PATRICK, who lived some 500 years ago, was said to ^ •

have found no Christians In Ire-land, and to have left no heathen there when he died. Perhaps that statement Is exaggerated, but there a re statements that he founded 365 churches, which may be pret ty near the t ruth. Evidently he was an orator of marvellous power, and one who had those g iand gif ts of sympathy and understanding that touch the hearts of people.

Considering the amazing record of his achievements, and the charm of his personali ty it Is not sur-prising that the Ir ish race has over since revered and been fascinated by the memory he left behind. They remember him with enthusiasm on March 17.

In those old times when there •were no newspapers, when few people could read, and when social organization had made practically no progress, a gifted speaker could Influence masses of people.

Today our people's minds a re filled -arlth thoughts obtained f rom books, magaxfnes, and neTropapers, and everybody's opinion is poured into their ears. Thus people be-come hard boiled amid all this conflict of belief, and it Is not easy to change their ideas.

S t Patr ick evidently had a power of persuasiveneaa such as few men have ever equalled. Few If any such cases can be found where one man has overturned the beliefs of a nation.

American life needs men of such power and eloquence, tha t its peo-ple can be converted to higher ideals, to the abolition of abuses, and to wise and tolerant views. If St. Patr ick were here today, he would tell people to devote them-selves with the utmost energy to the causes of good citizenship. Also as the f irs t s tep In that direction, to make everything subordinate to the Idea of victory over the dic-tators who have brought dreadful calamities on the human race.

Bond Sales Here Total $88,275

The Lowell post office reports February defense savings bonds sales as follows: Thirty-seven $25 bonds, three $50 bonds, nine $100 bonds, one $500 bond and one $1,000 bond making a total of $3,475. A total of $1,115 in defense savings s tamps were also sold during Feb-ruary.

At the State Savings bank bonds sold during February were as fol-lows: Fif ty $25 bonds, seventeen $50 bonds, forty-six $100 bonds, twelve $500 bonds for a total of $12,700.

The above figures added to bonds previously reported make a total of $88,275 In defense bonds bought In Lowell u t to March 1.

How to Advertise

There are some business people who say they believe thoroughly in the advantages of advertising, but they rarely make use of it, since they claim they don't know how to write a good advertisem*nt.

These people know the reasons why the articles they offer are good bargains and well worth the monev asked for them. If they will de-scribe the goods briefly and tell the price, they have the materials they need for an effective ad. What the public wants to know is what they have to sell and the reasons why they should buy. The man who

The appointment of Gumser ¥en-larges the board to four members, it was announced by Donovan Wheeler, chief clerk. The appoint-ment came without solicitation on Mr. Gumser 's pa r t and he serves without pay.—He will begin his dutlee next Tuesday.

Farmers to Vote On Wheat Quotas

May 2, 1942, is the da te set by Secretary of Agriculture, Claude R. Wickard, for the farmers through-out the nation to vote on wheat market ing quotas, according to John McCabe. President of the Kent County Triple-A.

Wheat marketing quotas will aid in keeping wheat that Is not needed, off the marke t by allowing the f a rmers the privilege of wheat loans. This plan is flexible and allows for the release of the stored wheat when It Is needed.

A limited market among all farm-ers, guaranteeing each the privi-lege of selling at fa i r prices an equitable amount of wheat that he produces, is a part of the wheat market ing quota plan.

ONE NEEDS to tells us that we are a very wasteful coun-

try. In Lowell ^*e admit it but are willing to help put a stop to it if by eo doing we will assist in putting an end to this war. Perhaps it is because America has always had such an abundance of every-thing that we have become a na-tion to forget a shortage in our needs. By advertising products and offering attractive prices Ameri-cans have been sold on the idea of purchasing new rather than ue-ing tip the old. It might have been alright then, but not today. Of course we all know it is necessary to sacrifice luxuries during a war and few who haven't already tasted of the denial, but even at this there is no such acute shortage as has been facing the other nations, especially the Axis powers, who for a long lime past have been sacri-ficing as they built up their ma-chine for the present conflict. They have been even cutting down on the necessities in order to be ready to strike. We are today having far more in the way of food and ma-terials than other countries have been having for years. But now we consider what we can get along without, pulling out of trunks in the attic certain cast-offs that might be fixed, bringing out of the «hed and garage discarded Items that might come In handy again. But dally we must bear In mind that there are many things which •we thoughtlessly waste that are vital in defense, to squander them will prolong the war. We can help by carrying our packages than to have them delivered since this saves gasoline and rubber for truckc. Save old scrap Iron and re-member the vast amount we shipped to Japan and what she has done with It! Don't burn paper and cardboard i since you already know of its Importance. Tell your mer-chant to save his paper bags If you can carry the article without, or not have a parcel wrapped If neces-sary even though It has leen customary. Save all collapsable tubes—your druggist will see that they reach the right authorities— for converting Into new tin.

