He offer of the soldiers, sailors and marines wnen they come back. Municipalities are naturally interested in providing employment because otherwise the men must look elsewhere for work. ' I There is every reason why the smaller cities and towns throughout the nation should do likewise. Nearly every Chamber of Commerce wants additional population. They seek to attract new industries in order to have jobs to attract new residents. What about the hundreds of men who will be hunting somewhere to live and work? : Clinton has many of its sons and some of its daughters in active service. Most of them, if they can, will prefer to live and work here, among the people they know. What are the prospects that they will have the opportunity to work? If they cannot find employment, they will certainly have to depart for other localities. '. " It is time for Chambers of Commerce, civic groups and officials to begin to survey the local situation. Not only should a record be made of every resident in service, but a systematic check-up should be carried out in order to ascertain whether his, or her, old job is available. We know it would cheer those fighting for us at home to know that we are doing something about them and getting ready to help them when they come home. The progressive municipality, if it wants to keep its service men as residents, Will go further than this. It will see that there is available expert assistance to explain to returning veterans the opportunities available to them under various legislative enactments. Helping some man to secure a loan, to build a home or start a business, will make him a permanent resident and, in turn, may provide work for others. , The people here would probably be very much interested in a new industry that promised to give employment to scores of residents and to distribute a payroll regularly for the improvement of buying power. In the ranks of the returning veterans we have an opportunity to retain scores and scores of men and women, each adding his or her income to the combined purchasing power of the local trading area.

Hutchison, of SYNOPSIS When Drue Cable learned her former husband, Craig Brent, was the victim of a so-called accidental bullet, she persuaded her friend and fellow nurse, Sarah Keate, to answer with her the call made by Dr. Claud Chivery from a small New England town. Sarah was unaware of Drue's previous connec-lion with the Brent family which included Craig's father, Conrad; Alexia, Conrad's glamorous young wife who, at one time, had hoped to marry Craig; Nicky Senour, Alexia's twin brother; and Peter Huber, a friend of Craig. Anna Haub, maid at the Brent mansion, told how Craig was found in the garden the previous night, adding, "Beevens, the butler, said it was an accident-Mr. Craig was clean ing a gun." Alexia ordered Drue to leave before Conrad Brent discovered her presence. Drue told Sarah the strange story of her romance with Craig. They married more than a year ago and Conrad Brent disapproved. Craig's work in the diplomatic service summoned him to Washington, and Drue returned to New York. Shortly after, she re Drue hesitated. Then fhe lifted her little chin higher. "I don't believe that," she declared. Conrad Brent with a sharp and yet controlled gesture 0f anger lifted the decanter and set it hard and abruptly down again. He said, "Look htrc, Miss Cable" Drue interrupted and said quietly, "Mrs. Brent." "Mrs. ..." "I did not actually resume my maiden name. I am legally Mrs. Brent." A small purplish flush crept up into Conrad Brent's cheeks. "But you are not my son's wife," he said, biting off the words. "And I must tell you, painful though it is to me, that my son doesn't want you. He asked me to arrange the break with you. I didn't want to tell you that at the time. I didn't want to hurt you needlessly; and Craig wanted to spare you as much as possible. Nothing but your dtfiant and suspicious attitude would have induced me to say it. But you must understand that Craig doesn't want you to be his wife and didn't." All this time Drue was standing, outlined sharply in her crisp white South Third street.

There was a little silence while he digested that. Then he turned to Drue again. "You might be needed tonight. But, understand, I'll have no attempts to talk to my son. If you stay at all, you stay on my terms." After a moment, Drue said, whispering, "I'll stay. I've got to stay. . . ." "Very well," grumbled Conrad Brent. "You take the noon train tomorrow. That's all." She waited an instant or two, looking at him ; theh she went to the door. But with her hand on the doorknob Drue turned to him again. Her clear gray eyes had a thoughtful, queerly measuring look. She said very quietly, "You are his father. I suppose you love him. But I could kill you for what you've done to me." With which unexpected remark she walked out of the room and closed the door behind her. Well, I must say I was a little disconcerted. I turned to Conrad Brent who had got out a handkerchief and was touching his bluish lips with it. "Look here," I said abruptly. "I know that girl. She'd make anybody a good wife." "And a charming daughter-in-law," grimaced Conrad Brent, "threatening to murder me." "She didn't mean that; you know it. She . . ." He interrupted me. "My dear Nurse. I have no doubt she would make an admirable wife for, as you aptly put it, anybody. But not" he drew himself up and glanced up at the coat of arms and said in a dilTerent voice "but not for my son. That's all, Nurse." Without giving me another chance to speak he went to the door and opened it for me, and I was obliged to precede him into the hall. The aspect of the great, solemn hall had changed. A fire had been lighted and there was a little group of people having tea there, with chairs and tables drawn up near the fire and Beevens hovering in the background. Alexia, sitting behind a lace-draped table, was pouring from an old silver service that was polished till it looked as soft as Haute, Joe Nixon, Linton and Christa Osha, Hoonvllle. tellers Clinton men seeking office in clude Mike Fiizpatrfck, for inter national board member; Tommy Stewar, district executive board, sub-district 4; Hilly Scott and Roy M. lVck for district legisla tive committee, subdistrict 4.

To lreent Play The Dana high school seniors ceived a letter from Conrad (which he claimed Craig had a ked him to write) stating his son had resigned to enter aviation training, only to discover married men were ineligible. Conrad said Craig wished Drue to divorce him, but promised they could remarry when the training period was over. Drue got the divorce but never received any reply to the letters she wrote Craig. Now, she is determined not to leave until Craig regains consciousness and can talk with her. Dr. Chivery told the state trooper that the bullet be removed from Craig's shoulder was accidentally thrown away; the gun, too, is missing. He warned Sarah not to re peat anything the patient might say in delirium. Later, Craig mumbled something about "yellow gloves." From the window, Sarah saw Drue disappear behind a hedge and emerge soon with something hidden beneath her cape. A few minutes later Drue entered the sick room just as Craig cried out, "But that's murder! Tell Claud. There'll be murder done' Drue attempted to question him but he lapsed into drugged sleep again. Sarah is summonded by Conrad Brent and followed Beevens into the library, as Maud Chivery, the will present a three-act play, uniform, against the door. ' Conrad Brent touched the decanter again, absently, and said, "As I say, I'm sorry. But you must have known the truth when he didn't come back to you after he finished his training." Drue took a step forward at that and asked, "He did finish then?" A queer, indecipherable expression flitted across Conrad Brent's face; it was something curiously yet shrinkingly secretive. Then he said, stiffly, "Yes. He leaves soon. I don't know his destination." "Why is he at home?" "I don't really know that you have a right ask," observed Conrad Brent. "However " he lifted his shoulders and replied briefly "he is home on leave. Now, of course, his leave will have to be extended. As I say, I don't know where he is to be sent. He doesn't know. He is'1 again that queerly shrinking and secretive look came into his face "he is to be a bomber pilot." "Bomber . . ." murmured Drue in a kind of numb and expressionless voice. "Yes," said Conrad Brent. There was a strange little silence in which, I thought, for the first time prob-; ably Conrad Brent shared an emo-; tion with the girl he hated. He seemed then to realize it. for he 'Safety First, Friday evening at 7:30, o'clock In the high school gymasium. Miss Marzelle Kerns. fortunate.

But he insisted upon introducing me to Maud Chivery, who nodded briefly, and to Nicky Senour whom I had already encountered and who remembered it for he wai barely civil, and to another young man, tall and blond and nice-looking who arose at once from the bench before the fireplace and bowed, and answered to the name of Peter Huber.
