It Was a busy seven days. IjOttie gave notice to her employer that she was leaving, and did it in such a way that Henri, bursting into aggrieved tears, demanded that she pack up her belongings and go im mediately. Lottie did that. She had no sooner reached her apartment than the telephone rang. "J'm not at home,” she told Sal lie. "If jt's for me, it’s Henri. He probably wants to ask me to come back.” T'n voice at the other end of the Wire was Henri's. ‘But Miss Carr never can be reached at home in the day time,” Sallip explained deftly. "Miss Carr is employed.” Therp was a Gallic sputter at the other end of the connection. Sallie's manner was composed as she an swered, "Oh, you are Miss Carr's employ er? She did not come in today?” There was a pause and then Sallie said. "Oh, I see!” With one hand over the transmit ter she turned, smiling. “It’s Henri. THEY TELL ME SUf Ja The Real Fight IT may hr Hoover versus Roose- I velt, in November as far as the I rest of the nation is concerned, but In Indiana the campaign is between that wily and conscienceless poli tician, Senator James E. Watson, and Frederick Van Nuys. For if Watson defeats Van Nuys for senator, then Indiana will go Republican all the way down the line: and if Van Nuys succeeds in ousting the senate veteran, then the state is safely Democratic.. Leaders of both parties realize this and especially Everett San ders, Republican national commit tee chairman, a native Hoosier, who knows that to save his party Jim must make the grade. Because this state’s fourteen elec toral votes are in the doubtful col umn this year, and because “big and selfish business” has its foremost champion, Indiana is to be the scene of one of the most bitter political hattles in its history. The great interests, whose cause Watson has championed to the det riment of the ordinary citizen, realize that they must “save Jim” and money is expected to be poured into the state G. O. P. coffers. Contrary to widespread belief over the nation, Watson is not a front runner in his home state. Hoosiers for years have viewed “Promising Jim” with suspicion. tt tt tt Add to this the fact that the Re publican state convention has left many sore spots, and it is charged openly by various Governor aspir ants that they had been “double crossed” by Watson and it is easy to perceive that the astute James is in a bad spot. Analysis of results of elections in which Watson has figured prove conclusively that if Watson goes down, the ticket is doomed. In 1916, when Indiana went Re publican, Watson trailed his running mate, Senator Harry New, by ap proximately 2.000 votes. In 1920. when the Democrats were smoth ered and Watson ran for the long term, he lagged thousands behind Harding.

