The Upper Des Moines-Republican, January 21, 1931 We Have Changed All That By Herbert Quick and Elena Stepanoff Mac Mahon Copyright by Ths Bobbs-Merrill Co. WNU Service THE STORY CHAPTER I.—In the ancient Russian eity of Kazan, under Soviet rule. Com- mlSBar Vlllnsky's Investigating squad Invades the palatial home of the Kraa•In family, aristocrats, with the avowed purpose of determining whether the government shall requisition the heuse. Vllinsky Insults Musla, youthful daughter of the Kiasslns, In the presence of her mother, who Is powerless to act In her defense, CHAPTER III.—In the Krassln salon a small group of aristocrats, among them Vladimir, Musla's acknowledged fiance, young former officer of the czar, lament the confiscation of their property by the Bolshevlkl. Mrs. Kras- sln admltn she fears for Ilya's safety, though he has not participated In any movement against the Bolshevlkl. Ilya announces the seizure of his automobile by Vllinsky, whom he recognizes as a former dishonest steward on the Krassln estates, Vllinsky also recognizes Ilya. CHAPTER II. — Commissar Lorls, head of the government In Kazan, la urged to conllscate the Krassin home for the service of the people. The family consists of former Judge Krassln, Mrs. Krassln, a son, Ilya, formerly a Guards' officer, and Musia. Lorla prom- lues to Investigate. (Continued from Last Wednesday.) And then began that strange tour through the old and labyrinthine establishment, the end of which we have seen In Musla's suite. Always Mrs. Krassln, like the hen-pheasant concealing her nest and her fledgling, sought to eVnde the necessity of surprising Ilya In his room. She thought of protecting no one else. She entered the rooms of Vladimir and the young men, the discovery of whom would have been like the unearthing of a treasure to Vllinsky, with no attempt to give warning, and finding them deserted, she merely explained that they were occupied by members of their extensive family who had taken refuge In Kazan. All the time she was vainly seeking some way to convey a message of warning to Ilya In his room. Sometimes Vllinsky opened the door to a room wlileh Mrs. Krassln said he had seen, to find out whether or not she was deceiving him. Always he found that she had told him the truth. All the time she was forced nearer "intt~nearer to the necessity of going Into her son's room, and of thus bring_•» him and this Terror face to face. It filled ner wltn dread - Vilinsky had ahown his f?rocity In his behavior to her; and she remembered what Tiya had said when she asked hirOif Vllln- sky bad recognized him npjone of the family at whose complaint lie had gone to nrlson so. Ions agOj, "Yes,. L lielleve he Knew me I Tarn "sure he did f" Was there In her mind the secret thought that If Vllinsky once was introduced Into her daughter's room he would forget this dreadful quest for which she suspected? She could not have told you If she had tried, probably—and she would not have' tried. Whatever may hnve been In the rnlnd of tlfat agonized and perplexed mother, she now played the cnrd she had been holding back as she reached Ilya's door: she walked calmly past It and stopped at Musia's. "How nbout this door, old lady?" nsked Vllinsky, pausing nt the entrance to Ilya's suite. Again she was diplomatic; she allowed a slow smile of half contempt as if at his Ignorance and stupidity to curl her lips. "Oh, those are rooms we saw long ago," said she. "Here are the last on this side. Enter, please." "Yes," said Vilinsky to protect his self-respect, "I remember now." He entered Musla's room, as we have seen. He swept aside the hangings which masked the door to the inner room. He refused to allow the young girl to retire when her mother, horrified by his familiarities, requested her to do so. He asked her to play for hlm^-to play anything—he In his peasant's smock I If Mrs. Krassln had harbored the Idea that he might forget Ilya Krassln In this room, her surmise was correct. Mrs. Krnssln understood his indescribable leer as he addressed her, and knew what he meant when he said that he wanted this room and everything in It left just as It was when he came there to live; but she quite trusted to Musla's rearing to prevent her from understanding. In fact, that she could not understand was, as between Mrs. Krassln and Musin, what the law calls "an Indisputable presumption," and Mrs. Krassin as the court, would have refused to admit any evidence to overturn It. Of course Musia could not understand I And the girl from force of habit carried out this false