NO CONFESSION. "I've been an awful care to you.". Hope said to Dirk. "I've been your esponsibility all along. It was you came to see that first night. If ou hadn't gone to Jersey, and poken to me, I shouldn't have come, 'vc a notion, too, that you persuaded lupert to keep me on. I want to you that I understand all you've done . . . your motive, I mean . . . and that you won't have to worry any more." He felt that she was making un- ,ertain passes, watching for bc- rayal. He said: "Thank you for thinking my mo- ive was right. It was always you I was thinking of as in the case if wiring your father." She was too quick for him. "I. though you wanted to share 'esponsibility with him.". "Partly " he acknowledged. "But ; thought it .would do you good to lave him come, .to: patch up the old quarrel." She gave him her full dark eyes. "I believe that; 'I believe it was partly, maybe mostly,, that. I didn't jejieve it ... I never thought of such a thing until just now. Before ast night.. .there were. times when I hated you." . She looked away. Her 'eyes .came back to him. "The first time I -saw you," she said; "there in the circus ... I mean when' you spoke to me, when I iurned around.and saw you standing here • . • it. seemed as if I had to 30 trust himself to look into her eyes again. It wouldn't have mattered however. Her eyes were closed. He said: "If I can do anything . . . Any- with you, to follow you . . . That was why . . ." Again she looked away.. Her voice was low. "That was why I came to you." He said quickly: ."But you talked to Eupert." "I thought there'd been a mistake" ^still the low voice. "I thought Chow had made a .mistake. I thought I'd never, see you again." She started, straightened. Her ;lanee chilled. Her voice grew hard. . ."I was:telling you .that I under- Caving stood," she 'said. "You had a right to protect yourself, your, house." "Prom what?" he asfced. Her eyes fell. She seemed not to areafhe. He leaned nearer. His hand closed over hers. .".- ' "From what, Hope?" more gently. His blood was racing with the thing she had said a moment before . . . atout that first night at the circus,; "about Wanting to follow him. If he ; could make her say all, tell all! But she was tight-lipped and; silent. After 'a moment she rose and stood beside the window, silhouetted against the show-freighted boughs, her whole figure saying, "Dpn't. come. Don't speak to me." He came, stood beside her. "I'm sorry, Hope. You were try- Ing to tell me something. That's all I want to hear." 'Just this," she said. "You were right to watch and to guard your :. The danger Is past. You dont have to. worry any more." She turned, met his eyes squarely. "Will ypUibelieve me?" Bhe said. •"QI; course," alter a pause. JMrk wished that he might accept the peace of mind she was so plainly striving' to bestow. ''You don't .mean," he said,' "that you are out at danger yourself?" VOf ..course," she answered.' Ijirk said; finding his voice husky: "Some 4ay you'll : everything." '. • Her eyes drowned him. He looked aVay from'them, down at. the hand lyjrjg on his, a small hand, browner than rtlie one it rested on. •uStanding tike this, with merely that ]^ht,cp»tftpt of the hands, they seemed ' to breathe one breath, to " ~ tilric'"ilttitf '• "trier inwir,' ~f>lntlmim-* ringed hand tu his lips. He dldn'L thing. • Understand?" "I understand, I know." Her hands wore her own now They covered her face. "And you won't go tonight?" "Not tonight. I'd better not.' She was right, jot course. He wen out softly. "Tell me which," said Isabel. Dirk was about to say, "Whicl what?" when he realized that she had been talking earnestly ever sinci he had emerged from the stagline and taken her out of Joe Vincent'! arms. It was a silver room, and becausi the year had entered December, thi decorations encroached upon the Yuletide. Tiny silver Christmas trees even and erect as sentinels, glisten' ed against the walls. Wreaths o mistletoe and holly with silver leaves rainbows of- Jewel-small lights twinkled frostily. There were twc orchestras, one at each end of the ball-room. The floor, under the pale silver ligl)t, was smooth as ipe. "Let's get out'," said Isabel. "That fat Pardmore man is lolloping this way," ' ! ' They fled toward a smoking lounge and the Pardmore man whirled about like a top and grabbed •the young hostess. There was no one at all in the lounge. Isabel looked particularly well tonight, Dirk thought. There wasn't very much of her wine-red velvet dress—except around the feet —but its color did something to her hair and to her skin—made her more gold and white than he had ever seen her. She said, half-glancing at him: "I'm relieved that Rupert's better. And Hope, too. Wish she could have come. But who'd want to ... and not danoe? And the winter we're RUMORED SLAYING WAS BEING PROBED BY COUPLE MEMPHIS, Tenn.,'June 16 (/Pt— A prominent young Memphis woman charged today that she and a Prcs- jyterian minister were flogged last night near Earle. Ark., where they lad gone to investigate a rumored laying in a cotton strike. Miss Willie Sue Blagdch, 23-year- old member of a prominent Memphis family, told officers that she ind the Rev. Claude Williams of Little Rock were beaten by a band of men when they refused to reveal he name of the man they had gone :o Earle to interview. Miss Blagden said she was struck 'our times across the back and -highs with a heavy leather strap studded with brads and that her companion was lashed 14 times. After the flogging, she asserted, she was put on a train for Memphis and she did not know what had become of the man, identified by her as a member of the Religion and Abor Foundation. She expressed fear that he might be badly hurt. A doctor, who asked that his name withheld, said he examined Miss Blagden and found three bruises ibout five inches wide across her oack and thighs. Miss Blagden said that she and the Rev. Williams had gone to the Arkansas town in an effort to determine if Frank Wecms, negro tenant farmer, had been beaten fatally in an altercation growing out of the eastern Arkansas cotton strike. Miss Balgden's mother, Mrs. Ola Blagden, said her daughter was a secretary for Fanny Hurst, the New York novelist, and said she was home on a visit. The cotton strike was called in eastern Arkansas several weeks ago by the Tenant Union, an organization not affiliated with the A. F. of L. The walkout has been accompanied by charges and countei charges of violence and denial ol civil liberties. Workers seek a $1.50 daily wage.

