*'l've a little money—you can get
some coffee—“ She motioned toward
the .unch stand they were passing.
The aroma of cooking food made
their mouths water. Pans of baked
apples and rice podding in the win

“No —thanks a lot." Sadie sounded
brave, "if we ctln get picked up I'll
get a sandwich at the Gardens.”
"Picked up?" asked Eve. surprised.
"You can't get in without an es

ought not to have a hard time get

they'll take us they don't hdve to
dance with us all evening."
They were nearing a dark street
a th- edge of the Village. It was
near the river and the sharp chill
winds came In painful gusts.
Three sailors, their dinky white
hats sitting like snow cape on their
shor* cropped heads, turned out of a
side street and came toward the
glrla
••Sailors'" said Sadie, gleefully.
"They might try us!"
The sailors* eyes roved over the l

“Taxation and Social Welfare" will
be the subject of the Tuesday morn

"Hello, sailor!" said Baffle— and
Lillian thought she would drop, her
New England conscience got such A
jolt.
The sailors stopped and their eyas
were eager.
“Want to come along?" asked Sa
die. smiling friendly, us If she had
known them since childhood. Eve
and Lililah tried to seem at ease.
“Maybe.” said otie sailor.
“Dance at the Dream Gardena?"
Sadie Informed and asked, too.
The gobs looked at -each other and
then the three of them pushed In
among the girls
Dream Gardena was leas than a
block away. The bright green and
red and yellow lights over the en
trance announced: “Girls! Music!
Dancing'”
They could hear the music. And
there were several girls dallying
around near the entrance.
As they started up the steps a big
man said to a girl with a vividly
painted face: "Scraml You can’t get
In here without an escort, see? Now,
how many times do I have to tell
you that?"
"I'll betcha, Shanghai. 1 get some
body to dance with me," the girt
suid. lifting her face defiantly to the
big man. "if you let me In."
“You ain't a regular. Rose. The
lx>B» ain't taking on no new girls.
The others Would get sore. Business
is bad."
"Say, Shanghai. I wish yon had a
place of your own. I bet it would be
a knockout—you being such a swell
bouncer!” The girl laughed at her
own humor.
"Scram. 1 tell you."
The girl shrugged her shoulders
and looked Impudently at Lillian.

if to say. “You're good. Y’ou can go

The sailor with Lillian had his lit
tle hat tilted on his ear. He held her
tightly above the elbow when they
started up the steps and by the tlnle
they had taken a fetv strides h!s arm
fell about her waist.
A few weeks before she w-ould
have turned and slapped hhs smiling
red ffcce for that. But now, she Mar

thinking so much of the sailor's
freshness, but that he was being
nice to her. So. she didn't move his
arm from her waist
it was as Sadie said joyfully to
Lillian and Eve In the tiny, dirty
dressing room, where they went to
hartg their hats and coats and put
on more make-up: "Gee. what a

around this place trying to get some

Washington, April 14 The tax bill
still has a 'long road ahead of it.
Such legislation must originate in
the house of representatives, but the
senate subsequently ea n make it over
into almost any form it chooses, and
the guess is (hazarded by many sena
tors Ibbat the present measure, over
which the representatives have work
ed for so long, will not look much like
its old self after the upper chamber
has remodeled it to its liking.
Then will begin the struggle in con
ference.
Delay Forecast
That the bill will remain unagreed
upon until late in the summer--with
a congressional recess for the con
ventions—ls freely predicted.
In the senate a far more vigorous
tion of Bernard Solumon, a rising
junior, of Wilming! m, as business
manager of the Buccaneer, student
comic; and of Robert H. otafnn. a
rising senior of Bethel, as business
manager of The Yackety Yack, col
lege annual.
Thomas C. Worth, of Raleigh, was
reappointed circulation manager for
all student publications.
Charles G. Rose, Jr., of Fayetteville,
had previously been elected editor of
The Daily Tar Heel, and George W.
Wilson, of Charlotte, had previously
been appointed managing editor.
These two have taken over their new
jobs already, but the old business
managers v. ill finish out thi.s «-rhol
