CHAPTER X A PIN dropping to the floor '*• would have .sounded like an > avalanche when Joan made her announcement. Marianne opened her mouth, just once, to protest, but Joan silenced her with a motion. "Thanks very much," she began simply. "It would have been nice even to be in the running, but 1 honestly think Kay deserves the I'hance before 1 do." Joan looked directly at Kay as she spoke. "After all, Kay is a Junior and it's something she always wanted. 1 just wouldn't feel right if I deprived her of (hat chance. "And with Hie way politics are run on this campus ' it doesn't really make much difference who the candidate is if she gels the right support. And Kay will get the right support. "There's another reason, too," Joan, continued. "I think I'd be "more valuable in felting .support for someone else than I would for myself." * * * 1OAN was sprawled on her bed •* going over some economics notes when Kay entered the rooty. "Hi," Joan greeted. "Grab yourself a seat." Kay came over and sat down on the bed. "Thanks a lot," she said. 4'It did mean a great dual to me, Mind—well, you surprised a lot of us." Joan threw back her head and laughed. "Not as much as I surprised myself. But forget it. And count me in any anything there is to be done. Y'know, what I said about supporting you still coes." Kay cocked her head to one side nnd smiled. "Say—do you think perhaps some of us have been ^vrong about you?" ^ Joan looked down at her notes. "It's barely possible," she replied. * » * ITEITH called the next day. Tech had an open date that week and the Gammas were having a hayride Friday night. How did it strike her? It struck her very much. There wasn't much she hadn't done nor places she hadn't been, but Joan « hnson had never gone on a hay- le. "Not that I mind," she told him, "but why the short notice?" i "Just one of those things. H started out with just a half dozen of the boys deciding (jn the idea. Sounded so good we decided lo make a fraternity all'air out of it. Probably wind up having cider and doughnuts at Pine Hidge Inn." That would be fun, too, she figured, as she hung up. Next problem was what lo wear. Nol so much a problem at that. Her olive green slacks and beige cardigan would bo just the thing. Dr. EJbeii's letiure on Croatian immigration wasn't particularly appealing lo Joan next day. Keith on her right was in a semi-doze, running his pent 1 .', through his hair and staring out the window. She nudged Dan on her left. "Hoy, sour-puss—got a date for Ihe hayride?" she whispered. "And if so, how'd you manage il?" He looked up. "Not yet," he hissed. "Know any dame who'd /ike (o spend a miserable evening?" She poked Keith. "Our litlle ray of sunshine doesn't have a date for Friday night. What do we do about it?" Keith closed one eye. "Aw, he can sit up front with the driver." "Haw," she chuckled softly. When she looked around "she noticed it was very quiet. Dr. Elbert had stopped talking and was looking straight down at her. "Perhaps, young lady," he began, sarcastically, "perhaps you would like to deliver this lecture?" She felt herself growing red. Then from her immediate loft there came a loud, explosive: "Haw!" There was near-murder in the look she turned on Dan Webber as Dr. Elbert resumed his lecture. "Worm," she muttered. Dan grinned. "Yeah, and look at 'im turn." * * * TTEITH phoned just after dinner Thursday night and said he was coming over for a few minutes. She was going to the library so he drove her over, "Something's up," she guessed. ''Let's hear it." "Something's up is right," he repeated mournfully. "I can't go on that hayride tomorrow night." "What's the matter?" she asked, .ifter the first twinge of disappointment had worn off. "It's like this—Coach wants to .ake advantage of this open dale and do a little scouting. So he's .aking Barney Hughes, Johnny While, and myself to see Pitt In a night game tomorrow. "We've had an assistant coach scouting them all season, but Ihe Old Man wants to get in a few personal touches." "But why should he need all three of you?" "Well, Barnpy's captain, of course. Johnny being quarterback, Siocum wants him to check into- Pill's defense setups so's he can get a line on what sluft to use against them. And me—I clunno exactly why he wants me along—but he wants me, and Old Man Siocum isn't the kind of gent that can be talked out of anything." * * * npHEY parked in the library •*• drive for a while. "And how I was looking forward to that hayridp," she said glumly. "Look," he said, taking her hand. "I don't want to disappoint you, and I've got an idea that I think will work out swell. I'll c:ill you about 11 tonight. You ought to be home by then." He let her out and drove back to the Gammh house. He ran upstairs three at a time, barged into his room and confronted a surprised Dan Webber. "Take it easy," Dan said. "You camo in there like a 03 reverse to the weak side." "Yeah man, and I've got to get myself a first down." He straddled a chair. "Daniel, my boy, you were one of the less fortunate souls who didn't bother to gel a dale for. the hayride tomorrow night, weren't you?" "Go 'head, brainstorm, go 'head." "Well, I've got a date for you." "You mean maybe you have a date for mo. Who is it—your dear