CHAPTER XII CALL* was furious with Corej for corning out to interrupt her talk with Dan just then. She knew he had done it purposely. She was furious with him for re-j fen-ing to the dare before Dan, But it did not seem to bother Dan. When Sally said quickly, "Oh, but I just asked Dan to be my partner!" Dun smiled and said, "That's all right, Corey. Sally can be your pin-trier — especially if she owes it to you in payment for eonie dare. I was just telling her that I feel I must leave. I "only came for a little while tonight. I'm going to call a cab." Sally was so disappointed she could have cried. "You're not going to do anything of the sort!" she said. "Please don't go, Dan." Her birthday party would indeed have proved a failure if Dan did that. "I really must," Dan returned quietly. His gray eyes smiled into hers. Perhaps he meant that he knew he did not belong in her world yet. But perhaps that smile meant that in time he might. For he added in his same grave manner that somehow said more than the words themselves, "You are forgetting a lot of things, Sally. As Corey told you. You're forgetting now that we are friends I'm going to come soon again." "In that case," Sally returned, as gravely as he, "I'll let you go, if you really feel you must." Long ufter he had gone she remembered what he had said — "now that we are friends." She knew that Dan did not give friendship lightly. She knew he would not have said that unless he really had meant it. He had said, too, that he would come to see her soon again. Oh! hugging these thoughts to her heart, Sally could afford to be Corey's partner for the grand march, during the birthday dinner. She could well be gay and light-lmarted, bubbling over with fun and laughter. was Corey now who wore his stubborn look. Sally was paying up her debt— he had her for his partner — but somehow Corey knew that ho had not come off victor, after nil. Could it possibly bo that Sally really imagined herself interested in Reynolds just because she felt sorry for him? Hadn't she realized that Dan did not fit in? Hadn't she seen how different he was from all their friends? Had Corey only realized that very difference was what drew Sally to Dan. It was far more than just pity or remorse. It was something that lay within this odd boy himself, his fine courage, his high principles, his simple honesty. Sally was to hear her father praise Dan for much those same qualities a few days after her birthday party. "Tin's young Reynolds is getting along very well," Sam Blaii*tin- formed his daughter, during their twilight stroll. "I talked with Frank Devons today and he said the lad certainly is a worker. Steady, conscientious, ambitious. He is bound to make good. Just to show you the .sort ol. stuff the lad has, Devons says thai Dan walks back and forth to work every day— and -it's a hike of several good miles, too! — but that's only the beginning. It seems that instead of taking the elevator Reynolds c limb s those seven flights of steps, day after day." "Whatever makes him do that?" Sally asked. If only her father knew how his words ot praise warmed her heart, how proud they made her of Dan. "It seems," Mr. Blair explained, "that Doctor Hartford told the boy it was entirely up to him whether his leg ever got as good as it was again. Hartford told the lud he would lose that limp in time if he Devons- to send young Reynolds out tomorrow night with some papers for me. I thought when tho lad came you might want to be here." There was a twinkle in her father's fond look at this, A twinkle- that deepened as he saw the lovely color flooding Sally's face, the tell-tale delight that brightened her dark eyes. "Sometimes," Sally said, "I think you're the best Dad that ever lived." She stood on tiptoo to give him a fierce squeeze, a warm ta- ress. "I shouldn't tell you <hat, though," she added, dimpling. "You know I've been spoiling you dreadfully lately." She fluffed up the pillow in his big chair, pulled up a stool, sat clown to unlace his heavy shoes, to hand him his slippers, now that their walk was finished. This was a little loving service she performed each evening. "Turn about is fair enough," her father declared. How he enjoyed being spoiled! And he used to think this daughter of his was wrapped up only in her own young frivolous thoughts and plans. They had got very close these past few months, from the time Sally had insisted she was not going back to school, that she wanted to remain at home with him. From the time of her skiing accident, as a matter of record. Had that made the change in Sally? That — and this new boy, Dan Reynolds? * # # r POMORROW night Dan was coming out again. Already Sally's pretty head began to spin with ideas. She would ask Dan to stay for dinner. She would insist upon it. He could not refuse now that they were friends. Since he had promised, on her birthday night, that he would come again. This time there would be no Corey to interrupt. Spring vacation was over. Corey, and most of made up hi.s mind to it. And iti 1rie rest of their friends, had gone also seems," Sam Blair chuckled, | b ac k to college. She would not see "that tin- boy is bound to prove Corev again until graduation. Bethe great surgeon's words. out to BI-I. the best of that — and, unless I miss my guess, the will do it!" * * * nPHAT was tho best thins Sally X had heard in all nor life. That one day Dan's leg might be v tho same as it had been, that he might walk as he had before. That would again until graduation He's f oro ~] le i e ft he had insisted Sally promise that she would come up lad i 0 Dartmouth for that. This time, tomorrow evening, Sally would have Dan all to herself again. He would not feel out of place, as he had with her friends. He would fit in very well al a quiet dinner with her father and herself. He would see that mean that one clay Dan might ski. again, too! This thought was so tremendous, so wonderful that Sally was almost afraid to allow herself to think about it. Though maybe if she believed it hard enough, maybe if she borrowed with them—people who understood him and admired and liked him just for what he was—that he did belong. Oh, the world was a wonderful place! It was wonderful to be alive, to care for someone as she some of Dan's high courage and did for Dan. Even when Dan did faith, this prayer would be an-j lot know it, or if he did, would swercd. < not accept it, It was wonderful to "By the way," her father added,; be in love! as they went indoors, "f asked I CAST OP <;HAJlACTF.nS SAM,V lll.AIII.— her,,),,,.. shfi liail everything i|,,,, popularity irttlllll will her, rxccpt IJAN HKV.VOI.ns— . h «. r „ He llllKhl Imve liniJ Sully Imf iviiile.

Dinner was a very pleasant affair. Mr. Blair led the young man on, drawing him into conversation, encouraging him to give his viewpoint on various topics, business, politics, world problems, even bringing him to talk of more personal matters, as well. Dan proved to be a most interesting talker, once he. forgot his reserve, and, what is even more important, a good listener. Sally's father appeared to enjoy his company thoroughly, so much so that as the lovely spring evening wore on, Sally wondered if she was going to have Dan to herself or not! "I've about talked myself hoarse," her father said, throwing away his cigar after one last puff. "Now I'm going on indoors" — they had been making their tour of the garden — "and leave you young people to yourselves." He had that twinkle in his eye as he beamed on them. He thought what a fine looking pair of youngsters they were, his Sally looking prettier than usual, it seemed, in her fluffy white dress with its wide skirt and blue sash, her dark curls held in place with a matching ribbon, her dark eyes bright, this young Reynolds — and a finer boy Sam Blair had yet to meet! — trim and well groomed in his neat gray suit, his gray eyes so steady, his face a bit flushed up, too, from the earnestness of some of his pet theories which he had" been expounding. "It's too fine a night to go in," the boy protested. "We're glad of your company, sir. I can't begin to thank you for your hospitality, or tell you how much I have appreciated it." "You will always find a welcome in our home, won't he, Sally?" Mr. Blair returned in his hearty way. There was no nonsense about this boy. Maybe because he realized that life was a serious, as we'll a beautiful gift. Maybe because he had to earn his way. Take boys like young Corey, whose fpthers had too much money, their paths were made too smooth for them; maybe it was not altogether their fault if they did not develop as much character as they should. Humphries "MO, I'll be going indoors," ^Sally's father said. He; had not forgotten whnt it was to be young on a night like this. "It is a fine night, as you say, my lad, But Ihfcrt'K also a touch of dampness that won't do this old man's rheumatics any good. You two youngsters look at the moon and talk about less serious matters for a spell. And don't iorgot to come out and share dinner with us again. Whether you've papers to deliver from Frank Devon's offices or not." He chuckled to himself as he went on indoors. What a