CALDWfeLI/ BOGART, Ga. <fp) —From her farm near here, Miss Jeftrinette Rankin plans vigorous use of the precinct nfethtod followed Iri the women's suffrage campaigft to spread her Ideas, for peace in the sixth Georgia congressional district. The district is represented by Chairman Carl Vlnson of the house naval affairs Committee. Despite criticism from the Atlanta post of the Amerlc'a'ri Legion, she says she plans to continue her lectures a't Brenau college, Gainesville, Ga.. in the interest of peace. The college recently announced the proposed creation of a chair of peace to be occupied by Miss Rankin. A former member or congress from Montana., Miss Rankin made It clear she dees not intend to enter the race for Representative Vinson's seat in 1936. However, she indicated she and • her associate's would support a candidate against him if he continues to favor big appropriations for nayal building. She said she is an independent in politics and an official resident of Montana, her home being at Missoula in that state. They Sign Cards. Explaining her method of reaching the sixth district voters, Miss Rankin said she is following the plan Which proved so successful in the suffrage campaign. In Montana she and others made speeches to voters in the streets and then got their signatures to cards favoring their caus'e. Miss Rankin first gets a list of the justices of the peace in Georgia of whom there are 2,500. Driving her own automobile, she looks them up. Usually, she says, they are among the leading citizens of their neighborhoods.

After meeting one, she says she asks him if he favors war and invariably, she says, the reply is "No." With that introduction she outlines her plans to prevent war and, if possible, gets his signature to a postcard setting forth this belief, Miss ftankin says that there is more peace sentiment in the south than in other parts of the country and that she and her associates bs- lieve this section and the west offer the best opportunities for spreading their views. A Woman President? Miss Rankin speaks to high schools and colleges whenever the opportunity offers. She tells of the visit the congressman from her district made to a Montana high school where she was enrolled as a pupil. "He devoted most of his talk to the boys and impressed them with their importance in the political world," she said. "He told them that seme day one of them might be president of the United States. The remembering that girls were pupils in the same school, he said to them, 'One day one of you might be the wife of the president of the United States.' "I tell the school girls now that some day one of them may be the president and I tell.the boys that one of them some day may be husband of the chief executive of the United States." An enthusiastic start for the new year was given First Baptist Missionary . union yesterday. A covered dish luncheon In the church cithihg room was followed by a business meeting and pr'o- . gram.

Nicholas Trench and Jerry Mordaunt are aiding Molly in her attempt to recover it; suddenly Molly disappears from her hotel. It was said that she was taken ill, and had to be removed to a hospital.. But Jimmy Fox, page boy whom Nick has befriended, follows and tells Nick that Molly actually has been hidden in a slum. They leave a taxi at the end of the street and start to find Molly. Chapter 29 BATTLE FOR MOLLY Relieved by the knowledge that we had at least secured our retreat, I set off with Jimmy along the empty terrace. It was a depressing thoroughfare, consisting of shabby-looking three- story houses, most of which were doubtless let out in lodgings. None of them had apparently been painted or done up for years, and in inahy cases the stucco was peeling off their fronts. A thin driving rain added to the general air of sordid di sc °mfort. We trudged on in silence until, a little way ahead of us, the roadway began to slope upwards. At the top of the rise it narrowed into what was evidently a bridge — a short stretch of about twenty yards with high iron railings; on either side of it. "Is this the canal? 1 ' I inquired. Jimmy nodded, "That's right, sir. Runs along at the back o'f the 'ouse." He volunteered no further information until we had reached the opposite end, when he' pulled up abruptly under the: light of a street lamp. "You can see for yourself now, sir. That's the place we • Want-4ne second one past fee yard." I stared down into an unMdy.Ut- ter of timber and old barrels.. F«e- yond this I could make out - the black shape of two buildings, each of whiph seemed to posses^ a na»r row strip of ground r&nning down to the canal bank. Both of them ets .ju .cTOpjflfe.,darkness., "Better have a look at the front first," I observed, "If there's noth- ng doing there we can come back The Rev. 3. W.

