ln 1915 a young factory girl was killed in Atlanta, Georgia. Her name was Mary Phagan, and she worked at the National Pencil Factory. The factory manager was Leo Frank. He was a New York )ew. Frank was accused of the crime and brought to trial. Preparing for the trip to Morris's house The newspaper lined a bandbox. He opened the bandbox to get a fresh shirt collar. He wondered, as he often did, at the appearance of the newspaper. It had been glued into the sides and bottom of the box, and the date showed April 10, 1868. But the newsprint had not yellowed. "Obviously the glue is a preservative;' he thought. "We might think what there is in the glue to preserve the clarity, and, so, arrive at a new process, or, at a new application of an existing operation to lengthen the life of newsprint:' He smiled. "But is not longevity in opposition to its very nature, which is temporareity?

The child was kidnapped by the state-taken from his parents' home. No diplomatie or religious pressure was sufficient to induce the government of Spain or the Catholic church to give the child back. Frank looked clown at the clipping and thought of the discussions, the endless and not unenjoyable discussions, he and his fellow Jews had had about the outrage. The bandbox held his collars and, in a soft morocco purse, his cailar studs. He fitted the cailar into his dean shirt and stepped to the rnirror to tie his tie. "Yes, you look nice;' his wife said.
