Well it's being done. More tluin 70 American seagoing vessels luivu been "adopted" by grade school classes in geography. It's an arrangement promoted by Ihc Anieric;ni Merchant Msii'me Women's Association. The thought is (o increase interest in the merchant marine and at the same lime give the .slwly of geography a reality it could not otherwise have. Take the fourth grade at School of Jackson, Mich., for example. Their teacher, i\liss Jessie llnbcr, made (lie arrangements through the women's association. They "adopted" the merchant, ship Exmoor, making special arrangements with the American Kx|iort: Lines to do so. .The ship's officers "wrote letters to the class from foreign ports where the Exmoor called. The foreign slumps were interesting. The story of what American products were delivered at what ports changed 'from a dull listing to a fascinating adventure, because it was "their" sliip. Ports in Spain and Africa 'bertime more than mere dots on a colored map, because the children followed "their" ship. They learned a great deal about geography in simple, concrete lewis. They •learned' eagerly certain matter.; of history connected with those places. They tried with equal eagerness'' to improve ; their own letter-writing ability, so that letters they might write to officers or crew of the Exmoor would bu welcomed. Obviously there are limits beyond • which this particular idea cannot be carried. Ships' officers have lols of things to do beside to write letter.? home to grade school children. And there are only so many ships, anyway. But within tjie limits, what better idea could there lie to vitalize geography, stimulate imagination, implant some basic idea of the m e a n i n g of trade, and in general widen the horizons' of children at an age when the world is just beginning to come into their view? Exchange of letters with students in foreign countries, new plans like this one linking them to the realities of ships and trade, all bid fair to develop broader, more understanding citizens of the future than those of the past. And heaven knows the world needs them! OUT OUR WAY Forty Thousand Every once in ;i while the work accomplished by (ho Civilian Conservation Camps is summed up. Such periodic reports arc an old story by now, and yet us time passes, the sheer figures grow more and more overwhelming, .Six years of work are now behind the 2,!j()0,0()0 young men, war veterans, Indians, anil territorials who have passed through the camps. And today, the United .States has, among others, (hose things which it- did not have before: 1,7.11,000,000 Irces, 10.1,000 miles of truck trails or minor roads, 71,000 miles of telephone lines, -10,000 bridges, .1,700,000 check dams in gullies to reduce soil erosion, 5390 large impounding or diversion dams. "I HIII proud," reports Director l-'cch- nor of the C.'CC, "of the line performance record of these young men." lie should be proud, and so should every one of us. )''or (lie physical results of the work do not stand alone. Many hundreds of tr.oiirtmds of young men today are better men than they might otherwise have been. And that is the greatest accomplishment of all. Plainly Speaking— A. P. Herbert is not only a first-class writing man, but he has a sense of humor and a willingness to get right down and slug in the practical field I'or filings he believes ought to be done. This British vcrsifyer, member of Parliament, and crusader for political reforms, has never broken a lance with a tougher enemy than the one he now challenges. Jle lias taken on the common—all loo common—tendency to use J2 long words when two short ones would do much better. For instance, Herbert cites this: •"lijiigland anticipates that as regards the current emergency, personnel will face up to the issues and exercise appropriately the functions allocated to their respective occupational groups." What, does it mean? Nothing, except what Lord Nelson said much.more situ-* ply, ami much belter, in his' famous battle message: "Knglawl expects every man to do his dtilv." • SO THEY SAY I believe (he citizens should be more mili- tnnl in deluding the 'democratic idea.—Wln- thiop W.

Linda Slorm braced herself against Ihe omkiught ot feeling Hint even his name, spoken by Marcia, could rouse in her. "Don't be filly, Marcia!" she crictl sharply. She hadn't meant to bo sharp. Tlie moment the wurrts were out, she heard tlie shrill note of panic behind them She went on swiftly, "Of course I like your boy frii-nd. 1—I'm just out ot place here. I didn't know when I came that I'd feel like this Bui now I find thai 1 can't forget il—my mind goes right o;i, weighing mid judging against my will.' There was a stillness. Linda tried again. "Kvcry time t sec an airplane or hear that sound of motors, I remember thai they're learnitiR how to wage war. That's sill that's tlie matter. It isn't Jimmy! H isn't!" She slipped her ann around Mareia, tried lo recapture the intimacy (hey had shared as young girls at Miss Lindley's school "Darling, I'm sorry I ever started it. I shouldn't have told you. I should have been polite if il choked me. But you mustn't think it's your boy Iriontl—-that I dislike him—" Her voice was blurring, "I ought to go home." "Go home? Oil, Linda, No!' ; Marcia hugged her fiercely. "It's a free country. Go on, hate the planes and war and even Jimmy all yon want to. But this is my wedding! Remember how \vc used to talk aboul when we'd gel married and be eacli olher's maid n£ honor? You can't go home! 1 need you." "I'm afraid I've spoiled it for