Its sole purpose was to protect jealously the rights and the property of the ward. It granted the guardian no privileges; instead it imposed highly strict responsibilities, duties and procedures. A guardian was called upon to use his best judgment in good faith in paying the neccs sary expenses of his ward from the income of the estate, never from the principal. Expendi ture of the principal for any purpose required the advice and consent of the court. The guardian must act with the highest degree of fidelity and must exercise the utmost prudence in his choice of investments. He could purchase real estate only with court or statutory authorization; without it he had no right whatever to carry on a business enterprise on behalf of his ward, much less on behalf of himself. Plantation Manor had been a speculation to which the court would never have consented; the fact that it had paid off did not mitigate the offense. Under no circumstances was was legally Val's. It was paradoxical: in one sense, as Todd 1 had said, Val had not lost a single penny, yet, as the law stood, Win had robbed her of a fortune. "He had to give the court a written accounting, with an affidavit, annually by the first of April," Blake said. "How did he get away with it?" "Accounts have been falsified ever since accounts came into existence." Todd replied "I don't know the details, but you know the loopholes. Besides, he had to do it only once." Yes. If Win had cashed in Val's investments after April I of that year, he would have had the covert use of her money for almost two years and only a single falsification would have seen him through that period "Gibbon had never been too bright, but he played it smart. He was already on the fence so far as the law was concerned, so he was careful not to fall off the wrong way. Going to Win and demanding hush money would have been blackmail. He meant in Blake's office. "Afterward," Todd went on, "Win admitted it to Tessa, and Tessa came to me in a panic. She was desperately anxious about Win, especially afraid of his heart condition — another emotional upset like that one might kill him. Tessa's position was that Val hadn't actually lost anything, so she didn't deserve the money she was demanding. Win was taking the stand that he might owe Val something legally, but nothing morally. My job was to make Val listen to reason." Blake felt the wind off the bay turning colder. He was recalling one of Barccllo's most telling shots: "Then no one gains by Mrs. Hayward's death except by release—by release from repeated, intolerable demands for money." Win and Tessa! • * • The realization shook Blake: Win and Tessa had suddenly found such release. "Of course I h;.d to keep Ruth entirely in the dnrk. I couldn't possibly let her learn something as shameful as this about her father. "To go back a little—There was only one way to get Val to hold off, and that was to give her some money and promise her the moon.'At that early stage of the game the Wingatcs weren't willing to pay her so much as a dime, so it was up to me to gain the time 1 needed.

And the I hey haven't y from the guardian must account to the ward for all profits, and the ward could take them. The essence of it in Win's case was that all the profits he had made from the use of Val's money in Plantation Manor had belonged to Val; and in addition he could have been charged interest at the highest rate allowed by law. All the money he had invested for retirement income, and the Income itself, plus interest, "So he looked her up about two weeks ago with his proposition." Todd nodded. "And naturally she bought it. She went straight to the Wingates in a towering rage. Win denied the whole thing. It wound up with Val . .. you guessed it.. . turning her back and banging out."

S WATCH THIS SPACE DAILY FOR MORE CHRISTMAS BARGAINS SAVE NOW! By JAMKS MARIXHV Associated PreM Xe\vi Analyst WASHINGTON <AP) — John W. McCormack, 71 -year -old j speaker of die House, has just about put t he finish on any chance of making It impossible for him to move up the the presidency. If President Johnson should die then, under present law. next in line to succeed him are McCormack of Massachusetts and 86-year-old Carl Hayden of Arizona, president pro tempore of the Senate. Both are Democrats. In American history there have been only three laws controlling succession to the presidency: 'Die first in 1792, the next in 1886, the last in mi. The founding fathers, when they put the Constitution together, ducked the problem of saying who should assume the powers of the presidency if the president and vice president died. They left it to Congress. •O- -0- -o- Congress passed its first act in this field in 1792. It put the Senate's president pro tempore and the speaker of the House next in succession behind the vice president. It stayed mat way undisturbed until President Garfield's assassination in .1881. At the time he was shot, it happened that the House had not chosen a speaker and the Senate had no president pro tempore. For five years there was discussion and debate. Then in 3886 Congress changed the law. eliminating the two congressional officers and putting the president's Cabinet in line of succession, starting with the secretary of state. Another 59 years passed and in April 19-15, President Franklin D. Roosevelt died. Vice President Harry S. Truman became president. II Truman had died then, under the 1886 law, his successor would have been Sec-1 retary of Slate Edward R. Stel-, tinius Jr. I -O- -O- •!)• | On June 19, 19-la, eight days before he accepted Stettinius' resignation. Truman asked Congress to change the 1886 law. He wanted the Cabinet taken out of direct line of succession. j He argued that under the 1SS6; law a president, since he picks his own Cabinet, could name his own successor. "I do not believe," he suld, "that in a democracy tills power should rest with tlie chief executive." He said lie thought that, as far as possible, the office of president should be filled by an elected officer, not an appointed one. So he asked Congress to abolish the 1886 act and return to the 1792 act, but with a switch. Instead of making the Senate's president pro tempore next in line, Truman »aid the speaker of the House should come behind the vice president and then the Senate's president pro tempore. Truman said he considered this more democratic because the speaker of the House and all House members have to be elected every two years while senators face the voters only every sLx. Not everyone agreed with him. For instance: Edward S. Corwin, the constitutional authority, wrote: "The caliber of our speakers, in the main, has been somewhat below what the presidency requires and deserves. If speakers are compared with our secretaries of state, the result is decidedly in favor of the secretaries. ' There was some irony in wtut followed. Tinman had made his request to a Congress run by his own Democrats. They ignored him. Ho didn't get action until the Republicans took control of Congress in 19-17. They changed the law. making it a kind of combination of the 1886 and 171*2 laws, for this was the result, still In effect: Next in line behind the vice- president are the speaker of the House, the Senate's president pro tempore, and the Cabinet, stalling with the secretary of state. •0- -O- -0- This was doubly ironic, for when Ihe Republicans passed this act, t«o Republicans were in line of succession to Democratic Truman if he died, since there was no vice president then: Speaker of the House Joseph \V. Martin of Massachusetts and Sen. Arthur II. Vandenberg of Michigan, president pro tempore of the Senate. On Nov. 27 the nation got a close-up glimpse of the two elderly men — McCormack and Hayden—who are in the line of presidential succession if Johnson dies. On that day Johnson addressed a joint session of Congress on television and McCormack and Hayden were sitting right behind him. In the past week there was increased discussion about the presidential .succession. And former President Eisenhower, writing in the Saturday Evening Post, suggested the 19-17 law be changed back to the 1886 law. •o- -o- -o- In short, he thinks the secretary of state and the other cabinet members should be directly behind the vice president, not the two congressional officers.