presumption of naivete. She stood there with her face blank of all comprehension, like that of a child, her slight rounded figure revealed by her informal attire. a very bewitching person to the eyes of the coarse and brutal Intruder. Little, graceful, very feminine, will) hair of straw color, and brown almond- shaped eyes, she was a new type to Vllinsky—and he acted according to his lights in the premises. He suddenly sat down beside Musla and pulled her down upon his lap. l Vlllnsky's attendants, who were waiting in the hall outside the room, were astonished to see a pale slim girl In negligee run out of the room, start back at seeing their sinister group, and then speed away past them Into another part of the house. They stood amazed for a moment, followed her to the next turning, found that she had vanished, and then they ran back with thoughts of assassination or other resistance In their minds. They found their chief standing with a rather foolish look on his face, over the form of an old woman who seemed to have fainted on a sofa In the luxurious room. "I will show these nobles," said Vllinsky, "that their time has come I . . . Well, old woman, come to life here 1" Mrs. Krassln slowly rose to a sitting posture, and looked upon him with an, expression. In, wjilch. hate, Indlgna CITY PROFESSIONAL DIRECTORY.

Musln's world came crashing about her In downfall, in that scene with Vilinsky. She had two contending leellngs: she must be avenged for this nsult, Should she, a daughter of the boyars, have laid upon her, In her own room, the filthy hands of this creature Vilinsky, and upon her soul the stain of his commands and his Innuendoes—and must this thing go un- avenged? She grew hot with rage. And then her other feeling blanched tier face and left her cold with fear— the feeling that she, even she, was defenseless! The very gods would have fought for her ancestors. The very moujlks could now exult over her, lay their hands on her, In her own house, In her mother's presence. And there was no one to whom she could fly or appeal for vengeance or protection. She could not go to Ilya—he must not be endangered on any account, Vladimir? Yes, he would flght for her— but where was he? He had come Into the Krassln house In the night like a mouse, nnd was awaiting the proper time to slip out—nnd what could even as gallant a champion as Vladimir do against the risen sea of the people? What could not the wretches do? She had nearer awful tales, not yet sup ~pi[es contradicted, of the nationalization of women. Was she to be the first vie tlm of It In this doomed city of Kazan? It was almost inconceivable, but she, Musin Krassln, was defenseless against It, unless the Bolshevikl had some rules for her protection: she was an easy victim to this bushy-browed lout In the peasants' smock. Her father? He was the last person, In prosperity or. adversity, of whom any of the family thought. Yet, hiding away even from the servants' eyes in closets and attics, after steal- Ing back in the dusk to her own rooms, anil ou finding them vacant of visitors, changing her clothes to something more fitting, she stole, for the first time in weeks, to.the rooms to which her father had for years been confined us an invalid. The dusk was just shutting down into the night. Judge Krassln was sitting in a long flowered dressing gown which was wrapped carefully about his feet, read- Ing n law book. "Who Is it?" he exclaimed fretfully. "Oh, it Is you, my daughter? My nerves are very bad tonight, and you startled me. I am very glad to see you, of course, Maroosia." "I am sorry I startled you, father." She had come to her father, a frightened child, to cling to his hand, with some instinct that he might stand between her and a danger to which he was himself immune; for neither father, brother nor mother was under the shadow In which she moved. They could only be made to die. She stepped to her father timidly and took his hand; he allowed her to retain It for a moment, and then drew it away to turn a leaf of his book. There was no harbor here for this trembling soul. "I do not agree with this decision," said he. "When I was on the bench I should never have agreed to such law as this. My duty to my sovereign would not have permitted it." She asked him if it would trouble or disturb him If she sat by him for a while. She felt hurt, though she had no reason to feel so, when he looked up at her in surprise, and said very politely that he would be very glad. He had not been, he went on to say, as If delivering an opinion in court, often