Sorted rnfinyscripts, assisted Miss Todd with last-niinute typing, helped Lgrkin sort Stephen's clothes. Wften. Adela learned of Stephen's pjans, she produced a well- Seveloped ca,se of hysteria. "Why do you have- to go?" she stormed. "Qf all the men in the world, they pick on you! You're too valuable a person to send into danger!" "Don't talk like a child!" Ste-, ptyeii sale] imjpatiently. "There is no danger in air travel today!" ''Ships crash every day!" Adela cried, "What's to become of me?" "Diana is to take charge of things until I come back!" Stephen said it as calmly as possible, glancing sidewise to see how she tqpk it. Adela's sobs ceased abruptly. Her tear-streaked eyes were wide with horror and amazement. Her iijouth became a tight line of de- Q?nce. f'You mean that stenograr pher is-r- 1 ' W«M f , q-VJ .-j 4»je to cewstipatiow and kidney w.e^kneas gave me 9 lot of misery.

"Now, look here, Adela, I don't want any opposir tion to ray plans. I'm top busy to deal with hysteria, piana is to be in charge until I return, and I want your piomise here anc now that you'll co-operate with her in every way!" Adela was breathing rapidly furiously. "You'd put her above me! You've fallen ija love with her!" Stephen's busy hands stayed. She's not your wife!" Adela jaged, "She never h,as beep gverybody knows ttiat!" «Nobody toaows uipless you've old; them!" Stephen Wte with iidden harshness. Then with an ppealing _gestiire, he placed his lands on her shoulders. "Come, Adeja, let's not quarrel. I'm going away. Dp me the favor of giving me a cheerful goodby. I'm sure Diana will meet you more than lalf way if; you'll do your part. Mow you'll have to run along. 've a million things to do!" But after Adela had left the •com, Stephen stood quietly by he hearth for some time, doing nothing. "I have fallen in love with her," he said to himself. * * * f ATK that afternoon Stephen and Diana walked over to Pey;on Square so that Stephen might sid Evalyn goodby. They found Phil there and the four enjoyed a quiet cup of tea. "It's wopderful that they place so much confidence in you, Stephen," Evalyn said glowingly. 'And I promise I'll, do my best p keep Diana from being lonely." Diana felt Phil's eyes upon her, questioning, and her cheeks lushed warmly. Surely everyone must guess how she felt about Stephen! Stephen glanced up, ntercepted the look between Diana and Phil, did not under-? stand it at all. He frowned thoughtfully. A little later they walked over ;o see old Ellen Curt, then home ;ogether. The hectic evening passed, and it was dawn. A cold, apprehensive dawn. Diana and Adela, accompanying Stephen to ;he airpprt, shivered in fur coats. It was difficult to believe that only a few days agp it had been warm and balmy. Now murky skies defied the efforts of the sun to find an opening, and the wind whistled through leafless trees. The great plane throbbed in readiness, all was hurry and bustle. And almost before they knew what was happening, the co-pilot said, "Better get aboard, Mr. Curt!" Stephen nodded and turned to the two girls. He took Adela in his arms, kissed her fpndly several times. Then to Diana he simply extended his hand. "Re member your promise!" lie said quietly. Diana's eyes were on his, hungrily seeking. Was he npt .even going to take her in his arms j" in this moment of gpodby? '.She ached tp feel their strength abpu her, to know the comforting assurance of his trust in her. Bu he only gripped her fingers hare and released them. "I'll stand by," she said thickly "Thanks. GOQ.iibyl" Me was gone! Through eyes heavily misted, Diana watched the great plaria 1 " ake off, rise gracefully and finally jecome a disappearing speck in he gray curtain overhead. Noj jeing sure just how Stephen te\\ about her. More uncertain now han ever, in view of his casual eave-taking. He was willing jo place an expanse pf several thou-r and miles between them, without even taking her in his arms at farewell. Surely that proved hat he was utterly indifferent to ' icr. She turned to join the sobbing Adela in the car, and found that ler head was aching with a dull, throbbing agony. She 'wanted desperately to get home, wanted he sanctuary of her lovely room where she could cry her heart put n solitude. * * * r PHE days that followed were a. •*• nightmare to Diana—a nightmare in which she sat chained to the radio. It had been like that ever since the news had first come hrough that Stephen's plane had disappeared. A newscaster in an all-too-casual voice had said, 'Last word received from the Sikorsky amphibian flying toward uayaquil, Ecuador, came frpm Pilot Pete Smith whp reported .hat he was circling down through lieavy skies to find better visi- jility. Some cpncern is felt for the welfare of the 15 passengers, among whom is Stephen Curt, well-known writer arid ppUtipal commentator." Adela hovered close by, her animosity toward Diana forgotten in her anxiety for Stephen. Her