Thurston St. George was very old and very rich. At the western extremity of Federal street, Aberdeen College lifted its pillared portico and looked straight across the town to the insane asylum whose white galleries and many-windowed facades gleamed through the trees three-quarters of a mile away. These were social boundaries. Every step away from these clearly marked precincts took one step downward in the well- defined and perfectly understood social order of Kings Row. The St. Georges, with the San- somes, the Curleys, the Gordons, and the Skeffingtons, made up r. strong and influential social stronghold. They were sometimes referred to irreverently by lesser people as the "Big Five." Col. Isaac Skeflington was a lawyer—"the best defense lawyer in the state." Everyone knew Ike Skeffington, most people liked him, and a good many were genuinely afraid of his caustic tongue. He was a tall, gaunt man with a fiery red beard that spread its splendors to his lowest vest button. He wore a frock coat the year round and, save in the hottest weather, a tall silk hat. O C- 4 1 ' OKEFFINGTON walked through ^ his vegetable garden one morning, and came out on the sidewalk. He stopped and took ofl his tall hat with a near flourish. "Good morning, Marie, good morning, ma'am. How are you this fine morning?" A basket phaeton, its cream- colored fringes swaying to the jog trot of a small plump horse, came to a halt. Madame von Eln greeted the colonel cordially. He smiled at Parris. "How are you, sonny?" "Very well, sir, thank you Colonel Skeffington." "Fine boy you're raising, Marie. He's got manners. What are you ' going to make out of him?" "Well, he wants to be a doctor." "Nonsense. Working around with stinking pills and stuff." Madame laughed aloud. "It's a good profession, Isaac." "Stuff! Make him a lawyer. He ought to be a smart one. You're smart, his daddy was smart, and his granddaddy Mitchell was smart." The old lawyer walked slowly up Walnut street. In the middle of the next block he squinted narrowly at a dingy house set in the midst of tangled shrubbery and swarming vines. A girl with copper-colored curls was standing at the decrepit gate. The colonel bowed gravely "Good morning, sissy." She looked at him without smiling. After a moment's hesitation she replied, "My name is Cassandra." "Oh, ho! Is that so? You arc Dr. Tower's little girl?" "Yes. Yes—sir." "Fine crop of curly hair you've got, miss, fine color—like mine." He removed his hat and shook hib long straight locks. "Redheads have got spunk and character Don't you ever forget it." Dr. Tower came out on th front porch as Colonel Skeflingtoi walked away. "Cassandra!" Colonel Skeffington took off his tall hat with a flourish. Madam von Eln greeted him cordially. He smiled at Parris. "How are you, sonny?" "Very well, sir, thank you, Colonel Skeffington." "Yes, sir." "Come in the house." * T * "TkR. ALEXANDER Q. TOWER ^ had lived in Kings Row for eight years. No one was quite sure where he had come from. Such arrivals were few in Kings Row professional ranks. .Usually, if a new doctor or'lawyer moved n, it v/as cnly after loohirss over Jic field and consulting with the banks and business men. Dr. Tower had settled here without any preliminaries. A few women called. They found Mrs, Tower a quiet, well- bred lady, but singularly uncommunicative. So far as anyone knew, Dr. Tower had never had a patient. After a while the office rooms remained shuttered, and Dr. Tower was seen less and less frequently. It was said on the authority of Lucius Curley, the banker, that Dr. Tower was "well fixed"—the regulation phrase describing anyone of ample means. Everyone heard that he had The Little Foxes to Open at Saenger Here on Sunday fitted up a long room at the back f the house as a sort of labora- ory. Bottles and curious appara- us and hundreds of books, it was much buzzing on the playground about the two parties. Girls whispered together in little groups and boys asked each other self-consciously, "Which party are you goin' to?" Louise Gordon was busy with her lists. She was certain of some 15 or so of Cassandra's guests. Her mother had undertaken to extend some o* the invitations in her behalf. She had suggested more than once during the course of her chats with parents how desirable it really was to have normal, healthy children meet and enjoy themselves under cheerful and normal conditions. Louise spoke to Parris the first day after her mother's decision. "I want you to come to my party, Parris. Saturday. We've going to have lots of fun." "I can't, Louise. I told Cassandra I'd come to her house." Cassandra Tower gave no sign. Seemingly she was unaware of the unwonted