"Fine, Captain! Now I'll bother you for my rifle crates. Don't be surprised at anything that happens when I get them ashore. Perhaps I may be able to call back after my engagement-" He snapped his hand with military precision bringing a dozen hard-cased miners over the rail armed with pick handles in their belts. They placed themselves around the shipment, lifted the cases as though they were carrying coffins. Crotch watched them go., knowing he had committed himself to a course that would make his future difficult. Melott had genoxous- ly sided him in this, but Jim had been a lifelong friend. Dozens of hotheads along this river would ba eager to take a pot shot into his pilot-house. The price would have to be paid for takin? sides. As soon as Lane's men bit-the cargo-packed earth of the landing one of .Burke's bullets. Ironically a p i c t u r e flamed Strip, rushing figures of Burke's fighters bore down. They came howling out of a blanket of darkness until they completely encircled Lane's cases, giving his men no chance for retreat except to return to Crotch's boat. But Lane had selected his men wisely. These were picked ior their bror.d shoulders, their arms of iron; men whose sentiments were unyielding and fierce, who had at home a brother or father fighting across Crotch's still hot mind. He saw Queenie walking up to Dreyfus; fear, shook and yet a gentleness were registered on her' face. She wouldnurse him with a tenderness this stupid wound Burke had inflicted would make a hero of Mm in Queenie's eyes, knitting them more closely together. At the same time he himself had killed the man she once had loved. "You did me a turn," he said slowly. "Friend, you did me a turn." "No, I believe it's the other way. If you hadn't killed Burke he would have got me. I'm no hand at this kind of ;iob." They stood dead still while the notes of a bugle struck full force. Crotch m u r m irr e d. "I believe Lane's done it!" They moved swiftly to the rail and looked over into the landing strip with its clusters of men sitting on the ground nursing their heads. Lamplight from the Casa Amarilla washed the scene; in all directions Crotch could see miners running toward the utter darkness at the camp's edges.

They formed a tight core around the cases, offering no quarter. They swung their pick handles with wicked strokes, dropping the first 'onrushing wave to reach them, eager now to break from their- encirclement after the onrushing rebels.'Lane held Ihem in check, and still Burke's men came on : in •undimintshed fury, shouting their lusty yells and brandishing clubs. Each of Lane's small, circle faced odds of 10 o 1, never flinching. Then Crotch did what he swore he-never would do. He shouted to his own Cocopshs: '(Down and lend them a hand." Once news of this spread along the river landings lie was doomed. Crotch had planned on holding his crew aboard out of respect to Sug. ar 'Logan's politics, as a last protection for his steamboat. Now he sent his Indians winging into the fight with their winging into the wood. China Boy and Melott raced after- them, each roaring a battle cry of his own choosing. Melott had made this unnecessary choice and his Cocopahs and scores of Lane's Unionists were hard on their heels. Lieutenant Lane stood alone, leaning heavily against his rifle crates, his uniform slashed to ribbons. Some where in camp he had discovered a miner who could sound the horn; from somewhere else he had picked up an 1847 bugle. Of the original 13 men who had gone down the gangplank carrying the rifle crates Lane was the last man standing. The fight ho h&d presented, the posture of him so ragged and tired, imparted pride to Crotch. of; the schedule makers, there are conflicts between two dramas on two different nights so the viewer who might like to watch all eight can see only six. One of the conflicts, of course, is that betwene the Robert Mont gomery Show, which stnrts at 9:30 p. m., E'ST, on NBC Monday and Studio Ore, which begins half an hour later on CBS. The other is between Television Theater on ABC starting at 9:30 p. m. Thurs day and Video Theater an NBC half an hour later. Fortunately for those who like the onehour plays there are no conflicts for Television Playhouse on NBC Sunday night. Television Hour on ABC Tuesday night, Tele vision Theater on NBC Wednesday night and Climax on CBS Thursday night. One that has shown particular improvement is the Sunday night Television Playhouse on NBC wI1h many' examples of fine original writing, although there has been a tendency toward too steady a diet of earthy plays overweighted with social' significance.

