Which is to Kay that while Con- gi;esfj' is full of talk about what (his dwhii'y may be coming (o, it is having; o' mortally hard time deciding just what the affirmative ami negative sides of the issue 'should be. .:T)ieA'e is'the matter of the budget, for' in.slanco. Congress wants to sue government, expenditures cut, but the cutting tool has ji handle lil<c o ral- lio'l poker. The army and tlie wivy arc co.sting enormous sums,' and bid fair to. cost more; but wltlj lite work! jn (lie state it is in, , the army and the navy look like first-rate insurance which . is . i wii-th whatever it niaycost, ,';Tlien Uiprq is relief— a sUipciidous- ly" expensive thing, which must be bitten into pretty materially if we are to get our goyeviiine'i.H cqats "down Id anything resembling normal. But while Congress sddles up to this subject, the PftSjinnilni voifies of the conference of mayors ring in its ears,, warning that to cut relief . \vjll hp to invite trouble by- the carload lot. i..;v-JJasbr LaGuardia t pfojNe\v''YQ)'k says •hliJijtlj' that' relief j,s--jjojii|f -'- rpcqssjpn, • he warns, means increased iineriipJoynient; far from tapering oil', tlic relief load is due to increase, anil increase materially, in (ho coming win% ' - •' ' i; Mivyci'. UQyimlm is followed by Mayor Hnrok] Ii, Puilo" of Cleveland, ii ; conservative Uepubliciui, Consevva- tive BuvtO!) talks just like L.ef t-\Ving LaGn 3 vdia., when relief is mentioned. Cut off tho fedora) relief program, says Mayor Bmiqn, awl in Cleveland "100,000 people will be compelled to cljoos'q between starvation and <i law- loss'' search for food." Other mayors ta|k in the same vein; niul ft'Qm then- rcijini-ks o)ie senses that t|ie relief load, onerous though it is, is something that can neither be talked WyVnor ignored. We still have , this enormous (indigested niass of unemployed men; humanitarian reasons OUT OUli WAY aside, we caiuict, in sheer nelf-ilefciise, do iinylliing but continue to carry it as long as- it exists. Which seems to indicate, then, that our inipiediato salvalioij iuay not lie in the direction of cutting expenses and slicing into the <|elicil. We should slop spending scores of (pillions on relief, bul u'o can't do it while need exists; the neod will go on existing until private industry is able to absorb tho jobless workers. ' So Congress might well thnik about industry instead of the federal treasury, for a while. It might think abimt that delicate, ICIUIOIIH thing called con- lidencc, and how it can be restored; about the proposition that jf govern- n\niU I'an't got business back on ils I'eot it could try lulling business gut back unaided—and unhampered.

Bo& had the party up ia the gray ol tlawn. "Let's cat and get going!" lie urged. "We can get into the rasUe before 3 o'cloek, I lliink. Shouldn't !ie hard to place the last two lad- liers." It was liai-tl, and it was rather dangerous, but iha job was done. Holliman, who had jncant to be- gi'l some of liis lovemaking, ns contracted, didn't lind anv sort ot chance for it, so hard did Bob drive them. It was past nine When the ladders were nil safe. Bqlj himself might have climbed 40 {eel then and gone back into t|ie castle, but instead he cniiic back down. "You are going next, Miss Lane," he smiled at Mary Melissa. "This ia really your party, you know." . Quite by e.'iance he looked then 1 at Honey Bee Girl. The Indian W(<s, staring longingly upward. Bob, kind of heart anyway, was instantly touched. "Say, Honey Bee, 'would you like lo go lip? v.'ith the first party, I mean? Come on, if you want to. You follow Miss Lane, then we'll bring up the i-cav." Ho had no idea what feelings his bland invitation treated in each girl's heart. Mary Melissa could have slapped him almost, she told herself. But even so, she recognized his motive, and ajl- mireci him for it. Honey Bee nodded, cold, impassive. This first climb up took more than 20 minutes. Nobody spoke. Bob, stoud at Hie bottom of each ladder, steadying it until the girls reached the ' next ledge and the :;cx! !2d«)ei- above. When they had gone single file over tho rirn, and stood by tho castle door