HALLOWE'EN PARTIES Both in Ludington an<l in Scottville there will be community Hallowe'en parties for the kids next Tuesday evening. It is a'fine idea, taken tip in many progressive communities these days. Instead of a lot of harum-scarum activity and trouble, a big party is held and everybody has more fun. Where an orderly, properly supervised outlet for Hal- lowe'en fun is provided, the disorderly element is confined to those few vandal groups who are always with us anyway and who must be the object of police surveillance. For most persons, organized fun, furnishing a real outlet for youthful spii-its, turns the annual spook holiday into a pleasant community event. In Lmlington. PT-A groups are sponsoring this year's party, while the Rotary club in Scottville is again behind the event there. All that, is needed is the co-operation of parents as well as kids. Sponsoring groups are spending considerable money to stage the two events. An advance word of caution to children, from their parents, is always in order to the effect that Hallowe'en can mean a lot of real fun if the celebrants use ordinary judgment. Malicious, mean destruction or ugly attempts at personal harm are not fun. Sometimes there is a flare-back from destructive acts that is decidedly unfunny. Oftentimes more damage is done (han was intended, for things that start out as innocent pranks have a \vay of going beyond their intended goal. The time to think about that is in advance, not afterwards. So this year, as in the past, public-spirited groups are providing the funds for bang-up outdoor Hallowe'en parties. With parents' co-operation, they provide the best answer in the world to the problem of what to do about Hal- lowe'en. WRITTEN FOR AND RELEASED BY CENTRAL PRESS ASSOCIATION It is possible that the world could get along very well, if it had to, \vithout the people who can't seem to get along with the world.

New England summer resort. Is found murdered by the "spite fence" erected near her property by her estranged •later, Mlsa Ivy Newcomb. Previous to the murder the guests had been concerned about the poisoning of one of their number. Mts. Rutherford, who recovers; strange sounds of a prowler on the property, and the ransacking of one of the rooms. Those at Hill House besides Dr. Neal and Josle Peakc, children of the dead woman, are Sally Gordon, spending her first vacation there; her close friends. Rhoda and her fiance Duncan; Dr. Paul and Pauline Rutherford, children of Mrs. Rutherford; Coral Easton, Bruce Orton and Joseph Barry. Josie is friendly with Alan Murray, who .rves at Miss Ivy's, and that Infuriates her brother. Neal. He likes Coral Easton. for whom Josie has no use. The police begin their Investigation. The police chief enlists the aid of Miss Gordon then Introduces Captain Lancy, well-known detective, who has been called in to take charge of the case. As Captain Lancy begins to question all of those •t Hill House, Miss Ivy pays a surprise visit. CHAPTER TWENTY WHEN THAT door swung back revealing Miss Ivy Newcomb, we •at as though stunned by the sight. But when she stepped over the •ill, Neal sprang to his feet. "How dare you come here?" he •houted. "You killed my mother, I know you did." He was shaking so that he could hardly stand, as he burled his accusation at her. Chief Forrest stepped forward and grasped his arm. "Neal, Neal, my boy," he said toothingly, "give us time to find out why she is here. If she killed your mother, I promise you that we'll—" Miss Ivy Newcomb did not give him time to finish. "A fine reception," she snorted, "but no different | than I expected from those up- atarts." Her eyes flashed from Neal to Josie, with malignant hatred. "I've just learned that my sister is dtad. If that is true, this house belongs to me, and I want this unholy crew out of it within ten minutes. Within ten minutes, I say." Her voice trembled with rage, as she shook her fist at us all. I pitied Alan Murray. He was deathly white and he tried in vain to stop her words. He raised his own voice, almost to a shout in his endeavor to be heard. "I wouldn't have come with her if I'd known what she was going to say." Over the heads of the rest his eyes besought Josie's understanding. Josie was on her feet. Even in her righteous wrath she flashed him a smile beautiful in its acceptance of his words. Her voice was cold, every word fell distinctly on the surprised ears of her hearers. "For your information, Miss Newcomb," she said with a sarcastic inflection, "I will tell you that Hill House and all it contains is mine. Mine! Do you understand that?" "It's a lie," shrieked Miss Ivy, and to my utter astonishment I heard Coral Easton's angry voice. "That's not so," she cried. "This bouse is Neal's." Chief Forrest dropped Neal's arm and strode toward Miss Ivy. - "Miss Newcomb," he said sternly, "whether