Id and last time, married Ginger j
m, a night club lassie, in a
Carolina town yesterday,
rather than face arrest and convic
tion on a charge of breaking the
Mann Act with Miss Drake which
was offered him as an alternative."
The radio commentator paused, for
an infinitesimal second while Mrs.
Anthony Taylor, frozen, stared at
the man whose name she tore, then
he concluded: "Betting on Broad
way and in New Haven is ten to one
the scandal will cost Tony his
father's street railway millions.!"

rose to her feet, white as a sheet, as

He laughed shortly. "You've only
landed a pauper so far but still,
you always did intend to throw
him back into the sea!"
"I'm not going to marry anybody
ever again!" said she, in an odd
voice. "You were right Tony. You
don't have to be rich to be happy. A
person should make his own way
work for his happiness."
Tony gave her a peculiar look, as
if seeing her for the first time. He
had been giving her similar looks
ever since they had come in to din
ner, following that kiss in the
"Maybe I've been wrong," said
Tony. "Suppose a guy falls in love
and wants to give his girl things?
Cars, and clothes, and trips abroad,
and and the moon if she wants
it?" He stared into space as if dis
covering a great truth. "You can't
do that by sharing the wealth!"
"A couple can share romance
and life" she pointed out, passion
ately, "They don't need money!"
"You can't buy mink coats and
snappy roadsters just with ro
mance," said Tony, eagerly. Love

still rather dazed by the swift
"You don't need mink coats and
expensive cars to be happy!" Gin
ger pointed out. With the discove
ry of Tony's indentity as a rich
man's son, had come a deep-abiding
shame for the things she been say
ing the past few days. Partly
because of this, and partly because
she instinctively was against any
thing Tony was for, she, too, had
simultaneously undergone a men
Tony stared at her, and his face
showed a sudden growing delight. .
Do you mean that maybe you
won't want a divorce, after all?"
She stared at him, shocked into
silence by his words and their im
plications. "That kiss" he rushed on,
"did you mean it when you kiss
ed me that way? Or didn't you?"
Ginger sat horrified; for in that
momen she allowed herself to real
ize that she had meant that kiss
and there were no denying what
that meant. However, there was
her pride. Tony had called her a
gold digger. If she admitted she
loved him, now he would think it
was because she had discovered his
father was a millionaire; she could
never hope to convince him of the
truth. Her earlier statements were
boomeranging on her, smashing
her sudden new hopes to bits.
She steeled herself
"A kiss is onlV a handshake, on
Broadway," she told him, a bit un
steadily. And abruptly turned the
subject. "Where's your father

"In Palm Beach, now. Why?"
"Why don't you go to him and
tell him the whole truth? I'll back

The term "big fish" is a relative
one as in the case of the one that
got away, relative to the fisher
man's excitement and the listener's
credulity. But there are in North
America two unquestionable giants
of the piscine world, the White or
Oregon Stugeon of the rivers of
the Pacific Northwest and the
Alligator Gar of the Missippi and
the other rivers flowing into the
Gulf of Mexico. Interestingly
enough these fishes are both mem
bers of the "first families" of fish
the Ganoidei. The ganoids
from the Greek word ganoini,
meaning shining, have large heavy
scales with an outer layer of shin
ing enamel or ganoin. They are
at least partly clad in armour as
the photographs will show.
assistant of State College.
For the period from November
i, 1941, through May 6, 1942, Mr.
Floyd said, farmers of the state or
dered 236,800 tons of limestone
from the Agricultural Adjustment
Agency for use on pasture lands,
hay crops, and small grain. For
the corresponding period of the
previous year, he said, 196,351
tons of limestone were ordered. At
the same time, he declared, 11,471
tons of 20 per cent superphosphate
have been ordered this year.
He urged farmers who plan to
use additional limestone on their
land this fall with small grain
crops to place their orders as
quickly as possible to insure de
livery. "The current transportation sit
uation is making it more difficult to
obtain supplies of limestone with
in a short time after orders are
received," he said. "This situa
tion probably will grow worse as
troops and war materials move
ments place an additional burden
on railroad facilities."
The AAA official pointed out
that, in placing orders for fall de
livery farmers should give proper
consideration to the possible short
age of other materials which now
are going for ; war purposes, and
that needs should be considered in
relation to the war production
Crushed limestone is obtained
from the AAA through county ag
ricultural conservation associations
as grant-of -aid material, and costs
of it are deducted from conserva
tion payments due farmers at the
close of the program year.
