Rubber Tires Bill .~ The so-called Rubber Tires Bill, in: troducecl by Senator Kllendcr of Lou', isiana on behalf of himself ami. six • • other solons, is not very, dramatic in ; humdrum legal phraseology, buljl'is ! wo!l worth reading beyond its inuoen- • ous formal description as "A bill to *' provide for- llic effective inspection, | conseivation, and distribution of inolor- { vehicle tires, and for other purposes." f Thai bill-drafting bromide "and for '. othei pin poses"" usually is just an iii| surance clause, lo make certain that J slovenly titling shall not defeat the IctJ- '. islatwc" intent. In. this case, however, [ it is the heart, soul and body of the ; bill. The "other purpose"—actually, the ; sole purpose foi which the bill was ! drafted—ib to diive all Lire mamifae- • turers, gasoline refiners, automobile • makers and chain stores out of the tire • selling and repairing business, under » penally of ?5000 fine, ia year in prison, ' or both.' [ -The bill would direct the rubber ad• ministrator to'piovidc that periodical ' inspections of lues shall be made "only I by independent tire dealers"; that new, ', rebuilt 1 , veti called and recapped tires, [ and all "casings and tubes and camel! back for'iecapping and retreading, can | be. sold and delivered "only by and ' through independent, lire dealers."

In Hollywood UNHAPPY LANDING CHAPTER XVI TJETH had jum'ptd impulsively. During those first sickening seconds ot the drop, while she was fighting to keep from pulling the rip cord too soon, she felt nothing except the sensation that her insides were zooming upward— much the same sensation, only on a larger scale, that a high swi would have given her. Then she was jerked and jolted almost insensate. Her head was thrown back and she saw the parachute billow out, then momentarily collapse, then billow out again. She wondered if she were visible in the moonlight. The moon was very low now, and it did light up the ocean or the Islam quite .-is it had several hours he- fore. The fantastically exciting and active night was Hearing an end. Beth wondered if then would be a dawn for her. Down, down she went. Sin heard no noise—only the rush o air past her head. She fell cole almost numb. The island was rushing up a her very fast. It was a mirael that Brit hnd found it, and would be more of a miracle i she landed on it safely. • • • '•'-'•i CHE could not decide what por tion she was about to hit. TT contours were deceptive froi aloft. She had expected to be ab' to recognize the cove and th headquarters area, but she coul not.. She thought she was only a fm feet above the island now. Od how at first her progress ha seemed so fast, then so slow, an so fast again! The ground as coming toward her in a ter- flc rush of shadowy vegetation. She tried to look at her watch, ut could not see the dial. She ished she had looked before she umped—it would be something be ublc to know just how fast me was going. Brit could not ave more than an hour's gasoline •ft. Beth thought she heard a shout rom below, then decided it was er imagination. Then she hit. She struck a treetop first- palm—and the points of the ronds jabbed into her llesh. For- unalely the niyht was almost vindless, only a faint predawn rceze being present near the sur- acc. Then she bounced down through iranches and vines and leaves to he earth. The parachute slruggled against he weight of her body and the entanglement of the branches as he breeze caught it and opened il 'ull for one last sail, then it col- npscd over a low trcelop. Belli was dragged against the bole of a stubby palm. The wind was mocked out of. her and she lay there for several minutes, semiconscious. When Beth fully regained her senses, it seemed that hours had passed. Nothing appeared real. With difficulty, she fixed her mind on her whereabouts and on her experiences during the night. What brought reality to mind first was a pain in her ankle. Beth disengaged herself from the parachute. Where she was— except that presumably she was on the right island, and the correctness o£ that presumption depended completely on the correct- ness of Bret's naviftUoB->4fae did] not know. A* / • , .y. * • •_,..... ; TF she was at the far end of the! island from headquarters, she ; had a long walk to find, help, unless she could attract the atfen-' lion o£ an outpost. If she did at-! tract attention, she might be shot immediately. Beth arose and tried to walk,' and sank back down again imme-; dialely. The hurt ankle would: not bear her weight. Beth removed her shoe, tore a length o£ cloth from her skirl, and wrapped It around the ankle. The pressure, of the wrapping braced the ankle' anil somewhat relieved the pain.- She heard noises in the jungle. She remembered that Brit had fold her there were all sorts of tropical animals in that jungle— -~ things that crept and things that crawled, arid other things full of venom and poison. . She called oul. "Help!" Then, nol because she was frightened— • for her mind was too full of Brit's predicament for fright lo enter— she screamed. She hoped that a scream might carry farther than a simple outcry. Her shout unnerved her, for it was answered by a thousand other screams. She could not dccida whether she had startled all sorts of jungle denizens, or whether there were that many echoes. > ; She called "Help!" again. It was to no avail. She must make- headway. She wished she could hear Brit's plane motors. Sh? needed reassurance that her mission slili had a purpose. But it he had been that close, he would have drawn lire. : As though to give terror lo her thoughts, she heard the unmis> takable voice of an antiaircraft gun far down Ihc island, barking viciously at a target aloft. ' She knew how excellent was the marksmanship of those American Coast Artillerymen. Her heart sank. Then she heard an'- olher noise. It was of something crawling a few paces away in thf impenetrable jungle. -'-a*?- •' To plenty can happen. i Sim"; blond Nelson Eddy has a It's Sam Jaffc's slory about Hie brown wig in "The Phantom of the quickie -producer who was told by Opera"; (Jlaude Ruins goes gray in his art director that they would the same film; Oreer Garsoii is need eight gondolas for a sequence gray haired in "Madame Curie." an c | in Iheir next film.
