(UP).—Drys of South Carolina are planning- a militant battle against the "legal ' ale of intoxi cating: liquors in any shape or form." , The Federated Forces met aft er the state convention which vote?! against repeal, to formulate plans to hold their grounds in the state. Citizens of South Carolina voted in favor of prohibition by a J}.000 majority Nov. 7. Former Governor John Q. Rich ards introduced a resolution at the dry meeting opposing "the re submission of th«? liquor question in any form in the state since al ready it ha:' been submitted three times." At present, the state has a stat ute which permits the importation of a quart of liquo'r a month oy any person obtaining a permit from a county judge. The drys were divided on whether to seek repeal of this law at the next leg islative session. Charlton DuRart, dry, who said that as state senator in 1017 ho drafted the liquor control meas ure, opposed efforts to repeal the "quart a month" law. He said it \ would be "ridiculous" for the stale , , to prohibit purchase of liquor for I "medicinal" purpose?. From 1893 to 1907, South Car ! clina tried an experiment with a dispensary system. In 190G. the | legislative committee investigating the dispensary system reported that "officials of the dispensary system have become shameless in their abuse of power, insatiable in their greed and perfidious in j the discharge of their duties." The abolition of the dispensa ; l ies as a state system came in i 1907 and a number of hijrh ofTi I cials were convicted of conspiracy j against the state. 1 LOAN SHARKS RESTRAINED ISTANBUL.

TACKLES LAST FRONTIER iVintef Playground Will Be Made of Death Val ley, Declared DEATH VALLEY, Cal.. Dec. 20.—(LiP).—In the shadow of Mt. "Wffitney, rising 14.501 feet ajbove Jea level to the highest point' ih the United States, 400 young men work under the broil ing^sui« of famous Death Valley, 271) feet below sea level, building a winter playground out of what is reputed to be the world's dry est bit of terrain.j The men, hailing from the city streets and the mountains, are members of the 52!»th and 530th companies of the Civilian Conser vation Corps, Lt. Col. H. H. Ar nold commandinjr. Undeterred by ihe grim nomen clatures of Death Valley, Funeral Range, Dante's View, Devil's Golf Course and Dead Man's Pass, the men have embarked vigorously on the major portion of the work in this land of red mountains, purple sunsets, somber shadow.", and vagrant winds that chase "dust devils" across the waste lands. About 30 miles of roads have been built and eight new wells have rewarded searchers for wa ter. M. 15. Holliday of the Na tional Park Service, says it is possible to have wells every 10 or! 15 miles in the valley. Lt. Col. Arnold, here on an in spection trip, urged the men to regard themselves as pioneers in the last real frontier in the Uni ted States. He did not under estimate the character of the ob stacles. Much of the credit for the high morale existing in the Death Val ley camp must be given to the Army Reserve Officers, the Ma rirte Corps officers, and the two enjisted men who have charge of the conduct of the camp affairs. It is the mission of the National Park officials to find work for the men and that of the officers to see that they are comfortably housed, well fed and furnished with their share of entertain ment. Parole Hearings Over Until Jan, 1 The Times-News Bureau Sir Walter lint*! RALEIGH, Dec. 20.—.No more parole hearings will be held until after January 1, Commissioner of Paroles Edwin M. Gill .-a'd today Nor will there be any "Christmas present" paroles issued, despite the hundreds of requests that have been received, Gill said. At the present time Commis sioner Gill has on his desk more than 500 rejuests for parole hear ings. But he does net expect to be able to hold any of these be tween now and January 1, altbo two or three hearings already scheduled may be held. "It will be an utter waste of time and effort for any one to write to this office requesting a parole hearing until after the first of the year," Commissioner GDI said. ftI don't know what it is, but we s'<?m to tret about ten tijnes gs many requests for pa role hearings about this time of year as any other time. They evi dently feel that the governor will be mere inclined to be lenient this time of year. "No more paroles will be is sued now, however, than at any other time, and all applications for parole will be just as careful ly investigated as ever. It is also likely to be several months before we will get an opportunity to hold hearings on many of these appli cations. since much time is re quired in the investigation of many of these applications." COLLECTING DATA AS TO UNEMPLOYED WOMEN OVER STATE The Times-News Bureau Sir Walter Hotel RALEIGH, Dec. 20.—Now that a definite quota of 4,700 jobs has been allotted to the state to be filled by women. Director Capus M. Waynick of the National Re employment Service in North Carolina, has issued instructions to all the office managers in the various counties to tabulate and classify the number of women registered and send the informa tion to him here by not later than Wednesday, he said today. Direc tor Waynick does not think more than 15,000 to 20,000 women have registered with the re-employment service offices so far, altho there has been a considerable increase in the registration of unemployed women during the past two weeks. So far there has been no ob ject in- either tabulating or classi fying the women who have regis i3y Laura Luvi BRQOKMW* e it ax *itA m«>k> » r. ■ k v.;*.** ■ ' \ ■ > [-■ nEf;is itFinn toda* DAVID RANMSTEH under take* lii And out wlni killi-ii TRACY l\ I \(i, nrelie*lr:i lender.

