The ones on top were V-mail microfilm -single sheets which he had sent from various overseas «ta- lions. KIrsten scooped^out the letters. All of them, and carried them into the living room. Carl lollowed her just in lime to see her dump the lol into the fireplace."Kirsten!" Carl protested from the depths ot a wounded-heart. "Don't you want to keep any of them?" She hesitated, almost as it (he had heard him, and bent over aa if to take them back, but straightened up again resolutely with a gesture that put them and their writer out of her Ule forever. Her back was toward him so he did not see the expression on his wlfe'i face-as she fumbled for the box ot matches which la; on the mantel. When she found it; she stooped down once more and lit the papers. She remembered one'more thing and went to get it-.

HE enclosed picture was of a stocky, self-cornciouslj handsome young man in sport clothe*, nice hair, close set eyes and a mouth with a mannequin smile oa it He was a determined looking character and if his photograph did not lie he would orobably never suffer from blindness to his own interests. Perhaps Carl was prejudiced. Certainly he was blinded by the fury which shook him. It there is any more nauseating poison than to gaze upon the face ot a man who has usurped your place with the woman you love, hell has not yet released it for humanity to taste. , Carl's fury climbed over the bulwarks of his inherent phlegm. He wanted to be face to face with th« original of that photograph. Because his emotions translated themselT** into action more rapidly than If he had been dependent on men physical means ot "preasion-he was outside of the house and on his .ay while Kirst*n was still standing before the fireplace, with the tetter and the photograph in her hand.

She turned on aU the burners, oven, broiler and everything.

The men were gathered SB a ragged group around a focus of activity which seemed " to be on the sand. . "What goes on?" Carl asked m he edged his way in. "It's that girl," explained Jake Snyder. "She almost got drowned. Then this big guy, come along and he's undrownding her." Carl was near enough now !• observe the workings of the resuscitation treatment. He was interested but not particularly until the man happened to turn his head to look over his shoulder as he spoke to Duke. Then Carl knew instantly why be, was there. The man was Max! The only person in all the world, even in Tokyo, whom Carl really hated. • . • Carl started toward Max. "Stand up, you! My name's Peterson knd you can gues« what I'm going to do to you." Carl had counted without Eddie. Eddie blocked him oft. Eddie was a gopd.blocker,:a lot of man and muscle. "Let him alone.? "But, Eddie," argued CarL "thai is the louse who—" "Never mind who be Is. Right now-let him be. You heard me?" Maybe Cari heard him but he certainly paid no attention. The moment Eddie's grip relaxed Carl lunged forward. Eddie had to shove him out ot the way this time. A good hard shove. Ft put Carl back on hi! rumble-seat there in the sand, with a resounding thump. > (T* Be Ce«Un«4) f r*"*- ton- i««» n MA tiirntf. IMC. T. M. no. u. «.
