Faires of the Gila County Superior Court told a large crowd which attended the Americanism dinner staged last night by the Globe Junior Chamber of Commerce. "1 am not an alarmist," Judge Faires said, "but it is my conviction that there never was a time in our history when we were threatened so much as we are now. A militant public opinion which is Informed about and alert lo the danger can overcome any efforts to destroy our way of life." P. D. I. Honeyman, naturalized as an American citizen in the Gila County Superior Court, gave his concept of Americanism. "I became an American citizen by choice after I had reached maturity," he said. "I know this way of life is the kind I want for myself and my family. Without citizenship I could come and go much as I pleased but that was not r-i nn-c- r> u 10 » • «;,*„ enough.

Isn't that a sign- once South shows strength by bidding two no-trump, how can North tell that the game is in a major suit rather than at no trump? The cause of the trouble is a misunderstanding shared by many players. It is not a sign-off for South to bid two spades on the second round of the bidding. If South had a really bad hand, he could pass two diamonds or show a preference by bidding two hearts; for a bad hand must get out of the bidding as quickly as possible. South's failure to drop the bidding like a hot potato—even if he bids only two spades—is clear evidence he has reasonable values. Of course if South bids two spades, the rest is easy. North can then afford to raise to three FUGITIVE ON A DUDE RANCH STEPHEN PAYNE COPYRIGHT 1940 STEPHEN PAVM? WHAT HAS HAPPENED: With the connivance of her uncle John William Smith, Nancy Smith is leaving Philadelphia for Perriwell's T Slash dude ranch at Jimtown, Wyo., because her socially ambitious stepmother Pauline insists she marry Hudson Alexander. 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 for a ranch reservation, using her own name, confirmation to go to "William F. Waller" at Smith's office. Donald Sturgis, young garage mechanic, jumps at Smith's idea that he get a job at T Slash and look after Nancy. Smith gives him expenses money but in a crowd Smoothie Dick, Alexander's tool, "lifts" Don's roll and Smith's wallet. Smith suspects Don and signing himself \Valler, wires the Jimtown Sheriff to arrest Don. Trailing Nancy, Smoothie learns she now has the securities representing her inheritance. To doublecross Alexander, he follows Nancy, wiring Sol Perriwell as "Roger J. Barclay" that he's a ranch buyer. 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 begin when Don Surprises Nancy reading a letter from her uncle addressed "Marcla Farnsworth." Young Tony Perriwell proposes to Bobbie, thinking she's the Farnsworth heiress, and is accepted, and Kirk Maxwell interviews her for a society paper. Nancy's securities and Maxwell's manuscript are stolen and Nancy's uncle writes her that Pauline's securities were stolen and Nancy is suspected. He flies to Jimtown. INSTALLMENT 28 A stocky rider on a tall bay horse, accompanied by a gentleman in city clothes, who somehow strongly resembled a bulldog, rode across the Jim Creek bridge ant stopped at the cookhouse. Both men dismounted, but only Sheriff Crowder jingled his spurs across the dining room to the kitchen vhere he found both Ike Skittles and Nancy Eleanor Smith. "Mornin" Ike? Howdy, ma'am? 1 greeted the sheriff. "Hi! What you ookin' at there" He saw only an innocuous can of beans, a faded blue sweater over he back of a chair, and lying on the seat of the chair, a large browr 'nvelope which had been ripped open, thus exposing typewritter heets of white paper and several lictures. "Mornin', Chalk? Ike Skittles Irawled, reaching into his hip jocket for his plug. "This stufi s part of the loot which was stole jffen this ranch night afore last!" "You don't say!" ejaculated Irowder. "I got Tony's not, which s one reason I'm here . That's Maxwell's piece for his paper, uh? Hey, don't pocket your obacco till I get a whack at it. spades.

Here's my plug, Chalk." Nancy had become quite still, as still as towering White Cap peak itself, but Crowder scarcely noticed her. "If I lose this, tel'gram no harm done," he remarked with a grin. "I memorized 'er. I did. Say, where'd this part of the stuff as was stole come from? Who got it? ... Ike, what's goin' on up to that first cabin" "Uh, what is?" Ike stepped across the dining room to look out at the door. "Bluster my fetlocks! Sol and the missus. Maxwell and Slim, Tony and Barclay all bunched up thar! Hi, Chalk. Miss Farnsworth's come out and I heard her say kinda loud and mad, 'Ask Tony who I am. He knows!' . . . Come on, Chalk. Come on, Bobbie. Who's that as come with you. Chalk?" Chalk Crowder neglected to answer the question. But he beckoned to the stranger who had accompanied him to the T Slash, and followed old Ike at a run. Nancy, however, remained where she was, biting her pretty lower lip and staring at the torn envelope, sweater and can of beans that Mrs. Perriwell had left in the kitchen. "I found these where Barclay's car was parked last night," she had reported. 'The car's missing!" Quite suddenly Cinders Malloy Sturgis appeared at the door. "Even though I'm now a guest," he began, "I'll go on seeing if I can't master the rural art of milking ... Bobbie, what—?" His eyes had found the articles on the chair. 'Cinders, its a showdown. I knew it would come, but I'd hoped against hope the securities might—" Nancy's voice trailed off. "Showdown? I don't get it, Bobie. Of course I saw the sheriff and another fellow—deputy maybe, though he looks like a city man— were here and half the ranch bunched at Miss Farnsworth's cabin, yet—what's that stuff?

