IJecbrds of the National Safely C'oun- til iiulirnlc fhat automobile drivers are at last beginning to ^cl a little bit more careful—lint tire improvement is so .slight that it is lurnl to j;el very enthusiastic about it. In the lirst 10 mouths of ihi.s year, for instance, 31,950 people were killed in traffic accidents. The record for llic first 10 months of 1'pyG .sliowod a lows of life- of 29,51)0. There was, accordingly, an iuc'rease of 8 per cent in tin; number of fatalities. This, however, is 'offset by the fact that there was an increase 'of !) per cent in auto traffic. In proportion to the number of ears on the road, then, we kil'ed fewer people this year than last. But the gain is pathetically Hinull. Unless-we .can speed up our improvement, It will lie the y'ear 2000 A. I), before the gaiii is visible to the naked eye. Limiting Aiilo fyueds The chief trouble with automobile traffic these 'days is that the automotive engineer has gone too far ahead of the highway engineer—to say nothing of the average driver. So says J. Bl. Gentry, Oklahoma '. slate safety commissioner-, in ;i plesi for .1 national agreement among auto manufacturers to limit car"'speed lo TO miles an hour. ij -, v,'' As things stand, Mr. Gentry, {joints oul, the average auto ivil!"'go : -'much faster than the average road can safely accommodate it, and also much faster than the. average driver can safely guide it. A speed much above GO miles an hour should be entrusted only lo highly (jimlilicd motorists and confined lo specially designed ;iml built roads. Whether such an agreement as he sutrgcsts can ever be obtained is, perhaps, doubtful. But his proposal does touch on one of the most important aspects of the highway safety problem. f'ooibnll Tax Kick • H is rather surprising t« U>ani (hat certain great stale universities hnvc filed suit, to recover amusement taxes colleded Ijy the federal government on football tickets. The universities contend that football is an essential state function, that the government HfchVfutiy ta£ a university for pel-forming «ucl> Vt Mic'li'dl), and Ihftt the amusement tax has therefore been wrongly collected. Unless we are getting back to the old Roman idea—that it is the government's job lo keep the populace amused—it is pretty difficult to sec just how 1'oolbAll can be defended as an essential .stale function, even by the most clastic stretch of that term. Football is a sport and n spectacle. It is fairly well professionalized, in its essentials, and the universities profit immensely by it. Kew lawyers could take seriously the plea that it in s'urli an essential part of the • educational process that it should go mitaxcd. Wi'ssed 7Yi<* Wit-et Slum-eliniinattoii sche'incs have iU- t'ractcd a great deal 'of utt'ctition and public support in the ias.t few years; but I hey do seem to possess toftu ilaw which, unless someone finds a way around it, will nullify ino«'t of the Hood 'they do.

CHAPTER XXI ; 'PHE cck-bralion continued until I ' well past noon, and Bob was forced lo do some tactful hinting in order to. gel more food for himself and 'Lissa. "Evidently white pods aren't fupposcd to eat much,'' Bob grnm- I'Jccl, Kood-naturcdly. "J'tl give a lot to sit down to nun of Honey Bee's meals right now." "Me Loo!" 'Lissa agreed. "Say, I wonder what's happening bad; in camp, Dob? Don't you imagine Uncle Hades is likely to start nftcr us?" "Your guess i:; as goorl as mine. II .'til depends on wlia'. Hie cook lells. Unfortunately, \vc ordered her not to tell anything, yon know. Wove got to gel out of here as soon as possible." Bob need not have worried about their escape, for the brown people themselves had been planning. When the huge bonfire h!m died clown and the merrymaking suh- sided, Ihc chieftain approached fcub, with great deference. The two men talked, with signs and a few words which Bob had picked up, for more than an hour. A ring of villagers stood around to watch, at respectful distance. "I think we understand each other, at last," Bob eventually said lo 'lAssn. "The chief here is beg- jjing a boon for his people. He petitions us never lo reveal the location of their village to their enemies." 