Ordinarily they .lean over baojcwaid not to take advantage of their command over news and editorial space to discuss industry problems. This rule is bioken most often wHen there is an 'attempt to suppress or color news. Why ii> that? Are reporters' difficulties w gathering news, and editors' difficulties in publishing it, of -any great- en public interest and importance than ,the mechanic's difficulty in golfing a recalcitrant machine to run? We think Yes. We think so because successful democracy rests upon an informed public sentiment, which in turn depends exclusively upon the ability of reporteis to obtain accurate news and editors to publish it. If no newspaperman is permitted to ( covci the foott conference at Hot Springs, scheduled for May 18, then all newspapeis save .the-heavy expense to which otherwise they would be put. i * « .« i It is icporled that Dean G. Achcsoii, assistant secretary of 'state, promises a plan is being worked out which will admit the press "at, the proper times." What times will be deemed "proper' 1 remain lo be seen. If eveiy newspaper depends upon goveinment handouts prepared tinder the censorial pencils of bureaucrats, ttien no newspaper is discriminated against Again, by accepting the situation and relying upon press-agenlry, 'die itewspapets' financial problems would be . solved . - ' Moicover, the Food Conference IK not likely to produce "hot news." H is much less mteiesting intrinsically than dozens of other assignments on which rc- poiteis coiihl be sent. • • * But newspapers, in addition lo being commeicial enterprises in (he sense that they can, operate only so long as they cam at least as much as they spend, piide themselves upon living up ,_ .conscientiously' t'o a public responsi- " " greater—for newspapers as an lion—than .that of any agency ,. j-jjf^goveinment.' teml - newspapers arc willingly co- erating to withhold a tremendous iume of news which the axis would v^jve many divisions to possess. But ''IjjHreJ' aie not-willing to sit idly around "" d, by acquiescing in the suppression military news or the distortion ' ( published "facts," to assist'in breakdown" public confidence in the only that gives eyes and cars lo th'e public on a national and worldwide scale. If (he newspapers were lo 'jmuii- esce in the Hot Springs suppression, or to soft pedal the crisis in OWi, these would constitute precedents for furfhei encroachments upon the pub- lie ng),t lo keep abreast of cnrrenl, in Ihe making. ULYTUKVILLE (AllK.)'-CO(JKlKR NEWS af, A'o Sprouts? From England copies oO'icial word that the Brussels sprout Lias been condemned to an ignominous death, for the duration, as a non-essential vegetable and, moreover, as a saboteur which wastes both land and nmujjow- er.

RIVALRY CHAPTER XX Even as he shouted it, Barry had the feeling it would wake him out of a dream. But the vision remained there in the open door of his bedroom. , Allison's voice sounded at his shoulder. "How did you get here?" It was as surprised and confused as his own. "By plane to Panama City, boat to Puerto. Barrios, and mule train from there," murmured Lila. The words released Barry from his trance. He sprang forward. "You must b« halt dead!" As he crossed the room toward his fiancee he had a half-formed belief that she would fa!n.l in his arms. She did no such thing. S!ie gave hurt a smile of greeting, weary but composed, and held up her face for his kiss. Barry kissed her dazedly, then led her quickly to his one deep chair. "Have a bed made up, will you, Allison?" He broke oft ;is Lila's eyes followed his toward the blonde girl in chiffon and diamonds still standing in the window. "You and Allison met on the boat the night I sailed," he reminded Lila. "Allison Topping." "Yes, I remember," said Lila. She nodded at Allison but her voice was cryptic. "So odd," she said, "that you two met again in the '.jungle/' . . . "Yes, wasn't it?" said Allison. Barry ' realized with dismay that the two were right back into the feud . they, had begun when 'they met. He caught the glint of feline laughter in. Allison's tone as she turned up the lamp. , '. Lila raised languid arms to remove her sun helmet. Her dark "hair was smooth and drawn low on her neck in its usual perfect order. Even in her weather- stained white suit, she looked somehow pressed and immaculate. Barry , said, "We'll get you to bed like a flash. What'll you have, a hot toddy? Coffee?" "Tea, please," murmured Lila, "if it isn't too. much trouble.'