Ten years ago Northam, then 18. wanted a membership in thc Chi-cago Adventurers' club. He was told he lacked the needed qualifications. He determined to acquirc them.

With a capital of $10, he left Chi-cago for Boston as an attendant on a stock train. In the same capacity he sailed from Boston for Danzig, on n boat carrying steers from Chica-go. Leaving the boat at Danzig, he worked his way through much of Russia, including the Ukraine, Mos-cow, Leningrad, and Into Finland; south through the Baltic states and Poland, through Germany, Den-mark. Holland. Belgium, France and Spain—working at whatever he could find to do for a day, a week or a month.

From Spain he crusscd into Af-rica. then back from Egypt to Italy, Grecce, Turkey, Syria, Irak and Arabia. At Port Said he got a Job on a boat that brought him back to New York, and then on another boat that took him through Panama to San Francisco and on around the world, with stops in Japan, China, Indo-Chinu, Siam and India.

Clinton County Republican News:

Tom Allen Is a Butte, Mon-tana, lawyer. He spent par t of this year In England. While there he Investigated many condltlona One day there was a bombing raid by German planes. He hurried to the scene. He saw people as they started to hunt among the rubble of what had been their homes. There came running a man—e de-fense worker. His home was blast-ed. He called to his wife. "She waa a t church," a neighbor said. No, she would have been home when this happened. Tom Allen watched this man uncover and carry out the mangled remains of his wife. A little later came the bodies of an 18-year-old son, then a 16-year-old daughter and last, the body of his 10-yoar-old daughter. Tom Allen could stand no more. He went on. Later he came back that way. The defense worker was still poking about the ruins, waiting for some-one to come and care for the bodies. But In the hour Tom Allen had been away from that scene this man had penciled a crude sign on a fragment of cardboard and propped It up among the brick and mortar. I t read, "Thank God for another day—a day nearer vic-tory." Tom Allen turned to we who were listening to this story and said, "How are you going to let people like that down?"

manners than you? The answer is yes, If you are an average driver of a passenger car.

Anyone who spends much time on the road will tell you that the truck driver is the most consistent-ly decent driver a person meets oa the road. He will slow down to let you pass, even pull off the road to let a long line of faster moving traf fic get by before continuing on his way. I can't remember the last time a trucker failed to dim his lights when approaching at night.

Don't you think It's time that we passenger car drivers follow the steps of the truck drivers and use a little courtesy on the road?

Courtesy prevents accidents!

IMPERIALISM has dominated ev-ery peace conference following an international war. Thc first thought of thc victors has been "what can we get—what territory, what re-sources, what markets—that will strengthen us and weaken our de-feated opponents?"

That was true of the peace con ference following World War I. The humanitarian ideas President Wil-son took to Paris, with the expecta-tion of writing a peace treaty that would end wars, went glimmering when he sat across the table from Lloyd George and Clemenceau

They had been willing to listen to humanitarian Ideas as propagan-da to undermine the morale of the enemy people, but not when the en-emy had been licked.

As a gesture to President Wil-son, they consented to taking enemy territory under mandates, instead of direct annexation, with the provi-sion that such territory was to bi administered for the benefit of the mandated people and was not to be fortified.

Japan received the mandate ovei some 700 Pacific islands under such conditions, but these Islands turn up now as Jap air and naval bases.

President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill have proposed a basis on which to fix the terms ol peace when this war is over. Their proposals sound good now, Just as President Wilson's 14 ooints sounded good in 1917-18. But what will the proposals be when the war is over and the enemy is licked?

