Issue of "Who's Who Ainonu
Students in American t'lilverl
ties And Colleges."
This publication Is published
through tlx- cooperation of over
fiOO American universities and
colleges. It is the only means
of notional recognition for grad-
uate which Is devoid of politics,
fee , and dues. Several students
are selected each year by an un-
prejudiced committee to represent
accredited colleges and universi-
ties, The choice Is based on four
points: character, leadership,
scholarship and potentialities.
The purpose of "Who's Who"
is to serve as an Incentive for
students to get the most out of
their college careers; as a menus
of compensation to students for
what tluy have already done; us
a recommendation to the business
world; and as p standard of mea-
surement for students comparable
to such agencies as Phi Beta Kap-

They would pay—all of them--
.'or hating Arnold Bcnthorne. In
life he had ruled them all. In
dentil he would still retain his
power over them. They would
suffer. Only Benthorne could have
conceived such n vengeance.
Deliberately he folded the paper,
then rising quickly from his chair,
he hurried across the study, pulled
u bookcase away from the wall
and knelt beside a small safe, lie
twisted the lenob and in n mo-
ment the door swung open. Light
from the desk lamp glistened on
Benthorne paused, undecided.
"First place Helen and Joey
would look," he said, half aloud.
He stepped to the window,
pulled back the drawn shade.
Rain drummed unceasingly against
the panes. A fresh, cool draft
swept into the room as he raised
the sash a few inches.
A flash of lightning revealed the
dark-couted figure of a policeman,
huddled against the gate. There
was another in the garage, a third
at the rear driveway, Bcnthorne
knew. Thunder shook the house,
rattled the window.
The ticking of the clock nbove
the fireplace echoed throughout
the ensuing silence.
Only a few minutes more, Ben-
There was yet one chance—only
one—but he would take It. Quick-
ly he returned to the desk, turned
the lamp shade so that the light
fell more upon the closed door.
He crumpled the paper in his
hand, tossed it into the waste-
basket. He opened a desk drawer,
took out a revolver. The safety
clicked. He replaced it, carefully
leaving the drawer open.
Pulling his chair back from 1hc
circle of light, yet still within
roach of the gun In the drawer,
Arnold Bcnthorne sat down,
waited for his murderer.

FOUND DEAD." Good old con-

liked the Porker paper better

That's what it takes. That's what
It took to make Arnold Benthorne.

Ho saw an older boy, heavier,
stronger, taunting the weeping lad.
vunny that he should remember
now. The older Doy, Billy Watson,
had challenged his right to sell
papers on that corner. Arnold—
hin name was not Bcnthorne then
—had refused to light, hud run
away in terror.
Another picture came to mind
Billy's face, disappearing beneath
the waters of the river. Arnold
had run sorvaminq to the hi
pollccmnn; men had dived into the
river for Billy's body. The crowd
praised Arnold—he had done all
lie could. Even Billy's mother wn;; ■
nice to him, after her hysterical
crying had stopped.
They never found Billy's body.
It was hist as well. Someone
might have wondered about those
bruised knuckles—bruised as Ar-
nold pounded Billy's fingers as he
clung to the dock.
The papers would not tell that
T^O—there would be columns
about Arnold Benthornc's phe-
nomenal rise In the business world.
They would tell how dying stocks
revived under his magical touch,
how he pyramided his wealth into
millions. There would be the story
of his vast factories, his thousands
of employes. His charities would
be mentioned, and the scholarships
his wealth had made possible.
There would be pictures, too, of
Bcnthorne— dark-haired, flfty'sh,
his cold, piercing eyes staring out
from the lean hardness of his face.
He hoped they would use that pic-
ture he had had made last month
—the one the photographer said
made him look like a dictator.
Helen's picture would be back
In the papers again, too. The .so-
ciety editors would see that his
marriage to Helen Alston, daugh-
ter of one of America's greatest
motor truck manufacturers, would
not be forgotten.
The gossip columnist! had en-
joyed a field day guessing the real
facts behind the Alston-Benthorne
wedding—wondering how one of

marry a men almost as old as her
father. Omv one reporter—and
Benthorne recalled grimly that ho
had soon lost his job—had hit the
real reason. He had hinted that
Benthorne had threatened to
wreck Alston Motors and that old
man Alston thought more of his
trucks than of his daughter.
There was one mystery about
Benthorne that no newsnnnerman
would ever solve, Kor years they
had been speculating as to whero
Arnold Benthorne got his stake.
No one knew him when he first
came to New York, armed with
$50,000 and the determination to
turn it into a million. No one
knew—nor would ever know—the
story of "Big Red."
They hud met in Alaska. "Big
Red" had come in with the Klon-
dike rush, hunted his strike for
20 years. And he hud found it—
far inland, among unmapped
mountains, "Big Red" had found
his gold. Benthorne—his name
had been Benson then—learned of
the mine when "Big Red" filed
his claim. I.j had followed "Big
Red" northward. He remembered
"Big Red's" piteous cries as ho
left linn, blind and dying in that
forgot' >n valley.
He liad taken "Big Red's" name
—John Douglas—os well us his
claim title and ore samples, until
he had sold out to a mining com-
ii • had listed "Big Red" as one
of the five—and "Big Red' was
dead. He'd scratch o!T the name.
No use blaming a murder on n
dead man. Queer that he had
imtiflincd, even for an instant, that
"Big Red" was alive.
He reached for the wastebnsket.
'•I'JON'T move, Benthorne!"
The soft voice, almost a
whisper, came from the hulf-
"YCU!" Bcnthorne gasped.
The muzzle of a revolver shone
in the light. The round, black
hole held Benthorne's, hypnotized
