.{ EIGHTEEN SUNDAY TIMES, CUMBERLAND, MD., SUNDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1944 The Lost Weekend Based en the powerful, best-selling novel of fir* unforgettable days in • man's life BL CHARLES JACKSON. lustrations By F. R. Grvcer What was to going to do about liquor now? A tine of fire ran across the rug toward hfa fee* ... CHAPTER 9 With the first drtak in his hand, Don sat down to puzzle out the story of the hat and the halt-full mart. Sure. Of course. The two ladies In the front apartment. He remembered now the polite little titt on the stairs—after you; no, after you—and the falling, They had found his hat and got Oava the • Janitor to let them in. They cleaned the place—took away ih* nasty bottle. But with this other, maybe he could smile. How was it possible that he had only lour nickels in his pocket thl* morning? He knew damned well now that he had, had more than six dollsre when he started out yesterday. Where in God's name was it going to? Th* drink wanned him all inside, at usual; and took away the fatigue »nd Jumping nerves, as usual. But ' easy, there, this was all you had He poured another and walked over to inspect the bookshelves. Looking over the novels, he thought ol the book* at homa in his father's library that had never been taken away when his father left. H« thought, too, of the letter to • his mother which he had found and read, "I will always loudly remember you and the boys." He had run upstairs and flung himself dowa.on 'tha bed and cried hi* eyes out weeping for his father. How could be do that to you—? He took a drink and searched for a book to read or think about He had an author too whose works . he had bound himself as a tribute to the writer he so dearly loved. He took down The Great Gatsby and ran his finger over the fine green, binding. "There's no suoh thing," he said aloud, "as a flawles. novel. But if there is, this is it. He nodded. The class looked am listened In complete attention, am one or two m»tifi notes. "Don't. t>. fooled by whst the Sunday review ers say of the Jazz age et cetera .People will be going back to Fitz gerflld one day as they now g back to Henry James." Don walked back and forth, tap ping the book in his hand. "I 1 rather have someone say of m •writing that it had energy thar beauty any day. You can writ badly and still b« a great novelis . .. -,"* H« paused to note the sur prised, gratified, or puzzled reac (ions of th« students. "One -word more. Fitzgerald never swerve* from the rule, "Don't writ • about anything you don't kno 1 anything about. Class dismissed." Ha put the book back oa th Blielf, feeling suddenly very foolisr and let down. Don was tired out. He poured fresh drink. The old pain was back, the head heavy. But th senses were dull too and you don mind 'a. bit. Put the glass down la heavy It -will spill, no drink i drink it to save it, then over to th He fell ouch for a little rest, eeply into a dream. He was In a vast low one-story uditorium like a gymnasium. Don sat on a rickety folding chair, other udents were closely packed in. They sat shoulder to shoulder, ressed together filling the entire oom. A man in a grey suit, grey shirt, 1th grey hair and grey hands tood on the platform and spoke ver the. murmuring of the crowd. ; was the foolish psychiatrist and Jon seemed to sense that the bur- en of the talk was himself. Heads to turn but the students did not see him. The murmurs grew o a great roar. The students rose up, chairs rashed arid tl^e building cav«d in. suddenly they were on the campus. Don's fraternity house was at the ar north-east corner. That's where Birnam wasl The crowd began to run, carrying him with them and the cry rose, "Get. Birnam! Get Birnam!" Was this, then, the end, this ynching? He ran on, propelled by he single purpose of the mob. Then, a little ahead, he saw someone who ought there—toward him? He saw he young agonized face, the bat- ling arms, the threshing shoulders if his younger brother. He might have known that Wick would turn up. Wick of all people In the world would not let It happen. The throng swept along oblivious of them. They touched lands. Wick pressed something Into lis palm. His fingers closed on a tiny box. Don snatched with his nails at the 1M, slammed the pills Into his mouth, and awcke in a. pool of wet on the floor beside the couch How he must have wept. The rug was dark with it. He was weep- ng still and could not stop. Worse there was no release from pain even now. In the stunning realization that tt had been only a dream. He knew it was a good dream, it told him where help lay but was no comfort. He wanted now to die. He go the bottle and drank the hot stuff as last as it would go down, drank it all. Choking and gagging, with tears streaming from his eyes, he groped his way to the bedroom. H< opened the door and fell upon th< bed. At once he went off agaii into a deep sleep, a sleep that lasted then, till 'the terrible day began the day of terror . . . Don TVBS awakened just befor dawn by the sound of the stree door slamming below. It was n more than a muffled thump but h wondered how he could have heari motionless, then the conversation I In sudden panic and listen wildly began. "What are we going to do about Don?" "Such a pity" Something's got to be done" . . . *We can't- go on like this much ionger >< ".