It is a fairly safe bet that Lore Vengeance and Lord Imperialism will again dominate the peace con-ference. If so. both the loser and thc winner will eventually pay. CURRENT CROP OF WEATHER PROPHETS

Such weather condi-tions are perfectly all right with peo-ple of the cities, until they go to buy food, when they complain about prices. It is fine to enjoy the sun-shine, but all sunshine and no rain means poor crops and high living costs. The farmer prays for an ade-quate mixture of snow, rain and sunshine

A Letter to Lowell (Continued from first page)

In the morning our visa and sev-eral officials arrive. There is much shaking of hands, flashing of teeth. Wc do not bother with our appear-ance—down the gangplank—on to the sea cow!

We race up the main s t ree t Wide, unpaved; it is lined with huge frame buildings which house an Infinite variety of establishments. The houses are built on piles, with only a latticework walling the first floor. We pass an Americanized soda fountain. We are not tempted. We have a mission. We will stare at the blasted sea cow or die.

Someone tells us to take a Re-gent Street bus out direct to the Gardens. We wait on a corner. Eventually a normal-sized car creeps near, carrying a small bus body haphazard^- on its back. Sev-eral doors hang idly open, banging. All the busses have names; this one U "Tyrone Power". The driver sticks his head out of the nearest door: "Come in!"

We start off, honking at "Greta Garbo" and "Bob Hope" as we pass. We reach the Botanical Gar-dens—one hundred fif ty acres of tropical flora nnd fauna; yellow, blue, and red birds, water lilies with leaves five feet In diameter, orchids and a green, mysterious pool.

Several little black boys pounce on u a We w a n t to see the sea cow? They will ar range every-thing. One whistles shrilly, another splashes the water's edge with h is hand, the third tears up a hand-ful of grass.

The sea cow at last! Not one, but twenty—swimming placidly, their great moss-covered backs rippling the surface. Most of thom are enormous, ten feet long with flip-pers Instead of legs and a graat fan-like tall. They crawl part way up the bank, wrinkle their snouts, mangle the grass between hardened gums. Then, relaxing, they He back

• peacefully chewing their cuds like any Michigan Holsteln.

They are almost unbelievable. W e have seen something rare, a mamalhan relic of bygone ages.

Changing the subject. I recall a very pointed question asked by Frank Coons a t a meeting of the Rotary Club in Lowell Jas t October.

' He wanted me to notice what per-centage of the local merchants a-long our route advertiaed in the local paper. As far as the Carib-bean, British and Dutch Guiana a rc concerned, I can state without res-ervation, tha t every merchant along #very Main Street advernses faith-fully. The power of the printed word is something new to them. They have not grown accustomed to it as yet—and thus they appreciate what a local newspaper can do. Everybody—everybody r e a d s a local newspaper—and the market is even more interostod in what a local merchant has to offer be-cause he is a person, not merely a name above a store window.

Week's Best Recipe

Mallow Candy: Take 6 table-spoons melted butter, 1 package marshmallows (80), 1 package puf-fed rice or rice crlsples. Pu t melted butter In double boiler, add marsh-mallows. When melted In creamy mix stir In the crlsples. W^hen thor-oughly mixed together turn out on buttered shallow pan and spread about an Inch thick. Keep In cool place and cut off as candy squares whenever desired. You can use this candy as a dessert with a topping of a rich chocolate sauce.

Clean Before Using

Since your hair Is no cleaner than your brush and comb It Is neces-sary that both be kept In good con-dition. Every time your hah Is shampooed then clean the brush and comb. Put them In a basin of lukewarm water and add about 3 tablespoons of household ammonia. Rinse thoroughly, shake off excess water and hang out to dry. Do not dry near heat and never stand brushes on their bristles to dry.

A Suggestion or Two

There are usually one or two rattling windows around each home and If you take an or Mnary clothes-pin and split It In two you will have two good wooden wedges for the windows that annoy you. . . . Use your left-over wallpaper for cover-ing old waste baskets, utility boxes and containers for drawers, also to naste Inside of closets a s a colorful lining.

For Lunch

Make the usual sandwich of cheese. Jam, pran'it butter or deviled ham. Dip each sandwich Into a mixture of one egg, one cup milk and % teaspoon salt. F ry the sandwiches In butter until bread Is golden brown. Serve hot for a lunch.

