A'Cliallenge To Authorities Establishment by laboratory examination of definite traces of rabies in Hie head of a doe ""it l»l live persons 'i'" 1 probably a score of tlot's here in Hie past several days presents a spcoilic challenge lo local authorities. A challenge to act as promptly and effectively as is now possible to prevent Initfic- consequences. Yesterday afternoon, some live days after the pet animal lictfan to attack neighborhood residents in the northeast section of the First Ward, an order was issued from the mayor's office directing police to require owner's of clogs known to have been bitten by the rabid animal to keep them penned /or observation or turn Ihein over to police—to he killed. H is hardly possible that even n detailed and careful check of the course followed by the little dog after its escape Monday from the city pound, where il had bcin\ placed for observation, or before it was caged, will locale all do^s or other animals bitten by the stricken pel. Certainly such animals as were nip- lied by the rabid dog offer a. ha/avd to public health, potentially, at leasl, a most .serious one. That Blylheville has a large number of stray dogs no one can dispute. True, Blylh'eville has a oily ordinance requiring the licensing of dogs and p r o v i d i n g that anti-rabies "shots" must be administered before such ;i license is issued. But only 50'"iloi; licenses have been issued this iijjar. 'Admittedly a dog killing or dog licensing enforcement drive is an unpleasant task. Frequently a policeman, carrying out such a duty, makes a lifelong enemy of the owner of a pet dog. It is only human to avoid enmity if possible. But human life is too valuable to risk for the sake of avoiding unpleasantness. Stray dogs are a very real menace. Pet animals in some ways are even more dangerous because they are regarded in a more friendly light nnd frequently handled and pelted but their-chanees of infection are probably Jess than the animal running at large. Today we are informed that a general drive against unlicensed dogs has been inaugurate*. Whether this will be sufficient we do not know. But the problem is pointedly one for action. The dreaded hydrophobia cannot lie tolerated. Even painful and expensive OUT OUR WAY treatment, to prevent contraction of the deadly disease and mental anxiety over fcar» of the horrible death arc much too dear a price to pay. The public is entitled to Die strictest vigilance. The problem is a real challenge to officialdom. Holiday Reform The people of fJcw Jersey have worked tlicniMolves into ;i considerable, lather over the i.HHiic of shuffling the official holidays around, and you can'I blame them. Passed by the slute assembly was a bill moving every holiday to the nearest Monday. The people in favor ol' bigger and better week-ends were tickled to dealh, but the people who didn'l want to be waving flat's ami shooting oil' lireerackerK .some July morning three days after the of the nation weren't tickled ;it all. \Ylialever you think of the every- holiday-a-i\londay idea, however, there is definitely n need, not merely in Now Jersey lint everywhere, for a few sensible reforms in the whole year-long holiday schedule. Heads of families have been wishing for generations, for instance, that New Year cotdd be placed just a few pay days further removed from Christmas. And lake the matter of wedding anniversaries; lion 1 much easier it wotdd be to remember, men, if all wedding anniversaries could ho scheduled for the same day all over the country. And how about keeping April 1 moving around nil the time so that the kids wouldn't ever know jnsL w'jien to get set? And the <llh of July: never lei it start till after 11. a. ni., say . . .

