HOW 'THEY' GET A HOSPITAL Ais would, be .-expected,., there has been extensive discussion of almost'every phase of the question, now that Mason county; is in,the act actually of obtaining 1 a new hospital building, .Which is as it should he. In it ;all, we have heard nobody question the need for a new,hospital building, nor- have we heard anyone deny that the new buildingcan be finished now for a smaller outlay of futids. tlmn ever again in the future. Abottt these two points there is no argument. ...•Interested'parties will discuss every other phase of the •'. ' SYNOPSIS Guesta at Hill House, a New England summer resort, are amazed when Pr. Paul Rutherford tells them that Vs • mother has been poisoned by a •mall drink of whiskey he thinks was Intended for him. Among them are Sally Gordon, spending her first vacation there; her close friends, Rhoda and her ftnnce. Duncan; Dr. Paul's sister, Pauline; Coral Easton. Bruce Orton, Joseph Barry and Dr. Neal Feake and Josie Peake. children of Mrs. Peake, the proprietor. There has been some talk about "the spite fence." 'erected by Mrs. Peake's estranged sister. Miss Ivy Newcomb, near Hill House, and a recent prowler heard by some of the guests. Dr. Paul and Dr. Neal try to discover who poisoned the whiskey. Meanwhile, just as •he retires. Sally hears furtive foot- •teps overhead. Sally wins Neat's admiration by making friends with his huge dog. Tinker. Later Josie is •niazed to find that someone has ransacked her room.

John Jackowiak Takes Milwaukee Girl As Bride CHAPTER TEN WHEN I TOLD Coral she was "afraid of Tinker" and "you can't fool dogs" it wasn't all a dirty crack. I expressed my sincere opinion. Rhoda gave me another dig in the ribs. I didn't know whether it was intended for applause or question) summing up their opinions with an assertion that condemnation. Josie made again "the .doctors ought to build it" o build "the county ought to -"'.or somebody else ought to build it. Or, frequently, She heard it, too, for her cameiiia- "why don't you get some of that Washington money?" ' Uke skin turned an ugly bnck red ' In All of which represents two things: stances, sincere criticism ; in some instances, not contributing; In ALL instances, it will hospital. There is no debate, however, about the need for a pital. some in- an alibi for NOT build a hos- Perhaps I had jeopardized my budding friendship with Neal by what I said to her, but I couldn't help it. Her ostentatious assumption of absolute authority over Neal and Tinker burned me up, though why it should do so I couldn't explain. Now she flounced angrily around In her seat until she was facing Neal, who through the altercation • was looking straight ahead. She ' opened her lips, but before she could speak he gave her a look i which effectually sealed them I again. In & stern voice which ad' mltted no comeback, he said: | "Sally is absolutely right, Coral. : Tinker is not dangerous in any • way. He is a watchdog, and as such i should be regarded. He has made friends with Sally, and I shall not prohibit her from handling him as i she pleases." j It was a bitter pill for her to j swallow, but she yielded with a ) pretty display of deference.

She didn't care what happened i to me, and I knew it.-'But she was ; -clever ^-enough to twist what was j said to strengthen her hold upon Neal. Probably, when he calmly re. viewed the conversation, he would I put me down as an unmannerly ! brat and her as the perfect lady. 1 There wasn't another word spok- i en-by anyone until we reached the This led us to the question of how other communities obtain their hospitals. Are they "handed" the communities as gifts? Who builds and maintains them? It is a pertinent question, for many persons feel it is enough to pay hospital bills, without being expected to pay for the hospital, too. It led us to investigate, since we are interested only in decent hospital facilities for this region. By mailing a few letters and doing some figuring with a pencil we came by these facts: Out of all the 84 approved hospitals in Michigan, the largest group, 30 in all, 'were built and are maintained by the community on a basis exactly similar to the Mason County Hospital association. Second largest group, 25 in number, were built and are maintained by church organizations. Seventeen are operated by cities as regular divisions of the. municipal governments. Five of the 84 are operated by counties, four are privately-owned bv individuals and the remaining three are "private corpora." fions. , , ;••,. , In,other words, most communities in Michigan obtain and operate their hospitals either as a non-profit community project, as in Mason county, or aw a church-sponsored' project, •: X : > ; ,..--=-.• X •-..,# . #' * .,'••'-• : - '," I •,"'Kfeal. parked the .car a short'dls- • ; -'"-. 1 *'• .'•'"' '• "" . .''[•'. ••,. • . ! taoce above the 'beach.

