People on the street, puzzled at the uncertainty and awkwardness o£ his pace, turned to watch him little suspecting that they were watching a mnn who was learning to 1 walk all over again. Jean Roland and Tim had planned to he together lor lunch but Tim, beside himself with happiness nt discarding the canes, decided the good news should not wait. He would go to the shop and walk in on her. He wanted to show her how swiftly they were moving in the direction of his dreams. The shop was quiet, withou 1 customers, while' the employe: leisurely made ready for the day Tim found Miss Major in th mce. "Wonderful Ball,** he said as h nlcrcd the oflk-e. "Wonderful ivening." He was as offhand as he had 1 icon when he left her the evening jeforc. Miss Major obviously did not jelieve him. "Was Miss Roland iurprised?" she asked blandly, "Surprised and delighted. We lad supper together," "Really? 11 Her cynical disbelief vas sharp and unmistakable. "I suppose she is expecting you now." "Nope. This is another surprise. iVhere can I find her? Do you mow?" Miss Major was very bland. 'You do not know where to find her?" "We have a dale for lunch Mil—" He leaned over the desk. 'Have you ever been in love, Miss Major?" "If 1 had been," Miss Major answered coolly, "I wouldn't therefore make a fool of myself," * * • |MM laughed. "But that's just ' the point. When you're in lov* you make a fool of yourself. That's the fun of it. I just plain forgot to get Miss Roland's phone and home address. 1 ' Miss Major smiled a bland smile. "She'll be in around 11. "Holy mackerel! Thai's » hundred years from now! You cal her and tell her Tim Reese wants to see her. Will you," "You're sure she'll know th« name?" Tim was disconcerted. "Don* you know the name?" "Sorry." She shook her hea< mechanically. "Never heard of it.' Tim was more disconcerted "How long have you worked here Miss Major?" "About five months." "And you never heard of Tim Reese?" It suddenly struck him a ntertaining. "i may not b« any ;real figure in the dressmaking Dsiness, bul heck/ 1 he laughed, I figured 1 ought to be known round here at least." » • * ITISS MAJOR sal up quickly, « sharp inquisiliveness lighting the blamlness of her face. "Arc •oil a designer, Mr. Reese?" 'After a fashion. I designed hat gown (hat worTthe award last hl, although you'd never know t to read the papers this morn- ng." "Oh!" Miss Major stood wp abruptly, her blandness gone. You're YOU!~ "Yup. I'm me. M Tim was amused./ "I'm terribly sorry, Mr. Reese." She was humbly apologetic. "1 lad no way of knowing who you were. Your name is never used 'icre to my knowledge. Mr. Paul Panciera lakes credit tor ill the designs." A small vnile of satisfaction came over her face. "In the trade, we've always known Mr. Panciera could not be the designer of.those creations that have made this house so successful, hut we could never find out who the designer was. You were kepi a great secret, Mr. Reese." "Well, the secret is out." Tim chuckled. "And maybe Mr. Panciera to loo." Miss Major moved quickly back behind the desk, got wit a pen and paper. "Your name is Tim Reese." She wrote it down carefully. "And yoirr address, Mr. Reese—?" "Miss Roland can always give yoti that." "I know, but I have, if you don't mind, Mr. Reese, a very special reason of my own /or asking for k now." (To n« Continued) HOW MUCH IS IT WORTH TO GET RID OF WORRY!
