The District. 17 Setllomonl The, prospect of an .early settlement of Drainage District 17's debt problem is encouraging, not because it holds any promise of lax reduction —there is little chance of that—but bctausc. it will'free the lands of the ilisliicl of (he danger > of foreclosure and niilke possible Ih'e ultimate retirement of the debt. The four per cent tax rate, in effect during most of the period of Hie distnAt's receiver.-ihip, will probably have to be maintained. It is burdci;- soine but experience has shown that it can be mot. And conservative calculations indicate that it will retire the dcbl, as reduced by the settlement now in prospect, and at the same time provide funds sufficient for the physical rehabilitation and maintenance of Die district,. \Ve believe settlement of Hie old dcbl on the basis now contemplated is in the best interest of bondholders nji'l laud owners alike. The old debt could never be paid and, as long as it hung over their heads, owners of properly in (he district had little in- ccnlno to make permanent improvements or lo make sacrifices lo avoid tax delinquency. Holders of the bonds got nothing and development of I lie area within I lie district was discouraged. Under the propose;! settlement the" bondholders will recover a very > substantial part of their investment, land o\sners will be freed of unccr- Uuntv as lo whether their lauds aclual- 1\ ,licloug t(i;.tliuiii, and the way will be opeiicd^ot^'iht permanent 'devclop- ni'enl o'f_ I he whole area. >Wc think thai Clifton II.

It is one federal project which has not been the suhjecl of considerable controversy, (ireal and lasting iK'iiolii.s, huth mulenal and moral, have already resulted and iio doubt will continue, to conic from llic work to which llic CCC is devoting its atlotilion; . • The hope of gaining moral betterment iinionu youths was probably l.hi! chief incentive leading to the crealion of the CUC. No stiilistics arc available of course to show what has been accomplished in this respect. Borne inliJii(ff, Jiowevor, m;iy be obHained from what appears to be the logical reasoning of Joseph U. Armstrong, Michigan's slato parole commissioner. Michigan's prison population has do- cliued from 0,000 | n uj;^ l() ^pj,,^.-^; mately 7,000 today and Mr. Armstrong contends that, even though I here has been greater use of the parole, the CCC is the greatest factor « in this encouraging chnnge. As Mr. Armstrong says,'."The ilimg- ^eroiis age for the youth of America 'is (ho span between 17 and 21, and in these camps' they are given rcerea- ' tional facilities'and a more wholesome general environment." The CCC camps i.took many thousands of unemployed •boys and young men out of environments where crime breeds.and gave them good food, health-giving work and recreation, clean, living quarters and new interests and hopes. -For one thing (he CCC has been singularly free from politics, probably because I he army has been largely in control of ils operations. This is another reason for its success and for being cnlillcd lo universal public approval and respect regardless of political partisanship. -i . n vyy.j^ni, . ||«LE«»»| „;;»,, ' r ** S ' JJIHJI.V iiuii <.[.. \llli; I-'OSDICK Ai'lN oul *o drive ILI [lie him 1 1) inounEnlu kunu- I I'll lu-r !>y Jfcvr tci'i'iilrfc uurlr. l.l.llA.V 1'Usmriv.

Tlio shower was over now, and after what seemed aji interminable wait, the dotlpr came, fol- oweil by Dallas. Expertly the doc- :oi-'s gentle fingers moved over Bob's prostrate form to the accompaniment o£ little clucks of mr^lhy. "A bad rap on the head, that's all. Oh, yes, young man, he'll pull through okay. Don't look so downcast." He addressed Pal. "J suppose he fell and hit his head on a boulder or something," the doctor went on. .

