1946, NlA Sinitt, '.fatee'd her eyes" from the •T^'SjSo! 6ft thg rug and in a stran- vdtte asked, "tTncle Andrew Tils killed himself?" „ Hehdrleks nodded. "There was a letter, t guess I hadn't ought to nave touched it, but it had your haflle on it t Mr. Willson, so I brbught it with me." "Thank you, Hendricks," Mr. Willson said. His voice was taut, "partly f knew with gratitude for Hendricks' loyalty. He read it while we all waited. Then he said to Fletch, "We'll have to get down there right away, and we'll have to call Jeffrey Hazlett ^again." 1 knew how much of an ordeal it was for him by the way he said "again." He came over and put his arm around my Miss Jenny and squeezed her shoulders gently. "It's pretty bad, Jenny." She patted his hand where it tested on her shoulder, and said, "It's all right, darling. Don't worry about me." He handed her the letter. It was indeed pretty bad. It was a long letter, the gist of it .was that 1 Andrew Stites had been paying Phillipa for—of all things—not I suing for a divorce from Fletch. I " The queer, bitter remarks he had made from time to time Sounded in my ears. "Women amuse me," he had isaid, and when Mr. Willson had [remarked that that was one i amusement on which he wouldn't [have to pay tax, he had answered ': shortly, "I \yonder." ' " Then there was that remark on the terrace the night that Phillipa had died, "Remember, will you, I Nana, that what I have done, I 'have done for Jenny," and his re•marks about saving Jenny heartache but it's being the wrong way. ! Then that morning he had said that the twins were "money in the bank for Phillipa." ttfi had been paying Phillipa Since shortly after the birth of the twins—he was the "uncle from California"; Phillipa had no family—when she had told him that she proposed to sue Fletch for a divorce charging fraud in their marriage because she had not been told prior to it that he was the adopted son of Stephen Willson. "Legally, I am firmly of the opinion that she would not have had sufficient grounds," Uncle Andrew had written, "but it' would have meant heartache for Jenny, and for Fletch and Betsy, too, in the revival of all the old scandal that should be left decently dead. "But aside from the revival of an old scandal, I had to consider the boys, one of whom Fletch paid me the compliment of giving my name. Undoubtedly their custody would, under the circumstances. have been given to Phillipa, and that not only would have been harmful for the boys, but would have broken Jenny's heart. You see what I have done, I did for Jenny." Hi's letter went on to explain that some months before the twins were born, he had been without a secretary and Phillipa had volunteered to come to his office and help him. He had been called hurriedly from the office one day find ind inadvertently left the strong box containing a lot of family sapers open in his safe. The twins were three months old when Phillipa had come to see lim, showed him the copies she had made or obtained elsewhere, and told him what she proposed o do. She had not har? to go any farther. "Satisfactory arrange- nents were made," Andrew Stites had written, "but unfortunately I could not control her pervei'sity; ler delight in tormenting in so many devious vays the members of our family.

He went on to apologize for the difficulties which would be hac in settling various financial matters. He had been trustee for a half dozen different estates. He had had some money of his own "but that was gone. I haven't long to live anyhow—Dr. Bertolette will tell you what he told me two months ago—and I figured that my mother's estate, which is not Under my control, but will have to be distributed on my death, will take care ot what. I had to 'borrow from the various trust funds in my care. So I am simply talcing time by the forelock and advancing the date of my demise, knowing that if sufficient funds are not available to reimburse those from whom I have 'borrowed,' you will handle the matter, Stephen, so that no one suffers. "I realize now that I should not have tried to handle this thing with Phillipa alone. I have worried about the outcome ever since Bertolelle told me how long I had to live -two years at the most, he said- i;nowing that Phillipa would probably go to you and :/ou would have to take on the burden oi! keeping her quiet for Jenny's sake, '/.eeping the twins under your care for their sake, and daily seeing Fletch more and more unhappy. And then a Divine Providence removed Phillipa from our midst, and my only regret is that I did not assist." Dm, at my Miss Jenny's request, had been reading the letter akmd in a very shaky voice to the four of us. Her voice broke completely on those last lines and so did my Miss Jenny.

The largest regional chamber in the'South is the East Texas chamber of commerce. This month the East Texas chamber, will celebrate its twentieth anniversary. On March 24, 1926, a mass meeting of progressive East Texans was held at Longview. It was called bill; M. Kelly of Longview, Gus P. Taylor of Tyler and the late Eugene Beldunt of Nacogdoches. Two other regional chambers had been operating in Texas for some time but East Texas had not been successful in organizing one that stayed put. The 1926 meeting surprised even its originators. The time was ripe ifor aggressive organized regional effort. A few counties in deep East Texas Win. T. Froser & Co. The INSURANCE Men Automobile, Compensation, Fire and Liability Insurance 112 W.

