The B'ins were inclined to make a point of the fact that Dr. Paasikivi's plans called for a trip by train rather than plane. Airplanes were used by representatives of Estonia, Lativa and Lithuania in their journeys to and from Moscow after they were invited by the Soviet Union for conferences which resulted in Russia winning military and trade concessions. Traveling by train, the Finnish party probably would not arrive before Wednesday Dr. Paasikivi was expected to return the same way. The Fins went ahead with their border fortications. Finland last week called up additional reservists for "extraordinary services to strengthen the national neutrality." The trade deleaves at Helsinki were seeking a way to circumvent war dangers to commerce in the Baltic and North seas and to maintain trade as close as possible to the normal level. Lieutenant Colonel Dryssen, the Swedish delegate, said that "adoption of new tarde routes offers considerable difficulty since it obviously is harder to transport big shipments by rail than by boat, and that is why the Northern nations must get together to solve the common problem." , Germans Being Moved In Northerns disturbed by the Soviet penetration into the Baltic states were worried further by a dispatch reporting that Germany was wirking to re- partriate Germans from Latvia and Estonia. One interpretation placed on that action by the Finnish press was that Berlin expected strong ideological penetration by Russia in at least Estonia and Latvia, as well as political and military. One paper reported that about 75 per cent of the Germans in Estonia were expected to return to the Reich. men up to 40 years old going first. The paper said these probably would be conscripted for the German army. Observers here expected no early conclusion of the Russian-Finnish conversations. Finnish officials in- -"isted Russia made no demands but had only extended an invitation to exchange opinions about political and economic problems, which were not named Foreign Minister Erkko said the Finns "could not but say yes."

WPA to Continue, Says Harrington National A cl m i n istrator Speaks at Dedication in Arkansas SHOP—COMPARE LITTLE ROCK-The WPA will be continued indefinitely. Col. F. C. Harrington, national administrator, indicated here Monday. The statement was made by inference when, speaking at the dedication progra'm at the new $300,000 state School for the Blind, he said: "This work (WPA) must go on. We I have a long pull ahead. But with this J nation's resources, I am sure we can solve the problem of unemployment." Colonel Harrington, speaking through an amplifier system to several thousand persons who crowded the lawn of the administration building, gave credit for the works program to President Roosevelt. He commended the state for "seizing the opportunity" presented by WPA in erecting the Blind School plant and 622 other school buildings since its inception. "WPA is not perfect yet," he said as dark clouds gathered and the first inkling of thunder rumbled ominously "But we certainly have done something. And we can't quit now." Hundreds of automobiles filed into a newly built road and found parking space an hour before the Little Rock High School band began playing at 2 p. m. Scats were placed on the Inwn in a semi-circle. Blind children and many blind adults were provided chairs. The microphone was nlaced on the front porch of the building. Behind it were seated Colonel Harrington, Governor and Mrs. Bailey, members of the school Board of Control, state WPA Administrator Floyd Sharp and other officials. Miss Helen Keller, the celebrated blind and deaf educator in whose honor many spectators appeared, was absent. She remained in her room at the Albert Pike hotel until a few minutes before she was scheduled to speak at 3:35. "Aren't you afraid you'll get seasick on your honeymoon voyage to the West Indies?" "Oh. no; they say love prevents seasickness." "Yes.

Chnse, present head of the Chase colony here, built a church. The Methodists used it in the mornings and the Freewill Baptists in the afternoons. About 187>1 the two congregations disagreed und built separate churches. \ The town moved its offices to the former church. A little later .the Maine Central railroad came in and the town fathers had to move the building, taking the occasion to dig « basement over which to place it. About IUOO the late Dr. G. H. Morrison gave the town a clock, so the lathers built a tower for the town hall in which to putithe time-piece. Today they arc busy installing indirect lighting fixtures, painting the woodwork, considering retinishing the floor and hoping to be able to install modern sanitation. The latest improvement completed is a group of four murals—representing the seasons—clone by Edgar Britton, N'ebruska-born University of Iowa graduate who Jives in Chicago, and t-hepard Vogelgesang of Wbiteficld and Chicago. Money for the murals was raised at a dunce for which a hillbilly orchestra played music.