Thompson Does 2 Errands of Mercy DAWSON, Jims 10.—Duties of being railroad commission chairman keep Ernest O. Thompson mighty busy and this year he's doubly busy looking after'them and still finding time to campaign for re-election. But never too busy is the forceful Railroad Commission chairman to do an errand of mercy —or even two. Recently he was driving rapidly down an East Texas highway when he noticed a woman and a small child frantically waving to him to stop. He did and learned that a neighbor of the woman had had a heart attack and needed the attention of a physician. Thompson was asked to hurry to Dawson and notify the elector to come. After completing his mission as quickly as his car could get to the physician's office, the commissioner •tortcd to resume his journey when he was asked to help another in dis- tiess. A man approached the car and asked if Thompson would give him a ride to Corlsicana where the man's father lay dying. The son not only got the lift, but arrived in Corsicana in a.v short time as Thompson's car could make the distance. OLD AGE LAW HIT AT BY CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR GREENVILLE. .June 16 (/P)—Texas' old age. pension plan, as administered under the present state administration, was under fire from a second source today. Tom P. Hunter of Wichita Falls, aspirant fo; the governorship, last night advanced a plan to tax gross incomes of more than $0.000 to provide pension revenue. He asserted the present setup was "neither adequate nor efficient." "Nearly $500,000 has been spent by the old age assistance bureaus created by Allrcd and riot a penny has been paid to the old people." .he said. "I propose a gross income tax of not more than one per cent on' all gross incomes in excess of $6,000 a yrar." This tax. he said, would fall heaviest on natural resources, "the exploiters of which are best able to pay." The pension plan previously had been subject to attack in gubernatorial campaign spaechcs by F. W. Fischer, Tyler. Fischer proposed a lax on natural resources. *». BODIES RECOVERED HUMBLE, June 16 (/Pi—The waters of the San Jacinto river near here last night gave up the bodies of a young married couple who drowned trying to save the man's 8- year-oid sister.

The baby, the Berlins' fourth child, was born at Doctors' hospital; and while awaiting its arrival, the song writer also awaited his bonus bonds. the snow! She'd better stay in awhile. Elinor and Gage are cruising, by the way. They've left Florida." "Happy anywhere," said Dirk, for want of something better. Isabel remarked that she doubted it. . , • "What's 'happy' anyway?" she asked. "Does any one need to be happy? Yes, some people," answering her own question. 'But I doubt if I was ever happy In my life." Then, forestalling any contradiction or condolence from Dirk, she added, 'I don't mind, I don't think I'm really capable of happiness.' Isabel delivers a home truth, tomorrow. FISHING ON STREET BALMORHEA, June 16 (/Pi—Fishing is good on the main street of Balmorhea, says Perry Wagnon, who stated he recently caught 14 fish in the canal that runs through the main street. C. R. Cross, the druggist, offers to wager he can catch the limit in the ditch any day. It's n hip moment in any boy's life wlicn llie Dr. Popper hour rolls 'round. A juicy combination of palate-pleasure and physical-satisfaction. Chilly, thrilly, bilcy-swcet—a wholesome liquid bile to cat. Tides kids over the tnugh spots at 10, 2 and 4 o'clock.

"Mister, when you got some haulin', just 'phone for us!" Telephone calls mean jobs to Jerry: cracker boxes and crates and grand pianos to be picked up in one place and set down in another. Naturally he wants those calls to be fast and clear—without mistakes that might cost him money. And, at the same time, he wants his telephone bill to be reasonable. Manufacturing telephone calls which measure up to Jerry's expectations is • the big job of the men and women who work for this company. It isn't an easy job. There arc thousands of problems to be solved in the day-to-day workings of a great telephone system. It ha's been a fortunate •thing for Jerry that behind the people who handle his calls stands the entire specialized organization of the Bell System: the services of American Telephone & Telegraph Company's great central staff—the researches and inventions of Bell Laboratories—the savings which come from the buying and manufacturing organization of Western Electric. Jerry Baker, "moving mountains" with his truck and his telephone, may seldom give a thought to the things they do for him ... Yet with every call that comes to him he benefits from the work they have done. Not only have they helped make his culls faster, clearer and better; but in the face of the growing complexity of the telephone system, they have helped this company hold the cost down to a price he is willing and able to pay.
