Intejtitl, Bill iintea to the corsae in that tiindow. "No," he said, " wnt that one. It's for ie, isn't it?" "Why, yes of course." The salesman produced the cor sage and Toby fastened it to her shoulder. Turning from the mu- ror she said." "Oh, Bill, they're beautiful! They're the loveliest tlowers in the world." "They should be. Didn't I tell you we were going to celebrate?" . He handed the salesman a bill and a moment later received the change. Out in the night once more, Toby said, "Bill, I've never had such lovely flowers. Never! But t shouldn't have let you spend all that money. We're going back to our old cafeteria " Bill looked up from the nickels and dimes in his hand. "What?" he said. "Go back to that cheaD. ordinary place on a night like this? Hardly!" Then he grinned. "I'll tell you what, though," he said slipping her arm in his once more. "There's another one up the street that isn't so bad!" They dined at the cafeteria up the street. Over Iho day's "spe cial" pot roast, cabbage salad, hot rolls and coffee for U5 cents Toby told the whole story: Why she had left Bergman's; how she had gone hunting for a job and met Hiatt and how he had sent her to the Models' League: how she had gone from there to Hiatt's tudio. Hilt was indignant when he heard what had happened at the store. "But someone must have planned thai," he said. "They must have done it deliberately." "i know. But what can I do ibout it?" "You ought to be able to do something. Believe me '' "I can't. Bill. Even if I knew who did it knew for sure I couldn't; forcp them to take me back." "No, I suppose not." She went on, telling him about the Models' League and her talk with Ben Blake. Bill listened, smoking thoughtfully. She explained how all her hopes of becoming a professional model depended on the pictures Hiatt had made that afternoon, and they discussed this, too. ., It was late when they left ' the cafeteria. Toby ruled out Bill's suggestion of a movie and they rode uptown on the subway. Bill's mood of gaiety had returned. It seemed to vanish, however, as they walked the blocks between Toby's rooming house and ihe subway station. A dozen steps from the door he said shortly, "Toby, there's something I want to say to you. I hope you II understand.' these reasons why the federal gov- i . . , . 1, i oucnve enterprise. 3.

The majority of drivers are within the realm of safety at speeds under 50 miles an hou Few can be, trusted to drive faster than that. The Oregon statutes governing speed on highways are now in state of chaos, dueo conflicting and ambiguous provisions, and so the state and local police somewhat handicapped in regulat ing speeds. The laws should be clarified and a speed limit ostab lished. ft could easily be adapted to present conditions and altered as changed conditions might war rant. Other states have found that speed limits are necessary. Experimentation with unlimited speeds has proven this. Oregon, then, may proceed now to curtail excessively rapid travel without imposing hardship on out of state drivers and shoultf do so for the protec tion of all.

"You understand about the pictures, don't you. Miss Ryan? I'll send them over to Blake as soon as they're finished. HeMl get in touch with vou after he's seen them " He looked down at her, grinning "So," he s'aid, "my young friend is on the threshold of fame and fortune! Going to be a model. Going to hove your picture on magazine covers and bill boards from Maine lo California. Going to make a lot of money! That calls for a celebration, Toby. A regular bang-up" She stopped him. "Oh, but I'm not, Bill. I mean this was just a sort of try-out. If the pictures are good, maybe I'll have a chance." "The pictures," he told her, "are going lo be knock-ouls. Didn't I see them being made? Yes, Miss Ryan, tonight we celebrate." The elevator halted and they stepued inside. A moment later they were making their way through the lobby to the street. Bill went through the motions of adjusting a monocle. He said, with an exaggerated accent, "Beastly nuisance, but, do you know. 1 neglected to bring the town car this afternoon.

