They reason this way: Of all sections of the country, the West is most likely to fluctuate in 1940. It isn't predominantly Republican or predominantly Democratic. A comparatively moderate portion of the vote, swinging one way or the other, will carry the election that way. They argue, and back up their case ivith masses ot western mail, that isolationist sentiment in the West will )lay old hob with the lads who voted for repeal of the embargo. They expect it to be the "balance of po- ver" issue. They suspect that a change in the -situation in Europe might give them a big bulge or possibly wipe out their case altogether. They are less posi- , live in their assertions as to what the issue may do in the presidential' I campaign. I Borah Not Dead Again Senator Borah has been reported dead again, the third time in four '. years. Newspapers and press associat- i ions were deluged with calls from ; people who said they "heard it on the radio." Immedaitcly the news organizations telephoned his office to learn what was what. His staff denied it, but he wasn't in the office. We happened to be walking down the corridor with the senator when his staff rushed out en bloc to let him know he was dead again. He doesn't think it is very funny. What Will Navy Do? You can ask all you want to but no official source will tell you what the navy is expected to do in that new strip of "neutral water" between the three mile limit and the newly proclaimed peace zone around Americas, We asked an official information source at the navy what a U. S. destroyer would do if it came upon a German submarine getting set to sink i torpedo into the flanks of a British leighter somewhere within the neu- .ial zone. ''All orders in that connection are sealed and secret," he said ."I don't ! know what they are and don't want) to learn until the war is over. The man 15 steps down the corridor knows out he won't tell you.'' j That would be Admiral Stark, chiel of naval operations. Congress Wants lo Know Many members of congress would ' ike to know what the "orders are.' Ihey doubt if the navy has orders to fire on any belligerent ships within the neutral zone, no matter what hey arc doing. In most circumstances that would be war. Best information ivailable is that the U. S. destroyer, seeing a belligerent submarine or warship about to sink another ship, would a.''k them to 'move on" farther out into the Atlantic—just like a park policeman barking at a bum. If the warship refused to move the destroyer commander . would simply have to'write a report about it. Then the report would course up through channels to the State Department which would protest to the owner of the warship'or submarine. That wouldn't be as futile as it Thursday, NovemHet' 9,1930 SERIAL STORY JOAN OF ARKANSAS BY JERRY BRONDFIELD COPYRIGHT. tp3B.

CHAPTER XXVI «TJAN," she whispered. "Dan . . . my father's money doesn't mean a thing to me any Tiore." She touched his hand ever so slightly, but he refused to take the hint. "In fact," she added softly, "I wish he didn't have a dime right now." • He looked down at her. "That would leave you in pretty bad shape," he said, nodding toward their captors. She looked at Big Ed, hunched over his cards. Of all limes and places at which to discover she was in love. The irony of it made her smile faintly. "What's so amusing?" Dan asked. She shook her head. "You might never know." They sat for a long time without saying a word. It must have been at least 15 minutes before Joan broke the silence. "What're you thinking of?" "Well, if I want to lie about it, I'm thinking about the game tomorrow. If I tell the truth . . . I'm thinking of you." Her heart took a flip-flop. Perhaps it wasn't so hopeless after all. But he didn't volunteer anything further. He picked up the paper again and turned to the sports section. "Chuck Mitchell's taking my place," he announced. "Will he do?" "He's okay offensively, but Slocum doesn't need offense for Pitt. He needs defense . . . gobs of it. Mitchell can be sucked in too easily on fake spinners . . . and Pitt'll spin him dizzy." She nodded vaguely as Rocco's words came back to her. ". . . Guys like Rhodes . . . dime a dozen where would he be . . . without that guy Webber , .

Sam lied Dan's hands and left him But it wouldn't work. She got up and went to her room. Rocco jerked his head over his shoulder. "Looks like the kid's getting the jitters." Big Ed turned his head slowly on the sofa. Big Ed began a game of solitaire. "I'm goin' out in the barn now," said Sam. "Okay." Ed replied, without looking up from his cards. Sam took oil' his coat and Joan *-" _--.,- .,._ . .^..u ui\> i> i j j Ljtn i i i\.f\M> WIL IllO tJUclt Cl 111,1 U I'clll toward Dan, stretched full length! watcliect him.

Wild and iiiiformiihitcd plans ran through her head, Big Ed hadn't noticed Sam's liilest bit of carelessness. Even if lit- did see Sam's coat hanging on Ihe hook now he wouldn't suspect anything. Naturally, Sam would remove his coat to tinker with the car. And he would have to remove his jacket first., before taking od' his gun. It was perfLct. His Kcl never would figure there might be a gun tinder the coat. Joan looked at her watch. It was noon. No telling how long Sam would be occupied. She stood up. "I — I'm a little (••hilly," she said, rubbing her arms. "How about some cofl'ee?" Uig Ed looked at her. "Sure . . . could use a little swig myself." before noon. It was only a matter of hours before the game would start. ,Joan looked at a magazine, but she couldn't read. Dan sat down on the sofa, got up almost immediately. He walked to the window and looked out. Big Kd watched him closely. He wondered if he ought to lock Dan up again. He looked at Dan's shoulders. The boy reminded him of a caged tiger . . . waiting . . . pacing . . . helpless. Uig Ed almost fell sorry for him. The kid sure did want to play in that ball game in the worst way. 'Better sit down, kid," he ordered. "You ain't so likely lo get into trouble then." "You didn't by any chance bring the morning paper with you?" Joan asked Sam. "Naw ... it slipped my mind." "Quit your kiddin'," Ed said, but Sam didn't get it. "Hey, boss," Sam reminded him-1 CHE had her plan worked out self. "Something's wrong with the j now, but siie wanted to pre- btis.

"Here . . , I'll open it for you," she said steadily, walking toward the sofa. She started flipping pages and bent down to spread it on his lap. "Don't get excited," she whispered quickly. "I've got a plan . . . think it'll work . . ." She turned more pages noisily. Big Ed looked at her once and went on with his gam;'. "I'm going to set this place on fire," Joan whispered as she straightened up. (To Be Continued) Would sell him any materials. He tried to buy his supplies outside, and learned that he could not get them trucked to the scene of operations. In the end ho was stumped. Building Codes Wonjwns of f.ahor Another passible obstacle is seen in the building codes nnd restrictions which prevail in many cities, Some of these are so worded thai an unfriendly city inspector could easily go through a newly completed building and order half of the work torn out and done over again. After a few experiences with thai yort of thing the local contractors could lie pardoned for declining to do business with the union which' brought such experiences in its Ir.iin —and, since the C. I. O. is not overly popular in most official circles 'it is taken for granted dial (| u . number a! unfriendly inspectors would be wither large. That obstacle may be partly lowered by the Department of Justice'.anti-host campaign in the Iniiidinn industry.

"We'll be packing outa here tonight either way," Ed said meaningly, nodding toward Joan. "You," Ed called, jerking his head toward Dan. "Maybe you better get back up there." "It's too study," Dan replied sullenly. "I'm not going to make any trouble." Ed looked at him long and hard. "Okay, kid . . . you can stay down here then.

Locals exist in a number of cities—some on the west coast, some in f sounds. Both sides in the present Eu, loj.ean war want to keep in tho good [graces of the United Mates. The belligerent naval commander, understanding the situation, might just shrug his ."boulders and "move on," calling out ".sec you later" to the frightened Ircighter.
