M. Drinnt, North Washington street, with Mrs. T. R. Billingsley us joint hostess and Mrs. Arcli Moore lending the .study on "The Oregon Trull." beginning with the opening up of (he Northwestern Country through the Lewis and Clark Expedition, with most interesting historical fncts brought out by Mrs. J. A. Henry followed by Mrs. C. M, Agee who further di.scus.sctl the Oregon Trail, so filled with historical interest, placing the people who blazed the wuy, among the United States most interesting pioneers. Mrs. Moore closed the pro- groin with excerpts from "The Don- ncr Party" who made this trip west .suffering untold htirtlshtps before com- plcting their journey. Mrs. Moore's talk proved very interesting with family rominiscLMice, Mrs. Donncr being the groat, great grandmother of Mr. Moore, a piece of chine that made the journey, being now in the possession of the Moore family. The roll call re- fponses on current events at each meeting, also prove most interesting and informative. The busniess meeting was conducted by the president, Mrs. Hugh Smith. For the occasion, the Briant home was most inviting with its decorations of fall flowers, Including lovely roses, nfid chrysanthemums. Following the' program, the hostesses served n tempting sandwich course, with hot coffee and cnke srnmros.

Although the deck steward had planned games in the club room for the enthertainmenl of the passengers, he had to call them off, for everyone crowded the decks to sec the sublime sunset on the Inside Passage. It took place officially that night at 9:33, and it was still quite light at 11. It was about six weeks past the summer solstice, so the days were getting shorter. The sun came up about 3:30, and by 5 I was up, loo. The early morning air was quite chilly, as I did my fifteen rounds of the promenade deck. The passage was narrower, and the mountains higher. Frothy white water falls laced the sides of the mountains, formed by the melting snow above. About noon we sighted Douglas Island ahead on the west, and soon we entered the Bastineau channel. The approach to Juneau, along the Gastineau Channel is very beautiful. Juneau is nestled at the base of two groat, heavily timbered mountains, Mt. Juneau and Mt. Roberts.

"Why shouldn't I come here?" Tait heard Weeks ask. "I've been pulling chestnuts out of the fire for you long enough!" "Ot course, of course . . ." Rogers" voice was conciliatory. "But think of the danger, Weeks. We're on the spot. Can't you get that through your head?" Rogers stopped a moment, and Bob Tait strained at the doorway. "Is the girl all right?" "Sure, she's all right. But I'm not guaranteeing you that she will be all right if you're going to treat me like a tramp just because I happen to come here." Tait heard Rogers' voice come through the paneling of the door. It was a voice suddenly tight with fear and anger. "Look here, Weeks. If you harm that girl it'll mean the chair lor you. Do you understand that? I've a reputation that will hold water — while nobody knows you from Adam. If you do anything to hurt Myrna Dombey I'll go straight to the police and swear I never saw you before in my life." * * * TT was difficult for Tait to restrain himself, there in the hallway. Trembling in every nerve fiber, he held out against crashing down the door. Presently he heard Rogers say, quietly, "Is »he still at the Belvedere?" "Yes," George Weeks said. "You don't need to worry." "How do you know she won't raise the devil and get you into trouble?" Tait heard Weeks' moronic chuckle. "I've been over that with her. She doesn't know when I leave the other room. And I showed her a gun. I told her that if she so much as turned the knob of the door I'd let her have it. Don't worry, Rogers. She's all right." "Then what are you here for, anyway?." Weeks' voice grew indolent "Just to see how you're getting along, and whether you might not want to let me have a hundred." "You'll get what you have coming when your job is finished. You'd better get back to the Belvedere and see that the girl is all right. What's wrong with you, Weeks? Have you been drinking?" Again that moronic chuckle, "No, Rogers. But It might interest you to know that I'm going to be featured tonight with The Swinga- teers." "What—what do you mean, you fool?" "I mean that I'm going to play 'The Cat's Meow' in a feature spot. And what's more, a song publisher is going to give me ten thousand for the rights to a new song I wrote." Tait heard the shuffling of feet behind the door. He could visualize Harris Rogers excitedly grabbing the lapels of Weeks coat. "Look here, you idiot! Stop babbling! What have you been monkeying with The Swingateers for? And what new song did you write? You couldn't make a tune that would set Mother Goose to music!" "They think I