HEAVY CHOI' IN BENGAL CALCUTTA, Sept. 20. <&)— Crop prospects in the lush green rice Ik-ids of indicate today that there will be no repetition of last year's famine. High prices and fear of a recurrence of the 1!)43 food shortage have caused Bengal's farmers to sow an additional 2.000,000 acres in rice. DOGS HAVE HEARTS, TOO This ia a simple story — that is, if it can be called • story at all. Most short stories end with a surprise or a marriage or something equally final. This story doesn't. It has no ending. I don't know when I heard it but I do know that I shall never forget it—or Shep or Tom Adams. Tom Adams was a pleasant-looking boy. He was neither tall nor short, neither delicate nor massive. He was —well, the sort of lad you visualize when you read about a young American boy leaving a small town for the first time to join the Army. For that was exactly what Tom Adams was and that was exactly what he was doing down at the S.P. station the night this story started. It wasn't easy for Tom to say goodbye to his father or his mother, or Mr. Dawson, the S.P. station agent, or Linda. (Linda was Tom's girl. She had just given him a wallet with her picture in it.) No, that wasn't easy. But what was really tough was saying good-bye to Shep. There is simply no way to make a dog understand. Just before he climbed aboard, Tom kneeled down and buried his face in Shep's thick, shaggy coat and tried to explain to him that he'd come back soon. But as the train pulled out the anxious, inquiring expression was still in Shep's •yes. And try as Mr. Dawson did to hold him back, Shep raced after the train. It wasn't until the next morning that he returned home — covered with burrs and stickers and with two of his paws cut. His eyes were dull... and sadder than you'd think a dog's could be. And they stayed that way as the days piled themselves into three months. Shep never left the house. Seldom left Tom's room for that matter. Finally, he refused to eat. Wanted only to lie near the foot of Tom's bed. The veterinarian said that Shep was actually dying of a broken heart. It was Linda who told Mr. Dawson about it. Mr. Dawson loved Tom just as he loved most of the young fellows in the community. That explains how Shep got his picture on the front page of the town paper I guess. And how the story came to the attention of the city editor of a great Metropolitan Daily. And how it was sent over the press wires into the newspapers of the nation. That explains how Americans in every town in every state in the Union opened their hearts in sympathy and understanding. And how the Army, at the suggestion of the Red Cross, came about granting Tom Adams a special furlough to visit Shep. Shep was lying on an old quilt in Tom's room when Tom opened the door. He looked at Tom through half- closed eyes ... weakly attempted to wag his tail... and was attempting to get up when Tom reached his side. Gently, Tom patted his head, stroked his long fur and talked. There was so much to talk about. And Shep just lay there alongside of him and—well, the only word for it is— smiled. Everything was OK now. And that's the story excepting that the men in Tom's battalion by petition got an approval from the Army to recruit Shep as their mascot. Yes, that's all there is to the story. I don't know where Tom or Shep is today but I know that if they're together—they're both happy. It isn't exactly a story of a railroad at war, but concerning the railroad, it does point out one thing: Railroads aren't just trains and tracks and big depots. They're people. People like Mr. Dawson, the S.P. agent. People who, in the' midst of doing the most tremendous transportation job in history, still have time to be thoughtful, understanding and human. S.P. is proud of its men and women. In spite of all the problems that the war has brought, S.P. people still try their best every day to give the best service they possibly can. 86A Anothtr true sfory of the railroad men and women of America written fey Mark fvckfty •tptclalfy for T Southern Pacific West's Largest Jeweler* • 17 Stores to Servo Youl UKU1LU Sells more DIAMONDS than any firm in the West ^ 1434 Nln*t«*nth StrMt, ••k*r»fl*lil HEADQUARTERS FOR EFI-NEE PAINTS ...i.
