One inquiry from Leningrad. Russia, requests a publication regarding his breeding of new vegetable varieties. Two letters also came from different parts of India asking for similar information. From November 23, 1934, to January," 25, 1935, Mr. Yeager's correspondence came from Spain, Russia, England, Manitoba. Washington, D. C., Alberta, Ontario, Saskatchewan, New Bruns- wick, British Columbia, and from 35 states of the United States. He had a total of 249 letters of inquiry from the above countries and states during that period of two months. Renefl~ Speedily Apparent The benefit to this country derived from such constructive breeding work becomes readily and quickly apparent. Professor Yeager's Sunshine sweet corn in 1930 was listed by Hughes & Henson in their crop production text as one of four leading verieties in the United States. This was only five years after being made available to seedsmen and growers. The variety was introduced in 1924, but the seed was so scarce that not until the fol- lowing year was enough Sunshine available to be given a thorough com- mercial trial. Four years later or in 1929 it was conservatively estimated that the crop value from this one vari- ety alone was $4,000,000. Of less importance to the country as a whole, but of great importance to Northern corn growers was the intro- duction of Golden Gem, an early yel- low sweet corn of high quality. This variety is inmrestlng to the person not well acquainted with genetics because it was produced from a black corn crossed on a yellow corn, the final selection being a yellow corn. Of in- terest along the same line is a pink popcorn that is being introduced this year. The pink color is a result of cross breeding purple popcorn--Black Beauty--with a wh/te popcorn.

The reason the markers could not be stamped with the altitude when placed by the survey, is that during the survey not all of the figures had been completed. These were later ar- rived at from the records t~aken during survey. One of the markers, the one at Carrington, shows an altitude above sea level of 1587.457 feet. RUDY VALLEE IN COURT New York, February 14.--Rudy Val- lee appeared before the supreme court to prevent Fay Webb VaUee from ob- taining more than $I000 weekly, as Vallee'S incorae $8,000 weekly. When Kay Rhea's father is bad- ly injured in a mine cave-in, she postpones her prospective mar- riage to Jimmy Craig and comes to the city to seek work to help support her family. A friend, Jane Blair, gets her a job as a stenographer at a broadcasting studio. Kay takes an immediate dislike to the two persons under whom she has to work~Harold Blackmer and his secretary, Thee- n~ Morton. Blaekmer, a married man, is unpleqsantly attentive, and Theen~ is generally nasty. Meanwhile, Jimmy has come to the city. Theena shows great in- terest in him. At a party one evening, she monopolizes him, and gloats when Blackmer's atten- tions to Kay enrage Mrs. Black- mer. On the way home, Jimmy and Kay quarrel CHAPTER IX In the full bitterness of their misun- derstanding, Kay and Jimmy parted after hurling hot, angry words at each other. The week that followed was a night- mare to Kay. Theena made no pre- tense of helping her with the work at the office. There seemed to be no end to new contracts and survey charts. And Theena piled the fan mail on Kay's desk ~ mail that must be an- swered with cheerful notes. Notes in which there was no place for heart- break. Every time her telephone rang, Kay would grasp it with eager fingers. Jimmy might call. "Meet you at five, Kay." If only he would! At five, when she left the office, her eyes would search among the cars in front of the building---search hopefully. But the week slipped by without a word from Jimmy. Friday morning, Theena arrived at the office late. '~rhat Jimmy of yours," she flashed at Kay, "surely is enter- raining. I was out with him last night. He talked a lot about you, Kay." Kay did not answer. She couldn't. She couldn't ask, '~?hat did he say, Theena? What did he say?" Just then, Harold Blackrner came in. He stopped and patted Kay's shoul- der. "Isn't she sweet in this black and white?" he said to Theena. Theena smiled craftily. "Very," she replied, and sauntered after Blackmer into his private office. A gloomy Sunday of drizzling rain did not add luster to Kay's dull week- end. On Saturday, Grace had extend- ed an invitation to go with her and Ned to an inn for dinner. Ned had sold a story and they were celebrat- ing. But Kay had refused. Grace and Ned were as happy as two children on a lark. She wouldn't intrude. Kay was glad when Monday mor~- ing came. She was glad to gel; to work. Anything to dull that lonely ache. She attacked the big stack of work on her desk energetically. It would help her forget. In ~the middle 'of the morning, Theena stopped az. Kay's desk. A'~: Blackmer just phoned," she "He's at his apartment in the Lincoln Hotel, and wants these con- tract blanks. Some advertising men are with him and ready to sign up for a big contract. I've called a taxi and want you to trot along with these." She extended the blanks to Kay. "Oh, Theena, won't you go?" Kay begged. 'Tve so much to do here." "I would, darling," Theena respond- ed, "but I've a fearful headache. Jim- roy's giving me such a rush. I'm out late every night. I think I'll go home after I look through the mail." "ru go through the mail," Kay of. fered, ,'if you'll only take these. Couldn't you stop on the way home? The air will do your headache good." Theena's good nature dropped from her like a cloak. "Listen, Kay, are you working un- der me or are you not? There are plenty of girls who would like to have your job. I've no patience with the way you protest about thingsl" Her last words had the effect of a lash. "All right, 1'11 go." Kay jum:4~d up, grabbed the contracts, jammed her hat on and left the room. The taxi was not at the door of the building. While Kay waited a sudden premonition swept over her. She didn't want to go alone to Blackmer's apartment. Perhaps Jane would go with her. She hurried back into the building and went to Jane's office. A busy stenographer glanced up and, to