Dunw Fortune .S//7/ Favors frii-^iglucd For '25 yews Colonul Lewis \V;illa-r bogged ills friends mid noi^liliuvs I" put their money into sin invent ion ho had bought. Walker luul money, and put il into producing the patented article. His fortune withered away. He inherited some more money, and sent thai alter the first. Still thu thins; didn't pay out. Walker was certain it was a yond thing. He plciidcil with everyone ho knew "who had money to put .some of it into development of hi.s project. Nearly all of them refused. The lh.ii"! 1 wasn't pnielical, people wouldn't want it, you couldn't make it clicn|)!y enough, a and one excuses instantly came to tlic minds of the reluctant friends who were too careful of their money to throw any of it into "wildcat" schemes. The invention V Just a silly thing called the "hooklcss fastener'' which Colonel Walker had seen at the World's Fair in Chicago in 1803. Walker believed in it, became it partner with the inventor, finally bought him out after repeated attempts to manufacture and sell the "bookless fasteners" had failed. There was nothing hut failure for more than 20 years. The people's original skepticism was fortified by these repeated failures. Today's versions of the "huolilrw; fastener" are commonly called xippers, and tinder various- trade names;, you find them on every kind of garment, front overshoe's fo .scanties. During the last 30 years the contrivance found the place Colonel Walker had envisaged all down through those discouraging years. He died, a little while ago, a rich man. His home town of Meaiiville, I'a., has never fell the depression, for the zipper factory of Colonel Walker has been' growing steadily ail through those years, providing always more and better jobs even in the days when so many communities were hard hit. How many Colonel Walkers are there today, walking the streets with ideas that will incidentally make them rich, but, more important, will provide more communities wit], new ami growing industries? How many moneyed people; arc there with the fort'-sighf. and the willingness to take a chance on the new and untried '! Nobody knows. Hut on thai coin- OUTOUK WAY Initiation of people with ideas and people with money and nerve to back them, will depend the speed with which _we climb out of today's depressed" conditions. The few people who "strung along" with Colonel Walker, like the original backers of Henry Kord, made a lot of money and performed a socially useful service. They are llic kind of people we need no desperately today. Gw.serre There lias just hoen a conviction of l(i oil companies and !!() of their executives for violation of the anti-trust laws. They fixed {he price of gasoline, a jury found, and that meant there was no competition between them, 'file inference is that they must compete. Very well. Now right on the heels of that dictum comes a meeting of executives from 10 oil-producing states to consider what is to he done about a report on petroleum reserve, 1 *. This report, by Alex \V. McCoy of Pouca City, Okla,, indicates thai u',000,000,- 000 IwiTels of oil will have to lie discovered in I he next live .wars to balance .supply with demand in I!M5. Governor Tingley of New Mexico sees f>0- ccn( gasoline within eight years unless strictest conservation is practiced. This makes the competition situation even more complex, for Ibe federal government is insisting on competition, while state governments, alarmed, are debuting joint state action to regulate production and stabi- lise prices. That is generally regarded as necessary to intelligent conservation. To compote and conserve at the same time, that is the problem.

This had been the dinner ilicy had liwd together since their anniversary. It was the customary ali'air, :;!i!Y and silent, Connie al OIK- cud of Hie lotiji nai'ro'iV lablc, liioL al the otlicv, waited uputi by liie U'.'u iinpeccabiu English hulk-it. "Suppose v.'c have colfce in the dniwijij; room— by ourselves," lie suggested, crumpling up his niip- I'.in. "I think Mrs. Uardcsty can pour, without any assistwnct 1 ," lie added to Graevcs and benson. Since this railed Connie noted- ly she did not (ilVet 1 any objection. In 1 1 ic diawin;! room, she sat down on a divan near the (ire, indicated that Grieves ini^til -place the cot- fee service oil the ln'.v table before her. She knew dial the looked very lovely and desirable with Ihc UrcliLshl playing on her golden hair, accenting the curve of her checks, Ihe violet shadow's of her eyes, She wore a loose Howing hostess gown of dark wine velvet, its long sleeve:; banded ill rich dark fur. It was a costume lhat Rvel had said he liked, heller p luips lhan any olher. Which, incongruously, since she; told herself she no longer cared what ho likrd, was htr reason loir having worn it. A :•> ft " 1 HAVE something lo tell you," Bret said, spoa!;ins slowly, choosing his words. "Tin:; .seoms as :>oo;l an opportunity as any." "Thai's odd," Connie laughed, rhruggcci her shoulders. "1 have .something lo lei! yon this evening, foil." Shtj hr.n'Jcd him his cup of coffee. • "Perhaps 1 hail belter lell you lirsi. Wilh no 'beating sibuul Iho bush,' as tho. , r! goes." ''iVrliap:; you had," lie answered gravely. He set the cup down, not lasting ils contents. Connie said. "I'm going away— tonight. With Rodney Brandon." J5rcl difl not answer. ]Ic picked up his cup now, drank slowly. "Haven't yon anything lo say?" Connie demanded. Bret put down his coffee. "What is there for me to say?" he asked. "Surely you don't expect, me lo object, singe a row? Thai would not ho modern." "I'm glad you've decided to he j liave tli.