It was the worst thing' 1 conld'-possrbly-hHve-done' and I deserved the sort of insult I got." .'.,:. "What do you mean, : Linda?" Dix asked with threatening calmness. . ; ;'v "Oh, nothing very' dreadful," she assured hib hastily. If Dix were coldly furious at this point of her story, what would he do when she finally reached the important point? 'I'm waiting for you to continue," he reminded her. Linda sighed. "It was nothing more that time than, that he was tight, intoxicated, ' cjUite drunk and thoroughly dreadful. As soon as I saw his condition I left and caught a ride nothing less back to town and a taxi. I decided then that I would never see him again." ' "That wasn't so very dreadful, you Daoy: . "It wasn't very nice. Anyway, to make a long story short, I did see him again because I wanted you to meet him and because you wanted to. That was the only reason I could allow a person of his kind to come back in my life. "And the only reason I got in that dreadful situation permitting him to drive me out to location was because I Wanted to help you. That would have been all right but now, Dix. now he wants me to marry him! And he is spreading the story about that I spent the night with him and heaven only knows with what implications! "And today When I begged htm to deny them, he inferred that he would not unless I promised to marry him. You've got to do something!" Linda was crying when she finished. She expected Dix .to take her in his arms. 'Be reasonable, Linda," he said at length. "This isn't as serious as it sounds. Thome's all right and this is Hollywood. You can't blame him for wanting to marry you. : ... . ' m "Dix!" Linda was calling him from the depth of her heart. Not Djx speaking so calmly, so callously! It couldn't be. "All vou have to do is have your lawyer send him a brief note. He got in a jam once betore taming too much. After a note like that, you are quite safe." "Dix," Linda's voice was so low he could hardly hear her or know that whatever would be between them in the future must depend on his answer, "you're quite right but what are you going to do about it?" , "I',m not going to do anything, my darling. I can't. I'm in a spot. Thorne is giving me the juvenile, lead in his next picture. You can see my position, can't you?" i "Yes," she answered with dead ly calm. "I can see your posi tion. 1 can see everything about vou.... so clearly. I'm I can t talk anymore. 1 want you lo go now, Dix." Pete Gardiner. Pete Gardiner. His name, his face, the hours of strength and goodness and love he had given her. inai last quar-rel'when he had told her Dix was a weakling, incapable oi caring deeply for her, trading on her helD. her love. Swaying with sobs for a dead love, she remembered all those things and heard tne name that 'her heart called over and over again. She had to see Pete uarainer. Pulling a wrap over her negligee, she telephoned for a taxi. Pete had been Staying at the Beverly Wilshire. Even if he loved an other Woman, she had to see him; counting on his comfort.

Henrv Breckinridce against President Roosevelt in certain state Democratic primaries Is .causing more. puzzlement than excitement or alarm in .Washington. - Other evidence may turn tip laterj but " thus far no one has been able to discover that there's anybody behind It except Colonel Breckinridge, i Neither the Liberty League nor any of the prominent anti-Roosevelt Democrats seem to be linked with the colonel. . - The only possible effect of the colonel's bid for delegates would be to measure the strength of anti-Roosevelt feeling In the Democratic party in a few states or possibly to coll enough votes to build up the psychology that Roosevelt can be licked and encourage formation of such a third party of "walkers" as the Liberty League leadership has been considering, v ' Democratic party leaders are not worried that Breckinridge will receive any vote worth talking about and aren't even taking the precautionary measures they would' consider advisable if a more widely known Democrat had entered against the president. But they're speculating a bit. Breckinridge is a Wail Street lawyer, the friend and Intimate adviser of Col. Charles A.. Lindbergh. . Some time ago Breckinridge sent to Ohio for primary application papers, saying they would be filed in file name of a candidate who hadn't been mentioned yet. The man who filed SK-as Breckinridge, but some politicians have wondered whether he might not originally have had Lindbergh in mind. It is considered more likely, weeks ago," the night clerk told her. She thanked him and went out to a bleak and black night remembering that some one had told her Pete had gone east. .. (To Be Continued) ADMITS ASSAULT, JAILED Joseph Hughes was fined $25 in Justice court here Saturday after he had pleaded guilty to an as sault and battery charge, brought by his father-in-law, Robert Lang-mack, of the Tallman Community.