"David!" Kate Hewlett ex claini'.'J from the doorway. "Is anything wrong? Aren't you feel-1 >ng well?" Bannister laughed. "Why. of i ?ourne. I'm all right." Mrs. Hewlett looked relieved, i 'Oh," sl\e said. "I saw you com ing lip the walk and it gave me a ; start. It's heen so long since you've come in at this hour I thought something must have Happened." Bannister slipped the letter into his pocket. "Oan't a fellow knock off early just one after noon," he asked, "without break ing a leg or something for an ex cuse?" "Of course you can," nis aunt i igreed. "Come on into the living; room. I've been showing Juliet | j some old pictures—" She led the way into the adjoin- ; ing roon. Juliet France sat on a i low stool before the davenport, a ouge, old-fashioned photograph : album iu her lap. She looked up. smiling, as Bannister appeared. "I've just been seeing the cutest Picture of you," she informed him. Bannistrr took one look and •stopped, horror-stricken. "Aunt Kate," he demanded, "I thought vou promised me you'd never | show anyone those baby pictures again? You said—" Kate Hewlett's manner was un ruffled. "Did I. David?" she i *sked. "Well. I must have forgot I 'en. I was showing Juliet some i >f the old styles that used to be fashionable and we happened to ! 'ome across those others. She i igreed with me that they're real «weet." I "They are," the girl told him. I thought that one with the little voolly lamb—" Bannister's groan kept ner j rom finishing the sentence. He I ient down and took the album. 'Please," he said, "let me put that thing out of sight. Aunt Kate, If vou do this again I swear I'll get rid of it! I'll burn it up!" "You'll do nothing of the sort. >-oung man. Sit down and stop making so much fuss about noth ing. The idea! Burn up my pic tures—well, I guess you won't!" Bannister sat down but ne looked acutely uncomfortable. Nothing humiliated him quite so •nuch as those terrible pictures, ile was sure that the girl was nughing at him. though of course she'd try not to show lu . • • • [JIS aunt asked a question or * two and he answered Juliot Prance arose and went to the win-J dow j "Why. it's snowing!" she ex claimed "It started just before I caught the car to come home." Bannister told her. "It's not very cold.) though " "I love snow," the girl said I'd like to be out in it " "Well." Mrs. Hewlett suggested crisply, "why don't you and David go for a walk?" She turned to her nephew "You could take her over' to Winthrop Park. It's real pretty with the snow on the trees. I've been wanting Juliet to get out j and see more of Tremont." Bannister looked at the girl "Would you like to go?" he asked "I'd love it!" Bannister got to his feet. I "You'd better bundle up," ne | warned. "It's not cold but after being in the house all day you'll j feel the difference.!' "She can wear my sweater j under tier coat." Kate Hewlett said practically. "And my ga loshes. I'll get them right out!" Five minutes later they set out. i The air was tilled with the soft snow Hakes, swirling and dancing. The prim row of houses on either side of the street with their prim i trees and shrubs looked friend lier, more attractive through the' faint haze of white. "See." Bannister said, "it's not | cold. The snow melta almost as soon as it touches the ground." i The girl caught several snow j flakes on the green wool of her' sleeve. "Aren't they beautiful?" she asked, holding the arm up. They were, but Bannister was i surprised to realize how long it had been since he had considered that lie remembered as a small boy in his tirst years at sctiool discovering the intricate patterns of the snow flakes. Elaborate de signs and each one different, lie remembered a song they had sung in school about Jack Frost who came in the night and painted the window panes. It made him feel unaccountably young — younger than he had felt for years OANNISTKR said on impulse. "I'll race you to the corner!" It \va3 more than half of a long blocl: tiut tie finished only a step or two ahead. She came up. laugh ing and breathing deeply.' her chceks pink. "Oh!" she said, "that was fun!" ' "Exercise is what I've been needing. 