"I'll stay out of her way," .uptly;-- '" she said, "if she stays out of mine. "I'm Toby Ryan," Toby told i u she doesn't, she'd better watch out! v sat Toby wouldn't have echoed Harriet's statement that there was "nothing to" modeling in a fashion show.' She thought there was a good deal to it. But working in the studios had accustomed her to being stared at, and she had learned to forget herself and think of the costume she was displaying- She had some lovely things to wear bright colored sport things, mostly, because she was samll, and an evening dress that was a dream crisp, boulfant net shading from deep rose at' the hem to- misty pink over the shoulders- The charity fashion show was being held in the hotel ballroom. Small tables had been set up for tea and the models were to parade slowly ' among the tables, pausing when anyone showed interest to tell the name of the designer of the costume and the price. Toby had expected to be frightened when she first enlc-ied the room. She found she va:.n't. Carefully she watched the girl ahead of her. When the other girl was half way acreoss the room, Toby followed. The orchestra was playing a popular tune and she matched her step to the music. She was wearing a black taffeta suit with a sljort jacket, supposed to be the sub-deb's Eastc-r costume. There was a huge black and green checked bow under Toby's her. "1 m going to model in the i iiiow mis aiternoon." "Oh, are -youV" it was a question,' yet the tone implied no interest at all in an answer.' The dark-haired girl continued to stare at Toby a moment longer. Then she said, in a drawling voice, "Sems to me I've seen you somewhere.".' " - " ""1 I don't think it's very likely." 11 "No?" Again the studied scrutiny. Toby lelt her cheeks flushing" uncomfortably. : She ' would have moved away, but the other girl's voice went on. "Could it have been in Miami? Were you there in February?" ' '! "No," Toby sajd. "I wasn't in Miami." 1 '.' - "Then, perhaps, it was last fall at Aiken, Or op the boat crossing from Cherbourg?" ' ' - I ' :;. Toby shook her head- "I haven't been in any of those places." "Really? How quaint!" Suddenly the girl laughed.' "I have' it!" she said. "You look exactly like a maid 1 used to have. She wasn't a very good maid; I had to discharge her.' Something about stealing Some spoons " There was no opportunity for a reply; With a' shrug of her shoulders, the dark-haired ' girl was gone.- '."' 1 " Toby stood motionless, held by the stinging words. The gill had been deliberately insulting. It was in her manner and tone as well as In the words themselves. And there wasn't any excuse for it Harriet came up beside Toby. She said something, but the other did not seem to hear. Harriet repeated, "Come on, Toby. Miss Landers is ready for us." - She put a hand on the other girl's arm. Toby nodded, but instead of answering she asked, "Harriet, who is that girl over by the windows?" Harriet looked across the room. "You mean the one in the black and white dress?" she asked- Toby said "Yes." It was the girl she had been talking to. Harriet ' lowered her voice. That," she said, "is about as nice a dish of poison as you'd be able to find in a day s search. Carol Marsh is her name. One of the Park avenue darlings who think it's too, too thrilling to have a ca-reeah, my deah! So they use the family (Dull and' get jobs that other girls really need.

"I knew you'd say that. That's why I called. But this kind of modeling is lots easier than standing before a camera , There's nothing to it and if there is anything that bothers you, you can ask me- 1 thought it would be fun working together." "It would be! And it's awfully nice of you to offer to help me, Harriet, but still I don't know-1" "Listen, don't you suppose all the other girls were beginners once? 1 want you to call the office first thing in the morning and see that Sally's got you on the list. There'll be about eight other models. I suppose. There usually are that many." ' "Well, if you're sure I can do it" "I wouldn't have said a thing about it if 1 wasn't sure. Of course you can. Listen,' why don't you stop here for me? It won't be out of your way and we can go on together. I'll tell you exactly What you're supposed to do " At 1 o'clock the next afternoon the two girls were walking down buzz of feminine voices, high- pitched and all, apparently, talking at the same time. Harriet nodded. "This's the place till right.

"I suppose I'd better call right away" She went to the telephone and aled a number, aware that though the rooming house keeper had stepped out of sight, the door of her room remained open. Mrs. Moeller, ever curious about tele phone Calls,: was showing increas ing interest in Toby's. Privately. Mrs. Mueller admitted that a job like Toby's "posing to' have her picture tools" might be all l ight, usl the same I It was Harriet Holm's voice thai! chin and she wore a green hat, slanting provocatively over one eye.

"This is an original Claudette model " "Woman glanced up from their tea and eyed the taffeta suit Critically- And some asked about sizes and it the suit could be had In different colors. Slowly Toby circled the room. Her own amazement at suits that sold for $185 "arid' the women who bought them had ended long ago. She reached the final' table, paused ' to' repeat the" 'familiar words and turned toward the door. A sound behind halted her. It must Have been' a sixth sense that warned her, for, even before she turned, Toby was sure whom she was to face. She loked up into Tim Jamieson's eyes. "Hello," he said, smiling.

' Ever since then Manville has been trying to get her out of his house. Policemen have been called to the scene. Crockery has been thrown, names have been called, and a meaningless domestic row has gone 'on and on until it Is impossible to read about it without feeling slightly seasick. Now the point of it all is that Ihis playboy' type of man the completely irresponsible spender with a huge fortune which he isn't fit to possess is the most disturbing kind of public nuisance America harbors today. Not only does this kind of perron give decent citizens a pain in the neck; he provides ammunition for every agitator in the land.

Furniture had been pushed out of the way. Racks from which bright-colored costumes hung, obscured one wall- On large table in the center of the room hats, gloves, furs, shoes and handbags lay in confusion. Tissue paper wrappings and cardboard boxes had fallen to the floor. Half a dozen girls all young, slender, attractive were grouped about the table or before the racks dresses.

"She's the stylist who's running the show." Miss Landers turned and took in two in the doorway. "Are you girls models?" she asked. "Yes," Harriet said, coming forward.
