Mrs. O. L. Chuhtley of Gilllatn. Ark., if the guest of her sister, Mrs. J. W. Perkins and'Mr. Perkins. The holiday season of Thanksgiving and Christmas affords dramatic opportunity to lay n lasting foundation of plant appreciation in one's mind. Few ( of us renll7e that throuch Nature's own prehistoric fossil records in stone scientist;; have proven that plants existed upon ihi.s earth long bofoiv nnimal.s and man. And if the plants had last Iheir slrugcle for life, no one lias yet discovered how the animals aiul men could have existed. Nert to the holly and mistletoe, the Jiino fumily plays a great part in our rhaiiksfiivinK and Christina.'; decora- lions, for without such decorations, Christmas would be very drab indeed. 13y the pine family we mean such evergreens us spruce, hemlocks, firs, oedais, junipers and larches, the first green sight to meet the .sea-weary eyes of our Pilgrim forefathers was that of the iircat pine foiesl.s. So grateful were they for its protection, its food ami in fuel that ihey placed a picture of a pine tree upon their first money, calling it die pine tree .shilling. In Home, the pine was used for temple warns, the beginninfi of one of the Kreatesl industrial promotions of the world, the manufacture of lumber for the construction of house, and needed timbers for numerous other necessities for the comfort and advancement of lie. This evergreen tree has always been of indispensable service to man and annual, not only furnishing wood for ship, temple and home construe- ti«n. but it has been a source of healing re.sms and essential turpentines And n* fa,- back as yulctido legends Circle No. 3 W.

In its military aspects, there arises the possibility of utilizing readily con- certible sections of existing paved highways. Use of the tricycle gear likely would necessitate important, changes in plane design, officers said. "It, will have to be pulled up and stowed away while the plane is in flight," they agreed.'. Through resultant new problems of load distribution and change in the (June's relative position to lire ground, it was Major Greene's belief -that widespread adoption of the new-type undercarriage might make desirable a ' rt-turn to "high wing" monoplane construction.

Induce him, as tactfully as- yo uciin, to come in near the hour his parents suggest. Don't use the family car—unless the older people insist.

