First, we would get such a rogi- | men tut ion of our own lives and livelihoods, lM) minutes after we entered the war, that the Hill of Rights would need a gas mask. Individual liberty of action would swiftly become a mocking memory. "This is not exaggeration. Scan the Army's industrial mobilization plan, for example. We have previewed it here in Congress. I quote a few typical sentences from a recent authentic newspaper review: Strikes " 'Labor and business would be regimented, would be outlawed. Employers would be told bv govern, C-i • • ment what wages to pay and hours to work, what profits to make The government -would dictate costs, interest rates, rents, etc. Light, heat, food will be rationed.' "What lias already happened in England? Here is a headline from last week: 'British Find Liberties Vanish with War. Traditional Freedom Is Blacked- Out.' We could not avoid these blackouts here. In the name of another war 'to save democracy' we should have to strangle democracy in onr own land. "We would come out with an infinitely pyramided debt, If the war dragged on, the debt would not be long in staggering toward $100,000,000,000. It never could be carried or repaid. Repudiation or niinous inflation would be inevitable. Our economic values would collapse. We would ultimately understand what old King Pyrrhus meant when he said, 'Another such victory and we are lost.' We should win another war and lose another peace."—Senator Arthur Vandenberg. SYNOPSIS Guest* at Hill House, « New England summer resort, are amazed when Dr. Paul Rutherford tells them that hi* mother haa 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 dance, Duncan; Dr. Paul's sister, Pauline; Coral Easton, Bmce 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 footsteps overhead. Sally wins Neal's admiration by making friends with his huge dog. Tinker. Later Josie is amazed to find that someone has ransacked her room. Still baffled over the prowler, the poisoned whiskey and the ransacked room, most of ths guests start for the beach. Then Josie has an altercation with her brother. Neal, over her friendship with Alan Murray, iwhose mother is Miss Ivy's best friend. DEATH ASKS NO QUESTIONS From Canada comes the news triat Dr. Frederick Ranting has gone back to war, as a captain in the Canadian army medical corps. He was overseas in the last war and was decorated for valor. In the L'O years between wars he also served conspicuously. It was Dr. Banting who discovered insulin. In the United States alone it is estimated that 2,000,000 diabetics are living today because of that discovery.— -— By a whim of fate, Dr. Banting lived. Xo bullet, had his name on£ it. Perhaps, by a similar whim, the man who might have solved the riddle of cancer died. Perhaps the man who might have cured the common cold has been killed in Poland or will be killed today on the Siegfried line, or tomorrow. Thus does war preserve the advances of civilization and make the world safe for democracy. What Medical Science Has Done To Aid Deaf By LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. DEAFNESS is relative. Since the introduction of the audiometer ft has been possible, to measure the amount of deafness and record it quite accurately. An ear-piece is clamped over the ear, the other ear is stopped and sounds of different loudness are produced, beginning with the faintest sound heard by the normal ear. The person being tested makes a sign at the first sound heard. The other ear is tested in the same way. The degrees of sound are called decibels. Loss of nine decibels is considered the point at which hearing handicap occurs. In other words, it is the lowest degree of Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through his column. I* 1 deafness. Tests of school children show that about six per cent have a loss of nine decibels or more. It is fair to assume that the adult population contains at least as large a number of relatively deaf persons. In childhood the causes of deafness are, for the most part, due to infection—infection of the ear following infectious diseases, such as scarlet fever and measles, or from infected adenoids and tonsils, or chronic infection of the nose. These Mies present fairly hopeful prospects, If not for the relief of the deafness, at least for prevention Of further impairment. If nothing •is* can be done, at least these chil dran can be taught lip reading and $th*r aids, and can be segregated in jdpenool BO that they are not in com- v£n2jLil*J.-_ iti_ .%__!_ M \ Itfon with ions. their more favored Dlfarent Story deafness which comes on in "ft it a different story. It is x*ftjri>*. beginning with .