Adelaide smiled and a faraway
look came into her eyes. "I'm not
so sure,” she said, "that I want

"There’s only one kind," Mr.

a moment "Adelaide, you're think

"Ho!" Mr. Steers laughed heart

“Perhaps if he had a wife—who
loved him—she might be able to in

want to support her.”

scowled, studying his one and only

their daughter was bom, Adelaide
had been a constant source of worry.
He wished heartily that she would
marry some sensible young man
like Walt Mayo. Take a load off
his mind.
“I suppose," the elder Steers con
tinued, "you've heard about Walt’s
experience the other night Held
up by bandits, he was, while driving
from Kenwood to Moreton. They de
manded his billfold and he gave it
to them. It contained six dollars.
When Walt got home he lifted up
the seat of his car and took out a
second wallet containing $38, the
bulk of what he’d been carrying.
That man thinks of everything. He’s j
smart Saved himself a lot of
trouble for $8. Fred Cram wouldn't
have pulled a stunt like that."
"Fred Cram,” said Adelaide,
"wouldn’t have had $38 to conceal,
or six.”
Mr. Steers snorted and stomped
into the house. Left alone on the
veranda, Adelaide picked up the
daily newspaper. There was quite
a splash about the two bandits that
had during the past week been
terrorizing the vicinity, but Adelaide
couldn't concentrate. Her thoughts
kept wandering to Fred Cram. She
had promised to go out with him
that night.
‘ Fred arrived an hour later. He
came in an automobile that an
nounced its presence several blocks
away by virtue of loose joints.
"Why," asked Adelaide, climbing
aboard the front seat, "don’t you
jack up the windshield of this thing
and put an automobile under it?”
He grinned. “You know, darling,
if there's one reason why I’m glad
you’ve decided to marry me, it’s
because you’re very witty.”
"Marry you! Such a nerve! Why,
you couldn’t support a—a bantam
“There you go—always making
me laugh.”
Adelaide set her lips grimly.
They had bounced out of town and
were wheeling along the wooded
road that led to Moreton. There
was a moon and the air held a
fresh smell of growing things. It
occurred to Adelaide suddenly that
her father had been right. Fred
was an irresponsible sort of person.
Not the sort, in fact, that a real
sensible girl would want for a hus
band. Yet, darn it!—an idea sud
denly flashed into her head.
“Fred,” she said abruptly, "have
you heard about Walt Mayo’s ex
perience last night with the ban
"Heard it? You bet I have. Who
hasn’t?” He wagged his head ad
miringly. “Walt’s smart. That
bird thinks of everything."
"Fred, why don’t you try being
like Walt? I mean, being a little
more serious about life and—and
“Thing!!?" said Fred, He brought
the car to a sudden atop and turned
to her "Honey, you’re the only
thing ! could be serious about. And
believe me, I am,"
Adelaide shook her head. "I’m
afraid you're wasting your time. I
—1 couldn't risk It, Fred. A woman
wants security,"
Fred stared at her for so long
without speaking that Adelaide
thought he actually was getting seri
ous, and she became alarmed.
"Fred," she said, “I—I’d like to
make you a proposition. Suppose,
just to show me that you could pro
vide security, you save up a thou
sand dollars. I'll marry you when
you get a thousand." She swal
lowed. It hadn’t sounded as con
vincing or grand as she had ex
"Done!" said Fred unexpectedly.
And at that moment two men
stepped out of the bushes and lev
eled guns at them. At sight of the
men Adelaide uttered a little sup
pressed scream of terror.
“H’ist ’em!” said the biggest of
the pair, "an’ keep 'em h’isted."
Fred turned casually. "Hello,
boys,” he grinned. "Nice evening."
“Oho! A wise guy?” The big
man leered and winked at his com
panion. “Well, I guess we know
how to handle wise guys, eh, Tony?
I wonder if this jigger hides his
dough under the seat, too?”
“Honey,” said Fred, grinning at
Adelaide, “you’d better climb out
These boys want to look under the
Adelaide thought she caugni a
significant inflection to his tone.
She climbed out, on the opposite
side of the car from the bandits.
Fred opened the door on his side,
and then things began to happen.
She heard Fred yell: "Duck,
Adelaide!" And she ducked. While
ducked, she heard a gun go ofT, and
a shower of broken glass sprayed
over her. The windshield. Of all
the nervel Why, that windshield
was the only good part of the car!
Fred was still yelling. There
were sounds of a scuffle. A couple
of thuds. Another shot. Promiscu
ous grunting. Then Fred came
around the car.
"O.K., honey. The boys have had
Adelaide stood up. She saw the
men lying on the road and she be
gan to tremble. “Oh, Fred, are
you all right?"
"Well, yes. Mostly. Couple of
bruises. 1 wish I'd been smart,
though. Like Walt Walt would
have saved himself all this trouble
by some clever tricks.” He paused
suddenly and began to grin. “Heck.
I just thought. There’s a reward
for these birds. Five hundred
smacks each. Add ’em together,
girlie, and we have the required
Adelaide began to cry. "Fred—
oh, you didn't need a thousand. You
didn't need anything. And—and I’ll
bet Walt Mayo would have let
them steal my money, too. He would
have said it was smart, because he
saved most of his.”

