Indeed, it has often been suggested that the medical profession itself by a unanimous refusal to participate in any war. whether characterized as righteous or as the saving of democracy, could end all wars. In any war it is tile doctor who must find out first which men are physically fit for service, and make the ethers fit when repairs and rehabilita- Are You Feeling Grouchy?

CHAPTER XXII "TTJO you mean," Nelda Starr asked, "that the band won't play 'The Cat's Meow' any more?" She seemed genuinely affected by Tail's news. "Perhaps in a year or two—but by that time, of course, it may not be popular at all." I've been, wanting to hear It all evening." Her glance swept Archie Mackey and Tail. "I've a record of it at my apartment. Let's go there and have a cocktail and hear the song." Mackey made a protesting gesture. "Listen, beautiful lady, I have to work. I've been to four night clubs already. It's almost midnight, and I haven't got material for a line! You take Bob and vun along." "Vv'ould you like to come, Mr. Tail?" "Very much," Bob Tail said. But there was misgiving in his ht-art when he said it. Nelda Starr was a strange young woman. He could well imagine what worry and anguish she caused old and dignified Aaron Starr. Certainly they did not get along, else why would she forsake 1he Starr mansion for an apartment of her own? And her preoccupation with swing widened. "I'd like to hear it now. "Oh, but it will!" The girl's eyes music and the song "The Cot's Meow" were almost abnormal. Tail's mind went back to I- 's visit with Leonard Macy when the latter had insisted that the addicts of swing—the jitterbugs and the ickies—were a study in abnormality. Tail had scoffed at the notion ihen, because Macy's inference had been lhat Myrna belonged to that classification. Yet here before him was a girl utterly different from Myrna Dombey. Here was a girl, neurotic and finely-spun, upon whom the world of swing had undoubtedly had effect. * * * T"\ID she actually want to hear -^the record of "The Cat's Meow" so badly that she must leave.the Golden Bowl?' 5r wag-the invitation, issued to a man she had never met before, simply a subtle build-up toward asking for n spot with the band? The questions swam through Tail's tired brain as he helped Nelda Starr with her luxurious evening wrap in the foyer of the Golden Bowl. "I have a car outside," Nelda said. That, Bob Tait was to discover. Was a masterpiece of understatement. He followed her out under the spacious marquee of the Pa- ciflc-Plaza, saw the doorman fuss with his signal box the mome«.t he recognized Nelda. Almost immediately there rolled to the curb a small car that wns like u jewel in the world of automotive engineering. It was no larger than the smallesl of lighl stock cars, but the body was of special make and the finish was bright and faultless. The attendant left the wheel and stood at attention while Nelda slid herself into the driver's seat. Slightly bewildered, Tait climbixi in beside her. "Some little bus," he said. "What is it?" She told him Ihe name of the engine and chassis, a name familiar to every driver in the world. "I designed the body myself—in the rough, of course. And Dad had it built for me. That was before we had our latest argument." "I see . . ." Tait withheld a desire to turn her over his knee and spank her. The special body, which her father "had built" for her, must have cost several times the price of an average car. Surreptitiously Tait studied her profile, and when he did so he fcr^t his instinct to punish her as a parent might punish a child. This Nelda Starr was a grown and beautiful young woman. She was wise, too wise indeed for man, us Archie Mackey had hinted. And, Tait felt sure, she was more than that. Nelda Starr was dangerous. * * * TTE could no longer detect the faint perfume which had revealed her to him among all that crowd in the Golden Bowl. His sense of smell had grown accustomed to it now. Yet, he told himself, it was Nelda who wore that perfume. It was that perfume he had caught on that night when death had missed him by the merest fluke—the anxiety of a taxi driver to be of service. Had the attacker been this slight girl beside him? And was even her seemingly harmless invitation tonight really another attempt to take his life? It was not a comfortable feeling, but it was with Bob Tait as he rode through town with the fragile, lovely Nelda in her 'car that had been built for hA and nobody else. *• "That perfume you use." ho said suddenly. "It's—so unusual. May I ask what it is?" Neldn Starr laughed. "If it isn't unusual," she said, "someone is going to get into a lot of trouble. It doesn't have n name—unless you want to call it Noldn Starr— because it was made especially for me." "Somehow," said Tait, "it suits you. It's enticing and yet—well, dangerous.