"Have they lighlcd the 'fire in the lounge?" t "Yes, Miss Small." ° ""' } "Good," Miss Small said. Eut she walked briskly across the. 'square lobby and checked tor herself. There was only one girl in the lounge, a night worker in a jWcstern Union oIUcc who went oil ,to her job when the other girls came home. Miss Small found this routine confusing. Whdn she went to her own he'd at midnight, after coffee and gossip with Monny, she wanted to Itnow lhat all of her 70 girls were safe and sound in their 70 good, though narrow, cols. Miss Small switched on more lights, approved fhc lire and the bowls of. fresh chrysanthemums, and spoke to the girl who was jhuddlod in a deep chair with her eyes closed. "Good evening, Lillian. Or ihonld it be good morning';" The girl looked up with a long, insolent stare and closed her eyes again. Time for ci litlle Itcavl-lo-henrl talk with this one, Miss Small decided. Mustn't have 'sullvs and surliness, such a bad example for Ihe others. Perhaps a liny note in her mailbox, an invitation to a'nice cup ol lea in my room.

Miss Small watched her cross the lobby with an arrogant silicic .and enler the elevator. I'll win her over, she promised herself, but I. won't say anything to Monny. Poor Monny.

Giirney said that .while, no formal decision lias yet been made, "practically all members of the committee have Indicated Informally to me Hint they'd like lo have some of us get over there during the congressional recess." A proposed Investigation or the American occupation of Germany last year was stymied after Mia State Department, objected it might seriously Impair American prestige in Europe. That Inquiry was sought on the basis o! a report, by George- Mender, former Counsel of the Sen- iU-j War Inveslluntliijr Commute,), alleging misconduct and immorality on tije part of u. S. troops in the' occupied Morse' said the chief purpose of the inquiry from his point of vhw «'oii!d he (o "lift the iron curtal-i of npnlhy" which he said has dropped before the eyes of the American people concerning their re- S|tonsibilitlcs In Europe. "There is danger of n collapse of Em-ope and of a turn to other ideologies which promise the people food and shelter," he said. Morse said l:c''was anxious to look into the progress of the de- nazification program, the food situation, the possible influences of Russian tfifiUrnllon in the American zone and the progress or education for democracy by the American military government. • . e .as a [fall, thin jjirl with poor skin and uiiv. that were f.->intlv hli:.->. . .• I "There's sometliing in my box,! itly, and you didn't give it to in u low key nntl sleadlly rose, tlw: i could i;ii-f me a room with an- silent switchboard came to life other r,ir>.
