DOROTHY DIX Swain of Many Loves Dear Miss Dix: I am a young man 22 years of age. I am employed by a company which transfers me from town to town so that I usually stay about three months in a place. In T!;c last year I worked in five different towns and dated girls in every one, and I am engaged to three of them, though I have not given them any engagement rings. One .girt is very intelligent .and I love her because she is my mental equal. One girl has a stupifying figure and I love her for her looks. One girl is very beautiful and I love her because she is a knockout. A fourth girl is very sweet It// I. o , I"% | Waltz into Darkness By William Irish Copyright by William Irish—Distributed by NEA Service, Inc. XL Hours of searing, lonely pain had gone by. Tortured hours. She was somewhere in the house but she was not beside him. Then the door opened and he knew she was looking at him. What a long look. Would she never stop looking? What was she thinking? 'You arc such a long time dying?" Or, "My own Jove, are you not any better yet?" Which was the true thought; which was the true she, and which his false dream of her? She had entered the room. She was coming toward him. She was bending over him. He couiu feel the warmth of her breath. His eyes opened and fixed on nor with a strange, melting softness. Like the eyes of a wounded dog, begging its release. She turned hers away, then irresistibly they were drawn back again. "Why are you looking at me like that, my dear? What arc you trying to say?" He motioned to' her wilh one finger to bend closer. Siie inclined her head u little Ihe better to hear what he had to say. He reached up falteringly and stroked Die fiiiige, the .silken blond bangs that curved before her cool smooth forehead. Then he struggled higher, onto an elbow, as if cast upward by the ebb tide that was leaving him behind so rapidly. "1 love you, Bonny." he whispered fiercely. "No oilier one, no other love. From first to last, from sliii-t to finish. And beyond. Beyond. Bonny: do you hear me? Beyond. It will not end. I will, but it will not." Her face came nearer still, slowly, uncertainly; like that of c.ne dipping toward a new experience, feeling her way. Something had happened to it. was happening lo i!; he liar never Keen it .so soft before. There were tears in her eyes. It was no illusion; he saw them. "Will a link' love do. Lou?" ''Any amount." "Then there was a moment in I which 1 loved you. And this is it." i And the kiss, unforced, unso- j licited, had all the bitter sv.vel- i ness, thi 1 unattainable yearning, ol j a love that might have been. And I ho knew, his heart knew, ii was .' ih'- 1 first she had over really given I him. | "That was eunutjh." 1: content. "That was a!! wan led." Claiming her hand, holding lus. he fell into an uneasy a fever oblivion, for a while Involuntarily, she drew her head back sharply for a moment. "Why do you ask for it now? I haven't offered it." "I'm in pain," ho said simply. 'I can't endure much more of it." And turned a little this way, then turned a little that. "If not in Kindness, then in charity—" "Later," she said evasively. Sweat started out on his face. His breath hissed through his nostrils. "When I did not want it, you urged it on me— Now that I plead with you, you deny me—Why wait for the night to be further advanced? Oh. spare me the 'light, Bonny, spare me the night! It is so long —so dark —so lonely—" She stood slowly, absently rubbing her frozen hand. Then with even greater slowness moved toward the door. She opened it, then stopped there to look back at him. Then went out. lie heard her going down tht stairs. And twice lie heard her stop, as though impulse had llaggcd; and then go on again, as j she fanned it back to life once more. She was gone about 10 minutes in all. Ten minutes of hell, while flames licked at him all over. Thou presently the door opened and she had returned. She was carrying it in her hand. She came to him and set it down upon the stand, a little lo the side of him, ocyond easy reach. 'Don't —Not yet—" she said in a stifled voice, when lie tried to reach for it. "Let it wait a while. A little later will do." When he awoke, the drt daylight wore settling in the like a fine while ash; iho day was past. Her hand was still in his. and shi.- v.'us silting thore, hor fa ex- to- ' ward him. Ho roleasetl hor hand. 