CAIIOI*—FIRKDI CHAPTER XIII QAROL, holding the empty envelope which should have continued Mr. Dearborn's will stood in the vault, puzzled beyonc expression. Someone must hove come to thnt ledger before her Someone hnd found the- will. But why leave the envelope? And, most important of all, why hadn't the will been turned over to the proper authorities? Swiftly her mind tabulated the people who had access to the vault. The head cashier, the girls in the credit office, Mr. Her rick, Andy, herself. Any one of them could have referred to the inventory record und found the will. Andy? What if he had found the will, read it, been angry at its contents and decided to suppress it or destroy it? It would be no more than human for him to do so. But it would be dishonorable. It would brand him as a cheat. She heard someone approaching and quickly shoved the envelope back into the book. She climbed to the stool and replaced the ledger on the shelf. She wouldn't take it now. She'd have to think. She'd iave to decide what to do with this disturbing new knowledge about thtf will. Back in her office, the phone interrupted her thoughts. She an- wered it. The switchboard girl said, You're wanted in Mr. Herrick's office, Carol." "I am? Why?" * "Don't know, but you'd better lurry, honey. He roared in my ear .ike a foghorn lion!" The . s ! rl . h . a *i't exaggerated. Shi- stepped back, her 'cheeks blanched. "I_i don't understand Mr. "Don't understand? I suppose you think .vou can get away with writing n check for $500!" She sank into a chair. So that w;is it. Her palms pressed tightly together were cold and damp "I—you see—" "Kive hundred dollars!" he yelled. "And the bank was crazy enough 1o cash it. Lucky I checked our balance myself!" "I—" she began again. Her own voice sounded strange. "To an old lady I fired because her hand shook so hard she couldn't sign a sales check!" Carol drew a long breath, said, 1—could explain—if you knew about—" CHE couldn't caught herself. No, she •n o tel1 him nb out the will. She had refused to reveal its contents to save Andy. She •ouldn'l reveal them now to save lerself. His small eyes narrowed. "I ought to throw you in jail. It if veren't for the unfavorable pub- icity, I'd send you up for embezzlement!" Carol's lips trembled, "I was— orry for her," she stammered. His mouth curled. "I suppose he promised you a cut?" She wanted to slap his bulky ace. She went weak with anger "I knew it was what Mr. Dear-' orn would have done," she re- orted miserably. "Mr. Dearborn?" He pushed his ig head forward and glared at er. "Mr. Dearborn is dead. His on has turned the management f the store over to me and I'm amn well going to manage it!" She stared at him numbly. "You'll never do it again." He it the words in two. "You're red. Fired! Now get out! Toay!" She opened her lips to gasp ose from her chair. "Don't stand there and look at ie. Can't you understand Eng- sh? You're fired." Fired! She made her way blindly back her office. Andy was gone. For lat she was thankful. She didn't 'ant to face him now. He had taken a stand when he efused the money to Miss Fanny e had backed up Mr. Herrick in ills dismissal. He wouldn't be xkely to reverse Mr. He*i-ick in lis. must know that Carol's presence was a constant threat to that. » * * gHE began to gather up her personal belongings. A box of powder, her little mirror, the half- used package of cleansing tissue, her fountain pen, a calendar she liked. She could carry everything except the smalt file case Mr. Dearborn had given her for personal memoranda. She would havo to come back for it. She could get another job in time. It wasn't that. But, out ot the store, she could no longer stand between Mr. Herrick and the people. She would fail Mr. Dearborn. She would fail Andy, too. Bill came that evening as soon as he heard the news. He was irate, urged her to let him go to Andy for her. He was loyal enough to believe that whatever she had done was for the good of the business. She refused to let him interfere. No, Bill. It's something Andy would never understand. You wouldn't let me intercede for you. You can't do it for me." "Then you and Mary are going out to dinner with me," he said nrmly. "You can't sit here and mope." "Thanks, Bill." She grasped his hand afiectionately. "I'm not up to it. You take Mary." "But Carol—" He looked at Mary and Carol saw anticipation in both faces. They couldn't hide their love any longer. She had known since the night of the party. Mary had been unable to conceal it. Now she read it in Bill's eyes, too. She was glad. Bill was genuine and deserved someone like Mary. Someone who really loved him' "Nice going, Bill," she said gently. He searched her eyes before ht answered. "Perfect," he said. They went ofl happily together. Carol tried to read a magazine but too much had happened that day to let her mind find peace. Her thoughts were torn between the memory of Mr. Herrick's angry words and the image of an envelope which could have settled everything had it not been empty! Reluctantly, she answered the insistent ringing of her doorbell. She didn't want to see anyone. She wanted to be alone to think. She hadn't expected to open tha door to Andy Dearborn!

Words-pictures-symbofs, the things we oil use to convey ideas from one mind to another mind. They are tools-trie tools of civilized men but they can be sharp or blunt; welf used or misused. Warning to All America You walk the paths of freedom. They are glorious paths, but they are beset by dangers. ......_ Words-pictures-symbols can poison you, can hurt you. Your newspaper brings you, through words,, pictures and symbols, two kinds of news: 1. FACTS 2. OPINIONS Now, the very nature of news in a free country demands that you have both the GOOD and the BAD news. You want the FACTS, the harsh, disheartening facts and the gentle' reassuring ones. You want the opinions of all sorts of men, good and bad. ' 6 Armed with these facts and opinions you are able to perform the responsibilities of citizenship. If yo0 accept and support the good, reject and cast out the bad, you are armed to destroy the rattlesnakes along the paths of freedom. Mere refusal to see or hear won't help you. It is the INFORMED man* not the IGNORANT one, who stays free. tvery day your newspaper brings- you hundreds or thousands of vital FACTS— the market prices, births, deaths, marriages, fires, meetings, happenings-the list is very long, and it is amazingly accurate and complete. tvery day your newspaper brings you many opinions—ita own editors' opinions, speakers', columnists'- even the weather man's opinion of tomorrow's climate. tvery day, in newspaper advertisements, merchants onBOTH SIDES OF THE STREET bring you the facts and opinions about the goods and services they hope you will want from them. * * * The great thing about America and American newspapers is YOUR RIGHT TO CHOOSE what you will believe and whose urgings you will accept-whose products you will buy, whose policies you will follow. This very right is what freedom is-the liberty of every American to make up his own mind, In Qermany, Italy, Ry^ip, Japan, a government Agency decides what the people, shall read and hear. Not so i n Americq. Do your part to pr e s erye the Ame rican w »y of life. the t ^«i* * i^SS -,***- «-Vif i ,iy '
