Jan. 30.-- (U.R--Ely Cul'oertson and Mark Van Dorcn differed sharply in a debate here last night over the kind of world federation that it is possible ' to create in order to maintain | world peace. I Culbcrbon, noted bridge expert' and advocate of the "quota force" | plan for peace among nations, de- ] clared a workable plan could be , put in effect without Russia's par-1 ticipation. Van Doren.

ILLINOIS COMMERCIAVTELEPHONE COMPANY He wasn't the friendly man who had given me his handKerchief tc cry in at his office that morning. This man was all policeman, remote, suspicious, as cautious as it he were walking on eggs. "One other possibility . . ." My voice faltered. Bob Leiphan said flatly: '-I was busy while you were in that faint. I've talked over the telephone with Jeff Haverson and Liz Leyden. jboth have alibis and witnesses to back them up. for every minute ol this evening. Do you see . . .'' He went on questioning me for' , an hour and I answered him ; through still, numbed lips that I held back a torrent of misery. 1 Through the French windows, as ,we talked, I could see other men with flashlights going over the terrace inch by inch, and finally l a couple of them came inside and ] took fingerprints from the door kncbs and furniture and things on i my dressing table. | "Not that I think they'll find (anything," Bob Leiphan explained briefly. "If--there was someone here he wore gloves. There were I only your fingerprints on the gun.' I i" couldn't Dlame him really lor | what he was thinking. It was all i toe pat. One bullet shattering the mirror in the hall and the other bullet--I had been right in think-j ing there were two' shots--found imbedded in the plaster just below where the mirror had hung. The J£un. Leiphan said, was a Belgian- made automatic--a Walther /.6o. And, being one of those foreign guns smuggled illegally,into this country by returning Gi's.-its ownership "couldn't be traced. It might have belonged to me or to anyone. A souvenir gift from some re-|j turned soldier friend. I could, have fired those two, shots at random and then have, I fallen down the steps and feigned the unconsciousness in which Marie first found me. Indsed, it was s the very sort of thing a woman., with an overactive imagination! might have cooked up, in order to j clear herself of any suspicion o f ] the original murders. 'Irving toi make it look as if she herself were i in danger. It made me sick to; think how complete it all was.' And how corny. No wonder Bob was furious, thinking I had played, i this cheap trick to fool him. | ' Marie came back into the roomi before Leiphan finished with me.f She brought an ice pack and her, notice. "I'm quitting, Miss Dorm. I That broken mirror means bad, lack. I'm not going to stay in a house where such things happen. Leiphan turned on her. "Don I be foolish. If it's bad luck for '· anyone. I think it's bad for Miss I Donn. You're safe enough." ' I Which goes to show how little I Hob knew of the truth tnen ! "Besides." he snapped. "There !\\;il be a policeman on gisard here 'from now on. There will be no irr.ore prov.lers." j "Do you think that's necessary? I asked bitterly. After all. if he | didn't believe my story why put anyone there to guard me? «Ycs--I think it is." I couldn't be sure what he meant ·bv that. 1 " In the end Marie agreed to stay 'until I was out of bed. All of which certainly didn t 'leave me any happy thoughts to console myself \vith-whcn Leiphan finally left and my room was dark and the only sound was the occasional footsteps of the off-.ccr vrrio lisa been left on guard on tr.c terrace.
