"He is spoiled when his mother turns him loose for some innocent girl to worry over. There's my husband, Mike Woodruff. His work comes first--" "A better provider never was," said Mary Carney. "And who could be kinder to a wife and children?" "That's just it! He's too kind--so kind that he's slack. Is he ever home when he should be ?" "He is always working, Maggie," sooth- ed her neighbor. Unheeding Maggie went on: '"The night of our silver wedding he . . . " "Everyone knew a big story broke that night, Maggie." "That's what I'm telling you--his paper first." She slipped the daffodil cake from the oven and set it tenderly on the table. "Many a time he telephoned me to send one of the girls down to the office with a clean shirt. That is the way Doreen was ruined--carrying shirts and socks to her. father." Maggie, how can you be so silly? Do- reen ts a capable girl, and If abe chose to be a reporter, like her father, wouldn't you expect it?" "No," sighed Maggie. "Mary Carney, tf your daughter was running through Chi- cago with the ambulance, the police, and a crowd of newspapermen, what would you do ?" "Thank God I had a girl who could do it." said Mary emphatically. "If I hadn't sent her down to Mike with the clean socks and shirts she'd be a file clerk today, quiet and respectable." Mike Woodruff was in the fingerprint department, talking with Lieutenant Paul Fallen. Outside the snow was whirling dizzily as it fell. Chicago was in the midst of a Christmas gale. "The kid is not a criminal," said Paul "She wanted to get her picture In the paper, figuring she could make Holly- wood that way." "They don't know anything down at the desk," said Mike, "except that she is supposed to have stolen five horses rode one and led four--was thrown and' broke some ribs. She is home with her mother. No one gets in and out but the doctor. Reporters are draped all over the yard and porch." "Dirty work," Paul commented. "If I were the mother I'd scald the reporters," Mike agreed. "Agustus Bohn, the party who owns the horses, is in Florida, expected home on every train, His head stableman says the girl hasn't a chance." He filled his pipe, lighted it, took a few puffs. "Paul, many a secret I kept from my paper to protect some one." "I know you did, Mike. If you were on this--" "Not me. .Give me nice clean shoot- ings, bank robberies, arson, but keep me away from women and girls." "But, if you were on this case, Mike ?" "I'd smuggle her out of the house, give her twenty dollars and send her to my sister Mamie Woodruff who teaches fifth grade up at LaT:e Geneva." Doreen Woodruff was in conference with Challl. Manning, the city editor. "You go out to Lake Forest," he told her, "and get some tearful phrases about Angeline, the horse thief. It's too near Christmas for us to go stale, This little girl with the Hollywood complex will save US." "Why write her up, Challis? Her life will be smeared, and---" "Aren't you the little missionary?" the editor interrupted. "You get on out to Lake Forest! Enter the house if you have to break in. Bring back Angeline's picture, the mother's picture, e; picture of her home, several pictures of the hors- es. Then write softly, crooningly, half- sadly, and a mite sacredly--" "How can I get into the house? All the reporters know me?" '"Take the milk in." "It can't be done." "You can do it. You know you can." Christmas Just around the corner. A Child in a bed of strw.

She went home, changed her clothes, drank the coffee her mother poured for her. "This," said Maggie Woodruff, "is Christmas Eve, and I expect you an([ Mike to be home."
