Code of Valor Linda Brave Fighting Men- Annies change from age lo age ami the generals ave ::!'. different, but the men who gel in there nnd do the lighting are pvetly much the same, now and always. Like the cavalrymen in Tennyson's [joein, Ihcir jolj is coinjwi'«lively simple—to do and/or die; and down through the centuries they have had an -implicit and whole-hearted admiration for fellow members of their craft who display especial sit ill at the grim business. So that little story about the Chinese "suicide .s(|imdorn" at Shanghai, and the hit it made with the European soldiers who stood on the sidelines, is a revealing bit of history. This suicide squadron consisted of a hundred or so Chinese soldiers who had taken cover ill a ruinous warehouse along Soochovv Creek lo dispute'' the advance of t!ie Japanese. They got in there and stayed for more than two days, subjected to heavy tire throughout, going woefully short on sleep and food, and facing nothing but certain death if they didn't retreat— which they grimly refused to do. Across the creek, in the international defense sector, was a detach- jnent of British regulars—Royal Welsh Fusileors. And the stout fighting qualities shown by these Chinese soldiers somehow got under the hides of j these Britishers. So "'after a while, : \yhenV.Hhe Japanese jitteV))ted a cQiip i i<*?diriye out the Cbfjicse, JJic British -Commies came to the rescue—unofl'i-' dally, utnieiitrally, but effectively. .The Japanese came, up Iho stream i)i two naval launches mounting light guns. The banks of the river were lined with the innumerable little boats called sampans, which are a purl of every Chinese H'at.erfi-onl. And what • did the Royal Welsh Fusilccrs tlo but show the Chinese how to mass these sampans together across the stream, tying them together with cables, so as lo block the path of the launches? •That done, they led them to construct a similar barricade i'.arlher down the streniu, so that the Japanese launch-., es were* neatly trapped. Nor is that all, The brass hats fell - the same sort of soldierly admiration for the dauntless Chinese.

It was none of their business, of course -apparently the wiiolc business just naturally got to them. l>'or that is the: way it is, with soldiers. Fighting men are a class apart. They live by llicir own rule's and are bound by their own code. They may not often inquire ivJwt tin! lighting is all al)Qtit, ami they frequently grow inlitiiU'ly weary of the lighting itself —foul they ni'viT fail to' give their admiration whole-heartedly to men of their own calling who show unmistakably Dial they have what it lakes.

CHAPTER XVI. jWlLO saw Jill come inlo llio ballroom with his father and Jill's stepfather. What was his fettier doing here, anyway? When he had left, home, his father had inquired gruffly: "Going to the Wentworth party, anyway? Where's your pride, when lhat girl has treated yon like dirt under her feet?" And then, his rnllic-r had muttered nngrily: "If that girl but knew it, 1 could stop (he easy flow of money to lier house. Slift- necketl with pride, those V.'cnt- worllis, will! not mi ounce of gratitude in then- makeup. What they need is Iimnbling." Yet. lipre was his father with old man Wonlworlh, and llicy were as smiling and friendly as ever. Milo started toward Jill. As he die! so, (lie music stopped. He saw his father walk toward the orchestra nnd stoop to whisper in the leader':, car. 1: So yon ran out on me, Jill?" fllilo began indignantly. Jill broke in quickly: "This next dance is yours." * * z r | 1 O Milo's amazement the orchestra W.IK playing now and—of all things—the Wedding . March. 1'layinR it as he had never heard il played before. Swinging jt! He glanced toward his fiiihcr, .ind saw him standing proudly beside (lie orchestra leader. Milr> looked down al Jill. There was n queer her eyes. Jill wliirncred quickly. "H's for ns. Milo. Don't you understand. Isn't it a clever wav lo riunounce cur engagement? don't Icll your fattier 3x111 didn't know. Parents arc Fi> uhl-fashioued. I've just told hint and dad, and of course they thought you knew." "Jill, diirliiig. Angel! Yon planned lo surprise me—you—" MJ'O'S vnicc broke in cxeile- ment. He crushed .till in his arms and swung her inlo a one-slop. Tlie hi!.' room was whirling Jihoul Jill. Oh, please, don't lei me -faint, she prayed wildly. She inusln'l fninl. Kiir musl smile and l.'mgli and look terribly happy and proud over capturing