Slill held by Amy Ellen's story, Marian crowded close to Dan. "I like to (iwncc willi you, Dan." "Me, too," he said indifferently, "How do you think Carma i.s going over willi Randy? Seems to me he's paying a lot of attention to Dolly." Marian glanced into the living room. Bill had challenged Carma to a game of pinochle. Amy Ellen was sitting on the arm o£ Bill's chair, vastly interested. "Dan," Marian said, "shouldn't we be a little bit sentimental on our 12th wedding anniversary?" "] cluimu—should we?" he asked blankly. His indi/1'crence piqued her. The tiredness which she had noticed so much or late was creeping over her and with it came irritability. "At least you can pretend to care for me when people arc looking." "Why?" "Dan, you're impossible tonight. Just what did you mean by your speech at dinner?" "Nothing. I wasn't prepared." "Well, I think it was very poor taste to air our difficulties to the world." "I didn't know we had any difficulties. Guess we're just about as happy as the average couple." He was deliberately dodging the point. She was ready to cry with impotent rage. "I wish we'd never had this party. You didn't have to stand up and make fun, oi me. I know I work. I know I haven't been satisfied to be a drudge on—" He stopped so quickly that she stumbled. "Let's not go into that tonight," he said gruffly. Leaving her, he went to Amy Ellen. "How about stepping off a few measures with the old maestro?" he asked lightly. * * * rpHE party continued until after •*• 2. To the guests it appeared to have been a most successful en- tertalnment. They had sat in a circle on the floor, playing nonsensical games ot Randy's devising. They had laughed at anything and nothing. They prepared id leave with reluctance. tTo Marian the last half of IKe evening liarJ been a nightmare of weariness and forced gaiety. Her face felt slid' and drawn, her eyes seemed to have sunk into her head, her hands shook with fatigue. She went to the bedroom with the girls. Amy Ellen kissed her. "I've had a grand time, Marian. Old friends are the best," she said lovingly. Carma still glittered, but she had been more like herself, joining in the fun and helping it along, As Amy Kllen left the bedroom she said, "I missed the boat when I let Pete get away and don't think I aon't know it. I want a home and a husband and I don't care if the home has a tight roof or not. I moan, I wouldn't care if Pete were in the house." Marian asked, "Do you like Randy?" Carma shrugged. "Yes, I do— but he can't see me." "He's taking you home—I heard him ask you." "Oh, yes, but that means nothing. I haven't got what it takes any more." The glitter in her eyes was suddenly tears. "When a woman loses the man she loves, it does something to her, Marian. She loses something that has made her desirable to other men. Perhaps it's her own awareness of not being wanted—oh, I'm a silly fool." Marian gazed at her silentlyy feeling her hurt. Carma put a gloved hand on her arm. Moving, her trappings jingled. "If a woman has a man to love her, she's just plain lucky. You have Dan— you don't know—you have no idea—" She left the room, painted smile, jingling baubles, costly Parisian clothes. * * * TROLLY stayed a few minutes to talk things over. She sat down in a big chair, one foot curled under her, the honey of her hair a splash against the dark upholstery. Marian went to the bedroom, slid out of her clothes, and returned in a velvet robe and brocaded slippers. Snapping off all the lights except one lamp, she dropped wearily to the davenport. Dan sat on a footstool in the pale circle of light from the lamp. • "Wasn't it a grand party?" Dolly asked with tireless enthusiasm. "Uh-huh," Dan agreed absentmindedly. "You never know when you have a mixed crowd like that. It might have been a flop just as easy—" At the tinkle of a bell across the hall, Dolly jumped to her feet. "Who can be calling me at this hour?" She left both doors open and they distinctly heard the one- sided conversation. ''Hello—oh, hello—no, I yras talking to Marian and Dan—oh, I see." Right there a soft, excited giggle. "Of course I would have been here in the morning—what?" And, after a short .silence. "I—think so—I think I'd love it. Um- hmrn—all right." Dolly came slowly back to the Hurkness door. Her eyes were as round as a child's, she looked slightly breathless. "You wouldn't believe it," she gasped faintly. "Believe what?" Dan and Marian asked in u chorus. "That was Randy Means." * * * J)AN swung around on his footstool. Tired as she was, Marian sat up. "Randy Means—" they both exclaimed, laughing at the oneness of their speech. Dolly did not laugh, she looked Utterly bewildered. "Where was he?" Marian asked. "He just left here with Carma." "He was in a drug store—Carma was out in his car." "Great guns," Dan roared. "Couldn't he wail until tomorrow?" "That's what I