YCIDAT Ii CULQS by HARD JONES KCA CHAPTER XII , In tho days that'. Hollowed, the newspapers were full of the political scandal which had Involved Steve. For months there hod boon rumors of graft in that administration and now the lid was off. Slowly and carefully tho newspapers had been gathering their facts, determined to Hd the town of corruption In the city hall—and now that the barrage had begun they wore sparing nothing. There were columns of testimony, of charges and denials, and there wore countless photographs. To Judith's mind It seemed that the newspapers wore filled with nothing else—and whenever Steve's name was mentioned his name stood out for her as If It had been sot in boldface typo. Since the dinner with Kden Harris sho had heard nothing from the young doctor and more than once she wished for his llght-hoartnd but sensible counsel. But through his friend and lawyer, John arose. Bob kept her posted as to tho progress of the Investigation. lie assured her that Steve's position was clear and that he was being Involved more aw a material witness than anything else. But Judith wondered If Bob could bo lying to save her feelings. She would never forgot the night that she found Bob Bent had not boon lying. Over and over sho had told herself that onoo Btevo Fowler was abnolvcd from blame, It would mean a turning point In her life. During tho we.oks of Steve's trouble she had felt drawn to him more and more. Sho realized now how difficult, how perhaps Impossible, It was for a woman to forget, a man when for four yoars their lives and hopes and dreams have been Inextricably Intorwovon. And on tho night that Stovo telephoned oxelledly, "I've grand news, Judith, and I'm on my way over!" aho thought to herself: We worn never apart at all. I've got to face that. Wo weren't ever apart. Within five minutes after the tele- phono call. Stove burst Into the apartment without knocking, rushed to Judith and took her In his arms. For tc long time neither spoke, but stood clinging to tho other there In tho center of tho room. Then Ju- rtlth drew away gently and said, "Toll tne about It. Stove." "It's just that I'm relieved of any part In tho thing. You can read all about It In the paper tomorrow—" Ho took her In his arms again. "Tho Important thing now Is that we're together, Judith. As far as tho company Is concerned, tho deal Is completed and I get my bonus. And I got a raise, too. We can tnarry any tlrno, darling!" Ilo held her off nt arm's length, his oyes searching her faco happily. "How about tonight?" "Oh, not tonight, Steve!" Judith antly serious. "You see, Judith. You nee how right I was all along? I kept telling you that the thing to do was Walt and that everything would be all right." "Yes," said Judith slowly. "You were right, Steve," He took up his hat, "I'll have to run along, darling, and get some sleep, I'm pretty fagged out after all this tussle, why don't you let mo stop by for you in the morning and we can have breakfast together?" "That would be fun, Stephen." The door shut behind him and Judith stood staring at It, not moving, her hands clenched at her sides. . . . • • » Noon the next day, at the lunch counter In the basement of the build- Ing, Virginia said, "You left early this morning. My guess is that you had breakfast with Steve." "Yes. He came to the apartment lost night, Bob's told you what happened?" Virginia nodded, munching her sandwich noncommttally. But she wondered at Judith Howard's dull voice, the lack of sparkle in her usually bright blue eyes. , Wisely sho gave no oral quality to her curiosity. Judith wondered, too, about herself. And the remainder of the week, seeing Steve often, she wondered more and more. Sho had believed that slowly her strangeness with him would pass; that gradually they would find each other through tho cloud of their quarrel. But If Steve recognized her anxiety, If ho noticed any change, he gave no sign of It. Blithely he talked of their coming marriage, discussed It with tho Bents, mado tentative plans for It. And finally he asked Judith to set tho date. "Tho minute you do, wo can start hunting for a little place. I saw a honey tho other day when I was driving out near the <By O. 0.

