"law Rides" Plus ROYAL MOUNTIES No. 8 XXX Almost before Jeffrey Ha/lett said to HO nnd feet Peiifie'ld Downos. Strnub and Zcrn were on their way. Stephen Willson said Konlly, "Come, Betsy, come over to the library and liq down until they come back." She went off silently between her father and Kletch, his arms still around her. Dru and 1 trailing along behind them. Some one had closed the library door and as Stephen Willson pulled it open, 1 heard a voice saying, "They told me you were all engaged and I should wail here, sir." Then the same voice quickened and became warm nnd efiMer, "Heavens lo Betsy" it said It was Travers. With his old greeting for Betsy that was a formula over the years. She stopped so quickly and so suddenly that I almost bumped ttito her. Travers came toward her swiftly. "1 came to you, Betsy, when I heard, just as quickly as I could." Betsy said fiercely. "Don't touch me. Travers.'You don't know." "I know you're in trouble," he answered. "Thai's all I need lo know." lie gathered Betsy to him possessively and with one impulse we all turned and left them alone. Dru dropped into one of the hall chairs and began to cry as though her heart would break. Flelch just, stood'looking al her,- clenching and unclenching his hands, wanting to go lo her and hold her to him" as Travers hnd hold Betsy—and Phillipa was between them. More effectively than she had been in life. He looked at mo as though he thought I were crazy when I said to him as I put my arms around Dru, "Don't worry. Flelch. This is the last summer storm." But his father understood. Ho look Fletch's arm and said, "Come on, son. Everything works out in time. ff <r .? • I look Dru lo her room and when I came down again, Kern and Slraub were back wilh Downes. Well, Pen Downes, I know, could charm anything female. But it was a surprise to me to see how he handled Zorn and Straub. He apologized for not having come forward before; he had gotten a very | bad cold in the storm and he was still not too strong after his scige of malaria. They practically thanked him for being there at ail and apologized for having lo bother him. When he had come in. he had laid Phillipa's. automobile keys on the table, and Straub and Zern said nothing about the hours they had had men searching for them in the rock garden. Downes told the same story as Betsy, but much more subtly, so that you felt il was just a neighborly dropping in on Betsy's part. When Phillipn had found the powder room empty, she had joked about il and thought il all very amusing. They had laughed aboul it together, had sat and talked for a while, and then Phillipa had put her hand down between the cush- Midnight Show AT THE NEW Saturday Sponsored by IIP.M. V. F. W. SUNDAY ions of the davenport and founA Betsy's handkerchief. It was storming by this time but Phlllipa had flown Into a rage and. in spile of «ll that Dowries could say or do. she had lorn out of Ihe house, across the lawn's after Betsy. Pen Downs said. "I didn'l know what to do for n few minutes. Betsy had at least a ten-minute start on her. I knew that nine chances out of ten her rage would subside and her common sense assert itself bo- fore she reached Cliff's Edge, and lhal she would not make any scene wilh Betsy." I swallowed hard. Phillipa's common sense would indeed have assorted ilself, and Hint handkerchief would have paid off royally. "Bui it was storming bndly," Pen Downes was sajUng, "and 1 decided I'd better go after her. She hud n crazy temper. 1 called and ran but she was running madly and she either wouldn't listen to me or couldn't hear ine for the wind and rain. Then vhere was a terrific flash of lightning. II was like running into hell and Ihe oak slarled 16 fall. I- saw in the light that Phil had veered her course. Then I couldn't see her for Ihe branches of the oak tree. I was soaking wet, and I fell shaky from the crush of the 'tree so close at hand, and' I turned and went back to the house. That is all 1 have to tell you, gentlemen." ft * if 1 They went out then and measured. They called in experls from the weather bureau and professors from the University in Philadelphia and scientists from Ihe largesl electrical company in the county. They all agreed with Pen Downes. Phil, either terribly frightened by the crash, or even stunned by the lighl- ning. had veered her course, and in doing so had become completely confused and had dashed forward over the quarry bank thinking she was running toward the house. "Murder-" they had cried, and then our murder, as had others, petered out. "Accidental death," now they said. "Divine Providence," Uncle Andrew had said. For three days they had cried "Murder!" and in those three days the structure of our lives had tumbled about us. But my family is proud: they'll hide their scars and in time people will forget. And in time Stephen Willson will know the day he has waited for; j the dnv when his children would come home with thir