Can We Get Chlorine For The Swimming Pool? One of the chief excuses made to ex- plain the cloiang of tire Bartlett-Rlwdes swimming pool is that the city cannot pur- chase chlorine for treatment of the pool water. Last Thursday I wired one of the larg- est municipal users of chlorine in Michi- gan who responded by wiring me the ad- dresses of chemical plants who manufac- ture chlorine. I immediately wrote these plants and received a letter this morning from the Mathieson Alkali Works, New .York'City, explaining'that liquid chlorine is under direct allocation of the War Pro- duction Board. They further explained that all users of liquid chlorine for any other purpose than for drinking water or sewage treatment must file application form PD-160 in dupli- cate with regular supplier before the tenth of th.e month prior to the month de- livery is required. In other words, chlo- rine could have been delivered to the city in June if the order had been placed by May 10th. However, the Mathieson Alkali Co. states that by filing a set of these forms direct with the War Production Board, Chlorine Unit, Washington, D. C., with a letter of explanation that the city would UNDOUBTEDLY RECEIVE APPROVAL AND SHIPMENT COULD STILL BE MADE IN JUNE. A full set of the neces- sary forms was enclosed in their letter to me. It appears from the above that the "No Chlorine" excuse for closing the swimming pool is not valid.. To assume that a city of population cannot or will not put into operation an already existing swim- ming pool for the benefit of the children and adults is nothing short of appalling. There is no .need for the city to profit from the operation of this pool. Enough admission charges could surely be collect- ed to pay someone to operate it and to pay for chlorine. Several business men have approached me and offered to donate money to a fund designed to pay the costs of putting the pool in good operating shape. Haven't we enough initiative left in Middlesboro to keep in operation this worth while means of healthful recreation for our residents? Shall we allow one of our beauty spots to go to rack and ruin be- cause of outrageous neglect?

Hun- tor bets his next year's salary that before fie year's end his wager-loving employer will re- store his horse and corn, and apologize. He repeats the bet be- fore Ballard's daughter, Bella. Late that nigbt Hunter finds Ballard's dissipated son, Junior, lying on the floor of his room. Beside him is a satchel contain- ing 4 Chapter II Hunter Dent dazedly counted the sum of money again, and re- placed the large denominations in the leather bag. A goldleaf mono- gram, almost obliterated by use, was of the First National Bank, Middleton. The Ballard Laborator- ies had their account in this bank. It was possible the money was Mr. Ballard's. Hunter went and looked down at the boy. He was breath- ing with a gargling noise and seemed dead drunk. Pain tugged at Hunter. It was no new thing. He had looked after Junior before when he was drunk j he had tided him through a couple of tight spots from gambling; he had tried to get the boy to behave. Hunter had an affection for Junior. They had been pretty close these years, that is until lately. Something seemed to be coming between them, and Hunter was saddened. "Poor brat. Well, this is the fruits of too much paternal indul- gence. I'd better get him to his room and to bed." First, however, he must safe- guard the money. He put it in the new steel safe, the combination to which only Hunter knew, as the safe was recently installed and Mr. Ballard bad not got around to checking on the installation. Hunt- then hoisted the limp young man across his powerful shoulders and carried him into the night. The party seemed to have broken. Hunter knew his way about. He toted Junior to his room and with- out taking off his clothes put him on the bud and came away. He made u round of the house. Udd about the party's breaking up. Usually these things lasted all night. The house was as deserted as a tomb. He searched for Jun- ior's car, a powerful, costly road- ster, but it was not in the garage nor parked under the trees in the ilrive. Hunter commented in Ilia mind. He ascended the outside stairs .0 the office, which was housed in he large upstairs over the mod- garage. Before going in he ook a look down toward the large barns. He could see the huge sign on the roof of the larger barn. BALLARD BITTERS, FOR KX- 'KSS ACID STOMACH, OVER- NUUUJENCE, LIQUID, POW- JEK, TABLET FORM. L' thought that struck Hunter nade his pulse bound. Junior Bal- ard in all likelihood was so intoxi- ated that he would remember lot'.iing of his coming to the of- ice, of Hunter's carrying him to lis bed, perhaps not even how or vhere he had got the money 1 'All I would need to Hunt- thought, "would be to keep the noney in the safe.