cousin Tillie from Pumpkin Hollow?" Keith grinnec". "Nope—it's Joan Johnson." Dan's feet were on his desk. They came down with a crash. "Who?" he howled. "Did I hear correctly?" "You did," Keith said calmly. He explained the situation, but Dan was dubious. "In the first place I wouldn't take that dame lo a beetle rassle. In the second place she probably wouldn't go with me." Keith hit him on (he head with a pillow. "Okay—okay, so you don't like her too much. But this is one time you're gonna make a sacrifice. And don't worry about her refusing. I'll take care of that part. C'mon—howzabout?" Dan grinned. "On second thought," he said, "why not?" (To Be The "silliimctcv" streamline ships its well as waisviine. If necessary, this may be done with the aid nt n chiiir. Insert at right shows the "waspwaistcr" This exercise stretches inches off the waistline. II mnv l>c done \vifh mi imaginary wheel. By AIJC/l HART NEA Service Staff Writer While corset designers have been busily creating foundation garments lo make the waisllini' appear much .smaller than it actually is, beauty ex- perls have been just as busy creating exorcises to make the waistlin so small that new corets will not have to be laced so tighlly as to interfere with normal breathing. In other words, salons of body sculpture and various health farms advise us to achieve a natural figure which will conform to the new Mainboekher silhouette. And then, if we like, to dramatize further our new, but natural, figure by wearing one of the widely-touted. laced corsets. They are opposed to lacing a thick waistline in- lo a honed corset. Slim down your waistline first, is their idea, then wear ;i corset only if you want tp. To slenderize Iho waistline, hero are some exorcises recommended by a well known export: "Do the 'foundation' exercise first, ho advises. "Lie flat on your back with hands (palms down) at sides. Keeping knees rigid, slowly raise legs until they are perpendicular to your body. Loker just as slowly. Repeal ten times." After the "foundation" exercises, repeat this routine ten times. If you do not have a wheel which you cvm nail lo the wall of your garage or playroom, plant imaginary wheel on the wall and, protending to Srap-s the spokes with outstretched arms, roll the- body to the left until you can feel a decided pull through the midriff.

Bruce Catton Says: Amendments Bring Showdown on Arms Repeal By BRUCE CATTON NEA Washington Correspondent j WASHINGTON—The real showdown on the arms embargo fight is apt to come when amendments to the administration bill are offered on the floor of the Senate. Tlie administration leaders claim go. as of today. But the bill is compli- while yet—at least half n '.O7.en amend solid 'majority for repeal of the embar- mcnts to various provisions will com cated, and after all the general debate up. is over—which won't be for a little A number of senators who are fo Melodramatic Mid-air Rescue Second and Third (Continued from Page One) he thrid-string team. First downs were Hope 22. Nash- •illc 10. Hope attempted 17 pass's, completed nine., four for touch- lowns. Nashville attempted nine, com- ileted three and had two intercept- el. Hope had one pass intercepted. lope drew 05 yards in penalties to 0 for Nashville. Substitutes Show Well A number of the second—siring ;quad played heads-up football, but he outstanding performer was Loy Ward at end. Ward was on the receiv- ng end of several passes and played Brilliantly on the defense charging hrough time after time to throw Nashi)!e ball carriers for long losses. J. D. Jones, 200-pound sophmore end. tlso showed up well, as did Sonny Murphy, 138-pound quarterback, who ore through the line and around ines for consistent gains. Beckworfh lit the line with force as did Phil Keilb. Jimmy Simms, the other back ml usually a spectacular performer. was used as a decoy and wasn't given chance to carry the ball. In guards May and Stuart, Coach iammons has a pair of scrappers com- ng on. Snkyer, Conway, Kesner and Carleson played the tackles well. Wiliam Taylor at center showed much mprovement. The Nashville squad was no match lor the regulars who will get plenty :>f action in the two coming games with Camden and Blytheville. Much will depend upon the blocking and charging of the big Hope line in these two contests. So Jar this season the Bobcat line lias been extended only twice—the -laynesville and El Dorado games— where they outcharged and out-played Iheir opponents. Against El Dora- Jo, the line was so stout that th^e Wildcats made only 57 yards on the ground. Camden is reported to have a big line and Blytheville the biggest in the slate with a 200-pound average from end lo end. The eyes of spectators will be on line-men in Ihese two battles. Captain Kiddo 4*.,(ML V-JSl Panthers. A crowd of more than 3,000 fans including 1,000. Zebra backers who rode a special train to Camden, saw the same. After Camden fumbled the opening kick-off the Panthers held Pine Bluff at the 20-yard line. Then Robert Hutson intercepted a long pass on the 50 and relumed it to the 33 but the Panthers held again. Smith punted out on Ihc Pine Bluff W and the Zohras scored, Robert Hul-son racing six yards to cross the goal. Lofuvich kicked goal.

