CUP)—Eight, veterans announced yesterday that I they had formed an organization! to oppose the nomination of Gen. Douglas MacArthur for president.

INC salrt veterans here and In other cities hart contacted and the "plan Is snowballing." He said "at least 500 former servicemen" had pledged llic-ir support within a few hours after the veterans established the or^aniza-l tlon which will he known as "Vet- ! trans Against MncArthur.' 1 Berger said tile croup opposed MacArthur because "of his general t aloofness from the people, his use of violence In 1032 to halt the ' vcict'ans' mulch in Washington, his '. [,censorship of the press in Japan, ' *nd the evidence this gives of his anti-democratic leanings." He said Ihe VAM "stands for Gen. Dwlght Eisenhower in his condemnation of military men who seek public office on the basis of military achievement rather than civilian qualifications." "W C feel that MacArthur will undoubtedly engineer the biggest stampede in Republican party history by a timely 'I-Have-Returned' arrival shortly before the GOP Na- • tional convention in June," Berger ' said "We want ot put a damper on ' surh a boom." !

"Rlnda, how long was it ader you saw Tommy that you smelled the gas? I mean, doesn't it seem funny that Tommy didn't smell t?" "Well, it was quite a bit later. I had another cigaret and Ihen 1 turned: out the light. I tried to sleep but I tossed—you know, one of those horrible nights ... It was quite a while laler that I remembered I'd seen some new magazines down in the hall so I got my robe and slippers and started down. When I went past your door—the door was closed but you know how you get a whifl oi gas . , . ?" Ann oleated her skirt carefully and didn't look at Rinda. "Was Rush's door closed, too?" she asked quietly. "Yes. Because I hammered on it and shouted after I got you as far ns the hall." Ann made up her mind swiftly, not slopning to consider the consequences her act might bring. "Would you do something tor me while you're in Cleveland, Rinda?" "Why. ot course." "Just drop oil a package. And a note. But I'll have to write the note. I'll do il right away." She walked into the house like an automaton with Rinda by her side. 'Arc you nil right?" Rinda asked anxiously in the hall. "Your face is flushed." "li's tlie hc[il," Ann said ex- prciijionlesFly. "It is hot. isn'l it'.'" "Not very." Uintta said. She looked nt Ann quecrly and then snid. impulsively, "Ann, why don't you go with me? Into Cleveland?" "Go with you?" Ann stopped still in Ihe dim hall. She eould go into Cleveland with Rinda. She could just toss some clothes into a bag and go with her. For that matter, she would never need to come bark. She would never need to. But what did lhat gain .icr? How did that Help? Wasn't it simply evasion? postponement of the inevitable? Because U the monstrous idea thai had taken possession o( her brain were true— "You're sweet. Rinda." she said. "But I don't think 1 feel up to it." Hinda bit her lip and then said. "All right. Ann. You go write your note." • • • 1TPSTAIRS, she met Rush in the ^ hall. "How d'you feel?" Rush asked. "Stiil rocky?" "No, I teel pretty gooa." It she could only tell him! It she could only rest her head against him and let the words say themselves. Well, why not? Why couldn't she? Together they eoulcl work it out, deride <vhat to do. Her pulses pounded, her knees felt as though they were dissolving. Ajid she rieard again her voice asking Rinda, "Was Rush's door closed, too?" and liintla'? voice answering, "Yes. Because 1 hammered on it and shouted after—" No, she couldr't seek solace from anyone just yet. Not even Rush. "Well, I want you to la^e it •a.-'y. [\inda will be jso.'.e for a ew d;tvii and you'll have a ei;anrc o iv?i up>. [,et l.auiie lake over 'or a lillle while. It won't hurt ier. In fact—" He stopped and Ann raised her luce. "In (net—what?" lie kissed her ehcek. "I was going to s;ty maybe we could i»o to the collage for a tew liiys. lint I can't for awhile. I've (jol some stnll on Ihe lire . . ." He itsscd her again. "Matter of fad, "m on my way over to In* lab low." • • • ,4 NN walked slowly into the bedroom. She went lo her de.>k, picked up her pen. "Dear Enos," she wrote. "Please do me a favor, darling, nnd settle a family argument? Will you test his ran of wax for fingerprints? You know Hush and 1 never hesi- atc to (alec advantage ol your oorl nature as well as your connection with the police department. We want you for a weekend some time soon. As always—" She signed her name with sure swift strokes. She sealed the envelope and laid it, unaddressed, on the blotter. Enos Barton was the Forrester attorney but he had also been Ann's beau until she met Rush. Enos was faithful and steadfast and always there when you needed him. lie might wonder why she wanted this can of wnx tested for fingerprints, but he'd see that It was done right away and not ask any questions. She va;- sure of it. She got a linen towel trom Ihe bathroom. She went to the closet, knelt down among the skirts ot her dresses and negligees. A stlfj taHetn skirl bristled as she ,>u.shed it aside so she could see the closet floor. Her shoes were in their racks. Her nightgown and dressing '<own hung on padded hangers. A red belt iC'ith brass studs hung crookedly from a hook. Everything was exarlly where It belonged. Everything. She looked a long lime and ihen she rubbed her eyes and looked again. The can of wax was gone. (To Be Continued) Porto Rico KILN DRIED SWEET POTATOES Delivered to Your Poor Phones .1677—2986 Buck Meharg Produce Ml E.
