Growing Unrest Leads to Arrest of Leader PESHAWAR, Indla.-(/P)-Growing unrest and lawlessness in the northwest frontier province led to the arrest Friday of Abdul Ghaffur Khan, chief of the "red shirt" movement and the promulgation of three new ordinances designed to enable authorities to deal summarily with the situation. With Abdul Ghaffur Kahn. nicknamed "The Frontier Gandhi," were taken his brother Dr. Kahn Saheb, Khan Saheb's son, Saad Ullah Khan and 'Quazi Ata Ullah, an attorney from Mardan, as well ns a dozen other minor personalities. Abdul Ghaffur Khan was ordered 1 expelled from the province. The three new ordinances give northwest frontier province authorities wide powers to act for the maintenance of peace and security. They will be empowered to arrest, detain and control suspected persons, to take or limit access to certain buildings and possession of buildings, to prohibit to regulate traffic.

Three Kinds of Love (Continued from Page Three' ttT'M more interested," Ann said, "in what Lindbergh thinks about you." "He Hkes my looks." Cecily was earnest again. "Tbat is—he always says 'lovely.' That la lesa than beautiful, I know. And, of course, I'm not beautiful. But 1 think It is better than 'pretty. 1 WH^f do you think?" "I think," Ann answered, as she walked to the door, "tbat be is In love with you. Isn't tbat what I'm supposed to think, Cissy?" "Anp, I don't know. Truly, I can't tell. He says something, and were gone last evenng for dinner— but that didn't matter. After dinner, though, Ermintrude came over, and for some reason that seemed to get both Grand and Rosalie started on that same old stuff about our never having friends here—music and merriment and laughter in our home, you know. They just kept at it, and went from bad to worse, and then Rosalie had to remember your birthday, a week from tomorrow, and they are Insisting upon giving you a birthday party. I couldn't stop it nor do a thing about it. Unless you can stop it, I'm afraid they'll make me carry it through. I thought you might say—" "A party? For me?" questioned Cecily. "Isn't It dreadful! I brought out every objection I decently could wlthput hurting their feelings, but—" "But," Cecily interposed, "I'd love it, Ann. I was thinking only last evening that it might seem odd to Barry that we haven't people to play with—a group, you know." "We haven't, though," Anu said. "Not any more. There'd be no one to invite." "Pooh! We can think of plenty of people if we count them up. Well, I don't know. I'm choking to find out. He likes me lot, {'m sure of that. BuVhe's sort of—shy of love, or queer about it, I think." "Moat men are," said Ann, "No, 4 don't mean tbat way. Barry's different. He is entirely different from any otber man I've '; ever known. He—" Aon interrupted. "I must run on down and start breakfast. But 1 »-nt to tell you something while i have a chance without Mary. Frances around. If you haven't made a. dinner engagement wftb Barry for this evening, perhaps you'd better not See him after dinner, if you like, but come home for dinner. Grand—" "But I have made one! And I'm going to I i«p It. Dear heavens, has Grand found bi* leading strings again? Will bo take it out on you, angel, if I go?" "No—I don't care if he does. TbJs to it: Grand did fu*i because you "Put on a smock, dear. That apron won't cover your sleeves." "And I could make the cakes on Friday evenl.ng, after dinner. We'd have to have two, I suppose—a devil cake and tbat cbeap, easy sponge. That would leave Saturday afternoon free to get the house ready. We'll air the library and have It mostly in. there. They wouldn't need to go upstairs—nor all over the house. We'd steer them from 1 one oasis to another. And we wouldn't call it a party, of course. We'd just say that some friends were coming in for the evening. What's the matter, angel?" "I ca.n not get this lid off." "Here. I'll pull the rubber out with the icepick. That's the best way to open the old things. I thought we'd ask Marta and Herbert. I'd like to have Gretchen, and I should—I'm In debt to her— and she'd have some man to bring. But she would smoke. She says right out that she won't go places There's Barry, and you and Phil, said and Marta and Herbert. 