'Bonny." ho ;;i£;hod, agoni/od. "Got mo another of Ihoso tonics, now. I aju I tool, it i'o a civ I'or it.'' I 1 She lit the lamp, and then went OVLT by the fireplace to fling tho match away. Then she remained there by il. looking down into it. Suddenly a bright lighl flared, like a hut. flickering, yellow slar. Ho looked over and she was standing sideward to Ihe fireplace, holding a burning brand oullhrust toward il in her hand. "What arc yon doing, Bonny?" '10 whispered feebly. Slit 1 did not turn her head, as if jt wore; of no consc-quonoe- lo hor whelher or not he was watching, "liurnin:^ a paper." "What paper'.'" Htv voice had no tone. "A policy of !::sur.'incx';—-upon your life-— payable for :r'-U.ODO." "It v.v.s nol worth Iho Iroublo. U hit-ki-r! fui'co. I told you thai." "11 \va:' in force; again just now. I pledged my ring and made up Iho payment:;." Siicicu-iily lie saw thai she had dropped i'.. She covered hor face with th..' liau: of hor hands. Ho sighed, but without much finouoa. "l j ooi- Bonny. Did you want the money that badly'.' 1 would havi—" Ho didn't finish il. Ho lay there Tor a moment or two a!U r lhal. inert. "i'ci butter drink this now, saiel sul'ilv, at lasl. and kind and gentle and I have fallen for her, although she does not have much physical appeal. Another girl is married and is very much in love wtih me, but I never did like her much. However, I am deeply in love with all the girls. Please tell me which one I should marry? Or do you think it best for me to marry none of them? ." -•--•- - E.' J. D: Answer: You must have a big heart if you can accommodate so many different lady loves simultaneously. I congratulate you upon your prowess with the iair sex, but I am glad to know that you are carrying on your little romances before you get married, instead of afterwards, for it is much easier to ditch a sweetheart than Jt is a wife. Hard to Advise With your capacity for falling in love at sight, it is difficult to advise you about which girl to choose. Take your case, lor instance. Certainly an intelligent girl with a fascinating line of conversation would keep you from ever being bored, but wouldn't your eyes inadvertently wander to the maiden wtih the stupifying figure? Men always fail for beauty, but doesn't it seem silly to marry for a charm that lasts so short a tune? When a bachelor finds that he hasn't a shirt with a button on it or a pair of socks that don't need darning, doesn't he succumb to the homely girl with a sweet, kind and gentle face who knows how to cook, and then wonder what made him do it? And as for the married woman, she's dynamite So, taking it all in all, son'. I would advise such a great lover as you arc to go slow on the wedding rings. • Dear Dorothy Dix: I have been engaged to a man for two years and we were planning to be married this fall, but I called it off because this is what he asked of me: To change my religion. To live in his home with hit family fo keep on with my job and have his lamer put the money I made m the bank because I wouldn't have time to do so, as I would be so busy earning it. To help him pay for a car he bought, but I could not be co-owner of it. He has a job which only pays him $;j(l a week and every time I ask him to do some little thing that would give me pleasure, such as going to a dance or a show, he refuses. My wishes count for' nothing. Then he claims he loves inc. Would you believe him? Answer: Well, if that's his brand of love, give me nice, decent hate. Unless you are not only blind but dumb you arc bound to soe thai tliis man has no spark of real affection for you .and that his only object in marrying you is to got a female slave. Fortunately for you ho is so avaricious that he shows his intentions of grabbing every cent you make and putting it iii his own pocket. And that gives you a chance to save yourself from a miserable marriage. When the world is full of good, kind, lender, generous men who would love you and protect you and make you happy, why do yr.u oven think of marrying this he'd'.' Dear Dorothy Dix: I am 20 years old and have a child, a boy "of :>. I 1 want lo marry, bul 1 do no'l know how. to go about mooting a man who would be a good husband and father lo my son. Please advise me what lo do. K. S. Ii. Answer: Lady, that is the !j>(H C|uot,tion llial Ihousands of women would like to have answered, but no one knows how to do it.
