LIFE MUST GO ON

someone is very ill and where, through courtesy, an attempt is being made to keep the news from the guests?'
`Yes,' Henriot said, `there's certainly something wrong ... I heard one of the officers say: "Is the post going to hold?" '
Next day as we were sitting down to dinner, General Heusch, the Marshal's chief of staff, arrived. He was a witty Alsatian and was the life of the party. But the moment the last bite had been swallowed he shut himself up with General de Chambrun. Since they did not reappear, we took leave of Madame de Chambrun and toward midnight returned to our beautiful courtyard with its orange trees. At three o'clock in the morning we were abruptly awakened by dark silhouettes. We saw an adjutant and some soldiers:
`Messieurs, the General begs you to leave at once for Oudjda. The car is at the door.'
`A car? ... But whya'
`The General desires you to reach Oran as quickly as possible. He has had rifles placed in the car.'
`Rifles? What sort of joke is this?'

'What?' said he. `You don't know? Why, it's war. Abd-el-Krim, the fellow who beat the Spaniards, has started an uprising in the Rif ... All ,the tribes are revolting and going to join him ... Look there. ..'
We were crossing a desert of white sand and we could see, riding along the crest of the dunes, handsome Arab warriors, with their long rifles slung over their backs. They were setting out for the Holy War.
`Do you think they are going to attack us?'
`As to that,' he said, `I don't know any more than you do ... But I'll be glad when we get within reach of Oudjda.'
pAs a matter of fact, we arrived in Oudjda without being forced to defend ourselves. The French Consul, Monsieur de Witasse and his wife, a cultured air, gave us tea, comfortable chairs and La Nouvelle Revue Franfaise. `Ah!' they said. `We were certainly glad to see you arrive. The General telephoned us three times from Fez about you. He was worried.'
When I saw General de Chambrun in Paris some time later he said to me laughingly:
