Her mother had gone off to a missionary meeting at the church and slie had become so bored with her own company that she could stand it no longer. ..ii? 1 ! 1 , 1 S. reeted her effusively. Well, this is an honor. Take the chair by the fire." He puttered about making her comfortable, hanging up her coat {J n Q__hat. Diana laughed.

She glanced about at the orderly shelves. There was a little of everything in Bill's store. A general" store, it was called. Canned goods, produce, hams, dry goods, thread, fishing tackle, overalls—the people of the countryside could buy almost anything they needed here. Bill was an excellent storekeeper — genial friendly, talkative. They all liked him. He was one of them. And Diana knew that the business was slowly but surely making him wealthy. As she sat by the fire, she watched the customers come and go. She knew most of them and they all called greetings to her. They were interested to know why she was home, when she was going back. "It's not curiosity," Diana thought, "just friendly interest." During the lulls in business, Bill came and sat beside her and talked. He spoke interestingly and well. You'd think he'd had a Jot more than a high school education. That was because he read so much and kept abreast of the times. They laughed about things that happened when they were in school. Ite told her abbiit some of the boys and girls that she'd lost track of. He was in his element here In his own domain. Any constraint that had been present in his manner the night before had completely vanished. Here Bill Jackson was king. * * * JPINALLY he stood looking down at her, his eyes earnest and intent, his mouth a little grim at the corners. She saw a pulse beating nervously in his brown throat. "I don't suppose It's much use to say it again, Diana, but you know I love you." "Thank you, Bill. I cherish that. But you're right. It's no use. I'm sorry." She saw his shoulders droop [>nd was terribly sorry for him. 'Oh, Bill, why does it have to be like that between us? It's so pleasant just being friends with you—like this afternoon. Why don't you fall in love with someone who likes this sort of life and will make you a good, contented wife?" He said, his jaw tightening, You know anyone else after you would be like twilight after a lovely sunset." She was touched and the quick tears came. "That was a beautiful thing to say, Bill. But you've got to get over me. You can't go on like this always—hoping—because I'm afraid I'll never really love you like you want me to. You see, there's something —I can't tell you just yet." "You're in love with someone else?" "No—it's not that." "Then you can't stop me irom hoping." Later Joey Cowan, the boy who helped in the store, came in to relieve Bill and he walked home with Diana, stayed for supper. They played Chinese checkers with Mr. and Mrs. Tucker until late. Once more in her featherbed nest with only her nose exposed to the cold air, Diana drifted off to sleep thinking, "Tomorrow Stephen's coming." * * * CHE awoke nervous and excited, accomplished her packing before going down to breakfast. Her mother and father seemed excited, too. They did not entertain such a distinguished guest every day. John stayed at home from school with his father's consent. "You'll probably learn more listening to Stephen Curt," Mr. Tucker'said. And about 10:30 Stephen's big shining coupe swung'up the driveway. Diana welcomed him at the door of the dining-sitting room. Copyright, 1941. NBA Service Inc. He Was like someone from an- ot . 1 jer world, yet perfectly at home with her father and mother, talking interestedly with young John. Drifts of their conversation came to her as she helped her mother prepare luncheon, or "dinner," as the Tuckers still called it. A healthy, substantial meal, wen cooked and appetizing. Stephen Curt ate as if he enjoyed It thoroughly, won her mother's high regard by his compliments of her cooking. Yet there was nothing strained, 1 no appearance of striving for ad- ( justments to his surroundings in his manner. Easy, charming, distinguished. Diana glowed with pride in him and the thought that they were at least friends. "Liked each other on sight," Stephen had, said. She'd treasure that, no matter what their future relationship might become. After the meal her father said, Would you like to go out to the barn with me, Mr. Curt? I'd like for you to see the new calf." And Diana knew that they would dis-- cuss the marriage in her father's 1 stronghold. She watched them go and wondered what would be the result of the conference. Would she want to go through with the strange affair if her father still could not place the stamp of his approval upon it? And what of Stephen Curt? Would he want to call everything off if her father did not approve? Would his apparent respect for Mr. Tucker color his future actions? Diana felt like a culprit who must await the verdict of a returning jury. They stayed in the barn for some time and Diana began to grow nervous with the thought that they would not get back to town for the 6:30 broadcast if Stephen did not hurry. It was a good three hours' drive and already it was nearly 2 o'clock.' At last they came back in and both men were smiling. "If you're ready, Diana, we'd better start," Stephen said. "We'll be • listening to- your broadcast tonight," her father assured him. "" '' -~" TiiT^-- i i , ' I'-'T*" Noisy Way to Hide a Tank.