? • Barry stared at -her in amazement. "I don't sea how in heaven's name you made thai trip and Jock the way you do!" Allison was on her way to bring Die tea. "Perhaps," there was a note of troubled curiosity in her (one, "it didn't rain when you came through." 'It rained every day," LUa assured her. Barry's concern and admiration for his fiancee deepened as he and Allison rushed about rousing servants, having the small mule train that stood around by the front veranda unpacked and taken to the enclosure, getting her bedroom ready. "you're thinking," Allison accused him tartly, when they liad finally gotten the cheerful, uncomplaining Lila in her bed, "tbal she came through a whole lot better than I did." "You're not as strong/' Barry said. Allison accepted this insult with a resigned sigh. "If I hadn't .seen it, though," she brooded morosely, ''I wouldn't have believed it." " » i * JWE next morning, as Allison and Barry ate their breakfast on the cslancia veranda, the door opened and Lila strolled out. Barry leaped to his feel. "Lila! You shouldn't have gotten up!" Lila kissed him peacefully and nodded to Allison. "Why not?" she asked innocently, she was in fresh white riding habit, her skin the color of a camellia, her dark eyes glowing with bright purpose. "Because," said Allison bluntly as Barry sealed Lila opposite her ."I wasn't able to. I wasn't able to move out of bed for a couple or days." 'Really?" murmured Lila with laughing surprise. "It didn't .seem such an awful trip. I suppose I'm as strong as an ox." She didn't look as strong as an ox. Site looked slim and cool and exquisite and she knew it. Barry noted with silent amusement that Allison had angrily ctonncd a faded red shirt with the sleeves torn oft above the elbow and . worn, snagged breeches. Tiie Indian woman brought Lila's codec. She refused the hoi cakes hesitatingly and begged for a thin slice of toast. The servant hurried away for it, and she reached over to slip, her hand into Barry's. "Isn't the jungle fabulous?" she laughed. "Out of this world. It's really boon an adventure for me." Harry gave a chuckle of puzzled' admiration. "It was a fool stunt,"! be said. "But I still don't under-! stand how you survived like'you! did." | Allison suddenly pushed back' her bench and got up. "I want I to see Henaldo," she said harshly. "We'll be down at the cooking vats or nround the Indian estan- 1 cias if you want to show her! around the clearing later, Barry," 1 She stamped down the veranda ] steps like fin angry child and crossed the clearing. Renaldo was' not among the Indians working at' the boiling kettles. They smiled; at her. She was good luck for; them. Like her father had been.j She told them she was glad of! that, and asked where to find} Henaldo. A swarthy chiclero took! her to a distant Indian shack,! nround which curious natives! clustered in whispering groups.' Inside, Renaldo was bending over two Indians, bolli oE them ob-,' viously sick. i They looked strange to her. Sue' asked him who they were. • '! "They came with the mule train 1 hat got in late last night," fie-: mildo lold her. A scowl darkened! his face. "Thai woman who came must be a devil." . : ' "Why?" demanded Allison.'; '•'' i "She rode oul in a chair. Those-j men tarried it on poles. She made them run a good part of the 'way. \ They'll gel over il—bul they ran olf about 10 years of their lives!" Allison gasped. "So that's: why. . . !" Anger and malice mingled in her cry. - i "Why what?" Allison whirled. Barry and Lila '• were standing in the doorway.. There was a strained fear on Lila's face. Allison took a deep, malicious breath. - • Barry's gaxe had accustomed itself lo the gloom of the shack: and deepened with concern at Ihe' sight of the sick men. "What's wrong with the poor devils?" he cried. . ; "Overwork," snapped Allison. : "They—" As she looked at Barry, j her voice faltered. The gleam went out of her eyes. "They just overworked," she said quietly. She; walked out into the blazing sunlight and Hertaldo followed her,' glaring at Lila. . Allison introduced him lo Lib. As the tall Spaniard bowed, they' all noted Ihc change in his expression. His ^accusing scowl melted under a' warm glow of interest as he turned from Lila to Barry. i "Your fiancee. . . ?!" he echoed': happily. • ( (To Be Continued) -^ j Talking about Betty Mutton's dynamic personality, Bob Hope quipped: "If she had wings and a propeller Hitler wouldn't have n chance."
