"Been wondering when I was going to have a chance to talk to you," he said. "Where'ye you been hiding yourself?" Jauet said, "Oh!—you surprised me!" She met his eyee and then evaded, bending to straighten the pile of magazines. He came a step nearer. "You haven't been trying to avoid me, have you?" he -asked. "Why, of course not!" So quickly defensive that the worda belled themselves. "I've been busy, I guess.. Ton know J work here." Rolf laughed. "And Just now, apparently, nothing is quite so Important as those magazines. But they looked very nice the way they were, I thought. Come on. Sit down. Is there any reason la the world why we shouldn't talk to each other for a few minutes?" "No-o." Janet hesitated. There were reasons but she couldn't tell him what they were. The little fires burning in her cheeks. That excited sensation when ber eyes met his. Oh, yes, there were reasons why Janet should turn and flee from that room but instead she sat down in a rose brocade chair. "That's better!" He stood look- Ing down at ber, smiling. "You're very decorative in that chair. Becoming background. And that's a good-looking suit you're wearing, too. On tbe whole, you're looking unusually attractive! He was the same Rolf. Exactly the same. When he paid compliments you could, never be quite euro whether he really meant them or was Joking, He pulled a chair forward, sat down, and drew from his pocket a silver ci- garet case. "Have one?" he asked, flipping open the cigarette case. Janet shook her head, Sbe saw that tbe case was & new one and handsome. Suddenly It became a symbol. A symbol ot all tbe changes tbat had taken place tween them. "Listen, Rolf," she said quickly. "I can't sit here talking to you. You know I can't. Tbe only reason I'm In this bouse is because I'm paid to work here. There's one thing, though, I want to tell yon.

Why, It's Just the tbIng tor you! Lots better than working down town-in an office. Mrsi Curtis thinks a lot of yon, too. I've heard her telling Betty she couldn't get along 'without you!" : His concern was genuine. Tbe laughter was gone from the dark eyes now. "Promise me you won't do that, Janet," he urged.' "You really think It's all right for me to stay?" "Of course I do! I want you to." "I don't know," Janet said doubtfully. "1 don't know exactly what I should do." "Then let me decide for you! 01933. ^^ NEA SERVICE, ING how the bills were paid. In one respe<jt Betty bad Instituted economy. Sbe had only one maid for tbe six room apart* mem. Consequently when sh« entertained It toon became a. habit for her to telephone her mother to send over Bertha or the cook. Lucy, who admired Mrs. Carlyle greatly and considered be? home equal to anything the had seen in the movies, was only too glad to go there to serve. Betty found errandi for Janet, too. She appropriated.her services as casually as she took everything else that she wanted. Scarcely d day passed when Janet Was- not instructed by telephone to run over for a shopping list or to take care of some club obligation Betty bad forgotten until the last minute. • * • O N such visits Janet almost always found young Mrs. Carlyle in a gay lounging costume leaning back In one of the low, modernistic chairs, smoking and gossiping with some of ber friends. The cocktail shaker was always In evidence. There was likely to bo dance muslo coming You've made a real place for J'» % he rad7o and often thi b boisterous. How did they keep It up. Janet You needn't worry about tbat. Only we can be friends, I hope. There isn't any reason why we shouldn't be, is there?" There was a flash of that quick, winning smile. Janet said, "No,' mlled, too, and the j color deepened in her cheeks. i "Then let's shake on it." I Their bands met. Janet said { quickly, with a voice unsteady] from emotion, "I've got to go now! I—I'm late." In another moment she was hurrying up the stairs. She did not stop until the door of her own room had closed behind her, Then she sank down on the edge ot the bed. She was cold and every bit of strength seemed to have ebbed from her body. She clenched her bands together tightly, shivering though her heart was pounding. "I woa't see him again!" Janet resolved, "I mustn't let know I feel, the way I do!." him OHE didn't go down stairs again •^ until she had beard Mrs. Curtis telling someone that Mr. and Mrs. Carlyle were dining out. Then Janet bathed, and dressed and went down to the library. Rolf proved to be as good as hla word. Three days later be and Betty moved Into their apartment and during those three days! Janet saw him only once. He was with Betty then, on their way to some sort ot engagement. He was wearing dinner clothes and Betty's wrap had slipped back to reveal her newest evening gown, a bizarre creation ot coral and gold. Janet passed them on the stairway. Betty was speaking to Rolt and did not even glance toward the other girl. Janet, after that first swift look, kept ber eyes from meeting tbe man's. With tbe young couple gone, she bad hoped that tbe household would return to Its quiet orderliness but this did not prove true. There were still parties. There was still Betty and Betty's demands. Where all tbe money was coming from to maintain the Carlyles* elegant new borne Janet bad no idea. She knew Mrs. Curtis bad paid a year's lease on tbe apartment and furnished it. But there were other expenses. Though Rolf was still at the Atlas Advertising Agency It was unbelievable tbat bis salary could meet tbese demands. Janet bad Beard Betty had money in ber owo name, Pernaps tbat was] whose mornings, evenings seemed devoted to parties? Of course they did no work but to Janet the constant round of gaiety in Itself seemed strenuous. How could a young man like Rolf get to the office In the morning ready for a day's work night of festivities .that ended until