The search for truth is usually worshipped in a very abstract 'lanner by individuals who, when they come lo a clash between the icts and their prejudices, are extremely reluctant to substitute th rmer for the latter. . A study of history, recording the experiences of past Renera-fns, is valuable to a student only when the past is examined ob-crively and the true facts presented. Yet, it is notorious that his ry books have been written from various angles to support national, religious and social views. Hendrik Willem van Loon, noted historian and author, urges that teachers adopt a method of approach like lhat of the physician trying to make a correct diagnosis. The doctor, he says, does not take sides but observes all phenomena. l ie has nothing personal against the ailment but seeks to correct the wrong which exists in the physical body. '. Mr. van Loon says, "Every nation in Europe has taught its national history from its own particular little angle," that Catholics inanee. The comedy has to do Willi "Peaeelill Kcla I ions."

Indolent by nature, and already well along in years, he never assumed the . position that his wealth might have given him. Instead, he built a home in tht California Mother Lode country, near little town called Spanish Pass. Whils he dreams of the great things he will do for Christie by and by, she grows up with the boys and girls of the mountain community, an innocent and adventurous young tomboy. Left slone in the Isolated ranch house for a few days, she is visited by a childhood chum and sweetheart. Gene Dubois. CHAPTER II He sat on the veranda railing, dangling his feet, while she went into the cooly shaded house. It was comfortable here, on the Cooper place. If you could live in a place iilte this, with ice, and electric lights and plumbing and everything, living in the sticks wouldn't be so bad. She came back with two clinking, frosted glasses. "Orange juice. I found a whole pitcher of it in the ice box. That was all the chocolate cake, but there are lots of these cookies. . . . Gene, are you going to stay home for good?" "I don't know. Guess so. Oh, I don't care. My Uncle Paul got the chance to do Mrs. Jennings' assessment work she's got a claim over by Whiskey Slide so he's leaving Monday, and I had to come back. Oh, I don't care. I might as well be working in a dairy in Spanish Pass, as a gas station in Sacramento. It isn't as if I could do as I want, anyway " She nodded, a little embarrassed. She knew what he meant She knew more than he intended she should know. About him. About his troubles. She knew, what he hoped she didn't know, about his folks. About big Pete Dubois, who always a little tipsy, and usually good natured, could fly into sudden frightful tempers, and beat up his entire family with the old rawhide whip that hung in the shed, a step from the Dubois back door. She knew why mournful little Madame Dubois, with her grey head swathed in a woolen shawl, would not venture beyond the turkey run for days at a time. Why Adrienne, Gene's little sister, stayed out of school sometimes, and what had caused the thin white scar that sometimes showed so plainly on Gene's olive cheek. And she knew, what he didnjt mind her knowing about his ambition to be an artist. He had sketched her, for years. He had sketched every tree for miles. He had sketched the ruined mine shafts, the old prospectors, the tumbledown adobes on the fringe of the town. But that was a secret too, for old Pete Dubois wouldn't stand for such "nonsense." . . . She lowered her eyes. While she had been thinking about Gene he had been looking at her. "What are you looking at me funny, for?" "You look nice in a dress, he said, flushing a little. "Oh, I wear them all the time now, except when I'm riding. Aunt Nettie had fits over the kind of clothes I used to wear. Anyway, this sort of thing is cool " She patted a sheer white ruffle, swung a slim, stockinglesB leg that ended in a white, strapped sandal. "You look nice In them," he said gain.
