The "greatest, quickest and most devastating naval gunfire in the history of warfare," is how Chester W.

While the development of aerial tactics in connection with naval warfare has made it more difficult for battleships to come to grips, there is no doubt of the effectiveness of the big guns when they get a chance to speak. The Surigao battle was conclusive, with every enemy ship destroyed, only because of the effectiveness of naval gunfire. In the other two sea battles, which took place the 3ame time, in connection with the Japanese attempt to destroy our Leyte forces, much of the enemy fleet escaped. The use of aircraft has widely extended the range of naval power but, when fleets are anywhere near equal aircraft strength, the result of the engagement is Usually indecisive. This is not the case When dreadnaughts get together. Usually one fleet or the other goes down for the count. PRISON TERMS NECESSARY.

It is safe to assume that the defendants, after paying the fines, retained a handsome profit from their illegal transactions. Obviously, it is impossible to discover every violation of law. Unprincipled 'citizens do not hesitate to violate regulations for profit, counting upon the fine, if it arrives, to be less than their gains. Obviously, OPA regulations will be violated with impunity by racketeers and dishonest merchants until adequate provision is made for stiff prison terms. In fact, one of the difficulties in enforcing regulations designed to protect the public and curb dishonest business practices is the inability of the court, in most instances, to send the guilty to jail.

