High peacetime results, many being all-time peaks, were reported by , steel companies, automobile manufacturers, tire makers an-I the electricity industry, for Instance. RrUl] Sal« R|M Retail sales rose to an estimated * 109.000.000.000. up S 12,300,000. 000 and an ail-time high. At the same time manufacturers' shipments of S 171.500,000,000 were up »45,800,000.000 another all - time high. Steel production for 1847 topped 84,000.000 tons, fourth largest total on record, exceded only in the war-years, 1942. 1943 and 1944.

She said he would have lo go. It had been IclighUnt nnd she could have gone •IT listening much longer, but after .EL, a.s she said, she hnd lo gel up n the morning, "I'm a working girl, remember?" ;hc asked, her gray eyes smiling nlo his dark ones. "Well do this again," tie prom- sed, "This is only a beginning.

Now, standing before icr, Uie sentence he had begun died. * • • JANICE stood up. Neither of them '' said anything. Throughout the evening they had found that [hey could talk or reinain silent, and lhat mngical bond that held them remained unbroken. Perhaps that was what bronyh 1 them even closer together now P e rh n ps o ti e— or both - t o ok n n oilier step lhat brought Eric's arm? a foil cid tier, her lips against hi? own. Certainly it was not planned It happened—that was all. There was a long moment tha came from out of nowhere, a mo me t) I f a r m ore hca d y th an a 11> imported wine. "I didn't mean lhat to hnppcn Janice—please believe me," KIT said as he released her. His dark eyes wore grave*. Tin 1 re could b* no doubt of his .^nicei ily. "I know you didn't," Jncilee nn- s we red. She knew, though, Hint (hoy should never have come here tn his bouse. The servants were a. 1 -let 1 ]). The silence mid durkncsa outside this room were loo deep now with the music stilled. "H Jusl happened," Kric said. He looked ax he had earlier in lh« evening, not only much younger, but abashed. His ryes wrre grave and troubled. "I know," Janice snid again. "H wasn't our fimlt—cither of our faults," he said. "But I cannot say lh;il I am sorry, Jnnice." • • * TKH eyes, mcetim* his so candid*• ly. told him Ihiii neilliei' could lie. tin I 11 was she who realized -.at it would be someone's fault —most likely hers If it should h«p- cn nftnin.

It snid lhat postponement ould nol change what had happened to them. He called her Liy endearing term—not lightly, >ut significantly. "You know, of course," he told ler when they reached her door, 'that we wilt have to talk about his, .Innice." He was completely himself now, in control of the sit- lalion. There was a sort of Iri- irnpli- in his words and In his >carhig. There was dismay in Janice's ray eyes raised to his, in her low reply. "Yes, I suppose we shall.** rhen again, she took the situation n her hands. Her voice was gentle, hut exceedingly fir in. "Good night, Or. Holbrook." She .stressed his name slightly—as though she were reminding him that she was only a girl who worked in his oil ice. "It was » lovely evening. Thank you very much." "II was a lovely evening—bill it is 1 who must thank you, Janice." And he, in turn, put an emphnsii on the use of her first name, as it lo make it clear lhat she wan not just a girl whom he employed— and never could be thai again.
