(UP)— ,Th« former coinminder of the Ar,my"s txperimsnUl universal mlll- ,:ary training unit yesterday descrlb- ,sd 'the project as "the most democratic pltn for training ever of/er- ;ed anywhere." M»J. Gtn. J M. Devlne denied :h»rge» by opponent! of universal training that the program "breaks :down American Ideals" and does .not. provide proper moral safe- 'tuardi. ; On the contrary, he told the Senit* Armed Services Committee, It provided education for many poorly- Khooled youths and required some of them to go to church for the first t' m e '« their lives. I He said that in the regular army /'rxperimental" graduates of the .trial program at Port Knox, Ky., made showings 47 per cent above icldlers who received ordinary ba- •Ic training.

Blanche rd's fe Cafe • Portageville, Mo. Owned By Stanley Keller BOB MALONE Plaster and Stucco Phone 2029 XXXVI CHE was propped up on pillows. She was wearing a blue satin bed jacket with white pearl buttons and she had a blue ribbon in her hair. Gay put the ribbon there and then held the mirror for her to see. It looked pretty. She didn't look at her face in the mirror because 5he'd looked at her face once before and it didn't look a bit like herself. This face in the mirror was white and thin with haunted eyes that certainly didn't belong to ner. j She had to resl, they said, the doctor and Gay. She had to rest land drink lots of milk and take vitamins and lie in the sun and get strong. All sh« was to think about, they /said, was getting strong. She'd had a bad bout with pneumonia and she had to be very careful. It hart taken her a long time to get is strong as she was. She'd lived through hours and days and nights and dreams. The dreams, she thought, were the worst because they were so difficult to straighten out, they took such funny turn*. You never knew where a dream would end up. You couldn't actually tell where the dreams left off and where reality began. Although she was pretty sure. None of them' thought she knew anything about it and that was all right with her because she certainly hadn't wanted to talk to them about it but she did remember some things. She remembered bits ol the ride from the cottage to Tophill IB the ambulance. She remembered seeing Stella tnd the maids hovering in the hall, watching as the strange men carried her upstairs or the stretcher. She saw i them but she pretended she ditin't. Because if she saw them she'd have to smile at them and it wasn't worth the «ffort Since that day when they'd brought her home she hadn't seen anyone but Gay. That had been all right too. But now she was better and she had to start facing things. You never got anywhere by being > sissy, or a cry baby, and not facing things. She didn't know how long she'd been home but it was long enough and she was ready now. Ready to take the bull by the horns. /"^AY took the mirror away and put it down on the dresser and then said, brightly, "How do you feel?-' * People asked you such silly questions when you were sick. She said obligingly, "I feel tine." Gay smiled and said, still In the same bright sickroom voice, "Do you want anything?" So she said, because she'd been wanting to say it for so long and had been afraid to, "1 want Rush." She'd been prepared for anything except Gay's bursting into tears. "Gay," she said, "I didn't mean to upset you but you asked me. I—" She frowned— "I thought it was only that he was sick—that that was the reason he hadn't been near me. And I knew it would only distress you to have me ask you. Did he . . .? Is he . . .?" But she couldn't bring herself to say the words. "Gay, stop crying and listen to me!" "I—I am listening. I h-heard you." Gay, astounding!?, hic- coughed and turned a radiant lace to Ann. "I just couldn't believe my ears. Of course I'll get him. Right away. We didn't dream— you said—'* "I said what?" She didn't mean to sound so still but honestly Gay was being pretty silly. "I've been delirious, remember?" Gay grinned and started for the door. She had her hand on the knob when Ann's voice stopped her. DYNAMITE Now in Stock at Paul Byrum's Steel OH Barrel Racks Any 8 lie T. L. MABRY 42* MISSOURI ST. PH.

He came in very quietly and closed the door behind him, and they were alone. As she had thought they might never be agnin. His face was drawn and tired, there was a line network of little lines around his eyes, the set ol his jaw was tight, "Rush." she said and the one word contained all her pent up longing. He looked at her and opened his mouth and then closed It again. Then he said, "Hullo, Ann." It was like a smack In (he face. She tried to smile. "That's a pretty feeble beginning," she said »nd her voice faltered. He came across the room to h«r bed, sat down. "You look belter," he said critically. "I look like a picked chicken," she said tartly and her heart began to race like mad. "But even a picked chicken surcljr deserve* a better greeting than 'hullo'; especially when you've been aj sick as I've been." "I've got a lot to say," he told her. "After I've said it—" "1 don't know what words have got to do with it I'd hoped we could dispense with them. 1 didn't think we necdcd'them." Her chin began to wobble dangerously. "But if it's apologies you want, I'll make them. I'll grovel— I'll crawl— • I'll eat crow only—" • "Ann. for Pete's sakel" he was horrified. Then he was reaching for her, pulling her into his arms. "Ann, you'll crawl? You'll eat crow? Are you crazy? Are you out of your mind?" His own wordi stopped him again and she began to laugh but the tears caught up with her and then she was weeping, racked with jobbing but still in hit arms, held close to him.
