It' was pnvtly the -sen nir, nnd partly because meals wore tlie only things to look forward lo in EI day of almost total Idleness. Marcel had his art, Basil his piano and his book, Sir Char 3cs his household duties, but Godfrey had only liis memories. Ho took n short nap after luncheon and then went down to the drawing room to see how nearly tea was rcndy. Sir Charles had carried in the tea service and napkins and Sophie had arranged a vase of brilliant annuals on the piano, squeezing il in among the picture frames There was no one in the rooir except Bridget, the maid, who wa^ errfptying ash trays and straightening up. Godfrey paused for a inomcn in .the, doorway to watch her unobserved.--Her flesh was firm ant comely, .her hair still dark am abundant, although he judged sly must be'in her forties. She hat changed--from her heavy cotlon uniform to a long-sleeved blacl one with sheer organdy collar nn> apron. -"Can I help you?" he nskec softly. She looked around, slarllec "Oh, it's yon, Mr. Mansbrklge, sii You did give me a turn!" '"May I help you?" r ' ."Oh, no, sir, thank you. Th : is my job." She begnn pUimpin up the sofa pillows where Soph had squashed them down befor lunch. "And you do your job very \vc' too/' EC:'.l Godfrcy in a tone : ££i i je?.'?'i*= it would have surpris* Marcel, could he have heard ".We* ve b cen in ast corn!or t a b re, considering." He crossed Hie rpot tu stand by her side. "I \c to see a woman working about house. So domestic. And this tie apron—" He touched the gandy bow nt, her back and al- wed his hand to linger there. Vs. vastly becoming, truly il is. ich pretty ruffles!" * * o * BRIDGET, her honest face a deep scarlet, pulled away in con- sion. "Please, Mr. Man^bridgc," ic said in i\ lo'.v voice, "not that twecn the drawing room and the iophic," he .said at .si. . . She drew Godfrey." "Kxeusc me, ma'am," Bridget began, trembling. "Excuse me, sir—" Suddenly she burst into violent weeping and rushed out Sophie, her hands pressed lo her scarlet face. Big Business Blazing Trail To Depression DURHAM, N. C. May 8. (UI>)_ Kinll Hieve, president, o[ Hie Textile Workers Union of America iCIOi. yesterday charged that big business ',ut,s "totally disregarding" thp wi'lfnre of the avcru^c consumer and "blazing tin: trail" toward a depression that "will make 183:t look lik l; 11 picnic." Kleve .said Con<>iTss had become a "handy tool" of business interests whii.'li are "concerned wholly with hinher profit.-!" HP accused Congress of being "so preoccupied w n|, ( | O |ii|; a job on labor" that the government had disregarded housing, extension • of social security and other "vital social legislation." Rieve spoke at the annual convention of tlie American Feder.i- tion of Hosiery Workers, a TWO A affiliate. The union leader said tho signs of depression wp.rc already apparent. The building industry has already collapsed, he declared, and "soft goods" industries, such as textiles, hoisery. shoes, etc., were- beginning to foe! the impact. He blamed the trend on "monopolistic I>H; business" and its "greed" for higher prices and profits. "For instance, the textile Industry increased profits after taxes more than 1.000 per cent during the past decade.'' lie said. "Man- PincMH's profits in IMC were S30.- 000,000. In 19'10 they were $300,000,000." Tf the same ratio were applied lo workers, he said "the average annual wage would be $8.000 instead or S3,ooo." FOR SALE Concrete Culvert Tile Sizes 12 in. to 36 in.
