Ark...Jan. 27 (UP) —The Arkansas Supreme Corut yesterday took under submission for possible decision next Monday the question of whether Mayor Earl R!cks of Hot Springs had the authority to name his own chief of police. The case was appealed by taxpayers Hurt Connor and James Shannon from a ruling by Chancellor Sam Garratt upholding Ricks' authority to name George Callahan as Hot Springs police chief. The case was advanced Jan. 5 as a matter of public interest. While Hot Springs is the only city involved in the litigation, the case actually tests certain provisions of the state civil service law for uniformed employes.

This lime* should be no different. He did not know why he had asked his ofllcc nurse, Janice Hilary, to dine with him. He had never thought of doing that before, either. He was surprised to find how pleased };e was with himself for having thought of it. It \ras not just that he rcbcled at the prospect of being alone — he could have 3one to his club or dropped in on any one of a number of his and Blissa's friends; but it seemed, once he had thought of the idea! a very pleasant one. After all, a man should not spend his birthday by himself. And certainly Janice had appeared entirely pleased with his suggestion. She was a nice girl; an extremely nice girl, as a matter of fact. And she really had made herself indispensable during these years with him -was it three or four? He could nol remember. lie hoped she would stay on three or four more, longer if possible. He did not suppose it was possible; a nice 3irl like Janice usually had some young man in the offing. Well, even it she should marry, Janice might be persuaded 10 slay on. A good many young women bung on to their jobs aflcr they were married. They became used to being financially independent. It might be a good idea to increase her salary. She was making an exceedingly good salary now, but it would do no harm to increase it. It was largely due to Janice's excellent management that Eric himself had been nmkine as much as he had these past few years. Of course, too, Elissa's connections had brought him the very best clientele. • • • J^LISSA had been as great a help, in her way, as Miss Hilary had n hers. Elissa, too. was a manager, an organizer. It made Eric's head whirl to think o< all the things his wife had a hand in. He could not remember, (luring the 17 years of his married |jf e having hud any lime actually to call h,s own. Outside of office hours. Elissa, when she was at home, had every moment planned for him. When she wus not—and she did love to dash about the country—he fell into the same pattern she had carved out: his club, IKcir mutual friends, the "important people" whom—with Elissa's help and guidance—he had cultivated. He made no bones about it -he did not think he would have gotten there without his wife. Tonight was something out of the ordinary for him. To have invited someone he liked, pn his own. just to do something he wanted to do, was quite a novelty Quite. Wailing for her now in the appointed meeting place, he found himself a trifle apprehensive. He hoped the evening would turn out successfully.

Miss Hilary, his orttce nurse—he still could not believt it wns she. It was impossible for anyone to look so entirely different. Or perhaps the (null wns his, perhaps he hud never actually looked ;it her like this. 'I'm afraid you're trying to flatter me," Janice snid, the smile in her lovely gray eyes deepening. He realized that she thought he hnd pretended nol to recognize her because of her dollies. Hhe was well dressed; he could not have been Klissn's husband without realizing that. But it was not the clothes that made all Ihe difference. "I honeslly didn't know yon, Janice," he said gravely. "It's as though I were seeing you for the first lime." He had taken her hand in his by way of greeting; h* still held it in his own. She laughed, her, color deepening, and withdrew her hand. They stood in the center of a crowded hotel lobby, but they might have been alone. "I can't look that different!" s h« protested, but her eyes acknowledged that she knew what hi meant. lie slood like an awkward schoolboy, not knowing what to say.
