"I want to be a doctor out at the asylum." "Here—in Kings Row?" "Yes, sir." "What put that idea into your head?" "A man who works on our place." "Indeed. You«,seem to have a number of influences." Parris related the story of Lucy Carr and her death, and explained the way he had felt, even at the outset of his acquaintance with her, that there should be some way to seize her flitting mind and hold it still. • "And there's another thing, too —somebody else." Parris told Dr. Tower of Benny Singer and of old Tom Carr's theories about curing him, or at least helping him. He finished, a little disconcerted by Dr. Tower's silence. The doctor pushed the papers aside. "You ought to be a fine doctor. There's just one thing I feel a little dubious about." Parris waited. "It's your idea of coming back here to Kings Row." "Well. Tom Carr was the first one to suggest it, and then I kind of mentioned it to my grandmother, and she spoke right away to Colonel Skefflngton, and he spoke to Dr. Nolan out at the asylum." Dr. Tower laughed once more. " 'Young eagles should nest far from home.' Ever hear that?" "No, sir." "It's a good saying. There's a turious rivalry between the old (and the young. It's everywhere, but it's keener, and it's more ruthless and more cruel in the home nest, so to speak." * * * J.JE had seen Cassandra several times this year—"whenever she could slip away," as she said. He had never felt any uncase of conscience about it. Those meetings with Cassandra were in a world apart. Cassandra! He could not precisely say to himself how he felt about her. He knew exactly how he felt about Rence—still. He knew how he felt about Drake, and almost anyone he knew well. But, Cassie. That was a different relationship. Just now he was once more aware of the disastrous consequences that might follow if Dr. Tower so much as suspected any- thing. There was a quality of threat about the man that was not comfortable to contemplate. hurried toward home. He was nearly at the end ol Federal street when Drake overtook him. "Hop in. I'll drive you home. I got something for you." "Oh." Parris' exclamation was dull and disinterested; "Is that the way you receive a note from your sweetheart?" Parris read the few lines hurriedly. "She wants to sec me at your house tonight." "Don't you want to?" "I just can't see her tonight." "What's the matter with that gal, anyhow?" "She's just— well, strange, Drake. Cassie — gee, I feel terrible talking about her like this. You know I wouldn't to anybody else. But she frightens me, sometimes. She's so — intense." "I know." "She's pretty swell, Drake." "Maybe a little crazy. Like her old man. Else why would he try to keep her locked up at home like he does?" Parris thinned his lips. "He's not crazy, Drake. He's more intelligent than all of Aberdeen College put together." "All the same, there's something pretty funny about that house. And old Cass — you just now said yourself . . ." "All right, all right. But I can't see her tonight. And I haven't got any way to let her know." "I'll just tell her you couldn't come." "It's my grandmother I'm worried about, Drake." "Well, you're not her doctor — not yet." Anna listened carefully to Parris. She controlled her face and answered him calmly, remembering Madame's warning. "To tell you the truth, Parris, Madame did see Dr. Ladd." "Consultation?" "Yes. Dr. Gordon thought she ought, too. There's no use denying she ain't been so . well, but she's better. Don't you think she looks belter?" "No." "Madame's not so young, Parris, and little things get wrong with you when you get older. But you shouldn't worry now." He felt mightily relieved. "All right. I guess I just got a little worried when Dr. Tower said he thought she didn't look so well." "She's had a little cold, you know. That pulls a body down, too. Look, Parris. The cookies are done." Parris grinned. "And a glass of milk!" "Good. I get it right away." "I've got to telephone, too. I'll be right back." * * * pARRIS was invaded by the strangest discomfort he had ever known. He was unable to analyze it, but he knew it was more acute and arose from deeper sources than the normal unrest of spring. He roamed the place from end to end. Madame von Eln observed his restlessness. So did Anna. "Anna, what is the matter with Parris? He seems unlike himself these days." "Yes, Madame, I have been watching him. He no sooner comes in than he goes: out again." "Where is he now?" "Up there at the beginning of the orchard. He's standing there looking at a tree." "A tree? Looking at a tree, did you say?" "Yes, Madame." "Anna, I understand you less and less each minute. Of course he looks at things. How could he avoid looking at things? Come now, what are you talking about?" "It is peculiar. He walks all over the place; he looks at the sky and at the ground and at the trees. He picks up a stone and stares at it as if it were strange, then drops it and picks up another." "Anna, maybe there is a girl!" "I don't think so." "What is the matter with this young gentleman, then?" "I think he is in love—" "But you said—" "Oh, not with a girl, Madame, but here—with this place." "I have no idea what you are talking about." "It is this. I think Parris feels something. I think he does not know what it is. I think he feels change. I think he is afraid something is to happen and he does not understand. Oh, Madame, you know I have watched him grow every day of his life. I feel, in here, sometimes just what he feels. I think he cannot help but see that you are not well—" Madame was silent for several minutes. Anna kept her hands tightly twisted in her apron. "You were saying, Anna, that he is in love with this place." "Yes, of course. It is home. Madame, I remember it well, when I knew I was to leave my home forever, I could not see it enough. T looked at every bush, every little leaf. It is like that. Madame, with Parris." The Capital in Wartime No End to Red Tape Stories in Washington By JACK STINNETT WASHINGTON - The capital in war lime: There's no end to the red tape stories told around here now, but I like the one that happened to me the other day. I had called one of Leon Henderson's bright boys to ask a simple question. He referred me to one of his co-owrkers. "You can get him," he said, "by calling Republic 7500 and asking for extension 6702, 6753, or 6724 or 4382 or—oh, well, he has two or three more, but you should be able to get him on one of those if you'll just be patient." Washington taxi cab drivers have a world-wide reputation for being more