they met was in a public dance hall.
She was standing at the side pong
ing for a .lance with anyone.
He sauntered up, asked for a dance
with her and' she complied. She
didn't mind his cigaret breath or his
boorish demeanor. He was a per
fect dancer, and in that she reveled.
' The second time they met was on
the street. He barely tipped his hat
to her, and she smiled to him.
That was encouraging, so the third

No whispered or stuttered inkling
came from Mister Vanderlip on why

Hughes and after the war there will
be grave .business problems to face.
But .outside of that Mr. V. pussy
footed his way locally and vocally.
"There are important and delicate
financial and business problems fac
ing the country which must be care
fully dealt with," was one handout of
wisdom from the Vanderlip oracle.
He being the vice president of the
biggest bank in America, the Na