Filling her heart with panic and doubt, until she know that she must see Eden Harris. Sho must hear that friendly voice, and see that friendly smile, assuring her that everything was all right—that If 'she had lovijd Steve once sho must love him now. The evening of the day Stevo had made her promise to set the wedding date she telephoned the City Hospital and asked for Doctor Harris. "Doctor Harris has taken a month's leave," the operator said. "Is It possible that Doctor Harris Is resting In town?" Judith held tightly to tho telephone as though It wore a straw and sho wero drowning. "That's possible," tho girl said, her tono tinged with resentment at Judith's Insistence. "But I don't think It's likely. Doctor Harris may transfer to another city. Sorry I can't help you further." » • * There was a faint, metallic sound ns tho operator broke tho connection, Judith stood up; and now, suddenly her lithe body seemed filled with strength and purpose, with beauty and rhythm. In the space of a second sho became an entity once more—became Judith Howard. In less than an hour she was at tho City Hospital, and whon she'd found tho young nurse who had bo- frlonded her on tho night of Francis Jarvls' Injury she lost no time In telling her why sho had come. "T must see Doctor Harris," sho told tho nurse. "And tho girl at tho switchboard won't tell mo where ho Is." Clifton Webb returned triumph' antly from Hollywood with tho last laugh. Ho was lured there a year ago by one of the Big Promises. But, somehow, his artistry did not click.* Ho was not exactly consigned to tho dog house but a lot of executives wero In conference when he came waltzing' In. Whon despair was blackest, tho Theater Guild yoohooed and tho thin dancing man was tendered a starring role for a New York stage engagement—an honor that establishes an actor for life. Lucius Beebe calls Webb tho high gloss of "tho plover egg and Yquem set" in that glittery mosaic of SO' clal marquetry In Button and Beek. man Places. In many ways, Webb Is tho town's outstanding dudo. No other gallant has his flair for .setting off clothes. There is a certain d" to the set of his pleated pants, tils white tie ends, the tails of his ktrtle, and hat tilt. To tailor, hah- erdaah or boot him Is to be "made" ?• and experts vel for the distinction. He lives with his mother, his constant companion everywhere, In a West Fifty-seventh street apartment that is something of a honey in bizarre decor. And perversely here's tho case ot Harlem's sepia darling of the Paris , boulevards, Josephine Baker. Sho failed to reflect her boulevard glory in a return to New York after lonjr absence. Her Winter Garden appearance last season evoked not even a mild huzzah from critics. And her plushy night club adventure later Was a flop. Miss Baker is in high-blown pout over her chilly reception and intends to bundle up her doll rags and, with her waxed-mustached Italian count, sail back to Paree and never darken—no pun Intended—our shores again. Many engagements await over there. Fred Astalre, they are whispering, is not so happy either in his cinema, climb. Like others who make a, fabulous clean-up financially in. tho quick time, he Is bored and longs for tho flesh and blood audiences and smack of hearty applause. Too, ho likes New York and has a special • fondness for London which received him as an Omaha hooter and elevated him to International stardom. Not oven in boom days, has New York been so flower conscious. And flowers and all floral decorations were never so low priced. In a thousand and one building crevicea the tiny shops bloom, aside from such expansive salons as Irene Hayes', Max' Settling's and Thor- ley'a. Women Wear more corsages than ever. Then, too, there are the* floral bracelets, tho coiffure bouquets and others gardenlaed to tho gills. At sun-down, every mldtown corner has a floral seller, a now racket under a padrone, that nets a big sum. ______ Loitering on West Forty-seventh, this evening I was musing over those sharp-faced muggs who have one eye for a policeman and the other on the quick chance. Finally ono sidled up and, out of tho side of his mouth, mumbled: "Scram. Fly* cops." The son of a gun took mo for one of them, for goodness sake!

