Then one night the telephone rintx with an ur- «rcnt mcHaamc for her father. ••What IM it«" she cries out. CHAPTER XIX JUDY knew that she mustn't let " go like this. It was probably nothing important. She was imagining things:- But into her mind had come the picture of planes flying over a dark sea, and she could hear again Jack Hanley's voice saying, '"We had . casualty." Nothing had happened to him. No. No! Nothing could happen. He was the best flyer in the squadron. Her mother opened the door, a negligee thrown hastily about her shoulders. "Judy!" she said, drawing the girl inside. "Father, what is it?" Judy gasped, as he put down the telephone. His face was suddenly flint hard, with narrowed, tired eyes. The lines around his mouth had sprung into prominence. It was as if the quiet man she knew had suddenly slumped 'under the weight of all the responsibility of his position. He said heavily, "That was Naval Communications. They have picked up a message. I must go at once." "What message?" Judy asked. "Oh, tell me!" He said slowly, "We have 1 no information—no complete information." "Was begged. an accident—something about the planes?" Her motht-r tried to hush her. "Come, Judy." She led her from the room, back into her o'--;i bedroom. She said, "Your father has told you all he knows, can't you see? Don't worry him. He has so much to bear!" In her eyes was the memory of all the other times Admiral Alcott had been waked in the night by a cry of distress. Judy herself remembered vividly the night a merchantman rarnrned a submarine, it the Enterprise?" she "Please toll me! Was it . and nighjs without sleep, getting tj i fcvery vessel under his command ^ as W£ U as to the scone of trie tragedy. The Falcon, t u g j o a t s, submarines. Divers to go down. Emergency .equipment from New London. All of it had been his responsibility. And when in the end, there had been little they could do in that like a man whose heart has died inside him. he had said, 'Nothing I can do—" amount to?" "Nothing." He never 0 . . wi j^vciy iiya. s wuc. j.uc wuj.us once spoke of the men who had repeated themselves over and over died, trapped under the sea. But in Judy's mind. She wasn't Jack's she knew ho had never forgotten. w jf e \vhy was she carrying on she knew ho had never forgotten. And her mother knew. * * * JUDY cried wildly, "But if it's " the Enterprise, they wouldn't have called Father. Just tell me it':, something else! I could stand anything else!" Through her open window she stop with a heard the squeal of big car brakes. The enlisted . man who chauffeured it had lost no time in getting here. Then the front door slammed. Her father was gone. He would be driven swiftly to the Communications building at the foot of Broadway. Somehow, someway, she must live through this time. In the morning, she'd know all about it. But she couldn't beaY the waiting. She said, "It's like — like that time at Lakehurst — everybody was crying in the commandant's house — " Her mother said, "It may not be the Enterprise." But she didn't sound very convincing. Judy cried, "You, you know! He told you!" "Judy, you mustn't carry on like this." Her face was tired, too, and her mouth drooped. "He didn't tell me anything. I — I couldn't ask—" There was no sleep for Judy that night. She tried to control herself, she tried to remember that if anything had happened at sea, Naval Communications would not call her father. The commander of the battle f9rce would be in charge. But wasn't he on the Pennsylvania? And on the Saratoga was the office of .the man directly in charge of plane carriers. She racked her brains, to remember the name of the officer on the station who worked with the airplane carriers. What officer ashore would be called if it was actually trouble on the Enterprise? * * * CHE was too keyed up, too *~' shaken, to think coherently. Her mother said sharply, "This is silly, Judy! It might be any one Liicmuiicui rammed a SUDmarme, °"*Ji ""uj; *t uugjii, ue any iwie and her father had worked days °* r - nal * dozen more or less :-ou- and nights without sleeo. getting ^ ne emergencies, and you know But Judy cried, "I tell you, I can feel this. I've been thinking about the Enterprise all night. . . . Like a premonition of disaster." Her mother said, "Nonsense!" She added, more kindly, "Every r ^ -"-' --"«-«>- •" -""V •-»«= av.v.v.u, mute K.mujy, nivcrf sara— iney said two planes were choppy sea to raise the doomed flyer's wife in the Navy has pre- down.

As if her mother's thoughts had followed her own, Mrs. Alcott said softly, "I know Jack is very dear to you. But even if your premonition is right, and the trouble has something to do with the Enterprise, remember there are many men aboard her. Dozens of other flyers. ... It isn't Jack. It can't be." The telephone rang again, imperiously. Judy jumped. "I'll take it," her mother said quietly. "Hello? Yes, this is Mrs. Alcott." There was a silence. Then her mother's face seemed to gray as it listened, and she said at last, "My dear, I'm so sorry! So sorry! But they can't be sure yet. It may be a mistake. Oh, we'll come at once, my child!" Mrs. Alcott turned to Judy. "That was Diane Bell. She says the skipper's wife telephoned her. They think—they think—Bill—" "God!" Judy's nails punched into the soft flesh of her palm. But in the next moment, choking relief flooded her. Little drops of moisture stood on her upper lip. She sobbed, "Not Jack!" over and over, as if even now she was afraid. "Not Jack!" * * * TJER mother's arm slid around her shoulder. "Darling, you must quiet down. ' He Couldn't want you to act this way nw matter what happened." And the»j she said, "We must dress quickly. \We must get to Diane at once." Judy put her stockings on in b daze. She took out the first dress-, her fingers touched as they groped in. the closet, and slipped into it, zipping it up while her heart pounded. Jack was safe. Jack. And in that moment, realization like a high green .vave washed over her. All her dread had been lor Jack. Never, never had she worried this way for Dwight. Why—why- could that mean—did it possibly mean—that she loved him? She sat down on the bed. This agony that had racked her because she Blevins Mr. and Mrs. J. A.