They saw the figure lying there, just as Ihyinah had said. Pat ran forward with a little cry. "Dob! H's Bob!" Quickly he turned him over. When lie looked up, Pal's own lace was pale. "He's alive," he said, "but (hat's about all." "The first thing is lo get-him up to Ihe house," Daii Dallas announced in n matter-of-fact tone, "You lake his feet, Magan, anc we'll ease him up the hill." "Bclier go on ahead, Susie, and get (he north bedroom ready foi Mr. Slccle," Claire said. Afler the patient had been made as comfortable as possible and Susie had gone back to the kitchen, Claire dispalchcd Dan Dallas for the doclor from Ihe village. Then siie lold Ha strange happenings at the House of Long Shadows. "The Doc may know something 'bout lOb being down at the town," Hannah suggested. "Anyway it won't do no gcod to let the police come mcssin' inter things, when (here ain't a thing but a cap to show 'cm." "That's why Bob was going down lo find out himself," answered Pat. "Looks as though Ihe opposition was engaged in picking off our men, one by one." • * t « T-TANNA1L snorted and squared " hor shoulders. "Don't forgcl you got me now, Mister. I've looked across a knife at a ragin' • devil of an Injun, and I'm alive lo (ell il. Guess I can do something 'bout this v.'hat-evcr-it-is, village today, Doctor?" "No, not for almost a month iiow." he answered. "Why!" "We were just looking for him, that's all, Doc," replied Pat. 'That's how we happened to discover that Bob'd been hurl." "Well, keep the patient absolutely quiet, and I'll come oul ' morrow (o see how he is." Pat followed the doctor downstairs. After the ancient car had chugged olf down Ihe winding road he walked down toward Dan Dallas' cabin intending to demand tlie gun. UT Pat did not reach the cabin. As he made his way around rom the village, anuali of all the 7> Ihe edge of the aspen grove, he saw something moving up the winding trail on Squaw Mountain. He stopped and watched A man in wj'iitc was plainly visible, weaving his way in and on along the curving loops of the path. For a minute Susie's fan- laslic slory of the white miner rushed back lo Pat's mind. "Apple sauce!" lie said it aloud Then he started oil at a brisk run to follow. Pat had come quite a way. Those trees that had towered above him a few minutes ago now were spindling tops.' He looked across at the Fosdick house, thinking thai Ihe arrow mark in Lyman Fosdick's bedroom certainly pointed in this direction, too. Could it have meant, after all, something as far distant as Squaw Mountain? A gleam of whiie ahead made him bend his shoulders and once more lake up the rocky trail. He began to save his breath and energy, stopping at brief intervals, then trudging on again. Whatever else the man in white might be, he was sure a bang-up mountain climber, Pat decided, after several more loops of the trail, in which he did not scom-ta 1 be gaining on his quarry. .What if, after all; he was following s'ome irn'ge of his own imagination,' inflamed eiliaps by lack o( sleep ar.V nxlety over Bob? He shook the idea from his lind and peered ahead, Yes, tiere was no doubt about a dis- inct while ligure crossing a shale drift at tills very minute. 4*4 AS Pat rounded the curve that **• brought him lo Ihe edge of he shale, he was astonished In ce the man in white vanish. "Well, I'll be—!" Pat hurried across the sliding, sharp particles. At last he was over. Before lim yawned the entrance to nn old mine. Could (his be what the arrow meant? Every claim in this part of the country was duly re- :orded, as lie well knew, so why he myster^ns hokum on Lyman •'osdick's part? The hole explained (lie disap- jearance of the man in while, lowever. Pal determined lo investigate further since he had come this far. The entrance was slid well lim- jered, he discovered, as with (he lid of a box of matches, and later i cigaret lighter, be made his way nlong the damp passage. The walls showed unmistakable sign? of having been excavated for mining pu'po:es, (hough (here didn't seem lo be any cross cuts, as yet. Pat's last match was gone, and ic was afraid the cigaret lighter would give out, lie decided to re- ir.-sc his steps, and slipped the lighter in his pocket. He was ccr- lain he could find his wny back without its help and he inigiit need il— Strong arms seized him from behind, and he found himself in the grip of an aniagpnist as clever as he was muscular. After the first shock of surprise, Pat's fighting Irish blood rushed to his rescue. Twisling sharply, lie managed lo jerk one -arm free and planl a blow lhat crunched tellingly against firm flesh and bone. Again and ngain he struck out in he inky darkness, evading the clutching hands thai gouged at his S-es. Once for a brief second he gripped his opponent's hand in lis own, and his mind automatically noted the fact thai he would know this mnn if he ever met him again, lor the little finger o£ that hand was cut on". Pat realized it was a battle to the death. The blackness and silence added to the horror. He could be killed here without anyone being the wiser.
