She was very brown especially her hands; and her eyes ,were brown, really wonilcrfi'll jeyes, exactly like Wallace's. 'When jl looked at her brown hands jstreaked with blue veins, I wondered why she ever did anything for any of us. But I think she wanted only our respect, not our love. I would have said that Mama •net Papa didn't love cath other except that 1 had often heicd them whispering to each other about the most ordinary things. But we all knew she loved her garden. Look at those. ." she held out the bucket of new peas, first toward William, then toward Papa iWhen she saw Wallace's face she Ifrowned. "What've you all been |vp to?" ! She turned to William. "You'll Itell me the truth. Has he been crying?" j "Yes, ma'am." I "What about?" 1 "Oh, we got to fussing. And he got mad and I got mad." "That's the limit. After all the -, good news you got, this day ends up in a fight." "\Vc didn't fight." "What's the difference? Now you two hug one another's neck right now. You hear me?" They hugged. Mama held up the bucket again for all of us to see. "The vines are just clinging full. You never saw the like of peas! And the finest tomatoes I reckon I've ever had." Papa caufht Wallace's arm. "We've got to feed ''em good. A few tomatoes and peas now may innke the headlines blacker." "If the war don't get them," ^fama said. "It's not going to get 'em," Papa said. "You mark that down in your little book, sister." "They may change the draft and afl," Mama said. "No," Pap» said. "They'll soon bt 20 anyway. They's no need to be blind lo things. The last war got their Uncte Willieam. . . ." When she said Uncle William's name she always put an extra syllabic into it so that by sound alone 1 could tell whether she meant William or Uncle William—her brother who had been killed in France in the First World War. ". . . and Willieam was their age when he left." "He wanted logo," Papa said. "Well. . . ." Mama said the word in a way that settled things— at least for her. She took the bucket of peas into the kitchen. William looked at me. "Don't you let her know you're taking Wallace's exam. Likely as not she'd forget and ask Miss Brammon how much you made for Wallace." They went out. They never looked back or thought of asking me to go too. • • • pAPA .loved a hero; he wanted one of his boys to be a hero the way some men want dollars. Once, even my marks at school had been heroic to him; now, it was football. He put Wallace above William because he thought Wallace stood a better chance to bring home the laurels and allow him to say, "You remember the year my boy was All-Americ,in t and Tech was piny- ing Alabama. ..." It was no good, this business of sending boys off to war and getting them killed. Thousands of boys would get killed, but Iherc would only be a handful of All-Amcrirans. \Ve were at the supper table. and they were talking about the backfleld coach who had come thai afternoon. "He wanted to see you," Wallace said. "He waited as long as he could." "Twenty more minutes and I'da been here," Papa said. "But the main thing's the new ruling. He was positive about that?" "Yes. Ask William." "lie said it had already passed," William said. '-Any freshman can play on the varsity—if he's good enough. But you know he thought we were 19. I told him we'd be 20 in July." "What'd you do that for?" "He asked me." "Whal did he say when you told him? Say anything about the draft?" ' "He didn't say." "The war may be over soon," Papa said. "Soon?" I said. "You ought to read the papers. Papa." T.TE saw he was trapped, and so il he said. "That Hitler's smart- He's like a good spoiler in the highest part of the stadium—picking out the weak spots, tolling hii men where and when. His generals_ are like good halfbacks, good fullbacks. He's the quarterback." While he talked he put more spoonfuls of sugar In his iced tea; it seemed unnecessary, but I supposed that was belter than his habit of feeding it to hij filly. "Let's talk about something else. How you gonna gel lo the banquet Saturday night?" "A schoolbxis is going," William said. Wallace looked at me. "Top- water, you know who William's going with?" ' "Why bring that up?" William said. 'Can't we have a Mule peace at the table?" Mama said. 'That's what I say," Papa said. "Could 1 have some tea?" William said. "No," Papa said. "Milk." "But just smell it," William said. "The cow got In the wild onions Just smell it." He held it for Papa to smell. "If you'd eat some onion before you start to drink it you couldn't tell the difference." Papa said. {To Kt Continued) •SPACE SHIP HEADED EARTHWARD Ff?O,« K»HT 7 VECTOR 33-92! 6EEAT NEWS, WE'VE JU5T RECEIVED NEWS FROM TIIH SFflCE PU.VI FORM! gfl PRl e "S -•SHIP IS HEAPED EARfH WARD/ , ALL RK3HT!
