PER COPY ASSOCIATED PRESS LEASED WIRE SERVICE MASON CITY IOWA SATURDAY OCT 11 1930 UNITED PRESS AND INTERNATIONAL NEWS SUPPLEMENTAL SERVICE NO 315 OPENING INSTALLMENT IT WAI UKKEIT STORY BY JOHN HAWK 19S3 T3O RELEASED BY CENTRAL PRESS ASSN tNC CHAPTER 1 A LADY to see you sir Robin Smith looked incredulously at the elderly housemaid standingan the doorway of his small room He was a young man of about twentyseven tall and slender with pale face light gray eyes and sandy hair which looked gray and blended with the pallor of his face His strongest feature was his nose which was aquiline and firm yet sensitive as a poets nose should be For Robin Smith was not only a poet but a good poet whose star was only just beginning to rise in a world slow to acclaim followers of the Muses It was surely not extraordinary that a lady should call on a young poet Yet Robin Smith diet look incredulous It was quite obvious that he was not used to having lady callers and of all times early in the morning He stared at the housemaid who seemed to share his astonish ment and finally said Not a lady Yes sir A real lady sir she affirmed And she said Mr Robin Smith1 Couldnlt be any mistake about it sir She came in a car all swankylike sir Robin Smith rose impetuously from his chair and hurried to the window which looked out on Meckleuburgh Square With its noble old trees now in the full bloom of June it was one of the survivals of old London at its best He loved the square with its handsome Regency houses which had seen better days and for him the whole neighborhood had the pleasurable associations of a recent historical past There just beyond the trees invisible because of the foliage was the squat stately structure of the Foundling Home with its fineHogarths in whose chapel the composer Handel gave the first rendering of a new composi tion and where from time immemorial children have sung Christmas carols to the delight of visitors from far and wide And just around the corner in Doughty street Charles Dicirens had lived and worked But it was not the square that in terested the poet at this moment Indeed he looked straight down and saw a long luxurious car a Rolls Royce surely he said to himself At the wheel he discerned the seated motionless figure of just such a wellgroomed chauffeur as befitted the dignity of such a car But all he could see of its owner was the rim of a bat a filmy shadowy cre ation more than half hidden within the open broad doorway of the house Heavens Could it really be for me he murmured But this he realized was no time Ifor reflection It was rude to keep lady and such a lady waiting first impulse then was to run Vdown and indeed he was already on the landing when he suddenly paused and reconsidered A hard expression came into his gentle eyes as he turned to the maid and said Youth INDIANA MAN IS ask the lady to1 come up Marys turn to hesitate plainly can you ask a lady who has come in such a car up three flights of stairs and into such a room As if reading her thots he turned onthe servant with unaccustomed brusqueness Do as I say Mary Ask the lady to come up here Shellcome if she really wants to see me Mary gave Robin Smith a look as if she thot him out of his mind and obediently ran down stairs to impart the poets message As for Robin Smith he seated himself in one of his two chairs and with enigmatic satisfaction while awaiting his visitor It was nice for a change having lady vis itors come to seek him instead of running after them as he had been doing in the past After all he was getting more into the limelight as one of Englands really good poets and there was no reason at all vyhy elegant ladieswith plenty of time on their hands shouldnt seek him out No reason at all His eyes shone with a naive pride He might have been one of the great princes of commerce with men and women at his beck and call instead of a poor poet who with the help of art patrons managed to eke out a bare living Ho he thot as he turned tc a manuscript and pretended to reac It it made a fine sound to hear the music of dainty feminine footfalls up the stairs coming toward him and for him it was a delicious sen sation to take in the ascending faint aroma of a delicate perfume It was an idea for a poem Yes ag soon as the lady left he would certainly write a poem about it And because Turn to Pago 5 Column

Registered The number registered for the young peoples phase of the conven tion was near the 200 mark Sat urday afternoon A large attend ance was expected for the banquet Saturday evening Bearing told his liateijerg that is some tendency rin youth of today to feel that opportunities are not as plentiful today as they have been in the past He denied this be lief and stated that there is just as much opportunity in the world to ilay as there ever was The oppor tunity comes however to those who merit it and who have prepared themselves spiritually mentally and physically to accept it Education Is Uplifting Charges that education is ruining the youth of the land were flouted by Dr Dearing with the statement that often the parents themselves were to blame if their children de rived no good from education Parents often are heard making the statement I dont want my son to work like I have had to work so I am giving him an education They bring up their children with the thot in mind to get out of work thru an education This is foolish Dr Dearing said The purpose of education is not to get people out of doing work It is the process of preparing the man or woman to work more effi ciently Parents who try to keep their children away from hard knocks are doing them wrong Dr Dearing affirmed The man who never has any burdens or obstacles to over come never achieves greatness he said He stated that these things are factors in the life of ajl great persons A special musical feature of the opening session was a cornet duet The Swiss Boy played by Sterl ing Prusia and Howard Schweer The boys were called back for an encore They were accompanied at the piano by Miss Mabel Joy Prusia G B Sheman Cedar Rapids new president of the Baptist Young Peoples association for Iowa was presented at
