The letter had colfte two days ago, and she had read it a dozen times, but she returned to it again ahd again for the warmth and comfort, the sense of security and safety that she derived from It. "I am sure .that you have already made Drake feel that he Is needed and wanted in the world. 1 am writing him in this same post that he is cdrtainly needed and important in my life. \Ve can't give htm legs, but we Can keep his mind and personality, and soul,, if you wish to call it that, whole and well. "I recalled last night that a long time ago Drake talked of real estate projects of some kind, I don't remember just what the ideas were. The main point is to get his mind going on something definitely constructive. "Drake has been more than a brother to me, and from this moment on you are more than my sister. In you two I feel that I have more than a professional reason for coming back to Kings Row. You know, of course, that I have always hoped for an an- pointment at the State Hospital for the Insane. I have kept Dr. Nolan informed of my progress. He has promised to recommend my appointment when I have finished my work here in Vienna." Randy folded the thin sheets of paper carefully. It was strange, she thought, how well she knew Parris Mitchell. * * * /GRADUALLY, as the ••ftreeks ^-^ went by, Randy pressed the suggestions Parris had made in his first letter. She was amazed to see how Drake fell more and more easily into the pattern she so carefully planned. One day, following her carefully disguised leads, Drake recalled the old project for reclaiming the creek-bottom lands nearby. He alighted upon it with joy. He had begun from that day to move toward a normal life. Sometimes, as Randy studied the sharp-cut profile, it seemed as though this catastrophe had burned Drake clear of every trait that had been a little careless and coarse. "I'm going to move you downstairs next week, Drake." He frowned. "Where?" "The front room. That's going to be our living room, and' the little room off to the side that never has been anything but a storeroom will be our bedroom." He thought a moment. "It sounds pleasant." "Thefe is just Oh* froht win* dow. It Iboks into the front yard. There's ft bif c&iar tr«* outside, and across the road you dart See around Harper's Mill oh out into the country. lt»s Quieter, too. You don't hear the switdh engines as you do back h»e." Drake's face ebhtfacted suddenly. "I'll be glad to get where I don't hear them so plain. Sometimes I dream—I guess I'll always have dreams like that." "I don't think so, Drake." Randy spoke very calmly, but her chest Was tight. "You'll have a lot of other things to think about." "Randy!" "Remember this always. You've had a terrible accident and all that, but you're just Drake McHugh. You're no different. You can arrange your life anyway you want to. I'm here to see that it's done the way you want it, but— you are Drake, and I love you. Do I have to tell you that every day?" * • * '"THE late-afternoon train clanked and rattled its smoky, grimy way from Camperville towards Kings Row. The passengers sat in the antiquated coach, avoiding, as much as possible, the touch of the gritty, red-plush seats. They wore a look of patient misery—all but one. He was a young man who had stepped from the Chicago express just in time to catch the Kings Row local. At the station he looked with some surprise at the new brick building. "Hack, sir?" "Why—the Central Hotel. There is still a Central Hotel, I suppose?" "Yes, sirree. Only one, in fact. Dis way, suh." The rather decrepit hack swung around the corner and clattered along lower Union street. At the hotel desk, a thin mousy- looking clerk bowed with an imitation of briskness. 'I'd like a suite, please." •Suite?" 'Yes. Sitting room, bedroom, bath." "Well—we haven't exactly got ;hat kind of an arrangement, I could throw two rooms together for you." He watched as the newcomer wrote: "Dr. Parris Mitchell, Vienna." The clerk turned the register around, wrote a number opposite ;he name. "Here, boy, take Dr. Mitchell's baggage to 217. Going to go into practice here, Doc?" "At the State Hospital." "Sure enough! Doctor at the asylum, eh? Well, well." "Send the baggage up. I'm gong out first to—to look around." Out oh the sidewalk Phrrls stopped and slowly drew on his gloves. Two men sittlhg itt split- bottom roafclng chairs just outside the h6tel door stared and glanced at each other. When Parris Walked away, one of them spoke slowly. "Say, did you see that fellow, putting on gloves?" "Gloves—in August!" "Dr. Mitchell. Used to live here. Parris Mitchell." "What's he wearing gloves for?" "He's been living over in Europe —in Vienna, for five years. Maybe that's the style over there. Going to be a doctor over at the asylum." "Well, now! Government job to start off on?" "Yep." • * • pARRIS walked across the square. At the corner he paused and thought a moment. Yes, Cedar street, that was the shortest way to Randy's house. He had thought so often of coming home. Now he was here. This was Kings Row. He looked east and west on the cross street. This shabby, dingy-looking street, this —village. A strange heaviness settled on his heart, and with it came a quick, keen wave of homesickness for Vienna. Vienna had meant friends, a comfortable something that was almost home —Vienna was—he shook himself free of the thoughts. "Parris!" "Randy—my dear!" "Oh, Parris, I'm so glad to see you!" Randy had just started out when she met Parris. She swung ;he white-painted gate open again. "Come on in. Drake will be crazy, he'll be so glad to see you." "How is he?" Parris caught her arm and held back as they came to the door. "How is he really?" Randy looked away, thea back again. Her eyes dimmed a little. 