There are no replacements for tires thus destroyed. Their loss will mean that the car has 1 to be laid up, probably until late 1944 or some time in 1945, if not longer. The King Is Dead Time wns, not long .since, when the (teatli of' J. ]'. Morgan would have crowded any war out of the top headlines, and might have .shaken the nation's financial structure to its depths. The jfrcat banker lived so long that hi.s passing, when it came, was just a good news story. In the old days, Wall Street was the money capital of the richest nation in (he world, and the House of Morgan was the hub of Wall Street. The Morgan linn virtually financed the allies in World War 1 until this nation entered, and acted as their agent. Now Wall Street is just a dingy cau- yon in downtown New York, where a lot of struggling firms have olfice space. Washington is the financial, commer-' cial, industrial capital of the world. The King of Wall Street is dead. But even before he died, he had become little more than a very rich relic of the other days. •SO THEY SAY We nrc not nsking thnL the Army be depleted.

SERIAL' STORY By OREN -- -;. r \T :-^\^m l , * NEA-StrvjcVln&'l PAT'S PLAN CHAPTER XX TJ/1IEN tlic rnorniiiff radio fonim * ended there in the hotel con- vcnlion hall, Pat Friday came out with her face looking ever so serious. Her mind was in a whirl, and she dodged the lobby crowd which would surely recognize her, clucked up a stairway and went to (lie big women's lounge. First person she spotted there was Lorainc Stuart. Pat stopped in her tracks. ° It wouldn't do to antagonize Lo- rnine. Not any more than had been done already. This whole situation, Pat reminded herself, was -so strained! Here in Phoenix, Ariz., hanging on the outskirts of all the publicity and all the excitement and fun of the transcontinental soaring flight, was Captain Carr's own fiancee. The girl v.'ho was originally scheduled to fly with him, and .who, the public 'thought,, actually-.was with him, ;vt least in name. Only—it was Pal lierself who publicly carried Loraine's name. The real Lorainc remained a nonentity, sulking, 'concealed. All at once Pat felt a rush of sympathy for Ihe other girl. "Whether I like her or not has Holding lo do with if," Pat 'old herself. "She just got a dirty break at. Ihe start. And—and after all—she's the girl Jimmy loves!" That was (lie fact which slung. Loraine Stuarl was Ihe girl Jimmy loved. Pal's own love, for Jimmy was a. secret which only two people in the world knew; She went to Lorainc and sat down. "Come on and go places with me," Pat invited, with sincere kindness now. "There's no point in our despising each other, Loraine." The taller girl was smoking. Shc exhaled, looking off as if unaware of I'at at all. ; . "No," shc said, finally. Pal lucked a pretly lip in, thoughtfully.'Then she tried again. "Loraine, I've already told you, Ihe whole thing is impersonal with me. It's bigger than we arc. And as for Jimmy himself—I admitted 1 was out of the picture there, too. He's yours, by his own choice. And you owe it (o him to—to be a good sport and all. . . . Don't you?" She looked at Pat, then. ."Did ho ECIK! you lo tell mo this?". "Goodness no!" . "Then lot me alone." For a long moment Pai • just looked at the other girl; studying her, When she spoke again, it was in low, sad lono. "All right, Lo- raine. ... All right. ... I just wanted to—try To be friends. To try!" Pat left her, then. There were some things she couldn't do, and this was one she had muffed, she realized. It built unhappiness, deep inside. What a shame that'a boy as tops as Jimmy Carr had to marry such a girl! Had to. . . . Pat. shrugged. Loraine was his own choice. Jimmy Carr was conferring with Army officials and technicians in another of the hotel halls, Pat knew. They would have a lot of man-talk about Ihe trip so far: 'Hie tow plane's performance at various altitudes. The various slresses encountered. The effects of air pockets. The reports on weather and oilier natural phenomena. Weather: especially was important. Pat and Ed Bryan had faced two sforms on Iheir. power flight westward, and this morning she had looked out the east window of her hotel room and saw ominous clouds over distant Superstition Mountain. Superstition lurked on the horizon like a sprawling blue monster. "I want io Inlk lo Jimmy," Pat told herself now. "If tliose farmers.— that one especially — want proof—" o * * AM' audacious idea had ^ermi- nated in Pal's mind, but she held il down unlil shc could talk with Jimmy Carr. She carried it lo his conference room right now. "Come in, Miss Stuart!" 'the men greeted her with respect. Pat haled the necessity of mastjucrad- ing under Loraine's name. J3ut she stuck it out, "Conkl I have about 10 minutes of your lime, gentlemen?' she asked. "If Captain Carr and I could only—" Jimmy had seen her now. "Pal!" he called, involuntarily. Then, remembering, said, "Come in, xih, Loraine. Sure, sure!" Pat could have been a nickname; a pet name whicli a man called his fiancee. Army men smiled benignly on llicm and made a place for her at their long table. "I was just talking to a farmers' meeting," she explained. "And— and a man challenged me. I guess he made nie mad." A youngish major spoke up. "I will personally shoot him, Miss Sfuarl." Pat gave him a quick smile. "This is serious, major. I mean it. Bui first J want to be sure of my ground." Shc turned, as if seeking highest possible authority, to another man. - "Jimmy, didn't, jou say ghders could be'madc.ifpriaWiinilftlzWt'; each, when quantity producliori sfarts?"-slie asked. .

Exaclly what we are doing in America, of course, js military information, kept quiel right. now. But our Army men have already announced plans for moving 75,000 soldiers coast to coast over night. Using gliders, towed by airplanes." "I knew that!" Pat nodded "The 75,000 \yonid- include lull equipment, even (o light cannon and machine guns!" "A lot o£ weight, then.
