"He was here yesterday." "What did he want?" "Family stuff," I said. "Believe it or not that ancestral mistake is worrying about your virtue." "What business is that of his?" "Pride of the House of Tambay find all that. He thinks the family on-nah is in .danger and that Angel Todd's the triple threat to the Maurie scutcheon." "If that's all he came for—" "It isn't. He's all fussed and flustered over Doc and the dig. gings, In his opinion, the Wandos are so much bull and Doc is really after gold." She sort of smiled. "Angel's good for what ails me," she said. It's a fact that since she had the grumps, he was the only one who could make her snap out of, it. The theory was that the two' of them were working up the Amerind Ethnology course. Well, maybe they were. Anything that kept her from brooding about Tambay Tree was all to the good. At that, I figured they must have put in some honest toil, for .when the Am-Eth test came on, Angel went through it on grease. Juddy was tickled pink. I doubt if she'd really expected him to lick the exam. I thought I'd have a little fun needling Prof. Loren Oliver when he came over for his lunch. * * * "ANGEL TODD passed his test in your subject, I hear," I said. "Todd's term standing has been below fifty. He rassed his test above ninety. What kind of a thissenthat does that make him?" That jarred me. "Are you telling me he pulled a phony?" "What do you think?" he said. "What art Jtoii goihg to do about It?" "Send In his paper to the Boftrd in regular course," "What happens then?" "Nothing, probably. It will be passed over. In the interests of the Higher Learning. We need a good right end." After he'd lett, Juddy came In ahd started to rack the dishes. "What has Loren Oliver told you about me?" she said after a minute. "Nothing,".! said. "Except a little about your folks." She stopped and thought some more. Her face was drawn. "All right," she said. "Come on. Let's go over and see him." Doc put down his hand trowel and came to the gate. She opened up on him. "Did you write Hendy Kent that I was here?" "Certainly not," h£ said, and pretty sharp, at that. "Who's Hendy Kent?" I said. "My husband," Juddy said. The only thing I could think of to say was, "Oh, yeah?"—which didn't seem to fully cover the ground. "I haven't seen Henderson Kent for several years, you know," Doc said to her. "I never knew him well in college. He was the gilded youth of the place until he flunked out. Did he continue to be a high- flyer?" "The highest," she said. "I tried to fly with him. It didn't work." "You knew all about this?" I said to Doc. "Not all. Part." "And never opened your face to me?" "I thought that if Mrs. Kent—" "Please!" Juddy said. "—wanted you to know she'd have told you." * * * UnpHE good old competition motive. He waved an emerald hoop in front of me and my theory was that I'd better jump through it before some other girl nosed me out. He was gay and good-looking and had all kinds of superficial charm and knew all the patter and the double talk and the cafe-society cliches. I thought that was life. But there wasn't anything behind it." The Doc shook his head. "It doesn't fit in with my picture of you," he told her. So he'd been carrying a picture of her in his mind, had he! I don't believe she noticed that, but you bet I did. She said: "It's simple. At that age and in the set I ran with, you think— 'Oh, well! what the hell! Why not give it a try? It doesn't have to last. And it won't change any- thing.' But it did. It changed me. And I don't like the change." "At least the venture should have been profitable," he said. She looked at him thoughtfully. "No, it wasn't even profitable." "Pardon," he said. "I assumed that money was the consideration." "So it was. Just another smart saleswoman; a little too smart. I took his money for being his wife. When I slopped being his wife, I couldn't very well take his money any longer." "Atta sport!" I said. "Then, you're not married to him any- longer?" "I wish I knew. He used to write me three or four times a week, drunk or sober, trying to get me back. Then, for a change, he'd talk Heno. I hope he went. Now he's threatening to come down here, but I don't suppose he will. He never does anything he says he's going to do." "It seems to have been a losing venture all around for you," Doc said. "Unless you count experience as gain." •The girl looked past him into nothing. "Not even that, in a way," she said, but more as if she was talking to herself. "The whole thing was a flop." I knew what she meant, but I don't think he got it. " 'Let men tremble to win the hand of woman, unless they win with it the utmost passion of her heart,'" he quoted. I made a note of that one. Good snappy quotations are a specialty of mine. "That sounds pretty outmoded, doesn't it?" he said. "Yet there may be something in it. even today." She came back at him with another. " 'Lucius, romantic love is on the rocks.' That's the 1940 version." "Did you come down here to run away from him?" I a^ked. "From everything." "To see life steadily and see it whole?" That was Doc. "Things are so muddled," Juddy said. "All I wanted was to be happy." She said it just as though it was the most reasonable wish in the world. "Is that all?" I said. "Page your fairy godmother. Did you ever happen to notice, pal, that the sun very seldom shines on both sides of you at once?" "Well, I've got all over expecting too much," she said. "Don't let yourself," Doc said to her, kind of quick and anxious. "When you give up expecting too much, you give up your youth." (To Be Continued) Vital Far East Fortress Edson in Washington Big Bill for Big Job: Civilian Defense WASHINGTON—The total cost oI0 the federal government's share of ... . ... - - amunition of any kind. Mayor La Gunrdia feels his OCD really has an unfortunate name. Because of the "defense" in the name, too many communities have written in to ask that half dozen or more anti-aircraft guns be sent along to them in a hurry. That isn't OCD's business, and right here is the place to say that the idea of turning over to the Army this civilian defense job or whatever it should be called is one of the sillest ideas ever to get born in Congress. Fortunately, the idea died young. It was largely inspired by a pique against the mayor and a desire to do anything that would get the OCD direction out of the hands of La Guardia nod Mrs. Roosevelt. But rule No. 1 for any war is thta the Army's job is