Air Mail Service Perhaps we are ioo apt to accept improvements in transportation mid mail delivery MS matters of course in this age of "streamlining" Intl. Ntition- nl Air Mail Week should cause some of js to slop and consider air mail services already available for lllylliuvilla .cvcu though we have no direct air mail pidtnp hero. For iiKstaitce, \vc are iiil'onni.'d by postal 'authorities that an'air mail letter mailed by three o'clock in llus i.tkTiKwn here (or placed on the Memphis bound Frisco passenger train at 3:53 P.M.) will arrive in Now York at 5:44 o'clock the next morning. A' letter sent by air mail to Atlanta will arrive at 11;86 P.M. the day of Bonding or at 11:60 P.M. at Chicago. One addressed to as far off as Denver, Col., will arrive by 9:23 A.M, tomorrow if you mail it by the specified time lliis afternoon. Of course it must bo delivery the day of arrival, but a special delivery slump means quick delivery after arrival at destination,, just us it does for regular mail service. In fact, we'arc-told that only the extreme terminals of the nation's air until service may not be readied by Blytheville's afternoon air mail by noon of the next day. Use of the air mail by Blylhovillc residents, pjuliculiU'I.v business men, in growing steadily. , It is not unlikely that willfjii'-a few years Blyllieville may-have dii's^'ilU'! mail service with development of a "feeder" system by which the smaller cities and county seat towns may bo linked with state capitals and larger cities on the trunk air mail routes. In the meantime, increased use of air mail service will give notice that Blytlieville is "air mail conscious" and .should be in line for due consideration when further extensions of direct service are actually contcmjiiated. Enlightenment The voice of indignation in tjiis conn- try over primitive bnbils of thought and primitive conduct in foreign lands suddenly sounds a little hollow. A GO-year-old Indian woman in a small town in Indiana becomes an object of suspicion to her neighbors, who know what they know about the practices of witchcraft. The pay-oil' comes OUT OUR WAY when a di>lcgalion descends on tho prosecutor's office with « demand for ininislmieiil. Stories of muttered curses, magic brews, and the casting of evil spells are told. A prosecutor's scorn is no match Tor this delegation'* convictions. A trial for witchcraft is not possibly under thu law, .so Uic woman and her husband arc charged with vagrancy, and the community's peace of mind is restored to somo extent when the couple are banished from the town. The only briglil .sjiut in the story is (hill wlioii I he order to leave is given, the woman and her husband both du- claro that they're tickled'to death to get out. You can't blame them. What tin; news commentator's in fordgM countries may do with this one of they j;et hold of it is something to meditatu on. ttlock llml Chip Finally it appears lo have been discovered exactly what's the matter with everybody. Tim child is father to the man—and what a child! He's a chip, unfortunately, oil' the old block. This all sounds a !illl« circular, but it just had to come out after n glance at the findings of a New York University prufe.ssor who inado ;i slwly of IJO.VH in school. '.'One half of New York's .students play loo hard," In; observed, "and the oilier half work too hard." Which is exactly what seems to he the mailer wilh the grown-ups. The boys, he said, are "con^aiilly running from one place to another." Not at all an exclusively juvenile habit. "Students working- on required courses ore noticeably more iicrwjtit; than on chosen sulijcelK." The case with adults exactly. "The answer to the problem," the professor concludes, "is quiet relaxation, walking and rpading." If only there wore time. Tln-rc are just so many required .subjects. Gag Drought This is alarming. Pitlshurgli is opening a battle on smoke to end all battle:; on smoke. And the result, of coursi;, is going to be (he end—eventually—of ; ,|| jokes about smoke over Pittsburgh. Jolicsmitlis: watch it. Whither are we drifting? New York and noise used lo b3 stock joke material, but the Huli-m>ise campaign seems lo have cheeked that .subject off the list. If things keep up like Ibis, (he profes-Kional Clusters some day are going to be left with nothing geographical to joke about. No jokes about: The wind in Chicago. The fog in San Francisco. The emotional chill in Hoston. The altitude in Denver. The blasts of hoi air in Washington. What a situation! By J. K.

