(UP)— Wie jo-called "Gibson plan" to activate the Idle Missouri and Arltan- tu Riilroid Tan into opposition at a meeting of the ClUxeni Committee her* yesterday. Principal opposition came from lormer Gov. Carl X. Bailey and his law iMOclate, Xugene Warren of Little Rock. Bailey laid the plan aounded plauaibie, but Questioned why major railroad would not put mon- *y into it. Th* plan, Bailey said, waa "basically •wrong," and a "perfect setup Tor a promotional jcheme." Under the plan, citizens along the lin* have agreed to subscribe 1250.000 If Kelley Olbwn and his unidentified auociates would mato an agreement with labor, get a 250,000 loan from the, Reconstruc tion Finance Corporation and ren equipment from the Kansas City Southern. During the two-hour meeting •everal persons expressed the belie that Gibson was backed by William JJeramus, president of the Kansas '•fU't Southern Railroad. ^pThe people along the line," Bailey' said, "are gambling without any assurance that the RFC will make By Renee Shewn BY RENtE DISTRIBUTED BY N£A SERVICE, INC.

Ot course he was. But he was sweet to her, Patience. True, he kissed her. Tru«, last night he'd said a lot of wonderful things lo her. But that w»j all. It was beastly o* Charlotte to .luggest he wasn't to b< trusted. She heard the telephone beH ringing in her room next door and went to answer it. "Hello?" "You goint to b» loner aeked 'Roger. "No. Ill just pack my thingc, •then I'll be down." " T 'll be waiting for you." He was standing over by the wide entrance to the hotel when some little white later she joined him. She laid a hand on his arm. "Sorry if I've kept you." "That's all right." His eyef searched her fac«. "What's wrong?" "Why, nothing." Re wasn't satisfiad. "Something's happened. Dk you *ee Charlotte?" "Yes." "Have you put thin* right? She shook her head. "I tried," and then angrily: "I don't know what's the matter with her." He smiled down at her. "You've.really no idea? Ai th risk: of sounding conceited, yo don't think that perhaps it's th little green-eyed monster?" "You mean she's jealous of me? • » • "WELL, yet." He slid a haix benealh her arm, and p loted her out through the swin doori of the hotel into the bri liant sunshine. "Actually with good reason. Still, this is neithe the time nor the place to go in' He paused, looking up and own the street. "Let's have an- her drive out to some place to- py, shall we? Or would that ba ery solflshT Do you want per- aps to look at shops?" This was assuredly what she anted. After all, H was her nly opportunity. And the PariB she'd always heard were so wonderful. He saw the disappointment iu her lace and laughed gently. All right. We'H compromise. Shops first and then a drive." "You won't forget we've not got lot of time. I've said we'll meet Charlotte at the hotel at 2:30." He raised hij eyebrows. "We don't ttien aM lunch together?" "No." "I see. Well, that's O.K. by me. t couldn't suit me better. Now, where shall we go first?" "That's U£ to you. I don't know aris." "I suggest the Hue de la Paix." They wandered down it arm in arm. Patience tried to forget what :harloU« had said to her and to enjoy to the full the sight of th« shop windows. About 11:30, Roger suggested abandoning the jhopt and taking a drive. They hired a car this time. Roger knew a place >ome little distance out of Paris where he wanted to take her. There was a hotel by the river. No, it wouldn't take them very long to get there. A half hour or so. AH right, they'd allow rather longer coming back again. They sped swiftly through the congested streets, Patience'8 heart in her mouth. "Do French drivers always drive so fast?" "Oh yes. One gets used to il." "It's t bit nerve-racking." "This man's quite reliable. And he's jure to know every inch of the road." TT was coming back that it hop•*• pcnod. A lorry, coming o<it ot a side-road, hit them broadside on. It was a miracle no one was injured. To Patience it all seemed to be over so swiftly that she'd scarcely any time to feel friRhl encd. Roger helped her out of their battered car, asking her anxiously if there were any bone* broken. "No. I'm quite all right." " "So am.l. Well, that's a mercy." A crowd was collecling. Their driver and the driver o£ the lorry were having a fierce argument. Their voices rose. They gesticulated wildly. Obviously each wa« convinced the other was to blame. A gendarme came up and joined in the fray. He whipped out hia notebook. He wanted all particulars. The drivers' names. The passengers' names. The names of any witnesses. Patience pulled at Roger's arm. "Is this going to lalt« vwy long?" "1 hope not." "Must we wait?" "We must I'm afraid unfH Hi* gendarme's finished with us." It was a tedious business. Patience grew more and more fretted. "Roger, I'm getting awfully worried." • Roger spoke to the gendarme. Then he turned reassuringly to Patience. "He says he won't teeep us mo« than a further few moments." H« kept them a quarter of an hour. By that time Patienc* was almoet frantit. At last however they were free to go. But how to continue their journey was their next problem. The car they'd been traveling in was completely disabled. There seemed to be litU« chance of hiring another one. "I've an idea the metro will b« quickest," said Roger, after making inquiries. "That man, says there's a station just down the road." They hurried towards K. But it was midday and the trams were not running very frequently. They paced the plalform. Patience tried not to worry. It would do no good. Besides they could surely still make H.
