Taxes Divorce ,Thc early years of the Soviet regime sanctioned easy divorce, and so left a trail of broken homes probably without 'parallel. - Now the Soviet has faced in lh c opposite direction and levied a heavy tax on those who would seek to break thoir marital bonds. As a result, says a Moscow .'-dispatch', '-"divorces have fallen oil' 00 per cent since passage of tho new lax statute." Knssia's experience might cause some serious reflection on the- par!, of socinl-mimled Americans who have seen the ease with which divorces could be obtained in states where the laws arc hix.

"Last summer you went fo the Maine" woods," he went on glibly. "Lei's sec — you stayed at one of the Hangeley Lakes. A dude ranch offarr." Ann's lace was positively radiant. "Yes!" she said. "I enjoyed it very much. And thanks for the special allcntion you gave me.- It was very nice ol you to have them meet my train at lhat hour of the morning! But I.didn't think you'd remember me. All these office girls—" The young man flushed, and then he seemed lo single her out from all tho oilier vacationers whose summer trips ho hod planned. "I've been selling you vacations for a long time, haven't I?" he said. He looked a I her. It was a long, searching look, in the course of which their eyes met and held. Suddenly bolh looked away and blushed. Somclhing had happened in lhat moment. Ami realized. Always before when she had come to Ihe Iravel bureau she had been the customer, a girl capable ot paying her way on a vacation. He had been ths man behind tho counter. It was Bill Ware who first realized that this anonymity couldn't endure any longer. He had to know this girl! *• * * AS he talked lie couldn't keep his eyes from her. His glib travel talk became hesitant and confused. Ills praise of this and that vacation resort seemed pathetically weak. He dropped folders. Suddenly he realized that ho. wasn't "selling her." She wasn't receiving his suggestions in a favorable . light. "Bui I went to a mountain resort three summers ago," Ann said. "I like a new place every Perhaps the seashore. Cape Cod." Ann had always small resort hotels picked where the she Sho liked those hotels wh'.rc the easy camaraderie of games prevailed—swimming, tennis, nnd boating. The amiable hoslcss at Ihe lilllc hotels always inlroduced tier to olher vacationers. The girls in the office thought it difficult to meet Ihc right men in the city. Young men who had to slay on their toes all day long to keep their jobs didn't have the time or energy to make satisfactory suitors. On vacations they seemed more susceptible, so Ann and her friends thought. Actually Ann had frequented resort hotels long enough to sense (he frequent dangers in vacation romances. But she liked (o entertain the ideal of romance i« Hie more glamorous spols endowed by nature, it made her dny-dreams more real and eased the tedium of unvarying months in a business ofllcc. Bill Ware's voice fairly glowed with enthusiasm now. "Why, [ should think Lake Rncine would "/'DC been selling you vacations jar a long lime, haven i I?" he said. thought siie would make the most friends. In Ann's adventurous mind tins meant meeting men, for there was n practical bent to her day-dreaming, she Iricd lo avoid Ihe de luxe holels where a stiff decorum would keep her from Sleeting people easily, be Hie very • place! imming, boating, climbing. The Adiron- s arc always cool—" s cinchs m^: mvxua wui— r "But I have spent one vacation at Lake Racine," Ann said pertly. I think I'll go lo the scnshorc." The young clerk took this rebuff-calmly, and went on planning a trip to Lake fiacine for her. He painted a word picture of the cool mountain lake, his voice mount- nf[ lo a crescendo until it seemed that, he was rhapsodizing the rc- .rt. "Why, 1 just sold Lake Racine to Jaime Lnird, the young sportsman whoso pictures you see in the magazines. Not a minute ago^ And lie's been everywhere" t * * I>!LL WARE become so cn- •^ grossed in talking about the charms of Lake Racine that he look up most ol Ann's luncheon hour. When she mentioned the seashore he seemed almost to hate tho idea of waves rolling in on a lonely shore. Sands were always lonely, he thought. For the first lime in Bill Ware's business career he talked a resort down, thereby perpetrating a breach ot ethics. The manager would have said that something was . wrong with Bill. Perhaps he noudcd a vacation himself. "Why, nobody is' going lo the seashore this summer," he went on. " "They have fogs on every coast. It's been raining since the first of June." His plea for the mountain resort' became almost impassioned; he ran a haird nervously through Ins hair. "You shouldn't think of going anywhere but to Lake Racine. Wlvy, this year I can go to any resort in America, with all my „.,„, paid, anil what do you think licked—Lake Racine!" He added, not quite rcnlizint:' his naivete, ".You said lhc first weeks in August, didn't you? Thai's the best time at Lake Ka- cine. That's when : am going to bo there." When he realized that ho had betrayed his real interest in persuading her fo choose Lake Racine, he blushed. Ann was smiiiii" and she thought his quick blush made him more attractive. She glanced at her wrist-watch, and turned lo go. "I have to run to work," si 10 said. He said, "Oh!" and followed her low.-u-d the door. He was dreadfully her. nfr.-iid lest he should lose "1 could come lo your address tonight, and plan your vacation trip!" ho said, his eVes beaming. "I'll bring my satchel along with all Ihe details. About the holels—the works." He looked so genuinely disturbed that Ann couldn't refuse. She handed him her card and hurried on, thinking, "What a strange young man—to come to life after alt these years. Why, he seemed almost human! But i hope he won't try salesmanship on me. t have a mind of my own I'm going lo the seashore.'' (To Be Continued)
