Cm fpsy ** ** Y MARCARET BELL HOUSTON ' iRJ Xj^ SYNOPSIS: Rupert Joria teas drunk when he married Hope—and he only did 4t because Elinor Flem ing jilted him on account of hia drinking. But when Rupert finds that his friends insist the marriage will not last he grows stubborn, gives Hope a 35,000 check, asks her to overlook the fact that he had suggested an annulment, and tells her to go to New York in the morn ing to bug herself the clothes she needs. l)irk. Rupert’s younger brother, has met Hope under pe culiar circumstances before the marriage; he does not know wheth er to be glad or sorry of Rupert’s decision. He is talking with her about the old and prominent Joris family. Chapter 15 JEWELS—RETURNED TTOPE spelled out the motto. “Hilariter. ‘Merrily/ I like that, too .is that this house?” “As it used to be.” said Dirk. “You see wanted to do some thing big. so he copied the town-hail back home, and called the place 'Schlecterhorstveldt/ " “Big enough!" she smiled. “Too big for English Admiral Lowrie, when he married a Joris and became head of the family. He didn’t like Dutch things anyhow, so when a tire destroyed part of the castle he rebuilt it ... In good colo Dial fashion. Gothic towers aud a colonial wing. We’re an awful hodge podge, inside and out. Your room now ... It has all the*DtHch furni ture that’s left itf the house. The okl kas..." i 1 i ?!>. ... , : ' t f “The kas?” “That' old painted wardrobe is a kas. There wesp hasten in all the bedrooms. Almost everything was Dutch to start with. But the genera lions came and went, throwing out, bringing in. That mantel there, for Instance, is Italian. And the tapes tries in the hall are French. Aud the drawing-room, you may have no ticed, is all Chinese Chippendale. “The only generation that hasn’t changed something is miue and Ru pert’s. All we've done is shut up most of the rooms. It took a platoon of servants to run the place. Some where around here.” pointing to the colonial wing, "there used to be a secret stair.” “A secret stair?” Dirk nodded. “Some canny old Joris built it. either to escape from his intimates, or to let them In. It wasn’t discovered by his descen dants until the lire, and then Ad miral Lowrie tore It out in shocked surprise. But he did something much worse when he built the wing.” “It’s all beautiful.” said Hope. "It looks as it there might have been a moat and a draw-bridge once, and a dungeon and a keep.” "A dungeon, at any rate." Dirk an swered. “We call it a basement. I’ll show it all to you some day. the old ballroom, and the Dutch chapel . . . and the very top of the tower where they used to watch for the boats. It will take some climbing.” She was looking at another crest, a shield, a hand that held a broken sword. She read the Latin words. “My shield is scarred.” She closed the book. Presently she said. “That’s the motto 1 choose." Dirk said, “Can’t 1 sell you Mer rily? Or Favorable Winds? They suit you better.” “No. they suit you. My shield Is scarred." She rose, the book in her arms. “I’m taking it upstairs. May 1?" “Of course. Areu’t you . . . aren’t you a Joris. too?” “Perhaps. That’s why I want to read it. it’s . to liy.e up to." Dirk went upstairs with her. car rying the book. He was disappointed. He had thought they would have the evening together. At her door he said, “Don’t forget lun'clt. The Lawyers' Club.” He gave her the address. She would remember, she told him, and they said good night. When the door was closed she laid the book on the table beside the bed. The bed had been turned down, and one of her own nightgowns folded on the pillow. After a moment she moved noiselessly to the door be tween the two rooms, and pressing her cheek against it. listened. There was a sound now and then of papers stirring, and once a sharp noise as if Rupert were knocking out his pipe. She stole back, and moving the lamp, settled herself in the big gild ed chair, the “History of the Joris Family” propped against the table. She began to read the fine, uneven print. Reading, she fell asleep, and woke when the great clock in the hall was striking midnight. She rose then, INDIA’S INTEREST IN U. S. FILMLAND HORRIFIES ELDERS >lr Associated Pres*) CALCUTTA, India, May 29. I he tremendous interest shown by India’s millions in Hollywood mov ing picutres has alarmed the older generation.

