Philip Marlin. whose ability as a story tellcr is rated high, told us t~=:s tale, it h:.pI.'ened (Philip began) two Zs~:mmcrs ago, up in Maine. A bunch ]of us had gone up to spend a fort- night at Freddy Damon's camp, iw::ich is situated on a small lake r, car t:~.e i:ase of Mount Mohawk. Young V.~c Moylan was with us that !year. Of cm,xse, he was much ycuugcr than LEe rest of us, but he had a craving for the outdoors, and his delight and joy at being allowed to accompany us was ample reward f~r any inconvenience he might C~US~. Young Vic, we discovered shortly after reaching camp, possessed two traits cf character that were ad. mirable. First he was good na- tured, a willing worker, and was eager to learn. And second, he coulc~n't bear t~ see anything hurt. The first trait, or traits, if you will, became aI.'parent shortly after cur sojGurn at the camp got under- way. The second came into evi- dence about three nights after our arrival.

Thatis, we all did but Vic Moylan. The kid lay awake listening to that wailing and wondering what it could be. He'd never heard a sound like it before, but some instinct the rest of us didn't possess told him that Joe Tucker, seasoned woodsman though he might be, was wrong. At any rate, after an hour I~ad passed, young Vic sl~pped quietly out of bed, dressed, found and light- ed a lantern and set off toward Mount Mohawk alone and unafraid. Two hours later we were awak- ened by a pounding on the front door. Joe and I went down to in- vestigate, and found Vic standing on the veranda outside with his arms full of dog. Literally. The mutt that he had carried three miles down that mountain in the dark, after first liberating its forepaws from a steel trap, was the biggest and most vicious-looklng mongrel canine on which I've ever laid eyes. 'He Carried the Brute Inside.' Vic's face was a mask of wretch- edness and pity. Without a word he carried the brute inside, laid it on the divan and ordered Joe and me to heat water and procure ban- dages. We watched them, mutely, while the kid went about the busi- ness of setting the broken bone and adjusting splints. After it was over Joe Tucker emitted a great sigh of relief and whistled through his teeth. I looked at him curiously, and he beckoned Vic and me into the kitchen. "Don't blame you for being tender-hearted, kid, but you'll have to get rid of the beast in the morn- ing." Both Vie and I looked surprised, and Joe said: "That's Ray Thorn. ton's dog. His name is Rusty end he's got the meanest reputation in the county. He's ugly and vicious. A mongrel He's bitten half a doz- en kids. and there's at least fifteen farmers who would shoot him on sight," Vic was astonishe'd. "Why, that can't be so," he protested, "If he were as mean and ugly as all that he'd never have let me take him out of the trap or set his leg. Why. he never moved a hair." "'Probably too exhausted," Joe avowed. "I tell yuh that critter is a man-killer." Vic's face grew worried. You could plainly see that be was skeptical about See, yet at the same time he didn't wane to overrule his advice. Presentl~an ~mswe~ to the problem suggested itself. "1'11 tell you what," he declared. keep him inside till his leg's cured, and he won't bother anyone. It would be murder to turn him loose." Joe argued, then turned to me and pleaded. However, I couldn't forget THE KALONA NEWS the look in Vic's eyes when I f.rst saw him standing on the vera.~a. and fray, I had a soft spot in my heart for dumb animals myself. At any rate, we all three consulted Freddy Damon, and when I re- fused to support Joe, Freddy de. clared that if Vic would promise to keep the dog locked up at all times, it was all right with him. And so that very night Vie and Rusty moved into the guide's cabin. The next day Freddy and I weat down to the village and made in. quiries. All that Joe haft'told us, we learned, about the ugliness of l:usty was true. We returned to camp tl~at night determined, despite Vie's fondness for dumb animals, to get rid of Rusty, thereby eliminat ag the possibility of being killed in cur sleep by a maniacal dog. However, we might as we!! have determined to blot out the mocz~. Upon arriving at camp we discov- ered Vic had gone off fishing, and decided that during his a~:scn~'e would be an excellent time to re- move Rusty. Freddy and I strolled over to tke guide's cabin and opened the c'o~r ~and closed it again immediately, A snarl, resembling the war cry of a Bengal tiger, set the goose pim- ples to racing up and down our spines. We consulted and agreed to abandon our plan till Vic re- turned. Vic got back at sundown, and lis- tened to our story. His attitude was disquieting. It would be inhuman, he informed us, to turn the dog loose in its present condition, and under the circumstances he'd have to re- fuse. The Situation Became Delicate. Well, to make a long story not so long, the situation became dell- cate, and in a sense amusing. Rusty T:IERE'S big news in the realm of remained as our--or Vie's--guest ~fashions for brides.

