June 25. <UP1 — A National Labor Relations Board trial examiner ruled yesterday the National Maritime Union <CIO) violated the Taft-Hartley act by insisting on a union hiring hall in its dealings with four Great Lakes ihipping companies. It was the (irst ruling by a board agent on the, legality or the union penrnnce. He worked in the same office with Hugh Linlon nnd knew Him well. He would be able to ascertain whether Teuton's secre-* U*ry had gone away to find another job, wouldn't he? For no tetter had come from Lucy, no message. There were only Genevieve's hints that Lucy had gone away to find work in another city. Meanwhile. Jessica read the papers with mounting interest. AH jfTorLs to identify the girl at the hospital were unavailing. The girl herself refused to talk. She would live, although she did not wish to live. In fact, every precaution had been taken to prevent her from taking a life upon which she placed no value. Again the papers published the picture of the ring. Her ring. She alone could offer a clue to its identity, thought Jessica. Would the ring identify the girl? Shi I NOW! om the thought and refused to acknov/ledge a growing conviction thai the girl might be Lucy. r PHE next afternoon, when she set out to meet David, was clear and cold, and the air in- vigor a tin a; after her long stay in the gloomy house with Tom anc his mother The bright sun lifted spirits which had been dull and heavy. The escape from Tom's presence was a reprieve. Alone with him she became uneasy and possessed by a sense of Ruilt because she could not comfort him in his unhappiness. Tom knew that things were changed. After lhat brief conversation on Sundiiy he made no effort to break through the barrier set up between them. He lavished his affection upon Betsy which fact alternately touched anc then alarmed Jessica. Betsy's response to her father's affectiot might easily make the coming sep- arntion more difficult. For I will not change my plan o leave Tom, Jessica told hersel stubbornly as she left Betsy with Doris and hurried away toward the aus stop. I will not weaken in my esolve. for if I do— She would lose David. She thrust Tom and his prob ems behind her as she entered th lobby of the Mayflower and! sn\ David coming toward her, enge and smiling. Dear David! In hi presence she would meet his blu eyes with the smile he loved, Sh thrilled when he whispered, '"Dar ling!" David caught her arm and hel it close against his as they wet toward the bar. "1 still love yo in -spite of the fact that I haven seen you for a week," he sail "Surprising, isn't it?" She thought of that week, of th terror and the trouble, and her ga spirits collapsed and her dark cyi were serious. "Is it?" she aske "Must we se« one another ever day?" David said roughly, 'Tm afraid. I confess it. Love me?" "Of course." "Are you sure?** "Of course." Then, "Tom's home. 1 * He said indifferently. "What difference should that make? You expected him." HE began lo explain about her fright 0*1 Saturday night, and •r terror when the stranger ought Tom's mollier home. Her elief when Torn appeared lo l*k« ie responsibility from liev shoul- ers. Ax she talked sh* jaw avid's face darken. It would b« iflk'itll to mnkc him understand, see that she con id n' I n in o ff nd leave Tom when he was in 'ouble. She said, "There'n no one els*.,* "1 thought there was a sister?" She looked up quickly and sur- irised an odd expression in David's eyes. He looked away has- ly. Jessica said, "Tom has a sister, ucy. She was Hugh Lin tori's sec- clary." She wailed. David said nothing, Did Ixe kno\v? Did he guess that -ucy was not a I home? Would high Linlon confide in David? She foil her throat lighten and icr heart grow heavy. On the tip ' of her tongue was the question which might Rive her the answer o Lucy's disappearance. Why did she hesitate now? Because she was a coward. Stic didn't want to burden her mind today with Tom's affairs. She wanted to ivoid discussing Lucy. If she knew, really knew, that Lucy was that girl, she would acid still another to Tom's heavy burdens. She would make her own responsibility greater. All this ran through her mind in the few moments she and David sat silent. Then he asked. "Can'l you contact tliis sister? Didn't she leave an address?" "How did you know thwl ahe was nol at homo?" David moved impatiently. "Didn't you say that Blake was dependent upon you? That (here was no one else?" "Yes," she acknowledged but was not satisfied that David had not learned in some other way o( Lucy's absence. Now she was doubting David, for the first time analyzing his simplest statement. Against her will, Tom's troubles intruded and spoiled an afternoon to which she ha'd looked forward with anticipation and pleasure.
