T STOOD on the fronl porch waY- ing goodbj to Roger, and as his jeep rounded the corner »nd dis- lappeared, I turned to go into the Ihujse. Before the door closed. I heard a car stop and saw a squat young man get out of It. He smiled at me timidly, I thought—but then I'm no judge of character. 'Chappie to my name. John 2happle. I'm here with Crisscross Engineering Company to lay out the East Air Base. My boss, Fred Banks, says he knows you. That you'have a larger house than you're using. Might rent me a room.* Realizing that here was a pleasant fellow, albeit one engaged in a sandy occupation, I felt awkward about offering him the basement, and so suggested he go down alone and look around unin- ever saw, Lumpy oeds., one bathroom for the whole houseful, even musty cellars with coal dust all over everything." I hated to pour cold water on such enthusiasm for our house, but I said, "I'm afraid you'll think 'm very seltish when 1 tell you don't want a bonanza. If I lot you have the bedroom, that's the >est 1 can do." "No, 1 don't think you're sell- sh. 1 think thai you are very icnerous lo tahe anyone in at all." He oflered me a cigaret, lit une htmsell. He smoked thoughtfully then tried again. "1 noticed you nave an extra bed stored away the corner of the basement Couldn't 1 set that up in the silting room and have a buddy down there with me? He wouldn't be any me, trouble. He's married, like and as soon as he finds hibited by any fear of hurting my feelings il he didn't like what he saw. In less time than it took me to settle down in the garden room, he was back, his eyes glowing and on his face the Birth >f a Great place, he'll send f»r hi? wife some as I'll do. He's up against it for a decent place to sleep." • • • TOPIS buddy moved in so fast 1 made me suspect Henry Snoi had been hiding all the time o the flw> r of the car. They un packed and disappeared, tn hour they returned and this tim they brought a friend with them He had. he said, all of his furni ture in storage here while he was looking for an apartment to put it in so he could send for his family, and since he had a perfectly good bed and bureau he could move in our basement and use, couldn't he please? The other fellows were willing and he swore he'd not be a bit o. trouble. If he hadn't been blond and blue-eyed, freckled and Idea. "You have a bonanza!" he nice, shiny, weII-scrubbed face pped with <-~cd hair Pat Keotinn orkcd like a beuvci csiabhshini! inniy and 11 eni'y in the si 111 n (; oom. He couldn't have displayed iorc concern for Ihc arrnnficmonl ! the furniture if he had been omg to live there himself. When he was all finished mnv- iil the bureau an inch more that 'ay. Jimmy's bed an inch more iiis way, Henry's bed over by the oor. he nad Icfl n space appiox- y seven by four (eel with bsolutcly nothing in it. lie suit) wislfully that he was the only one f the gong left outside. Pal wasn't married, he didn't have my furniture, i felt s 'e and ex- >ansive when I said, "It's loo bnd we haven 1 ! another bed. You might just 35 well room here with he boys as not." Like n Hushed covey of quniJ the three men look oil. An hour later they carried a construction cot down ihe basement stairs and set it up in the space so providentially big enough ,o receive it. "Now see hcrc, H I said emphatically, "this is absolutely ali. Don't dare bring in another one or out you'll all go!" 1 was sublimely ignorant of O.P.A. regulations. • • • a^HE boys had said they would make their beds but 1 had neglected lo stipulate in the bond who was to pick up their :lolhcs. The first time 1 lad occasion to go to the basement after they moved in, 1 found my progress mpeded by mounds of soiled 11 iris, socks, handkerchiefs, underwear, slippers, shoes, and lop- coats. The only place that was free of .ovvcls was the lowel rack. It wns Jme they nad fresh linen. 1 climbed two flights ol stairs to the men closet, loaded up wjlh sheets, pillow cases towcL c and wash informed me excitedly. **1 could set 15 cots down there and bring you 15 men before night, and they'd all be glad to pay you anything you asked. You can't imagine what we're up against It's either the hotels — no monthly rates, rrund you. but so much per night—or the darndest dumps you skinny, 1 might have refused him, but Jimmy looked so much like Bill I couldn't hold out. I dubbed them the Three Musketeers, so touching was their Ail for One, One for All devotion, but before another night feU I grew panicky for fear they'd turn out to be the Ten Little Irjuneers. Jimmy had a pa] to help him move m, not John, not Henry, out cloths 1 made up four bfds The only ditTercnce between this and Ward 8 was that I didn't also have to bathe the occupants.
