Support Library Drive The annual eunii>aign L'pi' niomber- sliips iii the Blytbeville public library will open Monday. As in the past Die campaign will be quietly conducted but the absence of i'anl'are over the drive docs not lessen its 1 importance. Tlie Blylheville library ha,s uniiliiiil- ly, through tho efforts ui' its board, acquired a large number of books of various types. Obstacles encountered in tlie past have been many and difficullics still beset.efforts to provide the conummity with this service. As usual the library has been closely budgeted and the goal of (lie membership campaign represents the minimum requirements of the library if it is to provide this city with any thing liko the service it should have. • r l'hc" value of u public library is obvious. Kcw indeed arc those- who arc so fortunate as to have in their own homes books to which Ihey have access through a public library. Indeed it is hardly practical for am one to maintain such a library. Yet foi a lelalivc- ly tiny sum the public hluaiv membci- ship helps provide such a s-mitc foi the subscriber and those who .tie lesa fortunate. What Don't We. Know The things we don't, know nbont Ihu - war iii •Europe arc more i ijitcVcsting than the lag-ends of information which the censors have choson to release. For instance, h&w many arc dead in Poland V A French source says the Germans lost 100,000 casualties. German oflieifd figures arc not yet released, Ijnt they are certain to be far below half lhat figure.-How many Poles.died? How many soldiers V Civilians? Women? .Children? \\'c do not know. • What kind of negotiations arc troiiif on behind the scenes? Again, \ve do not know. Have Ihc Urilish promised Italy all ,or Germany up to Munich, all of Yugo-Slavia, and a huge hunk in Africa in an effort to enlist them on their side? We do not know, but we tlo know that Unit was how they drew Uitly to the Allied side in JO!5. These secret deals, by which Kurope was parceled out- iii advance of victory, were unknown to Americans at the time when we entered the World War. It's too bad people can't knmv all about a war while it's going on. But thun maybe there wouldn't be any war. _BLyniBVILLE. (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS FullCirch The first stcnm locomotive to run any U.

It is 11 BlrniiBe coincidence indeed lhat exactly the (irat area in the country to be served by the Iron Horse should he practically the first to be abandoned by him. In .this 'small coal area the cycle of progress and change seems to have come to full circle in 110 years. What will another 110 years have brought? All we can guess is.thai it will create another full circle, and that lire-sent facilities will be then in process of being abandoned, just as yesterday's ure today.

CHAPTER XVHI "jyrAniAN was hurt and angry and, move than that, frightened. She asked herself I'ebel- liously, "Must one go through life born;,' frightened? Fu-st you're afraid of being poov, you. do something about that and tlien you're afraid of losing 1 your job. Then you're afraid of—other things— and linally you arc losing youv husband and it's a different kind of fear, hollow and helpless." They spont the evening as usual, Dan read and played a few games of solilaire. lie wandered restlessly about lhe apartment, and eventually crossed the hall to Dolly's dOOl'. Lying on tho davenport with damp, pungent pads over her eyes, Marian indulged in an orgy of self pity. The old, dog-eared query presented itself to her. What had she clone to deserve this? Behind her lay conscientious effort and • well-placed energy. Through circumstances, circumstances for which Dan was responsible, she had been cheated of a normal, happy life. She had been denied all the things which belong to a woman by right. Protection, easy living, pride in her man, security—most o£ all, security. And now that she had adjusted her life to Hie circumstances, it- was only lo learn that slie had defeated hei- purpose all aloiig the line. The least Dan could do was to show appreciation for her endeavor. The least he could do was lo be loving and sympathetic. She had been horrid the night before, she admitted it. But did not all married couples quarrel on occasion? Hadn't she asked Dan lo forgive her? Hadn't she ignored his childish behavior in stamping out of the apartment? Hadn't she, like a silly fool, asked him to kiss her? And had he done so? No, he had not. For a moment her injured feelings