RUSSIA'S ROUGH RIDERS Unemployment Bill Is WPA Appropriation Request Lost in Committee WASHINGTON - President Roosevelt's request for federal aid to help war-displaced workers was refused by a house committee for a second time Tuesday and sponsors conceded "it's dead" now. By a vote of 7 to 5, the Deficiency Appropriations Subcommittee refused k> approve a special ?100,000,000 WPA appropriation which the presU dent recommended last Wednesday to provide jobs for persons temporarily unemployed while factories are converted from peacetime to arms production. The majority of the subcommittee was said to have taken the view the problem is localized in an area surrounding Detroit, that federal aid would involve special treatment for one class of workers and that state unemployment compensation funds are adequate to meet this situation.

Buck, which will undoubtedably bo ranked permanently as one of the author's best works, is now on the rental shelf of the Hempstead county library. In her first fvie novels of China in 3 years, Peurl Buck writes once more in the mood and vein of "The Good Earth" and "The Mother." Like them it deals with plain ijeople living close to the soil of China, now trodden by the invaders—with Ling Tan, who would not leave his land; his bold sons, the lovely and wilful Jade; guerrillas, traitors, rulers, and the ruled by unruly patriots of a great race—heroic families, who, in spile of invasion looting and oppression refuse to be driven from their homes and their lands.

ORDERS FROM VIENNA CHAPTER XXV •J^HE next afternoon Mr. Patterson Lawes at the Burton County Bank carefully polished his glasses and reread the cablegram that had been handed to him. Mr. Carter, the assistant cashier, came out of the vault. "What's up?" "That young Mitchell—trying to be a fool." "Yes?" "Cabled orders to turn over that —you know, the Tower estate that was left to him, to Drake McHugh." * * * Plus.... Latest shade, pore and made small rustling noises. Drake spoke finally. "It's no use, Randy, you've got to talk to me sooner or later. Might as well be now." "How would you like It if something happened to Parris and he didn't let you know?" Drake hesitated. "I don't know. I hadn't thought of it." "Well, it's the same thing. Drake, he's your best friend." Drake picked up the message from the counterpane. He had almost worn it out since yesterday reading and rereading it. d ",9 ee . he's a great friend, Ran"Of course." "But—" "But what, now? What?" "This last sentence." "Yes, I know. What about it?" ' 'You and Randy stick together till I get there. We'll work everything out.'" "I know it by heart," she said softly. "Of course he doesn't understand." 'Doesn't understand what? What are you driving at, Drake?" She waited. He did not notice how pale she had become. "I tell you, Randy, I—I remembered that if you had just a little entirely to me for a while until you are well and—" She bit her hp sharply. "But you see, honey—I can't ever be 'well,' as you say." "Drake, I'm going to tell you something, and I want you to listen until I have finished. It's first of all about what Parris said in that cablegram: 'You and Randy stick together till I get there' We're going to do that. But I made up my own mind about that long before this—happened. Then after you got hurt I just had to think of how—that was all. Do you remember one time you said something about marrying me? W """ T "-•"•"- fun of the'jidea her•a , i * -»-:-«" I ' d i be S» l g lUtle hur{. But later on when you came down here—remember the morning you came to ask Pa to help you get a job? I made up my mind that day that I'd marry you as soon as the right time came around I knew I wanted to marry you—" Drake flung his arms across his lace, but Randy went on evenly "We'll get married, any time now, and then we'll work out some way what we'll do afterward." He laid the papers on the table and explained briefly their purport. Randy listened with an increasing dismay. "I shall leave these with you. er—Mrs. McHugh." Randy shook her head. "I don't know how Drake is going to take this, I'm so afraid he may think I asked Parris for help." Mr, Lawes rubbed the back of, his head. He was completely perplexed, * * * «T DON'T know, Randy, I just don't know what to say." Spots of high color stood out on Drake's thin cheeks. Randy was disturbed, by his. agitation. : Drake raised his arms clutched the head of the and bed money there—" His voice faded. I ve heard there was homes you could get into—maybe." "Would you—would you deliberately treat me that way, and Parris, too?" "I—I don't—" Drake was looking at Randy with an expression half desperate with his own emotion, and half a puzzled concern for her. "Then listen carefully. Whatever you say, or however you feel —it's you and me hereafter—together—somehow." The expression went out of Drake's face. * "I want you to trust yourseU - - v.