M, *nd 4 p. m, i*' *>•'> "George whispered a quick good-bye." ^S'SOON AS THE woman who brought George's forged papers left, Kress got out the Opel car and drove George to Kpstheim. He would have to spend the night at a home for rivcrtnen. With the papcfs he hail, that would be the safest place. George whispered a quick good bye and sauntered along the embankment among a crowd of people who were enjoying Sunday anil the autumn sun. He could have crossed the hexrbridge and hired a room at a rivertnan's hotel. Even if there was a raid his passport would protect him. But, afraid of getting involved in questioning, "He Irudged toward the inn." he-decided to spend the night.on the right bank of tne river and board his ship early in the morning, The nearest inn was called "The Angel"; a wreath of brown leaves above the sign indicated that new wine was being served here. George went in and sat down in a diminutive garden. He sat close to the wall, his back toward the garden. When a waitress put some new wine before him, lie said: "Why, 1 haven't ordered yet." She picked up the glass and asked: "Well, for Heaven's sake, what do you intend to ordtrf" After a little pause, George said: "New wine," and both of them laughed. She put "George looked at her a itcond time." the glass directly in his hand. He drained the wine in one gulp. "Another glass, please!" "Now you just wait yout turn." She served some other guests at the next table. Half an hour passed. The waitress looked at George briefly several times. The last guests went from the garden into the taproom. "I hope he's left the money on the table," thought the waitress. She went out to sec. He was still sitting there. "Don't you want to drink your wine inside?" she asked. George looked at her a second time. She looked familiar to him, even intimately so. Of what woman of bygone days did she remind him? "No, "The Elite Guard men Were trooping in!" you may bring me my wine out here, if you will," ht answered. The garden being empty now, George sat facing the Inn and waited until the waitress came back with his drink. He hadn't been mistaken, he liked hcr-ns.much as he could like anything now. "Why do you keep rushing about all the time? Her reply made no imprint on George's suddenly whirling brain. A motorcar ,liad stopped In the street, and a whole flock of Ulite GmrJ men were trooping into the garden. (Continued tomorrow) P-/S.

KIDS BORROWED AM AWTI-AIRCRAFT" GUN FROM GAMP ROYCB TO HELP STMULATP INTEREST IN TNEIRBONP- November Is Time to Mail Xmas Gifts Delivery ot the nnnunl flood of Chrlslmtis gifts nncl cards on time, always a serious problem 1 , "will be more than a problem this year — it will be an impossibility — unless Christmas mailings are made largely in November," Postmaster General Frank C, Walker warned today. "Transportation facilities nre burdened to the' limit with war materials and personnel, and the Postal Service has sent more than thirty- one thousand experienced employees into the Army and Navy'," Mr. Walker said. "The only solution to the Christmas problem is: MAIL IN NOVEMBER. Mark your parcels, 'DO NOT OPEN UNTIL CHRISTMAS. 1 That Is the only way to avoid disappointment on Christmas Duy not only for many civilians but also for millions of members of the armed forces who nre still in this country. "It is also the only way to avoid the possibility of n Christmas emergency In the transportation and postal services. If the public will cooperate by mailing their Christmas parcels DURING NOVEMBER, we can handle a small vol ume of light, last-minute mailings, such as cards, up to December 10— but we can do that'and avoid an emergency only if November is really 'Christmas Mailing Month'." Postal officiiils pointed out that the volume of mail now is far above any previous records, that railway ; cars by the hundreds have been diverted to war service and that ' the air lines have only about half as many planes as they once operated. More than two hundred thousand extra temporary employees normally are employed to help with the holiday postal rush. This year, the extra employees will be largely women and high school boys and girls who are unable to work the long hours usually required and whose work will be relatively slow. To deliver the Christmas mails on time, therefore, it is necessary that mailings be spread out over a longer period so that available transportation equipment and postal personnel can be used during more weeks. It will be utterly impossible to make the deliveries by Christmas if mailers wait until the last three weeks before the holiday, as in normal years. There is another reason for shopping and mailing earlier than ever before.. Retail stores are shorthanded. Purchasers can avoid shopping in crowded stores, long waits for service, and other inconveniences of late shopping if they buy now. They will also doubtless have a better choice of merchandise than will be available later. Postmaster General Walker observed that his warning is not an attempt to tell the public what to do; it is only an advance notification of what will happen if they mail late. He feels that the public is entitled to the facts, and that when they know them, they will decide to HAIL IN NOVEMBER. tftrefe RIALTO SUNDAY.MONDAY' Lou Costello m 'IT AIN'T HAY' MASS PRODUCTION ORIGIN Eli Whitney, in 1798,4ook a government contract to manufacture rifles.

