It was just midnight when Robbie and I reached the Club and I hustled inside while he parked the car. 1 was silting on a bar stool sipping my first drink when Robbie barged through the door. As usual he missed the step down from the entrance lo the ballroom and rolled across the floor. I saw waiters and the club manager rush to his assistance, and still feelinf piquecl at him, I pretended 1'c never met the man and rcmainet on the bar stool sipping a highball. It wasn't long until a waitei tapped me as 1 danced and said a gentleman in the checkroom wouli like to speak to me. I thanked the waiter and said I'd go soon. I was still lipping my highbal when the waiter returned. H wrung his hands and seemed lik a man torn between duly and de sire to stay out of the picture. H said the gentleman was gettin pretty mad and would like to se me immediately. 1 thanked th waiter and said I'd go soon. It was a lovely waltz I was en joying when the waiter returnet this time to beg that one of u either Roger or I, go at once I the cloakroom, Roger went. He returned to report that a Rob came out of his barrel ro th* club manager had observe that the dark-blue suit was not uxedo but a double-breasted ii-slripc, and that since these ncea were strictly, he d inviled Robbie to remain oul sight in the checkroom while a aiter went lo get me. Roger s»id at since Rob wax overhCiHcd, he ought a highball was in order. e turned to the shelf where his w had been.

Roger suggested we stop at a >ar and have a quickie in nrdcr 0 compensate Rob for the lack he lad suffered at the Club, an idea Robbie readily seconded. "We'll go to Tony's," Rob said He's an old tenant of mine. He'l fix us up even if it is closing time.' "Let's match for the first round,' Roger said. Kob lost. Roger ordered a second roum and the waiter said the drink were on the house. We* tossed off that round an Roger said, "How's to take you turn, Roberts?" "My turn?" Rob exploded. "Wh 1 bought the first round." "Sure," said Roger. "And 1 pro vided the second round." "You!" Rob shouted. "Tha round was on the house on R<_ count of me. I own this dum You can thank me for that div, dend." "Hen, hen," Roger chortled i I'UF, buys brought (heir appc- liU's. "They're used lo snjno- hing tn o;il uinmt ihis lime of lij'.ht."
