EIGHTEEN SUNDAY TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., SyNpAY.VQCTpBER 1, 1944 The Lost Weekend ••M<| on HM powerful, bast-selling novtl of ftvf unforfWtfbU 4«ys in a men's lifo '•'' '' ' ' ''' ! • • ' •L CHARLES JACKSON iUwtratl*iu By F. R, Gr»«er Qv Hl^ MiMt TOdWCI Vp OH O The KTMH vxplocUd in nob* ... Don gripped tfv« choir. H« o*k«d She screamed, "Mi*t«r he's cheating mel" Gripped, by remorse, Don-Btrnam «at theri» on the : couch trying, to reason things out—tha never accomplished anything,. tha continual failure, the falling even to try, the disgust of friends and family, Two m«n leaned from a stairway and called, to him .... .Don sprang into the too cold shower. only the loss . of reputation—the loss ever,: the one robbery, Who.steals my.purse steals trash .v . But he that filches from me my good name—And 'who ...was doing that for .him, who but. himself? He ait up. In an.instant he was off the couch. He all but;crouched as .if a voice had .thundered at him, Wh8 steals my purse-;- Fear . hit him. The foggy memory of the events of the evening before suddenly cleared. He had to get. out of here. He looked at the clock. It was twenty minutes to eight. Bars opened at eight. He put on his shoes and pulled Up his tie. But why hurry? Twenty mlntes. took a hell of a •while. He sat down on the couch. • What was he ever going to do now? To, visit Jack's for:the entire rest of his life was out of the question. How could he even go down to the Village, Well, he. didn't need to. He could stay uptown. Could? He'd have to. Would anyone ever have believed that he would sink so low. as to steal a woman's purse? The attempt was bad enough: the being-caught was worse; To .expose yourself as a common 1 thief before a^.whole bar full of people— — -.-... . He went into the bathroom^ labsshed his collar and : bessri shave.. One thing 'they 'could never s&y about -him; he--was:never not neat. He still had some-pride and self-respect left. But what good did it do him? Control 'was. gradually slipping away. Who knew what he might not do next? I've got to watch myself. - There was no sense in going d6wn now and cooling your heels in front of a bar that hadn't opened yet. Or maybe this damned clock was slow. He went in the bedroom, pick- ed up the phone and dialed .the time operator. She said it - wss "Seven flfty-fle-yuv and thrrree- quarters." ; He found his coat and vest in a heap on the floor. He went through the pockets, spread the money on a table and counted it. There was twenty-six dollars and something. Talk* about windfalls. Today of all days! He did not go to Sam's place/Not because Gloria would be there (she didn't.come till noon). But he wanted to start .off someplace else, today. Maytojf Sam's later. He went to a ]lttle"bar-and-grill Just below 55^h. The bartender was on time... "Rye, please.".The bartender looked over . at him. "Double?" Don checked an impulse to draWhimaeif up. "No!" Where had the guy got that Idea? He Ignored .the drink for a minute or two. He picked up a newspaper and glanced at it. Then he looked at the drink critically and drank. ., ' .--.'.. He ordered another and faced the mirror. There was no sense in workr ing himself into a fright because of something that .had happened last night when he wasn't responsible. But in spite of his rationalizing, his body began to get hot, -his palms sweated; it .was shame. He drank the second drink In one swallow, and a third, and in a moment-he felt better; Now he could, „_ begin to take it easy, why riot—he om_ had several days,-plenty money, he - to shsdn'S: .si-sere in lh* world; Absurd; cheating little glasses. A dozen of these wouldn't be the"eq\sivalent of the kind.-he drank from at home. The bartender slid the bottle across the counter. ' . Of course they had let him go last night. They didn't want any trouble with the police, did they? Quickly he picked up the bottle and poured another drink. The bartender was watching him from the corner of his eye. He tried to talk to the bartender than but got only short answers. Don said, "What's the matter, you tired or something?" The bartender said, "I'm busy, Jack." It was silly staying 'on in this stinking place. The bartender was a suspicious crab, .• it was nine o'clock, the liquor store would be open. He paid and left, He stood in the store and deliberated. A quart .would be 'enough for how; he'd be out again later. Scotch for -a change! He felt a sense of luxury as he came' into the fiat; the day was .his, the drink, the whole place.' ..