His embarrassment came when he lost a four-block chase to one of the city's newest police officers, one of six women hired primarily fov issuing parking tickets in the downtown business district. First the woman officer, Mildred Jones, pushed him down and after he got up. chased him four blocks -until a scout car with two policemen caught them and made the arrest. "I was just making sure he didn't get away," she said. He was given a $12 fine by Police Judge Mike Foster. Indian Juke Box WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. W1 — It I sounded as If the Navajos were" staging a .ceremony inside their cafe here. But investigation showed the drums and chants were coming from a juke box. Plenty of other tribal tunes were on tap, too, competing successfully with the usual assortment of platters. MAYFLOWER'S FLAGS The Union Jack, also known a the King's Colors, flew from the mainmast of the Mayflower,' which brought the Pilgrims to Plymouth in 1620, while the Cross of St. George was displayed from the foremast of the vessel.

He dozed, hiS back against the house wall, and roused fitfully to contemplate Kaui's relationship tc him. Kau! was a flrst rate man and a prime sailor in" his fashion. The missionaries on Mangaia Jiad nm a good schooner and Kaui had learned an imrnense amount of practical seamanship with them. Kaui had shown his skill a number of times while the ship had been careened and repaired here, and he was able to lead, explain wha.t he wanted done to other men without loss of patience. He could make a right smart watch olflcer out of Kaui, and homeward - bound he'd h a v e •want of several more of his clio. Mr. Bothwick was still up to snuff; he'd turned to in style once old Lamed had made the move to pull the crew aboard for the careening. But just one mate wasn't anything like sufficient., and among the rest of the lads there was nobody he could pick for the task. So, take Kaui. Up till the day the ship was ready for sea, the work would probably go along all right. All hands had joined it, and it was a lot like a barn-raising back home. The women had come out aboard, and of course the youngsters, and the able-bodied men, and they'd scraped the hull and rifigcd stages and with Mr. Bothwick to oversee them hod tended the lilies and anchors, even hp''iod to set up the rigging. He hud given old Mata'ora one of the whale boats, fully equipped, nnd two barrels" of prime oil for, and the people were very hnnpy. Caleb Finnic 1 * desertion wasn t fo:-gotton by the crew. Often at night here 6n the atoll he had henrd them talklnR about It. A cciiple of them no doubt bad the BY ROBERT CARSE same hankering. Right on sailing day when the time for parting actually came would be the moment Let the women start to weep and ship, home, duty and articles could come out pretty small. Alfy was the one he'd have to watch in particular. Since the night rounding up on the Horn, Alfy had held the conception that he was fully a man. He had a bit of hair on his chest now, and his voice had deepened, his muscles broadened, and his girl was wildly in love with him. It had taken Lamed to pique his pride to get him aboard to work "Done all right enough off the cape, Alfy," Larned had told him. "Been passin' . for sailor-man since. How about now? Same ship, and some couple o' fellers got to sail her home." - * * • ALFY was unable to refuse. He knew Larned's record, the years in the British prison hulks, the sea, record in ship after ship Alfy told himself in this moment, Naish thought, that if he was a sailor he must prove it to Larned. "I ain't the one to slack off from such," Alfy said. There were possibly half a dozen of the young atoll men whom he could muster along into the crew with Kaui, Najsh thought. If Alfy and some of the others of the crew did desert at the last moment, it would be necessary. Yet he'd rather sail short-handed with none of the Polynesians aboard except Kaui. He feared the weather off the Horn. H would be bad enough for Kaui, and in all fact downright miserable for himself and the rest of Northern blood. He shuddered sllf'itly, sitting In the moist warmth of the breeze, and got up and went into his house, drew on his shirt and pulled the tnpn sleeping r»be over him. He didn't like the tdei. of the Horn passage this sun had gone a long way into hit vein*. Kaui was squatting outside the door with a bowl of poi-poi when he awoke. He went out and wordlessly shared it. Kaui, he had decided, must speak first. :1 You've made up your mind?" Kaui said when the food was finished. "Not entirely," Naish said. 'I'm not too certain you should go with the ship." 'Why?" Kaui sat tensely, his eyes narrowed. 'You've told me that you didn't like it on Mangaia. Well, in my country there's a lot of folks like the missionaries. And all hands wear pants." 'But I understand yours is a big country," Kaui said. "If a m doesn't like one part, he can move to another, even to where he can take off his pants. But I don't joke any more. . . . For that right no\v I have no feeling, Jered. This place is too small. When the sons of Mata'ora get ready, they can all but push me off it. Or I would end up working for them. I have to get out, and I'd like to go aboard your ship. Say no to me and I'll take my canoe and sail to the Western island*,. Mata'ora's sons can take what little has been mine here. I speak, plain?" * * • "YOU do," Naish said. He ran fingers along his brow, still a bit hesitant. "It'll be cold, Kaui. There will be plenty of hard work and danger." Kaui smiled. "I'll go," he said. 'I'm not afraid," "Then that's it, 11 Naish said. He clasped Kaui's hand. "Later, when the rhip is in shape, you'll sign articles as second mate. Come out aboard now with me. Mr. Bothwick needs help." They walked dow.. to the beach side by side. But at the water's edge after the canoe was launched Kaui said, "You first, please, sir," '.'Aye," Naish said, with'a feel- Ing that was' close to irritnlion. He was the master of the vessel out there, and despite fell or any other bond or fact, hi would remain so, nnd Kaui was his second mote and subordinate.
