ROUND UP

Did you fall for all that apple sauce about the happy home and the contented wife? Listen, Barker-I'd give anything in the world to be out of this mess. I'd give anything to never see him again."
" Don't you love him any more? Doesn't he love you? Or what? "
" Love ! I never did love him ! I didn't know what love was 1 And all his love is for himself !"
" How did you happen to get married? "
" I was a kid ; that's the answer. A kid and ambitious. See? He was a director then and he got stuck on me and I thought he'd maxe me a star. See, Barker? I married him to get myself a chance. And now look at me! "
" I'd say you were fairly well off."
" Well off, am I? I'd change places with the scum of the earth just to be free ! See, Barker? And I could have been a star without any help if I'd only realized it. I had the looks and I had the talent. I've got it yet. I could be a Swanson and get myself a marquis; maybe a prince ! And look what I did get ! A self-satisfied, self-centered ! I thought he'd make me! See, Barker? Well, he's made me all right; he's made me a chronic mother and it's a. wonder I've got any looks left.
" I fought at first. I told him marriage didn't mean giving up my art, my life work. But it was no use. He wanted a beautiful wife and beautiful children for his beautiful home. Just to show us off. See? I'm part of his chattels. See, Barker? I'm just like his big diamond or his cars or his horses. And he wouldn't stand for his wife `lowering' herself to act in pictures. Just as if pictures hadn't made him!
" 'You go back to your magazine tomorrow and write about our love nest. See, Barker? And be sure and don't get mixed and call it a baby ranch. Babies ! You thought little Norma was pretty. Well, she is. And what is it going to get her? A rich
of a husband that treats her like a ! That's what it'll get her if I don't interfere. I hope I don't last long enough to see her grow up, but if I do, I'm going to advise her to run away from h)me and live her own life. And be somebody ! Not a thing like Ian! See, Barker ? "
" Did you ever think of a divorce? "
" Did I ever think of one ! Listen-but there's no chance. Pve get nothing on him, and no matter what he had on me, he'd never let the world know it. He'd keep me he-a and torture me like he