"I'm going to a placo called Blue Mountain Lodge," She told htm evenly, "fm going there because I want to talk tj) 13den Harris." Stove's face flushed angrily. For a moment ho could find no words. Then: "You're going there because you'rn In lovo with him! Why don't you toll tho truth?" "I don't know thai I'm In lovo with him. All I know for certain Is that I want to seo him, Stephen. That I've got to see him. I'm all mixed up, nnd I've got to see him." "Hut you're not In lovo with me," said Stovo coldly. "You know that for Hiiro, don't you?" Judith bit her Up. "I—I'm afraid thnt's right. .Stephen." Stove Fowler mado a sound of angry dlngust. "I never thought It of you, Judith. This doctor's got you NO you don't know whether you're afoot or horseback. And I'd think you'd have more prldo than to bo running nftor him \vhen—In all probability—he's running away from you!" "Pride!" fn a 'flash Judith's pent-up emotions Ignited. "Pride's im Dimension with you, Stephen. I want to tell you Homothlng. V'rlrto would never keep me fronk lovo. as It did you, Why—why. for a while T even thought that you got Into trouble because of me! Bui 1'vo just begun to realize that it was Just so you could keop your pride along with me. If you couldn't keep your prido along with me—then you didn't want CONDITION VS. THEOKV Edllor Tho Californlan: Tho editorials in your estimable paper havo impressed mo for sonic time as being eminently fair and remarkably free from bias, especially In politics. At least, you appear to bo less biased than is usual in this country. It wa«, therefore, with some amazement that I read your recent editorial entitled "Condition vs. Theory" In which you cast some reflection upon Colonel Frank Knox because ho entertains certain opinions which you happen not to share. This smacks unquestionably of the rankest typo of partisan politics, and Is decidedly unbecoming, as partisan politics always aro. For instance, you denounced Colonel Knox because ho denounced regimentation, Inflation and Fascism. Colonel Knox sees these things In this country and ho utters his disapproval of them. You seem not to see them, therefore you publish your disapproval of Colonel Knox for thinking that they exist. Who Is right? A dozen authorities may bo cited by tho Inquiring citizen to support contentions both pro and con In this—as In other—matters, but still tho question remains unsolved. It depends, of course, upon whore you sit as to how much of tho show you seo. Colonel Knox denounced regimentation; you denounce Colonel Knox; I denounce you; etc., ad In- flnttum. What was that song about tho music proceeding In a moro or less circular route? Further on In your editorial, you state that Colonel Knox denounces all tho policies of Iho present administration. This Is not a fact. I read tho colonel's speech of July 30, wherein he accepted his party's nomination to tho vice-presidency. While I cannot lay my hands on a copy of this speech, so that I may quote tho candidate verbatim, I distinctly recall a paragraph In which he admitted—In so many words—the fact that some (not all, but some) of the now deal measures wero sound and of great value to tho nation. The Republican party IB not opposed unequivocally to all now deal legislation. Tho Republican platform and tho Republican campaign reveal thai fact clearly. Walter Llppmann. writ- Ing for tho Now York Tribune re< oently, stated in effect that in clple all major reforms have had and do have tho support of influential nen In both parlies. Is It condition or theory that tho public debt is tho most monumental n this nation's—or any nation's— nlstory? In it condition or theory that corporation taxes aro all but confiscatory? Your own editorial of last Juno 29 (or 80) pointed out tho Tact that In 1035 the stockholders of the Qoodrich 'Tiro and Rubber Company paid out in taxes three times as much as they themselves received. Quoting directly from the same editorial, you say, further: "The New York Central Railroad Company paid a tax bill in 1935 of $20,619,000. That left the only $116,000 for the stockholders, each of whom, on a parity basis, was assessed $362 by the tax" gatherers." Is that condition or theory? If It Is condition, who is responsible? Colonel Knox? Hoover? Hamilton? The G. O. P.? Is it condition or theory that there were 10,000,000 unemployed in the fall of 1932 and that there are still 10,000,000 unemployed? And what about Possamaquoddy? I do not question your right to favor tho re-election of Mr. Roosevelt. But you havo presented a case against ono of his opponents in iv way that I regard as distinctly unfair. It seems to me that there aro enough good, honest, American issues in this campaign so that ample opportunity for Intelligent and worth-while discussion Is afforded both proxs and public without resort to anything less vital. Why can't we all be honest and admit for once that Mr. Roosevelt has done much good since ho took office, and that ho has also donu some harm? He himself warned UH when ho became president thai ho • didn't expect to bat 1000 per cent during his term. Why try to prove ono extreme or the olher? Tho sooner wo all realize—and admit—• that generally speaking, politicians of ono political faith are no bettor and no worse than politicians of any other political faith, the better off wo will nil be. This goes doublo for newspapers. If you really want tho pure and unadulterated truth In tho little, matter of politics and politicians, read what Irvln S, Cobb had to say about them Monday morning.
