MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, FEBRUARY" 16 · 1937 FIVE I f I 1,- BANK ON THIS WARDROBE A S AN INVESTMENT in appearance the depositor above has done all right for himself. Strictly a "townie," from the rounded crown of his bowler (derby to you) to the tips of his black wax calf shoes, he's "right;" Color might even show his double breasted overcoat and sharkskin suit as a warm brown, and still the black foot and head pieces would be correct. His gloves are fawn hogskin, although he must hove had one off to get the cigarette from his case. Red-spotted is his black wool tie, white the starched collar, and solid color (pick one yourself) his shirt. Even money says his shirt cuffs are of the double fold French variety, with gold links. The teller behind the bars would probably be promoted to cashier if he wore an abdominal holder-inner. The combination of peaked lapels with a single-breasted two-button suit is a goad one, especially wrien the fabric is of hard finish such as sharkskin, A faint overplaid on a rugged tweed is here shown in a roomy double-breasted ulster. When the snow or slush really piles up above m e r e rubber height, zip into a snug fitHng pair of lined r u b b e r g a - loshes. Almost a n y solid color is smart w h e n the glove is rib knit and tapered f o r warmth at the wrist. What l o o k s like a shoe here is in reality one piece of rubber, embossed w i t h convent! o n a I s h o e design. The Glorified Rubber. Silk and wool u n i t e f o r warmth in the paisley square. For those who want length in their mufflers we suggest a very soft cashmere in yellow. ESQUIRE will answer all questions on men's fashions.

FORGET READ THIS FIKST: In Hollywood following- an ingenious - maneuver on the part of his young wife, Janet, .loci Tayn- ler, second-rate Broadway actor, makes screen history in the course of eight months. Tame and fortune arc theirs following one outstanding picture in which Joel plays iin important character part. lie obtained the role because .Ta- net cultivated Hie right people and Vcruoii Chester, a leading director. Denied a baby because the studio frowns on domestic notes in building up Joel as the popular American lover, Janet finds happiness cludinsr her, despite everything money can buy, because she has nothing more to do. Janet discovers that 33,000 a week melts rapidly livinff as they now do. After buying a small group theater in Cape Cod as a lark, Joel promptly forgets about it. Janet goes cast alone for a visit. Because Joel is not with her, by the time Janet has reached New York, it is widely rumored that a divorce was imminent. Now Go on With the Story: CHAPTER 22 "Oh, Martha, not you! Surely you don't believe it?" "I just wanted to know, Janet. I'm glad to see that you haven't. I didn't have very high hopes thai that marriage would last. 1 was afraid it wouldn't give you enough, I'm glad to see that it has. Now we'll talk about something else." "No, just a minute, Martha, I want to say this, that my marriage has given me everything I want. If there was ever any question of one o£ us not giving anything/ it was. that I had nothing to givn lo Joel." Even Martha Colby, the one person in the world who knew Janet best, could never have persuaded Janet otherwise. Could never have shown her that she was · the one who brought full hands to her marriage. It was as well, for woman's, place is to believe is Janet did. Martha and Janet hired a ear to take them from Boston lo Grannis which was a few miles out on the Cape and they arrived the next day. They found rooms that were cool and fragrant in a little Cape Cod cottage with the inevitable New Yale Prexy WHEN Janet closed the door of. i big blown bottles on tlie lawn, her drawing room after inviting hooked rugs in the t.alls and hol- Kelcey "ot the New York office' : to leave, she found thai all her bright anticipation had fled. Her fingers trembled a little as she smoothed her hair and drew on her hat. She regretted speaking to him so harshly and realized with a little pang, that she wasn't and never would be an entity. Joel and she could not be separated in the public mind. But they had separated them already. A divorce! The idiots! Resentment rose high in her and she wanted to scream to the world to leave her and her marriage alone. But she would never scream because it would do no good. For the first time she knew the power of public thought and she wished that she had never left Joel. She opened the door and called Mr. Kelcey back. "I'm sorry," she said, "I really didn't mean to blow up but what you said was rather a shock. I realize, of course, that the gossipers would slarl something like thai. You'll have to think up something for me to say. I'm really here just on a litllc vacation lo see my old friends aiVl I'm going back to the coast as quickly as can." She. said something like that to the reporters herself when her train got to New York. She tried to say a few words to Martha after that lady had gathered her into her capable arms but it wns some time before she and Martha were alone in a taxieab. Janet had to pose with a brilliant smile and her jewel case clutched in her hands on the platform, standing beside her luggage. She hact to smile and smile reassuringly and protest that she was cast only for a short time. She had to pose writing a telegram to Joel. She had to do all the meaningless things thai would assure Ihe public she was a bride lorn from Hie arms of her bridegroom And then Martha had said thai Janet looked very smart and Janet had said thai Martha looked the same as ever. When they decidcc thai they would go to Martha'f hotel for a bath and fresh clothes and then catch an evening train lo Boston, Martha said, "Is it true Janet? Have you left Joel?"

