"Harriet, what's hapoin- ed?" (To Be CoatUaed) "Oh, Marty!" "Now, there isn't anything for you to worry about," Hiatt assured Toby. "They've got him locked Catered at Albany. OrcK"n. pustofflc 7iK ;ll - X I THIrtG ABOUT The show was to be given at a hotel and there was a rehearsal in the morning. As usual, the climax of the affair was to be a wedding scene. Harriet was chosen for the bride. Toby had to leave the rehearsal for another appointment, and stopped at the apartment on the way back. There was a letter for Harriet and she dropped it into her purse-She did not think of the letter again until near the close of the show. A maid was helping Harriet into the ivory satin wedding gown. Toby, waiting in. her bridesmaid costume, turned suddenly. "Harriet," she said, "you're the loveliest bride I've ever seen?" Harriet smiled. "It's a beautiful dress, isn't it?" "It is, and the way you look, wearing it, you'd certainly tempt any man into matrimony." "But I don't want any man. I want a certain one " That was when Toby remembered the letter. Because, of course it was from Clyde. She had recog-niged his handwriting. Toby said, "Heavens, darling, I brought a letter for you and forgot all about it!" She went to her hand bag, rummaging through it and came back. "Here it is," she said. "I'm terribly sorry 1 didn't think of it sooner." "That's all right," Harriet smiled as she tore open the envelope. . Someone spoke to Toby and she crossed the room. It was several- moments before she was back. She came up to Harriet, and stop-ped abruptly. "Harriet!' ' she ex- a i' h si ! f! ii iup safely and he's going right back to the place where they sent him before. Ae won't find it so easy to get put again. By the way, his name is- Jonas Huckleberry, what do you think of that?" "Jonas Huckleberry!" Both girls spoke in chorus. - . "Why, yes." Hiatt loked surprised. "Does that name mean anything to doy?" "Does it?" Toby told him about the letter Toby had received, signed "Jonas Huckleberry." "Have you got it around still?" Hiatt asked. "If you have, I'll turn it over to the police." But the letter written on pink notepaper had disappeared. Toby laughed about it, after Hiatt had gone. "So my first proposal," she ksaid, "was from a crazy man." Don t worry, you 11 get plenty more." The excitement over Jonas Huckleberry continued for a day or two. Newspapers printed reports of the affair, with pictures of Toby. She didn't know how they got them. Bill Brandt telephoned and chided her about her 'nut' admirer. Jay Hillyer showed more concern. He seemed satisfied inter that there was no reason for further alarm, though he said to Toby, "If you get any more of those 'fan letters' let me know about it. We'll have them investigated. You can't afford to take chances." At the Model League office Toby heard stories of other girls who had somewhat similar experiences. The League did everything possible to protect models, under no circumstances giving out names or addresses, checking telephone calls, occasionally even taking legal measures. Now and then, however, as in Toby's case, this vigilance would be circumvented. Presently everyone forgot about Jonas Huckleberry. Harriot was busier than ever with her shopping, counting the days until1 Clyde would be back. She and Toby both-were to take part in a fashion show an important one, for buyers.

So, though the people may often err, they may learn by their error: the belter how to govern them selves. Certainly good government can not be brought about by abolish ing the polls, and so far as the nonvoter is concerned the polls might just as well be abolished. So everyone should vote, and furthermore should try to know why he is voting and what he i voting for. Just one day more to register.

