It worked— until every rommcTi'ial publicity ,and promotion nuni in the nation begun io appropriate (ho idea. Then we got a, series of Hig Kcd Apple Days, Eat More Lesjumes \Vueks, and so on, and (lie idea went, pretty stale. But it still has its points, when u really good cause'' is involved; and yon might i>':iy-a little special attention to the week of May 1-8, which has been set aside us Better Parenthood Week. Child Health Day, for a number of years, has. been observed on the lirsl of May. Mother's Day, this year, falls on May 8. To the editor of the I'av- cnls' Jlagaxine tlicre occurred the idea ot" combining the two dnles to stress the whole general subject of belter care for children and better protection for mothers. That Ibis is a subject which badly needs emphasizing' is all too obvious. Parents' Magazine, for instance, points out -that each year — in these civilized United Stales— 150,000 mothers and babies die from causes thai might luiye been prevented if proper tare ifad been available. Those.. figures iiican. lirsl, that we , are shockingly remiss in I he mailer of providing the right sort of attention for women in childbed. The medical skill, dietetic knowledge and pre-iialal guidance which would. reduce our maternity death rate lo a fraction of its present level are available — LlmL is, they are 'in existence. But somehow they don't get to all the women who need them. A tragic annual sacrifice; Ji> the result. Secondly, the figures' mean fiiat a great number of babies who might be saved are lost every year becausu the care that woidd save them is not made available. There, can be no more pill- J'«l toll thafi this. To be ab'le lo we 'babies from death, and yet lo let them .die — no nation which docs that on the scale that we do it can feel anything but the profonndcsl shame. Now these, as it happens, an; not things that will right themselves if we give them plenty ,<>[ time. Mother;; and babies who might live will continue to die, year after year, unless we force ourselves to realize how inexcusable our neglect i», and do :-omc- Ihing about it.

CHAPTER IV JJOGKR'S idea went over beautifully. Evelyn was delighted to Hunk her Jacqueline was cn- i gaged to be marrk'd! "I c!o think, 1 darling, it's too romantic!" she said, ccblalie-ally. Jackie denied (hat (here was anything rom;iutii: abonl it. "Wo simply decided to gel engaged," she said. "So now, Mother, yon tan go ahead iincl nirirry Mr. Scott." Roger ^vas surprised Ihal npxl hiorning when J;iekiu came lo see him take off. "Gosh," he said, taking both her hands in-his, "to think you'd gel up utmost a I ;.un' p just to wist, me happy-landings! Thai was pretty sii'ell of you, Jackie." "U wasn't my idea," Jackie said rfiorlly. She pulled her hands away. Why, Roger was fictinif as though they were engaged! "Mother insisted I ought to se<2 you off. No!, thai f don't wish you 'happy-landings,' Roger," she added. She did wish he hadn't been leaving on such a dangerous indcrlaking. She would be pretty jittci-y inilil he got hack. "Thanks," Roger i- e t u r n c d, rather shorlly, too, "Mighty'nice of you to !»•: so concerned." lie turned to the mechanic, "Make •ont.iet, will you, Jerry? And give licv the gun." "You wiii 'tic cm-etui, won't you, Roger?" Jackie had a peculiar nnply feeling in Ibe pit of her ilomach. Almost as though she were (he one who was- going to do those tcsl dives. "Oh, sure, T'H be careful," Roger said carelessly, lie adjusted his helmet, buckled on the big, :Himsy chute. lie was flying an open job. empty gnawing in Jackie':-; slomacli persisted. She was glad Roger would have (hat rip-cord to rely on. :k & A J^l'lO mechanic liyd (lie ship wiirmcd up now. Ho climbed out .ond. Roger took his place. "Well, SB long!" lie called, raising a hand in salute. Jackie ran up beside him, straining on tiptoe. "Happy landings!" jibe called again. She wanted him lo know this time she meant it. She could nol imagine why she fell so panicky. She dicin't feel any different .toward Roger just because they were pretending to he engaged. "Oh, yes!" She clung onto (he side of the ship. "I forgot—Mother wants you for dinner (ho first night you're back." "For dinner?" Roger leaned over (lie side. Jackie had never noticed before how blue bis eyes were, like the sky on this May morning, lie certainly was not hard lo look at in his pilot's outfit, lie'was enough lo make any girl's pulse quicken. Alaybo that was why Jackie's heart started throbbing so rapidly now. Or maybe it was because his lips—for one brief moment— h;iH been no dose to hers. She jerked herself back sharply. "You'll come, won't you, Roger?" "Sure. I'll be there. With all my medals." tic placed a hand over his heart. "Didn't I promise to stiind by no mutter what happens!" Jackie had to step back now. He was ready to lake off. In a few minulcs he would be only a small dark object high up in Ihc sky, selling smaller and smaller, vanishing completely. She raised her hand in a salute, loo, a gesture of farewell and God-speed. She wished he had chosen different words to say in parting; "no matter what happens" bad an ominous sound. Tlie sort of journey Roger was beaded for might so easily nol huvc Ihul happy landing. She watched Ibal small dark object as long as her eyes could follow il, then turned away. She felt very much alone and forlorn. She told herself, :!!>grily, that she was behaving like a little fool. Roger was n good pilot. They didn't come any heller. He would come back safely—stund by—as he had promised. "EVERT HE I, ESS, Jackie searched Ihc evening papers lo see if (here were any accounts ot crack-lips. She heaved ji sigli of relief, then a sharp exclamation, as her attention focused on an entirely different item. Tlicre, heading tiic society column, was her own name! Her mother was serenely sitting before her U iplc-mirrored dress-, ing table with ' its confusion "OC jars and bottles. "'' '' ; : "Did you see this'.'" Jackie demanded, dashing in oir'h'cr." She held out Ihe paper al arm's length. Her lovely eyes flashed their gold- en fire; her face was flushed. Evelyn finished Ihe perfect cuptd's bow of her mouth. "What is il, diirlingV" She saw the paper; her eyes lighted up, loo. She stretched out a hand, "Why, how very nice! 'The announcement is made/" she, read aloud, '"of Ihc engagement of Miss Jacqueline Dunn, daughter of the romantic actress, Evelyn La Fargc, to Mr. Kogcr Ureckner.' . . . f wasn't at all sure (hey could gel it in m soon," she added with someUuw like triumph. "Do you mean (hat you put in;., in the papers?" If .Jaekic'.s prolfy face had been (lushed before, now it was crimson. "Why, of i-ourse, darling." "But 1 didn't say you could. You didn't even ask me. . . ." "II scarcely seemed necessary. Aflcr all, an announcement always comes from the mother of the bride-to-be. . . ." "IJin' I'm not going lo be a bride!" "Nol going . . . Why, ivy clear child, whatever :irc you saying!" Evelyn got up to put a coo! hand on her daughter's brow, lo forte licr gently to sil down. "Didn't you tell me last night (hat. you and Roger are engaged? Didn't you get up almost before daylight this morning lo go see your fiance off—such a pity that the poor dear boy should have io go a\yay pr.ic- lically on Ihe eve of your betrothal. . . ." "I wish you wouldn't talk tint way!" Jackie said. Her face waj a thunder-cloud now. "Of coiinc, darling. . . . Naturally you're upset because Roger had lo leave, you're terribly worried about him. . . ." "I'm not!" Jackie winced al a denial (hat somehow did not ring true. "You had no right, Mother, io toll the whole world." Jackie had not expected quite such fast developments. But apparently this was only n beginning, "No right'.' Why, darling, of course I shall tell everyone thai my little girl is going to be married!
