"That boy and many like him," com, nientcd Lieutenant Krnker, "arc bitter —hitler against those people within the United Stales who have struck and done (hose things which have slowed production of vital war needs." A mortally wounded anti-aircraft crew member slips overboard, so that no time shall be taken from the battle to minister to his comforts. "Yet," says :the Navy officer, "the people at home won't sacrifice a dollar." Exaggerated? Sure. But that is how a lot of lighting Americans feel about it. Inflation C<if> A principal reason behind our seeming inability to "close the inflation gap" by draining oil' some 910,000,000,000 of excels earnings is because this money is nol in possession of a well-to-do minonly. It belongs to the vast political majority, which must not be hurt or offended. The rich arc laxed to the limit already. The well-to-do arc pressed to the wall by taxes and voluntary bond purchases. For both these classes, it has become a problem to pay the monthly bills without sacrificing lifetime savings by liquidating investments. "The poor" have that sixteen billions. It gives them, for the first lime in years, a margin above subsistence, and they aren't anxious to give it up. If there is a "Gestapo," which is,,the. epithctical way of designating a corps of inspectors, it is justified by the utter failuie of a si/able body of eastern motorists to co-opaiate in saving gasoline to win the wai , The desperate straits to .which the east is I educed—the necessity for spieading the pleasure driving ban to Ohio, then to the Carolinas, and perhaps to Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and the Dakotas—is due in part, to-the fact that \\hcn OPAdmiiiistriitor Brow n tried the honor system,' he • found too little honor. Mr.-Brown has been criticized'severe- ly and justly for his unrealistic attempts to please everybody, particularly the politicians. Now he discovers what his predecessor, I eon Henderson, knew: that total war is a v e r y unpleasant business, which requnes sacrifices; IhuL while ' the majoiitj nil!.respond to appeals, a large minority is selfish and self-centered, and has io be whipped inlo line. In a limited way, Mr. Brown has been forced to get tough. He deserves support_ from good citizens, not snide criticism. A Sailor Writes Home Navj Li°ut James Krekcr told the Viigima, Minn , Kiwanis recently about a lettei he censored, written by a sailor somewhere in the far Pacific to his fathei, a coal miner. If the father went on strike, 7 the soil wrote thai he no Maybe It Can Be. Done There was much reluctance in official circles about believing that, there was even an experimental possibility that Henry Kaiser could build the huge plywood cargo planes he proposed, which were and are needed badly. Thanks largely to public pressure, supporting Donald Nelson's willingness to find out, Kaiser was given opportunity to make good. Now lie has produced IG-fool scale models that • prove his point, and has won the right to build full scale planes with eight motors each, capable of carrying (50 tons of cargo.

We went in two cars. Margaret ami Will Grariy and his wife in the limousine driven by Hie faultless John. Waller and Kathy and I in the roadster, Waller driving. Connie pleaded off with a sick headache and went lo bed instead. The services were short. Margaret didn't cry at all. She went up lo Ihc grave on Will's arm and stood looking down at the closed casket a long time, nnd then she turned blindly away. A county car was parked in the drive when we returned, home, and I saw some deputies down in the ravine. They seemed lo be searching for somclhing. Walter went upstairs immediately to see how Connie was. Kathy, Margaret, Will and his wife also disappeared upstairs and I went inlo my study to wail impatiently until the nosy police should leave. I had something to do and nol much time lo do it in for nol even lo s<1ve my immorla 1 soul would I have gone inlo Ihc woods again after dark. The police poked around dowr in Ihc ravine and on Ihe side lawi for a long time. I watched then from the study windows. At la; it dawned upon me that they were looking for the gun—Ihc gun lha had killed Derek. The fine hail liflcd along the back of my neck If they found the gun there woul probably be fingerprints on il And Shaw had had all of us fin Scr-printcd as a matter of routine It was nearly dinner time be fore the officers gave up thci search. * * + THE spookincss ot the n before was gone as 1 crosse the creek and hurried along Ih familiar wood path toward Ih Coltagc. The sun wns still couple ot hours high in the sky. I stopped to reconnoitre \vhe 'I reached.the place where I ha 'hurt my. >mkl«."![es, there_was wislod tree root showing in the enter of the path. That was cvi- cnlly what I had stumbled on in :ic dark. I pushed my way determinedly hrough the bushes and made mir- owing circles around Ihe place, iul I didn't -see anything lo ac- ounl for the light that had been here lasl night. H looked as if ny curiosity was wasted, and then usl as I lurried reluctantly to go >ack lo the palh my eye was aught by a.metallic gleam where me of the long shafts of sunlight lierccd a thick clump of the berry )ricrs. I walked over to the bushes and here was a spade stuck down in hem for concealment. My blood >rei'iiire mounted. I pulled the spado out, gelling my hand scratched in the process, and looked Ihc ground over again I saw a place close to the fallen tree where it looked as it the leaf mold had been recently loosened The way I dug would hi been a revelation lo a WPA. man nncl suddenly a small brown packet came Hying out with the dirt II was a man's wallet. There was worn lettering on the flap ,'D. G.," and inside a thick shea fresh (increased bills, the kind [he bank gives you. I look llv money oul and counled. II wa in bills of $10 and $20; $500 in all Something was still lodged in a corner of Ihe wallet. I shook it A diamond ring came lumbliu into my lap. A. big square dia mond in a platinum setting tha insolently c.-uight the sunlight an flashed it back in streaks of fire I'picked it np with clammy fin gers. It was Kalliy's diamond! • * * I T was true, then, whal I ha guessed lasl nighl, I reflccte as I unfastened the pin at the nee 6f my black sheer dress an slipixxl the wallel down in m bosom next to my skin. 1 had known that the nole Sha\ hud found in Connie's room, an which led to her .mistaken con £essisn,_had been sent to Kalli ristead of Connie. That was fhs iscovery I had made as I thought ic situation over. Derek hadl riltcn: "I'm in the old play ave." That would have meaning nly to Kathy. It was Kathy who ad played there with him. Conic would know nothing about it. Then I had spent the rest'of the ight wondering when and how lonnie had come into possession f the note. If Connie had inter- cptcd the note before it reached <alhy there was the probability hat Kalliy knew nothing about )erek hiding in the ravine. But knew now that that was out. Kathy had seen Derek. She had ;iven him the money and her ing. As to why somebody had ntcr removed these valuables 'r'om Derek's. body and. htdderi hern in the woods, I hadn't th* loggicst notion. , ' Aside from thai mysteuous angle, Ihe facts as I knew or could reasonably guess them began to fall into a logical sequence of events. Confiic had learned some- v about the.note from Derek, and she had decided to see him lierself and send him away before he could cause another family scandal. That explained the bitter quarrel between the girls. And now I could guess, to>, ' where Kathy had been going that morning—the morning of the diy ive found Derek—when she hid almost run over Clint Msttison and me in the lower hall. Sht must have been on her way to the bank lo get Ihis money for Derek. And Deputy Shaw must know it, too. That was why hi had asked her repeatedly it she had slopped any place in 1h« village except at the gas stalion . . , and why he iiad looked at her so peculiarly when she denied it. The chief deputy was no fool. He could put two and two together, and there was every chance in the world Ihat he woulc' add it up to four.
