The other faction is equally adam.iiit in its conteijtioji that thp present hil! in the western war js just the calm before the storm, and that action will begin with a vengeance, come the vernal equinox. General European peace doesn't soein io be within easy reach at the moment. But after the quaint tricks that bav; been pulled in European politics during the past few years, nothing seems impossible. There's nothing 'in the world to stop Europe's "nilprs"from having peace, if'they really 'want it. If they askpd their peoples, .they would get a decisive answer. Americans aren't supposed tp bull their heads into Europe's affairs. We firfi supposed to'inipd our own business. It isn't considered good manners to interfere when the man pex'l do'ir quarrels with his wife, even wji.qn be starls beating her. Yet, if somebody .didn't slop the argument, the',, entiiv community would soon get a baii/lasto in it^ mmilh.

Awaiting hfr in Ihe morning on jipy breakfast tray wore notes froin him — amusing iiiul endearing. Tiiey'd reaehecl an agreement at last. They would forget the last fc-iy week* of ijicir lives since the Moravia disaster find start all over. As sqon ps it could be ar ranged, her marriage to Gilbert would be annulled and she and Vincent would return to America. If Mary would awake sometimes nt night and remember Gilbert's kind gray eyes and Hie boyish, unruly red hail-, she'd brush tile thought aside. If she would pause sometimes in looking at Vincent to wonder if Carla's lips l);id flamed to his, she would shut out Ihc picture. "There could never be anyone but you," Vincent would (ell her, his old assurance returning. "Smitten— that's me. Crazy, goofy, simply hepped." That stolid British nurse, Miss Babcock, sometimes made Mary nervous by her silent disapproval. A married woman — Dr. Gilbert Lenox's wife— to have so attentive a visitor. Mary could almost read her thoughts. It was because of this thai Mary refused to lei Vincent take her home. "Afraid of a scandal, aren't you, sweet?" he teased. She couldn't explain to him, but (here was another reason. It wouldn't be fair to let Vincent go with her to Gilbert's rooms, so intimate with all that belonged to him. * * t TN the days f«er she was home, Vincent seemed to relax. "We'll soon be out ot this,'? he promised, lie he took her for daily walks. "You and I— back lo Manhattan. You and I, Mister and Missus, just as we'd planned before all (his happened." . Tea in bidden-away teashops. . Dinner .- at ' night "and the walk home in blackout, arm in arm. But she couldn't bring herself to let Vincent come inside. TJieit good night kiss was at tlie door. "Your kisses aren't the same,' Vincent accused her one night drawing away sharply. "Is there some crazy idea" in 'your head that makes you think I'm not on the leve) with you?" "No—no, of course not. It's onl> —well, I'm not over what happened yet." But deeply wUhjn her, Mary knew something' was different S|ie fought oft her strange feeling '"-• • * i * ' •- fPHE next morning, her thought:, ., still perplexing her, Mary took her drawing board lo Hyde Park hoping (o forget 'the scene 'with Vincent iii finding something amusing to sketch. Newsboys were shouting. Mary read the apron banners (hey wore Moravia Sinking Reopened." It had come, then! Miss Babcock was right. There -was to be another investigation into the mysterious sink'ing of the ship. £>ne would be a witness. She bought a paper, reading hastily through ihe story. The name of Anna Winters leaped up before her eyes. She read— 'Among those (o be called for questioning will be Anna Winters, 23, of Dournemoulh, now living in London." For n minute, Mary thought pf nna—so beautiful and ethereal in (he name red dress on the night the Moravia' went down. Then she brushed all thoughts aside except of the coming hearing al Scotland Yard. She'd promised Miss Eabcock she'd tell all she knew. Was there, after all, Eo much to tell? The young man on board who'd followed her. Carla Marchetta's friend. The sight of the periscope in the water before (he final crash. Mary was flushed and breathless when she reached her rooms. "Oh, hello, sorry lo sfarlle you." A commanding figure in well- ilored uniform rose from the chair. Gilbert Lenox) Mary threw her hands to her face. "Oh, Gilbert!" lie stepped to her and drew her lands away, staring at the newfound loveliness. "Jove, you're stunning! I knew you must have been beautiful, but I'd no idea it would be like this." He was studying her face, his eyes hungry. "Look at pie!" Mary's dark lashes swept up. She felt the pulse in her throat beating wildly. "Do you -know now?" she whispered. Gilbert drew back, his hands thrust into his pockets, as if he were keeping them - purposely clenched. "Once you'tried to tell rne something in the jiospital," he began solwly, "I couldn't understand it then. Now I 'know what you meant. You're the girl in the restaurant—you're Ihe girl from lidme!" "Yes—I'm lhat girl. Ann I'm not niia Winters— I'm Mary Carroll." I s "Fuii|iy jhing,' I couldn't forget £ you. And although 1 could never t| explain it, you and Annn Winters ;f were niixed up in my mind, % Something about you was the [' same. So I didn't inairy a girl it named Anna Winters— 1 married ' an American, Mary Carroll. 'Your voice— your face, everything is just the way I remember you in the reslaurant." Mary rah 'toward him with a t'lad cry. "You forgive me then for masquerading as Anna? It all happened so quickly — reading 1 was dead— knowing Ihad Anna Winter's things, her passport. And I had to stay in London. It was my only chance to be near Vincent Gregg, the man I'm going to many." ' • " * * t MARY gasped/ as she realized what she had said.

Lenox look (lie blow smiling. "Of course," he said at length but all Ihe eagerness had gone out of his voice and eyes. "I'd forgot- len for n minute. It's all right Ihough. I knew all along you' were in love with Vincoiil. You can have your freedom whenever you like." • Story whispered, "Thanks," amazed because she felt no ela- Gitbert turned and began to slip into his officei-'s overcoat. Mary came close lo him, touching the braid timidly. "Are you leaving _ so soon? I thought perhaps you'd \ come home to stay. I—if would ' be nice if I could talk to you ignin, to thank you for every- hing." Gilbert Lenox was brusque as le answered. "No, I'm here only for a few days. Came back to supervise ihe preparation of some special scrum for- gunshot wound cases. It's being made up in our London hospital laboratory. I'll be it the hospitnl' while I'm here so you may keep these rooms until •ou've made your own plans." Mary Carroll should have been •elievcd that lie was going—glad now that this scene, which had to "ome —was over.' He intended icejjmg liis bargain. She could lave her freedom. She could be Vincent's wife. "Best of luck if I don't see you again," Gilbert was saying "as he hook her hand.
