M. LCD MEETS DEFEAT
fVL LCD'S ancient but shiny
coup wai parked in the
driveway. The two men reached
It, Paula at their heels.
Tony said. Taulie, when are
"With Dr. Lud!" she flunf at
Mm. "And dont try to stop me."
"No time to argue," Lud com
anded, "Let her come."
Backing Into the street, Lud
aid, "If wa only knew where to
tart. We haven't one chance in a
hundred driving around blindly."
Tony said, "Gosh, if I'd only
kept my mouth shut! I knew the
bays were up to something and I
blew off to Hal about it. So, of
course, ha shut up."
Lud was driving aimlessly about'
the campus. Tony glanced at his
"Seven-thirty," he announce.
"If we don't set a lead soon . . ."
Paula said suddenly, "Why not1
try the old bam. Dr. Lud?"
tie snook his head. "It s doubt
ful If they'd meet there again." !
"No, wait. Dr. Lud," Tony broke I
In. The League might figure that ;
nobody would look in the most
"All right, Tony, maybe It's
worth a try."
Paula told him how to reach
the old bam. In a few minutes
they were on the road which she
and Jenks had taken.
"Car coming," Lud grunted.
Headlights flared behind them. .
An open roadster, traveling at
high speed, swished past. j
Tony gripped Lud's arm. "That
was Hal Bascomb i car! We're on
the right track. Feed it the soup,
pAULA, her body tense, peered
into the darkness. They were
suH about a hall mile from the
road where she and Jenks had
Dr. Lud stop!" Paula ex
claimed. "I I thought I saw cars
parked behind that old school-
Lud Jammed the coupe to a stop,
"She's right!" Tony shouted.
"Naturally the fellows wouldn't
meet on the campus. They'd prob
ably get together somewhere and
go to the League meeting."
Lud turned the car into a rutty
lane. "Well soon see."
A figure darted from behind the
ehoolhouse and ran to meet the
tear. "Hey, Jenks, we thought you
At that moment the student
recognized Dr. Lud, A whistle of
astonishment broke from his lips.
Calmly Lud drove behind the
scboolhouse and parked beside a
half dozen other cars loaded with
students. Then they heard the
voice of Hal Bascomb:
"You're a great guy, Tony!
What's the faculty going to give
yoa for squealing a magna cum
Tony said, "Look, Hal, will you
listen to what Dr. Lud has to say
before you get sore?"
Slowly, grumbling under their
breath, the students piled out of
their cars and stood in a sullen
(reap before Lud.
"Shoot it. Professor Hal said.
"Well listen until Jenks comes,
but we won't change our minds."
, With the utmost composure, Lud
Ignored the remark. Deliberately
fce took a cigar from his pocket
land, cupping his hands against the
Ibreeze, lighted it
, "Relax, gentlemen," he said as
ra tally as if he were addressing
b class. "I'll make it brief. First,,
row many of you feel that Dr.
Van Horn Is a good president?"
' "He's okay, but he lets the
Kague run the campus."
I "Sure," Bascomb said, "it's all
right for guys like Tony to turn
he other cheek. He's not coming
pack to Cardman. But I am, and
Bo's my kid brother. Think I want
turn to get slugged because Van
Horn hasn't nerve enough to buck
"I can see your point of view,
Bascomb," Lud said. "But if
you'll turn around and go home
I promise the League will give
jou no trouble next year."
. From the rear of the group
cemeone jeered, "Yah! Another
statement from the president's
pace, ru betl"
Lud went on: "Tell mc, Bas
leomb, do you think you fellows
are more capable of handling this
problem than the faculty?"
fTHE question was shrewd. An
embarrassed silence followed.
Lud quickly pursued his advan
tage: "Did It ever occur to you fel
lows that the League is being de
liberately used to make trouble
at Cardman? If you go to their
kneeting tonight you're playing
fright into the enemy's hands."
: "That's old stuff. Dr. Lud!"
lAgaln the voice came from the
rear where, obviously, several hot
heads were keeping out of sight
"Bill Jenks says the League's
losing that story to protect itself."
"Jenks seems to know every
Ithtng," Lud said dryly.
j "We know our duty to Card,
nan," Bascomb said stubbornly.
("We're going to run the League
rit or school."
Lud's cigar glowed. "Gentle
men, suppose 1 tell you that If
(you pursue this foolish course, I'll
tee that every last one of you is

"Nevertheless, I will," Lud re
ported .Tfc -$ifted uneasily.
Then, from the darkness, ha rah
voice spoke: "Fellows, that's pure
Bill Jenks had parked on the
road and walked back. He strode
over to Bascomb and linked hts
arm in the student's,
Lud's words snapped out at the
reporter: "You're pretty confident,
Jenks, because you've nothing at
"Look. Bascomb, Jenks said,
"Dr. Lud here talks about avoid
ing a scandal at Cardman. What
do you think'd happen if all of you
were expelled?" Jenks laughed.
-It's a swell bluff. Doc, but it
A NT) in that instant Paula knew
Dr. Lud had failed. Jenks'
arrival had stirred the boys to new
excitement. Nothing, she felt,
could stop them now.
Lud pulled Paula and Tony to
one side. "I'm going to delay
them as Ion as possible," he
whispered. You two get to the
League meeting and warn them
Tony slid into the driver's seat
and Paula followed. Recklessly
he backed the coupe along the
snaky ruts. Once on the open
road, he sent the old car shud
dering through the night at top
Whin they reached the mud
road Paula directed him to turn.
They hit a deep rut that almost
jammed her head into the top.
"Stop here." she ordered a few
moments later. "We'll cut through
Tony obeyed. Then he turned
and grasped Paula's arms. He
spoke slowly, as if the precious
minutes weren't slipping away:
"Look, Paula, I know you hate

"Paulie. this Is Important This
League bunch may be pretty tough
to handle. We've got to work to
