PAGE FOUR HOPE STAR, HOPE, ARKANSAS Monday, August 28,. 1939 Propaganda Rife inNJJforldFair But Much of It Is Amusing, Like Footnote in Russian Cafe WASHINGTON - We liuvi; boon 'old by returning visitors that propaganda is rampant at the World's Fair. Ami why not'.' wo ask . The foreign exhibits iviiil for the privilese. But the chinocsT piece '.>> v-vopagmvrU coming v> our ,-jitontion \v,is ;i .subtle little note t.'n the bottom of the menu in the Russian rafe 'No tipping." it say.s "All Soviet workers ;\ne acteqUKtely p-aid." The only trouble with that bit <'f subtlety is that it isn't going to reach the inasje.-. Not lit the prices the foreign restaurants seem tc> bo charging. Just to preserve the foreign atmosphere for a moiiunt we will tell you about our little Italian friend \vho is keeping his: bay in school in Switzerland. The boy likes American clothes since good ones are cheaper here than there Giuseppe buys them. But the duty on new clothes is terrific. It is practically nothing on secondhand clothes so Giuseppe wears the clothes two weeks before lie ships them. JVovv Cuisepye is slight ;jjid while his boy was high-school size the system worked very well. The suits fit Giuseppe. But not any more. Now a days he slops around his shop in brand new shoes size nine when his own size is six. He rolls up the cuffs of the trousers, takes in a hitch at the belt and turns the sleeves back under. Then comes the pleasant little story of how the Federal Reserve board vetoed the President's veto. Congress was considering a bill to extend until 1943 the time during which bankers could be directors in more than one bank. Congress out lawed such "interlocking directorates" in 1934. but since then has kept postponing the effective date. The Federal Reserve board was fear- • SERIAL STORY Murder on the Boardwalk BY ELIN ° RE COWAN STONE " ** • *• ™ V* IIX COPYRIGHT. 1B5IC> MTA ornui<-» IK... COPYRIGHT, 1»90, NEA SGRVICK. INC.

CHAPTER XIII pHRISTINE spent the rest of the ^ morning in the last place where she thought curiosity seekers would look for the "Boardwalk Mystery Girl" — the public library —with her too-well-publicized face buried in a newspaper, her mind still worrying about the story Mr. Wilniet had told her, her eyes impatiently watching the clock. At 12:30 she was to meet Bill for lunch — that is, if Bill were still "in circulation." When she reached the restaurant, the worst of her fears were realized. As soon as she asked for Bill, a waiter led her to a table. "IVIr. Yordley has sent u-ord that we are to serve you at once, Miss," he told her. "And he sent this note for you." "Sorry," the note said. "Can't make it. Please leave reply with Louis, the waiter who will hand you this — and who is as safe as a church — saying where I can find you about 9 this evening." Christine let the lunch Bill had ordered cool while she composed a reply which sketched an outline of her plan for the evening without betraying the confidence of "Lucille." At the end she added, as a possible line of communication, "Am dining at Decker's with Air. Wilmet." Mr. Wilmet insisted on Christine's ordering the dinner, sitting back without even glancing at the menu, although he must have known that Decker's prices were appalling. TQie service was leisurely. and Mr. Wilmet, too, was leisurely — and tiresome — with a long account of his persecutions by the police and press. He insisted on taking a wheel chair back down the Boardwalk. When, a little short of the Paris Shop, she insisted on saying "Good night," Mr. Wilmet's face clouded with concern. "I really don't 'think you ought to be alone on the Boardwalk," he objected, "after what's just hap- I better — ah — see destination?

Hadn't you to your course" — he laughed nervously — "I'm not exactly a fighting man, but I might help in case of trouble." "Thanks," Christine said impa- to'ently. "There won't be any trouble. I'm spending the evening with a girl I've kno%vn for years." She was afraid he might follow r: but when she looked back, he was going dejectedly into a tobacco shop. ( QHRISTINE had no difficulty in identifying the girl, who stood before the shop window as if rapt by a pair of silver sandals. When Christine paused and removed her sunglasses, the girl glanced up with a flicker of recognition, returned for a moment to her inspection of the sandals, and then strolled off along the Boardwalk. Presently Christine followed, sauntering as the other girl did. At the top of a flight of stairs leading to the street below, the girl glanced back before she descended. She walked on a block, turned into a side street, unlocked a door, and went in, leaving the door ajar. For the first time Christine hesitated. After all, what did she know of this girl except that it was her voice which had first sounded that ominous note of danger which had run like a motif through the last 24 hours? . . . Then her curiosity got the better of her, and she passed through the door. She found herself in n poorly lighted, inhospitable hall, from which a stairway ascended into darkness behind. Christine wondered if she were mistaken in thinking that something moved in the shadows of that stairway. The girl who called herself "Lucille" was waiting. "Come in here, please, Miss Thorenson," she said abruptly, and opened the door upon a lighted room. Christine stood amazed at the contrast between the bleak ugliness of the hall and the quiet good taste and comfort of that room. The room was pleasantly lighted; a soft Oriental rug covered the floor; two of the walls were lined with books; and there were comfortable chairs. It was a room, somehow, to inspire confidence. Yet Christine felt no confidence now, even in herself. Before she could speak, a man she had not seen at first got up from a desk that stood in a sheltered alcove. Chandra! * * * JJE had shed every trace of the Oriental mystic. From his unobtrusive appearance and the quiet precision with which he spoke and moved, one might easily —as she had that first night—have taken him for a well-trained major domo. For Christine realized that she had seen those tawny-brown eyes not just once, but twice before. "Yes," he anticipated her as she tried to reconstruct that brief encounter on the station platform, "you have seen me before. . . . The first time you may not recall. You thought your cousin might have sent me— That disguise wns a good one. I did not expect you to remember." "It wns your eyes, not your clothes, that I noticed. . . . You said you were Inking a train," Christine said thoughtfully. "Yes —I see." ^ "And of course," he said dryly, "it will confirm your worst suspicions when your I admit sits- that I dropped oft' the other side of that train before it pulled out, and that I was in the taxicab behind yours when To Renew Pledge (Continued from Fnge One) cuntiitncd in an exchange of messages Hie last two days between the two statesmen.