•'.. He opened the lid of the gramophone and set going the record that was on. He poured himself a decent drink, carried it to the big chair in the corntr arid sat down. Schnable.was hammering out inf. Rondo of the Waldstein. As the music increased in volume, as the new drink warmed his stomach, he lay back in the big chair, and deliberately and consciously : went into his favorite daydream.' It was a dream he could re-live forever. He came. out on -the stage of Carnegie Hall, smiled, bowed, sat down, at the piano and waited the assignment. He was in gray flannels and a white shirt. The music critics gave htm the name of the first work he was to play. The • packed house waited and Mr, Blrnam began . . . The Rondo was finished. Don got but the first movement and food when he -was'drinking. This proved he wasn't tight at -all- if he was thinking of food. He'd go get a sandwich or two at the delicatessen. . Nearing the store, he passed a mox-ie. My God, Garbo! In Camille rio less. . He looked at the stills tacked up on a board 'outside. He'd already seen It three times but he loved it and he slid.his quarter under the glass and. went in. . Upstairs, he groped his way to a seat near the;front arid stared at the screen. Two men in drab cotton jumpers sat at a wooden table peeling potatoes. Damn it, a prison picture. Double feature? Why hadn't he found out?''He decided to doze until/ Garbo .came on ,and lie slumped in his chair. . . . A burst of machine-guns knocked nim nearly out of his seat. What was going oh—where the hell was he? He gripped, the chair and stared. The screen exploded in noise —a prison break—dut-dut-dut-dut- dut-dut. Had he .been -asleep? How long? An illuminated clock said two-fifteen. This couldn't last much longer. Garbo would bs on any minute. But suddenly he couldn't wait either.. He grabbed..up his hat and left, stopping in at the bar next door for a drink. . ,"H1, Jack," the bartender -said, sure. This WHS the one he'd went to his chair again: A dream indeed. Comic, to be sure, ridiculous, childish; . but most musical, melancholy.;- 5 , .:-.-.....,.., ..... He turned: the v'olumn button up full.

Soldier Vote Rules •' Many requests for absentee ballots, because o'f irregularities, cannot be honored, it is revealed. • In a number of instances the applicant failed to give any local address, or gave several. Many others, used to printing their name in the upper right-hand corner of V-mail, printed their signature instead of writing It, as required. At the same time, there arc many, duplicate applications. Only one, made out correctly, is required and only one, of course, will be honored, election officials said. Here are the absentee-ballot request rules: An application must contain the voter's full name, Maryland residence (street and house number Where they exisfc)' and address to which ballot is to be sent. If you have no Maryland residence now, the last one before going into the service should be used. The request for a ballot should be sent to the Secretary of State, Annapolis, Md., or your home city or county election board. If you did not get a State ballot by yesterday, you may vote the Federal war ballot, provided you take oath that a State ballot was sought prior to September '1, 1944. CAPTURED JJeut. . John S.

Tbs guy Suit little today Sam .was a nice guy but Don would never forget how mad he got once when Don had drunk at the bar for hours and then admitted he was broke. He hadn't gone back for a while.after that but when he did, and paid, 'everything was all right. Now he always made a point of paying after the flrst drink Just to show Sam he had it. He was feeling, just swell. This was the way to be. Relaxed and calm and warm inside. What a boon liquor could be when you used it right. 'The drinks were hardly affecting him st all. He could even speed things up a little. Might as well get some lift out of the after- lalf-past nine, broad daylight. He looked for the bottle. It was on the able. A great'big quart. Large as life arid twice .as'empty. He got up and realized how. weak he' was. Fool; what was the matter with:his brain, if any?. Why did he never save a drink? Well, the liquor stores'were open; it was Saturday He knew that rnuch. They coulc deliver. He picked up his jacket and ves> to find the money first. He went through the pockets. Then he put the coat down because the money must be hi his pants. It wasn't. He began' to feel panic. He went through the whole routine. There had been more than twenty-five dollars yesterday. Where was it? You couldn't spend twenty- five, dollars at Sam's no matter how hard you tried. Had,he lost it? Well, he'd find some other way He got his por table- type writer anc set it in the foyer.; He'd have to shave. He couldn't go out like this To the corner was all right but not as .far as the pawnshop. His hands shook but ,he managed, the swea stood out on his forehead. What had become of the money? Maybe he. better go look again. No,j he wasn't going to'drive'himself crazy doing that. He'd looked. Helen, of, course, was trying, to check up on him. - That was the telephone.. We ]1 !