Co»iKns£»m<u» Dies is famed prin- fipttlly for hi* digs at the Communists. mid more recently for his exposes t)l Nu/i activities. Most people won't rpcnll that Dies ever raised much putting on of the lid make interesting background in the light of recent developments. FBI Trouble The case goes back to some of the earlier Dies investigations. Some agencies of the government complained that the committee's open hearings were upseting administrative apple- carts. Nearly all of the executive agencies bellyached at the accusations on Communistic leanings of some of their employes, but the Department of Justice in particular, it seems, did not like the way the Dies disclosures interfered with the work of the FBI What the Justice boys claimed was that the open nature of the Dies activities interfered with the undercover work of the G-men. According to Dies investigators, this Hopped-Up Soil for Hay-Hay New Way Believed Found for Growing ing Alfalfa AP Feature 'Service BLACKSBUHG, Va. - Southern agricultural scientists believe they have found a way to keep alfalfa from going to pot, and get it to go to seed Instead. The queen of legume crops is a fickle seed producer at best, and in the southeastern states rarely seeds at all. Growers in this section also hove observed for many years that alfalfa stands persist for only short Period*, with yields so low that a stand becomes uneconomical by the end of the second year. Dr. A. L. Grizzard, associate agronomist _ at the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station, has just completed teste with application of boron to alfalfa which may help solve the alfajfa problems of the south. After North Carolina investigators determined that small quantities of boron per acre corrected "alfalfa yellows, .which caused the crop to die out, . Virginia experimenters found that boon-treated alfalfa in 1940 blossomed much more profusely than untreated plots. This looked like a.clue to the seeding enigma, so they followed it up m 1941 and gathere as much as 184 pounds of alfalfa seed to' the acre, where 15 pounds of borax (a commercial form of boron) per acre was applied. Alfalfa grown under identical conditions, but without borax set no seed. The seed was gathered ffter two cuttings of hay had been harvested. Subjected to germination tests, 70 to 85 per cent of the seed germinated, thus proving its ability to produce another crop. This production, at the rate of two to three bushels of seed per acre, would assure seed producers a profit in additio* to their hay cuttings. * STORIES IN STAMPS fore taking up the hunt. Four months or so ago, the Dies in- yestigators got interested in the activities of Japanese consuls and Central Japanese Assocciation . which seemed to be the principal organization of Japanese-Americans in the United States. After getting a couple of file cabinets full of evidence and lining up some 50 witnesses, to testify, Dies not- iifed the executive end .of the government he would like to hold some hearings and show the country what was going on.

I don't know how you stand them!" "They're the store, Linda," he said quietly. "My father's store ' thought I'd made that clear to you." Her eyes were veiled with dis- tas , t ,? > " Wnen will you be ready to "The party isn't over. It'll be into," He hesitated, then said quite distinctly, "You'd better not wait for me." Her face darkened. "Don't worry. I won't! You and your slumming! icure welcome to nil nf iii" st,<» ioure welcome to all of jt!" She whirled around and stalked away * * * J ' CHAPTER must have been standing in the doorway for minutes While Andy held Carol in his arms end kissed her. How much she tould have seen in the darkened room, Carol could only guess. Linda's cool, scoffing voice was a challenge. "Are you ready- finally?" she said to Andy. He gave her a most engaging ymile. "No, Linda," he said easily, "I still have to play my part." Jealousy flashed in her eyes. "I supposed you were doing that just now." Carol's face went pink. "No," Andy said levelly. "I wear a costume when I'm playing a part. You'll know by that." He touched Carpi's arm and guided her back to Bill. A few minutes later Andy appeared in the half-n-half suit Which his father had originated. When he turned his back—Santa CJaus. But when he came forward —Father Time. Behind him he pulled the ridicu- ous wagon piled high with sou- /enirs for everyone. Someone clapped. Others joined until the room roared 'with approval. Linda, unmoving, watched from the doorway. When Andy came to ner he made an elaborate bow and presented her with a gilt horn. She threw it to the floor angrily. "T^HE party tried in vain to recap- turo the gaiety of the evening but Lmdn had taken it with her Only when Andy announced he had a surprise for everyone did it regain some of its lost enthusiasm. The lights dimmed and a spotlight fell on a wide door. In a moment, they heard the soft roll