listened intently as Sands spoke.
"I'm sorry, Dr. Bailey, but it
is our duty to question everyone
in the house. As you know, I've
tried to be as brief as possible
with Miss Sheen."
"And driven her almost into
hysterics!" Dr. Bailey had his arm
comfortingly about Miss Sheen,
who sat with lowered head sobbing
softly. "Why don't you police
look for a motive instead of try

Sands had taken out a package
of cigarettes. Dale helped himself
to one, causing Jardin anotner
grimace of disgust. .

Dale as he lit his cigarette. "Any

shows how high-voltage electric lines
crisscross the country carrying power to
busy war plants and to 27 million homes.
HERE is the greatest electric transmission

hu anything like it. The famous British
"grid system" could be dropped into one
small section of it. It carries more power
than all die Axis countries combined.
This nation-wide network was put to

other Americans. Almost til of it was
built on the savings of the same people
it serves by the business managements
of America's 400 electric companies.
Did you ever wonder why American

lead the world? There's a good reason
because it one of the things we're
fighting for. '

to work when and where he wants, with
