L. Glailish of Osceola as county judge. The matter of his selection of an appointee, of course, was one for the governor to determine. Naturally his appointment of Jlr, Ghulibh will meet approval in some quarters and disapproval in others. But by making the appointment the governor has removed the cloud of uncertainty hovering over the ofiice since the state supreme court held that Doyle Henderson of BIytheville and not Mr. Gladish received the majority of the legal votes cast in the August, 1938, primary. The only way the situation could be deiired up was by action on the gov- i ernor's part and lie has acted. 1 Trailing the Trailers Ever since the invention of the aulo- trailer, local laws and regulations have been trying lo catch up with it. Pour new court decisions, according to the American Society of Planning Officials, have helped to clarify the problems which have grown up around the trailer. The Indiana Supreme Court, for in-' stance, has held that cities have a legal right to limit the stay of trailers within their limits, even though parked on private land: This, the court held, was • a reasonable exercise of the police power to protect the lives, health, and property of citizens. A Michigan justice court decision made trailers subject to local, housing acts. New York slate's Supreme Co ur t ruled that n portable ''trailer" linich- . wagon set up on a foundation and connected with electricity is taxable as real property. A U. S. district court in Texas' ruled in an insurance case that a.trailer detached from its unto is a building 1'ov legal purposes. Thus the laws, freedom from which was-one of the aUractions of "trailer- ing," are beginning to catch up with the trailers.

Warfare in his day, though, was a coi)iparntlve- ly simple matter and not a very sanguinary affair, you went mil upon the trail of an cnoniy nml came lo close grips with him. Then it was a case of the belter man winning and there was the joy and thrill of personal triumph such as a modern fistic' glndlntor gels In delivering n knockout to his adversary. And one then did 'not_.flml glory in attacking women and children. All thai lins changed through the years and Alley Oop Is due for a shock when he finds out how we make war these days. There is little ol physical contact between foes now. Instead the opposing forces for the most part keep su tar lumrl that they do not see cacl] other, but with long-range guns lire deadly missilcs for miles, otic of which exploding, would have wiped out King GHZ, Alley and all of their tribe. Clouds of lethal gas are released from bombs and soldiers choke aiicl die miserably without an opportunity of striking back. Overhead the air is lillDd with winged ships which lly much swifter tlifiii llie pterodactyls which Oop knew nnd feared, raining death and destruction upon Ibose below and sparing neither women nor children In their terrible work of devastation. Instead of a few bashed heads and broken bones, the battle of today leaves In Us wnke a horrible car. nage and utter ruin. . . '• ' • What would Alley Oop. think of a clylllzuUQn whose greatest.achievement seems lo be the development at machines and engines which can produce wholesale slaughter and horrors never dreamcil ol In the days when he went fortli as a benighted savnge lo wrenk his wrath upon Ills enemies? Well might lie scratch his shaggy head, wrinkle his receding brow and bring all the power of his one-cylinder brain lo bear upon Ihp subject. Whereupon, he might be excused if he made sonic such remark as this, "So Uils Is civilization! Tills Is wlmt hundreds of thousands of years of man's progress 'from barliur- Ism luis wrought!

CHAPTER I J^T" first, when she saw f|ie powder blue gabardine suit, Iris did not think about Dart WhU- takcr. At first, there was just the chop window and thp suit wjlh the rich, gleaming strand of mink fur Hung tvtrelcssly over one shoulder and (ho long suede gloves on the floor nearby. The suil did something to her. Cryslalized a desire that had lain dormant, threading its uneasy way through so, many tilings she had done up to now. Then Iris remembered Bart. She had to do something about Bart, really, she had tried everything, done everything—still they were about where they were a year ago. Business was bad, Bart was cautious, thrifty and loo proud to .marry when he felt he couldn't support a wife, "I'll t;ike it with nie, thanks," Iris lold the salesgirl. And the Wllo blue book in her pm-se said, "L-iisn $15, balance due, $G5, pay- menls weekly." Everyone knew Iris Ives, knew she worked in (lie dean's office, and was the besl-dres,se<l girl on the campus, the most popular. Few remembered that she had been the best-dressed girl in 1031, or that she was the belle of Fraternity Row, that year, though. Only Iris, and a tiny calendar in her bedroom, knew that. By the lime she had discovered the tailored linen blouse with the French cuffs, the alligator pumps, and the pinseal purse, the weekly pay checks of Miss Iris Ives were mortgaged for six monlhs fo come. Sut by ilien, Iris didn't care. By then, she was sure, Bart would change his mind. The suit would do that. "You ought to model, Miss Ives," Hie. salesgirl had flattered her, when she tried on Die suit. Se- crcUy, Iris had always thought she should too. But models led precarious lives, and a private see- rets ry, while not getting anything elaviorous in the way of salary, did have a definite sum to depend on • :ach week. "\3o you budget, Miss Ives?" the salesgirl went on. Iris nodded. She honestly believed she did. She honestly believed this was the trick in looking like a debutante"; on a private secretary's salary. At least, she bought her clothes in budget shops, agreed to pay