Bath Mitt

Make yourself a bath mitt to save having talcum powder all over the bathroom floor. Make a mitt with one-half rubberized silk and the bottom half of terry cloth. In-sert the can's opening In the com-partment of the mitt which slips on the hand. Powder sifts through the terry cloth side as you pass it over the body.

Sam had just finished thc evening chores when Otis Green jerked his antiquated automobile to a stop at the front gate.

"Havin' some men fer breakfast and need a couple more rabbits. Got any? Can pay you 25 cents for these."

"Nope. Bigger deal this time." I beamed Otis. ' 1 come to buy this I one sixty of yours. Got some friends | here as witnesses, so we can close | the deal right now."

learned how to drive when she was 43, and who never has been east of the Mississippi in her own coun-try. has become quite a booster for t i^ highway. The idea of using her trip to advertise the highway was first put to her by United States Ambassador Claude G. Bowers in Chile. Since that time she has spoken in public and over thc radio, written for newspapers, and, in gen-eral. become one of the hemispheric road*s leading promoters.

Highway Practical. "Current opinion maligns the

highway." she says with some h»3t "The genera! impression is that it is very difficult. We are finding that it is not difficult but very prac-tical. especially if you stick to the highway."

Mrs. Henley can proudly claim that she knows South America bet-ter than most South Americans do. She has "rounded the Horn" by automobile, taking a side trip to the world's southernmost settle-ment of Aushuaia, Argentina, far below the Straits of Magellan. She has crossed the 15,SD5-foot summit of the world's highest highway near Ticlio, Peru, on the way to Lima. She has motored through the fiow-ering Brazilian tropics, across the rolling cattle plains of Uruguay, through the heart of the Chilean lake country, and over the wild Bo-livian Andes.**

No Fl*t Tires.

So far. Mrs. Henley estimates that her 1940 American station wagon has covcred about 20.000 miles of South American roads. Ir all that distance she has had no punctured tires, although she had two punctures driving from her home in Glendale to New Orleans where she boarded a chip for Rio. She has had no motor trouble and j! no accidents. She had a new set of j larger tires put on her car to raise | it higher off the road, and had Ihr brakes relined twice.

Since Santiago she has done a l l . the driving. Thc only time her ' nerves fail her is when she reaches a large city. She then moves over and lets Hector Burr, her traveling f companion, take the wheel.

She said the trip so far has been f neither unduly expensive, nor dan fcrous. Gasoline, in most places, f costs no more than in the United States; frequently it was cheaper. Hotel aOcommodation and garage space expenses proved extremely reasonable.

"Yore plum crazy, Sam." Green shouted in a squeaky voice.

"You can have 'er fer my price er let 'er go. Ain't carin* which."

Green knew Thorp would not come down, so he gave him sixty dollars an acre, paying the purchase price in new shiny bills; Sam was afraid of checks.

"We're leavin* fer Kentucky to-morrow, mammy," said Sam, as he folded the bills with precision.

Green glanced at the other men and winked.

"Fer oncc- 1 got you, Sam. Lucky such s Sch as ysu is leavin* this country. I saw oil stain on your shoes and overalls yesterday So I came up last night and went over your place with my fifshlight I found oil bubblin* out at three places whole state for fifty years," said1-Green

"Good geologist awright Yuh found all three spots where there's oil, jist three of *em."

"How the hell you know how much oil's on your place? You ain't no geologist" snorted Green.

"Wal, Mr. Green, when I couldn't find thet oil you told me was on my land when you sold it to me, I went over to the Cat Creek Oil Field, got five gallons of crude oil, and made jist three wells for spee'lation. You found all three uv 'em," came the level voice at the rabbit man. "But a deal's a deal," be went on, a s he felt the dry oil stains on his overalls. "Shore ruins clothes to make spee'lative oil wells, but I reckon hit 's worth the trouble."

CHICAGO.—Unknown to the av-erage farmer 10 years ago, hybrid corn was planted on 25.000,000 acres of mldwestem farm land last year, according to estimates of the Mid-dle West Soil Improvement Com-mittee.

"While Its popularity has been due to heavy yielding qualities, hy-brid corn Is no substitute for soil fertility," says a statement of the Committee, "and It Is usually a heavier drain on any soil than the older, common varieties.

