That was Parris Mitchell. Parris was, in his own dark Way, a thoughtful boy. He was standing a little apart and was dreamily half thinking something of Miss Venable's thought. Inside they were all—well, kind of alike. But outside—here, everything was different. Two or three girls were standing near, talking with their heads close together. He wondered why they always acted that way—as if they had secrets. Vera Lichinsky was one of them. She caught sight of him, "You going down to Professor Berdor/Ts for your music lesson?" "It's my birthday." "Oh." She looked slightly mystified. Nothing ever interfered with her violin lessons. "I've got a new Bach piece." Vera made it sound important. "I have a new Bach piece, too." "Is it hard?" "Yes. It's in four flats." "Well, I've got to go." She turned with an air of serious decision. She did not look back. "Hello, Parris." Cassandra Tower hung back from the other girls who were walking away, their heads still close together. "Hello, Cassie." Cassandra smiled. "I heard you say today's your birthday. How old are you?" "Twelve." "I'm going to have a party next Saturday." "Are you?" "Yes. I'm going to invite you." "I'd like to come." "All right. I'll send you an invitation." He walked slowly toward the stile which mounted the tall fence surrounding the school grounds. He did not see a little girl who stood outside watching him through the gap in the boards. She was smaller than Parris, and rather poorly dressed in a faded calico dress. She was extremely blond, and an expression of sweetness—half angelic, half sensuous —gave her a somewhat enigmatic charm. "Hello, Renee." They proceeded without further speech along the road toward Parris' home. Renee lived on the von Eln place. Her father, Sven Gyllinson, was the overseer of the nurseries owned by Parris' grandmother. Renee and Parris had played together since they were Mrs. Robert Campbell to Present Pupils in Recital Friday Always an outstanding event for the music lovers of Ihe cily is Ihc annual spring recilal given by the piano and violin pupils of Mrs. Robert Campbell will present her pupils in a recital at the Barlow on Friday evening, February 13, at 8 o'clock.

She was only few months younger than Parris, but she was a grade behind him in school. Seemingly, they took no notice of each other now. When he picked up a rock and threw it, she threw one also with ridiculously similar gestures. If he swung his book strap from one shoulder to the other, she did, too. Apparently she wished nothing but his company. She was always "tagging" along—always had been as long as he could remember. As they neared home Renee spoke. "I'll be glad when school's out, won't you?" "Uh huh." He opened the wicket gate and stood aside for her to pass through. She waved and turned into a lane that' led to the overseer's cottage. * * * PARRIS MITCHELL'S moth«r had died when he was born, his father less than a year later. Since then he had been cared for by his maternal grandmother. She Parris opened the gate and stood aside for Renee to pass through. She waved and turned into a Une tha». |*d to the overseer's cottage. adored him, and he adored her. His grandmother, Marie Arnaut von Eln, was wholly French. Her family came originally from Lorraine. She had been twice married, the second time to a wandering German aristocrat who had come to America to make a fortune. After various enterprises he had bought lands at Kings Row because of some fancied similarity of the soil to that of his native German province. He built a house of foreign fashion, laid out elaborate grounds, and manufactured sufficient wine to drink himself to death. Marie von Eln was a resourceful woman. She employed French and German labor and turned the vineyards into a nursery. Kings Row had never known quite what to make of her. She was a "foreigner," but obviously did not fit into the usual categories of what were always derogatorily referred to as "the foreign elements." She had the bearing and manner of an aristocrat, and her sense of humor was of the kind that often made the women of Kings Row uncomfortable. Parris bore a striking resemblance to her. "Bon soir, grand'mere." He held her very tight and kissed her four times on each smooth cheek. He rubbed his face against her hair. "Ma belle grand'mere!" "Mon enfant." She held him off and put up her lorgnettes. "Tu es fatigue?" "Moi? Non. Pas du tout." "A - te you hungry?" "Of course." Madame called, "Anna!" A short fat maid appeared so quickly that one suspected that she had been waiting at the door. "Anna, dass Kind hat Hunger." The maid smiled broadly. "Was willst du—Milch, Brod—eine Pas- tetc?" "Was fur Pastete gibt cs, Anna?" "Kirsch—ganz frisch." Victory Food Drive Endorsed 14 Shover Springs Youths Subscribe to Cause Fourteen farm youths of the Shover Springs community met Saturday Tebruary 7th, and drafted plans for M per cent farm participation and the Food-for-Victory campaign. Afle a discussion of the foods most needed and possibilities for increasing the production of all farm products essential to the successful prosecution of the war the farm youths decided hat the most effective contribution the Food-for-Victory campaign would require the organization of a ocal 4-H club. The following officers were elected: president, Williard Rogers; Vive-president, Herman Aaron; Scorotary- trcasurcr, Zclman Aaron; Reporter, 3illy Ruggles; Song leader, Marjoric McWilliams; Local leaders, Mr. Early McWilliams and Mrs. E, Aaron. With a beginning enrollment of 1'. boys and girls actively engaged in an all out food production progarm it is felt that these youths will contribute their very best efforts to winning the war on the farm front. Every member that joined planned a year-rounc garden and one additional food project. Barney W. Chambers, assistant county agent, outlined the county 4- H club program of work and emphasized the opportunities for service avilable to 4-H club members in solving the farm problems directly related to winning the war.

Johnson, Group Representative of the Ptney Grove Rowden 41A lotion Community, announces a meeting of the accociation at Piney Grove school Thursday, February 19, at 8 p. m. to complete seed arrangements for all members and other business. Mr. C. A. Vines, Extension Agronomist in charge of Cotton Im» provemcnt in Arkansas and county agents Oliver L. Adams and E. W. Loudermilk, will be present and assist with the meeting. Hempstead and Nevada county farmers not affiliated actively with the group are urged by Mr. Johnson to be present along with members. Last year 20 members had 140 acres planted to Rowden 41A brcedsr and first-year seed. The group has secured 2000 pounds of seed from the Breeder for planting this year as multiplication stock.

Follow wl%R* YA-TRO-MOl After the pie he went directly .o his piano practice. The square rosewood piano was old, and the toys were yellow, but it was in good tune. Very slowly, very carefully, counting aloud as he practiced, he attacked the Bach piece "in four flats." He began again at the beginning for the 10th time when his grandmother came to the door. "What is this that you play?" "It is an Invention." "Indeed. Is that something important?" "Herr Berdorff says so." "It is extremely ugly. It must be frightful to learn such a thing! Come with me—it is enough of this—this Invention as you call it—and it is your birthday. I have a present for you." Parris lay in bed listening to the little sounds of the night. He was very happy. It had been a beautiful evening, and his present —all those books! His "belle, belle, belle grand'mere!" He had heard Anna say that Madame was growing old. Old! Some day his grandmother would die—sooner than other boys' mothers who were much younger. Terror seized him. He took the edge of the quilt between his teeth so he wouldn't cry, but it was no use—he was already crying. No, no, no! Le bon Dieu would never permit that. He remembered once that his grandmother had shrugged her shoulders contemptuously at something Anna said about trusting the good God. Was it—was it possible that his grandmother knew something she had never told him—that perhaps —perhaps there wasn't a bon Dieu at all, just as he had found out when he was a very little boy that there was no Santa Glaus and no real giants? He turned his face down into the pillow and pulled the covering over his head. (To Be Continued) EXCITING NEW SPRING COATS • Betty Rose *Mary Lane «and Others Love a good "buy"?
