Bedtime Stories By THORNTON \V. BURGESS gbcky Waits For Reddy Just before reaching the farm where the fat hens and Bowser were, Blacky waited for Fox to catch up. It was tome time before Reddy appeared, fcr jg wasn't traveling as fast ™ w as when he had started out. vnn see that farm really was a Iritou: way from the Old Pas*St where Reddy lives. He had run very hard, because, you know, he was so anxious to get one of those fat hens. As soon as Blacky saw him he m in the thick' branches of a £5 pine tree. Reddy didn't see wm in fact, Blacky had been so f™'ahead that Reddy had lost] W est Bpe'ned light of WM some tirri': before. Out i East p]aved the of the bushes trotted Reddy. Hisi p]aved ]ow tongue was hanging out just a r- little and he was panting. Blacky Iras just about to speak when! Beddv stopped. He stood as still as if he had suddenly been frozen ititt. His sharp black ears were cocked forward and his head was turned just a little to one side. Redfly was listening. He was listening for the voice of Blacky. You tee he thought Blacky was still far ahead of him. For several minutes Reddy stood Bstening with all his might and Blacky's sharp eyes twinkled as he looked down watching Reddy. Suddenly Reddy sat down. There was an expression on his sharp fcee which Blackv understood perfectly. It was quite plain that Reddy was becoming suspicious. He had begun to suspect that he had been tricked by Blacky and led so hr away from home for nothing. Down inside Blacky chuckled, was a noiseless chuckle, for Blacky did not intend to give him«lf away until he had to. But when at last he saw that Reddy was beginning to get uneasy. Blacky spoke. "You seem to be feeling better, Brother Reddy," said he. "You must excuse me for keeping you waiting, but I did EASY GUESSWORK Guessing the location of the miss- ng high cards is often easy if you recall not only what actually happened during the bidding but also what failed to happen!

At this point South knew which opponent held the ace of diamonds! Since West had led the top of a worthless suit, East was marked with five or six spades headed by king-jack-10. iast would have bid one spade over North's one-diamond opening if East held the diamond ace as well as such strong spades. But since East had actually passed, it was evident that West held the ace of diamonds. At the third trick, therefore, South led the jack of diamonds; and when West played low, he put up dummy's king. That held the trick, and the diamond return cleared the suit, giving South more than enough tricks for his contract. * * • Yesterday you were David Bruce Burnstone's partner and, non-vul- FUGITIVE ON A DUDE RANCH by STEPHEN PAYNE COPYRIGHT 194O BY STEPHEN HIGH CARD VALUES of tlu FOCR ACES SYSTEM ACE 1 KING 1 QCTEN 1 JACK V, Total Value of Pack 16 Arerac?

Next rtory: Beddy watches the fit hens. [MISSI DAIRY ON] flOI,SUM is 2 Bread ANSWER: Bid five spades. The bidding indicates that your partner is short in hearts, and your shortness in clubs further limits the loss. The high spade contract should therefore be a painless sacrifice, and may even be fulfilled if your partner has a good fit for your diamonds. Score 100 for five spades, 30 per cent for pass.

So forget " "But I will help you. Cinders!" The girl gripped the man's hand. It felt as if it were trembling. Or was she only imagining that? "O. K., Bobbie." Cinders' voice, still low, was suddenly harsh. "Can you find a place to hide the stuff where nobody'll think of looking?" "Indeed I can. Leave that part to me." Nancy was atingle with anticipation. Although it was wicked to steal, this was quite justified. "How'll we get it?" Cinders would attend to that.

