But she loved Pat . . . even though she didn't like his ugly expression, or the harsh sound of his voice, or the manner in which he grabbed Tony's arm. It was a Pat Thayer she had never before seen, and she felt vaguely disturbed. And finally Pat Thayer spoke, his words freighted with fury. "Up to now, Tony, I've played the game your way. So long as you keep out of my affairs, I'll continue to play it so. But If you want trouble, you'll have it and plenty. That's a warning." "Will you do what I ask?" she inquired steadily.

A hundred and casual observer would have consid ered him well formed, but rather In cllned to slenderness; never suspecting the powerful muscular development beneath his clothes; nor the superb synchronization of those muscles with a keen and alert brain. Nor was he handsome in a classic sense. Like his sister. Ivy, he was Intensely blond rather Norse In His cheeks were pink and type. boyish ; his eyes the blue of a spring than a sixty-five- loose-fittin- g sky. Every person In college was Larry's friend, or wanted to be. The fresh men who took English from him this year tdored him. Frankly, he considered himself a rather poor teacher and was delighted that his freshmen liked him so well that they studied reasonably hard and did not confront him with the horror of dunking anyone. There wasn't a boy or girl of them who wouldn't and didn't work his head off for 'Fessor Welch. But Commencement marked the end. Today that Idea struck Larry more forcibly than ever before.

HOW TO STOP A COLD an Illustration: In a great textile mill of New England, the workers clamored for better conditions; they wanted shorter working hours; they wanted assurance that they would not be dismissed without notice; they wanted certain agreements with the owners as to the rates of pay, and they sought an agreement with their employers to reach these under standings through a committee of their own numbers. The employers turned a deaf ear to the proposals and would not even discuss them. A strike was the alternative which the workers offered. One might say that was a private matter and that the government had no right to mix into it But the Constitution's preamble says that the government is, among other Surely, things, "for the people." here was an Instance where some thing could be done for the people, for workers and employers alike. The Department of Labor did mix Into the controversy. It sent several men to the scene. They lis tened to the grievances of the work ers and to the statements of the employers. They suggested ways out, one after another, until they were able to get a committee from the workers and a committee from the owners to sit In the same room.
