No soap should be sent as gift from the United Sintrs. Senrt Aonicthuig else," he says, "but no soap." Dr. Mann is in Oslo to discuss ttie establishment of university courses for America rut In the Oslo University, He has been conducting a one-man soap-for-children campaign for the last tew years in the United States which has supplied 630.000 pound* of soap to needy institutions all over Europe. "France, Sweden, LrUremboVirg, Belgium. Holland—almost all European countries have now all the .soap they need—mostly through hotne production," the doctor says. 'Certainly Americans shall continue "to help where help is needed. Therefore let us send linen, bed .sheets, pillow cases. There is, lor instance, not one single incubator In Oslo. Maybe some Americans iH jzet one for the Riltshospitalet, Mrneavdelingen, Oslo." Dr. Maun gays the recovery in Norway after the war is marked, but still incomplete as Norway "has Buffered unbelievably iu the hatidn of the eCrman invader* who has riest-royed a large part of Norway's nutionnl wealth." XL II 'THE second night out. Bca Cosgrove and Henry Gough Harding sat together on Ihe atterdeek. Prom amidships the occasional opening and closing of the galley door lei lighi out into the dark nighl arid brought the sounds of Nona McGuire. AgneE Firth and George Bascombe wrangling amiably at three-handed bridge. tYom far forward. Moflie's laughter told of her amusement with a member o/ the crew. The sea had subsided into long, black swells which the Simpalico alternately climbed and slid down. Henry Harding broke a long silence. "You knew," he said, "you knew the sort ol woman Miss Stark is. Why didn't yon tell me?" "There are some things it is better for a man to find out for himself." Bea said. Harding thought that over, then nodded. "You're right. And it's a strange thing, but Mother used to say the identical thing to me. Of course, I knew Mother well enough to get the idea as to whether she really approved or not. You know. Miss Cosgrove— Bea if I may—you are like Mother in so many ways," She shivered. He took no notice, went on "You're trustworthy. So trustworthy. That's a major thing And you're understanding. You can look ahead and realize th right path a man must follow t« be true to himself. To hi5 pasl and his future. I can understam you meant bank there on thi island now. 1 couldn't then, can understand my Island Me mortal to Mother could not become a fact as Long as it was based on a partial wrong. It must entirely above reproach." Bea Cosgrov« reached out, touched him to make him sioi talking. He seized her hand and went on eagerly. "I've been thinking, trying to NOTICE Notice i* hereby given that of name* on llle in City ClerVu Office) have hied n petition with the City Council of the City of Blytheville, ArkdruftJ!. to vacate that portion of Adaina street- lying between Chickajawba Avenue and Holly Street, in the City of Blytheville, Arkansas. Said Adams SUee, runs north and south between Chickasawba Avenue *nd Kolly Streets la the City of BlyVhevllle, Arkansas su\d In the blocks between Eleventh a Twelfth Streets in the City of Bly- thevllle, Arkansas, in the following platted additions or .subdivisions said city: ' Chlckasawbn Gardens and West Gate Add. The following lots and the blocks together with the subdivisioi thereof, abutting on said street jfchat is proposed to be vacated is as gure out what I did that was .•rong. There could only be one hing. Of course, even that was clean-cut business deal. But it did have an unfortunate aftermath. It was pertectly legal. A man killed himself when he found out Ihe worthless property he houftht he was foisting on me WK ich in oil. A weakling of course. He could noi abide by the rules, or play the game. But I do remember he' had a wife. That's it! That's the way 1 can make it right, so the new Speare Island will be success." Bea Cosgrove said hoarsely, 'Make il right? How could you ever make it right?" OARD1NG said impatiently, "Why. I'll give her a part of ;he money 1 have left, of course. There's no legal claim, but some might think there's a moral one So that's what I'll do. And afterward I, [hat is we, can start again." 'Mrs. Martin won't be hard to find." •"You don't think so?" He got it suddenly. "The name! How die you know? How?" 'It's my namt." she said clearly "Bea Cosgrove Marlin. Mrs. Jim Martin, if you want it that way One time wile of—the weakling Th« man you meant." Henry Harding released hei hand, jumped to his feet. He fluiig an arm in front of his eyes as to shield them from the gleam of light from th«_ wheelhouse. "No! Not you. r Not you too!** He whirled then on his heel took the few step- lo the splint erexi rail. Hie white-clad bodi caught light as it hurtled far ou into toe darknes*. Bea screamed. Silt heard shouls orders. Th* engines of the Simpatici slowed, she heeled over as th' wheel went down hard. A search light snapped on. Bea made her way to the wheel ouse. went in and stood beside 'aptain Oak. His eyes were glued on the ompass. ''So. You told him." "I told him." "1 was watching. He ran awa? igain." Oak reached out. pulled he indicator to dead slow. "Can you find him?" Bea asked. Oak spun the wheel. "1 can uut he Simpalico on about tiie spot where he went over. He can see he lights, if that is what he wishes. He can come to us." HE man at the searchlight swiveled it across the prow The dark surface of the water was itreaked with white foam in the circle of the spotlight. The first cry was fainl, barely distinguishable above the lonely sound oi water. Miguel Oak rang again. The engines stopped their lowest throb. The Simpatico lay dead and silent. The cry was repeated. Louder. Henry Cough Harding mover) into the circle o/ light. He waj swimming strongly. n a few moments he was helped over the rail. The time in the sea had healed the breach in his shell. He pushed away helping hands, strode toward the wheelhouse. "Captain Oak! Ah. Captain Oak. I must compliment you on your seamanship and fast thinking. But that does not excuse you for the negligence in not repairing that broken rail, Someone not as strong a swimmer as myself might have fallen overboard." Miguel Oak gave the signal and the Simpalico came \o lile. "I'll have the rail repaired," he said. "See that you do. I may not feel it necessary to report your negligence." He appeared to notice Bea for the 6rsl time. "And as for you. Mrs. Martin, if you will' get in touch with my attorneys, they will pay you for your trouble." He strode away, slammed the galley door behind him. Captain Oak put the Simpatico back on her course toward the mainland, turned the wheel over to the man who had worked the searchlight. He took Bea Cosgrove by the arm. "Come," he said. THE END FRECKLES AND HIS FRIENDS BY MERRILL BLOSSER Business?