Nancy fears Pauline will use the money Nancy inherited from her father to back him in a theatrical venture. Nancy's heiress chum Marcla Farnsworth wires the ranch for a reservation, using her own name, confirmation to go to "Vim. F. Waller" at Smith's office. Donald Sturgis, young garage mechanic, jumps at Smith's idea that he get a job at the ranch and look after Nancy. Smith gives Don expense money but in a crowd Smoothie Dick, Alexander's tool, ."lifts" Don's roll and Smith's wallet. Smith suspects Don and, signing himself Waller, wires the Jim town sheriff to arrest Sturgis. Smoothie, trailing Nancy, learns she now has the securities representing her inheritance. Deciding to double-cross Alexander, he follows Nancy, wiring Sol Pcrriwell that he's a ranch buyer. He uses the name of Roger J. Barclay. Don "rides the rods" to Wyoming and is known at T Slash as Cinders Malloy. At the Jimtown stage station Nancy induces Roberta (Bobbie) Rowland, new ranch maid, to change clothes and identities. Complications increase when Don surprises Nancy reading a letter from her uncle addressed "Marcla Farnsworth." Young Tony Perriwell proposes to Bobbie, thinking she is the Farnsworth heiress, and is accepted, and Kirk Maxwell interviews her for a society paper. Smoothie instructs his pal Heavy to wait at the cookhouse for the securities he will get from Nancy's bag. Don asks Nancy to help steal Maxwell's manuscript. INSTALLMENT 23 Steal the stuff? Nancy had thought of bribing Stuttering Jake, who would be the logical person to take Maxwell's article and photographs to Jimtown for mailing. But could Stuttering Jake be bribed even if Nancy had the money? Besides, Barclay might drive to town first thing in the From sound and refreshing sleep Nancy awakened to the knowledge that another day had dawned on the T Slash dude ranch. Ike Skittles was rattling the lids on his stove and some one was rapping insistently on Nancy's door. "Yes," she murmured sleepily. Whereupon a feminine voice shrill with emotion cried, "I must see you, Bobbie. Can I come in" "All right." Nancy spring out of bed, while Roberta Rowland slid through the door and closed it behind her. The girl wore a flannel robe over gay pajamas and on her bare feet were fur tri-imed mules. Minus make-up and lipstick she looked pale and frightened. "I dunno what you'll think of me nor how 1 can ever pay you back nor anything," Roberta began, her words tumMing over one another. "The most gosh-awful thing's happened and I'm to blame 'cause I never did think of thieves on a ranch. I didn't lock my door and I was plain careless with that jewl'rj- of yours I'd have given my eyes to own." 'Not so fast and a little bit lower, please, Marcla," whispered Nancy. "Maybe it isn't so dreadful as—" "It's worse even'n I think." Tears glistened in Roberta's eyes. "I wouldn't have took off the rings only they cut into my fingers if I slept in em." What are you trying to tell me?" Nancy started to dress. "I woke up early ways had to before 'cause I al- I was—was what I really ain't. I thought how a swell lady make-believe rand it was to be even if 'twas only and I looked over at the dresser. They was gone, Miss Farnsworth! All gone, pearls, brooch, bracelet, rings, even your swell wrist watch. Stole!" Digesting this startling information, Nancy pulled on her second stocking. She had brought her ewels with her to remove temp- .ation from her temporarily blinded and hoodwinked stepmother. She had brought them witn her to prevent Hudson Alexander, whom she believed to be a designing crook, from getting his hands on them as well as on—" "Good heavens!" she exclaimed. The securities! I'd almost forgotten them. . . . Roberta, did you notice if that heavy envelope in the suitcase is still there?" "It's gone, too," said Roberta. 