1 guess." ne agreed I "Now that you're warmed up we; can walk!" Bannister adjusted nis long, j swinging stride to the gil l's "Let i me know if I walk too fast for j you," he cautioned. "You won't." They sec off briskly 1'lie girM seemed content not to talk, as was ! Bannister. Presently they pas*eo | the corner let where, in school days his gang had played baseball He remeuvt)ercd an amusing incident and told it. Then be went on talking about kid stunts, about the good times and trials and uean breaks of those days. There was the time he and Bill Schwartz staged a turtle race and his turtle wandered into church. There was the time the whole gang worked for weeks, trying to save money for the circus, and then, the day before it opened, three of them came down with measles. Juliet smiled and shook her load.

"There used to be a ' zoo." lie explained, "but that went the way of all municipal appropri ations. Farther up this path there's a place I used to like. It'* high enough so that you can see most of the town." Then went on until, standing at , the top of the gradual incline."Tre^ mont spread out before them. There was little to be seen except an ex panse of white, dotted with a myriad of lights The wind wee colder on the hill and Bannistqr . drew closer to the girl as he pointed out familiar landmarks. "Getting cold?" he asked. She denied it. "Just the same," he said, "we'd better be starting ' back. It's a good walk." They retraced their steps. Tho sky had been cloudy when they left the house but now it was much i darker. At a street crossing that was slippery Bannhter took the girl's arm. He held it the rest of the way home, assuring himself it . . was 110 more than courtesy. The streets really weren't safe. They reached the white cottage and stepped Into the cheerful warmth and light. Bannister, help- , * ing the girl out of her coat, recog nized a familiar odor. 'Popcorn!" he exclaimed. "Aunt Kate's making popcorn balls!" His aunt appeared in the door way "I'm not making them," ehe corrected. "They're made. You'll find a bowl full on the dining room table. Bring it into the living room. David. I thought you'd be hungry after your walk." "And am I?" Bannister ex claimed, disappearing into the din ing roqm. He returned with the bowl filled with popcorn balls. "Take one," he urged Juliet. "They're one of Aunt Kates specialties. "You'll never know what a masterpiece a popcorn ball can be until you've tried one." .. "They look marvelous." the girl said, smiling. Kate Hewlett looked at her. "I oelieve the walk did you good, Juliet, i'ut a little color Into year cheeks." It was true. There was a light in the girl's eyes. too. to match the j ylow of her cheeks.

But now that it is j definitely known that jobs will be' provided for 4,700 women, lh»_» larger number of whom will be drawn from those who have regis tered in the re-employment oi- j fices, it is now necessary to enu-1 morate these women registrants and classify them according to their abilities, Waynick pointed ) out. The Civil Works administration ! has already asked for the number of unemi)loyed nurses registered, j with a view to organizing a num-1 ber of work projects for them, j Waynick said. Some of these will i [ be given employment in publi^ hospitals, in public health service, tin doing home nursing for fam ilies on relief and through the or ganization of classes in midwifery,, in order to improve the standards i if the mid wives in the state. Other projects are also under way for the employment of some -100 to 500 unemployed school teachers. Others will he given jobs making surveys and doing statistical work. Still other projects will he organ ized to provide jobs for unemploy ed stenographers and office work ers.
