Eight billions of the national quota, it has been announced, will come from non-bank investors, and the balance from banking sources. Described by Secretary of the Treasury Morgcnthati, as the greatest money-raising campaign in World history, the sum to be raised through the sale of Treasury war- lime securities is more than double the $0,000,000,000 secured in the Fourth Liberty Loan drive of 1918, near the end of World War I, and 50 per cent greater than the $9,000,000,000 Victory Loan war financing drive conducted last December. The April quota is nearly half the amount spent by the Government during World War I. Of the $250,000,000 non-bank quota set for the Eighth Federal Reserve District for the April drive, a total of $20,100.000 has been set for Arkansas. Pulaski County's quota of $5.330,000 is the largest for the state, with'a $2,019,000 quota being set up for Sebastian County, and $1,400,000 for Jefferson County. Between 95 and G9 per cent of the money collected by the Treasury Department from all sources is being spent for War purposes, declared William M. Robbins, assistant to Secretary Morgcnlhau, on his arrival in St. Louis on March 30, to confer with leaders of the Second War Loan Drive in the Naval Air Station.

Tom Cogbill said today t.hcro would be no curtailment of production. Cogbill asserted that the average prison population of about 1,700 had dwindled to 1,100 because young men were entering the armed forces before they could gel into trouble and "repeaters" were content to work for high wages while jobs were plentiful. These 1,100, less 35 per cent required for non-productive prison jobs, will be cammed on to cultivate and harvest crops on some 13,000 acres this year, Cogbill declared. In addition they will produce 180 acres ol spinach for the government and will step up the spinach production with a fall planting of 1,000 acres. Cogbill said that Tucker farm, where most of the while prisoners arc incarcerated, would cultivate 150 more acres than in 1042 with 200 fewer men.

