Suddenly the long'- nbnent Mr. Tolllrer come* home. * * * XVI £ I FOR one had almost forgotten that there was a Mr. Tolliver, although I remembered vaguely thnt Flora had once told me he was a traveling man and was seldom able to come home. He was a little man, hardly more than five feet four or five, with a leonine head and a great moss of long, wavy white hair, which he wore brushed back from a beautifully modeled forehead. Except for his mouth he was the handsomest man 1 had ever seen; his mouth was flabby and loose. I had thought of Mr. Tolliver, if I thought of him at all, as a sort of tramp, seedy nnd shabby and ifnwashed. But he was immaculate—indeed almost a dandy. When word was finally flashed around the town by telephone that Mr. Tolliver had asked formally by letter for an interview with Mr. Forbes, Otsego was like a chicken with its head cut oft. There are several accounts of that Historic interview — Sam's, Nelson's, Father's. The one most relished is Weyman's. Cousin Sam was waiting for Mr. Tolliver in his library. He had had Weyman set out the whisky and open a fresh box of Corona r-'gars. As Weyman showed Mr. Tolliver in, he came forward with cordial outstretched hand. Mr. Tolliver bowed. He ignored the proffered hand. He refused to surrender his stick. He refused to sit down. When Cousin Sam offered him a drink, Mr. Tolliver said insultingly: "I thank you, sir, but I am pSrtie'Jar about those with whom I drink." Weyman insisted that poor Mr. Sam's jaw dropped a full six inches and that he looked for all the world like he had been spit in the eye. * * * 44 AT great cost to iny personal feelings I have come to ask you, nay, to tell you, to keep away from my daughter," continued Brother Tolliver. "When I have your promise, when you have satisfied me thnt you mean to keep that promise, I shall go. And I give you my sacred word of honor that thereafter neither I nor any member of my family shall ever darken your doors again." Sam's eyes fairly bugged out, and he was so hopping mad and so astounded that he. kept swallowing like he was choking. "Which daughter?" he finally got out. Mr. Tolliver was slightly taken aback. "No subterfuges, young man," he snapped, very sour-like. ''You know very well which' daughter." "I suppose you mean Flora," Sam said. "But why? What have I done to Flora?" This was plainly the opening Mr. Tolliver was waiting for. Weyman said he jumped to it. "You dare to ask me that?" Mr. Tolliver thundered. "You who have taken the name of a white flower of a girl, a girl who trusted you and honored you above all others . . . you who have trampled her good name into the mud . ./. you who have made that name'a byword and a hissing . . ." Mr. Tolliver flung back his head and roared that Sam was never, never, never to see his daughter again nor under any conceivable circumstances to address a single word to her. He, her father, her natural protector, was forced to go away in the morning. But he had his ways of finding out what was going on. If Mr. Samuel 'ForEes so much as flung a glaffce in his daughter's direction, Mr. Tolliver would return, yes, even from the far corners of the earth, and so help him, he would horsewhip Mr. Forbes within an inch of his life. Cousin Sam says he was never so mad in his life. He said: "Why you snotty little popinjay! Get out of my house, and stay out." Mr. Tolliver invited Sam to put v him out. When Sam hesitated,; Mr. Tolliver roared that he was going, but of his own free will and at his own pleasure. He repeated his threat of horsewhipping Sam if he ever again spoke to Florabelle. Then he stalked out the door. * * * OR a minute Sam just stood there. Suddenly the whole episode appeared incredibly funny. Me laughed and laughed. He took a drink, another drink. When Weyman, Who had been listening from the next room, sidled in to ask if he should lock up the house, he gave him a drink, too. After Weyman had gone, Sam wound the grandfather clock. He started to close the windows and turn off the lights. Quite close to him he heard a little tap at one of the French, windows that opened on the garden. He guessed at once who it was who tapped on his window at 11 o'clock at night. "Go away, little white flower, little innocent dove," he said lightly. "It's far too late for you. to come in. Run on home and go to bed." "Please, Sam, just for a minute, a tiny, tiny minute." "No." "But I have to see you. It's terribly important. Please, dear Sam. I give you my word of honor [ won't stay but five minutes— three. Please, please, pretty please." 'it was a warm night, and the late phlox was in bloom. Its fragrance drifted to Sam in waves carried by a little errant breeze.' There was no moon, but the stars were beckoning candles. The whisky ran hot in Sam's veins. . Half willingly, half reluctantly, he slipped the catch on the screen. (To Be Continued) By ITAt BOYLE KANSAS CITY. Mo.—(.<P)—The man who has written some of the best books of our time never deliberately wrote a book in his life. And he proved something—that a man doesn't have to haul off in ivoty tower to create literature He can do it under the day to day stress of turning out a daily piece for the newspapers, newspapers Which tomorrow a housewife may use to line a pantry shelf. 