Search for a Hero By Thomas Hal Phillips TUB STOHTi A. . ,«..„!, „, , RiiM.v,;:^ 1 VIII HAD not "'ought o( joining the Navy—i figured the Navy didn't do much fighting—but while I waited in that long hall a chief and two yeomen opened the Navy offices, t was lifc-d of waiting, and I followed the chief and his men. I answered a few questions: age, education and the standard list. Then I said, "1 want to go today " The chief said, "What's your hurry! You stole'something?" "I don't want to wait around home—not even one day." The chief scratched around at his neck. ^"You not written permission from your folks?" Nossir." You've got to have that. We can do everything else I guess Then you go home and get your ; papers all signed and he back here at 8 o'clock. I'm going to strain a jpoint and get you on tonight's (draft for New Orleans—ajv] you'd Shelter make a good sailor." If ! was going to join, 1 wanted to join whole-hog, and make sure I got into the real war. It I got killed, maybe it would be a glorious death, heroic anyway. If I didn't get killed, : could talk about the battle at so-and-so wh.'le Wallace and William and Papa talked about the came with so-antl-so. I said, "Could you put me into the .amphibious force?" . The chief looked funny. "We don't put you nowhere. You'll go to New Orleans and then likely to the Lakes or to Diego. But wherever you end up at, you won't have no trouble getting inlo the am- phibs—you might have some •trouble getting out." Within an hou. B drummer picked me up. I smiled with the feeling that The Immeme Design was pleased. I thought how difficult it would be to explain why I was smiling, how one small movement-of the face went back for years and seemed to touch everything I had ever known. VffHEN I got home, only Wallace was there, in the living room, his feet propped on a chair and his French book in his lap, closed. He turned his whole body around to look at me. "I thought the French business was all settled," I said. "I might as well try it once more. It can't hurt. What are you doing away, from the store?" T haven't been to the store today. I've been to the city . . . and am now a 99 per cent member of the United Slates Navy. Soon as Papa and Mama sign this paper, I'll be whole-hog and long-gone." I showed him the paper. "What if Papa don't give over?" 'That would b< tough." "What will you give me to take it to him? He's working on the trestle." "What's your price?** "Sixty-five on lhal exam tomorrow." 'I can't Irade. I'm on tonight's draft for New Orleans. I have to be in Corinth by eight." "It's going to cost you. But III guarantee the signature." "How?" "Because f. know a way, and I'll use It. If anybody can get it, you know who can. The price will be . . all my freshman English themes ..." "Is that all?" "Yes. Give me that thing and your fountain pen. You'd better start talking to Mama—she's in the garden." After Wallace left I went to the organ. I could play a few things that 1 had learned by myself mostly hymns. In i few minutes I knew lhal someone was standin -Jhind me. I turned and there was Mama standing behind me'. "You halfway scared me. You iounded for all the vorld like your Uncle Willieam. Did you eat at he store?" 'I wasnt at the store. I was !M Corinth." 'For Mr. Wilkes?" •For myself. I've joined th« Navy." "Well . . . what an earth? Bc- .•ause you're mad at your daddy, hat's it. The same thing happened 20-odd year ago: a fuss with Benford and your Uncle Willieam was id to the war. You can't tell me listory don't repeat itself. You're rot coming back — I know that Yo.u're walking In Willieatn's shoes, ami mark my words—you'll die in France." "Maybe they'll send me to the Pacific." "It's all the same." "Wallace has gone now for Pap> to sign tne papers—you're supposed to sign them too." J SAT at the coofc - table whit* Ma*ma brought out a dish of string beans, cooked with bacon, and a plate of corn muffins and a quart fruit jar of buttermilk. Then Wallace came running Into the house. He threw the paper on the lable and said, "Signed and scaled, topwalcr." I handed it to Mama, and Wallace gave her my pen. She dried her hands on her apron and signed without reading or saying a word. "Thank you, M.tma." "You're welcome." She did not look up; she was carefully scraping the eye of a large potato. "Thank you, Wallace." "Just remember the trade." , "Where are you going now?" Mama said. I wondered how she knew I waj about to leave the house. - ;"To say goodby to Meb and i w others. I'm leaving at 8:30." "Tonight?" A few peelingi slipped from her lap. I picked them up for her. "Yes, ma'am." "And your last meal In this house nothing but muffins and beans." "And butlermilk," Wallace said.
