Air Mail Service Perhaps we .'ire foo ;ipl to accept improvements in lnuif>i><irtalioii mtd mail delivery an matters of in this age of "sircamlijiinV but, Nidion- nl Air Mail Week should causi; Mume of js to stop and consider air mail services alroiuly available for I'lylliuvillc .ei-fiti though we have no direct air mail pickup here. For instance, wo arc informed l>y j.osta] authorities thai an' uir moil letter mailed by three o'clock in llw iificTiiooi) Jicrc (or placed on the Memphis bound i'Visco passenger train at 3:53 P.M.) will arrive in New York at 5I'M o'clock tho next morning. A' letter sent by air iiiail to Atlanta will arrive at, 11:85 P.M. the day of sending or al 11:50 P.M. nl.Chicago. One addressed to ns far off a.s Denver, Col., will arrive Ijy 0:23 A.M. tomorrow if you mail it by the specified time (his afternoon. Of course it must be delivery the day of arrival, bill a special delivery stamp means miiek delivery after arrival nl tlcslbialjop,. n?> it does for regular mail service. In fact, ivc arc told thai only the extreme terminals of the nation's air mail service may nol be reached by Blylbevilkvs afternoon air mail by noon of the next day. Use of the air mail by Blylhcvillc residents, particularly business men, is growing steadily. , It is not unlikely .thai wiUlin^a few years BlylhcviUe, may have i'{i.i^'"i(u'; mail service with 'development'of a "feeder" system by which the smaller cities and county seat towns may be Jinked with slate capitals and larger cities on the trunk air mail routes. In the meantime, increased use of nir mail service will give notice that Blythevillc is "air mail conscious" and .should be in line for due consideration when further extensions of direct service arc actually contemplated. Enlightenment The voice of indignation in this country over primitive habits o[ thought and primitive conduct in foreign lands suddenly sounds a little hollow. A 60-year-old Indian woman in a small lown in Indiana becomes an object of suspicion to her neighbors, who know what they know about the practices of witchcraft. The pay-oil comets when a delegation descends on the prosecutor's pll'ico with a domiuiil for punishment. Stories of muttered curses', magic brews, and the casting of evil spells arc told. A prosecutor's scorn is no match for this delegation's convictions. A trial for witchcraft is not possible under I he law, so the woman and her husband arc charged with vagrancy, and the community's pwico of mind is restored to some extent when the couple are banished from the lown. The only brigh'l spot in the- story is thai when I he order to leave is given, the woman and her husband both declare that they're tickled'to death to get out. You can't blame them. What (he news commentators in foreign countries may do with this one of tluiy fjet hold of it is something to meditate on. Block llml Chip Finally il appears to have been discovered exactly what's the mutter with everybody. The child is father to Hitman—and whal.ii child! lie's a chip, unfortunately, off the old block. This all .sounds a little circular, but it just had to come out after a glance «l the findings of a New York University professor who made a study of boys in school. '.'One half of New York's students play too hard," hu observed, "and the other half work too hard." Whicl. is exactly what seems to be tin: matter with the grown-ups. Tho boys, Im said, arc "cons'anlly running from one place to another." Not al all an exclusively juvenile Imbif. "Students working on required courses arc noticeably more ncmwi than on chosen subjecls." The case with adults exactly. "The answer to the problem," (be professor concludes, "is i|tiiet relaxation, walking and reading." If only thorp were time. Thero are just so many reciuiral subjects. •Gag ! Drought Tin's is alarming. Pittsburgh is o|)euii! K a bailie on .smoke (o end all battles on smoke.

