What About WAACS And WAVES? What Sort Of Men Are Our Soldiers? These questions have been heard by every one. They arc, to put It bluntly, dumb questions. Our soldiers arc tlic same sort of people as om- American youth and young men-because Ihcy AltK tliese; and almost all of them at that! They arc good, they arc bad, they are Jjxllircrcnl. Moslly. through a long period of propaganda, we kind of Idolize them In a way —but llml doesn't make them any different; they are still just MA, of our American men. Tiicn what about (lie WAACS mid the WAVES? well, the same holds line; they arc our American women. Not wliat women used to be—Ihcy arc modern American women, Hotter? Worse? well, who knows? liul whether belter or worse, they arc still our women, and NO OIPFERENT IN UNIFORM THAN OUT, except thnl they have marc careful training there, IUOIQ careful supervision, and MUCH harder work. "llut l heard—" —"You know they .say—" "Have yon licnrd-7" "ntiiK-buxji-m—"' Yes, we've licard; and yes, we know Ihcy say—. We nlso know that nil such sayings and rumors should correctly close with a -click ol the heels, nn ouUlrelchcd arm uml n Buttmal "Hell;" Women of known bad character are not accepted In these organizations—but, then neither arc women of known bad clianiclcr accepted in our clubs, schools, or colleges—yet In all of these there are the circumspect, the careless, and . even (he daring—the good, the bad and the Indifferent. THESE SAME WOMEN ARE IN OUR COUNTRY'S UNIFORM; lhat you or 1-aiiy of us- slioiild repeat a rumor that would besmirch the honor of that uniform is thoughtless treason. That any of us who are women should do this is double treason-treason against the uniform of our country and treason against our KCX. Certainly there will be isolated cases o[ Indiscretion; I don't personally know ol any and have not personally heard of any except the "propngtmcla type" described above; but, (o <tuole our own editorial of a couple of weeks ago: The WAVES and WAACS "are not God A'Mlghly." A woman must be 21 years old to join the WAVES. If you want to know sort of women .belong, llicn look about you at Hie women 21-year-old and above; vision them witli a little more energy, a little more vitality, a little more ambition, a IHtle more love of country perhaps thun most; add a lot of training; a lot ol discipline; the effect of a lot of daily hard work on diameter, and you'll- know, what sort ol -women make up' our "Women' In Uniform." • Eld yon stop last week and pick up. a soldier boy, ask him about bis folks, and think;' "Such A Fine Fellow, so far away from home; f Just want to do something for him." If you did. that wns fine. Did you sec a lovely young woman In uniform walk down the street last week, and did .von step back a little, stnro curiously and whisper to your companion—maybe snicker a little? If you did that—cspcciully if you yourself are a woman—Mien SHAME! Most of us in Carroll County have seen only a few women In uniform—occasionally al a pa- Irlolic meeting; In a railroad station, a bus station, or some eating place—but, have you noticed the dignified bearing, Hie orderly appearance, the correctness of bchuvlor that always characterizes them? That's training—It's good training. We could sland a little of it for ourselves. —Vida J. Williamson in the Carroll County Democrat, Huntingdon, Tenn. BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURII^ NEWS . TUBSPAY.

She marched up lo Shaw will] her head held high and her eyes Hashing scornfully al him. "Nice work, sheriff," she taunted. "You've built a perfect cast- out of air. And if il was anyone but Gram, I'd tot you get away with it. Sorry lo spoil your climax but—I killed Derek Gracly!" No one seemed able lo say anything. "I killed him, but you'd never have proved it on me. 1 was loo clever foi- you. l destroyed the only evidence you would ever have had against me. Destroyed it yesterday and no one suspected My BLACK COAT, Hie BLACK .COAT with thc bullet hole in the pocket. I carried it out ot here before their very eyes—Grain even saw me and talked lo me in the hall. I took il out on the lake and filled the pockcls with stones and sank it." Shnw waited until she had finished arid then said quietly, his words, deflating her like a pinpricked balloon, "I was wondering if I'd have to take your grandmother to jail before you'd break down and confess." She struggled vainly to regain her self-assurance as he pounded' questions al her. .She had gone to the bank in Listen the morning of the day when Grady was killed, hadn't she?. Yes. She had Iried to cask a check for $5,000 hadn'l she, and the bank had had only $500 in cash on hand? And the cashier bad lold her she couldn't get il until morning even by going (o Middldon, for the banks closed there at noon on Thursdays, taking their half-holiday in midweek instead of on Saturday during the summer, wasn't Ihal right?. Yos. Anrt Derek had gotten pretty nasly, hadn'l he, when :the went back to him with, only $500, for he couldn't wail until morning, the police were too hot on iiis trail? * * * ]£ATHY'S lips opened but no sound came from them, and there was sheer heartbreak • in her eyes. Shaw waited a moment, and when he saw that Kathy wasn't fioing to speak, asked, "What did he do? Threaten you with physical harm?" Kathy wet ) lt? r parched lips. "No. He—lie saw my ring, and he wanted il—and I said I couldn't give it lo him, it was my engagement ring, and then—then lie look il from me. He—he hurt me." She swallowed once. "I had the gun in the pocket of my coat—I had gotten it for him, out of Hie desk in Gram's room, and so—so I shot him." ^ H was at this point thai George Baker got up from his chair with the jerky motion of a jnck-in-the-uox. lie strutted up to Shaw. "See here," he ordered, trying to make his falsetto voice belligerent, "What'.'; Die use of airing all this in public? What if she <itd kill the man? He deserved it, didn't he?" He fumbled at a pocket and drew out his check book. "Just forget all this. I'll pay you anything—anything you say." No price was loo high lo protect thc precious Baker name from any connection with scandal. But George had made a mistake. Shaw didn't even bother to answer thc dapper little banker, just turned a broad shoulder in his face and spoke to Kathy: "Are you ready to go now?" * * * What happened aflcr that was anti-climax. George's splutlerings became abusive . . . somclhing about 'he complete assininity of policemen. Kathy turned toward him. "I'm sorry, George, that I got you into this mess." She looked down at her bare left hand. "I can't give you back your ring—just now— but please understand that our engagement's ended. You're riot to blame for any of this, and it's not fair trial you should suffer." George's face flamed. "What do you take me for? I'm sticking, of course." Of course! The code of the George Bakers never allows them publicly to run out on a womari, * * * " ID so George and Mattison and Waller went along when Shaw look Kalhy away. Mattison giving me an odd look just before he went out the door. • . . Connie stayed behind, obviously thinking it her duty to take care of me. I let her help nic up the slairs, but once there I told her I'd be all right and shut my bedroom door firmly in her face. Then I went to bed and to sleep. I slept straight through until Iho next morning, and woke to find it still dark al 8 o'clock and heard rain pelling against Ih6 window panes. --...: I called Clara and asked her to bring my breakfast upslairs, and I was still eating when Waller came in. He gave me a couple of pieces of bad news fo digest along with my tonst and marmalade. First, he said Kathy would have to stay in jail; There was something in the law which said a person charged with murder couldn't bo released on bail. Then he added that George Baker was flying cast to engage the bcst criminal lawyer available for Kathy's defense. Those were a couple of angles I hadn't counted on. I thought tilings over and as soon as Wall*r left I got up and dressed and wSnt downstairs and called Clint Mattison at (he Collage. I asked him U he'd drive me in to sec Kathy. Thai was thc funny part ot It.' I didn't wait for Mattison to conic looking for me. No, 1 sent'for him! !.-.-. And so I had no one but myself to blame for what happened after that .(To Be Continued) '.
