It seems to me a very unkind idea, and not very wise.” Alysia jumped up and shut her bureau with a thud. *Tve sold Reggie for good food. the use of a town house, a car, and my accounts settled for me every aow and then. For ease and com fort, in other words, and I shall never have a happy day again." Etta said nothing. -or course he’ll marry the woman. Tt’a the only way. I shall always hate myself—and him. Oh, curse money! Curse it!” I thought you wanted more ot It,” Etta said with a smile that wtu frankly satirical. “But as to Rfggie trying to separate Mrs. Burn ham and John, if she loves him she wgn*t look at Reggie. And if she ciOM let Reggie w’heedle her away fpocn John, well, wouldn’t it be just as well for him to find out. before mnrrying her that her love wasn’t worth having?” *TT«u always can find some smug reason for doing anything.” Alysia squinted in her chair.

You’ve de rided that it’s worth while giving up Haggle for the sake of staying on hare, living in John’s house. Hav iiY decided it, stick to it. You'll spoil everything if you go.” *IWs all very well for you.” her sister fairly tore the Bradshaw be tween her groping fingers, “it’s I wbo suffer.

But this other lit tle simpleton, oh, she’ll never have seen anything so handsome and so marvelous! He sweeps you off your feet, Etta, with that voice of his.” “He may sweep the widow off hers.” Etta conceded, "and after all. there’s no harm in Reggie. He would make a rich woman quite a good husband. The pity is. that !ike Becky Sharp, he needs £5.000 a year to he good on.” “If only there were some other way!” Alysia said. "Short of waiting till Aunt Norah has given John the £30,000 she writes of as her wedding gift to him, and then killing him off at once, I can see no way,” Etta said pleasantly, “and somehow one doesn’t feel like committing murder even for the sake of keeping Reggie in the fam ily. But to be serious, there may be no marriage. There’s Lady Ida to reckon with, too, you know She’s seemed quite determined on getting John back. And what she’s deter mined on getting " Etta’s un friendly smile finished the sentence. "Personally I should have waited, before sending Reggie off, to see what she would do.’’ “Oh, Ida!” Alysia fairly snorted. "She’s no earthly chance of getting John back. She had him at her feet once and he got up again and walked away. When a man does that ” “I’ve often wondered why he did do it.” Etta murmured with retro spective curiosity. "If he did. I’m not so sure that there wasn’t some thing else between them—not love, but business ” ‘Same thing with her!” snapped Alysia. Etta gave a reproving shake of the head as she hurried off in answer to a telephone inquiry. It was two days after she had sent off her letter to the Naylor sisters, and Lady Tait was installed in the hotel lounge for the first time since her accident She looked about her with the vivid interest of one who had not expected ever to see a lounge again. After all, she was over 70. But the present day 70 has plenty of fight and pluck. Silver-haired, black-browed, slender, handsome, energetic, she had come through with flying colors, and now, barring a limp, and a liking for chairs, was (Copyright, 1834) HENDERSON, "(N. CJ DAILY DISPATCH, FRIDAY, APRIL 6, 1934 very much her old despotic self again. To any one else, or to her at any other time, Vichy at this hour is in supportable. The papers had just arrived from Paris, and each vendor was shouting the name of his sheet in the peculiarly penetrating French twang. “V’la La France!” “Via L’lnlransigeant!” reached her most clearly in the national datiy Eisteddfodd held outside and around the so-called Parc of Vichy, A moment later and the most pene. trating howl of all cut through the others. It was Le Matin. Its ven dor even managed to make himself heard through the hooting of the motors, which consider it a point of honor to sound their horns at their loudest when rushing through Vichy. Lady Tait picked out a macaroon from the plate and frowned. It was a most excellent macaroon. Such as only seem to grow in France. Grudgingly she admitted that much. But she regretted having come. Vichy wafer is all very well when drunk away from the springs with which she believed it to have no con nection other than name, hut she de tested the place itself She was not inclined to be pro-German, but when she compared French and German spas, her heart warmed to the Teu ton. Her English doctor hadn’t wanted her to come. She had thought this insularity. Now she called it wl*- dom. The French doctor to whom a friend had given her an introduction as one of the leading men there had just been in. Lady Tait’s aquiline nose quivered with indignation. To stand behind her, put both his arms around her suddenly, and press his two outeurvin£ thumbs hard into the center of her waistline, and then look grave because she gave a small howl of pain, was really not cricket. Lady Tait was positive that Doc tor Precheur would have shouted a great deal louder than that, if she had suddenly tried it with him. And then to talk about her solar plexus needing toning up, and to write out fussy ordinances for hot spinal shower baths and rubbings.

