Veteran in the Fight Mrs. Boole, widow of a Brooklyn Methodist minister, has been battl» ing for prohibition for years. As vicf president of the National WCTU shs. was in the thick of the fight that brought the Eighteenth Amendment. As president she waged the battle against its repeal. Today, after a siege with pneumonia, she marshals her arguments as clearly as she did in her early crusading days. "During World War No. 1," she says, "a five mile dry zone was established around each camp and fort and no liquor could be sold to men in soldier's uniform. These regulations showed that we don't have to have liquor to win the war. "But these laws have been repealed and in this war the sale of liquor in training camp territory is legalized under state laws. Accurate surveys show that the men have been exploited—urged to come in on the grounds that there was nowhere else .to go. I is to protect the men in service tha the Sheppard Bill is being promoted. .."There are some other things ti consider too. The public has been warned against the disclosure of wa secrets. But alcoholic beverages loos en tongues and war secrets may b disclosed by drinking men." Mrs. Sheppard—tall, white-hairec and chic—rand no relative of the sena tor who introduced the bill is th wife of a New York lawyer. For 1 years she served as Chairman of Socia Service at St. Luke's Hospital. "The work our social workers -did with people in tenaments where there were often speak-easies and stills, convinced me that prohibition would not work" she says. In 1929 Mrs. Sheppard headed the women's organization of the campaign for repeal in New York State and in 1933 took her present job. Sees Greater Evil "You can't stop people drinking by aw," she says. "They'll drink anyway. If liquor cannot be sold legal- y within certain area around camps t is sure to be sold illegally. "I have two grandsons who have enlisted and I am especially interested in this question. I believe the boys are safer if there are supervised licensed places near camp than if, in so-called dry zones, liquor is illegally sold by bootleggers. "We now have a lot of licensed jlaces in camp areas. They must be licensed every year and we don't issue any new licenses until we have consulted the commanding officer of the camp."

They said Connie Mack's club could not have been worse, but it is. Mr. Mack's best outfielder, Sam Chapman, is in the service. So nrc Shortstop Al Brancato, Infielders Bonny McCoy and Joe Gantcnbcin and the promising southpnw pitches Porter Vaughan. Aggressive Wally Moses was traded o the White Sox for Mike Krccvich. The latter will fill Sam Chapman's place in center field acceptably, but Kit no more than .232 last season. Mr. Mack has a.skillful catcher in Frank Hayes, and may get some pitching out of Phil Marchlldon, Bill Beckman, Jack Hallett, Luman Harris, Jack Knott, Lester McCrabb and two or three recruits. Russ Christopher was declared one of the three best pitchers in the International League in 1941. Fred Caligiuri bent Cleveland and Boston after bagging 16 and losing 7 for Wilmington. Dick Fowler broke even in 10 games with a weak Toronto aggregation. Roger Wolff, weighing 208, copped 16 and lost 9 in the Eastern Leaue prior to dropping 5 three-hit performance to Washington. •Mr. Mack's infield has been shot full of holes. Dick Sicbert, a crack first baseman, must be satisfied financially. Benny McCoy is in the Navy. Budd Blair is listed for third base, j He has been a Yankee chattel for I several seasons, but has been handicapped b a trick knee. Right now at La Palma Park, Anaheim, Calif., Mr. Mack is using two second base combinations—Jack Wal- lac.sa and Davis and cPte Suder and Al Rubcling. •Suder was last year's third baseman. Rubeling is a reformed third baseman Cardinals, Spe'ftl 1941 with Wilmington.' "Good field, no heel" covers him. Outfield Outlook Not Encouraging Mr. Mack still hns Bob Johnson and his home 1 run ball in the outfield, but the club is going to miss Snm Chapman's wallop. Johnson will take cure of the left field side of Mike Krec- vich. Fleet Eddie Collins, Jr., and Dee Miles nrc "back. Any additional help will have to come from Elmer Valo, Gordon Donaldson and Felix Machiewicz. Valo batted .420 for the A's in 15 games after hitting .324 for Wilmington. Donaldson batted no more 'than .284 in the Texas League. Mackiewicz could not top .289 in the Inte'r-Stnte League, but drove in 81 runs and led the loop with 16 triples. He's a big bloke. There is to bo more night ball this year, but the only way they can make the A's look good is b dousing the glims, Thc're that bad.

