Since Mr. Aptnn was on the job. I had him check rates on Bill's room and the guest room. He agreed that S30 for a single room and 5*10 lor a double with connecting bath was about right. I felt very professional now Hint our prices were approved. From our experience with the Morgans, we learned two new things to be feared: cooking on a laundry stove and baby Sitters. I knew that sound rose, and I spent a mimiie or two wondering just how homesick Kogcr might become—though it was hard to imagine him a father—when baby ;qtinlls rose from the basement bedroom lo his room two floors above. "Never mind about Roger," ny good fairy should have said. "Think of yourself. Smells ripe, Ion." [ won't say (hat Betty cooked Eyctalinn spaghetti three lime? a day; (hat would be hyperbole.

We returned from the Club to finish the evening at the Annex and were greeted by sound? of n dance band in our basement. Roger tuned in to a station lor music, but his and the one that was already sounding out did not gee; two dance bands in one sniail house is one band too many. I listened at the head ot the stairs. I judged there must be at least six girls and at many boys. 1 walked down the stnirs wondering how I could justify the fact that whereas we wore dancing upstairs, the children might not have the same privilege in the basement. My intrusion wns met with cold stare 1 -. I had been right; there were a dozen flaming youths jitter bugging. Since they didn't choose lo notice tny appearance at their party, 1 walked over to the radio and Unned it down so I coitld m«ikc myself heard. "Which one of you is the girl Mrs. Morgan hired?"
