Tlie time 1 was here he was always pushing me to «*ttl« down—to keep my now? to Ib? desk—" He stopped. •Of course, you're not interested m that." A cool voice cut in. "Why should sho be. darling? After all she was only hi* fcienographcr." Carol drew back. Linda II with »n amazingly clear skin under her cruise tan.: Her eyes were a contemplative yellow- green. Her mouth now wore n derisive smile.-; "Let's t go in the offlcxr «nd got <?ut of noi»e," Linda urged. For the first time Carol realized the footsteps of hundreds of customers might be called noise. She had thought ot them as music, It meant business was good at Dearborn's. Andy's eyes continued to hold Carol's as he said absently to Linda, "Yts, of course," He turned and touched the knob ot his father's office, paused. Then quickly, he turned it, opened the door and went in. TT was Linda who closed the •*• door behind them. Carol, busy at her desk, triec not to listen to the rise and fal of their voices or to speculate about the silences between. She must not let Andy's presence arouse all her old unhap- pincss. Now, before she had to carry out the terms of the will she must harden her heart agains him. She must stifle her love. When Linda came out she sale to Andy. "You won't be long, wil you, darling? You promised me u drive you know. I love to ride in the snow." She swept past Carol's desk and through the doorway to the balcony. Then she pulled up abruptly. She had collided with Nicky. The impact scattered his papers over the snow-wet floor beneath the feel of the crowd. "You careless boy," Linda scolded. "Why don't you watch where you're going?" "I'm sorry, mam," he said rc- beUiously. He ducked between the shopper* to retrieve his wet papers. Clutching them in his mall brown hands he came to Carol's desk. "Jiminy-gec, Miss Carol! That dame comin* out of your office hit ne like a truck. Then says," his boyish voice mocked hers, " 'You :areless boy.' " Carol slanted a glance at the nner office and saw Andy stand- ng in the doorway. He was bound o hear Nicky's words. She shook her head to silence the boy. "She's friend of Mr. Dearborn's, Nlc- y," she said desperately. "She came from his office." Nicky grabbed off his hat. •Jiminy-gee!" he exclaimed. His mouth gaped. His face turned an embarrassed pink. "Better be more careful, boy," Andy's voice was annoyed. "What arc you doing up here anyway? Can't you sell your papers on the street?" Nicky twisted his cap. "I—you sec—" he stammered. "It was jis* —well, Mr. Dearborn al'ays bought a paper from me and he wanted it In a hurry. He'd be standin' there jis' liko you, waitln* for me. Now—well—I jis' keep comin'. la a hurry. I like to think—" Carol couldn't look at Andy. The boy began to back away, Andy stopped him. "Here, son," he said gently, "how many papers did you spoil?" "Oh, that's all right I can lose 'cm." Andy's mouth was firm but his eyes were warm. "How many?" he persisted. Nicky surveyed his armful. " 'Bout twelve, maybe. But it's all right. I guess 1 ought to have come slower—" Andy fished some coins from his pocket and pushed them into Nicky's hand. '"You can count me a regular customer, too, Nicky. Every day." The boy grinned his thanks. "Jiminy-gee!" "And Nicky," Andy added quietly as the boy turned to go, "I'll want my paper—in a hurry." (To Be Continued) Defense Front State Board Call for Increased Production Absolute defense on the Arkansas [arm front has been called for by the late Defense Board. Treacherous action by Japan fol- owed by declaration of war by Germany, Italy and other Nazi satellites make it more necessary than ever be- brc that farmers of Arkansas and other states Of the nation keep on iroducing food as it is needed, when t is needed and in the needed quan- Jties," J. 8.'Daniels, chairman of the Stale Board, said In a message to Earl Cing, chairman of the county defense ward. "The results of thn sing-up of farm plnn sheets shows that farmers of the itslc have met the goals assigned to hem by the stale defense board in :he Food and Freedom campaign^ Secretary Wickard recently slated that it may be necessary to revise the goals for certain crops due to the recent war developments. The state board and county boards are ready to make any revisions that department of agriculture officials and farm leaders of the nation deem necessary," Daniels continued. In addition to producing food, farm- t ih6 cdlmty 1 were advised to 1 'rel double their efforts id repair farm ftia-' chlnery tot busy times next spring. Farmers of the ciuhty have been asked by the county defense board to check their machinery, order necessary parts now and notify the county defense board if parts arc not available. With congested shipping facilities anticipated next spring because of the all-out defense program, considerable delay might be experienced by farmers if they do not order parts early. . • "We've entered this war equipped with more food, feed and fiber than at 'any other time in history. We'll need to produce still more in the total destruction of the enemy," Chairman King said. Texas Technical College has made uniforms for the members of its 70- piece band from wool woven in the school's own mills.

In 1913 he went to Uo,ston tu study Englisli, living with a family named wheeler. Years Inter, oil duty in Washington, lie spent every Christmas with them. Busliy-browc<i, olmost bald, 61-year- old Nagano is bigger than most Japanese, Hiulw his iffiCL'rs call him "the elephant." Gen. Gen Sugi.vania L Japanese chief of staff, was one of the "big army" men who helped r-ush his country into the costly war with China. He was war minister at Die time. He loathes 'liberalism and was influential in pushing through the fascistic national mobilization bill of 1938. He was active in sabotaging liberal cabinets. He probably is less powerful in inner army circles, however, than Gen. Jiro Minami, leader of the hot-head "Minami Clique."
