Mullory 1.00 Administration Hand Forced in PostWarTalks Washington, March 25 —(/P)— Despite reported relucatncc in high quarters lo stir the cauldron of Senate debate now on post-war international collaboraion, the administration's hand appeared today to have been forced by those who seek an early declaration of congressional intentions. Apparently convinced the issue must be settled without regard lo timing, administration leaders were understood lo be at work already on tentative drafts of a proposal which they arc expected lo offer as a substitute for a half dozen pending resolutions. Several of these resolutions offer blue prints for immediate and at- Icr war collective action by the United Nations but the administration's licutcnals are expected to favor something extremely smiple in form and vague in commil- menls. One discussed drafl would stale merely it is the sense of the Senale lhat the United States will cooper- Mrs. Mrs Mrs ate fully With its Allies in the vigorous prosecution of the war and collaborate with them in preserving world peace afterward. Such a declaration would be calculated to aVoid embarrassing demands in the Senate for a specific statement of our Allies' as well as our own post-war intentions regarding territory and other matters and its proponents hoe — might be passed by a substantial Vote. The situation is such, however, lhat administration officials conceded privately they must bring the matter lo a Vote in some forro or encourage a world assumption lhat the United States is and is likely to remain isolalionist in its views. Thus they could not let the half dozen pending proposals slumber in committee, as suggested by some. Senator Gillette (Dlowa), au- Ihor of one of Ihc measures, said that as he sized up the mailer any failure on Ihe part of the Senate lo act now would be construed as inability to act because of dissension over the course to be followed. "In that event," he said, "our Allies would assume, and rightly so, that the possibility of obtaining unified action with us after the war was remote." A Republican senator who has taken an isolation viewpoint in the past, agreed with this analysis. The fat is in the fire, said this senator, who declined use of his name, and the issue will have to be decided one way or another. Half of a small peanut can supply all of the calories needed for an hour of brain work.

J.—(.I 3 )—A stork service for busy war workers is in op- oration at the RCA Victor plant here. The service came lo light when a worker told his foreman that the stork was hovering over his house. He didn'l wanl lo take lime off lo wait for Ihe bird lo land, yel 'he was afraid his wife would have transportation difficulties, and there are no oulsidc Iclcphoncs in Ihc restricted area in.which he works. "We have just the thing for you," the foreman said, grinning. "Jusl leave word at the personnel depart- mcnl—stork service division." The worker did. Later that day the wife telephoned. The personnel departmenl flashed word lo Ihe husband over Ihe plant's public address system. Five minutes later he was on his way in a cab. By OREN ARNOLD DON "RED" BARRY and I Carlson-Rente Haul HOPE CHAPTER XXII T7D BRYAN, pilot friend of Jimmy Carr and Pat Friday, came to Pat on the quiet this morning about 10 o'clock. "Miss Pat," said he, "I'm a little worried." "Are you, Ed? Why?" "Well, you know how it is. When it's going to be one whale of a big storm, everything's quiet and rosy for several hours just preceding." "Oh . . . I see, . . . Yes, Ed, it is awfully still. I—I haven't been in the weather office so I don't know what the barometer reading is, but anyway I think we—" "I wasn't talking about the weather," "No?" "It may or may not storm, for the glider train flight. But I was talking about that Stuart dame. "Oh. I see. Ed, has she acted up again?" Pat was mildly alarmed "No'm, she hasn't. That's just the trouble. I worry about her being so quiet." "But—maybe she's just ashamed of herself." Ed snorted. "Hunh!" "Maybe we helped her see it our way. Jimmy's way. I mean. "I been, sticking close to her under cover like. She stand* around and smokes and stares oft at nothing too much. It ain 1 healthy. For us." "Ed, be nice to her. Invite hei to lunch, and invite me and Jimmy too. Will you? We got out o all the reception committee do ings, because we're planning tin ah- train. But Jimmy and I hay to eat somewhere!" '•'You figure if she's