Col. Davenport Johnson was relieved as lonunandant of Hamilton Field, Ihe army bombing .base at San Francisco, and transferred to a secondary post til Chanule Field, Raiito.ul, 111. C'haiuite Field, in military parlance, is "down (he river," tlie "St. Helena" of (he yinny Air Coriis. Tlje army said the transfer was routine, but it followed in quids sequence the act of. Colonel Johns-oil in ilyinf Indiana's, Presidential Hopeful McNult from S«n Francisco to wjlljoul aulhorixalion from the War Department, an up! distinctly against army regulations. To make matters worse, the colonel not only flew McNutt, but carried with him^.a delek'atipu of enthusiastic ( Indiana Democrats who hud met McNult-When he arrived by trans- ocean plane in San Francisco. There is all reason to believe Colonel Johnson acted in good faith. McNult is a past legion commander ami KOV- i ernor general of the Philippines, and £as such occupies sort of a tiuasi-mili- 1= (ary position. McNutt was on a semiofficial trip to Washington. And lliu colonel wh.ed both his chief of staff and (he War Department for permission to make the flight. He unfortunately let himself be swept away by MtrNnit's haste and didn't wail for replies. Permission was denied. Friendh of McNnU arc DOW crying inter-Democratic, politics and claim Colonel Johnson was transferred with presidential knowledge—us a reprimand for McNutt lhat he .was a little hasty in starting .his presidei.itial boom. Indiana's Senator Minion asks for an investigation. Pei haps it is parly polities. Perhaps the administration is sharp-shooling at the ubimiitous McNull.

Tonight, however, the, bosun's orders lo the crew were muled. Sailors spolto lo one another in Quick rasping whispers that made Polly's flesh creep a litltc. * * £ . QABELL passed her as he was going below to his cabin. He was startled when she spoke lo him. "What are you doing here, Polly? Didn't Jerry tell you (o go to bed?" "No," Polly answered, "he didn't loll me anything. He's forgotten I'm alive, Cabell. . . . Not, that I'm sulking about it," she added with a low 'laugh. "I'm loo excited to be sulking. Do you think the British will see us tonight, Cabe)J?" "I'm sure they won't if they're as sleepy as J am. The old French pilot tells me lie never know (he English to attack at iiight. By morning we'll be in the Atlantic. I'm going lo get some sleep now so I can relieve Jerry later on. . . . Good night, sea bride!

"He's quiet and' larnc and he wants to filudy mediciiiQ. . . . BJaybe -Jerry told you why J came pver here? II was to get money from my gnmdfa.lher's estate so _Dicl< could go lo medical school.

Suppose they speak us?" ' 11 We'd sut-ron dcr and be bonrdccl. There'd be some pretty formalities, after which we'd ail he taken aboard Johnny Bull's ship. You'd be Iveated with couiv tesy. Jerry and 7 would be locked in a slinking hold with the crew." * * * A ND what then, Cabell?" ' "We'd cruise a while, and when Johnny Bull had taken an:other American vessel or two, or a French 01*10, the hold wo.uld be rather full and they'd lake us to Portsmouth, a port we're oft just about now, over there lo northward." "What's at Portsmouth?" "The worst prison on God's earth. Dartmoor, they built it for Iheir French prisoners about six years ago. It's a rock fomb on a bleak moor where' 10,000 men can be buried alive with no \tou- blc at all. . . . But if you think I'll tell you, tales about Dartmoor prison, yWrc mistaken, my girl." "You don't need to," Polly answered fiercely. "I've got imagination, haven't I? ... Wait, don't go, Cabell! , .' . Isn't there some place .else they rnight confine Americans?" "I hear the hulks aren't full yet." "What arc they?" "Old ships without rigging, tyrned into prisons. There's a fleet .of -thcrn.iigai-"..Chatham where the Medway" jo.irji- IKe'Thames.
