In August Thorp will go with NEC as the New Deal's Number One Man on prices, price-fixing problems, and consumer protection. Magic Traffic Light There's a remarkable gadget at Pierce Mill in Rock Creek Park, where a boulevard crosses the bridle path over which generals, debutantes, Mrs. Roosevelt and Anna Dali go gallop- At dusk he came in "Where were you, Tom? I've been waiting supper for an hour." "I went for an airplane ride with Kroger. He's been promising me a run for a long time. Any Sunday after four o'clock." "You don't mean htat you went and left Jack at home.' "Sure. I told him to come and he didn't believe me." Jack looked as though the world had come to an end. Cruel Treatment "I'm just as glad," sighed his mother. "Only Kroger is a good pilot and I think it's perfectly safe. But, Tom, the boy doesn't know when to believe you and when not to. You treat him as though he hadn't any mind, or any right to decent answers.' 'I knew you'd put the blame on me," said Thomas, the bully. "Well' it's no wonder Jack has no use for me when you're always taking his part. Saying which, he virtutuosly attacked his cold cuts. But Jack couldn't eat a bite. This story is not exaggerated, but j based on truth. There is just such a father here and there with a streak of cruelty in him. He gets a kick in putting the children on the defensive and in disappointing them. Fortunately his number is limited. ter still, use u clean cotton pad a day.

But Jane would not listen. A cable had come from Howard and been sent on from Marburg. He and Professor Ellert had landed safely after a smooth crossing. They were going to Berlin first and then start their expedition. There was a mention o£ unsettled conditions which might change their plans. Amy bad neglected the newspapers but now she looked at thorn for an explanation. To her amazement nnd dismay they were full of war rumors, with Germany truculent and menacing. Jane laughed at her fears. "My dear," she said, "even If tlioy do have a war it won't bother the Auiencans all thpy'll who are over there, have to do Is turn aro".na and come home. I don't believe they'll have a war. it's just that craxy old Kaisor waving himself around and showing off." "I know, Jane, but Professor Ellert is old and feeble, it'll upset him dreadfully." She was really thinking of Howard and the trouble It would be for him to take care of the trail, exacting old man, but neither she nor Jane had the least idea of what difficulties would and did liaiipcn to Americans who wore so unlucky as to he traveling In the embroiled countries at tlia beginning of hostilities. Amy merely Imagined that Howard and Professor fcl 1 1 e r I might have to come (jack witliuiu ternlty can be nothing but a physical thing.

You thought you'd mako a grand free noble gesture, and you haven't the nerve to see it through. You ought to be ashamed to say you'll hate this child. You can't hato it. It's part of your body and your soul. You might as well say you hate yourself." "I might say that, too." "Well, you wouldn't mean It, You think very well of yourself. You always have. But you'd really hate yourself, loathe yourself, If you abandoned this child to anybody who's willing to take it. You'll never know what becomes of it." "I don't want to know." "Why, you wouldn't do that to a puppy or a kitten! You'd not give one of them away without being sure it had a good home aud wouldn't be abused or ill- treated. Oh, Jane, It would be um'orgiveablc." "It's no use. I'm going to do it. You simply don't understand." They went over it again and again. But Jane continued to search after channels of adoption which would givo the protection of secrecy to the mother in spite o£ all Amy could say, aud at last refused to answer, put her hands over her ears and kept them there whenever Amy protested. "Leave me alone, can't you? I feel so wretched already," she said. At last Amy felt it was better to say nothing more, because she saw how ill Jane was aud how near her time, but she thought, "As soon as thr; child Is born she'll feel differently. She's bound accomplishing and it would their be u pilgrimage, pity. That prospect did not disturb her nearly so much as Jane's unchangiug resolve to give her child for adoption as soon as it should he born. No matter what she said, she could not move Jane out- inch. They argued about it until both, were sharp and exhausted. "You're not logical," cried Jane. "You don't believe a child is better off with people who'll love it than with someone who never will be able to staud looking ut It! Why, on that -score uloue I'm doing the right thing. You want to sentimentalize over it.

Aud Knglaud's going in!" Amy looked at the headlines and li'id the paper aside. "I'm Koina to telephone home," she said. She looked round at Jane and saw litr facu drawn into a strange awed grimace. "Send for the doctor," she whispered, "und the nurse." Klie dropped over on tlie sofii, limp, moaning.