were forgotten in a longing for Dan's kiss. She loved the feel of his mouth on hers, liis kiss had never lost iis thrill for'her. Once she had said, touching his lips with her fingertips, "I Jove your mouth, Dan—nice and hard and lender. I hale men with soft lips." Dan had laughed, holding her close. "Ah-h—so you are a con- I'oisscur of kisses. Are you mak- ir.S a collection, by any chance?" \nt! she, brushing his cheek w>'h her lips, had teased, "t get aivu'id a tittle." was when the chart of their married iife had many higli spots, when even the low ones- held contentment and love. Marian removed the eye pads and went across the hail. Dolly was at the telephone, her eyes bright, a pleased little smile on hoi- lips, Dan did not look up from the evening paper. Marian sat down and idly turned the pages oE a magazine. The magazine reminded her Of the doctor's office and she threw it down. Dolly joined them. "All the happy family," she said, giving Marian an affectionate pat on the shoulder. "Did you say happy?" Marian asked.' Dan said nothing and Dolly changed the subject. "That was Handy on the 'phone. The parly is growing." Randy's parly filled Marian with dislasle. More effort, more wasted energy. "Sounds exciting," she send indifferently. ".He has asked Pefc Thorpe and his new wile." "Oh, really? I'll be glad to'meet her." 'He knew lhat Pete and Dan were Iriencis and he's been want- Ing to show Die bride and groom, a little courlesy because Julie was his secretary before her marriage." "Hm-m—it's a small world," Marian mused. "Has she quit her Job?" "Oh, yes. Randy says she is the domestic type. Anyway, he doesn't employ married women." "He doesn't? Why not?" "Well—he doesn't believe in it." "Is that so?" Her mounting anger crept into Marian's voice. "I didn't llu'nk Randy was like Ihal, narrow-minded and smug, stilt playing with Ihc idea that it's a man's world." Marian seemed lo be forced constantly to defend herself. "Women have a place of then- own," Dolly said gently. "Randy thinks it's a very important place." Marian flounced angrily. "What does he have to say about the women who are dependent upon themselves, and those whose husbands arc not gainfully employed?" This with a baleful glance at Dun who did not appear lo be listening. "Do you really want me to tell you, Marian?" Dolly nskod, "or shall we change the subject?" "Of course I want you to tell me. I hope I'm big enough to see both sides of a question." "Well—he says there wouldn't be married vfomen dependent upon themselves i£ lhe men were allowed to do the earning." "That's absurd." "I don't think so. It sounds very logical. Randy says if all the I women, especially married women, I would drop out of business, thou-'l sands of jobs would bo available! for men. Tlie old men, who have I been shoved out, could run cle- I valors, do the filing and accounting in offices, lots of things like that." Marian laughed scornfully. "The I employers would liko that, A lot I of doddering old men—" Dolly ignored the interruption 1 and continued. "I£ aU the married women's jobs were vacated there would be a shortage of help. Capable men wilh poor position:) would be moved up lo better ones, J They'd make more money, IheiU fathers would be put back on -thv payroll, and the women would bo I provided fpr." "And how," Marian said inelc-1 gantly. "It's an idea, Marian." "And a davn good solution," Dan I pul in. *. * * MAHIAN'S eyes blazed at him. I So he wouldn't kiss her—so 1 he blamed her for his inferiority I complex—weak persons always | found alibis. "You can't make the world 1 over," she argued. "You've got I to, meet it as it i.s and do the best I you can. If I quit my job another I girl would take it. Nothing would | be gained." Dolly shook her head. "There's 1 nolhing personal about the discus-1 sion, honey. What would be right! for be might be entirely wrong! for you. Let's talk about what well are going to wear tomorrow-;! night." Dan said amusedly, "I have afl nifty gray suit. It's left over from'L last year but, with a few new!I accessories, a tic, perhaps a grayjl feather for my hat—I should loolvl pretty nice." Marian worried her lower Dolly laughed. She asked, "Whnt'T will you wear, Marian?" 1 "My new Eisenberg. Tailored'I dresses are smartest in the tall.! I You can -wear them anywhere.'! The fussy things come later—dur-J ing Ihc holidays." Dolly decided on a black suit! and frilly blouse. She frowned jl "My hat is .pretty awful.