lac- ftig (he bright morning sun, Bob Blade quite an occasion of ii. "Mais Melissa Lane," he 'proclaimed, "you are the first while woman over to set foot in tliis fortress. Moreover, you are tfic first woman of any sort— and prob- - Hie second human being—lo visit here in at least 1000 yearsi" * * * thpu,gh.t at it thrilled 'LJssa.. She felt a queer tightening her throat, She said nothing'. She smiled at Bob, and logelher they stared across Ihe 200 miles of haze and blue and purple qnd led spread before them—a gigantic palletle, of pastel painlSidaubed there by Nature, and oddly alive by the morning motion of the sun. Mary Melissa gave thought to the contrast this view meant in her life. In New York City her home was a do luxe apartment 40 stories up from fMti street. Now she was on a similar height -looking, incidentally, from the porch of yet another apartment. The grandeur, somehow, was mucji the same. "It's—magnificent, Dr. Bavry!" she murmured it, barely audible. The silencp, not the roar of traffic, was dominant here. Skyscrapers were not 40 stories, nor 80; they were rocky peaks'a hundred "stories," or a, thousand. A fc\v birds could he seen. Grazing jn their new corral 600 feet' down \yerc tiie expedition's mules and horses—but in all (he expanse before them was not another visible living thing. » • t JJOB sensed her mood, and (lie spell of Ihe place gripped him too, «iused him iiiomeiitanly to forget liis science, the'past that stood in masonry behind them. He gazed, at the eastern horizon. Then something—he never knew whaW caused him slowly to turn and look at Mary Melissa Lane. He saw her profile tHere—real- ly saw the girl for'the first tiine. She had been a person before, a very definite person, who could and did issue a 55000 check Ihal ivas good, and who filled surprisingly well into the personnel of a mountain expedition. But now— By George, her eyelashes are amazingly long! And'her nose and chin—nothing pert there, nothing flippant. A'solidity, rather; yet delicate, too. Molded so finely. With no fault. His scienlist's eye was analyzing l)er, not at the direction qf his mine), but from •some deeper force. Unconsciously she parted her lips a trine, and he saw perfect ieelh. ' A moment later she turned lo him, perceived his intense scrutiny, and turned away smiling.. It broke liis trance,'.but'-'pV.' Hoberl Wilson Barry, ar.chaeoio- 3is(, realized for'the first time in iis adull life that the present can 3c altogether as fascinating as the >ast. In him, a. mature young sci- entist, his heart was inexplicably pounding! "Don't seem to be anybody elsp here," Hades Jones called. He had been peering in various doors. "Look out for rattlers jn places like this." "Snakes?" queried 'Lissa. "Tm> high up, Uncle Hades?" • They come up along rocks, anywhere.

"But why?" asked 'Lissa. "Where did they go, I wonder." "That's exactly why we are here?" Bob reminded. "If we can find the answer lo that, it will be worth—everything." "Could they have cut entrance steps in (tie stone, that have since been eroded away?" 'Hardly. Rainfall is scant in this country. Wind erosion would require maybe a million years for lha,t. No, remains of any stairs they cut would still be visible." They explored inside, The, mummy was valuable, Bob said. No doubt they would find more human remains, after slight digging. They fqiincl many odds and ends of artifacts, (he things and tools of life many centuries before, remarkably well preserved by the :iigh, dry atmosphere qf what is now called Arizona. Then Bob picked up a stonp nainmer. ' It was tied lo a slick handle, as* usual wiih native weapons. And —most significant—the rawhide thong that lied it was still in good condition, still tight and strong. He stared at it intently. "Something important?" askec) Mary Melissa. 'Very. This skin, on this ham^. mcr. Say, somebody was here much less thap 1000 years ago. Nearer 100 years, I'd estimate, or this raw-hide would have decayed. But the crumbled walls, and everything else in sight, look lika 10 centuries or more. This com T plicates the thing immensely, 'Lissa." . Mary Melissa didn't care!.
