Hail Zebras! Hail Chickasaws! ' Among the thousands of visitors here for llie.'Blylheyillc-Piiie Bltill" football game tonight—the "tops" in slide high school football (if not in stale collegiate circles as well)—we extend our greetings, especially to those rabid fans from the home of the Striped Zebras. Well do Blytheyille f;ms remember the,- "long" journey back from Pine Bluff last year after that 7 to G defeat ait-the hands of your Zebras. Well do we remember the strain (you felt it too, of course) for the onlookers, much less the players, of those three tries for point and the over-eagerness to prevent success that provided the opportunity \vhich your team converted into glorious victory. It was a defeat thai couldn't be laughed off naturally. It was llic Big Game. Now BijVJieville's Chickasaws are poised to meet yoiir Zebras again, this time on a Blythevilie field. We hope that when the game is over Ulylhe- ville .will be the winner. And if Blytlic- ville is fortunate enough to beat your Zebras "we don't envy you that "long" trip home. f But regardless of the outcome, tonight's game brings together two schools that have done more to establish Arkansas' reputation as a state that produces first rank foolUnllj players than any other half clo/.en high schools in the state. Your Zebras have been famous outside the state as well as in for years. The fame of our Chick- asaws'has spread rapidly beyond-state boundaries in recent years though Blytheyille has been sending top notch performers to collegiate gridirons for years. The Zebras and the .Chickasaw« rap- resent two of Arkansas' most progressive cities. It is well that'they meet in athletic; competition. No matter what the outcome of tonight's clash is, let the friendly relations of Pine Bhift' and Blylhevillo continue.

"Anyway, I'm sorry." He nodded briefly. Then, "Did >Y»,.tn BUI: wuuiu Kix'p ner you see Dolly this mornin"?

Working on a chart, she mentally laid the first brick in a wall behind which she would keep her .vould never look. The wall was to be made up of such capable endeavor that Mr, Fellows would look upon her us an absolute necessity to the office. She would work for a new understanding with Dan, take more interest in ouiside things, parlies, lectures, picture shows—she'd start tomorrow flight by going to dinner with Dolls- and Randy. There was lo lie no more irritability. A cheerful, happy manner would make hoi- feel cheerful and happy. Some day she would go lo Dr. Moss, she would laugh and say, "You were mistaken." The more she thought, about it, the more certain she became. She relaxed in the belief that the kind fates would clear the muddle if she but let them do it. At 4 o'clock Dan called. "Want something, Marian?" "No-o—I feel badly about last we've been lieadin r.ight—" "I eucss out? He wanted to hurdle th'e lafe unpleasantness and she fell in with him. "Oh, they had a won-derful time," imitating Dolly. "At least from Dolly's standpoint it was mar-velous." Dan's jaw relaxed a bit, "From Randy's, 'ioo, I guess." "Did you see him today?" "Yuah— had lunch with him— he's completely sold — sort of inarticulate—you know how people get." "You don't mean—" She left HID surmise unfinished, ready to laugh. "I think it's (he real thing." "Not really?" "Sure— and I'm glad for both of them. They're two swell people and I'm glad to see them get together." 'Oh, I think you're crossing your bridges before you get to " them. "Time tell. He asked id that he hod hung up the receiver. The click bothered her for a moment, then she turned back to her work. Mr. Fellows came to look .over her shoulder. "Swell," lit jaid enthusiastically. "Those charts will be invaluable as time goes on. You're leaving space for the next 10 years. Yep—that's swell." So everything was all right. Dan would be wailing at .5, Mr. Fellows was pleased, the wall was already amazingly secure. She'd beat the game. It was months before she need think o£ the doctor's verdict ugain. Anything might happen before she need think of that. Above everything else, Dan must not know what the doctor had said. If she told Dan it might be real. Dan's -ignorance, in itself, denied the facts. In a reaction from strain, she grew lighthearted. It was the emotional ?cnduluni on its upward swing. row night at the Mcdinah Club. 1 "Yes, Roily told me. I wish 1 could fix her up 3 litlle, Dan. She's so naive in appearance." "Say, you leave that girl alone. Her personality wasn't made out of plastic wood, it hasn't gone dry and hard—" Marian glanced at him. Yesterday she would have taken exception to that remark, today she let it go. "I'm not talking about her personality, it's her clothes," "Just take my advice and leave Dolly alone," Dan- was saying. He did nol add, "You might spoil her," but the inference was plainly there. Marian mused, "It'd be a joke on us .if Dolly married Randy Means. I'm afraid she wouldn't be cleaning our apartment any more." It was really ^something ot a thought. 'Who would take care of them if Doliy— ? preserved figs.

She look great pains with tho dinner, rushing into the bedroom at the last minute to change to a new, and very fetching, hou<=o coat. H was pink and orchid taffeta, the colors blending to- galher. It had a lovely metal belt and tiny flower buttons. It swished delightfully. It had cost too much —much too much. Even on a half- price sale, it had been definitely beyond Marian's clothes allowance. She felt a trifle annoyed when Dan did not notice the house coat. He always cleared tho fable, rinsing the dishes and stacking them in neat piles- for Dolly to wash in the morning. While he worked, Marian him? around the kitchen. Usually he whistled through his teeth. That evening he was frpwningly silent. "What were you doing in Mr. Turner's office this morning?" Marian asked. He said nothing for a moment, then, "He called me in to ask if I thought he was managing the- business with the greatest possible efficiency." He had his back to her, she could not see his lacs.

He might be looking at .her faco for the first time—or the last. "That we muffed i'.—that we lad such a God-given chance and muffed it." "Do you hale me, Dan?" He nodded gravely.