can, though," Weeks said. "And what's more don't forget they believe I \vrote 'The Cat's Meow'." "Get out—" * * * JJOGERS' voice was choked, maniacal—and Bob Tait waited to hear no more. He fled, literally, fearing -that within the next moment George Weeks would be catapulted out that door by an insanely angered Harris Rogers. Too, he had another goal in mind. Downstairs at the curb he hailed a taxi. "Do you know of a hotel or apartment called the Belvedere?" The driver cogitated a moment. "There's a hotel by that name on Laurel street." "Is that the only one you know of by that name?" "Yeah. I don't know of any other." "Then let's get there as quickly as you can. There's a healthy tip in it." The taxi driver took Bob Tait at his word. Tait had been through the city on some wild rides—in police cars, in fire trucks, and even in the limousines of suspected gangsters—but this was the wildest. He had hardly settled himself in the seat when the driver leaned back and called, "Here y'are, mister. Belvedere Hotel." '£ : .Tait looked out. It was a brown frame structure with a cheaply painted sign on the front giving the priea of rooms by the night and by the week. He nodded, handed the driver a bill. "There'li be another one of those if you'll hang around a while." "It's all your show, Cap," tha driver said. Almost inside the doorway Tait was stopped by a frowsy, gray- haired woman who wanted to know his business. Beyond her was a small and battered desk and on it a hotel register. Two rocking Chairs comprised the furniture of the lobby. Jtt'm from headquarters," Tait saST "I want to get into the room of George K. Weeks." "Weeks?" repeated the woman, her face reddening. "Weeks it is. And don't stall. If I don't get some action from you I'll take you with me." Protesting bitterly the innocence of he"r person and her house, the woman led him to the basement floor. Fumbling behind her apron she produced a skeleton key and opened a door near the bottom of the staircase. "There you are," she said. "And you'll find nothing amiss with any lodger in this hotel." Tait strode to the door across the room. "I want to see in there, too." "I haven't the key to that," the woman said. * * # WITHOUT further word, Tait stepped back, then crashed his bulk dead against the flimsy door. The lock gave, shattering the door frame. Even as he pushed open the mangled door he could hear the woman's hurried steps on the stairway. But he was not interested in the escape of the frowsy keeper of the Belvedere Hotel. He was interested in the forlorn figure which lay revealed on the bed in the windowless room. It was Myrna : and as he entered the room she stirred faintly. When he went to her side and lifted her by the shoulders, she looked at him vaguely. "Bob . .." Her voice was weak. Plainly she had been doped, either by Weeks or by the vile, stuffy air of the room. "Let's get out of here," Tait said. "Can you make it?" She nodded slowly. "I—I feel so weak, Bob." He took her by the shoulders, lifted her to her feet. When her knees seemed to give way he lifted her in his arms. But no sooner had he started toward the door than he saw the tall, hulking frame of George Weeks. And in his hand was a gun! (Continued on Page Six) Treasury Doubles Summer Deficit July-October Loss Rises ' From V, Billion to 1 Billion WASHJNGTON.-M>)-The Treasury said Wednesday it spent $2,980,684,945 and incurred a deficit of $1,139,537,782 in the first four months of the fiscal year, which began July 1. In the July-October months last year, expenditures were $2,549,184,506 and the deficit, $565,733,916. WPA accounted for most of the increase in expenditures over last year. The relief agency boosted its payments from $434,384,643 in last year's four- 'm'onth period to $766,571,482 this year. Although PWA has allotted nearly $1,000,000,000 for construction projects, actual disbursements by this agency in the fou rmonths were only $26,086,415. Contractors on PWA projects, however, usually start the work with their own money and are reimbursed as work progresses. Lower income, as well as higher expenditures, accounted for the doubling of the deficit for the four months, receipts from July 1 to Octo* ber 31 toaled $1,841,147,163, compartd with $1,983,450,590 in the same period aft year. The income decline was spread over all types of taxes. The federal debt stood at ?38,423\08fi,j> 174, or about $2,500,000,000 more than a year ago. Part of the deficit of the past four months was- finahced front cash which was on hand as a result of the cashing in of $1,400,000,000 Worth of sterilized gold last April. The balance was financed by borrowing $800,000,000 on the sale of securities on September 15. Sheriff, J. F. Willis. Wdlaceburg—Judges: Ben Irvin, Willis Morrow, Anders Terry. Clerks; H. M.