1 mean Ernie Pyle. As his fame as war reporter rose in the early days of the African war, Ernie was subjected to many profitable offers from publishers who wanted him to write a book. His answer was always the same: "11 takes everything I've got to go on doing what I am." What he was doing was simply writing the greatest study of soldier life in war time in history. Eventually this became apparent, and this daily material was gathered nto a series of books that will stand as the classic eye witness account of the second war. These books, made the little man with the half-pint body and the giant heart ft national hero, be- ause he somehow symbolized the American fear and hatred, of war and yet also the American charac- to go on and finish the task. The books also made him famous, embarrassed and rich—wealth he icver cared for nor lived to spend. But before Emio became the ipokesman of the American soldier at war he was the quiet chronicler of America at peace. For five years before the war he raveled about the states, writing ^bout the oddities and virtues of the jountry and people he loved, build- ng an ever widening loyal audience. Tliis material has been collected nto a now book—"Home Country" —and it holds the heart of the real Ernie Pyle, a hap~py traveler look- ng forward each morning to a new adventure. It Is Ernie before war and personal sorrow had taken the iest from him. "I hope some day you people will ublish the book of mine that I like )est myself," he once told a pub- ishing firm. "That's the book with il Ithe stuff I wrote before the war, he book, about my own country, about home." For Sale 1941 Chevrolet Truck High Torque Motor Two Speed Rear Axle McWilliams Motor Co.

Texas Today BY JACK RUTLEGE Associated Press Staff The Pulitzer awards in journalism are all right, as far as they go. But where arc the Texnns among the winners? Apparently the Pulitzer judges just didn't have time to check up on the good writing i\ncl reporting in Texas. So the boss suggests our own "Texas Today Awards" for top-reporters right hove in Texas. Here goes: The first Today Award goes to David Rasco of the. Amarillo News for his feature about 84-year-old George M Black, of Groom. It's one of the best sketches we have seen recently in Texas newspapers. Mr. Black, says Rasco, has lived in the Panhandle longer than any person alive. He doesn't consider folks who have lived there n mere 50 or GO years pioneers. To him they :ire just "kids and greenhorns." Black looks so much like a Texan that he is a walking personification of John Knott's famous cartoon character of Mr. Texas. He is lean, heis piercing, penetrating eyes under shaggy eyebrows, wears a Stetson and won't let a barber touch his handlebar mustache which runs with free abandon over his lips. But he was born in London, England. He came to the Panhandle in 1874 and knew Old Mobettie when it was a rip-roaring frontier town peopled by gamblers and wild women. Indians were the area's major headache. It was a hunter's paradise. "The buffaloes going to water looked like a cyclone," he says. "There were literally thousands* of wild turkeys, deer and antelope." He knew most of the old characters, and although ne didn't go to school, he received a liberal education by sitting in courts listen- inp; to lawyers argue. One of his favorites was Temple Houston, son of Sam Houston, He says his foster father built one of the first homes in the Panhandle, near Graham Creek. "We were the first children there." He was madt; deputy sheriff of Wheeler County when he was still in his teens. He. remembers when Wheeler County was formed in 1870 -•and it was the first county organized in the high plains of Texas. He has lived at Groom now for 31 years—"Just a little while." . "Do you think there's a future in this country?" lie was asked. "Future?" he drawled. "The future is already here. When I was a ycung man, anyone who would have said this country would be like this, would have oeen called crazy." Maritime (Continued From Pnee 1) and stewards and the ACA. A West Coast CIO Maritime Commitete spokesman, however, said that "similar to the East Coast pattern as announced, the West Coast unions which are locked out will have their members remain on the jobs." Pledges of mutual support by five CIO Maritime unions indicated that a solid front of 200,000 CIO Maritime workers would bo involved in the stoppage. The unions and their claimed memberships are the tfMU, 90,000; American Communiscations As- sociation, 3,000; International Longshoremen's and Warehousemen's union, 80,000; Marine Engineers Beneficial Association, 15,000; Marine cooks and stewards, 12,000. The stoppage hinged on demands by the NMU and the ACA for wage boosts of 20 and 15 percent respectively, plus other contract improve- cents, and extension of the expired contract by the Marine cooks. The MEBA and Longshoremen on the West. Coast have agreed on contract extensions, promised to follow the lead of the others in the event of a "lockout."

