Very large crowds, including many
freshmen, attended the Golden Belt
Pair, which was held just, outside of
ihe Henderson city limits for four
days and nights, last week, October
23, 24, 25, 20.
The exhibit hall was well arranged.
Some of the exhibits were agricultur
al booths and cooking and canning
displays. 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.
A play, entitled "Call It a Day,”
was presented in chapel by most of
the members of home room three on
Friday, October, 26. Miss Morton, the
room teacher, was the director. The
play pictures a day in a doctor’s of
fice when his assistant is sick, so he
gets his wife to take the assistant’s
place. During the day, all kinds of
patients coitie into the office and
they are all telling their troubles and
past operations. Those in the play
were as follows: Billy Hester as Dr.

“My God,” exclaimed Greenleaf, 1

Blane held Ids electric torch close.
The secret entrance had not been
tightly shut. Someone had come and

confront him, pushed the door open j

fumes which were sucked into the
ventilating hood above. Across a
desk on tho farther side of the room,
the telephone receiver clutched 'n

“Dead,” said Blane after a swift

Greenleaf said in a still voice, "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

Jake. ' You and J, so far- as 1 know,
are the only ones who knew of it.”
“Evidently,” ,< said Blane, “we

Greenleaf nodded sombrely.
"That's so. Wo know now what
we're up against."
Blane began to swear in a low hor

Blane nodded gloomily.

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.

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.

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

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.

She wondered what his vagueness
might conceal. He answered her
“Business, official business,” he
said. “Even at parties we have it

“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
