He said, "You've got to help me. Got out, quick." She was dazed, pulled clown to earth, she stumbled out asking "But how—wnat can I do?" ' He said, "It's that kid—the grandmother can't help. You must." He was dragging her' up the steps, practically tearing her things from her. She saw the old woman, shaking, white to the lips standing by the crib wringing her treimupus hands. She saw the child ... heard its terrible struggle for breath, saw the little face contorted, with anxiety. ... ""' Jim barked at her. ; "You've had diphtheria?" "Yes, but—" He said, "No time to lose. Get into the kitchen, put water on to boil. Find me a sheet." She did not hear the other commands. She was staring at him She cried, "I can't, Jim, I can't ..." She felt faint. She said, again, stumbling toward the door! "I can't!" "My God, what are you made Of ... ?" he seized her wrists, hurting her, but she whimpered and fought him.

She thought: « 'isn't' fair, f hate' Illness, it disgusts nnd frightens me. She clutched the wire fiercely She thought . . . Drew .'. •. She could see people moving about against the lighted windows. She took a deep breath, slid into the driver's seat, started the car and drove home. No one would be there except Ellen in the back pf the house.

The taxi horn sounded on the frosty air. She fled downstairs, ner suitcase bumping. - The driver came forward to take it from .her. She said' gasping, "I have to catch the 11 o'clock to Boston." , "Lots of time, lady," said the driver, soothingly. •,, " • * * * AT midnight Jim and Emily "^ stood in the living room of- the Sanson house.

(A Washington dispatch, noting it is generally believed such a conference would also take up the question of administering liberated territories in Central Europe, said Czech President Eduard Benes might act as mediator between the Poles and Russians. Benes left London several weeks ago and was later reported to have arrived in Moscow.) A Swedish dispatch quoted a German spokesman as saying, meanwhile, that a German capitulation was impossible because, while Germany has been fighting on the defensive since 1D42, her armies still are battling outside the borders of the Fatherland. The German aim, he 'was quoted as saying "is .to exhaust the enemy to the point where he will be willing to acknowledge the position of the defender and make peace with him." Le^t they experience another news "blackout" while rumors of a big Allied conference "leak" around the world, British newspapers today filled columns with Axis and neutral reports that President Roosevelt, Prime Minister Churchill and Premier Stalin are meeting in the Middle East. The Daily Express filled front- page columns with reports from Washington, Istanbul, Ankara and Stockholm as well as Turkish, Budapest and German radio reports. Protests over the inept censorship and press arrangements at the North African parley are still echoing in the London press. The News Chronicle embellished them with a cartoon depicting three figures la- belled MQI (British Ministers of Information) squatted beneath blaring United Slates and Axis radios, the ears of one are stopped, th,e mouth of the second is stopped and the third is blindfolded. The cartoon is caplioned "hear no conference, see no conference, speak no conference." OUR LADY OF GOOD HOPE ®- CATHOLIp CHURCH Rev. f. T. Dollar-ton. Mass at JO o'clock every Sunday.

'Big inch'Treqks, Much Oil Is Lost Hamilton, O., Dec. 3W)—A break in "big inch," recently-completed transcontinental oil .pipeline, spread an unestimated but serious flow of oil through a section of country near here today. Initial reports said at least "40 miles of the oil have been lost," and that immediate efforts of engineers and repair crews were concentrating in staving off the hazard of fire. Oil was flowing into dry creed, a snjall stream. A wooden trestle of thfe main-line Chesapeake Ohio railroad crosses the creek within the oil-soaked area. The War Emergency Pipeline Corporation with main offices in Cincinnati, reported "we don't know how serious the break is. Our men are out on it now." The eastward flow of oil through the 24-inch line, recently estimated at 500,000 barrels daily, was cut immediately at Greensburg, Ind., 25 miles west of the point where the break occurred. Most pf the oil flowed through gulleys directly into the dry creek- bed and actual damage to farm land appeared to be slight. Farmers and emergency crews dammed the stream and thus salvaged a portion of the fuel. HQPp QQSPEU North Main and Ayenue D Paul R. Qastpn, Pastor Sunday School 9:45. Morning Worship—11.

