I am nothing but n hardworking farmer myself, having farmed all my life, and have so far gone through the depression without any of the increased billions that the government had poured out to cure this depression. Have they done it? You are. the judge. Don't fool yourself. You know these big debts can't increase always; there Will have to be a payday sometime. Those little morphine pain- ratllcd checks will not last always. So weigh the above well befort you vote on December 10. I am for freedom and liberty, now and forever. I think it is high time for the American people to wake up to the danger of all these centralized moves today. They will destroy our individualism if allowed to continue. W. C.

COMMANDER SLOANE found her still clinging to Jack's hand, still looking into his eyes. The commander harrumphed loudly, and Judy turned, with a slight blush. "This young fellow's strong as an ox," said the doctor jocularly. "A bash like that would have killed anyone else. But all he's got is a broken arm and a few busted ribs." "Internal injuries?" Judy asked swiftly. Commander Sloane's eyes avoided hers. "Well—we don't know—takes lime to be sure—" "How long will it be before he's well?" » "Now, now, don't be rushing things! A good long rest in bed never hurt anybody." So it was going to take a long time. Weeks. Months, maybe. She wanted to ask if Jack would ever fly again, and suddenly she knew that he had asked himself. Probably it was the first thing he said when he regained conscious- Tiess. She didn't ask. Jack was weak, He smiled, and tried to talk, but there were telltale white lines around his mouth, and his face was pinched with exhaustion. She said, "Darling, I'll be here every timo they'll lei me in. I'll come ten times a clay. Oh, try to get well quickly!" She bent over him. "You must sleep, now. Goodby. I'll come back in the morning." "Goodby," he said. "Judy, Judy —" There was so much he wanted to tell her, she knew. But his breath came short, the cruel plaster cast was like a heavy weight on his body. She said soothingly, "I know, darling. Sec you tomor- rom!" She smiled bravely. * * * W/TOLE her mother and father and the skipper of the Enterprise and almost everyone else were busy arranging the funeral of honor for B 1 !! Bell, Judy"was at the hospital with Jack. The next morning he appeared stronger, "If this accident has brought you back to me, I'm glad of it," he said fiercely. "Oh, Judy, you don't know how I—" "But Bill—" "Of course, I didn't m'eaft. . . . lie shouldn't have tried to cbmte down after me." ''He—he was swell," she said, with difficulty. "I know. I—I'm going to do all I can for Diane—" "There's not much anybody can. do. She's taking the baby and going back to her folks in Vii> ginia. She'll be able to live on the pension there." Jack said, "That's the Navy for you. Maybe a woman's a foolto let herself in for it." But Judy Alcott said sturdily, "No! Diane would do it all over again, even if she knew the end. They were so happy! And we'll be happy. My mother and father have been happy. ..." His eyes adored her. "You're so sure now. Oh, I always knew, if I wailed—if I could make you see—" "I—I guess it was you all the time," she said in a shamed little voice. "But I didn't know—until that night. Thinking aboufyou— out there in the water—afraid you were dead—imagining all kinds of horrible things—" She lifted her chin. "But that's part of it. I wouldn't want to' have it otherwise!" He said slowly, "When I get well, Commander Sloane says I'll be good as new. Barring unforeseen complications. I—I'll be flying again, Judy." "I wouldn't want you to quit," she said. * * * <T<HE next day, Judy sat in the - 1 - car with Diane and Mrs. Al- colt, and the happiness that had lived in her eyes during the hours she had spent with Jack was gone. For this was Bill's final journey. They weren't going to see it all, but she knew how it would go. And.Diane knew. There would be a horse-drawn caisson, borrowed from the Army to do Lieut. William Bell honor. There would be soldiers, and officers on foot, and enlisted men behind. She stole a little glance at Diane. She was white and still. Controlled. But her fingers were curled into fists. Then they were at the cemetery, and Judy stood up beside Diane, hoping that the other girl wouldn't break down at the last minute. The men who were lined up facing each other on each side of the grave raised their rifles skyward and three volleys rang out. Diane cried uncontrollably,-' "Bill! Oh, Bill!" Judy put hep. arms arounB her. "Cry,"'stie''said* "It wilt do you good." But sh« couldn't watch, either, as they lowered the coffin into the grave. She tried to tell Jack about it. But she faltered, her voice breaking. He said, "I know what it's like. . . . And he did it for me." He added, "He would have done it for anyone. He was white." Diane was leaving for Virginia in the morning. She couldn't stand the empty bungalow, Bill's uniforms in the closet, the eyes of the Navy wives. "So I'll be late tomorrow morning*" Judy said. "I'm taking Diane to the station." * * * CHE held the baby, while an en' u listed man from the station carried Diane's bags, and Mrs. Al- colt went into the train to see that everything was all right in the compartment. And then Judy was handing little Bill to his mother and saying gravely, "You'll write, Diane? You'll let me know how things are?" "Be happy, Judy," said Diane, closing her hand over Judy's. "I always said—Jack Hanley's the best on the lot—" And then she was close to tears, and burying her face in the baby's little sweater. "I'll miss you so," Judy said. "Jack and I will try to come out lo see you, first leave we get." "If you're not ' ordered to Hawaii, you mean." She hugged the baby. "Bill and I had always expected to—" "Don't darling." "He's still with me!" Diane said fiercely. "I'm not going to act as if he's gone. He'll always be with- me!" "I know," Judy said, and the hot tears were burning her own eyes. "Oh, darling!" And then she and her mother were standing on the platform, waving goodby, as Diane held the baby to the window and the train crawled out of the station. "Poor child," said Judy's mother. "All alone. With that baby. I always said they were unfair when they reduced those pensions. A man who is killed in the line of duty should be permitted to leave his wife full pay. It isn't fair." Judy watched the long train of qprs move slowly past. "Mother," she said suddenly. "Does it always end this way—for flyers? Daddy never flew. It was safer and better and surer when he began. They ask so much of us. Diane has nothing now. No more Bill. No more Navy! Maybe it isn't worth it. Maybe a girl's a fool to—" Her mother patted her shoulder. "Even Diane said she would do it air over again," she said. "Service and loyalty are always worthwhile." T (Xo Be*Continiied)' Quail-Season in Arkansas Opens More Birds Than at Any Seaadri iii Past ten Years Is Report LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — iff) — The AAA's 1938 farni program was credited Wednesday With increasing one crop in Arkansas its farmers probably never considered. Reporting hunters who take to the. fields with the season opening Thursday would find more quail than at any limb in ten yenrs Secretary D. N. Graves of the stale game and fish commission sdid the AAA was partially responsible. The government required the fann- ers to plant more acreage in grains and other feed crops. The' quails thrived on the program. The .Arkansas season extends through January 31 with a bag limit of 12'birds daily. Graves said the supply of deer this year "definitely on the increase" but herds wore badly scattered and hunting probably would be disappointing. The deer season also opens Thursday and extends through December 15. The limit is one buck per season. Spring-Hill to Give.'

