' -Yon you can't mean It" ' "I do mean it Anne darling. Let me call you that I've tried to blind myself, but I can't any more. I love you. it lifts a weight off my heart Just to be able to say It I'm net trying to sweep you off your feet I have no right to catch you In my arms as I want to. But I mvit tell you."

I " She put her hand over his mouth. "Russell!" "Let me kiss you. Let me touch your lips." His mouth pressed against hers and for a moment she was helpless in his arms. Then he released her. His voice was husky with amotion. "Can't you say jiything at all? Don't '-ou even like me ?" She' laid a hand on his arm. "Moonlight is dangerous. There is nothing for me to say. Tomorrow ..." "Tomorrow TCI only love you more." She laughed tightly. "Yov. may be sorry you were foolish. Now I must get in. Mrs. Reynolds may want me." "And what about mc?

I tried to go to bef but I couldn't sleep." "As bod as that? I'm sorry. Weie you thinking of nn!" "Yes. Anne." Something in his voice made her stop smiling. She looked up at him quick). "It 'sn't as serious as all that" "It really is. I don't want you to get fond of Dan. I know how delightful he can be. He has been around a great deal. He can say pretty things to a girl that don't have any meaning at aiL He won't mean any harm, but he is that way. To him nothing is serious, nothing sacred. He thinks nothing can hurt him, and perhaps nothing can. Some people are like that He can have fun telling yon 'e loves you, and then pick up his hat and run away." "Run away." She repeated his last words softly. "We all run away. At least we try to. And sometimes W3 succeed. Why don't you confess you're really shocked because we were dancing In your house and all the gossips will think you were there and getting very frivolous." "Gossip is serirus in a small town, Anne." "Not for me. I'll pick up my hat and run away. What str is have I to tie me here if nobody vants me around? I'm as free as as Dan." "Not quite. No one in the world is really free anyway.

"1 gave it up for Talbot as I f ave up other things. Tonighi is the Brat time 1 danced. 1 used to love to dance. Now you can lecture me on both my bad habits at once." She sat down on a pile that was just tall enough. Russell seemed very tall as he stood tn front of her. She could see past him to a house on "the Island" that was all lighted up. The 'oft breeze ouched her hair as she laughed, saying: "Don't you know just how to begin?" "No. I don't." "But you were shocked when you saw I was kissed by Dan. weren't 3 ou?" He took her iand. "Anne, I'm serious." "So am I." She drew away and made a gesture with her cigaret. "If I feel like kissing your brother there is no reason why I shouldn't. I'm quite fond of him. And he can be very charming when he wants to be. He was tonight Also I must be going back, as I 'eft 'he front door unlocked. The fat -nan I Just met on the street might be a burglar." She stood up and snapped her cigaret away. It didn't taste good. She had gotten out of the habit of smoking. It belonged to another period of her life. Smoking went with Dwight. Dwight was dead and burled as far as she was concerned. He had been like the arc of flame the cigaret drew palely In the moonlight before it hissed out in the water. On the bottom it might be rubbled by a crab vho would find it inedible. Russell took her arm and they began to walk off the pier. She had never known him to be so silent and uncertain of himself. She rather liked that, as she bad enjoyed MOSCOW TALKS IMPORTANT. The visit of Prime Minister Winston Churchill to Moscow, where he conferred with Marshal Josef Stalin is a matter of extreme importance to the future of the people of the world. Apparently, the two leaders met in an atmosphere of extraordinary cordiality and were able to reach satisfactory agreement upon most of the questions that occupied their attention. The fact, that the United States was not represented by its President is not a matter of concern. This government was fully informed and consulted on all matters and you. She took his arm. "You can walk I'll dri"f him away." You don't see. Anne. I haven'rlhome with me. Let's not say any more tonight It would be too easy told you before because I wasn't sure myself. But I am now.

The future peace of the world depends very largely upon the ability of Great Britain and Russia to get along together in Europe. Without a genuine friendship, the Continent would soon be divided into two groups, one adhering to Great Britain and the other depending upon the Soviet. This condition would inevitably lead to another war as the difficult questions of peace-time years are faced without the hearty cooperation of the war-time effort. THE NAZIS ARE ASKING FOR IT!

Consequently, there are grave implications in the exhortation of Reich Propaganda Minister Joseph Goebbels to the German people to present the Allies with a "fanatical population' 'and to harry for- j ces of occupation by guerrilla-type warfare. If the majority of the German people carry out the suggestion of Goebbels, they will probably succeed in killing additional Allied soldiers. This would be unfortunate in view of the useless nature of these casualties, but the more serious implications involved in such a fanatical course are of stern consequence to the German people themselves. - When the German armies have been broken up and rendered helpless as military forces, the Allied armies of occupation will necessarily apply rigorous and severe regulations to the German population. If thereafter the German people resort to a gangster-type of assassination, the Allied High Command will have no MISS TONES, SEVEN TILLIE the TOILER HER W TO S MICE THIM6S MISS LURELYo BITTfcK MILITARY CAMPS.

We would not like to see such things happen, even in Germany, but if they must occur, let us remember that the Germans asked for it. CANADIANS SPARE CIVILIANS. Some 15,000 civilians of Dunkerque were given an opportunity to leave the port before the Canadians began their assault. By arrangement, a truce permitted the civilians to get out of the besieged city and it was extended to give the Germans time to blow up bridges and to re-lay mines after the civilians had passed over the road out of the town. This is an interesting sidelight, reflecting credit upon the Canadian leaders. Obviously, the presence of civilians in Dunkerque would handicap the German garrison. Whatever the incident reveals as to Canadian solicitude for civilians, it does not indicate a sudden German conversion. We know of no particular occasion upon which the Germans have shown consideration for the welfare of civilians. customary activity in the observance of Halloween.
