Before a week had passed, through his lawyer, Dan Reynolds was offered a position in a Boston brokerage house. It was such a good offer, with opportunity for advancement, that no young man would be able to turn it down. Especially a young man who did not have any other prospects. "I like the lad's spunk," Sam Blair chuckled over the reply his lawyer had received. "He says he accepts, but only because he feels obligated to accept any offer made 'jy his benefactor—and only on condition that he be paid just what he proves to be worth." Not many young men would have put in such a stipulation. There was no doubt about it, this lad in whom Sally had taken such an interest was made of the right K i u i r, To say that Sally was thrilled at the thought that she would see Dan again would be pu cling it mu . cl1 , to ° '"'Idly. After her father told her that Dan was expected the following Monday, Sally scarcely could sleep a wink. Only 48 hours and Dan would be in Boston. Only 24 hours and he would have started on his way. Unly 12 hours, only eight—and at last Monday had arrived and although she had not seen him, Sally could hug the thought to her heart that Dan was living nearby was working in one. of her father's offices. » * * TJOWEVER, therein lay the "hitch," as Sally expressed it. Dan did not know that he was employed by Sally's father. 'He must not find it out, which only served to strengthen the aforementioned "hitch." • And oven that was not the worst of it. Now that Sally had Dan so near at hand, how was she going to manage to see him? She puzzled her pretty head over this for several days. Then Corey, Who still was squiring her around collecting his debt, gave her the solution. ^ "You'll never guess who I ran into today," Corey said. This was at a gathering of "the gang" in the big recreation room at Babe Fairchild's house. "Right here in Boston," Corey added. "You could have knocked me over with a feather." "I'd like 'to try that," Pudge said. He doubled his fists and gave Corey a poke in his ribs. They pretended to spar for a minute or so, with Pudge steering to his corner after Corey administered a knockout blow. Pudge always played n willing "stooge" for Corey's clowning. "You didn't say who it was you saw," Sally reminded, after she had controlled her laughter. There was no doubt about it, Corey was fun. He always managed to bo the life of the party. Sally put her question in all innocence. It never occurred to her that Corey's answer would make her heart start thumping madly and offer the solution to her problem. * * * "TT was Reynolds," Corey said. "Limp and all." Corey did not mean to be callous or poke fun. He merely endeavored to be amusing. "I hardly could believe my eyesight at first. Thought maybe I'd had one snifter too many. Had just left the Mandarin bar. But no, it was old Danny m person. I pulled up at the curb and offered to give, him a lift." "He was the wonder on skis, wasn't he?" Babe asked. "Sort of a Creek god with a Barrymore profile and a touch-me-not oil." "He was the guy who saved Sallys neck," Pudge put in. He made a gesture as though cutting off his own neck with an imaginary and magnificent flourish. What in heck is Reynolds doing in our fair city? Thought he hailed from upstate in the backwoods somewhere. He had to drop out of college after his accident you know." "Did you give him a lift?" Sally asked. They did not know how then- light remarks struck home bringing the warm color into her cheeks, a sharp pain in her breast. Corey shook his head. "He wouldn't let me," he said "Insisted he preferred to hoof it, even though he had a bad leg." • "Do you have to keep harping on that?" Sally broke in. Her dark eyes Hashed. She pulled away from Corey, whose, arm circled the back of the couch on which they were sitting. She got up and crossed the recreation room to shut off the interminable record machine. "This eternal racket makes my head ache," she explained. It had been a gay dance tune and it made Sally's heart ache, as well. tp '25^ I ' 1 . 