I Tfie FCC now is guided by a nil- ' Jiig laid down in'the so-called May- j (lower'Broadcasting'Corp., case of J»n. 1941. That ruling states that j rsdic stations cannot seiv; '!;e| best interests of the public oy nU- | vocating partisan issues. The commission said in ordering . the hearing that the question ofj radio editorializing is of such iin- j portance that a public hearing is i necessary to decide the issue. | "Free speech" groups rcccnlly' urged the commission to revise its 1941 stand. They contend that radio stations have an obligation to the public similar to that of newspapers. • The groups also po:mca utit there wcic only radio siaaons Irefore the war whereas there are 3,000 now. The 1 FCC sairt it will hear leaders in the field of public opinion, radio industry spokesmen and,others to: "1.

H u >v;irii* Aaiiej (o be "dlscrcc*." JVTANCY took a taxi from the ': hospital inlo town, and did her Tnarkeling, thinking how odd il {< from a tender love scene ito such a domestic task. But An- jdrew was right—life must go on, 'and os decently as two mature, "conscientious people could-moke it peem. f That afternoon she got out the jtrunk which contained her imbiber's wedding gown that Nikki jWas hoping to wear at her own wedding. She, and Nikki and a jcouple of Nikki's friends spent a (delightful afternoon examining the relics. !."• The gown was yellowed to a jtpft golden tint which Nancy nt jjirst decided they could not use. But when Nikki tried the dress on, and the color was so right with lier brown eye.; and amber hair, jihey decided thatMhe whole wcd- jding could be worked out in lones pf ivory and gold. : It; was interesting to do this sort !of planning, lo make their lists, v and draw funny little sketches, and t', laugh hilariously at Ihe little hat Nikki found in Ihc bcl- [tom of the trunk, mashed so Hal JBhe said it was in the latest style. ! The young people finally scal- Jered to dress for the Cadet For- inal at the nearby Naval Air school jthat night, and Nancy, pulling the clutter away, agreed that Andrew -had been right to counsel her lo icaution. There were things to be ;got out of the way—Nikki's wcri- •ding for one. Nancy could not rpoil jthings for Nikki; a month or two (was not long to hold her own Romance in abeyance. UT she found il dirflcull to sct- llc do\vn to a domestic o\'cning alone wilh Malcolm and J\;ac before the living room fire. Malcolm, having talked all clay lo patients, to classes, lo hospital personnel, was always us silent as a clam on his evenings q} home. Nancy should have been used lo Dial— and she was— bul tonight slie could not sit ;md share the restful quiet. She would no down •id pick up the boys' clothes. On the stairs she smcllcd tobacco; a liyhl burned in Martin's open. Martin himself sal reading in his big easy chair; he looked up qiicEtioningly al Nancy. "I'or heaven's sake," she cried, "I thought you'd gone to the dance!" He smiled, gestured toward a cliair. "Come in. Why did yon think I'd gone to I'nc dance?" "You had me send your dress shirt to the laundry the first of the week." He chuckled. "My dross shirt. Well, 'that was largely - wishful thinking, Nancy. The first of Ihc week J, too, thought 1 would bo going lo the dance." Nancy dropped upon (he cushions of his couch. "Bui, what happened? II wasn't patients— ?" 'No, it wasn't. The lady just had olhcr plans." "Susan?" ; ' ' • "Susan." "Wouldn't she go wilh yon?" "She said she would have, bul Woodward asked her first." Nancy gaped. "You mean Andrew Woodward?" "That's exactly whom I mean." Nancy's gray .eyes fiiappcd, her checks were pink. "Why, that's the most awful thing I ever, heard! von, why shouldn't sin go willi him?" "Dnl lie — Does .she like Ijim?" "She must, though she says she docsn'l, especially. J| e asked her, and she could find no reason lo refuse to go." of her wards. I don't go go lo Why should she with him?" "Here, here," Martin advised, his deep voice steady. "Take il easy. As Susan would point out 'o[ Our Boarding House with Maj. Hooplc caught enough control to choose her "Martin," .she said firmly, Ihink yon should let Susan places wilh Or. Woodward." lie laughed. "I tried to persuade lier nol lo .lo this—but he's n much more persuasive man than I am, Nancy." "f didn't know she went wilh lim." "I clon'l Ihink she docs, much." "Martin, why don't you marry Susan?" He col up from Ihe deep chair, strolled around Ihc room, a lull, elim-waistcd man in brown trousers and while shirt. His black '' was roughed upon bis heart :is if his fingers had ploughed through il many times. "Susan thinks she could nol leave Malcolm jus', now." / "That isn't any reason for refusing lo marry you, it she loves j'Oll." x "Then maybe she doesn't." ' "Oh, but slie does!" He shook his head. "I hope she docs. 13m she brings nu the argument of Malcolm needing her, which doesn't seem to me lo be an adequate reason. And she docs accept dales wilh Andrew Woodward—who, I'll admit, is much loo attractive far my pence of mind. Though I do fool myself into thinking he may Ije using Susan lo get lo Doc. lie's a very ambitious ca-veer doctor. Woodward is." Fearing thai Martin's keen eyes would read her thoughts, Nancy leaned forward to pick up one of (he magazines on Ihe low maple table before the couch. Could it be that Andrew had cultivated. Nanry to get lo Malcolm? Looking back lo that morning, she realized that lie had not received her offer in a truly lover-like fashion —and tonight lie was dancing with Susan Terry.
