Mary A. Hallaren, director uf Women's Army Corps, and Col. Geraldine P. May, director of Women in the Air For'ce, offered to explain the various programs for women volunteering for these two services, But I'd like to quote a paragraph from a letter written by Maj.-Gen. T. J. Hanley, Jr., chief of Military Personnel Procurement Service, inviting me to the confer, ence. "The build-up male personnel for the two services is now being accomplished steadily each month through voluntary recruitment and Selective Service. The need for women in both the U. S. Army and the U. S. Air Force has increased tremendously since the outbreak of Korean hostilities. Now the time has come to acquaint the women of America with the career opportunities for needed and worthwhile service which are available in the Army^and in the Air Force." How about acquainting yourself with those facts, you June graduates ? Aside from serving your country, which is of first importance, f you go into one of the services you will be sharing with the. young inen of your age group a tremendously important experience. That is a privilege—and one that women have only recently earned. It is such a privilege that it is BY WILLIAMS hard to imagine the armed services Having any trouble getting all the young women they need into uniform. And remember this: over the long haul the great majority of women lead somewhat unexciting lives. Here is a real chance for an experience entirely different from anything you have known— or, in all likelihood, will have a chance to know again. At least consider what you can offer Uncle Sam and what he can offer you before you do any serious job-hunting. *'Meat pricM stavted atl this- the farmers on what they get for their KILLER'S PACE BY WUVS LONG COPYVGHT I9S BV WEA SEI^VICC flIIC XXVI r*LARA MAYHEW lived in a ^ south side duplex. Sonya let me in as soon as I rang. She had abandoned the slinky gown and was wearing one of her hostess's wraps. I greeted her and after some preliminary conversation I got around to some questions. I suggested that Barney Bidault's death might have been connected somehow with Frannie Martin's death. She let it out that Barney was interested in Frannie before he met Rose and then asked: "What about Larry Stone? He was interested in her too." I might have connected them myself.. She stamped out her ciga- rct and bit her lip. She said: "There's a confession floating around somewhere. Al Nanabarro must think'you have it—otherwise he wouldn't have come out in the open with his hoods to call on you last night" "A confession? As to who killed Barney Bidault?" She shot an impatient glance at me. "6on't be absurd. A confession about the death of Frannie Martin, of course. That's what Rod LaGrange was looking for when you walked in on him at the Bidault house!" I remembered the rifled desk. Sonya went on. "AJ Nanabarro told me that there was a confession about Frannie' death and that Barney Bidault bad it on him the night of his murder." I whistled. "And Al didn't say how he knew that?" "No. But he was posiUve that Rose had the confession. That's why I rigged up the trick with the gun to save her and get her out of jaiL* I scoffed: "You spin a fine yam, Sonya. Then why did you tip off Nick Ricardo as to what good pictures be oould take?" Sonya stiffened. AMD she g «t U|S slowly. "This is the second tiiae youVe accused me of double-crossing Star. Last night I let it go by because I didn't want to waste time trying to convince you of something 1 couldn't convince you of anyway! But now I'm telling you straight— I had nothing to do with those pictures!" I laughed wrily. "Rirardo's already told me it was you who called him!" • • • eONYA 'S face was eriaaoa now. ^ But her brow was furrowed in thought. She mused aloud: "Only I could have tipped bin off?" "That's right. Only you." I let her light her cigaret She took a couple of drags, tarow still furrowed and then stamped out the cigaret with an air of finality. "That bartender! The man wtM> brought the bottlel I remember now! While we were waiting we decided to run through the trick once more. We were talking about it. Then the bartender with the drinks rapped oo the door. I remember now that neither one d us had heard him come upf" By the time she had flnisbed talking, my moutb was banging open.

The phone rang. Sha answered it Alter she finished she told me: "Clara, calling from the Prater ofBce.
