The boy clutched a little Chi in his urtns. Andy loosened his hold and lifted the child away.

Mr. Andy U-it" Twjr had flxod him up in a plaster cast but he seemed cheerful. 'Of course I'd come, Nicky, do you feel?" 'My back hurts but the doctor says it's O.K." 'That's fine. I'll bet you were going up to toyland to sec that electric train Mr. Andy promised?" "Uh-huh." His small faco :louded. "Guess I'll be here for Christmas now. You can't have much Christmas In a hospital." "Don't you worry about that," she assured him. "Sometimes hospital Christtnases are the nicest of nil." And she determined to make it so. She spent the balance of the afternoon searching for a small tree and liny ornaments to match it. She bought a lot of little gifts and wrapped them separately in bright tissue, H would be fun for Nicky to open them. When she finished she went to look for Bill. Carol wanted him to go with her and Mary to the hospital in the morning. The closing bell sounded as she readied toyland. For a swift moment she remembered that this marked the end of another Christmas shopping season. A strange nostalgia swept her. Another year wa* quickly drawing to a' close. Too quickly! It meant there were only ten brief days for Andy to prove himself. Bill was sitting on his tinsel throne when she found him. He had his head in his hands. "'Bill!" she exclaimed as she rushed up to him. "What in the world is the matter? Surely you'r« not worrying about that aeddwit—" she caught herself. He looked up at her, his eyes weary ond disillusioned. "Santa Claus?" A cynical smile played havoc with his mouth. "Mr. Herrick just gave me my Christmas present. A yellow slip!" -Fired, Bill?" she gasped. "Yes. Fired. He wasn't man enough to come up and tell me. He had to send a printed note. Fired me as if 1 were no more than a Christnu»s extra!" "He's planning to blame you for the elevator accident," Carol blurted out "I heard him say as much to Andy this afternoon. It's unfair. I'm going to Andy myself. I'm going to tell him just what happened!" Bill rose heavily. "No, Carol. Thanks Just the same. If Andy's too blind to see what's going on lie won't take our word for it. He'll have to find Mr. Herrick out some other way." (To Be Continued) Alaska Puts Up a Guard All Efforts Are Concentrating on Defense By SAM JACKSON AP Feature Service Writer JUNEAU, Alaska-TOs land of the Eskimo, the totem pole and the midnight sun has forgotten tourist-trade color for awhile and is concentrating on all-out defense. Alaska is close to Japan, and it Is even closer to efficient air and submarine bases in Siberia, which Delegate Ahlhony J. Dimond Charges were constructed by Nazi technicians during the Russian-German collaboration. American territory, and Russian territory which concievably could be siezed by Japan, are in plain sight of each other on Behing strait. The nearest bodies of land are Russia's Big Diomed island and America's Little Diomed. Alaskans realize that their fish, furs, gold and forests make the territory a tempting prize. Roll Up Sleeves Today the situation is different from that in the World War of 1917-18 Then Alaska was drained of young manpower with no returns to itself The only substantial war activity wa< the production of the great Kennecoti copper mine. But for the last three years army, navy and teotrrlrial agencies have been at work to make Alaska as nearly impregnable as possible. On far-flung Unalaska island, within flying distance of Japan, the navy has been constructing a large base. Closer to the Alaskan mainland, bases are under way at Kodiak and Sitka. The army has big projects going at Anchorage, Fairbanks and Annette aland, An improved port and rail terminal is under construction at Whittier. A string of air fields is being constructed by the Civil Aeronautics Authority. They are closely linked with similar development in Vast British Columbia, a province larger than Washington, Oregon and California combined. As forewarning of tiie coming storm, at least two members of congress have demanded in the last year that the United States acquire air bases in Siberia which would complete a rainbow of airfields—reaching through Canada, Alaska and Siberia toward the heart of the Nipponese empire. What may have been done along this line is a military secret. A project to drive art international highway through to Alaska points from the Jpresent^'jumping off plate" at Hazelton, B.MJj| apparently has developed loo slowly for the present emergency. Alaska must till get its supplies by sea and—weather permitting—by air. An important prize in Alaska well worth fighting for, is the lowly fish. Allegedly ruthless Japanese methods of destroying the salmon which spawn in Alaskan waters have been a controversial subject for years. The immense output of Alaska sal-1 mon canneries likewise, .- r portant factor in th6 Aftteridfilt commissary and alsd in foocL to Britain.

S. _B> JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON - President Roosevelt's ninth year in office eclipses all that went before. The dark days garbled in the printing. These little outbreaks of humor throughout the day seem to whet his appetite for the gruelling work which ne now is putting in from almost dawn to midnight. To most of his intimates, however, the President's trait most often referred to is his unwaivering optimism. When he took his brief message Lo congress calling for the declaration at was on Japan, he was surrounded by army and navy and government officials who wore stony, funereal stares. But not the President, he already was looking ahead. A little more than 24 hours later, when he spoke over the radio to an estimated 90,000,000 people, he spoke words and phrases, on which he had no opportunity to spend hours of deliberation—yet official Washington almost unanimously called it his greatest speech and pointed out that although he pulled none of the punches about the seriousness of what had hanpened or what was to come, he left no "doubt about his confidence in ultimate success.

There followed the great lend-lease appropriations; the mammoth tax bills the Congressional battle for extension of the draft; the sa ddeath of the President's mother; that dramatic and unprecedented secret meeting of the President and Winston Churchill on the high seas; and at lust a great nation double-crossed at its own peace table and plunged into the holocaust that now rages in every part of the world. Friends and foes alike have watched the President at every turn and even some of the bitterest of the latter have expressed amazed damira- tkm at the quiet fortitude; the physical stamina; and the unflagging op- ilimism which the President has irought to bear in evevry crisis and especially in the last and greatest. 1 was at the President's first press conference after his third term nom- nation. 1 was present at those which followed the declarations of war. Physically, the President has changed little in this strenuous year, only twice has he had the colds and sinus which irritate him. There have been gray days when he looked older and wearied from the strain but oddly enough, these almost invariably have been in the lulls between major events. A crisis seems to challenge him physically as well as mentally and from that seem- ingy inexhaustible well of energy, he draws what is necessary to rise to fresh buoyancy and see it through in the pink. Remarkably few have been the times in press conferences this year when the President has been sharp or irritable. More often his ^ood humor a little quieter than it used to be but no less present, has risen unfailingly to lighten the load in hand. Even when the Congressional delegation came to the White House offices to discuss the declarations of war on Germany and Itoly, they found I the President chuckling over a clop- I ping of "instructions for air raw wardens" that had gotten grotesquely HOPE NASHVILLE ©eo.
