As It turned out there were but light riltK-idde seats there in that great outrigger canoe, while nothing .ess than an ocean could have nerved u a theatre for that combat. "Only tropical mornings can he an perfect as this," Tom commented as the nix of us. having plunged Into the lagoon and breakfasted, made our way down to the boat hours, where Havla. a great bronzed figure, and I‘otii waited. "Were going out to And us a ■hark and put a rope on him,” I*auo said as she put an affectionate arm aruung the shoulders of the old white haired native who was In charge es the boat house.

The air w.<s heavy with the perfume of blos soms. and the glassy waters of the lagoon mirrored the tall grace of the feathered palms which grew close to the shore. The mellow boom of the surf sounded from the barrier. As we mover! through the lagoon, Pauo suddenly called to us and point.d toward where a little null ASSERTS PLACE OF ! WOMAN IS IN HOME Oavidaon. May 23— “ The enrance *«f women into business and the pro- . has tended to break down J ’he borne, to lower the wages of men. j and to throw them out of employ- j tuent." Rev. Robert F Campbell.

"They can travel | about 30 miles an hour ot top speed. I Soma of the Great White sharks j that spend their time way out In deep water will weigh several tons." "And Havin here is going down und lasso one of those things!” I’llly exploded Incredulously. The morning lieing young she hail reverted to type and was hatless. in contrast to the rest of us. "Well have to And one that la quiet. well fed, lazy and heavy,” Pauo announced. Suddenly Potli shouted and pointed with his imddle to where a column of water was spouting from the sea. The men bent to their paddles and we shot through the pass out Into open oi'ean, near where the spout had been seen. "What is it?” lone asked. "That's a whale." Pauo said, study ing intently. "I bHieve there are two of them. One is a baby!” "Whalos?* 1 asked. "Here?** “Oertainly,” the girl replied, atill studying. "In the days before petro leum wells came In heavily, whaling ships worked these waters steadily. These are the first we've seen in here in some time." She was still watching. "There is something bothering them." she decided. Then it began—that thrilling battle royal. White water boiled aa the mammoth flukes and tail of the mountainous mother began to heat the water with terrific smashes, “Sharks are after that liaby,” Pauo shouted. As we watched we began to see them, these monsters of the deep, with heads the size of kegs. They darted in to attack and spun to es cape the incessant lashing of the mother. There must have been a score of them In that school. Minutes passed and the terrible fight went on. the waves from which were now tossing our boat about. At the moment I think none of us re alized our danger. With tense muscles we watchced with horrified , fascination, puny humans powerless to alter the outcome. “Oh. keep that baby close," 1 heard lone shout nt the fighting mountain. We were all yelling encouragement. We saw that the baby was hanging ' In close to Its mother’s breast, light ing with its little tall and flukes to | protect Itself. On the jia»t of the sharks there seemed to be sorre sort of campaign | underway to draw oft the mother as they cruel snouts high, and Jaws agape. 1 In they came to attack, instantly whirling to emape those lashing tails und flukes. More than once we kiw a shark 1 catapaulted through the air hy that smashing Mack tuif, to sink wounded 1 to th» depths, while one with Its white belly turned to the pin, floated • bobbing on the waves. "I,ook at that one get it.” Holmes screamed as a lucky smash from the i mother's fluke sent a charging shark ■ under. But It was an unequal battle. I.4k* a pack of hungry wolves we watchced ' the sharks split the pair apart, and ■ leap to the attack of the little one. ■ The welter of foam seemed to be get ’ ting red. where tbe whales bled from countless ripe from those savage , shark Jaws.

The Asheville pastor took a part of Psalm 144 as his text, in which David had prayed for national peace and prosperity, for the youth of the land, “that our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as cornerstones, polished after the similitude of a palace,” and that prosperity might re main In the land.

