Because of his pride, Joel firsl refuses lo permit Janet la continue working and then conceals the fact that he has been playiner the role of a gigolo at a cocklail bar because lie can find nothing else. Joel is elated when Janet tells him of his chance for a screen test. He does not know that the card was intended for her --not for him. Now Go on With the Story: CHAPTER 8 "KILL THE baby, Joe!" Janet, sitting in the shadows back of the row of chairs, each with a name on it, started slightly when the man sitting in the chair marked Mr. Arnhelt shouted thaf Then she sat back and sgniled. There were no babies in the corner of the room t h a t was obviously a set. The electrician was setting lights. A baby, then, was a light. "Hell, no! Can't you ever get a sunlight effect without using number 2?" Arnhelt's voice was Joud and had a sharp, annoyec edge. Janet knew that he was a great director- and that Mr. Jackson had called to him as he went through the corridor in the office building to ask him if he'd mine making a test, that someone named Hank Dive hadn't arrived She couldn't decide whether she was glad that Arnhelt was going to do it because Arnhelt w a s j a r nee director or whether she was sorry because he seemed to be upset. One way or another, it was sure to affect Joel. But Joel didn't seem to be as affected as she was, she thought happily. She'd spilled his coffee when -she was trying to pour it t h a t morning. She'd deliberately taken oft her good gloves and taken out a pair with hole in the thumb. She'd made no sense in her conversation but Joel had whistled in the bath, eaten a hearty breakfast and been as unmoved as though a screen test were no more than an ex r ery day occurrence. Maybe it's his movie experience of the last few weeks, she thought with kindly sarcasm. He'd carried off the brief interview in Jackson's office with aplomb. Jackson had studied his face with close scrutiny as he shot questions at Joel. Questions about his theatrical background, about a technic that was beyond her. He had hardly given her a glance. She was glad that she hadn't been movie struck. Then a page had taken them rough the corridor, through great doors marked silence in huge letters and led them over a maze of cables on the floor, past lights that looked gargantuan in the shadowy hugeness of the studio. Someone had given Janet a chair on the fringes of the light that lighted the set and Joel had gone off to the dressing room with a make-up man who was clad like a physician in a long white apron. Janet thought: I know what it must be like to be going to be a father. I wish I could pace up and down. Then Joel came into the range of light. Joel looked as he always did, a little unhappy, a little wistful yet entirely at ease with a poise that was essentially-masculine. No, Joel didn't look exactly the same, in the eerie green lights, his skin appeared to be yellow and the red on his lips was purple. His hair was untidy and Janet wondered if she should tell him. but there was no way. Joel had forgotten her there in the shads, "We're waiting for Miss Ingoldsby," the director 'said curtly and paid no more attention to Joel than if he had been an office boy sent to him with a message. Joel walked over to him and they laked for a few minutes. Janet couldn't saying. hear what they were Iti a little while Joel came over to her and sat in a chair at her side. "What did lie say?" she whispered excitedly. "He told me w h a t I'm lo do. Guess what?" There was a twinkle in his eye but he looked uncomfortable. "Judging from the effect of the make-up in that light, I'd say Dracula. What did he say?" \ "I've got to make love to some dame named Ingoldsby," Joel answered disgustedly. "Then, listen, lover," Janet bent toward him. "Why don't you do that bit of business you gave your bride the night we went dancing nt the Starlit Roof? Remember? You didn't say anything but you looked up at Hie stars, then you looked at my eyes and pretended you couldn't see the stars any more. You wore a red rose in your lapel and you took it off and looked at it, then you touched my mouth and threw a w n y the rose. Don't you remember the orchestra was playing and I said, 'Isn't the music lovely?' and T stopped speaking and you said you heard no music except when I spoke. Oil, do that, Joel!" "Is nothing sacred to you?" he muttered wtih assumed fury- "Listen, little girl, when I take lessons in acting from my girl, I'm going to quit the acting business.' "Ali right, you there!" Arnhelt calling'him. It was A pale, blonde, lifeless sort of ijirl said in a business like way, 'Taking it standing or silting?" "Dick, move that bench over io the railing. Ingoldsby, you sit on the bench looking up nt him. Now, Mr. . . . er ... you".--he gestured toward Joel. "You arc la 1k- ng to her from the other side ot the rail. You're a young society man. She's a debutante. You've just met at the dance and you're falling in love with her. She's cold to it Give us the Robert Montgomery technique. Okay, Joe?" Janet thought: I won't look. But she couldn't help herself. The set was flooded with bright lights. Joel stood at (he railing staring at the girl. He began to speak . . . "Don't stare! ;Put a little life into it!" Joel touched the girl on her shoulder. She swung her eyes up and Joel smiled. He leaped over ·the rail and sat beside her. He reached for her hand. Janet heard the director sigh resignedly. He was bored. "Joel," Janet heard herself shout, "the stars!" Joel gave no sign (hat he heard. The director turned his head toward Janet who made herself as small as possible. In that moment Joel relaxed and his slow smile began at one corner of his mouth. He put his hands i n t o his pocket and looked down at the girl.commanding her glance. Then his eyes went up to where the heavens would have been and he looked down into her eyes quickly. In that small bit there was no doubt o£ what his pantomime meant. He wore a flower in his button hole. He took it out and touched the girl's lips with his finger. Then he threw the flower away. Miss Ingoldsby got up. "The music is begun," she said as though Janet had given her a cue. Joel stood at her back, his hand hovering shyly at her shoulder as though he dared not touch it. "The music is here," he said. "Please don't take it away." Janet say that Arnhelt had moved forward, his figure alert, his interest engaged. "Cut," he said calmly, all iho quality of annoyance gone from his voice. "Stay here, please, we'll take that bit of the stars and the flower in a close-up." Janet relaxed. Then it was over. Joel came straight to her. "It was grand," she said. . "Let you know," Arnheit said briefly but he smiled cordially. He left the set immediately. Joel had little to say on the subway ride back to town. It was nearly four when they got there. He kissed Janet at the stop where they both got off. "I've got to get to my . . . back to my other job " he said. "But I'll see you at the usual time." He never spoke of the movie job any more. If he guessed t h a t Janet knew he had not been working in a movie, he made no offer of any explanation. Janet thought how strange the working of his mind must have been that he would accept it that she never asked about it. "Don't work too hard," she said _ * J l l l v *'.CI*iiiQ t r / M i i - ^ A 1 r · -f . ' _ ' . ' '-L *·, tffl lightly. "Save yourself for news from the studio." "Oh, that? We probably won't liear for weeks i f ' e v e r . I know what these things mean." His tone was as light as hers but she knew what the waiting would mean to him. And she knew that if she didn't love liirn so much, she would have wished that the answer would not be favorable. Down in her heart she didn't want Joel in me movies. But it was his happiness and not her own. That was the only thing that mattered. (To Be Continued) AOY Must Have Made Mistake m Figures, Yankee Slingei- Decides. HAMILTON, Bermuda, (UP) -Vernon (Lefty) Gomez, one of the highest paid pitchers in baseball, promptly returned unsigned his 1937 contract to the New York Yankees Friday because it called for a salary o£ $7,500, a reduction of $12,500 from his 193G contract. "They must have made a mis- lake, sending this to me," Gome* said. "I was expecting a cut, but not one o£ more t h a n a half. Ot course I'm going to hold out." Gomez had a bad season in 193fi, when he completed a two-year contract signed in 1335 calling for $20,000 annually.
