Why should he write or call when he was only to be gone a lew days He hadn't ' been detinite about it. She didn't Know a "a lew days" meant two No, you're not going to get stung if you read this. At least that is not our intention. The following is merely the best explanation we can find as to why you are afraid you are going to feel foolish before you finish. In the first place, no one seems to know just how April Fool or All Fools' Day started. Generally it is believed that the event had its origin in the festivals attending the beginning of the new year, which on ancient calendars started on April 1. This is not specific, however, and is only a guess. It is known that the inhabitants of India have for many centuries been accustomed to playing pranks on each other during the feast of Huli, which takes place during the last week in March and ends March 31. It is also known that April 1 has been anciently observed in Great Britain as an occasion for festivity, but the fooling feature did not or three or even lour. Surely it couldn't be more tnan that! The first day dragged to a close and the second went even more slowly. Harriet, coming in late in I V . - ( j A V . ' ( ' " -5j-fc. AMD AFTER J J 1 V " ff3 W6C6TTHE f ;' a ' ? POLITICAL .

Harriet knew that Tim was away, though Toby hadn't told her wheie he'd gone. She thought Har said it as much to convince herself as Tim. How long will you be gone?" "Oh, just a few days." He looked down at her, smiling. "Think you will miss me?" "I might." "So Unit's all you've got to say, is it? You might! That's how 1 stand with you " She loved having him rail at her like this. She said, 'Well, I expect it will be sort of lonely." "That's belter! Though I doubt if you mean it. You'll be stepping out with some olher fellow !" "Tim, you know I won't!" "Listen, don't think you can fool me. 1 know yo .r tricks, young woman. You're i.jt putting a thing over on me" It ended with Both of them treating it as a jjkc, which made it easier for Toby It was so much better not to bt serious, not to show how she rtally felt. At the entrance of the apartment she asked, "When did you say you were leaving, Tim?" He hadn't said, but now he told her, "Early in the morning . 1 won't call you because you'll be asleep." Then I won't see you again?" "Not for a few days. I'll give you a ring as soon as I get back." She put a hand on his arm. "Oh, Tim, 1 will miss you!" "And I'll miss you, Gorgeous. But it's only a lew days. Now I'd better be getting along. Got to get up early, you know " "Tim, take care of yourself." He laughed. "Of course I will." "But something might happen." Her face was serious. "You'll be driving and sometimes there are accidents. Terrible things happen. Oh, you must be careful!" Listen, Gorgeous, I'm going to be all right! Now you run along and get your beauty sleep and stop worrying about me. Will you do that" "Yes, if you'll promise ' "All right. I'll promise you I won't be in any accidents. Does that satisfy you" He took her in his arms then and kissed her, and for a moment she clung to him. Toby said, "Oh, Tim " and then smiled brightly, determinedly. "It's all right. 1 know nothing's going to happen. I know you'll come back soon." "That's the girl. Good night, Gorgeous." "Good night, Tim."" After all, it was only for a few be able to look at her himself, doesn't he? He doesn't want every other fellow within a mile looking at her as though he couldn't take his eyes away. I thought I'd better get out of there before I got into u row " The idea of Tim being drawn inlo a tight because of her was horrifying to Toby, but with it came a surge of relief. H hadn't been because of Carol Marsh that Tim had wanted to leave the Seville Club! Caio hadn't had a tiling to do with it. It was because ot Toby liersell because Tim was so devoted to her, "wanted her to himself," he said. She raised shining eyes. "I didn't know anyone was staring at me," she said, "but, oh, Tim, I'm iilad we came away." "So'm I. Now, how about Alfredo's?" "'s go there. I'd rather go theie than any place I know." So they went to Alfredo's, and, sitting at one of tho softly lighted ables, dancing to the same music they had danced to before, .Toby telt again the magic ol that earlier evening. She forgot about Carol Marsh; forgot that, even for a moment, she had known the sharp pains of doubt. Toby said little. It was enough to Iook up and see Tim beside her, to catch his smile and smile back at him. She thought he looked especially handsome tonight t'hougn, of course, Tim was always handsome. She listened to everything he said und made suitable answers, but when he was not speaking she scmcd to be in a world apart a world of happiness and beauty and music that went on and on without ending. Alfredo paused at their table ana Tim assured him that everything was as it should be. Toby's neait ecnoed the words. Oh, yes, indeed. Everything was as it should be. Every thing in the whole world! It was not until they were on their way home that anything happened to change her mood. 1'hen it came very suddenly. Tim said, "By the way, I won't be seeing you for a day or so. Friend of mine has asked me to drive down to Maryland with him. He's got a place there he's been wanting me to see " "Oh!" It was a foolish little exclamation. Toby went on quickly, hoping Tim had not noticed it. "Vou'ie going?" "Well, i can't very well get out of it. You see, he's asked me a riet might be inclined to criticize it she Knew. Harriet semed to think Tim should have a job. "Hello, ' Harriet said, taking off her hat and tossing it on a cnair. come into vogue In England until the last century. The Scotch have . With 400,000 persons thrown out of "employment by the eastern Hoods, the federal relief problem is aggravated and its needs augmented at the very time when it was hoped that the relief load might shrink. , ' Perhaps this additional unemployment will be but temporary, but for the time being it is acute and demands relief action. While the flood-caused unemployment is apart from that born of the depression, the two types are similar in this respect both a cute way of making fools out of people on April 1 by sending them out to hunt "gowks" or cuckoos. which explains the now common association of the word "cuckoo" with foolishness. This is all quite vague and not "Whats new.'" "Nothing." "Anyone call me while I was away?" "ro." "Well," said Harriet, "I've got. news lor you. I stopped in at the League on Ice to get that check -they've been holding for me." Toby wasnt much interested, but she waited tor Harriet to go on. "Well?" "Well, I thought you might like to know that you won't have to worry about your friend, Carol Marsh, lor a while. Betty Turn-bull was there, talking to Sally and I heard her say .mot Carol's out of town. She's gone to a house-party in Maryland." ; (To Be Continued) deeply informative, but it is suffi cient to say that, we have April Fools' day for the purpose of having fun as long as the other guy is the one who gets fooled. This is fun at any time, but April 1 furnishes a conscience-salving excuse. So you have been fooled only if you expected to find out exactly what it is all about.
