Wreck Weather Coming Summer approaches, Ihe pulse ol' nature quickens, life begins, ;uul sliorlly the country's motorists will ^starl slowing up one another's pulses and ciutiin; their lives. Traffic cops know (.list irood weather breeds bad accidents. The safest time to lake a spin is at the height ol' a rainstorm or tlie lag end of a good thick blixzaul. Most people are more than ordinarily cautious then. When the sun comes out and the roads dry off, everybody does a little relaxing, lets it out, and turns his car into a kind of traveling Tint house. The season, therefore, is ripe for taking stock ... of your own assets and liabilities as a driver, tlie ones that appear to be those of the average driver you encounter, and those of your car as something to entrust, your life to. How lone; it will take to make tho nation's hfgh\vnys as safe as its sidewalks nobody cares lo JJUCSH, but the problems of 'traffic have never commanded such concerted, countrywide study as they 'arc now receiving. National organization. 1 ), community groups, city, county, stale, and federal officials are going after satisfactory solutions from every conceivable angle. Highway improvement, is one idea. The chairman of Connecticut's Highway Safety Commission has recently expressed a hope, as have others, for compulsory car inspection prior lo any transfer of ownership of a swimd-huml automobile. The imposition of driving tests and other examinations oil license applicants is growing. A Chicago traffic court judge has gone to the extent of 1 having tratlic law violators examined by psychiatrists, and induced to take treatments whose purpose is the correction of (he "personality hvists" responsible for their abnormal behavior at Ihe wheel. The greatest movement, and the most effective one, is the safely education campaign' among children and adults. Figures on traffic deaths ;iml injuries in cities all over lite country show startling reductions where such campaigns have been pursued. If present efforts in Ihe direction of highway safely are kepi up with continued interest, a traU'ic death in Ihe future will really be news. This is a Young Republican" year.—Senator Bridges, of New Hampshire. Lobster Visions A research psychologist at Columbia University found thai free lunches turned people who recoiled from surrealist art into positive enthusiasts. There, friends, is something to think about. The report of the discovery disclosed lhal among the artilicmlly-created on- tliusiasts were a number of sailors. If a free lunch will turn a sailor into a lover of surrealist art, what will a free lunch turn a surrealist artist into? What a surrealist artist mighl" do idler a solid year of free lunches nobody can tell, but even if a person could lell, that's one of those thing!-it would be better all around not to say a word about, And yet, there is tliis ray of h»|ie. Maybe it wasn't the fact that the food was free that did the I rick, but some .vperia! character all the lunches had in common. Lobster and champagne cocktails just before retiring, for instance,'will make the simples!, among us dream .surrealist art all night long. Most artists, as everybody kiiQWS, don't have Ihc income ^- .^ ol) H |, w _ maPcnt io'ustcr and champagne diet, so probably the vcbole tiring will clear tip of ils own accord.

CHAPTER VII HICK w;is wailing at the ship's rail when Joyce came aboard. "I tried to see you Ibis morn- ng," he said, '"but Dr. Gray •hased mo off. Joyce, arc you all right?" "Of course 1 am, Dlcli." "You might have caught pneumonia." "Nonsense. The whole thing iccms nothing at all in daylight." "Here, let's sit down a moment." lie led her over to his (leek chair. The whole row of chairs was dc- scrlcd now, with most of the pas- «engcrs just returned from shore or watching for lalu arrivals. "IJolievc me, we won't fry ,iny more Iricks like lhal. 1 was all set lo suggest iinolher happy Iwo- somc in Havana Friday nighl, but 1 don't dare. We'll lag along with the sheep. You'll come with me, Joyce? 1: Her eyes twinkled. "I even dared lo hope you'd ask me." For a moment he regarded her sjicculiitivcly. "I still can't be sure of you. First I thought it was perversity that wouldn't let us gel together—your perversity, if you remember yesterday morning. But aflei- last night, I'm willing to believe lhat it must be destiny . . .' "Don't talk like that! I'll expect an earthquake in Havana— or at least another revolution. 