asked him." Dolly blushed a deeper hue. "He said something silly about being afraid to wait until tomorrow. He said he could get glamor girls at a dollar a gross, but-V "What else did he say?" Dan wanted to know, greatly amused. "Well—he asked me to have dinner with him tomorrow'night." Marian was overcome. Shoddy, unpretentious little Dolly—Randy Means, one of the most eligible bachelors in town. Dan was less impressed. "The lad shows darn good judgment, I'll say." Marian found words. "But— what'll you wear? He'll take you to some swanky place." Again color flooded Dolly's round cheeks. "He asked me to wear this." She looked down on her pink gown. "He said he was allergic to Paris finery." "I give up," Marian groaned, falling back on the pillows. What was it all about? Women strove for luxuries and beauty, they bartered every normal instinct for material things. And what did they get in return? Husks, nothing else. Tranversely, simple, easily satisfied persons like Dolly, women who neither knew how to dress or walk or talk cleverly, inherited the earth. A depression, compounded of envy and hate and utter disillusionment swept over Marian. But she had Dan—Carma had told her to hold on to Dan. She said, "Dan—" He did not answer. She heard him moving about the bedroom. (To Be Continued) Bruce Catton Says: Wai- Boom Hasn't Produced U. S.

By BRUCB CATTON NIOA Washington Coiresiioitdenf _ WASHINGTON — If European war i.s bringing u boom In American industry, the boom has not yel genci filed ;< shortage of skilled labor-not, at least, as fur us anyone here knows. There have been occasional re-*) -.-.._ ports of skilled labor shortages, and] it i.s- admitted here that such isolated shortages may appear in certain lines in individual cities, but if any general shortage- is imminent for the country as a whole, no sign of it is visible in. Washington. "A WORD io the WISE ^ (he headquarters of the American Federation of Labor, it is said that any shortage would probably be visible first in the metal trades group, which includes skilled machinists in various lines—including airplane factories. For the United Stales as a whole, about lf> per cent of all metal trades workers are now unemployed, according to AFL statistics. This is about twice the percentage of unemployment normal in good times—192!). for instance, or the best months of 1937 It is not spread uniformly over the country, however. In certain industrial centers, AFL records indicate that there i.s practically no unemployment in the metal trades. No Quick Cut in Unemployment Shortages might develop in those cities, but the AFL .statisticians say they would be only temporary: their best guess is that even a man-sized industrial boom would not cut metal trades unemployment down to normal before the end of the year. At CIO headquarters even more skepticism about any skilled labor shortage is expressed. U. S. Employ- | Sin Is Deceptive, Says Evangelist Rev, L. ,T.

Embassy Issues Warning to Citizens Still in Moscow MOSCOW, Russia—i/Pi-Tbe United States embassy Friday advised American tourists who have no compelling reason for staying to leave Soviet Russia. In the electrical and radio man- fucluring industries;. CIO statisticians', .say there are ;>0,000 skilled men unemployed, with an equal number holding unskilled production line jobs. The CIO 'people say a recent survey showed that there are at least 10.000 skilled machinists who are willing to 'go anywhere' 'to take jobs in the airplane factories if they are needed. Since aircraft production i.s largely concentrated on the west coast, it is admitted that there might temporary shortage while men getting to thc scene. I In the automobile field, the CIO claims that improved production processes have caused an increasing displacement of .skilled worcrs during the last seven or eight years. A violent boom might exhaust the current "reseroir" of immediately a- valiable skilled men: many more would soon be available, however, it is asserted, if formerly skilled workers who have drifted into other lines (or into no lines at alii were given a bit of re-traininR. Steel Is Safe From Labor Shortage Thc same thing is true in steel, says the CIO. only more so. The steel indiiKliy today, say CIO lenders, .could produce its 1037 output with 85.000 fewer workers than it needed in 1937. Steel might run into just one trouble a shortage of miners in the Lak Superior iron ore countryq. Beyond that, the CIO people can't imagine a steel labor shortage anywhere. There has been a lot of unemployment in the shipyards for years, though it has been cut down considerably of late. CIO knows of no impending shortage there, and says there is much unemployment in thc maritime field. The Maritime Com- ission reports that so far none of the firs contracting to build ships for the government have reported any labor shortages.