Draped down the side of the mounlain is the Alaska-Juneau Gold Mine Mill. This is the largest quartz gold mine in the World. My arrival at Juneau was quite exciting. I had become quite friendly with a girl from Minnesota, who was to be met by her finance in Juneau n and they expected to be married the next day. That poor girl had the worse case of "cold feet" I've ever n in my life. Just before we docked [ missed her, and found her on the qpposite side of the ship from the one that would be next to the pier. She said she just thought she would go on to Seward with the ship, and then back to the United States. 1 pursuad- ed her to come around on the other deck, and the minute she saw "Bill" n the crowd her face lighted up with a happy smile, and wild horses could not have kept her from getting off lhat ship. The Mt. MsKinley might liave been called the "Marriage Boat" ihat trip. There were at least six prospective brides aboard. One girl was going by steamer to Seward, by rail lo Fairbanks and then by airplane to Nome. I told her her man had retreated to the fartherest corner of the earth, but she was right after him In Juneau I was met by Mr. and Mrs. Claude Hurst. Mr. Hurst was once Commissioner of Education in Arkansas. He is now Commissioner of Indian Affairs in Juneau. Under their friendly guidance I saw Juneau very thoroughly. First we drove out to the Mendenhall Glacier, about 14 miles from Juneau. This is the only glacier upon which it is actually possible to stand and walk around. Incidentally, I have never been so hot in my life as I was as I stood on that glacier. We had had to walk about a mile from the car to reach it, the temperature was close to ninety, and I had on a wool suit. It is a mistake to think that Alaska is always cold. Juneau, although not so large as Ketchikan, is a very much more cosmopolitan place. There are beautiful school buildings, federal buildings, and shops and stores there. J visited the Territorial Museum, which is most interesting, and deserved much more time than I could give it. The Hursts took me to their pretty home, and we had a dish of Alaskan strawberry ice cream, before two hoarse blasts from the ship reminded me that in 15 minutes it would be gone, whether I was on it or not. I was about the last passenger to scramble .up the gangplank, but I made it. Slowly the ship backed away from the pier, turned around and steamed back up Gastineau chanel, the same way we had come in. We rounded Douglas Island, and for awhile continued north, to the beginning of Lynn Canal, and then swung sharply around and for the first time, sailed west. We had now entered Icy Straits, and it wus almost dark. Many times during that night I was awakened by the blowing of the foghorn, but it wasn't until I had returned through Icy Straits by daylight that I realized how ominous a sound it was, for fog in Icy Straits calls for skillful and cautious navigation. On each side of the straits lofty, sharp pointed mountains, 1 with glaciers in their gorges rise straight from the" water's edge to a height of seven to ten thousand feet. Sailing through Icy Straits you pass the entrance to Glacier Bay, which is a National reservation. Many living, active glaciers discharged into glacier bay, and the glacial ice floats out into icy-straits. There has recently been a National Geographic-Harvord sponsored aeronautical exploration of this ,arca. They discovered that behind the coastal range of mountains these glaciers have a common source in the largest ice cap in the world. Charge Extortion toll, of A. Student Organizations "Held Up" for Permission to Stage Dances FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Charges that Russell Hughes of Joiner, who withdrew from the University of Arjc- ansas last week after resigning as student social chairman, had ate'nypted to extort money from campus social organizations in return for permission to hold dances on certain evenings, were made in the student senate Wednesday by Philip Alston of Texarkana, leader of the independent party majority in the senate. The independents blocked the appointment of Frank Rrogers of Blytheville, named by Student President Bob Stout as Hughes' succesor. Alston said that Rogers was a fraternity brother and roommate of Hughes and that he was no acceptable to the senate majority. Alston charged that officers of the Commerce Guild, a student organization, had given Hughes a check for $5 which the officers said was demanded for permission to hold a dance on a certain night. Alston said he could prove that similar demands had been made on at least three other groups. The student social chairman supervises all social affairs, and permission must be obtaine from him to hold a dance. President Stout, Hughes and Rogers all are affiliate with the "new Deal" party which opposes Alston's group. Judges and Clerks (Continued trom Page One) \n P. Cox Drug Co.