dawn? Surely there must be some quiet evenings, some time for rest. "They're young," Mrs. Curtle would say fondly. "There's time enough to be serious later on. 1 want my little girl to have everything In the world to make hei happy." Mrs. Curtis herself wasn't looking so well these days. There was one evening when she was dressing, preparing to go to tbe Thorntons, that Janet rushed to the telephone to call Dr. Roberts. The physician came and prescribed two days of complete rest In bed. Mrs. Curtis, frightened, promised to obey these Instructions faithfully but on the second day when Betty called and insisted her mother should come to nil out a table at her bridge party Dotty, as usual, bad ber way, Mrs. Curtla arose and dressed and set off for the bridge party aud Janet was left to herself. U wns June and tbe season'* flrst hot spell bad set In, Tbe air, both Inside and out ot tbe house, was stiffling. Janet bad finished ber work and considered how to spend tbe afternoon. Sbe felt an impulse to get away (rom the bouse. 'There was no place to particular to go. Suddenly Janet decided to see a movie. H would be cool in tbe dark theater, it would be restful, too. Sbe hurried upstairs and put on • new blue linen dress and wlde- , brimmed white hat. Sbe was wearing white oxfords, and tb« costume was becoming, Janet walked to the bus stop aud rode down to tbe business district. It was better bere but the theater would be cooled by artificial breezes. Janet wai within bait a block ot tbe tbe- ater when a window display caught ber eye.

Weekly Sunday School Lesson Ministering to Jews and Gentiles Text: Mark 7:24-37 Tlie International Uniform Sunday School Lesson for April 2. FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH Wallace R. Rogers, Pastor The congregational singing at the First Baptist church is an inspiration. That is especially true of the evening .services when a great chorus choir leads. On last Sunday everting there were more than 35 voices in the choir, and the old familiar hymns were used all through the service. • The special music for Sunday evening has been arranged by Mr. Horace Kennedy, principal of the Guernsey school, and will be given by atrio of people from that community. Mr. Kennedy, Mr. E. R. Brown, and Miss Willie Hayes will sing two numbors. The pastor Will preach at both morning and evening worship hours, using at the morning service the subject, "The Inescapable Deity," a study of the prologue to the Gospel according to John. The evening subject will be, "No Other Choice." The services on Sunday evening will be changed from the old schedule to the following hours: B. Y. P. U will meet at 7 o'clock, worship hour at 8 o'clock. Mrs. Carlton and the choir are spending a great deal of time in preparation for the cantata to be given on Easter Sunday evening. Mrs. Carlton is throwing all of her enthusiasm for music into the work, and is welding together a choir that will be a credit to Hope. BY WM. E. GILROY, D. D. .Editor of The Congregationallgt There is u world friendship lesson, and if the world ever needed lessons in friendship it is at the present hour. The problem of creating friendship In the world is probably just the same as it always wns. insofar as it means the breaking down of pride and prejudice and the barriers that keep psople from mutual recognition and mutual understanding. But the problem in Its extent has become different from that in any former age. In fact, it might be said to have changed within a generation, and even within a decade. When steam navigation was discovered intercommunication between nations and peoples suddenly advanced far beyond anything that the world had known before, the telegraph and The Invention of the cable also brought nations and peoples into immediate communication; but such communication was greatly limited both geographically and In the number of people whom it affected. But now, without the need of poles or wires or lines of transmission of any kind, the power of radio has transcended land and sea. A recent visitor to India has pointed out that there are two broadcast systems in that country, one of which makes the whole of that vast population potentially accessible to broadcasts from Russia. Missionaries tell us also that one of the acute problems in mission lands today is the prevalence of American movies which ore uncensored and often of the most objectionable type and which are doing much to give to foreign peoples sordid and false representations of true American standards and the finer aspects of American life. When we think of the power for good, or evil, of all these circum- FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH W. E. Testerman, Pastor William Allen White, editor, The Emporia Gazette, has given us his lew of the Bible school which is well worth considering. He said: "The Commandments and the Golden Rule conduct. The aspirations of Cjhris- .endom rise out of the Golden Rule. :n that is the goal for which men aspire, "In America, the study of the Ten lommandments and the Gollen Rule may not be pursued in our public schools. The Sunday school supplies he need which the public school denies. The child who does not go to Sunday school, who has no knowledge of the source out of which our civil- .zation sprung, who is ignorant of the vast literature called the Bible which climaxes in the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule is not ready to do his part in our American democracy. He starts handicapped, a failure predestined. The Sunday school is the best preparation for peace and stability that the world can make." Parents, see that your child gets that foundation which is fundamental for later life and character building. An invitation is extended to all to attend the Bible school of the First Christian church. There