WHO WAS IT,” asked Bill Lombard, “that had a something or other about something?” “An idea,” Ann told him. “Sutton had it. About—you know—everything. He’ll spring it if you’ll keep quiet and let him. But how can he if you keep changing the subject?”

Sometimes Juries Err

MALCOLM GOSSETT, hard-boiled in all matters of sentiment except as regarded his beautiful young wife, was conscious of a sense almost of reverence as he was ushered into the presence of the great man whom he had come to visit. The latter’s environment was sufficiently impressive.

FICTION

Lady Out West

THERE WAS a last long streaming of rays, so hotly vivid as to have the effect of artillery a-thunder, and then the sun fell below the western range with a final explosive borealis.

A Writer Looks at Hollywood

LIGHTS BLAZE and glitter along the length of Hollywood Boulevard, and, at a point where the coruscation is thickest, the broad white pencils of searchlights sweep the sky with nervous stabbing. Klieg lights, focused upon a building’s white façade, glare brighter than noonday, and the martial notes of a military band quicken the steps of passers-by.
