RI ALTO MIDNIGHT PREVIEW Saturday Night 11:15 'Louisiana Purchase' . Sunday - Monday Chase's "Windswept" Is Reviewed "Windswept" is a novel of the coast of Maine, which Miss Chase knows so well «nd which Is the background for her earlier novels, "Mary Peters" and "Silas Crockett." But her new story is set on the coast of eastern Maine, that less known region of trackless, often barren land facing the open sea. • Windswept is a house on a high promontory miles from villages or towns. It is the home of the Marston family, built under tragic circumstances by John Marston, lived in and loved by his sons and daughters and by their children. And yet its long influences extend beyond the Marston family to others, to the Bohemians Jan and Anton, to Adriennp and Julie, into whose life it enters and whose thoughts it forms. "Windswept"^ thus becomes more an American novel than one only of Maine or even of Now England, for in it Miss Chase has portrayed the past and the present of America, the gifts of. her newcomers as well as the contributions of her older stock. "Windswept" is a way of life as well as an absorbing story of tragedy and conflict, pain and pleasure, sacrifice and fulfillment.

GILROY, I). D. Editor of Advance The story of the temptation of Jesus about which much mystery has been attached, is easy of comprehension if we approach it with sufficient directness. Remember the true humanity of Jesus and keep in mind the characteristic temptations which have as- sailed those who were capable of great -achievement and to whom was entrusted great power. We should never forget the divinity of Jesus was revealed in a truly human life. The writer of the Epistle to the Hebrews has stresse din many ways the fact that Jesus'took on Him our full humanity, and that He was "in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." If we do not grasp this fact of the true humanity of Jesus and that He was capable of being tempted, we are led into all manner of unreal and speculative interpretations of the story of the temptation. We have here three temptations recorded—temptations coming at the out set of the ministry of Jesus, and at a time following a period of fasting when Me was peculiarly subject to temptation. It would be a mistake to think of temptation in the life of Jesus as confined entirely to this early experience. As a matter of fact, we see the crucial temptation htat came at the very end of His earthly life, when He prayed earnestly.that the cup might pass and was tempted to renounce His mission, a temptation over which He trimuphed in the prayer, "Not my will, but thine be done." This early temptation, however, had a significance no temptation in an intervening period could have had. The decision in this hour of trial meant the complete acceptance of His mission and the vanquishing of the tempter. In almost every life there is some great temptation the over- TAMBAY GOLD By SAMUEL HOPKINS ADAMS Copyright, 1941. NBA Service Inc.

I must have gasped at the lie, lor she gave me a dirty look. We were both on our uppers. "I want you to put down two hundred of it for me, and the other hundred for you on the Balestier game." "You needn't be afraid of my not sticking, as long as you're here," he told her. "I'll put your money down. There ought to be nice odds after that Harstrom slump. And I'll win the bet lor you or break my damn neck." They dated up to dine together the next Friday at the Leverton Inn. I said I'd drive Juddy over and Angel could letch her back. Along about 5 o'clock we ran into Watrous Smith. He was jumpy. "Seen Angel anywhere?" he said. "Why? What's happened?" I said. "The darned fool tangled with Maurie Sears." "Has Angel been drinking?" Juddy asked, quick and anxious. "He hasn't. But Sears has. He's in the Rice Club now, liquoring up. He's got a gun. We've got to get Angel out of town." We went on the prowl for Angel and ran. into D.oc, Oliver. Juddy told him. "That's bad," he said. "Where is Sears?" "At the Rice Club. Know anything about it?" "You cculd take me in, couldn't you?" she said. "I'm sure I can handle him." Doc rubbed his chin and thought. "Let me try," lie said. "Be careful," I said. "He's got a gun." I don't know if he even heard me. "Do you know Carling's Restaurant?" he asked Juddy. _ "I do," she said. "Both of you go there. Get a bpolh near the door. I won't be long." He tipped his hat and left. "Did it occur to you, pal, that you're sending that bird on a risky errand?" I asked Juddy. "Why, no," she said. "Besides, I didn't send him." Well, I might have known it wouldn't occur to her. If she thought of Doc at all, it was just as something convenient or inconvenient. * * * TT was a long wait at Carling's, - 1 - all of five minutes that seemed like 20, before Doc joined us. "I've got his revolver," he said. "He's getting washed up." Maurie Sears came in. His lace was gray and stiff. He walked carefully. "Hello, Maurie." Juddy spoke as if nothing had happened. "I've ordered hot coJl'ee for you. Then you're going home." "He put his hands on me, damn him! I beg your pardon, Cousin. And yours, Mrs. Baumer." He gloomed at Juddy. "What is your interest in this?" "I don't want anything to happen. To either of you; either you or Angel." "Never mind me," Maurie Sears said. "I don't count. I know you're in love with him." Doc jumped in his seat. "Are you?" he said, like it was forced out of him. It came so sudden that Juddy and I just stared. I was startled; but Juddy's look was different. What possible concern was it ol his?—that's what her expression meant. . "That saves his life," Sears said. "I'd have killed him on sight. Now I can't. You may return my pistol, if you please," he said to Doc. "Certainly," Doc said, and handed it over. "You will excuse me now," Maurie Sears said. And by this- scnthat if he didn't make a drawing room bow to all three of us! "I am sorry to have caused any alarm." We went to the Inn. Angel didn't show up. The others had run him off. The news flew around town and didn't lose anything as it went. One version was that Maurie Sears had been mussed up by the football ace and then had his gun taken away from him by the college prof who was living over at Tambay. Another story was that Oliver had tricked the lawyer out of his gun, and Todd had then beaten him up, and that the girl over at Tambay was mixed up in it some way. That wouldn't be the end of it, folks said, and shook their heads. * * # T?VERY day in every way Sheriff Mowry was getting folksier and folksier. Having in mind Mamie Sears' tip, I didn't discourage him. He opened up by being worried about Loren Oliver. "Tell that star boarder of.yours he'd better watch out lor Lawyer Sears," he said. "Baloney!" I said. "Doc and Maurie are all right." "He took Sears' gun away from him, didn't he?" "It was all friendly." "Maybe it looked like it'to you. But something is liable to start Sears to mullin' and sullin' over it. Then watch out." "I guess the Doc can take care of himself," I told him. "You're overlookin' a fine proposition right here under your feet, or don't gold interest you?" "It might if I believed in it." "It's there. Look at Oliver. He knows." "He never said anything to me." "No. He's had his face buttoned up. They've told him over at the U. that if he gives out anything about his findings he'll get the boot. That's what makes him so slit-mouthed. I've got my lines of information." "Okay," I said. "I'm interested now. How do we get in?" "You get my little cousin to cut me in for a percentage. We'll get rid of Oliver. I'll handle the political end and see that you get yours." "What would you figure was a fair cut?" I asked him. "Twenty-five percent." "Is that all?" "I'll kick back 5 per cent to you. Look; I'll kick back 7Va per cent." He gave me the fishy eye then. "Think what it would be worth to you to keep out of trouble," he said. "Uh-huh," I said. "What kind of trouble?" "You never can tell, can you?" he said. "Put it up to your partner, ma'am. Make her see reason. You don't want any interruption to your trade, just when everything is goin' so good." Well, I didn't want to pester Juddy with it then. But I did pass on what he had said about Doc. There was a rumor around town that Sears had been drunk again and had threatened to shoot both Angel and Oliver. So Juddy and I decided to wise up the Doc. He looked puzzled. "Why, I saw Sears only yesterday," he said. "How was he?" Juddy said. "Perfectly pleasant. A little reserved perhaps. But that'j his way, isn't it?" "Loren Oliver," Juddy said. "Sometimes I suspect there's more to you than meets the eye." . . . (To Be Continued) "PAGETHTttl Our DailyBread (Continued From Page One) known the others existed.

