Industry As Willing to Bet on Amiil all of Diis tulle of economic depression and flmincin] difl'cnlty, there is always the danger thai Iho nation may lose sight of the brighter side of the picture. And there is it brighter side— burn not of mere wishful thinking or Polly- iinna optimism, but of cold figures revealing the extent to which industry and business have faith in the future. In the realm of plant construction alone, just six of Iho many proposed plans of expansion add tip to the imposing total of newly ?300,00(>,000 which is being .spent or will be spent during 1938. E. 1. <lu I'ont de Nemours & Co., one, of the nation's great industrial concerns, has announced plans to spend $38,000,000 on new construction dur- .inj? the coming year. The Aluminum Company of America is going ahead with a §26,000,000 expansion program begun in 1037 anil carried over into the new year, and announces it will maintain production schedules regardless of Iho volume of orders. Republic Steel Corporation is proceeding with work on its new $15,000,000 plant in Cleveland, undismayed by Hie fact that the national steel production rate right now is at the lowest level in years. Industrial Rayon Corporation is planning to open a new ? 12,000,000 plant (in Gainesville, 0., . in JuircV and recently announced plans to build jtnolli- ' or '15,000,000-1)01111(1 capacity factory to cost between ?7,000,000 and 810,000,000. The Ford Motor Cpmpany is in the midst of a building and expansion program which eventoally will cost ?<10,- 000,000. Floyd L. Carlisle, chairman of Consolidated Edison Company of New York, recently announced that his public utility would undertake an expansion and building program to cost ap- proy imatcly .? 1 1 2,000,000. Many other companies arc planning smaller additions to plant or equipment. And in addition, a recent .survey made from Washington showed that construction and modernization of such buildings as apartment houses, factories and office structures will lo- ta! §68,000,000 for the entire country during 1938. All of this does not even mention the OUT OUK. WAY millions of dollars being spent by business and industry in developing such fields as pre-fabricated housing, trans- Atlanlic and other airplane service, facsimile broadcasting by radio, and others. Lumped together, the evidence seems conclusive that the nation's businessmen, although perhaps none too pleased by present conditions, have not lost confidence in the future. I firing Families Hollywood thought it very funny when Paramount 1'icluros had to hire an entire family in order to sign up Simitna Asmara, a Malayan jungle girl, to play the lead in a forthcoming film. But American voters arc hiring whole families all (he time in order to get, I lie services of one man. In I (KM, -M int'tnliers of the U, S. House of Keprc'scntatives hired as- .sislilints or clerks of tlic same family name. Jn l!):!5, the number wiw 37; in 10:iG, ;M; and in 1037, 25. The lime n bill was proposed to prevent use of the annual $2,200,OCO clerk-hire appropriation for congressmen's relatives, it was shouted down with a lusty "No!" 1'aramounl is just a copy-cut.

' CHAPTER IX "JHEY had skidded into a ditch, facing Hie bank, which was fortunate. At flic other side of the road there was a sheer drop of more than a thousand feet. "Even Ibis is bad enough," Bret said! "If only you could drive . . ." "But I can!" "You can!" Apparently he had not counted on such good fortune. "Do you suppose; you eould hack up on to (he road, if I stand outside and give directions?" She said she could do her best. She felt she could do anything, with him to guide her. Without ftirllior delay, she slipped into the driver's seat as Bret jjot out. "Don't slam on the brakes too quickly!" Bret warned. "Do exactly as I tell you. Remember that drop on ihe left— I don't know," he shook his head, "maybe I ought not lo let you attempt it." Her eyes met his. There was no hesitancy or tear in llicm. "Didn't I tell you I'm not afraid, Bret ir.-n-dcsty? You'd let me try it if I were ;i man, wouldn't you?" "That's just it . . ." '•That is it exactly! We're not Koing lo park here all night just irenuse I happened to have been >orn a lady!" Her laugh was .