Her arms akimbo on the low sill of her bedroom window, she stared pensively over the snow covered hills many of those winter nights and wondered about the tomorrows, trying to reason right and wrong. She loved Pete, but she did not love him as he loved her or as she had loved Dix. When the first strangeness of his caresses had worn away, she found she liked the strength of his arms and, if her lips were not responsive to his, thev were not cold. "Next spring," she said, putting off the day when she would no longer be able to decide. Yet there was never a moment that the did not intend to marry him.

Existing production facilities' for primary munitions could be taken over for about J65.00O.000, tho committee's experts estimate. That would cover naval shipbuilding, machine guns and other arms, shells and projectiles, armor plate, and at least one airplane factory. The reports will Include a general survey of the munitions industry and its operations, a report on the costs of munitions manufacture Including shipbuilding; and one on the adequacy or Inadequacy ot existing neutrality legislation. Proposals for nationalization of tho munitions industry will be bit telly fought by munitions makers. the army and navy, and passage ot ,i,a 1. ii r... 11..1 ..!,. iuj Him pin pusu wuic-ii mo committee will present is doubtful, The opposition will claim that nationalization would cripple the country in event of war althoiiRli tills hardly seems true of battle-thlps.

Tests of public sentiment, however, have shown enormous interest in the munitions problem and strong support foi government production. fyillO correspondents' corps here lins been inclined to laugh nt tho Townsend Plan in times past, lmt more recently it lias concluded that the committee investigating tho OARP plan is also good for plenty of laughs. j Poorly prepared, the committee rushed into the investigation under Chairman C. Jasper Bell of Missouri because bo many congress-j here. Pete wanted to marry Linda in the SDrinc. but now the nnsei. in the spring, but now the possi bility seemed more remote than ever. Pete chewed the bitten pipe far into the night, and went to work on another play with far less hope than he had had before. And then Honey Harmon, glittering, glamorous, blondely brilliant star of the cinema, came to one of tho "big" picture houses of Newton. With two maids, a manager and a press agent, a chauffeur, three dogs and six trunks, she swept into town wearing a sable coat, a Paris frock tho like of which Newtown had never seen, and a jeweler's wmdowful of diamond bracelets, to make a "personal appearance." And, more importantly, to sweep the quiet surface of the lives of Linda Bourne and that filled the little Gardiner living room. She basted the turkey, sang Christmas carols, went to church with Mrs. Gardiner, and heard not a word that was spoken. You shouldn t have given me such an expensive gift," she said to Pete when she opened the little white box and saw the gold bracelet with its tiny charms. "1 11 let you in on a secret, Pete answered, loking very proud of himself. "I expect to be rich." 'I'd like you just as well if you weren't," she said sincerely. I shall buy you ermine pillows for your feet to walk upon and stars to hang in your hair," he said, touching her dark hair and telling her no more. The play was finished. Two days before Christmas Pete had put it in an envelope and sent it to New York. To Holbein, the great est producer of them all. And in his desk drawer was Linda's sce nario. Ho was glad now that he hadn't told her he was going to send it to Hollywood. Her disappointment would have been bitter had' she known it was returned. Now it didn't matter, his tri umph would be hers. He would make up for that loss by the sale of his own play. That it would be rejected he did not dream. Pete was no fool, but he knew he had a good play. He knew that Broadway was looking for sophisticated vehicles for the few stars remaining in the east. His was a sophisticated play and he had hopes. Pete toook to whistling at the time the mail came in. He didn't want anyone to know how anxiously he waited for it. And when three weeks had passed, five weeks and then the sixth, he was lulled to a false security. The play was being "considered." Else why should Holbein's office keep it so long; They had considered it, the let ter said, when it finally arrived from Holbein's office. They thought, "It might be good picture material," and suggested that he "try Hollywood." Pete tore up the leter and dropped the play In the bottom drawer of his desk.

He couldn't ask her to take his mother into their home either. Yet he could not support two households. And he couldn't expect Linda to be happy with as little as he had to offer her. She had had a life quite different from his own. ' Gone were the lazy nights for Pete. The clack of his typewriter beat a steady tattoo long into the night after he had left Linda. There was po more than his salary to be made in Newtown, so it must be made elsewhere. The vague plans for a play became typed and re-typed pages, and they grew in proportion to those midnight hours of work. Of this Linda knew nothing, but Linda's nights were not those of tiam routes.

