Raleigh, Oct. 6. -The five division superviors of State Highway Prison Camps will hereafter maintain offi ces at the headquarters of each high way division, it was nnounced today by Sam D. Scott, superintendent of Highway Prison camps. Until now these division supervisors have operated from their own homes when ’hev were not in the field inspecting camps. This plan did not work out FO wel l. however, with the result that g&afeaft : ws — iJ, Hw bnd written in a moment of intone* engar that, she waa on* of those poor, dreadful girls. She dried her eye*. She must wake and live with herself tomorrow; as long as she lived. Now she must sleep. She could be honest at least She would write and tell her father all of It. That was part of her train ing too; “My little girl must always tell me everything." She would tell him. Comforted In spite of herself by those Imagined arms to turn to, she slept at last. Writing to him next night, cold and tired, when her work (her bleseed, grueling work) gave her time, was a fresh agony. But a streak of the Huguenot fanaticism that lay deep down In Emilia, as it did In Robin and her father, held her to It—tile dreadful, self-accusing words. She had to. Not to would have been more wicked still. She had to—and the inevitable catharsis of confession lightened her heart a little. She went on with her work, out on her circuit. From morning till night everything waa empty and black and far away, and yet if you thought how you felt, in the rain-drenched jolting hours when the Ford trucks were taking you from camp to camp, it suddenly turned worse, a vague ache which was agony when touched with the finger tip. Caforil. she sup posed; she had never had it before. She wouldn't hear anything from home till she was in Paris again. "See here." said her immediate su perior. eyeing her with friendly, cool understanding, “you're all in. Due for a breakdown If you don't get leave. You go oft to one of those Uttle towns behind Bourbnn-le-Bain where you won't see a soldier except permissionalres, and stay till you’re rested. The army needs that guitar of yours.” She smiled coldly. “The army needs . . . the country needs. . . .“ It was all chilled and strange. She still knew America was fight ing for freedom, but she could not make it the immediate, warm actual ity any more. She did as he said. When she went back to Paris, she arranged for leave, and went. Her father's letter came as she was leav ing the house; she put It in her handbag to read on the train. Her heart nearly suffocated her; she dared not read it now. She dragged her suitcases down the stairs to the taxi. She was tak ing everything: it was hard to get anybody to store anything. She meant to have put back all the money she had drawn from her let ter accredit. Robin was dead now— The taxi creaked Its Along. She hadn't given ipbrielf muc» more than time for the train, J*nd you never knew in war- Ume.'v'fch* didn’t care much. Not «h<re was the signal that notified an air raid. The cabman let her stay In the', cab; it Vas easier. She sat apathetically In It until the *'alj clear” signal sounded, told the man to take her to the. station. The train would bo gone, but it was easier to sit and wait for another than to go home. She sat dully In the sta tion among the tragic groups, men going buck to the front, women and children saying good-bye to them. She hadn’t said good bye at the sta tion to Robin. There was no Dick any more, ftoger-.-Jlog(cr's liindncss. the new plan has been instituted.

Suddenly she wanted Roger more than she had ever wanted anything, Roger to coma and take care of her as ho had al ways done. But Roger waa gone. too. Curioualy enough, her last memory of Manny Rosen comforted her; it amused her faintly, sitting there, try ing not to think of deeper and crueler things. She could see his tall, ungainly Lincoln figure, his swarthy’, irregular face with its long nose and big, sensitive mouth and tragic eyes, his sHm-flngered hand on the edge of the truck, and his passionate promts*— “I got nay gratlfude. Til pay you back some time. Miss Emilia. You kin depend on aoe—” Poor Manny, a helpless cog some where on the battle front, shot for cowardice, probably, before now. But the thought that he had wanted to help her, that he would Still want even If he knew (how he hated Dick!) lifted her a little from her abasement. Finally a train came. Finally it brought her to a small, remote vil lage—not the one she had planned, she had been stupid and gone one beyond. Well, it didn’t matter. All the long row of houses looked grayly alike. She chose one at ran dom, and was taken in; her Ameri can accent and her uniform wero enough for the landlady’s guarantee. She would pay well, ono could see. And she was all worn out. rest would be good for her, poor child. How she managed to crawl up the stairs to the little clean room with the benitier over the narrow brass bed she never remembered. Madame Driaid Drought her up some broth, by and by. All she wanted wns sleep. She didn’t wake until petit dejeuner next morning; was able to smile a little at her tired self in day clothes, just where she hail dropped on the bed Coffee, petit pain, and she Mt refreshed, after she had eaten and undressed and bathed and dressed again. She remembered her father's letter. In the handbag. She could face what he said now, even though he might be stern before the kindly ending—her gather who had taught his children that threadbare, ro mantic phrase which was alive and real to him—“ln our fann.y all the men are brave and all the women pure." She sat down on the edge of the hard, narrow bed in her rose-colored cotton crepe kimono, her hair a golden capo about her, and began to read it. “I will continue to support you. ,1 will find a decent family with whom you mgy live.

SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON (the Golden (Text law bp w2iv. ■..■■*. hbR 1 will walk within my house With (The International Uniform Lesson for October 9 on the above topic is Oen. 50:17-21; Luke 2:40-52, 10:38-42, the Golden Taxt being Psalm 101:2, “I will walk within my house with a perfect heart.”) By DR. mm E. BELL Home is too often the place where folk receive the most attention and show the least appreciation. Business demands that we be at our best, and we often make up for it when we get home by showing ourselves at our worst to those who love us best. If one inquires as to what are the requisites of the idal home the answer is that the first and chief require ment is love. This love should have its adequate basis not only in the phy sical relations of the home, but also in the mental *and spiritual kinship of those who make up the home and family. Joseph's brethren destroyed the happiness of tehir home by let a perfect. Wart.—Psalm 101:2. ting jealousy and hatred creep in and destroy love. The happiness of theli home was restored again through the magnannity of Joseph in forgiving his brethren of the wrongs they had done him. “There’s no place like home” be cause here more than elsewhere love radiates comfort and kindliness to give the home Its own jieculiar atmos phere. Jesus at Home Our homes are immeasureably rich er for that single glimpse the gospel gives us into the humble home of the carpenter of Nazareth which for 30 years Jesus called home. Here dwelt not only love for one another, but that which is even more imoprtant, love for God and the services of God's house. “His parents went every year to Jerusalem at the feast of the pass over. And when he was 12 years old they went up after the custom of the feast.” Religion had' its proper place in Jesus' home Its atmosphere was spiritual It made provision not only PAGE THREE tor the physical and mental develop ment of the child Jteofi as he grew up in hit home, bat for his spiritual development. KmA mm we read of the four-fold de velopment of the child Jesus men tally, physically, religiously and so cielly: ‘‘And Jesus advanced in wis dom and stature, and In favor with God and men.” Home should be more than a “filling station’’ to minister to our physical needs. It should min ister to the development of body, mind and spirit. Jesus’ conduct in the home is our pattern of loving obedience to par ents on the part of the children of the home. Although his wisdom and understanding were sufficient to amaze the religious leaders of his riction, yet he subn.itied Imi.elf to his humble earthly parents as he went down with them, and came to Nazareth. and was subject unto them.” At Home to The home of Mary am' Mxrtha at Bethany was one whore J"st.s made himself at home. Martha how ever. was too much engrossed in the material preparations for Jesus' en tertainment to really make him feel at home with her. Martha was get ting worrted about o:uch preparation. All of a sudden she burst in and and said: "Lord, don't you care that my slater has been leaving n:e to do the work alone? Tell he: to take hold and help me.” But the Lord replied to her: "Martha. Martha, you are unxiuus and agitated about many things. But there is actual need of Just one dish. Now Mary has chosen the good por tion which indeed shall not be taken away from her.” (Prof. A. T. Rob ertson’s translation.) So there is a happy proportion we 'must try no maintain between the material and spiritual needs of the home If Christ is to feel at home with us.