"Hybrid corn outyields open-pol-Unated varieties from 10 to 30 per cent because it has the ability to draw more nitrogen, phosphorus and potash out of the soli. Many mld-westem soils, however, after gen-erations of cropping cannot supply more fertility than an average crop of open-pollinated corn can use. Un-less thc fertility level is raised on such soils by the application of plen-ty of plant food, hybrid com offers little advantage in yield over open-pollinated.

"In their eagerness to increaae yields, com growers too frequently lose sight of the necessity for an adequate plant-food supply to sup-port such yields.

"If hybrid is to retain Its popu-larity, more and more attention will have to be paid to the fertility of the soil on which it is grown. That means making certain that the soil's resources of nitrogen, phos-phorus and potash are replenished by the- use of commercial ferti-lizers. By such methods the new era of producing more abundant com crops on a smaller acreage can be made to serve the nation's needs to a greater degree."

THE SXORV SO FAR: Joan Lelnnd accepts a secretarial position In a nluht club and falls in love with the handiomr proprietor, Karl Miller. Her sister, Syb-il. snspecU Karl's motives and Is not mollified when he also (els her a new poiltlon. Paul Sherman, club manaRer, warns Joan about Karl but she defends him to both Paul and Sybil. Delivering a mysterious messaee (or Karl to a tramp steamer, she finds Paul secretly tollowinK her. He rescues her trom Eric Strom, Karl's partner, when Eric tries to klai her. Karl shoots and kills Eric in Joan's presence, and threatens to blame hsr U she calls the police. Re admits he Is German, and part of a spy rlnj. To her surprise, Paul backs him up. At her home that night, Paul enters through the window and reveals himself as Panl O'MaUey of the FBI. Knowing her finger-prints were on the gun Karl made her pick up, he had to side with him tempo-rarily, be explained, as this work was more important than their ll?es. Joan Is sickened by the revelaUon that Karl also has a wife in Germany. Sybil disappears.

Now conUnne with the story.


One-thirty and still Sybil had not come home. What had she meant by that note saying "something ter-rible had happened?"

"She never trusted Karl." Joan spoke fearfully.

Paul was lookipg out of thc win-dow. "He's not, there now. What-ever happeaed to Sybil had nothing to do with Karl personally. He hasn't been nut of sight nil eve-ning. Of course there are plenty of others working with him."

"Karl said that everyone at Uie Club Elite was Involved. Is that t rue?"

"I 'm afraid so Karl is too clever to take any chances."

"But whet docs he actually do?" Paul thrust his hands Into his

pockets and stared at Uie fire. "I 'm not sure of all his acUvities and I have no proof, but he Is suspected of transferring plans of bombing planes and muniUon plants to other foreign agents. He's working with someone else, of course."

"Remember that freighter Karl took m e to and later sent me to with a package?"

"Maybe establishing refueling bases for submarines."

"Not here!" Joan cried. "No. Probably in the South At-

lantic. I don't know yet." Joan sighed. "I always wanted

adventure but I certainly didn't ex-pect it to take this form."

"I 'm sorry you got in so deep." Paul told her very seriously.

"I t ' s my own fault You tried to warn me, so did Sybil . . . "

Their eyes me t Two o'clock and Sybil was still out.

" I 'm going." Paul said, rising, "and you'd better get some sleep I'll be by for you at one-Uiirty. Karl 's orders, you know." He sniiled grimly. "It 's fortunate for boih of us."

"I 'm not going to bed until Syb comes," Joan insisted.

"Oh, yes you are! You need your sleep. Tomorrow is going to be a tough day. You've got to be click-ing on all cylinders. Both our lives are at stake. You can't afford to mak^ a slip. If Karl ever finds out, we'll end up just like Eric."

"Don't say that! Oh Paul, I 've been such a fool I loved him . .

He patted her thoulder. "We all make mistakes," he said comfort-ingly.

When he had gone she tried to obey his instructions. She went to bed and tried to sleep. But the grandfather's clock had chimed three, then three-thirty before she slept, a fitful doze. It was a little after six when she awoke.

"Sybil!" she called hysterically, but there was no reply. Her sister's bed was untouched.

Joan got up, shivering In the cold of the December morning. She went into the kitchcn and made a pot of coffec. What had happened to Sybil?"

"I 've got to keep my head," she thought desperately, pouricg the coffee with shaking hands. "But I feel so helpless."

At one-thirty Paul arrived and took Joan to the Club Elite.