'Was there anything in it of— don't want to lose it, too. Whi you guess it was?" "I've not the slightest idea," sai Nancy, pouring water into he washbasin and sloshing it over he face with cupped hands. "Just si tight and play the game som more, Roberta." "Okay. Gosh, I feel 10 times bet ter since I talked to you. You're a real sport about it. I wish could do some of this hard work for you, but I don't dast. 1 "I'll make out. But you send a wire to Wm. F. Waller. Say 'Come at once. Urgent.' and sigi it Marcla." They went out together, Nancy immediately beginning to help Ike Skittles and Roberta starting back to her cabin. However Cinders coming across the yard to get the milk pails, met her with a cheery "Good morning, Miss Farns worth?" And only a mom en later Slim Cummings mounted on the wrangling horse, loped over to join these two in the yard. " IT - with the squirrels and the larks this morning', Slim. "And say, Miss UP ado meadow ;reeted Marcla, you look better withou' all that truck on your pretty face 'n you do with it." "Why so early up, Miss Farns worth" Cinders asked. "Boys, I've been robbed!" Now that -the first shock had worn off, Roberta, in spite o Nancy's telling her to take ii quietly, was going to make the Tiost of this catastrophe. It placec her once again in the spotlight. "Robbed!" echoed both young men, and Cinders certainly lookec shocked to numbness. After the girl had given her account of the theft, he said grimly, "I've got to ;et that stuff back for you." "That goes for me double," Slim declared. "Miss Marcla, that sneak s jus' as good as nabbed right now . . Eumn? Gabby and Shorty was speakin' about a tramp in the woods only night afore last. I'll bet-cha 'twas that skunk. jingle the horses and then — " I'll Slim . | Well, would lights not rustle. were still burning and a few people moving about, he would slip around through the aspens behind the cabins and come down back of the lodge to the northeast corner of the cookhouse. "Wait for me there, Bobbie, and I'll hand you the stuff. ... Is Ike asleep?" Nancy said Ike Skittles was asleep; she'd heard him snoring. She whispered, "Good luck, Cinders!" and after he had disappeared in the darkness she crossed ;he kitchen on tiptoe leaving the jack door open, the girl stole along the east wall to the northeast corner of the building and there waited, keyed high, thrilled; feeling a bit wicked too. Sooner than she had expected :here sounded -soft steps approach- ng. This might not be Cinders, so she flattened herself against the wall a few feet back from the corner. The footsteps ceased. Some one was at the corner, hold- ng out some object. Nancy took from the man a cloth-wrapped bundle and without a word the dim figure went quickly away. Back along the wall and into the kitchen ran Nancy, feeling oh, so guilty. Silent- y she closed the door. Then, feeing her way along in the intense darkness, she opened Ike Skittles' almost empty flour bin, and shoved the package into it. Next, she opened a 50-pound sack of flour which lay on the table, and after much struggling emptied it into the bin. At 5 this afternoon Ike had brought this sack of flour from the storeroom, saying, "Reckon I'll empty this in the bin." But some- hing had prevented his doing so. Tomorrow morning Nancy would tell him, "I emptied the flour for you." ' . When the girl was once again in her own room, she he,ard a faint sound on the Jim creek bridge. Stepping to her window she made out the dim and shadowy figure of a man slinking across that bridge, going away from the ranch. Was it the tramp— the bean-eating tramp— who'd been hiding in the woods? Should Nancy sound an alarm? It was too late now. The unknown man had vanished. _ 12:30— Dinner Bell Edition.

