It is being presented by the local Melbodist choir. With the outbreak of tbp war nil plans social were changed, almost in the twinkle of an rye, but everyone is congratulating himself over the fact that (here are still musical and club treats. There are a few parties always with us, loo, in spite of the fact thorp are FO few baehelors-al-large. Hostesses are making the best of these few remaining weeks before the next draft will further reduce the number of available men. Large day-time gatherings and general comings-together make up for I he absence of any large receptions. Dozens of automobiles parked in groups here or there would suggest lo a casual observer that a big party was being held nearby, nut it is usually just a meeting for knitting or sewing for the Red Cross, or else a benefit bridge or informal tea for a charity group. DOC IN DANOER CHAPTER XXIX 'T'HE lieutenant in charge came over to the shack and hammered on the door with the butt of his revolver. "Mr. Oliver." "Stand away," Doc said. "Stale police. You're under arrest." "Can you protect us?" "Yes, sir. Come out, both of you." "Swoby isn't here. There's no one but Mrs. Baumer and me," He stepped out. What happened next, I don't rightly know. There was a rush and some police shots, fired into the ground, and free- for-all fighting between the Well- ivers and the mob, with the footballers chucking rules into the discard and doing nicely. One of the police cars unraveled itself and put off with Doc between the Loot and another cop. The two that were left hustled me over to the mansion. "Where'ii tho man you were protecting, ma'am?" "He got away. In my clothes." "That's good," he said. "He didn't do it. We got the man that did, a red-headed hobo, about half-witted. He's confessed." "Where are they taking Doc- Oliver?" "To Brandon jail." "Will he be safe there?" He shrugged. "That's up to the sherifi', ma'am." Juddy came up and hugged me. "Oh, Mom!" she said. "What about Maurie?" "Dr. Slarrow's taken him to the Leverton Hospital." "Where's Angel? I didn't see o'clock we had word from the hospital. Maurie was unconscious. Every hour we telephoned. No change. Tambay didn't get much sleep that night, To pass the time, I told Juddy about the old Tam- bay document I'd found, and the gold ornaments. She wasn't even interested. "I don't need any proofs that I've been a fool about Loren," she said. "What price Angel, now?" I said. "Mom," she said, "does Hendy remind you of anyone?" Then all of a sudden it hit me. "Well, by thisscnthat, it's Angel! Hendy's a pocket edition of him. They even look alike. Why they even think alike!" "Now do you get it, about Angel and me?" "O. K,, I'm dumb. But I wouldn't be dumb enough, after I'd married one of a kind and found it was a flop, to lake on another just like him." "That's the point. Angel was never my danger." "No? What was?' "Hendy, of course. I thought you understood that before." "You told me you were cured of him."

She turned to Rags and Tatters Owen who had been in the thick of it and needed repairs. "Well, where is Angel?" Thai vaudeville team put on their best duet style. "I don't know," they both said together, and then, each to the other, "Well, "Hendy himself was no temptation. The temptation was his money. You know the homeopathic principle, like cures like. Angel was a counter-irritant, or whatever they call it." I gawped at her. "But unless you're stuck on Angel — " "No, it was all fair enough. When he couldn't get me any other way, he wanted to marry me. I never pretended, with him. He just took everything for granted." their push through the swnmps. Dr. Starrovv stopped in on his way to Brandon. Maurie was about tho same. He had an outside chance. "We may have to operate," he said. "Will you telephone us?" Juddy said. "If it's successful." "And if it isn't?" I said. "We'll hold back the news as long as we can. To save Oliver. They're organizing to break into the jail and get him if, Maurie dies." Over in the camp, Hendy Kent was puttering around his helicopter, readying it up to leave. "I wish you'd slick around till tomorrow, Hendy," I told him. "T might have use for you." Somehow or other Doc Oliver had to get out of that^pil if things went wrong at the hospital. "Righl-o, Mom," he said. "Yours to command." All the morning we waited for news. All we got was rumors. By afternoon I couldn't stand it any longer. I hopped in the car and beat it for Brandon. The sheriff was at the jail. "What can I do for you, Mrs. Baumer?" he said, very polite and official. On Screen of Last where is he?" You needn't said. "I know. answer," Juddy He's drunk. He Personal Mention Arthur Barr has gone to the University of Missouri, Columbia, to enter the School of Journalism. He would be when I needed him. i Hendy, too. I suppose." | "Not me." Hendy Kent poked i his head in at the doorway. It i was wrapped in a dirty, white bandage. "Somebody sideswiped me with a tire-wrench," he said. You never can tell about folks. That's what makes life so interesting. I'd have bet that pampered son of the rich would run a mile lo side step a fight. Juddy said, "Come here and let me fix it." f. * * Rave her something to do while we were waiting. At two "You stuck up for him against Loren Oliver." "My theory was that Loren was being unnecessarily tough with Angel, and I wasn't going to stand by and see him put it over." "I get it. The gal bought a dog. Anyone that won't protect her own property is no true woman, huh?" Two washed-out females wobbled over to the Feederia for breakfast. Crossing the road I caught sight of something at the lower turn that jarred a gasp out of me. Juddy saw it, too; a figure swinging from Tambay Tree. Old Swoby! — I thought. "It's a dummy," she said. The thing swung around in the wind. A placard was pinned to its front. It was lettered in big, ugly print: "You ought to get around more, sheriff," I said. "Don't you know they're all set to lynch Loren Oliver?" "Sears ain't dead." "No. But he's liable to die tonight or sooner." "I can't help that," he said. "You'll have to excuse me now. I've got an emergency call out in the country." I could have kicked his pants, he looked so stuffy and important.