1 Barry, didn't I? Let's see—" "Well, we can talk it over later," Ann said, and opened the door. "Yes," Cecily agreed. "It will be fun!" Ann closed the door and went down the hall toward the back stairway. "The cat's taken poison, and the baby's gone insane!" she muttered. It was her profoundest oath, significant of her furthest desperation. • * * 46JT needn't," were Cecily's first •*• words when she came, wearing ber best brown dress with its wide white collar and cuffs, into the kitchen 20 minutes later, "be such a lot of work—:he party, I mean, need it, Ann, nor so very expensive?" Ann, trying to unscrew the lid from a jar of stewed plums, glanced from it to Cecily. "No, dear," she answered. "Of course not,* and despised herself. She bad planned to restore Cecily's sanity, iu part, at least, at any cost. But wiping tbat expression of wistful, shining bliss from Cissy's face would be, it seemed to Ann, as cruel as rubbing damp sponge across a picture drawn by a child on a slate and presented for admiration. "We could have ice cream and fce aod coffee, tbat would be enough. We wouldn't positively have to order brick ice cream—" where she can't, and I Grand would lose control." suppose 44T\/rY word, yes! We wouldn't • L ' J - dare risk it." "I know," Cecily sighed. "There —that's the way to get them off, Ann; pull the rubber out first. I'll dish them. No, I can't have Gretchen, I suppose. But i£ I don't ask her I can't ask Jean nor Dorothy. I thought you could ask Nella and her husband." "They wouldn't come. Look at the toast in the oven, will you, Cissy? They haven't stepped outside the bouse in the evening since the baby was born. Nella won't trust him with strangers. I dou't blame her a bit. He's a darling. I wish Peun Johns and her husband hadn't moved to Seattle to live— but they have. Could you ask the Mattason twins?" "I could," Cecily's laugh was not wholly successful, "and I could send a cable over to the Prince of Walts." "I dou't think the Mattasou twins are so much." "Neither do I; but they think so. Anyway, Grand wouldn't let them In if they did come. Don't you remember the tima be and Rosalie went with tha Caraicbaels to the Multnomah for dinner, and be came borne ami all but got out the grindstone aud the knife to bare them ready in case we should ever act like that? No. Tue twins, are out." "Wear 1 said Ann, but she did not say, "I told you so," as ahe picked up the loaded tray to carry it through the butler's pantry into the dining room. Grand and Rosalie always hoped aud trusted tbat they bad not, as yet, sunk to tbe level of 4 society where breakfasting In tae kitchen was condoned. m , » pOOR Cissy, when Ann returned •*• to the kitchen, was standing precisely where she had been stand- Ing when Ann had left the kitchen. The smell of burned toast was bitter in the room, and blue spirals of smoke were writhing out from the oven door. "I could wear my pink," Cecily mused dreamily, "and you could wear your yellow, and— Oh, angel! I am sorry. I forgot all about the toast. Here, let me do It. I'm so absent-minded lately. Please, I'll attend to it. Can't I scrape it?" Mary-Frances, pink cheeked and sweet as a cherub on a candy box lid, came into the kitchen and said, "Whew! What's burning? Rosalie would like her breakfast on a tray this morning, If it isn't too much trouble. She's feeling a little weak. She'd prefer orange juice to cooked fruit, if it is convenient. She wants It strained. Grand needs a cup ot hot water right away. I'll take it up. -He fears a slight digestivo disturbance. He has hiccups. And, oh, yes, Ann, I almost forgot. Phil wants you on the telephone. He's waiting." "Phil?" Ann questioned Incredulously, and sped to the dining room, and to the telephone, and quavered, "Hello." "Ann, dear! Did I startle you?" Ann released the long breath sho had been holding. "Phil, are you all right? I—I thought something must have happened—it's so early." "Sorry! Surely I'm all right. 