"Mary would b« • good deal of help to you in this big house," he said, solicitous a« always at my welfare. "I think 1 should bring her back with me." (Bill's and the guest room were at the moment unoccupied.) Then, as usual, Roger tipped his hand. "My bitter hall and two public enemies have visited my mother about long enough. Both sides are crying 'quits.' I've' got lo do something about It." He considered this for a minute; 1 suppose he was considering it, £or he knit his black brows and stated fixedly out of the window. "We could manage here very nicely with you and The Little Man. You'd like Mary," he concluded, temptingly. Whether I'd like Mary or I wouldn't like Mary was entirely beside the point. What I wouldn't like would be shitting §ide« and having Robbie and me lodging and at the mercy of Roger m our own house-—or, rather, more at his mercy than we already were. I was in an open frame of mind when a friend asked if we'd Uke in a couple, an Air Corps major and his wife. "Older people, jet- tied and responsible," my friend said. They were older and they were responsible. Major Capner was an instructor, bald, on the rotund side, with * spare chin, and he said he was 38 years old. Their only child, a boy of 14, was in boarding school in Massachusetts and Molly had rented her house furnished in order to gypsy around Lost: Black and White Screw Tall ulldoff. strayed from 328 Dougkn. 15.00 reward for return or Information eadlng to whereabouts, pn 26U or trie. s;3-p's-5;io Ihe country with the Major. Gypsy was Ihe word she used, and its use marked her as a woman of perspicacity. Saturday night, Robbie and 1 were nuesls of the Capners at the Officers' Club dance, and it was while (ripping the light fantastic wjth Major that he asked whether I'd ever been up in a 13-17. "I'm taking Molly up tomorrow. Would you like to goY" Would I like to go! Major said he could sifin in a wife, or mother, or both, and since Molly would be going, it meant T'd have to be Mrs. Capner, Sr., lor the flight. Gallantly he regretted it was not possible to sign in a shier. I agreed lo be Momma —in fact tittered to myself smugly, thinking of the loud guffaw which would fjreel my introduction as the mother of this balding, middle-aged man. JT was 3 clear day in February; the sky was as blue as bluebells and the snow had melted off the road. Major introduced Molly as his wife, Mrs. John Ciipner, Jr. The attending staff said "Ilowde- do" and showed her the dotted line. I got ready to grin in acknowledgment of the game we were playing. Fortunately 1 didn't grin, for never have I seen more polite and forma] gentlemen than those young officers when Major Capner said, "And this is my mother, Mrs. John Capner." I was prepared lo quip that 1 had been a child bride o( India, but I had no preparation (or their deadpan acceptance of me as the mother of this very mature major. When the tower signaled for us to take oft, Molly and I were standing, one behind each pilot, wearing earpiionee, listening to instructions from Ihe tower, studying the instrument panel as though it weren't Sanskrit.

Molly prodded from behind, the co-pilot nodded encouragingly, and Major pushed m« into his vacant chair. He held the earphone* while he pointed to the instrument panel. "See that line?" he shouted. "Just keep the level true to it." He pointed to a limplc gauge which had a stationary line running across it. A free line indicated the angle of Ihe ship't position in relation to the horizon. Wheti the ship was on absolutely even keel, it fell into position with [ the stationary line. He pointed to the pedals on which he now placed my feet, pressing down first with t)ie lefl a little, which dipped the port wing slightly, and then with the right, which dipped the starboard wing. "See how easy it is?" he shouted. Before 1 could draw bre»th V> shout "NO," he grabbed (he wheel and, pushing it down, pitched the plane straight for tlw earth. Raising it, lie righted the ship. "Easy, isn't it?" he shouted. "All you have to know. Now, let'* see you fly 'er." He placed the earphones over my head and to my ears. Then he backed away. (To Be Continued)
