No "Winking" at Overtime, Decree Employer Liable Even Though Overtime Work Unauthorized WASHINGTON --(/Pj~ Paul Sifton, deputy wage-hour administrator, cautioned employers in a statement Wednesday against "winkink" at unrecorded overtime work by their em- ployes. "If an employe is in fact allowed to work overtime, even though without express official authority," be said, "hours so spent must be taken into' account." If no record of such hours is kept, on the pretext that no express offieial uithority to work overtime had been Jiven, he added, the employer is vio- ating the law.

He said, "Pretty soon you'll have your cavalier home, Judy." But in his shrewd eyes was a gleam that told her he, too, had heard the gossip. It didn't take long to travel! It wns like leaping name. Five minutes after a thing happened, every house on the station was ringing with it. After the doctor went out again, Jack tugged at the heavy Academy ring on his finger. "We ought to do this right," he said. "I'd like you to wear my class ring. At least until I get out and we can pick out a diamond ring—whatever you want—" Judy though I- of the square, emerald-cut diamond that Marvel had worn. Everyone said maliciously that Dwight's pay had never paid for it. She said, "I—I don't want a diamond ring, Jack." "Diamonds aren't Navy," he said. "But I thought maybe you like them. They're your birthstone. April." He remembered all the little things, she thought, in a sudden wave of tenderness. The colors she liked best, and that she preferred sweetpeas to gardenias.

You couldn't argue with a person who simply went out of the room. You couldn't change Mother's knowledge. She knew. She knew. T/he next morning she went to the hospital as usual. Jack was in a wheel chair. "How'm I doing?" he asked happily. "Boy, a few more days, and I'll be walking! Walking right out of here." * * * was honestly glad that he was better. But she drendccl his homecoming, now, after what had happened. A week after he got out, they had planned to be married. A week. Suppose bc got out in a few days? Queer how all the certainty had left her, just because she saw Dwight again. The sercac contentment, the quiet happiness that she bad experienced in this room with Jack, contemplating their future, had evaporated. There-was nothing now but the old uncertainty, the same formally for a drink. Two or three because they concerned her were important io him. She wondered wearily if Dwight so much as knew exactly how old she was. He probably didn't. * '* * gHE hugged Jack impulsively, and then put her hand out while he slipped the ring on her third finger. It was far tpo large. The heavy gold mounting slid to one side. She said shakily, "I'll have to wrap string around it to make it fit." He touched her chin, and then his lips were pressing down on hers. While he kissed her, she thought stcadi'iy, "I'll never do anything to make him unhappy. He's too fine. Too trusting and unsuspecting." But the kiss Dwight Campbell had given her yesterday burned on her lips even while Jack Hanley's mouth touched them. Wearing the ring, Judy went to Magda Hamilton's cocktail party. It wasn't really a party—just a bunch of people coming in in- everybody she knew and said, Come over." It didn't take long for the sharp eyes of the wives to spot Jack's class ring. "Judy!" they squealed. Oh, how sweet! I'm so glad, darling." This, Judy told herself, made it official. Irrevocable. She was engaged to Jack Hanley. She was his. She wanted it to be positive. She didn't want to be able to draw back. "As if I were safeguarding myself from backsliding," she thought. But it was true. She couldn't trust herself. Even her pride had come dangerously near crumbling, that moment in the car when Dwight took her in his arms. * * * JF Jack were out of the hospital, able to spend most of his time with her, it would have been easier. But there were so many empty hours in which to think! And her thoughts were treacherous. They were all of Dwight. She was not really surprised when he telephoned her, two nights after she had worn the ring to Magda's. It was as if she had expected his voice. He said, "Judy, may I come over?" "I—I don't think Mother—" she said guardedly into the phone. "I'm losing my mind!" he said. "I've moped around on the ship until I never want to see it again. I must talk to you. Surely there's no harm in our taking a ride together, or going to a movie?" Then he said swiftly, "No, not a movie. Some place where we can—just talk—" He was lonesome. Lost. The empty white house with its cruel memories; th« unfriendly ship and the men who knew that Marvel had left him. "I know hqw you feel," she said. "But I—I can't get away." "Please, Judy! It means so much to me!" "I mustn't," she said, wanting to "You could just get into the car, as if you were going for a drive by yourself. I could meet you in town." No. No. That would make truth out of all the lies people had said. It would corroborate every whisper; breathe life into every ugly conjecture. Yet she wanted to go. He kept pleading with her. "I'm like an outcast," he said. "Like a pariah. Nobody talks to me. Nobody cares— Oh, Judy, just for a few minutes, couldn't you see me?" So in the end, ewn though she knew it was wrong and thnt she had'iio right to go while she wore Jack's ring, she said, "I'll be at the same corner, in ten minutes." (To Be Continued) go.

Grass Fires Threaten Damage in Ozan Area Grass fires have caused quite a bit • of excitement in the Ozan community, within the past few days. Recently j the fields which lie just north of town I caught fire and spread rapidly. Al- ( though near-by barns and houses were I in the path of the fire, no damage was done. A number of boys and men extinguished the blaze with pine tops. The fields near the homes of Mrs. Amanda Steward and of Mrs. Venie Maroon, both tenant farmers of the A. N. Stroud farm near Ozan, caught fire, endangering live stock, barns, and houses, but no damage was done other than that caused by the dense smoke chocking and smothering some mules that were in the barnyards.

Western Schools Teach Swing Jigs Fancy Jittering Jigs Are Taught to Give Students Exercise By The AP Feature Service DENVER.-Swing and fancy dances have moved right up front in classrooms of western schools. At Denver and in several other cities the Lambeth Walk, the Big Apple and even some of the ultra fancy jitterbug jigs are taught as part of physical education courses. "They teach a student rhythm and the social graces and give him exercise," says Miss Ruth Johnson, Denver high school physical education teacher. In Tulsa, Okla., even the ^ DTO schools have taken up the Lambeth Walk. Miss Miriam Gray, teachet, says, "Ifs just the thing." "The youngsters like it-in fact, they love it," she says. "A few boys called it 'sissy stuff at first, but they soon got over that." -The Denver high school physical education classes have all the appearance of a social hour. The classes are held in the school gymnasium and both boys and girls participate. The students, Lambeth Walking to the music of a phonograph, toss in alt the sound effects and come down extra heavy on the "Oi.' But Miss Elizabeth Waterman of the Winnetka, 111., public schools, who is teaching a special course in rhythm, is not in sympathy with the swing movement. "Americans like swing because they are lazy," says Miss Waterman, author of several textbooks on rhythm. '«1 I NEW Under-arm Cream Deodorant Safely STOPS PERSPIRATION 1.
