She trembled a little because no one called her pretty any more. Was it because she didn't want them to? She leaned forward, now, and peered at her reflection in one of the polished aluminum pans that hung over the oven. She saw woman in her late Ihiriiei, with a pert nose, a short upper lip, a pointed chin, hair dark brown and braided, gray eyes. "Don't be a fool," stie said aloud. She prepared lunch with an almost violent efficiency. When th- mid-day halt came. Victor explained that Mrs. Everson was having a tray with Rudy. Twenty minutes out for lunch. "We are behind schedule." the Filipino said. "We must push R to make up time." Another stop was made at sundown and again Viclor set a tray for two, carrying it forward to the cab. "She Ifkt* hem* alone wtth him," nopes." Victor shrugged. "We drive all night tonieht. So please make the coffee strong!" They were in motion again Mrs. Malone served the whe Marches*. He had dressed for din- ler and was freshly brushed and shaved; she noticed a fragrance of eau de cologne. The candles wavered, the gardenias shivered, the robot record-changer substituted Bach for Prokoneff and Stravinsky for Elgar. "You are an excellent cook, Malone." "Thank you, sir." With desert, a foaming prune whip, the Marchene drank » small glass of Benedictine and smoked a cigaret. Mrs. Malone noticed his hands; they were long-fingered, Urge, the wrists slender. Immaculate hands, strong and sensitive. He glanced up and caught her looking at him, and her heart jumped. He smiled but said nothing, and as she cleared, the table, he seemed to have forgotten her. The comforting personal interest of the morning was kwt She lelt alone aga,in. a . . t J^URING the night, late, the trailers began to climb i steep mountain road. Mrs. Matone had lived at sea-level for 90 many years that the sudden altitude wakened her to a feeling of pressure and deafness in her ears. She swallowed to overcome H, and conscious of a rapid pulse, got out of bed and went into the kitchen. The window was open; she sat beside tt until dawn. The deepening light disclosed that the trailer* had reached the summit of a tumultuous range. Below. another plain, pitted and scarred like the face of the moon, surged to the horizon.

He yawned and stretched, both armi above his head, his fists clenched. Then he came into the kitchen. Madam Noah'i asleep," he said, "Make me some coffee, for goodness sake." He sat at the ^narrow table, pushed his cap back and rubbed his fingers over his bloodshot eyes. Lucky (or us the weather's warm," he said. "I'd hate lo meet blizzard in these mounlains!" Mrs. Malone got out the coffee pot and started to heat the water. As she started measuring the coffee she turned to Rudy. "Isn't Victor coming in?" Rudy stopped rubbing his eves and nodded, "Make enough [or him. He'll be along as soon as he checks his tires." a • a VICTOR, his face drawn with Ih. fatigue of driving the sedan which was pulling the smaller trailer, came to the door. He looked oddly disheveled; his blue- black hair, usually pasted back with oil, fell in thick ropes over his forehead. "I'm dead on my feet," Rudy said. "How, Victor?" "I too,""Victor'said. The men drank the hot coffee, holding the cups between their cold hands, gulping noisily. "That fool woman!" Rudy said with disgust. "All night she tells me to hurry! Hurry—and on that grade! If I had, we'd have landed upside down in the bottom of • canyon." Victor held out an empty cup for a re-fill. "She's sure scared <rf thai bomb." he said. "Who isn't?"
