The American people will probably understand the importance of recent gains in the Central Pacific by realizing that Japanese naval authorities, several years ago, called the line of the Bonins, the Marianas and Palau their "southern defense line". Behind it, the Japanese were confident of their ability to control the Northern Pacific and to avoid economic blockade. This defense line was broken in July when the Marianas were attacked and, after fighting of the hardest kind, the Palau position has been nullified. The isolated Bonins are inadequate without the other island groups. We should not overlook the tough nature of the fighting on Peleliu, where the Marines found that the Japanese had constructed intricate tunnels, sometimes five levels deep. They ran through hills with openings on either side, with steel doors, and were cunningly arranged to provide enfilading fire. Apparently, Japanese defenses were stronger than on Guam and (XM"MBIA Sunday and Monday , Wallace Beery and Marjorie Main are teamed for the fifth time in MOM'S "Hationing" the new film at the Columbia Theatre.

Isn't it an obligation for a man to marry any girl whose life he saves? I'm sure that's the romantic version." T: "She had a husband." .'. "Oh." He laughed as the wind spilled suddenly out of the sail. The next moment lt swept across the boat and would have swept the girl overboard if she hadn't been quick. The boat swung on a new track and they could ree the small figure in the wheel chair and someone beside it Anne decided something must be the matter and they must go in at once. He steered toward the spot obediently, but with m grin. "Tired of being out with me already?" "We've been out long time. You don't realize. See the sun." . "I can't see anything but 701, And it doesn't seem a long time to me. I'd like to turn about and salt the other way and keep on sailing," "You'd soon get hungry and come ashore. All romantic Ideas end in gettirj hungry." That sounds cynical, but I daft believe you really are. Suppose I told you I was a little bit crazy about you?" "Only a Uttle bit?" she mocked. "You have to be a lot more determined than that" "I know. You dont think I ever take anything very seriously." "Do you?" She chuckled. 1 think you just feel obliged to savj things when you're out in a boat with a girl." "Maybe. But of course, you? never b?en out in a boat with a guy before." . - That's right" She stretched bet arms wide in a playful gesture. "See how brave I am." 1 Quick as a flash he tipped the boat over. One second she waa laughing, and the next she was In the water rnd the scrappy-cat was on its side. As she came up the ii i brought her out to tell her. He sat with half closed eyes watching her. She said she knew nothing about boats, large or small, but she had show, no fear and quickly learned to do as he told her. At once she had learned to let her slim, lithe body be as a part of the boat itself and move with it. She laughed when, at his shout, she flattened herself to let the sail swing across as the boat tacked. Then the wind caught the sail in iU new position and the little boat leaped forward again. Her wavy hair was caressed by the soft breeze. He remembered the last time he'd been out in a boat with a girl. That had been in Santa Monica. "Tie girl had upset the boat and he'd had to get her in, with an oncoming storm blackening the sky and rolling up the waves in the swift, ruthless way of the Pacific. Anne leaned back instinctively to balance against a puff of wind. She felt strangely excited by this little adventure, with Mrs. Reynolds and her wheel chair in sight on the edg of ths Public Lot. She tossed her head and laughed at Dan, who had grown strangely silent- "Did I do something wrong?" she inquired. "No. It's funny, but you always do things right And you aren't a bit afraid that I can see." "Why should I be afraid? Aren't you here? And I do swim. Lots of people must be watching us and would dash to our rescue." He grinned. "Well, I agree about us being watched, anyway. Tou can't breathe in a place like this without somebody knowing ail about it." "Tou looked as if your thoughts were far away from here. I was watching you. I bet you were thinking about the last girl you took out sailing. Am I right?" His laugh was short "If you're going to start reading my mind I'd better be afraid." "Then it is true. Where was it? Tell me about it What was she like?" "Tou wouldn't be interested." "What gives you that idea? I'm interested in everything and everybody." "Even me?" She laughed. "Why not? You've wandered around and seen things. You think about them, too. I can see the far-away look come into your eyes, and then you forget anyone is within a thousand miles WM Candidate F. D.

"I nave far too much sense of duty to leave you unprotected,' she told her grandmother. "Good grief! Do you think anyone wants to kidnap me ? If so, tell em there's life in the old girl yet I've never been kidnaped and 1 have a hunch it might be fun." "Mother, I'm taking you back to the house." "No, you're not I know that trick. Tou want to spoil Anne's afternoon and have her come rushing in when she doesn't see me here. I'-n staving right here." "Mother. I shall speak to Russell and as': him what to do legally to bring you to your senses." The old eyes blazed. "You'd do better to try to get him to marry you before you turn into a mean old maid. Now will you let me alone?" The girl gasped. "This is too much!" -you said that before. Look. They're coming in now. They saw you here and they think something is wrong." "How can ou iet that conniving girl turn you against me? How CAN you? It's incredible." "I haven't changed my will. If that's what you're worrying about. But I will if you keep on pestering me I like Anne Wilson. She suits me. That is all." It was true that Anne had sacn someone standing by the whlel chair and told Dan that she thought it best to head in.