Kay's inquiry for Jane. said: "Miss Blair is not here. She has a had cold. Won't he in at all today. Anything I can do?" "No, thanks." Kay turned away dis- consolately. When she reached the street again, the taxi had arrived. She climbed in and gave the driver Blackmer's ad- dress. She did not see Theena watch ing from a window as the taxi drove away. Theena hurried to her desk. She took the telephone and dialed Ma- ceens. '~Irs. Blackmer, please," she said, her dark eyes triumphant. At the hotel desk, Kay gave the contracts to the clerk. "Will you deliver these to Mr. Black- mer right away?" "Mr. Blackmer left word for you to come up. Elevator te the right. Apartment 1204." Reaching the apartment, Kay knocked timidly on the door. The next moment, it had opened and Har- old Blackmer was bowing her in. "Have you some dictation?" Kay asked nervously. "Not now." Blackmer's smile was ingratiating. '~he men changed their minds. They just left. It was nice of you to bring the contracts." "Then I'll be going," Kay said, mov- ing toward the door. "I've a huge pile of work this morning." "Let the work walt," Blackmer stepped toward her. He placed his arm about her. '~.~et's have a nice lit- h DAY G tle visit, Kay." .He heza her tighter as she tried to pull away from him. "Don't you like me just s little bit?" Both his arms were around her now. He drew her closer, ignoring her struggle to free herself. Neither of them heard the key in the lock nor the swift opening of the door. And then something descended upon them. Something that clawed, pound- ed and shrieked. Kay found herself jerked from Blackmer's arms to face 'the wrath of his wife. "'You-- you--" Naidre Blackmer screamed, "Steal my husband, will you! Get out of here! Get out!" CHAPTER X Kay fled, with Naidre's angry "Get out!" ringing in her ears. On the lawn of the luxurious apartment hotel she leaned against a tree. Somehow, she knew that this was Theena's work. But why? Why did Theena want to do this to her? Theena had Jimmy nOW. She felt she couldn't go back to the office and face Theena's mocking eyes. But if she didn't, she would lose her job. And she must not lose her job. She would have to go back.

Iing and classifying stretched to the breaking point. The nex~ morning, Kay found a brief note on her desk. "Please come to Mr. Alquin's office at once." Mr. A1quin was one of the chief executives at MOX. Kay had seen him often~ a kindly, gray-haired man. Why should he want to see her? Could it mean a promotion? Her heart hammered, and then stood still. What it it meant the loss of her job? But it couldn't mean that. There was no reason why she should lose her job. She had worked hard, on Theena's tasks as well as her own. No, it couldn't be that. Mr. A1quin turned cool gray eyes upon Kay as she entered his office. He picked up a slip of paper and ex- tended it toward her. "Your check," he said crisply. "We won't need your services longer." For a moment everything went black before Kay--a thick, smothering blackness. She fought it off desper- ately. Modern girls did not faint. I They took things on the chin like fighters. Fighters. She'd fight. Jane 'had told her jobs were scarce. She'd fight for this one. "Mr. Alquln," she said, in a clear voice, "I do not understand why I should be dismissecL rve worked hard. I thought my work had been satisfactory." Mr. Alquin made a gesture of dis- missal. "Sorry, but this is final," he It can t he. Kay said through set teeth. And then she told him about her father, about her family. Mr. Alquin seemed genuinely dis- tressed. "I'm sorry, Miss Rhea. Since you have been so frank, I'll be equally so. I'm dismissing you at the request of a client~Maceens--er, Mrs. Black- met. Maceens gives us a profitable contract each year. The lady is adam- ant in her statement that unless you go they will place it with our competi- tor. With conditions as they are, we can't afford to lose the business. It is most unusual, but there's nothing we can do." Kay swayed. "I see." Mr. Alquin rose and patted her shoulder awkwardly. "I'm sorry, Miss Rhea. If you need a recommendation, call me personally. I intend to look into this thing further." Kay left the room and groped her way downstairs, not even seeing Grace EMott until she bumped into her. "Kay!" Grace spoke in alarm. "Are you ill? What's the matter?" answered in jerky gasps. "rye lost my job. Flredi Will you have Jane get my things and bring them to me? I can't go in there where Theena Morton is. I . . ." Grace's arm enfolded her. "Fired!" she said indignantly. "And the way] you work! Oh, Kay dear . . . Kay told her the story, and they] clung together, these two eight-hottr-] a-day girls, in a bond of sympathy and i understanding. Then Grace said huskily, '~o on home, Kay. I'll find Jane. She'll he over. She can leave her desk any time. I don't dare." A few minutes later. Jane flounced up to Kay's desk and began gathering her personal belongings. "Why, Jane, what are you doing?" Theena pretended amazement. Jane glared. "You ought to know. Did it ever occur to you how far- reaching your devilment might he? Kay's fired. It's Naldre, of course. I wouldn't he surprised if you had framed the whole thing. Told Black- mcr that Kay wanted to come to his apartment. Made Kay go. Informed Naldre. You~you devil, with your silly infatuation for a mere boy!" Theena laughed. "All's fair in love, Janie. H precious gets herself into trouble, I can't help it." She laughed again. Jane gripped Theena's shoulder, her fingers digging in. "Stop that laughing," she command- ed. "You've taken the wherewithal to exist from a whole family this time-- and blackened the reputation of an innocent young girl. You've gone too far! As sure as my name is Jane Blair, I'm going to clear this up. And two certain individuals may find them- selves on the outside of MOX wonder- ing why they didn't save some of their unearned salaries to pay the piperV' Without giving Theena a chance to reply, Jane swept out of the room. Theena jumped up and paced the floor. If there was one person in the world she was afraid of, it was Jane Blair. She was so reckless and fear. less.
