At once cigarettes and cigars
were produced and the air became
blue, first with cigar smoke and
second the things Ian .Gray told
Leonard Holt when he took the
latter aside and read what he called
the Riot Act.
YoU triple-dyed ass! You blith
ering idiot, what's gotten into yout
If you've got to go mooning around
the vob Waldeck girl, for Lord sake
don't be so infernally brazen and
public about it! First thing you
know, Ilya's brother will be pulling
your nose in public, there'll be a
scandal and that, will the end of
your career as a diplomat."
Leonard Holt's handsome pink
features hardened. "Shut up," he
snarled. "Not even you can talk to
me like that I'm free, white and
"You dont act like it," was ths
other's bitter retort. "And if you
haven't got sense enough to save
yourself, I'm going to do what I
en. You owe something to Ilya.
Have you gone crazy t"
For the first time since they had
met during the dark days of 1917
the two men stood glaring at each
other, faces flushed and hands
closed. Then, as usual, the weaker
"Oh, damn it, Ian, don't look at
me like that! I can't stand it. I
I'm queer these days all upset.
I'm sick fed up with the whole
business. Truth is love Lolita-
worship her adore her! I know ,
I'm a cad to say this when I'm en
gaged to Ilya but damn it I can't
help myself she carries one away
like a drug almost!"
Leonard fell silent, staring mis
erably at the tip of his cigarette.
Instantly Ian softened. "Look
here. You heard what was said at
that cocktail hour? This Lolita's
lovely and simple appearing. I'll
grant, but you've got to get grip
on yourself. Don't throw away the
love of a really sweet and clever
girl like Ilya. I tell you she is one
in a thousand and she worships
"That's the worst of it!" sighed
the shorter man. "I feel like a per
fect swine. I've told myself so a
hundred, times a day for the last
two weeks Ilya's so damnably loy
al'.' He raised stricken gray eyes.
"But I can't help myself there's
something about Lolita that just
disorients me, she annihilates my
sense of values I know it's ruinous
to play with her, but I I damn
TRUSTEE'S SALE OF REAL
ESTATE -' :
(By Sustituted Trustee. )
Pursuant to the power and au
thority contained in a certain deed
of trust dated the 28th day - of
December, 1933, executed by Min
nie Boyd (unmarried) to Allan L
O'Neal, Trustee, which deed of
trust is duly registered in the office
of the Register of Deeds of Hay
wood County, North Carolina, in
Book of Deeds of Trust, No. 33,
page 287, securing a certain note
payable to HOME OWNERS'
LOAN CORPORATION, default
having been made for a period of
more than ninety (90) days in the
payment of said note as provided
therein and in the performance of
certain covenants set out in said
deed of trust and demand of fore
closure having been made by the
holds of said indebtedness, the un
dersigned Trustee, having been sub
stituted as Trustee, for Allan S.
O'Neal, said substitution being
duly recorded in the office of the
Register of Deeds
it, Ian, I am crazy with love for
her!" ' : v. :
"You're not," snapped the big
man in evening clothes, the minia
ture decorations sparkling with the
vehemence of his negation any
thing so fierce and quick as this
silly infatuation of yours is bound
to burn out even quicker. Then
you'll wake up to find your career
at an end and the girl you loved
hating the thought of you. Think
it over, Len, is it worth it?"
From the far end of the room
sonded the laughter and voices of
the other men guests who, in a brilliantly-uniformed
throng, had gath
ered to listen to Captain d'Armo
not's latest story. ..V, ,
"Tell me, said Ian suddenly,
"who's that fellow in the dark green
uniform the little fellow with the
long nose and the black mous
tache?" . . .
When Leonard's eyes encountered
that faintly menacing figure, he
stiffened and bit his lip.
"That," said he, is Colonel Sobe
loff , A Bulgarian bird of some sort
who fell in love with Lolita when
she was in Sofia a couple of months
ago. She's told him a dozen times to
stop following her, but he wont.
He's a crazy sort, swears he'll kill
her and himself some day if she
won't marry him." .
"He looks quite capable of it. Re
member, Leonard, a Bulgarian isn't
troubled half so much about killing
a supposed enemy as the next man.
Watch out, and for lord's sake get
back to earth before it's too late!"
The younger man's face lit in a
pathetic admiration. "I will and
you're a mighty good egg, Soldat!"
And Leonard impulsively squeezed
his hand, then Btrode off, ever fol
lowed by the smoldering regard of
the stocky Bulgarian.
"Of all the crazy idiots!" growled
Ian Gray as he unobstrusively ap
proached the group of listeners to
the French artillerman's story.