DIRK met one o’clock at the Lawyers' Club. She had at tended to her deposit at the bank and had already done a bit of shop ping. Dirk was conscious that the black dress looked somehow different, less demure—saw that the change In It was due to the hat. a rakish scrap with a curling feather. “Stunning,” he said. She sparkled. "Look under the table.” He looked, and as he did not come up at once, “My shoes!” she explained. “Oh. your shoes! 1 should say." He came up then to find the waiter at grave attention. After lunch ho took Hope to the Joris offices a few doors away. Grave and dignified quarters that had once commanded a view of lower Manhat tan and the Battery, but that now were hemmed in by new growths of steel and stone. Amid the encircling monoliths there seemed something stable in the dingy comfort of the Joris of fices, something rooted and secure. The presence of Judge Blaise Joris. Dirk’s and Rupert’s father, seemed still to pervade the place, as the light of a master star continues to fall on the earth long after the star has passed. Hope met Sanford Joris, and the members of the Joris staff, lingered in Rupert’s private sanctum. She was interested in his secretary—effi cient, thirty-odd—in the books on his glassed-in shelves, in the street below his window. Dirk finally enticed her forth to look at his own office, and the morn ing paper which lay on his desk. He had folded the paper at the ac count of the wedding. It was short, a mere announcement, and she read it quickly. Dirk explained that Connolly bad mislaid some of the data. “Your father’s name, for one thing, and the city you hail from. Or it may be Connolly doesn’t know the items that belong in the society col umns. At any rate, 1 have them, and tomorrow’s issue . . She turned to him, a little pale. “Please don’t. Ono account is enough." "1 think so, too,” Dirk answered. She had seemed slightly relieved on reading the notice, grateful appar ently for its brevity. There would be no second account if she did not wish it. He went with her to the elevator. “So you’re going shopping?" She answered thoughtfully, “What color does he like—for eve ning, 1 mean?" Dirk hardly knew Rupert’s pref erence in colors, and mentioned his own. “White," he said. It might be Rupert’s color, at that, since Elinor so often wore it. He re flected that a box had come for Ru pert that morning, a small, precious looking box. He himself had signed for it, and carried it up to Rupert’s room, Rupert having already left for White Plains. He dreaued the moment when Ru pert should find the box. dreaded it for Hope. She with her anxiety as to Rupert’s choice in colors! “White." he saitf again, for after all it mattered greatly to himself what she should wear. “White, and for daytime, brown —that sort of rusty brown.” | She thanked him gravely, stepped into the elevator, and smiling a good by, disappeared. RUPERT found the box on his ar rival home. It contained the jewels he had given Elinor during the six years of their engagement. He opened it, looking at the strand of pearls that had been his mother’s, the twin bracelets he had bought at Cartier’s, the brooch, the ring, the necklace. . .. Their very touch, ho had thought, would be like touching the flesh of Elinor. He would have thought, too, that, receiving this box from her, he would have sat down to an evening’s steady drinking. He looked at his watch. Hope would be in her room, he reflected. He had telephoned her two hours before that he would not be home before eight, that she was to have dinner without him, and be dressed for their evening together. She was dressing now, Nora assisting her. He had met Nora going to her room on his arrivaL Rupert lifted out the strand of his mother’s pearls, and, opening a small, inner drawer of his desk, dropped them within. Then, the box of jewels in his hand, he knocked on the door of Hope’s room. (Ccfyriikt. 1933, Margaret Mall Eoatloa) Dirk has a difficult moment, to* morrow, at the theater. the Indian policy in the British parliament. In many respects the motion picture is taking the place of the religion festival and the develop ing interest in films is regarded with pious horror by certain of the older folk. Definite hostility toward the screen is thus nourished in some quarters, as indicated by a recent bill introduced in the legislature to prevent students from going to the movies without consent of their guardian or schoolmaster.

In fact a couple of guys lost the only good golf ball they had and therefore had to quit and go to town. You must guess who those guilty par ties were. Mr. Li Plummer arrived late on the scene because his wash wom an had forgot to send home his shorts and Li is the kind of a guy) who pays in shorts regardless of how the weather is, just so long as it is after the first of May. He is the kind of guy who started the keeping of calendars to tell what time of year it might be. The shorts in question came in handy. . .he was deputized to go into all casual water (and other ponds) and retrieve balls knocked in by Bascom Grooms, Handsome Horace O’Bryant as well as by Mr. Li. Mr. Willie Pious Watkins and Mr. Irish Kerr had figured at least a tie if not a win against Samuella Goldsmith and Otto Kirchheiner. After three or four holes it looked like Sam and Otto world have a walkover until Mr. Watkins began to get down to business. Before long Otto and Sam were on the short end of the score and then they woke up and the match ended 3 up for them while Willie and Russell managed to get a half point Nassau. Mr. Berlin Saw.er enjoyed the company and golf of Mr. Georgia Leira. Mr. Sawyer was once mis taken for a lion tamer. After nine holes, Mr. Freddy Ayala had hisi feet so wet that he JOHN C.

Earl claimed it was anew 15c ball and Old Bye was welcome to same if he would re trieve it. On account of Mr. Eddie Strunk thinking that maybe a big blow was in the of ling, he stayed at the store to get ready to sell various and sundry hurricane sup plies. Mr. Mehin Russell was so overcome with the fine bunch of graduates that he also failed to ar rive. Their respective places were taken by Bob Snottswood and Charlie Ketchum and so Willie Kemp and Charlie Salas were on the losing end of the score. It seems that Willie and Charlie were only 17 down and claimed they might have won except that they gave out of holes before they had caught up. Mr. Louis Pierce, the marathon golfer, played a total of 37 holes. Once he forgot and played twico before he discovered his error. For the total 37 holes Mr. Pierce reports anywhere from 41 to 47 strokes and says that if the afternoons were a little long er he believes he could get in an extra 9 holes. Mr. Pierce must have been left in the sunshine when he was a boy.
