Jean Roland had not cared much for the gown in the first place because it H>,TS a design for men, but very, wisely she hud worn it 'hat niRht. She knew her jury. And Jean was right. When the ballots were counted, the men had voted that Jean had modeled The "Vess of the Year. The chairman of the ball ascended to the platform to present 'he prizes: a pair of diamond e«r- -ings for the model, a miniature, ^old mannequin for the designer, le made a little speech and called 'ean to the platform, save her the "nrrings. He made a second little speech -nd called Mr Paul Panciera to •he platform, gave him the tiny mannequin. The chairman com- nlimented Mr. Panciera for his •alent in knowing the taste* of women, demonstrated so often in •he past, and for his talent in ;nowing the tastes of men, dem- instratcd so well there that eve- iing. Tim realized someone had to take 'he bows and if this were Mr. Panciera, the head of the firm, he was ttt* logical person in Tim's sb- Slill, Tim expected Mr. Panciern Jin his speech of acceptance to give (some credit to the actual designer, to refer, even indirectly, to Tim himself. But Mr. I'ancicra made no even slight reference to Tim. He praised Jean and took the rest of the glory /or himself. Indeed, to Tim's complete exasperation, Mr. Panciera was smug about the award, accepting it with an easy egotism, passing the gown oft as something he considered one of his lesser achievements. Tim watched him glibly bow himsel/ oft the platform, nonchalantly acknowledging the applause, and his exasperation grew to anger. He belonged in this evening somewhere, he told himscll. After all, he HAD designed the winning dress. The music began. Again the danceri danced, and again the whirling, ever-changing pattern of black-and-white marionettes and radiantly jeweled and gowned creatures came to life. But it was no longer fantasy for Tim. Somehow, falsehood and deceit had dispelled the celestial aura. Who was this tall, sharply-mous- lached, urbane and egotistical Mr. Panciera? Could he really be the unprepossessing, practically odious head of the Brm that Jean had led him to picture on her first visit to Cedarbrook? And why hadn't Jean telephoned or written to him about this important evening? It was his creation, she wore, wasn't it? Tim. in the balcony, got laboriously to his (cot. He was going to find the answers. • * • JIGGER, the bellboy, found Jcsn J at the bar in the lounge oft the Main Ballroom. She and Mr Panciera were being gaily toasted by a group of admirers. He waited until tbe hubbub cf the toast was over, then gave Jean the note he carried. Indifferent to the contents of the note (Jean had had many no'.es in her lite), she finished her wine before she read it. Mr. Panciera noticed the shadow of shock across her face. He took the letter from her limp fingers read it. 'No." he said in quick annoyance. "What does he mean turning up here without warning? No He can't do this. Send word you are tired and have to go home. Tell him you will call him tomorrow." Jean, still mute from shock, indicated Jigger who stood by waiting for instructions. "The gentleman is waiting?" Mr. Panciera questioned the beliboy. Jigger jerked a thumb over his shoulder. "In the lobby." Jean finally was able to speak "I'll have to go." She lowered her voice. "1 may not be able to comeback for a while. Forget about me. 1 ' Jean followed Jiggei toward the lobby while Mr. Panciera. frowning with annoyance, looked on. • • • "JYIE lobby ol the Empire was many-columned and richly shadowed, and Jean, trailing Jig- Ber, came upon Tim even before she saw him. He. from a low, deeply-cushioned chair, looked up at her tall and slender in white against the softly shadowed background, and immediately his anger left him Never had he seen her at night before and never had he seen her so lovely. She, looking down at him and discovering, instead of the helpless, pale creature of the wheel chair, a healthy, extremely handsome and well-groomed younp man, was startled.