He was in a state of tingling alertness when her scream rang out. With the first sound he whirled, dodging. The instinctive side movement saved him. As the dark form of the native catapulted against him, hurling him to the deck, the swiftly descending knife slid harmlessly through hii coat sleeve, barely grazing- his arm. For a hideous second while the breath was knocked out of him, he felt the knife being ripped loose for another plunge. But control returned and he grabbed the native's arm midway in its vicious downward jab. Instantly the dark giant reached his other hand for Barry's throat, Barry twisted free and they went into a grim, rolling fight. Allison stood frozen, her screams strangled into breathless terror as the two lithe bodies writhed and strained across the shadowy deck before her. Then she caught the gleam of the knife still in the native's strong grip, waiting— waiting for that one fatal instant when Barry's desperate restraining hold relaxed! Fury flowed through her, bringing strength. She ran forward with a sobbing scream. "Barry! Kill him, Barry!" Just below her now was the cruel black face of the native. With fastidious loathing she closed her eyes and began beating it with her fists. "Hey!" She opened her eyes The native had twisted over and she was beating Barry's head! She drew back, gasping. She saw that Barry's teeth were gritted with a hard last effort, his hand being forced slowly down the huge black arm that was relentlessly raising the knife over his back! She threw herself with a scream upon that murderous, hairy nand. Her teeth sank with frantic viciousness into the flesh of the huge black wrist! She heard Barry's yell and the dull clank of metal on wood at the same instant. She leaped up, grabbed the knife from the deck and ran to the rail to throw it overboard. Then she whirled back —but she could see nothing of the fighters—nothing but blackness. A deep surging void rose to engulf her. * * * CHE was in her cabin with the captain taking her pulse and the cabin boy bathing her head when she came to. "Where's Barry?" she whispered. The captain smiled at her with deep relief. "Feel all right?" he questioned. She nodded impalienHy. "I always faint at the most exciting moment," she said. Then she screamed at the captain's maddening smile. "Why don't you tell me where he is!" The captain and the cabin boy both jumped. "Mr. Fielding?" the captain said, tilarmed. "Oh, he's in his cabin, I believe." She began to laugh hysterically. "That's fine. Would you mind telling me—is he dead or alive?" The captain looked more alarmed. "Oh," he said. "He's alive. But of course, he's alive." "Thanks," said Allison. She went on laughing, "Sorry to be .so inquisitive, but when I left him—" At that moment, Barry's figure darkened her cabin door. His face was bruised and swollen, one eye was black, and his coat sleeve still hung in ribbons, but he looked all in one piece. And he could grin at her. "Now what are you laughing about?" he accused. "You," she said cryptically. "I couldn't call you handsome now." The rubber men crowded in after Barry, and the elderly lighthouse keeper brought in his first- aid kit to see if Allison, too, needed treatment. "She doesn't need any of that," Barry said. "All she needs is a good strong antiseptic mouthwash." He found the bottle Allison had in her bag and superintended a thorough disinfecting, while he told her what she had missed of the fight. He gave her full credit for her part in the fray. "I was just beginning to count the seconds I could hold on to that knife arm of his when you came to the rescue. Boy, you must pack a meau bite. He wilted like a daisy in a thunderstorm under it. And once he'd dropped his knife, he lost heart in the whole mess." "What happened, to him?" Alli- son murmured between gargles. "I saw him," the captain broke in, "just as he got free of Mr. Fielding. He ran across tho deck and dived overboard. He came up by a small boat, turned on its motor and raced in to the shore." "He must have used oars coming out," Barry said. "We were around on the> other side of the deck, but we could have heard a motor." * * * A LLISON said bitterly, to the captain. "You should have gone after him! He's a murderer! As long as he's loose somewhere, Barry's life isn't safe!" Barry laughed. "That imagination of yours! He was just a poor pickpocket from Santiago who saw us tonight and thought we looked like easy pickings." He turned to appeal to the captain. "You see now why I think you should help me persuade this young woman to go back to her home?" The captain nodded. "The life down where you are going is not the kind of civilization you know," he told Allison heavily. "It is filled with many such incidents as you saw tonight." "And if you go fainting at every sight of roughness," Barry cut in dryly, "you can see for yourself you're nol suited—" "I didn't faint till the danger was past," Allison reminded him belligerently. "That's a fine way to pooh pooh me after I saved your life!" "I'm going to thank you for that later," Barry said grimly. "Right now I don't want you to get a heroine complex and think one lucky incident fits you for jungle life." Allison dropped back into her pillows with a grimace at Barry. She said to the captain, "Sometimes I think I could love that man. But sometimes he just bores me." Barry was studying his wristwatch in the flickering light of her candle. "You have just 15 minutes to pack before the boat sails," he said steadily. "Do I?" She lay watching his I determined face with languid humor, making no move. She saw the urgent command slowly fade out and stern resignation take its place. He turned and went to the door, to spin around for a last bitter word. "All right. Go into the jungle! But I hope to God what you haven't got in that pretty, frivolous head of yours you've got in your hide," he shouted. "You mean guts," she said cheerfully. "Well, who knows?" The door slammed after Barry. (To Be Continued) Contributors to County Red Cross Drive Previously reported $9,988.88 Rosalce Trout 2.00 Mr. & Mrs. J. D. Templelon.... 2.00 Mrs. F. S.

Witherspoon 1.00 Lowly Goat Can Make a Tasty Dish Batesville, April 8 — •(/!*>— The lowly goat, bull of many a practical joke and vice-versa, may yet find a place in the sun. A Batesville grocer and meat retailer, W. B. Menard, advances a theory that goat-meal, which is un- ralioned, can be just as lender and tasly as beef, pork or mullon, if Ihc animal is Irealed with proper care before and after it meets the slaughterer's axe. Goat meal isn't rationed, Menard said, because presumably the Washingoln rule-makers don't consider it totally legilimalc table fare. What Ihey don't konw, he contends, is that barbecued goat has been standard and acceptable fare al Arkansas picnics, county fairs and Ihe like ever since covered wagon days. It's all in treating the goats right in the matter of feed, he says. Give them a heavy daily ralion of corn and choice groin for aboul 30 days before Ihc kill, and you'll have a lasly dish. "Mosl folks Ihink goals Ihrivc on weeds and lin can labels," Menard declared. "But lhal kind of diet makes poor meat, regardless of the type of animal you use." So firmly convinced is Menard that he's bought a herd of 70 goats and is feeding them on corn and grain. He predicts a wide acceptance of goat meat if growers will lay off Ihe weeds and tin-can diet. Growing Shortage Beauty Operators Little Rock, April 8 —{#>)— Mrs. Zelda Mae Giss, assistant secretary of the State Cosmetic Therapy Board, said today Arkanas was faced with a growing shortage of beauly operators.
