A flaxen-haired school-girl, with curiously deep blue eyes, regards them for al moment and passes by. The poilu, em- bittered, looks to class hatred and the Bolsheviks to end war; the officer speaks of a better way. He persuades the poilu te enter the neighborng church with him for Benediction. In England, on an April morning, 1924, guests be- gin to arrive for Lady Wray's announce- meat of her daughter Verna's engage- ment to l-iarland Carville. Verna's eye arc of a curiously deep blue, emphasized by flaxen hair. She announces to Har- land her efusal to go through with the engagement, duo to his flagrantly in- decent book which she has just read, and Harland picking his way through the crowd, passes from the house and walxs swiftly down the drive. Religious per- secution rages in Russia. A doctor of divinity preaches on modernism. O 3 Good Friday in a Lc, ndon rast-en Catholic Church, a Crucifix is lald on the sanctuary steps, with costers and dock- laborers streaming up to the nave to kneel and kiss the feet. In Hollywootl Verna and her girl friend, Terry Har- court, visit the film studios as the guest of a director whom Verna had met through her father. Verna and Terry now live together in a flat in London. An hour later, inside "Stage 20," Verna and Terry Harcourt, gain on either side of the Di- rector, were watching preparations for a shot. Before them on the set a gor- geous construction, representing the stage of a Variety House, blazed with arc-lamps and mer- cury moons, the whole effect heightened by an upward glare of flood.lights. In the wings on either side of the stage a galaxy of actors, and supers, and danc- ing girls were stationed in readi- ness. From the costumes, and the lack of them, a revue was in process of being filmed. A whistle blew. Electricians and workmen hurried off the set. The Director turned to Verna on his right: "The exhibition gal. Wud you mind keepin' her fixed?" Verna nodded; he had explain- ed "exhibition" at lunch. The megaphone blasted: "Go!" To a rhythm o instruments and the winding of cameramen, four lines of dancing girls in close for- mation swayed into view from left and right. The rhythm increased in volume, as the lines lengthened out, four rows deep across the stage, leaving a gangway down the center. For a while there was a steady beat of feet, until the or- chestra gave the cue for a move- ment which placed each row in turn in front. All the girls were of the same height, their figures displayed to a maximum advant- age in a minimum of covering. The orchestra died down. A curtain in the background opened, and on a pedestal what appeared to be a statue in the nude, was revealed. The arms of the statue moved slowly upwards; the or- Chestra livened up into a cres- cendo and then into a blare of in- struments as the body came to life and stepped down. It was a girl, virtually naked, her form artificially whitened. A spotlight followed her circling in and out of the dancing rows up to the footlights. The melody changed into a voluptuous, barbaric tune. She swung with the troupe into a writhing, snake-like movement i her eyes fastening upon members here and there of an imaginary audience, defying them to remove their gaze, her hands gesturing i insinuatingly. The cameramen were wheeling in for a close-up. The Director turned for a moment, to watch Verna's face. More curtains opened up stage and two magnificent specimens of the male were standing on pedes- tals in the same statuesque pose. They, too, came to life, stepped down, and were followed by spot- lights, gyrating in and out up to the front, and on either side of the "exhibition" girl. Like hers their bodies were artificially whit- ened. The music became low and i seductive, as the three of them gestured in dumb show, the men: displaying their physique to the girl, hesitating between them, all the while keeping the rhythm with her feet. Her hands were seized in turn, and she was swung from one to the other. She pirouetted about them, still in doubt. They grasped for her, but she eluded them. There was an ingenious pursuit, with each row of the troupe encircling her from her would-be captors, until finally she was entrapped, held, and rais- ed aloft by the pair. sion. The girl was lowered re- luctantly. The three of them gained their pedestals, stepped up and, with stiffening