"Matthew, don't be utterly stupid. , If Lynn and your mother are in love 1 with each other, if they decide as I hope they will to marry, it is certainly not your affair." He said, half amused, half angry, "Judy, you're the most incurably romantic woman!" "Matthew." "What?" "Let's talk about something else. Christmas, for choice. I thought we had planned to spend the day, and Christmas Eve if you could manage it, at Little Place by ourselves, except for your mother." "I know, but I think an eggnog party would be amusing. We could take Olga and Nils up." He stopped the car in front of their apartment, and let her out. "I'll leave the car out," he said, "in case I'm called." The chauffeur had the day off, rather to Matthew's annoyance. Judith waited for him in the lobby while he found a parking space and they went upstairs together. When she had taken off her things she rnme into the living room to find thew." He pulled her toward him so suddenly that she almost lost her balance. He was, she noticed, laughing a little, as he kissed her. When he released her, Judith was very pale, under the rouge. He said, "You can't get away from me, darling, not ever." "I can try," she said, her breathing quickened and her eyes enormous, fixed upon him. "That's why I want to go, Matthew." He asked, "Are you trying to say that you no longer love me?" "No, it wouldn't be true. I do love you," Judith said, "but not enough to remain your wife." Matthew said swiftly, "You're ill, darling; let me put you to bed. As a doctor " "You can spare me the clinical details. 1 know. I don't discount the attraction between us. It is as nearly perfect as anything can be. But it isn't everything, Matthew. PUNISHMENT REQUIRED. That's why I want to leave you, for a while to think things through, away from you, and to make up my mind whether or not I can return to you." Matthew said, after a moment, "If you leave me, Judy, you needn't come back." Bhe said, "All right, Matthew," and, turning, left the room. An hour or so later Judith heard him smoking, by the radio, and dance music playing. She asked, "Would you turn that off a moment, Matthew, 1 want to talk to you." He clicked the dial and said contritely, "I forgot your headache. Wait a moment, I'll get something for it." "Never mind. It's better. "Good! Come here and ait beside me, darling." "No, if you don't mind." "I do mind. What's come over tout" the telephone ring, and a little after She said, "Perhaps any or all or those would be easier to combat than your complete lack of understanding of marriage, the sharing, the give-and-take. There's been no compromise in our marriage, Matthew. Every time we have differed I have been the one to give in." He demurred with, "A man's the head of his house." "No, a man and woman together . . . their house, Matthew, tfctirt." "We never quarrel." "Not in that sense," she agreed; "you never let it come to that. Yon take me in your arms and kiss me." He asked, "What have we differes about?" "A thousand things . . . our way of living, my mother, yours, my friends " her voice was very quiet "children." He leaned down and gathered her close, declaring, "You belong to me." "I don't want to," she whispered. "Please, let me go now." For the first time, her deliberate resistance, her complete lack of response, was a barrier he could not break. He released her and stood up, saying slowly, "If that's the way you want it . . ." "It's not the wsy I want it," she said, "it's the way it has to be." At the door, he turned, then said, "Judy, I still don't believe this. I don't believe that you would delitt-erately wreck our marriage for a a whim. Perhaps by tomorrow youH talk reasonably. I'll notify service that I'll be at the club this evening." When the door closed Judith felt that be had left her before she left him. She was too tired to cry. If she went away and never saw him again . . . Three days later Judith started for the Coast. Before she left she went to see Mary and she said, "I'll stay out there until after Christmas, perhaps longer. If 1 return to Matthew it won't be a -question of terms, either his or mine. It will be because somehow 1 will know that he needs me ... in the way I want to be needed." Mary told her, "Thanksgiving night Matthew called me from the club and said that he was coming to see me. Ten minutes later he phoned again and said he couldn't make H." Judith said, slowly, "It was his instinct to turn to you, of course. But he couldn't bear to, Mary." "Why?" "He couldn't admit failure tc you." "No," agreed Matthew's mother, "he couldn't, 1 suppose. Not ever when he was little."

She thought, If he comes back and takes me in his arms . . When Matthew did return it was a little while before he came into the bedroom. He did so finally, sitting down on the bed, beside her. It was dark in the room. He said, "You don't mean it, Judy, do you?" "Yes," she answered, "I mean H."

"Your mother! But you can't," he said; "that's absurd. Yon belong here, with me." He shook his head angrily. "Matthew" Judith stood by the mantel and looked at him as he sat in the big chair, his pipe in his hand, his long legs outstretched "listen to me: I am going west I thought about it last night and made up my mind today, at your mother's. I don't know how long I'll stay." The quick blood rose to his forehead and receded. "Are you trying to say that you propose to leave me?" "That's what I want to decide." He got to his feet, went over to the fireplace, and took her unresisting hands in his. "Because I suggested a Christmas party at Little Place? Well, it's off, if that's the way you feel about it." "That doesn't help matters." she j aid gently.

Featured players in a great cast are Preston Foster, Lloyd Nolan, William Bendix. Richard Coute and Anthony Quinn. "But why " he was no longer It is inadvisable, during me cuuidc u. -war, to believe everything that is alleged by belligerents. During the last war, there were many stories of atrocities and some of them did not stand up when the truth became known after the Armistice. For this reason, we have not devoted much space to the repetition of charges against the Germans and the Japanese, although both have been quilty of brutal atrocities. The facts will come out in due course of time and, even now, the Russian-Polish Atrocities Commission is gathering details as to the operations of the Nazis in Russia and Poland. The Germans seem to have had in operation at Majdanek a system of execution that almost staggers the imagination. Correspondents have visited the place, with six concrete vaults for execution by gas and an open-air crematorium, to handle 1,900 corpse a day. Until their visit, the newspaper men could not imagine the proportion of frightfulness involved. Several German officers have told their story to the nivestigators. On November 3rd, 1943, according to one of the Germans, 18,400 prisoners received "special treatment," which reduced the number of inmates by that number. While the prison held about 30,000 prisoners, investigators estimate that its turnover in three years probably exceeded 600.000. The Germans who told the story allege that their orders came from above. This seems to put the responsibility for these, and similar, atrocities upon the Nazi High Command and it is hard to disbelieve that the brutality of the Germans was not deliberately designed to kill off enemy peoples. The preponderance of the evidence thus far submitted seems to establish it. Certainly if the full truth substantiates the horrible stories of suffering and death, the civilized people of the world can do little less than demand the punishment of those who perpetrated the crimes.

Apparently, the enemy is making a desperate effort to increase the production of the tools of warfare. While the course of- the conflict in the Pacific is not as apparent as in Europe, the facts of the military situation carry little comfort for the war lords of Tokyo. They have observed the U. S. fleet projecting bases across the Pacific and, despite - our secrecy, they probably have a pretty .good idea as to the size of the American fleet. CHECK AND DOUBLE CHECK. In Brussels a check for a hotel dinner comes to $5 for those Americans who have moved in with the allied armies, meaning mostly newspapermen. In Paris perfume that should cost SI brings S10. The allies have fixed the rate of exchange at 50 French francs to SI. Valued at normal purchasing power, the dollar would equal 250 French francs. So Americans over there are poor. Before the war, during all the money troubles on the continent, the dollar stood very, very favorably on the counters and Americans lived well. Charles A. Lindbergh has had many confused ideas about this war, but in long ago 27 he did better. If you're planning on going to Paris, do as he did take your own sandwiches. Indianapolis Star. Washington J.
