Yes, even loved a dame and shot her father to get a story, and I got it, and I’m telling it. • • • She struggled loose from his embrace, leaped off his lap and chidingly said, “I catch on, you’re a ventriloquist.” But this time he didn’t give the coastguard a bum steer. He plunged a long knife into the unresisting body of the shark and through the jagged opening came hurtling the semi-uncon¬ scious body of the smuggled Chinaman—and then Hell broke loose.

Unusual Folder of Publicity Stories Free In handling so strong a theme as “I Cover the Waterfront” you lift the picture right out of the realm of ordinary publicity. Here’s a picture that demands something in the way of research. Will C. Murphy, a reporter with many years experience, has made an extensive study of newspaper files and pared down these water front stories, lifting out those of tremen¬ dous interest and excitement which parallel incidents occurring in the motion picture. These stories are so written that you can plant them in your local newspaper with ease. They are 1200 to 1500 words each and should be run in consecutive order so as to give a completeness to this unusual pub¬ licity angle. There are ten instalments of these fascinating waterfront stories and while in many cases actual names of people famous in the public eye are mentioned, in some instances, due to the dramatic revelations of these stories, fictitious names have necessarily been included in this re¬ porter’s revelations. Each story revolves on the angle that it is revealing the inside story of “I Cover the Waterfront” for the edification of the readers of the local newspapers.

Brief Autobiography of Max Miller I was born near Traverse City, Mich., February 9th, 1901, which makes me technically an Easterner. I remained there less than a year, moving west to Everett, Washington, then was yanked, just in the middle of the football season, to a ranch my father was trying to develop in Montana, in the Sitting Bull country, not far from the Canadian border. My first newspaper work started in the 8th grade, playing baseball during the day and running over to the office at night, writing about the games. In this way I, the second baseman, was fairly sure of printed notice in the morning newspaper, the Everett News. After the war, when universities were lenient to us veterans, I entered the University of Washington. Worked for the Seattle Star, then the Seattle Post-Intelligencer. Four years later, in 1923, I left for Australia on a lumber boat and worked on the Melbourne Herald. For the Australasian Syndicate, I went south to write about the South Sea Islands. I bummed around on small vessels and ended up with a frightful case of malaria. Doctors patched me up and to pay them I did articles for the N. E. A., while in Seattle and San Francisco; then came to the San Diego Sun. I have been here almost ever since, except for a trip to China during the war trouble there in 1927. ‘‘I Cover the Waterfront” is my first novel. COVER.