"Well hunt ho sharks today,” she an nounced with finality. ”lA> sharks hum in parks or schools generally." 1 asked Pauo as we headed hack for the lagoon. “Not that 1 have ever aeen one iiefore. hut I have heard tales told hy okl whalers of sharks attacking stnsll whales, Rut this is the first hahy 1 have ever eeen. You can al ways remember you have witnessed one of the rarest battles of the sea ” "Yon don't have any idea any of us will he apt to forget it?" Toni asked. "Those poor whales," lone sympa thized. “l-ord, what a fight they put op.” I breathed. Cut's paws of the morning trades were beginning to ruffle the surface of the lagoon as we put haek through the pass and headed for the boat house. Mack at the palate wo lounged around for a time in the living room. Presently I'aun and l.arry went cut on the porch, and a ittle later headed of? west up the southern iwach toward the native village. The gills went to the room to copy more of the code from the log book. Utato went through to the tower, and Tom followed him up the winding iron stairs ostensibly to practice at his key. Awhile later I went to the boat house lo sit for a time with old Ku tiirio. From that ancient savage that morning came tbe first dear-cut in timation es the grim, forbo.ling character of old Tarea. f>n shore the little native young sters wire busy with their guinea Standing waist deep in the water a native girl, beautifully formed, was washing a garment. Having passed the time of day with the old man I went Into the boat house to inspect the two gas boats with thetr shining varnish nnd sparkling bright work. In one slip lay a trim speed boat with sweet, racy lines; while in another was moored a cabin cruiser. There were also several outrigger canoes, snd a small sailing center-board knock about. Swinging at ancher a hun dred yards out In the lagoon lay the Sequoia. "Quite a fleet of water transporta tion you have here.” I told old Ru tnrio. seating himself. He nodded. Then I tokl him of the hattle of tbe sea we had watchced. “How many people live over there on Tarea,” I queried. Suddenly I looked up to find the old mans bright eyes boring into me. His face wore a peculiar expression. “No one lives thare,” he said quietly, meaningly. “L think Tom and I’ll take the knockabout and sail over there." I said. "I've always wanted to be on a deserted hHand. "Go over to Ooaoe there,” and he indicated the southern Mt of land. •■No one lives there. But keep sea room between you and Tarea, If you are wtae." he said and hts eyes were still on mb >’ •JVhyr For a moment he didn’t answer. Then: "Tarea's ‘tupapau' are the worst tn all the islands." 'Tupapau T "Ghosts. '* he explained aoftly. Tarea's dead don't stay dead. Nu is there, and the tupapau and demons are fierce and terrible. Some who have gone there never came back.” With that the old man fell stlaat. If he hadn't been an desperately in earnest I would probably have enjoyed a good laugh.

CANDIDATES STEP SWIFTLY TO HIGH ON HOME STRETCH (Continued from T*age One.) Fountain’s speeches have probably helped Maxwell as much as Fountain, but they have helped Fountain, too. And they have undoubtedly made a big hole in Ehringh&us* following, even if his managers do not believe it.” There Is no doubt that the Ehring haus managers believe that Fountain senior cadet officers of the regiment and Dr. E. C. Brooks, president of . the college. Pershing’s Poppy General Pershing gets his poppy. Mrs. Frederick C. Williams. Nation al President of the American Legion Auxiliary, pins the first of the Aux iliary's 1932 memorial poppies to the coat of the A. E. F. commander, dur ing a recent ceremony In Washing ton, D. C. The poppy, like the ten million others which the women of the Auxiliary will offer to the public on “Poppy Day,” May 28th, to be worn In honor of the World War dead, was made by a veteran disabled as a re sult of war service. The entire pro ceeds of the Auxiliary's “Poppy Day” sale will go to the aid and ieh of of needy disabled men and their families has made no progress as the result of his recent speeches in which he has so bitterly assailed Ehringhaus and Governor Gardner and tftat they are beginning to be more apprehensive of Maxwell than of Fountain. It is also evident that the Ehringhaus strate gists are becoming somewhat appre hensive as a. result of the support which Maxwell seems to be getting from among the merchants and busi ness men of the State, apparently be cause of Maxwell's vigorous opposi tion to any kind of a sales tax and his opposition to any new taxes of any kind. During the pa«t week. Ehringhaus devoted almost his entire time in his speeches to assailing Maxwell and his platform while his managers sought to clarify Ehring haus' position on the sales tax in a special statement setting forth that he has been and still is opposed to any form of sales tax. The Fountain supporters appear to be more encouraged now than they were a week or even two weeks ago. and maintain that the vigorous at tack which Fountain has made upon both Ehringhaus and Governor Gard ner has not only made him more solid with his supporters than ever before, but has gained him many new votes. Fountain will get a majority over both Ehringhaus and Maxwell In all thj| countfes east <?f Raleigh, win carry., they northwestern (group of counties, probably the southwestern tier,” said a Fountain supporter who has been over almont the entire state within the last few weeks, and whose business brings him into cioee contact with the farmers of the State.

Bowie and Arthur Sim mons falling farther and farther bp hind. judging from the talk in p<t litical circles. Many still think Rey nolds is likely to be high man in the first primary, although within the last few days there has seemed to be a slight increase tn the sentiment for Morrison, with more activity among his followers. The fear on the part of nuuiy that a Republican sen ator will be elected if Reynolds is nominated, because of Reynolds' op position to prohibition, is undoubtedly helping Morrison in many sections, especially where the sentiment is de cidedly dry. Morrison's speeehse and conferences with his friends and workers this past week have also helped him. it is agreed.