"Just what I'm asking myself Cinders. We'll see. Me must see!' Darting to the flour bin, Nancy plunged both hands and arms bare to the shoulder, deep into the soft flour and from the bin brought forth a small bundle wrapped in cloth, but so coatee with flour it was impossible to tel the true color of this cloth or exactly what it might be. When she opened the bundle, exposed lay her own pearl necklace, her bracelet her rings, her brooch, jewelet wrist watch and lastly, a well-filled envelope. With trembling fingers the excited girl drew from this envelope certain stocks and bonds. She noted the value of each. The total ran up to $200,000! Here were the securities of the three Smith girls Nancy, Elizabeth and Jane! Here also was $50, stock and bonds that belonged to Mrs. Pauline Stevenson Huntington-Smythe. The identical securities that Nancy had left in her stepmother's dresser in Philadelphia that night when she had left for Wyoming. Nancy's voice was a husky whisper as she asked, 'This—this is what you slipped to me to hide inders?" "No, Bobbie. I never saw—" 'What's going on here?" manded Tony Perriwell at de- the dining room door behind them. A his shoulder stood Smoothie Dick Barclay. Nancy turned; Cinders turned In appearance and feeling, they were the guiltiest pair ever to face stern accusers. And Tony was instantly the accused. "The—the missing jewels!" he shouted. 'The stolen jewels! Anc the thieves!" Barclay said nothing. Yet Nancy saw this man's chiseled features lose their impassivity. His eyes dilated, his cheeks twitched, his lips tightened; rushing blooc crimsoned his neck and his face Heavy steps crossed the dining room. Into the kitchen walkec Sheriff Chalk Crowder and stranger whom the sheriff had not yet introduced. Following these :wo came Sol Perriwell, old Ike, Mrs. Perriwell, Kirk 'Maxwell, Slim Cummings, and Roberta Rowand. Roberta, was first to speak. 'Why, there's the missin' necklace —and all the rest of the things and that envelope you told me about, Miss-er-Bobbie." "Yes," said Tony, his popeyes 'ixed on Cinders and Nancy. His face underwent a miraculous change as it broke into a broad smile for the girl known here as Marcla Louise Farnsworth. "What are those papers it looks like Bob- >ie has hauled out of the envelope? We—11, I recovered everything for you, my sweetheart, and I caught the thieves red-handed with the oot!" 'These two here's the thieves?" asked Chalk Crowder, Indicating Cinders and Nancy. "Can't you see they are?" Tony jvas enjoying himself. "See the 'lour scattered all over? They'd ifd the plunder In the flour bin. Your coming this morning, sheriff, cared the crooks. They decided o beat it with the swag, but didn't quite make it. All's clear now except who stole Kirk Maxwell's manuscript." Spoke the sheriff, 'That sure ain't clear. Why any mug would wipe worthless stuff like writin' and pictures, then get sick of his jargain and leave the truck on he ranch .where he stole it is danged peculiar. . . •. Say, miss," urning to Roberta Rowland, 'what'd you say your real name vas?" "I told you, Sheriff," snapped Tony. "I told Ma and everybody who she is. She's Nancy Eleanor Smith, soon to be Mrs. Anthony Thomas Perriwell. I've told you why she came here under the ^arnsworth name. Now, darn it, et her alone! I hear a car. Somebody's coming. I'll see who t is." With this Tony went out quickly .nd Barclay sidled over toward Cinders and Nancy. Like a flash, he girl slipped between the two men. "Keep your distance!" "Yes. Get away from me!" arked Cinders. "Get away from Bobbie. Or—" Up came his fists. Recalling how hard were the isls of Cinders Malloy Sturgis, nd also how the ruddy-faced pung man had deprived him of is "rod," Smoothie Dick obeyed vith alacrity. The man who had come with iheriff Crowder strode over to he table and looked at the loot n display. The jewelry received nly a cursory examination; the locks and bonds held his interest. However his heavy-lidded eyes revealed nothing of what he might be thinking and his bulldog face retained its stolidity. Mrs. Perriwell broke the silence. "By the way, Mr. Barclay, I found this can of beans where your car was parked. Some one has penciled 'Wise Guy' on the label. Does that give you a hint or a clue?" "Beans? 'Wise Guy'?" the man repeated blankly. Then he gasped, "Well, I'll be—" and bit off the rest with a click of his teeth. "The words 'RAT' and 'Double crosser' are penciled on that torn envelope, Mr. Barclay," said Nancy with pointed emphasis. Sheriff Crowder blustered, "Reckon I've got two arrests to make. I reckon—" "Tony!" Mrs. Perriwell cried. A sound from the dining room caused her to turn and look into the farther room. "Tony, what's hit you so hard of a sudden?" When Anthony Thomas Perri- well had rushed outside, he saw Halfaday Hank crossing the Jim Creek bridge in his stage car. As Halfaday threw on his brakes, Tony was beside the auto. '"Lo, Hank? Bring out any telegrams?" "Why, yeh, Tony," said Halfaday Hank. "I done so. But that wasn't my reason for comin'. I had me a passenger. That old Bedtime Stories By THORNTON W. BURGESS Reddy Hides The Fat Hen Reddy Fox was in a fix, he certainly was in a fix. Here he was with a fat hen which he had come such a long, long way to get, and now he had no chance to eat it for Bowser the Hound was on his trail. Now ordinarily Rsddy Fox can run faster than can Bowser, but it is one thing to run with nothing to carry and another thing altogether to run with a burden as heavy as a fat hen Reddy's wits were working quite as fast as his legs. "I can't carry this fat hen far," thought Reddy "for Bowser will surely catch me. I don't want to drop it because I have come such a long way to get it, and goodness knows when I will be able to catch another. The thing for me to do is to hide it where I can come back and get it after I get rid of that pesky dog. Goodness what a noise he makes!" As he ran Reddy watched sharply this way and that way for a place to hide the fat hen. He knew he had to find a place soon because already that'fat hen was growing very heavy. Presently he spied the tiollow stump of a tree. He didn't Icnow it was hollow when he first saw it, but from the looks of it he thought it might be. The top of it was only about two feet above the ground. Reddy stopped and stood up on his hind legs so as to see if the top of that stump was lollow. It was. With a quick look :his way and that way he tossed the fat hen over into the hollow of that stump, and then with a sigh of relief darted away. With the weight of that fat hen off his shoulders and the worry about it off his mind Reddy could give all his attention to getting rid of Bowser the Hound. He had no intention of running any farther :han he must. In the first place IB had travelled so far that he did not feel like running. In the second place he wanted to get back o that hollow stumn and the fat ten just as soon as possible. It wasn't long before Reddy realized that it was not going to be so easy to fool Bowser the Hound. Bowser was too wise to be fooled by common tricks such as breaking he trail by jumping far to one :ide after running back on his own tracks a little way, or by running along a fallen tree and jump- ng from the end of it as far as he could. Of course he tried these ricks, but each time Bowser simply made a big circle with his nose o the ground and picked up Neddy's new trail. Reddy didn't know that country about there at all, and little by ittle he began to realize how much :his meant. At home he knew every 'oot of the ground for a long dis- .ance about in every direction. This made all the difference in the vorld, because he knew just how o lay all kinds of tricks. But here it was different. It seemed o him that all he could do was to run and run. Next story: Farmer Brown's Boy has a glad surprise. coot a-snoozin' in the back seat. . . .