~T~r~.He can t either" . . . •What are we going to do about Don?' .The terrifying thins was that the conversation was carried in whispers. He knew it was an hallucination. The beginning of breakdown? Delirium Is a disease of the night, he remembered. The thing to do was to-look at something, con- for it to go on. "He died a. thousand deaths"— aaahl Worse by far. It was one death drawn out In endless torture, a death you didn't die. You kept on centrate. Hs rrsi and stared fixedly at a small bust of hakespeare on the desk and the •hispering stopped. He closed his eyes and lay back. The whisperers said: What are we oing to do sbout-Donr-he eairt-g& n like this forever, something's ot to be done ... He got off the ed and stood up, suddenly realiz- ng that he was loudly clearing his hroat as 5f to v?arn them. He hut the bedroom door and got ack to the bed. Had that done it? But not any number of doors, not a thousand sound-proof vaults, would shut the whispering out. He might as well give up and listen . . What are we going to do about Don? The frill daylight finally drove hem away. But sleep was out of It at all. He lay listening. Footsteps cam up the stairs. He could not be sur but there seemed to be two peopl coming. He heard them stop Jus outside the apartment door. He la dying; you died all Bay night; and still there was dying yet to do; it was conscious insanity—any moment now his brain would burst. The telephone rang- It sounded red; orange-yellow; like the nerve- Chattering bell that rings In the subway when a train is .about to pull out. But this was something he could t^ke. It kept on ringing . . . Telephones didn't ring like that at home. They were short or long, anyway irregular. It was good thinking of home. • He thought of it deliberately now—thought of hnma with passion. listen. When he was well again, she threw him out. The telephone was ringing but he was thinking of something else now and almost didn't hear it. He.wa thinking of the plays they had sud' He saw himself sitting hi the front pew of the chancel, wearing his clean-smelling choir vestments. From across the aisle, on the woman's side, he heard his mother's voice among the others', the warm alto. He looked at her. She smiled back at him and gave him the smallest wink. The church was bathed with sun- moment and as suddenly-got up and left, how he had talked all the way uptpwn from the Village about wha a gifted actress the star was, hadn' Helen seen her in Sandalwood an Spellbound, or Mariners hadn't sh seer. Mariners, or God -They Knew What They • Wanted, lord what a artist, the greatest actress of ou time ... And then at the play, his wander ing attention, his increasing rest lessness, his feeling that he wool suffocate if he didn't get another drink at once, his suddenly havin lo get up and leave before th light the minister was ready he question. The muscles in his egs were taut, he could not release hem. He was in fear of leg cramps md he got up. Walking was what le needed. But he was too weak to stand. He made his way into the iving room and collapsed into the big chair by the window. What was he going to do about Iquor, what was he going to do now? He had to have It if never before in his life. His senses would certainly leave him if 'he did not have a drink now. Three drinks would do it — two. . Like a released spring he was suddenly up in the chair, crouched against the back, as a line of fire can across the rug. toward his feet. He stared in fright and It was gone. It was an illusion, & prank of the eye, the result of his over -strung nerves. You often saw flashes out of the corner of your eye. He glanced toward the fireplace and again the streak of fire raced out. Chapter 10 The racing fire was as if a path of gasoline had been poured on the rug and then touched with a mit • asd •• Helen leaving-to* to serve the choir. His mother rose with the other women and went to the altar rail. All the heads were bowed now except hers. She looked