We put the Drummonds on their bua, which, of course, left a few minutes before the next scheduled geyser eruption; H was over by the time we returned to the hotel. For all their Interest, man and boy, ID Yellowstone, Major Drummonc and Roger didn't once clap an eye on Old Faithful T think Drummond hates me, 1 Roger said anxiously. "He's u apt to queer my O.C.S. appointment And to think I brought him along to cinch it." We were at the garage having the car serviced and waiting to take a lesson from young Jimmy Valentine on how to work the gadget he'd concocted With utter frankness be went on to tell me about Mary. Mary wa: a little older than Roger; she wa, a Vassar graduate, he said, with a wonderful Job teaching in the English department of a girls school when h« married her. K hadnt occurred to him she'd eve give it up. But the Brat year of heir marriage she presented nlm ilh twins There went any hone it buying an automobile.

[N order to free his foot he had to kick and knock the bucket on he cement floor Two stout kicks nd the bottom came loose along with Roger's foot 'What's the big Weal" the out- led attendant shouted. "Buckets, is hard to get." He looked rue- 'ully at the open seam. "Here. Buddy," Roger said patronizingly, reaching Into his pockel T or a coin, "get yourself a new »e," "Where at?" demanded the man. "There ain't any. By righu I oughts make you get this'n welded ''or me." A few seconds of optical censure and the man accepted the money Roger offered. Out at the side of my eye t looked at Roger's troubled face, sell-conscious under criticism. He was pompous and a chiseler. but childlike. One minute his arrogance chilled all my interest In him: the next bis candid admission of failures and frustrations set up a store of sympathetic understanding. At the moment, he was » child who had broken his little red wagon. Having banked a tittle sympathy, he began checking on it almost immediately. We reache< Gardiner in time {or lunch anc Roger turned off the wooden key which was merely a piece of woot hitched to the ignition wires. "Howll you gel started againT' I asked. "Turn it on," Roger replied. The motor coughed and started. Roge turned Jt oR.

"Don't tell Robbie,' Koi;cr pleaded after extinguishing the I'll have the motor pool send a repair man down In Ihe morning. He'll fix everything—except the tires. That wasn't my fault, was it?" Whatever veto Major Drummond may have had in mind to invoke concerning Roger's appointment to O.C.S., Colonel Morris had worked faster: a notice to report immediately for orders to proceed to school was waiting for Roger. "Don't worry. Colonel Morris has put in a request for me. Three monlhs'll pass quickly. Before you know it, I'll be right here again. And commissioned!" He had so completely possessed us during the months he was in residence that 1 found myself wondering how it would seem for Rob and me to live alone once more. I needn't have wondered. . • .