-it way—at lasf," Connie said. "Of course, after you divorce me, Hodncy and 1 shall most probably marry." "Hut I have no intentions of divorcing you," Bret returned quietly. "I imagine you'll change your mind," Connie said. "After all, it will be Ihe only decent thing you can do, lo divorce me." "You seem to forget," Bret said, 'lhat I don't happen to believe in divorce, or want one. I married you, intending lo stay married to 1 realized I was taking the risk that it might nol lurn oul too well; you realized that, loo. But in spite of everything we were married. As for my changing my mind, let me assure you, lhat no matter what you do—how many men you run away with—1 shall nol divorce you." "Thai's not very modern—or civilized!" never pretended lo be cither one." "Von mean you'd let me go off with Rodney, and yet you would not give me my freedom?" Bret got up, look a turn aboul the room, came back to stand in front of her. "illy dear," he said, "you sire always talking about freedom. That was whsit you slarlecl out lo seek, when I lirsl met you. That is what you think yon want now. You don't know that it is something nol found by seeking: it is something within not be moved from the course ha •' hud chosen? After their first quar-v rcl, in lhat dingy little hotel of^i their first honeymoon, when she had thrown herself into his arms,-' sobbing, she had known then that the day would come when tears or soft lips—or even his love for her, —would not move Ijitn. Wasn't • that why she had loved him?—for this strength in liim, this stern stability—because he had been; different in this from any man! she ever had known. j She knew, looking at him now, thai Bret meant what he had f;<ld.i lie would not divorce her, no ms'-Bf, ler what she did. There rlid i\i6t ;:ecm much poinl in running away wilh Rodney under these circum-' stances! : "We can't go on iiiis way," Con-, nie said. "Surely you sec that? Despising each other, living like, strangers. Whal if i told you that 1 love Rodney? Thai I know now, I have always loved him?" : She saw that fine while linej iring around Bret's mouth, the pain that leaped inlo his eyes for ' an unguarded moment. He said, "I shouldn't believe you." "But I'm telling you (hat it's Iruc." She had to hurl him, as much as she could. There was no oilier way. Even though this was, a deliberate, cruel lie that she told him. i "Then," lie said, speaking slowly,' again, carefully, "f shall not tellj you—what I intended telling you' tills evening. Perhaps it's just asi | well that you told me first." He' bowed, as though he were saying' a farewell—si farewell lhat was to';,! .Jl_l-LVlll^, il IS iUJIl^LIILJ]^ W Jill I 11 1 if ^ . .. one's self. The only freedom that '^l °J.' n '°" g '. lo " g tim0 ' mailers. had il for awhile," he went on, his dark face grim and serious. "I let you lake il away from me, But I've found il—or myself, ralhci-', again. You can not find it, either, by running away, first from one man, then another, from one place lo the next. You will have to look within your own heart if yon really wish lo find it." "I didn't ask you to preach to subject," Connie that I shall not divorce you, or let you divorce me, under any circumstances." His eyes met hers; they seemed devoid of emotion, but there was no mistaking the firm determination in their depths. "f believe," he added, almost flenllj-, "that you know me well enough, by now, to realize thai I shall not change my mind." , * * * ' WASN'T that what she first had *' thought about him: lhat here was a man who knew what he believed lo be right, and who would me upon any stated coldly.

Now—lhat I can keep you—when|"-| you no longer lo\'e me." j "You mean ..." Connie's hand), flew io her breast,-her heart was''I beating so furiously; she must not let him know it. "You mean, then; (hat if f go with Rodney you won't try to slop me? You'll give me the divorce?" f He bowed again, from Ihe hips, ; low. His face was set in that stern,' unyielding look. "That won't be: necessary," he said. "You may gel your divorce, as you like, without going away. I am going' away. That was what I meant to tell you." j Before she. could speak, he;'| turned on his heel, strode out of the room, leaving her alone, her',. | heart no longer Beating madly, bull filled with an emptiness such as' she had never dreamed exislc.d, such an aching despair and ' lured yearning.