"Wait," he said, "wait till the brute's leg is healed, and see. He'll kill the kid, sure as shootin'. He's got the killer streak in him." Joe's prediction worried us. We were inclined to agree with him and we were afraid for Vic. For Mongrel Rusty wasn't pleasant to look upon. But Vic only laughed. He said we didn't understand dogs, and that our methods were wrong. I tell you we all breathed a sigh of relief when the day for departure came and Vic took the car and drove Rusty down to the farmer who owned him and left him there. He came back with a long and sad face. No one said a worcl. We all piled into the car and drove away toward home. At the village we dropped Joe and said good-by. "You're lucky," he said, in parting, to Vic. "If you'd kept the brute till he got fully well he'd have slashed your throat. Those mongrels are tricky." We tried to put the incident from our minds, glad enough to be away and have Vie with us, alive and well. And so we returned home and settled back into the routine of our everyday lives. Things went along serenely for a week, and then Fred- dy Damon received a letter from Ray Thornton which he read to us. The letter said the dog Rusty had died, and as far as he could make it had died from nothing more than a broken heart Ray, its owner, was puzzled. For Ray, like every- one else, thought the dog was a man killer. Philip paused, and sighed. "Only young Vie Moylan," he finished, "understood. And tlte kid never tried to explain to us." ~t In Subs or Satin, Wartime Brides Are Lovely as Ever Mountain Peak Named For Confederate Soldier A hitherto nameless peak in the Great Smoky Mountains National park, N. C.-Tenn., has been desig- nated Mount Lanier by the United States board on geographical names. This action was based on the request of the Untted Daughters of the Con- federacy that Sidney Lanier, who~e centennial occurs this year, thus be honored. Mount Lanier, elevation 3,145 feet, is a peak on Haunab mountain. A few miles distant is Montvale Springs, where Lanier spent many boyhood summers. '~iger Lilies," his first novel, depicts the Great Smokies and their people. Sidney Lanier, poet, musician, Confederate soldier, was born Feb- ruary 3, 1842, at Macon, Ga. He died September 7, 1881, at Lynn, Pike County, N.C. During his llfe's brief span, the social order in which he was born and reared was overturned and his personal fortunes ruined. Yet his record for nationalism and his influence in the New South were so well reco~iizod that in 1876 he was chosen to write the words that Inaugarated Philadelphia's Centen- nial exhibition, marking the 100th anniversary of American independ- ence. tin~ed trend to big weddings. For the formal bride who is for- tunate enough to have a preten- 'tious wedding in the time-honored way, the eKquisite gown pictured in the foreground of the above illus- tration is a masterpiece of all that goes to make up a "picture." There is infinite charm in this stately wed- ding gown of gleaming ivory white satin, enhanced with a yoke of Alencon-type lace. The snug-fitting basque is prettily sleeved with short puffs of the satin which add to the youthful technique employed all through the costume design. The fVictorian bouquet complements the quaint charm of the gown and the short bridal veil. This ~bridal bou- quet is of white roses and pompom 'chrysanthemums, with a deep red :rose as a touch of romantic mod- ernism. The bride's flowers are traditionally the groom's responsi- bility, but it is the bride's privilege Bright Squares By CHERIE NICHOLAS to specify her preferences, and it is readily to be seen that the bride pictured here made a most excellent choice. The bride who is real news this spring is the bride who is going to be married in a simple little suit in a hurry-up wedding because of army regulations and the uncertain- ties of the soldier-groom's recall to headquarters. Thus a new expres- sion, "suit wedding," has been coined, and to meet its requirements designers are giving of their best to create costumes that will make the simple wartime bride as lovely arA charming as the stately bride who is privileged to enjoy all the pomp and glory of a more formal wedding. Ingenious designing resulted in the suit dress pictured to the right in the above illustration. It is a triumph of soft tailoring and is be- guilingly feminine and definitely fashion.right. It boasts two lives, for it serves both as a suit and as a charming dress when the jacket is removed. This New York crea- tion is of navy wool with attached blouse top of red crepe, gaily print- ed in vivid blues and greens, which matches the jacket lining. A jaunty hat of white fabric trimmed with red and white fringe completes the en- semble..The gloves and footwear are perfect selections.

The lace is re- movable.

Designers Say 'No' To those engaged in apparel in- dnstrles has come an unprecedent- ed challenge to make the adjust- manta necessary to carry on a pro- gram of conservation of materials in accordance with wartime priority rulings. The ~eaction to this chal- lenge is most heartening. There ap- parently will be no lack o~ fashion h~terest but really a gain in new ideas and new ways of making the most of materials at hand.

AS to "pure allk" silks, what is being achieved-with rayorf and other synthetics is a revelation. Achieve Maximum Style g/hh Minimum Yardage The restriction on materials has spurred designers to create fash- ions that require minimum yard* age. So look for slim silhouettes and shorter jackets styled so in- triguingly you will be converted tO the idea at first glance.
