CHAPTER II rpHE Ski-Rest, perched high like A a crow's nest on top of the mountain, was packed with red- cheeked, bright-eyed youngsters dressed in sweaters and knickers and snow suits, wooly mittens and heavy boots. A big fire roared at each end of the long, log room in the huge stone fireplaces. The smell of smoke and wax mingled with the more tantalizing fragrance of coffee and hamburgers. The record machine sang out one gay dance tune after another in r.apid succession challenging the chaff and chatter that rose all around. Outside the thermometer registered fifteen below and there was a bitter wind, but within was warmth and coziness and laughter. "How come you're not entering any of the women's events, Sally?" Babe Fair-child, a plump, doll- faced blond whose nickname suited perfectly, asked the question that all of the "gang" had been hesitating to put. "Everyone thought, as Queen of the Carnival, you'd put the rest of us gals in our places on skiis and skates." "Why should you think that?" Sally asked. Her dark eyes, beneath long curling lashes, were searching covertly for one particular person among all the close- knit groups. "I'm not that good. Not nearly good enough, in fact/' She had her reasons, but she did signaled them out. "There goes Corey Porter, senior president swell guy!" and, "That's Sally Blair. She was voted the most popular girl in her school and now she's to be Queen of the carnival!" "Remember," Corey said, 'you're my girl this week-end, Sally. Anyone who tried to break that up had just better watch his neck!" His look was so tierce, so possessive that Sally laughed. "I guess no one will dare try," she said. "That is if he values his neck." But she knew that Corey would find plenty of competition. Wherever she went Sally always held court. * * * J> OUNDING the bend they came upon a dazzlingly beautiful sight, wind-rippled snow, sparkling with myriad tiny diamonds, dark sentinels of pines marching up the mountain sides, a blue, blue sky spread like a canopy overhead, and crowds and crowds of brightly-costumed people. "Isn't it lovely?" Sally exclaimed, and then, "Oh, Corey look at that!" She caught his arm, standing breathless, watching a dark figure poised high above their heads, a figure that vorlaged now Vith one swift graceful forward /hovement, poised for the gelande- sprung, or jump, rose like a bird silhouetted against the sky, then skimmed down the trail of the slick steep slope, a cloud of snow like silvery smoke billowing behind, to come to a smooth, perfect stop with an elaborately executed "Christie." "That was worth looking at," Corey ad Uted. "Perfect co-ordination and judgment, marvelous tempo and control." "Who is he?" Sally demanded, still wide-eyed and breathless. Never had she seen anything to equal that performance in sheer grace and beauty. BY ADELAIDE HUMPHRIES COPYRIGHT. 1936 NKA SERVICE, INC, Illustration by Henry G. Schlensker. "Corey wants to as}( jou // you'll give me a lesson in s/fi'mtf '[»• morroru morning," Sally put in. "Just what is the big fcJea?" Corey asked, after the applause He'll make it, too, if he keeps up that form. He'll probably walk away with most of the honors tomorrow. At least, as one ot ms fraternity brothers, I can say he'd ;i:ct better, since we're backing him to stack up points for dear old Dartmouth." "I'd like to meet him," Sally said. It suddenly seemed imperative that she should meet this young man. He was the center now of a noisy, enthusiastic crowd as Sally and Corey drew near. that they were gray, and very grave, as well—met hers squarely. QOREY glanced at her, sidewise, his blue eyes narrowed. "That wouldn't do you any good," he informed her, crisply. "Reynolds hasn't any time for women. Not even one as de-lovely and desirable as you, my sweet. Especially one of your kind, I might add." "Are you afraid you couldn't wring his neck?" Sally laughed at him. "What do you mean by 'one of my kind'? I can't say I exactly relish that!" There was not time for Corey .o answer this, even with one of his ever-ready wise-cracks. Several of the young people, gathered about Dan Reynolds, recognized Sally and Corey and called out to them. "Hi, there!" '•. \ ] : "Alley-oop! It's about time you joined us!" "Here comes the Queen, everybody! Make way! Let's have a royal welcome!" Three long loud cheers rang out from lusty young throats as Sally •esponded with a mocking bow, flashing her smiles to the right and left. However, her dark eyes did not leave the figure of the tall, bare-headed boy, remaining silent and apart. He, alone, had not raised his voice in welcome. "Isn't someone going to introduce us?" Sally inquired. Her smile was just for him now. The