Independent Afernoon Newspaper address, M. O. afocensea Co., National Advertising Reprasentativea, AN AMERICAN LEAGUE Whether or not it would insure peace in the western hemisphere, the overture of the 17 South and Central American states to the United States proposing an Amer ican league of nations has sever, al very encouraging aspects. Perhaps the greatest significance in this proposal), to the United States, at least, is its indication that the suspicion and apprehen uion with .which Latin American countries had in the past regard ed the. United States is on the wane. This furtivenoss, not en tirely without foundation, has for many years stood in the way of complete friendship between the. southerners and the U. S- Its banishment would be the realization of an age-old dream by exponents of a universal Pan-American un-ion. Such a league would yield practical results in promoting commerce between the South American countries on the one hand and both Canada and the United States on the other, to the mutual advantage of each group. By reason of their vastly differing climates, particularly as to the equatorial section of South. America, the northern and southern groups offer great opportunity for exchange of goods. Each, area yifjlds commodities which the other is not capable of producing for itself. The industrial north can never be duplicated in the tropics, nor will the rigorous winters of the north ever permit, for example, the growing of coffee. In many departments of commerce could mutual compromises be made, sb that competition of the south in the markets of the north and vice versa be reduced to a negligible minimum if only friendship the essential basis of all valid international agreements could be unbrokenly maintained. Of course the traditional heritages, racial and temperamental differences that in the past have interceded against such a union will romain an obstacle, but as the southern nations become more stable and the northerners more sympathetic with the problems of the south, un All-Americiin league will become more certain of success. , This is aside from the avowed purpose of the league to guard the Americas from attack without, but it is reasonable to believe that any movement which might promote commercial relations between the parties to a ponce pact will strengthen friendships and therefore abet the union in its major objective. Tlio United Stales should have no hesitancy in joining the proposed league, since in the past it has been so willing to assume responsibility for the integrity of its southern neighbors. H has long been contended by the Latin-American nations that they should have some part in ministering the Monroe doctrine. A league of the Americas would give them the voice they have desired, and would enhance greatly the prospect of rendering all nations of the North and South Am erican continents immune from outside aggression. REGISTER NOW Any voter who fails to register by tomorrow at midnight will be barred from balloting in the primary elections of May 15. To facilitate registrations one or more persons in every community center throughout tlio county have been empowered to register voters. This departure has been done for the convenience of the public, looking toward greater participation by the people in affairs of government While popular fancy is fickle and therefore democracy is prone to error, it U certain that if democracy is to survive it" must be through the political astuteness of the people. Such essential knowledge of government can come only through participation in government by the p?oplc. Participation BY LAURA LOU BROOKMAN CHAPTER XXIX Toby drew back. "But you're mistaken!" she said. "You must think I'm someone else " I'm not mistaken." The man's eyes gleamed dangerously. "You're my Dream Girl- I've been looking everywhere for you and now that I ve found you, you re not going to get away. We're going to be married. Now. This afternoon!" Toby knew now where she had seen him. It waB the man who had followed her that afternoon a few weeks before. She hud slipped into a store and evaded him. But she cotildn not do that now. As though reading her thoughts, the man cutight Iter arm. "Come on! he said. "You re going with me !" Toby ti led to free her arm. This was insane, a nightmare! She was on one ot the busiest streets in New York in the middle of the afternoon. There must bo dozens of people about she looked to the ight mid to the left. There had been dozens of people about a moment before. Now, suddenly, there was no one. But you can't!" she began. Oh, yes, 1 cun- Dream Girl, I love you. Don't you understand?

She forgot everything ex cept that somehow she must get .iway fro mthi smsane man. "No!" he cried. "No!" And then a figure hurled itself between her and the stranger. A voice snapped, "Take your hands ff that girl!" It was Marty llinlt! Tobv hud no time lo wonder where lie had come from. Marty was there, be- ide her. She cried, "Oh, Murtv. make him go awuy! Muko him go!" But the ma ii with tho gleaming eyes refused to move. Instead he said to lliatt menacingly, "Look out!" A hand moved toward his pocket. Hiatt, quicker, shot a fist toward the man's jaw. There was scream, tlio sound of someone tinning and suddenly Toby found herself surrounded by people, staring at her curiously, talking xsitedly. A policeman pushed his way in to the crowd. "Here!" he said. Whafs going on?" Watch out!" Mart Hiatt said. He may hove a gun " The. stranger, however, vas suddenly docile. He rubbed his hin, whimpering, as the rolicc- man searched his pockets.

"Oh," Toby breathed, "I'm glad you're hero, Harriet." "I've been here for five minu-utes," Harriet said, "but it took me this long to get to you." She slipped an arm around the other girl. "What in the world happened, Toby? Who is that tejirible person?" "I don't know." Tears of relief shone in- Toby's eyes. She tried to wipe them away. "I don't know anything about him, except that he must be crazy " It was more than an hour afterward that tho girls heard tho full story. They had been allowed to go nome in a cab when Hiatt and the stranger sot off for tlio poliee station with the officer. Toby tried to tell Harriet what hud happened. "I looked for yotij" she said, "and you weren't in.sight. Then 1 stopped to look at tho store window " "They had some new square-toed pumps ut .Vandenmeycr's," Harriet explained. "1 went in to try them on, and then I came out and ran into Marty. And a good thing, too! We both knew sdme-thing was wrong the minute we saw you. Say Marty certainly socked that fellow, didn't he?" "He certainly did. I don't think 1 was ever gladder to see anyone in my life than wften I saw Mar-ty.4' "He ran ahead of me.

Oh, Harriet, if it hadn't been for Marty!" "Somebody else would have come aloflg," Harriet said confi dently. "I don't suppose the man was really dangerous, but I can certainly understand why you were frightened." Hiatt telephoned and presently dropped in to bring them a re port. The stranger had been identified. He was the same one who, two years before, had followed a motion picture actress about, persisting that she was his fiancee.