CHAPTER XVIII ' . tJOBERT BARRY was a trained scientist, specialising in the antiquities of man, fascinated always by their history, their manners, customs, languages. Because North American man seems lltef- ally to have been cradled jn our Southwest, Bob Barry had centered his studies there. He knew many things from books and professors, many more from work in the field. And— common sense taught him not a few. "Remember the feller starving to death ift Paris, 'Lissa?" "What are you talking about?" she laughed at him. They bad maneuvered to gel more food, and « couple of hours for rest and sleep. "Tno American who saved his life with a pencil," Bob resumed. "He was trying to make the cafe waiter understand him. Finally in desperation he sketched a picture of a cow, and so had a sizzling T-bone steak for dinner." She laughed again. "Will you order T-bones now?" she suggested. "And you might draw a chicken and a bakery and a dish of peas, if your art is dependable." He grinned, but he was serious loo. He had some ideas. They had been resting inside a windowless worn, on floor beds made of grass and woven fiber blankets. Brown folk peered in the lone door from time to time. Evidently these watchful ones • saw when they awoke, for a crowd greeted them outside again. For two hours and more, then, Bob Barry, "convs^sed" with the man who had 'accepted the watch. He was what he appeared to be — *he leader, «r chieftain. He wore more clothes than the others, but clothing in general evidently was not a bother to these folk; his pieces were ornamental, marks of distinction and rank. is universal among wilderness peopJe. It is not always the same In every nation, but there is invariably a similarity. Close observers can "interpret" it readily, for after all. it is communication reduced to the simplest of motions, about the things common to all. Bob could understand more of it than he could "speak," which is usual with any foreign language. B\it he labored at it, not unpleasantly, for most of the afternoon, "Listen 'Lissa, we've stumbled onto something biggw and stranger than we could have hoped lor in our wildest dreams." Bob was beaming, when he joined Mary Melissa again. She had waited near the chieftain's house. "Could you understand him, Bob? Did you learn much?" "Plenty! It wasn't all easy, for him or me either,'but we had a great talk. These people are not Indians. I'm convinced of' that. I meaft, not.'any'tribes we know i pi 1 have reeoinl of. They may be •kin to the Hopis .and Zunis and | Acomas, .but they're a tribe of their own, right oftough. "VTiy 'Lissa honey, know what that old chief to'ld me? This is the answer to our main question. This tribe is the remnant of the cliff dwellers!" ' "Really, Bob?" "Yessirl Centuries ago, evidently, the ancestors of these villagers built Defiance Castle, and j lived up there for protection. They farmed this valley, which has some springs in it; and the river courses on the other side of the cliff near our camp, remember? But enemies came raiding. They killed most of the other cliff .dwellers, or took off the girls to be slaves. Probably the' enemies were Yaquis, or Apar^js. "This castle, though, was hardest to attack, because it was so high and hard to get at." "Then what happened, Bob?" The girl was intensely interested. came in from many miles away. When they thought all the cliff people had been killed or fled, they ceased coming." "But Bob, why haven't white people found it? You say it's new to science, and these people are living as they did 600 years ago." "Look around us, 'Lissa. Sea the great cliffs—there? And there? And on all sides? This really is a wide box canyon, a shut-in val» ley," It was all sort of fantastic, but it made sense. The Lost People- Bob formally named them that— were indeed a turn-back of the human calendar. Their kingdom •Would be a microscopic point -on the vast map of the United States or of Mexico. And by a freak of geography and circumstance, they had remained completely isolated from all the'rest of the world,-unknown to it, and il unknown to them. Probably it coulc' have happened nowhere else in North America save in this arid, almost unknown southwest. Riftlto-Sacngcr Youth, romance, cheering stands, and u new and daring approach to the subject of professionalism in college football are all offered in "Saturday's Heroes," the big bargain night (see ad page 3) picture about the • great autumn pastime. In a story alive with action and thrills, "Saturday's Heroes" delves deeply into the whys and wherefores of the controversial subject of pro- lussionalism in intercollegiate sport and explains where the money goes when the public pays exhorbitont prices for seats to the big game. Van Heflin and Marian Marsh are cast in the leading roles of the film, and a large number of supporting players include Richard Lane, Alan Bruce Willie Best, Frank M. Thomas.

Ark, ]3°B'S hunch was right. The brown chief could understand much of the sign language which people, I mean their ancestors, made a smart m,ove. They destroyed their front ladders, such as we bu'ilt, abandoned their cliff home, and came into this hidden valley to live. The enemies didn't know about this Valley, and there was enpugh rich soil here to support the few surviving cliff people. See?" 'JSfes, but wouldn't the raiders find (hie valley in time?" "No, they didn't. The raiders didn't live in this area. They Severe_Fr_eeze Is I Federaflnvasion T least that's the host I cart do at interpreting the story old what'shisname told me," Bob concluded, to Melissa, "except for one rather important thing. In fact, I. think it's extremely impoitanl to you and me, Melissa." "What is it, Bob? What did he say about us?" "Why these Lost People think we're messengers from their god, the Sun. We're pretty important, demi-gods or something. We brought them a watch, yellow and shiny, a piece of the sun, as you observed. Now they beg us not to destroy them, not to reveal them to their ancient enemies outside. See?" "Oh! I can't imagine all this. I just can't, Bob. It wouldn't be possible, if it weren't true!" "Check, I agree. But here we are. Facts are facts. They never saw white people before, especially a beautiful white girl. You impress them tremendusly, sweetheart. I mean, you're a greater sun god than I, because you're fairer, daintier, I imagine. They're roing to stage a big party a powwow and dance and all that, for our benefit. . . Scared?" Mary Melissa was so frightened at all this that she trembled a bit. But she dimpled at Bob Barry. "Never, with you here, dear?" ihe declared.
