By MftRAY (For Gayle falbot) NEW YORK Itf! — Jack Dempsey's suggestion that an elimina- tionainent be held to uncover a "real" challenger for Rocky Marciano is a worthy idea but Bobby Gleason thinks he has something bette.' to offer. "Make the champion light the No. 1 challenger within six months or take awuy 'his title," says the fierty little manager of Cuban "des, '"That's the way they do it in Erirope. If the European champion doesn't meet No. 1, he's tossedout on his ear by the European Boxing Fndei ation. "Otherwise, what good is it to rank fighters Or have a No. 1 contender You can't eafr a ranking." Bobby, of course, is not entirely unselfish in advocating the adop- in its latest rankings a few weeks back listed nc logical contenders for Mariciano among the big boy Ezzarj Charles, the former champ headed the list of "outstanding boxers," followed by Valdes, Dan Buccaroni and Roland LaStarza. Dempsey suggested that Charles, Valdes, Bucceroni r.nd Nafdico fight it out in an elimination hour- ney. Gleason is willing to have Valdes Charles but he wants a "payday" this time. He's willing to give Ole Ez a return fight but he wants ?30,000 il Valdes wins and $40,000 if Charles evens the score. Actually, the w;iole thing is academic.

I was talking to Bill Stark, who was showing considerable concern over his pup. The pup had beeni retrieving' with quite some dash and Bill Was very proud of him He'd s,hown him off to several of the boys on occasion and it was true that the pup had been doing very 1 well for his five months. "All I tried to do was steady him,"-said Bill, trying to explain thechange in the pup. "One minute he can't get to the buck fast enough and the next minute he has lost, all interest in retrieving. no amount of pleading will get ~ : him to go near the buck and if asked Bill. "Whp doesn't he know I try to forre him, he runs out I want him to retrieve now that of reach and tries to hide. You'd I'm asking him to do so?" f Hope Bobcats ln59-45Win Over DeQueen A fourth quarter rally gave thB Hope Bobcats a 59-45 victory over the DeQueen Leopards lat night in DeQueen. This was Cats 12th straight win. The Bobcats and Leopards traded points evenly in the initial period, but two quick crip shots by Spanky Mitchell enabled the Cats to a 15-liM lead. The second quarter was nip and ; . tuck as the score was tied some five times, but Hope managed to squeeze out a 24-23 halftime lead. The lead changed hands a few times in the third quarter but Hatch's 6 points and Griffin's 5 gave Hope a 40-36 lead at the ertd of the quarter. The Cat really caught fire in the ^ final psriod when they dropped in^ 19 points to 9 for the Leopards. In** this quarter DeQueen's first team fouled out giving the much taller Bobcats the advantage and a victory. In the preliminary game, the Bobkittens after leading for three quarters droped a 33-26 win to the Jr. Leopards.

Whalebone whales have enormous tongues, compared with those of toothed whaieb. The row of hangers held other garments, from another life. Tailo,rea shirts, slacks, the red velvet negligee ... You look like a cardinal in that! Dale kicked the door shut, feeling tensions mounting In her aa memories swept over her. She looked down at her armful ot silks and woolens and cottons, and suddenly let everything drop to the floor. From a hanger ahe took a pair of gabardine slacks and a white silk shirt. Her fingers were not quite steady, buttoning the shirt down the front, zlpplHg the slacks' side fastener. The dressing- table mirror was so dusty that she could not see herself In It, but she did not stop to dust It off. The suit she had just taken oft was tossed on the floor with the other things. There was one way of discarding them, anally and forever. Grandmother would cringe at the wickedness of wanton destruction, but Pale was in no mood to consider the needy poor or church missionary barrels. She scooped up everything and went outside. Two more arrafuls added the rest of the dresses and h*te and lingerie to the pyramid on the lawn, and then, stooping, she touched a match to it. A flame like sudden sunlight rushed up, only to be lost in the brighter dazzle of reality. Pale stepped back a pace or two as the heat scorched her face. The smell of burning cloth was sharp and acrid, but she stood watching the curl of smoke, unwilling to move away until she was sure that nothing but ash was left, Was it possible to consume tour months of one's life in a bonfire? She glanced around and saw Grandy coming toward her along the path used so seldom, now that the raspberry canes had almost taken it over entirely. The old man stopped beside her, hands thrust Into his gray flannel trouser pockets, hia eyes fixed on the rolling smoke. "What's this you're burning up?" he asked, 'V»ridges, or barriers?" . "Poes it matter?" "Maybe not," he, agreed. "It you're burning your !?ridgea be» hind you, there's nowhere else to go Lu? forward, and that's good.

"No," pale said, "I'm going back, Grandy," Almost desperately, she begged, "l know your pr«* diiection for wise sayings, but Just let me alone, will you, please?" He took out his pipe, but he 4W not light it, He cupped the smooth bowl in his palm and she saw the whiteness of his knuckles. "What happened, to you In, the cjty, Pale?

