Sometime just before midnight the door to my room opened and the light went on. I sat up in bed. My first thought was that somehody had .- been killed on the trestle. Then I was fully awake and my mind pulled things together. "What's all this about changing your mind?" William ssid. Wallace was behind him. "There's not a lot to it, 1 just changed it." "Then change it back again." "Why should I care whether Wallace graduates?" "You .nfcrnal wishy-washer," William said. We. tied up, and I got It across the nose before Wallac« came between us. "He sure, cr.cug'., woii'i t,ik« it now," Wallace said. Mama came running up the staifs in her nightgown. When she saw that my nose was bleeding she threw her hands over her eyes and screamed. "Give me your handkerchief," I said to William. "I want my blood - to be on something you own." He gave it to me — more or less threw it llama sank down on my bed and began to cry. 'To think . . . just to llnnk Pd raise two boys that would come to this heathen practice tn my own house. She began to cry so hard we couldn't under* stand what she was saying. Wallace said, "Aw, Mama, lt*s • only his nose." In half a.minute she dried her • tvcs on the sleeve at her night- <JCA &»*». ta? gown and looked up at us. "What's your daddy taking so long about? want him to g«t a hold of you ?o." Wallace said, "He'» in the yard :alking to Urfcle Richard." "I don't know," Wallace said. But Uncle Richard had 10 sacks at sugar or. one of the car* that went through the trestle." I said, "Ha ... ha. Ain't that sad." "It's a whole thousand pounds,' 1 Wallace said. I said, "The straw that broke the camcl'i back, 1000 pounds of sugar. Now he can sue the railroad and get ceiling price—about half what he gave, 1'1| bet All the little fishes in th« creek can iiave a picnic tomorrow." 'Thal'i not so fuflny," WiHJam said. 1 threw his handkerchief back to him. He said, "Don't gel fresh with me. I'll fix that nose again." Mama got up and began to call Papa. There was no answer and she went downstairs "calling: "Benford! Benford! You come up here to these boys. I tell you right now I'm going to giv« up. I'll just pack up and leave . , ." "Watch him look wiM," William said. "You big-eared . . . Wallace shoved me against the wall. ."Don't you all start again. Don will come across if you'll leave him alone." "No, he won't," William saH "He's Just that stubborn. » • • VWE could hear steps on the " stairs, then heavy breathing. Uncle Richard was with Papa. He always asked such exact details about our lives (like how much each of us weighed), though think he never remembered anything except our middle names. Uncle Richard's eyes took us all in, then rested on my face. "Whew Who biffed you on the nose?" I nodded toward William. Uncle Richard turned and looked at him "You the big kingfish around here now?" "He was acting smart," William said. "Well, he Is jmart. He'i the big -aledict at the school." He looked ID and down Wallace. "You not mixed up in this?" "Sure," I said. "He started it." "Put the beans on th* table, Wallace Deering, Did you?" "He went back on his promise— Don did." "Donald David, did you or did you not go back on your promise?" "I did." "Thal'i the way to talk it. M you broke your verbal contract, don't crawfish about it. Now, Wai- ace Deering, would you lell us exactly the terms of the contract" "I flunked Mi is Brammon'i exam. And I'm not going to erad- iate, so ..." i "You mean I'm goinf lo gel that underwear graduation present back?" • » « ;< WfEI,L . . . There'i x make-up " exam Satxirday. Don laid iie'd lake It for me 1 because Miss Brammon she can't see good and can't tell us apart. Tonight be rued back . . . and William . . ." Hold it. All 1 want row k tj» lertns »f the contract. Have TOM slated that fully?" Ycssir." 'Dismissed. Step back and lei this nexl gentleman take the stand." William moved forward two or three steps. "Now, William August, lo trie very best of your knowledge, has the contract been fully and correctly stated, without error?" 'Yessir." "Th«r« were no other provisions?" 'Noisir." 'Was Ihis genlleman lo my righl promised any money, property, or Otherwise valuable goods for his services?" 'Nossir." "Dismissed." Uncle Richard stood up., "In as much aa DonaM David Meadows was not offered or promised l Just wage for hi> aerv- ices, the court hold* lh« contract null and void. Court adjourned, and I've got to go home." (T« Of C*ntbMKd) Television- Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT. Memphis.
