She was hard put to And an excuse for it. it simply wouldn't do to have her family, know she . was signaling Stuart Blake. She felt pullty, like a mischievous child, when she stole out of the camp shack and hurriedly attached the sheet to the clothesline. And soon after she stole out again and took it down. At 10 o'clock she was at the trystinfr place on Chieftain. Stuart came soon after she arrived. I wasn't sure you'd be able to make it," she skid. "But I wanted to know how you were, t would have ridd -n on to the Lodge." "I'm perfect. Almost. Thanks train for helping me.- I just needed water. Another day Without It and I'd have been tied up plenty, I Imag- '" .. .'. .' tou don't look very happy." "Bui 1 feel happy today. Especially now." , -Why? What a happened V She thought she knew what he meant, but she wanted to hear him say it. "I'm with you." He leaned on his fiddle horn and looked appealingly at her. "Carolee, you told me once I'd never understand your kind of people, as you tall them. Tell me, why da you think that T Arentweall Americans?" "Yes. But you're northern, and city teared. Papa and the boys have bet'n poor farmers all their lives. They mean well. They are good to me. But they are narrow, I ttuess; and hard." "But yourself, Carolee. You aren't that way. You're alert and smart You dont have to stick with yonr family and all, do youT I mean Dot always?" . She wasnl sure she understood him. "I guess not But Era one of them, anyway.. I think you aits nice, though; I dont ever hold a grudge, and I'll admit, again that we were very rude in the saddle store that day." "Oh, forget that. That's history, and more funny than anything. Look, milady, I've brought you a gift. It's little enough for the favor you did mo yesterday." - He gave, her small parcel. ."She dimpled at him, and the .vision sl.e made cent thrills through him. Carolee Colter was pretty, sweet, refreshingly so. She wore rouge often, but ft was superfluous. And her curls were natural. She was slightly short, weighed, perhaps, 116. There was ever-so-delicate a snub to her nose, Stuart studied her closely as She unwrapped her gitt. . "O-o-oh! Stuart!" ' She lifted it from its tissue a bracelet of silver set with the most perfect of turquoise. One large stone was shaped like an arrow head, barbs and all. Tiny round ones followed the open circle of the bracelet beautiful blue-green gems which Carolee knew were native to the Aritona hills. The silver was heavy and richly adorned with tiny symbols, a swastika, a running horse, a wiggly snake, Indian signs all. . "Old Hosteen made it for me," said Stuart. "Or rather for you. Re comes to the Lodge "sometimes. He's not Apache, like the squaws you saw. He's Navajo." She slipped it on her lovely arm. She held it out, up. "The stones match the sky," he almost whispered, si keen was her admiration. ,. "It's beautiful, Stuart. Thank you, very, very much." , . "I'm happy if you like it, Carolee." . "Then you're happy, very happy." "I hoped ft would please you. I have never seen you wear a bracelet before." She kiked wistfully at him ar.d smiled more sweetly than he had ever before seen her, he thought. "I dont have one. Boys in school gave me candy, and sometimes Bowers. Nobody ever gave me jewelry before. Not even my parents." She was speaking very gently. It was obvious that he had touched her; a hint of tears even glistened, and to save her possible embarrassment he turned to the scenery again. "It's fur piece across there, as the cowboys say, jsnt it? 1 wondtr how the Tribune ToWer Would Idok. sitting out there. Or the Merchandise Mart ?" "The what?" She looked up at him. "Ha ha! That V Chicago, Carole. Two of our big skyscrapers. They'd look tiny besides any little mountain out here, though." , "What is thkafeo like, Stuart " . "Like like a nightmare Sometimes. Noisy and crowded Slid ugly. Not always, thouph. I've had swell times there. You'd love it for i while. But any city is little synthetic, 1 think." "You mean you think, it Isnt real? The people ? The fun ? Everything ?" They talked for an hour about Chicago. She asked many questions. Dallas was the biyg- st city she had even seen, and that only to bass through. She had gone to school at t junioi college in Jacksonville, Tekss. . Acquaintance with a rtittn front the bustling, energetic, urban, north wa stimulating to htr. She liked .Stuart Blake. She. told her!fe!T she coMd "love him even, if thin? ever Went that way. He seethed weft clean,. ! He had never Irk d to kiss her. Sometimes, she confessed to herwIfV she even wished he bad!) And hi ift, this beautiful bracelet of Indian silver, was some thim she'd n'yver fot. She'd rather have hfid it than ft thing or diamond!! It 'was ft pari bf Arizona, artiiBllv and intiiVi ntally. . When it was time to g6 ahe thanked him again, and sfrreed to V P,,n often on ni'ghal. She diseourai?ed anv thought of hi railing at her shack home, even to tske her id'rig. . 'Mt ha been lovely to see jriu and talk," she told hiin. f'l have even forgotten to worrfr " k She rejrtettei the , Idnilsrurt Instantly. She bit ner lip and frowned. He was looking at ner, Kinmy dot in tently. , , ., , . , . . '. , -. ' - "Something's wrong,", he said, "I have butted in on your family affairs too much already, but " , . "It's nrobably nothing alarming, she forced a smile. "I I think your experience in the mountain upset ine a little, is all. I'm so happy you didnt suffer more. I may not signal tomor row, but I will let you know u ever i need ou, Stuart." To both of them It seemed very natural thing for her to say.

