All war agencies? are agreed that production will be benefited if you will lake a fen dav.s off lo rcsl, relax and refresh youibclf menially and physically. lUit traditional vacations are oui, hccansv neither transportation nor resort facilities are capable of handling them. So both for your own sake and that of the country, you should start.early to find out what, lliitt is possible, will do yon the most good. Touring vacations obviously are impossible. Yon will 1)0 sorry if you think you can go to some distant resort by {rain or plane, without sulfeving more than llic change will compensate for. You can't even ligure on staying home iiml driving to .shore, golf links «nd picnic grounds every day. One good lip is lo avoid Ihe most popular vacation periods, lo try lo find some resort within 50 miles of home, and Own lo uctllu down there, and really rcsl. •Honor System There is every indication that Ol'A Administrator, Brown's honor .system for non-csseutial molorisl.s /has mil 'worked, in (lie east, at least—and that is loo bad, because it leaves any realisr tic administration with no option except to get tough. 1 ! Government ,'inalysis of traffic rec- • ords luis con Tinned what eye-witness reports had disclosed. Sunday traffic fell off enormously while there was a ban on pleasure driving. As soon as the honor syslem was substituted in March, Sunday traffic rose ,lo approximately its former level, notwithstanding llic yinallcr lia.sic ration of gasoline now available. The Public HoatLs Administration survey relied upon automatic counters and payment of bridge and parkway lolls. Tliiwe cast no light upon the accompanying evil of ;i return to over- J'iisl driving. The M-mile .speed limit, designed to save bolh gasoline and , tires—and also to save lives and limbs where cars are riding on tires rccapper with .salvaged rubber—has become an unfunny joho. ] * * • Anybody silly enough lo play ball by poking along at ;!!"> mile.s is made to look like a fool or a prig. One reason for this—not llic only 'reason, and perhaps not the best, but certainly one—is a. comfortable feeling on the purl of the public?thal 'tlio: rubber•crisi.s i.s nearly-. over, that we have climbed over the hump, and that we can expect new lircs soon. 'The answers are that we can not expect new (ires for non-c.ssenliiU driving before the latter half of .19-I-1, if then, and Ihiil we can not count upon much gasoline and fuel oil for the cast imtil (ho projected invasion of the European continent is completed. * » * These answers are being given, piecemeal and timidly, Jjul any beneficial effect they might have is destroyed by confusing irresponsible counter-statements from persons who will not trouble to think Ihe situation through. There i.s a real danger Ilial the Ol'A will be driven back io the unpleasant enforcement methods from which il tried to relieve the motoring public. The only out would be for motorists generally lo realize (hat (hey are injuring both I lie war efl'prl and i.| lt .j v own selfish interests when they waste rubber, and gasoline, driving I'or pleasure and driving beyond the economical oo-milc speed limit.

He saw the slender form of Allison sleeping there. Her short hair was tousled and her face looked sfartlingly white. He crossed the room quietly and, lay- Ing a hand on her shoul.ler, shook her gently. She sat up abruptly, and let out a small cry. "It's all right," Barry said in a low tone. "It's me, Barry." Allison rubbed her eyes like a frightened child trying to pull herself back to realities. "Barry," she said thickly. "But how'd you ever find this place?" "Tony got away iroin the guards and came to the camp for me What happened?" "We had just come out of the jungle—it was almost dawn," Allison said breathlessly. "Four men suddenly appeared from nowhere, threw blankets over our heads! lied our hands and brought us here." "It must have been the Quiche chief who is responsible for this," Barry said grimly. Allison suddenly caught hold of Barry's sleeve. "Wait a minute!" she said in a hushed voice. "Where is Tony riow?" "Outside tying up the guards Why?" "Listen!" Frpm- the next room came the sound of footsteps as they paced irealhing rapidly. He llnshcd on lis light and it caught and held in a tall, slender man with a iushy growth of beard covering hit face. His white ducks and hirl were badly soiled. For an nstanl all was deathly still except or the wind in the trees outside. Then, in sudden recognition, Barry cried, "Hall, is that you?" Hall's /ace broke into a wide jrin as ho stepped forward and wrung Barry's hand. forth over the plank back arid , flooring. "Do you hear (hat?" Allison said in a hushed voice. "Yes!" •"I've heard it ever since I've been here but 1 thought it was , Tony being held in that next room!" ' "Then there's someone else being held, prisoner here!" Barry said slowly.

Allison stood quietly at Barry's :lbow. He glanced down at her and trailed, 'This is Jeff Hall, Miss Topping." "The man your company sent down firsl lo line up the inininy righls?" gasped Allison. "Thai's me," said Hall bitterly. 'I was only in Guatemala 10 days when I landed in Ibis place." 'You dicln'l over reach Ihe Quiche village?" Barry asked. "I was on my wuy (here when was ambushed and brought here." Barry said thoughtfully, "Can .he Quiches he behind all Uiis?" "I thought so al firsl," Hall answered soberly. "I5ut .since then I've changed my mind, i'vc had plenty of time lo lliink, you know." "Then what is the answer?" "I Ihtnk there's somebody a lol more worldly than this primitive Indian tribe behind the whole scheme. Every night as I've lain here on my col I've heard the rumble of cart wheels going up and down the slope. I think they're working some of llic cinnabar mines and hauling the ore lo a hidden smelling place near the coast. ' Barry stared at him. "You're kidding! "Neither kidding nor drunk " retorted Hall. Barry Ihought rapidly. "If (hat's true it isn't the Quiches!" lie cried "They don't give a rap for money. But where do you supirasc they're selling their quicksilver? Government reports show that \vi aren't getting any from, dowi here." "The Axis nations need it as badly as we do, you know," Hal: said quietly.

The night was inky ilack and the going was rough. : ony threaded his way, slowly, •auliously, and the rest followed. ' I'he distant rumble grew slowly more distinct.

When Ihe scene unfolded before (hem Ihey could plainly sec a dozen or more Indians digging out the precious ore. Tony was pointing again and saying excitedly, ; "They're all Quiches but Iwo!"
