WOODS HOLE,' Mas (AP) Just as the Old Woman
riding1 the broom had to. sweep the cobwebs from the heavens
andi light he stars each night, Ao the Keeper of the Buoys
znus.it sweep clean the waters, marking the bad; spots with
iparsand buoys; some of which he must light up at night.
'.Thirty-five years ; winter and summer I've been at' this
10b" says A. D. Wilde, head of the department of buoys for
the coast from the tip of Cape Cod to the boundary of Rhode
Island. "Three hundred puoysi are in; my care, marking all
fhe shoals , and ledges,' the rocks and wrecks,' tide rips and
eddies that make hard the way of the mariner in Buzzards
Bay and Vinyard Sound. . .," ' : 1
'They have to be" watched. The spars must be kept fresh
Jy pWnted red orjblack, the bell buoys must be kept free of
rust, far enough out of the water for the gentle roll of the
tide to sound their irph bell. The' whistling buoys must have
their wind pipes clear, tbe? valves strong, so that the same
fall and rise so the waves will draw air into their throats,
and force it out in a whistle. The light buoys must' be kept
supplied with the fuel they need, "pinch gas" or other sub
stance, so that they will warn in the dark. -'
jAnd everyone of the 300 must be hauled out of the water
ana ashore once a year, to be scraped "and cleaned and painted
up and put back fresh. That's the work', of my tender, 'the
Anemone.' . .. ; - . ,
' . The garden; f the Keeper of the Buoys blooms' with
these strange" flowers of the sea. There are prim 'nun
booys, black, conical shaped forms like the head dress of a
mediaeval sister of; charity. . They lie i 20. feet from tip to
base, standing ten feet out ot the water; with a circumference
of about fifteen fe,et. In their class, of the faintly old fash
ioned favorites, are, the can buoys, which?, may be round or
square, of bout the size. They with their rigid brothers,
the spar buys, are knownas da y buoys, for they serve their
part' only as' long" as light lasts, and sink into useless-stolidity
at night or in afpg.1 ( v r ..J, , H -r... , v. . . ....
" So there were invented the belt fcuoys, andthe whistling
buoys,, said the Keeper, .pointing to other forms. The bell
buoys are massive, with, their pyramidal , frames, ten or
twelve- feet high.v supporting a ; heavy Iron bell. It takes a
9000 pound mooring to hold them to thehbal they warn of,

JERUSALEM (AP) In contrast to the recent disturb

and pease obtaining in Palestine.
Jerusalem, formerry Ja city exclusively for pilgrims and
tourists, is rapidly becoming a center for merchants and busi
ness men. Under "the f irm; just and impartial rule of the
British, the Jews are rebuilding their Promised Land, mak
ing it, instead of a shrine where pilgrims admired holy ruins
and dwelt in the gloridus past, an up-to-date and enterprising
country. ' '. ' '.'
Jerusalem now consists of two cities, the old and the new.
The new, sprung ill within the last few years, consists of
residential, shopping and business quarters, Jewish settle
ments, schools, churches, and large religious institutions. It
is entirely modern. f
The old city, flanked on ' three sides by deep valleys, is
made up of narrow,' crooked streets, filled with loaded don
keys an camels and lined with romantic and historical build
ings. " ' '

Task of Selecting Subject Matterffolr Big !pKbJoplays Is

Responsibility of One Man . , "
HOLLYWOOD, CW(AP)4hXvanyticl minds
usually pass judgment upon a book, play "or original story be
fore it is converted into a modern picture.
So hazardous do must production 1 of ficials consider-the
task of selecting the subject matter of photoplays, that no
one person is given exclusive responsibility. Opinions of a
number of minds are desired, i' ' . .;; :
A novel for Metro-GoldwynMayer, f or example, is sug
gested to or recommended by a' studio executive It is then
passed , upon by Marion Frances Lee, head of the scenario
department, who in turn assigns it to one tf her readers for
further judgment. - u .
Thereafter the novel is synopslzed and commented upon
Dy two or more readers and returned, to the executives, who
decide from their reports whether it contains picture ma
terial, r :
If the reports are favorable, the novel is purchased and
assigned to a writer for adaptation. This means that the
most important and dramatic situations are enlarged upon
and the unimportant details those ; that cannot be shown
upon the screen are deleted. Sometimes as many as four
writers make adaptations or "treatments" of the same novel
bef or e one is found satisfactory. ' ; . ; . . v
Following that a director is selected to make the picture,
and he is consulted as to his opinios on both the story and
the treatment of the final script. If he, too, passes on it, a
continuity is written from the adaptation. Every scene is
written out in terms of action and numbered." If the finished
continuity does not meet with all-around approval, however,
a conference is held and certain original scenes are added and
others taken out. .a:;.,---- : v--.
Duringlhe entire time that the adaptation and continuity
are being written, the director, star, writers, and supervisor
confer and make suggestions for improvement.