By PRESTON CROVER Washington Little Steel has a very different idea of what the reasons were for Big Steel suddenly capitulating to John, L. Lewis and his CIO earlier this year. . At the time it occurred, Myron Taylor, chairman of the board -of United State Steel which is . Big Steel was credited with suddenly enlightened liberal attitude toward labor. The old policy of refusing to deal with the unions was scrapped, and the organizing drive by Lewis was met by capitulation to nearly all his terms. Little Steel, Which includes such companies as Republic, Youngstown Shet and Tube, Bethlehem, and Inland, did not at the time express publicly its own views on the subject but we now have it from a very good 30urce'that the barons of Little Steel Soiled with wrath over the deal. , Mind you, the views expressed here ire the views of certain figures in Little Steel and are reported solely for the purpose Of telling another side if the background . of Big Steel's agreement with Lewis. They throw a light On recent steel strike troubles. From behind the walls of strike-iddcfj Little Steel comes the asser-'ion that one of the reasons for Big U'wis was that a few "Wsll Street Sankers" hnd quantif ies of XL S. Steel Steel reaching a quick agreement with stocks they wanted to unload at a cer tain price above 100. They felt thnt a pro?ppct of prolonged peace would 'put it there. (TJ. $. Steel was wll above 100 both before and after the agreement of early March. It was a shade under 100 as this was written.) '.Another reason X.ittle Steel advanc ed: It is well known that when one i ELKTON MANUFACTURING lLANT BEING RAZED Elkton July 8 Workmen are razing the Elkton Pulp Works and clearing away the. debris and leaving what once was a thriving manufacturing plant on West Main Street. Three years ago the mill was abandoned be cause it was found more profitable to import soda pulp than continue its manufacture. major steel group raises wages, others follow. But a somewhat complex wage schedule, so the story goes, lets Little Steel off easier than Big Steel when wages are raised. Little- Steel now argues that Lewis agreed with Big Steel that when he undertook to organize Little Steel he would wipe out this advantage. This would increase Little Steel's cost, and so benefit Big Steel. . A third reason advanced is coupled with considerable home town pride. Big Steel, centering at . Pittsburgh, has cheap coal and a nearby seaboard as distinct advantages over Little Steel, centering in Ohio.. Little Steel argues that it can, continue to exist in the face of these advantages only because its plants are highly efficient, employing a large proportion of especially skilled steel labor. - Steel barons argue that establishment of a closed shop lowers the fact-pry average of skill among the workmen. If such a condition should develop in highly efficient little Steel, one of Its principal mpans of competition with Big Steel would be wiped out . For all these reasons with their bald implication that John L. Lewis had, in a sense, conspired with Big Steel Little Steel fights and distrusts Lewis and his CIO., . ,. That is a side of the story eomin from within the ranks of Little Steel. Some of it bears the earmarks of sound logic. Some of it does not. Eyes Examined Glasses Furnished HAROLD N.