Christine broke out angrily, "I was crazy to come here. I guessed from the beginning that this girl was one of your spies." "I suppose that it's no use to expect you to believe that I am really trying to bo honest with you," the clairvoyant went on quietly. "But it is quite true that I was iisked (o keep :m eye on your movements by someone whom your cousin had expected to meet you, but who was—unable to do so. I agreed to do it because" —he broke off as if searching for words that might hold her attention—"because I know that I am —partly responsible for Mrs. Talbert's death-." "Are you so sure that you have deceived the police," Christine gasped, "that you dared to trick me into coming here and—" "I said," he interrupted'with n faint smile, " 'partly responsible.' . . . You see, Miss Thorcnson, people come here for such a variety of reasons. They want, for instance, to be told how to find things they have lost; where their husbands are spending their evenings; whether they will get the jobs they want; whether that pain that worries them is what they fear it is; whether the time is right . There cannot answer directly it you are honest. . . , You try, if you arc wise, not to complicate family troubles or to give advice involving large sums of money. . . . There are other questions you must not answer fully. Those are the questions involving life and death." "This is very interesting," Christine interrupted impatiently. "But why does it concern me—or my cousin's death?" "Because Mrs. Talbert's case, Miss Thorenson, was one of the 'must-nols.' Partly on that account, and partly because there were—circumstances I did not entirely understand, I did not warn your cousin of her danger." nation.

Almost at the same time the bill did pass and went up to the President. He promptly vetoed it, reminding Congress that it better make up its mind and either put an end to interlocking bank directorates o r else repeal the law. The President's veto didn't take effect. It killed the bill. But the I Federal Reserve order was valid so bank directors can interlock until February 1.

You are a Frenchman, Herr Dala- dier. and I therefore know how you would act. I a'm a German. Herr Daladier. Do not doubt my sense of honor nor my consciousness of duty to «ict exactly like you. If, then, you had the misfortune that is ours, would you then, Herr Daladier, have any understanding Germany were without cause to insist that the corridor through France remained, that the robbed territory must not he restored, arid that the return of Marseille to France be forbidden? Certainly 1 cannot imagine, Herr Dijladier, that Germany would fight aiiiiiu.si you for this reason. For, I and all of us, have renounced Alsace- Lorraine in order to avoid further bloodshed. Much less would be siied blood in order to maintain an injustice that riurit needs bo as unbearable.' for you us it would be immaterial to us. 1 feel exactly as you do whtil you write in your letters, Herr Dala- dier. I-usMbly we, as old front fighters. can best understand each oilier in ; number of fields, I ask you, however do understand this also: That it i:. impossible for a nation of honor to renounce the claim of almost tw million human beings and to see then maltreated at its own borders. I have therefore set up a clear demand I Poland. Danzig and the Corridor mus go back to Germany. The Macedonia, conditions on our eastern frantic must be removed. I see no way of persuading Poland, which feels herself as unassailable now that she enjoys the protection of her guarantees, to accept a peacful solution, .should however, despair of an honorabl future for my people if we were not determined under such circumstances to solve the problem in one way or another. Poland to Be Lost If our tosv countries on that account .should be destined to meet iii>ain rat the field of battle, there would nevertheless be a difernc in ih mot i vs. I, Herr Daladier, shall be leading my people in a fight to rectify a wrong, whereas the others will be fighting to preserve that wrong. That is the more tragic .since many important rnen, also among your own people-, have recognized Ihe insanity of the solutions then found (meaning at Versailles) as also the impossibility of maintaining it lastingly. I am perfectly clear about the- serious con.se- quenco.s which such a conflict will entail. 1 believ, however, the Poles would have to bear the greatest burden for, regardless of who wins in a war about thi.s question, the Polish stale of today will be lost in any way you calculate. Thai, our low peoples .should now enter a new, bloody war of destruction is painful not only for you but also for me, Herr Daladier.
