He deliberately squeezed all emotion from it to keep it from M- Iroying him. "It's hard to believe now," Jeff said, "but I was in love with Avis when I married her. And I wanted to make our marriage last I thought I knew how, too. The bright boy from Brooklyn, that was me. I knew all the answers. Work together! Tiiat was it. Never give other actresses or directors a chance to come between us. "I had an attorney friend draw up an agreement and Avis and I I began to understand » lot of things. Jeff wai a good director His pictures made money. He didn't have to worry about whether or not his contract was going to be renewed by the studio While Avis would have hit the skids long ago if her career hadn't been tied in with his. Ensy to see why she wouldn't divorce him As ong as she was married to him the studio had to give her leading part in his pictures Bu "But you could divorce her Jeff. I couldn't keep all the eagerness out of my voice. "You'd have plenty of grounds. | 1EFF shook his head. -I can't ' divorce her, if she wants to contest it YOU see—I left her first the signed it. As long married to each other, we were I was to , o direct every play she starred Inand she was to have the feminine lead m every play I directed Fixed it so that neither of us could sign a contract to work in any picture unless th« other wai included in the deal. Any studio had to take both of us— or neither. Or face some pretty expensive litigation. It was an air-light agreement, all right." Jeff laughed. "That was to keep us together— and happy forever It lasted three months. Oiir living together, I mean.- And I haven't been either." , angel I never answered that. The door of the office opened without warning and Liz Leyden oozed Into the room. He ignored me and gave Jeff a disagreeable look. "Well, you've fouled things up haven't you?" Jeff looked at him but dicin't answer. He continued to look at him. It was as if | le didn't see him or hear him, cither. "Have I? ' he said finally. "Have 1?" His face changed. He got to his feet. 'that Vm • S °' d slowly ' straightened out." ''Look here, Havcrson," Liz decided to be conciliatory. "You know Avis was only blufling." heel.

Liz, of course, was undisturbed oy any such hypsei sensitivity He said bluntly and mallor-oMactlY "Well, it's up to us." I asked him shortly what was up to us. He said to put on Ihe peacemaking art I still didn't see why it was our affair. This was strictly be- fween Jeff and Avi«. And 1 was beginning to gel an idea. It Avis stood pat on her refusal to play the part of the wife unless she played the sister also, it would mean the breaking of the contract between her and Jeff: and if she lost the hold on him which made him her meal ticket, she'd divorce him fast enough. And Jcrt would be free to marry again. U it wai T IZ read my mind as an open book. "And don't get any screwy ideas, sister," he said. "Avis will never let this part in technicolor get away from her. Or Jeff cither She'll stall and scrap »nd make difficulties until everybody is in an uproar, and then she'll turn up at the sludio sweet and meek and ready to go on with her part And the contract will jtill hold! ««e She's done it before. And she can sic her attorneys onto Jeff and cost him a lot of dough If doesn't lei her play the part of the sister, too. You see, it's already been assigned to her." "1 still don't see what we can do about it." "I think we can fix it so that Avis will lei Jell cast Narney in the sister part—which is what he really wants. And then everybody will be happy again." lie >aused hinking it out as he went along 'Whnl about you inviting Avi« and Art out to your place for a few drinks this evening? I'll com. along and we'll hash over the script and make Avis think we've re-written the part of the wife for icr and built it way up to here—" Liz gestured at his chin. "That way she won't feel she's losing face when she agrees to let Jeff cast Narney as the sister." 1 was beginning lo see why the studio heads valued Liz Leyden. He was liltle Mr. Fix-it.
