Christie does not care for Aunt Nettie but tries to hide her feelings. As to the girls, she does not pretend to like them nor they her. The summer passes with Gene's letters growing further and further apart.

FREEDOM OF THOUGHT Thoughtful men and women would oppose any tendency in this country to create limitations upon the individual's right to thinl. and express his thoughts, regardless of the topic considered. Any effort to curb intellectual freedom in an attempt to perpetuate the present status is an obstacle to progress and freedom. Even in educational circles, sometimes, the course of inquiry and conclusion is restricted, usually to placate financial, economic or religious groups whose patrons the intellirre nce-dictalors would either have continue or begin. The future welfa.e of humanity is sacrificed for such current favors. In many countries of the world mental freedom is fast dlsao-pearing. Russia enthusiastically prefers communism, Italy and Germany similarly regard it treasonable to suspect the beneficence of the particular authoritarian rule in each nation, and in such countries thinking 'must be 'in mass proportions, organized and regimented as definitely and as i.revocibly as military maneuvers. No intellectual freedom or progress can be permanently expected in such nations. Tolerance of discussion, based upon sincerity of belief, is the foundation alike of both democratic government and the maintenance of human liberty. Without freedom for criticism of both doc trines and deeds, no error can be corrected, and jio improvement may be looked for when human beings have been totally subjected to mental control and censorship. A particularly disagreeable fact in every case where some dictatorship decrees beliefs and opinions for everybody is the savagery with which opposition is attacked and physically obliterated. Those who proclaim the unquestionable certainty and superiority of their own viewpoint fear to let it mix in free competition with other ideas and examples, a terror which entirely refutes the confidently ex pressed conviction of certainly. Liberals everywhere should oppose restrictions upon human thinking and experimenting, unless we prefer to route the human race back to the Middle Ages with controlled dogmas and interdictions upon further questioning by the intelligence of mankind. If so unhappy a state should arise the world will sleep again for a couple of centuries, during which brave and fearless thinkers will die as in ages past. ABOUT 11:80. ...

He affects the most violent shirts in Hollywood, a fact that subjects him to much kidding. This week, a tormenter asked: "Boris, why on earth do you wear those loud shirts?" The musician tired back: "I'm t bd.u x u tuuic, uiuu Yeal But when you didn't came, . . it. i Today's Puzzle: What masculine star simply can't remember about the secretary recently Installed in the outer office of his dressing room suite, with the result that he is apt to wander out in his b. v. d's, making both their their faces turn olentv red T 1 Denn u ihick MT L-.A nkl tt ! sn'f. that!

The waiter brought bread and butter, stood with pencil and pad to take their order. Gene said something, asked Christie something. She answered but she never could remember what she said, or what they ate. Gene's upper lip was beaded with little drops of moisture, he took his handkerchief out, and wiped his forehead. The waiter went away, closing the door carefully behind him. "Stuffy," Gene said. "Must be going to rain. I can't stand a hot room." Christie's large, stricken eyes had never left his face. "But you loved mel" she said, not realising how long it had been since he told her he was going to marry someone else. "Yes, I did. But it was like the art work. I knew nothing woulc ever coma of it. Your family wouldn't have stood for it, and why should they? I'm not like some fellows, after a rich girl. Besides, Ruby's a good kid, and she needs me. I'm not the kind to let a girl down." Not the kind to let a girl down. It was funny. She wondered if she could laugh, if she could ever laugh again. She wanted to speak, to say something, something crushing and cruel that would hurt him as he had hurt her. A lump rose in her throat. He was saying something. She didn't trust herself to speak, but she nodded her head, smiled a little. "Yes, youll forget me all right I knew that from the start. That's why I never really expected anything to come of it. You can thank ma for keeping my mouth shut. I saw how it would be. Pass the salt, will you, Christie? No the salt!