to fight the enemy and that the civilian population must look out for itself. In that distinction is the simplest possible explanation of what civilian defense really is. All this ?237 million worth of OCD equipment will be bought at the expense of the federal government and given free to hie cities. Gas masks will be given to the 50 million people in the target area. The theory is that these are national expenditures which can't be saddled strictly on the utilitarian, and not on the ornamental side. The fire engines will not be shiny or red, but simply light trucks with a hose reel, a pump and the necessary ladders. Utilities Must Dig Down Not all the expense of civilian defense is to be bonre by the federal government. Public utilities have to supplement their emergency repair crews and the shovel brigades must be armed with tools adready manufactured. If OCD were to go ut on some fancy scale of buying new pickaxes and such, as some municipalities have advocated, it would take a considerable chunk of steel that should be going to other implements of war. All the educational work of getting this phase of local co-operation organized has been a propaganda effort that has kept the government printing presses on the hum for months. Forty five pamphlets, handbooks, instruction sheets and leaflets have been turned out. The average edition of these has been about two and a half million copies. Some of the individual instruction sheets have a 50-million run. OCD now has over 7000 local defense councils with about three and a half million volunteers registered or ^enroled or in training. When they get through, there wil be about ten million-six million men and four million women. That's the size of the job. Classification (Continued From Page One) civilian defense for the next year will be around $237 million if the job is done as Mayor La Gaurdia's boys and girls have figured it out. That $237 million figure hasn't been mentioned very loudly before. One of the bills being considered by Congress mem- tions S100 million as the original appropriation, but that will merely start things. It will permit the placing uf the first orders for the SO million gas masks and the so-far undisclosed numbers of fire engines, ambulances, fire extinguishers, tin hats and all the paraphernalia that a well-organized civilian defense should have. Idea of (he whole program is, fii-st to see that every city of 10,000 or more population in what you might call the target area of the United States has what it takes to care for the civilian population in case of an air raid bombing. This potential target area is roughly a strip 300 miles wide, extending inland from U. S. shores and borders. It may be deeper in some areas like the industrial northeast, and it may be shallower along the mid- continent Canadian border. If you have been bothered about what the Office of Civilian Defense has been doing since it was created last May, one of the little Uisks has been to compile the lists of all this civilian material, to inventory every town in the target area as to its firefighting equipment and emergency hurry-up wagons, then to compile the lists of additional firehose, decon- taminators and all such stuff that will make the area safe. The orders are all written. Army and Navy procurement offices have been used to determine where the contracts can be let, and they'll be placed just as soon as Congress gets around to granting the authority and appropiating the money. No Guns F«r OCD Not one cent of these appropriations fur civilian defense will go for antiaircraft guns or shooting irons or after spending Monday with Mrs. Tarllon's sister, Mrs. Dorsey McRae, Jr., and Mr. McRae. —O- Miss Helen Bowden is in St. Louis this week. -O- Mrs. F.

It blasts out roads and tunnels, clears stumps, defends -us against encroaching enemies. But misuse it at your own peril! It can blow you into kingdom-come. Your newspaper is useful, too. It brings you a daily record of what happens around you and an assortment of OPINIONS •—to go with its usually accurate FACTS. .But PLEASE do not MISUSE it. From.your newspaper you can learn how to divorce a wife, how to rob a bank. You can learn the opinions of every Communist and every brutal Nazi who makes news. You are told how crooked politicians operate and how to wreck yourself in an automobile. When you come to think of it, you realize that such news is brought you to forearm and forewarn you—so robbers, crooks and dictators CAN'T harm you. And you will admit that such news is absolutely necessary for free men who want to guard their freedom. Note well that your newspaper contains TWO KINDS of news, 1. FACT 2. OPINION The facts, good or bad, you cannot dodge. You may change them, as you change public officials, laws, customs, habits every day. But don't deny them or hide from them. That is dynamite. The opinions, right or wrong, are there because every man HAS Opinions. And, in AMERICA, every man has a RIGHT to his opinions. But don'r accept every opinion blindly. That is dynamite. Usually you will find OPINIONS on BOTH SIDES. Weigh them, think about them. You 'MUST. You are a citizen and a voter. What you and a thousand or a million others DECIDE will decide the fate of this nation. There's PLENTY of dynamite if you decide WRONGLY. And FACT and opinion aren't merely limited to the news and editorial columns. They are both found in the advertisements also. Just the same as you need to know what all candidates for office have to offer so you can choose between them you need to know what all merchants and manufacturers have to offer so you can decide how to spend your income to the best advantage. Dictators do not believe the people can be trusted with all the facts and all the opinions and a free right of choice. And the dictators are RIGHT— if they want to go on being dictators! Any American newspaper worthy of the name is dynamite—dangerous dynamite—for a would- be dictator; mighty useful dynamite for a man who wants to protect his freedom. In Germany, Italy, Russia, Japan, a government agency decides what the people shall read and hear. Not so in America. Do your part to preserve the American way of life. Read, each Tuesday ,n this space, the messages about your iiberly and how America's new*, papers help you defend it. Yovr letters of comment will be appreciated b/ the editor and by this committee—Newspaper Publishers Committee, 420 Lexington Avenu*, New York dry
