"' helpless than he had been then. He must have dozed off, but he woke at the sound of Russell coming up the stairs. He Jumped up, crying, "Rus, I want to talk to you." Russell went past to put his coat in his room. Dan followed and leaned against the open door, "Where did you and Anne run off to?" Russell pulled off his tie without turning. "I took Miss Wilson home." Dan laughed. "You must have gone by way of Baltimore, Philadelphia and points north. Anne didn't even say goodby." "There was no reason for doing so." "That's funny. I had an Idea guests usually said goodby and sometimes even thanked you. Maybe that's all out of style now." Russell turned and his eyes were angry. "It's not a Joking matter. You don't seem to realize what you have done." "But I do." Dan looked down at his bare feet. "How much did she tell you?" "How much about what?" "That's what I want to know." "J don't need to be told what I saw. The whole street could look in and see. You had beer bottles on the table, too, like a a barroom." Dan burst out laughing. "You sound like a preacher. One night I'm wrong because I pull down the shades, and the next because I don't. Anne and I weren't doing anything the whole world couldn't watch." He stopped smiling. "Anyway, in the last analysis, it's nobody's business what Anne and I do." "It's mine!" Dan felt his brain snap. "I said nobody and that means you, too. If I want to bring Anne in to spend the night with me, that's my affair. I kind of Uiink I will . . ." "Take that back!" Russell caught him by the shoulder roughly. "You dare say " Dan's eyes flashed. "I dare say anything I want. Let go of me. You're so proper about shades being up or down. What about you mushing with Anne down on the town wharf? Don't look at me so high and mighty. I'm doing the f lie, WB? 4 " ' i r : . r. : 1 another word or you'll be sorry." "As far as Anne goes I'U say plenty," Dan shouted. "You tay away from her." "Go to your room! IU settle with you in the morning!" "Like heck you will." Dan faced him truculently. "We'll settle things right now. Anne's mine. I can hug her, kiss her, any tiling I want. Z " Russell's fist shot out and caught Dan on the point of the jaw. For an Instant he wobbled, then tell back through the open door and out Into the hall, where he lay in a heap. Only his bare feet stuck into the room. Russell thrust them aside with his shoe and stood over him glowering. "Get up, you little skunk, and take that back!" There was no sign from the crumpled figure. There was no sound but a dog barking somewhere far off. SSiowly Russell's hands unclenched and. he knelt down and pressed his head against Dan's chest. For an instant it seemed he was dead, then he caught the reassuring heart throb. His knees shook a little as he picked up the unconscious figure and put him on his bed. Then he stood looking down on him. Dan had never seemed so slim, so helpless. A wave of emotion swept over him. It was Dan he had struck down as one strikes down an animal. It was Dan he had wanted to beat and batter. It was such a few days since his heart leaped up at sight of Dan standing in the doorway looking at him. . He choked down the lump In his throat and went out, closing the door softly. Once back in his own room he put on his tie and coat again. It took some time, because his fingers were trembling. Then he went downstairs and out to his car. Looking back at the house, he saw he'd left his own light burning as well as Dan's, but he didn't go back. He couldn't. He couldn't face Dan again until he'd thought things through. Tomorrow or next day they would be able to talk quietly and arrange something. If Dan loved Anne He didn't let his thoughts run on. He drove hard along the road out of town. He felt sick at heart. He must think of something. .(To He Continued) CHAPTER THIKTY-ONB DAN WAS actually grinning in hia most devil-may-care way when he went to the porch, but Hie grin faded. Anne and Russell were not there. The porch had a more than empty look. Going Into the living room, lie paw Anne'a purse was gone. After a monient'a hesitation he picked up the telephone and called the Inn. No, Miss Wilson was not there. It occurred j lilm lie wasn't angry, but he waa hurt. Russell had done nothing more than map at him. Anne, after spending several hours anj eating with him, had gone off without so much as a word. It was only a short stroll to Johnson's store, where people were eating ice cream on a warm night like this, but Russell and Anne, were not there. He drank a soda he didn't want and wandered down the street past Mrs. Reynolds' house. The living room was lighted and he could see Mrs. Reynolds and Laura anil several other people. It was almost like a party. Farther along, Jane Dorset's Town Shoppe was still open and he looked in. Jane greeted him cheerily. "It's quite a surprise to see you," she said. "Your brother was in a while ago with Miss Wilson." He made a Joke and bought some razor blades. He wandered on to the corner of the Strand. Two shadowy figures were visible on the town wharf. He knew instinctively they were Russell and Anne, and he turned back. For the first time it seemed a long way from the Strand to his front porch, where he sank into a chair. All at once he felt tired, drained of strength.' He knew he would have to talk to Russell when he came home. After a while on the porch he went inside and -p to his room, where he undressed and lay on top of his bed in pajamas. The door was open and Russell would have to pass to get to his own room. He fixed the light so it wouldn't shine in his eyes. He wanted to think clearly, but he couldn't think at all. It was crazy, but all he could do was remember where he had been in jail in California, arrested on a charge of vagrancy. He had lain on a rough bed night after night trying to think, and with absolutely no success. All he knew cow was that in a way he was more I U-iiiS FOB JAPAN. The day will come in the Pacific War when B-293 are as numerous over Japan as B-17 Flying Fortresses are over Germany, declares General Henry II. Arnold, Commanding General of the Army Air Force. The Gener-' says that a tremendous super-bomber program is being developed and that the new plane is complicated to handle, so that Fortress pilots with 2,000 hours in the air are given five to six weeks of intensive training before being permitted to fly the Superfortress. The B-20 is well able to take care of itself in the air, being equipped with a new fire-control system, involving the principle of remote control.

The fact that the leaders of the national war effort have underwritten a stupendous production program for the B-29s and sisterships, indicates that., despite the discussion about the effectiveness of aerial bombing, the men who know are anxious to adopt the same tactics in the war against Japan. NAZI LP'ADKKS CONI'TSKD. Two revelations have come to light regarding our invasion of France and they show the amazing scope of. Allied war plans which completely confused and befuddled the enemy cenmanders. 'It is now reported that, about 300,000 tons of old, stone-laden shipping was deliberately sunk along the beachheads to crente. artificial "ports" through which men and supplies were literally poured into Normandy. It is known that the Nazis did not believe a major operation could be supplied without possession of a great seaport. When the Anglo-Americans were pressing the German Seventh Army, which was assigned to "annihilate the invaders," its commander frequently demanded reinforcements, only to be told that the Nazi high command expected a big landing higher up the coast. Consequently, the battered Seventh Army was not strengthened, thus paving the way for the decisive break-through which resulted in a German disaster. RANK PKOFITS IVCKKASK. Leo T. Crowley, chairman of the Federal Deposit Jnsuranee Corporation, reports that the new profits of hanks have risen to record levels. He says that in 1043 the net profits of national banks amounted to 8.9 per cent of total capital accounts and that for the first six months of 1944. net profits were at a rate of ten per cent per annum. This is interesting information in view of the fact that hanks in V.VA. 19:12, 19:53 and IP.'M actually lost money, to the amount, of 1.5 per cent. 5 per cent. 9.9 per cent, and !").!")'' per r-ent, respectively.
