She looked at him for a moment speculatively, wondering just how to broach the subject uppermost in her mind right now 0 . ' £>ne plunged in. "Rod, dear, your father wants you to ask Mr. Bill mgs daughter to the Festival Dance." Date By FERN Al'BLE ROD, dear," Mary Trent paused at the foot of the stairs as the inevitable bang of the front door announced the unmistakable arrival ®f her 17-year-old « son. 3 Fiction Rod looked at her unbelievingly and then bolted upright, indignation every line of his lanky frame. "What!" he exploded, "That in drip!" ..., You haven't asked anyone else yet, have you?" his mother asked. "N-not exactly, but I thought I'd «rag Elly. Do I have to. Mom?" ''No, son, you don't have to, but it would be a very friendly gesture. After all, the Billings are fairly new here and Anna Marie probably , hasn't made many new friends." "That I can believe," he mut tered darkly, a mental vision of the daughter of his father's boss in his mind's eye. 1 He turned to his mother now, de spair darkening his face. "Did Dad tell Mr. Billings that I'd take her?" "I'm afraid he did. Rod. sorry, son, but after all. you haven't I'm asked anyone else and your father w'ould be pleased." "Nuts!" He shoved his hands deep in his pockets and kicked at the rug disconsolately. "Oh, all right, she's a creep, but tell Dad I'll give my all for the family." 9PHE next three weeks sped by at an alarming rate. Rod, having called Anna Marie under pressure, reflected gloomily, as he dressed for the dance. A half hour later, he was ringing the Billings' doorbell. The door opened and a sweet-faced woman was smiling at him. "Oh, you must be Rod," she said, ; vpening the door wide. "Come in, | 1 ï ■ I I I -Â " 'Tis just me effervescent spirits, ma'am." won't you? Anna Marie will be I down in just a minute." Rod stepped inside and stood nervously waiting for Anna Marie j to come down. He looked up quickly j as a faint sound reached him. He j literally stopped breathing as he be held the vision of loveliness de scending the steps. Her skin was as smooth and creamy white as the petals of a newly-opened magnolia. Her hair, caught up in a soft cluster of curls, was like a sheaf of sunbeams caught and held by the gardenias be had sent her, under pressure from his mother. Her blue eyes j were like cornflowers laughing at the dazed look on his face. " Jaspers! a dream-puss, no lass," Rod 1 breathed. And then, "Ready for the retrace, beautiful?' The black lashes flew up and a | smile curved the lovely, softly pink ) mouth. "Natch," was the retort and, to 1 herself, Anna Marie added, "Glam- I orpuss."

Once considered a weed, the sunflower provided much needed oil during the past emergency. In 1903, the sunflower was decreed by the legislature to be the official Kansas flower. It was brought to Kansas—the historians say—in dirt clinging to the wheel of freight wagons coming from the southwest on the Santa Fe Trail. It had al ready been discovered by the In dians to be a source of seeds, oil and fiber. Early settlers, who first planted the sunflower for its beauty, later discovered the seeds and stalk were good for cattle feed. Volts, Amperes and Watts The three units, volts, amperes and watts, measure electrical pres sure, quantity of current, and th* power received. It is therefore cor rect to say that watts burn, sine* the burn is caused by the genera tion of heat (power) at the point of contact. The statements that volts cause shock and amperes kill is • little too simplified, since both fac tors enter into shock and electrocu tion. The volts (pressure) combina with the resistance of the body to determine how much current will flow, but the path taken through the body has a large influence on tha damage produced.
