The Rig Seven foottmll championship piled up by Ludington high school Orioles in their season just closed presents a record which approaches the believe-it-or-not stage. It becomes the eighth Hig Seven championship in the past five years—four football conference titles and four basketball conference titles hi the five-year period. Such a record is not luck. It is training for teamwork. It is perseverance, in practice and in games, toward a goal bigger than any one player. It is something in which the I/udington coach and his squad could this year give a few profitable demonstrations at the University of Michigan. The danger of too many victories, lies in the habit of taking them for granted. A squad of boys and their mentor worked hard for this year's championship, as for those of the past. Another title is an easy thing to expect, but . never-so easy to acquire. It is still the product of long dril Is, defai 1 ed prejwira.ti on and Joyalty. So, for us, w« are every bit'as proud—or even more so —-of tlie eighth title as of the first. It is a remarkable record of titles. The titles, however,--are only the marks on the report card at the end of the term. What is really important is the record of achievement and interest which they signify. To Coach Mitchell Read and his champion Orioles, congratulations again on a lesson in the benefits of training and teamwork. WRITTEN TOR AND RELEASED BY CENTRAL PRESS ASSOCIATION The 1939 definition of a deer hunter remains the same: He for she) is still a person who can make unmistakable identification of buck fur down the barrel of a gun before pulling any triggers. In other words, deer hunters are requested to remember that this nation is not at war. And America's best bet is to keep Euroi>e wondering what we are going to do about it, then do nothing. A woman in Indiana, set nine duck eggs under a hen got 18 ducklings. It seems that a person can-'t -even count their ducks before they are hatched. THAT PUZZLE 67 LOGAN CLENDENING, M. D. Tooth Pain from Sweets What ft the mechanism of pain tn a tooth on the contact of tweets? Thin is a fact bat it is without any very, definite explanation. Of course, it means that there is a cavity in the tooth. Contact with rweets does not cause pain in the case of an intact tooth. We must assume that the nerve endings, which are Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest only, and then only through his column. exposed in the dentine of a cavity are sensitive to the chemical stimulus pfjBweets. The enamel overlying the dentine of the tooth acts as a protector, and if the tooth is exposed close to the gum margin where the enamel stops, pain will be caused in this fashion. It is, of course, easy to explain the effect of temperature, hot liquids, or cold liquias, upon tooth pain. Under any circumstances, the pain is a protective device of nature 'and means: Go see your dentist • • • \ Aching Corns When It Rains Why do corn* hurt during damp or rainy weather? The relation of barometric pressure to pains of the joints < and of calluses, such as corns and scars, is principally due - to changes in toe .caliber of the blood vessels and to cfctfnges in blood pressure at this time. £p a aeries of about 1,000 rheumatic patients, this symp- top was acknowledged in over ' everal children's doctors whethei his was a good practice. Their re dies were as follows: "There is no adequate explana- ion for the common practice oi dding bacon to the diet of babies." "If it is done, as is commonly said, to give the baby something to chew >n, other articles of diet could b< used to better advantage, such at toasted bread crusts or zweibach." "The ase of bacon in the diets if babies and small children was or many years a fairly common ractice among doctors, bat I think t has pretty well died out. It it a little difficult to tell why it had o long a popularity." "Bacon contains no nutritional 'actor besides the fat and protein." "The old-fashioned bacon rind hat some babies got in a certain trata of society is fortunately no onger encountered and I believe had no real standing with physicians." QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Mrs. J. M.: "Is it all right to give beer to a baby from six months in til he is several yean old? My >aby is nine months old, and I have refused to let him have any. My nother-in-law says that it will not mrt him, as it will only make him sleep." Answer—Good heavens, no! It is not all right to give a baby, six months old, beer; nor six years old. t is very bad, A baby, nine months old, will sleep all right, and beer will ust make it sleep an unnatural, profound sleep. I think a good, old- fashioned mother-in-law fight, so that she would stay away for a year, would do your household good. M. H.: "What is the average o* normal blood pressure of a person at the age of 21?" Answer—The systolic pressure— that is, when the heart is in contraction—should be from 100 to 120. The diastolic—when the heart is opening or in relaxation—should be 70 to 80. The figures refer to millimeters of .mercury pressure. There is no definite normal; the blood pres« sure, like every functioning thing in the body, change*. Of bad for babiet i ;docV>rt and mothers ^ ^ -^ ««WWon o . CHAPTER THIRTT-WOUR < WHEN LANCY said he would call Orton In, I looked at Alan and he looked at me. I don't know what he was thinking, but my thoughts ran something like this: Hovr on earth can even a detective call a man into his office and question 'him about his successful love affair before the discarded lover, without making the latter look ridiculous? But I was reckoning without Lancy'a years of experience. Such a situation was no obstacle to him. When Bruce Orton appeared, Lancy merely asked him to sit down and remarked pleasantly that he had some questions he wished to discuss with as there. Orton nodded. There was, apparently, nothing in the grouping of us together to disturb him. He took prompt advantage of Lancy's permission to us all to smoke if we pleased, but the lighted match burned down to his fingers and he dropped it with a yelp of pain without lighting the cigaret he held. The jubilance faded from his face and a bewildered stricken look grew there as he listened to Lancy's words. "You may be surprised at the topic I wish to discuss, Orton," began Lancy, suavely, "but it is necessary to the course of this investigation." He looked searchingly at Orton, who again nodded affirmatively, and the detective went on: "I want to know what you told Miss Peake last night which caused her to break her engagement to Murray and agree to marry you?" It was a sledge hammer blow delivered in a crisp authoritative manner which held Orton's eyes spellbound on Lancy's until the flame of the match licked his fingers. "Ouch!" he cried, and dropped the match upon the floor, where it Bared for an Instant and then turned to black cinder, unnoticed by either Lancy or Orton. "So THAT was it," he muttered under his breath. Then, quickly: "Who says Josie was engaged to marry Murray?" "I do." Alan's voice was stead" vnd even. Orton wrenched his gaze from lancy to Alan. The truth must have oeen plainly discernible in the lat- :er's blue eyes, for Orton turned promptly back to Lancy. He rumpled his thick light hair with an insteady hand, as he said: •This is a blow to me. I didn't Iream what I said to her influenced ler decision. I'll tell you about that ater. I suppose I'll have to?" His roice held a questioning inflection. "You will." Lancy's voice was lard. "You had no business to tel &er anything which you had not told 'the police." "I didn't tell her. At least, nol the way you mean." At this about face on Orton's part, Lancy's forehead wrinkled into a black scow He started to speak, but Orton continued: : "I think I'd better go back and tell you a bit about things so you'l understand my position." The scowl slowly faded from Lancy's face "That would be best," he commented coldly. It was easily seen that Orton, by his contradictory statement, had aroused the de tective's distrust "I met Josie Peake last winter I knew I wanted her for my wife the moment I saw her. But—I do not want a woman who loves an Other man." His voice hardened That long chin of his, which I hac previously declared determined and ruthless, jutted forward in a threat ening manner. "If she loves you," his pale eyes swept to Alan, "you can have her But if she says she loves me, I'l keep her though the devil stands back of you." "Agreed," rapped out Alan "We'll abide by her decision." "I came here this summer fo one reason only: To win Josie. was about discouraged and ready to go home. I couldn't pin her down to anything, when her mother wa; murdered. Since then I haven't sail a word to her about marriage un til—last night. I shouldn't hav then, except for what happened.' He was silent for a bit while w waited eagerly for what was com ing next. 1 bate to ten you this, but SCOTTVILLE News Prom Mason County's Second Largest City, Agricultural and Dairying Center MRS. FRANK BARCLAY, Correspondent (Telephone: Office, No. 1; Horn* 126-F-14.) special talk of the evening and Rev. King also gave a short talk. Rupert Stephens Sr. explained the main purpose of the meeting, explaining that if the entire sum was not raised no pledges would be binding. Pledges were then received, one of $1,000 being the pledge of the The Band Mothers the sponsoring a pie social to be held during the social hour of the Parent-Teacher association meeting Thursday evening, Nov. 16, at the school gymnasium. Hot dogs will be on sale and free coffee, cream and sugar will be served. As a special feature of the social, a cake will be awarded. Every one is invited to come and have a good time and at the same time help make the band a year-round possibility. This is also "fathers" night and every band father is urged to come and help make the meeting a success. The rural parents are special guests and the fathers in the city are urged to attend to help make the evening pleasant for them. During the jevening the sum ~ pledged and o " came in which will raise to nearer $3,500. The committees in charge are the more happy about the outcome, especially as no one was urged to make a pledge, all being free will. This will lift the burden of debt from the church and will make the work of carrying on much easier. The outside of the church has recently been improved by having the broken cement work replaced and' made