of wheels. Nicky, a smile engulfing every feature except his eyes and mouth, sat in a wheel chair before them They surged forward, greeting him, laughing over him. Andy gave him a lapful of souvenirs and the party ended happily. Carol was quiet as she went home with Bill and Mary. Their laughter and small talk found, her unresponsive. She was back on the dance floor in the dimness of starlight, feeling again the sweet torture of Andy's lips on her own. At the door, Bill lingered after Mary had thanked them and gone in. "It's all right, Carol," he said finally. "I see—now." "See, Bill?" she countered, yet she thought she knew what he meant. "Yes. Tonight. Watching you with Andy, I knew." She tried to say lightly, "I didn't know I wore my heart on my sleeve." "You wore it in your eyes, Carol." The knowledge seemed to hurt him. "I've met—the man, now. He's no longer a secret I wish you luck." No use to pretend any longer. She put her hand against his arm and said, "Thanks, Bill, I need it." "Not so much. Now that Linda's out." Carol looked at him, said quickly, "Did you'hear, too?" "Yes. I couldn't help it. It was a pretty good example of a gentleman giving a lady the gate!" A preoccupied Andy came down Monday morning. He seemed to have successfully forgotten the party and Carol's presence at it His attentions must have been only kindness, she told herself. Nothing more. The unbending o£ a boss to his secretary. He'd simply observed the spirit of the season. The kiss? Perhaps she'd strayed beneath a bit of mistletoe and he'd been obliged to follow through. Well, she wouldn't remind him of it, ever. He could depend on that. She knew her place. She would be all business. * « « 'J'HE most pressing matter nov/ that Christmas was over was the coming inventory. There were counting slips to order, section numbers to print and other supplies to get ready. Even sheets for a new ledger had to be bought. She would have to use last year's ledger to guide her in ordering the new one. She'd get it from the vault now. She went quickly up the three flights of stairs to the fourth floor. The inventory records were stacked year upon year just as hey had always been. She climbed to a small stool and •eached for the bulky volume on op. 1940. She grasped it with both hands, ifted it down. It was so heavy he had to end it up to hold it. There was a swish and a thump as something fell from it. Carol looked down. A large legal size envelope Jay at the foot of the stool. Gingerly, she stepped down, put the ledger on a table before she stooped to pick up the envelope, then turned it over, stared at its inscription. Her breath came in a startled gasp. She would recognize Mr. Dearborn's careful handwriting anywhere! He had written on the front of the envelope, "The Last Will and Testament of Andrew Dear-* born." The will! She had found the will hidden in the 1940 inventory ledger! It hadn't been misplaced. It hadn't been lost. Ever. Mr. Dearborn purposely had placed it here where they would find it at inven-* tory time but no sooner. He had been wise and just. She should have known he would leave Andy to reach his own decision uninfluenced by the provisions of the will. Even in death he had outthought them all! Dazedly, she examined the envelope. It was open at one end. She cupped it in her bands and peered inside. Aghast, she shook it futilely. The will was Bone! was ,. with the activities of other departments of the government. Dies locked up his evidence and his mvvestigators told the witnesses to hold it for a while. Time passed and nothing happenev A month or so ago, Dies called up th Department of State and asked ho\ about going ahead with the Jap in vestigation. The Nomura-Kurusu-Hu talks were in the offing then. Difc had to call off his hearings again On the Olher Hand- It is of cqurse impossible to gues- what might have happened if Dies ha held his hearings on Japanese act ivities in America. Everyone migh htve yawned that Martin was at i again, and gone on dreaming. On thi other hand, the hearing might hav< had the good fortune to wake'every body up. Some of the Dies investiga | tors' evidence is rather sensational- Japanese battle maps of the Pacific U. S. fleet formations supposed to bt- | secret, directions of every Jap in the ; United States, with his address and telephone number, handbooks of diagrams and photographs of every ship in the U. S. Navy. All of this was material obtained from Japanese resident on the west coast. In fairness, it should be made cleai that the Dies Committee had nothing at all on Japanese activities in Hawaii. Their investigators weren't permitted to investigate there. But now the appeasing the Japanese no longer does any good, perhaps a more realistic attitude of the situation is permissible. If some of the Navy gold stripers had their way, the whole bunch of Japanese-Americans would be rounded up and put in concentration camps.
