She had a note to write. Deliberately she avoided her apartment or her office. She didn't want to write it where she could let go.

BY RODNEY DOTCIIEn XEA Strvta Staff Csrmasadsal TTASHJNGTON.-C h a i r m a n " James K Landis of the Se-curities and Exchange Commission, after prayer and thoughtful consideration, has decided to stay on the job in Washington instead of returning to his law professorship at Harvard. That doesnt mean that Landis or anyone else outside of Wall Street is especially satisfied with the record of SEC to date. He and many others who were once enthusiastic over the securities and stock market acts are disappointed at the commission's failure to grapple successfully with the many complex problems presented by the securities markets. The SEC staff is weak. There has been constant dissension between a large group known as "Wall Street stooges" and another group made up mostly of liberals, many of them dissatisfied with Landis Personal jealousies and bickering have been rife. This, plus the difficulty of getting able men to work for the salaries offered and the caliber of men picked by former Chairman Joe Kennedy with tacit approval of Landis and other commissioners has made it impossible for SEC to present a strong front on any major issue. The result is that Landis. originally considered a crusader against Wall Street malpractices, is unwilling and perhaps unable to crusade. - CO far the SEC has merely worked out problems as to information for security buyers and none too well, according to liberals who still talk about the; Northern States power case, in 1 Nor is that all.

We do not love each other any more. More than that, there is nothing to say. Let's forget yesterday with our plans for tomorrow to be spent together. I am happy for both of us that we have learned now. Do not feci that you have failed me or that I have failed you. Let's only remember that once we were happy and that I sincerely hope that the tomorrows I will not and cannot share with you will be filled with all the things that will make you happy. This is my farewell. Sincerely, Linda. She read and folded it, slipped it in an envelope and sealed it.

He remembered the last case in which Thome had become involved and was certain that a firm reminder would end the entire episode and convince Thorne that such a night had not been. He told Linda that lie would protect her utterly; he wouldn't write to Thome, he would ask him to come to his office and telephoned the man while Linda was in his office. His invitation was a command. Thorne agreed to meet the lawyer at noon. And so simply, the episode did end. ' There were other things that Linda had to do that day toward setting her world in order.

An old woman thrust a wilted bunch of violets almost into her face. Their fresh, sweet scent rose to her nostrils. She took them in both her hands for a minute and gave the old woman a dollar. She stood there for a moment looking at the violets and thinking of Pete. Pete had loved her! She had to know if he still did! She had less than an hour. But if she hurried she could catch The Chief, the eastbound train. And she would find Pete Gardiner in New York. She had to do it! She pinned the violets to the belt of her gray gown, pulled her grey turban on, slipped into a velvet moleskin jacket and picked up the small bag she had packed. A telegram to Beulah would settle all the affairs of packing and renting the apartment. She wasn't happy, she was ecstatic with anticipation when, breathless, she made the railroad station just in time to catch the train. There was no time to make reservations. She had to haggle with the conductor. "Why, Linda! You may share my drawing room." It was Honey Harmon. A fly (but not a very big one) in the ointment.

Feeling Utterly mad, Linda told her; she might have it as soon as she liked and didn't pause to question herself or her insane desire to be out of the place where she had been both happy and miserable. She wanted to be away from every association that would remind her of herself. She would like to take a hall-bedroom somewhere and lose her identity. Not that she had the faintest idea of doing anything of the kind. As usual, she intended to pursue the routine of her life in a new home environment.

She didn't really care what happened that day but summons to the producer's office brought a swift, unpleasant thrill. Was this the way a writer was let out of the company? Why should she be afraid? Her bills were paid and she had nothing to fear. She smiled at someone on her way to Leonhardt's office; she didn't know whom. She opened the door softly with a cold little hand.

It is Cooos Island, named so because of the great number of coconuts that grow wild there. Here Spanish and Portuguese pirates, who looted the rich towns along the South American coast, are believed to have landed and left their riches before being captured.