this house belongs to you or not is a matter which will be settled later. The police are in charge here now and everyone here will stay here until we release them." "I don't care a hang for you and your police officers, Ben Forrest," yelled Miss Ivy. "This is my house and here I'm going to stay." As lightly as a bird, Josie moved across the floor until she stood by Chief Forrest's side. "Chief Forrest, it is an insult to my mother for that woman even to be her-j. I am depending upon you to send her away." With her brown head held proudly erect, she faced Miss Ivy, and the scorn in her glance drove the .woman to greater passion. She crooked her skinny hands into horrible semblance of an animal's claw and swooped forward as if she would tear Josie's eyes from her face. Chief Forrest's stout arm Interposed to hold her back, but it was not needed. "You—you—yo—" Her voice starting in a furious shriek, died away in muttering which came /rom a sadly twisted face as she fell forward. Dr. Paul was at Chief Forrest's aide, as he caught the slight figure Gently they laid her on one of the davenports. All else was forgotten in the sudden attack which had Overwhelmed her. "Neal!" Dr. Paul's voice waa "How dare you conic here?" Neal shouted. asking for help. For only an instant Neal hesitated. Then he was at the other's side. Dr. Paul spoke n a low murmur to him; then both straightened from bending over the woman, and Neal started on a run Tom the room. Dr. Paul's eyes glanced briefly nto each face. "A shock," he pronounced in a hard, cold voice. Even his healing instincts were in obey- ance, frozen at their source by the disgusting tantrum to which Miss [vy had subjected us. When Neal returned with his doctor's case, the two physicians again bent over the stricken figure. Again they conferred; then Neal spoke: "Josie, will you go with Duncan and Bruce and get the cotbed from the storeroom. We want to use it for a stretcher. It will be best to take f>tiss Ivy home at once. It will not harm her, covered warmly from the damp and, frankly, I prefer that she should be in her own home under the care of her own doctor. She has Dr. Willis, doesn't she?" He spoke to Alan, who had stood self- consciously watching them work over the termagant he had escorted to Hill House. "Yes." Alan frankly mopped his forehead. "I've something to say." he announced, looking with honestly approving eyes at Neal. "Maybe I shouldn't, but I'm going tc say it, anyway. It's this. I've never seen anything finer than the way you've worked over her after what she said and the way she acted. My hat's off to you." He looked Neal squarely in the eyes as he spoke. Back of me I heard Captain Lancy utter a low: "Hear, hear!" Neal gave Alan a half smile, but laid his hand for an instant on the broad shoulder before him. I knew by his words that he hadn't missed Alan's shouted apology. "Thanks, Murray. A doctor should consider the human rather than the individual, you know. I believe you'd do the same." It was an amende honorable, and as such Alan accepted it. "Sally, will you go to the office and telephone for Dr. Willis? An emergency call. Don't bother about his number. Ask him to come to Miss Ivy's house as quickly as he can make it. Chief Forrest, will you have two of your men carry her home? Paul, you needn't go, just give Alan your flashlight." Deftly the two doctors arranged the unconscious figure, well wrapped in blankets, upon the cot- stretcher. The two officers picked up their burden and, with Alan showing the way, carried Miss Ivy home from her first visit to Hill House In many years. Silently we watched and, as the door closed behind them, the sense of horror and strain which had been absent since Miss Ivy suffered her swift seizure, returned to us all. Before either Captain Lancy or Chief Forrest could speak, Coral Easton stepped up to Josie. "I want to know what you meant by telling that woman that Hill House is yours. It is Neal's, and you know it." On Josie's face a contemptuous ! expression appeared. "I said ex- ; actly what I meant and what I ; know to be true." she flung back at her. "as you will find if you wait '• long enough." "Then it's all your fault," Coral screamed at her. "You can't tell ; me your mother would—" ; "Miss Easton." A heavy hand fell ! unceremoniously upon her shoul- ] der. "We have had enough outrageous scenes here. This is a house of mourning. One more word out of you and I'll send you to spend the night in the town jail." Coral flung back her head and | opened her lips to reply, but the ; sight of Chief Forrest's angry , countenance was too much for her > craven soul. Her head drooped and | she went back to her seat on the j davenport, where Joseph Barry i fussed with pillows to make her j comfortable. "Mr. Barry." Captain Lancy's stern voice startled Barry so that the pillow he