you already. What a lunk I am sometimes!" "You're nol a lunk! I respect your opinions, even if I don'l agree with .some of them. What docs anything mailer, anyway, but flic fact that we're friends?" Her voice quivered. "Lots of times we argued about sillier things at Miss Lindley's. It's merely that you've been brought lip one way, and I another. But Linda, I—I never had a sister. And ever since we roomed together, I—I've had you. ..." Linda's heart turned over, and (lie hot blood stung her cheeks. Dear Marcia. So sweet and loving and generous. Giving her trust and whole heart so guilelessly. While all Ihe lime, il was Jimmy Cooper that Linda was afraid of. The planes, loo. But Jimmy more than any bomber ever built. Jimmy's nearness was more terrible at this moment than any bloody news from.across the sea. * * * JF it killed her, Linda Storm resolved, she must not betray Marcia's trust in her. She must try to be cool and casual with .Jimmy. Klie must try to protend lie was only another man in a world full of men. Bui she must not snap at him, she must not be loo cold cither. That was the most difficult parl ot it all. Re- causc if pile was unfriendly, Marcia would be hurt cruelly. But how cmild she be close lo him and r.till hold fast to reason and judgment? "Forgive me. honey," she* managed (o say, humbly. "Let's go down. Bring on your flying field and your airplanes. I'll try lo see them with your eyes." Marcia's grateful smile was reward enough. And yet, going dowi the stairs a moment later, Lind;. rallied herself consciously against Linda skclctl herself for tfn's niccfi'n? i)>i'f/i Jimmy. Then sfic !ooM directly info /us cjcs as lie rose to grccl them, and iinirmurcj, "Good morning."- ~~ the impact ot this meeting with Jimmy Cooper. She girded nil her mental armor. Then she looker! directly at the tall figure who rose from (he sofa fo greet them, and murmured, "Good morning." "Linda dawdled," Jlarr.ia was explaining to him. "Jimmy, are yon very hungry for your breakfast?" "Starved," he said briefly. lie was staring at her. 1 She could feel lis ey-s. She could even sense the moment, when he roused himself and turned to Marcia. At the breakfast table, Mama's mother presided. She was a smart, middle-nged woman in a crisp inorniuff'dress. About her was the invisible aura of position and command which her husband's high laval post had bestowed upon ler. You knew, looking at her, that she was capable and shrewd •is well as gracious. Mrs. King Eaid,. "Your father couldn't wait, of course, Murcia." She turned to Linda. "And how do you like Pensacola?" Marcia cut in haslily, "Oh, she's 'lardly seen it, Mother." "Veil were lucky to get so en-, Ihusiastic a guide as Jimmy, in j that case, Linda my dear. AVe'llj soon have you converted into an ardent flying fan. Jimmy is wrapped up in his work here and believes in it as few other men do. Although, oC course, all of us are partisan . . ." He would he just the kind ot man who would be wrapped up in his work. He was enough like George Cameron for. that. The same steel, Ihe same strength. Jn Jimmy tbo slecl was more finely tempered, the strength more like the strength ot a slender'wire than a concrete wall. •She had often rcflccled that George used the battering ram of slcady grinding, when sometimes Elicsr brilliance might have achieved the E:\IHC end inore ickly. Bui as her father had remarked, George got there. And brilliance "was sometimes undependable. George was always dependable. * * * " {~)UICKLY, she had caught her- v self. She mustn't even compare George with Jimmy. She concentrated on her plnlc; on the food which was tasteless to her. "Queensville," his voice said.' "What's it like?" Marcia was helping herself liberally to toast and jam." "It's a' quiet graveyard, Jimmy, my love. Don'l you remember 1 told you how I stifled out there three summers ago, when you were on the Lexington? You needn't give me that look! Linda knows what 1 think of Queensville. I said enough the whole time f was there. We had a swell time anyway. You ought to meet Linda's father. He always has his nose in a book guaranteed not to be less than 1000 years old. lie talks in parables. Oh, not the Bible! Ancient history! Everything that happens nowadays, il seems, happened the Fame way and for about the same reasons in ancient Home, to hear bim tell ii." "I expect he's right," !\frs. King put in. "Ilislory does repent itself." "But governments seldom learn that lesion," Linda couldn't help saying. "Anyway your .father sounds very learned," Jimmy said. "Daddy is one of the foremost authorities in Latin and ancient history in the country." ['In that case, I wonder whal he thinks of modern Naval officers. College professors usually don'l approve of us." "Oh, Lord!" Marcia whispered. "Here il comes!" Her eyes besought Linda not lo make any breaks. Linda crumbled toast in her fingers and Mrs. King, pouring a second cup of coffee for Jimmy, remarked, "Most professors subscribe to the liolief Hint war ir. barbarous. And il is, of course. Neverllicless, it is Jucky you're already engaged lo another professor, isn't it, Linda? 'So many visiting girls bring home flying rons-in-];iw from PcnsKCob." Lindn's lips were suddenly stiff. A muscle (witched in Jimmy's cheek. Then, against her will, •Linda was looking across (lie table. Looking slraighl into his C3 r es. The blood raced and pounded in her veins as she fell liis eyes asking their d^ep, wordless question and her own eyes answering'. (To I?c Continued) THE FAMILY DOCTOR - •* <** H. B. MtT.