are classes for all ages and well qualified teachers. Bible school, 9:45 a. m. Morning worship, U a. m. Young People's Society of Christian Endeavor, 6:45 p. m. Evening worship, 7:30 p. m. The pastor will preach at both services. The subject for the morning sermon will be, "The Church of the New Testament." The public is invited. April 9, 10, 11, Miss Adeline Goddard, regional secretary and director of Religious Education for Oklahoma and Arkansas will be here. She will preach at the morning hour of April 9th and be available for conferences with all workers during her visit in Hope. ' It is hoped that all workers of the church and Bible school will '•( rt-serve those dales for that purpos:;. stances that are making the whole world more essentially one community, and even a smaller place so far as communication is concerned than Uny single country formerly has been, We must surely realize the obligation that rests upon all people of Christian spirit and good will to promote friendship and good understanding, not only between individuals, but between nations and peoples, if We are to save the world from the effects of prejudice and narrowness and selfishness. Here in our lesson we have a typical example of race prejudice, A woman had come to Jesus with the request that he would heal her sick, and probably demented, daughter. The woman was Greek and a victim of Jewish prejudice just in the way that people of minority races arc often vlf- tims of the prejudice of dominant groups in modern countries. Jesus, apparently recognizing this prejudice, referred to it,;not as one might suppose from the record, expressing it himself, nor even as some have said, testing the woman's faith, but speaking of it with an apparent harshness that undobutedly his manner belied. Did he not, in fact, refer to the prejudice in such an extreme way, saying to the woman, "It is not meet to toko the children's bread and cast it to the dogs," only that he might rebuke the prejudice? For he was about to perform a miracle of healing for the child of this woman, and if he had any other purpose in mind he surely would have refused" to exercise his power on behalf of a stranger. ' The real lesson is to bs found in what Jesus actually did. It is the spirit of Jesus to break down barriers and to bring men and women of all sorts and conditions into relationships of mutual love and mutual helpfulness. The modern world may stilHook to the Galilean for the way out of its visions, its prejudice, arid its conflicts of hate. Sweet Potato Is Resourceful Crop Easily Grown, and Has Some Value, Says Experiment Station The sweet potato is probably the most accomodnting crop for Arkansas, states G. W. Ware, assistant director in charge of the University of Arkansas, Fruit and Truck Branch Experiment Station. This crop is easily grown under most conditions, is valuable as food and feed, and always has some kind of sale or trade value. The average farmer can well afford to grow a moderate acreage of sweet potatoes every year. For five years the Fruit and Truck Branch Experiment Station has been experimenting with the various problems of sweet potato growing, trying to determine what variety is best, when to plant, how thick to set, and what kind of fertilizer, if any pays. Some very interesting results have been obtained. ^ "' Fourteen~"varieties have been tested. The Porto Rica and Nancy Hall, because of market preference and custom, are the best varieties for commercial and table use. The Triumph, a light yellow, white yellow, white flesh variety is much more productive, however, and is especially recommended for stock feed. Since the average farmer feeds a good portion of his potatoes it would probably be a good idea to plant two varieties, one for table and shipping purposes, the other for feed. Results show that early setting pays. Potato slips set the latter part of April have doubled the yield of those set in late May and early June. Large slips are preferable to small ones; SQ in order to "set well developed slips early in the spring, potatoes should be bedded early with some kind of bottom heat. Sweet potato yields havu been materially increased through the use of a good grade of complete fertilizer. per acre where no fertilizer was used, compared with 159 bushels per acre where 1000 pounds of a 5-10-5 fertilizer was applied. The 1000 pounds of fertilizer costing approximately $16.00 applied, gave an increased yield of 99 bushels per acre. On this basis, fertilization would be profitable when sweet potatoes could be sold at about 17 Vi cerjts per bushel or more. Less fertilizer is required for early plant- Ing, and the general recommendation for South Arkansas is to apply 400 to 700 pounds of 5-0-5 per acre. Tlie fertilizer should be applied ssveral days before setting, and thoroughly stirred in the soil to avoid injury to the slips. Results of the fruit, truck and various tests with field crops can be obtained by visiting or writing the Fruit and Truck Branch Experiment Station ot Hope. Bankers to Fight Arkansas Refund Litigation Likely to Be Started for Investor! Who Bought Bonds NEW YORK-Wall Street bankers who marketed approximately $84,000,000 of state of Arkansas highway bonds in the past few years admitted Wednesday they are organizing to take all legal steps possible to protect holders of the securities as a result of Governor Futrell's action in signing a refunding issue for the bonds. The Arkansas bonds were marketed by a syndicate headed by Halsey Stuart & Co., executives of which said the bond situation would be tafeen up for investigation by the law firm of Thomson, Wood & Hoffman. Governor Futrell signed the bill authorizing an issue of 25-year bonds amounting to $146,000,000 bearing 3 per cent interest to be offered in exchange for the original bonds.