was placing behind Coral's head rolled to the floor. "We will resume where we left off. 1 asked you if you knew of Miss Easton's engagement?" "How could he?" Interrupted Coral impudently. "I didn't know it, myself, until just the other day." "What day, to be exact?" smoothly inquired Lancy. Coral glanced at Neal. He wasn't even looking her way. I'd hate to be engaged to a man as indifferent as he appeared to be. "Day before yesterday," she muttered sullenly, seeing that Neal had no intention of helping her out"Please give your name and explanation fd being here?" Captain Lancy's voice had resumed its earlier courtesy. "Duncan Abbott. I came here for a vacation last summer. Met Miss Dutton here and we returned together this year. We are to be married this fall." Captain Lancy turned with an approving smile to Rhoda. "You, I believe, are Miss Dutton." "I am." "And you?" He was looking at me. "Sally Gordon. I—" I intended to give him my reason for being at Hill House, but he interrupted me. "Where are you from?" "Albany, New York." "You came here by automobile yesterday?" "Yes." "When did you leave Albany?" "Yesterday morning." "If that is true, what were you doing ten miles the other side of Winnetaumet at four-twenty yesterday afternoon?"

TWO MILLION AMERICANS NEVER SAW AN ELEPHANT That's why the circus will come back next year. "Same old stuff," says you. Same old animals. Same old stunts. Same old ballyhoo. Maybe a few new frills, but mainly the same old circus you saw when you were a kid. All right! All right! But every business man should be compelled by law to see the circus every year because of the Great Advertising Truth taught therein. For the same old elephant walks around, but between the time when you'll see the elephant walk around next year, two million Americans will have arrived in this funny old world.* AND that is why, year after year, the elephant wallrs around. Each year brings throngs of citizens who never saw an elephant. Who never lasted Kellogg's Corn Flakes nor ate Bananas. Who don't even know who operates the retail stores here or which stores have been serving home owners in Ludington for over three generations. Every year two million babies are born. Every year one million boys reach the girl-crazy age and start shaving the down off their chins for the benefit of a million young women who suddenly become acutely clothes-conscious and cosmetic-conscious. AND year after year, in spite of everything, two million young folks up and get married and start new homes. Every day in every year new people become interested in ads of diamond rings, electric refrigerators, twin beds, plumber's friends, lawn mowers, baby carriages, high hats and evening gowns. Yesterday they weren't interested. Today, they are. Tomorrow other people will be. That's why it pays to keep on advertising, and advertising, and advertising. The market is not static, but changing. You're not advertising to a grandstand, but to a parade always on the move, continually bringing new eyes over your ads. Good advertising of good merchandise never loses its pull. Even if to you your message seems so familiar as to be trite, to some readers it will be NEWS, with a capital "N". t The girl going away to college is just as excited about finding things to wear as was her grandmother on u similar occasion. To the boy who has made up his mind to pop the question next Sunday night, your ad about diamond rings may be the most interesting item in the newspaper. There are stores advertising today who were advertising when Martin Van Buren was president. To some readers these ads are "old stuff", but to others they are as interesting as is an elephant to a kid who never saw one. The circus will return, gay and noisy and flambouyant. Throngs of kids will stare with goggle-eyed wonder at that strange new animal, the elephant. Other folks who never saw a circus before will conceal their astonishment beneath an air of sophistication. They'll betray themselves with louder laughter when the clowns crack jokes that Noah told the anmials in the ark. It is possible that some people never heard these jokes before? Quite so ... and it's even more possible that a lot of people who OUGHT to know more about your merchandise DON'T. So the elephant walks around, serenely confident that among every blase group that says: "That's just an elephant," some eager voice will cry, "So THAT'S an elephant!" His benign wisdom seems to apprehend the fact that every year brings two million new Americans who never saw an elephant. The only way to deny these truths is to say, "There ain't no such animal as an elephant." Author Not Known. "It (Is estimated that there Is a 20 percent change In the population right here In Mason county every year. New kids, new families from the outside.. If you want their patronage keep telling 'em.
