EVERSON had crossed the compartment and now opened • door in th« far side of the vestibule which folded back upon itself like a fan ... a compact and space-saving contrivance. Beyond, there were two rooms with an op«n door between: a Kitchen, ami a bed-sitting room. Farther back, another door opened into storage space and a lavatory. Everything was brand new, shining, of the finest quality, convenient, workable. The kitchen itself made Mrs. Malooe's mouth water. She thought a chef from a swank hotel would enjoy cooking over nich a stove, using such utensiU within arm's reach of «uch a Tariety of spices, flavorings, condiments and essentials. The window, curtained daintily, now framed the familiar desert. th< dark clumps of mesquite, the distant blue of. hills. "As you see," Mrs. Everson said, using the phrase again and with her own particular emphasis, "the room you would occupy has it* own radio, a place tor your clothes, a reading light." She turned and looked directly at Mrs. Malone, as if searching lor some clue to her personality. "You seem to be a sensible woman," she said. "Not like that fool who just left. I warn you. there won't b« any amusements where I'm going. But I'll pay you well. Three hundred dollars a month. How about it?" • • • 71TRS. MALONE realized that she must make her decision quickly. Her mind tried to encompass all the evidence at once, but there wasn't much to go by . . only Ihese obvious facts: here, manifest, were wealth and power. Here was luxury. The expensive freedom available only to the privileged. . . . Adventure, perhaps. Not Joe's kind . . . not the humane exploration, the search for truth. This had something uneasy about it. even a little sinister, but also exciting. Mrs. Malone's senses tickled with apprehension and with desire. "1 wonder." she said, "if you would mind my asking a question? Is this a scientific expedition?" Mrs Kverson smiled. Her long fingers caressed her thighs and she shook her head so that the heavy weigh! of hair swung from side to side. "Not exactly," she said. "I'm going hunting.

"Yes," Mrs. Malone said. Suddenly, she decided. "I'll take the job." "Very well. And please call me Mnclam. All of my servants do." A sensation of sharp anger rose in Mrs. Malone like a snake coiling to strike. She was. normally. an even-lempcrcd woman, not given to resentment, but she despised arrogance. She controlled herself, now. with an effort"Very good, Madam." she heard herself say. She sounded so c.v.iclly like a professional domestic that she laugher! inwardly. All at once she began to enjoy herself. "plfE trailer swayed slightly when in motion, and there was a faint, faraway sound of deep- treaded tires. The outside world seemed non-existent: it appeared in flowing variations across the windows, but had no more reality lhan a series of pictures. The interior itself was air- cooled. Mrs. Malone noticed the blurred whirring of small fans set in ventilators, and as she moved about the kitchen she felt wisps of wind that stirred her hair and touched her cheeks. She was not expected to prepare lunch An order scribbled on a piece ol blue paper crested in gold called for dinner promptly ai six. to be served in the "mam salon."

W7"HO Victor might b*, Mrs. Malone liad no idea until, toward sunset, when the caravan bumped cautiously ofT the road and halted. Mrs. Malone saw the driver, quick, catlike, walking back toward the second trailer. A few moments later her kitchen door opened and Victor entered her life. He was a Filipino, of medium height, young, with an immaculate skin and very black eyes and hair. He seemed nervous, apologetic. "Are you the new cook? I am Victor, I am pleased to meel you." His English was Impeccable, with a fresh, childlike enunciation. "Hello, Victor. My name'! Malone." Her cheerfulness pleased him visibly. He gave her a shy. quick smile. "I'm glad the other one went away," he said. "Already she was scared and unhappy But you are brave." 'Nol brave. Just reckless." Mrs. Malone said. "You see. Victor. I'm not one to care much what happens to me. Now show me about the labte . . I'll help." "Thank you." Victor said. (To Be Continued) WASH TUBIJS Do You Have (u Tell [Js?