*' She turned her gaze to him. "Dangerous?" "Yes. Isn't that what you wanted it to be?" Nelda Starr was silent n moment. "I suppose so." Then: "You know, that's curious that you should say that." "Curious? You mean that I should think that your perfume gives a hint of danger?" She nodded. "Yes. Lud Dom- boy told me that one day." * * * OOMEHOW the remark startled 0 Tait. Even though he told himself not to be a fool he experienced a queer chill. "It did prove dangerous, didn't it, for Lud Dombey?" That was, he knew, a reckless remark to make. But if Nelda Starr received an.y connotation beyond the words themselves she gave no sign of it. She only said, "Poor Lud." "You liked him a lot, didn't you?" Tait asked. "I was in lovo with him, if that's what you mean." "Not witli his music?" She made a turn into another street with unnecessary vigor. "I don't care for men who treat me like a child, Mr. Tait. They remind me of my father." "I'm sorry. But it does strike me that your father has been— well, rather lavish." I'That's all you know about it." She shrugged. "Of course he's given me things. Like this silly car. But when I really wanted to have something — something that meant everything to me, he'd never see it my way. When I told him I wanted to be a singer in a night club he practically died." "I think that's a very normal reaction. Singing in a night club is a tough grind—and not all the patrons are the best, you know." Nelda Starr didn't answer. She had slid the little car alongside a curb which fronted a towering apartment building. Silently Tait followed her inside, into the automatic lift. Since leaving the car she had said not a word and the next thing Tait knew they were standing in front of a door while Nelda Starr fumbled with the lock. At last she swung the door wide, and Tait looked beyond. There, past the little hallway, stood Harris Hogers! (To Be Continued) thuraday, October 27,10 STORIES IN STAMPS Forty Years of Radium For Humanity pIERRE CURIE returned to tins A university where he had labored as a student, the Soi-bonne of Paris, to begin his first professorship in physics, and almost at once he launched extensive research in electricity, the magnetic properties of bodies lit different temperatures, und similar subjects. His work led Him to the acquaintance of Mario Sklodowsfcn of Warsaw. She had received her early training under her eminent father, but had become involved in the students' revolutionary organization und found it advisable to leave her native country So she had taken n scientific degree in Paris. In 1895 she married Pierre Curie. Very shortly the couple attracted attention to their work in radio-activity. In 1H90 Henri Becquerel discovered the radioactive properties of uranium, further stimulating their research. Feverishly then they plunged into new experiments, and in November, 1898, the Curies obtained, polonium and radium from ipitch- blcnd which they had subjected to n "very laborious process of frac- tionntion." In subsequent years they did much to make use of the great property of radium and to place it at the disposal of a waiting humanity. For this great work the Curies were honored repeatedly. In 1900 F;\>fussor Curie was run down by a dray and killed in Paris. Mme. Curie then succeeded him as professor at the Paris university, went on to win more distinction. The famous scientists are honored here on a current French .stamp marking 40 years of radium achievement. . IMS. NRA Si-rvlei 1 . lru>. utes the other day.

The Yr.edical profession prevents the epidemics which in the past have destroyed more soldiers than were killed by gunpowder and shells. In ancient wars great plagues of cholera and bubonic plague would destroy whole armies of men. In the middle ages syphilis used to sweep through great armies and incapacitate thousands. In our Civil War typhoid killed more men thart'were lost in battle. In the Spanish American war typhoid and yellow fever destroyed many. Even in the World War meningitis, pneumonia, and at last the devastating influenza, took a terrific toll of lives. When the wars end, it is the medical profession which repairs the ravages by restoring the physically disabled and conferring upon the veteran the opportunity to live again. Now comes the question of what can be done for those who have lost their sight or their hearing. Particularly serious nowadays are the mentally shocked cases who find themselves haunted by their terrors. And long after the wars have passed, the veterans who develop tuberculosis, cancer, and chronic diseases resulting from long sustained injuries demand medical care. During any great war the organization of' the meclcal profession for service is a first necessary step. In the last great war the American medical profession had more than forty thousand physicians associated with troops, serving on draft boards, manning base hospitals, and taking care of the veterans. In Great Britain the doctors have already indicated whether or not they can serve, and the particular work of which each is capable. Mrs. Simpkins; "Listen to me, I'm sick and tired of hearing you talk, about 'my car' and 'my furniture' and 'my son.' It's getting on my nerves and you're going to learn how to say 'our.' What are you looking for now in that closet?" Mr. Simpkins: "Our pants." Did This Start the Name-Calling? A new rash of riots has broken out in Jerusalem.
