The regular Saturday edition had already gone to print. The extra will be out in half an hour. Theres' nothing you especially want printed, I suppose?" "Nothing." Lena's voice was low with despair.

Solitary Play Wins Checkers Approbation WAUKEGAN, 111., U,R)--Wil liam J. Wood has played checkers nearly every night for 30 years but lost all his competition long ago and began trying to beat himself. He played the champions at various fire stations until all his opponents decided to look for easier competition. Then he began playing imaginary opponents, who gave him the toughest problems he could: conceive. After he created a situation, Wood studied it until he found a solution. He kept a record of tbe problems and their answers. Last fall he sent them to the National Checkers association and asKed if the officers didn't think he was pretty good as a problem composer. They wrestled with his contributions and agreed. Wood received a certificate from the association announcing he was the national checkers problem composer champion. like Ellsworth weeks ago.

Can't we at least postpone saving the democracies until they make up their minds they wish to be saved?--Lincoln Star, told herself with a finality that was almost reassuring. She wouldn't live--couldn't live. "There's no news from him?" she asked, for what seemed like the thousandth time, and Mrs. Morriss shook her head. "We should be hearing soon." She tried to be reassuring as she went back into the hall to answer once more the shrilling telephone. * t * "I've got to go to Jim," Lona announced finally, when another half hour had dragged by with no news. Repeated calls to the police station had given them no information. Mr. Rankin was still held, was all a bored sergeant would give out. "I've got to find out what's happening to him!" "But, my dear, if he wanted you to stay here . . . " Mrs. Morriss protested, quietly. "He was only thinking of me. I never should have left him. I've ;ot to go! Don't you see! He may needing me." Her voice broke as Dinah called excitedly from the hall- "Ellis Langforth is out here. Lona. He says he's got to see you. It's important. He says there's news." News! For a moment Lona brightened. Then she remembered that Ellis Langforth was, after all, a newspaper man. "Can't I slip out the back door?" she begged Mrs. Morriss. "I can't see any of these reporters. I've got to get to Jim! Please!" She was so obviously on the verge of desperation that Mrs. Morriss ceased trying to dissuade her. "I'm going with you," she said, instead. "Dinah can keep Ellis busy while we slip out." "There's two more with Ellis," Dinah said, her face glowing excitement. "They say they have big news for you. They wouldn't tell me what it is. One of them is a photographer--" "Please, Mrs. Morriss, let's hurry." Lona was already at the kitchen door, waiting. "I don't want to see anybody--but Jim," she added to herself, almost in a mutter, as Mrs. Morriss paused before the mirror to adjust her hat. "Hurry!" she urged again, and her voice was so pleading that the older woman took her hand and held it in hers as they went swiftly through the kitchen and peered cautiously out the back door.
