"Are you trying to avoid talking about our marriage?'' "No, Laura. It has to be settled." "Good. Then how soon ran it be? I don't want any preparations or p3 franco ii announcements. We can defer our chair, holding Jie sheet of paper honeymoon if you're busy right now. We" He shook his head, stopping her. "I'm sorry, Laura, but that isn't iin her lone fingers.

"What do yju expect me to do after you've jilted me?" "I haven't. Laura, you .n be as wise when you want to. You can ba big enough to face what I can't help any more than you can. You wouldn't want to marry '-is knowing 1 love someone else. It wouldn't make you happy. You're too clever to ask me. I'll do all I can. You must break off, of course, and let it be known you're not interested in me any more," "And have that sneak gloat over me?" "Anne doesn't gloat. If you want to know, she refused me. Said any duty was to you and " Laura's laugh was hysterical. "That's enough." She yanked open the door to the outer office, where Miss Tiller sat supposedly immersed in shorthand notes. A moment more and she was running down the stairs to the street. Once there, however, she pulled herself togethe. and ma.i .ged to walk quietiy to the spot where she kept her car. Passing her library, sha saw two people waiting for her and she .nanaged to smile as she toht them she was closing up for th day, as her mother wasn't leelluf; well and needed her. te was tha work of a minute to change tha sign on the door to "Closed for tha day." She was icily calm as she got into her car and started for Talbot. The house was empty. Molly, the cook, told her her mother was out but would be home soon to lunoi. Laura spoke carefully. "Molly, o to Miss Wilson's room and pack her things and put them on the porch. I want you to do it at once. Never mind about lunch. Don't stand there and stare at me. Do as I teU you." "But I can't. Miss Laura," cried the astonished colored woman. Laura smiled. -"Then you are discharged. Just take off your apron and go. We have no use for you here any more, Molly, when yon can't obey orders." "But please, Miss Laura The giri walked out coldly and went to the phone, where she called ' Miss Withers, Her voice was sweet! and she said she was so excited sha had to call up and say she and Russell were getting married at the end of the week. Very quietly mar ried, so it was to be a secret Miss. Withers would understand, of! course. 15he listened as 4iss Wltb- ers assured her she understood per j fectly. Then sbe hung up and went up to Anne's room. Laura could be swift when occasion demon 'edr and in a few minutes Anne's bag stood on the front porch and the room contained no sign of her occupancy. Then she sat down in lb living room to wait (To Be Continued) r r, I haven't been fair to you. But it when Russell came into ne room He almost plunged in.

How coulft ' II American families whose friends or husbands are prisoners of war are warned not to accept enemy broadcasts of prisoner messages as authentic and not to be victimized by unscrupulous persons who attempt to sell information about prisoners f war. . - , u Captain Wilbur Lincoln, Chief of the Record of Identification Division of the Office of the Provost Marshal-General, says that information about prisoners is received from the International Red Cross, but that Government monitors listen to and record every enemy broadcast concerning prisoners. This information is checked against the files in the office and the contents of the message forwarded immediately to the prisoners' kin. The Captain explains that the Division has other methods of finding missing men. Letters from prisoners are scanned by the Office of Censorship for references to other men and each name mentioned in a letter is checked against official lists. If the name is not found on the list of prisoners, the International Red Cross sends a representative to the prison camp to verify the information, which is sent to his family. Capatin Lincoln also revealed that maps are kept showing the location of war he say it? They had been engaged for five years. She stood limply waiting for him to finish. Russell hung up and faced her. "Believe me, I am very sorry. Laura. But we've both got to face what can't be helped. For a long time I haven't been sure of myself. At the Movies Last night I knew once and for and. putting both arms aooui mm, kissed his lips lightly. "Don't look so surprised. I Just t'ropped In." He swallowed a lump in his throat "Miss Tiller says you've been here an hour." She laughed. "Suppose 1 have. It's been nice waiting for you here. I don't think I ever had a chance to sit in your office before. I like it. It's a good place for thinking. And you know you might at least thank me for waiting so long.' He drew a deep breath. "I'm glad you came. I want to talk to you." She sank back into the big chair and smiled up at him. "1 know. You tried to write me a letter about it. Since it said, TJear Laura,' I actually dared to take it up and read it. Po you mind terribly?" "No." He sat in his desk chair. "It is really much better this way." "Of course it is." She made a gesture of sweeping inconscquen-tiais away.

You must be mad! You don't realize what you say!" He took both her hands. "Laura, you must be sensible." She yanked away and her eyes were blazing now. "Anne. You love Ann:' You don't even know who she is. You don't know what she is." "I only know I asked her to marry!" "The dirty sneak! I knew it The little liar! Cheat!" He caught her arm. "Laura.

Sleeping North or South Many people believe, as Charles Dickens and others did, that electrical forces from the magnetic poles make sleep belter if the bed is placed north and south, with the head al tlie north. Evan, to this day some people carry compasses when traveling and each night move the bed around so the magnetism will pass from their head to feet, and not crosswise of their bodies. This is a bit of superstitious pseudo-science.

The explanation for the rapid success of the British "invasion" of Greece is to be found in the sweep of the Russian armies toward Belgrade, and, to a considerable extent, the work of guerrillas attacking German communication lines and escape routes in Yugoslavia. In fact, British operations are probably more of a political than a military nature. For many years, the traditional British policy in the Mediterranean has been to maintain Greece and some areas along the Adriatic as a "sphere of influence".

Moscow s preoccupation with developments in the Balkans has led some observers to believe that the purpose of Russian operations is also influenced by political considerations. Thus, Great Britain and Russia meet face to face in the embattled cockpit of Europe.