the most eligible man in town. Nobody musl guess the bitterness and desolation in hei- heart. Oh, where was Alan? rCN, Jill saw him. Standing a little apart. He looked ill and siern. The slrangc look on his face told her more than that. Behind that sol, sick expression was inner turmoil. A thousand dreadful, destroying thoughts were raging in his mind. She must stop (his mad, sacrilegious dance with a man she despised and go to the man she loved. Hut no, she must not. There were dad and Mr. Monlanne surrounded by people. Mr. Mon- lanne was beaming at dad. And on dad's face was the look of a person reprieved from some fearful punishment. < "'Oh, Jill, darling!" Milo was whispering. "All the lime you were planning this. Dearest, you arc trembling." Jill tried to smile. She spoke through stiff lips: "Only because I took such an awful risk. Suppose yon had decided you didn't want me." Risk! When I've been off my hend about you ever since I knew you!" Jill scarcely heard Milo's ardent protest. The music had slopped and they were in the center of a milling crowd. Everyone was congratulating them. Saying the same things. Some of her closest girl friends were kissing her. ; Finally il was all over. The party had tapered off until of the scores who had come only Ihe late- leavers remained, Jill thought miserably. # * * TILL felt immensely lonely in the " midst of Ihe brassy brightness, assailed by effusive farewells that had no real warmth or friendliness in them. Crowded by laughing, noisy people, she saw Jack trying to break through to her. His smile was touched by gravity. Jack knows I've done somc- inj I didn'l want, io do," Jill thought, with n lump in her threat. "But he doesn't know why." "Hey there, sis." Jack had slipped an arm about her. "I'm going lo shove Milo out in the cold wilh (lie others. A big parly and gelling engaged is loo much for one little girl in (he same evening." "I']l send him away, soon." Jill said in a low tone. Milo thought he deserved a goodnight kiss. And perhaps he did. She was going to have to go through with il. She might as well begin. When the door had closed upon Slilo, later, Jill stood for a mo- menl letting weariness ,5iid despair have its way. Suddenly, she, stiffened. There, was a sound like. Ihe scnipini; of. ;i chair. Tlien a cautions step. "Jill!" Harry stood in the doorway where Jill's frightened gaze was rooted. His eyes were red and queer looking. His hair was disheveled. "I'm fed up with the way you treat me, Jill." Barry's voice smoldered wilh sudden onger. "Yon think I'm a bum, don't you?" TILL clirin'l answer. She started " toward the stair. Bui Barry came elosc, barring her way. He seized her hands in a hard, tense grasp and slored down at Jill with burning eyes. '''I-wasn'l so drunk! that-I: dtdii'l; know what I was doing," lie s'afd. "I wanted to sec you'alOne. Do you understand?" "'' ' 'No, 11 said Jill, shaken by some strange fear. "I'm afraid I don't. Please let go my hands." "You forget I'm not your brother, Jill." Jill's face blanched. Her eye;; were dark wilh horror. She broke away from him and fled up MW slalrs. Barry was not. only drunk. He must be insane, having terrible obsession about her. She must go to Alan. She must put 'he whole unhappy evening behind her. She owed him an explanation. She owed herself a moment of happiness, when Alan told her he nnricr.slood. When she told him about dad nnd Mr. Mon- Innnc's plan to ruin him, Alan would say she had done the only thing possible for her If! do. Jill began to undress quickly. She peeled off iho delicate evening! dress and tossed it across a chair. She went inlo the bathroom and scrubbed her face briskly. A glow leaped up in her pale cheeks. She put on n simple dress and hat and took down her heavy fur coat. And, finally, thinking of the white scene outside, she tucked a wide, woolly red scarf about hei- throat. She scarcely breathed as she tiplocri quietly down Ihe stair and into the ball which was hcnvy with the mingled odor oi flowers and lobacco. A faint i;leam of liuht was coining from her father';, study. The fact registered, and then was for- gollen as Jill's thoughts turned to Alan. It would he around C when she •cached his studio. A slight smile curved her pale lips and limited her unhappy ryes. How surprise'! he would he. to have an early morning visitor! (To Be Continued) he biciu:lil about by early and proper treatment, N'i.'XT: C'lialinc nf (Ice ."-kin.