As in a majority of. other communities, these people know that if we really want a new hospital we will build it ourselves on the basis of the start;already made. They know, and so does everyone else, that there can be no argument .about the need for a new hospital—that "we are closer to the goal j now, for far less money, than we will ever be again in the i future.

Swimming is the one sport at which I excel. I was willing to bet that Coral Easton would be a beach lounger. Perhaps I would have a chance to talk to Nieal on the raft 'Neal, arms piled high with rug, pillows and magazines, toiled from the-car over the soft sand. Coral, gallantly assisted by Joseph Barry, mlncikl al^ng at his side. Xr sWam put to the first raft, hooked my arm through the safety 10bj».;and deliberately watched tl)em. The two men chose a place arid .carefully spread the rug. Coral dropped,the pillows exactly to her liking, tossed off her cape and gracefully, stretched out there. She patted the ground beside her very Invitingly. Barry jumped to a seat next her as obediently as a poodle Spripgs through a hoop, but Neal is no beach lizard. He shook his head, ; ran down the beach and, ignoring her cries of: "Neal, Neal. come back here!" plunged into the water. • ' -At his'-flrst step away from her, I-' dropped the loop and started slowly for the second raft. Rhoda, Josie, :Orton and. Duncan had already reached it and were shout- Can't you make it?" It was Neal's voice in my ear. I was dawdling along waiting for him to catch up, but he didn't know that. "It's warmer water than I'm used to," I said, tossing my sweetest smile at him. "It makes me lazy. Perhaps I need a race to wake me up." Neal fell for that, just M I expected he would. "Beat you to the raft," he cried gaily. "Like fun you will," I flung back at him. I spurted with every ounr e of strength I possessed, but I couldn't draw away^from him as I c-n from two-thirds of my swimming acquaintances. I could keep even, stroke for stroke, and that was all. "You can sure swim, Sally," he said as we reached the raft. "There aren't many girls who can keep up with me." That made me feel better. I had been afraid that my best speed was for Neal a slow one, and that if he had -wanted to do so he could have pulled away and left me far behind. We had a gay hour on the raft. Orton, who at first stuck close to Josie, decided he had had enough. He swam to shore and Josie went with him. Then we four sat down on the raft edge and seriously considered the mystery of Hill House. We talked and talked, and the more we said the more puzzled we became. "Why don't you call in the police, Neal?" asked Duncan. "If the three things, the prowling, poisoning and ransacking of Josie's room are the work of one person, they certainly must have a definite object in view. In that case you can't foresee what they will do next. I think you should have someone here who can find out what is going on and give you protection if you need it." Neal shrugged his shoulders uneasily. "I suggested that, to Paul," he confessed, "but he doesn't want his mother upset by knowing what really ailed her. She Isn't a very strong woman and he Is afraid of the effect on her." "Then," spoke up Rhoda, "turn their rooms; and even then, unless you told them all, someone might go out—to see the moonlight or for some other equally innocent reason—and get into trouble. And if j you did tell them, the most of them would pack up and leave at once. I tell you, Neal, the only sensible thing is to call in the police." "Perhaos you're right," Neal conceded. "But I can't do that unless Paul agrees." "Then leave the poisoning of Mrs. Rutherford out of it," urged Duncan. "Tell them about the prowler and Josie's room. They'll set a trap and catch the one responsible before any snore harm is done." "I think Josie should have the deciding vote," I remarked firmly. "After all, it is her room which was searched." AS I spoke Neal stood up on the raft, glanced down at me, then looked around. I followed suit. I supposed he intended to call Josie. She was on the beach conversing with a fine-looking young fellow. Neal emitted an unintelligible grunt and dived off the raft. "Josie," he yelled as he came to the surface and started at top speed for the shore. Josie looked around at Neal's shout, waved and walked up the beach. The stranger went with her. "Let us go, too," Rhoda suggested. By the time we reached the shore, Josie and the young fellov,- were some distance up the beach with Neal striding purposefully in pursuit. "Josie, come back here," I heard him yell as I shook the water from my ears. Leisurely Josie turned back to meet Neal and the stranger went on alone. "There'll be fireworks now," mourned Rhoda In an aside to me. I think that she had just noticed *2Q LESS ,„.„ ,„. best ordinary type washers r Ofr 'ING the bres >4ftO the '0(15 There is little need of Thanksgiving proclamations.

It didn't mean a thing to me. 1 didn't know who Alan Murray might be, but it was easily seen that Neal and Josie were in a furious quarrel.
