TWO LINES OF DEVELOPMENT There are two lines of development which LmlingtoTi has a right to expect of the future—if proper local effort is put forth. One is the development of its harbor facilities. The other is restoration of some phase of its one-time gait industry, including the kindred chemical off-shoots of that industry. ., Both of these are natural to Ludington; thus they are lines of logical future development. For example, every effort, we believe, should be inade by tM industrial committee of the Chamber of Commerce and by all the rest of us to re-locate some suitable branch of the chemical industry in Ludington. A rich salt vein is one of the proven resources of the region and, obviously, just as a person follows natural aptitudes, so should a region follow natural advantages in promoting its welfare. There are many present-day off-shoots of the chemical industry, some lines .of which, it seems, could be located here with mutual profit to themselves and us. There are many other lines of possible development, it is true, and none need be neglected for the others. The chemical industry, it so happens, is one very logical line of i such development. In industrialization effort, we believe, it will be well to keep such possibilities always in mind. * * * One of the other most natural lines of development is of course related to our harbor. Tt is the line of development on which we now seem to be about to make some tangible progress. Ludington possesses what is admittedly one of the finest harbors on the'Great Lakes. It is the operating base of the world's largest and finest carferry fleet—Ludington's largest industry. It is also the base of a commercial fishing fleet, of a growing volume of summer activity and of some rather small amount of freighter activity. - ^"TnWfoms^t -up,Iff present. Wie"reason"ft sufris'if up is that the harbor, while one of the city's finest natural advantages, is, by lack of frontage development, restricted in its usefulness. In other words, it is a fine harbor, without Sufficient facilities for its use. Last Friday an enthusiastic and excellent meeting was held at the city hall to discuss a means of promoting a haven of refuge for small craft—that being the most logical immediate prospect of extending usefulness of the harbor.. We know such .small craft business is to be had in growing volume, and that it is profitable and worthwhile fvwti.'a community point of view. So the way has been paved to inaugurate such a project. We hope a sharp focus is kept on the project. To some it may seem a jninor issue—a matter of constructing a few slips for small boats. To us, it is an actual, logical. IMMEDIATE way to add to usefulness of our harbor. It is HARBOR IMPROVEMENT on the only immediately feasible basis. So we say a,gain, we hope the city commission and its special harbor development committee keep a sharp focus on that project, and folloAV it through to the end. Such projects have been discussed in the past, but they have al- wavs degenerated into mere talk, with no consistent program. We have an opportunity now to follow a line of development that may give us increased use for our harbor. It is "one of those footholds most logical for Ludington. Community development must be along every front, of cpiirse—as much as we can make it. Both in regard to present and prospective industries. We will always do well, however, to remember natural advantages. Our harbor and our mineral heritage are two of them. In regard to our harbor, a start has been made. Menus of the By MRS.

Shot Rogers had not talked with Lorena the whole way in. Ht might have conversed with her, but when Jerry had told them news of Escobar's raid at the Hump, miles away, Shot knew he was thwarted again. This put him in a dark mood. He had already been tremendously upset byxjjprena's coming, and by the frct"-that he had Impulsively fired three bullets at her. Too, Jerry Dale clung to her. Shot could not have ridden near without appearing to force himself in. Most of the men we.-e tired, but they thought nothing of it. Of one accord they turned their horses over to Midnight and another wrangler, and gathered with the Phantom cowboys, George and Sally Brazee, Jasper Peters, Lorena, even the Mexican servants, on or near the front porch. Jerry Dale was called on to relate what he saw at the Hump, first He told it in minute detail, then answered many questions. He spoke convincingly. George and Sally Brazee sat in rocking chairs —the only sign of rank in this gathering, and it an unconscious one—and Sally fanned herself, not because she was warm, but from meer nerves. "You were wise not to show yourself, Jerry," -George Brazee said, toward the end of his narration. "In daytime that way you would have faced grave danger if they had seen you. They must know we killed some of their men. They'd want revenge. Escobar has a reputation for vindictiveness and cruelty, anyway. Remember how he raided the little towns in Chihuahua when he was campaigning two years ago? Killing and murdering and mutilating people wantonly? Don't any of you men ever let him catch you! Or women, either!" With that last he turned to look significantly at his niece. AH the others, too, saw him. If it had been daytime, they would have seen Lorena blush. She felt that she had to say something, but any words choked in her throat. Jerry Dale, however, had more to say here. "Listen, I want to know something." Jerry clipped his words angrily now. "I want to know what the hell Rogers means by carting Lorena off on any-sucu-business r as- thia today? What does he mean by luring her off with any bunch of men any time? He—" "Why, Jerry, you can't—!" Lorena tried to Interrupt. Jerry kept on talking. Not to, but about Shot Rogers, who was present. The others there felt the quick clash