I The Runaway Wife
* By VERNIE CONNELLY
I INSTALLMENT XIIL
MARTIN became Increasingly
attentive. He saw that Dr.
Junet both liked and respect
ed Jean and. without waiting
for his scientific verdict, took
this as an Indication of the favorable
report he would undoubtedly receive
later. So, not wishing to lose too much
time in settling his fate, which had
been in abeyance since he met Jean,
he let her realize his fondness for her,
without actually committing himself.
This served further to increase the
disapproval of Dr. Junet, who felt that
Martin was adding injury to insult
Trhrn he led Jean to câre for him.
with the possibility that there would be
no culmination in marriage if her
character failed to measure up to his
requisites for a wife and mother.
Martin had opened his Southampton
home and had not come up to town
all that week. He asked Dr. Junet to
drive Jean and Marcia down for the
week end.
"Shall we start pretty scon?
Dr. Junet stood in the doorway of
Jean's office, his kindly smi'.e. which
she did not suspect was tinged with
pity, brightening his usually serious
countenance. Jean liked him ana
thought how fortunate she was that
her new job included a man like this,
noï onlv as a boss, but a friend as
well. For Victor Junet had made it
clear to her that he was her friend
and she could depend on him in any
manner she chose. This was his way.
at first, of making up to the friendless
little girl, as he termed her in his own
mind, for the unkind thing Martin was
doing to her.
Jean answered his smile with her
own quick one, "Just two minutes." she
said. "Tell me. did you see that young
poet person? And what do you think
of him? He interested me very much."
"Yes, I had a long talk with him.
He is neurotic ... an unbalanced,
exaggerated ego, visionary in the ex
treme: but he has unmistakable tai
ent. Heredity and environment have
both been against him, I'd say. His
father was on the stage. I think, and
died of an accident when the boy was
14 or 15; since then. I imagine, he has
had a hard time—he's sensitive and
proud. He applied for a job on the
Times and Bill Whitney sent him over
here."
"Perhaps that is why he won my
sympathy—he is an orphan, like my
self; onlv there is something else
about him that I can't figure out—a
sort of resemblance to some one that
bothers me. You can't imagine how
much I miss my father—he could
always analyze things for me so lu
cidly ..."
Jean was putting her desk in order,
Working swiftly while she talked. Dr.
Junet thought: "She has lovely hands
. . . she is lovely, too . . . she
ought not to be In/an office." Out
loud he said: "You never mention
your mother."
"No. ... I don't remember her.
She went away when I was 2 years
old ..."
Dr. Junet lit a cigarette, and walked
over to the window. He looked down j
on the river, appearing causually to
observe the scene below, but In reality
his mind was a little more than dis
turbed over the problem Jean repre
sented. and he was actually seeing
nothing.
"You mean your mother died?" he
asked.
"No ... she and daddy were
not happy . . . at least mother
wasn't, and one day she went away
with a man she cared for. She said
she didn't want to be entirely selfish
and take all daddy's happiness away,
so she left me. I think that was gener
ous, don't you?"
Dr. Junet sensed at once the distress
of the girl over the fact that her
mother had deserted her, and recog
nized that she had built up a picture
of noble renunciation in her mind, an
Idealism that it would be cruel to
shatter.
"I think it was a wonderful thing
ior a mother to do," he answered, and
•was rewarded with the quick look of
relief that sprang into Jean's eyes.
Dismissing the subject then, she
asked: "What are you going to do
with my poet?"
"He really ought to go to a hospital
ior observation, though I don't know
just how much luck I'll have with him
—he is In bad nervous and physical
condition . . . and he verges on
being a psychopathic case."
"I suppose you'll think me very care
less when I tell you that I've invited
him to come to a party Marcia and I
are giving Wednesday night. He is
going fcp read us some of his poetry—
entertaih us. I'll pay him, of course; j
he is so poor; that is really the reason
I made the engagement, so I'd have an
excuse to give him some money. He is
broke.''
"I suggest that you Just give him the
money, then, and cancel the entertain
ment."
"No; he Is too proud to take It. I
understand how he feels—he wants to
earn his way, and with conditions as
they are now. you know It is hard for
him to get a job."
She went to get her hat. "There,
I'm ready—that was a long two min
Ï
, utes, wasn't It? I'm sorry to have
kept you waiting."
-It makes no difference to me, but
I expect Martin will be fuming all over
the place if we are late."
They stopped to get Marcia. She w
ready, but Jean had forgotten to pack
the night before, and now Marcia must
help her hurriedly thrust the lovely
sports things into a bag which she had
bought especially for this week end with
Martin. In the living room, when they
were ready to leave. Jean Introduced
Marcia to Dr. Junet. She had already
speculated on a possible romance be
tween these two. and noted that they
greeted each other in what she termed
a hopeful manner. Certainly, they
lnoked well together—Marcia s red

U. S. SEEKS RULING
ON RADIO PLUG-IN
Supreme Court Review In
volves Millions in Back
Royalties to Inventors.
BY ROBERT MACK.
A Supreme Court review of a case
that may mean millions of dollars in
back royalties for two practically un
known engineers for their invention of
the basic "plug in" atttachment for
radio, which eliminated the use of bat
teries, has been asked by the Govern
ment.
Percival D. Lo veil and Francis W.
Dunmore, the co-inventors of the device
while they were employed at the Bu
reau of Standards in 1926, are the men
embroiled in the litigation along with
Dubilier Condenser Co. of New York.
Only last March they had a court vic
tory snatched from them that would
have meant millions of dollars in back
royalties from the Radio Corporation of
America, when the latter company had
that decision reversed by an appeals
court. A new appeal on the royalty
question alone is understood to be con
templated in behalf of the engineers.
Indirect Bearing on Suit.
The Government appeal, sought by
the Department of Justice, relates only
indirectly to the damage suit for patent
infringement against the R. C. A. It
is from the decision of the Circuit Court
of Appeals in Philadelphia a few
months ago denying the claim of the
Government that it is entitled to owner
ship of the 'socket power unit" patents
because Lowell and Dunmore perfected
them while employed by the Govern
ment. Thomas D. Tar her, solicitor
general, claims that the Supreme Court
has never passed on such an issue and
that it should review the lower court
decision.
The question raised by the depart
ment is "whether or not the United
States has equitable title tô inventions
for the improvement of the radio art
made by technical research employes of
the Bureau of Standards while engaged,
principally during regular hours of em
ployment, in research relating to the
advancement of the radio art, which
was within the scope of their general
employment, although they were not
specially assigned or directed to devise
the particular Inventions."
Infringement Suit Bearing.
Hinging directly on this issue, how
ever, is the damage suit of the in
ventors and Dubilier against the RCA—
one of the biggest patent infringement
suits ever instituted since it involves
royalties on all radio sets which draw
their power from house electric cur
rent. While RCA at this time is the
victor, the, case may also be appealed
to the Supreme Court for review.
Dunmore is still employed at the
Bureau of Standards. Lowell is un
derstood to be in radio work in New
York. The two inventors turned over
half-interest in their patents to the
Dubilier Co.. which lias financed the
protracted litigation. It has been es
timated that back royalties which would
be due Lowell and Dunmore, should
they win the damage case and also
the Government ownership suit, would
be in excass of $20,000,000.
