But they were going to hang Lee it was their job to hang him, and these were conscien­tious workmen at hanging. They marched Lee back to a cell and called for carpenters. They sawed the ed/ges off the flaps sio that there could not be another hitch. They tested the trap again. It worked. 1.

The bolt was drawn for the third time. And the trap refused to work for the third time. This was more than serious. It spread consternation among the officials. Their nerve was gone. They put Lee back in his cell, took tihe cap off his face, and left him. They communi­cated the catastrophe to the Home Office. The Home Office did noit know what to do. No man. had ever been so near eternity by hanging and had not made the grade. The Home Office com­promised. They granted the prisoner a “respite,” and went into a huddle about the whole business. I can tell you more strange things about this tragic at­tempt to hang Lee. The Gover­nor of Exeter Gaol always carried about with him a little pocket almanack. Under each day there was a quotation, sometimes from the Bible, sometimes fixxm famous writers. where 'sm y PRETTIEST fro ck, Dl ? - I'VE GOT THE CHANCE OF A JOB ¦iTii W(TH EN L<£ISA I I !L _ li K f-A J r v WHAT/— ¦To ENTERTAIN THE TKOOP5, JANE?

This is what he read: “Surely it is the hand of the Lord that has done this. You can call that coincidence or what you will. I give it as a matter of interest. But the Home Office was shaken. The same evening as the trap-door at the gaol had refused to work, Mr. (later Lord) Cross rose up in the House of Commons and asked whether, “in view of what had occurred at Exeter Gaol ”that morning, anymore attempts were to be made to hang Lee.” The Home Secretary (Sir William Harcourt) faced a crowded House and shook his head “No, sir,” he said, in reply.“ Nio, sir.” He couldn't say more—or less. The House was satisfied. Well, they hadn't finished with Lee, although they didn t try to hang him anymore. They sent him to penal servitude for life. He spent most of over twenty years at Portland, a useful and exemplary prisoner, a member of the chapel choir. I know that some people re­garded the failure as a sign from Heaven. I don't know. Think over the matters of Lees dream, the quotation in the Governor6 diary, the tests and further tests that were made. Lee always said he was innocent. Was all this merely coinci­dence ?Or what ?Write and tell me if you think so, or what you think. Ill be interested.

SOULS, HERETICS V THOJ6H THEY WERE! m JUST JAKE STARLIGHT REV A HRUIBA RALSTON, who makes her stellar bow to the English public in the British Lion/Republic production, “Storm Over Lisbon,” was one of Europe's foremost figure- skating stars prior to the present war. She was bom in Prague, capital of the now dismembered Czechoslovakian Republic. In addition to receiving her education in that historic Balkan Veracity, studied for eight years in a ballet dancing school. Her training as a dancer played a major part in shaping her career as a top-flight amateur figure skater. This factor, and three years' assiduous practice in London under outstand­ing professional instructors, laid the ground­work for Veras brilliant rise to fame. She was 13 when she won her first cham­pionship. the city title of Prague. In her first year of competition for the championship of her country' she won with consummate ease. For the next four years Vera held undisputed sway as womens amateur figure-skating cham­pion of the Czech Republic. With her reputation assured, Vera visited the United States and Canada in 1937. She enjoyed a triumphant tour lasting five months and then returned to Eurooe. War clouds soon began rumbling, however, and the skater realised that her future fay in America. She left Czechoslovakia in October of 1938, and resolved to make afresh start in that 'country. She was featured for a time at the Winter Sport Show held at Madison Square in New York, appeared for six months with an ice evue at the Hotel New Yorker, then joined the “Ice Vanities ”and toured with the show. When the Ice-Capades Company was formed J the spring of 1940 she was offered a contrt as one of the featured stars, and prompt accepted. It was while she was touring with the let Capadcs Company sometime ago that she became a cmitr cdrhrr. As a "girl without a country." immigration authorities ruled that her visitors permit had expired. When news of her plight made the front pages of the news- oapers. offers of marriage from American men poured in from every part of the country. The skater's case was taken to Washington, however, and satisfactorily settled. Vera took out nationalisation papers, and is now a fully- fledged American citizen. Vera studied dramatics in Europe, and has long nursed the ambition to make a name for herself as an actress. This ambition she realises in “Storm Over Lisbon.” She speaks English quite fluently, and has a charming voice. Her middle name is pronounced with the“ H ”silent. Dick Cordon
