In Anxcvica, John Holmes was m.ule president of Hie packing Iruist ol' Swift ;md Co. He is the first iiuvn not named Swift to become president of tlie com- pa#y; he entered the firm in 1900 as a messenger boy, ami' worked his way to tKe top in the traclitionaj way.

But the thjug goes a little deeper than that For what this coincidence really m,e;ms is that wdl-nm .organi- y.tUons in any Jaucl—Communist Kus- sia, capitalistic Aiuerjca, or wherever —have sense enough not to build, up \ arheWjdifafy caslc system, 'an' urisloc- " racy of birth. They bring, their laid,. ferslip fi'Om the Uoltqm sinipjy, beciuise that is one way to get good leaders. America has no copyright on the story. The willingness to accept new blood," to i-e\vavd ability , where it is found and to give it a chance to e^ert itself, is simply the pi ice of survival. You might notice that the two great Kuropean nations which stand as the very denial of democracy—Germany and Italy—ai'c today governed, lespectively, by ;\ former house Rainier and by the 'sou of a Village blacksmith. And, indeed, this uprfrom-lhc-b.otr torn business has nothing to do with democracy. It simply means that the people who. run thiiigs recognize that Ihere is Jio, .substitute for ability, and that you have to take ability where you find it, If .ability happens to be lodged in the boss's son, well and good; if no.t, look for it elsewhere.

"Looks shpstly," she ventured. "It is. There's a wealth pf legend about the place, Miss Lone. Many gppd yarns; spme fact, maybe. These dwellings were abandoned before Columbus sailed. We d,on't know why." "qopdness!" breathed the while girl. "It's fascinating." ' "Yes!" "Maybe the Indians drove th'em away. But where'?" "Can't say.

First, ti\e wind at the c[iff edge w,au very stro;)|, forestalling all effects: to shout instructions up to HoXli- man once the descent over the ledge wa,s beguu. Ho was dangling down 'nearly 150 feet when he discovered that he was on a level with the castle floor. He shouted to Holliman; but got no answer, and Holliman let him go down some -30 feet too far. Then ho realized the importance of the second item he had forgotten—the cliff overhang. His strong arms, developed in years of swimming, enabled him to climb back xip to liie level'of the castle floor. But because ot the overhang above liinij he-was still 20 feet or more from the rock lip. He knotted t^e rope at that point and studied the situation. "Hey, Holliman!'- 1 he yelled,' but the wind swallowed his voice. ''Gee, it's a long "drop ynder me!" he murmured. \i was indeed. About 400 feet to somp treetops, then more trees in assorted levels for 200- feot or so m,ore. He could see Miss Lane and Honey Bee staring up at ^lim. He gvionod and waved, showing more coiifj- dencc than he felt. He noted in a flash that the ancient castle walls, made of crude masonry, were remarkably well preserved. He was close enough to study their exterior. He thought he could see blackened rocks, where fires had buni'ed centuries ago. But scientific interest was -Reeling. He had twisted the rope around liis left leg lo hold himself there, and the- stricture was hurting, lie looked up. Could a man climb 150 feet pf rope? He didn't know. Ho was swaying in She wind. On a narrow ledge down to the left he rccpgnized an eagle's nest. He suddenly envied the eagles/ A moment of hysteria cliilled him, but he literally forced himself to think calmly again. Robert Barry had a.trained mind. ' ' '" • He i coul'd see but two 'pb'&itftft- ;tses. Each offered .a.,vqiy slim chance, he realized, but h'e must decide quickly tp risk one of them.
