"You started this business of taking it. and you're going lo take it Now say 'yessir' like anybody would with ordinary common sense." I didn't answer, and he slapped me with the back of hii hand. I was rather glad h« did, for it seemed to settle a hundred matters between me and I don't know what. But before he could slap me again William said, "Now, Papa, there's no need of that." Papa turned hurried to the door. He stopped there and looked back at me. "I won't work my iieart out for somebody lhat has no respect for me or my word. You'd cxilter find you another place to hang your hal." His eyes looked is if he might cry. "I will, if you want me to." "I want you to!" William pushed Papa and Wallace towan. the stairs, anrt closed the door. Then he opened the cioor and said, "I wonder sometimes Just how r>cch of any kind of sense you got--you've spoiled everything for Wallace.

At least, he can enroll at Tech with 15 credits of the right kind." 'PHE next morning I went to the . filling station to wait for the bus to Corinth. I rtood insit'e so that Papa would not see me as he wenl to work. Then a kind of eno lough courage to ask Mr. Young who ran the station, though Dr. lart owned it) U he would loan ne 50 cents for > round-trip bu» icket. He said. "Mark Willis a loing right now. Ride with him " ft turned and called, "Hey, Mar't. This boy wants, to ride to town with you." " , : I got into th« cab of th* lok truck, which had no windshield and no doort; but I ildn't mind whether it had i cab. 90 long as we got away befort Pnpa "came along. When we had gone two or thre« miles, Mark Willis said, "You one of Benford Meadows'i boys?" "Yessir." "I recognized you by the favor. I seen you"r brothers play !oU of ball. You don't play ball, do you?" "Nossir." 'It's all right, but TuT aUua afraid my boy's gonn« come up with something broke. You-all not old enough for the Army?"