picking her up and setting her back
inside the car. “Are you by any
chance trying to get acfoss the idea
that you accept my marriage pro
"You crazy galoot!” said Ade
laide, shamelessly stealing her fa

“Well, well,” said Fred. And he
took her in his arms and kissed her
very, very seriously.
Three Thousand Attend
Prep School for Pups
Michael von Motzeck of Chicago
is headmaster of a prep school tor
pups. His pupils are disobedient
dogs whose masters enroll them to
learn the ABCs of canine etiquette.
In his $40,000 halls of learning he
has graduated in the last 10 years
almost 3,000 Ph.D. pooches owned
by movie stars, tycoons and society
folks. As reward for passing final
tests every dog gets a beauty
treatment, with trimming and pluck
ing, in the dog beauty parlor run
by Mrs. Von Motzeck.
Courses last from a month to a
year. Month’s course of seven first
grade lessons, includes learning to
obey commands to “heel,” “sit,”
"lie down,” “come” when called,
and to “fetch.” A two months’
course includes seven more ad
vanced lessons, and so on up. Von
Motzeck once trained a dog to an
swer 150 commands perfectly.
After the first two weeks’ train
ing, masters must attend the school
three times to be put through the
paces with their pets. Most ad
vanced pup scholars learn to pose
in the show ring, jump high walls,
guard objects and people, and do
parlor tricks. A few Von Motzeck
tips for training your dog: Best
reward for a lesson is a pat on the
head; train your pup before meals;
never strike him; don’t prolong a
lesson more than 15 minutes.

WASHINGTON. — At several re
cent meetings of manufacturers
there has been serious discussion
about the prospects AFTER the
shooting stops. Just when that will
be, whether in 1943 or 1950, nobody
is sure, but there is no blinking
the fact that a tremendous prob
lem will be presented when peace
stops all this national defense spend
Most of the advice which the busi
ness men are getting from editors of
the publications identified with the
industries is to the effect that the
capitalistic system can survive, in
that post-war period, only if busi
ness starts right in full steam ahead.
"Never again," said a prominent
figure at one of these meetings,
(which was a meeting of execu

industry is prostrate, while there
are huge unsatisfied needs for goods

Must Rebuild
Devastated Lands
“Here is another statement made
recently," Mr. Henry told the gath
ering: " 'After the war ends we must
feed Europe and will get nothing for
doing it; we must supply most of
the capital to rebuild the devastated
countries, and will be lucky if we
get a return on the investment; we
must be ready for other radical un
dertakings, whether we wish to do
so or not All landmarks of how to
proceed to do business will be gone.*
"This was said by the senior part
ner of one of the great Wall Street
banking houses. He was address
ing a small group of labor leaders,
financiers, industrialists, manage
ment engineers and others.
"The position occupied by busi
ness in the revolutionary post-war
activities that are unescapable,"
Mr. Henry said in another part of
his talk, "depends entirely on the
vision and the courage displayed by
business. If business has any idea
that pre-war commercial policies
will return, then it will fail, when
the post-war period comes, to have
much of a hand in what is done.
"On the other hand, if business
can forget the past—remembering
that 'all the old landmarks will be
gone’—and will readjust its think
ing so that it may take the lead in
the huge undertakings that are in
the making, then business may ex
pect to be an important factor in
the post-war period."
"After having sat in with officials
speaking off-the-record for all of the
government agencies concerned
with post-war planning," said Mr.
Henry, "it has been possible to
make a summary of the vast pro
gram of government and other ac
tivities they have in mind. This
summary shows a total of about
five billions a year. It is likely to
be more!"
Aluminum Production
And Post War Period
One of the revolutions in Ameri
can industry almost certain to fol
low the end of the war is involved
in the enormous expansion of alumi
num production. This light, but
strong metal will be available in
quantities never before dreamed of,
and at prices on which engineers
have never thought of figuring.
Just before this country started
its “priorities” and began curbing
production of articles not required
for national defense there had been
a considerable building of “stream
liner” trains. Some of these were
built of aluminum, more of stain
less steel. The essential desire of
the engineers in each case, after
streamlining to cut down wind re
sistance, was to cut down the weight
so as to insure quicker starts and
hence lower running time.
But the point is that the engi
neers recently had turned to stain
less steel because aluminum was so
expensive. With aluminum selling
at a very low price, and no more
terrific pressure for turning out
large numbers of airplanes, alumi
num naturally will be pushing other
materials in commercial competi
tion. There will be more aluminum
than ordinary needs would provide
a demand for, and hence aluminum
MUST find additional markets.
At the low price which will then
be possible, it is unthinkable that
this will not provide a revolution in
our railway trains, and in doing so
provide a lot of the employment
which will be so vitally needed when
the war is over, and the demand
for more shells, tanks, planes and
guns suddenly ends.
