Cop Retains His Job Though He May Be Rich
Hollywood, Cal. Everybody knows
policemen are skeptical, and Herbert
R. Reynolds, tratllc officer of Holly
wood, Is no exception. In the squadron
at the police station, fellow officers
recently crowded around and congrat
ulated him on falling heir to $000,000.
"Maybe yes and maybe no." Rey
nolds commented, leaving hurriedly
to take up his duty as directing traffic
officer at Hollywood's busiest corner.
According to Attorney Charles

"She isn't unhappy " began Ber
tram. "Bless your heart, no," said the
landlady. "What would she huve to
be unhappy about? got a good job,
got her health, and doesn't give a
whoop for the men."
"Of course, of course," suld Ber
tram and went up to his room.
He had determined to forget all
about the sobbing and would perhaps
bave done so had It not disturbed his
peace of mind that evening. It was
very faint, very much subdued and
might not huve been audible to one
possessed of less acute sense of bear
ing than Bertram.
The next morning Bertram scrutl
niied Miss Clara I'rlnger rather closely.
True, he observed, she appeured to be
happy, but there were light shadows
under her gray eyes, a delicate turn
to her pretty lips that might betoken
sorrow. Certainly she looked a little
more weary, now, than she did when
he first came to the boarding house a
month before. Without quite meaning
to do so he asked her If she had been
at home the evening before, and she
said that she had. He asked her If
she Intended being at home that eve
ning, and she replied: "I haen t
planned anything," in such a way that
Bertram boldly asked her If she would
"go to the movies" with him.
The next night he sat In hla room
and the sobbing began : Listening
more Intently than ever, he heard be
tween the sobs a low, pathetic mono
tone of words. Now perfectly sure
that his neighbor must be absorbed In
some consuming grief Bertram felt
that U was almost his duty to take
