As usual. 1 was getting dinner when the phone ran^ and a blillie voice said. "How's conditions?" Like an Oriental, 1 deprecated our humble abode, our humble service, our humble fare. I said the house was full of people, four in the basement, two in the guesi room. "Bill home?" he ashed, "No. nol yet. But we're expecting him." Roger drew BIT easy breath. "Thai's perfcLl. Be right clown," I appealed to Hob. "Don't worry Toots," he reassured me "We got an exclusive listing in the oflice today on a furnished house, I'l cinch U for Roger." I made ROD phone the owner right away to tel her it was rented. 1 [ell saved When Roger drove up in a staf car, chaufleured by a Wac, I wa almost cordial, "It's good to be home." he boomed, with an admiring ey* on iiis officer's cap. Lie hung it witl his coal in the vestibule closet earned his bags up to Bill's room and spent a minute chatting witl Sonny and Sally who had com' out in the halt to see what alJ th racket was about. He told then how pleasant il was to have ther aboard. He called on the boys ii the basement, welcoming them t his old quarters, and invited them to join us upstairs after dinner. Robbie went over to the pian to play, but before be struck ole, he remembered about the ousc. "Oh, Roiicr. I've got good e\v& for you. A vsry cotnfoilnblc mushed house was listed with s today." NSTEAD of Icupinjj into Uic air and Celling "Whoopee!" ns we xpected—houses of any kind, specially furnished, were piacti- ally non-existcn(—Hoycr leaned orwaid, gazed t.houghUully mio 'ie tire, look plenty of time lo r eigh the matter, then uskod unrdotlly where the house was lo~ ated. Robbie gave Ihe address, toger sank back in his chair and milcd loleranlly. "Wrong side of own." "\Viuii" side of town, my foot!" lob barked; "There's no such hiug now a$ a wrojig side ol o\vu. A house IF a house And you're lucky il the rool doesn't, eak." "I'll take it," John s.iid. with .he eagerness we had hoped (or 'rom Roger. "You forgot," Roger said pa- UenUy lo Rob, ignoring the others '1 have iwo young ejhildren. 1 * "Babies!" Rob roared. "Wha difference does it make where they live?" 'Th ese a re f ormali ve yea rs,' Rogei reminded him. "II make: a very gieal deal of diflerence, "U doesn't to me." John said I'll rent n stghl unseen." "'You'll be sor-r-r-ry." Sally sail lo Roger. "That's an explode 1 ! fallacy thai environment is im portant. Never forget, you but tered your bread. Now you'll hav lo lie in il." John got the bouse, and we stil got Roger. Our M.C., aware no doubt of th slump in Rogt-'r-Iioberis solidarity Jooked out of the window and re marked that il had stopped snow ing and that he- proposed all th men go out and clear the walki. A LL the men worked excepl Rol Aiways allergic to work, h nursed his grouch by Ihe bre whi ally nnd I busied ourselvcF In ie kilrhcn. I sliced tiormiidit nions thin and put thorn lo soak i Kront-li dressing. Later, Sonny, king a bile ot n snndwirli. pr What hove you (((trie lo these nions?" "Marinated them.* "You know, iSunny, whnt people o on Sunday lo clothes thn( ore be w»5hcd iw Monthly," SalJy xphiinctt. The men didn't return (iom hoveling and Sally filially foutul in the alloy. Roger wouldn't ct them quit until they hnd leared behind Lhe H'irafic so the ars could be backed out. "To- noi row'll be Sunday/ 1 he cx- ilained archly. "So what," the vanquished Rob napped, "Be-kind-to-Lee-day. I'm invil- g you lo the Club lo dinner. Should lend variety to your lives." t did. "Better let me drive," Koflcr •uggestcd as we climbed into the 'cctan the next day. "It'll be easier getting past the sentry." We wound up the highway to ore Field and made the riyht- •\nftle turn otito the army rond. A ptow had cleared a lane, piling Lhe snow high up on either side. Roger Insisted upon letting us out at the Club driveway entrance. Lt was his first appearance at the Club and our first KB his guests, and we wailed for him lo make tiis grand entrance. He described a wide arc as he swung the car out onto Uie main road. One minute we saw the car. The next we didn't ft wasr't nn entrance he made; it WAB a fadeout, Roger, on hands and kneea like an Eskimo coming out of his tgloo, burrowed through the snowdrift and up onto the road. "Bad spot, that," he said amiably, indicating the place in whirh the car reclined on i!s side a Hi wart the ditch and hidden by the snowbank. "I'll have to call il to the Engineer's attention in the morning.** "Oh, yeah," Rob stormed. "And what about the car tonight?" "Oh, that! I'll enU ih* motor pool to pull it out," "And how well they'B how," I muttered.