gestures of despair, became rigid and im- mobile as before .... "Cut!" They waited while the Director, barely listening, dismissed a girl who had approached him outside i the Stageas they emerged, with I some request. She walked away slowly with her head down. came to them: "Wal, Miss Wray?" Verna regarded him coolly. "Well?" Her manner surprised him: "You ent lookin' pleased." She did not reply. "Gee, that gal wud have looked pleased." He nodded after her. Didn' you know wet I meant askin' you to keep that show-gal fixed?" "I'd an idea. Yes?" "She got the goods--personal- ity. The're gals here wud sell their souls for the chance o' that dance. D'you git me, now?" Verna straightened herself: ,,1% i ,r. D rector, are you offering me a job?" "I'm puttin' you a proposition. Ef you'll stay in Hollywood, I'll git you put thru' with a dancin'. An' if the Director says he got a new show-girl--wal, they got one. See? I'm reckonin' you'll pull it with the box-office." "Oh?" "Ef it's the dancin' you're think- in' of, doant worry. That's train- in'. Ther a dozen gals behind her cud do that dance jest now. It's gettin' it across. An' I'm tellin' 1ou--you cud." "Getting what across." The Director appeared moment. irily at a loss. He scratched his head. "Gee, fancy a gal like you askin' that? Why, wet do the tired business men o' New York pay their money for? Acrobatics?" He laughed. "Ent you heard o' sex-appeal, Miss Wray?" Verna was staring at him cold- ly. The Director began to look slightly uncomfortable. There was a disconcerting glint in the violet eyes, penetrating his languid self- assurance. He shifted a foot. "Thank you for the lunch." Verna turned abruptly and walked off with Terry Harcourt. The Director was left staring after them, with his hat pushed on the back of his head. ! A workman in overalls emerged from Stage 20, saw him, and came up with, "Say Director--" "Go to b--h--I" I He was standing in a doorway marked, "Stairway to Swimming- bath," looking about--a man with sharp features and humorous, watchful eyes. The tea-tables uhder the awning on his left were mostly unoc- cupied as yet, and people still strolling the promenade deck. in the afternoon sun, or lolling against the taffrail watching the Atlantic sliding away beneath-- barely broken save in the liner's wake. A game of quoits was in progress through a glass screen. The voices of the players could be heard. The man lit a cigarette, and emerged to arrange a wet bathing suit on the taffrail, He remained there studying the shimmering waters and the haze over the hori- zon, until, at a sound from behind he glanced round cautiously. Two girls were coming through the doorway, chattering cheerfully. They too were carrying wet bath- ing-eostomes, which they likewise proceeded to drape over the taff- rail; after which they likewise re- mained studying the haze over the horizon. The man himself was absorbed in the haze. Very carefully he turned his head to find the younger of the two doing the same. They both hurriedly returned to the haze. An atmosphere of acute self-con- sciousness appeared to prevade all three of them. The girl suddenly began to laugh. He faced her, with a smile hesitating on his lips. The girl plunged: "Rather silly, this? Let's in- troduce ourselves." He laughed, too: "That is a good idea. But per- haps I am a bad man." "We've decided that you're a nice man. This is Miss Harcourt. I think you had better shake hands --it will look better. The lady is watching." He took the cue, and also Miss Harcourt's outstreched hand. His eyes returned to the younger: "You are Miss Wray  Miss Verna Wray?" "And you are Captain Vivien-- Captain Louis Vivien? . . . Yes, they're very obliging at the Bureau . . . No, you mustn't shake hands with me. I'm intro- ducing you and Miss Harcourt. The idea is that we've already met . . . I think I'm doing this rather well." She looked care- lessly about. "The lady in the spectacles is wondering whether I'm a vamp." "Vamp?" he asked. "Sorry. Of course -- you're He French. Vamp? A film female --an ensnarer. Miss Harcourt was a vamp before she was my staid companion. "Verna, you're te limit!" Ter- ry Harcourt expostulated. Captain Vivien asked: "Perhaps you are a -- film star.I am right." Verna assumed hauteur: ] "No, indeed not! Is that why you wanted to talk?" "I beg your