Dread that Dim niny not want her flllN her heart. In her one perfect achievement enough to make un for all she did not dof CHAPTER XXXI TT was Thursday when Marian alighted from the train in Portland, A red-cap carried her bag, another offered to carry the baby. She shook her head, holding tight to the round-eyed infant. It was all so strange. Arriving in the city from which Dan had mailed his brief letters was so important a step in her plans that it left her- breathless. She had been told of a quiet, inexpensive hotel, the St. Andrews, and she stepped into a cab. Once cabs had been daily necessities, now they were luxuries. She sat back as they drove through the wide, clean streets, her eyes darting to the hurrying throng on the sidewalks. The swing of broad shoulders, the tilt of a man's hat, brought her heart to her throat. She might see Dan—she might. It was not part of her plan to see Dan—not yet, Along Broadway, finally out of the business district and up a slight incline. At the top stood the St. Andrews Hotel. It had a landscaped garden and wide, inviting porch. The cab driver carried her bag into a charming lobby. It was homey, it greeted her with warmth. The clerk was cordial. Marian made arrangements for a maid who would stay with the baby. She had much to do in the few days before Sunday. There was not a moment to be wasted. Furnished apartments—she knew nothing of addresses. Consulting the clerk, she made a list and set forth. Several of the addresses were within walking distance of the hotel and she hurried along, conscious of the lightness of the air, feeling no weariness. The first apartment was too expensive, the second loo dark. "Yamhill," she read from her list. '-That's a funny name for a street. Sounds like a potato." Passing an intersection, she saw "Salmon" on the street sign and . laughed again. Turning off Broad! way at Yamhill, she walked west, looking for house numbers. Expecting to find a brick building, the Chicago type of apartment, she was puzzled to find the number t;he sought on a large frame house. , There was a lawn with a rose ' hedge and holly trees. It appealed I to her instantly. A yard where Glad could play, roses in the spring. She rang the bell. M^-iun rented the apartment. It was on the second floor of the old house. A living room, kitchen, two bedrooms, one large and one tiny, a shining new bath. It was furnished comfortably, the entire house had a home-like atmosphere, the landlady was comfortably stout. After buying supplies, Marian went for the baby. She had a satisfied feeling that they had come home. * * * CATURDAY morning Marian ° called Dan's hotel. Dan had said that he was settled in a pleasant room in the Heathman hotel. She knew ho would not bo there at that hour, had planned to leave her telephone number. The hotel clerk told her where she might reach Mr. Harkness — his office. Dan with an office—? Mouth dry, hands shaking, Marian called Dan's office. When he answered, she said, "This is Marian, Dan." "Marian—" There was joy and almost fearful disbelief in the exclamation. When he spoke again his voice was cool, controlled. "Where arc you, Marian?" She gave him the address. "Have you plans for tomorrow, Dan?" "I expected to spend the day alone." "Then—will you have dinner with me?" Would he say that he would come right then? He did not. He said, "I shall be delighted. What time?" He might have boon any man accepting any woman's invitation. "One o'clock?" "I'll be there." * * # 'T'HE next morning was a fluUjr of preparation. Removing cuery toy and tiny garment from the living room, Marian put the baby to bed at 12. Glad was not to be used as a lever. Possibly, but only as a last resort. She roasted a small turkey, cooked Dan's favorite vegetables, and made a mince pie. At 15 minutes before one she was waiting for him, feminine and desirable, in a simple frock, hair a dark swirl, eyes wide and fathomless. He knocked and Marian opened the door. She stood looking at him. Her lips smiled, her eyes smiled, she held out both hands. "Dan—" He took her hands. "It's good to see you Marian—good." His voice was husky, repressed. He did not kiss her. They talked a few minutes, skimming the surface, then she served the dinner, the table set in an old-fashioned bay window. Dan's eyes kept straying to her vivid face, puzzled. . "You've changed. . Glad." he said. He'd called her Glad. Such a little thing, but so much. Her heart sang. "I'm going to be honest with you, Dan," she said seriously. "Listen to me. When I've finished you shall say how it will be with us. When you went away I learned how very much I loved you." Tears misted her eyes and he leaned across the table to lay his hands over hers. That made it easier. "I quit my job the last of January. I've been learning to be a home-maker und—and I've lived on your money, Dan." "I didn't know—I should have sent more." "It was fun, making ends meet. Oh, Dan, I've tried so hard to make myself worthy of you. Will you—can you—give me another chance?" He rose, drawing her into his arms. "Darling — darling—," he whispered. He kissed her lips and the little hollow in her throat. * * * TT was an hour later, they were sitting in one- big chair as they had so often done, that Dan told her about his work. "I've found myself, Glad, I'm branch manager for the Coast. You won't have to scrimp and drudge." "But I want to—for you." ,Hc kissed her lingcringly. "I have a nice salary, my bonus will be several thousand this year—." Marian got quickly to her feet. Her checks were crimson, she spoke breathlessly. "I have a bonus for you, Dan. It's the bonus I earned." She ran to the bedroom. The baby looked up at her, sleepy- eyed. Marian caught her up and went to the door. A beautiful, radiant woman and her child. "Do you like her, Dan? She's yours—and mine." He sprang to his feet. In three long strides he crossed the room. "You—you didn't buy her—" Marian laughed. "No, I didn't buy her. Look at your own red hair on her funny little head and be sure. I knew about her when you went away." Gently, he took them both in his arms. "Oh, my dear—my dear—." Later, Dan was silling in the big chair, holding the baby carefully, Marian knelt at his knee. She said, "Do you know what I tell her every day? I say, 'Woman, when you grow up and get married, let your husband take care of you. If the going gets tough, you sit tight. He'll see you through.' Thai's what I tell her every day, Dan." Dan leaned forward, putting his big arm around her. "I'm a lucky guy," he murmured. "Two Glads to be glad about."
