The people wt saw ana talked to •re terribly afraid the Reds will eventually take over Western Europe. There is a serious lack of strong peacetime leadership In the democracies. Many people believe that if there ii no adequate help from the VS., the people will follow Russia Jusv to get something to eat. To prevent this, there rmist be Immediate stop-gap aid for Europe —food, shelter and fuel to tide them through the winter. But there must be more. There must be a long range aid program *i»t will help Europe get back on Mi feet. This should be Predicated CO Burope helping itself and upon th« establishment of stable government* in the areas helped. Germans today are only waiting ior someone to give them a pro- cnni.ip follow, to point out the dl- Jiaction to them. It could be us- it eould be Russia. The destruction In Germany and elsewhere was much greater than we ever had Imagined anrt there 1ms been practically no rebuilding. Any EDITOR'S NOTE: Twenty-two Iowa farmers who paid their own expenses amounting to $1600 ench have Just returned from the first real Brass-root .survey of Europe's needs, Here ts the report of LcRoy Gelling of Sanborn, la., a member of the Iowa Farm Bureau Board of Directors nnd a fanner with 9«0 acres in livestock and feed. long range program must Include the rebuilding of at least part of the Ruhr to provide such things as farm tools and the revitalizing of coal production. Occupation authorities are going as much as they can nbout (he coal production. But capital Is needed to rebuild the industries and no one today seems Interested In providing capital while trie threat of war hangs over Europe. Unstable currency also retards investment In Europe. People have no confidence In their own money and are not likely to invest when any earnings may be wiped out by growing inflation. And many people have little or no confidence in their government's power to protect Investments. The food-crisis may last at least two years. Lack of tools and equipment on farms, lack of fertilizer and bad weather could prolong it. But If industry gets going again to produce the tools and fertilizer, the iltuatlon can be *a3«d. "• There tm been much talk about manpower shortages in Europe but we saw many men idle. There seems to be some pathological attitude toward work. The victors feel they should be better off for having won the war. The losers don't seem to care. We saw many, mainly refugees, content to get what little food they can without work and hope for a better future. For most, that means a hope of getting out of Europe forever. The population in the U.S. zonr; of Germany has Increased 35 per cent since April IMS, while the production during the same period has dropped 25 per cent. We understand that only 12 mines In the Ruhr valley are back to 19383» production levels, yet miners are among the very few people who are getting anywhere near enough to eat. Until the Ruhr gets to producing coal again, America will have to send coal as well as food to help out, not to save Europe but in our own Interest. tn te tlon they need about themselves to make a wise choice of their life work, according to a Detroit expert ,,5i'i ha j d , D«*her. administrative Mslstant In the guidance and place£,.

Again that ominous, whirring sound came, and Hnppy, following the direction ot George's eyes, caught her breath in a soundless gasp. JjVDR Timmy was poised as though carved from stone, his amber eyes lixed on B clump of palmettos just out of Hnppy's range of vision. Soundlessly, George moved a step and Happy followed him—and a sick horror bubbled in her throat. For lifted just above the thick underbrush that stood not more thnn two or three Jnches high, she saw the flat, ugly head, the flickering tongue of a rattlesnake! The hair at the back of her neck crawled. "Be quiet!" George whispered. •Let Titnmy alon«. He car, handle the situation.** "Oh, DO Geo»»e—r»! He'll be jHedr Happy tried to move but George's arms e»«ght her and held her close. The eat and the snake were oblivious to them. Th« whirring noise now had a queer «o»nd of desperation, but Timmy did not » much as flicker a whisker. He was rigid, poised, waiting— Suddenly the snake swayed and Timmy, a flash of golden fur, struck with lightning-like speed. Happy gave a deep groan and hid her ace against George's shoulder K I blackness swept over her. ... i When she came to, she was back ' » the wicker chair, and George was kneeling beside her, forcing araody between her clenched **eth, and looking—her clearing senses told her with a feeling of shock—a Kttte annoyed, armosl disgusted.

Q.EORGZ stood up at last and looked down at her, his hands in his pockets, a little frown on his brow. "Hnppy, aren't you being pretty rilly about this?" he said curtly. "Timmy'j only a cat, after all." . Happy flung up her head, h«r eyes blazing. "Oh, of course, he's only a cat to you! But to me, he's—he's my family; the only thing I've got to love and that gives me love in return," she flashed. "That's not quite true, Happy. Oh, perhaps it was true once," George added swiftly. "But not since you came to Sundown. Yew know perfectly well that 1 love you; I think if yoii'd-let yourself, you eould love me. I'm asking you to marry me, Happy." Happy looked out over the lovely scene, and for the second time felt something dark and evil and mysterious stirring ever sc faintly beneath the surface of beauty "No, thanks," she said, far more curtly than she had meant to speak. And realized, to- late, how rude and ungracious she had been. She flushed rrriserabry. 'T m sorry." George stood straight and tafl, hn eyes cold. "Why should yc« be sorry? Jfi my privilege to aak you, yours to refuse; so what occasion is there for regret?" His voice was as curt as hers had been. "Perhaps; though, thic wac scarce^ the time or the place for me to present my question." His manner ibftened. 'I am very much in earnest, Hap- W. I want to marry you. I b« lieve that I can make you happy; I'd try very hard.
