Feb. 7. .*V- From a scratchy, asthmatic phonograph in a staid supreme courtroom Thurs day came a meaiey ot voices pur porting to be a three-way conversa tion between Fay Webb Vallee. her father and her mother. The record was played by Hyman Bushel, counsel for Rudy Vallee, or chestra leader whose estranged wife is seeking more maintenance money. The phonograph was set up before the witness stand during cross ex amination of Mrs. Vallee's father, Clarence E. Webb, a plainspoken man who day before yesterday testified that his son-in-law was "no angel.” Questioning the witness concern ing a transcontinental telephone call which he put through from San ta Monica. Calif., to his daughter in New York. Bushel asked Webb: “Did you give the phone to your wife?” Webb, police chief of Santa Mon ica. replied in the afifrmative. “Did you hear your wife say this to your daughter?” asked Bushel. *• Has Garfield been around the house?” “I did not,” said Webb This telephone conversation took place after Vallee had called his father-in-law. saying, “things are getting beyond my control,” and asking him to come to New Y^k. Bushel continued, “would you know who your wife meant by Gar.|?ld?” “I knew a young man named Gar field.” said Webb. The ’‘Garfield” referred to his Garfield “Garry" Leon, whose wife cnce sued Mrs. Vallee for alienation of affections. Further que.stionlng brought out that Leon is an adagio dancer by profession. ••I will see if I can refresh your memory.” said Bushel. Over objections by former State Senator Thomas I. Sheridan. Mrs. Valee’s counsel, the record Was play ed in the machine. A feminine voice could be distinct ly heard saying. "I won’t know any thing about it.” and “that's very funny.” The other voices were Just a blur of sound. “Do you recogniae the voices?” Bushel asked Webb. “I do not.” Webb said heatedly. That is not my voice, not my daugh ter's voice, not my wife's voice.

You observe him tolerantly, but with no immediate display of inter est. You are an established resident, getting along very nicely before he came. But you do not avoid him. For reasons not entirely unselfish you wait for him to reveal himself. Possibly he may add something to your social and business lite. Possibly he will take a highly respected place in the community. He may ever become one of your intimates. It is up to him. So you note his manners, talk with him. and form an opinion. If he comes up to your requirements, you ac cept him. and often he proves a welcome addition to your group of friends. It is with exactly the same attitude that the intelli gent newspaper reader regards the advertisements of products new to him. These strangers may add some thing to his civilized enjoyment. They may contribute to his comfort, safety—even his success. In many ways they may prove valuable. Certainly it is wise to give them careful consideration. Read the advertisements in The Herald. They may be the means of introducing you to products that will take important places in your life. And every day they will give you information that enables you to buy intelligent ly and make your money go farther.
