OU'VE all heard about the girl who plays a man like a fish on a line. Well, here's a case where that situation was reversed. Distinguished Adventurer Patricia Root, of New York city, has come here to teil the story of how a man once played ler like a fish on a line. What's more, Pat Root isn't a bit sore about it, As a matter of fact, she's darned grateful to the guy. She would have died if he hadn't—well—sort of made a sucker out of her. Fish lines can be pretty tough on fish, but this one meant life to Patricia. It happened on April Fool's day In 1933—and you can forget about the date, because there's no fooling about this adventure. Pat was visiting In the Virgin Islands, way down In the West Indlee, and as our story opens, she and five other people were starting out to go tarpon fishing. "But not tarpon fishing as most people picture It," says Pat. "We set out In a boat from the Island of St. Thomas to Thatch Cay, a small key about a mile off shore. But there we left the boat, for we were going to do our fishing from the shore." Pat Began Tarpon Fishing From a Rocky Ledge. Pat was Just fifteen at the time. The others were older. There was John and his wife, Maria, Carl, and two native Virgin Islanders, Wilmot and Pnul. They crossed the key to a spot where a high cliff ran right down Into the sea. There was a little ledge at the base of the cliff just t)lg enough for one person to fish from. And there they fished for the big, hundred-pound fighting tarpon, taking turns with the line down there on that narrow ledge. It was late afternoon before It came Pat's turn to fish. She clambered down to the ledge and was a bit frightened at the way the waves boiled up, almost to the spot where she was standing. Says she: "We should never have gone fishing that day. There was a ground sea running and a ground sea has a peculiar motion. None of us had noticed that the ocean was getting rougher. At least, I didn't, until I turned to look up at the others sitting on the top of the cliff and suddenly STAR DUST * jMovie • Radio * J**By VIRGINIA VALE*** J AMES MELTON, one of radio's sweetest singers, has finished his latest radio assignment and arrived in Hollywood to work in "Cain and Mabel." Before leaving New York he made inquiries as to his own Importance In the picture- wanted to know what sort of breaka he'd get on publicity, etc. He knew that Marlon Darles, being the star, would come first In the hearts of,:the publicity men for the company. A casual Inquiry revealed the fact that he'd come second, which was all right with him. But for the moment neither he nor his Informant recalled that Mary Boland was also cast for that picture and Miss Boland la pretty important, being an excellent actress and a favorite of movie fans ag well. Also—Mr. Melton Is, first of all, a singer. The script calls for a prizefighter as a hero. The question at the moment is—if yon take his singing away from Mr. Melton, will you have a prize-fighter? —*-Now It's Harold Lloyd who wants to make pictures in color. He has been making experiments on his own hook for the last two years, but is not yet quite sure whether or not color would add to the type of comedies that he makes.

IKTERMBDIATB TOPIC— What " " AK* eat found myself engulfed In water." She Was Washed Into the Shark Infested Sea. A huge wave had leapt up and flooded the ledge Pat was standing on. Before she could catch herself she was washed off Into the deep water. "For the moment," she says, "I didn't realize the terrible hopelessness of my position. I heard a splash beside me and saw Wilmot come to the surface. He had jumped from the top of the cliff. "Wilmot put an arm around me and swam with me toward the ledge. We reached it—clutched to It desperately—but neither of us could climb the sheer, precipitous side of the rock wall that led to it. It was only then that I realized that we couldn't get back on shore again." Again and again, Wilmot carried Pat to the cliffslde, but each time the dashing waves washed them back. Wllmot's strength was beginning to fall Carl Tossed the Strong Tarpon Line Into the Sea. him, but he still labored frantically. He knew what Pat didn't—that there were sharks In those waters and there wasn't a moment to lose. Fishing for Human Lives in Storm Swept Waters. At length, as he reached the ledge for the last time, a wave washed him upon It, but by that time he was too weak to pull Pat after him. She va's washed back out to sea while Wilmot, totally exhausted, lay on the edge until Carl came down and carried him to the top of the cliff. While Carl was carrying Wilmot back to the cliff top, John, down on he ledge, was trying to reach Pat's outstretched hands. A moment later another wave carried him off Into the water, too. The waves were now rising so high that It was dangerous to stand on the ledge. But Carl tried It. No