He had held her close and kissed her throat and begged her to keep on wandering with him. Tonight while dancing they had both laughed about It. She had told him the holiday was over and now they had to work. He had kissed her and then Russell had come in. There had been consternation In Russell's eyes. She smiled. She wondered If Dan would tell Russell, but somehow she felt he wouldn't. They had decided nobody was to know, when she made up her mind to come back. He had said he'd follow in a day or two, but she had had no belief in his appearing. It wasr't that she didn't ant to see him again, but merely that she did.t't expect to see him. He knew it. They had both needed each other that day in Washington. She liked to feel it was not all one-sided. She had told Dan so tonight. The moon went behind a cloud and a faint chill seemed to come into the room. She got up and opened her door. The house was very quiet. For a moment she hesitated, then she went downstairs and out into the street The lock was on the door, but she didn't intend going far, Morris street was very quiet. The moon was bright in the sky again and the big trees cast shadows on the rough brick sidewalks. Most of the houses were dark. The fixed wooden awning at Jane Dorset's Town Shoppe cast a heavy shadow. A dog lying there got up and brushed against her, thrusting his cold wet nose against her hand. She wasn't frightened. She felt him as a kindred spirit as he walked alongside her. Every moment he would look up at her as if asking where everyone was and why they weren't out walking when it was so beautiful outside under the moon. - . . . A fat man came along, singing softly, "Ah, moon of my delight." He smiled as he came up to her and stopped. "Isn't it a glorious night? I felt I couldn't sleep." The dog pawed him happily and he patted the silky head. He went on, "I'm sure yo'i must be Anne Wilson. I just go here tonight. Eleanor Bancroft told me about you." Anne was polite but Indifferent. All fat men, tall or short, were clumsy to her. He seemed to block the road. She agreed it was a beautiful night but was glad when he went off humming his song again. tion, went along with him. She decided the man must be the writer who came to the inn. His choice of song Indicated he was a sentimentalist. She was quite sure she didn't want to read any of his books. The end of Morris street ran down to a wharf where small yachts tied up to refuel and children swam during the day. It was deserted now, or rather, she thought it was until she was actually there. Then she saw a tall figure leaning against a clump of piles. He came toward her and spoke softly. , "I thought It was you. I was hoping it would be." She was not surprised. As with the dog outside the Town Shoppe, it was almost as if she had expect-ed Russell to be there. She spoke very calmly. "Mrs. Reynolds was all right. It was nothing much. She's asleep now." Russell drew a deep breath. "I'm glad you came. I want to talk to you." She turned her face to look up at the moon. She could almost feel the silver glow on her cheeks, as one feels sunshine. The idea made her smile. She was glad, too, that she had yielded to an impulse and come out for a few minutes. She hadn't wanted to talk to the fat man who sang sentimental songs, though she was sure he had wanted conversation. She had been in no mood. But this was different Russell Smith had leanness and dignity as Dwight Raynor .had. She could look at him and feel glad Dwight had been swept out of her life. She felt very cool, very sure of herself. ,, "You might offer me a clgaret before you start scolding," she said lighUy. . . "I'm not going to scold. But I must talk to you." He was very serious. His voice had rich mellow quality. As he gave her a cigarct and held a match she imagined him in court She had always liked to imagine people doing their work. He fitted well into the picture, as he was interesting to talk to ibout books and general topics. She could picture him as she had Dwight Raynor in the operating room. Only there she had known him and worked with him. . Only Dan couldn't be pictured doing anything in particular. Except sailing the boat and dumping her. (To Be Continued) CHAPTER TWENTY-FOUR ANNE WAS glad It was the Imperturbable surgeon who had been flustered when they met in Washington. Dr. Baynor, and not she. He had begged to talk to her. She had pricked the bubble of his complaisant conceit She had ahown him that his importance, his telephone messages, his telegrams, his conferences, meant nothing to her now. She could see he couldn't grasp how she was marrying Dan Dun In his ill-fitting