Nourse, Vice-President of the Brookings Institute, urged the people "who have accumulated a tremendous backlog of wartime savings" to use it as capital to expand the businesses in their states after the war. ' .. This is good advice and very timely in view of the fact that, under the impetus of ' war, abundant capital exists in most states to finance needed business expansion. .: Accumulated savings, however, are not the only assets that a state needs to ex- ' pand its businesses. There is required, in "addition, the leadership of unselfish and far-seeing men, willing to make some contribution to the growth and progress of their commonwealth. ., We do not think that there can be any argument as to the fact that tremendous savings have been accumulated by the people of most American states. Just how this financial asset should be used is a problem but we are quite safe in predicting that the state which exhibits the most unselfish leadership will be the state to make the greatest industrial progress in the United States in the next decade.

If such is the case several other cities are slated to see a real good show. A large audience was delighted with the showing Wednesday night at the Capitol Theater. As was advertised there was fifty minutes of mirth and melody plenty of both. The first act proved especially entertaining because of its more or less personal appeal. Even the wildest predictions of D. F. Walker, Legion publicity man. as to the scandal and whatnot would be Baid of men prominent in Clinton, equaled what was said.

Having looked me up and down, she turned to straighten the bed clothing a little and put her hand against Craig Brent's brown cheek for an instant. She did it very possessively, intending to put me in my place. Before I could reciprocate (for if it was my case), Drue walked out of the dressing room, followed SYNOPSIS Nurses Sarah Keate and Drue Cable arrive at the Brent mansion, located in a small town, in response to a call from Dr. Chivery, local medico. To Sarah's surprise, Anna Haub, the Brent maid, stares at Drue in frightened recognition and pleads with her not to remain. That, coupled with Drue's unusual anxiety about the condition of their patient, Craig Brem, was the first indication Sarah had that her attractive young friend was ac-ouainted with the Brents. Anna re eyes still fixed upon Drue, -cama too. There was an instant when it looked as if they would meet at the door with something of the effect of gasoline and a lighted match in careless juxtaposition, but they didn't, for Drue came quickly into the hall and Alexia followed. I closed the door (it seemed to be my only function so far in the Brent house) and, possibly with some further idea of clarifying things, I said, "I am Nurse Sarah Keate. Miss Cable and I were sent here . . . The woman in red interrupted, still looking intently at Drue. "Oh, yes, I'd forgotten you were a nurse. So that's the way you got into the house.

He asserts that the aim of industrialists should be to produce goods to be sold at the lowest price possible, while, at ' the same time, providing the highest pos-i sible number of jobs. He plainly suggests ' "tnatmanufacturers and industrialists, if they want to retain current prosperity, should make it their first business to see that goods are sold as cheaply as possible, to increase demands, and that full employment provide the diversified income that makes a market for manufactured goods. HOOSIER HARMONY. These are the strenuous days when thoughtful persons recognize the urgent need for harmony. And in this connection ' it Beems almost providential that what are known as barbershop quartettes are coming into their own again, to demonstrate how easily harmony may be achieved. A quartette represents divergent musical classifications, such as first tenor, second tenor, baritone and bass, yet so per-, fectly do their tones blend that, when they " sing, even the most quarrelsome are lulled ; into a feeling of unity with the universe. This being true, perhaps the effort to organize barbershop quartettes throughout Indiana is a movement of greater, value than meets the eye. , A plan is under way now to foster quartettes in every Hoosier town or city of any , consequence, with a state championship at stake. The finals will be sung at Elkhart, January 27, and Ralph R. Rackham, of that city, who is one of the international directors of the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Singing in America, is striving to enlist entries from all parts of the state. , Indianapolis has several of these quartettes that have been singing for their own enjoyment and as atractions at numerous ete C.enisio.

She again begs Drue to leave before Conrad Brent, Craig's father, discovers her presence. They are studying their unconscious patient's chart. Sarah is telling the story. CHAPTER THREE Well, it was serious enough but not necessarily fatal. The bullet had entered his shoulder; they had got it out, without benefit of x-ray or operating room. It must have been a fairly ticklish task. I frowned, reading the chart and weighing my patient's chances. Drue said whispering, "Will he live?" "I hope so. I'll take night watch." She put her hands on my arm and. with pleading in her eyes, said, "Let me take it. I'll call you if anything goes wrong." "All right. I'll sleep with one eye open. There's really nothing we can do now except watch his pulse and his breathing. If he takes a bad turn ..." 1 stopped. In that case there would be plenty to do ami that quickly. 1 said to Anna, "Stay with him. please, while 1 get into my uniform." Anna nodded and I turned Into the bedroom as a woman entered the room and stood beside the bed, leaning over the unconscious man; then she placed one white pointed hand upon his forehead. Well, of course that particular gesture has much the same effect upon me that a red flag is said to have upon a bull. Soothing the fevered brow is a peculiarly revolting idea of nursing. So I said in a low but perfectly clear voice, "I'll have to ask you not to disturb my patient," and the woman looked up, coolly, at me. "Oh," she said. "You're the nurse." She was a young woman of about medium height Bnd beautiful; she had a pointed, delicate face, a slender, fine nose, and a small yet deeply-curved month with a full underlip which looked, oddly, both sensitive and cruel. Her hair was a misty, dark cloud, very short, so it molded her small, fine head in a way that made me think of a Greek statue of a boy. She reminded me then and always ef a medieval portrait beside a Greek statue, which sounds confusing, but may have been a slight indication of our Alexia's rather remarkable versatility. There was the same fragile beautv and the lurking comprehension of cruelty that one catches a faint chilling glimpse of below the beauty ana satins and pearls of ancient portraits. Italian.

Well, I didn't know who Alexia was (unless, by the look on her face, a descendant of one of the more expert Borgias), but it looked as if she might leap straight across the bed, tigerlike, for Drue's throat instead of her own where her lovely hand still clung to her pearls quite as if one of us intended to snatch them.
