Bitter rvt Mildred, Stephen permits Pamela to announce their engagement when she tells him that is the only way he can break with Huck. Huck commands Harold to prevent Pamela's marriage under fear of exposuro concerning a forged check. Harold says he can't force Pamela, so Huck. plans to dispose of Stephen. Ho has ons of his gang frame him for stealing a firm car. and the do- tective arrests him after finding »• roll of bills, a. gun, and the auto keys which have been planted in his room. Pamela refuses to see Harold and breaks her engagement to a. jailbird. But. Mildred goes to him and promises help. She begs Harold to ex-1 pose Huck and help her free Stephen, after he contesnes Huck has threatened both of them. But he evades telling her the truth and she works on alone. Finally, she gets a. threat over the phone to "lay off" and realizes it is the voice of a gangster. Mildred phones Harold to come over to her, but while he is dressing in his room Huck enters and tells him to stay away from her, under penalty of being exposed. Maddened, Harold defies him and they fight. Suddenly Harold realizes his danger and tries to call help. NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY CHAPTER XXXII "AS Harold opened his mouth to yell for help Huck viciously clapped a hand to his lips. The boy fought j desperately but ineffectively. It was too late to save himself now. Tha rest of Huck Connor's mur derous act was quickly carried out. Holding and silencing Harold with ona hand, Huck dealt him a stunning blow with the other. Them was not. even a. cry as the i hurtling body left, the window and crashed through space to death below. Then, almost instantly, Huck set himself to follow thfi dictates of his rapidly working- brain. He flicked out his handkerchief and ran it over the woodwork of th» window to remove, any fingerprints h» may have, left on it. A quick survey oC tho room assured him that little was amiss- A. chair overturned. He swift movement. His glance then fell upon the 1a- bl« that held thB ash tray with ihe butt of the. eigaret he had smoked. Huck was too wise TO smoke a, spn- [cial brand by which he. could be traced, but he knew that Harold did. Quickly he spread his handker- cief on the table, tool; up the tray with a corner of it and emptied the contents on the linen. He ran his coatsleevo over the table, and then, satisfied that' he has destroyed all clews, turned to leave, the room. At the door he stood listening for to i "Tt's a safe guess h» didn't slip," 'the third man remarked, looking- at tho thick carpet under the window^ 'And it's just as safe to b«t that he didn't go out of that "window on his own power," the man who had climbed to the sill declared emphatically. ''I-iOoks like, murder., boys." Their task became griniTCrom that moment. The room was searched asain b u t nothing to support their theory was found except, the fact that in going; over the window a second tlm« they could see that the woodwork had been recently wiped. Tho second window in the room. which was closed, showed a. slight accumulation ot con] dust on the sill. :" It was obvious that an open win- i dow would have collected a greater j amount of. dust had it not been removed. And the .removal was too thorough to have been done by the dead boy's clothing as he was sped j to his death. . '. < "How about the door?" one of the! officers asked of th» hotel detective. ".Did Flannigan find it locked when he was -put on guard?" "No," tho hotel man said, "but that doesn't mean much. I've had on her .lacy pillows, whore she wept, to warn the boy and his sister time fitfully'and pitied herself for having i and again about leaving- their doors unlocked." "Well, we can't do anything .more here," the officer stated. "Come on, Bill, we'll make our report." When, the report was filed it established a theory of the case that was in direct disagreement with the popular belief that Harold. Judson had died a suicide's death or been the victim of a. fatal accident. But ths police preferred to keep their theory to themselves. They lost her only brother, would have j been amused at the result, of Rose < Poberlin's attempt to orcata an atmosphere* fit to receive, her. ••' Her amusement, would have been shortlived, however, if Huck's determination to introduce her to the Poberlins'had been known to' her.