"They already shot the toes off three-four of our folks last night. Listen, ma'am; it's like this. If the crowd comes here after Oliver—well, suppose some of them gets killed?" "Listen, yourself, Mowry," I said. "We've got to get Oliver out of there. If you'll manage it, Juddy'll cut you in for your 25 per cent on the gold proposition." He favored me with that pig's- eye squint of his. "What guarantee have I got of that?" "I'll guarantee it. Why wouldn't I?" "You ain't the owner of Tam- bay," he said. "What about her?"

By WILLIAM E. GILROY, I). D. Editor of Advance Capernaum was a small town on tho inland Sea of Galilee. A busy place in fishing and commerce, it was situated in a small area of country that was one of the most thickly populated that the world has known. It lias been estimated that there were about two million people living in Galilee. Dr. Fran?. Delilzsch in his little book, "Artisan Life in the Time of JCSLIS," has given a very vivid picture of the teeming multitudes of Galilee as they plied their various trades and occupations. Fishing was evidently one of Ihe main industries. Here, to this city of Capernaum, JCSLIS came on a Sabbath clay, and as the litle of our lesson indicates, it was "u busy Sabbath in Capernaum." He wenl, as was His custom, into the synagogue and there He taught Ihe people. Those in the synagogue were astonished at His teaching, for His words bore an authority lhat was something more than formal in contrast with that of their accustomed teachers, the scribes. There was more in Capernaum that day than the ministry of Jesus in teaching. Our lesson has to do with Ihe ministry of healing, and those present were even more astonished it the wonder-working power of the Master than they were at His words. We must remember that it was a day without hospitals or asylums, without modern knowledge of medicine, when disease was often associated with the possession or influence of evil spirits. This must have been true, particularly, of cases of epilepsy or of various forms of insanity, which probably were as relatively numerous as Ihey are today. We have, here and there in the New Testament record, vivid glimpses of dangerous maniacs or of poor human creatures wracked and torn in Ihe throes of some epileptic or similar seizure. Jesus healed these, and His healing ministry was manifested in various other ways. Many questions and problems are associated with the whole question of divine healing, and particularly with tho instances of miraculous healing that are often reported today as they were reported in ancient times. Did Jesus manifest some rare power of healing which His followers could exercise if they attained more nearly to His purity of life and consecration lo God and to the service of man? Or has God ordained in our modern day tho miracles of medicine and surgery, that certainly would have been profound wonders in the ancient world, as a means of bestowing wider and greater blessing upon mankind? Should divine agency accompany human agency in the healing of disease? Is there a work for the saints to perform when the doctor or tho surgeon has clone his best? Or should there be larger co-operation between the agencies that represent the wonder-working powei I of Christianity and the agencies that | represent the wonder-working power of science? These and similar ques- lions arise in connection with the whole subject of healing in the New Testament, as it is emphasized in our lesson. Considering tho prominence given to healing in a sick world and how quickly the stories of wonder-working power would spread in a thickly populated region, the marvel is that the New Testament is not filled with the stories of miracle healing lei the exclusion of everything else. Yet, we have the flea remphasis of Jesus, not upon His power to heal the body, but upon His power to iieal the soul. He taught constantly lhat, far worse than anything that could happen to the body, even death, was what could happen to the soul. He came to bring to man, first of all, moral and spiritual salvation, and the miracles f healing were always associalcd with the power of Jesus to save. In fact, it would be hardly too much to say that the miracles of feeding, healing, and restoring to life on the material side, were always symbolic of that deeper, richer, and more powerful healing lhat Jesus brought on the spiritual side. Metals to Be Scarce in U. S. Home Gadgets Will Be Made of Substitutes By HERMAN ALLEN AP Feature Service Writer WASHINGTON—How will we stack up on the little things of life after a year of war? "Look around the house," a war prbduijlion official told me, "and figure that just about everything made of metal will have to be replaced with something else when it wears out. "Cooking utensils will be made of glass, plastics or pottery. We even suggested to a gas range manufacturer that he make burners out of pottery instead of cast iron. Sprinkle various kinds of salts on them and you can make them