MSCMCN SWTWn Ted Thatcher had come to the Fergunson's. Doris and Joey were wary at first; then they had accepted him. Fanny had given him some chores around the house. Joe brought news regularly from the office, and bad gone with Ted to his dad's funeral. Fanny was teaching him at home (she had been a- school teacher) and thought he could start school with kids his own age the next fall. One night, three weeks after he had come, Ted lay awake, thinking over his situation. He thought of the contrast between his old home and his present one, between Joe and his dad, Fanny and his mother, his work at the office and boning over school subjects Fanny pushed him to daily; he thought of the party Fanny and Doris and Joey had given for him; of last night, when Fanny had come and kissed htm sort of quick-like and hurried out, not saying anything. He thought of the kids in the neighborhood, and of how they were not so much fun, maybe, as his old gang, but of how they didn't get him into trouble. He thought of the night Joe had told off Mrs. James, when she protested he was teaching Rudy to swear, and of how Joe had said, "After all, you can't unlearn a whole life's experience in two weeks—I wish you'd try to give the kid a break—persecution's no way- to do it." Fanny had trusted him with money to pay some bills, and he'd resisted the impulse to go back down to Hoolan street and treat the gang to pool; and she had smiled proudly at him when he got back from that errand, just like she had been able to read his mind all the time he had the money. He wished, happy though he wa- beginning to be, that his mon. could still be here. He still missed her—pretty badly. V.R > Generally, the fuller a man gets the emptier his conservation becomes.
