The Midway was enjoyed by every one and some of the rides were the Chair-Plane, Caterpillar, Linyy Loop, Tilt-a-Whirl, and two iForris Wheels. The sideshows and other entertainments were placed around the midway. Free acts and fireworks, given every night, also drew many people. A few of the Freshmen boys who belong to the Boy Scouts stayed at the fair grounds all the time *hat. it was possible. They helped take up tickets for the rides and shows, pa trolled the grounds, and did other things to make the fair a success.

There was lio sound within but from under the tloor came a thin wafer of light. “Door's bolted,” said Greenleaf.! “\Y e'll have to go in by the secret ; entrance.” Downstairs again and up another j stairway, a flashlight turned on the j secret lever which opened the door ! “My God,” exclaimed Greenleaf, 1 •It's been used!*’# Blane held Ids electric torch close. The secret entrance had not been tightly shut. Someone had come and ; gone iii those irreparable minutes. Greenleaf, guessing, what would confront him, pushed the door open j • gnd entered. The room was bright ly lighted! .. The vessel over the Buh t sen burner still gave oft’ its brown fumes which were sucked into the ventilating hood above. Across a desk on tho farther side of the room, the telephone receiver clutched 'n liis d'end hand, lay the body of Cap tain Bill 'Martin. “Dead,” said Blane after a swift Inspection. "Right through the brain, jle never knew what bit him.” Greenleaf said in a still voice, "He saw it coining and tried to give me the rest. The message broke off. That’s when he saw the gun. He Said two words and then I heard the shot, and the crash of the fall.” Carefully he searched around and under the body and in the pockets. “Os course, the letter is gone. That’s what they were after. But who, Blane, knew about that en trance? I never told even Bill or Jake. ' You and J, so far- as 1 know, are the only ones who knew of it.” “Evidently,” ,< said Blane, “we , kidded ourselves. Smart work on ; the part of someone.” Greenleaf nodded sombrely. "That's so. Wo know now what we're up against." Blane began to swear in a low hor rible voice. Greenleaf listened im patiently. “Sure we’ll All them full of holes. If we ewn. or bring them before a firing squad which will he belter. But—” He looked at Blane. “Yes, what?” Blane asked. "We’ll have to shut this up some how. We’ll give it out that Bill was called away on some secret commis sion. We can't have our work upset and clues spoiled. What do you think?" Blane nodded gloomily. "His wife?” he asked. "She’ll have to know, of course, but we can ask her to keep it quiet for a while. Patriotic duty, it is a patriotic duty.” Blane cleared his throat. He said huskily, “you’re right, of course. But 1 hate —he was game—he ought to have credit. Everyone ought to know.” Greenleaf nodded. “Yes. 1 feel that way. Later we ll do him all. the honor we can. Now it’s up to me to retrieve a mistake.

It was of the first importance—” “Take It easy,” said Blatie. “You’ve got no call to blame your self. It's one of those things. We have to take our chances, all of us." “But preventable things—” "Yes," said Blane, “and if you'd been here they'd have got you both. Then where'd we all be? Have you thought of that? Pull up. We'll make it up to poor old Bill. He won't hold it against us that we didn’t know everything, couldn’t foresee everything.” * * * Joel's new party dress was a mul berry colored silk. She laid it ten derly on the bed and looked at it with affection before she put it on. Os herself in it she was more critical. Too dark, she thought. Beside the countess she would seem dark in deed. But probably she wouldn’t be beside the countess except perhaps for a moment. It. would be a swell affair, no doubt, with a lot of the Washington bigwigs and no one would look at her, except perhaps Mr. Greonleaf. And if he looked at her at all it would be as a secretary only. She rather wondered why -*e had accepted the invitation, for she guessed that parties, dances espe cially, bored him. No doubt it w r as to catch a glimpse of the countess. And she a married woman. A woman was only interesting to some men when she was married, a rather improper state of affairs. she thought, though perhaps interesting for the women. I She was all dressed and ready i when lie called. He’d not like to | wait, so she was down the stairs two [•minutes after the maid inelegantly | announced, “He’s come. Miss.” Greenleaf was standing contemplat ing a bad portrait of one of Mrs. Harris’ aristocratic ancestors. He carried a broad-brimmed felt liat in his hand, and her heart sank. He turned, and she saw that he was in evening dress and looked better than she had feared. Someone should tic his ties for him , though. His was slightly askew. She thought of of fering to straighten it but decided hotter not. "You’re prompt.” he said. “Effi ciency." r He did not smile, however, and his ’ 'voids seemed mechanical, as though his thoughts were somewhere els®. The beautiful mulberry silk via mum number of points, and it is hop ed, as soon as possible, to require a minimum number for the *pupils to graduate. The purpose of the point system in our activities would be to develop a talent in particular phases of extra curricular work without straining the mind or body of the individual, and to enter into school activities. The de tails of the plan will be worked out. by a committee. THE GIRL’S GLEE CLUB With all the promising material the ' Girl's Glee Club has, it is certain to have a very successful year. This ■ > ear the club, as a whole, is going 'to ; have more voice in its precedings. The j officers elected arc: President. Alice 1 LTarrison; vice-president, Anne Mills; I Secretary, Josephine Martin; Librar i ians, Jeanne Dunn, Margaret Candler. ! The club consists of thirty-four girls H-ifaily wasted on him. He helped her into the taxi, di rected the driver, and got in beside her. Why didn't he say something- Instead he sat preoccupied. She made conversation because she was ill at ease. • “Sorry Captain Martin has been called away?” he repeated after her •‘Oh. yes. of course.” He looked out of the window' and was silent. Then, “Fn this business a man’s likely to be called away any time." “It’s a secret where he’s gone?” she asked. He looked straight ahead ae though he hadn't heard. She thought it rather foolish thal she shouldn't know where Hill had gone. As though she would tell Probably it didn’t matter anyhow and was just a part of the official way of doing things. Men seemeo to like that sort of thing, it was a con\ ention of the game they played. Jake said war was a game, too, and she had been patriotically indignant. Yet his words had stuck in her mind. She wondered what he would be like at a. party. Awkward probably, but he would be entertaining. Greenleaf said abruptly, “Sometime tonight, if I stand In a doorway and nod to you, 1 wish you’d make your excuses to your partner and come out of the room. I may want you. It will be late probably.” She wondered what his vagueness might conceal. He answered her thought. “Business, official business,” he said. “Even at parties we have it with us. But I hope you have a good time before that.” “I’ll gladly give up the dancing,” she began. But he said brusquely that she shouldn’t. It was part of her job to dance. j She resented that. To appear at the dance as an official duty was quite another thing than to go for pleasure. She felt rather dashed. Yet it was a part of the way things were done in Washington. All these functions were only the glittering surface. The young people prob ably liked them, but to older people they were only official duties. She’d never be like that, never. When she ceased to enjoy dancing and the in toxication of bright lights and that sort of thing, she'd know life wa» over. 1 ctq ms oosTOfjjspm - as follows: Firsts Maxine Aulbert, Ruth Burton, Peggy Cawley, Rowena Daniel, Jeanne Dunn, Lucille Finch, Livy Harris, Alice Harrison.
