The Labor Department said, however, that It would continue its strike notice unit to bridge the gap until Aug. 1')., when the new Taft-Hartley la'oor law provision on strike notices goes into effect. Two sections of the Hatch A'.\, forbidding political activity by federal employes, also go into the discard under the six months clause. These prohibit th e sending of political . propaganda to members of the armed forces, hut forbid censors to de)cle political arguments from letters. A survey of executive departments and agencies shows these other changes a s of July 1, as « result of war powers termination, expirations of law, or reorcaniM- lioh orders: War—Entry of servicemen's fjift packages up to 550.

By MATEEt HOWE FARNHAM ' xxxm r came late the next year, V' and I was a liltlq bored, with Bill c busy even - m u ie evenings. So .whe'n Flora'wrote me that Anna- bclle actually was coming home on her Jong-delayed visit, 1 de- ,cidod to go home, too, leaving Bill to {ake his meals at the Faculty Club.- It was an easy drive from Ithaca to Otsego, and I got there early enough to run over and haue-tea with Flora before Father got home_ • .Gloria,L_piiise,and Theodora had tea— .little Amy and Sam-Junior were l brought down f or^rijjjjinsp eel i 6n. ! ;^ter the .children had been sent-upstairs I asked about Anna- belte.^-Wns she ns -pretty as ever?

I suppfcse'-shef-seerns as happy as mtfs£iar31s.\I v do*n't know, whcthc she'ESis"pretty is she used to be or not, she's so changed. And her clothes! You .wouldn't believe it, but* Sister, who used 'always to be tyell dressed if she had so much as a length of calico, is now regular frump." • . : , "That's hard to believe," I said. 1 . "J know. Let's go over and sec her. You'll have to believe your own eyes." ; Annabelle was turning into the front yard, on her way home from a walk, and I had time for a good appraisal of her clothes and appearance before she saw us. She wore a severely tailored suit of brown and white herringbone tWeed, stout brown walking shoes and loose, well-worn gloves, a brown knit scarf, and a brown fel hat that shaded her eyes, and sin carried, .a practical slick. I almos laughed out loud. From her rain proof hat, worn a little too fn Kack, to her woolen stockings am tubby hrognns, she was a Boston rande dame. * * *. A NNABELLE was friendly, cordial, but somewhat aloof. This loofness, 1 discovered, extended to er mother and twin sister. I could iot say she. was actually condc- cending to the three of us, but manner certainly smacked of he duchess pullinH the tenantry at •asc. In the present case the len- inlry were far from easy. Wo sal m the edge of our chairs in the ibrary, the old friendly library vherc the four of us, as equals, i<nd had so many good times to- ;cther, and answered the duchess lolite interrogations. Yes, "Mrs. Polliver had had a nice nap. Yes, •Mora's children were all well, foi change. Yes, I enjoyed living Uhnc'a. No, I trouble 'Ending good maids, sinec 1 lived n'a five-room cblln'gc and did ni\ ojvn work. The duchess liflcd an eyebrow ns she took this in. 'Indeed? How interesting." said kindly, as he it were icyond her experience nctually to know anyone without maids. Suddenly the mnnlcl clock gave six whirring strokes. Before could open my mouth to sny must go Annabellc rose majestically. I would forgive 1icr, she new, but she barely had time foi bawth before she changed foi dinner. I must give her Jove tc iny dear father. She hoped to sci much of me. And did we slil have that quaint but clelightfi Negress, Lclly or Lizzy or sonic thing like that, who used to b so devoted to me? One so scldoj found those faithful old servant any more ... I snid that Lc;ih wa still taking care of Father. Annabelle said, "Oh, yes, Leal of course," as if she had entire! forgotten, rmd made a stately ex up the stairs. 0*0 A NNABELLE stayed two week - ti Flora gave a large rcceplio in her honor, Father and I gave nner, nntl other nffnirs followed. Al luncheons mid strictly femi- ine nfternoon parties, we found .it by persistent questioning that nnabcllc's husband was well and cry busy, that she was mistress 12-room, with :i cook, laid, nnd gardener, that her four cpchildren had been something f a handful nt first, but now that ic two oldest were at Groton, she innagcd very well, though she "is nt the moment without the rcnch governess their father in- stcd the Iwo younger boys must avo lo perfect their French. Annnbelle lalkcd about the Boson Symphony Orchestra, which •as attended weekly, and the su- eriorily of Kousscvilsky over nil thcr conductors, including Tos- nnini, nnd about Art with a :irge A. Often she did not bother to talk t all, but .sufferer! our small-town halter nnd gossip with a polite 'ill superior indifference thai nnde us wnnt to spit at her. I had never understood Annn- bcllo very well. 1 undcrslond her ess after her visit. I understood lor even less when Flora told me iome months Inter in confidence lial Annabetle had borrowed ;i housaiul dollars from her mother iiul never paid it back, nllhough she had promised to return it in few months out ol her housekeeping and dress allowances Annnbelle told Mrs. Tolliver that she had spent extravagantly in aying out a new garden, ami she didn't want her husband to find out nbout it. Annabel^ really look thnl thousand dollar.; nnd went abroad. All her mother ever got in return was a few postal cards and a collar of Maltese l ; ..ce. Flora, in a fury wrote Frank Ilartwell about the thousand dollars, demanding that ho repay it. Frank wrote back what seemed a characteristic letter: "Dear Flora —Your mother's claim is just. It shall be pnid. Sincerely yours Frank Hartwcll." But perhaps characteristically, nlso, he never wrote again, nnd he never pnid Mrs. Tolliver her money. We do not know, of course, what Annnbelle told him. _ (To Be Continued) - ~~*\ ' Free Delivery Call PICKARD'S GROCERY Phone 2043 1044 Chickasawha corn. 19*7 ov *':* SEPV.CE. !\r. i. i;.