excitement. Opinion and inclination had been swaying for two or three days. Boys had begun to notice Cassandra mor and more, and this was the first chance they had had to see her at home. But grad- 'All Through the Night'to Show at Rialto Theater Humphrey Bogart Scores in Rousing Action Picture "All Through the Night," which opens opens Sunday at the Rialto theater, chalks up a high score of brills, action and rousing screen excitement. It is the story of an cx- ;anster who goes after the Gestapo, using just about the same tactics he used against rival mobs in Prohibition days. With Humphrey Bogart as the ganster, a wonderful supporting cast which includes Kaaren Verne, Conrad Veidt, Judith Anderson, Peter Lorre Jane Darwell and Frank McHugh, 'All Through the Night" spells entertainment plus. A smart script, written by Leonard Spigelgas and Edwin Gilbert, from a story by Spigelgass and Leonard Q. Ross, combines drama, romance and comedy in just the right proportions and some of the most witty and pungent dialogue of the year. The tightly knit story covers a span of less than twenty-four hours in the lives (and in some cases, the deaths of its characters). The opening scene cleverly sets the mood showing the ex-gangster Bogart at lunch with some of his henchmen, The boys are playing with some toys soldiers, mapping out the military strategy they think the British should use. Bogart laughs at them and tells them the war is none of their I Light, called the meeting to order. i& Clubs Liberty Hill The Liberty Hill Home Demonstration Club met at the School house Tuesday afternoon, February 3. The Vice-president, Mrs. Huron business. ' They all go off to the ball game, but Bogart is called away by an S. O. S. from his mother. Mr. Miller, the baker who lives next door, has disappeared . Bogart discovers Miller's murdered body in the cellar, and also gets a glimpse of a lovely young stranger, played by Kaaren Verne, who seems to have some connection with the murder. He trails her to the night club where she works as a sing- gcr, but she disappears 1 almost under his eyes. The devotional was given by the vice- president followed by a prayer led by Mrs. Huron Light. Mrs. Kent Light, secretary read the minutes of the last meeting and read the new 'roll call' with those who came from every quarter. Now comes our lesson and the story of His entering again into Capen- aum. One should not miss the significance of what had happened, 01 the emphasis of Jesus upon the primacy of His spiritual mission as tcach- Trailing her further leads him to anl er and preacher rather than as heal- aid. But there was no guessing what he might be studying or working at. For several years now, Mrs. Tower could bo seen every day, itting inside her living room window. Colonel Skefflngton often .aid that Mrs. Tower looked as if ;he were afraid. "She's listening for something," he remarked to his friend, Miles Jackson. "If that vomen doesn't end up in the luna- ,ic asylum over there, I'll be sur- jrised. ... I wonder what that Q 1 in his name stands for." * * * CEVERAL days after Cassandra had mentioned her party to Parris, some 35 children received invitations. Louise Gordon showed her invitation to her mother. Louise was the only child of Dr. Henry Gordon. Mrs. Gordon was a social power. Mrs. Gordon smiled a peculiar smile. "Why don't you have a party of your own?" "Honestly? Could I? But I want to go to Cassandra's party, too. Why can't I? invite her." Then I could "You could have your party at the same time," Mrs. Gordon suggested. All of that week there was ually it seemed indeed that everybody was going to Louise's. There were only five guests in the Tower parlor when Parris arrived. "I don't know why everybody's so late," she said to Parris. "I invited ever and ever so many." "Oh, well," he' said casually, "you know how awful busy everybody is on Saturdays. Come on, let's play something. What do you want to play, Cassie?" The party was a failure. He saw Dr. and Mrs. Tower talking quietly together. Dr. Tower was speaking very rapidly and Mrs. Tower said "sh-h" when Parris came into the hall. He repeated polite party speeches to them, and Dr. Tower bowed gravely. Mrs. Tower smiled. "Thank you," she said gently in response to his formality. "I hope you'll come again." Parris decided that Louise had been very mean to give this party the same day as Cassandra's. He believed she must have done it "on purpose." At the end of the next week the school principal received a note from Dr. Tower saying that old warehouse and a nest of enemy agents. He manages to get the girl away from them and from her he learns about the nefarious work of the Gestapo