One item which is sure to bring fireworks is the 90-day credit provision of the cash-and-carry part of the measure. Another is the stringent set of restrictions which the bill puts on American shipping. Much may depend on the degree to which the administration is willing to comprdmise >on such points as these It will undoubtedly lose some votes which it is now counting on unless such provisions are changed, Incidentally, each amendment that is offeree will be accompanied by a good deal o: debate—which means that a final vote on the bill as a whole is still a considerable distance away. One Optimist In Europe The impression that peace in Europe might be nearer than European news dispatches indicate continues here. A few days ago a New Yprk brokerage house wired its branch offices to the effect that i( understood that Maj, L. L. B. An gas (the English economist, now living in New York, whose "The Coming American Boom" made such a flurry at the dawn of the New Dea'l) 'was advising his clients to unload their "war babies." This wire was snown to Senator Gerald Nye, who immediately wired Major Angas asking him if he cared to confirm or deny the report. Major Angas wired back: "Yes I expect armistice followed by peace." Both administration and isolationisl groups have just begun . intensive proselyting campaigns among members of the House of Representatives. Focus of attention so far has been on the Senate; yet any bill which passes the 'Senate 'must also pass the House, and it recently occurred to both sides that some missionary work ought to be done there. After all, last spring the .House refused—by a margin of 41 votes—to repeal the embargo. Claim 190 in House Support Embargo One up-to-date isolationist report is that 335 members of the House have thus far given definite stalements of their position on the measure, and that 190 of these have stated that they intended to vote to uphold the embargo. A California congressman reports that so far he has not found any man who voted for trje eVnbargo last spring who intends to vote for repeal this fall. Another westerner contradicts this and says that he personally knows of three such swilches in his own part of the country. All of which simply means that the situation in the House still is not clear, and that both sides are putting on strong drives there. One of the most prominent isolationist senators had a poll taken in a section of his state a few days ago on the neutrality issue. He used the most accurate methods he knows of, which have proven reliable in past political campaigns. The result, he said, was a vote of about 3',-> to 2 ! 2 in favor of keeping the embargo—out of approx- imalely COCO people polled. The odd part is that this ibes neither with his mail from that section—which lias been running around five to one for keeping the embargo—not with the Gallup poll, which has been running in favor of repeal. Now he's trying to figure which of the three indicators is most nearly right. A.S if there weren't enough excitement in the world, they've fone and discovered pirates in hiladelphia!

Like a lurid poster advertising an old-time "Ten, Twent, Thirl" melodrama is this scene showing the thrilling mid-air rescue of a .stage-struck girl who had threatened to jump from a New York hotel window. Blonde Helen Kawalek, 16, ran away from her Bayonne, N. J., home to seek stage success in New York. Discouraged by failure, she stood on the second-story window ledge, declared she would leap. Fireman Richard Oliver tied a rope about him, jumped from the third floor window, grabbed her off the ledge and held her until both were lowered to the safety net held by his comrades. The girl was taken to a hospital for observation. BARBS Berlin seeks from Russia an increased supply of oil.
