NBA Service Inc. Friday - Saturday Double Feature PUBLIC ENEMIES — and — "BORDER VIGILANTES rr TWO DEFENDERS CHAPTER XXVIII TT was then that Juddy laughed out loud. It was a queer spot for a laugh. Or was it? There was something sort of triumphant about that laugh. Mntirio Scars went crazy. "Good God! Juddy!" he yelled. His voice dropped to a snarl. "You dirty coward! You've got her there to save you hide." "That's a lie, Maurie Sears," I said. "Mom, loo!" Ho sort of gasped. But his thought was all for my pal. "You can't stay there," lie said, like a man praying. "You can't . . . my sweet. . . . Oliver, if you're a man you'll give her to me." Juddy said, "He can't. I won't go." Maurie whirled around to face the mob. It was inching 1 forward. "Men, there arc two ladies in here." "Let 'em get out. Nobody wants to harm the gals." Doc's voice snapped. "Keep back, there. No further!" "You can't hold them," Maurie warned him.. I said in Doc's ear, "Ask 'em for 10 minutes to confer on it." He passed it to Maurie, and Maurie put it to the crowd and reported back that they'd stand for five minutes; no more. Back in the darkness a voice was shouting, "Where's those fatwood torches?" I touched Old Swoby on the shoulder. "Take your coat and pants off," I told him. I shucked my clothes and got him into them. There was some hay in the corner to fill out the proper curves. Lucky I had on the old, floppy bonnet I usually wore around the camp. That would pretty well hide his face. I made him walk across the floor a couple of times to get the right gait. Then I called Dolf. He figured to be the best part of the disguise, being a famous figure in the locality, and everybody knowing he was my watchdog. While I was walking Swoby I outlined what ho had to do and prayed Goc he could do it. "It's simple," I said. "The only question is whether you've got the guts to carry it through." "Then I go," he said. "I'm afraid; yes. But I go." "Atta boy!" I patted his shoulder. "Wait till I speak my lines then walk out there like you wa in a hurry but not too much of a hurry. Beat it for the woods." * * * T OPENED the door and stuck out •*• my head with the bonnet on it <s OPENS FRIDAY All from Regular Stock $10 VALUES TO $15 Boxy, Swagger Styles! Zip-in Lining Coats!

"It's Mom Baumcrl In person," 'Howdy, Mom." "Make mine a pork barbecue with cawfee." "Say it, Mom." "I suppose you birds are think* ng it's you that are getting me out of here. You couldn't get me >ut with a cable; I'd see you in icll first. But—well—you all <now my little skunk. I gave a yank on the leash and Dolf stuck lis nose out. "I reckon I'd better ake him out, as he's In a hurry. O. K. by you?" "Sure, Mom!" By the laugh I got I knew it was going all right. 'You get your big dogs out of the way." Those bloodhounds didn't fit into myplan at all. That struck them as good sense. They shut the hounds in the woodshed. I ducked back, handed the leash io Old Swoby, jammed the bonnet down over his ears, and gave him a shove. I figured that nobody in that bunch was going to interfere with a skunk who was in a hurry. Old Swoby was good. He waved his hand and scuttled for the nearest thicket. As he left the crowd heard the voice under the bonnet say, "Thanks, gents. Back in five minutes." Thai's what they thought they heard. Juddy and Doc nearly threw a fit. I never told 'em that I'd done a vaudeville turn as a ventriloquist when I was on the stage. It looked like everything was going to be O. K. Old Swoby would have time to reach the woods. The bloodhounds wouldn't be after him this time. But wasn't too easy in the old mine when I tried to figure what would happen when they found the game had slipped them. The moon backed into a cloud. I got the impression of a lot ol movement going on outside. The firing started up again. I let off the old pump-gun out the back window, by the way of warning From what I could make out Maurie Sears was doing his bes: to hold them. He called: "Mom! Juddy! Are you coming out?" Juddy didn't answer. Maurie was hurrying up and down, now trying to be everywhere at once There were scattering shots again I couldn't see him now. Somebody yelled, "My God! They've got Sears!" "Who did it?" "One of those rats in there." * * * '"PHE low mutter went through the crowd and got deeper anc savager, like nothing human. I went down my spine like dripping ce. I knew then it was life-and- eath now for Doc anyway, if they nought he fired the shot. A bunch of them came out of over and carried something toward the house. Doc opened the loor enough for a look-see. Nobody was coming our way. Doc ;aid, "Juddy!" She went over to him. "This may seem a queer time to say it. But I don't want you to ':hink that I cheated you." She put out her hands to him. 