Walker, who for years preserved the beautiful grove now cm- bracwl in the municipal park which bears his name, i.s making a further contribution to the nark. To round out the project the fair association has been acquiring, through the taking of tax titles and otherwise, some seven acres of land just ciist of the original park tract. To assist . in carrying through this program Mr. Walker has been giving the owners of some of this land, which is divided into lots, home sites on land owned by him nearby. As a result before : long the limits of the park will lie materially extended. Mr. Walker is not one to seek pub- lie notice or thanks for the contributions lie has made. Nevertheless, as the entire community is the beneficiary, il ia Jilting that they be acknowledged. The Family THURSDAY, OCTOHI3R 8, 1930 •New Nippon Goal The story of modern Japan is tlic story of a people striving with all their might to win world 'recognition for the yellow race. And they have made appreciable strides toward thai goal. In the mailer of war, for instance, Nippon's sons have shown their while brothers a:few things about the lech- nic of .expansion by aggression. That takes bluff, 'backed 'byUforce. ' ' "..-•., Tn the pence-lime, pursuit''of trade,'' Japan has repeatedly stolen the 'march on other nations, winning Ihoi'r markets from them with lower prices. ThiH reiiuircs shrewdness, and Ihe willingness of Japanese ; ; subjects to work for nominal \vage.s. Now a small group of Japanese have set out Urdo what the while man lias never achieved—climb Mount Everest, king of the Himalayas. Thai ' calls for heart, and real courage, and men who have iricd il are entombed in ice on Us,slopes. If Iho Japanese succeed in Ihis endeavor, llic race may gain more respect from its Occidental competitors than il has in any other way. Slimmer of 1936 JJronglit Increase In I lea | Strokes i:Y JIK. MOKUIS FISIIRKIN Hdllor, .liiunul of the American iMdIUal Association, and of ll)Kfi.i, llic Health Magazine The summer of 1936 was one nf Ilin hottest, on record. In the United Stoics, the number of caws of heat stroke was gicntcr tluui the ^average.

Gradually he develops a fever; his pulse becomes rapid and his skin dry, hoi and flushed. The pupils of his eye's are usually contracted or small. Associated with these symptoms Is rapid and noLsy breathing. In many cnscs of hcnt stroke, ihc pupils of Ihc victim's eyes widen or dilate Just before death. * • * As I have already said In previous columns In this series, the iincoiliclousncss of heat nlroke is occasionally confused with that •resulting from drugs, bleeding diabetes, changes In li!oc<l circulation, or epilepsy. To avoid hrat stroke, keep ocol as possible. In exceedingly lic.l weather, wear light clothing. loose and porous. While working In nn especially hot atmosphere. make certain that clothing is llBlil, so that unnecessary heat Is not retained in the body. Taking coo! baths at frequent Intervals, or even vtishlng the face nnd linrnls with cool water, will cool the body. Adequate slcq; helps fortify the body for the unusual • strain associated with. heat. People In n hot atmosphere will chink plenty of water because of the excessive evaporation of;walcr from the surface of the body.

HI? blue eyes would twinkle and his leathery, tunned cheeks would crease In pleasant wrinkles as he called greetings to friends along the street. ) " 'Day, Judge!" he'd quaver in his sweetly husky voice, "Mighty good fishin' weather welc bavin'!" . . . "Howdy there, Jim Scott! How's your sick bird dog?" lie drove slowly and listened attentively tp the answers. t To ladies he was always cspe- < elally' courteous, their/ages mattering not at all. Though he ap- ' predated the fresli loveliness of , the younger set, he was just as gallant in. greeting Miss Cassie Drew, whose beauty had withered 40 years ago in the little notion shop where she spent her days. Every woman, young or old, somehow felt herself to be prettier more charming and interesting after Major Meed had bowed to her nnd Inquired solicitously aboul her health. . But when, as today, he drove Ihe five miles to town seated in the old phaeton behind his smal bay horse, he gi-eclcd no one. He was sad and downcast, thinking of his failures. He was about to get (irunk. Kalhcrine Meed, the Major's 21- year-old granddaughter, was also In lown loday.