'1 found that revolver in the garden," she said steadily, "yesterday after noon." "G garden," stressed the District Attorney. "Where where Craig was shot. It was hidden and I found it. In the burlap wrapping around one of the rose shrubs." J Nugent's eyes had an odd expression. "Why did you look for it, Mss Cable? Why did you bring it to your room?" She turned back to him; there was less defiance in her manner when she spoke to the state troop lieutenant, more confidence which might be her undoing. Soper was ready to pounce upon any unguarded admission. Drue answered, "Because I didn't believe the story of an accident. I went to the garden just to have a look at the place where my" aha corrected herself quickly "where Craig had been shot. I searched it and I found the gun. That's all. I brought it to my room because I intended to show it to Craig when he was better." . "Why?" queried Nugent. "Because it proved someone shot at him." "He says it was accident," said Nugent, watching her closely. "ie ought to know." - "I wanted him to have that revolver." - "You're saying that his accident was actually an attempted warder?" cried District Attorney Soper. Again she whirled around to face him, her chin high, her voica steady. "He wouldn't have been cleaning a gun in the garden at eleven o'clock at night!" "Did you know that the revolver belonged to Conrad Brent?" "I wasn't sure." "Did he admit It belonged tp him when you took jt to the library ?" "Yes. He recognised it and asked where I'd found it." . "See here, Miss Cable," said Soper with a crafty look "did yoa accuse him of trying to kill his sob ?" "No. Certainly not." "Why did you give him tha revolver ?" "Because I wanted him to know at it, of course." "Why?" persisted Soper. "Naturally because something ought to be done about it It proved Craig didn't shoot himself. Ha wouldn't have hidden it." "Exactly what did Mr. Brent, Senior, say?" Drue flushed. "He said I eouldnt have found the revolver there. Ha said I tvfci was trying to make trouble." "And yon . . ." "I saw then that he was 01. I told him he'd better lie down. I started to leave but he he asked me to stay with him. And than aa got worse. And and died." 4To be continued) Caerrta-bt tr Miim Q. Kbmtmtf "1 can't swear to anything and I won't. I've only said that Drue ame downstairs while Conrad was in the library." Soper was furious. "You said they had a row. You said you saw her in the library with him just before he died. You said she threatened him with his own revolver 1" "I won't swear to anything," persisted Nicky, ignoring Alexia's frown and Maud's angry eyes. "You don't have to," shouted Soper. "Every word you've said has been taken down in shorthand. Perfectly openly; you were all aware of it." One of the troopers in the corner, scribbled that, too, in his shorthand tablet. But Nicky shook his head. "You'll never get me to sign it or to admit anything of the kind on the witness stand. I won't be the one to bring evidence like that against anybody in court." Alexia was biting her full under-lip with sharp white teeth, her eyes ominously fixed on Nicky. Maud made an angry little exclamation and must have vanished about then, silently, for when next 1 looked for her she waB gone. Soper announced angrily that Nicky would be a witness; he couldn't help himself; he, Soper, would see to that. Lieutenant Nugent said suddenly, "We'll question Miss Cable alone. Right, Soper?" So the others Alexia, Nicky, Peter and Beevens were obliged to leave, and did so rather reluctantly, I thought. Nugent closed the door after them briskly, and Soper looked at me. "Well?" he said sharply, "are you staying here?" "I am," I declared firmly. "Oh, let her stay," suggested Nugent. The District Attorney shrugged and Drue, standing very slim and erect beside the tall armchair, her gray eyes level and clear, said, "I didn't murder him." "You were with him," accused Soper. "You had a motive. . . ." He began his attack, but Nugent's voice cut sharply into the bluster: "Miss Cable, will you make a statement of exactly what you did do ?" "I think she ought to have a lawyer," 1 asserted again. "You can refuse to talk, Drue." "I'll tell," she said. "I'll tell a? much as I can." I held my breath again and tried to think of ways to stop her if she said too much. "I was in the library as Nicky says," Drue began. "I did want to talk to Mr. Brent. So I waited until he returned from his walk, then I came to the library. We talked for some time. He had a heart attack then and . . ." She faltered, and I was sure she was going to tell about the hypodermic. I rustled warningly. Her hand went up to her throat, as if to stop the words on her lips. "And he died," she said. "If such a large amount of digitalis was found, I don't know bow be got it." District Attorney Soper burst into question again. But this re- CHAPTER TWENTY I vVtf "That's enough, Mrs. ," boomed Nugent. But Super'? v,, rose over Nugent's. "She" JK-r fectly right," he said. "I've t- ,-jr:u su from the very first. She's perfectly right, Nugenti there's no other real explanation. I've been patient, I've covered every possible line of inquiry. But that's enough . . ." He got up and looked at Drue, his little eyes bright and accusing. "She did it. She intended to kill him with the revolver. Then he had a heart attack and this way was easier for her. She hid his medicine; pretended to him it was gone; told him she'd save him. And then she killed him. Arrest Drue Cable now, Lieutenant. We'll get a grand jury indictment for murder in the first degree." Nicky looked at his fingernails. "Well," he said softly into the sudden silence, "I may as well tell you, then. Drue was with Conrad in the library. I saw her. And I heard her say, 'I've got your revolver.' They had a terrific row." Drue rose automatically, but she didn't speak. I was close beside her. Alexia said something low to Nicky. Maud looked triumphant; Peter started for the door as if to tell Craig and then as quickly came back into the room again. District Attorney Soper said loudly that he was right, he'd known it from the first, but Nicky ought to have told it earlier. I believe I said loudly, too, a number of times that Drue wouldn't talk without a lawyer. I couldn't think of anything else to say. Then Nu-gent's voice cracked like a whip, so viciously that it brought us all up short. "Do you mean she had the revolver with her? In her hand?" he asked Nicky. "Ob, no," answered Nicky. "I would have seen it." "Then she wasn't actually threatening him with it?" "I can't say about that," said Kicky airily. "And what did you do then?" "After I saw her go into the library?" Nicky's tone was very nonchalant "I thought from the sound of Conrad's voice that she well, might need somebody to back her up. But she seemed able to take care of herself, so I went upstairs. I'd just got to sleep when something fell I don't know what and they said Conrad was dead." "What else did you bear?" demanded Soper quickly. "What did Brent say when she told him she bad his revolver? Did he call for help? You must have heard what else they said!" Nicky paused, looked at his fingernails, thought for a moment and said, "N-no, no, I'm afraid not.' "But if you heard their voices..." began Soper, and Nugent said ab-rupdy,"Vou'U swear to all this, Mr. Senoua?"
