ITe Can At L'erisi Help Ourselves National Colloii Week,' beginning - May 22, offers the opportunity of thu year for active and eli'celive Suiiriort Of the agricultural product, on.which the residents uT Mississippi county and the Mississippi valley in particular a n tl probably twenty live million Americans in-all depend for nil or part of their income. During National Cotton Week it may be well tor this section, the true cotton bolt, to consider whether it has actually helped itself in every way possible by. • promoting the use of its own , product. The story of what, others have done ' to cotton is tragic; but Ihe story of what the cotton belt lias done to it, and of what it has not clone for it, is both tragic and inexcusable. Those to whom cotton • means most have not bothered • to be loyal iii its use. In Sponsoring National Colloii Week the National Cotton Council anil allied agencies have not asked for sacrifices or inconveniences in behalf of a pub- lie cause. Rather have they asked the people of the cotton bell to invest their money in modern merchandise offering full, returns in style, smartness and serviceability. They ask the logical maintenance ' of an American market for one of America's greatest crops—a crop whose products give to every purchaser a little more than his money's worth. On Student Tours Every year more secondary schools are ; fmding that it is a profitable and• enlightening 'experience' for its older students to make trips to more or less distant points to obtain a lirst hand picture of sections of our country that many of them have only read about before. ' , For inslalice <I8 students of the Deering, Mo. ; senior sind junior classes departed Friday on a 1200-mile trip by bus to the Gulf Coast. Other schools, especially rural schools, , in Arkansas as -well as Missouri and other slates, have found means in increasing numbers to provide for similar tours. Tim cours, under proper and intelligent supervision, provide many a youth, who must later face the realities of life, with a glimpse, at least, of types of country and even people vary• ^ing from his own little community. Thn same applies lo the city student who gets the opportunity to visit rural sec- OUT OUR WAY lions Slid discover that there In A vast section of this great country where life can he lived leisurely and fully if not with all the sensation and haste of urban activity. And, somehow, we suspect that more than one touring student will look upon his own home and his own community in liiis fertile valley with a new found feeling of security and happiness after a bus-window view of oilier sections. SATURDAY, MAY 20, 1989 The Textbooks Lag In this furiously-rushiin; world, lh« student is in n particularly, lough spot. For chnligcs', even in the very maps ho studies, come so I'nsl that textbooks are constantly heing loft .behind, no -.-.nmltcr how up-to-date when bought. Newspapers have always been a valuable adjuiiet to education, but never more so than today. An increasing iiuh- b'er of teachers fire recognizing this. Typical was Die situation recently discussed .by tile Chester, Pa., scMioo! board, when it wax brought out that (ieoffhtjjliy- classes were relying heavily oil limps aii(L current news-reports published by the leading local newspaper, the Times. ' When border lines shift overnight, when changes of governments are effected l>y prociiiuialion aiid in the wink of nri eye, the daily newspaper hits become an Indispensable adjunct of tho classroom. Progressive teachers and schools, aware that newspapers are striving as never before to portray and interpret a changing world, turn lo thorn increasingly for 'the/supplementary maps and information which even the most riicxlcni textbooks can no longer supply.

'J'ltivt there I* n,Hltrlelc nnd (lie receiver cru«Jte* to Ihc floor, CirAI'TE'R IV jVfFAItV'S adventure began when .she stepped but of the telephone booth earlier lhal evening. The Dulie was talking with Wei; llnrl. Glancing casually tov.-a Ihem she crossed to the lounge. "My wrap, Mrs. Meadows," she said to the cloakroom woman. "I'm leaving early." If Jane Meadp\vs called you by name, yo'in- social stock went up. She contributed the right air of respectability. Mary siarcd thoughtfully at her. "Has Miss Janice Frencli been here tonjghl?", "No, Miss 'Franklin," She lowered her voice. "But h'f 'ad to lay 'er down on that couch last evening. She was what you might call passiri' but." "Who took her home? "Mr. Mai-tin 'imself." As .Mary, hurried down the stairs, the Duke tapped Nick on the arm. "Follow her." After the babble of Ihe Dove, the silence o'f tlib street was soothing to Mary. The cluV doorman leaned sleepily against an iron grilling. Opposite was a black roadster which' Mary recognized as thq Duke's own car. Down near Third avenue a policeman stood by an empty shop'window, swinging his night stick. In the soft, half-light of a rain-yeile'd city She prosaic scene was touched with mystery. "The Now York Gazette, and don't slow up because I'm a woman." : She glanced out' the rear win- do\v. Through "the rain she could barely, distinguish the shadowy lines of the black roadster, swinging suddenly.away from the curb. "I've changed rny mind," she cried