talkative, in a friendly way, than the proverbial barbers, but there is a motorman on one Pennsylvania avenue trolley that is stealing their stuff. Coming down the other morning, he sang out merrily: "Twelfth street and the avenue. The Internal Revenue department. Pay your income tax." Archibald MacLcish, the poet who heads the office of facts and figures, is earning a reputation as a phrase- coiner. His latest. "The Borgia Bund" —a description of enemy radio propagandists who seek to poison the minds of the United Nations against one another. MacLeish says the technique is as old as Satan. One minute. Suddenly, over at Leon Henderson's OPA and in the offices of the War Production Board, the jalopy graveyards have become one of the important subjects of daily discussion. So much so, that Henderson has seen fit to slap a price schedule on them. How many thousands of tons oi scrap iron and steel are buried in these junk heaps, no one knows—but it is so much that the ordinarily affable Henderson has issued violent warning that he'll have no grave robbers speculating in those rusty skeletons. We, theWomen Being Just a Housewife May Be A Woman's Most Import War Service By RUTH MILLETT A lot of women are doing war work —and some of them are over-doing it. Young Mrs. Smith is. She has a home, a husband, and three children and taking care of them is about all she can manage, if she does the job well. But as soon as war was declared, Mrs. Smith began to look clown her nose at herself because there she was, an intelligent young woman doing absolutely nothing to help win the war. She haled feeling so useless and so inadequate, so she joined several groups doing war work. She likes the work and enjoys the feeling of satisfaction it gives her. Now, she figures, she is doing her part. But is she? In order, to take on as much outside work as she has, it has been necessary for her to devote less time to her family. She often isn't at home when her seven-year-old boy gets home from school, and there is no one to welcome him but the the ether Borgias arc on the air | Jf irl who ponies in to stay with the whispering lies to the United States about England, South America or Australia; a minute later, they are broadcasting similar poison to those younger children.

The Important Job Is at Home Furthermore, she isn't as ready as she used to be to play a two-handed game of cards with her husband or go out with him to a movie. She is just tired these evenings, and besides there is always something she feels she should be doing—like telephoning her committee members to arrange a meeting. Young Mrs. Smith could manage a little war work without neglecting her family in any way. But she can't manage as much as a woman with no children or woman whose children are grown and out of the way. And, indeed, she is foolish to try it. Her most important job today is right a home—and she can contribute most to the war effort by doing that job well. New under-arm Cream Deodorant safely Stops Perspiration 1.

Rejects Deferment Ever since the peacetime draft began, Hollywood has been wondering how much manpower it must give up, and whether the movies might be considered an essential industry. Now the selective service director has okayed deferments for those "who cannot be replaced because of the shortage of persons of their qualifications and skill and whose removal would cause a serious loss of effectiveness." Directors of the Screen Actors' uild, in a surge of militanco tinged tvith modesty, now reject this ruing so far as players are concern- id, want it known that actors have had 10 part in seeking draft deferment, ind declare that no actor is irre- ilaceablc in Hollywood. Some executives alrnady have start- id wringing their hands in anti- lipation of the loss of more big box office names. Others arc pointing out here is nothing in the deferment uling to prevent voluntary enlistment jy any star, director, writer, technical! or anyone else who wants a whack it a Jap. Flustered Customs The government recently set up •igid censorship for examination of all films leaving or entering the United States, and one of the first jobs n this region was inspection of a 'lock of disjointed stuff shot in Mcx- co for a new Orson Welles picture. A customs official, unacquainted with -follywood methods, got pretty excited when lie saw it and communicated lis suspicion to Washington that the stuff must contain propaganda or a liddon code because some of the scenes had photographed 10 or 15 times almost identically. He knows now that he was vicw- ng uncut rushes, just the sort of material from v/liich movies arc being assembled every day at every studio. Arkansas Has Title Chance Razorbacks Take on Texas Christian This Week-End FAYETTEVILLE - It will be an all- out offense and defense by the University of Arkansas Razorbacks when they engage the Horned Frogs of Texas Christian University in the final basketball games of the season here February 27 and 28. Tied with Rice for the Southwest Conference leadership, with two losses, Coach Glen Rose's crippled squad will have to win both games to gain a tie, since Rice is not conceded much chance of losing either of its two remaining games, one with Baylor Feb. 24, and the final with Texas Fob. 28. Rice and Texas are the two conference teams that were able t win one game each from Arkansas this season. The Christians have lost four games this season after a fast start, but are considered a serious threat to Arkansas' hopes, especially in view of the poor condition of the local squad. Clayton Wynne, 200-pound starting guard, who missed the last Texas A. and M. game and the two contests with Texas, is expected to be able to play a part of at least the last game, Coach Rose said. Wynne has been suffering from an injured knee and the loss of this towering guajrd was a serious blow to the already depleted squad. Wynne did not make the trip to Tulsa February 24 where the Razorbacks engaged the University of Tulsa in a postponed game, as a preliminary to the T. C. U. contests. He was able to discard his crutches this week, however, and engage in light practice. "I hope to be able to use him for at least a few minutes in one or both of the games to relieve some of the other boys," Rose said. Games Friday and Saturday will begin at 7:30 war time with the "Sears Boys," Carl and "Ziggy" officiating. Adams and Honea at forwards, Pitts and Bradley at guards, and Carpenter at center, is expected to be the starting lineup for Arkansas. HURRY TO THIS BIG SALE!
