Belgium, the small country that has been overrun by war twice in a generation, has officially renounced her pre-war policies of neutrality and, through her foreign minister, suggests a regional security pact, within the framework of a massive global plan. Nearly everyone remembers that after the first World War, the Belgian Government, intent upon preventing the use of Belgian soil in future warfare, attempted to follow a policy of strict neutrality between Germany, on the one hand, and Great Britain and France on the other. So strict were the Belgians that no conversations were permitted with British or French military leaders.

Here's an interesting item, which should be pleasing to octogenarians, especially. Walter S. Goodland, Wisconsin editor, who will be eighty-one years old on December 22nd, has been elected Governor of the State of Wisconsin. In the previous election, Mr. Goodland was elected Lieutenant-Governor but, upon the death of Governor-elect Loomis, became acting Governor for two years. Despite his age, he conducted the affairs of Wisconsin so well that the people, in his eighty-first year, elected him Governor in his own right. While many fine accomplishments have been performed by men of mature age, it is somewhat rare fo ran octogenarian to be elected Governor of a State. In the caBe of Go Goodland, his opportunity to serve h i s people came unexpectedly through the death of the Governor-elect. However, he measured up to the responsibilities of his office and demonstrated his ability to serve and please his people. ARGENTINA PREPARES FO RWAR. In view of news dispatches from Argentina, it is very difficult to prevent the conclusion that the Government of the South American country is getting ready for war. Compulsory military service and increased prdouction of equipment, weapons and munitions, together with an extraordinary mobilization of resources of men and materials, seem to indicate other than peaceful intentions. The signs are emphasized by the deterioration in the relations between Argentina and other American States since the revolution in 1943. Apparently, a militaristic philosophy inspires the Argentine Government and there is, as yet, nothing to lear' one to believe that the people of Argentina offer effective opposition. New York Sumner Welles, forme-Under-Secretary of State: "There are already signs that some peoples are feverishly maintaining that they can best fort! to be helpful.

And letting Craig go without any effort to keep him. But I cannot understand Craig." "Well, neither can I. Now," she suid, in a kind of abject voice which was not at all like her.

"Sarah, it was ull so clear then. It's only now, after I've had time to think and time to regret that 1 see it was all wrong. I believed it then, though. I never suspected." "Suspected what?" 1 asked with a rather nervous glance at my watch again. ".Suspected whom?" "Anything. Anvbodv," answered Drue. "And now you do?" "Now 1 do. Now I" she stopped and said in a kind of windier staring at the rug "now I've got to know what happened." That at least was a step in the right direction. I said briskly and. f remember, almost gaily, "Good for you! It's high time. I'm proud of you." "It's not easy," she said. "I mean well , su ppose A lex 1 a is right. Suppose Craig dow't want to see me. I mean well, I've no reason to think that he does. He had every chance." "Look here," I observed briskly. "Obviously you had two people against you in this house Pop and Alexia. I don't know Pop, but I can't say I took to Alexia. Maybe Craig repented his quick marriage and asked his father to get him out of it. But maybe not. As I aee it, you'll have to brace yourself for whatever comes. I mean, have an understanding with Craig." "That's why 1 came," she whispered. I went on, "You may have to take it on the chin, you know. Craig is free, white and twenty-one; be could have come to you." "I know," she nodded. "On the other hand, all sorts of things could .have happened. It's a little melodramatic -to suspect people of that particular kind of finagling I mean, oh, destroying letters, that kind of thing. Still it could have happened." - "I've got to have it clear, Drue said. "Right. It comes under the heading of unfinished business. It . . . I atoraed abruptly, for someone knocked.

Anna Haub, the Brent maid, stared at Drtie ir. frightened recosnition and pleaded with h?r not o remain. That, coupled with Drue's unusual anxiety about their patient. Craig Brent. ' was the first indication Sarah had t!:at her attractive young friend was acquainted with the Brents. Anna reluctantly took them to Craig's room and explained that Craig, victim of a mysterious bullet. was found in the garden the previous night by Beevens. the butler, "Mr. Nicky," and Peter Huber. an old school friend of Craig, adding. "They said it was an accident he was cleaning a gun." She again begged Drue to leave before Conrad Brent, Craig's father, discovered her presence. They were studying their unconscious patient's chart when Alexia Brent, Conrad's glamorous wife, stormed into the room. She demanded that Drue leave immediately, saying, "Craig doesn't want you and Conrad won't have you here." Drue refused to go until she had talked with Craig. When the indignant Alexia departs, Drue tells Sarah the strange story of her romance with Craig Brent. They had met and married over a year ago after she had nursed him back to health following an auto accident. When Craig brought his bride home, Conrad Brent made no effort to conceal his disapproval of their marriage; he told Drue that Craig's career in the diplomatic service would undoubtedly suffer as a result. Later Craig was called to Washington and Drue confides, "I never saw him again, until today. Sarah is telling the story. CHAPTER SIX Nvr why not?"

It wasn't very pleasant." Her voice hardened a little and she said. "Be-ides. there was Nicky. Well, Craig didn't come back, and I couldn't t:iv here. I went away." fshe siopned. as if that was all the story. -Do vou mean to tell me you let them influence you like that?" "Thai wasn't all," she frowned "Vou see. Sarah, I couldn't stay here. Craig gave up his job. That was why he stayed so long in Washington. He had decided to get training as a pilot. It was before the war bean, before we got into it.' 1 nodded. It had been then only a matter of weeks since Pearl Harbor. "He wanted to get into the air foree. Al that time, tuey wouldn't ...i. - .Pt,lui nian didn't :he whole thing. He wrote a letter hat 1 wish I'd kept. I didn't. 1 jurne'd it. He said that 1 hud wrecked Craig's chosen career. He said that Craig now wanted to take training as a pilot and that 1 was again the r.btaeie. He said that he regrrnted everything he had said to me; he paid that he was ready to accept our marriage that is. our eventual marriage." Khe stopped and took a long breath and J saw the picture complete. It was incredible, of course. Except that women like Drue can b just that incredible. "So you believed him. You agreed to Jut bygone? be bygones. And you promised to divorce Craig, let him complete his training, and then remarry." "That was the idea." "Good heavens, Drue!" "1 know. But then it seemed right. We had murriud so quickly. Craig was giving up his job; and his father convinced me that the one thing he wanted was to get into the air force. Mr. Brent was I can't tell you how convincing he was. He asked me to forgive him for everything he'd said in anger. He said that he believed at lust that Craig and I really loved each other. He said that Craig had set his heart upon becoming a pilot and getting into the army or the navy air foree. He said Craig was deeply patriotic and he is. He said that what it the divorce, I mean really amounted to was merely a long engagement, and not very long at that. He made it seem so reasonable. He said that Craig would never ask me for it himself and if I loved Craig 1 would get the divorce. And that as soon as the year of training was up we could remarry." It was clear that there was "dirty work at the crossroads." "ISo you got the divorce?' "Yes. It took six weeks. "And Craig got his training?" "Ye." "What happened then? 4,I don't know." Drue shook her head and looked awav from me. "He didn't come back." "But didn't he understand why you did it? Didn't you see each other and write and . . Khe shook her head again. "No. That is, I did write a few times. But he didn't answer. The divorce went through quietly and quickly." "And you never tried to see him?" "No." Her mouth moved a little wryly. "You see, 1 had my pride." And it had cost her enough. Well, I didn't say it. I pulled my uniform over my head and struggled through it and glanced at my watch. "But now," she said unexpectedly, "it's different. Pride doesn't seem to matter so much. I'm older; I know what 1 want. I was such a child then." Sfte was still a child.
