When Shelia visit th* court, Pat is jealous of Tom i interest in her cousin. ( IIAPTKR XII It was a hanI battle trying t« mntrol her thoughts. Pat onl> knew she wished it was her haml that helped hold the big yellow hound law hook Tom grasped, ami that it was her sleeve that brushed his as he and Shelia crowded to gether at the talde. She prayed for the case to he resumed so that Tom would have to go away, and then when he moved hevond her line of vision she was miserably conscious of th eloss of something intangible but lovely. "lie's grand, Pat." Shelia whis pered. "If only I weren't stuck in a poky school room all day. You don't know how utterly dead it can he. Forty children all doing the wrong thing at the wrong time, all getting on one's nerves at once, and not a single solitary soul to talk with. You're lucky. You always have been. You have so much." Pat's lips were dry as she made an inaudible answer, l.uekv. she thought bitterly. It seemed that her world was emptied of luck and happiness. She was ;t stranger to herself. She couldn't explain the feeling she had for Tom be cause despite the heartbreak and worry over Larry she still cared for him, wanted to save him. wanted to be near him, to hear him say he needed her. Ties such as those that bound them couldn't be broken or even worn thin in a few weeks. She rubbed a hand over her forehead and made a pretense of working. Her reac tion frightened her. Loyalty had too long been a part of her creed. Love anil loyalty to Larry when he needed her most. That was what she must remember. This fee I inr for Tom must simply be the admiration an honest, sincere, kind man awakened in one. Shelia stayed on until the day's work ended. Pat forced herself to act naturally, to hide the new feeling of possessiveness toward Tom. In an agony of remorse and shame at the sensation that had swept over her when she saw her cousin with him. she invited She lia home for dinner. "You haven't been over for an evening in a long while. Today's a spree for you anyway, so have dinner with us. Mom will be pleased too. You can give her all the family gossip." • «s * She was welcome, for Shelia's chatter during the evening meal covered Pat's own silence. Mrs. McCiraw loved company, for as her children grew up. their lives became more complete and involv ed with their own little groups. "When their father was alive things were never dull around here." she said. "When he'd come home he'd have some fine tales to tell. Hut them were the old days when the police in this town were two-fisted men. The hoodlums were afraid of the men on the beat for they stood for no funny business. When the boys would act up the police would take them by the scuff of thier necks and bump their heads together—" The boys loved to have their mother reminisce. They laughed at her. teased her. and egged her on to tell more stories, but their eyes grew tender when she told them of young Dennis McGraw's experience as a beat man. "It's nice having Pat down at the court." she told her niece. "Once in a while she meets some of the old ones— ones that knew and worked with Den. I'm glad she's there and not in one of them I fancv offices like lhev *hwW " • ' movies with velvet ami marbh r a ml millionaire bosses.

"You wouldn't dare. Not after what 1 know, Larry." "Who would have a better right? You're still wearing my engagement ring.

In the confusion of ending the day she stood frozen when Bill slipped over to I.arry and spoke to him. Church put his hands on the boy's shoulders and slapped him on the hack. Pat pushed her way to them. "Bill, dear," she tugged at him until they were away from the others. "Why are you here? What's happened?" His tanned young face grow crimson. "Well, Pat, 1 thought maybe I could help. Larry said if I came down and said that I saw his car before you went to the club and didn't notice any loose fender it would help him." "But. darling, you didn't see the car." she said. "Well—I know, but, Pat, h<' said it would help him. And I know how much you care for him. Gee. you've been looking awful lately.

Patagonia Once Warm, Fertile ■ Land, Is Belief Johns Hopkins Expert Says Africa, Australia One Land Formerly XK\V YO!!\. Sent. JS. I IT). Catatonia, stretching across three territories of S«»ntlie*r 11 Argentina, today is cold, arid, barren. Pata gonia yesterday was warm, fer tile, flourishing in growth. ^ es terday, geologically speaking, was 25,000,000 years ago. l)r. Edward W. Berry of .Johns Hopkins university, in a report to the Geological Society of Amer ica. here, said he had received a large collection of fossiis from Jose Ramon Guinazu, olficial of the bureau of mines and geology of the Argentine republic. 'I he fossils revealed that the steppes country once supported great for ests of evergreens, ferns and flowering plants and shrubs. many of which were completely new to science. I Berry, after his studies, favor ! i>d the theory advanced by many botanists that the barren conti nent of Antarctica was far great er than it is today, "probably unit ing Australia, New Zealand South America and South Africa, and many of the plants found in these regions today originally emigrated j from Antarctica." The geologist said lie could find I no evidence in any of the tertiary 1 flora of South America for the • well-known u •«>!'it-.J hypothesis of "continental drift." According to this theory, ail the continents once were joined, l>i:t later drift ed apart to their present positions. "If this were true," Berry said, 1 "it would be expected that the ' Bio Pichileufu (a river in the ! territory of Rio Negro) flora j would show some similarity with I the African flora, but there was j no similarity, whatsoever. These J floras aie quite as' typically I South American as the present | floras of that continent." i Comparison of tin- plants found in the territories of Ifio Negro, ) Chubut and Santa Cruz and from j Chile presented a vivid picture of the vegetation in South America aid. and Sam Stepp made a busi ! ness trip to Mich Pine Friday.

