Only tliis laughter was terribly She wanted to hide her head, her njury from the worjd; she wanted :o give in to this aching misery, o let it sweep over her, carry her jway.

Tlie platform quivered; the building shook. Jackie picked up her bag and pressed forward wilh the others, a.s the train came to a -slop. She was ahont to put hev foot on the fust slep when suddenly someone caught her arm, swung her around swiftly. "Jackie . . . wail! Oh, I did close to tears.

The principal point against the lax was llml iiilercollcniate athletic contests arc mi essential feature of higher education and us such arc a function of sl»'e government. Counsel for (Jic Govermncnt blew (hat contention .off the campus. Even if football was essential, they argued, il would not lie essential lo have paying spectators. But the truth is, they averred, that football "Is a gigantic commercial nctli'ity." For years our uiilyerslly dons have been filling the air wilh lamentalions over thai very fact. Indeed, "commercial activity" K a mild dcli- niliou ot intercollegiate football as the calendar swings into Ihe gold and purple of early aii- tu.nin and Is borne along the crescendo of lowering November's "big games." Eminent sports writers Jiaye called it a racket. Emphasi.s on football has been bewailed iu tlje fli.icst diction of our loftiest scholaishiii. Peimarers have been filed, 'llircal.s have been ultcrctl lo abolish il. But football goes ou and oij, oiid live p.opulac.e pours in in tidal ivnvcs.

Sh<i 1 inked an arrn through J.ickic's,(! picked up her bag in the other land, Jed (he way back inside the station. The waiting room was deserted now. Beryl sal down on .1 bench, nodded for Jackie to sit down, too. "I can't see what there is to lalU about," Jackie said. She sat dow;\ reluctantly. She did not think that talking could change anything. She resented the fact that Beryl liad prevented her from taking,,'tfV* train. "I told you last ni&h'. f| was leaving today," Jackie re-.] minded. "You even said, Beryl,! (bat you thought it would he best. And Roger, when I told him thi.j morning—when I said goodby—.-• Roger said the same thing." That should prove to Beryl thai: lalkjng was in vain; that Jackuo hould have taken the trniu. toger had wanted her to go. Roger lad not tried to slop her. U THE WHOLE POPULATION GOES TO THE RETAIL ' APPBOXIMATEUV niispry, lilling her whole being, an ache that would turn to dull emptiness, no .doubt, iu time. For this farewell was the end of everything for her. H would be as Evelyn had said: Jackie knew she never again would love anyone as .she loved Roger. First love was the sweetest; the saddesl, too. She opened the palm of her hand and there, cradled in its grasp, was Roger's pin. In her {light from the hospital she forgot that she had still clutched il in her hand. She had tried to give it back to Roger. But he had refused to accept it. He had said he would like her lo keep il. As though she 'would need anything for remembrance! She started lo pin il to her lapel again, over her heart, as Roger had. But no, she could not bear to do that. She opened her purse and put the pin out of sight. Jackie's arm, holding her back. A strange Beryl indeed, (lushed, hatless, hair wind-blown, dark eyes bright. "Why did you want to slop me?" Jackie asked. Had something happened to Iloger? Had he taken a turn for Ihe worse? But no, she had lefl him only a short while ago. "You can't slop me, Beryl. Please!" Jackie tried lo pull away. People were pushing past, .getting on the train; in a minute or two would pull out again. "I had to stop you," Beryl said .he still spoke wilh difficulty, hoi n-eatli coming in short gasps You can't go, Jackie. Not until -ou listen to me." "Alt aboard! All aboard!" * * * •THAT was the last call. All of the passengers had boarded the rain. If Jackie were (o get on il ilie could not wait another second. She tried once more to pull away. l)eryl x only clung to her niore MIF, litlle station took on an air ' of importance, a (lurry of ex- cilemenl. Wilhin a few minutes now (lie noon train would come thundering in. The platform would .quiver, the building shake; people press forward, porters would scurry by, Ihe slnliomnas- Icr would sing out his rhythmic chaiil, "All aboard, all aboard Easlbound train, slopping al Bellcfonte, Lewisburg, llnrrisburg , . . All aboard. . . ." It could not come too soon foi Jackie. She still fcjl impelled to flee; she slill wanted to run away and keep on running, if only i were possible, as far as she could firmly. "No, no, Jackie must listen to me you to what I've got to say. Then if you slill wanl to go. . . ." But it would be loo late then. II was too late now. The train was beginning to puff and steam, the big wheels lo turn, slowly, laboriously. The platform quivered beneath their feet; <i roaring filled their cars. The train was gone. "You shouldn't have stopped me," Jackie said. Why hadn't Beryl let her vun away? AVhy must she make il this much harder. . . . "We must go somewhere so that we can talk." Beryl said. Her old "Yes, I know." Beryl inclined icr dark head. "He lold me. Roger told me everything you said lo him, Jackie. Thai's why 1 had; ,'• :o come after you, slop you." ! ; "But you shouldn't have! Youj i' should have let me go!" ij j- "No, I think not. I did sny— \ i: asl night—lhat il might be best. 11 I didn't want you to have to know J the tru(h, Jackie. Not until had to." * * t HE fru!Ji . . . whal was Bcry?j talking aboul? Why didn't say what she meant, what it —right out? The truth was Roger loved Beryl, and that F loved him. Talking could — change that—or make il any dif-,4 ferent. [ 1 Perhaps Jaclcic sill] would have'/ ,o put on an act—moke believe.-5 'I'm afraid you don'l understand,..' Beryl," Jackie said. "I suppose-; itogcr told you I broke our en- i gagemenl. Bui whal you don'tl know is lhal it never was a real'* engagement. It was only a sort.of | trial flight." | Beryl said, almost impatiently,? "Yes, I know. Roger told me 3 about that, too." J "Ho seems lo have tohl youj! everything," .lackie said. "I still! don't sec whal you mean by 'IhtJ^i truth-' I slill don'l see why youfij stopped me, what there is to talk; \. "I think Hint you should know everything," Beryl said. "B.cfore you break your engagement. The truth, that 1 spoke of—from which I hoped to spare you, Jackie—is lhal Roger may never walk again.''
