A , head appeared over the landing — Mark's freckled face, above the swathe of a bath towel. "Oh, Mrs. Brlggs! . Mother's out In the yard. , She's peeling peaches for jam." The tall woman awlshed her way through the neat hall, with its oak stand harboring three or four discouraged looking umbrellas. She passed through the kitchen, taking a critical view of the white shelves covered in blue oilcloth. Then out to the porch. "Mrs. O'Dare! Ob, there you are. Just ran in for a minute." The woman under the maple tree, swaying back and forth gently In the old rocker, looked up and smiled at the newcomer. "Sit down— do!" She indicated a battered basket chair at her side. "Isn't it hot? 1 thought I'd do a bit of preserving. poesn't seem to matter how hot it gets — I always feel the urge; long about this, time." "You have got energy!" The epeaker eyed her hostess discontentedly. "I'm all tuckered out myself. Walking by from town, I just thought I'd come in and have a bit of gossip." "I'm glad you did," Mrs. O'Dare said cordially, pushing aside a wooden bowl of parings and rising. "Just sit here in the shade a minute while I put these things on the stove. Then I'm all through. I'll bring out something cool to drink." Her guest's half-hearted protest followed her into the shaded kitchen where, with a thoughtful fr.own, she consigned the ripe golden fruit to a blue enamel kettle, setting it over a low name. "What's that ole hell-cat want?"- * * * S HE] looked up, her band at her heart, to see her young son, attired now in bathing suit and dirty white slacks, signalling her from the doorway. ; "Mark, you scared me. Don't talk that way." "Well, she is tbat, isn't she? Always snooping into somebody's • business." Mrs. O'Dare shook her head reprovingly at him. "I'm going down to the river •with the kids. Mom. fie b.ack About 6." "Be careful, son." He gave her a peck on the cheek and she beard him whistling down the path. Then she turned her attention to the cooling drink she bad promised her visitor. Lemons were brought from the ice bos and presently from green glasses a tinkling tune sounded.' M My. that tastes good!" Laura BrJggs put her bead back, algbing gustily. There were two parentheses etched at eitbejr tide of her thin-lipped mouth. Her felack hair was drawa back from a face which must, in its time, have been lovely, but which now bore the marks of illness, and discontent. "You oughtn't to go walking In the sun. like that;" said; the gentle voice of the woman in blue gingham. "It's bad' for yon.** "I know. • I know." > Launr Briggs was impatient; "But IVs Rlssy—I hod to get the stuff fbr a" dress she wants to wear Friday night, and she's at. me all'the time. Will couldn't drive-..mei He had to go up to the city." She paused -and her listener waited for the declaration-which was sure to come. Laura Briggs never came to call unless she desired to unburden herself. ' "How're all your folks?" the caller wanted to know, . Mrs. O'Dare put back a strand of curling hair before she answered. She was a pretty little woman, an elder replica 1 of Monica. "They're fine," she assured Latira Briggs. "They're Just splendid. How's Rlssy?" But'it was plain the other.,had not come to discuss her daughter. Mark, reflected his, mother, had been right. Laura had something on her mind. Well, whatever it was, she would hear it soon. She rocked to and fro, waiting. "What's this we hear about Bill getting married?" demanded the newcomer with an arch smile. "You're such a deep one, we never hear the real news from yoo—" The woman in the rocker showed no sign that the blow struck home. Her expression was still admirably placid, undisturbed. "Well, you know Bill." she said lightly. "He's always had a lot of girls—but he's never really been serious. You Gertrude, do you?" don't mean Tt/TRS. BUIGGS sniffed disdain•"•*- fully. Of course, she said, she didn't mean Gertrude. No, it was the other, that blond from the Sweete Shoppe. Didn't Bill's mother know Bill's girl? "I've met—such a lot of them," protested Mrs. O'Dare, pretending to brush away a cobweb, avoiding the sharp eyes of the other woman. "I can't remember them all." "Somehow," said Laura Brisgs acidly, "I don't believe Bill's ever brought her to the bouse. You see," she paused to give her arrow its full flight, "you see, this one's married. 1 ' "M-marrled!" Edith O'Dare stammered over this. Then she was angry. She had always tried to see the best in Laura Briggs, had stood up for her when everybody else was furious at her, but this was really too much. Her Bill—and a married woman! Coldly she said, "I think you must be mistaken. I'm sure you must." She rose to her feet, a small, flashing guardian of her home, an angry hen brooding over her maligned chicks. She waited, withdrawn and a bit disdainful, for her caller to make her adieus. This Laura Briggs did rather badly. She was chagrined at the effect her news bad made. What she had expected, she could not say. Tears, perhaps. Harsh words for the errant son. curl oalty about the charmer, the blond siren. None ot these would Mrs. O'Dare accord her. Crestfallen, she withdrew. Left alone, the little mother Stormed Inwardly. Not that she bellejed tuer« truth in the fantastic story, ehe assured herself angrily. And yet— and yet Bill had been spending a great amount of time away from home these days. His absences bad been unexplained. Gertrude Hampstead had been very cool to Mrs. O'Dare whenever they had, met: .Had, In f»ct, looked the other way, pretending not to "see. • BlH-^-her boy — involved with n married woman! She groaned. Suddenly she felt a little sick and fa.lpfc. The heat of the day, the work she had been doing, and the blow she had just received, combined to defeat her. She was leaning against the door frame, looking white and ill, when Kay breezed in. "Mums! What on earth's tr " matter?" "I— it's nothing— I ]ust — " She put up her hand to her eyes, staggering in the bright kitchen. AY was thoroughly frightened. "Let me get you some water. Here, lie down on the sofa! That's better." Kay's face was sober now. She looked serious, responsible. "I'm all right." Her mother sat up, setting her mouth firmly. 'It'9 only — tell me this, Kay. Is :lieve any truth in the story about Bill and some married woman?" Oh, gosh!" Kay groaned. turning away. "Who told you?" •I don't like being kept in the dark this way," protested the mother. "You all know — everybody in town knows, apparently — and only I am left out." Monnie thought it would worry you," Kay explained, "We thought, or hoped anyway, that it would all blow over. BUI," said 4Cay, "has bad girls before this — " "But never one he was so serious about, eh?" "N-no." Kay admitted that. "I guess not. Honestly, she's not a bod sort, Mother. She was married to this man when uhe- was only 16. He's no good, I hear, and she's been supporting him. You can't blame her for wanting a divorce." "I can't blame her for anything," Mrs. O'Dare said steadily. "It's only that — " She could not finish the sentence. Bill, her BUI. mixed up in such an affair! She had hoped for great thing* for Bill, ever since he was a little boy. When bia father died and ie had bad to leave school her leart had ached for him. He was so bright, so earnest.

