Evidently he remern bered Margaret Gregg as a Broadway celebrity. He said little about himself. In fact he talked little, but it was evident that he was enjoying himself. They sat at their table after most of the other diners had gone. - ' In the cab, driving to Toby's apartment, Hillyer, said, "I expect it's been a dull evening for you." "But it hasn't," Toby assured him. "1 had a grand time." "Well you've given me a very pleasant evening. Very - pleasant indeed. Perhaps if you're sure you. won't be bored you'll let me take you to dinner again. And to the theater. Would you like to see ;Here Comes the Queen', some night next week?" i "Here Comes the Queen" was Ihe. newest musical play, with a cast that included several stars. It had been acclaimed unanimously by the critics, and tickets were sold for weeks in advance- 1 "I'd love to!" Toby- said. . "Then I'd like very much1 to take jou. How would Tuesday night suit you?" She said that so far as she knew she could go Tuesday. There was always the possibility of an emergency assignment that could not be avoided, or of re-takes. It was agreed that, unless something unforseseen prevented, they would go see "Here Comes the Queen" Tuesday night. Hillyer slaid he would; telephone Tuesday morning. . A few moments later they reached her door and Toby said good night. She hurried up the BY RODNEY DUTCHEH SKA Hervlre forrlede W7A8HINGTON. Gentlemen, of " the AAA are heading ont of Washington, in all directions, armed with portable blackboards and large supplies of chalk- With these they will undertake to explain how the Individual farmer can participate in the soil conservation program of 1936 and collect his portion, of the' $470,000,000 which Congress has . appropriated for payments for. such participation. It is estimated tbat SO per cent of American farms wilt be under the program and ' each farm will be a. separate problem to be solved by community and county commit-' tees. - . Experts,- however, have been buay working out "examples" which ran be presented to state and ' county committees now to show how the regulations should operate under a given set of conditions and ; there are as many such sets of conditions as there are combinations In a deck ot cards. Some experts say It Is all hor ribly confusing and others say it is as easy as pie when- you - get to understand it. Anyway, given below is an "example." worked out for the cotton belt, which may be Illuminating, although rates, types of farming, productivity, and many other- factors present innumerable variations, a a- a A FARM of 130 acres last year (on which year the all-Important soil-depleting base acre age is computed) contained 60 acres of cotton, 25 In corn for, home use, 10 In other grains for home use, 15 in lespedeca (bush clover), 25 in-woodland, and,-5 in buildings area, roads, and waste i-1 land.

She wanted to tell Har- iet about the evening and about Hillyer. - .... But Harriet was not at home. She came in later, when Toby was asleep. It was not until next morning, over their, coffee and orange juice, that the two girls dis cussed Toby's adventure. What do you think?" Toby asked. "Do you think it's all right lor me to go with him?" "Why not?" "Well, he's so rich and, of course, he's lots older. It seems sort of queer " 'What's he like? Did he make any passes at you?" 'Heavens, no! He s just as nice as he can be- And I do like him." 'Then, I don't see why you shouldn't let him . spend some of his. money on you. He s got plen ty of it." Harriet was pleased. Toby had been staying at home too much lately, mooning over Tim, Jamie-son who had obviously forgotten her. What Toby needed. was to get out and -go places. Hillyer seemed: an ideal escort-.-He might even be seriously interested in Toby.' Other girls not nearly so pretty had married millionaires. - Hnrrict raised her cup of coffee. t OREGON'S FAVORITE KITE; 1151401 seeocd-elaM mail.