Action Tests Now for some real action tests: Try the steering gear like this: Move steering wheel back and forth with front wheels straight ahead. More than 2'/2 inches of free movement (measured on the rim of the S. W.) means loose connections. Wheel bearings are loose or kingpins worn if you hear n clucking sound and feel slack when yo ushake a front wheel by the top with both hands. The clutch is worn unless a one- finger push on the clutch moves the pedal an inch. Another clutch test: Stall the engine instantly by engaging the clutch after you set the breaks, go into high gear and open the throttle. Otherwise, the clutch is slipping. Watch the Brakes Brakes are no good if the brake pedal touches the floor when you use all your force on it. Brakes need fixing if the car swerves sideways when you apply brakes hard at 20 m.p.h. Step on the starter and let the engine die about ten times in succession. Listen for grind that means broken teeth on the fly-wheel starter gear.

Wanna Fire Engine? Visit Hie Junk Yard BUCHANAN, N. Y— (IP)— If your town needs a fire truck, take a jaunt to the junk yard, is the advice of village residents. Until recently the community depended on nearby towns for firefighting equipment but it was agreed that war might mean more urgent need. A junk dealer offered his wares and the boys got together and assembled a fire truck from 50 old cars scattered around the junk heap.

The three temptations of Jesus have a symbolic aspect, and they correspond to the temptations which come to the greatest and strongest. The temptation in His hour of hunger to turn stones into bread was the temptation to use His power for material and personal ends. It is the temptation to which many great men have succumbed, and thei rfailure to overcome the temptation has meant the giving of their lives for self and Kelf-aggradizement instead of for God and humanity. The second temptation to cast Himself down from the pinnacle of the temple was the temptation to allow personal vanity to supplant the consecration of His powers to high and noble ends. It is a temptation to which many men who were capable of greatness have succumbed. The third temptation, possibly more intense than either of the other two, was the temptation to achieve world power and grandeur to the disregard of conscience or any higher way of life. One may say the devil did not have tch power to give to Jesus rule over the world, but that is to miss the reality of the temptation, for this temptation comes from the consciousness of power and the significance of the temptation is in some misleading voice of assurance that one can achieve earthly mastery. Is not this exactly tlie temptation that destroyed Napoleon and many others, of whose ability there could be no doubt, but who sold themselves to the lust of world domination only to achieve their own destruction? Jesus conquered these characteristic temptations. The sense of His divine mission triumphed over every earthly allurement. In the hour of His spiritual conquest, angels came and ministered unto Him. He went forth to His mission under the power of God, and it is the power of His conquest that gives men faith and strength to triumph over sin and its allurements. of the: government building belt. The idea is to help newcomers to Washington, particularly government employes,'get located. For sometime now it has employed 20 persons and it is locating homes for incoming flood at the rate of 100 a day. Nobody will deny that plenty of folk in Washington are working their heads off. However, one of the gov- ernemnt personnel -experts tells me that after as thorough a survey as it is possible to make, he estimates that one only->fjhird of the 200,000-odd government employes here are working more than the regulation 39-hour week. Washingtonians are betting that the shake-up in our present production set-up will be drastic and a good many are adding the prediction that at the end of the new shakedown, Milo Perkins will be way up there. Perkins is now director of the economic board of the administrator of surplus marketing in the Agriculture Department. The story always told about Perkin's coming to Washington is one of those things. In the early days of the new deal, he is supposed to have written several letters of suggestion to the then Secretary of Agriculture Henry A. Wallace. Wallace hired him sight unseen to help in putting over the big farm program. He has been at it ever since and always on the up and up. Washington is going through another case of transportation jitters, brought on principally by the curtailment o fear and tihe sales.