favored by the company of his family; and It was a pleasure to note an agreeable exception to the rule. And servants were not what they used to be. Ills man, Simon Boschkov, seemed to take the liberty of having things outside the house to which he was attending, even now. Mr. Kras- sln did not nsk much, but It seemed to him that, tied as he was to his chair, or at least confined to his room, he had the right to look upon such neglect as a hardship. "May I sit with you tonight?" asked Musla. "I will be very quiet. Perhaps I cnn rood to you." "It will be very kind of you," sale the old judge; "but few people read the law with understanding." Musla settled down on a low chair at his feet and read. Sometimes he would correct her pronunciation, am once or twice he gave her a little lee ture on the law. He did not know that it was a wise old Aztec coming back to lecture on the laws of the Montessuinas—obsolete! After he ha( grown petulant because he wanted Simon Boschkov to put him to bed Simon really came with muttered excuses, and Musla told him to sit out side while she waited In his place be side the door of her father's bedroom She sat and listened—listened for the Terror announced by a ring at the door; or by hoavy trampling in th passages; or by stealthy footfalls In the hall; or by the bursting in o the door of her father's suite by n man in a peasant's stnock. What was to become of her? Fo the first time In her life she faced peril. For the first time In her life she pondered deeply her place lu the world, and her family nnd its place. In a way, she knew about her father and her mother. She knew that on her mother's side they were a great family—the Vaturlins; and that her mother had married the man who was known in all the conversations of her great relatives merely as "tills Mr. Krnssln," who was only a member of the small nobility. It was difficult to think of the solid plain lady who was her mother, as a little girl; but yet she had the aid of a.pastel which hung oo the waUg.of ' tms very room : a picture or sirs. Kras- sln as a child In a low-necked, slrevc- less dress, with ll.eht brown Imir hanging down her back, and a narrow blue ribbon across her forehead, and with a small dog in lior hands and a slightly frightened look In her eyes- Mrs. Krnssln nt thirteen. Now, with the frightened look occasionally returning, she had always been an Inevitable sort of person, who married 'this Mr. Krnssln" because other suitors did not sue. nnd she wished to be emancipated. She had controlled her, her worldly affairs, nil her life, with n virile grasp, enormously proud of her wealth, her power, her rank, her family. A hard woman, hut with one absorbing passion, her love for llyn her son—a passion which Ilya seldom suspected; for her every soft Impulse was In the list of Mrs. Kras- sln's secrets. The only strong person In the family—nnd she hnd not resented It when Vllinsky hnd done thnt. Whnt, then was to become of her, Musin, in this earthquake of society? As the night wore on, these reflections and the passage of time left her cnlmer. He was not coming tonight. Her mother, searching for her, finally came nnd found her daughter alseep by her father's door. She gently stroked Musla's hnlr, remembering her as a pretty toddling bnbc, when she prattled her first words—nnd what those words were. And then she remembered how as she grew taller, they had grown apart as the barriers of character and custom separated the older woman from the budding one. A sudden access of affection rolled over Mrs. Krassin's soul n<s slio looked down nt the prrlty and f;icc, so innocent In slorp, nt the cmcoful form and the slim hnmls ns If In ntixlely In her lap—nnd slip thought (if Vilinsky. She stooped and gontly kissed Musla's forehead. The girl started up screaming. "Oo not awaken your father, Mnroosln," said Mrs. Krnssln, standing erect. •was frightened," whispered "I thought some one tclsspd "I—I Musla. me." "I mn the only one here,' 1 said her inolhor. "I must have boon drpninlns.' 1 said Musla. Mrs. Krnssln walked quietly Into her husband's room nnd looked dmvn upon him sleeping. Much gentler wns sho than usual, ns she led the girl to her room ami told her It wns time for her to he nsleep. "I nm nfrnld to be nlone," snlil Musla. Mrs. Krnssln lay on n chaise-longue by the bod nnd held the young girl's hand. Mushi slept with long quiver- Ing sighs. The sun nt last shone In at the window. Quietly she nrose, looked down nt the girl for n moment, and tiptoed from the room. (To be Continued Next Week).