sooner had he carried Wilmot to the top of the cliff than he started down again, this • time with a strong tarpon line In his hand. He tossed that Into the water. John caught It and looped It around Pat. "It got twisted around my neck," Pat says, "and for a moment I just hung there. A wave covered me and the line fell off. When I came up, I caught It again and twisted It around my finger." And then began the queerest bit of life-saving you ever saw. Dp on the ledge stood Carl, fishing rod In his hand, slowly bringing Pat In toward shore as If she were a fish. That line wasn't strong enough to sustain her weight, so Carl "played" her—reeling In as she rose on the crest of a wave, and letting the line out as she fell again. The Waves Finally Tossed Her Up to Safety. Minutes passed while this strange game went on. Pat began j wonder f Carl would ever get her ashore. She was sore and bruised where the waves had dashed her body against the rocks. The thin line wrapped around her hand was all but cutting her fingers In two. "I was beginning to bleed from my arms," she says, "when I heard John shout for help three times. Then there came a long silence. I didn't know It then, but John was done for. A shark had gotten him." More minutes passed. Pat was gasping for breath—ready to faint from the torture of that cutting line. Then Carl took a desperate chance. Shouting to her to keep up her courage he began to reel In the line. Inch by Inch she neared the ledge. It was almost within her reach—she had her hand on It Then, at the crucial moment, a wave came to her rescue and washed her bodily up on the ledge. Carl carried her back to the top of the cliff, bruised, exhausted and covered with blood. "Since that day," says Pat, "I have forgotten the real meaning of April Fool's day. To me It has become the anniversary of an awful tragedy." C—WND Servic*. a year, he thinks, or at least, two every three years. And with his latest one, "The Milky Way," as an example, that comes under the heading of good news. —*— Those radio programs of Blng Crosby's are rapidly becoming one of the best of the broadcasts; he is getting really big names, (or rather, his sponsor is getting them for him), and he makes a delightful master of ceremonies. When you see "The Great Ziegfeld" (and of course you'll see It!) you'll hear "A Pretty Girl Is Like a Melody" beautifully sung. Allan Jones sang it, while Stanley Morner was photographed as if he were singing it. Jones did not get screen credit, and Morner, who has a good singing voice, got credit but didn't sing. —*— The youngsters In Hal Roach's "Our Gang" started on a personal appearance tour a while ago, which has proved so successful that they will go on and on right through the summer. Not only children, but grown people as well, arrive for the first show and then stay right on till closing time. -L As if there hadn't been enough trouble over Mae West's latest, "Klondike Annie." the Chinese government Is objecting to It now, so Mae won't be a welcome visitor In the Orient. —*— Another picture that you'll want to see Is "I Married a Doctor"— which you'll recog nlze as Sinclair Lewis' great book, "Main Street" Josephine Hutchlnson and. Pat O'Brien have the leads, and do exceedingly well by them. However, here's a word of warning to young, unmarried doctors; don't take the girl you hope to marry to see this one, for Origin of April Fool Day Is Lost in Mists of Time The origin of the April Fool custom Is unknown, but It Is very ancient and Is thought to be a, relic of those once universal festivities held at the beginning of spring. A Hln- due celebration is the Hull festival at this time, the chief amusement being the sending of people on fruitless and foolish errands. The ancient Romans had a Feast of Fools, on February 17, when they played burlesque tricks. This was revived during the Middle ages and often celebrated even in the churches at the time of the old New Year festivities, March 25 to April 1 Some have found the origin of April Fool's day in the change from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar In France to 1564, when the New Year's day was moved S January l. U ta a,^^ that ™ of the old celebration on the Apr! date was then converted Into bur lesque. One pretended religious col nectlon ls found In the fact that the medieval miracle plays showed Jesus being sent for trial from ^ e official to another, It being held tha this accounts for the foolish er rands of this day, but this Is a explanatlon Pat O'Brien it may make them feel that 'doctors don't make very good husbands. —it- Staging a come-back In pictures was rather a hard thing for Dolores Costello Barrymore to do; she was a victim of the early days of talk- lea, when she was given such Inane speeches that audiences laughed at her, which cost her an opportunity she really deserved.
