How far can a democracy go in de- J'ciidiiVg ils'olf against subversive elements without sacrificing the freedom essential to its own nature? That question is going to lie at the bottom of all such efforts. No. s'a'iie person questions the right aiid the duty of every •government to protect ilsulf iigniiTst forcible and irregular overturn.

CHAPTER XVit AFTER Mary said goodby to • £1 Clem and Jack, she went to the office. She was worried about Clem. Clem was loo nice a girl lo crack uj). Something must be done. But when she readied (lie newspaper Ihe only solution she.had arrived ill was to look up Duke Martin and warn him once more that lie could not break Clem. Tlic Gazette was caught in the doldrums of mid-afternoon. An indolent calm hung over the city desk. Crossie was sprawled in his swivel chair, green eye-shade pushed on top of his head, smoking a pipe and gossiping with Mel Anderson, a copy desk man. Mel had large and gentle brown eyes and liked to talk about bees. At (lie rewrite desks, the men, will) tlie hard part ol Ihe day's writing done, had lakcn p/T their Wr- plioucs and were swapping yarns about their favorite subject- belting on (he ponies. Even the financial section, usually Ilic noisiest department in Ilic city room, was quiet. The ticker Had closed at three awl Dan Perkins had. gone out. lie furnished the comic relief for tlie oftire by engaging in long, complicated arguments with Si Marlin, tlie stock exchange reporter, 'i'ho atmosphere ot peace did not extend, however, (o the office of the managing editor. Two paragraphs in Die S'.ar's gossip column bail upset , him. Leaning back in his swivel chair, his long logs stretched beneath the desk, Tom Ladd had prepared for an afternoon's quiet review of the news when his eye fell on Mary Franklin's name in Burl's Klglit Club column. "Looks as if tlie Gazelle's so'c. ed. Mary Franklin, was serious about James Shirley, prexy of the International Blake Co. She's a pal bt Shirley's deb daughter, Clem. There's gold in [hat family." A blind rush of hatred welled up in Ladtl. It was rather, cheap of Mary to act this way. Not to tell him. His mind was seething. She. was.going lo hang on lo her job till she got married. 116 could see it all now. He could have seized Shirley by Ihe throat and strangled him. Then he slopped suddenly. He hardly, knew HIE man, only vaguely remembered what he looked like. Just as suddenly the anger left him. lie became despondent. Why' shouldn't Mary like another man? .'• .•; • L'add picked up the Star again. This time bis eye traveled further down Burl's column. An- oilier paragraph caught his allen- l«n. .He studied it sharply, reached for .his clipping shears, snipped it out, then rang for Pete, the copy boy. "Tell Miss Franklin I want to see her al once." There was grimness in his tone. .... * * * jJAilY had just lifted the top of her desk and was slipping ih c typcwnler into place. Her neighbor, the religious edilor, better known as the Parson, seemed to be ihe only other person actually working. , J "Good afternoon," he said, as she settled In her chair. "Glad to see you. The office is brighter when you're here." The Parson was 'a strange soul with a hazy past. Many stories were lold about him. Some said he'd been a bishop who'd been defrocked. He still wore the white clerical collar find black ministerial dicky, but otherwise his churchly background ,-• did not show. He swore,.constantly, his deep yoice booming with rough cordiality, as it slipped over oallis \Vlieii he spoke to Mary bis large] pink, clean shaven face dissolved into an amiable lump of pully A monkish fringe of, while hair rimmed his bald pink head.

"Who is the girl?" he demanded * » * "IT isn't" news," "said Mary. defi- anlly. She began lo lose her lemper. One moment she found herself loving this man, another moment she,was hating him. ."I'm judge ot what's news around hero," he .shoulcd. "If we're, going lo be bcaleii up by thai puss-puss columnist of the Star, I'll get a reporter who can give mo Ihe siulf. Who is tliu girl?" "Clem Shirley." Her words made him pause. He looked al her sharply. "Pete," lie called. "Get me the clips on Clem Shirley." Warned by Ladd's lone, Ihc copyboy scuttled to the reference room and returned carrying a bulging envelope. The editor, ran nervous fingers through the clips.. "Once tried to," he. read. "Fired from Cormeclic'ut Finishing School. Supposed to be engaged lo Johii Burden.". He, looked up, "And chasing around town with a shoe polish gangster! Arc you'trying lo . protect this Park Avenue tramp?" . , a headstrong kid," . , fumed, turning to answer a'phbne call.

His voice, grew caslic. "If you need help on your job, Miss.Franklin, I'll turn the entire staff over to you." Maddened by . Tom's manner, Mary answered with angry scorn, "I know the story." "Then get it," snapped Ladd. She turned and led. It was the first real bawling out she had ever bad. The tears which she had struggled so hard to restrain, overflowed.
