l /. ! / ,:.., &lt;: Page Ten | Night for the Morrow By aOBZRT D. LUSK - ...CHAPTER KXIV " My. grandfather lay back on his pillows. He was exhausted after his ]ong reading aloud. In a mo- ment I.jnn Rhodes and his wife arose to leave. "We have taken too much of your time and strength already," Rhodes said; "'but before we go, could you tell us the message that President Wilson gave you that night?" "'He wrote," the old man de- clared, his eyes still closed, "that a nation founded on the principle that all men were created equal could not deny the brotherhood of man except it deny its own self He said that from such a denial would come disillusionment and confusion. The very fiber of national purpose would be endan- gered, the inner strength of the nation sapped." There was a long pause. 'There might come a time again, he said, when the United States could recover iLs soul, al- though the price would be great in blood and wealth. But that price would have to be paid, if the nation were to continue. He said that if the nation ceased to be the home of the brave, in the full meaning of the world, it would not long remain the land of the free." Old Jan's voice was nov: just a whisper, barely audible. "A nation, like a man." he con-! tinued, reaching for my hand, "has a soul. The soul of my America, o2 our .America, is great. It was conceived in the bloody labor of revolution; it was baptized in a mighty fire to set men free. Men were to be free, not only here but throughout the world. America, the soul of America, must remain great." One night, about a week later, Old Jan died quietly in his sleep. The funeral was simple. Old Jan would have wanted it that way. There weren't many in attendance. Old Jan wouldn't have been sur- prised at that. Judge McNamara was there, of course. He cried, too, Old Jan would have guffawed out loud. but been pleased inwardly. After the funeral, I went over to McNamara's. I told the Judge the farm would have to get along without me for a while, that I had ome different kind of "ploubhing" Copyright,  NZA i-le. cided to put up at the hotel over- night. I had a hard time getting a room. There was a convention or meeting of some kind on. Finally the room clerk condescendingly found a place [or me. When I turned to follow the boy with my bag, a crowd of people burst from the bar into the lobby. All of them, men and a scattering of women, were middle.aged. The men had reached that period in life when they weren't physically what you would call pretty. They sagged. The fat ones sagged in the bellies and under the chins; the skinny ones under their eyes and at the shoulders. Nor were the women any more streamlined. Everyone was laughing, laugh- ing and shouting, shouting silly, senseless things at each other. They were high. I thought suddenly of how out of place it was in a world in which millions were hungry, bombed, being slain, that these people should be chasing about this hotel lobby like children, compete- ly unconscious of the world around them. I wondered by what right they were so privileged. What had they done, what were they doing to earn such freedom from the re- sponsibilities of a world locked in a death struggle? Then, out of the corner of my eye, I caught sight of a short pudgy man. He was much older than when I had last seen him. But even in that flash there was no mistaking him. He was walk- ing with an arm around some woman. It was my father. "John," he said in a voice too loud for conversation, "why John." His right hand reached across his chest, and he began tugging on the lobe of his left ear. "Hello, Dad," I said. "Well John, what are you do- ing here?" "Just passing through," I told him. Then he lowered his voice. "I heard about your grandfather Too bad. But he was getting old, Past seventy, wasn't he? But he was close to you. You were always like him. Johnny, my boy, is there anything I can do?" A few weeks earlier I might have made a quick reply that there was something he could do: that he could go to hell. And looking around the room, I might that I had to do. I told him I have added, you and your whole thought it was more important  ..... t^- i ht h ' ........ r g at t e moment.

This was reported today by the National Safety Council, whic conducts the contest. The four states  Connecticut Oklahoma, Minesota and Utah  had a composite 1943 mileage death rate 35 per cent below the national average, the Council said. If the national rate had been on that level last year's traffic toll would have been 15,000, instead of 3,300. 72 Shcdes Camouflage The War Department's exacting specifications for camouflage calls for 72 different shades of paint  Funny Business By Hmshbmqm "Short pumps make our customers feel better when they can only get such a little gas:" This Curious Wor, It By William Ferguson U.S. Army Unit Answer to Pl'evloua Izle IKINI SlKIKtmINI( MIIDI 6[Ln' IFalA]dITt SIHIAISIPl 21 Type of (abbr.) latticework 40 Previous 23 Native metal (prefix) 24 Beneath 41 Part of "be  26 Like an elf 44 River sland 28 Like 45 Shouts 29 Singing voice 46 Solicitude 31 Exist 47 Above HORIZONTAL 53 Island (Fr.) ) Depicted is 54 Fortification insigne of 56 Shield New York and hearing Philadelphia 57 Irregular , U.S. 58 Balance Army VERTICAl, 9 Sloping ways 14 Kept I Appearance 15 Preposition 2 Ply back 16 Opera (abbr.) , Overtime 17 Pare (abbr.) 18 Devotee 4 Short sleep 19 Music note 5 Row 20 Burmese 6 Sluggish wood spirit 7 Lamprey 8 Road (abbr.) 33 Era 9 Stratagem 34 Symbol for 10 Social insect erbium 11 Mount (abbr.) 35 Nova Scotia ZI 2 .2 ZZ Zk,  60 ,t q 55 E" a5 U W" i& 48 Native of Denmark 50 Encounter 52 Dance step (abbr.) 53 Anger 36 Kind of shot 55 Accomplish 37 Ells English 56 Either b 7 8 q o it J$ z ', s I I I 22 Railroad (abbr.) 23 Poem 24 Tunisian ruler 12 Heap 25 Seaport town 13 Kill of Syria 18 Fish 27 Weight z deduction 29 One (ScotJ  30 Note in Guido's scale ,I, 32 Symbol for zo selenium 33 Girl's name $ 36 Bell tower 38 Engines 39 Calummate 40 Parent 3s 3? 42 At this time 't 43 Within 44 It is part of the insignia of LheU.

Perhaps it is their way of making it obvious that they prefer the Navy, but were drafted before they had a chance to make a choice. In some climates, sleeping on the ground is not particularly healthful, due to various and sun- dry creeping, crawling creatures that infest the area. It is here that the HAMMOCK comes into its own and is really appreciated. --By Leslie Turner C01NbTO LAD GONMA BE AWFDI. ?HI& LAME pUC< l ,A F YOU BOYS WHEN WE ET ] DOkrT qlJtT MIJ$$1N' !.i " ' I FRECKLES AND HIS FRIENDS .,._,,:.., 6y  e sreeer AND Cve .wv.