-is say as lliough she would not be laking her very life in her. small bands in another moment. "Okay," he agreed shortly; but die did not miss the flash of ud- niralion in hjs dark eyes. "Throw icr into reverse — easy, remember! Stop (he second I shout out ill you —and don't forget the emergency!" next few moments were ones Connie was never to forget; moments during which, ears strained for Bret's directions, she shitted gears, twisted and turned with all her young strength, kept a steady nerve as well as her wits ;ibout her. But she managed lo back on to the road at last. Climbing in beside her, Bret rankly 'mopped his forehead in relief. "I wouldn't want to live Ihrough that every day!" ho told iier. "But I do want to do something. Pay my respects to n very gallant lady — a game little sport." Connie had received many compliments from many men, but none had ever pleased her quite so much. Then, once more they were on their way. When they reached their des- Unation it was long past midnight. The village was asleep under its blanket o£ snow, its litlle group of houses nestling close. High on a hill the tall steeple of ils little white church rose against the mountains, keeping watch over all. * * * 'THIS was where Katie Blyn, who had been Constance Corby, was lo live and work, dream and play; Ihis where she was lo try her wings, find that freedom so long sought. 'Like it?" Bret asked, at her side. He seemed to sense her mood, almost her thoughts. "It may not appear Very grand—unless you have the seeing eye. But you'll find it friendly and kind and simple. I hope," he added with those same qualities, "you will find much more than that. Maybe your heart's desire!" They had pulled up now in front Of a square brick^house that sat well hack on the Main Street. Its walls were almost complelely covered with ivy lliat still clasped its green leaves; its wide porch was supported by tall colonial columns; over the door was an exquisite fanlight, delicately wrought. A row of stately elms Jlankcd Die crumbling walk. "Why, this house must be over a hundred years old!" Connie exclaimed. "It must have been a perfectly lovely house in its day." "Slish!!" Bret put a linger to his lips. They had come through the gate; he placed her bag on the steps. "It still is, my dear young lady! Aunt Bertha—as I iold you everyone calls her—she thinks it the finest mansion in the whole country-side, I'll have you understand. And, one other thing," bis eyes twinkled warningly, "you will be her guest. No West .Virginia lady ever takes in boarders, or accepts the smallest charity, you know." "I'll not forget," Connie promised. They could hear movement inside the house now; a bolt shot back; the big door opened. A woman peered out, holding high a candelabrum; her head was wrapped in a lacy cap; her huge person enveloped in a faded old flannel robe. "Well, vx\\," her face fairly beamed, "if it isn't Breton. And someone else with you? That's nice. Come in, come in!" * * * CHE might have been clothed in the finest raiment, receiving royalty, her manner was so warm and hospitable, so dignified and sincere. Bret performed lions; explained the delay that caused them to arrive so late, and that Miss Blyn was lo help in Ihe camp office. He said ho hoped she would find (hat sho could lake Miss Blyn in, and make her feel at home. "As if a friend of yours would not be heartily welcome!" There was reproach in the small, merry eyes; they rested on him with motherly affeclion. "That is more lhan enough for me. I'd be right happy to have you, as my guest, Miss Blyn. I'll have Eloise show you to the soulh room; you'll find it the most pleasant. And if you'd / like to wash up, my boy, I'll «ee' ' what I can do, meantime, about n bit of something warm. You bolh must be famished!" "No need to bother!" Bret y>ro- lesled. "I'll go on over lo Ihe hotel; see if they've still held my same room ..." "You'll do no such thing!" Mrs. Parson reproved him. She acted as (bough being disturbed at midnight, and preparing a bile to eat for her guests, was an ordinary occurrence. A girl had come down the stairs as far us the landing. She, too, wore a faded, plain wrapper; but she was a very prelty girl. Connie had never seen such hair. It Imng, like a cloak of glory, nearly lo her waist; it was the color ot burnished copper. "Come on down, Eloise," her moilicr called. "It's Bret, come home. I reckon you all won't be sorry to hear that!" Her voice held a teasing note; her chins shook with suppressed laughter. "He's brought a friend— which should please you as well, since (here are few girls your own age and kind to make friends wiili . . . Come on down. Bid them bolh welcome." The girl came down, though somewhat reluctantly. She started lo hold out a slim hand toward Brel, but he laughed, bent his head, gave her cheek a brief caress. "Why so formal!" be- cbided. "I don't believe you're one bit glad I'm back." Then to Con- ' nie: "Eloise and I grew up together; she's practically the same as my own sister. As Aunt Bertha said I, too, hope you girls will become great friends." Connie extended a hand; (lit; girl accepted ii, murmured a quid greeting. But there was no wet- cone in her face, not much friend-- liness. Connie knew the reason. This was the girl whose heart would have been broken, as the old mountain woman had said, had Bret .HardestV; brought 1 home 'a •• ' bride.

Stauffcr, wife ol a professor of ecology at the University of Minnesota.
