"Well," his visitor suggested, "lie could order a eai 1 of perishable fruit, or • vegetables given precedence over everything else." "But," protested the President (nil this, of course, is in paraphrase, bc- , cause Hie President, • is not, permitted "• /to, speak in quotation marks) "that '; might interfere with the transportation of planes, tanks and miim'.tions' • needed in a hurry on a fighting front." The visitor must have been squelched. f[e never had thought of thai. But the President did, and he isn't going to fall foi the "absurd" suggestion of Congi essional leaders that one man bo x givfch v complete supervision over all lood pioblems • • * . It's loo bad that the President lutd- to, pick this paiticular- visitor to quote. Theie must have been others (he samu day—maybe Senator George of Georgia ( or Senator McNary-of 'Oregon (Republican)—who would have fauggested that a "Food O,ar" at least could have tunneled the-conflicting directives of nine unintegrated agencies into a common pool so policy, wise 01 foolish, at least' would be coordinated and comprehensible. Ovei simplification of many abstruse governmental pioblems is a ycry'effec- tive political device, until it lias been • done so often that every begins looking in the woodpile for an Ethiopian.

Less Pood Ncxl Year '. New 'York' state's Emergency Pood 'Commission has rpcommcndcd lo Gov!- ernor Dewcy the snbstilulion of sproiil- ', ed spy beans for meat, as a war diet. •', Why? Because we do not have enough ; grain for both humans and animals, ; so the commission believes that much of the animal population will have lo be liquidated, and this will result in increased shortage of milk, eggs, butter, lard and meat. • Herbert Hoover,, who made his international reputation as an expert on wartime food problems, predicts a 10 to 15 per cent shortage in animal feed (luring (lie next, year, because 38 million arable acres arc out of production as contrasted with 1!)<12. We think we are facing shortage're- alities now, when store shelves and refrigerators cannot provide even the limited quantities of many items which rationing is designed lo assure for each of us. Hul the only reason we gel even what we do is because, by the grace of Cod and the weal her man, 1!M!J was a bumper year. If it had been a poor crop year, or even normal, the granary of democracy would look as bare i as Mother llubbard's cupboard. U'o are perplexed and bedeviled about I lie food situation because nine federal departments with overlapping jurisdiction either don't know the facts, won't face them or think we can't be trusted with 1 hem—or, jl could be, because they would prefer that we should not draw inferences as to how the food problem has been mishandled. * * * Kul Mr. Hoover points out that in view of the greatest harvest and the 'greatest meal production in history, although only 10 per cent has gone to lend-leasc and rationing is supposed lo have reduced domestic civilian consumption by-iM) per cent, we are-eating up our surpluses and shall have less to cat next winter than we have this summer. Acreage has been slopped up by f> per cent. A bad spring already has wiped out this anticipated advantage. This year's crop probably will be at least .12 per cent, perhaps much more, below the 1 ( >I2 production that. has proved insufficient. * « * "If the statistics are correct,, and I do not challenge them," says Mr. IIoo.v- 1 cr, "then some bureaucracy is strangling the (low of food from the farmer • to Hie housewife." Thai would nol seem overstatement, considering that eight independent bureaus—Agriculture, OP A, I,end-Lease, B. K. W., Army, Navy, Manpower Com- mi.ssion and WPB—must bu brought into agreement before any intelligent action on food can be taken.