Mayor Carson recc:ved more votes than his four rival candidates combined, despite a vigorous cam paign by and in behalf of Ralph Clyde, runner-up. So the attitude of the Portland mayor toward the administration's policies and methods did not in any way detract from his policies. This apparently Is a nation-wide situation. Candidates who are en mical to the New Deal now seem to have a good chance of election but this far, at least, President Roosevelt apparently stands above danger. There can be but one explana tion. While the administration's acts are growingly uhpopular, the prbsident himself is still impregna ble. This Is due to the personal ap peal of President Roosevelt. While the wisdom of the administration program may be questioned, the people at this time have hot lost faith in the sincerity of it expon ent, are are still swayed by his geniality and pleasing personality He is the master politician of all time in the United States. As the future looks now, Presl dent Roosevelt will be re-elected president, but, if elected, he may not have behind him during 'his next administration the Unassail able influence with' Congress that has marked his present term. To be a Democrat will not alone suffice for a candidate to gain elec tion to Congress henceforth,, or to any other office. That the president realizes this may be deduced, from his present dealings with congress, in which he has rather turned the Democratic soions loose to shift for themselves and each work out his own salvation, instead of appealing to' the country for New Deal support through ro-electlon of men fa vorable to the administration. He apparently feels that his own position while still safe, could be jeopardized by his too active participation In or Identification with stqtc contest. ..".''! In the light of the present, Re publican hopeS for election of a president will depend 'entirely Up on their ability to bring forth a candidate who can match President Roosevelt's personal appeul.

THIS VOTING BUSINESS The honest citizen who has just, 'lived thrdugh a primary election is upt to feel, pretty blue, if he lets himself sit down and think ubout things. ' For although the primary gives him the chance to , exercise his precious right to . vote, it also shoves him up against h ballot containing Innumerable names which he has never before heard mentioned. ',..'' As he surveys these names, and wonders who on earth is who, and why, Is it likely to dawn on him that his privilege of self-government can be seriously limited by his own lack of knowledge. ,. With the candidates for high office, he does , well enough. He knows wlio is, Tunning for the House, for the Senate, for the goV-erriorthlp; he knows what the candidates' records and promises are and- which ones are most likely to express his own Viewpoint in office.'" "' , '' ": -' But the minor offices ah,' there's the rub. , ' - ' '' The innocent citizen stands in- the booth and gets a ballot slightly smaller than a tablecloth. It con-tains' some tw6'or three' dozen names of 'men who would like to be sent to the national party convention. At the head of the list is the instruction, "Vote for fdur." ' Our voter nibbles his pencil anil . i , i int. i 1, reuus uiu nurnen, ne miHiil tin wen be reading a lint of '. tile royal counsellors of Hammurabi. But Stay! There's .8 . name he has heard before; a'familiur name, as Wel come in 'this arid waste as a clear spring in a desert. Then, he tries to figure out why it is familiar. Is that the rnhn who fOuht for progressive legislation at the last legislative Session or is it tho man who was accused of bribery, and escaped conviction by the skin of his teeth? The voter reflects painfully, decides that the former is the case, and giVet (he Vnan a vote. Then, after he gets outside, he discovers thrft both Identifications Avero wrong. The name had seemed fum-illar because it was similar to 1he name of a Civil War general, about whom he had been reading a few das ago '" That, 'or something approaching it, is the experience of the average citizen on primary election day. Part of this, of course, is due to the average voter's laziness. He could spend the time and effort to find out about the records of his legislators and the men who ore running against them; could but does not. ' But the chief trouble Is the sheer complexity of the average state governmental setup. With tho best will In the world, the Ordinary man cannot familiarize himself with the legislator's records. There are too many of them. It would be a lifetime Job. Genuine representative government In, tho state capitols must await a wholesale reorganization and Simplification of the machinery of government. "' 1 A POLITICAL PARADOX Pdrtland's convincing affirms, tion is subject to numerous Inter probations, one of which is that It helps to substantiate the belief that the national political situation pre sents ft paradox. Mayor Carson, It will be remem bered, recently gained nation-wide attention for his criticism of the New Deal spending policies. Inas mufch as the Portland mayor is a Democrat, the other Democrats, or some of them, were very much outraged, to the extent that they frantically tried to get the Port land press to suppress Mayor Car son's statement. Counting of ballots in the Portland city election revealed that Mayor .Carson has been re-elected by 'a tremendous majority. Of course he probably received a majority of the Republican vote, but inasmuch as that must have been somewhat divided among the other candidates for the office he received also beyond doubt a major- j Kentucky family, and feels that it ' Is now up to him to carry the torch ; of protest against New Dealism i when others fail. I It was a Col. John Breckinridge who became presidential candidate I of a. ticket named by slave-state I bolters from the Democratic con-I vention or 1S60 and who, along with Stephen A. Douglas candi-' date of northern Democrats was I defeated by Abraham Lincoln. . : - -'RAMPT0N HARRIS.

More than Inferentially, ho threatened that the Senate committee would defy the district supreme court if it were enjoined. He had a brief which he never had a chance to file, because, instead of taking the case under consideration, Justice Alfred A. Wheat broke in and gave an injunction against the committee. Judge Wheat was : appointed to the bench by President Hoover and at one time was a special assistant to Attorney Clcncral Harry M. Dauglicrty in the Harding administration. ' The brief had its hot spots; Insisting that there was no conflict of interest between the Slrawn firm and the Western Union, Harris tried to show by a decision of Chief Justice Taney's that the two were "punishable for contempt of court."
