The body of his mother. Mrs. Lena Mae Wartnik, was found an hour later in a hotel room in Hcrmsa Beach, 30 miles away. "My husband is as guilty of our deaths as if ho did it," a note ninncd over the baby's body said. It was addressed to nolice. I Garment manufacturer Snm. H. Wartnik, 45, had sued for divorce. He said he was afraid his 3f)-year- old wife would kill their child and herself. The red-haired mother, grief- stricken over the enstrangement, apparently strangled the baby Saturday or Sunday. Then she slashed her arms, logs, throat and wrists. A trail o£ blood led through every room of the home.

They cut their eyeteeth on a steering wheel, so to speak-they know car values from A to izzard — and you have to be plenty good to step ahead of your price class in the volume of your sales to them. That's why it's startling-sometimes even to us - io see the double-barreled story of public preference that's written in the sales records and registration figures: ITEM: Only three cars outsell Buick—and all of these are in the so-called "low-price field." ITEM: In some localities — and quite often in polls that ask "Which car will you buy next ? " — Buick ranks not fourth, but third, actually ahead of one ot jh e lowe st-priced thre e_. Naturally, the smart buyer will ask "How come?" Well, the most standout style of the season, the style that's the clearest forecast of wonderful things to be, undoubtedly has much to do with it. But that isn't all. The dollar is still a pretty important measuring stick. So we don't think Buick could be where it is if it didn't offer a bigger dollar's worth - bigger in size and substance, in lift and life, in soft ride and easy handling, bigger in the all-round happiness you'll get out of your buy. Which suggests, of course: Why go against the solid judgment of your fellow men? Why not see your Buick dealer now—with or without a car to trade — and place the order that will put you where you belong, right up in the four-front?

I was taking-it easy'in the flower-filled patio of my Hollywood Hills bungalow that , day when Jeff Haverjon, who was-directing my picture, phoned and invited me to dinner. Jeff was an attraclive man and I dressed carefully for our date. I was just putting on the finishing touches when the door chimes sounded and I went to let him in. II Jeff was bareheaded and he came in smiling and followed me down the shallow steps into the studio living room. Perhaps I'd better put in a word here about the arrangement of my house. It is one of those picturesque affairs built to fit the ter- thing. .' ." " : "Let's skip- it," I said. "It's over now. I could afford to be magnanimous the way things had worked out.'

"We'll order something before we eat." Jeff had a snappy convertible and he drove that afternoon with the top back. He took me up Laurel Canyon and along Mulholland Drive. It was the first time I'd been up there and I kept exclaiming at the view. On one curve we'd be looking down on Burbank and the airport and out at the mountains beyond. On the next we'd'have a view of down- .—!„.. ~.~«,* u *,*.„>„ 1,^ ilt vll ^ 1.^-1-.IIUXL we a nave a view 01 down- rain and since it is on a steep | town Los Angeles.

A small foyer, a guest, bedroom, my room and a bath are also on the upper floor. And, important later on in this story, is the flagged terrace outside the bedrooms whish connects with the front outside steps. Downslairs there are the double garage in front and the kitchen ond the maid's room. As a result of this up'and down arrangement, the living room has a small alcove fitted with a tiny bar and freezing unit for ice cubes so that one doesn't have to go all the way downstairs to the kitchen to fix a drink. I laid down my gloves and purse and busied myself in there for the next few minutes. "Morgan's all steamed up about your script," Jeff called from the davenport where he had settled. "He's bragging about you all over the place. Says you've done a swell job." "Didn't he expect that?" I asked coming into the room with a couple of dry Martinis. "No," Jeff said. "As a matter of fact, he didn't. When your agenl tied that clause about you writing the script into the pur- .chase contract. Morgan counted on the ' expense of having it re-written before we could use it. That's what usually happens when an author does a script the first time. Well, you script's okay, so you can see why he's happy." I see. I save Mr. Morgnn money and he loves me. If he feels that way—what ab,out a little bonus?" "He might even do bolter than that," Jeff asserted. "Don't tell Pacific on the far horizon glinting brassily under the setting sun. When I turned around he was looking at me instead of the scenery. I suppose the view was old stuff to him and something about his eyes said that I wasn't. Before I could decide whether, or not I liked the look, he spoke. "I like watching you .when you're excited about something. There's a sparkle comes up inside you. You look ten times more alive" "Do. I?" I hadn't thought. I had much sparkle left —or anything. And suddenly there was 1 the memory of Oscar Craig ruining the magic of the moment. I shivered. "Cold?" Jeff :asked. . "It's —it's the wind up here. I should have worn a topcoat." I liked him all the better because he didn't make any-banal remarks about warming me .UD in his arms. Jeff had a .lot of intuition and I think he knew my chill at that moment was more of the soul than of the body: • He started the car again and pretty soon the road dipped down on the other side of the hills and in a liltle while we were- in Burbank. The Steak House was a select restaurant in the Tolaca Lake district and one of the features of the place was a seafood bar as well as a regular bar in the waiting room. . Jeff gava his name to the hostess and we each had another Martini and a shrimp cocklail luscious with thick red sauce before our turn in the dining room came. ^^ . . \ . The Doctor Says: BY WILLIAM A. O'BRIEN, M.D. Written for NEA Service Many elderly patients with disabling conditions can be rehabilitated if active treatment is started early. Hospitals report an in- crenMng number of such pa*.len.s. as the result of prolongntion of life through disease prevention in youth. When a paitent develops a disorder associated with advanced years, there is a tendency to provide custodial care without active medical treatment. Patients who could be up arid around remain in bed, where they become a burden to their attendants as their muscles weaken and their joints stiffen from inactivity. As soon as possible after an elderly person has been stricken, he should 'remain out of bed for short periods each day, and should be encouraged to stand and walk, even though supports are necessary. Heat, massage and exercise helt> to revive the body muscles, which are temporarily dormant even though the affected" part of the body remains unchanged. If possible, self-care should be taught to all disabled patients. They should eat their meals at a bedside table or go to the dining room. Men should be encouraged to shave and all should be asked to take their own b.aths even though this is difficult in the beginning. Attention'to personal appearance is helpful in rehabilitation programs. Participation in activities about the institution and a program of games and sports is stimulating. Occupational therapy helps to hasten recovery, as it teaches the victim to make useful things which an be sold. Efficient Homes . Home's for elderly persons can be so efficiently run that the majority are either taking part in community life, or working at some position part time. In the past, aged patients were considered permanently afflicted but, today, many are being restored to social and conomic usefulness. Hospitals for disabled elderly persons must guard against developing chronic invalidism in their charges. Their best chance of prevention is to start early and to push their rehabilitation program with enthusiasm and persistence.