"Now remember," he said as he parked the car, "we're not friends. Ignore me. And watch your step."

"I ' l l do my best," Joan said grim-iy-

But it was not easy to walk into this ofllce, to see Karl sitting at his desk wiUi Ute latuiliar icu car-nation in his buttonhole, the same smile that had one*; endeared him to her. With shaking hands she re-moved her hat and coat and sat down at her desk.

"Paul tells me you have decided to be sensible," Kail commented.

"What else can I do?" She paused for a moment then bi'rst out "What have you done to my sister?"

Karl regarded her with apparent surprise. "Sister? What do you mean?"

"She didn't come home all n igh t " Karl Miller shrugged and smiled.

"What makes you think I had any-thing to do with It? I have no Inter-est in your sister."

"You know what I mean . . "Let us get on with our work."

Karl said. Joan managed to con-trol her resentment apd obeyed. •

The afternoon finally dragged to a conclusion. At six Paul Sherman appeared and he and Karl had a short conversation in German, after which Karl lef t

" I 'm taking you to dinner," Paul said. "Karl 's orders."

Without a word Joan got her coat and they lett Uie club.

Safe In a small restaurant she asked. "Whal about Sybil? Have you heard anything?"

"Not a word And I can't ask Karl. It's too much of a chance."

"But we have to do something," Joan pleaded.


and soe "Wait until tomomAv what happens."

Paul smiled primly. "It amuses mc the way Karl trusts mo. Even tho most clevor criminals make one fatal mistake. This is his."

"You really think he trusts you now?"

"Yes. And since he does, he is sure to reveal something."

"And all this trouble started be cause I wouldn't take Sybil's ad vice."

As Joan picked up her purse she remembered tho ring Karl had giv en her. It was in its velvet box in her purse where she had placed it this morning. She had completely forgotten to return i t Karl did not seem to care particularly whether she did or not.

"It's probably stolen anyway," Jdan thought bitterly as Paul took her back to tho club.

Joan laid Ihe dazzling emerald be-fore Karl without speaking and Karl put it in his pocket as if it had been a slip of paper.

Joan wanted to scream, to pour out her anger. But she suspected that it would only amuse him.

Karl actually seemed to think that she would return to their former re-lationship. "You loved me yester-day," he reminded her. "WHiat is so different?"

"You can force me to work for you—that's all!" Joan told him, her green eyes blazing. Had she ever loved this cruel, conceited man?

An hour later Paul Sherman ap-peared again and said something to Karl In his own language. Joan noticed that Paul did not look at her, but she felt a personal importance in those guttural v/ords even though she could not understand them.

Karl smiled as he turned to her but there was warning in his eyes.

"There are two officers bete to soe you, Joan. I believe they have news of your sister."

• • •

"The police!" In an instant Joan was on her feet.

"Something about Sybil," Karl re-peated calmly, but his eyes warned her not to make a false move.

Josp risked a glance at Paul. It seemed to her that he shook Ijis head ever so slightly. He was try-ing to tell her not to take any chances.

"All r i g h t " Karl snapped. "Show them in."

Paul disappeared. When the door opened as he left,

Joan could hear the music and laughter from Uie front of the club. Christmas gayety! How could these people laugh and be merry? How could they be so unaware of the drama that went on in that back office?

"Watch your step," Karl advised. "If you say anything, you will be the loser, I wam you. I will not hesitate to use all the cards I hold. Shall we put it that way?"

Her green eyes filled with tears. "Don't worry! Sybil is all I 'm think-ing about now."

Paul returned with two officers. "Sorry to bother you, Mr. Miller." "Not at all," Karl replied gra-

ciously. "Tell me," Joan cried, "is it some-

thing about my sister? What's hap-pened to her?"

"We're not sure it's your sister. Miss Leland. We want you to come down to headquarters and identify the clothes."

"Clothes? You mean . . . oh, no!" Her voice rose to a scream.

'Take it easy now." the officer advised. "We're not sure."

"Tell me." Joan begged. "Where did you find them?"

"A woman's garments were found on the Golden Gate Bridge—a coat shoes and a handbag with a letter adr -essed to year sister. Apparent-ly it was suicjde."

"Suicide? Sybil wouldrrever do a thing like that!"

