HELEN MARKINSON phoned Janet, still in bed in her New York apartment, to join her at th Westchester Biltmore. "Tuesday?" Janet clutched the telephone with her Jeft hanc and reached with hex- right for th little leather book on the bedside table. She found it, thumbec through the pages and, settling baclc on her pillows, she said into the instrument, "It sounds like fun, Helen. Do you know I've never been to the Westchester Biltmore? What are you going to wear?" Janet's maid brought in hei breakfast tray and set the little table legs up on the bed. Jane wrinkled her nose as the appetizing scent of bacon and buttery toast assailed her nostrils. She made little signs to Katie that she would be finished with her conversation in a moment and to pour her coffee. "All right, 1 ' she said, "then it's settled. By the way, since yoi. want me to get a man for myself would you really mind very much if I brought my husband? It's such a long time since I've been out with him, I think it would be rather nice." "All right, davling," H e l e n Markinson's voice c a m e over clearly. "Be sure and put it in the book, the date is the, 26th. And you might remember, your husband is no stranger to me. I met him at ,MabeI Newbold's a couple of weeks ago. Please bring him." After Janet had put the telephone back on its stand and replaced it on the table, she discovered that she had lost her appetite for her breakfast after all. She sipped -her coffee, nibbled at a piece of crisp toast and, in a little while, sent the tray with its u n ' t o u c h e d delicacies back. Strangely enough, she found that the morsel of,toast had stuck in her throat. . Because there had already been a l u m p there. She - bin-rowed down into her pillows and beat her palms on the softness beneath her. The ache in lier throat, never dissolved into tears; it became a hard pressure baclc of her eyes that were momentarily stormy with a kind of desperation. I almost escaped, she -thought, but I can't get away. She was thinking of the pattern if her lite. She was thinking of :he luncheons she gave, and attended, at "the smart spots;" the casual way she fitted in appointments with the hairdresser, the nasseuse, the dressmaker, in with ier business hours. She was think- ng of the "dates" she had to fill n her time. She was thinking of .he expensive clothes that did so much to make her. a frequently photographed woman.;; Reading from left to right, Mrs. Spencer Dean, Mrs. Joe3 Paynter, wife of the popular screen actor, Mr. Colby Longworth and Mr. Spencer Dean St the El Morocco. Or-Mrs. Joel Paynter, wife of the noted stage and screen actor, was one o£ the smartest dressed women at th? opening of the United Hunts Meet. Or-Mra. Joel Paynter, wife of the stage ;-,nd screen star, snapped on .ier daily departure for her office. Mrs. Payntei- believes that.every woman married to a career man should have a career of her own. Mrs. Paynter is engaged in an ambitious business having to do with merchandising and advertising. "Everything but the funny papers," she said alound. Oh, Mrs. Joel Paynter was very much the pert, chic young matron! An ideal wife for a matinee idol. You seldom saw her with her hus- oand but you were aware that .here was a Mrs. Paynter. The rumors were that she was important socially since you generally saw ier name connected with other names in the social register, albeit :he Paynters were not in that exclusive little volmue and never would be. Mrs. Paynter attended the polo matches at Westbury. Mrs. Payner WKS present at the opening of 3elmont. She is usually to be mind at the night clubs on important occasions. Yes, sometimes she is with Mr. Paynter. They make a very charming couple. I wonder where she gels her hair done. I wonder if she has her clothes made. She wears black and vhit.2 so smartly. . That was the Mrs. Paynter that the world saw. That was the Mrs. ·Paynter that Joel Paynter saw. Not the one t h a t Russell Bede knew. Not the Janet that she really was. Burying her face in her pillows lo hide the desperate expression in her ryes from herself, Janet hated the girl that people saw. I don't like this chromium room of mine. I don't want that black,taffeta-garbed maid. I loathe going to the hairdresser and having my hair dressed high on my head because the. waistline of my evening dress demands an empire headdress. She'didn't say these things but she was working out her rebellion thinking them. I don't want to live in a pent- house. I want to live in a house- with a back yard that has . a clothesline in it and geraniums in. the windows. I want a garbage can that I can press my foot to and have the lid fly up. I want to mix things with my own hands and stick a hatpin in a cake to see if it is done. I want to darn Joel's so:.*, I want to sit beside him in the movies and play bridge with him and the young couple who lives across the road. I want to tell the girl across the road what my husband said about the election. I want to go to market and pleasantly debate about whether we should have spinach or carrots, I want -- "1,' truffles and Pate de . fois gras and caviar by the pound. I've got sables and diamonds but I haven't even got a hatpin," she said aloud. · The maid popped her head in the door and said, "Mrs. Paynter, Mr. Paynter left his studs in his shirt. Shall I take them out?" "No, I'll do it," Janet reached for the shirt. The studs were black pearls. She -sighed deeply. Black pearls! A man who wore black pearls couldn't ever be expected to wear sox his wife had darned. "Draw my bath, Katie," she said, "and use the pine salts today please." In her fragrant bath she tried to relax, erase the furrows that were crinkling thesmooth surface of hpr mind with which she faced the day. Slie tried'to think of Helen Markinson's party. She'd wear her white creep trimmed with the sable bands. Or perhaps she'd wear the ice blue satin arid her silver fox cape. Oh, what difference did it make what she wore! Angrily, she let the water down the drain and hurriedly dried herself. ' She dressed carelessly and was sorry at luncheon that she had done so. She was lunching with some friends who were east from Hollywood. One of them was Har~ ; riet Casey, now editor of Screen View magazine. Harriet was her usual sharp self, full of gossip and leading questions. She said something about Crjris jaynor touching heights un- qualed in filmdom and Janet knew that she was speaking directly to her, asking her the unspoken question: When was Joel returning to Hollywood to rein- tate himself with his public? Janet was : amazed to discover- that she had been thinking so lit:le of Joel's career that she had not considered it. She didn't. even know what Joel was planning to do. His play, was still playing to a capacity audience but it must surely close by summer. .Slie had. takeniit ;for granted '· that when the season was over, [hey v/ould return and Joel's op- lion would be picked up. He was still Joel, wasn't he? And Hollywood had skyrocketed him to fame. Surely his place should be waiting for him. But his place wasn't! That she knew. Chris Gaynor was Joel's successor. Janet -shook off the chill that she ftlt with her knowledge that anything can happen in Hollywood and the chances were it wouldn't DB good. It was just that Joel ladn't been talking about it lately ind shp now read something into his silence that wasn't there. She did not want to go back tn Hollywood. Nor did she want to continue living in New York as she was. But she had a longing to go back to Hollywood because she wanted Joel to reign again. ^he left the luncheon party and went directly to a t e l e p h o n e . She'd have to talk to Joel about it.
