The CATHOLIC NORTHWEST PROGRESS Pae Thirty-Three O The A.nchor LIM SAUNDERS walked down to the cove where his father kept his lobster gear. Suddenly he saw two strange boys stand- ing at the end of the little dock. "Hey! That isn't deep enough for div- ing!" Slim ran toward them. "Don't get excited," the older boy drawled, putting out a hand to stop Slim. "He knows how deep it is." The boy leaned over and cut the water with a clean dive that made hardly a ripple. His body was barely under water before he was on the surface again, swim- ming back to the dock. He climbed out, shivering, and laughed at Slim's amazed expression. "That water's cold! We're used to fresh water." Slim hitched up his cheap cotton trunks. These boys had blue wool trunks, with white stripes down the sides. "You're Slim," the boy's teeth chattered as he spoke; "we're staying at Hunt's place. They told us you'd show us around." Then the older boy spoke. "We're going to be here all summer. Bert is fifteen. My name's David." "A:nd he'll never let you forget he's two years cider than I am," the younger bro'_her added, and then he asked: "What l is that awful smell?" "That's bait for lobster pots," Slim laughed, and pointed to a barrel at one side. "It docsrPt ahvays smell like that" "I should hope not. Let's race. I'll beat both of you across to that big roc!c."

When he turned to look back, he saw them climbing up on the dock. "What happened?" He called, and turned back, too. He held to the step and looked up at them, sitting on the dock. .''"rhat water," David puffed. "It took all my wind. It's cold!" "Is salt water always cold?" Bert asked. Well, there's on thing I can do bet- ter than they can, Slim decided, even if their suits--and driving--are out of my class. The sun felt good on his wet back. "Whose rowboat is that tied to the end of the dock?" David asked. "Father's. Why?" Slim half shut his eyes against at glare of the sun on the water. '"rake us for a row," Bert demanded, "just out here in the harbor." ' never take the boat without telling 'father." Slim told them, "and he's not here now." "Oh, a sissy," Dave's slow voice taun- ted; "has to ask his father first. Well, if we take it. he can't blame you." "You better not." Slim warned, as the two brothers stepped into the boat and Dave began to untie the rope. "The tide's turned and there's always a swift current here. at ebb tide, even in th's little co;'e." The boat drifted a few feet before Dave answered Slim: "You can't scare me. I'm years older than you are. You're just say- ing that because you don't dare take the bgat, so you don't want us to. My father'll pa-; for the use of it." "Father doesn't let anyone hire that boL" Slm watched the tide pull them farther out into the channel. ':H - is this tim-%" Dave called back, "even if he doesn't kno:., it." Slim had h's first real feeling of trouble when they picked up th oars. They didn't know how to handle a boat! And that ebb tide was pulling them farther and farther into the channel. LADY OF THE LAKE Greetings of the Season LAKE CITY MOTORS G. R. Brownlv & Merle Souter. Props.

L I It By JEN TIBBETS Dave and Bert each held an oar. They finally got them placed in the oarlocks, then Dave pulled his oar back and dipped it into the water, deep.. Slim caught his breath as he watched the quick dip of the boat. The other oar was twisted out of Bert's hands. "Hey! Don't do that!" Slim yelled when he saw Bert lean over, trying to reach the oar that drifted away. Dave stood up in the boat and called to SHIn to do something. Slim made a megaphone of his hands. "Sit down! rll get a boat and come out to you," he yelled. He had to get help. But there was no one near, and no car to go for help. His father had taken the car. Looking around, his searching eyes rested On his father's lobster boat, moored about a hundred feet from shore. He knew bow to run the engine. He knew every- thing about the boat, but he had never taken it out alone. Culd he swim out to it, in the current? And what would his father say if he took it? Slim looked out to the koat where the boys were waving frantically. The boat was drift- ing straight out to the open sea. This was an emergency. He drove, and swam with his face in the water, taking long, steady strokes with his thin muscular arms. When he thought he should be halfway to the boat, he looked up. The current had pulled him way off his course! He had to do better than that or he'd never make it! His arms ached, and there was a sharp pain in htis chest. But he had to stop thinking about that. He had to think about those two boys. If his father were only here to help him. But he was alone! God was with him! "Please Godl help me get to that boat!" His lips formed the words and they seemed to ring in his ears. Then a certainty that God would help him gave him extra strength, and, when he looked up, the boat was directly ahead of him. His fingers clutched the rope that hung over the side of the boat. He pulled him- self nearer, toob[ a firm hold on the side of the 'boat, then took a long, sobbing breath of air, before he climbed in. He took a second for a silent "Thank you, God," then went to work. It did not take long to pull the canva protector off the engine and untie the boat from its moorings. Then he primed the engine, as his father had shown him so many times, and turned the fly wheel over. It coughed once. He tried it again, his heart pounding with more than fa- tigue. If it wouldn't start. But the next time it kept chugging and settled into its loud rhythmic beat. The boat cut tha water with a light ripple of white foam. He gave a relieved sigh, and turned to look for the boys. In a few minutes he was sure the boys could see him coming. A little smile of satisfaction grew in his eyes when he pictured their amazement at his coming alone--after they had called him a sissy because he would not take the row boat. The sea sounded strangely quiet when he stopped the engine and let his boat glide toward the drifting boys. "I thougkt you'd never get someone to come out for us," Dave said, his drawl forgotten. He stood up to move nearer the side of the boat. "Sit still!" Slim commanded. "Do you want to upset the boat now7 YOu wait till I tell you to move!" "Did you come out alone ?"
