'Hie sun rose hot ami set hot and stored up enough heat on earth during the IS odd hours il shone to keep us nicely warm all night. On the morning alter a particularly mel low night, a harried young gir rang our door bell. She underslrxx that our basement was empty— Pot had left the day -before—and she wanted to rent it.

You couldn't possibly live in our basement." 1 was a Iking fast, always hopeful of scoring if I could hold the other ' side from making a point. "It's too dark in summer. The leaves on the trees and shrubs shade the windows. Jt would be a dreary place for you to spend the day." "Is it the baby you object to?" "No, it's too tiny to he much trouble. I only feel you can find more suitable quarters somewhere else." "Do you know of any?" "No." The girl didn't touch the screen doorknob or make any attempt to enter the house; she merely stood her ground squarely and earnestly stated her CEISO.

"Come in and I'll convince you I'm right." 1 said. She called her husband and I saw as he walked in from the car that he was an Air Transport Comnxand captain. We filed downstairs. The young people looked thoroughly into the laundry, saying that when thc> were cooking, they could close the door and open the windowi and gel rid of any gas fumes that way I pointed oul they cho- "No refrigerator, confidently. *'Oh, we have one, rused. They examined the bedroom carefully: noted that sunlight wa: streaming in the south and east windows in spite of what ] ha said, that there was a huge close and space enough by the bed for the baby's crib. They made no comment on tti sitting room, merely sank down on the davenport and relaxed. Th air was at least 15 degrees cooler than out-of-doors. "May we have it?" Caplai Morgan asked. I mentally ran over what I migh lave to enrture: mir cnrsT . . . my kitchen? . . . drinking? Obviously, vith their own car, ours should >e safe.

He covered the laundry table wilh some leftover Sonitas from the powder- room walls and put hooks ( under the laundry shelf to hang pots and pans from. There were already checked gingham curtains at the windows; the walls were pninted sunlight-yellow and the woodwork apple-green.
