MMd alker XVI11 I RETURNED home one late afternoon to find an eager, husky young Air Transport Command pilol waiting to see me. He was just back in this country from flying Lend-Lease over the Hump and he hod been advised at the Field that Sonny wiis lo be transferred. (It often happened that new applicants for our rooms would corne to see us before Die present incumbents had heard they were lo be moved.) lie wanted the Vickerys' room for the bride he was about to marry. Jean h;id wanted lo get married before Hollo went overseas, bul her parents insisted upon their waiting until she was 21. She had (hat birthday the same day he flew his 45th mission — his age plus hers. "Gel it?" he said. It seemed to him like an omen o( good luck, and now as soon as he cleared at the Field, he'd get leave .and they'd be .married. I looked at his war-weary uniform. wings over the pocket, two rows of campaign ribbons heavily dotted with stars and oak leaf clusters, the brilliant red, white, and blue shield on his sleeve; at his thatch of blond hair, the premature lines around his eyes; the lense, nervous way he used his lips; and I thought -there wasn't much sacrifice a civilian could 'make that such a boy hadn't earned and didn't deserve. 1 briefed him on what I should expect of him and his wife. (V.liy 1 wasted breath on such futility 1 don't know for I never anticipated what a' new guest would do and what did happen was never in the pattern of what had happened.) LODGER COmiGHT IT GtKHtlftC: PUK.IfHU MiTIIIUTEB IY NEA U1VKI. MC Roger came home as Rollo and were finishing out arrangements, le hung around until "the Little Birdtnun," as he referred to Rollo, ell; and then he advised me 1 vas making a great mistake, thai he fellow wasn't of "our class." I didn't lei! itoger lhal Hollo -,vas about to be married and would nol undermine him and his hold on us; I listened inslead to (he click of his nose as it went out of oint, and walched the brown of lis eyes Lurn to green. "One thing 1 hope for your sake." ."ie concluded, "is lhal you'll keep him in his place. After all, he's only a roomer. A fellow wilh his check would lie the first one lo take advantage of your hospitality." He couldn't he the first one, bul I lei lhal pass. Instead. I sel the l.nhle for three and hoped one pound of hamburger would do: rUiijer was exceedingly fond of Swedish meat balls. • • • J^OGEH'S prediction was righl, hut for tlie wrong reasons. Cheek and class had nothing to do with it; it was an airmail special delivery letter that stirred Hollo's life with a spoon and ours with it. Rollo had watched for lhat letter for a week and when il arrived, he wished he'd never seen it. lie brought the letter to Ihe kitchen to read. Rollo began hy giving of! half- finished excerpls as his eyes raced hungrily over the pages looking for Ihe date he wanted to lell nie. As what Jean had really written bore in on his consciousness, his voice faltered. Quickly he turned the pages looking for what was not there. Jean wrote that il was all a mistake and how lucky they were lo have found it oul before it w.n loo lale. Theirs was a boy-and- girl affair—puppy love, she called it. She'd met the most wonderful man, a colonel in Ihe Marines, and it wns a case of love al first sight This was a mature passion (Hit colonel's fine Italian hand—he was 42—showed rletii'ly nil Ihe way '•rouRli Ihe leller). "Now do he a good buy, dear," "lie wrutc, "and foriiivc me. It's Koint! lo seem awfully strange Keeping wilh anolhur nmn ind using all of Ihe Ihinijs we collecled fur our hoiiie, bul 1 know you'd tt-anl mo lo be sensible nml lol throw tlicm away jnsl because of a lillle change in plans. I'll al- vays love you. dear," she wrote. 'U isn'l lhal 1 lo\-c you; only lial I love Herbert more." Slic ended wilh: "How torlurmlc we ire lo have fouud out before il was loo late." DOI.LO read Ihe Icllor llirec limes before he crushed it in lis trembling hands. He walked >:iok and forlh across Ihe kikhcn loor a few linns. Then he dropped imiily onto n chair. "I think it wouldn't hurl so much," he sniri, rubbing his throat, "it 1 could cry." Roger stuck his head in Ihe door .0 ask if he could—no, lo lell me ie would—slay home for dinner. Since tie had been commissioned, ie ate a good many meals al Ihe Officers' Club. "Nol tonight, Roger," I said. 'Hollo's in trouble. 1 want him lo stay." "What's up?" "His girl is marrying someone else." "She loves me," Rollo said. hanRing onto thai comfort. "Yeah, 1 know." Itojicr laughed. "Like a sister." Hollo looked as though he'd had his face slapped. He boiled upstairs lo his room and 1 ran after him. "Rollo! Hollo!" I called. "Rollo, don't aive up yel. Maybe she isn't married after all. Maybe her parents wouldn't lei her. H she'll just wail a lillle while, she'll see how foolish il is lo give up a man. she knows for one who has had only time lo fascinate her. He's loo old for her. Call her. Call her long dislance, now. Talk to her. Make her promise lo wait a while. If she'll wait, you tly home lonighl." Rollo put in his call, bul it was Jean's molhcr who talked to him. Tearfully she told him lhal Jean had eloped Ihe clay before.