suit, hia outdoor look and long dark hair. Dan who looked in that place as If he had worked two weeks for a man who'd given him an old suit. She wunled Dwight Raynor to see all of it and how completely r'.ie had forgotten him and his world of success. And once she felt he had seen and she had walked out of the hotel with Dan, the rest hadn't mattered. She had felt drained of strength and purpose as the taxi crossed the long bridge over the Potomac to Alexandria. If Dan really wanted to marry her, it was all right. At least he hadn't let her down during those precious minutes with Dr. Raynor. He had stood by her as she got back her self-respect. Her love for Dwight had been the biggest thing in her life. It had dominated her even before he told her he loved her. He had destroyed that love when he thrust her aside to marry money. It hurt more because money was so easy for him to earn. She had tried to run away from his memory, but it had always been at the back of her mind like a cloud shutting away the sun. As sha rode across the long bridge over the Potomac she felt glad of Dan Smith who held her hand. She would marry Dan and be happy with him for a few days and get Dwight Raynor out of her mind forever. She needed someone to love her, to hold her tight, to say he was crazy about her. Dan would wander off, of course, but that didn't matter. She would only need a few days to be sure of herself again, to be sure the love for Dwight was deader than dead. Those had been her thoughts going to Alexandria to get married. Now, aitting at her window, she could smile up at the moon. Dan had done his part. He -iad made her laugh while he made her forget. For a few days they had been happy. They had wandered off to the The Women's Army Corps is a component part of the Army of the United States. Its personnel enjoy all the rights and privileges of soldiers, including free mailing privileges, dependency allotments, Government insurance rates, overseas pay increases and all of the benefits provided for veterans when the war ends. The women who volunteer for service with the Army have the same grades and receive the same pay of men in the Army. Generally, they are employed in administrative and technical work and, in 1943, filled 239 specified jobs in the Army. The authorized strength of the Corps is 200,-000 but less than half this number has volunteered despite the vigorous efforts of recruiting officers. .fi,et J . 2y I ; i Taking a Backward Glance Washed Fastest Wool fabrics wash the fastest of all and can be harmed by too long washing.

In addition to all the advantages mentioned above, qualified women will be given technical training courses to fit them for their work in Army hospitals and, what is just as important, for good jobs when the war emergency ends and they go back to private life.

Naturally, we cannot assert that any particular woman has the duty of serving her country and her wounded fighting men. This is a question that individuals, between the ages of twenty to forty-nine years, must decide for themselves. Certainly, however, we can agree that in a country as large as the United States, it is a reflection upon the patriotism of women generally that less than 100,000 American women have volunteered for service under such favorable conditions. ENORMOUS CONSUMER DEMAND. An idea of the possible demand for consumer goods, when the war is over, is given by an estimate made by the OPA. The agency," basing its estimate on 1941 output, says that civilian production, choked off by the war, equals 10,980,000 automobiles, 10,500,000 refrigerators, 6,-042,000 washing machines, 6,351,000 vacuum cleaners, 16,755,000 electric irons, 7,923,000 toasters, 41,100,000 radios, 82,-380,000 clocks and watches, 10,400,000 furnaces and heaters and 14,010,000 stoves and ranges. If this estimate is anything like the probable demand for these products, it is easy to understand what will happen when limited production begins. Civilians, anxious to obtain the articles, will create a demand far above available supply. Unless properly controlled by price levels, this demand will inevitably lead to considerable advances in prices as buyers attempt to out-bid each other for items. The inevitable consequence of higher prices will be diminished buying. This will certainly check production, cause unem WABASH Wednesday and Thursday Dances from jive to siniior: Spanish art are featured i;i "Minstrel Man." starring Uiin Fields and Clad) a George, lloy gi illicit Haw aiian pineapple, choice ripe red ln-rrii, frcsli-Mpicczcd juices of plump oranges and lemons . . . extra-good fruit anil plenty of it.