For during those hours tho girl who had been Jacqueline Dunn died and a woman was born, a woman who learned the real meaning of life, wlio faced not only life, hut death ns well, ;uul the dark despair of what u living death could be. Roger's ship had been found, the beautiful silver plane, H's mc- tor smashed agninsl a lonely mountain side, its left, wing crumpled like a discarded piece of paper. Bui aside from his hel- mel and parachute—and a splash of blood here and there—no single trace of Roger could be discovered. II WHS believed (hat the pilot, Hiougli undoubtedly seriously injured, had managed lo climb out and get free- of the ship, fully realizing the danger of explosion and fire. The papers played Roger up ns (lie hero who rode his ship down, instead o£ bailing out. Until the very end lie had tried lo save the $25,000 plane. By so doing lie had, ill fact, saved his (rial night from ending a total failure, for the barograph, containing the vitiil records ot the speed and altitude, had remained intact. It revealed that Roger had broken all records for altitude ;»i(! speed and had added another page to the glory and future of aviation. "As though fhat mattered," Jackie said lo JIac. As soon as she could gel there, she had driven onl lo tlie Held again. "As though anything mattered except that Diey must find liogei-." At least lie was alive since his body had not been found, trapped in the cockpit. So thai now hope shone-Jilce a silver slar once, more. * * * JT had been almost nightfall when the ship had been dis- covered. Tlie searchers had .diligently increased their forces and zeal, hoping lo find Roger before night settled down. In lite thick underbrush of Ihe high range it would not be easy, at any lime, lo find a man—or his body. Rut after darkness had descended the task would be doubly difficult. "They'll find him," Mac assured Jackie. "Maybe not unlit daylight now"—it was midnight in (lie lillle lower and as yet no word had been received—"but they're bound lo find him, Jackie. He could nol have gone very far, you know, and even after nlghl, they'll send up Hares and Roger wilt see them, or hear (hem calling." "It he can answer," Jackie said. Iloger had hccn alive when tlie ship had cracked up, but thai did not mean lie was alive now. That last message from him had come through around nine o'clock in Die morning; 15 hours had elapsed since then. If those blood stains meant he had been badly cut, he might have bled to death by now. Or lie niighl have been in- lenially injured. Although it was late May, the nights were damp and cold in the densely wooded Allcghonies, so that the long exposure, wilhoul food or medicine, might prove fatal, too. But she would not give up hope. Not even after that long night had finally come fo an end, and n dawn broke thai was filled with despair, the silver star of hope almost vanished. "He can't be dcncl ... lie can't be . . ." Jackie repeated over and over to herself all through the following day. She must hold on to that thought so grimly, EO faithfully thai it would be answered, like a prayer. Jackie (jould think of Beryl now in pity and sympathy, all her're- sentment agiiinst this oilier woman, all her anger and jealousy swept aside. For Beryl had loved Iloger, though Jackie alone had known that. Jackie, who knew HOW—too late—that she, loo, had loved him. * i * JfOR this was (lie awakening, Ihe growing into womanhood that came to Jackie during those agonized waiting hours. She knew that she had loved Roger from the first. She had.tried to'put up a defense, not only against 'love itself, bul against him. She had thought dial love need not hold any place in her life. And no\v she saw, wilh this sudden, terrible au i j adh clarity, Iliat without it—without Koger, life could hold no incanlug, nothing except emptiness. Oh, she was glad now that Mac f,' had inimaged fo slip in Iliat word ' or tivo, and thai almost (lie lasl' words Roger had heard bad been —"Jackie sends luck—and love.". Perhaps Hogcr had. known, wilhi wdcicii clarity, loo, that that had it lot been pretense—that he liai icr love willi iiim. Though it had not broughl liim}, much luck—or the fact thnl lad worn liis pin. Jackie knr ; low she sliould nol have accept' t. Not in (he way she had UV anger, in prclense, her heart! steeled ugainst him. •[ 0!i, if only liogei' could bo^ 'ouml in lime, so lhat in some way'^ she could make all this up lo him,'. wove to him how I)ig, how fino:'. 'ier love could be for him, ;J Prayers sometinies are an-i swercd. Jackie's was. Though she.l was not to know, even then, In: icr rejoicing, in her thanksgiving, »nd great relief, that her prayer! —wilh all its promises—was to be ;. put to still another test. ; t t t 'ROGER was found thr.t day) nbout four o'clock. He had' managed at last, Ihrough a long' and painful process, lo roach the.-' side of a road and to attract the,^ attention of a passing motorist. He?, had lain unconscious during rnosti of tlie night, weakened from loss* of blood from a severe head!-, wound; chilled, and. ihirslv nnrl>:, hungry. He had managed crawl, half drag himself th tho heavy underbrush, only a tovWf-. 1 feet at a time. He had seen ttiej- planes searching for him, circling"; high over head, heard the sholsf; anrl some distant shouts from tin ground, but he had been unable to} shout back in response. ) His• condilifui was critical, the? reports said, but there was hope) for his recovery. He had been; rushed to (lie hospital at Phillips- j burg. j' It was only when slie read this) last that Jackie burst into tears, aj wild fit of weeping that'was be-j 3'oml control. She had held back) those tears so long. She bad tried)' so hard lo be brave, lo hold oni, lo that faintly shining star off 1 hope. '[ Now, at lasl, she could let go,j' : find relief in the ,balm of lears.Ii healing.for her ; spirit.—such joy,; 1 -: siich gralilude; as'sh'e had never ' known could exist i *within one human heart.