of tempers which they knew was impending. Even George Brazee was silent "What the hell does Rogers think he's hired for? To run down Luis Escobar, or 'o force himself on a pretty girl guest just because sift happens to borrow his horse on her first day In Arizona? He had no business taking her over to the east range this morning and he had no—" Jerry was talking fast. Mr. Brazee made a motion as If to silence him, but somehow managed no words. For one thing, Shot Rogers himself—who had been to one side of the gathering there—had begun to elbow forward. Jerry Dale wt^ a broad, handsome young man obviously wrought up about today's turn of events. He was definitely Impressive in his speech there, as "lr^ * ^ •«.. / "I want to know why you went up there with him," remarked Jerry. mistaking me for one of Escobar's men. His companions were witnesses to that Mr. Rogers hasn't spoken to me all day because he was angry with me for coming up any big man is likely to be in auger. But Shot Rogers, slenderer, taller, normally, quieter, nevertheless was known to the others as a man of equal if very different force. Impulsive in his own right at times, Shot nevertheless had a something of trust and ability in him which the other lacked. Most of those present knew it. All of them sensed the quick drama there. "You are doin' a powerful lot of talking," Shot said slowly, when he had come near to Jerry Dale. 'You are asking a lot of questions." "You're damn tootin' I am, Rogers. Now listen to me. You may ;hink you're the king bee around :ere just because you're hired to ead the fighting men. Or because you won a medal or two with your juns. Well, listen, all that don't make a damn. So far you've managed to be somewhere else every time Escobar's been around. Usually you're to be found with Miss Lorena!" Then Shot thing. said a surprising "I ain't accustomed to hear you say 'Miss' Lorena, Dale. You called ler plain Lorena from the first day. How come you pick up the Miss now?" The speech startled everybody, ncluding Lorena herself. Partly because it was true, and mainly because Shot had spoken so mildly 'nstead of flaring up in anger. "Stop all this nonsense!" George 3razee commanded. When George 3razee wanted to, he could roar. His big voice boomed out impressively now. "Jerry, if you've got a chip on your shoulder about some- .hing, then you better go to bed. You've been out all last night and all day today. You may not feel it, but you need rest. "At the same time., there's some truth in what he says. I mean, it seems to me it's important to know why Lorena happened to be up :here boyond Miners' arroyo with the hired fighting men. leaving her aunt here distracted with worry, when she had no business up there a-tall. Now, Lorena, you are a guest in this -house and a grown one at that, but if Shot Rogers figures to mix his courting with—" "Uncle George!" Lorena interrupted. "You said I was a grown Derson. So I am, then. I do apologize to Aunt Sally, and to you. But [ want you all to know that my presence in Miners' arroyo was as •nuch a surprise to Mr. Kogers as t was to Jerry Dale or you. Shot Rogers even tried to kill me. I mean be shot at me with his rifle, there."

Neil Prepares Schedule of Sports William Neil, local recreational leader under the sponsorship of the WPA recreational division, leaves Monday to attend a week's school of instruction at Boyne City. Mr. Neil is preparing his schedule of sports and recreation topics for the school. He will have charge of recreational sports for the grades during the recess periods. The noon hour will be devoted to sponsoring various sports and contests for the students who remain at school during the noon hour. This group has been largely increased by the bringing in of so many students by bus. While no definite plans have been made, he plans to have softball and soccer for the present. Later a regular schedule will be worked out and announced. clare!" Sally Brazee came to life at this juncture. "Things happen so! Goodness, he actually shot at you? Did he hurt you? Couldn't he see who it was and all? I declare, I don't know whatever's to become of this ranch if things don't stop crowding up, one after the other and—" "Don't get worked up. Sally," her husband said. But she went on. "—and never a way to know what's going to happen next. You say Shot actually took his rifle to shoot at you." "Yes, Aunt Sally. Of course he thought he was doing right The bullets went through my hair, on top of my head. Tore my silk handkerchief. It actually was a narrow escape, but I guess I deserved the scare. I apologize to you again, and—" "But, honey, whatever were you doing up there in the first place? Since Shot didn't take you, and didn't know you were there, what were you doing?" "Why, yes!" Her uncle George put this in, turning to her In this talking. "Shot, you and your men agreed 24 hours ago to go to the Hump. .Even if .you changed your rhlnd without consulting us, which would have been all right, how'd Lorena know it? Lorena, did you expect Shot to come to the east range, in the opposite direction? How did you know he'd be there?" Lorena's lower lip tucked In again, In the manner It had when she was agitated. It made her look like a scared little girl, which in a measure is what she was. "I can't answer that one Just now, Uncle George," she murmured. "Well, listen," Jerry Dale put In again, pointing a finger at Lorena, "I don't care how you knew where Rogers was at. I want to know why you went up there with him? That's what 1 want to know— why?" The people all stared at her, deeply interested. Lorena was wide- eyed, but she lifted her pretty chin just a little. Even In the dim moon glow there they could see the challenge in her. "And that, Mr. Jerry Dale," she said evenly, "I'm afraid is none of your business!"
