Chapter XXII What fearful order Ciznlk had issued to the Oriental, she could only guess—and she was never really to know. For at that moment there was a terrific detonation out over the water. The Chinese stopped in his tracks, turned questioningly to Johnny Clznik. The letter's face had drained of its color. "Ling!" he roared. "Get above!" Standing there, Martha felt the swing of the ship as it altered its course. Bells tinkled somewhere below, and slowly the throb of the engines increased, vibrating the floor plates beneath her feet. She stood there for a moment too frightened to move—too frightened even to realize that in their hurried exit, Clznik and Ling had left the cabin door swinging wide. As the ship turned, the door swung heavily, clanged against the wall. It was then that Martha regained her senses, and rushed to the open doorway. The passage was empty, but above her she could hear men shouting against the wind. Expecting every moment to run headlong into an adversary, Martha walked hurriedly along. Desperately she hoped to gain the deck above, perhaps hide herself during the confusion. Then, as she passed one of the doors which stretched along the passageway, she heard her name called clearly. And it was Betty's voice! Martha stopped as one stunned. Almost afraid to answer, she answered softly. "Yes . . . it's Martha." "You can turn the latch from the outside," Betty said. In one sudden- movement Martha was Inside the stateroom; and so great was her Joy at finding Betty that she almost let the door swing tight again. "Wait!" Betty said, clutching the knob. She turned the lock so that the door would not close flush with the wall. "If you'd been in here as long as I have you would not miss a chance like this, sister!" Martha wanted to cry for joy at the familiar, Jocular tone. But when Betty turned to her she saw in the blond girl's eyes the unmistakable effects of days of fear and weariness. For a long moment they held to each other there in the dimly lighted little cabin, saying nothing. "When the ruckus started, I listened at the door—and heard you walking down the hall," Betty said "I'd know that walk anywhere in the world." "Tell me," Martha pleaded. "Are you — all right?" Betty nodded. "Sure, I'm all right. Handsome Mr. Ciznlk has been a little unpleasant once or twice, but I've managed him so far. Have you met Mr. Ciznik, by any chance?" Martha, flushed angrily. "Just now." She took Betty's arm. "Come on, let's get out of here." "Easy, Mart. There's hot a chance. 1 tried it once—but this boat seems to have a knack of getting away from the revenue cutters." "Is that what all the excitement is?" Betty nodded. "You heard a revenue cutter firing a warning to stop. After a—" She stopped suddenly as the stateroom plunged Into darkness. "There go the lights! Ciznlk will run without lights, and keep away from their searchlight beam if he can." "How—how long have you been on the boat?" "Maybe a week. It seems more like a year—and it may be longer than a week for all I know. They don't want to let go of me, and they don't quite know what to do with me." "But how did you get up into the Northwest? They told me at the California border that Speddon had driven through alone." Betty smiled ruefully. "Oh, no; Little Orphan Annie was lying in the closed rumble seat-and Mr. Sped- don's gun was pointed down between the cushions of the front seat with one hand while he handed the dumb officer his license with the other. It seems like we drove 100 miles before he let me back Into the front!" "What made him take you in the first place?" "It was because of a crazy remark I made. You remember we went back to the service station to ask the attendant if he'd seen Neal? Well, Just to make conversation I said I wasn't surprised to have Neal disappear, because the whole Job looked suspicious and I wouldn't be surprised if we were working for rumrunners or dope smugglers. Out of a million inane remarks—and I can make 'em all— I had to say that! Speddon wouldn't believe I was joking. He told me I knew too much and that in three days I'd be talking to Clznik. He tore out of town like mad—and never stopped except for gas and oil and sandwiches." "You didn't send me any telegrams then?" "No. That was Speddon. I think he'd have gone back after you, but he was afraid. So he thought if he could keep you happy until you got SENSATIONAL OF ALL SPRING COATS AND SUITS INCLUDING ROTHMOORS..