Election For 4th Follows Primary (Continued from ease one.) the governor to call a special primary for the nomination of candidates for an unexpired term in Congress. But it is also agreed that the district oemocratic or Republican committees do not have authority to select a. can didate until after the filing time or after a primary. The statute directing that the gov ernor must call a special election to fill a vacancy caused in Congress, does not specify any given time with in which it must be called. As a re sult, it is known that the governor Is now being advised to delay the spe cial election until after the June 2 primary. In this way, any candidates who want to may seek the nomination in the primary. If a second primary is necessary, it may toe held on June 30. Then the district Democratic com mittee could meet ard nominate the candidate that won the nomination for the regular term in the primary as the candidate for the unexpired term in the special election, which could he held the latter part of July or early in August. Since it is expected that Congress will not be in session for more than a few weeks longer, it is held that it will not matter if the vacancy caused •by Representative Pou’s death re mains unfilled for a few weeks lon. ger. The current belief is that the situation would toe greatly complicat ed if a special election should be held for the unexpired term before the June 2 primary. RACE TOCONGRESS Some Prospects, Including B. H. Perry, of Hender son, Definitely Out KITTRELL UNDECIDED Says He Will Determine His Course By Week-End; Only Three De finitely In the Contest Thus Far Elimination of a number of pros pects in the fourth district congres sional race is fast nairov, ing the list of prospective candidate i who will seek to succeed the late C >npressman Edward W. Pow in the national House of Representatives. £>o far there arc only three avowed candidates who have actually an nounced. Jere P. Zollicoffer, of Hen derson, was the first to make formal announcement of his intentions, after Mr. Pou’s death. He was followed yes terday by Harold D. Cooley, of Nash ville Palmer E. Bailey, of Raleigh, v/as a candidate against the late con gressman even before his death. B. H. Perry ,of this city, who had been mentioned as a possible can didate, said definitely and positively today that he was not and would not be a candidate J. C. Kittrell, who has also been prominently mentioned, said he would make a definite de cision before the end of the week as to whether or not he would get into the fight. Mr. Zollicoffer already is touring the district soliciting support, and said he was much encouraged over the response he had found. He said he had been l shown many courtesies and received tentative promises of support' everywhere he had been. It appeared possible today that Wake county would have no candidate other than Palmer Bailey. J. M. Broughton a»id John W. Hinsdale, both of whom had been mentioned as possibilities, have definitely removed themselves from the race. Indications today were that there would hardly be more than four or five candidates for the place. George Ross Pou, son of the late congressman, and exe cutive director of the State Highway and Public Works Commission, is ex pected to he an entry into the con test within a few days. Team Captained by Ft’ed Hight Winner; Order Sends Orphans to Home The “side” captained by Fred Hight won out in a membership contest over Pat Hight’s “side” in the Junior Order, it was announced today, fol lowing the close of the contest with the council’s meeting last night. The contest has been a spirited one with a large number of members being added to the order. At last bight’s meeting, it was re ported that the order had succeeded in placing three orphans in the na tional home of the order in Tiffin, Ohio. The council set April 17 as the date for the presentation of a flag to Clark street school with the West End 'School being presented a flag on April 22 with appropriate exercises at both presentations. Fred i Higtyfc and Pat Hight were ap pointed as a to jleeide the itime and place of the supper for the order.' ... -* Rural Churches GRANVILLE CIRCUIT Rev. C. L. Spencer, pastor. Mt. Carmel church.

Now that the PWA has approved part of the first request and has granted $23,000 to be used for the pur chase of school bus bodies, both Mar tin and Dr. Baity are confident that the remainder of the grant, as well as the larger grant of $120,000, will eventually be appioved and that a total of $500,000 will thus be available within the next two years for the replacement of old school buses. This will not be sufficient, how ever, to purchase all the new buses that are really * needed, Martin said, pointing out that of the 4.500 buses now in use, at least 2,000 should be replaced. If it is found that the Em ergency Relief Administration will positively agree to make up any de ficit in the school appropriation need ed to pay teachers this year, the school commission may decide to buy $1,000,000 worth of new school buses and then get the balance needed to pay the teachers from the Federal fund $50,000,000 already set aside to assist State public school systems. But this will not be done, Martin said, until it is definitely Known that the relief administration will grant _ ' , • \ . . ajjljfll rajjjgk WW' C, ' l ■ a * Ig 4 • ■—. - ■ '/W !■% ' 4’'/ f•• ••; 4"i'-e 4-w -• >V*. a-_' MBW V• • •" L. •' SWHM }• J .