Miler, El Dorado, stale American Legion commander, said today the juvenile delinquency phase of the Legion's child welfare program for 194.4 would be carried out by the 40 et 8 Society of the Veterans' Oranization. Pianist's Life on Tour Most Strenuous One Mrs. Ruth Pickard, who is to lie presented by the Friday Music club in a piano recital Friday, December 3, at the Hope High School auditorium at 8:15 is quite a person. She glows witli the same personality and charm that is. so evident Jn her playing." She is an interesting conversationalist and a delightful teller of experiences. Such as: "The 'trials of a pianist while on lour are many, though sometimes they later may seem very amusing. There are so many surprises in store for a pianist, such as a key that sticks, a pedal that won't work, of a piano that has one leg upheld by hymn books. This is "when a pianist is really envious of one who plays a stringed instrument for they can carry with them their own cherished instrument while a pianist often has to face a dilapidated piano," said Mrs.'Pickard. Travelling- by bus from 6 in the morning until 4 in the afternoon to fulfill an engagement at a college, Mrs. Pickard, exhausted by the trip, had one thought in mind, a bath, a rest, and supper on a tray quietly in her hotel room. With this she .could compose herself for the evening performance. But no, on arrival she was met by a reception com'miltee who for the next two hours took her on a tour of the city. Only time left for the bath and the quiet and peace of the .tray-supper in her room. But not even this was meant to be for arrangements had been . made for Mrs. Pickard to have dinner with the president of the college. "And so," said Mrs. Pickard, "I went to my recital in the daze of the. exhausted traveler. Once while playing in an open-air theater on a blistering hot day, Mrs, Pickard was in the midst of a brilliant passage when a cricket landed right into her lap. Summoning all the composure possible she had to wait for a more subdued passage so, with a flourish, she could brush the intruder away. Another interesting incident occurred while playing in Williamsburg, Va. Mrs. Pickard requested a chair, in place of the usual piano bench, on which to sit. And while policing in an off-hand way that the chair which was brought to her seemed a very fine piece ~6f furniture, she gave it no thought and played, as she said, "With my usual abandon.' 1 Later in the evening at a reception planned for her she was approached by a woman who inquired if the chair had been a comfortable one. "Oh, yes," she replied. "I aim so glad," said the woman, "For a wljile, watching you play,. I was worried. The chair is a priceless antique that belonged to my greatrgreat grandfather." "One of the greatest thrills" said Mrs. Pickard, "that comes to a pisnist-sis when they play with a symphony orchestra. The dynamic force, fire, and power of a symphony, all supporting you is very exhilarating. The big symphonies are very critical however, for they have been directed just so in their music and if your interpretation of a piece is different they are the first to criticize." Once while playing the Schumann Piano Concerto in D Minor with a small symphony Mrs. Pickard was to play a passage that was to be answered back and forth by obe and piano. Mrs. Pickard played her passage, there was no answer, again the passage appeared and again she played her part'with still no answer. The musician evidently had become tongue-tied. "Even in the smallest of towns there are always those who kno\y music from the inside, who have been born with music. It is to these that the pianist plays and because of these a pianist will stay up .to pitch and give pf their best." Jimmy Stewart Camera in England Somewhere in England, Dec. 3 — (UP)—Jimmy Stewart of the movies, now Capt. Stewart of the Air Force, "blew his lines" when he faced a motion picture camera today. Stewart was not making a film, but posing for a newsreel at his first British press conference. Stewart, now a commander of a United Slates Liberator bomber squadron in England, said, "I can't wait until I gel going." The former film star brought stacks of chewing gum and candy with him for English chjldren, but said he had not yet had time to meet any. He added that he had not even had time to visit the nearest village pub. English waitresses at the Eighth Bomber command headquarters wore flowers in their hair for Stewart's arrival and besieged him for autographs. He said he hoped to return to the movies after the war, but "by that time I may be playing Mickey Rooney's grandfather." Judges Warned About S.ekjng Hot Springs, Dec. 3 — UP}— The Arkansas Counly .fudges' Associn- lion was warned loday by its presN dent, G. 0. Smithers of Saline county, against seeking funds from the next legislature, Hp added, however/ -that when the "opp'ortune lime",'arrived the judges should seek the one-fourlh cent gasoline tax "still be denied them." "Gounly governmenl is the most important and often Ihe mosl 'neglected,^' Smilhers declared. He added that the original" five mills tax and revenue it produces for the counties was oulweighted by contractural claims against the counties. '•' Asserting present revenue spurc.es should be replaced as soon as thpy are eliminaled, Smithers expressed belief Arkansas would return to a "bone dry" status and Ihe counlies should be planning revenue source lo substitule: for liquor taxes. Writers of the 1874' conslitution did not contemplate the demands for services thai have been made qn county governments, he said. Lost Story of Lowell Bennett Tells of Attack (Lowell B.ennett of International News Service was missing .today with two other .war, correspondents who flew with the RAF on last night's Berlin attack. Bennett, representing the combined American press, wrote this story before the takeoff, delivering it to a rep- presenlalive of the British Ministry of Information for use if he did not return) >•>' i'to By LOWELL BENNETT Representina the .Combined American Press A British Bomber Station in the Midlands, Thursday, Dec. 2 — Berlin is going to be attacked again tonight by hundreds of four-eri- gined bombeis which will avalanche down tons of explosives and incendiaries "into the " Nazi heart and capital. It may be one of the most concentrated raids of the war. I am flying in one of three Lan- caslers which alone will drop hundreds of incendiaries as well;as 4,000-pound "cookies." With scores of others rising from surrounding airdromes we are about' to take off m the late afternoon to join a vast stream thun- dering'toward the European coast in the darkening sky This report is beiiig made ater our brief meeting.' It is written before we leave in the event "By For'Bolty" (Bennett's plane) and myself dp. not return to make a fuller eyewitness Account of the raid and its-effect; That the attack will be carried put as planned and prepared, it seems certain to this observer, for the thoroughness with which, the whole aspect pf defenses, route and weather was studied precludes fail- ua-e. And much more important to the airmen who are leaving — among some thousand who are participating in the vast offensive—was their own certainty the raid would.be a SUCCESS. The captain of "B For Bolty" is a Scottish flight Ijeutenant. The rest of the crew of seven, with exception of one Scotch- Canadian als.o are from Scotland.
