Miss Sarah White of East Without going into details of the new heating unit, said to be from eight to ten times as efficient as present furnaces, everybody is familiar with the waste of heat heretofore accepted as inevitable. The organization that developed the new model is not interested in manufacturing but has turned loose the new principle to all manufacturers on a "no-strings-attached" basis. The announcement predicts that manufacturers can produce an automatic unit, suitable for heating the average family-size home, that can be inclosed in a space less than two feet by two feet by three feet.

Packed into forma, this binder produces cores that are used to make castings for many metal parts of airplanes, tanks, guns, trucks, wheels and other imple-. mer.ts of war.

British airplanes recently flew to Warsaw to drop arms to Polish underground soldiers fighting the Nazis within the city. Some weeks ago, when Russian Armies approached Warsaw, the Poles, commanded by General Bor. took up arms and for more than two weeks have held part of the city. A man was walking up the bine- stone drive at this early hour. Matthew stopped and stared: A tall, disconsolate man, kicking the thought: HeU he on time at the hospital. The next time Dr. Matthew Norman saw Judith was a week later. He had had a very ill patient; he had not been able to leave town. When he saw Judith she was fully recovered, although complaining of headache. "What do yon expect," he inquired on the terrace of the salt- silly of her," said Ella, glaring with exasperation at a peche Melba, "but that's that. She wont have such a good chance again." Mary remarked mildly, "It isnt such a good chance, Ella, if she doesn't love him." 1 suppose not." Then it was winter again and Matthew had seen half the plays in town or at least the first act of each. Sam Morley had been ill and gravel as he walked. Matthew could just see the bonnet of a long car parked outside the gate. Of coarse, the polo playboy.

"Are you certain?" No one," snapped Matthew crossly, "should be certain of anything. But Dr. Morrows diagnosis of a slight concussion, one that will dear very shortly and leave no ill effects, is an opinion in which I concur." -Could I see her?- "I'm afraid not,1 Matthew began. "She must have rest, quiet and freedom from all excitement, for a few days. How7er,M he added, "visitors are entirely op to Dr. Morrow." Treadway said miserably, "?oa tee, it was all my fault.1 Matthew smote him on the shoulder. He didn't especialry wish to, but it is the mission of the doctor to ecTLscle. He said, "Don't worry. sure you wouldn't go to quite such Hilda frantic, Sam wouidn t have anyone but Matthew and kicked violently against the consultants. Bat he was all right again now. And Bill's wife, Barbara, was going to have a baby. It was winter again and Irene had been dead for a year. He went with his mother to the cemetery. Standing with her at his wife's grav, he asked suddenly, "Do you believe in God?" Mary looked at him in amaze ment. Then she replied steadily, "If I didnt, if I hadn't always believed, I couldn't have lived not after your father died . and since." Matthew said, "I suppose I do, too. I've seen ... miracles.

Matthew remarked maliciously, "I understand that you asked for ROUND-THE-CLOCK SCHOOLS. Vanport City, Oregon, described by residents as the world's largest shipbuilders" city, has a round-the-clock education system, summer and winter. Students go to classes on a two-shift basis, part in the mornnig and the rest in the afternoon. Toddlers are in the nursery school for night care and grammar school children, whose sleep is disturbed by the working hours of their parents, enroll in me." He was rewarded by the faintest color rising in her cheeks as she said, I don't remember. But then I was out of my head." As usual, grinned Matthew, and set down his glass. isne said, looking awav, "Thanks, my good doctor, and now it's time special classes. j The experiment is interesting but the! 1 went. I nave a date.
