J. One of the great difficulties of state and local governments in assuming a proper responsibility toward modern society is a lack of income. While most of the states are enjoying abnormal revenue, due to the spur of war incomes, the state and local rovernments, in normal times, have a probiem to secure adequate funds. I W are not inclined to agree with the suggestion that income and corporation taxes should be left exclusively to the Federal Government. Perhaps a better solution vo-.'ld be to leave the levy and collection of these taxes to the Federal Government with a plan devised to distribute a percentage of total collections to state and local governments.

There wasn't anybody to mean except Alexia. ; Craig yawned. . "But then ..." I was struck by a sudden and far-fetched speculation, if Peter Huber had fallen madly in love with Alexia, there existed a piotive for Conrad's murder. But Craig guessed my unuttered thought. "lie didn't murder my father to get Alexia! Pete's a good egg. Besides, Alexia doesn't go for him." Which was true enough. Alexia had certainly wasted no time in making her intentions clear and they obviously had nothing to do with Peter Huber. 1 put away my instrument case.

No one was In the hall below, so we weren't then under close guard. The front door closed heavily,. b-hind me and I walked, along tht driveway toward the public road. The. air felt moist, but it wai not snowing. Dusk was coming on and it was very quiet. Twenty-four hours ago I had had my first Indication of smoldering tragedy and terror in that house that lay behind me. The drive went down a long curve among clumps of evergreens. When I reached the huge, stone gate-posts I stepped out briskly along the public road which wound north and west. ..... , , - Somewhere along the way, Del-pliine, the cat, picked me up and I looked down at his battle-scared ears and wondered what had roused him so suddenly last nignt. A footstep? Clothing brushing against the door? Or had it been something more tenuous even than that; an awareness of. movement outatda that door that was denied to merely human ears? And I wondered, too, what had struck the door so sharply and so hard. Like a hammer. Presently, - having .skirted ... a meadow and reached a little ridge, I could see the village pf Balifold about a mile or two away. Del-phine decided to. leave and-did lo, on secret feline business into the meadow where his gray body slid into the shadowy growth near at hand, and vanished.; Leaving me fieiclil funds in the city to pay for miHerials ns is necessary under the relief setup.

Moving from Leyte Gulf through Suri-gao Strait and the Sulu Sea, the American striking force navigated waters ringed by Japanese landing fields and, supposedly, the 'happy hunting grounds" of Japanese submarines and torpedo craft. ,That the expedition was successful attests not only the thoroughness of defeats inflicted upon the Japanese Navy, but the growing impunity with which our fleet disregards land-based aircraft. : The carrier ship strength of the American fleet has reached such proportions in the Pacific that it is now possible for carrier-based aircraft to overwhelm Japanese land-based aircraft. Striking from the decks of , their carriers American planes blast Japanese aircraft stationed at island bases and- manage to maintain aerial supremacy despite frantic Japanese efforts to send in aerial reinforcements. It should be noted that the use of amphibious tactics alone has made possible the steady advance of American ground forces into the Philippine islands. Such tactics are only possible to the nation which controls the surrounding waters. Intelligently and boldy utilized as in the present instance amphibious offenses catch the enemy unaware in his weak places and move forward, with slight losses, to inevitable victory. .

It was cold, much colder than it hud been the day before, with the lowering kind of gray sky that threatens biiow. The day went on quietly. District Attorney Soper went away after the talk with Craig. State Police Lieutenant Nugent vanished, too, but 1 believe busied himself for some time about the house. Once a policeman came to the door with an ink pad and took my fingerprints; I must say I didn't relish the little attention but did not intentionally smudge one hand as he seemed to think. The glass slipped. He would have taken Craig's fingerprints, too, but Craig seemed He underwent the operation I Sunday at the Vermillion County I .lospltal and expects to returu He stopped and changed it.

Yet we loved each other. The differences we had didn't separate us." "I'm sure he felt as you do. I m aure he was proud of you " "No," interrupted Craig quickly. "No, he wasn't proud of me. Not that I've ever done anything to make anybody proud of me." "I meant, about your getting into the air force. Having a son going to fight for bis country." Craig laughed a little, on an un-ateady note; then explained, "You don't understand. T"t as one of our differences. He wasn't afraid; " it Isn't that. He just didn't want uie to go to war." "Why not?" "Because he because . . . Oh, it's nothing. Miss Keate." I waited, thinking of what Craig had said or rather had failed to aay. Then he added, "It was nothing my father could help.

And to take it before Drue had returned with her unlucky, hypodermic dose . Who could? Craig Brent had merely denied words, tliat. were suspiciously prophetic, Against this bt had told a story to account for,. the bnuise on his temple which not only aounded true but indicated a line of inquiry the police would do well to follow.