pardon. It is the straw hair--the eyes." Flaxen please. Is that why you wanted to talk?" Captain Louis Vivien indicated the tea-tables un- der the awning. "We will all have tea together, and I will tell you why. But you will promise not to vamp me? Come on." He led the way there, ordered tea from a waiter, and invited them to sit down with: "I am doing this rather well. Is that not so? The lady in the spectacles is saying to herself-- he is a nice kind uncle." "The lady in the spectacles," i Terry announced, "is saying to herselfthe niece is abnormally excited about the tmcle." "Terry, how dare you! Captain Vivien, no tea for the staid com- panion!" He smiled indulgently: "I will tell you why I have wanted to talk to you." Verna leaned forward: "Yes, do!" "Because I say to myself--she wants to talk to me." "Really! Captain Vivien!" "Very well. It is because I have remembered you." "Remember me?" "I have seen you in Paris, after the War. I have seen you for just one minute." "Paris?" "There was a French officer talking with a poilu at the cor- ner of a Place, and there was a little girl with flaxen hair who was listening." She was watching his face per- plexedly. "At night. Under a light. Op- posite Le Grande Hotel." Her eyes were suddenly alight. She exclaimed: "Yes! . . . I do! . . And the French officer was arguing with the poilu about the Bolsheviks, and the little girl was wonder- ing who they were. And the French officer turned, and their eyes met. And she looked away, blushing . . . It was you? . . It was you? . . . Terry, this is an absolute romance!" Terry remarked drily: "And the lady in the spectacles 'is wondering why the little girl with the flaxen hair failed to recognize her uncle, in Paris." Verna raised her voice: "Uncle Louis! And I never knew you!" She added, sotto voce, "But this is thrilling! ... I was a school: girl thenin Paris." He proffered: At dinner last night I say to myself--I have seen her some- where. This morning I say to my- self--it is the schoolgirl with the flaxen hair, who is now a wo- man." "You remember me? You must have been thinking about me ever since . . . Terry, this is a super romance." He shrugged lis shoulders: "The schoolgirl has remember- ed the French officer? She has been thinking about him ever since. This is a very great ro- mance." "Captain Vivien!" "That is--what do you say-- Quits! . . . Here is the tea com- ing. Yes, she is more interested the lady in the spectacles."

Death of Priest And Surgeon Stir Wide Indignation Paris, Oct. 5. (E).--Two execu- tions at Madrid that have aroused exceptional indignation abroad are the killings of a priest who was a leader in the field of edu- cation, Father( Poveda, and a dis- tinguished surgeon, Dr. Gomez Ullia. The murder of Father Poveda is mourned particularly in France for Catholics here had a special regard for this worker in the in- terests of feminine education who dedicated his first normal school to St. Therese of the Child Jesus. It has caused sorrow in Latin America where members of the Teresian Institute, founded by Fr. Poveda 25 years ago, have been engaged in education work for a decade. The torture and death of Dr. Gomez Ullia, Madrid surgeon, has called forth protests from numerous foreign medical so- cieties. The surgeon was arrested While caring for the wounded and charged with being a Monarchist because he had given medical aid to Gem Lopez Ochoa. Dr. Gomez Ullia protested that his medical and surgical knowledge were in the service of sick and wounded regardless of faction, since his pro- fession is one that is above all human dissensions and rivalries. Hands Cut Off One of his captors hit upon a cruel mental as well as physical torture for a surgeon--the loss of his hands. Hands that had cared for Fascists should be cut off, his captors agreed, and so the hands that had become so skillful in surgery, were lopped off at the wrists. After Dr. Gomez Ullia en- dured for some time the thought flect . . that if yielding to any undue influence you act either through favor, affection, or the motives of dishonest gain against w SPECIALIZE in repairing all kinds of shoes WONDER STATE SHOE SHOP 418 Louisiana Ph. 4-5096_ 2815 Prospect Ph. 3-5319 A Trial Will Convince You Our Prices Are Right PHONES 4-4836----4-4837----4-4838 Ce FINKBEINER 900-908 High Street Little Rock, Ark.
