"I mean— no, no — I mean what time this week?" "Oh— it's Sunday." "Goodness! Why, I got sick last Tuesday, didn't I?" "Longer than that, dear. It's the middle of August." "The — middle — of — August?" He whispered the words. "Have I been—" "You've been unconscious for weeks, Parris. You see now how very sick you have been, and how careful you'll have to bo." He was silent for a lew minutes. He turned his head very slowly on the pillow and looked out of the window. "When — when did she go away?" "What? Oh! The Gyllinsons left just the day after you took sick." "Where did they go?" "I don't know, dear. I don't think Svcn told anyone." His convalescence was slow and tedious. Gradually he learned to take a few steps, and then to walk without leaning on Anna. It was a long time before he could bring himself to so much as look toward the Gyllinson cottage. * * * "T GUESS Uncle Henry could •*-hitch up and take me to school next week, couldn't he?"

The talk had run to other matters when he returned with glasses and a pitcher making a pleasant tinkle of ice. "By the way, Marie," Mr. St. George was saying, "I hear you've lost your overseer.

"Besides," Madame continued, "you need study in German and French that you don't get at school." "Well, I might talk to him." "Tell you what. I'm riding out that way tomorrow. I'll send him around. I'd like to see him get a good place. Surely you remember the Carrs!" "Don't recall them, Thurston." "They came here from New York state. Had some money.

"Um—send him to sec me." * * * rjTHE fires of Indian summer burned on every hill, and the nostalgic odors of autumn filled the air. It was the most stirring of all seasons in this region. One warmish day a crowd of boys swarmed down the hill after school, shouting the relief of their escape from the stuffy classrooms. It was Fulmer Green's "gang." The boys swooped down the hill and passed through the tiny streets of Jinktown. "Looky!" Fulmer Green pointed to the blue cottage at the end of the street. "That's where ol" crazy Ben lives." He picked up a rock and threw it in a long easy curve. It landed with a loud thump on the rotten shingles, "C'mon, let 'em have soma more." A shower o£ rocks clattered on the low roof, making the splinters of dry wood fly in every direction. Mrs. Singer came out on the front step. "Get on with you! You're going to hurt somebody first thing you know." The boys did not answer. They grinned and shuffled a shade uneasily. Mrs, Singer went into the house and closed the door. A heavy clod shattered against the panels, and yells of laughtes- greeted Fulmer Green's daring and spirited answer. "C'mon," he commanded, looking back at the house as they passed. "Who does she think she is, anyhow? Crazy, that's what she is. People like that ain't got no business livin,' round Kings Row, nohow." One of the bolder boys sent another rock banging against the side of the house. Mrs. Singer appeared once more. "Go on, now," she called. "You quit that, or I'll have the law on you." Fulmer stood in the road facing her squarely. "Aw, you shut up," he said. A hail of stones fell on and around the house. A few windowpanes shattered with loud crashes. At that moment Benny, returning from a neighbor's, ran down the road and yelled at the top of his voice, "Stop that, stop throwin' rocks at our house, you dirty ol'— dirty ol' snoozers, you!" The stones whizzed so close to his head he had to dodge. He ran quickly around the house and reappeared with an old rusty pitchfork. Holding it ahead of him, he charged straight at his tormen- Mr. and Mrs. Max Meyers and Mrs. Herbert Keltz left Wednesday for their homes in Clinton, Ind. They have made their home in Blevins for the past three months. Mr. and Mrs. Perry Evans of Little Rock were visitors in Blevins Saturday morning. Miss Mary Agnes Evans, music teacher in Blevins High School, accompanied them home for a short visit before leaving for Washington D. C. where she has accepted a government appointment.

"He had a kind of fight over there in Jinktown with Fulmer Green's gang. They rocked Benny's house and he got after 'em with a pitchfork." "Goodness, I never saw Benny fight, did you?" "No, hut he went for 'em that time. Fulmer told his daddy, and they had Benny arrested." "Sure enough? Did they put him in jail?" "Just one night. Mr. Green said he ought to be sent to a reform school, but Colonel Skefflngton J was on Benny's side—he got him off. But they bound Benny's mother over to keep the peace." "Fulmer Green is kind of lowdown, I think, don't you?" "Sure he is. He's a stinker." (To Be Continued) ^V^/ a—Woven check sheer Enka rayon, white organdy iabot.