Leaves from Correspondent's Life Note Book Tax Veto Man h Being Held In Conneciion Wiih Fin Police today were holding one man in connection ,wlth a fire in 9. a. Gray St.. home Sunday afternoon. The fire broke out in the'one (Story frame home in The Flat? about 1 p.m. and caused an undetermined amount of damage to mattresses and cither household articles. Firemen extinguished the blaze before it could do more serious damage. Walls and ceiling of the house were charred by the flames. Witnesses at the scene naid they saw a man break into the house and come out a few minutes later. Shortly afterward, the alarm was turned in and the man in question pointed out to Fire Chief Ben White. White took the man into city jail where he was held for questioning. A conference between Chief White and District Attorney Tom Braly was held this morning and further investigations were launch- d by the Chief and City Policemen J. B. Pritchett and J. R. Manning, the latter being called to the scene of the fire yesterday. The district attorney said this morning that no definite information has been gleaned by the officers so far, as they have run into conflicting stories. No specific charges have been made yet.

(Continued From Pne« 1) ports to the economy should a sub- equent deflationary period develop." But beyond this general argu- nent against any tax cut now, Mr. Truman specifically criticized the measure Congress sent him. He said it reduces taxes "in the high income brackets to a grossly disproportionate extent" and' declared a good bill "would give a greater woportion of relief to the low income group." . At the same time, he recommended that Congress study and plan for a "thorough going revision of the system," consider not only individual income tax rates, but ad- ustments in the level of personal exemptions and changes in excise ,ax laws, gift and estate taxes, corporation taxes and "the antire "ield of tax revenues." "H. R. 1 (the tax reduction bill) 'ails to give relief where it is needed most," his message asserted. 'Under H. R. 1, tax savings to the average family with an income of ;2500 would be less than $30,- while .axes on an income of $5,000 would be reduced by nearly $5,000 and on an income of $500,000 by nearly ;GO,000. "Insofar as 'take home' pay is concerned under H. R. 1, the fani- ly earning $2,500 would receive an ncrease of only 1.2 percent; the aniily with an income of $50,000 ivolld receive an increase of, 18,6 percent; and tlie family with an in- ome of $500,000 would receive an increase of 62.3 percent."

A vastly important aspect of the economic program is that it calls for .coordinated international effort. The Sovietizing of Hungary, Romania and Bulgaria were spots of rash, each of which gave fair warn- ng of the real disease. President Truman took note of this last weekend when he denounced the governments of these countries as oppressors of their people. This was in connection with his signing of the peace treaties with them, along with that for Italy with its. noncommunist government. So far as Hungary is concerned, barring a successful revolt by tuiti- ccirrununists its would seem to be lost to western democracy. Moreover, there is no doubt that only continued occupation of Austria and Germany "by western troops will prevent communication of those important countries. However Italy and Western Europe remain to bs saved. The two key countries of this area are, of course, France and Italy. The powerful Communist parties in both these countries are making a fierce onslaught on the governments in an effort to duplicate the Hungarian coup. This is a vital nnd an anxious md- inent as we nwnit the outcome of General Marshall's proposal. British Foreign Secretary Bevin is ischcdulled to proceed 'to Paris tomorrow to discuss the offer with Frunch Foreign Minister Bidault, So the wheels hnve started to turn in Western Europe.
