Both farm classifications are restricted to those "necessary ti cultural occupation or agrieultura endeavor essential to tho war of fort," but liberal interpretation ha opened them to most full tim farm workers. Elimination of the 3 B classifi cation put men in essential acti vities on the same fooling as those in other work •— except work specifically declared to hold no dcfer.- mcnt rating whatsoever, even for men with several children — unless they are esential individuals. This appeared to reverse the policy of the War Manpower Commission, which has charge of selective service, to persuade shifts to the more esenlial lino of work, but, spokesmen said the same — and quicker — result could be obtained by expanding the non de- ferable list. Futhermoro, they said, (ho postponement afforded by 3 B rating might have been slight since many local boards have exhausted Iheir supply of childless married men in 3 A an have begun reclassifying such men out of 3 B into the 1 A. They added Ihe same condition would have prevailed when the calling of fathers began. Boards were instructed to: Consider, whether men reclassi- 3-C, 3-A, 2-C, 2-A or 2B before fied out of 3 - B should be put in putting them in 1A. "Bear in mind" that they can put a man in 2 A or 2-B even his lino of work nor his particular job is on the national list of essential activities and job - occupations, since the list is "only a uuide" to help determine essentiality. Continue, "so far as possible," to call single men ahead of married men, regardless of when the marriages took place. Calling of fathers is expected to begin generally around July 1.

"Do you have mules pulling carriages or something?" Barry laughed louder. Even Renaldo's thin dark lips struggled with a smile. "No, Miss Topping," he said gently.' "The mules carry the luggage—and the passengers." Allison's delicate chin lifted haughtily. "That's ridiculous," she smd'cxl. "There's a train. I saw it. I shall go on that." Barry exchanged a helpless glance with Renaldo. "Do that," he said in a choking voice. "Tip the engineer and smile at him. I know he'll turn off the tracks and take you just where you want to go in the jungle. Or maybe you could transfer to a subway." She gave him a wide, mirthless smile. "Are you kidding'.'" she said. Her voice was flat and a liitle frightened. "I've been trying to tell you for five days I'm not kidding," Barry groaned. She turned to Renaldo and said, "Where's the hotel?" He pointed it out—a flat little building raised on piers just back of where they sat. Beyond it, corrugated iron shacks littered the glaring coast before the high green wall of the jungle closed in. Indians, dogs, pigs, naked children were everywhere, in dirty, noisy confusion. Vultures floated above in the white-hot sky. "I don't think I'd like it there," she said stubbornly. ''You'll think it's heaven after a few days in, the jungle," Barry retorted. Siie shrugged. "Who knows?" Barry gave it up. With an impatient shrug, he said to Renaldo, "I wish you luck with her." Renaldo rose with a troubled smile. "Thank you," he said to Barry. "Now if you will excuse me, I have many things to arrange before wo can begin our journey. I will first have your luggage carried to your rooms. You will have no other worry. Make watching the iew small boats on the glistening blue water, while the sun rose higher in the sky and the heat poured down, in heavy, moist waves. Small beads of perspiration formed across the girl's wide forehead beneath the brim of her hat. She wiped them away furtively and smiled when Barry caught her. "Aren't you going to tell me it's hot?" she jeered. Barry grinned at her cheerfully "I am not," he retorted. "I've turned you over to Renaldo bag and baggage. I've an idea I've betn handling you all wrong anyway. I'll bet you came down here in the first place because someone dared you to." A secret smile twitched the corners of her mouth. "Maybe," she murmured. "After all, an owner has a right to manage his own plantation ..." "Oh. It was Renaldo's letters then. He wrote you not to come." "Well, practically." "Renaldo is a smart man. I'll bet he's an efficient one." "He's pretty, too," said the girl with a mutinous laugh. "Just the same I have a life to live. And if I want to—" "Throw it away," Barry cut in dryly, "it's yours. Go ahead. No- the big *tty's glamor aoiis lor a single afternoon. "What do you want for lunch? he said. "You'll get tortillas." "You make life so easy." She urned the full battery of her blue orbs on him in mock adoration. * * * T HEY settled down into the bamboo chairs again and the waiter hurried out. From his stuttered explanations, they found that the thoughtful hand of Renaldo had been in the luncheon preparations. He brought on plates of soup, then chicken, rice and hot red peppers, and finally bowls of fruit, mangoes, bananas, pineapple. When the slanting rays of sun had lost their violence, they took a walk around the town. They peered into closed steamship offices and watched the little locomotive wheeze away from the small station 'bungalow. Allison brought her camera and took pictures of the slender coconut palms that leaned against the boardwalk, and the pelicans preening body's stopping you." A fat little man in soiled white ducks waddled up the hill to tell them their rooms were ready. They followed him down to the hotel and parted at their different doors. An hour later they met on the veranda to stroll back up to the small restaurant for lunch. They had both had* showers arid a change of clothes and for, a few minutes they felt fresh, "almost cool. The very young naked native population clustered around them, staring at Allison with round, dazed eyes, at the daintiness of her sheer blue cotton frock, at the wide leghorn hat that framed as it shaded the delicate oval of her face. "Well," Barry thought humorously, "she's dazzled keener minds than theirs." Now that he had found she was in capable hands, she was no longer the irritating responsibility she had been on the boat. He was content to drop his own problems for the moment and concentrate on the remarkable prank of fate that had- put him in this tropic village with one of their plumage with heavy beaks. She screamed with delight at two parrots lumbering stodgily across the sand before the walk. It was sunset before they turned back. On the hotel veranda in the rose haze of the tropic evening Renaldo was smoking an evening pipe. "Did you have an enjoyable day?" he greeted them. "Not bad at all. Did you find that guide for me?" Barry asked. Renaldo frowned. "I am sorry to say I did not," he said. Barry stared at him. "But I thought you were sure." Renaldo turned troubled eyes on him. "Somehow," he said with slow emphasis, "the word has gotten out where you are going. These guides are not fond of trespassing into Quiche territory- I offered them fabulous sums." "But how could it have gotten out?" puzzled Barry. Allison was fanning herselt with her wide hat.

The Italian newspaper La Tribuna Illusrata was quoled in another Berlin broadcast as declaring Hitler and Mussolini will decide "whether and when" New York City is to be bombed. The new German Heinkel - 1 7 7 bomber could easily bomb N e w York from air bases in Western France," the newspaper said.

"That was a trick I missed." "The only thing I could suggest," said Renaldo decisively, "is for you to go with us into the plantation and take some guides I have there, whom I know will go. If not, I'll go with you myself." Barry stood glaring m indecision. "A long way around," he objected. "But if it's the only W ay— It's decent of you." Allison's mocking chuckles went on. (To Be Coutiawed) Ex-Commerce Chief Roper Dies Sunday Wahington, April 12 — (/P) — Daniel C. Roper, 76, President Roosevelt's first secretary of commerce, died at his home last night after an illness of everal month.