People \\-ho travel In the siun- r<OMING out o£ llic storc/Katli- erine stood on Ihc sidewalk, looking up at the threatening sky, holding out an experimental hand to feel for raindrops. Her brown suit was two years old but she wore it superbly, her lithe, well- built body giving it flair and distinction. A green felt hat, smart in ils ageless way, was pulled oi'cr i her Imir. From beneath it her bronze-brown curls escaped,'giving an effect of carelessness and childish disorder. Her bronze eyes matched her hair. "Exactly," someone once said, "as if cut from the same piece of silk." The girl's eyebrows were arched but un- plucked. When her wide lips parted in their quick, warm smile you saw that her teeth were brilliantly white, but not enlively even. There was about her something magnetic and natural and boyish. Something eager antl in- Icnse. People called her Kale. ~" "Just a passing shower," she said with a smile to the Hltlc grocery clerk who was carrying out her bags lo her car. "Did my sister remember lo wrile do'.vn cream of toHar, Henry?" "Yes, Miss Kale," he answered. "But Miss Caroline forgol lo say whether she v/anled light brown or dork brown sugar, so I put in a pound of each." "Smart boy," Kale said. "I'm going lo the drug store now. Close the car window when you're through, please." She dashed up Ihe slrcet in the now briskly falling rain, her head ducked to miss Hie stinging drops. She felt someone seize her arms and shake her sharply. Klie had run pell-mell into a handsome, black-haired young man of about 25. While lie pinned her elbows to her sides he laughed down at her. "In a hurry?" .ho asked. "Morgan!" Kate exclaimed, nnd blushed with excitement and happiness. She had been thinking of. him steadily for almost an hour, wondering it she would encounter him somewhere in town. He was, in a way, her fiance. In the parlance of llic small southern town, he had "rushed" her for several years, and one night at a dance last June he had proposed lo her [and she had accepted. liy.jiio, I'm n^t exactly in a hurry,"'shc lolrt- hi(n.^"I could be persuaded to v/astc a little lime, if that's what you mean." ;• "Then come on in here," he urged. f They were slar,'i\ig 'icfore n drug store. Retaining oi:j of her elbows, he piloted her through the door, past the marble counler wilh its clustered imbibers nnd led her lo the farthest lablc hi the rear. Kate said, a litllc breathless, "You act as if I iniglit boll ;mr run. That's part of your fata! charm, Morgan—treating women like c a p i u v c d trophies." She thought, "I banter him as if . bad to. Why can't I just remember we're engaged and vela::?'? v s 4 ATORGAN PBENTISS smiled "What do you want lo drink honey?" She lold him :i limeade, and be instructed the waiter to "make i two." She thought, "He's going to ask to come out tonight. I'll ask him for dinner. I'll Inirry iic-mt. and make a cake." It was Friday and they almost always dated Fri- day night. It was an old custom, "I guess they were in stitches begun when she was a day pupil it the boarding school in town.

She had the dismaying Reeling that a whole week-end had .opplcd aboul her ears, raising bumps. "Why—why yes, Morgan," she answered. "I'm not doing anything at all Monday night." She thought, "Maybe he's going out of town on business." But his next words corrected that. "The Elwells have a visitor," he iaid, still not looking at her. ''Eve's asked me for dinner tonight. There's something else planned for Saturday and Sunday —I'm. not sure 'what, but Eve asked ; me to keep both nights open'."-" »'-• •>•••' ;.'..., "Oh," Kate sai-,'.

She knew 'they were engaged, even though it had never been announced. Kate wore Morgan's fraternity pin hi lien o( a ring, and she'd given up all her other beaus for him. This, to a southern girt reared in southern traditions, was the public mark of surrender. With an effort, Kale smiled al Morgan. "Well," she said, "when the college girls come home for vacalioti it livens up Ihe old town considerably. This girl goes lo Sweet Briar with Eve, doesn'l she?" JVTORGAN nortdcu. "Name's Dar- i ^ bara Lodge. From St. Paul Quite a looker. She and Eve got in just about an hour ago.

"Eve always acts as t Shelby convulses her when she's howing it to a visitor." "Well," said Morgan defensively, "Eve's been around, you mow. The new postoflice couldn't )ossibly look as big to her as it does to llic rest of us." Kate finished her drink and ookcd at her watch. She had no iced for hurry but she suddenly longed to be dashing oil lo some important appointment, leaving Morgan impressed and curious, rlowcver, she could think ot nolh- ng interesting to call her av.'.ny. Mo civic enterprise needed her. \'o young men were pining for a sight of her. She had, a year ago it least, let them know that she was interested only in Morgan ?rcntiss. She had burned her nidges. Morgan, strange to s:iy, seemed not quile to have burned is. ; "Well," she said, rising, hating lhe prosaic excuse, "I musl go jack and finish my shopping." "How's Caroline?" he asked, ivalking to the cloor beside her. His polite, impersonal lone made icr lliink suddenly, "He doesn't care a darn how Caroline is.

"As if 1 could use my time any belter lhaii being with you!" His eyes caressed her in the old way, and her heart lifted again. She thought, "He's just the same, of course. 1 mustn't be possessive. He's got to be agreeable to Eve on account of their fathers." "Don't forget Monday night," he reminded her. "Oil no, i won'l!" she replied eagerly. Too eagerly? She wondered lalcr as she started the car for home. Over in lhe public square she saw a familiar old bay horse hitched to a familiar phaeton. "Grnn'dad's in town," she murmured in faint surprise.