„ and ringings that are i annoying than the deaf* Th« cauM is otosclero- Bt of new spongy } our wWch the middle conduction of sound are impossible. It would be unfair, in the present state of medical knowledge, to hold out much hope for cure or even for arresting the progress of the deafness in these cases. I have long thought that the principal treatment of this type of deafness is psychological rather than medical. The author of a recent ;extbook says, I think wisely: "The satient must be <-ncouraged to learn ip reading as soon as the diagnosis las been made; while there is still useful hearing, it is easy to learn ind, when expertly done, replaces the lost hearing in all situations when the lips of the speaker can be seen by the patient. For other pur- joses a hearing aid of the electric ype, with a bone conduction receiver, is most helpfui." Modern surgery is much less efficient here than in the organs of sight Nature has put the eye on the surface of the body, but it has ocked away hearing in the fastnesses of a grotto of solid bone. But xperimental surgical researchers lold out the hope that some practical method may soon be perfected. Advice of Essayist I have written of some of the trials of such persons. There may be added here the advice of the charming essayist, 2. S. Martin: "A deaf man who really wants to be good has it in his favor that there are a number of sinful things he cannot do to advantage. He cannot play poker, he cannot flirt, he has even a greater incentive to be temperate than most men, for carousals are dull sport to a deaf man He had better be good. He may be virtuous and stiU, ( not be happy- whatever the copybooks declare- but certainly, being deaf, be has a great deal better chance of being happy by sticking to virtue than by trying to be successfully wicked."

Rhoda and Dune were just ahead of us. Whether Josie would have said anything to me then if we had been alone, I do not know. Her face was like a thundercloud. And when Neal. with Coral and Barry joined us, he, too, looked mad enough to chew tacks. We piled into the beach wagon and Neal started the motor. As he let out his clutch and the car began to move, Coral gave a little squeal. "Oh. Neal," she admonished him, "you're forgotten Bruce." Neal granted, but applied his brake. "He knows what time we start back." His tone was irritable. "Where is he?" "I'll find him." Barry obligingly scrambled out and went back to the Deach. "What's the matter with my boy?" cooed Coral in a voice plainly audible to us all. N&al looked at her. I thought he wasn't in the mood for her cajoling. His gaze went back to the steering wheel, but Coral was not content to let well enough alone. I believe now that her object was to foster trouble between Neal and hia sister, though then I thought it just her catty desire to flaunt her Influence over him. If the last ifl true, she received the surprise of her life. "I saw you talking to that Alan Murray," she said spitefully over her shoulder to Josie. "I shouldn't think you would do such a thing when you know how worried il makes—" J'Coral!" Neal turned savagely upon her. "Josie and I can settle our difficulties without interference from anyone." I gasped at tone and words. The last I thought an intimation to me not to try any placating a* I had before. "Neal!" Coral's tone was of outraged dignity. "You needn't speak to me like that. I won't stand it.' If she thought to intimidate Neal she was mistaken. "You heard what I said," he returned curtly. "I mean it." Her face went red then white with rage. She moved over to the extremity of the seat as though to show Neal just how offended she was, but he ignored her gesture. My own idea is that he was about fed up; that her hold on him was a precarious on? which was wearing thin under her own actions and words. Barry and Orton came racing across the platform to us. Barry was puffing like a tortoise. Orton loped along as easily as Neal or Duncan might have done. They piled in and Orton said: "I'm awfully sorry to hold up the works, Neal. I met a fellow I know and in talking to him forgot to watch the time." "Oke," said Neal. "Forget it." Not another word was spoken until we reached Hill House. Intuitively Barry and Orton must have known there was friction. When we reached the inn we went directly to the tiny house equipped with showers and dressing cubicles which Mrs. Peake had arranged for bathers. I was looking around admiringly when I hearc Josie say: "Coral Easton. I've stood all the "Josie and I can settle our difficulties without any interference from anyone." interference and insinuations from' you that I intend to. Neal told you just now that we are perfectly capable of settling any difficulty we may have without any of your help. I tell you the same; and more than that, the very next time you stick your nose