(UP I — The Supreme Court yesterday agreed to rule on the constitutionality of the Taft-Hnrtley Law's ban on political expenditures by labor unions. . Tile Court announced it will decide tlie legality of the government's Indictment of the CIO for endorsing a candidate in a special Congressional Election at Baltimore last July. j It wa.s the first test case to rench . the high court on any phase of the Taft-Hartley Law. The court ordered oral arguments to start April 26. This means there will not be a decision until at least May. Both the government and the CIO are pushing for a speedy settlement of the Constitutionality of the poltlcs ban. They want the ta- sjisettled well In advance o! thla 5>Kr« elections. The court agreed to hear the case just four days after the Justice Department filed an appeal from a ruling here by Federal Judge Ben Mooi-e than the ban is unconstitutional. Moore held that, the challenged section of the labor !»«• violates free speech, freedom ot the press and freedom of assembly. The CIO deliberately invited » legal test of the ben when CIO President Philip Murray wrote an editorial in the CIO News endorsing Democrat Edward Garmatz, the successful candidate In the Baltimore District during the political campaign. - "Would it not be better to prevent these losses by strict law enforcement?" p , r Jt.

She stood there by the dresser, rigidly, her slim body Tense and taut, and looked at the tilings she held in her hands. She didn't believe It. They weren't there. She wasn't seeing them. She closed her eyes strickenly but when she opened them nothing had changed. The—the things —were still in Rush's leather case. RUSH'S! She put out a tentative ringer .ind touched the knife, the lock. The lock from the grandfather clock. It was twisted now and bent and everyone might not know it for what it was but Ann had opened the clock for too many years not to recognize it immediately. The key was in the lock —or had been—but it had snapped oft in the crash so that only an uneven jagged piece of metal stuck out from the bent keyhole. But the clock had been locked. The key had been turned. It was still turned. And the lock was so bent, so twisted, that it could not have been done after the clock had fallen. That undoubtedly explained why it was here, concealed from prying eyes, curioub eyes, eyes that might belong to Snm Standing ... or to Ann Forrester. She closed the case and replacec it in the drawer. She closed the drawer a'nd.walked away from it She walked stiffly into the bathroom and was at once violently sick to her stomach. And before she had managed to regain contro of herself, Rush wa« back. She looked up to see -him regarding her from the doorway. He said quietly, "What's th< matter, Ann?" She motioned feebly for him t< go away But he relused. He stoo< where he was, making no motion toward her, but staying there.

It was a latne ixcnse bul it was the best she onld manage. • • • '" YOU'VE done too much today." He came over, held her close, ookcd into the mirror at her pale "ace that was damp now with iweut. If he felt the sudden tiylil- •*«mg of her body at his nearness he ignored it and went on talking. "These days at the Lake will be ;ood for you. Iron out all the kinks. It's all right with Enos and Laurie. They're coming down n a few minutes. Think it's safe .o leave them here? Laurie and your old beau?" Enos, strangely, still remained at Tophill. "Oh, Rush!" "I was only kidding. I told them we were about ready to go." She clung to Uie porcelain washbowl. In the mirror her eyes met his. "Rush, I'm not sure—do you think—" "Sure. You'll be.fine.

The same notes over am over until she thought she couldn' bear the endless,repetition. An then she realized, dully, that Uusl was whistling;, "After You've Gone." Somehow she knew arguin would avail her nothing. In an intuitive flash she saw that U sh were to save herself she had t go with him. Docilely.

This is H. she Ihoushl frantically, Ins i.s it and what am 1 doing? ual going along without opening ly mouth? But if she .should start jcream- ng, hurling accusations again, not right and left this time, but quarely inlo Rush's handsome 'ace, what would happen?

No, it was better to go along, without protest, without argument, as though she were happy •md pleased about the whole thing. If she could keep Hush believing .hat, if she could allay any suspicion of her. then she might have a chance. When they stopped for groceries, or for gasoline—they might even have a Hat tire— She had to reach Sain Blinding—he was her only hope. Before she knew it they were on the front porch and everyone was being merry and Eno« said shouldn't they have rice to throw and the car wns ready in the driveway. Then they were In Ihe car and Rush was stepping on the starter and the car began to roll down the driveway and such a tremendous wave of panic broke over Ann that she thought she couldn't stand it. "Good going, darling." Rush said, turning his head to smile at her. '*! wasn't sure you'd make it. You're a good girl, Ann." She made herself turn and smile at him. She hoped it looked like olher smiles she'd given him in the past. It felt like a grimace stretching her face.