"I'm curious, thoueh. How did you do it? I mean, .how did you manage to skin jhe mistakes most beginners make?" . I turned the glass in my hands so that the olive revolved from side to side. It happens that I don't esnecinllv like to talk-about my work. Not that I have anv' overwhelming modesty, but I know that the mystery thrillers I've turned out so far are just hack stuff. Some day I may write a real book—a book that counts. And when I do. then will be time enough to brag. But Jeff misunderstood my si- jlence. He volunteered. "I suppose Liz helped. That boy really knows his stuff. . ." I choked on my drink and in- dimpation. '-Liz Leyden—" Lisbon Levden. commonlv called Liz, was the studio staff writer with the casting. Jeff told.me of a couple of last minute assignments about which there had been .some indecision. "Jimmy Peters is going tp play the detective. You know him." I didn't think I did. "A blond curly headed kid." Jeff insisted. "I introduced him to you one- day at the studio." "Oh— that one. But, isn't he a little young for the part? He ddin't look morfi than twenty." I would have said eighteen, onlv I remembered there had been a discharge button in his coat lapel. "He's just twenty." Jeff said. "But he's had a lot of experience. He used to play juvenile parts before he went into the Army. And of course for this part he'll be made up to look older." I leaned both elbows on ihe table and looked at Jeff and registered bewilderment. "I don't pretend to understand the way the Hollywood rnind works," I, said. "You make un Jimmy Peters to look older so that? he can play the part of the detective, and you take Art Cleves with the bags under his eyes and try to make him look -• V i .TIWWH-F .?inn wiiLiri mo uj'ca cum Liy io muKe mm IOOK who had been assigned to help I young enough to play the romantic inn write the script of my story, (lead. Wouldn't it be simpler and a Jittle more plausible if you just exchanged their roles?" Jeff made a face as if he'd gotten a bite of something rotten. He agreed. ''Simpler, yes— if Avis Vaughn didn't insist upon Art playing opposite her. They're like that, you know." And Jeff held up a hand with two fingers stuck together. "I still don't get it," I said bluntly. "Avis Vaughn isn't as young as she used to be. I should think she'd be doing well enough for herself to get the lead in a first class production without being able to dictate the rest of the casting." It wasn't that I had anything against the Vaughn. She was a curvaceous, sexy blond and still plenty photogenic even though she had been kicking around in front of the cameras for more years than she'd care to admit. something more than* her acting' u , -, The helpful part of this arrangement had proven purely theoretical. We had argued endlesly over every scene. Sometimes he'd win an argument, but more often I'd have my way. After all, it was my story. We'd ended up with me hating his anatomir-al insides and with him hating mine. When I'd caught my breath I said coldly: "If you really want to know how I turned out a fair script, it was by sheer endurance. I went to see every movie mystery I could find— and I think every one made in the last 10 years is showing at some neighborhod house or other around Los Angeles. I just picked out the things in them I didn't like and refused to write them into mine." "Smart girl," Jeff applauded. But he hadn't missed my reaction to Liz Leyden's name either.