solid again. SOCIETY WILL M.EET *I told Josle that 1 was sure Coral Easton and Ncal killed her mother,' said Orton. suppose It's the only way." At Lancy's curt: "It is," he went on: I told Josie that I was sure Cora' Easton and Neal killed her mother. I—" "Are you sure?" demanded jancy, threateningly. "I'll tell you that when I get to t." Orton's voice was blandly disregarding. "I begged her to watch :hem, not to trust either one of ;hem. It wasn't hokum. I meant what I said, as you'll find out. She asked how I dared accuse Neal of such a thing. I told her I knew something which definitely linked :hem both with the crime. That I believed they would kill her as quickly as they did her mother if she stood in their way. She asked if I intended to tell you. I said no, [ wouldn't bring more trouble upon tier. Then she began to cry and I— well—then I asked her again to marry me, and she said yes." He moved restlessly. "After telling her I wouldn't spill what I know, the very next morn- Ing I have to do It." "Don't you think that's a duty you owe the public?" demanded Lancy. "Murder is murder, you know, whether it's done by someone you know or don't know." "Duty! What do I care for duty? It's your job, but not mine." "You know the penalty for holding information from the police." Lancy's voice was suave, yet there was a threat in his tone. "I know, and I'm spilling what I .know, right now J'm no story book hero, going to jail in place of the right guy. Don't think it! Yet I hate to let Josie down." "Perhaps your story won't let her down. There may be a different interpretation to be placed on what you know." "No chance! Neal and Coral are as guilty as—well, that woman's a bad actor. I thought so when I first saw her. Why Neal had to get mixed up with a woman like that!" Orton's voice was heavy with disgust. "Suppose you tell what you knov/ and let me be the judge," suggested Lancy mildly. "Right, sir. The night of the murder was foggy as the deuce, as you know I think it made us all a little mad or we never would have done such a silly thing as play hide and seek in the grounds." Orton smiled a little shamefacedly. "I haven't done such a thing since I was a kid. "We did it anyway, fooled around until almost half past eight. I wanted Josie to ride down to the beach with me, but she refused, said she had some work to do on the books. So I started back to the cottage alone. The fog was coming In heavier every minute. I was almost over to my cottage, going slowly, you understand, because I couldn't £pe three feet in front of me, when" I heard Neal's voice.

The Scottville high school band I were guests of the St. Simon's i school Wednesday, giving the didn't pay any attention to what ] assembly program. he said, just noted that he was speaking. Then I heard Coral answer him. "I heard her words all right. Her voice was high and shrill. I judged she was in a temper again. This is what she said: 'Just what do you think you accomplished by last night's work? Are you going to try the same game tonight?' Neal answered, but again I didn't hear what he said. "I didn't thim; anything of it then. It didn't mean a thing to me, but later that night, after Mrs. Peake was killed and I heard that Mrs. Rutherford's sickness the night before was from poison, I remembered what I heard Coral say. I concluded she and Neal poisoned the whiskey and, if they did, they killed Mrs. Peake as well. There you have it all." Orton clamped his lips together and glared at Lancy. My heart was lying somewhere down under the soles of my shoes. Had I given my love to a killer and not only a killer but a matricide as well ? I was sick in every inch of my body. I could hardly breathe as I waited for the detective's re- piy- "Hu-um! That does sound oad. but— What time did you say this was, Orton?" "It was exactly • eight-thirty when I left the lounge. I looked at the clock there. I went directly to my cottage. It couldn't have been more than five minutes later that I heard them talking." If a star rocket had burst In my face, I couldn't have seen more glittering points of light. I thought I should faint. Twice I tried to speak and failed to utter a sound. When I finally found my voice the men were looking at me surpris- The group were welcomed by Captain Kyle Piercy, leader of St. Simon's band, who expressed his pleasure at having the other school with them. Rev. Gordon Grant and Superintendent Arnold Carlson, as well as a delegation of the band mothers, accompanied the band to Ludington and were also introduced.

Maurice Stiles, leader of the Scottville I group, received many pleasant i comments on the work of his band. Later the band was shown about the school and light refreshments were served. More such events-would lead to a closer comradeship and understanding between schools and communities.

"Are you ill?" demandec Captain Lancy. "No—no," I stammered, "b—but Neal was in the lounge at that time. He didn't go out until quite a few minutes later. I KNOW," as they looked incredulously at me. "If you don't believe me, ask Rhoda or Duncan or Pauline. We were all in the lounge together." "Well, you ought to know what you're talking about," exclaimed Orton, "and tf you do, I'm glad.