He drove up in his battered car, parked it and ascended the steps. He liked this old house, the light shining from its polished Windows. He liked Ellen who ushered him in with the information that the Doctor would see him presently and who looked him up and down in a forthright manner. She said, .showing him into the beautifully proportioned drawing room, "If you'll wait here, Doctor?" Someone came in the room and he turned from the contemplation of the Adam mantelpiece . . . and exclaimed in astonishment. Because he remembered her very well, the tall girl with the dark hair and eyes so luminous and unusual in her healthy pallor. . . . "It can't be," he cried . . . "it can't be Emily Hall!" He seized both her hands and shook them, he even put his arms around her in exuberance . . . "are you any relation . . .?" She said, "Just a daughter. Sit down, Jim, it's.good seeing you." A • good student nurse, hard working, helpful. When he'd entered the hospital in which she was training he'd felt pretty cocksure. But practice and theory differ. Emily had helped show him that. He'd grown to know and like her. They'd been out together a few times. But of course there'd been that senior nurse. Emily was asking about her now. "What happened to Sally N«w- eotnbe?:! He grinned. He'd gotten over Sally Jong ago although once he'd thought he'd die of her. "Believe it or not, she married someone else." ' 'They laughed and then Emily said, soberly, • "I hope you'll like it here 1 kn6w you'll like working with my father, Jim, he's— one of the best." "I'm sure I shall, I'm pretty keen ... but look, it hasn't been settled, -and frankly I'm scared." * * * CHE sat down on the long sofa, ^ beckoned him to sit beside her. "You needn't be. You have all' the qualifications he's looking for . . . youth, health, devotion to your job, the sort of ambition that doesn't mean big money or specializing — You see, I remember the talks we used to have, you always said you wanted to be a G. P. in a small town. Naturally when you went with Doctor Elkins I thought you'd changed your mind." "I hadn't. It was a chance, and I had to have some sort of an income." Doctor Hall's great voice boomed through the house. He was demanding— "Emily— Ellen— where's that boy . . .?" "That won't be the last time you'll hear that," prophesied Emily. She broke off, "There's Nancy," she saidi But Jim had already seen her, her bright hair glowing against the dark paneling in the hall. She was coming into the room now, she was saying, "Father's calling you, Doctor Thompson." • #!My sister," explained Emily— "Nancy— this is Jim." ' '/So I gathered." She gave him a cool, small hand, looked him up and' down. She said, mildly, "He's really very good-looking.' 1 Me wfts, If ?6u like them tall and leah, with a stubborn chin, unruly red hair, and blazing blue eyes. He held her hand and grinned down at her. He was saying, 'Thanks, ahd may I say—" "You may not," said Emily, "I'll take you in to Dad." "She's like that," said Nancy. "But there will be lots of time to finish the sentence." * * « CHE laughed and turned away. • Following Emily to the wing which housed the doctor's office Jim said, on a deep breath, "What a gal—she's not in the least like—" "Go on and say it," said Emily, Without rancor, "she's not in the least like me." He said, "I didn't mean— It'a just that you're so different." "Of course." "Look, I haven't asked about you—are you married or any. thing?" "Not married. I'm on the Visiting Nurse staff here in Cranberry," she said. "And—Nancy—?" "Not married either," said Emily soothingly. "And not on any staff. Her time's her own. She's been away for a few years, she just returned home recently. Here's the office." She opened the door, smiled at her father and Jim walked in. The door closed behind him. Nancy was waiting for her, and drew her into the small living room, where Millicent was writing letters at an old desk. "He's cute," she said definitely. "Any designs?" asked Emily, smiling. "Not a one. He's more up your; alley, Pet. You'd like love in a cottage or over a garage smelling of disinfectant and ether or whatever it is it would smell of," said Nancy, "No, poor young doctors aren't in my line." "They were in mother's," Emily, reminded her. "That's why," said her sister definitely. Millicent spoke, not turning. She said, "Nancy's practical." "Very," said Emily, laughing.

Gaston, pastor of Hope Gospel Tabernacle, spoke at Hope Rotary club's luncheon in Hotel Barlow today noon on the subject "Making a Living or Making a Life." Merely grubbing for money does not make a full, contented or really useful life, he said, pointing to the experience of men who, devoting th? first half of their lives to ammassing wealth, found that the last'half was occupied by the business of keeping it. The inspiration of frjendships acquired by unselfish seryi.c'e is a necessary leavening inflLte,npe on every human life, the pastor concluded. The Rev. Mr. Gaston was introduced on a program arranged by Robert,. M. Wilson. Ted Jones was presiding officer.

Comedian Goes on With Show Despite Grief Hollywood, Nov. 5 — iff)— Comedian Lou Costello's return to radio after nearly eight months' absence induced by illness was no festive occasion for the chunky little funny man with the highpitched voice. "Butch" — Lou Costello, Jr. — was dead. The actor's infant son drowned In the swimming pool at the Costello estate in- nearby Van Nuys a few hours before the broadcast. But Costello, following the trouper's tradition that the audience must not know what twists in his heart while the show.goes on, insisted upon making the scheduled appearance last night despite the tragedy. Lou quipped and squealed as usual with Partner Bud Abbott. He even carried off a scripted gag about life insurance. Comedian Mickey Rooney stood, by, lest Costello falter, but the veteran of vaudeville, stage and films took his lines unflinchingly and rinet every cue. There were tears in his eyes when, after the half-hour broadcast, he was led to his car by his physician, Dr. Victor Kovener, who had advised him to forego the ordeal of making the radio appearance. Costello was rehearsing at NBC yesterday afternoon when 'informed his son, who would have been a year old Saturday, had crept from a playpen and fallen into the pool. For an hour and a half a fire department inhalator squad worked vainly to revive the child. Costello recently recovered from a long illness with rheumatic fever. He and his wife, Ann, have two daughters, Carol "Lou, 5, and Patricia Ann, 7. They have .been married 13 years. • At conclusion of the broadcast Abbott told the radio audience of the tragedy and commended Costello's fortitude in refusing to be replaced on the show. "His grief," said Abbott, "is the greatest that can come to a man. I am.sure you all join me in praying~tribute to a great trouper." Singing Sunday at Unity Baptist Church A community singing session will be held at the Unity Baptist Church Sunday at 2:36 p. m. The Henshaw and Odom quartets and other noted singers will be present.
