The Navy has given out a detailed account of the fighting in the Second Battle of the Philippine Sea, when three Japanese groups were decisively thwarted in their effort to disrupt the landings on Leyte and compelled to retire after suffering heavy losses. By 9:20 our carriers were in a bad position, with the Jap fleet 12,000 yards away, and ready for the kill. Then, suddenly, the enemy ships hauled away, widening the distance and to the astonishment of the battered American forces, broke off the battle, steaming over the northern horizon at high speed, trailing oil from pierced hulls as they fled. Some speculation has developed as to the sudden withdrawals of the strongest Japanese force just when it had six of our escort carriers in a bad position, apparent ful, zektful new musical hit at the Columbia Theatre. into aaaea scenes ror a wcum iui Benny."

He "had to get back through San Bernardino Strait or face annihiliation". ,.In addition, the Navy reveals that, while the Japs may not have known it, "we had a battleship and cruiser force a part of the Seventh fleet in Leyte Gulf for the purpose of protecting the transports and landing craft from any enemy force attempting to destroy them". This was the force which had, before daylight, annihilated the southern enemy group and, almost unscatched, was available to prevent the entrance of the enemy's central group. , In addition, Third fleet units, which had been dispatched southward by Admiral Halscy, were getting close to the enemy. In fact, some of these ships "caught one straggling enemy destroyer before it reached the strait and sank it." FRANCE AM) ENGLAND TOGETHER.

He had an intelligent and a sensitive face and, from the nose and chin, a will of his own; but his behaviour had shown anything but thut. I thought of the gaps in Drue's story. It was brief; it was necessarily elliptical. Obviously there were only two alternatives by way of explanation; either Craig had repented his hasty marriage and ended it in that way (in which case she was well rid of hiin, but that wouldn't help Drue just then), or there was actually dirty work at the teachers.

Sarah was unaware of Drue's previous connection with the Brent family which included Craig's father, arrogant Conrad Brent; Alexia, Conrad's glamorous young wife who, at one timcj had .'loped to marry Craig; Nicky Senour, Alexia's twin brother; and Peter Huber, friend of Craig. Anna Haub, maid at the Brent mansion, told how Craig was found unconscious in the garden the previous night, adding, "Beevens, the butler, said it was an accident-Mr. Craig was cleaning a gun." Alexia ordered Drue to leave before Conrad Brent discovered her presence. Drue tells Sarah the strange story of her romance with Craig. They had met and married more than a year ago when she had nursed him back to health following an auto accident. When Craig brought his bride borne, Conrad Brent made no eff ort to conceal his disapproval. Craig'B work in the diplomatic service made it neceejary for him to go to Washington, and Drue returned to New York. Shortly after, she received a letter from Conrad (which he claimed Craig had asked him to write) stating his son had resigned his post to enter training as an aviator, only to discover ma.ried men were ineligible. Conrad said Craig wished Drue to divorce him, but promised they could remarry, with paternal blessing, when the training period was over. Drue got the divorce but never received any reply to the many letters she wrote Craig. Now, she is determined not to leave until Craig regains consciousness and can talk with her. Drue dashes from the room when Nicky Senour enters. Sarah is telling the story. CHAPTER SEVEN The word Alexia gave me the clue; he was amazingly like her. This muBt be the twin brother, Nicky- He said, "Where is Drue?" and tried to look over my shoulder into the room. I took my fountain pen and my thermometer. "Sorry," I said, "I'm just going to my patient." He moved aside to permit me to step into the hall. As I turned along it toward the big bedroom where the sick man lay, he dodged along with me as gracefully as a panther and about as welcome. I'm bound to say that I instantly added Nicky Senour to my rapidly growing list of dislikes in the Brent house. He was watching me with a gleam of bright curiosity in his face. "I say, you know," he said, Drue can't stay here. She's got to leave. You must make her leave." I had reached the door to my patient's room. I opened it and turned to Nicky Senour and all but hissed, "If I stav, she stays," and closed the door on his handsome but startled face. . of Mr. r.'.d Mrs. W.

Chicago Lord Halifax, British Ambassador to the United States urges elimination of cut-throat competition in post war era: "We can send some feverish years in a cut-throat war for international trade, of scrambling and of outsmarting each other, or stealing each others customers and blackening each others faces, until another Hitler arises to exploit the miseries of the peoples and to multiply them tenfold by another war."

In that case, a few-words between Drue and the man before me would clear up a lovers' misunderstanding. But nothing in her brief account of her almost equally brief marriage even touched upon a question that was beginning to assert itself more and more ominously in my mind. Delinitely there was something fishy about the story of the shooting. So Craig Brent had been shot, intentionally, with murderous design; then why? And, furthermore, who? Anna rose from the armchair across the room, within the curtained niche where old-fashioned bay windows made a semi-circular little room of their own. She had been crying and was wiping her eyes. I went te her and said a little sharply, "You can go. I'll stay now." When she had gone, I pulled a chair up near the bed where I could watch for the faintest shadow of a change in Craig Brent's face. The brown was sunburn ; under the tan his face was a kind of gray. I waf. sitting like that with my fingers on his lean brown wrist when the door opened and two men walked quietly into the room and closed the door behind them. One was the doctor. I had never seen Dr. Chivery before, but a kind of antiseptic spruceness about him identified him Answer to Saturday's puzzle. to see the bullet. And the gun." Dr. Chivery's hands thrust themselves into his pockets; they wera pink hands, and none too steady. He said, "Well, that's 'what I'm afraid you can't do." The state trooper turned abruptly to look down at the doctor. H didn't ask why, and the doctor fidgeted a little, then said, "You see, the bullet was thrown out accidentally; and the gun is gone. Nobody knows what happened te it." Again the state -trooper said nothing but simply waited, watching the doctor who explaiued, "In the excitement samebedy must have picked up the run. It will turn up. But it hasn't yet." - - - He waited for an answer' again and this time the state trooper obliged. He murmured, "Ah." It was just then, by the way, that I discovered an odd thing about Dr. Chivery, and that was his -habit of looking at the edges of things. For he glanced at the left corner of my can, at a post of the bed, at my patient's brown hair (so inordinately neat and wetly plastered that I surmised Anna's fine firm Jia'nd) and at the trooper's eoat buttons. He said, "You know me, Lieutenant. ' Or perhaps you don't. But the fact ' is, if I had had reason to think it wasn't an accident, perhapa I wouldn't have been quite so prompt about reporting it."
