The survey revealed what one would naturally suspect, that interest in the Bible appears to increase with age. Of people over fifty years of age, fourteen per cent read their Bibles daily. ' The Institute is rather liberal in its definition of a Bible-reader, taking its survey on the basis of individuals who have takentime out one or more times during the year to read the Bible. By this test, sixty-two per cent of the people of this country qualify in 1944. The percentage varies in certain sections of the United States. South of the Mason-Dixon Line, the percentage is seventy-nine; in the West Central area, it is sixty-nine; but in New England and the Middle Atlantic region, the percentage is the lowest. The test gives us figures for those who read their Bibles daily and then jumps to the other end of the scale, to those who read them one or more times during a year. This is a wide comparatively light requirement, thirty-eight per cent of our people cannot qualify, and, it must be presumed, do not read their Bibles at all. We have repeatedly stressed our belief that every individual can study the Bible with profit. We are not among those who believe that the Holy Book can be utilized as a sort, of mystic fortune-teller, to give-the answer to every materialistic question, but we are quite satisfied that its Taking a Backward Glance Recipe for Dry Suds Here is the formula for making dry suds: Measure five cups of water into a saucepan and add a half cup of soap eilher-shaved bar soap, soap flakes, or soap scraps.

I waa little wiser for my paina but convinced, if I had not been bo fore, that they were in earnest about an investigation. For they had been taking fingerprints from smooth surfaces in the room they had been using a tiny hand vacuum on furniture and rugs; the decanter of brandy had been removed; there were' chalked crosses on the sofa and on the rug indicating, I thought, the position of Conrad Brent's body. Pictures had been taken. The body of Conrad Brent bad been removed. Two troopers were still there, on of them writing shorthand notes Tho other blowing a small cloud of yellowish powder from a contrivance that looked like a tiny bellows upon one of the wooden panels across the room on the right aid of the fireplace a panel that I saw then, was actually a swinging door leading into a tiny washroom. f-I could see walls tiled in shining, pale green beyond. He turned to look at me and the trooper with tho tablet stopped writing to look at me, too. There being no welcome in either look but rather the contrary, I retreated; anyway I had seen all I wanted to see. Nicky looked up as I passed through th hall but did not stop ma.

And they had thought of us, nurses, and had taken the little instrument and medicine bags to search even before they could possibly have got results from the autopsy. I didn't like that; but I didn't tell Drue. Craig slept and the rain beat down and there was no way of knowing what the police were doing, what Alexia was doing and Nicky, or Maud.