Tue child waa long !n coming, not eager, Amy thought, to enter a world where it waa unwanted. Jane did not suffer very much. "She's perfectly normal. Everything's nil right," Mias McNeal kept saying, "but it's so inconvenient here. If we were only in a hospital now!" Early in an August morning the hour came and before dawn Jane's child waa born, a girl, small, but perfect and strong. When she had been bathed and rubbed with oil and' her first few garments put on her, Miss McNeal handed her over to Amy. "Lay her to sleep somewhere safe,'' she directed, "since there's no crib."• • • A MY sat down with the child In •'*• her arms and looked at it. She had never seen so .young a baby before and this queer little dark-eyed wrinkled creature seemed to her rather a blind little mole or mouse than a human child, a little ugly fumbling animal, utterly helpless, unwelcomed, to be flung into any possible fate —the .callous cruelty o£ it struck Amy afresh. "But it's I m p o a s i h 1 e!" sbe thought. "Jane can't do it. It sbe does I'll Uate her forover. But she can't, no one could. This little, little baby!" Presently Doctor Lacey camo out ot Jane's room. "It's an odd thing," he told Amy, "but I happened to hear a day or so ago of some people who want to adopt a girl baby with good blood, you know—I'll get in touch with them and find out what can be arranged. They stipulated just what Miss Terry wants in one way—I mean, they don't want to know the real mother's name and they don't want her to know theirs—to prevent the mother claiming the cnild later on, you understand." "But Jane's hardly Been her baby, Doctor," stammered Amy. "I'm hoping when she does, she won't let it go." Doctor Lacey shrugged. "Sb,» told me' to go ahead, to hurry." Amy held the child c 1 o • e r, walked past the doctor and into the bedroom where Jane, In a bleak and drugglsb. aura, lay exhausted. Amy spoke clearly and very gravely: "Are you still bound to give this child away, Jane, and let her belong entirely to someone else aud never claim her back?" The spark in Jane's eyes became almost gay. "You sound like the Bible," sUe murmured, "Yes, of course I'm going to give ta» child away. And such luck! Doctor Lacey knows of somebody."

MAULDIN FRED A. LUCK French Scoff Germany's Gesture Paris Sees Nazi Attempt to Break Up English Peace Pact PARIS, France—(#>)—French officialdom Monday considered that the "menace" presented by Germany was unabated by the peace gesture contained in the speech of Rudolph HC.S.S. aide to Chancellor Adolf Hitler. The French called "superfluous" the warning against an invasion of Germany, and regarded Hess' speech as an attempt to discourage French efforts to line up Great Britain uncl the rest o fEurope in "defensive re-ap- prochments." Hess' Speech KOENIGSBURG. Germany.- (/P, Rudolph Hess, cabinet minister known us Chancellor Hitjer's "second self," in an amazing address Sunday pleaded for an understanding with France, sounded a warning against impending war and defiod any nation lu invade Germany. The speech was delivered before Nazi leaders of Prussia and wus broadcast throughout the nation. Translations were broadcast throughout the world, showing the emphasis on this pronouncement, which followed by a week the bloody "pudge" of the Nazi party. The speech was amazing not only because of its appeal to France, but also because of an implied warning that war threatens Europe and the defiance to invaders. The appeal to France was underscored by Hoss as he suddenly switched from German to French and speaking of the miseries of war, shouted: "Malheur pour nous, malheur pour vous, et malheur pour tout, pour le monde." (Unhappiness for us. unhappiness for you, unhoppincss for all, for the world.) "I turn to comrades of tho front, both here and on the other side of the trencher," sidd Hess. "Be honest, didn't we experience horror at the thought of death, "When hand grenades were hurled at us, when poisonous ga sthrentenod to choke us, despite our gas masks. when we heard the cries of anguish from the dying, when horror of every Stratosphere Hop to Be Made Soon South Dakota Adventurers Waiting Only on the Weather RAPID CITY, S. 0. -(/TV- .Tub!ant confidence in the outcome of their stratosphere venture, permeated the cnmp of tlie xpedition Sunday.
