Out jumped Roger and, like a fool- man for a prince, he held the door open, A general in the United Stales Army stepped out of the car, followed by his aide. Time for debate was over. I whipped off my apron, ran frenzied hands through my hair.

As my eyebrows went up, he reminded me "pnlly that he couldn't allow the misadventure of the day before to So unerased. A wash job was in order. "I'm afraid I must insist dear lady. The fault is mine. The restitution is also mine." I told Roger 111 at in Montana we were used to dirty cars, that almost no one bothered to keep a car shinec up. He lisleticd patiently, with his hand outstretched, and his only comment was to wiggle his fingers in a come-on motion. I gave him the keys. About 5 o'clock that afternoon he telephoned from a downtown cocktail lounge to inquire what we were having for dinner, i was cooking a roast of beef, a lovely thing for which I had given all our hard-saved points. We'd got past buying meat with a thought for size or price; it wns the number of points required that determined whether we bought or not. "But good!" Roger exclaimed, "I've run into a couple o£ friends and we'll be right along." T heard the phone on his end click. As fast as one myopic eye and one farsighted eye could do it, I looked up the number of the cocktail lounge from which he said 'he was calling, and rang the phone there. I asked to have Roger paged. In a few minutes word came back that he did not answer. Long before I had got over wringing my hands and arguing with myself over whether I should simply lock all the doors, turn off r PHE front door opened and Roger boomed, "Lee 1 . 1 want you lo meet General Brown and Major Smith. They flew in this noon and are leaving in the morning, I couldn't have them pass through ami not be exposed to Western hospitality." General Brown and Major Smith both looked as surprised as I did. Roger hung up their caps and coats in the vestibule closet, herded them through the living room, tossing a lighted match into the nc-wly laid wood in the grate as he passed the fireplace, and on into the giir- dcn room. Setting them comfortably, be opened the panel to the bar and said, "Gentlemen, what'll it be?" I was curious myself as to what it would be, since Last week's bottle had been emptied Sunday and Robbie was not yet home. But Lady Luck was riding high on Roger's shoulder. No sooner had he asked the question and received the reply, "Whisky and soda." than the horn of the hunter was heard on the hill. Rnb slammed Ihe garage door and came in with a quart Roger took charge of the bottle and turned to the bar. Over our coffee and cigarels nnd benedictine, General Brown said, "I shall never forget this town. It will always stand out in my memory as a unique city.