lo Ihe driver. "Drop me at the Grand Central subway station instead." Throwing two $1 bills at l>ip bewildered mail,, she climbed cult of the cab at the Lexington a 1 entrance, turned abruptly^ the nearest subway,stairs *'-^ halt through one of the underground ;passage^' the long, black roadster had''nosed to a stop iri front of the Lexington avenue entrance. At 40th and Madison avenue, Mary stepped bYeatlilessly into nholher cab. "Forty-five' E. 70lli street," she said to the driver. : * * * T^HE house in front of. which he eventually stopped was an ex- nrt P°Py ot a French chateau ,at Forilainebleaii. It had recently been converted into apartments. Mary pushed a button. beneath a blank door-plate. There \vas\no response. She pressed the button again. There fcgji the sound 6i shuttling feet on i)ardwbod stairs and then .a fumbling at tlie door A woman's voice called out sleepily, "And what do you wish?" "Let me. In," said Mary. "It Is Important." . • Clutching her flannel dressing gown ribbut her as Ihe cb<?l wind struck her fa 9 c; the mal.d. grudgingly opened the doph tjlais bill, it's a curious hour for you to he rounding zc doorbell," she whispered in broken English. "If you want Mecs French she ees not at home." Mary slipped a $5 bill into the maid's hand. "I want to wait for Miss Frcfich." . Suspiciously (hu .girl bpckoKcd Mary in Die hall, closed the door and cilently led the way to a second floor, apartment., "Would you care to wait here, Mademoiselle?" she asked, ushering Mary into a huge living room shrouded In shimiribririg pink taffeta hangings. Mary dropped down to a couch. "I'll sit here." ', ' But when the girl left Mary jumped up to her feet and began looking ' at. photographs on the rriahtcl, studying the titles of the books on the table and searching at.the desk. ' Excitedly she pulled several candid earn'eta shots of a man and woman.f.fom a drawer. "Janjce and Martin," she cried. Some were snapped in a beach cabana, others in where Mary found them. Janice had an exquisitely graceful figure. Her lips were full and sensuous. . Where:\yas she now? The question beat a tattoo on Mary's brain. She moved over to another lamp to study the pictures more clearly. A door banged shut. There was the sound of feet on the stairs. Turning, Mary saw Nick Hart.. Mary took a step toward the phone. He lunged at her. "Before you make that call, give me those ptclures," he spoke brrii- hously, reaching,' as. he ,pushe"d Mary back into th'e chair, for. his hip.pbcket, "arid I don't want to plio rne!" ' Gasping, she'sank down as his fingers clds'ed about her neck. He was strong and powerful. Horror and fear made her weak. .',-.! ': '* .*>'•' AND' then,'came the souhd of a police siren shrieking like a banshce. ( Nick released his hold on Mary, grabbed the photographs from her. limp" hand,' raised his re- vdlvbr as it to strike-her, hesitated as the .\vail';'of the' police siren came nearer, slid the'gun back info his pocket "and silently left the room. A minute latfer 'the door tiiut downstairs. The police siren sounded again. This timo fainter. !t was not coming to E 70|h street. Trcmbiihg, Ulary lifted up the ione. She was in a frenzy, "Whitehall 3-9300," she screamed Jrjto the mouthpiece. "This is Mary Franklin calling from Riiiiielaiider 4-7254. Nick Ifart has jlist l?ft this apartment. Ho tried to kill me. Send the police. ..." She dropped the receiver. Dimly she was aware of a violent clicking in the receiver. "llello, licllb," a man's voice sboulcd. "Arc you 'all right, Mary?" ..Until tjie radio car slopped in front of Number 45 an unearthly Stillness clo.ikcd house and street. Immediately after, a.violent ringing ot doorbells brought tho French maid from the rear and sent her running to the door. "Mon Dieu! Mon Dicu!" she cried jit sight of a plain-clothesman and two policemen. "What ees thees?" t "Wiiere is Miss Franklin?" de- mande'd one ot the men. " 'Ow should I know?" angrily retorted the girl. "I don't even know Mees Franklin." "Sorry, Miss, we'll have to search the house." He stepped into tho hall. "One of you boys watch the front door. The other lake the service entrance." .Before he reached the lop step Mary was in the hall. "I was frightened," she spoke nervously. "I'm Mary Franklin of the Gazette." The detective held out his hand. "Jim Chase of Headquarters. The Commissioner sent us. Mr. Ladd called him. Where's Nick Hart?" Mary shivered. "He left about ten minutes ago." "Cause you any trouble?" "No. He wanted to choke me, but thought better and took the photographs instead." "What photographs?" , "Nice ones of Janice French and ,Martin." "H'rn. By the way, Mr. Ladd asked the Commissioner to bring you to headquarters. He said he didn't ivaht to lose a good society editor." "Have they found Janice French?" 'No." He walked slowly behind \er down .the stairs. "Her father and molher are pretty worried." "You boys stay here "and keep ah . eye. on the house' and the nald," he balled to trie" t*b po- icemen at the door. "Miss Frankin and I will lake a taxi down." "Looks to me like a picture fame now," remarked Mary. "But 'd say it was Janice and not her ^holographs who is being framed." "Tell ; : that Vi to |lhe Commis- c io"ner,"'said .Chase.
