The cRik was Rulh Miller. Young Mrs. Sutton, snug and warm iii her new birthday babies, slid i. shopping list across the counter and made an honest apology. "I ought to be shot for coming in so late," she said "You've got all \ o u r adding up to do." Kuth Miller took the list and smile! In the year she haa woiked at Blackman's Mrs. Suttoi. was the only woman customer who had regarded the counter between them as a briuge, not a hairier. In consequence, she gave Mrs. Sutton the same devotion she had once given a star on top ot a Christmas tree: they were both remote yet intimate; untouchabl Ijiut iiers. .Mis.

In hot and fetid Delhi where the British Raj had held sway for generations over some 350,000,000 Indians, Mountbatten surrendered his viceregal powers to India's constituent assembly. The thirtieth and last viceroy of India rode through Delhi streets so packed with cheering Indians that police charged the throngs time and again to force a passage for the ceremonial coach and its team of eight white horses. For the moment there was a truce in bloody communal strife, except in Lahore, where scores more died in riotous outbreaks of thuggery and arson which have taken a toll of hundreds in recent the Delhi crush and Pandit Jawa-, rahal Nehru himself personality pleaded with the fthrongs to let the % iceroy j coach,* and those o£ the new government of India, pass on to Durbar Hall, the seat of the government. Within the hall Mountbatten for the last time took his place on the viceregal throne. Across from him on the opposite wall was the new flag of the governor-general of India--the office which he assumed with the end of the viceroyalty. At Karachi, capital of the new Moslem state of Pakistan, 71- year-old Mohammed Ali Jinnah strode across priceless Persian carpets to a high-backed mahogany chair, and there was sworn in as governor-general by the scarlet- robed chief justice.