I've got him with his tail in the fence-crack, and all 1 need to do is let the fence drop smackdab down on Maybe it was a little shabby. Hut when you have just yielded up the fruits of some years of your own life because of an underhold, and you manage in turn to grab yourself an underhold even strong- er, is that a moment in which to weaken? Hunter stiffened his .-pine and went in, going to bed so as to catch some more sleep before he rose early ill the morn- ing. He did not. sleep very well. He waked before sunrise, according to his habit. He went down to the barns. Tin-re he set the colored boys to feeding the horses, and getting the milking done. Sunrise was gathering on the hills and val- leys and river when he was thro- ugh with tho morning chores. The colts were frolicking in the ivoods pasture. The cornlands were brown-green and the blobs of color were alfalfa. The long sweep of the river, buttressed by limestone cliffs, with the sunrise sparkling on the water, was like a sequence in technicolor production. Strick- land Ballard liked to spend his money for such effects. "Top of the called cheerful contralto voice from the bottom step us Hunter came around the corner of the office. "Hullo, Red." Hunter said, eye- ing her with disapproval. Bella Ballard wore a bright peasant dress; a milkmaid's dress. If she had ever milked a cow he had not seen her. But for her father's reg- istered herds she might have sup- posed milk grew in bottles and was plucked from trees. Her gay par- ody on a working-girl's costume somehow outraged the young man- ager. She was just a little too lovely her lips were just a bit too kissable. She hadn't any right to be so damned attractive. It would have been different if she still followed him around as she did as a teen-kid. Now she was grown up. She would be married at Christ- mas to Oliver Tisdale. The Tisdale half-millions came out of the Ballard interests. Josiah Tisdale had put his last hundred dollars in Strick Ballard's bitter business. Time passed. Bitters boomed. Tisdale was rich too. Now young Tisdale was marrying the Ballard girl. That tended to keep the big medicine business in the family.

WO AIRMEN TELL OF BATTLE ON JAP FLEET (Continued from page 1) way to our objective we received word that another Japanese in- vasion fleet, including carriers, had been spotted by Navy pa- trol boats. "We changed our course and headed for the new quarry. Thanks to the work of our navi- gator, Lieut. Bill Adams, San Bernardino, Calif., we found the Japs just where the PBY's had told us they w.ere. After "We saw the ships lined in two columns with their destroy- ers and lighter craft flanking the heavier capital ships. We paid no attention to them. We were after the carriers, which we knew would be farther back behind the main units. "Big fluffy clouds made visi- bility difficult, and the Japa- nese carriers tried to hide un- der them. "But we spotted them way down below through a hole in the clouds. There were two of them in sight. I concentrated on one which was circling round and round, the typical Japanese defense maneuver against high level bombing attacks. were greeted by a hail of anti-aircraft fire which flowered all around us, like big black puff balls. "Make no mistake, those gun- ners good. They put up a veritable curtain of fire around the earner. Right on Nose "Just then Zero fighters came up to attack us and believe me things were pretty hot up there for a few minutes. "The carrier's decks were empty. We found out later its planes at that very moment were attacking Midway. "Our .element (three planes) went down out of the sun for the run over the target. "The doors of the bombing compartment swung open and over we went. "We laid our bombs right smack across the port bow and we headed for home as fast as our motors would carry us. "I could not see the effects of our bombs immediately, but the tail gunner yelled over the inter-phone: 'We got her right on the "I looked down as we banked around. Sure enough the entire bow of the carrier was belching smoke and flames. Even from our high altitude we could see that the carrier had been badly hit. The Japanese fighters gave us little trouble. They seemed to be more interested in the car- rier than in us and we soon lost them." Spared Runway Then Sweeney told of the critical moment when the planes returned to their Midway base to find that the island had been under bombardment for half an hour under the full fury of Jap- anese carrier-based high level, dive bomber and fighter planes. "They did not attempt to bomb the he said. "Evidently they intended to use the runways for their own planes after they captured the island. "But the carriers were attack- ed by Navy torpedo planes and dive bombers as well as our high level bombers and torpedo plan- es and they were knocked out. "We started a second attack as soon as we had been refuelled. We saw two ships burning as we flew out. One was a carrier and the other was a capital ship (battleship.)

Clear he told her. He supposed this was jealousy. But she got on his ner- ves. "Early rising makes you so sweet-tempered, Hunter, I decided I'd take it up." "Yeah? What happened to the party last She shrugged. "Everybody seem- ed to go home before it broke up." "What's that you've "The morning paper. It comes by the dawn cream truck. Since you seem to be illiterate I'd bet- ter read you the war news off the front page." She shook the paper out. "That's interesting" Hunter grunted. Yes, it is.

The supposition was that a payroll, or secret movement of money in currency, had cleared through the First National on short notice, but bank authorities bad not been contacted at the time of going to press.

He eyed her. She clasped her knees with her clasped hands, looked dreamy. "IM like to lay you a wager, Hun- ler." "No, he cried. "No more betting for Hunter Dent, no, sir! You ure now gazing upon The Man Who Learned Life's Lessons the Hard Way." 'II wager you that if I had a clew I could solve this deep dark mystery." "That's all a sleuth needs." "Let me ask you something." "Go ahead." "Did Junior come to your room ast night at any "Ciood Hunter said crossly. "Why should I always be keeping up with your brother?