Mocensen A Co., National Advertising Representatives, SPEND FOR PEACE .'Nobody can say that the American people aren't getting plenty of advance warning about this much-talked-of next war. The last one took us by surprise. Being surprised, we floundered about in uncertainty; floundering we got into the war ourselves. The new one is visible a long way off- No one knows 'just where or how it will start, but that it is getting ready to start somehow, somewhere, no one can doubt. And this time we have plenty of opportunity to review war's lnsunity and' to make up our minds Unit we don't want to draw cards in it. There is a helpful ' exhibit, in this connection, in a little booklet Issued recently by. the Foreign Policy Association. The booklet is entitled "Peace in Party' Platforms' and the exhibit is a little compilation of the things we could hive done with the money we spent in the World War. " To start out we could - have bought a new car for every family in' the United States, We could have furnished that car with gasoline for a year. We could have bought new clothing for father, mAther, sister and brother in every American family. We could have equipped every American home with a mechanical refrigerator, a radio, and a brand-new set of living room furniture. : And we would still have had enough money left over to give every family in the country weekly 'tickets to the movies for a year.' " ' N If 'you would understand how completely and eternally " cockeyed' this whole business of war really Is, just imagine what would happen if some American administration should propose, out of a clear sky, to spend at once the money necessary to do all those things. Suppose, for lnstanco, President Wilson had proposed to do that in 1917.' Suppose that' the fateful; Aptll session of Congress had becfi called, not to declare war on many, but to approve the purchase and free distribution of all the goods listed above. Would there not have been a hoot' of derision from every clly and town ond country store in the land? Wo would have assumed, unanimously, that the president had gone stark mad. The proposal would have gone down in our history 'us the supreme cxamplo of government folly. And yet wouldn't it have been a lot'smurlcr to do that than what we actually did do? The same amount of money would have been spent. Mine than 100,000 fine young Americans wolild have escaped death. We would have avoided an incalculable total of mental suffering. And, last but not leust, we would have had something definite to show for our expenditures. So the next time someone invites us to take a hand in a foreign war, ft might pay us to say: "Thanks but we'll just take the money that war would cost us and biry' something useful with 11." Keeping up the roads If Oregon is to reap the harvest of . tourists which' it desires and deserves it should improvo all its roads as funds become available. Apparently there will be funds available for- reconstruction of roadways as need arises, for revenues have probably' reached their lowest ebb during the last few years, and will mount hereafter. Increasing traffic which necessitates improved highway facilities; brings with it increasing rc-veneus as long as those revenues remain undiverted,, and therefore, ln. jlarge measure, supplies its own needs. , , .

No highway thus far construct ed in Oregon should be neglected nor should all effort be concen trated upon any road, but expend itures should be distributed as in accordance with good business judgment. The roads which be cause of their Strategic location are called upon to bear the brunt of traffic should receive primary consideration. Oregon has been generous to the Coast highway, for example, which will undoubtedly, bring great return to the state by attracting tourist travel. The Columbia highway is an asset which' must not be allowed to go to ruin, nor should other sections of the Ore gon Trail, o which it is a part, be overlooked, of course. They must all be maintained and improved as their capacities aru) taxod by growing traffic, each in proportion to need. Likewise with The Dalles- California and other eastern Oregon roads. But what of the Pacific nigh- way? U. S, highway No. 99 carries 60 per cent of all traffic in Oregon, according to compilations by the secretary of state's office. This road serves more people by far than any other in the state. Its needs, therefore, are the greatest. Fuirness demands, then, that the highway commission give greatest heed at present to needs for improvement of this main artery, which has always borne the brunt of Oregon traffic and which docs so now, Oregon's greatest influx of tourists is from California. From the south, too, is expected the greatest development of this business. This means that north-south traffic is destined for still further growth. Improvement of the coast road probably will increase rather than decrease demands upon the Pacific highway, for tourists going north one way will wish to return via another route. So much for the tourist angle. From the practical viewpoint, the Pacific highway traverses the most densely populated section of the state. It is the main transportation artery of the state; serves as the most used market outlet. The area tributary to It, furthermore, offers greatest prospects for development. Population increases will of themselves augment traN fic on this road, adding to the mounting volume of travel arising from prospective tourist patron age. While it would be wrong to stop spending money on other roads, it must be admitted that the Pa cific highway deserves the lion's shure of future expenditures until its tortuous and dungerous sections have been removed. Such hazards exist between Albany and Salem; between Tan gent and Halsey and In southern Oregon. Until the "bottlenecks" and dangerous curves are eliminated and the highway otherwise accommodated to its new duties attending heavier and faster traffic, no extensive highway program should bo attempted elsewhere in the state. Anent the opening of the base-bull season, a Washington, 15. C correspondent writes somewhat disparagingly of the ball-tossing abilities of our presidents. He should remember that politicians are much better at passing the uuck.