THAT THE?/ MIGHT HAVE ' CbPfl.t9jaBYllEX5EfiVlce.lHc ClIAPTEH XVII JOHN PAUL SCOTT not only chartered a private plane so Ihol Jackie could fly lo Hoger, but he look Jackie to the airport, saw lo il thai she had every comfort, and even offered, nl Ihe lost moment, to go with her. "Thank you just (he same," she said, "but I wouldn't think of asking you to eo with me. 1 know what an extremely busy man you • ire. I appreciate, oh! much more than 1 ever can toll you, all (hut you have done for me. And I don't mind going alone. Not tlie foist bit. I shall be quite all right, truly I shall." "I expect you will," Mr. Scoll said, lie shook hands gravely. "Young girls do such remarkable things these days. Young men, loo. Take liiat youtig man ofj yours—lie's got a great deal of courage, so much, my dear, Hint, he is bound to pull through. He'll get places—I see that now—without any help from me!" There actually was a twinkle in Mr. Scott's eyes, as he said this; Jackie knew he was recalling the dinner parly when he had offered lo help Roger, :ind Roger's indignant reply lliat lie would not accept charity. Mr. Seolt had soared clear up to the sky again, ill Jackie's estimation. He appreciated Hogcr, nil right. lie had paid n fine compliment lo liis courage. Jackie surprised both herself and Mr. Seoll by turning before she got into the plane, that stood ready to take oil now, to throw him a kiss from her fingertips. "Goodby," she called. "And thank you again. A million limes!" Mr. Seolt so far forgot his dignity as lo run a few steps, bareheaded, hat in hand, beside the. plane—and to throw Jackie a kiss in return. * * * "p'VEN when tlie plane had left the ground, soaring up, up into tlie clouds, Jackie, looking hack, could ECO him standing, waving his hat frantically, until Mr. Scott, and the airporl, and the earth itself finally dropped away. Fear and doubt and anxiety dropped leoin Jackie's heart, as well. They could not exist in such a cle.'in, celesllal world, bathed in pure sublimity. She knew that Roger would live. Ho could not die. As Mr. Scolt had said, Roger's courage was too big—he was bound to pull through. Would he be glad when ho knew Ihat she had llown lo him? Would at the desk said, with a brisk efficient smile, "HI see." She |e< Uie way into the waiting room. I Oh, didn't she know that eacl added minute was an eternity! ' * . * * 'TUHS eternity, too, camo to at •^ end. A sliflly starched nurs'il bore down on Jackie, iudicalini<| wilh 8 nod of her head, tha' Jackie was to follow her. "Wi Hoyer know that she loved him | were expecting you," she said. now, had always loved him? If she had not been such a blind little fool! Oh! she would prove her love, she would make him fee how big it was. She would try lo match his wonderful courage, be worlliy of him. For now, this Jackie who had grown up, knew Ihat she would be content just (o spend all (he rest of her life in loving Roger, belonging to him. She no longer wanted to do something big and important in ilself— Ivor old cry and protest. Just lov- inR Roger would be big enough lo fill all her days. That was all she wanted from life now. * * « r PHE plane was beginning lo nose down; Ihe lovely clouds had drifted away. The green earth with its hills and valleys, its tiny villages and rivers—and there in the distance, puffing along in absurd miniature, a toy tiain—was spread out, Jike a symmetrical map. They were (o land at Kylcrlown. Jackie found that Mr. Scott had wired ahead for a car to be on land to meet the plane and to lake her Uic rest of the way. In a short .vhilc now she would be at Roger's side. Another wire had made reservation for her at the closest liolcl; her baggage could he taken Ihcre, but she would not lose even Ihat much lime, but would go dirccl to the hospital. This last part of Ihe journey was the most tedious. It Deemed to Jackie now Ihat she vas so near her journey's end, it would never really come. The minutes dragged by painful degrees, delaying progress. Anxiety rose in her he.irl once more, so that she was filled with a feverish impa- lienre, her whole self actually trembling perceptibly. - But all journeys must have an ending. This one came nl lasti Jackie went up the slops that led to the hospital, opened the heavy door. At the receptionist's desk she gave her name, asked if she might see Roger as soon as possible. ; ,: ' "If you'll sit down and wait a few minutes/' the young woman i Apparently Mr. Scott had nor overlooked anything.

I'll be ver.v careful, indeed!" Jackie returned^ But when the door was opeuccj' and she caught her first glimpsij. of Roger, lying so quiet and white' in the high narrow bed, his hea< swathed in bandages, his eye: closed, it was not so easy to kecj her word. She wanted to cry"3^'i his name, to run to him, thru-.\ herself on her knees down by h! side. It took all Ihe self control sh could summon lo walk tjuietl/J across that Hide room, lo leai down, to murmur ' his name' r "Roger . . . it's Jackie. I ... I'VE'; come to sec you."