Parental co-operation consists of vigil by parents over the condition of their children, and absenting from school those children who show any suspicious symp toms, such its fever, sore throat, headaches or even those attending a common cold.- Children who are seemingly not very 111 can exposo fellow-pupils to contagious diseases for several days before they themselves give complete evidence of affliction. Disease is most communicable during the first week of its course in . o patient. At present scarlet fever and measles are the most prevalent communicable diseases in y.ibany. Both, particularly the former, are fratight with danger. Thus far it cannot be said that on epidemic ertists, but conditions are such that carelessness could cause a disastrous spread of either these or1 (other contagions. 'White the majority of scarlet feVcr bases here are of a mild nature, their lethal possibilities are evidenced by the fact that at least 'one death has resulted from th'lB disease here within the last few weeks. The mildness of the nilmcftt is deceptive and conducive to'heglect, but It should not be for- gdtten that severity of contagious discuses Increases as the scope of their epidemic increases, and the mere fact that the situation Is not serious Just now is no guarantee that It may not become dangerous later, Bo the thing to do is to check spread of the disease before it gets out' of hand. According to the state board of .health, scarlet fever has been increasing since 1932, indicating that the- disease can return to the severe type. While seven deaths occurred and 830 cases of scarlet fevtr were reported in 1932, the total number of cases in 1935 was 1,919, resulting In 14 deaths. Children are mole likely to transmit the disease than adults. Accordingly all children known to have been exposed to the disease sholild be quarantined or isolated for seven days, both for their own good and that of others. The Dick test usually reveals Hie degree of immunity which an individual may possess, and if employed will help to determine Just hdw much care onu should take in avoiding the disease. Use scarlet fever antitoxin is of value in preventing spread of the disease and in 'ameliorating its severity and the gravity of its after effects. Prompt calling of a physician or health authority when a child becomes ill in any way is advisable ut such times as this, when epidemics threaten. Such a step may not only save the life of your own child but that of others. AN EXPERT'S AftVICE jComlng from Barney Oldfield. tl)e suggestion that Oregon fix its maximum automobile speed limit at 60 miles an hour is advice worth considering. tn an ihtervlew at Portland yesterday Oldfield, and he ought to know, says that 60 miles an hour is ' the Absolute maximum compatible With safety, and only a few drivers are mentally and physically capable of driving safely even at that speed, and theh only under Ideal highway conditions. Oldfield's slutomenl Is borne out not only by experience, but also by science, which has doler-rrilned that the average driver cannot control his car at excessive speeds. A racing car out of control is a dangerous wing. r t-uritu tiw. nvA7n ..Vr ...I kavi.)jii ui a: 1 1 1 1 in cident which artlue to road conditions, such as those between Tangent and Halscy, practically Hi) arc traceable directly or indi- BY LAURA LOU BROOKMAN iiMilN hkrk today Tony IIY an, hi, works lmhinil tin- jewelry counter tit a lnrno Manhattan dt-- j parlmcnt store, sine lioscn for a fihutntrraph to be tisetl in a store nilverllfH-mi-nt anil MAKTY IIIAIT, the pliotuKraplier, tills her Bhc has a "cai.ieru rare."

Ho did lot speak, but one hand went up i a quick, gay salute. Toby smil- trnck. And all at once she for got the beat and lights and her panic for a moment before. Toby herself again, smiling and confident. Hiatt's gaze followed Toby's to the door. He said, rather testily. Well?" , Hill came forward. "Are vou Mr. Hiatt?" he asked. "I'm from Amberson & Ulane's office. Brandt's my mime. Charlie Leslie asked me to bring this over to ou." He held out an envelope. Hiatt took the envelope, drew out some folded sheets and glanced t them quickly. Then slid them back into the envelope and droo ped it on a chair. "All right," he :ud. "Thanks." He looked at Hill moment. Then he said. "You and my model seem to know each other." Hill Smiled, "We're old friends." "Oh, is that so?" Hiatt's. tone was neither friendly nor unfriendly. Ho looked at Toby. She was still smiling. She said. Bill 1 couldn't believe it was ou for a moment. I was never more surprised in my life!" "1 was surprised, too." Hill told her. What's this all about nnvhow? bat are you doing here?" loby had turned slightly from the platform she looked down at Bill, her eyes shining ami pacer. The lights played on her hair, transforming it into a Wistenine alo. The pose she bad taken un consciously was easy and graceful. Bill said. "Gosh. Toby, vou look like a million dollars " There was a sudden "click" and both Toby and Hill turned. "Oh!" ouy exclaimed, "did you take the icture'.'" 'One of them." Hiatt told h.4Q uiun i Know l was going to, did ou?" He smiled, .olcased with himself. "That's nil riuht Like to ; 1 A my cigarette...Ilemy . 1 to Toby. "Say," ho said, "I want to know all about this. Are you working for Hiatt? Going to- be a model ?" She nodded. "I'm working for him," she said, "but it's a long story. I'll tell you all about it when I'm through." The photographer swung around "Don't move," he told the girl. "1 want you to stand there, just as you are, Going to see if I can't get a little more light on your hair " After that it was easy. Toby took the poses Hiatt directed. Sometimes she knew when he was about to "shoot" and sometimes she didn't. She and Bill and the photographer dropped into easy conversation. The studio had become n friendly place; the camera no longer frightened her; the stiffness and self-consciousness wore gone. Bill made a telephone call and came back to slump in a chair and watch. When Toby disappeared to get into another dress she came back tn find Hill and Marty Hiatt deep in a discussion of the merits of two hockey teams. She waited all of five minutes before Hiatt seemed It) notice her. But, onoo he vus ut the camera, he worked tirelessly. Toby was amazed at the painstaking care given to even the simplest poses. It was all new and interesting lo the girl. She followed Hiatt's instructions. Once when he asked if she were tired she denied it, thought her arms and shoulders ached and her feet wore weary from standing. At last Hiatt stepped back. "Thai's enough," he said. "I think, from all these shots we'll got something that will do." ' "You mean we're through?" Hiatt nodded. "Through for today." Toby got down from the platform and went to the tail windows. Outsit the sky was dark and lights gleamed in the neighboring buildings the lights ' that make New York on a winter night a sparkling, breathless fairyland. She hurried off to the (pressing room then, and came back in her last year's dress and coat and the gay little green hat. Toby said to Hill, waiting.
