and small, firmly rounded chin
which struck the silent watcher
as altogether delicate and delicious.
Above the : cameo-like features.
a sleek aureole of ash hued hair
caught the moonbeams and entang
led them therein.
Feasting his eyes on that exquis
ite moonlit loveliness, Ian remain
ed silent as, for a long moment, the
girl remained motionless as any
statute. On more careful observa
tion he noted that the girl's barely
perceptible cheek bones were high
er than usual, giving to her face a
faintly, foreign cast that was infi
Fearful of startling this lunar-
illumined apparition, Ian remained
quite still, studying with a connois
seur's appreciation, the fragile
beauty of her who, though less than
thirty feet away, was undoubtedly
quite unconscious of his presence.
Suddenly he noticed the glimmer
of something on her cheek and with
a sharp pang of alarm realized that
something was sliding over her
cheek like a fugitive drop of quick
silver. Another appeared and then
another. Ian felt a sense of out
rage it was incredible that such
a moon-silvered goddess should
weep. There was something quite
ghastly about the way she stood
there weeping silently, and he
fought down an absurd impulse to
spring up and make an offer to
solve her troubles.
. With a quick, deft motion like
that of "a fish darting just below
the surface of the sea, the girl sud
denly dropped her small patrician
head and two slender and long fin
egred hands appeared, clutching an
evening bag set with rhinestones.
She had just opened its jeweled
clasp, when from the depths of the
great house sounded a man's voice,
calling in low tones:
Lolita, Lolita, wo sind sie?"
Ian, now wide eyed and thorough
ly alert, did not miss the convulsive
stiffening of that slender body, nor
the way the softly-curving nether
lip was tucked into her mouth, even
less did he miss the indescribable
look of misery which contorted the
girl's lovely features. In that ex
pression he thought to read both
fear and despair.
"A moment, please, I will come in
directly. It it is so peaceful here."
The girl spoke over her bare and
rounded shoulder in fluent German,
dabbed at her eyes with a frothy
lace handerkercnief. In apparently
guilty haste her fingers next flew to
her compact and in another instant
she had skilfully repaired the dam
age wrought by those inexplicable
As suddenly as the turn of a ma
gician's card the blonde vision was
gone, and only a black interval in
the tjalms was before lan s Dewn
dered eyes. Ah! He glimpsed
her glittering ball gown once or
twice throueh the intersections of
the palm fronds, but then she was
"Well, may I be crowned! 11 mat

nerfecL exauisite beauty 1 11 have
to meet her. Wonder who she is?
What did that man call her?"
He sat bolt upright with a start
that flicked the ash from his cig
arette into a watering pot to make
a minute hissing sound.
"Lolita! It couldnt be." In. a
mild mental turmoil he laughed to
himself. "How absurd there are
many women called Lolita." Still
obsessed with purity of that moon-
revealed profile, he told himself
that the girl who had just left could
not possibly be the conscienceless
and practiced intriguese who was
charged with wrecking the lives of
at least three men. "Can't be the
same," he decided as he got up,
"Just the same, I'd better get in my
ground work before the crowd ar
rives." So deciding, he grinned a
thoroughly boyish grin and ground
out his cigarette under his heel be
fore starting for the door.
"Now what the devil could have
gone wrong? ' Bet her canary died
To his disappointment he found
that quite a number of other guests
had put in an appearance and that
already the boyishly slender young
beauty was attended by three or
four eager gallants who made a
brave showing in their gay and col

36 Percent Drafted
Men Have Hi School
Education Or More
The high type of intelligence
among the men being inducted into
the armed forces through the
selective service, according to Gen
eral J. Van Metts, state director
revealed by a recent war depart
ment analysis, shows that 26 per
cent of the trainees inducted into
the army since last July have a
high school education or. better.
Army standards, the director
pointed out, require education
equivalent to the fourth grade in
grammar school. In this connec
tion he cited that examinations of
trainees at army reception cen
ters have shown that 91 per cent of
the men recruited by selective ser
vice have had a grammar school
education or better, and that more
than one-third have completed high
school or college courses.
Statistics compiled at National
Selective Service headquarters,
and recently announced by Presi
dent Roosevelt, show that only 5
per cent selective service regis
trants who have been examined tor
induction into the army have been
disqualified for lack of sufficient
education. Even that 5 per cent
revealed as lacking the equivalent
of a fourth grade grammar school
education is a condition not de
sired by the American people, it
was pointed out.
