Ex pertly, the Filipino Victor unhooked from the wall and lowered into place a table top made of poJ- ished fruit wood. Over this he spread A cover- square of almost transparent gray chiffon faintly printed with swallows in flight. The bone china wa kept in a cupboard concealed behind a carved panel. The entire service—silver, Venetian glass am Belgian crystal, candlestick! ant ash trays—was evoked seemingly by magic. Everything in this remarkabli house-on-wheels had been plannec to operate at the touch of a finger tip. V ictor w orked silen lly, hi small, clean hands making no los motions, as it he were perforrnin a duty that had become automata through constant repetition. "You certainly know this traile like a book," Mrs. Malone said, take it you've been workinf fo Mrs. Everson a long time." "The trailer i* quit* D«W, b*r I have studied H." "You're very clever. Victor. 1 Tht little Filipino shragged- "With Mrs. Everson you must be clever! Or else out you go, like the cook this morning. She made the coffee weak, so Mr*. Ttverson threw it al her. Fortunately it remained in the pot, so the cook wa* able to dodge-" A LITTLE thrill of horror and panic crept up Mrs. Malone's spine. What in the world had she let herscU in for? At the same time a part of her mind wondered at the cultured language and enunciation of this Filipino boy. Another mystery! The bustle of. preparation went on. A* a final touch to the exquisite beauty of the dinner-table, Victor lighted the candles. He then chose a dozen records from a cabinet above the sofa, placed them on a record-changer and s«l them in motion. Music Boated through Ihe room intangible and romantic: a wait? by Arensky played with lacy precision by two pianists. Mrs. Malone returned to the kitchen. She was apprehensive and vaguely depressed at the thought of eating her own dinn alone. But Victor reassured her explaining that as *oon as Mrs Everson had finished and th dishes were washed, i second mea would b* served in the othe trailer. **Rudy cooks for us.

Shaded eleclric lights burned with a faint quiver, and Mrs, Nfa- lone soon became aware of the hum of a generator. She recalled, now, that she had used gas to cook Mrs. Everson's dinner.
