Finish ihe Job Now The campaign for §70,000 to provide a building for a major industrial enterprise- in Blylhovillo lias been .brought to ii successful conclusion. Preparations are being made to begin , construction and the work will gel underway just as soon as the money thai has been subscribed is actually paid. It is to be hoped that there will be no great.delay. Surely no resident of this com'niunily \vanls to be in the position of holding up this undertaking through failure to fulfill his pledge. A major part of the money is already' in hand. Those who have promised the rest of it should arrange - at once to pay it. Prompt action is desirable for a number of reasons. In the first place, the - Ricc-Slix company, which has - agreed to establish a factory in the building,' finds itself in urgent need of additional manufacturing facilities. The company has been patient, allowing Tjlylhcville many extension's of time, but should great further delay - develop it is not beyond possibility that the company might seek a location elsewhere. In the second place a prompt start on the building would provide employ, • ment for many local artisans and laborers during the dull winter season. That cerlainly is an item worth considering. And. thirdly, the sooner the build'- ing is ,£omplcted the sooner the big factory \yilj be put in operation and -the soolib'f" this community' will be- gin'reaping the benefits for which it has subscribed $70,000 of its money. Immediate payment of the money they have pledged will perhaps Work ' liardsliip on some. Whatever sucri- licc may be involved, however, will - be one for which completion of this - factory undertaking will ultimately bring ample compensation. The job is almost done and the welfare of the ; entire community demands that it be ' finished at once. , swooped low over a [Madrid street, and a machine gunner turned his deadly spray of bullets straight into a long line of women, waiting their turn to enter a butchei shop And here is the sinking thing: Though a number of the women weio killed and wounded, the line of shoppers had formed again after several minutes! • Such callousness to life's vicissitudes seems almost unbelievable, but the ability to develop it is one of the greatest blessings of the human race. FRIDAY, JANUARY g, 193 SIDE GLANCES By George- Clark' A Contrast Immediately after- Hie abdication of King Edward, recently, a Hollywood executive was.reported to have cabled an offer of ?, 1,000,000 or so foi the appearance of the ex king and Mis Simpson in a screen romance. To most people, undoubtedly, this breach of good taste revealed the extent to which some film executives would go for publicity But another incident lias occurred •which helps offset this unpleasant impression. Following the death of a young airline hostess, in a plane crash, a Hollywood producer Jus announced that he has deleted from his new picture a number of .scenes in which the girl api>eared, sending the negatives to the; b.ereavcd family That he scorned the opportunity to cash in on the "morbid uniosity ot fans should help revue f.uth 111 film- land ethicK.

It was Betty this time who was. missing. Boh ate in silence anil when the meal was finished followed Pearl John and Hamon iulo the library, a determined expression on his face. "Which of you knows where she is?" lie demanded. Pearl John lighted .1 cigarct before answering coolly. ''Now keep your shirt on, Bob. No use talking like that. There are only the three of us left and we've got to sec this thing through together. 1 "That's all right to sny, dc Forest, ' snapped Bob, "but I've hac oil 'I can stand of murder am~ mysterious disappearances." '•You're insinuating lhat I knov where Belly went?" asked Pear John, his checks darkening. "I'm not insinuating at all. I'm asking you," answered Bob stern ly. "One of you must know wher she is, and, by Heaven, I'm goini to get it out of you, if I hav to—'" Ramon sprang to his feet, hi hands clenched. "Just 'who se you up as a judge of cither ol us Graham?" he rasped. "Has it oc tuned lo you lhat more than on can play at that game? What to prevent us thinking you kno ; something . about tins? : , You'y been ; very much inlercs'lcd i Betty. Everyone knows that." ob? ; Ramon's 'OR a moment Bob did not answer; then he said slowly, Yes, I have been—more than in- posted. That's why I'm. going i tear this place to pieces, if nec- tary, to find her. Both o£ you >preciated her beauty and larm, too, I noticed. Especially e Forest. Isn't that true. Pearl olm?" With a smothered oath, Pearl olm jeiiked around, but Ramon ripped his arm. "Not so fast ow. I've got a few things to etlle wilh him, myself, first. Just 'here do I come in, may I ask, black eyes flashed. And what makes you so sure ngelique doesn't know anything lout all this? Has she been prac- cing charms on you, too? What rout the Indian? . How do you now he's really disappeared?" It was this last thought that ooled Bob's fury somewhat. He in one hand across his eyes and ood, looking at the others, with ospair on his face. "I've got to nd her," he said. "I've got to!" He turned to Ramon. "What did ou mean about Angelique?" he skcd. "Nothing—except-that since she eems to be able to wrap any man n the place about her pretty nger, it isn't improbable that she nay know more about affairs here ban she is letting on?" "We'll ask her," Pearl John dc- ided suddenly and went in search 'f her. The others sat moodily, raiting. In a short time Pearl John ipencd the door for Angelique md she came into the room, casing a quick glance at each of the ncn. "Well?" sh'e asked. ' Bob walked over to her. "Arc qu sure you don't know where Belly Welch is?"'he asked. » * * OR a moment, only the crackle of the fire was heard in the •oom. Then the girl's lovely eyes ilowly filled wilh tears. "Hou should I know?" she sobbed. Bob turned furiously on the other.two. "What did I tell you? if you two find any pleasure in tormenting a girl, I don't." He helped Angelique to her feel and led her to the door. "Forgive us, Angelique," he begged. "Anc try not to be so afraid. We'll ge out of this somehow." He closed the: door behind her, and cami back to the others. ';"I.hope that satisfies you," hi said.. "~ No—a man or men did all of the things that have been done! around here, and I still think you both know, more than you're will4j ing to admit." H "So that's it?" sneered Ramon?) "You, a perfect stranger lo both!; of gs, have the nerve lo accused its of crimes that you yourself^! may have committed. 1 * For a moment Bob saw red. The 1 '] other man's taunting face swam:; before him, and he struck a driv-l mg blow straight into that sneer.' Ramon crashed back against a| chair that overturned with a thud." Then Pearl John grasped Bob's'- arms from behind and, after al few minutes' tussle, the two had* him securely held. Snatching aL long silken cord that held backll a curtain, Pearl John looped ifil about Bob's wrists. Another cordfl quickly tied his ankles and the,! next minute Bob was being car,-? I ricd to his room where he \y*f thrown on (he bed. As de Fores' fumbled wilh the key to lock thP oom Bob raised his head' to L peak but a quick blow from Ra-fl non's fist knocked him back.

He sat up and, as he did so, tho evered cords dropped to thi loor. Someone had. come in' hrough the window and cut hisjl londs while he lay unconscious.'I But \vljO? Bob did not debate?! his question long, but got to hisfl :cct and tried to think what heT must do next. .' f Jf ho could escape from the louse there might be a chancd hat he would meet up with somc-| one on the road down the canyonr who might help him.
