I (UP) — Differences '-etween S«ii- il« and House on stop-gap aid to ', Europ* probably will b« composed I within a week and the bill sent to the White Houae, Congressman Brooks Hays predicted yesterday. In hU weekly newsletter, the Little Rock representative said "it is obvious that Ir the President had waited until Uie regular session to submit tile aid proposal, valuable time would have been lost H winter's cold would have aggravated food shortage problems and would have given tlie Communists another weapon." Hays added thai in his opinion passage of the aid bill will do t great deal to help the Italian and French government! defeat the present Communist uprisings. Hays also urged continued vigilance in the Pacific, pointing out that recently discovered secret documents indicate that the old leadership in Japan Is waiting only for American withdrawal to destroy all reforms and to set the stage for another military autocracy. On the domestic front Hays said that, the administration must share tomcthlng is done about It.

XXXVI "V-YOU'RE just imagining things." Maurine h:d changed again and this time, there was no pretense about her. "Because you hate me. that's why!" "No. I'm not imagining anything. You knew: about Acadia. That first night when it was mentioned while you and Joel were singing together, you knew all about it. You said you'd seen some mention of it on an old map of Uncle David's. But that wai only Her creath caught "No! That much of it wasn't a lie, after all. That's exactly where you did find out about Joel's home town—on one of the Senator's maps." As she turned toward a bewildered Joel, she was trembling with realization. "Joel, don't you see? Don't you understand?" His bright head shook slowly. "Afraid not, Cammie." "I told you once what Uncle David's special interest i« in Washington. He's working on postwar commercial air transportation Joel, if he had a oiar. ot land which included your father's farm —that could only mean that they are planning to buy it up for one ot their dozens of big new air fields. And condemnation prices are always high." "But I was already planning to sell—" "You'd get triple the price from them that your acreage would bring in any ordinary sale! No wonder Maurine has been so anxious to get her hands on it—with or without you." * * • '"PHE younger girl's red lips curved back unpleasantly to show her small white teeth. A kitten-like quality still dune to her. but with no suggestion now of cuddlcsomeness. Her claws were out She was ready to rake with them, ready to scar. Maurine flashed. "So now 1 sup- "Aren't you smart one?" pose you are going marry lim and cash in on the fact that [ had looked over i few of Daddy's papers? Well, Miss Sherlock tlolmes" — and her laugh was aarsh, metallic — "it'll still be in !he family, anyhow!" "I'm listening," rumbled Beeiy, at Cam's shoulder. "But blast me if I can believe it yet She ain't even possible.** Maurine's eyes annihilated him as if they had. been twin atom bombs. "There are a good many novelties left in life, for you, my friend. What's so impossible about wanting an income of my own, that ! don't have to account tor when the Senator gets into a disapproving mood? What's so impossible about wanting to beat him, just once, at one of his own deals — buying in some land he's after cheap, and making him pay for ft through the nose? What's so impossible — ?" "You know," said Beefy — for a sergeant, curiously soft and slow — "this Here's a young one just spoiling for a dose of something 1 bet you the Senator iiever gave her She needs it bad." Joel met his old friend's eye glanced sidewisc toward Maurine and then with a nali-grin lookec back toward Beefy again. "Sergeant.'' he murmured, "would you mind very much seeing that my future wife's cousin gets nome safely to the Dean's hou^e in Cartersville? Of if you should happen to stop alonr the way and make like a top sergeant — " "He wouldn't dare!" Maurine gasped furiously. "No telling " There was a dreamy look i;: Beefy's eyes. "I got kind of an itch in the palm of my nan riglu this ninute." "If you so much as lay jnc (in- ger on me. you — you ape — " "Come on. you!" cut in the ser- VIC FLINT A Call From Camion By MICHAKK O'MALLEY nnd RALPH LANB leant, suddenly hard as nails. If vlaurine had any intention of urther argument, he gave her no time to get started. His big hand closed down hard around her wrist and he was moving her :hrough the doorway before she could gather breath for a shrill, 'You brute. I'll see to it that the; Senate of the United States—I" • • • TT seemed unusually qiliet in the modest lobby, once they were gone. As quiet, Jam found herself thinking, as the Inside of a church: Her eyes were meeting Joel's once more. "Here we are," he said, almost whispering. ^ "Here we are," Cam echoed. "The girl who thought she couldn't fall in-love, and didn't want any more romance in her life. The guy who didn't dare fall in love, because he needs training for a job he has to do. Well—what are we going to do about It, Cammie?" "Whatever it is," she cried, "let's do i'. quick! Oh. Joel, we've made so many mistakes about ourselves and each other. We've had much too little faith." "Look, I'll have the farm money soon. Enough to keep us both until I'm really going. We could get married now. Here. Today. In my old home town." She nodded wordlessly and then she went in.o his arms. The sure confidence in them thrilled her as he held her close. "All those -mistakes!" he sighed. "A.jd to think we've both been this way about each other right through every one of Ihcm. Why, Cam. I've ' ^cr in love with you ever lhat very first kiss." "Which one?" It was absurd to sound so happy. "After the>fire? Or at the Kandy Kitchen, in that milling mob. the afternoon you first came oark to CTartersville?" "Neither one. Four years ago. The very first lime. Cam. remember? I've been waiting for thin one moment ever since then." It had been a moment well worth waiiing for. Depp like their river. • Bright, like the look in their eyes. Exciting, like the ben! of their hearts Ulter heaven. THE END I WO..IBetONG.6KAYtlN6.