'Lissa stared queslioningly at Bob. "Who are their enemies? Now. I mean?" "Nobody. But they don't un- dci-sland that. Their word-of- mouth history tolls of raiding cutthroats, who drove their ancesinrs out of the cliff castle, you know. They fled lieiu lo hide. They've been hiding for n long iimc, and they don't know anything else." "Oh— that's right. And I don't much blame them, Bob." "Nor I. They begged us not to destroy them ourselves, too. I promised,' provided we would have an escort back up the cave trail." wasn't sure she wanted ever to sec Ihe inside of any cave again, nut Bob told her there might be n, other way out of the box canyon, even with dangerous climbing. The brown chief said K>, and his people surely ought to know. -Rock walls can be defiant of man. "However, I'll bet trades Jones and Holli-nan and 1 could figure a way to gH out," Hob was staring spcculati/oly at the cliffs. "Taltc some lengths of rope, spiked shoes, a short miner's pick, and—" "Bob, aren't you assuming foo much, though'.' These people liavc no rope. Or shoes. Or mctnl tools of any kind." "That's right, sweetheart, Bu! t was just supposing. Anyhow 1 want to go bach through the cave. We'll have a guide back to my lost shoulc'er pack. And 1 marked our town way down to there, you re- I mcHilier." 'Lijsa shuddered, in memory. But -.he nodded agreement. "Will you come hack here soon?" she asked, looking up at his eyes. lit hcsilafed a long while before answering. "What do you think? Would you?" He kissed her full on the lips. "I'm going to be busy for a while, getting married, and making love, ar.d—" .'jhe blushed at (hat, smiled at him. "Most gentlemen make love to girls first, then get married sir!" "A'ot me! I'm going to make love right along, true enough, but believe me Miss Lane you're going to marry your business partner as ciuiekly as we can get a license and a preacher." "Fraid I'd run away?" she teased. "Maybe. Wouldn't blame you a lot. I'm taking no chances." "But honey." She snuggled to him then. "You will want to see this place again, and you know it. This would fascinate any archaeologist." " 'Lissa girl, this experience lias been bigger than any archaeology, or any other science. Why this is —this is a Utopia! It's not real, yel it is. It's almost unbelievable! The living dead. The existing past. I know it's a heaven for an archaeologist, in one way. But you've done something to me here. Don't forget also that we're demigods in this village, supernatural. Just imagine it—the only while people they've ever seen or heard- of. These folk still live back 'in the fourteenth century, in effect.'' "1 know, Bob. I have thought about it ail day. It would be cruel, inhuman, to disturb them." "I'll say! Imagine the newspa- pers. And the newsvcel cameramen. And Ihe tourists, and hot (tog stands and filling stations popping up on the new road out liere ^gosh!" * * t 'THE enormity of the affair impressed them both. So called while civilization can be very heartless, for all its greatness. The; Lost Kingdom would be overrun with white men in a week's time. In a year its people would be disintegrated, scattered, confused, saddened, their contentment and perhaps their very existence doomed. "Mary Melissa," Bob was very genllc and very serious, "lei's novei- tell. Let's keep it our love secret —yours and mine. Wo found our own happiness here. Why destroy theirs? Lsi's—let's allow one aboriginal American race [o slay unmolested by whites, and so work out its owti destiny!" Against his chesl she sobbed ;i lillle, reached up r.nd patted liis now stubble-covered cheek. "Robert Barry," she murmured, "I would have loved j-ou in any event, but right now I Ihink yon are tlic greatest man who ever lived!" Boo managed fo obtain a bit of dried meal for their food, but fhey had lo spend another night in Ihe canyon village. They slept again in the chieftain's house. Many presents were brought to them. The chief himself selected ;i guide for them next day, a young brown lad who appeared signally honored. Probably he had a reward coming to him, Bob suggested to 'Lissa, and (bis was it. He hadn'l far to lead them, really. Bob wanted to explore the cave, but lie resisted rill temptation to take back any evidence of (he cave or tlic bidden valley. When the guide found their pack, and Bob located his own chalk trail markers, lie turned and addressed', the brown boy. The lad never understood, but lie was obviously, impressed with Bob's speech. Bob then opened the blades of his pocket knife, indicated its possible use, and gave it to the boy. Short of life itself, lie couldn't have offered anybody H gift more wonderful. Tlie boy's happiness was almost divine. : When the lad had disappeared back down Ihc subterranean trail and his torchlight was no longer Visible, Bob held his own light anil —taking 'Lissa's hand—led the- way slowly upward, alone with her again.
