The blue law unlluisiasl says the workers will need all' the sleep 1 they can get, and the boom-town boomer says what they'll need is recreation.

CHAPTEH IX JACKIE was glad now that she had a lovely now dress, purchased so reluctantly among her "trousseau-clothes," for Ihe dinner-dance. Ol course the fact that Beryl Mclrosc would be lliere had nolh- ii)K lo do with it] Kvclyn had seen to it that the setting for this evening should be as romantic as possible. Gay Japanese Innlrnis had been hung around the velvety lawns and terraces, near the outdoor swimming pool a platform for dancing had been erected and just in case there would not be any moon, a'u artificial one had bee)) supplied. "Dear me," Evelyn whispered in an aside to Jackie, as they received the long line 'of guests, "what cto you. suppose is keeping lloger? He should have been here ngp.s ago. I can't understand il." Jackie, the golden necks in her eyes loo bright, her lovely face Hushed, her fair head held high, could not understand it, citlicr. Surely Roger would not let her down on this important night. He had promised lo come. Ho had promised lo help her carry this crazy trial-flight engagement through, no mailer what happened. She had scarcely seen anything at all of Hogcr since that day at the Held. That new silver ship had been the one in which he would make his night. He .had been taking it up every da3', experimenting with what il would do. And Jackie knew that Beryl Melrose had. been slnying at a small holel near lhc field so lhal she could watch his progress. he had lo RO atlcr Mrs. Melrose," Jackie answered her mother. "He will want lo see lhal she gets here." "I still can not understimd why .Von;-fcll yon must invite her to your ' party," Evelyn reproved. "Urmembcr what 1 lold yon! If I were you I ivouM keep Roger away from such a fascinating creature,, nilher Ilian dcliheralely throwing them together, my dear." "I'm not throwing them together!" .Jackie flared. Oh, why didn't Roger come? There was simply no excuse . . . "Ah, there he is now—and with Mrs. Melrose, just as you thought!" Not only Jackie, but everyone in the room, watched the entrance Hint Beryl Melrose made then. She w;is the sort of woman whose coming into a room would be (cr/ncd an entrance. Slie was easily lhc most beautiful woman present. Sho was all in white tonight, even lo lhc IOIIK string of pearls about her bountiful Her big eyes looked larger and darker than ever, her skin more gnrdcn'ia-likc. "It's all my fault that Roger is late," she said in her self-assured, gracious manner, thai made Jackie fee! so jjauchc. "We were making some very important tests today and got so interested. I do hope you'll forgive him!" 'H doesn't mailer in (ho least," Jackie mnvmured cooly. She felt (lint Roger should do his own apologizing. She knew inslincUve- ly that Beryl Melrose had purposely seen to it thai Ihey should bo late. "I'm terribly sorry." Roger did offer additional apology of his own, ns his sirong "rin circled Jackie's slim waist for the first dnncc. "It wasn't Beryl's fault, Jackie. It was mine. But you knew I'd manage lo get here, didn't you, my love?" "I li«-U'e told you before diet f am not your love," Jackie gave him n stern look. She had had to pretend before the world that she and Roger were a pair of turtledoves when the announcement ol their engagement had been made at the dinner iable, but they could drop all lhal nonsense now. "You look so sweet tonight, with those slars in your hair—and in your eyes—lhal I almost wish you were," he told her, with his gamin-grin. She had no right to look so desirable if she expected him to remember that this was all pretense. * * * "]-)ON'T be silly!" she_ndmon- •" ishcd. But secretly she was pleased that he thought she looked nice. U was almost like flying, dancing with Roger, their steps matched so pcr'lcclly, the music carried Ihcin on wings.

"I have l)ccn busy," Jioger said. He gave her a whirl thai soul hci- full skirl in a wide swirl and practically lifted the silver slippers from the floor.

There's plenty lo do, making ready for :i flight of Ibis sorl. 1 don't waul lo slip up anywhere. I Isope to he rcjidy to leave for (he west coast hy the end of another wck." "Another week!" Jackie said faintly. Maybe because she had not quite got her breath. That was so very soor,. "Is Mrs. Mcl™MC going with you—to lhc coast, I. mean?" How could she keep Roger away from this olhci- womim—even if sho wanted to— under the circiiiiistjitK.T.s 1 ? "Sho expects to," ftogcr said. "She certainly is H wonderful person, Jackie.

"What do you mean by that?" he asked. "Nothing. Nothing at all!" Jackie tossed this ou" lightly. 1C Roger did not have sense enough to know that Beryl Melrose was probably interested in him because he was young and handsome, Jackie would not pul him wise. "Why, see here!" Roger practically slopped in the middle of lhc: door. "I believe you're jealous, Jackie!" "Jealous!" She drew back, glaring ;it him. "I believe you nrc!" He bent closer lo her, holding her so firmly Hint she could scarcely get hci- breath again. "Do you know I have a notion lo kiss yon for that, my love! In public this time, of course. So that everyone will believe in this ridiculous engagement!" "1C you dare!" Jackie gasped. She pulled away from him. She was trembling nil over—from anger, of course.