"1 don't suppose you could read much of it. I just had half a minute to scrawl it out and slip it to a gas station attendant. 1 was trying to warn you about Ciznlk and Sped* don. But . . . . " Betty's voice grew suspiciously husky in the darkness, "but I don't suppose anything could have kept you from walking into this anyhow." "I've found you safe, that's all that matters." "Safe . . ." Betty repeated the word queerly. "Have you any idea what will happen to us if that government boat should overtake this one?" "But they'll be too busy to think about us." "I wish I could believe it," Betty answered. "But when Ciznlk recalls what we could tell the police I'm afraid he'll remember, all right." They fell silent at the sudden sound of heavy footfalls in the passageway. They grew nearer, went on down past the door. , "That's Ciznlk!" Betty whispered. "Betty I He's gone back to his stateroom to find me! We've got to make a break for it. Maybe if we can get up on deck we'll have a chance." They plunged out into the dark corridor, feeling their way along the wall. At the far end they heard Clz- nik's swift curses as he realized that Ling had left the door open for Martha's escape. "Hurry!" Betty breathed desperately. "He'll turn a flashlight down the hall." Martha ran on, collided painfully with the rail of an Iron stair. Clutching Betty's wrist, she started up. When they reached the deck they realized the reason for Ciznik's sudden concern for them. (To Be Continued) Adobe Walls Scouts PAN AMERICAN EXPOSITION TO OPEN AT DALLAS ON JUNE 12 DALLAS, April 17.—With the opening of -the Greater Texas and Pan American Exposition here on June 12 for a run of 20 weeks ,the southwest becomes the playground of the Americas. Revolving around the Pan American Casino, a huge air-conditioned theater where the stars of stage, screen and radio will be presented with an international revue eclipsing any other venture in the history of the American theater, the entertainment plan of the exposition, under the direction of George Marshall, Washington empresario, provides amusement of every type to suit the individual whims and fancies of each visitor, Rudy Vallee, Ted Fio-Rito, Phil Harris, and Veloz and Yolanda, America's foremost dance team, have COURT RECORD TROOP 18 That Boy Scout troop 18, Hopkins, will be reorganized and should be one of the best troops in the Adobe Walls area was the opinion of Scout Executive Fred Roberts, following a meeting with a dozen men of that community, two of them former Eagle Scouts, at the Scout hut at Hopkins Friday night. Interest shown by the men attending the meeting, and by Boy Scouts who, when the troop was active a year ago, traveled distances as much as 10 miles to attend troop meetings, was gratifying to Scout Executive Roberts, who has been asked ot meet again this week with the Hopkins group to consider the troop's re-organization. Troop re-organization is expected to be one of the topics on the program of the regular monthly meeting of area board. The board will meet at.7:30 p. m. Tuesday in the city commissioners room. Troop 80 will be in charge of the program of the Court of Honor to be held Monday night, April 26, in the high school auditorium. Four Scouts, all members of troop 80, will be advanced ot Eagle Scout rank. They are Doyle Aulds, Keaton Rhoades, Aubrey Green, and Roy Voyles. In preparation for the Court, boards of review must complete their work by Monday night, and cards must be submitted Tuesday. TROOP 21 Troop 21 had their regular meeting Thursday night, April 15, opened by bringing in the troop colors and saluting. Gilbert Morris was given his tenderfoot badge, Raymond Holllngs- head and Billy R. Price went before the board of review for second class rank. Members present were as follows: Alvin Blankenburg, John Blankenburg, Bill Cunningham, Lawrence Flaherty, Raymond Hollingshead, John C. Karlin, Gilbert Morris, Russell Pickering, Billy R. Price, Alvin Reeves, Jack Sargent, R. T. Seeds, Bill Taylor, Scoutmaster T. G. Sturgeon, Assistant Scoutmaster Paul F. Blankenburg. Three troop committeemen were present, Mr. Parker, Mr. McClelland, John I. Bradley. The boys got a pair of official Boy Scout pants from Murfee's to rip and made a success of ripping them. R. T. Seeds, Russel Pickering, Alvin Reeves, John Blankenburg, Gilbert Morris and Jack Sargent, pants- ripper-uppers, will receive pants to fit them. The troop colors were retired by saluting, and the meeting closed. Visitors present were Jack Green, Slim Brandenburg, both of troop 19, Le- Fors.

In the Symphony Shell, an open air theater seating more than 4,000 persons, light and comic operas, concerts and a symphony season will be presented from time to time. The Villa Panarnerlca, or Pan American Village, by day will afford the visitor a chance to go abroad at home where he can see the colorful events that go Into dally life below the Rio Grande. By night in the bull ring gay fiestas, featuring celebrated entertainers from the capitals of the nations to the south, will vie strongly for entertainment seekers. On the largest stage in the world a panorama drama presenting more than five centuries of conquest and advancement in the New World, "The Cavalcade of the Americas" will pass in review. Employing more than 300 actors, this spectacle will be one of the outstanding events of the exposition. An idea of the scale of the production can be gained by visualizing a stage large enough to accommodate a volcano and an entire Aztec city. In addition to these outstanding amusement centers, the innumerable shows and attractions on the half-mile long midway make the Pan American exposition one of the greatest centers of entertainment this summer not only in the southwest but in the entire country. ADMIRALS TO NAVIGATE ON HORSEBACK. LONDON (/P)—Admirals on horseback will be seen in King George VTs coronation procession. This anomaly has roused criticism in the royal navy on the grounds that mounted admirals will look ridiculous. The Sea Lords of the Admiralty never have participated in coronations and only are doing so on tills occasion because members of the air council have arranged to. Defenders of the sea lords say there is no break with tradition in admirals riding horseback. They point out that the king's naval aides habitually ride when they accompany his majesty at functions of state. Successful seeding of perennial pasture grasses requires the preparation of a fine, firm seedbed. II An Event of Importance to Every Person in Northeastern Panhandle!
