I didn't like the idea of playing up to Avis, but I knew how Jeff's heart was set on getting rid of that double role business. "It might work. I'll call Avu, now, and invit«.her . . ." Liz shook hi» head. -Leave that to me. I'll have her there this evening." That war. th« way we planned it. It was wh«n I was crossing Hollywood Boulevard on my way horn* that I remembered the lipstick Ravelu was to have ready for me. I looked at the address on the card she had given m«. It was only a short distance away, so I turned down th« boulevard •nd drove until 1 came to it It happened to be closing time and Ravella was locking the front door of the shop when I came up to it. She recognized me, which was almost more than 1 did for her. She had changed into a dark street suit and her hair was simply done under a plain but smart little hat. "Ah—Miss Donn." "Yes. I stopped to get my lipstick. I'm afraid I'm a little late." She held the door open for me to enter. "That's all right. It will only take a moment to get it for you." We were alone in the shop. She left me wailing at the counter and disappeared through a door at the rear of the shop and came back in a moment with • tray holding a number of .ipstick molds, each one bearing a small paper tag. She looked them over, pickec one out T'ow what kind of a case do you want. Miss Donn?" She indicated the lipstick cases on display under the glass top of the counter. My eyesight is very good and I read the price tags plainly I chose a plain gold one. "I ! ^ EAR they're making changes in the casting of your play " she said conversationally. • The studio grapevine -erUiinly worked fast. I thought. Evidently everyone connected with the slu- dio knew what had happened that afternoon. ,-: "Mr. Haverton wants to," I admitted. Ravella'i bright ey« flicked over my face. "Wants to you mean, it isn't anally decided then I understood ..." If thii was goini to ^t repeated she might u well have the straight of it "Avis Vaughn is kicking up a row about it," t •*- plained. "Naturally she doesn't want to give up the double role All the big stars have been doing double roles lately, Bette Davis Olivia de Havilland. And that's just the reason Haverson doesn't want it. He thinks it has been overdone and that the public is tired of the trick." "Oh . ." "We're having a little conference at mj house tonight, Avis and Art and Mr. Haverson and Liz Leyden We're going to try and work out compromise. Leyden thinks we can." "You mean get Mr. Haverson to give up the idea of changing the cast—and having someone else play the part of the sister?" Ravella's face was bent as she fitted he molclec lipstick into the case had selected. There it wai again. Everyone •o mm that Avii would (tt h«r way. "No- I said shortly doubt t he'll change his mino about that He'i been wanting another actresF for the Bart of the sister from the beginning, and now that he's found one perfect (or the part. ' don't think he'f suing to change his mind. We're going to have to convince Avis Vaughn that the part of the sister Isn't worth bickering about- It's unimporlanl renlly." "Is—it?" "Definitely." J^AVELLA had finished inserting the [ipstick into the cate. She wrapped it now and handed it to me and I paid her for it Then as 1 turned to go slie hailed me. "Wait just a minute—would you do a favor for me?" "What is It?" "I have lipstick here'for Miss Vaughn. She always wants a new one when she starts a picture Thinks it briiigf her luck." She laughed lightly. "I suppose she is blaming me for all today's trouble —becau«e ; was to have had it ready for her yesterday and didn" It would save me a trip out to her apartment if you'd give it to her. Tonight, I mean." , "Of course I will." She took a small package out of her purse and gave It to me and thanked me. It was 6 o'clock when 1 reached lome. Without bothering to change 1 went down to the kitchen and whipped up an egg omelet *nd made a pot of coffee.
