XIX 4 FEW days l;ilor 15en Wood^ worth, a cattle buyer friend ot ours, proposed we make up a parly and go w'tn him and his wife, Sandra, to Oswaldo, o wide 5|jol in the road situated on the shoulder of the Rockies. He wns due lo oversee a larse shipment of rattle. 1 couldn't bear to leave Rollo home in Ins unhappy stnte of mind, and so I hinted to Ben thai he invite him to no along. It Wfifn't diflicult lo sell the idea. We crowded Rollo and Sandra ami me inlo the hack seat of lien's car and Ben and Rob sat up front. Sandra and I 'did a lot ot visiting tOKClhe:-— \vn hadn't seen each other since the day before—and in our preoccupation with ourselves, we paid little heed to Rollo. He must have had a bottle in his pocket fitted with a straw, for by the time we reached Oswaldo, Hollo was listing. Since it was still early in tne afternoon, Ben suggested we bypass the hotel and take a drive lo- ward the Main RaiiRe to give Rollo time to sober up. Mr. llinky who owned and operated the hotel was a rabid teetotaler. We drove until dinnertime and still Hollo hadn't shown a nicker of interest in the mountains w'e had to offer. Back in Oswaldo, Ben said, "Food's what he needs." We drove up lo the little cafe and the men, as inconspicuously as possible, propelled Rollo in and to an out-of-the-way table. Bollo sat blinking, each blink lowering his eyelids a shade more permanently. "Fresh air's what he needs," Ben said. "How about \Y'E nlc out dinner quickly, for ' we noticed that quite a crowd had gathered on the sidewalk be- foie the restaurant and we didn't want to hold up Irade. In Oswaldo the curl) it high, two good steps up from the street, possibly to keep mud from sloshini: onto Ihe sidewalks. Hollo had gol as far as the curb. There he had evidently sal down to take the air. And Ihen lain back lo rcsl And fallen asleep. A circle of mouth-open people were qatlu'red around the peaceful younft aviulor. anil some iilllc children were amusing themselves by running the length of his «- cumbeiH form. The more venture some began al the head rmc jumpe<l from his knees to th street Lielow: Hie timid ones be^ai at his kner-s and iumped oft hi head lo the sidewalk close be nealh. "Here! Whal's the idea?" He demanded. "Can't .YOU iff th fellow's sick " He shooed tl children away like flics off a pie(- ot .pie. "lie's drunk, thill's what he is." said llinky, \vlio had joined the crowd. His voice was brimming with outrage. "He can't slay in my holel. [ run a decpnl place." "Bui he's a soldier," 1 SHid, sure as always thai thai made a difference. "1 don't keer if he's a admiral," Hinky answered angrily. "He ain'1 agunla sleep in rny hotel. It 1 lei one drunk in. pailic'larly n soldier I'd have a vhTul madhouse on my hands inslid of a decenl, law- abiding hotel." Even il Hinky rclenlcd, I wondered how, shorl ot block ant Inckle or a fireman, they could hope lo gel Ilollo up Ihal ladde of a staircase. "Let him sleep in your car," tl obdurate llinky suRKeslcn. "lie niijjhl open the dour rmrt \v;rnde-t out and gel hurl." Samiia >je<-ted. "Lock Ihe tloors. then." llinky said, giving some income of Ihi: of the intelleirl we were deal- - iny wilh. • • • I {OH and lien, reinforced hy sonic .stalwart country hoys, managed lo Ret fiollo onlo Ihe back seal of Ihe car, no inciin feal since il was a two-dciur sciian, and we all repaired lo the lek-- ione office to call the dude much. 13ut tile place was closed for the .ason.

She'd scarce- y finished Idling us this when here was a call on llu- switchboard. It was a woman to say she :ou](ln'l help overhearing Ihe con- vcrsiilion and she was calling rinhl back to tell us her husband had a place for the soldier and if wr'd jusl wait, he'd meet us at Ihc telephone ofllce. Mr. Harris appeared within a mailer of minutes. He had a litlle place over yonder in a horse lol where he could put up a man occasionally when he was in a pinch. The men bedded Rollo down In the lillle shack. "He'll be in fine shape lomor- ret," Mr. Harris assured us. '-\Von'l ulow where he is. Can't git a irop to di ink." When we culled for Rollo next morning, he had not slept 11 oil. Mr. Harris spied the boltle. ".hnnp- ng .Ichoshaplial!" he exclaimed. 'He's went and drunk up Old Everlasting." He picked up the empty botlle lying on Ihe floor beside Hollo's bed. "Yes. sir, he's went and done il." He looked al us ip bewildenncnl and surprise. "Why, I bought thai slull nigh onlo a year ago. Hi-ought il home as a present for the boys. And I ain't found a cow poke yit could git a ssvaller down." He looked at Hollo wilh awe. "Yes, sir," he' repeated, admiration tinging his voice, "he's went and done it." <To Be CuiiUnucd) "The next blessing wo ought to hope tor is a nice littlo scilnn!" 1>RISC1L1,A'S I'OI 15y Al.
