"She learned quickly and thoroughly." he said, "and seemed to take naturally to the air." It was this ' natural" element apparently that explains Miss Lok's proficiency. "I always thought flying would be lots of sport." she said, "and once a friend took me up. I was so delighted I decided to try lessons. Now I like it better than anything else." And with a parting wave, she hoisted her five feet and four inches into a smart looking fledgling trainer biplane and soared aloft. returns to her native Canton to seek a berth in her nation's aviation corps. Miss Lok, student in a flying school here, recently made har first solo flight and now, with tail spin at 4.000 feet to her credit, she looka forward eagerly to her pilot's license. Although she has lived practically all her life in this country, with the exception of two return visits to her homeland, the girl feels keenly the troubles of her compatriots across the Pacific. "We need men trained in aviation urgently." she said in faultless English as a serious expression replaced a smile on her face.

Then she said lazily. "Hadn't we better talk?" "Oh. certainly. What shall we talk about the weather? They say it will be hotter tomorrow." "I want to talk to you about my money." she said. Jervis continued to smile. "Your money?1' "Yes." "What money?" "You know as well as I do that Uncle Ambrose would have left me wealthy if he had not thoucht we were going to be married.

I've been quite sure since twenty minutes past four this afternoon." Nan caught her eyes away from his. They were twinkling, but under the twinkle he was dead serious. She looked down into her lap. and then of her own free will she tilted her head and looked back at him. "Well?" she said. Her lips just!

It marks a new deal for radio listeners who have spent fruitless and futile hours attempting to enjoy programs ruined by electrical interference from household appliances, oil burners, street cars, power lines, sign flashers, etc. If you have had a procession of service men trying to clear up your reception, only to fail; if you are still annoyed and exasperated by grinding static generated by necessary but noisy electrical appliances, go to your Kolstcr dealer today . . . Ask him to demonstrate to you the onty radio set that conquers man-made static He can demonstrate it in the midst of a collection of the worst electrical radio disturbance-makers ever brought together. And he will prove lo you that Aere-is a set that strips away everything except the true, clear tones to which you want to listen.

Come you remember that." "I?" said Nan. "Yes. you. I said. Td like to know your name." and she said, 'Nan.' And when you said "I'm Nan. this afternoon at twenty past four in the ferry house, well. I knew you at once so what's the good of all this in and out fighting? I'm an inquisitive man, and I'd like to know what's behind all this, and why Jervis doesn't know you saved his life." "Well. I think you saved it, said Nan. Ferdinand shook his head. "He'd have been gone long he-fore I got him out of the water if it hadn't been for you." The bright darting eyes went through her armour. "You were clever at dinner, but I saw the scar before you moved your arm just where I knew it was bound to be. Well .now I'm being impertinent but why doesn't Jervis know?"

In the silence thoughts moved between them violent, resentful, dominant, resisting. With half closed eyes Rosamund continued to smoke. Whatever happened, he should speak next. If it was a battle between them she knew where her advantage lay. She sat entrenched in silence. In the end it was he who broke it. "I don't think there's anything to be gained by this discussion. You played me the dirtiest trick I've ever heard of and now you wsnt your legacy. "And a bit over." said Miss Carew. her blue eyes veiled. "I'm afraid you won't get it.

Illinois does not want relief provided in a way that will increase the number ' of unemployed. Yet this is exactly what some people propose. Already, $16,000,000 has been borrowed from state highway funds wholly paid in by motor vehicle owners. If used for roads, $14,400,000 would have gone directly to labor. That sum would have given work to 42,000 men for 100 days ! Sustenance to 160,000 people! Now it is proposed to take one cent, of the present 3 cent gas tax, for unemployment relief. That means $9,000,000 more taken away from labor 26,000 jobs lost, and 100,000 more. people (dependent on those jobs) thrown into the charity lists. For every man you see working on the roads; there are two more you do not see. These two men work in the mines, in factories, and on railroads, preparing and transporting road materials. More than $1,500,000 from the building of roads in Illinois goes to coal miners in wages annually. Ninety cents of every dollar spent for roads goes to labor. Certainly, no larger portion of the relief dollar goes to the needy. 1 vliy take road jobs away from thousands only to throw them into the bread lines where they can proouce nothing. This is against all reason ! Fhat men want are jobs, not charity. Rosamunds riposte was swiii. "I believe Mr. Page has a vacancy Dial phone can't "click through.