1 only wanted to come over in the car and take you to the office this morning." "Phil," Ann said, and succeeded at last in steadying her voice, "tell me now. What is it? What is the trouble?" "Not a thing oil earth," he assured her, "except that I haven't seen you since day before yesterday, and that it is a glorious morning, and I want to see you. Can't a man tuko u notion to see bis girl In the morning without causing a panic?" "Well—but—" she said. It was too amazing. It was like old times, away long ago at the beginning ot things. "Well, but," he mocked. "Have you a date with another man to ride to your office this morning?" "Phil, dear," she protested, and laughed and almost sang. "i'H iove it, of course. How good of you to tbink of Jt. How good—" "Oh-oh!" When she went into the kitchen again there was something 'of Cecily's dreamy radiance iu her.own heart-shaped: face. "I could wear my yellOw." she said. "And you coyld w^ar your pink." \ ,:. < (To Be Continued) Three Lose Lives as Car Gives Out of Gas Biting the Hand PORTLAND, Ore. — Fred Hanson was begging for a place to spend the night. A local hotel keeper gave him a nice room with a comfortable bed. The next morning Fred had left, and 1 so had the bedspread. Police checked up and found it in a pawnshop, where it had been pawned for ten cents. They looked up Fred and he admitted the theft. He was fined $25 for his ingratitude. Figs By Plane SAN FRANCISCO.-New York is being supplied with fresh figs through the medium of the airplane. Growers in California are pooling their product to be shipped to New York and, as they are valued higher when received fresh, an airplane is being employed to ship them across the country in much faster time than rail shipments would take. The most important mineral substances required in food are the salts of iron, iodine, phosphorus,' calcium (lime), maganese, potash and soda, Date for Retention of Ducks Comes on Friday LITTLE ROCK.—(XP)—Friday is the last day wild clucks may be retained in the possession of hunters or other individuals, Guy Amslcr, secretary of the Arkansas game and fish commission, said Thursday. The shortened hunting season ended December 15 and the state law provides that ducks may not be retained longer than 10 days nfter the close of the shooting season. Amslcr said. Heretofore the season has continued through January and the possession period' has ended February 10. Amslcr. said .he had received several inquiries as to whether the shortening of .the hunting season by the federal government changed the period for possession of ducks. He said the commission has held that the provision allowing possession 10 days after the cloe of the season applies to any season fixed' by federal regulations and not to ta fixed date. JpenoUy-for violation of this provision is a fine of from $10 to $200. After Forty Years KNOXVILLE, Tenn.—For the first time in 40 years the path of two boyhood chums crossed here.

What a Sweet Tooth! ACTON, Ind.—George Phenster, local druggist, in fighting for the $9,000 estate left by his mother, presented a rather odd argument in court. He claimed he should have the entire $9,000 because his mother owed him $25,000. He explained that -this sum was the total of.bills for candy, peanuts and 1 ice cream he had provided for her during the last 20 years. Among the Moors, if a wife does not give birth to a son after being marrie da few years, she may be divorced with the consent of the tribe and can marry again. Seven Are Gone, Three Are Left Three survivors of the ice tragedy which cost seven lives near Musgegon, Mich., are shown here. Little Gloria Oman, 3, was left an orphan, and Mrs. Martha Errgang lost a son, a daughter, a son-in-law and' four grandchildren in the brief minutes after little Orville Orman's sled broke through the ice. The dob, after an heroic but futile effort to save the seven who were floundering in the lake, dashed home and attracted Mrs. Errgang to the scene by pulling her skirts.

Dale was walking near her homo when she was held up by a youthful robber. He reached into her pocket and took 95 cents. "That's all the money I have for the week," Mrs. Dale told nim. Without a word the robber replaced the money and walked away. When .frightened, rabbits stamp several times on the ground with their hind feet, making a sound which can be heard a long way off. This is a danger signal to fellow rabbits who scamper off to safety.