-. s hej wcmldn'i-get him. He., sat down.; in the living room, panting, his-heart pounding. It. was : exhaustion. Physically,: he had; reached bottom. Could he. possibly make -the pawnshop,' carrying a typewriter? Still, if there was a bottle.to be had.. . . he-got.up. .He'made the : corner and turned, north, into the swarming, clanging shouting hell that was 2nd Avenue on a Saturday morning. , The three dimly gold : balls hung out over the street far ahead. He doggedly put one foot in front of the other. Overhead the L roared. His nerves were so Jumpy he didn't dare trust his senses. Horns shrilled at him. He turned into the entrance of the pawnshop at last.and bumped into a .closed iron gate ... ' Don stood back and looked at the gate drawn across the entrance to the pawnshop and' locked. He look- noon. Gloria came out. afternoon!" "Gloria!- Good She came up. "Oh, I'm okay today. Is that it? What do you mean 'today 1 ? You're one hundred per cent with me. Let me buy you a drink." --"Maybe I need it. "Usual, Sam." They talked while she sipped the drink Sam set before her, probably Gloria wasn't feeling ~~ "at of ginger ale. too happy. home and she was leaving, she said. Don said, "I'd certainly There was trouble' thinking think twice, Gloria..' Or even thrice. Home Isn't something you can find Just any day of the week. I know about homes." "Are you married?" "I'm married, yes." He swished the Ice slowly around in the glass. He sighed. Gloria listened wide- eyed to the fanciful tale he tolei of the beautiful, wealthy but cold wife, the two bright young sons, the city and country homes which had no real love in them. She was sorry for him. He said, "Gloria, do me a favor. Go out with me tonight." She held back but he pressed, "You'd make m« a very happy man." At last she agreed; he could call for her at 8:30. "I'll be here on the dot," h« said. When he walked Into the street, he realized he was suddenly very tight, drink What he needed was a stiff to bring him around. He poured one at home and carried It to the big chair. He shook out a cigarette and fished for a' match. He came up with a advertising "JACK'S papf.r folder in Charles Street—WHERE GOOD FELLOWS GET TOGETHER. Close Cover Before Striking Match," If It wasn't one thing it was another. He filled the glass half .full and then half again. He wouk drink more slowly and feel himself go and appreciate the going. He feH over on the couch in sudden sleep .... ;.'A telephone was ringing (some where. Don opened hia eye*. Where WM he: Home? . His mother's? ph here. He listened to the phone. It stopped and he closed his eyes, relieved. It bgan to ring again, atlng Ing him like some nasty metallic kind of gnat. He'd never answer It. The phone finally stopped ringing. He looked at the clock. It Jaycees Release Anniversary list )iie Hundred and Seven In Service Huve!

A .cruel and fiendish trick but somewhere there would be another. He,squtnted ahead; several'blocks off three golden balls hung over the sidewalk. He ran into the inferno that was 59th street. The traffic was incoherent bedlam, trolleys danged and the L exploded overhead. His eyes fixed, he staggered on. What flend ever gave the name portable to a portable? It was a solid block of lead. His feet burned!' He came up and the shop was shuttered by a grey iron' gate. Affecting indifference, he went on. There was another pawnshop in the distance ahead. He stumbled on, turning 'to avoid being bumped by the rollerskating terrors of brats, the baby carriages, the young women, the fat women, the old old-world women. One woman suddenly.dashed away from a pushcart, grabbed Don's arm and screamed in his ear: "Mister he's cheating me, 'you help me you help me!" He recoiled in panic and stumbled off.

He leaned against It and pushed, pounded and fell against It in collapse. Two men. leaned from a dark stairway next to the shop. They called to him. Dazedly, he heard them ask what was the matter with him. Didn't he know it was Yom KIppur? The walk back from 120th xtreet was a nightmare but he made It. It was drink that did It—the lacfc'of it and the need for it—and he might have been spared some of the torment ir only: he had had sense enough to remind himself of this when so often those waves of sickness and exhaustion seemed sure to -drop him. > -.: With the:proml« of drink at the end 'of the Jouniey. somehow, someway (he'd find .that way yet, he always had), there was nothing- he could not have'; gone through.