M. 0. Monneen Co., National Advar- Ualnf RepraMntatlves, PARAGON OF VIRTUES If to be a paragon of virtues would make a man great, then perhaps Governor Landon of Kan sas is destined to be a great man. Of course, Frederick Palmer makes no such definite claim in his book, "This Man Landon," buj while telling the reader that Landon is a most human man Palmer steers clear of mentioning any of those most human failings to which Landon must be subject to be as human as Palmer paints him. "The book, supplier! free of charge by its publishers probably to every newspaper office in the country, can be construed as nothing other than a campaign biography although its author halfheartedly infers a denial in its closing lines. It is too timely and too laudatory to bo anything else. While not what one has the right to expect ,of a writer of Palmer's reputationthe book docs leave one much better Informed about the Kansan who stands a good chance of being the republican nominee for president. It gives the impression that whilo many of the moguls of finance and industry have flocked to London's support there may be reason why- old guard republican leaders arc reported seeking to block the Landon boom. Landon's Kansas record would indicate that he might not be entirely tractable. Jt is apparent that Landon has many virtues, of leadership ability and character that entitle him to consideration so much so that the label of "Kansas Coolidge" with which he has been saddled can scarce be called a compliment. A final judgment, however, must come 'front sources less 'partisan, with less flut statement and more factual proof. , ? ,... v- i i i , , MAKE THE MOST OF IT Warning to Linn county residents and other interested In the Santlam highway that Eugene is trying to steal the Santlam pass is sounded by the Gazette-Times. The warning is probably justified, but. It comes too lute to be effective,' even if heeded. In. removing the forest road which connects the McKenzie highway with the San-tiam highway via Clear lake. That roud is already built. No destructive policy looking toward its elimination would now avail, and no such policy could be endorsed even by the most partisan . friends of the Santiam road. So all that is out, and the only tiling for the Santiamlsts to do now is to make the most of the fact that their road hos been recognized as a practical route, while the McKenzie pass is' admitted to be impractical. We cannot hope, nor should we want to deny travelers between Eugene and Bend the privilege of using the Santiam pass and the Clear Lakc-BcJknap springs road. Such use will not greatly detract cither from the North or South Santlam highways, for it is unlikely that much traffic that would otherwise use these two roads will be diverted to Uio McKunxie. Most such travel Vlll be that which would, were II not for the opening Hogg pass, be forced to take the long route via the WapinUia cut-off or the'Cblumbia' highway. In fact the opening of Hogg pass and the Pear Lake road will probably stimulate traffic between Bend and Eugene annually without reducing that between Bend and Albany or Salem. It is unlikely that anyone bound from eastern Oregon for any point north of Eu-geno would choose to travel vie the McKenzie road when the better and shorter North and South Santiam highways are available, at any time of the year. The only possible danger to the Santiam routes would be the influencing of delays In completion of those roads. Now that .both the North and South Santiam roads are so nearly completed, Ht might be a good idea for Salem and Albany, and others interested to get together to oombat such influence, should an attempt be made to excit It.

" but that did not deter Peter Gardiner from crushing Linda Bourne in his tweed-clad arms. Nor from kissing her on her eves and not on her mouth. Nor from hailing an ancient, battered taxi with an air of opulence never seen before at the Newtown station. But, once in the tnxl. thev found nothing to say to each other. it was too Into now to sav any thing, Linda thought, and wondered if this had nil been unexpected.' Had she really thought Pete had asked her this second time in a spirit of fun? And. re membering his face and her ans wer, she knew that she had believed him and answered the wav she had intended. Later she would have time to think more clearly. Hut now perhaps it was just as well. What else had she? No love, no family unci no clear goal in the future. She stole a sidelong look at Pete and liked what she saw. She liked his long legs, the easy carriage of his broad shoulders, the lean look his thin face. She liked thu way he knit his brow when lie was thinking, and now he liked the way his whole face I IQ36 NEA Saivice, Inc. seemed picked out by a light. A light she had made possible. She was unaccountably glad that she had made him happy. She knew what it was to be let down. She would never let Pete down. She was a little afraid to have him speak. If he got lover-like or abject, she wouldn't be able to stand it. During that pause he looked at her sternly. "You have a . dirty face," he said. "And I refuse to give a girl with a dirty face thes nice, clean, white gardenias." Good for Pete. He wouldn't ever disappoint her, she thought. "I'll wash it the minute I gel home and then I'll pin the gardenias on and you may take me to the Villa Rosa for a huge din ner, sue answered. "Okay, lady. This is your day. But later or suppose m stop at my house and break the news to Mother?" "Not tonight ...... U-t's .... let's just keep it to ourselves for a little while." Linda had a curious reluctance to tell Mrs. Gardiner. She didn't believe it vet herself and she must have time to accustom herself to the idea She knew that she had qualms and, for nil her determination to forget the past she could not be rushed into the future. Mrs. Pete Gardiner. Linda . Gardiner. The name sounder strange to her and she shrank from its strangeness-Linda wouldn't let Pete tell anyone, and, when he presed her to name a wedding day, she put him off. They could htfrdlv marry on his salary, she pointed out. She begged for a longer engagement and talked vaguely about t he next spring. Like till girls, she wanted to prepare for the wedding.