with com pany she'll behave better?" EC asked. "Yes! Wouldn't you mope, too just left alone? If you were ii her shoes? And besides—Lorain can't—she isn't really—like w think. Jimmy wouldn't hav loved her." . Big Ed Bryan Iooke4 iiitentl at Pat. His lips worked in an out in half-comic way. "Heap 1 . grunted again. "You get rne ! nixed up sometimes. Sounds like ou're actually standing up for er!" "I am, Ed." "Why?" She didn't answer that. But fter a long pause she looked di- ectly^at him. Ed began, nodding, nd he spoke his new wisdom in ow, respectful tone. "Miss Pat, you been telling Sturt this was all impersonal with ou. But it ain't, is it? It's so oggone personal it hurts!" Pat murmured, "Yes, Ed." "Truth is, you're sold on the captain, yourself." Pat bit her lip, to keep it from rcmbling. "But you aren't going o say anything, are you?" she pleaded. "Nope." "You—you said you loved a girl, !n Atlanla." Ed nodded. His heavy-featured, 'ace was a dark study now. "Then maybe you know how it s. Yes, I do love Jimmy Carr. mow it. And you know it now. And—and Loraine Stuart has mown it all along." Again Ed nodded. "She would Miss Pat," said he, softly. "She don't miss many tricks." "But it—it's still impersonal All of this! I can tend strictly to business. And if Loraine is— is—" "You could fight back," Ed suggested. "You're pretty as she is Prettier. And smarter. You could take and—" "No." * * * T?D paused, considering her •*"* "Hrnmm," he sounded. "Jimmy chose Loraine. He love: her, he loves her very devotedl; I'm sure. If I love him, myseli then my cue is to help him fine happiness, Ed! Not confuse him Not make him do something he'c probably regret a little Jaler. It— it sounds nice, I suppose, to say a girl had a right to go out am fight for her man. And believ me, that's what I'd like to do But, Ed—I don't love him tha way. I love him inore. More Don't you understand?" She had become a little ve hement with it. Ed blinked avoiding her eyes. "Yes'm," said he, in his souther manner. "I reckon I do under stand what you say. But do yo know one thing? You could b mistaken." Pat waited, and finally asked "How do you mean, Ed?" Ed smiled, kindly. "I have bee round. Police work. Detective, efore I had taken to flying air- lanes for Uncle Sam. And, Miss at, a feller doing that learns to ead behind people's eyes." "Behind people's eyes?" "Yep." He was rocking on his eels now, a little. "Now you ake you—you come right out lean and admitted how you felt. Uid I respect that. I'll hold it acred between us, see. But the aptain, he ain't like you." "How do you mean? Isn't Jimmy—he's as honest as he can be!" "Oh, honest! Sure he is. He's o honest with everybody that it ometimes hurts. With every- ody, that is, but himself." "Ed, what do you mean?" Ed sighed heavily, "Now you ake a fellow like him—he gets vrapped up in flying, and being 1 .11 Army captain, and he sort of 'orces his personal life down, ma'am. He don't give it enough hought. He figures everything enters around winning this war," "Well—well, of course, Ed!" "Yes'm. But you know ono hing? If I was you I wouldn't ;ive up." The big man and the small girl ooked at each other intently for several seconds. Finally Pat felt ler chin begin to tremble, and a mistiness came into her eyes. Ed turned away, almost self- consciously. "I'll go git him and Miss Stuart and meet you here; by lunchtime," he said. "Yes'm." Pat watched him go. He walked heavily. There was something solid and friendly and good about Ed Bryan. He held an odd sort of wisdom, she knew. "Maybe I ought to listen to him!" something sang within her. "Maybe Jimmy and I—Jimmy and I—maybe Jimmy really could be made to—" Her eyes were bright again, and the chin had stopped shaking. For almost 10 minutes she stood there thinking of a great many things. Of Loraine, and Jimmy, and herself. Of trivial words, which might have carried deep import if she could have read them properly. "After all, he really did call me back from Elmira! Made Ed bring me to Phoenix. Had me be the flight passenger again. . . . And he—he's been so very nice, at every turn. He had some candy for me once, too. And he—teases me, but never Loraine. Maybe he—" The singing within her had become a symphony now. That old nebulous hope, which she had stifled, was rising again persistent and strong. .(To Be Continued) MONEY FOR We Are Closing Our Birthday Sale—and the Final Two Days Will Be Dollar Days.
