He had made up his mind to dress Dan up and give him a new start cither here or in Weston, where an eye could be kept on him. Since Miss Withers knew nothing of Dan's rcturr it was very likely that no one else did. It was Impossible to tiiink of anything happening and escaping her notice. She had even seen old Mrs. Reynolds talking to a young girl who was along for?" He was annoyeJ without forgetting that he was being stupid about it. She turned to look at him. He thought her face was hard, and was angry with himself for the thought. It was only natural she should want to know what kind of nurse-companion her mother had picked out so unexpectedly. Laura spoke calmly. "Aren't you Interested In seeing?" she said. "After all, you'll hasn't any age at all. You should have been here, Laura." "I'm glad I wasn't. At the same time, mother does need someone around her who can restrain her from these childish outbursts. Naturally everyone laughed at her." "AT her? Goodness, I never said that. We were all happy WITH her, and this such a glorious day, and and all. Miss Wilson was interested at once, at sight" "I dare say." Eleanor pointed to her typewriter. "I've just included the story in my news items for the Weston paper. That and the party help out a lot. I'm so excited about it." Laura's eyes were steady. It would be better if you didn't Include Miss Wilson in your news items. She is not going to care for mother. I am getting a good nurse for her in Weston. Miss Slotta has very kindly consented" Eleanor gasped, "That cranky old woman?" She hadn't Intended It. The words slipped out. Laura's eyes 1 l TTo have to see a lot of her. And well, I rather felt I could count on your 3 help." He was contrite. "Of course I'll help if I can," he said, and fell into step again," The inn looked very quiet. Harry Bancroft was reading and Eleanor Bancroft was writing on her typewriter in earnest fashion. Laura used the brass knocker and Eleanor came to the door. 1 "Come in, come in," she cried. "Hello, Mr. Smith. I don't get to see you folks so often. Ycu both WHY WORRY ABOUT THE SOVIET? There are a large number of Americans who are worried about Russia and they are constantly stirred up by the articles of this, or that, author who is afraid of the Soviet Union's post-war role in world affairs. It is worth noting that Sir Bernard Pares, probably the Englishman who is best informed about the Soviet, has no Buch misgivings. He believes that Stalin, when the war ends, will turn back to "his lifework of building up a new Russia". The British author sees nothing excessive or unfair about the Soviet Union's proclaimed policy of seeking restoration of its 1941 borders. He warns the people of the United States not to expect the British to "throw away the friend whom Hitler has so stupidly given us" by courting a new world war in order to defend "Poland's very dubious title to her pre-war eastern provinces" or the "equally ques staying at the inn, so she had brought a present and arrived to get details. She had also seen Laura lose her tamper, and he was sorry for that. The Laura stamping her foot and banging out of the room hadn't been the usual Laura he knew. It gave him something to think about in his cautious way. So he was quiet as he and Laura left the house and turned down toward the Strand. They went into Jane Dorset's little Town Shoppe and Laura bought several things. Laura was always nice to Jane, perhaps because she respected the girl': efficiency. Laura talked of her circulating library, and when Laur?. talked of what she was doing she was enthusiastic, for she saw Jane was interested.

Russell hesitated a moment, then followed. Eleanor stood in the center of the room, looking dumbfounded as they walked out of sight Then she exploded: "Harry! It isn't right. Everybody knows that bwful old Dora Slotts!" He looked up at her and said dryly, "She said everyone knew." "Well, I think it's mean.

Tax Duplicates Rebecca In 'Ivanhoe It is an accepted fact that Sir Walter Scott modeled Rebecca in "Ivanhoe" after Rebecca Gratz, of Philadelphia, a Jewess who was noted for her beauty and intellect. An active and able worker in the caule of needy women and orphans, she founded the Philadelphia Hebrew Sunday school and directed It for 32 years. Scott never met Miss Gratz. She was the companion of Washington Irving's fiancee, Matild Hoffman, who died before their wed ding day, and Irving described r to him after Scott outlined the plan fur "Ivanhoe." "Texas Masquerade, " the fifty-first episode in the Hopalong Cas-sidy series starring Bill Boyd, blazes its way into the Columbia Theatre tonight thru I'nited Artists release. As usual. Bill plays the adventurous role of "Hoppy," who has a soft spot for anyone in distress and doesn't hesistate to risk his life in order to right a wrong. Sunday, ami Monday Columbia's "Cover Girl," the tionable cause of Baltic independence. It may well be that the Soviet Union will become a challenge to the economies of the earth but the threat, we suspect, lies in the possibility that the Communists will make their theories work for the better advantage of their people. DECENT BUT INANE. Because some 85,000,000 Americans visit the motion picture theatres every week it is important that the standard of the films presented be constantly improved. Prof. Fred Eastman, of the University of Chicago, says that the battle of decency, in the movies, has been won but a "picture may be decent and still be inane, stupid and worthless". There is, we believe, no answer to that. He suggests that the public must select its pictures with more care, patronizing the best and boycotting the rest. This is a good idea. In fact, the selective process could be stimulated by providing that those who operate moving picture theatres have greater freedom in rejecting proffered films. As it is, the average operator of a small motion picture theatre has little or no voice in the type of films exhibited. He must buy what the film companies manufacture and he muat charge the prices they set and show them the number of days they demand. SOLDIERS TO VOTE. Soldiers, sailors and Marines on distant battlefields are applying for ballots to be cast in the forthcoming presidential election. Secretaries of States report a heavy demand which seems to mean that many fighting men will participate in the voting. Naturally, it is very important that the handling of the ballots of soldiers be impartial and beyond suspicion. Accordingly, it is encouraging that James C. Wilkes, Republican National Committee observer I'ALACK Saturday Midnight, Sunday and Monday "The Adventures of Mark Twain."