1 lie laughed. "Then/ve'd bettei slick close lo Mrs. Porter. I do believe she cotild manage a revolution." "Undoubtedly. You saw wha happened last night to the firs' two rebels," lie took out a eigavel, lit i slowly and leaned back in hii chair, watching a group of smal fishing boats off shore. In abou live minutes (he Km press woulc be leaving Bermuda for their ncx port of call, Nassau in the 13a hamas. Already the sailors \vcr preparing tor departure, Ihoiigl the companionway had not bcei i.uscd. * * * . gUDDENLY Joyce slraighleiif in her chair. "I wonder what going on," she said, looking astern lie passengers were grouped at 10 rail now, staring intently own at (he water, and there was great shouting and commotion. "Let's see!" Dick jumped to his eet and pulled her out of the lair. Standing at Iho rail, they saw vo small launches drawing up to ic unsteady floating platform ol ic companionway. Tho first was ringing back a happy but un- .ondy Mr. O'Hara, and watching im, o»c wondered how lie would ver bo able lo accomplish Die ckety steps under liis own ower. They were narrow .steps, ilh only a flimsy hand-rail for steady arm lo grasp. In the cconct launch, Mrs. O'Hara sat in rim and arrogant determination, blivious (o the comments «nd 'ie commotion. "Tlml's my bridge partner," oycc pointed out. Dick laughed, "The old ni.iii erlainly wailed lo finish his last ubber." As the first launch drew up lo he platform, Mr. O'Hara stood p confidently and managed to ift an uncertain leg. The fact hat it lifted over (he launch and andcd securely on the platform vas nothing short of a miracle, a seaman steadied him and tarled him on his way up the teps, where another member of he crew came forward to meet im. The first launch backed off, making way for the second. Mrs O'Hara, still imperiously allrac- ive in her immaculate white suit tcppcd over and started up. Her lusband was Hearing the top. Bui the effort proved too much The energy required to climb had Mi-rowed too much power from lis legs and his fool slipped. True a seaman was in front to catch lold, but Mr. O'Hara was a heavy man. Back he went, down the stairway, and the dead weight o. lis body struck his wife with sudden force. On deck passengers gasped as they heart! a splash. They held: their breath in a long moment o suspense. A few minutes later thoroughly soaked Mrs. O'Hnn was escorted to her stateroom. Dick shook his bead, chuckling "Let me give you one bit of ad vice," he offered. "Don't piaj bridge will) her tonight!" Then h went on: "I saw Obacliah this morning. Joyce brightened. "I'm so gla you did, Dick!" she said heartily "I was just thinking ol him. . (ook him seven years to buy th boat." He nodded, thoughtfully. "An seven seconds lo rip the bolton ut of it, because I was hi a hurry get to a dunce." "How did you find him?" "I asked for him on the wharf, no of his friends lold me where e lived. Boy, I fell like a heel hen I went in. the door! You'd link the boat was part of the mily; even the tiniest picka- inny was crying about it." "What will they do now?" Slowly, a little sheepishly, lie cached into )>is pocket and roughl forth a note, handing it 'er for Joyce to read. "Derc Lady ... we thank you i- the new bole and god bless ou . . ." She looked up in quick aston- iiment. "I don't understand, lick—" "I gave Obsidian that hundred- ollar-bill you wouldn't take . . ." "Oh, Dick!" There was a sud- en calch in her voice. So this •as his secret mission! Then, to idc her emotion, she added, risply: "You probably paid a real deal more than thai." He shook his head. "Very little. Obadiah knew a splendid bargain i a second-hand boat, wilh mora peed, so he said, than Ihe olrl Joyce looker! at him steadily. Dick Hamilton," she said sin- crely, "I Ihink you're one of the nosl thoughtful persons I've ever snown." "Nuts!" he said, and his face uddened. He reached across the c h a i r and took her hand. 'Joyce—" His voice was strangely 'ibrant, and something in the blue depths of his eyes sent her blood coursing. "Do you—" \ But he did not finish. Someone '• vas standing before them. They started guiltily. Mrs. Porter regarded Iliem tolerantly, her eyes bright with understanding, a faint curl to her lips. Dick jumped quickly lo his feel. "I've looked all over for you, Richard," she chidcd. "We're ready to start the swimming events for the children, and you'ro one of the judges, you know." He hedged. "Let me out of il, Mrs. Porter," he pleaded. "I'm no judge—" She pretended a shocked bewilderment. "But you promised me. I can't get another jud<*e at Ihis last minute." He sighed, resignedly, too well-, mannered to refuse further. J "Gome along, Joyce?". "No, 1 don't think so, "Dick." There was n look in Mrs. Porter's eye which almost said; , "I dare you lo."
