The 14 NATO members agree an attack on one is an attack on all Srid they have pledged themselves 10 go lo one another's aid. The SEATO agreement will probably be''.mifch weaker.

Whether such a trealy; which contains 'a certain indecision from the beginning, will be enough, to deter the Red Chinese remains to be , seen. Dulles ' seems have no do'ubt the United States would rush to the aid of ah ally who is not on the Asian continent. t Over the weekend he promised immediate American help to the Philippines if they should be attacked. But the Philippines, like Formosa and Japah, are part of the American defense line in the Pacific, Except for the fragment of South Korea, that line has not yet been extended into Asia. SEATO, nevertheless, will provide a framework for consultation among the eight nations sitting in Manila and some preparations for defense preparations 4 of NATO. It can be' the beginning for stronger agreements. Last spring,' when the Cdmrnu- nist-led Vie'tminh were smashing the French in Indochina, i Dulles tried to get united action in A&ia.

Anolhcr man he elbovved aside. And once ho reached Ihe bar he used his huge bulk lo shove a space clear for Dave Hehn. Helm sipped al the. whiskey and a warm glow spread through him. Lily Leeds stepped up on (he litllc' platform and began to sing.

A- man stopped whirling a chuck-a-luck cage and a faro dealer covered his box with his hands and sla'red at the 1 - layout before him. Al the bar, Dave Helm listened to Ihe sbrig and Ihe knuckles Of his hand whitened as his fingers closed about the glass in his fist and finally the glass collapsed and he lei Ihe broken pieces fall to Ihe floor.

"I liked 'your singing, ma'ani," replied Dave Helm. "I didn't like the song." ' Lily stared at him. "Someone else told me that." Her eyes fell to DaVe's hand. "You're bleeding!" Helm opened his hand and looked at the blood on nls pahn. "It's nothing, ma'am, just a lit.tle cut." Lily's eyes dropped to the floor, saw Ihe little chards of glass. Her eyes came up to meet Helm's once more. "Why don't you like tho song?" " 'Cause it ain't true, ma'am," Helm said, simply, "Sam Older was never no hero and Wes Tan- c'red wasn't any coward. The song is a lie, ma'am!" "You," said Lily Leeds, "are Dave Helm." He made an odd little" bow. "You know him," Lily said. "You talked to him today." "Wes Tancred, ma'am?

"Fugger wouldn't dare." • "He dared all right." Hong Kong Smith pointed a thick forefinger at the star on Kin- iaird's chest.

"Not John Bailey!" XXX A:half hour after Fugger's store opened in Ihe morning, Kinnaird came in. Laura was wailing on a Customer and he slopped by Ihe dopr unlil Laura had finished. He approached her Ihen. "You've heard?" She nodded. "What do you think" "It's not true—aboul Wes, I mean." "Wes," said Kinnaird, dully. 'You've known who he was all along Before you both came to Sage City" "Yes." "You agreed al Turkey Crossing to come here." "Oh, no. It wasn't like that. . . ." Laura looked at the sheriff in astonishment. "No, Lee. He told me >vho he was before he rode off, but that—that's all." Pain came into her eyes. "There was nothing between us, Lee." 'T suppose not," said Kinnaird. "Not if. you say so, Laura. Only , . ." He shook his head. "I liked him." He looked at her, thoughl- flilly, a litlle worry creasing his forehead. "You, Laura" "What do you mean" she aske.d, disconcerted. . '"You. liked him Or perhaps It's more than just liking him." "Oh, no!" ,,, quickness of her reply did mt relieve Kinnaird.