right in New York. Miller was murdered because he refused to work with them. She herself works 'or them because her father is being icld in a concentration camp in Europe, and it is the only way she can save his life. When Bogart shows her a record book he found in the warehouse v/hich shows that her father has been dead for some time, she tells him all she knows. It is enough to persuade Bogart that this time it really is his business. He rounds up all the ex-mobsters he knows and leads them on a raid against the fifth column meeting that night, neatly foiling a plot for sabotaging a battleship in the harbor, and putting them all behind bars. For the first time in his life, the ox-gangster finds himself a hero with the police— and his girl. cr. What healer has ever sought too avoid publicity or from the crowd? tried to get away On the contrary vith ten members answering the roll all. Mrs. Jim Butler gave a demonstra- ion on the making of a crochet rug. Food-for-Victory" and the planting of gardens were discussed by the :roup. Refreshments were served by Mrs. iuron Light and Mrs. Howcll Byers. .t was decided to discontinue the re- 'reshments. Everyone remember to bring her gift for the March auction sale. SAENGER Now and Sat. the typical healer has tried to exploi publicity in every pissible way. Here in the event associated wijth thi coming of Jesus again to Capen aum, we have further insistence upoi this. The crowds around the doo were such that those who brough a sick man to be healed could no find it possible to get in where Jesus was. Their intense earnestness was evident in the drastic measure they Hope will find a hearty welcome at I took in cutting a hole in the flat roof, so that they might lower the sick man into the room in the presence of Jesus. The Master certainly could not help being impressed by such extreme measures, but His first word to the sick man was not one of healing, but an assurance of the forgiveness of his sins. This was a distinct challenge to the conventional religious thought and at- William Ludigan Shirly Ross In "Sailors on Leave" -ALSO- Bograt whose recent hits in "High | titude,_ andjt^wasjn^the nature of Sierra" and "The Maltese Falcon" " have brought him to the front ranks of Hollywood's stars, is at his best in "All Through the Night" in a characterization that is highly original.

Ilamill, Pastor Sunday School Lesson Salvation of Man Was Supreme Ideal in Missions and Ministries of Jesus Text: Mark 2:1-12 an assertion by Jesus of His unique place and mission. Immediately the interest of many in the miraculous BILL BOYD ANDY CLYDE In "Outlaws of the Desert" By WILLIAM E. GILROY, D. D. Editor of Advance This lesson on the healing ministry of Jesus, which has its scene in Capernaum, is so similar to the last lesion on "A Busy Sabbath in Capernaum" that it seems necessary to take nto accounl the intervening happen- ngs so that we may get a full pic- ure of the dramatic events and also able to see them in their full jetting. After the busy Sunday in Capen- aum and the healing of many, Jesus arose early in the morning and went out of the city into a solitary place where He prayed. Peter, whose wife's mother was one of those whom Jesus had healed, and the other disciples followed after Jesus and when they had found Him they said, "AH men seek for thcc." Jesus then went with His disciples into surrounding towns, and Mark says that He "preached in the synagogues throughout all Galilee." There came to Him a leper, beseeching Jesus to heal him. Jesus, touching the leper, said, "1 will; be thou clean." He charged the healed leper that he should go and show himself to the priest and fulfill the requirements of Jewish law, bul He warned him that he should say nothing to any man. However, when the leper found that he was healed, he began to "blaze abroad the matter," so that Jesus could not enter into the city. Even in the desert, where He sought refuge, He was thronged was diverted, as they sensed something that was heretical according to their ideas, and in this case they did not appreciate His speaking as one having authority and "not as the scribes." But the effect was just what Jesus intended, to guard against His mission being interpreted as that if healing the body rather than that of saving the soul. It is the salvation of the whole man that comes first in the work of Christ. The healing of the bodp was incident to, and not the supreme thing in His mission and ministry. If Jesus had been only a great healer His name and His fame would have vanished long ago; it is because His Gospel is "the power of God unto salvation," that He is the same yester- i day, today and forever.
