Five other members of the rchestra had preceded them in another car. There were no witnesses to the accident, but persons who assisted in pulling the car from the water with a negr-by rancher's tractor, said there was evidence a tire blew out as the car was about 15 feet from the bridge, forcing the car out of control and over the bridge railing into the water. It landed, badly damaged, upside clown in nine feet of water. Secrch for the three had been under way since early morning, » /hen their parents became wor- icd when they failed to arrive home.

HOLLYWOOD -- Brian Aherne stood there with his arms encir- the lovely Merle Oberon, There was an exchange of soft I words. The scene lasted for about j fifteen minutes. Then the director said, "I think you'd better do It again." "With pleasure," said Mr. Aherne. "The pleasure is all mine." So for fifteen more minutes Mr. Aherne stood holding Miss Oberon in his arms and whispering sweet words that came from the movie script. fc Again the director said, "I think ; P'ou'd better do it ?gain." "Gladly," smiled Mr. Aherne. For forty-five minutes we sat on a high stool behind the camera and watched Mr. Aherne and Miss Oberon. The love scene for "First Comes Courage" was so convincing it was d i f f i c u l t to imagine that this was acting. Not the real thing at rll. For, as you know, Mr. Aherne is jiily married to Joan .Fontaine. s Oberon is happily married to lexander Kordo. One hour later Mr. Aherne joined up on a companion stool and sipped his cup of four-in-thc-aftertioon- tea. "What do you think of war marriages?" \vc asked. "Hasty ones." "They are all right," Brian said. "Look at me and my l i t t l e wife. I think wo knew each other two weeks, or maybe it was three. And we arc certainly a happy pair." "Do you think you should have waited for a church wedding?" we asked. "Rather than an eiopement --which doesn't bring rice and old shoes-and certainly, few wedding presents.' 1 "But we did have a church wed- Bins all right," said Mr. Aherne, h?ppily. "I don't know how Joan managed it nil. She's wonderful, that's all I can say. Simply wonderful! For we had a church wedding with bridesmaids and flowers and everything. She knew I didn't know much about weddings so she even went shopping for the gifts for the ushers and the best man and the bridal psrty. A most amazing capable little woman. She attended to everything. Wonderful to have a wife who attends to all of the details--ami leaves a man free m the bother. Yes, she's wonderful," he sighed. "I certainly don't think people should wait forever to get msr- ricd. I think it works out right well. We've certainly not done any repenting at leisure--because we married hastily." Mr. Aherne said that he and his wi'fe were about to go on a vacation, up to the Russian river country in northern California. "Joan is going to make "Frenchmen's Creek" up there for Paramount, rll go along to keep her company nee this picture finishes this f-eek. Lucky, eh, what?' 1 Mr. Aherne was feeling very lucky about it all. A vacation for two months for Paramount plans a two-month location on the Russian river. And that's Hollywood! ELECTED ...
