Yet, the AAA's own Executive Committee does a commercializing job that would be a credit to the best professional promoter. In selecting sites for state bas- tetball tournaments, the Execu iive Committee considers carefully the cash bids of would-be hosts; which areas have teams most likely to go far in the meets arid thus keep the turnstiles clicking It certainly was no surprise, then; .that Jonesboro was awarded the Class A senior boys tournament this year. That city has the clearrcut championship favorite; a gymnasium which seats about 3,00 persons and agreed to /fork over to the AAA all the profits — plus helping visiting teams' financially. The AAA Executive Committee doesn't deny that it is •puttngi' dol- larsran'd-cents t emphasis O/'Toh the school boy sport and no eifffiEt s made to. hide it. . : .' "It's unfortunate," says Executive Secretary Johnie Burnett, 'but we have to have money to operate." The association gets nearly half of its operating funds from the basketball tclurneys. "We shouldn't even have to consider money and the strength of .ocal teams when we pick a tour- lament site," Burnett added. 'They don't in other states." . Burnett says high school: assoc- ations in jnost other states havo .alien the- pressure Off 'the state* ;ournaments by getting, their reve me from regular season' tourneys. The take cuts, from all the little nvitatibrial meets. Then, the only thing to consider n -pickling a state tournament site s whether a gym will seat all thu folks who'll vyant to see it, and If enough suitable gyms are available, the meet can be given to a different section of the state each year, Both oi' those conditions however, will be met .at Jonesboro. The class A tourney has been played atFayetteviUe .the past two years. Now it goes .to';a' far cor ner of Arkansas, where, no one will deny, basketball interest is aerennially the highest in the state. Put that'together with the facts that the Arkansas State College ;ym at Jonesboro seats more than any arena in the state except the Coliseum at Little Rock and that ;he home team is likely to see why the AAA expects record breaking attendance and receipts this year. The crowds also will be swelled ay the addition of a fifth day to the tournament • program. This eliminates morning games which many working people can't make. -The Hope Bobcats .will take on >erhaps their toughest district foe lere today when the DcQueen Leopards come to the local court.

Though polite to her always, Shelly well knew that th< very social Carrs had never really ao cepted her.- She was a stranger to them and to the little mldrwest cltv of NorfolU, where the Carrs resided a night club singer of uncertain back ground whom the whole Carr family believed Stephen had : married tnipul slvely. Aware oi their subtle snubs Shelly determines .to prove her inetal As she and Stephen drive to the fashionable home of the senior Carrs Shelly pities the Itinerant workers who have come here on new projects, many of them- living In pathetically squalid quarters. During the gay birthday party. Stephen astounds his folk, by announcing that he has joined wit) the armed forces and will soSn be off to the Pacific for- a rear. Outraged his doting father demands to know: "What will become of Shelly? What of the mcrtinal practice which Stephen had so arduously built?" CHAPTER FIVE MAY ANNA . CARR was a simple woman, a mother by nature and she would have'been no more had fate been iJindcr. She was not, and perhaps never had been; pretty. Her face was long, almost sheep- like. Her eyes were china-blue, and her abundant hair was now a, somewhat faded blonde. She wore it in a smooth pompadour, just as she had worn it as a young woman. Her expensive clothes looked bunchy and dowdy upon her. She was exactly as she would have been had Everett operated a grocery store. She'd been all over the World: she'd visited the rich and the great, and had entertained them in her own home, but she had acquired no gloss of sophistication. " ' . ' Her first reaction to Stephen's announcement had been shock at her realization that her son—her "baby"—would soon be in physical danger, but she had recovered enough to consider other results, •'What about your practice, Stevle?" she asked him anxiously, "You're, so well liked here In town. And, of course, there is the plant, but 1 mean your other practice. You say you'll be gone a year, but that's a long time for the people Who lean on you as their doctor. Laura Jarvls-—-and then tt.ere's Loretta Ransome's tjaby—it's next month," She paused iessjy, Stephen spoHe gently, smiles? •J Know, Mother, •, there are other- doctors ID town." Mrs. Carr's red,-pa|r$ed Ups, - '- (Jlsdain, Ang Stephen Jstug^j. ' " «. Excited comment popped up Ilk' small explosions all around -the room, "Is he a ffooci man?" aske< Everett sharply. "Yes, Dad, he's a very good man I've known him for years. He Was as a matter of fact,' the' one vh,< put me on to the aluminum-dus therapy at the plant." ; "Canadian?" •.';,>•/' ''. ( • "Oh, no. He. comes, from'i the southwest, originally, 'He's d o n i some work In the Pennsylvania mining districts.

He's very good." Through all the talk, Shelly had not been permitted to sit' sljenj, but she had offered no' definite opinions; her contrlbutippe had largely consisted of a smiling, murmured, "Yes, I Hnov," to the opinions of others, But now Mrs. Walsh turned purposefully t6 her and asked, directly, what she thought of this radical move of Stevie's, "1 am quite convinced," »h« paid, 'that good doctors are n«ed«d lit Korea. And. since I fljrmly ^ Jieve—" she looked dOWP Rt b hands folded in her lap,' looked up again, "—that Stephen is the best of, all doctors—^well—* Sh« lifted her pretty shoulders In an press»ve shrug. Every man in th« room laughed warmly, $ut the women regarded her coolly, Even her m o t h e r-ln-law wish you had talked Mm out of It, Shelly," she compJalnfld. "Oh, I could no^ hJiVf . . ? "Yes, you could, If I can man* age Everett, you can manage Stevie. They're exaqdy alike," -Yes, gifts," s»ld Shelly bav# This pleased Mw. gar*, »n4 K d been • worth Baying 1 , • though Shq»y had spoHen ously", "a girl wants to show up well .before a man." Everett chuckled. "Good girl!" he 'approved. "Though it'a going tp be tough on you, Shelly. You'll miss the boy." The 'Violet eyes lifted, dark and large. "Oh, yes," she said softly, "I shall miss him!" •Again the family group took over the discussion, Ruth's voice and -her strong face now the most prpntfnent. • "Maybe Shelly and her mother cat) live together, 1 ' Ruth said briskly. "You know— get an apartment—" Oh, Ruth, don't be silly!" cried Stephen, v sharply. "I've explained many times that Shelly's mother needs trained care, and that Shelly has neither the strength nor the trailing to give to an Invalid. She provides her mother with eve r y comfort,- goes to see her every si* weeks — Don't talk about her, duty! She does it, and will continue? to do- it. Besides, Shelly has other duties, She's going to stay right in our home, and take care of things. Aren't you, darling?" She looked up, smiled and' nodded. "What sort of things?" asked Everett suspiciously, "Why, she'll pay the light bilj,-^ thlngs like that Keep the moths out ot my civvies." This was rewarded by iaugbter f and people then moved about; Kate said something about having to go ipme, one of the children had been little croupy the night before, Bach one wanted a personal word \jrtth Stephen; his mother stayed elo«.e at his side, as if to place her body as a shield between him and danger.
