You could hare cut through
the' atmosphere of Dick’s studio
with a knife, the air was so thick
with conflicting emotions. They
were such mixed emotions that,
though the hysteria rose again
in Ellen's mind, she couldn'
even laugh. It wasn’t possible
any more to do anything so sim
ple as to ISugh!
(Continued next week)
Dick had been very quiet for a
few minutes, but although El
len struggled to be free, his
hands weren’t relaxing their
hold, not a particle.
“You’re not leaving this stu
dio, not in this condition,’’ he
told her. “What’s it all about,
youngster, anyway? Did you
have anything to drink last
night? Answer me that!"
Ellen tried to master this bus
iness of nerves. If she didn’t.
Dick wouldn't let her go. She
“Of course, I didn't have any
thing to drink,’’ she said, almost
gently. "I never drink. Don't you

“Be still!" roared Dick. Dike
most men, his helplessne.ss had
the effect of angering him.
Ellen, there in Dick’s arms,
wanted to scream at them. She
wanted to call Claire ug’.y names,
and she’d never wanteil to tail
anyone an ugly name, before.
This bantering, when her whole
future was at stake! For if Tony
came up searching for her—how
could she explain things? These
arms—Dick's arms—that held
her? How could she say any
thing in the face of this scene?
“Oh, Dick,’’ she begged, “tet

don’t understand. I’ve got to
keep it. Let me go. now—and
I’ll call you on the phone, to

in the morning and tell you all
about it. You'd not try to keep
me, if you knew. When you
know, you’ll say it’s all right—’’
Dick was nuzzling his Chin
into the hair at the top of her
head, with a movement unex
"What I'm afraid of, hone^^’’
he said, “is that you’ve gone’and
got yourself into some bad sort
of a scrape. Maybe it would be
better if you told me now. I'll
kick them out, Claire and San
dy, it you like. I'll have some
dinner .sent in tor you, and yqu
can get all calmed down."
But Ellen was crying, now.

desired information — “Is the

ditched me for, last night ?’’
The time for evasion—some
of it, at least—had pas.sed.
“Yes,’’ sobbed Ellen.
"Who,” it was Dick now. “who

Suddenly she was more tired
than she had ever been in all of
her life—and older, too.
“His name is Tony Brander,"
she said, “.\nthony Brander. the

Claire yawned. The yawn was
far too elatforate to be plaimible.

only an echo to the knock upon

Claire was the one who called
a summons. It wasn’t her studio,
but she was like that.
And then Tony walked into
the room. There was a narrow

The object of the visit to Ra
leigh. however, was not seeing
the boys. He came to confer with
Mrs. Thomas O’Berry, who is a
very important woman whether
one talks politics or relief to
her. Mr. Doughton, as head of
the ways and means committee
in Washington, must look after
finances and Mrs. O’Berry’s de
partment needs a lot of it or
them. She is making ready to
go through the winter and the
government burden is to be re
duced all that can be done with
out serious damage to the relief
work. As many times mentioned
in the state news the state relief
agencies are being consolidated
and the expense of administra
Doughton l-s Popular
Mr. Doughton is getting re
ports on his possible candidacy.
He is a very popular man and
should he enter the contest he
would change the whole political
landscape. While he appears to
be much nearer a positive state
ment on the subject than Clyde
Hoey is, the Shelby man is no
lo.ss likely an aspirant. The dry
people, particularly the United
Dry Forces and the Women's
Temperance union groups, are
very anxious tliat Mr. Hoey de
clare himself. It is their desire
that as many resourceful drys
be nominated for public office
both in Raleigh and in Washin.g-
ton as it is possible to name. .Mr.
Doughton voted for the repeal of
the 18th ainendmenl. The dry
forces are a bit more afraid of
the leadership of a repealer than
they are of a well-committed
There would be other issues,
particularly of economics, and
Mr. Hoey. who admires .Mr.
Dou.ehton very much, would be
disadvantaged but little on ac
count of his pa.st attorneyships.
The business people of the state
would give him a big vote. The
labor crafts would be strong for
Mr. Doughton. The representa
tive’s continuing opposition to
the sales tax would add labor
votes to his cause. The situation
now is about this; If Hoey does
not run. Doughton will. I f
Doughton does not become a
candidate. Hoey will. If both are
not now candidates there is a lot
of very bad guessing.
Mr. noughton’s visit here this
week looked much more guber-
uatorial than it ever has. His
pugnacious pronouncements were
noted. He never has said he will
run and he never has said he
won’l. But heiv is a tip on the
farmer. When anybody goes to
misrepresenting him he calls the
misrepresenter. N’ohody who sa.v.s
he will rnii has been called. And
there are hundreds of voters
who have asked other voters not
to get themselves committed for