"Maybe she didn ' t Maybe she Just wants you to think so. But we called up her employer, Mrs. Murdoch and she said she hadn't shown up for work."

Joan's eyes were upon Karl. "You had something to do with this." her eyes accused.

For one moment she was templed to pour out the whole story of the spy ring, to scream her accusations, but Paul was at her side now. gresp-iug aci firmly by Uie nun. aitu the pressure told her io be sUent

Karl was saying. "I 'm terribly sorry. Joan. You may go with the officers. Paiil will go with you and see that you get home safely."

Thanks!" Joan flung the word Into his expressionless face.

All the way to headquarters Joan prayed that all this might be a mis-take—that those clothes found on the Golden Gate Bridge were not SybU's. I t could not be SybU! Her sister had said she would "be back soon." Was that indicaUve of sui-cide? But when she was faced with the coa t shoes and handbag she knew there was no mistake.

"Yes. These are my sister's," she told them tonelessly.

There was a sympathetic silence as an officer removed the clothes and letter.

"Do you know of any reason why your sister should have done this?"

"No." Joan wanted to cry but the tears would not come. great pain weUed up inside her. Sybil! SybU was all she had In the world! She felt the floor swaying beneath her. She clung to the table.

"Poor kid!" Paul was saying as he helped her into a chair. Some-one else brought a glass of water.

"It's almost Impossible to recov-er a body from that part of the bay," one of the men was saying. "Of course wc'U do aU we can but the tide is so strong . . . "

"Stop it!" Joan screamed. "I tell you my sister didn't kill herself! I know she didn't!" She wss speak-ing incoherently now.

Loland is hysterical It 's only nat-ural. This has been a terrible shock, of course. Probobly a good night's sleep wiU hx her up. Why not let me take her home? She's had enough for one night."

"Sure," the officer said sympa-UietlcaUy. "Go ahead."

Paul led the trembling figure down the cold marble hall and Into Uie street. Joan could not have stood without his support.

"Why didn't you let me tell Uiem?'v She asked over and over. "Paul, you know Karl had some-thing to do with this."

"Wc can't prove It," he reminded her kindly. "Our only chance to convict Karl of this, or anything elsp, is to be seemingly unsuspi-cious."

They were driving home now, through the wet streets of San Fron-cisco. V/rcaths shone from the win-dows of homes and apartments. Small Christmas trees sparkled. Next week—Christmas.

"Oh. Paul I can't stand It!" "Listen, honey," he said tenderly,

"I don't think Sybil committed sui-cide."

"Then you think Karl is behind It?"

"I wouldn't be surprised." "But where is Sybil? Has he . . . ? " "As a matter of fact ," Paul said

thoughtfully. "I think Syoil is alive. Now this is pure theory, understand, but I think Karl is trying to pui a scare into you. He's probably tak-en Sybil away somewhere, but 1 don't think he's really harmed her. He doesn't want to take that much of a chance. He wants her as a hostage."

"You mean," Joan said slowly, "that Karl will someday tell me that SybU is aUve and threaten her life if I don't do as he asks?"

"That's the way I have it figured." "As long as Sybil is alive, that's

nU that matters. Surely we can find out if we go on with Karl and he isn't suspicious."

"Good g i r l " Paul approved as they drove up before her apartment. '*'11 we work together, I think we can be^t Karl MiUcr at his own game. He's bound to make a slip and when he does we'll have all the evidence, not only about Sybil but his other acUvities. You'U sUck it ou t Joan?"

Sheep to Sing Barber Ballads

The Angels of His Presence

ONE of the hupeful and en-couraging signs of Ihe times is a reaching out on the par t

of an increasing number of people to a power beyond the human, in which they may iind a refuge, guide, protector, and friend. This human yearning for something dependable on which to lean in trying times, for something stable in the midst of conrusion, for that which will replace dismay and despair with confldence and hope, is understandable and reasonable. Further , it can be productive of results. Nearly two thousand years ago Jesus said (Matthew 7:7), "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall bo opened unto you." These promises still s tand. All Ibrough the years those who have sought Go.f sincerely and humbly have found Him close at hand. . . .

Mary Baker Eddy In "Science and Health with Key to the Scrip-tures" (page 581) defines "angels" as follows: "God's thoughts pass-ing to man; spiritual intuiUons, pure and perfect ; the inspiration of goodness, purity, and immortal-ity, counteracting all evil, sensu-ality, and mortality." That this deflnition is in accord with the Scriptural meaning of the word is evidenced by many incidenli of divine guidance and protection re-lated in the Bible. . . .