1 be ' ' '" C °™y muttered. He simply could not understand Sally lately. She must have the jitters over something. Maybe she- still felt she was to blame for Reynolds' smashup. Which was silly. It was just the.break Jhaf S0 TJE pulled himself up from the * couch, loo, went over to her. See here, Sally my sweet," he lowered his voice, "you aren't taking this on your slender shoulders are you? Reynolds' bad luck, I mean. He'd be a heel if lie held it against you. And you'd be one u you let him." "He wouldn't hold that against me," Sally returned. What Dan held against her went much deeper. But she did .not want Corey, or any of the others to know how much that mattered t» her. Sho picked up a pingpon* racket, served a ball neatly O vw | the net. "My shoulders are broad enough to take what's coming t? me," she told Corey. "Even though I am just a party gal—on the surface." It was then the answer to* her problem as to how she was to get to see Dan prc.sorJ.ed itself to her. "Which reminds me," she- raised her voice so that the •'est of the young people could 'hear, 1m throwing a party Saturdav At the New Theatre Thursday and Friday . " " |-w i t ^ OMI-UI Ua > night. To round off the spring vacation feslivitios. Incidentally Saturday also happens to be my birthday, so nil of y6u w-i herewith invited." This was greeted with a shout of approval, from everyone, during winch Sajly again lowered her voice, and turned to Corey. "I want you to do something lor me. As a special favor," she dimpled at him. "I W unt you to promise you'll bring Don Reynolds to my birthday party. Corey" "I'll do that little thing—since you put it that way." Corey said lightly. But he saw through Sally now. She had t.-.ken the blame lor Reynolds' accident upon her own shoulders. Unless he missed his guess, which usually came close, there was even more to it than that. "I'll bring Dan along all right," Corey said. He, too, picked up a pingpong racket. Come on, my sweet. I'll beat you at this game." And he would beat her—or anybody else—at any other. For Corey Porter felt he had no rivalry to fear from Dan Reynolds, who could never amount to a great deal in any place .now Sure, he'd bring Dan to Sally's party—Dan could hardly refuse. if Corey invited him. Sally would see then that a fellow like Dan could not fit in with their gav crowd. She would see that the poor lug was a washout now. She probably had admired the King of Skis; maybe even imagined she had lost her heart to him No doubt she mistook pity now for something else. But it should be simple for Corey to set SalN right again. (To Be Continued) By Olive Roberts Barlon School Happy in Bringing Christmas to Poor Pupils. Miss Werner said to Miss Campbell 'I used to do a lot of fussing over the loor children at Christmas, but now hat they are on relief and all the wel- are committees in town collect toys nd make them over, I have stopped. Anyway, when you're young, you get 11 excited about poverty. Wait until you have taught as many years as ] have. Maybe you won't be breaking your heart about something you can't help." "I''iiV not breaking my heart exactly," smiled Miss Campbell. "I'm getting the kick of my life planning those packages." Alter the other teacher had gone, the pretty young head of Grade 3 called up the stairs: "Did Dave get my message, Mr. Broom?' I wanted him to .stop on his way home." "Here 1 am, Miss Campbell. Sorry I'm late." "Oh, Dave, did you go around to those addresses 1 gave you? The truant officer said he would take you along." "Yes 1 did, Miss Campbell. You won't make any mistake sending those poor kids so'm'e things. Honestly they haven't—well, you just go and see for yourself sometime." "I have been to a few homes," sighed Miss Campbell. "But the rest were too far away and I haven't much time. Did you get the paint? And the wire? Let me see. I can't spend much more. It has cost about a dollar and a half so far. What does your mother think?'' "She thinks it's swell. And all the fellows and girls do. We've been gathering up odds and ends of everything from our reations and neighbors." "That's fine," said the teacher. "Now, Dave, how many of you will be nt my house tonight? Ten? Good for you." That evening a crowd of earnest boys and girls of the upper grades met together to make over Christ'mJis toys. The dining room had been turned into a workshop. Three nights later, bulky packages were finished and ready. A dozen big ones, all done up gaily in red and green, with sprigs o f j, o jj y in thejl , bows. The night before Christmas they were laid at the doors of children would otherwise Ijave had no Christmas at all. This happened several years ago. It has become a custom for the older pupils in that school to help make a Christmas for the poor choldren in the lower grades.