'I don't really know, Parris. I don't really know. He seems— more like himself lately. But I can't tell." Randy opened the door. Parris held tight to Drake's hand and looked down into the deeply shadowed eyes. "Drake." Drake moved his lips, but no word came. His face was like a mask of thin stone. He shifted a little like an embarrassed child and turned his face away. Parris sat down on. the edge of the bed and laid his cheek hard against Drake's. Randy backed out of the door and closed it behind her. She went to the kitchen and sat down in a low chair behind the stove. (To Be Continued) usual in some cases. For this reason, the county agent declared, Hempstead county^ farmers should estimate their fertilizer needs earlier than usual and place their orders. This will also offset the disadvantages of unavoidable delays, and will permit the farmer to obtain substitutes for fertilizer materials which are not available. In an attempt to prevent an inflation in the price of fertilizer, according to County Agent Adams, the United States government has "frozen" the price of mixed fertilizers, superphosphate, and potash. In effect, he explained, this freezinf order forbids the retail sale of these fertilizers at a price higher than the price charged by the retailer for a 5-day period from February ' 16-20, inclusive, and affects all sales of these fertilizers amounting to 250 pounds or over. Some similar attempt at stabilizing the price of nitrogen materials such as nitrate of soda, sulfate of ammonia, and cyanamid is expected within a short time, he said. WASHINGTON - Ultimate con-®- sumers of news—meaning you all— may have your understanding and appreciation of censorship all gummed up by fear of a thing you might call propaganda for home consumption. To have certain military information of possible value to the enemy withheld is one thing. That's necessary and okay with most people. But when this incomplete picture is cluttered up with extra trimmings which are applied for the purpose of hypnotizing you into a psychological belief that the scene is prettier than it really is that's something else again.

If good or bad news is held up for a time, then released at some psychological moment so that the good news makes you feel better or the bad news is buried by other good news, then the customers start complaining. For examples: A good many people thought, and some still think, that the news of Pearl Harbor was deliberately doctored to deceive the American people. The President had to spike that one. Again, the rumor got round in some cities that the Navy had held up details of the first big raid on Gilbert and Marshall Islands from Feb. 1, when the raid took place, and released Feb. 12 to offset the bad news from Singapore. The answer to this one was that the details were not given until after the raiders got back to Pearl Harbor because to have radioed the news sooner would have given away the location of the raiding ships and their route home. Communiques Ok~y Navy policy on announcing submarine attacks and sinkings has also been questioned. When a submarine sinks a U. S. vessel, under the present ruling, that's news, but when a U. S. vessel sinks, a submarine, that's a naval secret. The theory here is that if axis powers don't know the fate of their unheard-from submarines it makes the operations of sub fleet commanders that much more difficult and it breaks up the morale of the enemy submarine crews. This experience stems from the last war when German crews finally refused to go to sea. The news policy on sinkings is now under review, however, and may be changed in some way, such as permitting the announcement of submarine sinkings a week after they occur. Army and Navy communiques, the day to day news reports of the actual war uevelopments are, as a matter of fact, free from any propaganda control. The communiques are written by a colonel for the Army and a commander for the Navy. They clear their information with each other, information which comes in once or twice a day from commanders in the several theaters of operations. Two or three hours after the reports are in, they have been decoded, rewritten passed by the general and admiral in charge of press, and issued. There are times when, if the com- munique contains hot news from one sector, secondary news from another eonunajiu may be held up for u day or two when there is a lull. Something to Watch The one government agency which has potentialities for propagandizing news for domestic consumption is the Office of Facts and Figures, and it must work largely by remote control in shaping the policies of other agencies handing out war information. OFFs announced policy is to give the American people a true picture of the war effort. If it sticks to that policy, well and good. War and Navy Department and the Office of Censorship are tied in with OFF's Inter-depavt- mental Committee on War Information, but the OFF control over the services policy on news is negligible, and the Office of Censorship is steering miles away from anything that resembles propaganda. Office of Censorship may have to oruer some news withheld, but it won't color what news is given out. Far more to be feared than any potential propagandizing of the war news is another development of recent date. This is the so-called war secrets bill prepared by the Department of Justice and now before the Judiciary Committees of the House and Senate. The purpose of this bill is to prevent the leaks of war secrets, of which there have been a number. The bill would provide a 55000 fine" or two- year imprisonment for anyone furnishing or publishing "Any file, instrument letter memorandium, book, pamphlet, picture plan, recoru or other writing in the custody of the United 'States," which any government official had declared secret. Under the bill, any government official could make a record of graft, abcl it "secret" and prevent its publication. The proposed law is not anything to worry about yet, as congress will probably tear it to pieces. But it is something to watch, if you're interested in getting any kind of an accurate picture of what this war is all about.