"Let me take it to her, Hank." "Okay." Seizing the telegram Tony bolted into the dining room, there to rip open the envelop and read: "Roberta Rowland: Jimtown, Wyo. Yours received. You're crazy if you believe that a photograph of Nancy Eleanor Smith. I never saw that girl in my life. "PAULINE S. H. SMYTHE." Tony uttered a painful, strangled cry like that of a mortally wounded animal. Rallying in an instant, he thrust the telegram into his pocket and gulped, "Nothing's the matter, Ma." "Is too somethin' the matter," announced Halfaday Hank at the outer door. "What business you got, Tony, a-readin' telegrams that ain't yourn? By heifers, I'll—" "Shut up, Hank; Shut up," pleaded Tony huskily, and to escape the veteran stage driver bolted into the kitchen. Halfaday followed, but neglected to accuse Tony a second time because there was too much else of interest taking place in the kitchen of the T Slash dude ranch.

Before the Spanish conquest, Quito was the capital of the vast Inca empire. Under Spanish dominion, it became a cultural and art center of the New World. The equator, from which Ecua-; dor derives its name, crosses the republic near the capital, but the altitude of the city makes its climate temperate. Most of the cultivated area of the country lies in a .high plateau between two ranges of the Andes. Construction of the railroad between Quito and Guayaquil, the principal seaport, was One of the world's greatest feats of engineering.