famailies. Al lunch on Sunday, I saw ils foreshadow. Mr. Willson was al the head of the lable and my Miss Jenny was al ils fool. Between them on the one side where Fletcher and Dru with the twins between them. On the other side were Betsy and Travers, and I bclween them. And I just think I'll save my place at Ihc table, and Andrew Stites' place, loo, until Ihore are Iwo others to sit between Betsy and Travers. For there will be. you know. (THE END) Japs May Like Speech by Byrnes by RUSSELL BRINES Tokyo, March 1 — (/T>)— Secretary of State Byrnes' strongly-worded statement on U, S. • foreign policy is sure to receive .wide attention among the Japanese. The Russian situation has become increasingly important in recent weeks among Ihesc people. They are affected directly by everv Soviet move southward. Thousands of Japanese have relatives and' friends who disappeared behind the Russian wall of silence in northern Korea and Manchuria. So the most prevalent question recently asked foreigners by Japanese in all walks was "is America going to back down before the Russians?" Some Japanese probably will take Fresh hope from Byrnes' remark thai Ihc Allies must not prolong making peace or continue to impose troops on small impoverished nations. They doubtless will be quick to interpret Japan as one of Ihe latter. News of the Churches CHURCH OF CHRIST 5th and Grndy Streets Waymon D.

DOROTHY DiX Time of Happiness According to traclilion nnd romance, the happiest lime of n woman's inc is w, K .-n sno is sweet, six- loon. Thai is supposed to be a time wncn a girl's world. is Tilled with sunshine and roses and she never has a carping care or a cloud on her horixon. Never was there a greater fallacy. Sixleen is no season of unalloyed joy for girls. It is a lime of stress and strain and frustrations, of anxieties and fears, of disappointments nnd despair and Ihe fact lhal these trials and tribulations over which they shed such bitter tears are trifles fit which they will laugh later on in life does not make them any easier to bear at Ihe lime. For the little sixteen-year-olds are just taking their first step into the big, wide world and it is ;t strynge and new country'to. them, whose manners and customs they do not know and whose paths are unfamiliar to them. They are -bewildered and confused and do not know which way to turn. This is why they do so many queer things. The reason they are so loud and noisy and giggle so much is because they are afruid and have to scream to keep their courage up. And their sloppy clothes and hoodlum ways are nothing but their effort to call attention to themselves. •' Not Having Fun But let nobody think that these youngsters who are trying to break out of their baby play-pens and into grown-up night clubs are having fun. They are having griefs of which their elders know little. Every- day I get dozens of tear-soaked letters from Mamie and Sally and Susie "telling me .of their woes and asking how to settle Ihe problems over which 1 they are. break- Hitler Had No Idea How ing their little hearts. ' The chief one. of course, is how to make Mamma und Papa see that they are old enough to stand alono and walk by themselves, without one or. the other of their parents holding their hands nnd that it is sheer cruelty to make theifi tome home from a party just as it is getting started. Yet it is the fnle of Ihe average sixteen-ycar-older to' have to have such a fight with MotfTer and Father over her dales that it takes most of the pleasure out of them. Then the sixteen-year-old girl lives in terror of-a three'-headed calamity befalling her: First, that.she won't be invited to a party; second, that no boy will ask to be her escort, ind third and worst of all, that if >he docs get to the party, she will so a wallflower. Talk about-suf- "cring- In the whole black list of ragedies. none surpasses that of he luckless maiden who has to spend her evenings sitting among he chaperons or in the ladies' Jressing room, while other girls tre dancing their slippers off' of heir feet. Also, there is boy'trouble that sixteen doesn't know how to handle. She wants to be popular with the "ads. She feels disgraced if she sn.'t. But she hasn't .had time to develop the'come-hither look'in her eyes or to get a. line that will reel he youths in. She is up against one of the great mysteries of life and that is why boys flock around one girl -like bees around a horieypot, while another girl, just as 'pretty and bright and as good a dancer, ievei» has a boy friend to bless lerself with. There is nothing that the'girl who isn't a wolverine can do about it exce'pt break'her .heart over it. When we are . older, we- have learned to take the blows-of fate and come up smiling, but when we are young, we are so-tender and vulnerable that they hurt intolerably. And that is why sweet sixteen is not the happiest time of life for. a girl. • to .S. Strange FIRST CHRISTIAN Sunday, March 3. liMG.