Beside Lane a miner clutched his throat and then went plummeting underfoot. The Lieutenant raised his dra- good pistol. Crotch followed the aim of Lane's gun, caught sight of Geis, the bush-bearded miner, in the wash of lamplight from the saloon. Lane saw him, too; : his gun cracked and Geis fell together slowly like an emptying pack of wheat. Crotch caught a low word dropped from Goss's lips, wheeled to see his mate stalking aft toward the' engine pit. Goss had drawn his ph'tol: • • . Crotch drew his pistol, following in Goss's footsteps.

He opened his bread palms to the milling officials. "You s*e, gentlemen. Crotch and company have helped put down the insurrection!" "His crew took part," John Slade said finally. l 'No doubt of it." Sugar Logan was a tall, suave man, polished of dress and manner, who brought to La Paz an air of .big business. Logan had strong beliefs, even though he made no habit of forcing them upon others.

We made it IjjieUy plain that school busses hauling adults into town would be met by police. I note that the Public Service Commission under date of December 16 issued the following instructions to state enforcement officers: "We are instructing our enforcement officers to apprehend any school * bus operating outside of its regular assigned run and to require ^the owner, or driver, to post *a substantial bond for appearance in court. It will be appreciated it you will pass this information on to the various school districts or contact the school bus operators in an, effort to save them any embarrassment or delay." By WILBUR LANDREV PA'RIS (UP) — Premier Pierre Mendes-France won a crucial vote of confidence from the French na tional assembly today anc" pet his course on the high road to ratifi c&tion of West European Union. Mendes-France had sU.ked his own destiny and. indirectly,, that of the whole of Western Europe on the outcome of the confidence test. It came on approval of his new budget for Indochina. He had suf- fcrel a stunning upset on the same issue Friday night in the midst of vital NATO AND Big Three conferences. The hard-hitting, milk-drinking premier squeaked through that crisis after p.n all-night battle in which he won by two votes a decision to study the budget again. Today he rammed it through opening the way for immediate debate on what will be , France's — The nn- t'on's big tax-exempt foundations What this means is, unlicensed [most important decision since the contract school bus operators who I end of World War II. try to break into the For Hire business are getting themselves involved in the whole law-enforce- n'ent machinery of the PSC — and this is a pretty big and terrifying business. The reluctant assembly which last Aug. 30 killed the. European Defense Community plan, is expected tc approve by a narrow margin the new plan hammered !cut at London and Paris to rearm the week-end from F. V. Haynie. In charge of the. Texarkana enforcement office, covering 17 Arkansas counties for the Transport Division of the PSC. Mr. Haynie showed that his office has turned over to Hope Municipal Court transport,aw violations which resulted in a "Jtal of $20.000 in fines this year. In a 15-month period for all Arkansas there have been 1,060 convictions and a total of $75,645 in fines, with additional costs of $19.422.

Britain already has ratified the agreement to .put 500,000 West Germans into uniform under NATO, but France remains the key. Failure of the French to ratify the London and Paris'-agreements viitually would end hopes for a unified West Germany. But today's vote was believed to pave the v/ay for 'victory on that issue also, despite frantic Russian efforts to prevent it; The reluctant assembly accepted an Indochina budget of $223,- Most of this, of course, has been levied against big-time highway haulers — but school bus operators are going to find themselves in the middle of it if they persist in try- jng to compete with regularly- wjheduled bus lines. " ^In the first place, the daily bus schedule is the only means some people have of getting into Hope or Nashville. It's-more important to us that -this schedule be maintained than that some individuals make a little money for themselves on Saturday. . In .the second place, the regularly-licensed and authorized bus line affords complete protection to its passengers. The bus company •jjirries insurance, and medical bills and compensation of passengers are fully covered in the event of accident. The interests of the community and its people outweigh any advantage to some individual trying to pick up a little loose change.