His attention, however, was not on
d'Armonot's cleverly risque annec
dote as he edged around the circle
until he found himself directly be
hind the dark-browed Colonel Sobe
loff. As he had feared, there was
indeed a certain omninous bulge un
der the Bulgarian's tunic back.
"An automatic," he decided.
"Probably a .32. Well, well." And
forthwith he determined to pay
close attention to the movements
of the short but powerfully built
officer in green and gold.
Presently Ian made an opportun
ity to again address that madden
ingly beautiful enigma who went
under the name of Lolita van wai
deck. Something like a duelist who
approaches the field of honor and
studies his opponent, he viewed the
white clad girl with a thoroughness
and clear headedness that surprise
ed him. But the more he scanned
her un painted, unlined and placid
features, the more utterly at sea
he felt, Lolita von Waldeck seemed
as utterly fresh and unsoiled as
Colebridge's Sea-born Cythera,"
and her eyes, when they met his,
were as clearly blue as the waters
of the Mediterranean.
Could it be this girl who had led
di Valasto to a suicide's grave?
Could this laughing and fragile
creature really have been responsi
ble for that young British diplo
mat's disgrace at Bucharest? It
seemed utterly impossible, yet here
was the morose and dangerous
Sobeloff brooding in the back
ground and here was Leonard in
the act of ruining his career for
love of her.
Suddenly a thought struck him.
All this strange girl's victims, or
near-victims were, in some de
gree, connected with International
affairs. The inference was as ines
capable as it was unpleasant. Sud
denly he determined to see for him
self; so very tell, well groomed
and casual he drew near and pres
ently managed to shake off her per
"You are to be long in Budapest,
Mademoiselle la Countess?" he im
quired. She answered with a charming
little shrug. "Heaven alone knows,
Monsieur Gray. I hope so, tor I
think Budapest is the last truly gay
city in Europe. London is too full
of unemployed, and besides, as some
deep thinker once remarked, the
British always take their pleasure
sadly. Paris has lost her old charm
to become a commercial and busi
ness center, enfin hopelessly bour
geios; Berlin always was cold, bru
tal and dismal; but Budapest"
Ian's heart lifted a little as a
slow smile parted lips that resem
bled scarlett ribbons laid across a
white marble table. Her eyes were
Very direct and somehow determin
On reaching a sudden determi-
tion he said quite clumsily, "Don't
you think it's warm in here. Would
you care to go out into the garden?"
"Is it not still a little chilly?"
"Then does the conservatory ap
peal? It seems a pleasant spot.
He felt her eyes flicker quite sud
denly to his, but was satisfield that
he had made the suggestion in an
entirely natural way.
"Very well," she smiled making
skilful play with the fan she had
substituted for her evening bag.
"I should like it It does look very
restful out there. Why do people
have to talk so much?"

553 Men Of Two
Navy In October
.' .. v . , ' '
At least one-fourth of the 653
men recruited by the navy in North
Carolina durinsr October were in
fluenced by the current navy adver
tising campaign being conducted in
the two states, Lt. Commander Mc
Farland W. Wood, officer-in-charge
of recruiting in the Carolinas, an
nounced in Raleigh this week.
Records reveal that at least one
fourth of October's total enlist
ment the largest number taken in
one month since World War I
joined the navy as a result of the
advertising campaign, while many
other recruits reported that the
ads had helped them decide to join
America's "first line of defense."
The campaign was begun Sep
tember 22 in newspapers through
out North and South Carolina and
"is progressing satisfactorily,"
Commander Wood said. "The
series of nine advertisements,
drawn up by a New York adver
tising agency, is producing defi
nite results in the Carolinas by
showing young; men the many op
portunities offered by the navv."
Most of the recruits in October's
record-breaking enlistment total
who were influenced by the ads
came ; from rural homes because
the campaign is designed to reach
the rural areas of the Carolinas
two of the South's greatest agri
cultural states. Advertisements
were awarded only to newsoapers
of the less than 50.000 population
and the majority of the ads went
to weeklies and semi-weeklies.
According to data gathered dur
ing October, the average recruit
was 19.44 years old, weighed 139.R3
pounds and was 68.36 inches tall.
"North and South Carolina are
continuing to furnish the navy with
healthy, alert young men as it has
during the past years and past na
tional emergencies," commented
The advertising campaign is
stressing the many opportunities
offered Americans by the navy,
Commader Wood said. "The navy
now offers unusual opportunities
tn ambitious men between the
ages of 17 and 49 inclusive," he may
