The Local Merchant T(ic' local !'P(«il merchant is mi insli- tutioji i|( himself.

Ho pays (axes for the support of schools, (ire and police protection and maintenance of peace, as well as contributions made to churches and public am) private charities. He is the cornerstone of the city's business life. Tfie Trouble Wnli Radical* One of llm reasons why America has not flocked lo radical ilocli'inus wilh any more enthusiasm is that your av- crauc tloctiinaire radical is apt lo hu a glum fellow, lie is so concerned with life's injustices and grim lerrors thai he refuses to laugh at its absvirdilies. True to form is the action of the Mexican Confederation of Labor in banning '"Ninolclikn," thai very gay spoof on Russian Communist life. The governmenl censors okayed il, Inil the CROM, which controls movie .workers, blocked it. Of course that is indefensible censorship by a group—Ihe only kind worse than official uovornineul censorship. But more than .lhal—it reveals the grim and dour spirit Dial lies behind so many of the more radical groups, a ''spirit lhal repels those who might otherwise be more sympathetic. Tronic From Norway The easy capture of Narvik |iy I lie invading Gci-nians i.s now believed due to [lit- fact that the Norwegian command there had been entrusted to a known Nazi sympathizer. lie betrayed his trust.

J)UFFY KELSO was almost apo plcclic. "You've changer] youi mind?" he howled. "You're loain it, you mean! What's the matter kid—you crazy or something?" Things were happening almusl too fast for Val Douglas lo follow. "I know exactly what I'm doing," Eddie replied calmly. "Don' you ECC il would be bad psychology for us to rush bade righl now? Briggs and the whole fight mob would think we're Belling panicky —that we're a little worried about taking him. "They linew we intended (o come back Ihe same way we came up. It'll look awful funny lo change our plans just because we go against ,-. iibstilule." "Look, Eddie," Duffy pleaded. "J nei'cr went to college and I ain't much at (his psychology business. Let me handle this from now on in, Eddie. Ain'l we done swell so far? Ain't 1 been like a father to you?" Eddie smiled. "Sure, DulTy. Sure. But I know f'm right. Don't worry about anything-. Not even Corky Briggs." "He's got Ihe right slant, Duffy," Val put in. "Eddie's indifference will make up for those 10 pounds he'll be giving away." Duffy surrendered. "Guess thai settles it. Every time lhal dame puts the clincher on an idea it takes two off my life." "j^OOKS like a nice little town," Eddie observed when they came up on deck after mess. Darkness had just fallen and the lights of the city winked cheerfully. "Well," he inquired. "What are we going to do?" "What do you mean?" Val asked, somewhat puzzled. He nodded toward shore. "Might as well give old terra firma a whirl again. How about a walk around town?" "Sure," she accepted with alac- rily. She didn'l mention that she'd previously accepted Captain Hansen's invitation lo do the same thing. Oh, well, Slevic wouldn't mind. Fifteen minutes Inter Ihey were swinging off down (lie dock. 'We're not unloading anything until tomorrow morning, yon know," Vnl said. "Sieve wants everything handled In daylight especially lhal mining machinery." "Still worried, eh?" "Sieve has lo be. He's doubling Ihe watch tonight." "What does he expect—someone to walk off with the ship?" "From what 1 know of the situation, it isn't so futmy." One ot Ihc first things she wanted to do was get some newspapers. She wound up with several and standing under a streel light, she turned hastily to the sports pages. "Here it is," she chortled. "And look at it splashed all over the page, would you?" It was her story on the rescue of the previous night. "Come lo think of it," she mill- leied, is page one sluff il unylliing ever was.' She looked up and saw the sloney, immobile expression on Lddic's face. Val tossed the papers into a convenient refuse can without a further word. They walked on silently for another block. She could just about read his mind, lie probably preferred lo force! the whole thing. * * * "priED?" he asked about an hour laler. "No, bul I've walked up my ippotite again. Got the price 'of i sandwich on yon?" "Just about," he grinned. "Belter not order lettuce " with it, Ihough." They strolled into a little tavern on Victoria slrcel and sal down at i booth. "Toasted cheese and coffee," she said lo the waiter, "Same," Eddie told him. They were only half through vhen a man entered and walked luiekly to a booth a little in back of Ihem. There was something in-live about him that drew Val's attention immediately. "The Belle's in," the man said n a low voice—bill not too softly or Val lo catch it. She clutched Sddie's arm and motioned for ilcnce.' There were two ithcr booth. Thej „„„ njickly wilh the man w,ho brought he news. ; Val stood up. "Did-you hear vhat he said?" she said excitedly. What business il of his? Who ire Ihey, I wonder?" She grabbed Eddie by Ihe arm again. "Come on, we re going fo follow them." "You're bally," | le (ol( , ,, cl .

' lie sprang :itier her, pa'id |ii c check and followed her oul. "All righl, bloodhound, which way did Ihey go and what do you expect to find otil?" She nodded across the slroof "There they go. I Ijavcn't even got a good hunch—yel. But where Hie Iforlhem Belle is concerned so urn I." ' He saw her mouth set in a firm straight line and he knew there was no further use arguing wilh her. Val Douglas had her mind made up and he knew her well enough by now lo know what that meant. •"THEY followed the trio for two blocks. One of the men went into a drug store while the others wailed outside, from across the street Val and Eddie could see the man making a telephone call. He was out again in a minute and all three wailed until a fourth man joined them. "Reinforcement's," Va! muttered. "Naw," Eddie replied. "Just a fourth for bridge." The four men walked rapidly toward the waterfront. Val and Eddie trailed. As they reached the docks, Val looked at her watch. II was almost 10. "So far they're peaceful citizens, just like you and me," Eddie mur- nu(red. Bul even Eddie had his doubts couple of minutes later when one of the men disappeared inside ;i warehouse and returned with something that looked very much like n sledge-hammer. "Funny time to be oul cracking ck," said Eddie. ""ttock, nothing," Val said excitedly. "I gel it now. Those men' arc headed for the Northern Belle. Maybe my imagination is running away wilh me, but J'll bet they're going to try to muscle their way on board and sabotage that mining machinery before we get a chance to' unload tomorrow. Let's j;o, Eddie. We've got lo warn Caplaiu Steve." But a voice, chilling and menacing behind them, stopped them bs- forc they took a step. "You ain't goin' nowhere for a while—and don'l make a sound!" The man behind the voice advanced toward them. The authority in his voice was backed up with a snub-nosed automatic.

Of first importance is Ihc selection ef a jccnniicfcnl, con- p li y - 'sifiau known to ibc skilled in the practice of obstetrics.

It is importiim lor hoc to return lo the elector ul regular intervals, even lluuieli she may feel perfectly well. On each visit he wil carefully check (he blood pressure and test the mine, us well as inquire ahmit any unpleasant, .signs or symptoms, as the following: Severe vomiting and nausea.

Any one of these in itsejl may not prove serious, but it may indicate to the physician an underlying condition which if taken in time may avoid disaster later on. U is important to have a planned delivery whether il takes plate in the home or in the hospital. In Ecinc places visiting or public hcjlth nurses arc available to help the prospective mothers. Where maternity hospitals and clinics arc part of the commimlly resources, mothers may receive needed help from these. If a well-equipped hospital with separate aiateniily service is available with consultation services on call, il is more convenient and on Ihc whole safer lo have Ihc mother in Hie hospital, especially lor the lii si baby. However, it mus.t be 1111- (lerslnacl that with skilled medical and nursing care, home deliveries can be carried out, with salcly and cojnfoil. Hy j. R.
