He wss coming In from above again, but not out ot her range. ' i She heard someone shout behind her', "What arc you doing?" She did not answer. Her brain was focused on Ihc Jap plane. The voice came info lier consciousness again. "Let nic have (hat gun." It was too late. Beth had the Jap where she wanted him. She let him have everything Ihe gun could give—a long, blasting burst that was capable of ripping apart any fighter plane it hit. Beth VMS vaguely cognizant that rxmielhing—it was a burst from the Jap's guns—spattered the Fortress somewhere close to her. If she ever in her life had an inclination to feel fear, now was the time. Suddenly she was in the clutch of a deadly fascination at the scene before her eyes. . The Jap sped toward her, but now his guns were- not spitting. Wax he going to' crash the Fortress? Belh watched him for'the long, long split seconds it took for Ihe Zero lo sweep in closer, closer, closer. . .. Then,:just as he seemed about to smash inlo the biff Amer- lf*n plane, he disappeared. •yilK. Fortress's other 'gunner . pushed Belli aside, not rudely but roughly and hastily.

"You did it. You shot down a Jap Zero figliler!" Beth turned toward tho man on the floor. "We've got to do something for him," she said. Major Jackson reappeared He worked with Belh on the injured man. The copilot was wilh them now and he assumed charge ' n,» , ' now that the fight was over. "Lieutenant Carter, if you'll help us . . ." the copilot beckoned "Yes, sir," Belli replied. She had paused a moment in her task of assisliftf and had looked blanWy at (he man's expressionless face Helping was a lualler of a quarler of an hour's wjl-k, (he reward of which was Hie grin ol a revived gunner. "We got through all right?" he asked. "Got 'cm both," the other gunner said. "Good boy. Good boy. Swell!" "Sorry, Buddy, I can't take all the- credif. Miss . . . Lieutenant Carler here got the second one." "Nothing like having a useless Woman on bourd, is there?" the copilot said. * * * ruiA'DUALLY, the crew ot the Flying Fortress relaxed, tension casing as the men swapped jokes while they checked tho damage to the big ship.

From the air, thi3 bit of land showed no sign of habt-' talion. . , r _, ', Skillfully, the pilot located a f landing field where Beth was certain, just a moment before, that nothing existed except verdant growth. ' "Camouflage," Major Jackson grinned. His glance had taught, the surprise in Belh's wide-open eyes. "It's—it's wonderful," Beth' gasped, looking around now at the' signs of life and activity where only Jungle had appeared as she looked (iown from the sky. "This," Major Jackson said, "i» your new home." • As she slopped from Ihe plane. Belli blinked the brilliant sun- ' light out of her eyes. So this was it. Here she would live. She had (eft the city just a few hours before, but already it seemed a million miles away. ' • Bcfli was taken (o her quarters.' Her room, with (lie luxury of an adjoining balli, wits in the main headquarters building and only a. few doors from Major Jackson's, office. The ofTicc' adjoining liis was given to her for her work. Headquarters, ;i subterranean concrete structure, was approached through a bower of tropical greenery which completely; •hid man's path. ! "Sorry to have to put yoii right on the doorstep ot your job," Major Jackson had said as they" walked over, "but it can't h» helped. I cnn't put you in officers' quarters—you might not feel self- . conscious, Ijut the poor men , would. Your Hying quarters were designed as a lounge for officers on 24-hour duty.