I received several slarlled looks anfl an occasional nod in return. But no words. This was get'ling me nowhere. I had barely cracked their British reserve. I cased Ihe joinl further and decided to concentrate on two guests, hoping one al least would break down and speak. My pros- peclive victims were a plump lonely woman of aboul 50 who sat at-a table by herself and another solitary diner al an adjoining lable — a young captain who was up lo his Ihick-lensed glasses • in Tolsloi's "War and Peace." I smiled and nodded so vigorously al Ihe plump lady lhal my face began to crease like a Greek comedy mask. She smiled back anc several times she drew in hoi breath as if lo say something —but she couldn't quile make it across the barrier. And yet I bet she would've given anything lo have had a nice chat with somebody I'm not insane enough to asser thai I "know women" but I do think I know when they wanl to talk and this woman didn'l have anyone to talk to. 1 had even less luck with mj myopic capitan. Every lime he trlanced over I would give him a grin as wide as Texas and nod vigorously. He would start nervously, look back again uncertainly and then dive into his soup and Tolstoi with a frantic hunted expression — as if he were afraid I as going to ask him bluntly "what time is it?" Day after day passed and I got nowhere. T lived in a strange hal of the world of Camaraderie where nods and smiles took the place ol language. I was slowly making silent friends with several guests but we might as well have been Eskimos and Zulus instead of American and Britons. Several looked puzzled because I didn't speak. Americans jarc aJ-waystfC^pecled lo speak first. The last night ..I was .desperate. When a plump lady passed I looked up and grinned and deliberately winked at her. She laughed and giggled but didn't speak. I turned to the captain glanced at his Tolstoi and frowned and shook my head. He just shrugged and read oh At meal's end I knew 1 had losl. My experiment was a failure. So when a cheerful looking RAF officer walked by I looked him squarely in the eye and said "hellow." That broke the ice. "Cheerio," he said and smiled and walked out. Everybody looked relieved — and so was 1 after a week of fruitless pantomime. Perhaps if 1 could have experimented longer — say a month or six months — I could have brought the empire to terms and made it -speak first.

Bui under Ihe unfavorable weathei conditions there was nothing else lo do bul halt the offensive." "Rommel's retreat was due to the Ilalian failure lo prolecl supply convoys lo Africa. One hundred and twenty lanks were wailing a Naples for shipment." "The Ilalians are very reckless with their utterances; ..They have light-minded telephone conversations and use an insecure code." "Naturally everything would be done to destroy Moscow'and Leningrad AAA there was 42 degrees oi frost, the people could hardly go out of doors and German soldiers' hands froze to their rifles." "The loss of motor transport to the cold was the greatest German loss m the Russian winter. "No 'strategic withdrawals' are made. The Russians must pay with blood every day. The Russians use 10,000 lo 15,000 men in attacking on a kilometer of front." "The English send an entire fleet squadron against single coaslal batteries on isolaled Norwegian islands, and in this way achieve small successes. "England can be destroyed How the United States can be overcome one does not know."
