"Less lhan a year after Pappy died Mrs. Everson had established herself in a big house in Bel Air. She entertained well — very well — and pretty soon everyone was coming to her par- lies. She's got something, you know, and she's a whale of a good actress. No doubt about it. She even fooled me at Rrst! But when you drive a woman's car, she talks to you. Lord! What a hard egg! II ever I saw someone out for No. 1 . . .» Rudy's eyes flickered. "Then one day she got a Big Idea . . ." He broke off, raised an eyebrow skeptically. "You've heard o( nuclear fission . . . ? N "You mean the alom bomb? Yes, I've heard of it." Rudy pushed his coMe« cup aside. "Now listen carefully," he »id. "1 wouldn't tell this to everybody It's a Hide hard to take " It began he explained, with casual conversations: people discussing the Bomb, wondering how soon it would be tried on America: where they'd go, in case: whether Los Angeles would be i likely target—all the usual talk. At first. Mrs. Everson paid little attention. She felt too safe, personally, to worry much When tier new friends talked of living in underground cities or mountain caves, she just told them not to be silly. The authorities would never lei it come to that! Rudy smiled. "Have you ever sat on the beach." he said, "when the tide was coming in? You don't pay much attention at first. And ihen. all of a sudden, in comes a wave a little bigger than the rest, and you get wet. It must have been lhat way with the Boss. One day she said: "'Rudy, do you really think there's any danger in this atom business? I mean, could everything just explode and burn up?' "I told her I didn't know. Myself, I'm fatalistic about it. If we ever do get blown up, we'll never know what hit us. So why worry? But that didn't satisfy her. I guess she was too anxious to make up for lost time." • • • TTE broke oft and stared moodily •* down at the table. A peculiar tension seemed to have invaded the room. Then Victor spoke. "Tell her. Rudy," he said. "Tel) me what?" Mrs. Malone demanded. Suddenly, without reason, her heart contracted.

"Is lhat what you're trying to say?" Rudy nodded. "Mrs. Everson thinks so" he said "Then she Is crazy!" "Maybe. But one thing's certain: she didn't jump at any conclusions Before she decided, she did a lob of research. I'll hand her that She even got to know some o' the big scientists, and entertained for them a lot. "Maybe one of them lalked out of lurn I wouldn't know Anyway she got hold of the idea lhat the whole country was aboul to be blasted to hell and gone, and she Ilaimcd she knew when "A lot of holy baloney!"