Queen singling out a humble subject, bestowing a special favor. She would show Corey that he was mistaken. Sally had yet to meet the young man who would not COMEONE hastened to g, ^ through the formality of introductions. Sally extended her hand Another gracious gesture. But oni that this boy Reynolds accepted coldly. Then he inclined his head briefly, mumbled some small amenity, swung on his skis, glided away. "What did I tell you?" Corej said at Sally's side. His handsome face wore a wide grin. "Why, he's the rudest person ] ever saw!" Sally's face wa! flushed, her dark eyes dangerously bright. Then she shrugged hei dainty shoulders beneath the bulks warmth of her plaid parka, the hooded, wind-proof jacket of hez smart skiing outfit, turned toward the others. "Imagine anyone who's so courageous on top of a mountain, running away at the foot of one! What a great big he-man our would-be Olympic champion is, after all! Did he think I would bite?" This got a laugh, as she had hoped it would. Someone explained that Reynolds actually was afraid of "anything in skirts" for all his bravery and skill. "Though I'll faet Sally could tama him," Pudge Wylie, another of Corey's fraternity brothers, and another ardent admirer of Sally's claimed. "I'll take you up on that," Sally said coolly, with a little proud toss of her head. Her heart beat hard with anger and determination. "It's a double dare, Pudge. For Corey's in on it, too, Tin sure." She turned to him, her dark eyes- dancing now. "Check, Corey, my "Check." He nodded solemnly. That was their phrase to seal a bargain. "Well then," Sally said, "if we re going to get started for the two-hour climb up that hill, suppose you fasten my ski-bindings a bit tighter and we'll get going." But Sally was not thinking of skiing. Her pretty head already was outlining a campaign that promised more thrill and excitement than conquering a mountain.

P.S. —THE NATIONAL JOY SMOKE IN PIPES TOO R INGE ALBERT THE NATIONAL JOY SMOKE so Pro Grid Title Won by New York Giants Whip Green Bay Packers 23 to 17 Before 48,120 Fans NEW YORK—(/P)—The New York Giants soundly thumped the Green Bay Packers, 23 to 17 Sunday, and won the National Professional Football League championship, A crowd of 48,120 huddled in the Polo Grounds, was rewarded by a game that included 40 points, two field goals, a 49-yard rdss and a final desperate drive by the Packers that brought them 40 yards in the last 11 seconds of play. But by then it was too late. The jiants, who had taken the lead in the first period on a field goal and a touchdown and held it for all but three minutes of the game, were too strong. As :ime ran out they smashed through to hurry Arnold Herher and his last 3ass bounced crazily on the soggy turf with no receiver near it. The Giants had u nine-point lead Before the gjjme was 10 minutes old. They matched two Packers' touchdowns in the .second period with one- of their own. lost the lead by one xiint in the third period when Paul Engcbretsen place-kicked a field goal <md put the Packers ahead, 17-16, and then stormed down the field after the next kickoff for 61 yards and the touchdown that won the game. S«iir Goes to Town fn this final drive, Hank Soar wrought the kickoff back 19 yards to lis own 39. Then he plunged at trie ine, drove through the tackles and finally made -a first down on the Packers 38 by the length of the ball. Ed Danowski, the league's leading passer, took charge at this point. He sent a 10-yard heave to Soar, then smashed through guard for a four- yard gain and the ball was on the Packers 24, when Danowski spun back and passed. Soar took the ball off Clark Hinkle's fingertips on the seven and dragged the Green Bay fullback over the line for the touchdown. Cuff kicked goal. llowell, Poolu Block Kicks Before that the Giants or the Packers had been scoring or on the way to a score all the time. Jim Lee Howell. the Giant end, blocked Hinkle's second punt and recovered on the Packers seven in the first period. The Packer line stopped the Giants' running attack cold, so Ward Cuff, the place- kicker went back and booted the ball through the uprights with Danowski holding. Again u blocked kick led to a score. This lime Jim Poole ran into the ball as it left Cecil Isbell's toe and Howell recovered on the 2Gi A short pass put the bull on the Packer 22 and Tuffy Lecmans went to work. He made three over left guard, then went off tackle and cut back of a twisting run that put the leather on the six. On the next play he crashed through left tackle, was hit four times and finally dove over, John Gildea missed the conversion, but the Giants had nine points and the Packers hadn't been out of their own territory.
