Scots Riflemen Beaten. Scottdale Rifle Club lost a 952 to 937 decision to the Wai worth rifle team o£ Greensburg. THIS FIRST; DiaiieailcneU because she can find no ·work, Lona Ackcrman, whofac father is *ervmpT a life sentence for murder, finds some consolation after telling her troubles to Jim Claridgc, an acquaintance she has decided to trust. Aside from ClandRe, she is alono m the world, jobless and broke. Jim gives Lona a lead for another job and she BDpIics at lE-c oflirc of the Western P.calncs company. Lorni llkci her nc-w ·work, sees more and more ot Jim evc- ujnffs. On Sunday they decide to BO to a nearby lake lor a picnic, NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY) CHAPTER ELEVEN LONA LAUGHED as she climbed into the seat of the screaming .green roadster Jim had borrowed for the picnic at Wichita Jake. It was a ready laugh, that was pure enjoyment. He looked so boyish, sitting at the wneel, his long legs stretched out, his voice half sheepish as/ he assured her the jaunty little car was really a lady despite its loud looks. "I'm sure she Is a lady," she told him solemnly. "Even ladies can be loud on a day like this. Isn't it georgous out?" She sniffed the air as if she had just been released from a long confinement. "Let's speed!" she cried, suddenly, "I want to go fast I'd like to fly.' She laughed again, as the roaOster leaped forward under his willing hand. It was a beautiful ride. The lake, when they reached it, was blue and calm. As they approached it they caught glimpses of it through the bordering pines, glittering in the sun like a huge gem. cut into a million gleaming facets, Jim sent the car careening down almost to the water's edge with a. final flourish, of speed, and turned to Lena triumphantly, and aii odd sense of coming- home gripped her. Stepping from the car, she stood Cor a moment looking up and down the beach searching for familiar landmarks. A stone's throw away she saw a shabby bathhouse, unpainted, and her eyes lighted up with recognition. Eagorly she followed the curve of the shore. Down there would be a cottage--Allen's, wasn't it? Yes, there it was! Above the pinea a thin cloud of smoke Jiung- motionless in the lazy sunshine and she wondered if, perhaps, someone she knew might be there. "Smells g;ood, this place," Jim was looking about approvingly, sniffing the tangy odor of pine the air. She laughed, and reached into the car for her bathing- suit. "Beat you in!" she challenged him, anc ran down the sands to the bath' fcouse. Her bathing- suit was old. She had purchased it in a 5.1 of extravagance the first year she had been at Ardmore's, hoping 1 that some day she might swim again. It had lam in its wrappings in the bottom of her suitcase ever since and, as she donned it now, and stepped up to the bathhouse mirror, she was sure, for a moment, that it was too terribly out of style. Then, as she caught sig-ht of her own slimness, · .green-sheather, her skin white as milk, "her spirits soared again, and like a child let out to play, she iashed out into the beach. Jim was not yet in sight, and she smiled to herself, absurdly pleased at beating him. For a moment she let her eyes wander over the few scattered bathers who lazed in the sun, but she recognized none of them and she felt relieved. It would be awkward to meet any of her old crowd. She was sitting on the sand, lei- ting streams of its gritty warmth xun through her fingers, when Jim ·appeared. At sight of him loping 'down upon her, his tall figure show- ling hard and lean in his bathing isuit, a queer shyness seized her. , "Race you to the float!" she (cried, in an effort to hide It and, wading 1 out, she plunged into the water. She had loved to swim In the old Idays, and had come close to being ! the champion of her crowd. As she cut through the blue ripples, her white arms flashing above her head, she was suddenly glad that there was one thing, at least, she could do well. Behind her she heard Jim splashing to overtake her, and she quickened her stroke, finding her old ease more and more. When ·she finally climbed up on the bobbing .float out in the middle of the 'Jake, he was barely beside her, and she laughed at the look of admiration he bent on her. "Whew!" he ejaculated. Tou're enre a swimmer, girL Where did Jyou learn?" i "Right here," she told him, his At sight ot Jim loping down npon her, a queer shyness seized her. praise warming her heart. "This lake is an old haunt of mine.** "I didn't think you could learn to swim like that in fresh, water, | Mean to tell me you've never been! near the ocean?" He looked down' at her, the water dripping from his · wet hair, giving his lean face a curiously boyish look. Remembering: suddenly the miles he had wandered from his home in far-off, almost mythical California, her brief moment of triumph vanished and she felt shy again. They sat on the float for a long time, talking; as they swayed to the gentle motion of the waves. Somehow the proximity oC the water seemed to make him loquacious, and he told her fascinating tales of the many cities in which he had worked. Listening, Lona found herself wondering about him anew. Beyond the one mention of his sister that first night when he had been trying to re-assure her, he had never really told her anything about himself. He never talked, as she did, of his family, of hia schooling, of his background. Until now she hadn't even connected him with the ocean, "Tell me, what did you do before you started all this wandering?" she asked, idly, and was startled at the look that leaped Into his eyes. It was as if she had hurt him, somehow. 