'Oh, Loren!" she said. Ho held out his arms. She came nto them as if she belonged there. But it wasn't what she expected. He swung her out through the door and barred it behind her. She turned and beat at the heavy ogs like a crazy thing until some young chaps ran up and dragged icr away. They looked to me like Wellivcr boys. O. K. We'd have some friends in the crowd when it came to a showdown. "I'd do the same to you if I were big enough," he said. Everything was so quiet outside we could hear them calling from bush to bush. "Is he dead?" "As good as. They got him through the lungs." ^Td hate to be the guy that did "That rat Oliver done it. I seen him draw a bead through the window." That was Bixie Groff. "Get the falwood. We'll burn him out and string him up." "Come on, fellas." That was Bixie again. "What the hell we doodlin' around for? Let's get him." "Shoot that guy, Doc," I said. "I'm holding my shots," he said. He kind of laughed. "Come over here and give me a kiss, Mom, and then get out of here. You're no use to me now." What I answered him didn't take much time. "Don't be vulgar, Mom," he said and laughed again. The torches began coming then, curving through the air and landing on all sides, but most of them short. One rolled under my window and I doused it with a pail o£ water. Another one, near the corner, I couldn't reach. Smoke began to come up. Those brave, bloodthirsty lynchers weren't taking any chances with their precious hides. They were possum hunters; burn 'em out and pop 'em down. The smoke was thickening when I heard the prettiest music that ever blessed my old ears. It was the police siren. Two cars came in on the high jump and four husky young cops tumbled out. (To Be Continued) What's Matter With Capital? Washington Undergoes Change in Wartime By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON—Not in recent years certainly not since the last world war, has the question been so often asked: What's the matter with Washington? The question has nothing to do with world affairs. The "Washington" referred to is the city. The reason for the question is that the city is a mess. For more than a year, civil service and other government officials have been warning the District of Columbia about the prospective influx of federal workers. Newspapers and comentators have pointed to the inadequacies of housing, office space, traffic, welfare agencies, schools, hospitals and a dozen other things. But what is done about it all adds up to a big zero. The reason is that Congress rules the District and congressmen, for the most part aren't interested. The District committees in the House and Senate are considered the biggest headaches of any assignments and "District Day" in either branch of Congress (those days when matters pertaining to Washington are considered are marked on many congressman's calendars as holidays. As a partial solution for the housing situation, the District has opened a lefense housing agency that registers every available room-for-rent in the area and doles them out to incoming workers. The local newspapers gave this excellent support. The result as of present date, is that the agency has a listing of slightly more than 2,00( rooms—enough for two weeks at the present rate of new government hir- ings—and the well is running dry. As for office space—only by using the old Gen. Brehon B. Somervel method of building first and getting authorization later has the government been able to up its temporary building campaign to within a mile of physical requirements. The traffic and transportation problem would make a good volume in itself. Some idea of how critical it has become may be gleaned from the serious recommendation of Frederic A. Delano, national capital park and planning commissioner. The President's uncle recently suggested that no automobile (or taxi) be allowed in the mid-town area unless it carried three passengers. Similar suggestions for a solution to all of Washington's ills arc numerous. The District doesn't have an ache or pain that a dozen "medicos" don't rush to the bedside with suggested remedies—but there it ends. Most studenLs of the Washington scene attribute all this to the fact that District of Columbia residents have no vote. Perhaps that is true. Not Cricket — Or Is It? ATCHINSON, Kans.— (IP)— It might be there's something in a name. Grasshopper township was the first township in Atchison county to hd|jJ over its Red Cross goal. ' Miserable With A HEAD COLD?

State-Line Town Is Blackout Orphan DELMAR, Md— (ff>)— Half a blackout is worse than none at all, decided civilian defense officials in this town split by the Delaware-Maryland line. Micomico county, Maryland, planned a county-wide blackout, including half of Delmar. But Sussex county, Delaware, in which the other half is located, made no plans for cooperating. Deciding it wouldn't do to darken only half the town, defense officials left Delmar lighted on both sides of the main street which marks the state line.