any color you want. The sides of that man's stoves, incidentally, probably will be made out of fire-proof insulating board before the year is out. "We'll ask householders to buy replacement parts for electrical appliances when they burn out—and maybe they'll have to turn in the old parts Coils, such as are found in toasters, contain nickel, and we need nickel "The government wants everybody to have a radio—it helps morale foi people to know what's going on—but such "heavy industry' items as washing machines and vacuum cleaners will be out of the picture entirely No more toy trains, either—probablj no melal toys at all, just things tha can be made of wood, paper or plas tics. Not Many Plastics "Plastics themselves may not.be so plentiful, either. Some of them contain the same things needed to maki explosives. "If power shortages develop in cer tain areas, householders in thosi areas may be asked not to use theii electrical appliances." This official didn't foresee anothe: call for housewives to turn in alum inum, because production of new aluminum is rising rapidly. And i you were wondering what's goinf to happen to that big pile of pots am pans down the street, he said it prob ably will disappear soon, as incendiary x>mb manufacture speeds up. There is some talk of .collecting tin cans, but it's far more likely there will be a collection of waste paper. Here's what officials said about some other little things: Drugs—"I don't think there'll be any critical shorlage of drugs, because the government is making every effort to put health ahead of less important things. There will no doubt be less rubbing alcohol available but enough alcohol for other medical purposes. "Many drugs, especially the 'essential' oils, have been imported from the Far East, and there may be a shortage in some of these, which would cut down on our supply of mentholated products, for instance. We have a large stock pile of quinine. We got 35 per cent of our codliver oil from Japan, but we can get the same vitamins from halibut, swordfish and hark livers or by synthetic proces- es. Unfortunately, it can't be done so economically." Bigger Powder Boxes Cosmetics—"I think the main change will be in containers. They'll be simper and larger. Women probably will lave to buy refills instead of new ipsticks. Many ingredients are now Deing made synthetically, and many more probably can be. "I don't look for any serious restrictions on cosmetics. The British found they were pretty helpful morale builders." Toothbrushes — "Manufacturers may Dan Cupid's Busy Season Wedding March Is America's Theme Song Now By DOROTHY ROE Wide World Features Writer The Wedding March is America'* theme song just now, as thousands, of voung couples prepare to celebrate St. Valentine's day in the good old-fashion^d way. "Be my Valentine" has a new meaning as wartime quickens the national tempo and marriage figures hit an all-time high. Though almost any day looks gbbd to the girl who gels her man, there's no other dale so nice for a wedding anniversary as February 14* the one day in every year when nobody is ashamed of being senlimenlal. Sentimental Year That little man with the bow and arrow is expected to score historic victories on all fronts this year, as the world pauses to pay tribute to the' pau-on saint of love in Ihe midst, of Armageddon. Il's good lo know lhal wedding bells still can drown out the sound of cannon, and that General Cupid flies faster than the bombers. Already America's marriage totals have surpassed Ihe previous record set in 1917, the bumper war bride year. In 1941 a million and ; a half American girls went to the altar; and the 1942 grand total is expected to approach two million . Records.of the New York marriage license bureau show that more than 80,000 brides and grooms tied lhat important knot last year in New York City, as compared with the 1917 score of 76,000. Veils at a Premium So hearts and flowers are the order of the day, wedding veils are at a premium and there's a run on diamond engagement rings and wedding bands. While formal church weddings, with all the trimmings, still hold the lead, many more informal home weddings are predicted for 1942, due to the exigencies of wsr. The Valentine bride will be radiant, whether she wears traditional white satin or says the same words in niotfi. The formal bride may choose cotton net or rayon satin for her gown this year, because of priorities, and she may prefer pastel pink or blue. The. informal bride probably will choose a simple afternoon dress or suit, with romantic white or pastel hal and accessories. The most popular costume for the bridegroom of 1942 is a uniform. lasses, which we need to make industrial alcohol.

They take so little steel, and none of the scarcer metals. Collecting them wouldn't be worthwhile." Tobacco—"We have big surpluses of cigarette and pipe tobacco and cigar filler. Our best cigar wrappers came from the East Indies, but we can get along with domestic wrapper."