He wants to hire you back.” "Tell him I haven’t come in yet" Lottie instructed. “Say you'll deliver the message when you see me." Obligingly Sallie compiled. She put down the telephone, saying "So you're really going to South America, are you?” Lottie sensed worry in Sallie's tone and hastily explained Mona's plan in regard to the apartment. “I'll pay half the rent until the lease expires anyhow. That'll be next October. I want a home to come back to.” "Maybe I can get another girl to come in while you are gone and save you that expense." Lottie shook her head. "It's all right. Get another girl to come in if you like, but get her out again when I come back, won't you? "Meanwwhile, I'll swing my share of the rent. I can afford it,” she added, "and It’s nice to have a place to come back to.” a a a THE days flew by. Besieged at the telephone by a repentant Henri, who had not taken her an nouncement of anew job and de parture from town seriously. Lottie finally capitulated to the extent of working two afternoons. The little apartment was piled with luggage. A wardrobe trunk stood open, filled with a careful selection of clothes. Sallie brought a nurse who had lived in the tropics and offered much advice. "Take cotton clothing.” she in sisted. “Even cotton underwear. It’s much cooler. Be sure all your hose are light colored. Mosquitoes feast on darker shades.” She urged Lottie to take plenty of cotton frocks and leather instead of rubber soled sports shoes. Laun dry was cheap, but not rapid. The whose ready pledges and still readier breaking of them had revealed his true policy of “self above party or friends,” had to make the race with out the aid of a national ticket. This campaign came during a pe riod of indictment of high Repub lican officials and on the heels of the Reed congressional inquiry into the Ku-Klux Klaft activities in the state with which Watson’s name was linked. tt tt When the polls closed at 6 p. m., Nov. 2. 1926, Watson was defeated— his friends today conpede that. Four days later, Lake county elec tion officials, after receiving and studying the results from other counties, decided to announce the vote in their county and it was as follows: Watson, 20.588; Albert Stump, Democrat, 8,124. Watson was re-elected by 11.383 votes. That’s his history in past elec tions. But there should be a dif ferent story in 1932. Van Nuys, the Democratic nomi nee. a former state senator, state chairman and district attorney, is considered one of the best cam paigners and stump speakers in the county. Where Jim makes promises and plenty of these with fingers crossed, Van Nuys meets him with a sincer ity unquestioned and ability un doubted. During the last few weeks, the Democratic nominee has spoken be fore thousands in the state. At no time has his sincerity been ques tioned. In his more than thirty years of political actfvity, Watson has spoken before millions in Indiana—at no time has his sincerity been be lieved. Because of this, scores of Re publicans are pledging their sup port to Van Nuys. And Lake county, which saved Watson in 1926, now has a Demo cratic prosecuting attorney and a Democratic sheriff, so there should be no repetition of the voting of floaters and ballot tampering which characterized the 1926 election. And that alone makes it tough on Jim. girls would need plenty of clothes. They ordered plenty. Lottie, whirling back and forth between her own apartment and Mona's home, arrived with this bit of that "tricky little model just Mona's size,” this hint as to seasickness. "I hear the Miranda is a regular tub,” she insisted, “and that means mal de mer with a vengeance.” Mona was equally busy. There were papers to sign, the house to close, servants to discharge tempo rarily and pay for the interval. Mona was too recently removed from the terrors of a lost job to do anything except what she consid ered the right thing by her em ployes. The girls bought cameras, dark glasses, magazines <the Miranda carried no supply. fancy little deck bags to hold glasses, books and handkerchiefs. A supply of a remedy for seasick ness. Ma brought this delightedly. Mrs. Callahan had told her about it. "How does your family feel about the trip?” Lottie asked Mona. “Great. I'll see Bud. you know’.” a a a THEY packed articles of lin gerie by the dozen, for the trip was a long one. "The booklet says that we can get laundry done at several ports of call while we are waiting,” ob jected Mona. "Do we need all these things in our cabin?” "Laundresses come down to the boat,” Sallie informed her amusedly. "Very dressy laundresses, wearing the duds other travelers were silly enough to entrust to them on earlier voyages!” “They’ll have to leave a deposit, then," Lottie declared. Raincoats and umbrellas for the rainy season. Chiffons for even ing. Very little silk., and countless hose! "It seems too bad to leave all those knockout clothes here,” Lottie murmured, referring to her beloved evening dresses. ‘"But it would be worse to take them and have them ruined.” Mona had met with little diffi culty in booking passage. An offi cial from the Virgin islands had canceled a suite. It was, obviously, the best to be had on the Miranda and Mona promptly engaged it. There were telephone calls, good bys, last minute purchases. Sallie rushed to buy a six-month stock of cosmetics and packed them compactly and cleverly in a single small overnight bag. "What are you going to do with the Empress?” Lottie asked. She had hoped that a quixotic urge would insist that Mona present it to Steve. "Leave it with Withington’s, of course.” Mona had decided against taking any jewels except her wed ding ring. They would prove only a burden. u n tt MONDAY came and went. Tues day. Wednesday. They were to sail Wednesday afternoon at four. The baggage had gone aboard the day before. Only the last few things remained to be done. A sin gle suitcase for last-minute packing lay open on the chaise longue. For the most part Mona had lim ited her wardrobe to black and white color to wear in the heat. It was warm and out of keeping with tropical surroundings. "Mourning isn’t used as much as it has been,” she told Lottie. "And, even though I am looking for some way to get around the will, I loved my husband. “In a way, I mean. In every way except the way I love Barry. That last day John promised to do for Barry what I am trying to find a way to do now.” “Wait until we see Steve,” Lottie advised. “Steve is the boy who will show us how.” "Maybe. If he and Barry aren’t furious with us for showing up.” “That’s a thought. That is a thought.

"Didn't they both say there were hardly any attractive women down there?” “I am not going with the idea of attempting to bowl any one over,” Mona remarked, repeating a phrase that was a favorite of Lottie’s. "You don't have to attempt to do that, darling.” Lottie said. "You do it no matter what your inten tions are." The bags were packed and Lottie and Mona were arrayed in dark winter dresses to be shed the sec ond day out.

The third day probably will be warm enough to start emulating summer.” Luncheon was served in Mona's sitting room. Later the car brought over the entire Moran family. They were going to the boat. Mona and Lottie, hatted and coated, flew about checking every thing. A taxi was called for the remaining baggage and Sallie, as the least interested member of the party about to see the girls off, con sented to ride with the bags.