They Went upstairs together. I sat there tor some minutes reassuring myself thai whatever Deputy Shaw might suspect ho would never succeed in finding out the truth, and at last rather stiffly I got to my feel and started for the hall. Knlhy coining from the living room with light quick steps caught up with inc on Hie stairs. She put her arm loosely around my waist and we went up together. Tlic door ' to Margaret's room was slightly ajar, and suddenly a high-pi I died voice broke out inside. "I (oil you I won't stay here another night, and yon won't cither. We're all liable to be murdered in our beds." Katliy gasped as if she lia'rl beer suddenly doused ill ice water, and 'as for myself n>y breath oame hard for a moment as it " had been running. I saw Fxlilh Grady whispering to Will in the windov alcove that morning, drawint away from us as it we had llu- plaguc, refusing to eat with us . . . The blond hussy. And \vi had treated her as a guest! With an angry little cry Kalh> turned and slammed into her owi room, and with a shrug I lurnec toward mine. After all I wasn' loo surprised. I had taken tin ; blond woman's measure the firs I day I met her. And then I stopped The door ot Margaret's roon opened widely and Will and Ihc chief deputy camo out inlo Ihi hall. I stared at them coldly Will grew red-faced when he saw me, and stood there twisting hi hat between his hands in an agony of embarrassment. "We won't bo slaying here to -light, Mrs. Kraik. My wife—sh thinks—that is—we're going borne and we're taking Mother with us, 1 HADN'T been prepared for that. It was Margarcl, not Will, vhom Edith Grady bad been pcr- uading to leave Kraiktower. Vlargiircl who hadn't S|>enl a nighl !or 30 years from under my roof. : leaned rather weakly against the door of my room. , "But Margaret—she's ill. She sn't able—" Will blundered on. "We'll be joins in n closed car. The police- nan thinks maybe she'd be safer'' —he stopped abruptly in complete confusion, and shot an angry ;lancc at Shaw beside him. lint Shaw was watching me. Will looked back at me, his blue eyes defensive. "You understand, Mrs. Kvaik, it ain't any of my doings. I don't want ye thinking that I don't Iriist you." Even in my bewilderment I fell sorry for him. It was his svitc and Shaw who were to blai, and Sliaw—I flipped him a glance ot pure venom—should have had more sense than lo believe Edith Grady's silly vaporings. But the deputy was in charge. I swallowed hard, "f understand, Will." Something stuck ir my throat. "You—you will be good to her?" He nodded gravely. The morning after they took Margaret away from my liousc I woke about 7 and fell abominable. My head was splitting and Ihc fact that there was no Margaret now to bring me ho milk and crackers and stand over me lo see that I ate them didn' add to my cheeriness. Thinking of her made my heart nche worse than my head. She hadn't been up and around the house sine Derek's death, but 1 had known she was there, in her room. Nov that closed door opposite mine wa: like a tombstone. Headache or no headache couldn't stand my own thoughts so I got up and dressed and wen downstairs. W ALTER joined mo for break last, but Ictt as soon os h- had ealcii, I went into my studj ind tried to concenirale on my louschold accounts. Clam couldn't :ian.igc all the cleaning in the big louse; I'd have to get someone 0 lake Margaret's place. And as Iways happens when one is de- crmined not to think of some- liing, that turned my thoughts back lo Margaret and I couldn't iry them away. I kept remembering little things ibout her as one does when someone has died. Things like the little >lack shawl thai she wore around icr shoulders winter and summer. 1 suppose her blood was thin. \nyway I could remember hav- i)g seen her without it only once or twice in all Ihc years'I had known her. And she never would liscard it for one of the pretty knitted shoulderetlcs we gave her it Christmas limes. I was only loo glad when Katby Jrowling restlessly around camfl nlo (he study and interrupted my .noughts. She had a book under icr arm, and no makeup on except a dab ot lipstick. Her eyes were too brilliant. She asked about my headache uirt said, "You poor darling. You miss Margaret, don't you? We'll lave to try to make it up lo you." She laid the book down on my desk and reached for a cigaret., The phone rang just then and I answered. The call was tor Knthy, so I handed the receiver lo her. While she lislened her lips curled as if she had billen into an unripe persimmon, "Oh, damn," she said as she hung up. "A wire from George. He's coming down tomorrow." She flung her hands out as it pushing something away from her. • "Kathy," i said bluntly, "Why don't you chuck it?" And I'd have had it out with her then and there but the hall door opened and Connie and Walter barged in. Kathy slid out so quickly she forgot her book. I picked it up later and looked at it. The title was TIME FOR MURDER, nnd the author's name, Clint Mattison. .(To B« Continued),
