Never! Says Man •Who Makes It BOSTON (UP)- A Boston manufacture has announced a nationwide-drive to thwart the "impending threat" of prohibition No- «'«•" Not Bcotch or bourbon —bubble (sum. ,jt seems it'i that bad. The industry faces a crLsU. Gro"ps of Parents and teachers have formed angry anti-bubble gum cliques, he •aid. One Pittsburgh dentist even went so far as to say the baloon- Jng confection caused buck teeth •Thi* 1« absurd," scoffed Thomiu G. Wilder, vice president of aura Products, Inc. "Everyone knows that if you huffed anil puffed hard enough to distend your teeth you'd make very inferior bubbles. That is common toiou'ledge." Manners Needed "But," he admitted, "there are a lev things (hat must be remedied. Kid« have, to stick to chewing bub-, ble gum and stop wearing it. Also, thi» business of popping bubbles in school and church must stop. Those things are getting on peo- ple'a nerves." If the youngesteri of America n't taught bubble-gumming etl- ttte, said Wilder, "the next thing know there'll be a law against the gum. "There's no reason why bubble blowing and popping shouldn't oe accepted on the Park Avenues, the Beacon HilU and the Nob Hills of this country—once the young aro taught gum manners. Clubs Being Formed "The industry is trying to do Just that. Clubs are being formed in th» larger cities." he said. "The youngsters will be given rings and badges and lapel buttons in exchange for solem vows not to chew gum In the wrong places. "They'll have to promise not to make a thunderous din while chewing—and not to discard the stuff on the living room floor Things like that. "The bubble gum business also hai an answer to charges made uy the Pittsburgh dentist," wilder said. "Seeing U bellying, so we have arranged for two Brooklyn, N. T., children—Howard and Ann Buskin—to tour various cities and show people their teeth. "Both chew bubble gum. Neither has buck teeth. And what's more," jaid Wilder in a final triumphant flourish, "their father U a dentist." WARNING ORDER In the Chancery Court, Chicka- aawba District, Mississippi County, Arkansas.

Owned By Stanley Keller xxxvn * FTER awhile when she could " stop cryinj she looked at him and said, tear stains still wet on her cheeks, "Was it—that pill Laurie took—was it poison, flush?" He w«s silent for a long time and then he sold, "So you did remember. The doctor thought you might not. You were so sick afterwards. Yes, Ann, It was poison." They were both very quiet and then Rush said, as though she'd asked the questio-i, "It worked fast, Ann. She didn't suffer." It was very still in the room. There was no sound at all. Until Ann sighed. And Rush said then. "It was better [hat way, Ann. She was— completely unbalanced. She'd have had to be put in on institution." "I know." "Enos and I— Ann, you've got to believe that we tried to figure every angle there was. Believe me, nnn, there simply wasn't a better way." "I do believe you, Hush." She was silent a minute. "And it was Laurie all the time?" He nodded. "Th« bridge? The waxt I didn't imagine any of it?" "No, darling," his hands tightened on her arms. "You didn't imagine any of it" She had to blow her nose, clear her throat "Wh-when did you know?" "Not for too doggoned long," he said, his voice light. "I didn't get suspicious until after I found that the clock was locked. And when I told Enos about it he said he'd been uneasy ever since Tommy came to his office. It was Enos who started me on Laurie's trail." "Why did Enos—what made him think of Laurie?" "Well, he knew her talent for getting whatever she wanted He figural that if she'd r«?.i!y wanted to marry Tommy slia'd hav; mr.n- it capably. It seems that Tommy hated living with us the way he did here, he begged Laurie to marry him but she kept him dangling." Rush's face was d:irk. "He told her finally that he didn't believe the terms of the will; that was when she sent him to Enos. Told hitn to plead with Enos to try and break the will." He looked at Ann. "Laurie knew very well Enos couldn't break the will but she also knew that if the clock fell on you and it came out that Tommy had been to see Enos that a lot of suspicion would fall on Tommy. It was fiendish." "She didn't—she wasn't in love with Tommy at all?" "1 guess not" Rush's voice was low. • • • A NN could remember so clearly hearing Enos say, "Have you ever visualized the sort of man Laurie would fall in love with? Older, distinguished, with money of his own ..." A perfect description of Rush but she hadn't been able to :ee the woods for the trees. And Laurie's penchant for getting what she wanted— Had Er:os known then? Had he been trying to tell her? Her arms tightened about Rush's neck. God bless Rush she thought. We don't have to say it put loud. He knows it and I know it and he knovys I know it and I know he knows ft but we don't ever have to say it God bless Rush. Rush knew she wanted the whole story and so he continued, in a minute. "She worked fast on the bridge. She used an acid on the ropes. Before I had the bridge destroyed I saved a part of the ropes. I was curious about them and I felt doggoned bad about Luke. So I sent them awa;s for analysis. The report came back only yesterday." "And then the wax . . ." "Yes. You see, the devilish part of it, Ann, was i:er complete reck- . It didn't matter to hsr how rnnnjr Uvei die put ir. danger "I know, darling." "And >hen the gas. That came he closest to working. If It hadn'i been for Hincla—" "Rindal I'd forgotten all about her. Did anyotm ever explain to her . . ." And Rush snld, "She's downstairs now. She's been tiere for a week. You can see her later." • • • "R IN P A saw Tommy that iiight," Ann aaid reine- iag. "The night of the gas." "1 know. He'd been downstairs for whisky. He was pretty miserable. Laurie wouldn't marry lunv and she wouldn't let him go." Ann safd, a hint of exasperation m her voice, "Why did you try to stop me when I wanted to talk to Sam ^landing? After all—" "I guess bec.iuse it was so terribly new to me. I'd only begun to realize what was happening the night before—that!s why I sent for Enos. I had to talk to someone. Until you started talking I didn't know • thing ihout the wax on your shoes—by the way, that left the house In the rubbish. The rubbish was collected the day after the wax was used. That was one thing Sam could check and he did; found an almost new can of floor wax at the dump. But, you see, even that wasn't proof of anything. Finding the wax at 'ie dump didn't mean it had come from Tophill—there weren't any fingerprints on it. You nearly bowled me over with that tale." ''Well, but why did you let me think I was—" His arms tightened again. He kissed her hair. 'Enos and I talked it over. We didn't have any proof at all, Ann; that was the sickening psrt of the whole thing. We thought it was Laurie but we couldn't prove it. It seemed bettor for you to be frightened—to let her think we didn't believe you. Ann, that's what I meant when I said I rind a lot to say. I thought I'd go cra-'y myself thinking of the strain you were under—watching you tiny by <iny getting paler and more uncertain of yourself—not being able to comfort you at all!"