« ui me utru. Then he turned his face to the wall again, but one hand reached out for hers. * * * r pHREE days later Randy was hurrying about her housekeeping when Mr. Lawes called. "I am Patterson Lawes. I believe Mr. Drake McHugh is here at present." "I think Drake would want me to deal with it—whatever it is " Mr. Lawes reached for his leather despatch case. "I hardly think so, Miss—er " "I am Mrs. Drake McHugh, Mr. Lawes." "I hadn't been advised of that, Mrs. McHugh." He arose and bowed slightly. "I didn't know Drake was married." "We were married yesterday." "But—God bless me, the bov hasn't any legs!" "I didn't marry Drake because of his legs, Mr. Lawes. Suppose we hear about the business now?" "Well—I have here, Mrs. McHugh, a communication that should be of great interest to both of you. I suppose it will help solve some problems—if you have any," he added hastily. He looked at her sharply. "Were you expecting a communication from Mr. Parris Mitchell in Vienna?" "I expect a letter soon. I had cable from him. Drake had one also." "I see. Now, Mrs. McHugh—" , : do.ypuithmk-abotitit?" The discussion oV, Parris' offer had proved less troublesome than Randy had anticipated. Drake was not violent about it, but he was not easily convinced that he should accept it. She remembered a warning line in a second cablegram she had had from Parris: "As soon as he is well enough make him decide, things. Give 1 him full sense of independence." "I don't know what to say, Drake. We've got to look at it as a loan, not as a gift." "But what do you think I oueht to do?" "I don't know, Drake. After all, women haven't got much sense about money. You're a man and you know better than I do what's right." "But how are we ever going to pay it back, Randy?" "Well, out of whatever we make some day. As soon as you are able we've got to make some plans about what we'll do." "You think we ought just to take the money, then?" "You have to say that yourself." Drake closed his eyes and his chest sank with a sigh of weariness. "You don't have to think about it now—" "Yes I do, Randy. We'll take it. When Parris comes home maybe we can give most of it back." "Maybe so." "I believe it's the right thing. Like you say, we've got to think some way out." Drake managed a smile. "I feel better. You reckon I could learn to do fancywork, honey?" Randy did not respond to the smile. She bit her lip hard to keep back tears. "Listen, Drake. Don't ever joke like that. You're a man, and above everything else you're my man. I've loved you for a long time, but now I'm going to be proud of you." (To Be Continued). Japs Crossing Up Nazis, Belief Germans Now Trying to Buy Up Dutch Stocks LONDON-(/P)-Heavy buying of Netherlands Indies stocks in German- occupied Amsterdam was interpreted Tuesday by Aneta, Netherlands news agency, to indicate German and Dutch Nazis are seeking to keep the Japanese from acquiring economic domination of the East Indies, which they now control. The Germans have gone heavily into tiie market to buy out the stock of companies in territories now occupied by Japanese troops. The agency said the result in Amsterdam has been "unusual gains" in Indies stocks. ."It is known that when Germany invaded lolland in May, 1940, the Tazis thought Holland's Far Eastern territory would fall into their laps," Aneta said. "Dispatches from Bandoeng last week reported the belief prevalent there that the Japanese had double- crossed the Germans in invading the East Indies, that Berlin had originally counted on a Japanese attack on Soviet Siberia, rather than a drive into the southwest Pacific." Who Was That Dummy I Seen You With? NOWATA, Okla. -yp)_ Bill Estlin's wife routed him out of bed to make sure a prowler really had left the premises. Sleepily, he began looking behind doors and dark corners, and then, into a closet. A moment later sounds of combat brought Mrs. Estin running to the scene. "I've got the so-and-so," yelled Estin. "Turn on the lights." Mrs. Estlin complied, then doubled up with laughter. Her husband was locked in combat with a We, theWomen "Purchasing Power" of Self- Reliance Grows in War By RUTH MILLETT The phrase "[everything money can buy" doesn't cover as much grounc as it used to. There is a lot that money won' buy these days—and there is going to be more as the war goes on. It isn't just autmoobiles and tires and all the other things that government priorities have taken away from us. Money won't buy as much security as it used to. For instance, the boy whose family has plenty of money and who a few years ago, could have assurec him of a pretty safe and secure future, isn't any better off right now than the young man who hasn't any money behind him. • Both look alikp to a draft board and nobody is going to care which one has money and position behind him when they both get into a privates uniform. But as money buys less—some thing; are buying more. Courage will buy a lot today because it is so badly needed. Ability Always Commands Ucspect And so will tho ability to make the best of whatever conies along. In a world changing so fast that no one can safely predict what even tomorrow will bring, the person who will get along best is the person who can make something good out of what he has. Self-reliance will buy more than ever because in hard and dangerous times every person must be able to look out for himself. So it isn't queer that lately we have not been hearing so often the half- envious remark, "He has everything money can buy." Today, someone might be tempted to say, "Is THAT all?"
