"Your father'* a judge, so you ought to be a good umpire ! —besides you're always dropping iliesl" iakelhe Copyright by Korea DeV/olf by Karen DeWolf Distributed by NEA SERVICE, INC. . XXVII 'CHEHUY got her car and drove •^ slowly home. 1 Tiiarcia was stretched out on the Ih'ing room davenport. I She said, "IK, toots. Good o£ you to come." ! Sherry said, "I'm much gladder to see you than you deserve. Did you close your deal?" "He made his mark on the dotted lmc,".Mavcia told her. "I don't know it it's business acumen or sex 4 appeal." She yawned. "How's the new story?" Sherry''said, ."Sticky. The girl told hvm~ she loved him too soon. Now I haven't anything to build to." | • She wont into the bedroom to take off. her hat. Marcia got up and followed lazily. ' : "Why not give it a twist?" she wanted to know. "End it willi her decidmg\Ehc r wouldn't have him if lie were the last riian on earth," 1 She lay down on Sherry's bed. "That expression's idiotic," Mar' cia went on. "It should be 'unless ' he were the last -man on earth. 1 Sherry said, "Thai's an idea nnd a Kalt, pet. Maybe I'll use it and '• take all- the credit." She sat down and took oil her shoes. "It's stuck to piy stocking, of course." \ Marcia ' said, "Doesn't make sense," and yawned again. i Sherry said, "My blisler." ' Marcia made an eltort to lurn her head, i **That's what comes of wearing che'ap, $12.50 shoes," she told her : Sherry said, "Sever fccn-fifly •you piker." i She eased off her stockings' and wriggled her hot toes, and sighed Then she hung liar i'oat over Ihe back of a chair ar.u lay down on the'chaise longue. I ^he said, "Scyuntecn-filly for pair of shoes and I've got a blister Everything's-lilte that, Marcia. could have bought a hunrirei things on the boulevard, but ther wasn't any 'reason lo buy them Vhb'd T wear a new dross for?" Marcia said, "Wake me up when ou're finished, baby. Your in- •ospections lull me." * * * - pHEY both lay quiet for n while and watched the dusk deepen. Sherry was thinking it would be tin not to have any principles at ,11. Just to lake what you wanted ind never think about it. She decided she would have a lozen men on the string, each for ust one thing she liked about him. At least Ihcve would be telephones •inging.and llowers coming: and you'd have lo think about how you ooked every minute. You'd wear •ed for Tom, and yellow for Dick, ind blue for Harry. And they'd latter you and fight with you and "ove you. She sighe^l and said, "Oh, why can't I really be like that?" under icr. breath. Then she thought, Well, that's a. silly question, and got up and turned on the light. Marcia said, "Nice to sec y< again. Have you got the world straightened out yet?" Slieiry said, "Go to tho devil. 1 might as well dress, might as Hn'l I?" and the telephone rang. *t was Elsie Hilary. She was, sobbing. She said, "Oh, my God, Sherry Isn't it terrible?" Sherry said, "What?" and her heart moved horridly. "Jack and Peter and Stein and the others!" Elsie sobbed. "Haven 1 ! they told you?" Sherry said, "No. Tell me," bui she knew already. Marcia was sitting up now Elsie's hysterical voice could b heard across the room. She wcp wildly as she talked. Sherry sa still and listened. Peter had been shooting a para chute jump from a plane iiHo th ocean, and he and liis assistant am Stein and Hilary were flying clos behind the jumper's ship. Anolhe camera-plane had been besid their own, and somehow the tw art crashed into each other. They had burst into llamcs in the air .d blazed the hundreds of. feet ito the ocean. * * • UIF.Y'nE searching for the bodies now," Elsie sobbed, and Jack ami I had quarreled orribly." Sherry said things somehow, ml after a while she hung up. \ Marcia was silent. Sherry dialed :ic studio. She silid, "This is Mrs. Peier Barton," very quietly. "From vhom can I get the information bout the accident?" The girl did not answer right iway. Then she said, "Just a minute, ilcase," Sherry thought she wailed a onii time. Then another &u'l spoke o her. She said, "Hello? Bfrs. Barlon? Vlr. Felt wants to speak to you." Sherry wailed again. She could icar people whispering. The girl came back. She said, "Are you at home, Mrs. Barton? Mr. Felt is coming out o see you." So it was true then. There was no doubt nbout it. .• - . Sherry said, "Please thank Mr. Pelt, but tell him not to come—I ow," aud hung up. Mnrcln said, "You'd rallicr I went, wouldn't you?" *. Sherry nodded. "Yes—please." "I'll bo home whenever you call," Marcia told her, and gol her hat; and after a while Sherry heard the hall dooi- close. She simply sat. Pctev was gone. She did not want to cry. Her stomach felt queer instead. There were long spaces of time when she did ("tot seem to think at all. Tier brain was numb and 1 she felt a little sick. She- said, "This is worse than if you were madly in love with him. Then you could sob and cry flnd feel very sorry for yourself." And then she knew that she had never forgiven him. "You've got tp," Sherry toU herself. She- folded heu hands and sat very still, and aftc,? a long wliile her bitterness was jinne.