"I adore it," Janet said first hint;. "Oh, if only Joel were here! can't wait to see the theater. 3 ' She had told Martha about buy- ng the little theater. The little theater was more like i toy than an investment, Martha old her when Leslie CarJeton, the iclor-rnanager, had taken them over it and returned tliem to the cottage where ' he insisted that hey repack immediately and plan .6 return to his own cottage on he Dunes where Mrs. Carleton lad anticipated their visit, "But i- n't it a fascinating toy!" Janet had retorted. It was a fascinating toy. And a money-making one. For the records showed that it had established a reputation on the Cape .md residents were flocking in Irom neighboring colonies and filling it to capacity every night. It was called The Red Barn for ; good reason. It had been a capacious old barn before the first owners had taken it over and converted it into a theater by pulling in liers oE quaint boxes and a gallery with Sunday -school benches p a i n t e d maple color and covered wilh hard cushions upholslercd in bright turkey red. C31d ships' lanterns lined the walls and the curtains ot the nol- very-large stage had been painted with wood block figures in keeping with the style of the quaint background. The stage was small but the mechanical equipment w a s superior to what might have been expected of an experimental theater. So was the entertainment. The year thai Joel boughl the thealer was the one that the little theaters were beginning to attract attention. Broadway stars wcrc'agcr to try out new roles for audience reaction. Ambitious young playwrights found many an opportunity to make an auspicious debut through the medium of the small theaters. Productions were ambitious in theater if not in scenic effects. Janet was surprised lo find Ilial the evening performance--Ihe first one she attended--was attended by jin appreciative, discriminating audience dressed in evening c'lothes i£ nol in Ihe ermines and diamonds that she was later to associate with a New York audience. She sat there in a corner box and thought: This is ours! She was enchanted. She adored Grannis and had it not been for the one small thing that Joel was so far away from her, she would have felt that the weeks she spent in the little New England village were the happiest she had ever known. Life there was keyed lo the tempo t h a t had been part of her abandoned dream. She lay in her narrow, little white bed in the early morning and absorbed ;\\\ Ihe tiuiet comfort of normal life about her. She could smell the coffee Mary Carleton was m a k i n g in the breakfast room and hear her as she called to her husband j lo pick some lettuce in the garden svhere he was working. From across the hall bils of conversation between the small three-year-old Mary and her nursemaid fell on Janet's delighted ears. The nursemaid was the only luxury the Carleton household could afford and she was a necessity. Mary Carleton was the wardrobe mistress and scenic designer of the theater. That meant that she selected the costumes the stock cast put together from its combined wardrobes. Also that she borrowed everything from wicker furniture to Grecian pi!1 lars from the all-too-willing members ot the colony when such things were needed to complete the scenic effects. Her jobs took a lot of her time but, somewhere in between, she found time to knit a sweater for Leslie, to cook delicacies for her family and guests, to keep Ihe little cottage spick and span and to make sure that there were no weeds in the garden. Summer was her heaven. In the autumn when the colonists had gone and the thealer was closed, she would go back to her family in Boston and wait until Leslie got a job in New York--if he got one. Janet knew that. Knew all the uncertainties ot Mary Carleton's life yet Mary surprised her, when looking up from drying the wet litlle body of the rfttive young Mary, she found Janet looking at her with tears in her eyes. "Bui Janet!" she said and sat back on her heels. "I think I'm Kelting hay fever," Janet said hastily and pretended to sneeze. (To Be Continued).