Miss Henry Talks on Topic, "Co-Operation" "Co-operation is necessary in order to ever achieve success," Miss Henry said during the chapel hour last Wednesday morning. "To be able to follow directions is the way you can put something across as an individual or school," she continued. "This was the reason why Magnolia was such a successful host at the District meet last Saturday, as they were able to follow directions. Every individual has his own contribution to make and the only way to do it is to adjust yourself to co-operate withothers." Aside from talking about adjustment and co-operation, Miss Henry reminded all students, -especially the seniors, that tK7s school term was almost completed and that everyone should try to make these last few weeks count. She said that any senior getting a black mark on his four year's work would be stamped all his life even when he enters into world affairs.

Fllp-thc-Frog Is Gone Hope Girl's Essay Printed by College "The South,"' an 'essay written by Virginia Dair, was one of five essays chosen for the "Taper," a magazine published by Rockford college every month. Virginia, who was graduated from Hope High School in 1932, is.a freshman in Rockford college, ROck- ford, Illinois. "The style of the article is written very uniquely; certainly not the stereotyped copy one sees frequently on articles of this kind. It is breezy, refreshing, and quite like our own Virginia. 'Huts",off to you, Virginia!" —B. Henry. , , , For months Miss Henry, with the aid of the Reconstruction Finance Icorporatldn' and certain individuals, has been working on the lily pool on the front campus of the high school. An intricately-hidden fountain and a bird bath were put in to add to the beauty. And last of all a -huge green frog was put in there, bought by Miss Henry herself. Now the frog has been stolen. Our big green 1 froy that, although it could neither hop nor roak, was becoming the pet of the whole school. And some one- hns tnk- n him *oWay without a thought of low we might feel over the loss of im. Doesn't it take a lot of pure, unadulterated nerve to walk up a teal part of a thing that someone worked so diligently and unceasingly o obtain? Miss Henry could have had the frog ocked up every night, but she trusted every one to leave it there untouched. We really don't think that any ono n school would take our frog. It must lave been some one else, and we sincerely hope that whoever it was will return him to-liis proper place.

Spring Car Care Aims for Safety Worn Tires Should Be Replaced, Ending Skid' ding and Blowouts This year spring car care has two important aspects—the usual steps fbr increased' efficiency, and elimination of the unsafe factors that caused on increased number of , accidents last year, according to Charles Harrell, of Hope Auto company, Firestone 'dealer. He gives here suggestions; 'from his experience with thousands of motorists. He takes up the.matter of safe tires first, advising that tire prices are bound to go up and now is the time to save money. "It will come as news to many motorists .that an old or worn tire is less safe now than at the height of winter; from now on fires will run hotter, and heat is their greatest enemy," he said. ,'Blowouts will be more common." The axiom that any car is only as safe as its tires is one that motorists should keep in mind, Mr. Harrell asserts. Unlike brakes and headlights, there are no legal speficications as to what is a safe tire. There is, however, a common-sense definition—a tiro with the non-skid tread worn off or a tire worn down to the fabric is unsafe. "Such tires should be replaced for safety of yourself and other motorists if for no other reason," he said. "But actualy it will cost you less money to replace worn tires than wait until they are punctured or go flat. The last 1000 miles in the 'average tire is worth only 39 cents, based on today's prices and mileages. New tires will improve the appearance and handling of your car, give added safety, and cost you less in the long run."
