't wait this long to cast Ninetta If they're starting rehearsals immediately and what a time to start production anyway. The whole idea doesn't make sense." Anette said with a none too sweet smile, "Why don't you let Bradford and Seymour worry about that? Besides, what if I am taking, a role away from someone? Everyone knows show business is cut-throat from spear holding to stardom, so I wouldn't be the first one." The unhappiness on her husband's face grew worse. "It somehow doesn't seem right when it is you." "Stop worrying.

The girl who was supposed to do Ninette got married." "So did you," Larry said calmly. The hand moving the hair dryer stopped in midair. Then, very i slowly, Anette unplugged the con- The Purdue university's 250-voice choir, Albert P. Stewart, director, completed plans Saturday for the presentation of the cantata, "The Holy City," in the hall of music Sunday afternoon, March 29, at 3 in the afternoon, under the auspices of the Purdue Student War Council.