"Are you game to climb hrough and unlock the back dOor?" "Not 'alf, sir," "Shove this lamp in your pocket ,hen, and get on my shoulder." Steadying him by the knees, I raised myself slowly to my full height. "Legs first," I muttered, and with a quick wiggle I felt him twist himself around. There was a shower of dust and grit, alterlef straining scramble; the weight on my arms .uddenly relaxed, and a muffled >ump from inside told me that he lad landed safely. With the rain trickling down my lock I stood there in the darkness scarcely daring to breathe. Ten— iwenty — thirty seconds passed. ?rom somewhere close by a church clock chimed out the half-hour, and ihen, breaking in on the stroke, came the harsh grate of a key. Al- nost simultaneously the back dOor swung open and Jimmy stepped out into the area. "We're all right, sir," he whispered cheerfully. "There's no one about, leastwise not down 'ere." I took back the torch which he held out to me. "You wait where you are, Jimmy," I said. "I'm going in to search the house. If you hear a row and I don't come down again or give you a shout, clear out quick while you've got the chance. Get hold of the first policeman you can find and tell him that there's a young lady here who has been ki.d- napped and locked up. Do you dn- derstand?" fie nodded silently. Flicking on my lamp I iripye'd past him into the corridor. !(; was a, short, narrow passage with doors on either side of it. At the farther end it opened out into, a kind of stone- and tiptoing 488 contracts under the fanners retired 19.393 acres of wheat land- and received benefit payments of $250,972.2*. According to the reports of the farm supervisors, 18,517 of the retired acres were summer fallowed, 353 acres planted to feed creeps, 7 acrts to food crops. 13 acres to soil improving crops and 318 acres were allowed to lie idle. There were 162 cotton reduction contracts linder which the farmers rented to the government 4265 acres for which they received $25,173.45 in rental money, and $7501.16 in parity payments. There were 260 applications for cotton tnx exemption certificates under the Bankhead act. Tax exemption certificates were issued to more than 300 individual producers and landlords in this program. Gray county producers ivill receive close to $50,000 from the sale of surplus certificates due to the short crop in 1934. Clyde L. Carruth was appointed assistant in cotton adjustment August 1st. after which time he handled most of the cotton work. Corn-hog contracts were signed by 157 producers under which corn was reduced 478 acres, for benefit payments of $2086.50 and the hogs Were reduced by 1725 for which the farmers will receive $25.880 or a total of $27,966.50, Which has been paid Or will be paid to the Gray county fanner. Most of the corn acres were allowed to lie idle. Under the emergency cattle buying program, 6049 cattle were bought for which the producer received a total of $79,399. There were 487 individual vouchers prepared for these cattle. According to the county agent, this program will probably have a greater longtime benefit than any of the adjustment programs. Most of the cattle sold were either low producing- dairy animals or old or poor quality beef animals Producers chilled their herds enabling them to make a larger profi off of fewer animals.

We continued our way down thi farther slope, and in a few steps ar ived at the entrance to Wha* Lane. It was a gloomy cul-de-sai with a blank wall on the left, termi nating, as Jimmy had said, in a •ough piece of waste ground, raila n from the road. Facing this were a couple of gaunt houses, with high steps ..lea'dihg up to their front doors Treading as softly as we could we ncved on past the gate in the yard, and pulled up outside our destination Like" its next door rieighbor the plap'e looked as though it were deserted. Not a ray of light appeared anywhere, and the only sound that the stillness was the. faint ?a'ttering of the rain amongst the Pushes opposite, I peered through the half-open ate which led down into the area. Dark as it was I could see that the kitqhen windows were heavily barred, the stout iron stanchions reaching up to within a few inches of the top arch. On the left, however, just above the dim outline of the dustbin, there was something else. It was a small pane of partly broken glass about two feet square, and at the sight of it a sudden inspiration flashed across my mind. "Come on, Jimmy," I whispered, 'let's go down and do a bit of scouting." Silently as cats we descended the steps, and creeping forward to the side of the dustbin, I pulled out a pocket electric torch which I had brought with me from the flat. The broken .pane was about six feet from the ground. I raised myself on my tpes, so that I could just see over the lower ledge, and inserting my torch through a hole in the glass, pressed down the swtich. ' I was looking into what was dehtly a disused coal cellar. There was nothing in it except a-few dirty Sacks .and the door, which was only half closed, led out into a passage. I hurried off the light and pu§Ked on the wooden framer At the second attempt) il confronted by a flight of wooden stairs. Prom under the door at the top came a faint glimmer of ligrt. For several seconds I stood still listening. There was not a sound to be heard, and taking hold of the rickety banisters I mounted up a step at a time until my fingers closed silently on the door handle. It turned with a faint click. I dropped back the torch into my pocket, and giving a gentle push, stepped out softly into an empty and dimly lit hall. The light, such as it was, came from an old-fashioned gas jet, which had been turned down almost to its lowest point. It gave just sufficient illumination to reveal the fact that there werp four rooms—two on either side of me, and that in the centre another staircase led up to the first land- the committees in congress working together could allocate all this money in time for its expenditure to do any good," he contended. Yesterday's reaction to the budget ranged from the remark of Senator Robinson of Arkansas, democratic leader, that it revealed "a gratifying situation" to a comment 'of Rep.

He was dressed in trousers and a dirty shirt, and his huge tattooed arms were bare to the shoulder. Through the mop of tousled hair which hung down over his forehead he stood glaring and blinking at me like some monstrous ape. "Crove jis allayty." The words, whatever they meant, came out in a hoarse growl, and somehow or other the .sound of the arute's voice steadied me instantly. "You filthy swine!" I said. 'Where's Miss O'Brien?" I took a step towards him, and at the same moment he sprang, at me like a wild beast. One clawing hand gripped me by the shoulder, and I felt . t'he blood spurt beneath my Iciiucfcles as my left fist crashed home full in ln' s f& c e. Back went his head and 1 up came his chin. Swift as a flash', and with the full weight of my body behind it, I slung in my right.

His mouth and chin were covered with blood and I noticed for the, first time that he had silver rings in both ears. There was a shuffle of footsteps in the passage below.