GORDON sat in his living • room with a tray 'aefore him. He ate slowly, almost absently. The door opened so slowly and so silently that he did not notice Louise's entrance, "Father!" Louise spoke in a jcurious flat, colorless voice. "What's the matter?" "I—I heard about Drake Mc- SHugh." "Um." The doctor turned his attention to his food. "I stood it as long as I could, then I went down to the—rail- xoad." "That will do, Louise. It was most unbecoming of you to go about parading your feelings— Whatever they happen to be." "Father!" Louise stared stony- ifaced at Dr. Gordon. The girl shook now so violently she could scarcely stand. "You monster!" "Louise!" "You fiend!" Dr. Gordon arose, laid His nap•kin on the table, and with the utmost deliberation struck her. "I'll let the world know wha you are, if it's the only thing I ever do in this world. Tomorrow —tomorrow—I'll tell everyone. I know what you are. I know al about you—and your operations.' Dr. Gordon took her by both iarms. "You are going to bed—a once." "I will tell. I will tell. I wil tell—" Louise began a sort o singsong chant that rose suddenj .to a shriek. Dr. Gordon struck her again, a sharp, stinging slap that cut he pcreams short. "Louise—this is enough of your willful tantrum now. If you per sist, there is one thing I shall hav to do—" He waited. She stared at him half listening, then suddenly aler "What?" she whispered. "If you utter one more word o the kind of nonsense I've hear from you I shall—commit you fc the insane asylum." Louise backed away, "Yo wouldn't dare!" "I have only to call Dr. Nola on that telephone there in the hal and have you in a cell—behin bars—in one hour. Now, can yo get that through your head?" Louise swallowed hard. "I—I'll go," she said. "That's better. And stay in your room until I say you can com out." Louise nodded her head like small child who only half under stands what is being said. Sh backed, toward the door, three days Randy scarcely 1 slept. She felt that she dared ot leave Drake. She knew that he had to be with him when he ound out what had happened. Randy set her foot on the first :ep, and paused. She stood for everal minutes leaning her head gainst the door frame. It was hen that the dreadful sound came rom that upper room. She tore up the narrow stair- ase and flung the door open. "Drake!" Drake's eyes were rolling and tis face worked violently as if the •cry bone structure had been hattered. Randy saw with a sick icrror that his hands were grop- ng frantically under the blankets. She almost leapt across the room and seized his hands. "Drake! Drake!" "Randy — where — Where's the •est of me?" His voice rose to a iharp wail. "Hush, Drake. I'm here with you. You'll get well, now." He held hard to her shoulders, rittle by little he quieted, "It was that accident?" "Yes, Drake. But don't txy to talk about it yet. You'll get well now." His grasp loosened. She looked fearfully at him. He was quieter now. Very slowly he turned his face to the wall. * * * "DANDY turned away from the v window where she had been standing. The frost-rimmec squares of glass gave a distorted vision of the still cold day, She felt that her mind was like tha wavy glass. She had no true pictures of anything. « She went into the kitchen. Her father had come in and had taken off his shoes to warm his feet a the oven door. "Going somewhere, Randy?" "Yes, I've got to get out for a while." "Is Drake asleep?" "I don't know. The nurse is up there." "How long is she going to stay?' "Dr. Gordon said Drak wouldn't have to have her after next Monday." "How's he going to make ou then?" The sound of her father's word: cleared something in Randy': brain. Her face cleared, too. Thi quivering uncertainty disappeared A simple resolution replaced it. "What's the matter, Randy Change your mind?" "Yes. I don't need tq go ou now." '•What's thai?" "I said I don't need to go now know now." She spoke the last ihrase half to herself. "What is it, daughter? What's n your mind?" "I didn't know what to do. I :now now what I'm going to do." Mr. Monaghan kept his eyes down. He didn't want her to see low much he pitied her. Mr. Monaghan stood up. His jaunt, bony figure towered above • ler. His shaggy white hair almost ouched the low kitchen ceiling. 'Randy, you want to keep Drake here, don't you?" Very slowly her eyes filled with ears. Very slowly her hand re- axed. She did not make a sound but' let herself sway and lean against her father's breast as he reached out and put his arms around her. "Come on, now, and set down. How we going to fix it up, you reckon?" She shook her head. She was not able to speak, They sat in silence for a time. Then Mr. Monaghan spoke. "Now you listen to me. daughter." "All right." "I never said anything to you about Drake when he began coming around here. I—I just didn't know what to think. I feel awful bad that everything's turned out this way, but we got to take everything as it comes. Now, like I asked you a while ago, how we going to fix this up?" "I guess I know what you mean. I'm going to marry Drake." "Is that the way you want to do H?" "I've got to convince him, some way. I'll think it out." "Now look here. There's one thing. There's just me. So this house is yours, anyhow. I saved a little money. Ain't any of us going to starve." "I'll think of something. First of all, I'm going to send a cable to Parris Mitchell. There's been enough of this foolishness." "You ought to let Mitchell know, I think." Randy dressed again and went out. It was horribly cold, but she scarcely noticed it. She was excited, and terrified, too. How Drake could be managed was the real question. He'd be mad, no doubt, about letting Parris know, but she was certain that she should. She wrote carefully, crossing out words, and finally rewrote the whole message. It was a succinct but full account of the loss of Drake's money, and the accident. She bit the eraser in the pencil for a moment or two, and added: "I must keep him with me £ome_<- how." NOTICE • • • • W. B.

You wouldn't expect the delivery boy to deliver a grand piano. Newspaper advertising is like that. It delivers messages. The amount of space you use for your message depends on the kind of message you have to deliver— and there is newspaper advertising space for any kind of message* ' The farmer with a cow for tele can get his message across in the classified columns. The dry-goods merchant needs sev* era! columns of display space to show the many things he has to sell. ft A big department store is really many stores in one. Each department really is a store. A department store may take as much as a whole section — many pages — of a newspaper to advertise its wares. Thus, you see, the newspaper is a messenger that can do the job of the delivery boy or the 10-ton truck. It can deliver messages of any size from one line in the classified columns to* many pages of display space. Newspaper advertising is flexible— can be fitted, to the needs of anyone with a message to deliver, Messenger boys get tired But newspapers go on delivering their advertisers* messages, tirelessly, forcefully, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year. Thus newspapers can do more than make sure that their messages are delivered. By repetition they can make sure that their messages are read, remembered, accepted.