She felt he really wanted her to say she d have dinner with him. That he wanted it-very much. Why should anyone as rich and important as Jay Hillyer want to spend an evening with her? Toby didn't know. But she knew that she liked this man whom she had seen only once before. She liked him very much. So she said, after, a moment's hesitation, "Yes, Mr. Hillyer, I'll be glad to go to dinner with you.'' "What time shall 1 call?" She knew Duryea would work for two or three hours, at least, so she told him to be there at 7- ' : , She was glad afterward that she had made it that late, because it gave her time to freshen up a bit. She hadn t, of course, dressed with- ithe idea of keeping a dinner en gagement. ine was wearing the blue suit in which Duryea had first photographed her, and the black straw hat with the red roses. She put on fresh makeup, fluffed her hair und drew the hat on, smartly tilted. Hillyer seemed to think she looked very nice. He was there, not with the big town car, but with a cab, and they drove to a restaurant- near Washington Square. The rooms were high-ceilingcd and the furnishings old-fqshioned, but there was an air of dignity and elegance about the place quite unlike the restaurants to which Tim Jamicson had taken her. Tho deference shown to Hillyer was unlike the way head waiters hud greeted Tim, too. "I think," Hillyer said, "that you'll find the food very good. This is one of the few places where they really knbw how to prepare bouillebuisse. Would you like to try it?" Toby said she would, and the .richly flavored soup proved to be delicious. So were- the fillets of chicken and the salad and the dessert that came afterwards. Hillyer talked easily and Toby forgot that he was the president ot a great company, a man who must be enormously wealthy. He seemed interested in her work and skcd questions about it. Ho seemed interested, too, in what she told him about herself. She told him more than she realized ubout the days before she had become a model, about Harriot- and tho apartment they shared together, about the studios., tho people she ijj,;..-' LOS ANG ELES O&Host convenient - 3feBest Easy choirs, slep!nspirinq betfe TVra kiocre with I wurious fittings CoITm Unsurpissedsertoondhmiry- are you is rtorwiingly low oaa HOTEI 0 GLARE! to i'i iiii 555 BY LAURA LOU BROOKMAN CHAPTER XXV11 Duryen turned. "Mr. Hillyer!" he said. "How are you? Come on in !" He hurried to tho doorway where Jay Hillyer stood, eyes on th girl in blue. Toby had swung around, the color in nor cneens deepening. She had not seen Hillyer and 'she thought that her pos ing und pirouetting to display me new dress must have looked very Silly. . : : Hi ver said. "1 happened lo pe passing by the building and remembered I'd been meaning to stop in." He spoke to Duryea,. but he was still looking at Toby, us though seeing her for the first time. You've met Miss Hyan, have n't you?" Duryeu asked. "At least. I know you ve seen her pnoio- graplis- She's the Hillyer Soap Girl. Miss Ryun ?" Oh, Miss Ryan Hillyer said. 'Yes, of course we've met." He went on, as Toby came forward, 'How are you? I didn t recognize you at first." "1 m very well, thank you, Toby said. "I was just trying on this dress that was sent over to be used in a picture." From Cecile. Duryea explain ed. "How do you like it?" Hillyer did nut answer for a moment. Then he said, "The dress is very pretty. If you -can photograph Miss Hyanin it and muke her look just us she does now you II have a wonderful picture, Duryea." " ' "1 can do better than that. Wait, '11 show you " The setting for the picture had been urrnnged. On a platform lic-for the camera was a scene like a bit of summer landscape green glass, u tree with flowering branches in a background like the palest of blue skies. Duryen led Toby to the plat form. She mounted it, and stood beside the flowering tree. From a box came the hill designed to go with the blue dress a huge straw with a blue ribbon tied in a bow. Toby took the bat and dropped it carelessly at her feet. She reached for u branch of pink blossoms. Vt itlKiut turning, she said to Duryea, "Is that right?" A little more to the side, the photographer directed. "liaise your hcud no. that a too much. Lower it again.

An electric fan blew the folds of the organdie dress, gently, as though stirred by a summer breeze. "Chin up," Duryea said. "Now then, let's have, a smile. A big smile a real one. That's it!" He turned to Hillyer. "There's your picture," he said quietly. "What do you think of it?" "If you can catch- that pose und tluit expression in a photograph you'll have a sensation' "It will be better than tljat 'by the time were through with it." "I doubt it," Hillyer said. "1 doubt if even you- can do better than that " They were not ready to make the photograph yet and Toby stepped down fruin the platform. It appeared that Hillyer had come to sec Duryea about something not concerned with the series of pictures she was posing for. The two men went on talking und Toby drifted away, wailing for them to finish. Presently Duryea's secretary uppearcd, spoke td him und the photographer excused himself. Hillyer crossed to where Toby was standing. ' "Miss Ryan," he said, "you're doing a fine piece of work for us. I'm very much pleased." "I'm glnd," Toby suid. "Ive enjoyed making these pictures. Mr. Duryea is so nice to work with. And he's u wondurful 'photograph' or " . Hillyer smiled. "And he has an excellent model," lie said. "Which I'm sure has been a great help. Miss Ryan, 1'vo a favor to ask of you." Toby looked lip questioningly-Hillyer continued. "It's a pleasure," he suid, "for anyone us old as I urn to catch a glimpse of youth like yours. It well, in a sense, it turns back the years. 1 was wondering if you'd allow me to call for you later and take you to dinner." - "Why !" Toby hud never been more surprised. Of course Hillyer had driven her home from his office the duy she hud gone .there, but Unit had been because they were going the same'direction.