And indeed Nancy felt stunned. She scarcely heard Roberta continued, "It's knocked me for two loops Unless the sparklers are found I dunno how I ever can — Say, after I'm married to Tony maybe I can get the dough to square this with you, Miss Farnsworth." By a great effort Nancy regained her self-control and surprised herself by the calmness with which she began to soothe and reassure the greatly agitated Roberta. ••"Quiet down 'and act natural," she said to Roberta, as if she were years the elder. "Dear, I won't hold you responsible. It was my idea, this change of identities. I'm to blame. Besides, the jewels will surely be found." The jewels! Of how little importance were they compared to those stocks and bonds! However, Nancy had decided* to say nothing of this greater loss for the present. The man who had taken her precious stones had also taken the securities. If some were recovered, so would the others be, she reasoned. The reassured and comforted Roberta said, "That's sure swell of you, Miss Farnsworth. I never knowed a girl like you before, but you're 100 per cent with me. And me thinking all of 'em was snooty and narrow-minded and mean ---There's one thing to the good, though. The darned sneak thief never got the dough you give me.

"Yen, a good egg," agreed Cinders, staring. "Not in love with him, are you? Aw, I shouldn't have — " "Oh, sure it's all right for you to ask. I ain't high-hat nor uppity Yes, I kinda like Slim. Fact, I like him heaps. But it's hopeless." "Of course for him it's hopeless, even though you're not so high- toned as I'd figured and can use slang as natural as a common fellow like me. Uh-huh, you seem to be a regular scout, so I'm going to ask you another question: How about Tony? He's been shinin' up to you. Any hope for him?" Roberta's reply astounded Cinders. It was a tart, "Mind your own business!" as she went quickly on to Cabin Number One. Cinders ran his fingers through his reddish-brown hair. "Ain't women queer? And touchy!

The ruddy-faced young man went about his work in such an absent-minded manner that Stuttering Jake "cussed him out." The first breakfast had not been eaten before Kirk Maxwell came charging from his cabin, roaring at the top of his voice, "Somebody on this ranch has taken my manuscript and my photographs That thief stole my old blue sweater, too!" A minute later, when news was STORIES IN STAMPS By I. S. Klein broadcast that Miss Farnsworth's jewelry was also missing, guests popped out of cabinr. The bunkhouse came to life with a roar, cowboys buckling on guns they had almost 'forgotten they possessed. The lodge disgorged three scantily clad gentlemen, Old Sol, Tony and Roger J. Barclay. Every one who had nothing else to do swarmed around Maxwell and Roberta. Order was eventually established. As the. first breakfast got under way, Mrs. Perriwell said severely.

DESERTS HIDE SCARS OF 4,000 YEARS OF WAR The Italo-British conflict oh two African fronts is important . in Europe's crisis, but 'the god of the Nile, pictured on the Italian East Africa stamp above, sees these campaigns as minor engagements in a struggle that has continued for more than 40 centuries. Greater conquerors than Mussolini have won and lost empires in the deserts of Africa. The kings who built the Pyramids sent armies to battle in the desert; Assyrians and Persians conquered Egypt. Alexander extended Greek power to include the north of Africa. Rome destroyed Carthage in the third century B. C. and Augustus took Egypt as a prize of conquest in 30 B. C. Decline of Rome's power made the Mohammedan conquest easy in 639 A. D. The Crusades included an African expedition. Napoleon ran into trouble when he launched an African campaign. Construction of the Suez Canal during the 19th century introduced British influence, but final peace was not effected without prolonged struggle. Italy gained a foothold in Africa late in the 19th century, gained revenge for defeat at Adowa in 1898 by conquering Ethiopia in 1936, combined Eritrea, Ethiopia and Italian Smoaliland into a single colony—Italian East Africa. Italian.! possession of Libya dates from 1912, after the Italo-Turkish War. Plan Is Asked For Character "A character-building program through recreation is not a series of short-time plans, but a full-time, constructive, balanced community service," Ford Hoffman, state supervisor for Work Projects Administration recreation, music and art projects, said in the closing address of the fifth annual conference of WPA recreation directors here yesterday. Hoffman said that well-trained leaders would be provided for any state community in need of a recreation program. The program.would depend upon the community's ideas of its particular needs, he said. Wallace Kclso, of San Francisco, regional supervisor of public activities programs, emphasized the place of recreation in the national defense program in keeping the conn- try's morale at a high leveL Hal Wood, chairman of the Boys Community Club of the Young Men's Christian Association here, discussed orientation through clubs, and Robert Perin, field executive of the Boy Scouts of America, described the scope of scouting. Students Hear Dramatic Skits Two North Phoenix High School assembly groups were for a brief time yesterday vicariously cosmopolitan as they listened to short dramatic skits in German, Italian, and French by Miss Muriel Goodspeed. On the National School Assembly circuit out of Los Angeles, Miss Goodspeed "wowed" listeners with a character monologue—"Dumb Dora at the Football Game"— and played the piano in a racy, brilliant number, "March Winds".
