Robbie's car was parked next to mine. "You know." opined Roger, "a secian is elegant, but a roadster is swank. Yes, sir. I ticularly a convertible." 1 dashed Roger's hopes, and climbed into the sedan. t.ntcr that daj the canteen called to tell me that an unusuall} large crowd had depleted supplies Though wholesalers would sol butter and cream and bread on Sunday, they were unable to de liver it, which meant that I had lo iiick up the items. Scarcely had hung up the receiver from givin the order lo the bakery and cream cry when Roger came up the stair on the run, zippering his jackel a he took the steps two at a time. He held out his hand for the ca ;;eys. To my questioning look, h replied thai the snow was thaw ing. he wouldn't (eel comlortab naving me out on the slippery :lrc«t alone. I was beginning to •atch on that I was a frail little .ow&r, no longer equal to breasl- -n^ T unaided, the hazards of a .^dlana winler. Or that whal 1 .houghl was a lodger had turned out to be a chauffeur. I mulled over pleasantly the possibility of being able to make heeded remarks re speed, parking spaces— even of the loaf of bread I'd lor- gotten. After we delivered the groceries to the canleen, Roger asked whether I wouldn't be interested LODGER OmiGHT 4Y GHftNtCK: NJILISHil (NsiuiuTED IY wu yavict, H^C n driving to Ihe tlnse ;uid seeing ow iis development was nro- rcssing. We drove to the Base. a similar bridge nl the opposite end of Ihc piu'king space. II was a Ihin crusl of .slush and u-c through which the ear promptly sank, lie il said lo Roger's credit, he was not flustered. If anything, he was even more pleased than before. HP now had a two-alarm fire lo his credit.

Army roads were built high with eep drainage ditches on each side, ncl when snow covered the round, black flags placed on ithcr side of the road at frequent ntei'vals marked its course. We irove fro tit and center between he black flag markers down the \rniy road until we en me to a rge parking Lot near Headquar- crs Company. Here Roger nego- iated the narrow earthwork which nidged the ditch and joined the )arking lot In the road, lie sprang out of the car, not before he had given the horn a lap that brought :icEtds to every window- Roger ran into his office; slaved Init a few seconds. When he came out again, heads were still at all Ihc windows. He regarded the big sedan from every angle with proprietary inleresl, then, satisfied that all was well, he slid into place behind the wheel. He stepped on the starter, threw the cnr into reverse, and promptly backed into the ditch. A loud gufluw went up from the audience. "It's all right," Roger assured me. "The motor pool will have us out in no lime." Forthwith he again sprang from the nnr. swinging his arm? importantly. He strode into the budding to call the motor pool. In a very few minutes a low- car with a hoist appeared. As it hooked on to the frunl end oE the car. Roger watched with as much pride as any small boy could possibly exhibit at scting (he firo engine he had summoned put out a blaze. With the car once again balanced squarely on its own lour wheels, Roger stepped on the starter, threw the car into low, and headed for what he presumed was A operation this month related to the supply by India, of 5,000 tons of raw ulo, 5,000 tons of tea ant! 1,000 ;oii5 ol castor oil in exchange /or 81,000 tons of Russian wheat.

He would now talie me tin n personally escorted tour of the 13use. He backed slowly for a tew feel, made a half turn forward, got squared away lo the little bridge, and, encouraged by the loudly cheering hoi pollof, drove successfully to the run road. While we were in the Post Kx- chnnge, Roger asked what lilt things he cuvild picked up toward our dinner. "Oil, we rtnn't have dinner on Sunday," 1 replied. "We just have a pot-luck supper," "EnUr.cly civilized," he agreed. "Bui gelling back lo my question: what is there you would like Hint I might be able to contribute?" Ignoring rny look, lie wenl on, "You must let me gel the supper. Sunday should be your day off. And you'd be surprised at how handy I am." He wasn't handy rn the kitchen only; he was handy in the bar, which he pre-empted while I was hanging up my hat nnd coal. "Sub," he said to "lob, "what can I make for you?" Noting that I had entered the room, he added gni- ciously, "And for you, fair lady?" He made three highballs and he kept on making highballs until the balance of our quota of rationed whisky for that week was gone. Then he lent me a hunn" in the kitchen f and he later helped with the dishes.