Ecuador, IVru, Chile and Bolivia, said the similarity of the plants in Pata gonia and in Chile—-separated by the gigantic Andes — eonvinced him that the mountains were mueh lower than they are today and that there was no difference in climate on tiie eastern and west* i ll sides. "The Amies were sufficiently lii'Ji,'' he said, "to give the Pacific region a greater rainfall and a den.-'e forest streamed eastward over divides and populated the Patagonian \alleys. Prevailing winds at the time were westerly because of llie enoimous beds of volcanic ash in Patagonia, whose source must have been the An dean region and which thin to ward the east. Seas, moving in land from east and west, even tually covered much of the conti nent." Perry deduced fro in the fossils that forces within the earth later uplifted the Andes, draining the seas. Erosion gradually wore down the mountains and another period of earth disturbances re sulted in the present Andes. "This last uplift," Berry said, "is the main reason for the dis similar climates and consequently dissimilar floras on its two sides, making Patagonia the inhospit able region that it is at present."

STUDY TURKEY FOR POSSIBLE STAND ON WAR Dealt Allies Stunning Blow in World War by Clos ing Dardanelles By OTTO JANSSEN United Prc#» Staff Corrcipondcnt WASHINGTON, Sent. 2K. (UP). Observers here are watching elosely for any indication of tho direction in which Turkey, com mander of the Dardanelles*, will move in event of a European war. Naval and military observers unofficially attach the greatest importance to the strategic posi tion this nation of 1(1,000,000 holds. During the World war, when the Turks entered the strug gle on the side of the central pow ers. she dealt a stunning blow to the allies by closing the passage way between the Black and Medi terranean seas. This immediately cut off Russia from Great Britain and France, stopping flow of Russian wheat to the allies and British and French munitions to Russia. In addition. Great Britain and Russia were forced to divert large, sorely needed resources to defend the Caucasus and the Suez canal. Turkey has lost none of its mili tary importance, observers con tend, and the nation or group of nations that has her as an ally will he in an extremely advan tageous position. Besides controlling the Darda nelles, Turkey holds a command ing position over the Suez canal, one of the key points in Britain's lifeline to the east. At the outbreak of the World war, Britain tried desperately to persuade Turkey to remain neu tral and even went to the extent of bombarding forts at the en trance to the Dardanelles. Short ly afterward Britain declared war on the Turks. Because of her commanding po sition in the Black Sea, which flanks the British lifeline, Turkey could seriously hinder British communications with her own ships or by permitting vessels or other nations to use Turkish ports. Turkey has made no definite commitments in the present crisis but it is known that both Germany and Britain have been courting her. Germany has been obtaining an increasingly dominant position in the Turkish market in recent years and in l!K}<! supplied about I") percent of the nation's im ports. The Reich took about •"> I percent of Turkey's exports in that year. German domination of the Turkish market became so serious that the Turkish government he jgan expressing apprehension and J last year took corrective steps. As | result, German exports dropped to | ! about 42 percent und imports to] , about .'$<i percent. Nevertheless, i Germany still retains a cohnnand- I ing position in the market. In an apparent effort to win ( I Turkey to her side last May j Britain loaned the Turkish gov ! eminent $ IS,000,000 to purchase | industrial and mining equipment, land warships in Great Britain. Many observers feel that, prin ! cipally as a result of the British I goodwill gesture, Turkey is lean ling toward that nation. | The Turks are said to have a good fighting machine. Her reg ular army consists of 100,000 men. Her trained reserves are ! listed as about half a million men. Her navy consists of two battle crui,sers, two cruisers, nine de I stroyers and torpedo boats and I five submarines. FRIGHTENS MOTORISTS I MKI.BOURNK, Australia.

Cooper, dentist, wrestler and inventor, is adopted. The cup patented by Cooper, who collects also first editions and autographed books, has the shape of a head and face. The contents are sipped through the lips of tin pottery, enabling the drinker to "kiss and drink up." The dentist developed his idea while working on sculpture which he exhibited at the Cleveland Mu seum of Art and in Hollywood. He once won a wrcstlinir cham pionship at Ohio State university, has invented a dental device, and has beaten Joe Louis—in beaten copper caricature, a type of sculp tu re.
