Inc Stntfon. XII J WAS early for the exam—eager, •^ 1 suppose. David came in with thc..prnef and sat behind me. When all 29 of our platoon were there and seated, the chief efficiently distributed the papers, backs up. and gave proper instructions and proper precautions that both speed and accuracy were Involved. Then: "Now, men. don't be scared of this thing. Just do the best you can. Remain in your seats when finished. Tomorrow nl 0845 grades will be posted, along with your destinations. Ready? On »he mark • • - g"'" I was the first to finish—I had not yet learned thLt one should never be first. But there was nothing .to the test if you had re.nd the Blue Jacket's Manual. The chief took rny paper and kept eying me, as if he thoujht I had smuggled in a copy. Occasion: y .. he read a page, and finally called me to the front of the room. "Whal kind of mint: you got?" "What kind?" "Here. Read this." He opened a book—Dalton's Modern Seamanship. "Read that page, there." If the print is not too small I can look at a page and know |) what's on it—like looking at a - face: all at once, not the eyes, then the nose, then the chin. A« long as I can remember a part of it, 1 can remember all of it; when It goes it goes completely. l!e ctosc-d the book. "\Vliai lid it say?" "Word for word?" "Yeah." " 'When hearings on points \, 8 (_ are ar;Nra:c. U.e .'ix \vui oc accurate, and ail lines will COID.- ide at point F. If a triangle Is formed, a less accurate fl* will be determined by the center of—'" "What did the last sentence say?" " 'Observe the bearing closely; if there is no appreciable change the vessel ii steering j collision course.' * "That's enough. Your paper's all right. I've always wanted to see somebody with 3 photographic mind. But how's come you ain't gol no muscles?" • "Never had to work." He took hold of my arm. "If you had some me. th^re. you'd be a whale in this navy. Where you from?". "Mississippi." "Maybe you got hookworm. Course you're not so lean. Hookworm makes you lean." "1 wouldn't know." "You always had enoueh to eat?" "Too much." "Oh . . . You're the kid with dough?" "Who told you that?" "I got It straight now. This life's gonna be a little rough on you, but you'll pull through. That's all. Llsl'll be posted out. Id t tomorrow at 0845." , Just as i gol outside I heard the chief say. "That kid's got a photographic mind and his old man's a millionaire." The Texan said, "leah, you can tell he's filthy rich,— won't spend a quarter for a milk shak ." ' • • • I THOUGHT of the shock the chief would gel when he opened my Service Record to record my grade and saw that my father laid ties and drove spikes tor a living. The next morning 'the list w»s posted. Alter 1 I hurried to the chief's office. He was drink- Ing coffee, his foot cocked uv on t!.e window sill, the saucer resting oh his knee, the sunlight on his wi-;e :;.ish t.-re In 'le iht tl.s: way, u teemed thai uc have been much more than a chief yeoman—a gentleman farmer looking out upon hl« land, « mill owner, watching hl« hundred! of workers rush to their lobs. "Chief, there's no destination listed for me." He did not mjve: he was looking out the window. "Maybe" you not Going nowhere." "How r-oTr-"" "Sofl spot In my heart. I got • kid neirly old as you. I'm ncrt gonna feed vou to the woh'es lust because you ?ot dour?h." He nut the cup and saucer on the window sill and turned around. The U«ht made hl« sllchtly tray hair look thin, made his heavy-set body seem tired — all like a .schoolteacher just before the end of the term. "I don't want to stay her*. Everybody else is going to the «m- nhibfous force. I'd like to go too." ' "Kid. you'd be a whale If you had a luntan and a few more ooundi UD here " He hit hi« <-bfrt "You gonna stay here with • me till TOU set it. The oulrkest way is an hour down In Versailles every day. 1630 to 173'. There's a general grudge In this world against rich folks and jood mlrx!i. T know because 1 Rot left out tn both cases. When we change you up a little you cai. take whatever's dished out. Take this back to the eaUey. You'll have mesr-roofc duly this week." He handed me the cup and saucer. T LOOKED at him. "If you're •*• keeping me here because you think I'm rich. m»yb« you ought to know my daddy It a hand on the railroad. He's not over, a sec tlon foreman." "Yefti can't fast-ball me. A mind like you got don't belong to DO pore boy," After a minute I said, "All right you win. We're rich If you want It that way. but I want to fet away from here." He laughed again and shook hi* head. "You can't bribe me. I'm a perfectionist, see: 1 believe In perfection. I'm gonna make something perfect out of you. That't all I'm Interested In In this we Id —perfection Now. with a little work in Vo:'<-fll2s . ."