into what is none of your business, that day you, bag and baggage, leave Hill House. Do you understand that?" Josie was standing squarely in front of Coral. Ruthless determination was on her face and in her voice, though she was shaking as though in the tremors of a severe chill. I was sure it was anger rather than cold which so affected her, and I wondered if tears, the usual accompaniment of such a strain, would follow. Coral glared at her in return. "The very idea of your daring to speak to me like this," she declaimed dramatically. "And as for my leaving Hill House, I think Neal will have something to say about that." "Neal has nothing to do with whoever stays at Hill House or goes," retorted Josie, "and for your information, if you're contemplating marrying him, I'll tell you that he never will have, you." Coral's face changed. "What do you mean?" she gasped. "You heard me." Josie, with scornful expression, turned away. "Just remember it. Every word is truth." With that she walked into one of the cubicles and firmly closed the door. When I was dressed, I called to her: "I'm going to my room, Josie. As soon as you're ready come for me." "I will, thanks." Her voice was as blithe and gay as though she had not just been engaged in battle with a woman she detested. There was stronger stuff in Josie than I had thou^Jit. I went to my room and sat down by the window. The fog was as thick as ever. !• could only sec a few yards from my window, but I wasn't interested in the view. I wanted to ponder the past few hours, try to bring a semblance of order into my own thoughts. Who was Alan Murray? I didn't know. Rhoda did, but from her few words I couldn't glean any information. From Josie's angry retort to Neal, I did gather two things. First: Josie liked Alan Murray and Neal didn't. Second: Alan's mother was a friend of Miss Ivy Newcomb's. I wondered if it were solely for the last reason that Neal so hotly pursued Josie up the beach. It didn't seem to me quite the thing a modern young physician woulc do, down thumbs on a young fellow merely because the other's mother was the friend of a spiteful old woman. A woman, moreover, who was a blood relation to the doctor's stepmother. I had gone just that far when ] was interrupted. "Hey-oh. Sally. 1 Will See Pictures of Wild_Game Life UPPER HAMLIN.—The Hamlin Nordhouse PT-A will hold the first meeting of the year at Hamlin Townhall at 8 o'clock Friday evening, Oct. 20.

"Lunch is ready," she said. "We'll lave that first." Josie didn't seem to have much appetite, but I ate enough for two, and so anxious was I to get to Josie's room that I'm afraid I actually gobbled. In a very short time we were crossing the lounge, going up the stairs to Josie's room. Once there, she looked disdainfully around. Her eyes still glowed mutinously, her lips held their angry pout. "Sit down, Sally." She threw herself into a chair as she spoke. "Let's forget this mess for a while. I want to talft" "Go ahead," I said. "I'll be glad to listen. I can work while you talk." I went down and picked up a handful of papers. They were story manuscripts. I could see that at a glance. "Where the Poppies Bloom." "Cupid's Circus." Title after title sprang to my eyes. I laid each name by itself on the desk. Soon my handful of papers was sorted and I picked up another. Josie watched me. In a short while I had cleared a space around the desk. There, as new titles appeared, I started new piles. "They're no good!" Josie spoke so sharply that I started. "No good at all. I've tried and tried. I can't write one good enough to be accepted. I think I'll give it up. I can always run a hotel after the training I've had here." Her voice was bitter. I straightened up from the* papers. "How old are you, Josie?" I demanded. "Twenty-three." "And you talk of quitting at that age," I said contemptuously. "I'm only two years older than you and I've earned my own living since I was eighteen. You have a comfortable home, a mother, a brother. And you talk of giving up, because you've tried a few times and failed." "A few times! There are 37 stories there, and I've sent them out again and again." "It seems to me," I mused aloud, "that I have heard of would-be writers who struggled and went hungry to buy paper to write on and postage to send their stories out. They worked years until the things they wrote were so good no editor could turn them down. If you've failed on 37, write th' 38th or the 138th and succeed." I slyly watched her face while I continued sorting papers. I mustn't say any more on that line, I decided. When I thought she had digested my words, I asked. "What do you want to tell me?" Her face changed. "Sally, I need a friend." "You have her," I announced crisply. "Go on from there."
