Naturally, I wondered about Ann. Everyone did." They were coming into Annapolis harbor now. Russell pointed out the Naval academy and historic Russell smiltfj Us very bard to Phone SI Ptaoot 33 know all about any girl." "Ho righi you are.

But let me tell it this way. I understand Anne gave out in Talbot that she wax only ft practical nurse and learned what sue Knew py caring tor an invalid mowier," We were all amazed at her gcttMflJU mm-' "And lot of other things, f'll warrant," the doctor ihuckled "Ann nilgnt have been a good ac. treaa U she'd gone in for that. But about her mother, it was true. Her father died when she vaa very young. He was a university profes a the boat docked. Wr. Kaynor went on talking in bis smooth, confident voice, "That's Anne's story. She made a. very good nurse from the begin' nlng. She might have studied medicine with success, I think, had anyone appreciated her soon enough. But I am happy thlc way. Anne promised Mrs. Reynolds to stay with her until she was out of danger. Then she's coming back to is'ew Vork to join m -but out as a nurse. No. this is her last case. We would appreciate it If you'd come up for the wedding, Russell," The young lawyer's face was Inscrutable. "I won't be able to do that, Pr. Raynor." "Well, you're Invited, anyway. Anne told ni how kind you'd been And that brother, Uan, of youre There's a strange chap for you." "I love Dan very much, tr. Raynor. He's the Wggeat thing In my life." "I'm glad, Russell. Do you mind if, as an older and rather worldly wise man, 1 tell you how I size up Dan? Now I've only pee him twice, but" "Isn't it only once? Mst night?" They were,driving through Annapolis now. The doctor's eyea twinkled. "1 mustn't let myself for sor. ry brilliant, very careless Hh .nances, so he -lied leaving mailing, i'atuially i looked up all these things ulirn ; realized I was 'COMMON SENSE. Retailing is often thought of as a "war baby". Following are the actual figures for a representative chain store system, the First National Stores, as shown in the company's annual statement for the year ending April I, X944. On a volume of $164,-924,978, this company realized a net profit of $5,425,104, of which $3,190,000 went to falling In love uith Anne. I wanted to know about her." "DoesM t tov tak thing for granted,, pi. Kaynorr" young man to do. Mrs. Reynold expresses it best when she say the old live on and lb young go; away." "J ilk that. The old live on and the young go away. It' poetic thought, even if lt' A on. And your country down her I o beautiful. But let rejoic that the old go on. Mrs, Reynold I symbol of what a good old age can b. She must go on. But about Dan Russell, will you let me be very frank -nd know I mean wellT" "I think so." The doctor' hand rubbed his ' carefully shaven cheek for a meditative moment, "it's Ilk thi. f feel I owe Pan something." ' Russell's smile vas very quiet "That would be strange," "It Is strange, Russell. But ( want to be frank, as I said. I want to help Pan. He needs someone U help hlro and well, I don't know how you are fixed. If there is no place here, let him come to New ' York. To me. I'll make it my per. sonal business to get him started in some good line and make aure he doesn't want for mooty while starting. That ruins many starts, He s too far along to go through a hungry period. He must have lollies, a good home, money to rattle ',n Ills pocket. Po say yes Russell looked straiglit ahead ' and said slowly, "You're very kind." "I'm not. Don't put It that way I'm very selfish. I almost 'osi because I got a crazy Idea i ci-,-!,! oiarry very rich gill and get hospital all to myself. I'hai ,n every aurgeon's dream. I make a great deal of moneys but greedy. I'm cured now. T n.-ip Pan would be to make emends a-, least to myself. I promise you i won't dole money out to hlro like charity. I'll open a bank account for hlni and he won't even have to see or talk to me if he doesn't like my looks Ask turn if he'd like e job in bank, or a broker's office, or a well, can probebly pull string to get him most anywhere. lOven if you can afford to help 11m. thi may be the better way. In fact, the more think of it the more I like the Idea." Russell drew a slow breath. "You want blm to owe everything to you." "Gratitude only, rtiat' my weakness- 1 told you I wa selfish." "I was going to drive out to Call, fornla with him and get lim started In Los Angeles, where he think he has a chance." - Vhe doctor's fine band made -quick gesture. "New York la th place for peopl who want to make real money, ijot Angeles is for th old and movie. 1 don't lik pictures. Won't you put my offer up Co him that is. unless you want it to be secret?" (To Be Continued) The man clapped oil, on the ulioolder gayly. "Vou r' true i.uns idealise I ain e. acientuit the Federal government in income and ex- j ist iast and always.

Or Insanity in the family. iJon't look shocked. I've seen girlu as pretty as Anne where H was true. "I've never seen anyone p beautiful." Ihe doctor chuckled. "If '.didn't Know Anne so well, you'll wke me jealous. But you're engaged to Laura, aren't you?" "I was." "Having seen Mura, I suspect you still are then TViere Is a girl rVith a splendid mind. And tots of energy to use It. too. She would go far In New York. But to return to Anne. She did care for her mother all the while she was studying.

In the case of this chain store company, in addition to the $3,190,000 paid Uncle Sam last year, other direct taxes totaled $1,184,000, so that the total direct tax burden of $4,374,410 amounted to 66',; of the company's earnings before taxes. As Chain Store Age observes in commenting upon these figures: "This, of cpurse, is typical of the effect of our present heavy tax burden on private enterprise. It reveals why most authorities are agreed that taxes on business must be reduced substantially after the war if our private enterprise system is to be relied upon to supply employment for the millions who will no longer be engaged in war which they never lose sight of.

Industry has operated on a high volume, high wage basis for years. That is why the American workman is the highest paid individual in the world. All along the line, the goods which keep consumers housed, clothed, fed and amused, are created and moved on a volume basis. The volume technique in the last decade has reached near perfection in- distribution as well as in production. The existence of modern retailing depends upon volume consumption at minimum prices. It. like mass production, can operate successfully on no other principle. Long before the present step toward breaking the "little steel formula" and the instituting of still higher wages, the main worry of producers and distributors was profits will be used for the relief J of the poor among Ihe families of! lormer soldiers, sailors, and marines in Vermillion county. ; IVimhiuU i Mrs. Kred 1'orter of Indialiapo- i lis. is isiting for the latter part of the week her patents.
