Tlie Detroit Lions are heirs to two of the finest of last fall's college players, Frank fiinkwich of Georgia and Dave Schroiner, but their chances of using them until after the war arc remote. Sirikwich already is on active duty with the Marines nnd Schrcincr is reported facing induction into the armed forces. That's the.way it reads in mosl cases, but there was the slim hope that possibly five per cent of the 300 collegian draft last night may be available for the 1043 season. Breaking up the three day meeting, the magnates threw the names on the suspended Cleveland Hams' roster up for grabs last night with the Chicago Bears gelling Ihc best of the blind lottery. They drew out Dante Magnani and Jim Bon ton, two of the Rams' aces, and aren't too hard up for players anyway. With an eye on the future more than next season, the Bears picked their collegians carefully, drawing five iincmen in their first eight choices and also bagging halfbacks Bob Stcubcr of Missouri, Fred (Dippy) Evnns of Notre Dame and Jim .Jurkovich of California. The 1 championship Washington Redskins also drew a neat assortment including Jack Jenkins, Vanderbilt fullback, and William Dut- lon, Pittsburgh halfback, plus three well-regarded Notre Dame men: End Bob Dove, Center Waller ROUNDUP By HUGH FULLErVfdrJ, JR.

Allison felt a restlessness stir within her. She tried playing shuffleboard with the ship's captain but she couldn't hold her mind to the game. Her eyes kept sweeping furtively the length of the deck and holding on the door of cabin F. But it didn't open. Barry had kept to his cabin the last two days. Allison had seen the little Mexican cabin boy carry trays lo the door at mealtime. Breakfast was just over and Allison preceded Captain Hooker through the narrow doorway out onto the deck. "What time do we dock tomorrow, Captain?" Allison smiled at the short, heavy man who walked beside her. "With a sea like this we should reach Puerto Barrios by 5 in the morning." His eyes twinkled humorously as he shot the girl a side glance and caught ••the quick frown that crossed her face. "Don't take it so seriously, Miss Topping. Quarantine doesn't open until 7. If you can sleep through the noises of unloading cargo I will see that you are not disturbed." Allison laughed. "Don't worry about my sleep," she retorted. "I've had so much rest this trip I feel like a bear." The captain laughed. He stopped as they reached the iron stairway that led up to the crow's nest. "Even a freighter captain has to make some pretense of working," he said lightly. "And this is where my day starts. Is there anything I can do to make you more comfortable?" "Thanks, no. I think I'll take a couple of turns around the deck and then settle down with a book. Some people think they're good company." # * * OHE swung along the sun^ splashed deck with long, easy stt-ps. Tlafc sun caught the gold in her soft roll of hair and then poured down ovttr her powder blue open-necked blouse, her canary skirt. Her flat-heeled shoes made her look smaller, less sophisticated. She had dressed carefully that morning. As she passed Barry's cabin she stopped heavily and slowly. But the door didn't open, and she went on to her own cabin. Back on deck with a book, she settled herself in a deck chair and tried to read. Her eyes kept deserting the pages, restively turning out over the calm s&a where an early morning mist t^stooned itself like a curtain of sh£er, blue gauze above the water. She laid her head back and watched with half-closed eyes. She could hear only the low rumbling noise of the diesel engines, and the musical rippling of the sea as it slid along the ship's hull. Slowly the discontent left her face. A mischievous smile appeared on her delicate jlips. In quick decision, she lifted her purse from beside her chair and took out a pencil and notebook. She wrote the message slowly, carefully, and when she had finished, she read it through several times. A LLISON opened her eyes sleep•^ ily in the total darkness of her cabin as she heard the rattle of the anchor chain. She lay quietly for only a moment as she heard running footsteps on the deck, and then slid from her warm bed, glanced at the luminous traveling clock on her dresser. It was just 10 minutes before 5 o'clock and they were dropping anchor in the bay of Puerto Barrios. She switched on a light and dressed lurriedly, selecting a mist green sports dress. After she had quickly brushed her hair she tied a nar- •ow band of brown ribbon under it where it fell in waves to her shoulders, and made a neat tailored bow on top. She gave herself a hasty glance in the mirror, tossed her polo coat around her shoulders and went out on deck. A thin pallor of light wa£ melting the darkness in the eastern sky. Shadowy figures moved about 011 the wharf, shouting in Spanish. Allison stood alone at the ship's rail. Her heart suddenly quickened as she heard steps behind her, and then she felt the touch of a hand on her arm. "I really didn't expect to find you up at this hour," Barry said seriously. Allison turned to face him. "You mean you thought it was one of my practical jokes?" ,she said lightly. "I don't know about the practical part—but the joke part—yes. When the cabin boy brought your note I said to myself, I'll'try her once more. Can't be more of a chump than I was the other day. When can we get this quarantine business over with?" Allison felt her face flush. "It will be a little later than I expected—" Even in the pale light she could see Barry's jaw tighten, Allison put her hand on his arm. "I'm sorry, really I am, but I just had to see you before we left the boat!" she said. Barry's face was stern as he said, "Frankly, I don't like getting up in the middle of the night to hear funny stories." The mischievous lights in Allison's eyes had faded. She looked imploringly up at the tall man. "There's no joke about what I wanted to say!" "Well—" "It's about the other night. . . . That man that attacked you—I heard him say a Quiche word. I knew then that I was to blame. I want to apologize!" Barry didn't speak. "I really had a motive more important than the apology—that is, more important to you. I thought it might be helpful if I introduced you to Renaldo. He was my father's attorney down here for years and is now managing my chicle plantation, He probably knows more people in Guatemala than any other man." "Is there a gag to this, too?" Barry said sharply. Allison whirled and walked up the deck. Then Barry started after her. He caught her by the arm and spun her around. Tears were misted on her long lashes. "Oh! I know I'm acting like a heel!" Barry blurted. "But after all you have given me the runaround." Allison smiled and looked up at him with the old twinkle in her eyes I guess it's like the little boy who yelled 'fire' so often that when the house did burst into flames no one would believe him." "I hope this Renaldo business is on the level," Barry said. "Because his name is on the list the office gave m-2 to look up down here." "Praise Allah for that list!" Allison teased. "Otherwise I know you wouldn't have believed me!'' Allison was like her old self again, gay, buoyant and taunting. "If you were a gentleman you'd take me to the dining room for a cup of coffee," she laughed. "If I were a gentleman," Barry said as they walked to the dining i-oom, "I wouldn't have anything to do with women lik« you."
