The Bsauty of Miss Columbia Excites
My Jealousy
By the time we were all attired for
the ballet of the ballots. Jim had wel
comed the crowd, and the mayor and
the governor and Martha Palmer had
made their little speeches. All with
vast success, we judged, as. the ap
plause floated back to the bungalows
where we were dressing.
I wa too tired to care much about
the show. 1 simply wanted to get
through with it, to count it as a thin,
of the past. The careless way in
which Ann had disposed of the girls'
rings made me nervous, and I suppose
Katherine. Miller's loveliness exas
perated and depressed me.
She was not one of a chorus, as I
was. She was Miss Columbia, unique
and superb. She was not a haughty
Columbia, arrayed in dignified draper
ies of silk as stiff as armor, but the
Columbia of a dream world, draped in
layers of diaphanous nets, a vision of
trie red, white and blue personified.
Cheers greeted her as she emerged
from the darkness of the trees and ad
vanced magestically to a huge natural
rouider in the meadow, which anybody
could plainly see Nature had planted
there especially for our "pretend" Ply
mouth Rock. A hidden arrangement of
powerful fans stirred her draperies and
blew .her magnificent hair about her
very magnificent self. .

jealous thought, and I tried to find my
husband's face in the crowd. I wanted
to see how the vision affected him,
and because I could not find him, I
assumed that he must be deeply moved
by it.
Only my own need to listen, for my
cue forced me to give up my search
for Bob.
Columbia, in the ballet, was plagued
oy a norae or evil gnomes. Our nice
boy scouts obligingly masqueraded as
these wicked creatures, that is, they
were willing to take parts after they
learned that their faces would be cov
ered and that we wouldn't put their
names on the progarm. Not one of
them was willing to be. set down as
"greed." or profiteer,' or selfishness, or
fraud, or anti-Americanism, or any
other of the horrid enemies that danced
around Columbia and tantalized her
like wicked gnats.
Columbia, with many a vain com
mand, bade them avaunt and depart.
wicked snomes would shrink up and
slink away, but eventually they always
returned to harass her. and every time
they came back, their numbers had in
creased in a manner which caused her
great dismay.
finally, in despair. Columbia was
obliged to summon her natural defend
ers, the ballots.
Blast after blast she blew upon her
silver bugle, and. at each call, one of
the lovely girls of the ballet emerged
suddenly from behind a group of trees
or a hedge. And certainly each "bal-
of was a dainty picture as she tripped
in frantic haste but with terpsichorean
grace to the rescue of the distressed
The aDDlause for each of us was tre
mendous. The audience was pleased
not only because the girls were beauti
ful. The people caught the idea of
the rally that by means of the ballot.
Columbia could be saved from every

moned by Columbia that night. Taking
my place near Katherine Miller, in an
attitude Of defense, I found that I was
in a position to look straight at Jim
Junior, who, as chairman, had a promi
nent position near our mock Plymouth
Rock. Never had I seen Jim my -boy
looking so perfectly handsome.
After me came Deborah Burns. Kath
erine Miller's only competitor in beauty
that night. For me, Deb is the per
sonification of what an American girl
ought to me. Jim hadn't seen her for
over three years. Deborah was simply
superb as she hastened to her place
next to me. And Jimmy-boy's face
was a study.
The next bugle call summoned Willy
Van Eyck, tut I failed to observe her
progress. I couldn't help watching
Jim and Deb. They had forgotten where
they were. They had forgotten them
selves. They were simply gazing at
each other, like ghosts or spirits,
across . infinite time and space, it
seemed to me.
Jim failed to see his wfe dance
across the green when her turn came.

Deb, that I ought to interrupt that
never-to-be-forgotten glance, before
Ann lined up with us, and looked about
her. So I whispered some common
place to Deb.
Ann mustn't see for her own sake
and for Jim's.
Deb and Jim were heroic souls. I
knew they would never give poor little

TEMPE. Aug. 27. Foreseeing the
growth of Tempe to include. the new
subdivision w-est of town, where a sec
tion of land was recently disposed of
in small tracts, the council has? taken
an initial step in the Improvement in
that part or the town by requiring the
removal of the stockyards of the Ari
ozna Eastern railroad company to a
point outside the city limits. At a
special meeting this week the matter
came up before the city aldermen and
the clerk was directed to take it up
with the corporation commission.
The stockyards in their present con
dition and location are unsightly and
unhealthy in the opinion of the coun-
cilmen. and since repairs will soon be
necessary on them, now is the logical
time to make the move. A site for the
yards a mile south of town is offered,
it is said.