Asked what was the big idea, he replied, "I'm looking for a sponsor." A new development by the Forest Service, known as a "haze-cutter," had a chance to say, "My! Maybe this man Donald Nelson would be a good candidate for President in 1944!" Nelson himself has spiked such possibilities. Whether he did it consciously, the fact remains that in his in- tial 1942 appearance before Senator Truman's Commttee Investigating National Defense, Nelson, as head of the new War Production Board, declared flatly, "I'm not interested in politics. It's a business you must learn from childhood." A few moments later, Senator Ralph O. Brcwster of Dexter, Maine, tried to summarize what Nelson's own attitude to his job might be in assuming full responsibility for production during the war period. "In other words," said Brewstcr, "y° u are ready to be the goat." "I'm ready to be the goat," Nelson repealed after him and then added that on this job, "I have everything to lose and nothing to gain." And thus Washington's newest po- sccms to have for him now. There are plenty of Washington politicos who question whether Nelson has any more authority or power than Knudsen had under the old OPM. After all, it's the Army and Navy who are actually going to let the contracts just as they've always done. But Nelson, through his ability to win confidence, and with that confidence win co-operation, may have what it takes to put over this war production ef- lort. Nelson's ability to meet an issue nore, than half way—his ability to walk right up to a controversial ques- .ion and wrestle with it before it has a chance to sneak up behind his desk and throw him—was clearly demonstrated in his first appearance before the Truman Committee. This committee was all set to raise hob fire lookouts.

The service opens at 10:50 and the concert by the choir will begin about 11:10 and continue for 40 minutes. The choir is conducted by C. S. White, a senior student, and is under the supervision of Miss Thelma Batson, head of the Voice Department at the Ouachita college. For the last several years this choir has been receiving national re- ahout the 300 dollar-a-ycar men and | cognition, appearing at conventions, the 400 "woes"—the "without compensation" consultants in the war production organization. The committee investigators hud been digging on the past records of these big shots temporarily working for the government, and letters had gone out asking for data on the war contracts now held by the corporations these dollar-a- year and woe men held stock in or were employed by. Furthermore, the Truman Committee's report of Jan. 15 had some blistering comments on this subject, expressing opposition to "a policy of taking free services from persons with axes to grind." Knowing these things, one of Nelson's first moves was to ask Senator Truman for permission to testify on his policy in hiring dollar-a- year men and woes. The committee complied and Nelson walked right up to the dragon and slew it. The result is there won't be any expose of potential misdeeds these big business conferences ad large religious gatherings in all parts of the country. In announcing the coming to First Baptist Church of the choir, the pastor, the Rev. W. R. Hamilton, said "The public is invited. Of course no admission will be charged, but a free will offering will be received."

Sinclair Products Lead In Value Wholesaled and Distributed in Hemp-^gathering system and it is by this pipeline that the major portion tjf Sinclair crude is brought to their 12 great refineries in the United States. Savings effected through this cheap transportation and their strategically located refineries are passed on to the consumer in the form of higher Sinclair Refining company products j quality products at no increase in stead, Nevada and Lafayette Counties by Claude Nunn, local Sinclair agent, Sinclair H. C. Gasoline, Sinclair Opaline and Pennsylvania Motor Oils arc among the nation's most popular Pc.trolcum Products. are among the most widely used in America. That they are among the best is shown by the fact that over 1,500,000 automobiles in America are driven with Sinclair gasoline each day; that 150 American railroads, whose engines travel 120,000,000 locomotive miles each year, are Sinclair lubricated throughout; that gasoline and lubricants for American Airlines whose planes fly 400,000 miles on scheduled flights each day are supplied with Sinclair. The answer is that the Sinclair Refining company has certain advantages which few other oil companies possess. The Sinclair pipeline system, for example—the cheapest mode of oil transportation—is the longest in the world. It embraces 7,000 miles of trunk liuey as well as an extensive price. Sinclair Pennsylvania Motor oil, for example, is made exclusively from Bradford Alcgheny crude which is the highest quality and most expensive of all Pennsylvania crudes. These are some of the reasons why Sinclair gasoline and motor oils are products of unusual quality and if you are not already familiar with them, U'y them at a Sinclair dealer station, all of which are identified by the Sinclair H.-C. sign, and see for yourself. Mr. Nunn acts as agent for Sinclair products, owns his own equipment employs his own personnel and is justly regarded as a local business maai. He takes this opportunity to express appreciation for your past business and to invite your continued patronage in the future. Adv. men might be committing behind Uncle Sam's back. Not for some months, anyway. While the committee differed with Nelson on his policy, it was all done in the best of spirit and in the ed the committee told the war productio boss to go ahead and do the job the way he thought t should be done. They'd back him up Opposes Biff Profits On the question of what to do about excess profits of war contractors, Nelson has equally frank theories, and he meets congressional committci. queries on this point with simple statements that while no manufacturer is entitled to unconscionable profits, every manufacturer and cvcr> workman is entitled to fair profits Where there is undue profit—anc there will be some in a lot of this war production on which there is no experience to base costs—then the contract will simply be renegotiated to reduce the profits.