Throughout the Old and the New Testament there are many references to angels. These heav-enly messengers, "spiritual intui-tions," brought comfort, guidance, explicit commands, and, when heeded and obeyed, never failed to bless. Jacob experienced a bit-ter struggle with a false sense of selfhood, of life as material, until an angel appeared to him. And not until he thoroughly under-stood the message and received God's blessing, would he let the angel go. Then he was trans-formed. . . .

In the twelf th chapter of the Acts of the Apostles, we read of the angel that delivered Peter when he was cast into prison, bound in chains. Because he lis-tened and obeyed the angelic mes-sage, Peter found himself un-bound and free. Angels ministered to Jesus a f te r bis vigil in the wil-d o r n e s s , — p u r e a n d perfect thoughts f rom God, which came to our great Way-shower a t the

outset of his wonderful career of service to mankind.

Today, as then, God, divine Love, reveals Himself to every honest seeker for Truth. To all who humbly and earnestly look to God for help, thus acknowledg-ing His power, angels, "God's thoughts passing to man," bring Ihe needed inspiration, direction, comfort , love, and protection. There is no situation too compli-cated, no sin too deep, no disease too hopeless, no burden too great, to be reached and healed by God, divine Mind. Even if the call for help is faint and hesitant. Love is always present, and he who turns to God finds Him near. The Father-Mother God is constantly blessing man. His own Idea, and providing for his every need. But we must place ourselves in the position to receive the blessing. We cannot receive it by denying God's presence and power^ but In reaching out to Him, no matter how hesitatingly, we put our-scIVeJ" '.vhere w e can receive and utilize the good that is always available. Then, encouraged and strengthened, we may Increase our understanding of God until we know Him as ever-present Life and Love, and. begin to ap-preciate the perfection of His cre-ation, including man in His image and likeness.

Many of those who now on land, in the air, or on the sea, are doing their par t in preserving the free-dom and liberty so dear to all right-minded men, are proving re-peatedly that protection, sure guidance, and safety are assured when thought Is turned to God, and His righteous government of His own creation acknowledged. So did a similar turning to God deliver the Israelites many times in Biblical days.

The angels of His presence must be sought and made wel-come. Then, in their radiant light, evil of every kind fades and dis-appears. When we strive to un-derstand the heavenly message, as did Jacob, and drink deep of spir-itual inspiration, as did Jesus, there will come to us "the inspira-tion of goodness, purity, and im-mortality, counteracting all evil, sensuality, and mortality." Thus ?8 God's love for H?s beloved child made known. . . .

A million sheep In Michigan are pructiclng barber ballad bleating as flockmastcrs prepare to clip be-tween. seven and eight million poundr of wool from the backs of the animals.

Which leads to puzzling among Michigan farmers as to what wool actually is worth now that the fed-eral government has set up celling prices on the valuable crop.

An explanation prepared by the Michigan State College extensloni ocrvlce and reprcsentatlvea of the Michigan Cooperative Wool Mar-keting association Indicates the meaning of the celling price wham It concerns the high quality Mich-igan wool.

Much of Michigan wool Is c'assed as three-eighths staple or one-quar-ter staple. Colling prices on a clean-ed basis at Bostoni are $1.04 and 96 cents a pound, respectively, on those grades. But that Is af ter the wool has been taken "out pf the grease." Michigan wool on thc farm this spring will be worth a top price of approximately 47 cents a pound If a flock owner cani obtain the top or celling price.

According, to Paul Flnnegan, Lansing, manager of the Michigan wool cooperative, farmers with wool to sell ought to have samples graded and appraised before sfcll-Ing. Variations In grade and shrink-age make It difficult for the aver-age farmer to estimate actual value of the wool clip from his sheep.

To aid farmers In getting samples graded and appraised, the coopera-tive Is maintaining such services In Lansing and Jackson and contem-plates establishing another service center in a more northern location.

Difficulty in. obtaining Imports appears to Indicate future wool prices will not recede. Consumption of wool In 1941 has been estimated at 900 million pounds, of which only 50 per cent came from wool clipped from sheep In the United States.
