Democratic strategists, who regard the Kansas governor as the most dangerous man in the Republican field, dmt't mind helping Landon's rivals with this job. - TROUBLE began when Landon. upon William Randolph Hearst's Insistence, it is reported, and over Herbert Hoover's vigorous objection, allowed his friends to file a pro-Landon slate of delegates in California against an uninstiiicted slate which w as largely pro-Hoover.

I had a cull from him the other night." . Later the same day Toby stopped in at the Model League office. She was talking to Sally whoinshe noticed a girl across the room. portam, i Actually, it might be the there is this ubout It: it does save eusily and casually. along swell, aren't you? 1 saw your picture in a magazine.

"it was an awful thing to do," Maurine said remorseiully. "I guess. I deserved everything that's Happened since. They let me go after Gladys told about what I'd done." "Where are you working now?" "I had a job, but it was only temporary. 1 huven't done anything for ubout three weeks now.

Mau-rine's beauty had dimmed and shabbiness made this more apparent. No, she hadn't a chance of becoming a model, whether she talked with Ben Blake or not. -..:'.: Suddenly Toby noticed Maurinc's hands. They were lovely long, tapering fingers, smooth und sott-looking. Toby leaned forward. "Listen, Maurine, if you want a job I'll tell you what to do. Go to the shop where I have my manicures I'll give you the address, and I'll call to tell them . you're coming. After you've had a manicure, come back and I'll see that you get to talk to Mr. Blake. He needs a hand model. I happen to know that.

As things stand now, before a drunken .driver can be punished the police have to prove that he was, in fact, drunk; and- if you have ever had your nose' Inside a court of law, you will understand that this can be a remarkably difficult thing to do. That is why statistics about auto traffic accidents fall to reveal the real extent of the menace of the drunken driver. For instance: Charles A.

"1 I saw you, but 1 didn't know if you'd want to speak to me." "Why, Maurine!" . "Well, 1 didn't know" It was no wonder Toby had not recognized Maurine. She had changed greatly. She was thinner and the lines of her face seemed said good night and put down the Duryea told her. "Try on the blue one, will you? I want to see whut it looks like." Toby said she would and went to the dressing room. The blue dress and another ot green arid white plaid hung suspended from a rod. She opened her makeup kit, applied powder and a touch of rouge, and then slipped the blue dress over her shoulders. It was a heavenly shade, blue as July skies. The dress was a crisp organdie, with a full skirt and fitted bodice and a sash at the waist. It was a style so hear the way her heirt was pounding? NO of course not, but sHe wished It would stop.' It made it hard to speak naturally. The words choked in her throat.
