Like Are Pho ettl the framework or skeleton of moat plants. Dr. Paul M. Laughton and Dr. 0. C. Mortimer, of the plant physiology section of rJRC, exposed sugar beet leaves to small amounts of carbon dioxide under a bright light. The carbon dioxide was first made radioactive so it could be identified when it got Inside the plant..The leaves were allowed to absorb the gas for varying periods and then were killed in boiling water. Radioactive cellulose was found in the leaves even though they had absorbed the gas for only 10 seconds. "This cellulose must have been made from the radioactive gas," the council said, "It follows that the plant can make these extremely complex changes, from air to wood, in less than 10 seconds."

In the same unadorned language characterizing his published letter, he expressed himselt grateful for having heard from her. He then told her something about himself. He had been an accountant In , Buffalo. But a few years previously his health had failed The doctors advised outdoor work In the country. He then fore bought a small farm and moved onto it, with his wife and three children. But, the follow'.-. Ing tpring, his wife was killed in • a motor car accident. Kaye did not elaborate on the tragedy. From between the lines, however, Mis» Johnson got a clear idea of bit dlitreu and dismay. | H sympathy rushed out toward ~ this unknown man who wrote 10 ' timply and sincerely. Kay* had continued (o live on • the farm. By that time he was heavily Involved in It, financially (ih« fathered) ai well as In othw mpectt. And, indeed, the farm had done a great deal for him. His health had improved. He liked the work; the life In .general. But hit plait w»t rather itolattd. He had little in common with his neighbor! who, unlike hlmielf, were born larmen. Nor bad bi found la Ibtrville, the nearest community, anyone whos* tattei approximated nls own.

He reiterated tha he had nothing in mind, save a congenial correspondence. Miss Johnson answered in kind. Kaye's second letter wa as prompt as the'first. And before she quite realized It, shi was in the middle of a regular exchange. As the summer wore on, both parties wrote with less restraint. And a form of friendship developed between them. N c 'OW in her darkened room ; Miss Johnson asked herseli what had been wrong about that? The correspondence bad been conducted with the utmost propriety. Kaye had not inserted in a single one of his letters anything which might even vaguely have been classified, in the words ot the detestable Mrs. Synes. as "hot stuff." In fact, a penetrating reader would have detected a highly impersonal tone. But that was just the trouble. There would be In thi*. small town, which loved gossip, no penetrating or charitable-minded readers. Those to whom Mn. Sjrmet might hint or, in any final analysis, show the letters, would believe exactly what they wished to believe, as Mrst Symcs herself had done. Avidly they would leap to the conclusion that the poor frustrated schoolteacher had, Anally and desperately, (on* out to tet • man in the only way the could —through a marriage market, possibly a questionable one. She tried to picture herself UUiiuj Mn. Symei to do oer then holding . h*r IMM high, ignoring both veiled to- lucndo' and open comment, rid* ng out the storm as It were. That picture railed to develop properly. She knew that she could never do It clouded by the faces of the townspeople, those of the ribald shoe men, Mrs. Hart's dark, aware face and the fair-complexioned one of Miss Dillon—to say nothing of the faces of her pupils, imagined as a kind of grinning derisive sea confronting her daily. Already, almost, she could hear word-snatches whispered behind her back and catch sly badly-suppressed giggles. Most frightening of all was the thought of her fellow boarders at Mrs. Copeland's. They deviled her enough as it wa*. But, with this information in hand, they would be utterly unable to restrain themselves. Lacking in finesse and understanding, rau- c o u s and perpetually joke- minded, they would simply let themselves go. And life would not be worth living. Upon that point Mrs. Symes had been terribly and shrewdly right No. Cora Johnson could not bear the thought. And she was caught, in a trap. There was no alternative except to buy that iorrible woman's silence with a horrible commodity, hush money. • « • »f ISS JOHNSON got up then; bathed her face. It wu a drawn, harassed face that con- ronted her out of the bathroom mirror. And, she told It savagely, the ace of a fool. Why, why on earth, badn't she had the sent* to leave those letters tt her ocked bureau drawer? But she'd rummaged through the drawer his morning for something else, nd come upon them.