Today the East Texas chamber is the largest in the South, serving 71 counties and one parish, according to the organization's magazine. It has a staff of 12 persons, a 194G budget of $100,000, about 200 affiliated local communities, a membership of several thousand individuals and firms, and a "grass roots" organization of local leaders. "We have developed a voice for East Texas which can be heard in Austin and at Washington in the interest of good government and sound economic progress," the magazine says. Other Texas regional chambers are alert and progressive and successful--particularly the West Texas group—and deserve praise arid respect. But this is En anniversary salute to the East Texas chamber of commerce on its 20th birthday.

Shamrock Service Plaque Will Rear 285 Students' Names SHAMROCK, March 1.—(Special) —The service plaque, given to the Shamrock schools, by the 1945 graduating class will bear only 285 names of ex-students of Shamrock high school who served in World War II unless additional names are turned in soon. Mrs. Smith is making a final appeal for additional names. "The only requirements are that the boy or girl at one time or another attended Shamrock high school and later served in World War II in some capacity. If your son or daughter is entitled to this honor, please see that his or her name is turned in to me at once," Mrs. Smith asked. The service plaque is now on display in the show window of Hunter's Department Store. The Soviet Union will solve all the tasks that it has set itself if the pack of aggressor hounds is kept chained. That is why the Soviet people are so watchful when the question arises of possible hotbeds of peace disturbers and intrigues against international security.—Soviet Foreign Commissar Viacheslav M.

From the time hastily rerouted transports disgorged their load, of surprised soldiers at Australian ports in 1942 and the first detachments of troops landed in the British is* les and Iceland, sports followed the setting up of Red Cross overseas recreation programs. G6lf was made readily accessible when resort courses were opened for OI visitors to American Red Cross clubs. Professionals gave their time, and local players challenged the Americans. At the Red Cross Hans Crescent club in London golf lessons were a part of the recreation program Yank visitors played challengers from Scotland Yard, from neighboring country clubs and government offices. Varied Sports Program Swimming, boxing, tennis, horseback riding, baseball, fishine. hunt- ng, all have been part of the Red 3ross program of sports. Supplies—or, in the early days, ack of them and local terrain have bene important —factors in shaping -he program. But frequently both have been overcome. In Iceland,, early in the war, an American Red Cross woman, a former Olympics star, defied the ruggedness of the island to coach winning baseball teams she later took Hi tour in the British Isles. A Red Jross man on Ascension Island pro- idcd a baseball diamond with the lelp of a steam-roller, GI muscle, surfacing material carried from hn mountains. A field director on \nton, tiniqst of the M.irshalls, nado softball bats of pick handles, nd a Red Cross woman stationed the Southwest Pacific made her wn water sports equipment. uke Most of Opportunities The American Red Cross sports >rogram makes the most of local pportunities, many provided with he help of local sportsmen. In Inia, for instance, tiger hunting on lephant back has offered an iinusu- 1 and extremely popular novelty. To help make such a varied and xtensive program possible, out- tanding sportsmen give their time, tony give exhibition performances, ome serve with the Red Cross as leld directors and recreation work- rs. Others work ceaselessly to raise loney for the Red Cross. Sports quipment dealers and manufactur- rs have donated supplies. Many pri- ate clubs have opened their facili- ies to the visitors.

Iflexleo'S d> eotoy genial pf 'agriculture in #w» By ttAt JEiOMBAY, March i — W— Kfish- vanu is a young Indian who has given up hope 6f ever swallowing 1 Western culture •— all because of eggs. He is a typical young Indian intellectual. He is very- proud of the fact that he can speak six languages. He wears Western-cut clothes and likes American movi6s, although he doesn't believe they are serious enough. There are two things in life that Krishvanu cannot tolerate. Great Britain— and eggs. His hatred of all things British is the ruling passion of his life. Like most Indians of his class he thinks that all things evil in the world originate in London. He sees the British rule of India as one continuous black record of brutality, extortion and degradation for his people. Yet Krishvanu dresses as much as possible as if he had just stepped out of Saville Row, and he hopes to speak the English language. For all of his advanced views on life and his yearning to be free of the shibboleths that have chained his people for centuries, Krish- vanu is an unhappy orthodox at heart. He is a Brahmin, highest caste in the Hindu religious hierarchy. The Brahmins are forbidden liquor and meat. They are strict vegetarians because of the rule they must never found the meat hot to his tried eggs—completely of their full horror. THen he unconscious "My first one was fried," he said, 'and when I cut it in half and the yolk ran out 1 thought 1 would faint. But I forced myself to sit there and eat it all." Fifteen times since then— Krish- vanu keeps scores on his egg-eating — he has forced down ah egg and each time it has bounced back up. 1 asked Kfishvahu how the egg tasted to him. "It ii! impossible to describe," he said, "except to say that It is horrible." "Well," 1 suggested, "why don't you try an egg beaten up in a chocolate milkshake? Then you couldn't see it, smell it, feel it or taste it?" "May be," said Krishvantii and then he asked doubtfully, "would that be entirely fair?"

Dr. French pointed out there was a sudden drop in activity in September and October after V-J day, followed by a snapback and what ap* peared to be comparative stability during the past three months.

Dr. French said the level of activity last month was 65.1 percent above the base period (the average' month of 1930).