so much a week, and because she was a living, lovely advertisement for the clothes, was able to explain, prettily, to credit managers, why (his week's inslallment would have to go over until next week, because she had to go to the dentist. (Or fhe doctor, or pay her insurance, of which there was none, only it was a grand alibi, or anything else that occurred to her at t TC time as suilable explanation for robbing Peter lo pacify I 3 aul.) » » t 'p-lAT night, there were many ' ' now things in the little two- room apartment where she jn- viled Bart, for Saturday suppers. There was the deep lounge chair she bought because Bart liked to read the paper while she prepared the food she had purchased from Mrs. Kemble's home kitchen shop. There was the smoking stand, and both would cost her but a dollar a week, and (he set of glazed blue pottery dishes included as premiums with the bargain chair. There was the food—temptingly old-fashioned home-cooked baked beans from a huge crock Mrs. Kcmblc cooked each Saturday, and hot crisp rolls, and brown bread. There was Hie salad Iris assembled from leltuce, halves of canned pears and pineapple rings, and a jar of Mrs. Ktemble's homemade salad dressing. There was the steak. And a strawberry shcrlcake, because it was late Mt.y and berries were in from Florida, and a box of prepared shortcake biscuit required only a bit of milk, and a hot oven to transform it into a delectable des- Then sfic remembered Corf. She. look the suit, so ninc/i down, so inic/i a monlli. sert. Bui tlie stealc .was ihe main item. Even Bart raved about it. "Good steak feed costs you $1.50 apiece, these times; and you cook one for a fraction of that, iris. I don't see how you do it." Iris never told him. Bart was a hound for figures and if he knew how much these Saturday suppers cost her, ll)ero'd be :i riot, Too, lie thought she cooked Ihe things herself. t * * C^TILL it was worth ii. Bart had his own little radio sliop, and was coining >along Tine. And he was by far the most attractive man she had ever known. Though he hadn't reached the point yet wherein ho realized the value of dressing to look tho parl of a successful, rising young business man. "What for, Iris?" lie argue:!, when she mentioned a sale on men's "suils once, 'iWhy should I mortgage my future just to keep up with (lie Joneses? This suit is id enough for me—had it jjVrce irs now, and there's still plenty of good wear left in it. A'man has to think of his business these days. Ho ha hadn't bought tho suit. Bnl secretly, Iris speculated on what she could do lo improve him. lie was really quite handsome. Not quite so tall as some of the glamor hoys she had known from Fraternity Row, but well-built. A sturdy, dependable young man, Bart Whittaker. Ambitious, thritly. A'good catch.. And when a girl was sliding into her 26th year, she had to consider such tilings. * * * r PHE evening paper was folded on Ihe smoking stand, and Iris stood behind the new chair, wearing the new slipper satin house coal (hat zipped (o the very floor, and made her waist look not an inch more than 20 inches. Bart flung open the door and grinned "Hi, honey," he greeted her. Not noticing the new housecoat which had cost $11, and was palest lilac satin with a sash of deep royal purple, noticing only the new lounge chair, so deep and inviting and comfortable looking. And the paper on Ihc smoking stand. "Hey, what is this, a wifely touch? Or do I notice a liUle solid comfort offered the lired business man?" "Goof," Iris chuckled, but secretly, her mind was winging lack to the new suit, spread out on 1he bed, and th« new fur scarf •md gloves, me handmade linen Jlouse. After supper, she'd put 'hem on, to wear to Iho movies. 'After she had fed the brute, she'd spring Ihe new suit, nnd it would do what the lilac sfiu'u f. louso coat, and the good food, ind the comfortable lounge chair iad failed to do. It would make Bart realize she was an aliiaclive jirl. Make him see she wouldn't languish around unnoticed, unappreciated forever. Over the shortcake, Iris mentioned the oiler the dean's wife had made her. "They're going to Japan for the summer vacation, Bart, and ihey ivanl me fo go along too. Ho plans .o do a book on his travels," "Great," Bart began enthusiastically, "chance ot a lifetime for you honey. Nothing like travel— and with all your expenses paid." Iris cleared away the things, slacked them in ihe sink. She slipped onl of:the bouse-coat and into the suit. Then she-came out quietly, so not lo rouse Bart from Uis paper. Standing before him, she swept the paper aside and watched recognition leap alive in his face. "Yon sec, darling," she told him regretfully, "l might not come back to Llnwood, after a,trip like that Though of course (here's a chance I might decide not lo accept the offer. If . . . if, . ." "Look, honey," Bart began pa- lienlly, "I'm barely clearing $50 a week now. That wouldn't run a house and pay expenses. So you'd belter . . ." The richness of the wool gabardine turned hoi- eyes to deep violet, and the mink added entrancing shadows lo her lovely face. "I'm. making $25, Bart. That's $75. And we're not growing any younger. If we can manage as we are, apart, now, we could save by pooling expenses and income. I know we could. There are budgets." His brown eyes studied her excitedly. Then a big grin broke over his face. Budgets! It would take a girl like Iris to know about ,• budgets. Sensible, she was; smart.' Figure every penny. "I've Ibis suit, Bart—I vouldn'l have to buy anything else." "I should say not. It's a knockout, honey. But let's figure this." (To Be Conllnucil) THE FAMILY DOCTOR T. M. *«*. M. *. »*T. »ff Elementary Good Sense Regarding Toothbrush Sometimes Forgotten UY mi.