"Don't worry. about nie," she said, laying her pand tor a moment .on his arm. 'Til be all right, now that I've come honie." She went back, Into the house. Only a few things remained now in her J?ag8, among; them— stIU Jn its wax paper wrapping— Grand- mother'a fruitcake., On only pne occasion had Dale cut it: on thai June night, for Lora Thornton. She thought ot Lora, who had been her own, Judge and Jury and executioner. No islands? Grandy had forgotten that one. Or had ne known that she, Pale, would never seek the far and final retreat of Lpra's island? Pale stood on a chair and put the square of fruitcake on a top shelf of the kitchen cupboard. One ot Grandmother'B favorite renol- nlscencea was the one about her mother, Pale's great-grandmother, who had kept the top layer of her wedding cake for her silver aniu> versary, "Pldn't It," pale as^ed her once, "go moldy?" And Grandmother replied proudly, "No W' deed. Made right and kept right, fruitcake'M last a lifetime." The shelf paper was yellowed. and brittle as thin glass. I'll p« on fresh papery pale, decided. I'll scrub and polish troni attic to cellar, until the whole IKHUM shines the way it did when we lived tie«>. Buoyancy at the prospect ot physical war* jjghtened her heart as she clln>be4 slown. oft the chair. She was about to close the cup- bo,ar<J when.. she saw the sllp.ot paper protruding from the blue she unfolded and read it. It had banished the present and plunged her 1 deeply and passionately Into the past. , ''.Kelly was no artist, but he had drawn a flower resembling a half- open tulip, Its pistils tiny hearts. And he had written: / wear you on my heart. Some men could say things like that without sounding stickily sentimental . . . She atared at the words until tears swam in her eyes, blurring them. Finally, she buttoned the note hi her breast pocket and walked over to the window. The concrete L, of the dock was a 'sun-white protrusion into tha blueness of water bluer than the sky. A green tendril of the rambler rose swayed gently against the. windowpane. Near the.buoy;« solitary fisherman sat to a rowboat. Farther out,, plumy smoke rose from the funnels of the twice- a-week lake steamer, carrying its summer's end cargo ot vacation- ists.' ' ' ' '•' : - " " .•''• A carload of young people rode out on the dock, and the morning's stillness was suddenly shattered by their shouts and squeals as-they raced about in a violent game of tag, and then plunged single file into the water, slashing it to foamy whiteness. Dale's hand reached up to her blouse pocket. Kelly, where are you? Help me out of this 1 1 belong out there on the dock with those blithe, ardent youngsters, not here In the shadows. Where, In all this grayness, are you? She found the second note when she was brushing her teeth after the lunch she had almost forgotten to eat, ft was rolled around her toothbrush glass and fastened with an elastic band, and at first — using tite clean glass she had carried into the bathroom — she did not see it. Then, sputtering mouthwash in the delight of her discovery, she slid the elastic band off. The message said only, Olean and sweet as « summer skyl Sleep ioett, my lovely. Evidently he bad intended her to discover this pne p,t' bedtime, Dale buttoned it carefully into her pocket w^h the other one, knowing now that Kelly hacj left the notes for her to read while he was in New York, seeing tjje ipubllshers, Qn the •following day, while she was taking down the Uving-room draperies, Pale came op the Jhtrd pote under the little onyx RuJcinea. . Only one .person ,U» the could bava put it there. Only one person »n paje/a ute itad wrlttep messages for her and stuck then) whimsically into the toea ot shoes. in. dresser drawers, tn mirror . jlrames, under the cjpck. , «¥ouj- row toe iiW f towiy, He 9 pebble an.<l Pftlp, «Y»»r Who To wttut y<Wt i/ t forget (9 8<*V I you , , .

Pale crossed .eagerly to the bookcase and took down Untermeyer'a translation ot Hein- ricb Heine. KeUy had ticked o« the first stanza of the poem with a pencil. "The years keep coming and going Men will arise and depart; Only one thing la immortal; The love that is in my heart." Tears stung her eyelids.

He !had a very sensi- ive -dog. And by .trying to steady lirh, which is a negative process i involving holding and warning 1 with a threatening tone, he had associated displeasure with the re- :rieve and his dog was definitely confused. 'To put it another way'— by stop- ling him he had indirated to him. 1 ,hat he did not want him to relieve. How was the dog to know that he was to stop only until i 3ili gave him the command to go? "Well, what will I do now?" CHAPTER THIRTY ON THE following day, while she was playing the Irrelevantly gay waltz from Tchaikovsky's Fifth. Dale switched It oft. Tchaikovsky in his more familiar mood of the Pathetique was more to tier liking. She found tha record in the cabinet, dusted it off and .Inserted it, started the machine. As the sounds rolled over and over her, she forgot the Ethel Merman recordings she had forced on Lora Thornton. The draperies lay on the floor In a .dusty heap. After the Pa- thetique, she played some Sibelius, and it was while she was listening to Chopin's Sixth Prelude— the somber cry of the man on Majorca who was sure he had lost his love in a storm off the mainland — that Dale heard the knock on the door. For a moment, she made no move to answer it. After the second knock, insistent and determined, the door flew open. "DaJe?" It was Phil Parrish. . Her resentment of hia coming was so sharp that it pushed her tb her feet to face him, her eyes angry. "For the love of Mike, that funeral march!" Without even a token salute, Phil strode to the machine and silenced its needle. "No one but a man who lived on an island with bad weather and smoky fireplaces and a chronic cough could, have composed it! Do you have to listen to it?" "You don't!" He kicked at the heap of monk's cloth on the floor. "What's all this?" 1 "Oh, stop sounding like Aggie! , I was going to hang the draperies outside for an airing." "You look as if you could use soine air yourself," be said, his eys searching hers intently "Come along, -'11 neip you najig this stuff out, and then we'll ait In the sun and talk." «<We haven't anything to say to 1 eaejj other." , f «f think we have.
