Cotonel and Mrs. Cartwright didn't appear until after we hod had time to digest— or at least swallow—the Russians. 1, thinking my best chance to make myself understood lay in talking lo Colonel Bolovitch who, according lo Roger, spoke some English, moved over ncxl to him. He greeted me wilh a warm smile; lus dark-brown eyes shone as Ihough he were filled with inner fire and longed for the words to express il. "We had planned to have this party in our garden," 1 said. "Izzalso." "Yes. But the rain changed our plans." "Roger thought our barbecue would interest you." At the word Roger Colonel Bo- lovitch glanced in his direction He said, "Izzalso." "We don't have rain in August very often," I said. "Izzatso." "I imagine Russia and Montana have much the same climate." "Izzalso." **Yes. . . . Though I've never been to Russia." "Izzalso." "I'd like to go," I added brightly Roger having Ijltl me lhat if 1 were polite enough to Ihe Russians, they might invite me lo come to see them after the war. "Izzatso." A violinist may be able to play an entire concerto on one siring but I'd like lo meet Ihe woman who can maintain a conversatioi interminably on Jzzatso.

Yes, everyone »ay« so." "Roger—" here Colonel Bolo- 'ilch looked again in Roger's di- •eclion "—tells me you are mak- ng greal progres* in learning our anguage." "Izzatso." T LOOKED around for help. Colone] liolovilch and I were hold- .ng a scintillating conversalion, no ioubl about that, but any minute [ might resort lo asking questions Then what? Colonel Cartwright irioved away from the group by the piano and over toward us. I didn't clutch Colonel Cartwright's arm like a drowning sailor clutches a life raft, but 1 did take hold of him. "I think it's wonderful bow Colonel Bolovitth understands English," I said. "Is thai so?" Colonel Cartwright said. We were half through dinner. Ihosc of us who weren'l inter- preling, when Colonel Kolovitch proposed a least to Russo-American friendship. Colonel Bolovitch proposed toast to his host and hostess, according to the word-weary interpreter. Colonel Dojovitch toasted the American Army. Miss de Luce toasted the Amer.- ican home. Robbie Loasled our guests. Roger toasled the Russian Army Colonel Cartwrighl toastec Lend-Lease. Mrs. Cartwright loasled Grea Falls. Roger poured wine. The inter preler look another gulp o food. I thought what a pity it wa: we hadn't simply got down tc toasting first thing and then serve< unadorned barbecue, because a soon' as we left the table th nests sealed themselves on Ihe uor and, in the Ksperanlo of dice, nol craps. Robbie sitir! to Colonel JJulo- ilch, throwing down a silver dul- ir, "I'll fade you." "li/also," replied the Colonel. "Yes, that's so," said Uobbic. Only he didn't. AT 11 o'eloek Roger turned on the, radio. The announcer's •oice blared forth: "Ambassador Villiam H. Standlcy, in reply to llalin's statement thai Ihe Hed Army alone is bearing the whole weight of the war, said tonight, and I quote: 'I have carefully ooked for admission in the llus- sian press that Ihe Russians receive material aid from America, > r cl I have failed to fmd any real acknowledgment of it.'" Al the word Stalin, Ihe Russians .ransferred Ihcir attention from .he dice to the radio. At Ihe recurring word Russian, they looked more and more interested. Though heretofore the inicr- preler had translated any and all conversation glibly, Ihis time he slrugglcd for words. Colonel Ro- lovitch spoke peremptorily. The interpreter, a far from happy looking mini, did his duly. Colonel Bolovitch rose from the floor. So did Colonel Kolovilch and Colonel Dolovitch. They lent their arms lo their ladies. Gravely, all smiles gone, Ihe fire in Colonel Bolovilch's eyes out and the ashes cold, they shook hands with Hobbie and me and went home. The interpreter and Miss de Luce accompanied them, mumbling gracious thanks as they sidled out the door, one eye on the Russians and one on us. Colonel Cartwrighl and Mrs. Carlwright and Roger and his guesl left direclly afler. I was still in Ihe kitchen when Roger returned. "Well, anyway," he said lamely, "they had a good time unlil the radio was turned on." "Izzatso," I said bitterly. The party was nol a lolal loss; possibly Colonel Cartwright felt he had to make some concrete return for the evening, for, like an amoeba, Roger's silver bar split in half and made two.
