The colorful pageants, the spectacular floats, the brilliant flares, the huge blocks of ice carved into all manner of objects. On either side of the throne, raised at the top of the long silver stairway, stood two majestic lions, made from snow. Hidden lights, in rainbow colors, turned the crystal world into rose, then lavender, then gold. Last of all in the solemn procession came the Queen in the magnificence of regal robes, en ermine cloak with a train that spread for yards like a peacock's tail, a glistening scepter in her hand, a glittering tiara crowning her dark curls. There were sighs and whispers and then a mighty thunder of applause and acclaim. The carnival continued long into the night, until the last tiny star was enfolded in a cloud and put to bed, and the last song had died on the clear, crisp air and the Queen and her ladies in waiting found that their eyes were dream- lidded and their dancing slippers stilled. Nevertheless Sally Blair, her short reign ended, slipped out of bed before 6 o'clock that next morning, resumed the ordinary dcthing of mortal maid, and crept out to meet the dawn. Or, rather, to meet Dan Reynolds, who was waiting, true to his word, at- tee foot of pr;:t:ce hill, * * * «T DIDN'T think you'd make it," he said. He had not put any stars to bed. It was too important that he be in form for the last important events of the meet.

He was not smooth and suggested, proceeding to put her shining and fair like Corey. But there was a ruggedness, a strength about this boy that matched the mountains he set out to conquer. He said, "Shall we use the tow- pulley to get to the top? It will save time." The tow-pulley was a long loop of rope, that fastened about one's waist, saved hours of laborious climbing. Sally shook her head stubbornly. "I've plenty of time," she said, even though he had none for her, except this grudgingly extracted bit, of which she would make the most, or die in the attempt. He helped her adjust her skis into the tde-plates, tightened the bindings with one firm pull. They herringboned up the hill, breaking the virgin snow that had fallen during the night. "Want vo rest?" Dan asked at the halfway mark. She had matched his silence with hers. She would show him she could share the companionship and stillness of a new day that was like a sanctuary in its stark purity. * * * CHE shook her head. They :tj ' trudged on, side by side. It was glorious, the clean air washing against her face, filling her lungs, beckoning her on and on, up and up. But not so glorious as the down-trail, the hushed moment of the Schuss! when the ground would drop away beneath through the easiest maneuvers, "I think I can try it now," Sally said. She had endeavored to give a good demonstration of windmill gyrations, holding her body with ram-like stiffness. It would never do to let this serious buy know she was laughing up her sleeve at him. * » * QR was she? B2fore this first lesson was over, Sally was not so sure. He had been so patient, so painstakingly careful, so earnest and eager, when he finally accepted the idea that his pupil seemed in earnest, too. Sally, after a warm word of praise when she swung a telemark that was almost too agile for such a beginner as she, had the grace to feel a trifle ashamed. Still, he had asked for it, she told herself fiercely, the lesson over, as he knelt before her to unsnap her skis. "You did pretty swell for a girl." His direct gray eyes looked up into hers. "You'd make a real skier. If you could take it seriously enough." "What makes you think I couldn't?" Sally asked. She liked the way his hair rumpled in the breeze. No hat or masks 'or sun-goggles for Dan Reynolds. He was of the wind and sky, the clear, swift air of mountain tops.

The best thaat seem to be offered are coming from a small group of educators who think high schools ought tii (each (rmles to the hoys and girls who aren't going on to college—instead of cramming their bends with Lalin. The group of educators who tell this wny is small, for most teacher Iran toward tho scholarly, and a scholar likes to think practical things like' earning ri living aren't as important as being in life. Still and all, the trend .seems In be toward more practical education for the great bulk of high school students. Fighting for it is New York is Associate Superintendent Dr. Edward Mjindcl, who has been an educator for 50 years, and who thinks that today it is up to high shools to give their students the kind of vocational training the young used to get as apprentices. He thinks it is about lime, too, that students were taught lhata "there i.s ii dignity to the .shop equal to the dignity of Virgil." While the educators are fighting among themselves theh battle of academic .subjects v;i. vocational training the boys and girls who are in high school right now and know they won't be going on to college had bettor decide for themselves. Will they Ire better fitted for the life they have to face if they have devoted most of their four year.s of secondary education to leuring trade'.'

Anti-Lynch Bill May Be Revised Senator Van Nuys Would Push Measure at Next Congress WASHINGTON—(IP)—Prospects for another Senate battle over an nnti- lynching hill developed Wednesday with tin announcement by Senator Van Nuys (Dem., Itid.) that the measure would be revived. He said he would confer soon with Senator Wagner (Dem., N. Y.), ci- nulhor of lust session's hill, which was shelved after a Southern filibuster. 'there were indications thai the Southern bloc would filibuster tiny motion to bring up the bill ngain. Senator Connnlly (Dem., Tex.) predicted recently that it never would be brought to n vote.

Just because she was so popular, because she could have worn a haiE dozen fraternity pins and had another dozen broken hearts to her credit, chosen because she had been Queen of the carnival. "You ought," she added, "at least give a girl a chance." "I told you I haven't time," he answered, almost roughly. He straightened to his tall, lean height. "I don't belong in your crowd, Miss Blair, in yoyr world. I'm working my way; through. school. I sling hash for my meals;* 1 didn't Corey tell you that? I only got spiked into the fraternity because I may make the Olympics. I'm just a poor scrub." "I don't care what you are,' Sally replied and her dark eyes were shining, not dangerously, but softly now. "I think you're okey, Dan Reynolds." And the amazing part was that she meant it! "And I hope you'll have time for another lesson. Tomorrow morning at this same hour?" She would show him that she could take it! Besides there were not many mornings "left. She must make the most of every one of them. Especially if she was to win her dara. But somehow Sally felt a little bit ashamed, now, when she thought of that.