matchmaker he was turning out to bel But if the day had to come when he had to lo::e his little girl Sam Blair had satisfied himself that he would not mind losing her so much to a fine young man like this Reynolds. Oh, he had had his own motives in procuring the lad a job, in inviting him into his home. It was just as well to size a person up by personal contact. "What a lucky girl you are, Sally Blair," Dan said. "To have such a man for your father. You must be mighty proud of him." Sally said, "I most certainly am." She was so pleased that her father and Dan had got on so we)]. She might have known they would. That only went to prove how right she was in knowing that Dan did belong in her world—the real world that lay underneath the gaudy, glittering surface. Her father had been a poor boy like Dan once; he had had to make his own way up and he had succeeded by his own efforts. "I didn't know," Dan was saying, "that your father was a client of Devon and Devons. I certainly was surprised when Mr. Frank Devon asked me to bring those papers out here this evening. It certainly was a coincidence, wasn't it?" * * * C ALLY laughed lightly. She gathered her wide skirt carefully as she sat down on a stone bench al the far end of the rose garden, a bench that would give them a box-seat, if they wanted to look at the moon, as her father had advised them. "Yes, it was, wasn't it?" she said. Some day she would tell Dan the whole truth of the matter. That her father had got him his position at Devon and Devons. That, as a matter of fact, Sam Blair was the biggest stockholder in the firm. But this was not the time, or the place. Not with a moon like that. "Aren't you going to sit down?" Sally asked, dimpling up at him. Her father had said they should talk of less serious matters. "Aren'1 you going to look at the moon, Dan Reynolds? See, it's looking at us! It's wondering what wo are think- ng about and if we really appreciate a lovely night like this." H was a night made just for ooking at the moon. A night of soft spring air that was like a caress, of sighing breex.es and whispering small insects. A night made, perhaps, just for them. Dan sat down beside her. He said, "I'm thinking what a lucky • guy I am to be here—looking at this moon. You know, Sally, everything is a coincidence in a vay. Beginning with the accident, ending with my coming here. Have ' told you how that came about?" •iis gray eyes rested on her earnestly. How pretty she was, like some silver princess in her white dress in the moonlight. Sally Blair, queen of her small secure universe n which he still felt an alien, i'ould continue to feel so until he fiade his own way, conquered his Dad leg, proven himself. "No, you haven't told me," Sally said. She wished he would let that wail until some other time and place, too. She wished she need not keep the truth from him, even for a little while. Suppose he found out, before she had a chance to tell him? Suppose he misunderstood again? * * * "RUT she must not, she would not JJ think of things like that. Not with the moon looking do%vn on them, not on a night like this. "Tell me another time," Sally said. "Let's just be happy tonight, shall we? Happy and gay. Let's just be glad that you are here, whether it's a coincidence or luck or fate, or whatever it is. Let's be content to know that we are friends." "That should be enough for anyone," Dan returned gravely. Then he smiled at her. He picked up her hand, so small and soft, that lay between them. "I'll be content with that—for a while, Sally Blair. But not for always." He raised her hand toward his lips—rfor a breathless moment, during which Sally's heart nearly stopped beating, she thought he was going to put it against them. But instead he put it gently- down between them once more. "Some day—when I've licked a few things that have rather got the best of me now," Dan said, "someday I'll tell you why I shan't be satisfied with that always. But we must wait awhile, Sally. You will wait, won't you—until then?" "Yes," Sally said, and her voice held all the breathless wonder of the beauty of the night, "I'll wait, Dan." Forever would not be too long to wait, if that waiting brought what she hoped it would bring for them.

Pittman Called Spokesman The newspaper referred to a "beneficial statement of facts" issued yesterday by Pittman to express, as he said, his personal view that the American people" do not like" the governments of Japan and Germany.

But it is worse—Pittman is spokesman of a certain group which sees in Minister of Interior Ickes its leadership whip.
