"I would have told yon earlier—but after all, we were introduced." "And you really remembered mc —I mean, you remembered my writing you (hat silly letter? How could you? You must hear from so many people—" "My fan mail isn't so heavy as all thai," Colin said rather dryly. They drove for a long while through the quiet night. Finally Ann said, "I'd.better go home. It's very late." She gave him brief directions on hew lo reach her liousy, and settled back in the corner of the seat. A sidcwisc glance | told Colin that her eyes were steadily on his profile, and he wished briefly that it were n more classic one. Presently Ann said, This is Jt," and Cdlin swung the car into the driveway, and they stopped in front of a big house, lalf, screened from the road by .rees—a gracious, rather old house, inviting in the silvery moonlight. Ann opened a side door with ner latchkey, and they entered a big, softly lighted room. She touched a match to the flre aid ready in the fireplace, took off her jacket, and sank down in a big chair. "Please sit down," she said. "I'm suddenly a little in awe of you-yand 1 haven't the faintest idea what I can talk to you about." Colin sat down nnd smiled a little. -You were doing all right. Do I look so very formidable?" he inquired. "I'm just remembering, willi awful clarity, that you're my favorite author, and I have a responsibility for entertaining you— and I'm neither bright nor beautiful, and you'll probably be very bored.'!

"Move having Conni* and Davey and Betsey with us, at course—but it can't be much flux for them," Ann said reneciiyvly. "Hou- old are you, Ann?" Colin asked abruptly, offering up 'a silent prayer that she wasn't'ao young as he feared. "Twcnty-three.'t Fifteen years. He wondered-if she classed him with her father. So he asked her, "Do you. know how old 1 am?" 'I so it She regarded him gravely, don't know.: You can't be <*, awfully youn«—you've been famous for too ni»rry yews to be very young.'

Next time wo meet, I promise not lo dissolve in tears." "I'll never make you cry," he said, quite seriously. When Colin had gone, Arm lingered in the library long enough to smoke a final cigaret.

March 8 '(NBA) —What' this government' riepds more than anything else'hr another 1 national holiday. It should -'tie' called, "National clean Out tHe Piles Day." ' The. Jolly, admission by the usually humorless State Department that a Russian request for a billion-dollar loan had just been discovered in the turned-over files of Big Businessman Lip; Crowley's old Foreign' Economic Administration is what suggests the need for this new holiday. This Russian letter had been received 9nly last August. It was never lost, of course. .It. was just in the files—that's where -it was —and they would have known exactly where they could have put their hands on it If they had only known it was there. That's the way it was, you'll recall, with the Yalta side-agreement which Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin marie about turning over the Kurlle, Islands to Russia ' free. . After discovery of that paper. President Truman was asked at a press conference if there were any other sec'ret -agreenmts that were lost In the files, lie said this Yalta agreement hadn't been lost It was In the files "all the time. He covered himself/ though, by saying that if there were any others, not yet announced, they'd be made public at the proper time.' The proper lime 'is when you discover 'em. . •VMMTCH F*rhaax Laid. The Ham Resident Roosevelt apparently planned it that way. He told one time about an idta he had for postwar use of the Pentagon building as a. storage plaice'for government recordc. As usual, he was probably thinking way ahead of the country, planing where elae besides Hyde Park he could hide all the secret agreements he was going to make —«onsiisring where they, could best be lost.

P. D. R. said he once went thronh a big file-room in some government agency. Teh bureau clitcf told him the file was live, but in iho tirst cabinet Roosevelt opened, he found a tile on something like the JHe expectancy of wild burros in the Grand Canyon.

Just put it in a file where it won't be lost. It won't be found, either, but what's the difference?
