The alleged theft of milk and meat at the State- Hospital was brought out into the open recently during the controversy over '.he appointment of Dr. N. T. Hollis a s hospital sunerintcnden 1 ,. In refusing to npurove Hollis as lieail ot the institution, Oov. Ben LanpJ charged that thefts occurred while • the hospital was under Hollis' management. . •However, in answering the R°v- crnor Hollis charged that lie was instrumental in uncdvcvini! ">'thefts and had turned hi-, information over to Ihe prosecutor. The alleged liquor irrcsiil.mlip^ arose after the Sebastian Countj Sraiid Jury charged that ceruun attorneys in Arkansas were sel »g their ."influence" and 1101 then ••services" in obtaining lin'.ior permits.

INC. — XX.VI ^<f-'^ : -' J T was perhaps ten days at lev , Amy's and Nelson's houscwarm- ing that I happened one morning to look out of a south window and saw Annabellc Tolliver run clown ;the, steps and join Father on his !walk downtown. I thought nothing of it until the second or third clay : when I saw (he same thing repeal- led. The following mornings I I watched openly. There was no idoubt about it; Annabcllc was Baking a poinl of sharing Father's imorning walk lo the oflice. On rainy days Father picked her up • in his car. .. It was a small thing, nothing to 'feet excited about, I lold myself. [Father liked companionship, li^cd i to talk, liked, alas, to be nattered. iThen I remembered how Father ;had flared up and defended Arrna- 1 belle the night after Amy's party. | Oh, Lord, did I have lo go ihroiiKh •Remembering Bob Finiieran, I cried and cried. When Ihe p:ir;Klc vv;is over, father took inu ti> the Plazn and bought me a KCUU lunch. 11 \vas all I could do to cat il. . - •'••• "••••=• Two clays later I had a sligh headache and v.'cnt to bed eiirb Father came in about 9 o cloel and sat on my bed. "Can you keep a secret';" Fathc asked. •• •--.•-•-. ••>••-" I said he knew I could. "Bui this is a very special sc crel," Father persisted. "I'd le:i\ town if it got out. I'm really swine even to tell you. 1 think won't." - • -' I had to coax and coax. Finally Father said: "I that again? H The weeks passed slowly. Prcs- Sident Wilson went to Paris with 'his lady, cainc home, went back. The peace conference dragged on. i Nothing much happened in Otsego i except that everyone was now ; talking about Father and Aiina- ; belle and watching me to sec how U was taking this latest dcvclop- imeni. In late February, Flora had her third baby. It was another girl and Flora named it Amy after fier mother and sister. Annabclle continued to walk downtown daily with Father, but rather never mentioned her, never suggested that I invite her lo the house. When we met her ai greatly honored last evening. 1 not a young man and not rich a no channel-, heaven knows, but 1 lieve it or not, my hand aclua was asked in marriage." ;"*.<:-,V: "Nol . . ." '• ''^- '• "We'll mention no names. B\ thought you'd like to know, declined the honor as gently and decently as I couUl.".. , . .,_;<.,/-yj "Why?" ••.••-.... -• "Because the lady in question and you don't get along. I've been fond of you a good many years. At my time of life a man needs his children and grandchildren. No outsider, no matter how glamorous, can take a child's place." It's always been liar-el for me lo show emotion. 1 caught Father's hand and kissed it and tried lo tell him brokenly what a wonderful' father lie had been lo me. He said all the right things, and I was very happy. e . the other houses, Father, if anything, avoided her. And yet he I , smiled at her across the room. I was not very happy. ™ , TTMNATA.Y I asked: "What did you -*- say to Ann ... to the lady who proposed lo you?" "Oh, something along the lines of what I've jusl said to you. 1 had to think ciiiick. It wasn't easy, believe me." <_j I "Was she . . . terribly hurl and disappointed?" "I don't think so. There wasn I • love's young dream lo Etineicn, ' icinbcr.

Dot her eyes when she said goodby still haunt me. The girl's desperately unhappy. I feel like a heel. "Do yon think you could have made her happy by marrying her?" 1 asked. "I doubt il—not for long, certainly. It would have given her a certain joyous satisfaction lo hit out at Am.v^ hit out at you, at the town. Hnl I imagine in a few mouths. ..." lie broke off and then said we'd heller nol talk about it any more, lhal il had been a trying and vimilca^mt experience, thai ho'd prefer lo forget it, and he kissed me good night. 1 said: "There's always something doing in the Ti-llivcr family! 1 wonder what il will he ncxl."