He is the first pretender for whom has been waived the old law forbidding pretenders to reside on French territory. He is allowed to stay more or less on nood behaviour. Yet the fact that he is allowed at all is a significant example of how the collapse of democratic government in France has boosted the stock of the royalist movement. The count came to Tangier the other day. We ordered brandies and settled ourselves in a corner of the hotel where we both were staying. Then he alked to me, earnestly and frankly, and answered a string of indiscreet questions. It was not an interview. Most of the things he told me were off the record. But I do not think I will be violating his confidence to say that he still expects to be king of France one day. He became chief of the House of * ranee upon the death of his father, the Duke de Guise, a little more thai 1 a year ago at nearby Larache, Span ish Morocco, Since he became chief, the Coun de Paris by force of the delicate sit ualion in which he found himself has done very little to promote hi cause. But his stock has gone up without any pushing. He made his last public pronounce ment upon the death of his father Announcing that he had become now the ^depository of the royal traditions, lie took a "solemn oath to continue to serve France with all my torces, and promised with the aid o providence to conduct "my country' m honor on the way of her destiny Smcc then, he has relied on £ ninthly letter he writes and sends out "imimeographed form to keep his name alive. The letter goes open through the mail with no objections irom either the French or occupying authorities. It consists of an innocent pep talk, much on the lines of Petain Propaganda, urging the people to work hard so that France may arise His sedate activities today are a far cry from the stirring times just after Munich when the count, then living m Belgium, staged a "one man invasion of France. Flying his own Plane to a secret rendezvous with reporters near Paris, he alit, read a warning on the lesson of Munich, and flew back to Brussels. Today the count and his followers proclaim their ardent loyalty to the retain government. They make no ef- wrt to balk it with organzied party activity. Instead they are playing a waiting game. They are waiting for events ultimately to produce a sit- lation where "someone above poli- ics—a symbol—a king, will be needed o hold the country together." How many royalist sympathizers here are, not even the count knows .But unquestionably, in the opinion f qualified observers, more and more Too Ure to Classify Youth Gets It's Chance to Work Not So Long Ago Work for Youths Unheard of By LUCRECE HUDGINS AP Feature Service Writer WASHINGTON - Remember the days when, Pop couldn't retire from business because his children came home to roost? Well, today many a youngster is building his pop a home in the country and stocking up the cupboard with foodstuffs for the lean days that may lie ahead. Youth finally has a chance to take off its coat and sweat at honest labor. Just for instance, here in Washington-the Boys and Girls Town of the nation-the D, C. Employment Center alone placed 34,332 young people in local jobs during the eighteen-month pe r£° d from Jan "ary 1940 to June 1941. The heads of that center say, "There has never been in the history of this organization so great an opportunity for unskilled labor." Over at the Labor Department, statisticians figure that America will need an additional 3 million workers before another year." And the I Apprenticeship Unit of the department adds, "Youth, unskilled youth will supply a large part of that need." iven the kids in school are becoming breadwinners, in 29 states, during the first 6 months of 1940, more than 1,200 youngsters received' certificates permitting them to do part- time work. But, what about the kids working m non-defense plants which have lo shut down because of priority dii- nculties? Where is their slice of the prosperity pie? Heads of the Federal Committee on Apprenticeship declare these boys are rapidly absorbed in defense industries. The problem is not one of reemployment but of migration. In most cases the youngsters must move to distant cities and this intensifies the already serious housing shortage in defense centers. What about opportunities for unskil- m™ Uth With no work training'at an. Well, it so happens that the Federal Committee on Apprenticeship is especially authorized by congress to tix things so that young boys, at work tor the first time, may learn skilled labor while actually on the job. Under this plan a young fellow goes to work for around 35 cents an hour. While he s learning the trade he's also speeding up the defense output During the last months of his apprenticeship, the youth gets as much as a dollar an hour. Of course, there's many a lad who still isnt able to draw a week's pay today. It may be because he hasn't found just the kind of job he wants. . Then again, it might be because he just doesn't feel like rolling up his sleeves and getting his hands dirty r Miserable With A nostril, ft ""(!)'„„„ branes, (2) soothes imrauioi helps clear cold-cloceed nasal passages.

Some of them are thinking seriously enough about it that they have asked Americans they met if they thought the United States would approve the restoration of the throne in France. But the count is not looking so much to his traditional friends among the intellectuals and aristocrats of top drawer French society as to the peasants and work folk who generally are recognzied as the backbone of France. His supporters say one reason why the movement never was more potent before is that no effort W m Lmade for a widc ' Popular appeal.
