Reliable observers predict the present fireworks will not subside until Congress convenes and then a new Type of pyrotechnics will take their place for without doubt health instead of housing and medical care instead of reorganization will emerge As one of the most vital and Stormy issues of the 76th session meeting next january. The National health conference has audaciously urged that Uncle Sam Don physicians garb and for the next ten years extend care to those unable to afford it. Uncle Sam in the role of doctor would Send in a Bill for $8,500,000,000, yearly. This is the estimate of the sum needed.

A make a move a he said a and ill blow your head Gerry Wells arms were free. His impulse was to lash out but his hands had been tied behind his Back for Over five hours. His Muscles were cramped and stiff and when he tried to move he found that the Effort Only resulted in agonizing pain. Tile limper gave a Quick glance round. No boat was to be seen. There was no one on the Shore. Full Daw n had hardly come and the faint still lingering Twilight must Obs ure their actions from any Distant Ca. Uni watcher. A Over with him a he grunted. Too Lute Wells wrenched his arms Forward. The Man beside him could Only knee the limper in tilt Groin a flashed through his mind hut the pistol would explode automatically with the contraction of the limper. Finger upon the Trig get and the Bullet would shatter i face into a bleeding mass of pulp. He decided to Duck and take the risk but the Man who had held him and the other who had d Alt with Wells came at him by pushing him violently upon the Chest Aud shoulders so that he went overboard with a loud spin h. Spitting and choking lie came up with his Mouth full of sea Antei shaking the drops from Ilia eyes i glanced wildly round. The boat was already heading Back towards the River Mouth its Crew pulling lushly. Then he saw Wells a dozen Yards away floundering about in the shallows. It was a matter of seconds Only before his feet touched the and. He tripped upon it regained his balance and stood up. The water was Only up to his Middle but instantly he stood he Felt the Sand giving beneath his feet so that he was in to his Ankles before he could pull them out again. He Flung himself Aal and began to swim out to sea knowing that his Only Chance Lay in reaching deeper water but the tide was ebbing with terrifying swiftness. As he lunged it it his toes kicked the Bottom interfering with his stroke so that his hands swept downwards and his nails scraped on the Sand below him. Gerry Wells was staggering from Side to Side trying to fight his Way towards the Shore but at every step he took the Sand gave like oozy mud under his feet and he Felt himself sucked Down. A on your face you fool a shouted Gregory desperately. A try and reach the deeper water then Well swim for i can to gasped Wells. A i can t swim. But the tides running out. If i can reach firm Sand ill get those devils the depth of the water had now decreased to a couple of feet. Gregory floundered on but it every stroke l1 took the Sand was churned up by his feet behind him. Wells stuck. He could Advance no further. He stood there in the shallow water waving his arms wildly As he endeavoured to fling himself Forward but his feet had sunk in and the Sand had him in its grip up to the calves of his legs. A help a he bellowed. A for gods Sake give me a hand to pull me Gregory turned a Little and splashed towards him but his Knees were now touching Bottom it every movement that he made. The Light was brighter now almost full Day. In the distance the limper. Boat appeared a Cockle Shell heading to landward up the Channel. Gregory could swim no further. He began to crawl Forward on his stomach knowing that to distribute his weight was the Best Way of preventing himself from sinking. Pm a ii Ion.

Both of them could tee flu Mark of the receding tide As it approached now by leaps and Bounds. At one moment they were struggling in Nix inches of water the next it was Down to three and almost before they had time to Realise it the Sou was gone leaving them stranded in the glittering Sand Gregory Felt it Well up about his thighs and wriggle As he would there was no Way to fret himself of it. The tiny particles formed a Glutinous mud which would not hear his weight More or Ley evenly distributed As it was. His Knees were buried and it trickled Over the hollows behind them. Wells had sunk up to his armpits. Both of them visualized the awful moment when the Sand won 11 by above their chins when they could no longer lift their arms and Wert dragged Down by the constant sucking motion so that the Sand reached their lips and entered their Mouths in spite of All their efforts choking them As they Sank and covering their eyes and Mouths. They began to scream at the top of their voices Yelling for help with All the Force of their lungs but not a sound came Back to them from the desolate wastes and no human figures appeared on the Distant Cliffs their Field of View had narrowed As they Sank and their eyes were now no More than twelve inches above the Sand. To their left the Channel Cut through the Flat expanse of Sand by the River Stour was still filled w Ith deep fast flow ing water but their Eye level was too Low for them to see it although it Lay Only some thirty Yards away. They ceased to shout conscious that their cries for help were unavailing and that every ounce of breath was precious in their fight for life. The Quicksand seemed to have become alive As though imbued with some evil spirit of its own. It sucked and chuckled As they fought it creeping up about them with gentle a checkable persistence. Wells had almost Given up buried to the armpits his head thrown Back he moved his arms Only sufficiently to prevent their submergence As Long As possible while the sweat of the terror of death streamed off his face. Gregory was still fighting against his better judgment us the Sands seemed to suck at him More fiercely with each new Effort that he made. It was then when both men Felt All Hope was gone that they heard the muffled drumming of a rapidly approaching motor boat. Suddenly it ceased and a loud report like the crack of a Small Cannon shattered the silence. They stopped struggling instantly and wrenched their shoulders round toward the left. Thirty Yards away a group of men appeared to be standing knee deep and rocking gently in the Sand. From them a Long Black Snake like rope was whizzing through the air a life line fired from a rocket gun. It twisted a moment overhead then came hurtling Down with a plop onto the Sand Between the two almost buried men Tho Lead disc at its end piercing the morass a Good Twenty Yards beyond them.