straight before her, her elbows on the rail, her hands clasped under her chin. She seemed lost in thought, and so was he, as he gazed at his beautiful mother, lovely with the ctear profile, the soft, pink, rose- like cheeks ... The telephone was ringing again. He had no way of knowing how long his deliberate revery had lasted. It had not been refreshing; or if it had, the ringing of the phone had wiped it all away, woke his rioting heart, his fears of what was going to happen to him now. The telephone rang on. Was there possibly one small infinitesimal sip in the bottom of the sticky bottle standing there on the table . . .? Now it came to Don suddenly that he hnd not eaten. He had eaten not a single bite of food since before Wick left—how many days ago? He was never able to eat when he was drinking; it was the last thing he ever thought of and the last thing he wanted. Was It possible to go so long without food and still be upright? He knew it was, it had happened many times. without a word, oh, she'd leave a right of course she would leave wasn't she afraid of his going ou and getting started again, didn that come before all the artists i the world.? » And even 'as his anger rose (the two of them going up the 1 dark sisle), his pity rose too, it was such a rotten shame that Helen couldn't once, just once, enjoy a play with hair. What was the foul-fiend p to now, He would not and could ot answer it. There were foot- taps in the hall, Someone rapped the apartment door. He looked wildly about him. It /as broad daylight, there was no uestion this was real. He crouch- d back and 'stared at the door- nob of the outer locked door— ixed it with his eye, in panic. The rapping came again; .to his lorror he saw „ the doorknob turn jack and forth;, and Helen's voice ailed softly; . "Don, Don. Are you n there, Don?"

Don thought bitterly of those times he had asked Helen to marry Mm, call up your father, let's call him up right now, tell him we're going to get married this weekend! He felt like a hound, then, when he saw the tears in her eyes as she smiled and shook her head. The telephone began again. It I rang as if for the, only time that morning as if this were the most important call of all. He shut his eyes and gritted his teeth. He thought of how central at home had sometimes given hiiri a ring on, Sunday afternoon and said he'd better hurry if he wanted to get Dorothy for a date. Harry Fox was .trying to .call her now and her line was busy ... Reveries of home . . - Senti- mutch. It went out. So long as he, kept his eye on it — Physically he knew he was in dangerous shape. His pounding heart seemed continually about to stop. Ifc thumped and missed. It pounded with such frantic insistence that he was unable to get in any position where he could not hear it. Then sometimes it was quiet for so long that he would sit up mental tears slid out from under his closed lids as he saw himself standing now in the new Scout uniform, his- first, with a crowd of other children on the high-school lawn.

The game was played on * rain-soaked turf, rain having fallen prior to the opening of the game and again between the halves. A year ago the Maroon and Gray of Hagerstown defeated the Campers 7-0, but Friday night the Alle- ganlans got revenge in a hard hitting game, a game In which two lines crashed against each other time and gain heavily until one or other were opened up for slashes through. Ball carriers, when tackled, were tackled hard, but it was a Some, free of unnecessary roughness Posses were attempted in large number but only a few were completed, due to the wet condition of the ground preventing runners from •jetting off early enough to be there when the ball arrived.

He looked at the Scout master and a wave of affection swept over him. What a wonderfu and good man he was ... to hav a father like that . . . His longing to be home becam despair, then desperation. He wa going nuts with sentimentality. At noon the doorbell began t ring. The sound froze him in hi arid darkness would fall. What did that not mean?'Delirium was a disease of the night; but, worse, dellirium never came while you were drinking. Only after you had stopped. He had stopped and there was no way of starting again. Unable to go out, trapped here, what would tonight be like? He recalled nothing of all the events of all the days since he had stRrted drinking, the day Wick left. Each day's dripking had wiped out the day before—and who could understand the blessing of that? The blessing and sometimes the terror because of some dreadful deed perhaps . . . Only one understood this—Helen. She knew he was not himself when drinking—not Don.