M llmt KCarchern have fuund "" "'"''"''' "''' CHAPTEll XV ^S long as she lived J/icliio would never forfet Ihot night anil Ihe following day. For during those hours the girl who had been Jacqueline Dunn died and a woman was born, n woman who learned the real mcaninj; of lite, who faced not only life, but death «s well, and the dark despair of what a living death could Lie. Koycr's ship had been Jound, (he beautiful silver plane, it's motor smashed against a lonely mountain side, its left winy crumpled iikc a discarded piece of paper. Bui aside from his helmet and parachute— and a splash of blood here and (here— no single Iraee of Roger could be discovered. II was believed (hat the pilot, though undoubtedly seriously injured, }I;K| managed (o climb out and get free of tho ship, fully realizing the danger of explosion and /ire. The papers played Roger up as Ihc hero \vho rode his ship clown, instead of bailing out. Until the very end lie had tried to save the $25,000 plane. By so doing lie had, in fact, saved his (rial Ilight from ending n iota: failure, for- the barograph, containing tile vital records of the speed and altitude, had remained intact. It revealed that Roger had broken all records for altitude ;md speed and had added another page lo the glory and future of aviation. "As though that mattered," Jackie saici to Mac. As soon as she could gol there, site had driven out to the field again. "As though anything mattered except that they must find Roger." At least he was alive since his body had not been found, trapped in Ihe cockpit. So lliat now hope shone 'like a silver star once more. * * * IT had been almost nightfall when the ship had been dis- covered. The searchers had dili- t'endy increased (heir forces and zeal, hoping to find Roger before niglil settled down. In the thick underbrush of the high range it would not lie easy, al any time, to find a man—or his body. But after darkness had descended the (ask would be doubly difficult. "Tlioy'U find him," Mac assured Jackie. "Maybe not until daylight now"—it was midnight in the little lower and as yet no word had been received--"but lliey're Ijound to find him, Jackie. He could not have gone very far, you know, and even a tier night, Ihey'll send up Hares and Roger will see them, or hear them calling," "If he can answer," Jackie said, lloger bad been alive when the ship had cracked up, but that did not mean he was alive now. Thai last message from him had come through around nine o'clock in tbe inuniiny; 15 hours had elapsed since then. It those blood stains meant he had been badly cut, lie might have bled to deatli by -'M'.y. Or he might have been internally injured. Alliiough it was late May, tho nights were damp and cold in the densely wooded Allcghenies, so that the long exposure, without food or medicine night prove fntal, too. But she would not give up hope Not even after that long night'had finally come to an end, and a dawn broke that was filled with despair, the silver slar of hone almost vanished. 'He can't be dead ... he can't . . ." Jackie repeated over and over to herself all through the 'ollowing day. She must hold on .0 (hat thought so grimly, so faithfully that it would be answered, like a prayer. Jackie could think of Beryl now in pity and sympathy, all hor're- sentment against Ihis oilier wom- in, all her anger and jealousy swept aside. For Beryl iiad lovcil Hoger, (hough Jackie alone had mown that. Jackie, who knew low—too lale—iliat she, too, had oved him. * * * j?OR this was Ihc awakening, Ihe growing into womanhood that came to Jackie during (hose, agonized wailing hours. She knew hat she had loved Roger from the irsl. She bad-tried to ^put up a lefenso, not only against love Iself, but against him. She bad bought that JOVT need not hold -my place in her life. And now she saw, with this sudden, terrible ollow any constitutional disease jut that there is a tendency iu i>eo- tlc who have. leukoplakia lo have overgrowth of the tissues following niUxtion. Several specialists in diseases of *in have expressed (lie opinion bat tile presence in llic mouth of aesiCd. roiiLjii tcelli may be a factor. In this condition tbe specialists •ecosnl/c (hut. (tare arc many cases which cannot bo cured, because the condition lius progressed on fur lo permit suitable treatment. When (here are single small ,|)0ts, it is possible for llic specialist in diseases of Ihe skin to remove the spots or to diminish Uicir extent, and thus lo relieve (o a considerable extent any disturbance to the patient by the disease.

Oil, she was glad now that Mae • had managed to slip in that word or two, and lhat almost the last' words Roger had heard had been —"Jackie sends luck—and love." Perhaps Roger had known, with sudden clarity, too, lhat lhat liacl nut been pretense—lhat he had her love with him. Though it had not brought him much luck—or Ihc fact that eh'; had worn his pin. Jackie knf'lj now she should not have accepter ii. Not in the way she had ii'. anger, in pretense, her heart steeled against him. Oil, if only Roger could be found in lime, so that in some way she could make all this up to him, prove to him how big, how fine her iove could he for him. Prayers sometimes are answered. Jackie's was. Though she was not lo know, even Ihen, in her rejoicing, in her lltnnksgiring and great relief, Dial her prayer —with all its promises—was to be put lo still another lest. * » * POGER was found thf.t day about four o'clock. He had managed at lasl, through a long and painful process, to reach the side of a road and to attract the attention of a passing motorist. He Iiad lain unconscious during most of ilie night, weakened from loss of blood from a severe head wound; chilled and thirsty and Hungry. He had managed to*.->« crawl, halt drag himself thvougll the heavy underbrush, only a lev?/ feet at a lime. He had seen Ihe planes searching for him. circling high over head, heard tho shots and some distant shouts from the ground, but he had been unable to shout back in response. His condition was critical, (he reports said, but there was hope for his recovery. He had been rushed to (he hospital at Phillipsburg. It was only when she read this last that Jackie burst into (ears, a wild fit, of weeping that'was beyond control. She had held hack those, tears so long. She had tried so hard (c be brave, to hold on to that faintly shining star of hope. Now, at last, she could let go, find relief in the ,balm of tears, healing for her,spirit—such joy, such gratitude;'as'she' had never known could exist > within one human heart.