Now that the arguments are over and the ships are actually to be built, it might be a good thing if we,could quiet down about if, It tjnight help relieve the tensity of the si'tua- 'tion a bit. OIL CONTROL It really looks as if something is going to be done to control the lawless and wasteful production of petroleum. A recent conference of oil men in New York resulted in an agreement to limit this year's production 1o last; year'?. It means cutting, present production at the rate of 200,000 barrels for the year. This is necessary, they say, TO avoid a surplus of production over consumption. Diversification of activities thus tends to stabilize earnings of the holding company, whose securities have been introduced to the public. The Starrett Corporation controls Starrett Brothers, Inc., one of the country's outstanding construction concerns; the Starrett Investing Corporation, the purpose of which is to finance realty operations, and the Wall and Hanover Street Realty Company, owners of Wall Street's newest skyscraper, fully rented before -opening for occupancy. All phases of the realty and construction business have been combined, therefore, to the advantage of the individual units comprising the parent company. Earnings Expected to Be About $3 «. Share on Common Securities of the company to be outstanding include $17,000,000 subsidiary bonds. $17,200,000 6 per cent preferred stock and 380,000 shares of common. Inasmuch as construction business of j Starrett Brothers, Inc., is handled almost entirely on ihe basis of cost plus a fixed fee or a fee representing a percentage of the cost and revenues from the new office building can be fairly closely determined, earnings of the parent company can be estimated with reasonable accuracy. On this basis it is expected profits in the first year, of operations will be sufficient to show a balance for the common stock of at least $3 a share. if such there really was in the case, on guard. A man was sent in haste to the funeral director's establishment and arrived before Harold's clothing had been removed. A minute inspection of his belongings was made and all metal or hard objects taken for possible fingerprint clews. * • * Shortly thereafter all doubt that Harold had met a violent death at the hands of an assassin vanished from the minds oC those who learned that on the boy's silver belt j buckle was a flear thumbprint that I did not belong to the belt's dead owner. The funeral director was summoned and avowed that no one had touched the belt in his establishment, to the best of his kno-wledge. To avoid working on a misleading clew the police obtained thumbprints of all persons who might have touched the belt after the 'tragedy. None corresponded with the. print on the belr. .1 ..• •••-,..•..

The United States government may he expected to look after that phase of the matter. DRAFTING EVERYTHING Bernard M. Bavuch, who was chairman of the War Industries Board during ihe last Y'ar, has been thinking pretty hard about %yhat to do in the next. Avar. It sounds tine to say, "Draft men, labor and money," but you can't do it. The first is fairly easy ; 'Ihe other two are difficult. But here is fcomelhing you can do—fix prices. He tells the Reserve Officers' Association ihat he woultMike to have power givt^n the President, ''whenever Congress determines /Uut th,e emergency exists or is threatened, due to additional earnings which should be derived by Starrett Brothers, Inc., from contracts obtained during the balance of this year and due to higher rates received from the investment unit. Building Construction A Vital Economic Industry I Building; construction is one of the coun- itry's most important industries and. has become a vital factor in American economic life. More than $52,000,000,000 has been invested in new buildings in the. United States since the war, it is estimated. The, present era of consolidations and mergers, with its colossal enterprises and tremendous contracts, necessitates in the building industry construction companies having large capital resources and experienced and comprehensive organization. The. Starrett Corporation seems fully equipped to meet these requirements. made his way to his own rooms. « w » Harold's body was discovered soon atterward. A guest on a lower floor had glimpsed a falling object as it passed his window and instantly called the office to report his belief that it was a body. Mr. Dazel himself rushed to the roof of the adjoining building after a. glance from ths nearest window. But first he stopped to send word to the house, physician. _ The assistant, manager and several other hotel attaches followed. They found the body lying f^ace downward. But enough of the features showed to make its identity recognisable. ••My God! It's Harold .ludson'." Mr. Dazel cried and went down on his knees : beside the body. He readied out his hands. Someone touched him on the shoulder. "Have to leave it as it is for the medical examiner, sir. He's done for." Mr. Dazel sprang to his feet. "Call the police," he. ordered his assistant 'And you, Curntnings, fetch some blankets." That was all they oould do. The house physician arrived or the scene shortly afterward and pro nounced the boy dead. ;it was dark, a glorious sapphir darkness, beforft the, medical evam- iner gave permission for the body to be moved.
