Her examination grade* were at ways the last to be Dotted, because her papers were grad-d by a French teacher In Corinth. That procedure, she said, assured complete impartiality i n Hie grading. But we all kiW she didn't grade the-papers because she could hardly see. She was always Be.- ting me and Wallace and William mixed up. Th- list, tacked in the corner of the blackboard, was .(yped in alphabetical order At a .glance I saw th*t three names jwere underlined. '1 had done all fright; William hud passed, but (poor_ Wallace. The re-i line be- ,neath his name was drawn precisely, no doubt with a ruler.

Right after the football season—our senior year—William ashed me to help him catch up with second-year algebra. He reminded me, cleverly, that I had passed it when I was a sor-homore with only one mistake on all the monthly exams But for some reasoa (aiayb* be was not ci«v«| _ , NEA «,„«», Ip^T enough), [ set jut to give hijri ,. piece of my mind. 1 sak. "You just tell me one small reason that I should help you and I'll do every one of your 110 problems. You and Wallace never had a class with me except the ane you thought you might fail and would need. I'm through doing your work." But he put his arm on my shoulder and said. "Aw. don't be that way, Don. If you'll help me. I'll take everything yrj take next semester." 1 worked his problems, and he lived up to his bargain. That was not too bad. for I figure- 1 1 could get him through: 1 had learned a lot of French from Meb. But up comes Wallace. He was going to take French' U William did. Miss Brammon said, "Wallace, :re you sure? Absolulely sure?" He said, "Yes, ma'am. Absolutely sure." I knew that he was sure of his blond hair and brown eyes and perfect body — he hadn't reckoned with Miss Brammon's bad eyesight. • • • J HEARD Papa and Wallace nnd William move into the living room. ! got up and weni downstairs. At first, they never noticed me. I leaned against the stair post and waited. William saw me and got up. Then Papa and Wallace got up. as if I were a stranger. "Did jou go by school?" Wiliam asked. "Yes." "What did you find out? Did 1 pass?" "Yes." "Did Wallace pass!" "He made 47." •What did 1 make!" Willia-i asked. "Never mind thai." Papa said. "Sixty-four," I said. "What did you make?" William said. "Enough." "A 98." Wallace said. "In what?" Papa uid. Wallace yelled "In French Papa! In French!" Papa caught Wallace's shirt. What in the narr.e of high heaven possessed you to get mixed up with that? You-can't even speak English." > "Somebody told him they call signals in French at Tech. Defense against signal stealing." "Shut up! We know you made 88." Wallace said. .1 went closer to him. "No. 96 " Wallace sat down again. Papa stood over him. "Ho-v could 1 raise a boy dumb as you >re? How could you ever learn the signals not the piays—just the little old bitty signals? Why'd you do > thing like tills?" 'Now. Papa, hush," 'Vallace said. He began to cry. Papa went to one side of his chair, William to the other; each put an arm around Wallace. Papa snid, "W .'11 fl x lt some . way. I'll ask old man [jui e u he'll fix If "He won't," Wiiliam said "Well, he'll want that principal's contract renewed one of these days, won't he?" . "Yes, but he won't do anything." "What's the matter with him?" "Integrity," I said. I wailed for one of them to tell me to hush. But they didn't, f or Wallace seemed to be taking it harder Naturally 1 got myself deeper Into things, because I can't stand to see anybody cry. So 1 said. "All right Miss Brammon's giving a make-up Saturday. I'll go and take it for you. She' won't know the difference.'' • • » WALLACE quit crying and they all stood up. Wallace said. She can't see anrf she's alwavs getting us mixed up In class. Why il he wears my football sweater . . . But what about the others that failed?" "He means they'll recognize Don," William said. "Art's not going to take II. Betty will he all right—if she knows it's for Wallace." ! said. "You could slip Her a few answers," Wallace said. Already he was laughing and Papa was smiling and William was about to do one or the ether. (T* B« Continued.) Televisibn- Tonitc, Tomorrow WMCT. Memphis.
