My hackles rise all right, but all they do is to turn my neck red been use I can't say no. I can cat- step all around an issue, hint like crazy, and end up leaving the final decision to my opponent. As we washed the dishes, Roger said, "You know, Lee, you mustn't lean on me too confidently. There's no certainty of my being stationed here "forever." "No?" I said hopefully* "No," Roger echoed gravely. "I've been thinking you should meet some of the men I think you'd find congenial. Our colonel, for instance.* It startled me that the paucity of our friendships was so apparent. Rob would have been born in Montana except that his mother elected to spend that winter in Florida, He'd grown up with the native sons, however. During the 15 years I'd lived in our town, somehow I'd been invited to join he top-flight sewing circle, danc- ng club, literary club, music club, travel club, contract bridge club. .he Junior League, and several other organizations. But Roger plugged on, "Colonel Morris is free omorrow ntght. I suggested he hold the evening until he heard from me." In spite of Roger's starved childhood, in spite of his uniform and potential as a hero, I was about to address him with some well- chosen words—when Rob came into the kitchen to hear what »\l the conversation was about. Roger told him. I tried to fix Hob with _ fish eye, but he ignored m«. "Give him his party," he said. • "Not so (asL We haven't any red points," 1 gloated. "What about chicken?" Roger asked. "Robbie hates chicken. Got too mncli of it in Fiance." "That's all right," said the man who'd sworn to protect me, "chickcn'll have to do if it's all you can get." • • • X>On, I was learning, though he rmd been opposed to taking in a roomer, was pathetically glad to have a boy around the house again. It seemed to nU some of the hollow left by Bill's absence. Though Roger oftjn tried us to the limit, he managed not to try us both at the same time: what drove me to distraction, Robbie waved aside as unimportant; when Robbie was burned up, 1 fell reasonable. We could have liquidated Roger in a hurry if we'd ever thrown in together, but we didn't. We had Colonel Morris to dinner, also his secretary; without her, it seemed, he could not ent. The urgency of including Miss Me* Gillicudy was so impressed upon me that I haU expected her to arrive carrying a typewriter for fear Colonel Morris should suddenly be taken with a letter. Also we had Colonel Morris 1 adjutant and his girl, and her sister. We never again heard from Colonel Morris, or from his secretary, or from the adjutant and his girl, or from her sister, but three weeks later Roger was recommended for Oflicer Candidate School. Roger was perpetually alerted lo opportunity, whether (or personal pleasure or personal advancement. We didn't fully recognize this quality until he had exercised it a good many times at our expense. Hence, when he bore down on HE with the news that the National Parks were closing at the end of the current season to remain closed for the duration and that he'd heard of Old Faithful all his life and thai. Major Drurnmond— "A1AJOR DRUMMONDP Rob echoed. "How'd he got in the picture?" "Hea'dqunrtcrs Company." Rti^er acknowledged the inU'n u pi ion. "He's going lo help me Rot Ihe appointment lo O. C. S." lie went on lo It'll us that ever since Major Di'ummond had been a kid in school nnd bud seen a picture of Old Faithful in his geography, he'd wanted to sec the geysor, and her* they bolh were within 300 mile.i of it and unless they went immediately, they'd miss it altogether. Pulling aside base suspicions of Caesar and ambition, I thought lhat il would be nice if he could arrange lo go lo Yellowstone Park since he was so eager. ''No trouble about thai. I have a three-day pass. 1 was thinking lhat it would be a good Idee for all of us to go." "Who's 'all'?" Rob a.tked in a flat Voirc. "Major Dmmmond and his wife and you and Lee and me." "How?" This was one of. those days when 1 was reasonable and Rob was difficult "In your car, of course," Roger said brightly, as though he were arranging something for our bcnc- IH. "Drummonds haven't one." "Not mcl" Rob objected. "I've seen Yellowstone/' "You don't want a book-—you've got a book." Roger quipped. "I thought Yellowstone National Pork was wonderful enough to see many times." 41 It is, M I entered the argument. "I'd like to RO." I thought what o relief it would be to cut the ropes of Red Cross and home duties for a few days. II boiled down lo Rob deciding lo stay home while 1 went with the DruniMinmts and Roger. As we were ready lo leave, Rob gjive his sel of keys lo the sedan lo Roger. "Too much jinglc-}iiriglc," Roger said, removing Ihe key. "Aren'l you afraid you'll lose il?" 1 asked. "Not me," quoth Roger, lapping his walch pocket. "Tins litllc nest is the safest place in Ihe world for small objects." <To Rr. Continued} day of April, 1949. HARVEY MORRIS. Clerk By Betty Ball, D.C.