eyes were red from weeping, her handkerchief crumpled into a soggy ball. Elva Todd, anguish in her eyes, was a tower of quiet strength. Phil, too, scarcely left Diana's side and on that last night when uncertainty became reality, Evalyn and Richard Thorpe joined the group. Adela had sent fpr her Aunt Christine, a small, plump, helpless person with a crifty eye and chubby, grasping hands. Diana had disliked Aunt Christie from tjie first, feeling her allied with Adela against her. With a childlike air of proprietorship, Aunt Christie helped herself to the most comfortable chairs, Diana's favorite magazines, and ordered the choicest foods prepared for herself. "When you're an old lady, my dear, you'll understand how necessary comfort is!" she explained, sighing luxuriously. Diana wondered if there were others of Stephen's family, realizing how little she really knew of the man she had married. (To JJe Sounds Lige q 'Code in the Head' MEMPHIS, Tenn.— (/P)— A shortwave radio listener here thought he was tuned in . o nsome international intrigue when he heard there words repeated in precise English: "If I claim to explain the weight of a piece of iron, if I say that an orange consists of soft, yellow, juicy atoms; or if I say that a marshmallow is made of sweet, white, stick atoms; or a piece of iron is made of hard, black, shiny, conductive atoms, you recognize at -once that those are not serious or common series—that they are just -futila and somewhat ridiculous statements.' But it wasn't . code; merely the transatlantic , overseas -telephone station at Riverliead;" L. I., testing for diction. A man came into a bank and wanted to borrow ?5. He was told that the bank did npt lend such small sums. "But," he went on, "lending, money is your business, isn't it?" The banker admitted'it was. "Well, I've got good security," said the stranger, "and I want to borrow J5." Finally the banker agreed to make the loan. When the note was drawn and the interest of 30 cents paid, the stranger drew front his pocket $10,000 worth of Government bonds and handed Ihem over as security. Before the banker could recover from his astonishment the stranger said, "Now, this is something like it. Over at the other bank they wanted to charge ine $10 just for a safe deposit box to keep these things in." Beekeeping has become a growing and remuneartive industry in Manitoba and other prairie provinces of Canada. Our DailyBread (Continued From Page One) >enefit ot the conqueror? The Nazis really thought they could do it. Their success among their own jpjp, using streamlined techniques of mass persuasion and the rubber truncheon, led .them to believe they could succeed equally easily in any j'qllen land. The Qermany of J933, When the Nazis came tp dominate U. was a land of desperation, of griding poverty, social inequality, closed op- portqnity, a sick land without hope. What worked in that Germany failed later in a conquered Norway, Netherlands, Fran.ce, Greece,' Yugoslavia, eyen in Poland. The formula which worked so well at 51 given time and in a given place, failed to work at all in other times and in other places. The Germans had failed to learn from tlie Russians, who also had a universal formula. The Bolsheviks' thought that a formula which worked in feudal, war-shattered, oriental Russia must also work in other lands. But it didn't, and the World Revolution never wime. Instead, it bred thr World Counter - Revolution, called Fascism. Now that, too, is dernon- strating its failure. Months after all Europe had been conquered, what do the Nazi leaders find? Eighty thour nd Serbs fighting a bitter guerilla war. Nazi soldiers fhot in the back in the streets of Paris and Amsterdam. Belgian veterans of World War 1 "conspiring" (they remember) against their cpn- ijuerors. Heads falling in Norway and tows of graves in Poland and Greece. Why? Because the Nazis were wrong. They have led the European horse by a bloody bridle to the brink of Nazism's flood, only to find that the obstinate beast refuses to drink. Drink he will not, now or ever, except willingly ajid of the sweet water.- of freedom. That is where the Nazis, with their stupendous effrontery, made their blind mistake. "BOTH HARMLESS!"

Note that the newspaper REPORTED it as an opinion. But Henry didn't read his paper CAREFULLY. Henry accepted the professor's opinion as a fact. And a few days later, when he met a skunk, he bent down and PATTED it. Now Henry's neighbors won't let him live his own life in his own way . . ; There are MANY facts and opinions reported in your newspaper.

Opinions such as editorial comments on world events, guesses as to future events. You will like some of the facts, dislike others. You will agree with some opinions, disagree with others—but that isn't important. What 7S important is that your newspaper JS FREE to bring you both—and that you use your judgment to tell the DIFFERENCE between them.