Tlicreforc any plan to be successful! must eventually reduce production. Sontrastint! this, wo now examine our present Inn, the question of subsidies now paid farmers for diversifying, considered by some as unsound policies on the ground that such measure have u tendency to curtain thrift —throwing the grower on n form of pension or depondiince upon the government. For nearly 100 years our industries have enjoyed these bcnfits under the guise of protective tariff yet the greatest objections we h;ive of subsidies come from the two classes directly bcnefitted: First, industry, and, second, a small minority of the farmers. Yet, when we review the history of the cotton bolt, for 25 yews back consider the reorganization of the banking system, our Federal Farm Loan, the HOLC jijicl the increase in soil fertility, we find our chief progress has been during the last five years. Alexander H.-miilton, himself (ho father of tariff, said it was not right that the producer should buy on a tariff-protected market, and sell on the open market, yet it remained for Roosevelt to put subsidies in effect 100 years Inter. So my conclusion is, that when Congress issues enough currency to pay our national debt without any gold backing, abolishing the vast amount of interest now accumulating as well as the principal placing the government behind this currency, pursuing the same agricultural policies we have already adopted, we shall then see real prosperity.

Monopoly Is Seen on RoseBowl Tilt Directors Also Consider Playing Game Each December CHICAGO.-MP)-A iwssible monopoly on Rose Bowl football games— through an arrangement which would confine the event to games between Big Ton and Pacific Coast teams- will be discussed by Western conference atrletic representatives at their annuu De-comber meeting Thursday. Pacific coast Confeenrce authorities favor (lie idea and several Big Ten athletic directors see good points in such an agreement. The principal drawback is that Big Ten teams have to continue practice through cold, snowy weather before playing the contest in suntoVer temper- Hope Attorney Is (Continued from Page One) Johnson, who received 437 votes. W. A. Lewis was third with 263 votes. In the fourth ward, the veteran Charles Taylor, seeking a fifth term as alderman, went down to defeat as his only opponent, Syd McMath polled 733 votes. McMath carried three of the four wards, the unofficial count showed. Taylor's total was 488. Charles Reynerson was re-elected to a fourth term as city treasurer without opposition. The new officials will take office next April. John T.CTynn Says (Continued from Page One) is going to send us into a reverse movement is now.

Noble Kizer, Purdue's athletic director, has suggested that the Rose Bowl game be advanced, possibly to an early December date. One argument advanced for the idea is that it would eliminate bickering which often marks selection of an Eastern or Southern opponent. Southern California will meet Duke in the bowl extravaganza January 2, but many California fans had hoped Texas Christian would get the invitation.