The senator said he regretted.^ the failure of the legislature to provide for the needs of the public schools, a failure which he attributed to the impossible of raising new taxes in the face of present economic conditions.

Woman Killed Mrs. Edna Boyett aged 26, was killed nstantly when her small home was alown away at Paschall Mill. Her insband who was in a nearby store, picked up her body, partly submerged n a pool of water, about 100 yards 'rom the house. Her two. sons, Roy, eight, and Laverne, four, who were in the home when the storm struck, were injured. Hoy was brought to an El Dorado hos- jttal Where 'physicians 'said his "condi- ion is critical. Laverne was not inured seriously. The storm laid flat an area about a quarter mile square. Trees were twisted and uprooted, and 'every home within a half-mile area was damaged. Roofs were lifted off or crushed in by flying debris. Roads were blocked by fallen trees or wreckage. Family Has Close Call The Mark Gibson family, whose home adjoined the Boyetts', escaped injury by fleeing into a storm house. No trace of their home was left on the site. Pieces of the house were scattered along the highway and across the road in an open field.

Following the Versailles conference, en route home to Japan, Matsuoka went thousands of miles out of his way jusi to visit the grave of his Old friend. ,Hls classmates at the University of Oregon haven't forgotten the brilliant Japanese youth of 20 who always had the right answers when the rest of the class failed, In the class of MOO in Its. night schopl, this university's most distinguished alumnus was graduated IB law. And when he visits the present campus at Eugene, his alrria mater will confer on hirtl an honorary degree before he leaves for Japan. "Matsuoka saves our hides on many occasions," declares a classmate. Ore L. Price, now manager of the Orfegori- ian here. "Most everyone in otlf night law class had to work days, and sometimes we weren't so well prepared. But not Matsuoka. He always had the right answers. He rated second in our class". As a matter of fact he ought to have been first, but in those days the Instructors felt it better to have an American first." Other classmates recall that the Japanese grew fond of stud poker and developed great talent for the game. Self-Made Man Born in a .small Japanese town, of a family which had once been prominent but fell on evildays, Matsuoka knew thin times in his youth, and his career was self-made. As a boy he came to America for an. education. But with his schooling finished, the Japanese diplomatic service beckoned. In 1904 he passed the'examinationsfor that service with honor. He did secretarial work for Viscount Goto and Prime Minister Kara, and served,in the consular service in China, ,and the embassy secretarist in Washington and Moscow. He is, familiar With,: the difficult Manchuriari problems at first hand as secretary to, the Leased Territory, and later as vice president' of the South Manchurian railway. He was then elected to Parliament as a member of the Seiyukai party and has heldjhigh government place ever since. Matsuoka, a diplomat of the new school',! is franki.;outspoken, blunt, yet sympathetic to other peoples' hopes. His schoolday dream—to be interpreter of Japan to the rest, of-the world— Was come true. His West coast friends who knew the schoolboy and the youth, believe the.man-will hardly fail to foster better.relations between the country;of his birth and the country that nurtcred his youth.

Bank of U.S. Crash Told in New Book Bruce Catton Reviews "Little Napoleons and Dummy Directors" ., By BRUCE i CATTON NEA' Service Writer For , an extreme example of what a combination of foolish optimism, plain incompetence and outright piracy can do to a solid, well-established bank, you can hardly go to a better place than "Little Napoleons, and Dummy Directors," by M. R. Warner. This book tells the -almost unbelievable story of the colossal crash of the Bank of the United States in New York. That bank closed its doors in the fall of 1930, leaving 400,000 small depositors holding the sack. Just the other day its president and vice president, Bernard K. Marcus ahd Saul Singer, went to Sing Sing prison. The Bank of United States, Mr. Werner points out, was organized in 1913 by J9seph Marcus, an honest and intelligent Russian immigrant who had been banking in a small way in New York for a number of years. He died in 1927, and until that time the bank was everything that a bank cught to be. Then his son Bernard, in association with Singer, took things ovei\ and the fun began. The bank began to expand. Affiliated investment companies sprang up and flourished. An amazingly blind and complacent board of directors let Bernard and Singer do precisely as they pleased. A chain of now-you.see- it-now- you- don't hocus-pocus began which is almost too complicated for the lay reader to follow and almost too brazen and conscienceless for him to believe.
