"Stay outta this." What do you think you are anyway?" "Shut up!" "Wher'd you come from off'n the old oil tanker what came in this mornin'?" As for Geneva Benet, she found herself looking at a leanly ade quate back garbed in a curious coat. It wag gray and had red piped shoulder straps, and on the Strang of the crowd halted her, at the same time exposing, the battleground. In the center of the cleared space Ferguson, powerful and thick bod ied, was wrenching off his coat. Boys and men, rank with fish odors and stale sweat, crowded in. The big oysterman drove a vi cious right at this wiry stranger who was of about equal height. The second combatant ducked un der the blow and at the same time quickly cast loose the button of his er's head was set a Jaunty military uniform coat. His face, she saw, At once the oysterman lurched back with a ludicrous expression of surprise. and said in choked tones, "Unfor tunately, I can't make you take that back and nobody else here will, but I can and will call you a cow ardly liar." She held out both hands and turned to the ever increasing crowd. "Please listen. This man is lying to you. The job is ." "Shut up!" shouted the bully Ferguson. "I'm goin' to make it my job to see that ain't nobody from Solomon's nor Calvert Coun ty goes down to Point Patience.'' The crowd emitted a peculiar un dertone, the kind of a sound one hears when violence is brewing. "Run her out!" somebody called excitedly and the gathering gave an ominous surge forward. "Yeh! Duck her!" Features a-quiver, the girl searched the circle for a friendly face in vain.

I know, I seen her with that Mears guy." Oh.-h-W White with fury, the girl in the shabby tweed suit rush ed forward, and would have struck at her tormentor's bruised looking features had not a singular figure intercepted her quickly and effi ciently. "Just a minute, boys," came the stranger's incisive tone, "this is cap or unfamiliar design, sne caught at his arm. "No, dont interfere," she panted in a fierce undertone, "don't mix in on this. TheyH kill you." "Will they?" Deep set blue eyes that were both hard and bitter, briefly glanced down at her. "You started this," the stranger snapped. "Haven't you got nerve enough to see it out; or are they right about you?" "No! Ferguson lies!" she blazed. "But I" "Then get out of the way" Im patiently, he shook her off and again faced the girl's persecutor. "Are you going to let this young lady talk, or arent you?" Ferguson's answer was a vicious swing at the stranger s jaw. Penned in by the fog, the crowd seemed suddenly enormous, with waterproof hats, baseball caps, sea men s caps bordering the entire visible world. "Hey, fellars, let s give 'em room." : Gangling loafers in rusty blue jersies and tobacco stained dunga rees promptly fell back, "Soak that buttin' in tin soldier," someone yelled. "Whereja" get 'at trick coat?" Beneath her tight gray jersy sweater, Geneva Benet's heart beat even more furiously. Mears had been right. She shouldn't have come to Patuxtpwn on Saturday when bugeyes, pungies and shaloops were in along with oysters, booze and the devil. How would this brawl end ? Merely in battered faces and skinned knuckles or in staccato shots, followed by sudden signifi cant silence? Ferguson, as she well knew, was a terrible rough-and tumble fighter. She was almost by when an eddy Aussie Nurses' Boss lOsborne Cow Completes ixxew umciai uecora was so high cheek-boned as to be almost Indian-dike in cast, and though it was young there were lines in it that ought not to have been there and a dull red scar traversed his jaw from mouth to chin. ' Geneva Benet suddenly found herself inexplicably curious to know why he had wandered to Pat-uxtown. Stand and fight, yuh yellah monkey!" roared the oysterman when the hard bitten young man adroitly dodged a pile driver blow. Tah! Fight! Quit stallin." An oysterman suddenly pushed the stranger off balance thus enabling Ferguson, snarling and red faced, to land a short forearm jab to the side of his enemy's jaw. At the re sounding smack! Geneva Benet flinched and expected to see the slighter figure go over backwards. She had, you see, witnessed all too many fights Since coming to Patux- town "Now y'u got, him Fergie. Kick his ugly face In!" shouted the on lookers. "Go fer his eyes!" No one cried "shame!" since anything from savate to mayhem goes in oyster man fighting. At the deadly glare now playing in the stranger's semi-dazed blue eyes, Geneva Benet felt sick she felt, nay, she knew that something decisive was about to happen. With a scarlet thread of blood1 trickling from a corner of his j mouth, the man in the uniform ' coat swayed backwards, weakly but efficiently parrying his enemy's furious blows until, so quickly that the girl could not follow its motion, the ex-soldier's right hand shot out. At once the oysterman lurched back with a ludicrous expression of sur prise stamped on his sweaty fea- Capt Martha Jane Clement, U. S. Army Nurses Corps, is in charge of all Army nurses in the Southwest Pacific War Zone, with headquarters in Australia. Before coming to the island continent she spent four years at Langley Field, Va. where he founded the hospital. A new record, exceeding the av erage of the Guernsey breed for her age and class has just been completed by a four and one-half year old cow, Lillian oi Garden Creek, of Canton, tested and owned by H. Arthur Osborne. Her official record supervised by the N. C.' State College and announced by The American Guernsey Cattle Club is 12591.3 pounds of milk and 613.5 pounds of butter fat in class B.'--. tures; inexplicably his left arm was dangling limp by his side. Like a comber which retreats only to fling itself forward again, Ferguson gasped and gave ground but all the while fumbling behind him with his good hand. "God Almighty!" came someone's breathless yelp, "look out he's got a knife!" The crowd surged back; fists were one thingi but cold Steel was another. Borne with it Geneva Geneva Benet felt an icy hand squeezing the warmth from her heart. "Cut him open," clamored one faction. "Kick 'im, soldier! He'll knife yer else!" warned the other. The crowd milled and swayed across a pale road made of crushed ovster shells and a half shout went up when the scarred ex -soldier leaped desperately back to avoid a furious slash which missed his jugular by a scant inch. Quick as a recoiling spring the blue eyed man darted in to again deliver a curious chopping blow with the side of his hand. Instantly the big man utter ed a strangled grunt and pitched forward on his face as suddenly as a marionette whose strings have been cut. Fickle as always, the crowd now roared in approbation. Though panting slightly, the vic tor looked about calmly enough, pushed a lock of dark red hair from his eyes and then gulped a long drink from the handiest bottle, "Have another, Mister? Then show a guy how y'u did it." "No, thanks, boys, I'm a bit warm," said the ex-soldier curtly.