4 I guess I've always been a wanderer," he said, vaguely, and fell silent, staring out across the lake, all the brightness gone from his face. Dabbling her feet in the water, Lona watched him, troubled and wondering, wishing she could recall the words that had changed his mood. They ate their lunch on a flat- topped rock to which Lona, proud of her knowledge of the place, led him. It was a queer lunch that set her laughing as she unpacked it. A man's choice. Thick sandwiches of hamburger from a corner stand, pickles in a paper carton, a whole pie, and a thermos bottle of steaming coffee. Lona giggled as she tried lo :fit her mouth over one ol the huge sandwiches. "I like 'em that way,** Jim ; sured her, complacently. "A fellow can get a grip on these. Boy, there's ·been many a time when I'd have given my right eye for a hamburger like this!" "They are good*^ Lona found herself devouring hers hungrily. After the exbileration of the water she was starved. And It, was such fun to eat like this. * They had finished their coffee when she caught sight of a bathing party coming- along the sands from the Allen cottage, and her heart jumped. Gertrude Allen was leading, and among the girls following her was another familiar face. Facing them, swift panic seized Lona. All the hurt of those last days in Bridgewater came rushing back; :hose days after her father had jone away, and she had beea dropped by everybody, stared at and cut by these very girls. Would they cut her now, she wondered? Before Jim! She knew suddenly that it would hurt far more to be cut in front of Jim. Shrinking, she wished she had never come here. She should have ·cnown better. Following ner eyes, Jim took hi the strolling girls. "Friends of yours?" he asked. "I--don't know." Had she looked at him she would have seen a look of understanding leap into his eyes. Swiftly he calculated the distance to their parked car. "Shall we--go?" he asked^ his voice carrying an added tenderness. "We can slip over to the ear beforcr they get here." For a moment Lona was tempted. Then she threw up her head"No!" she said almost fiercely. "I want another swirn. Come on." "Good girl!" she heard him. say as she started toward the water- As she approached, a silence fell on the group at the water's edge. For a momen t Gertrude A13en looked at her, startled, then, carelessly, she turned her back and; reached for the red water ball beside her. A whipped feeling caught at Lona. Gertrude Allen had bean' one of her best friends. Wading out through the water* she plunged in fiercely and struct: off toward the middle of the lake.' For a moment she forgot Jim as-" the old bewildered pain possessed 1 her. It was so unjust. She had done nothing--nothing. And .they acted. as if she were a leper! Cutting- Uirough the water "with savage, strokes, she sent herself flying-, forward recklessly. Past the float! she went on out into the rippling-, blue water. In the old days she had 1 often tried to swim the length oC the lake, and she had been on tho point of succeeding when the tragedy that had blasted her life had overtaken her. She remembered that old ambition now and, gritting her teeth, set herself for the grind she had taken so joyously in the past. Thft need to express her outraged feelings put a savage fierceness into her strokes that soon sent her far past the middle of the lake. Jim's voice calling out a worried protest came to her, but she kept on doggedly. She had made three-fourths of the long grind before she realized, suddenly, that she was terribly tired. Her muscles, weakened by disuse, began to protest Her arms went oddly numb and sh» felt famt. But she resolved, savagely, not to call for help and satisfy that crowd of snobs back there. Floating for a moment's rest, she lifted her head for a glimpse of the shore that was her destination. It was farther away than she had thought--terrifyingly far away. (To Be Continued) NEWS BEHIN Continued from Page Four. on the lists of possibles, who is popular and of the right age, is Cardinal Marmaggi, nuncio to Poland. Cardinal Maglione, former nuncio to Paris, also might well become the compromise. Churchmen and diplomats foresee no possibility o£ a change oi international policy in the Vatican state in any event. The prudent and strong doctnnes ol Pius XI were almost unanimously approved in the church. House next year, even without the presidency. The House leadership is now trying to -frighten wayward Democrats into line. Official bogeyman is Pat Drewry, chairman of the campaign committee. A few of his choice words at the Democrat.c caucus seeped out, implying there were a lot of Democrats elected last time by the skins o£ their respective bicuspids. Mr. Drewry has followed up with some statistics now privately in circulation, which show: Sixty-seven Democrats won last time by majorities ol less than five per cent. Ninety-lour piesent Democratic legislators won by a margin of less than 10 per cent. (Bulk of these are in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Illinois.) The moral is that the Republicans might very easily win control of the Republican shrewdness is becoming a matter ol increasingly grave concern to Messrs. Kayburn, Bankhead and Drewry. The Republicans are concentrating their fire, sometimes on only one defective item in a pending bill, and they are winning. They did it on Guam in the naval oil], Gilbertsville dam in the independent offices bill, and the proposed new census building. Democratic leaders are hotly considering every possible means of breaking up the Republican strategy --that is apparently everyone except the step of eliminating such defective items as Guam and Gilbertsville from their bills before presenting them to the House. Democrats begrudgingly give much credit to a newcomer among Republican strategists, Charles Halieck of Indiana. They say he" works close to Leader Joe Martin and joins the frequent assemblies of Messrs. Martin, McNary and John Hamilton at a certain weak tea room, or a stronger tea room in a local hotel. This is the strategy board from which the trouble comes, say the Democrats. tor will undoubtedly be his former secretary, Roy Schroder.