To Father, Wes Was just a man who took care of the horses. He told me after it, was all over who he was. . ." She winced and stopped. By morning Hong Kong Smilh was slupid from liquor. McCoj; Iried lo talk him into going to the hotel and get s 9 m e sleep, but Smith threw the bollle al him. Smilh dragged a r.hair lo Ihe door, pushed through the batwings and planted his chair on Ihe sidewalk direclly in fronl of Ihe door. HONG Kong Smilh focused his eyes on the wooden sign over the Boston Store and he raised his revolver. He fired. The bullel rhissed Ihe sign by aboul 10 feet. He depressed the revolver, took aim and fired again. Glass crashed as the bullel went through the window. He was aiming at the sign, when Gil Packai-'d dashed out of the store. He saw Hong Kong Smith across the street and threw himself lo Ihe sidewalk. Smilh fired a Ihird lime and again glass shal- tered, bul it.was the window of the Bon Ton Cafe this time. He aimed again, but the sign of the Boston Store seemed to elude him and he swung the gun around and brought it to bear upon the window of the bank. He gripped his right hand with his lefl and holding il reasonably steady, pulled Ihe Irigger. The bullel crached Ihrough Ihe window of Ihe bank. Lee Kinnaird, who* had' heard the shooting, while he was inside the sheriff's office, came out on the street. Swearing under hts bre a t h, he slarled across Ihe slreet. As he ' reached the side where Smith was, the Texan fired a -fifth time. The bullet missed Kinnaird by inches "and hit Ihe courthouse. Kinnaivd ran forward a n d grabbed the gun in Srnilh's hand. He Iried lo jerk Ihe gun from iSmilh's hand, but the big man held ori to it. "Lemme 'lone," he muttered. He jerked the gun free of Kinnaird's grip and swung the muz/le to poinl at' Kinnaird. The latter, not knowing that the gun was empty, • whipped'out his own revolver and springing forward, smashed the barrel along the side of Smith's head. Hong Kong Smith went over backward, rolling to the sidewalk. The blow thai Kinnaird slruck him was a hard one and Smilh, rolling over, groaned and lapsed into consciousness. Angrily Kinnaird s'tb'bped and jerked up Smith. He let the big man fall forward over his shoulder and grunting from the^, weight of him, carried him lo llie courthouse. Gorey looked up as Kinnair^l came in carrying Ihe huge Texan. "Who you gol Ihere" he demanded, Ihen recognized him. "Hong Kong Smilh! What're you doing with him" "I'm pulling him in jail." "You can'l! Nol him. . ." Kinnaird carried the big man into the cell behind the marshal's office and dumped him. "Now. don't you go making troo blc," Fugger complained. "I'vo had enough. I brough'l you here io town" "Let's Ret things ( straight.'.; Strh tomeyer said. "You' sent for me to do one particular job got rid of a mnn named Bailey. He's skipped town.

"They tell me you do loo." ro- lorled Slratcmeycr. "You want me to gun Ihe sheriff?" Fugger hesitated. "I'll let you know later." "You do Ihal. Mr. Filler. In :lhe meantime, would you mind sending over Ihe S'OOO you already owe me?" Slratemeyer smiled, a cold smile that sent a chill run ning through Fugger. He nodded and virtually ran oul of the silicon. On Ihe slrecl he encountered Manny Marpending and three or four Texas men. "Harpending." Fugger called. "If you're looking for your boss, he's in jail/' "Who-who had the nerve to do that?" "The sheriff. I asked him to turn Smith lose, but he said no Texas men could lake Smith away from him." "We'll see about that!" cried one of Ihe Texans. Inside of 20 minutes, a score or more of Texas men marched on the jail. Kinnaird, pale but deter mined met them at the door. "Don't do anything foolish, men!" "We're gonna take your jail apart if you don't turn old Hong Kong loose in 30 seconds," shouted one of the men. Kinnaird drew his .gun. He was ready to make an issue of it and then Marshal Gorey appealed in the doorway behind him.

He left Ihe courthouse lo ask Jacob Fugger. Bul Ihal worthy had al ready been informed of what had happened and was coming toward the courthouse. He encountered Kinnaird coming out. -'You can't arrest Hong Kong Smith," he cried. "Maybe I can't," said Kinnaird, grimly, "but I did. I had lo crack him over the head." Fugger cried out in horror.

COTTON STALK PLOW UP Pink Boll Worm regulations require that all cotton stalks in the quarantined area be destroyed m one of the following ways: 1. By pulling and burning all cotton stalks. 2. By grazing to the extent that contents of all bolls are consumed. 3. By either turning under or discing under all stalks completely. 4. By cutting all stalks with a rotary stalk cuter, followed by discing. REASON: Pink Boll Worms pass the winter in immature or otherwise damaged cotton bolls which are left unpicked in the fields, Many of these worms die if these bolls are destroyed by grazing or are turned under and thus caused to rot. Regulations are that "Inspectors will check fields as soon as possible after January 31 and should any field be found unsatisfactorily treated in one of these ways, they will report this fact to the piosecuting attorney, requesting that an action be brought against the tenant or owner, or both. In addition, the chief inspector may, to prevent possible spread of the Pink Boll Worm, cause the destruction of the cotton stalks in saicl untreated field, the expense thereof to be charged against the owner, cu$todipn, or occupant, as provided by law." We suggest that cotton growers proceed to destroy : the stalks in one of these ways as the very earliest opportnuity, otherwise wegther conditipn$ mqy make, •it hard to meet the January 31 dead line.'
