"There you are!" The young man's grin was triumphant, as he shook hands with himself. "Armand now has me down as the old family restrainer. Or will have, if you tell me quickly, before he attacks us again what I'm to call you, Madome." "I'm Gaynel- Teare." "Funny little name," he commented in such a way that she knew, lor him, it held no further significance. "Fits you, though. Gay tears. I'll wager you are a gay person—if you'd let yourself go. ... So that's where you've been keeping yourself!" He achieved a quick transition, as Armand charged down on them, carrying his tray as though it were a shield and sword. "T-tut! While I was risking my hide, spearing sharks in the wilds of Africa. "That's my good man," beaming condescendingly as Armand made a rite at pouring the drink and "T-tut . . . that will do!" as he spurted soda into the cither glass. "That will do nicely, thank you That will be all." Armand did not agree with him, however. He clicked his heels, bowing from his waist, presented the check. The young man raised pained ''• eyebrows. "Pay-enter service, He gave Armand a whee- ch?" dling grin, but as it brought forth no response, "Ah, well ..." He lug in his pockets, frowning houghtfully; then, his look .irighlening, reached across and plucked the crumpled bill from Gaynel's hand. He placed it on Armand's tray, waved him away with a baronial flourish. "Take it away. Keep it. It's all yours, my good man."

"Poor Armand," she said. "He's really a very efficient waiter. Don't you think you rubbed it in a bil thick?" "Armand's thickness must excel the rhino's," the young man returned. "What about my sensitive nature? Practically being evicted on my ear. Hut," he leaned on elbows to give her the benefit of his full regard, "you have me wrong. Waiters are my boon buddies. Did anyone ever you," he added abruptly, no nose for lell ^ _ "what big eyes you have? But of course they have." He shook his head. "I see I must find another method of approach."

She shook her head in imitation of him. "I might have known," she said. He made a face. "Meaning that you subscribe to the well-worn legend that all newspaper men are habitual drunks and no-accounts. That they have been endowed with only one ambition — lo do The Great American Epic. That Uiey are perpetual borrowers, lousy fabricators, enemies of widows and orphans ..." "I don't!" Gaynel was slightly indignant. "Though I do think they've been allotted their full share of brass." "I deserved that," he said, taking it with a grin. His glance sharpened, as though he felt her gibe had over-lapped the personal. "But give me a chance ... I'm more often temperate than inebriated; I pay the butcher and the baker; I have news. I wouldn't write a book, if I got paid for it." He fished in his pocket again, handed her another card engraved with the name of large newspaper chain. "I'm in 'Yet beginning* an always the hand comer." eat* You admit a beginning, then!" He thrust out his chest, wagged his head. "Don't get ruffed!" He put up a hand in protest. "You're my left- . even prettier when you color up like that. And to think it's the kind that docsn'l come off! Shades of my Great-aunt Sadie Shackes." "By the way." he said, after he had taken a healthy swallow from his glass, "I can present creden- "Why, I'm in advertising, too!" she told him. "Connected with it, at least" "You are?"Frederick Fitr.roy Freyman," she read. "But that's fantastic! "Phenomenal," he corrected gravely. "But remember I gave you permission to call me Fritz. Anrl now that we're properly introduced, are you in love with th« lug?" Neat habit," Fritz corrected, reaching across to give her hand an approving pat. "Keep it up, since the other guy's loss is my winnings. But as 1 tried to tell you before — before 1 was jo rudely interrupted by the management—I wouldn't waste time on a fellow so unreliable, whoever he may be." • • • CHE said, "1 ihink I've passed ^ the advice-to-the-1 o v e 1 o r n stage, thank you. And I assure you I never waste time on anybody." She would have enjoyed seeing this young man's expression, were she to tell him the man he thought she was wasting time on. Barry Bainbridgc was a name known the world over. The name of one of the mnlor kings in this amazing Motor City. "Thank you!" Frilz placed a hand over his heart, inclined his head. "That compliments yours truly. Are you going to marry him?" u Why, I ... I don't know," She- should have been angry at such preposterousness. But Ihis was. a question she had put olt asking herself. "Well, if you'll listen to me again, you'd better not. He doesn't deserve such a break. You deserve something far" better." "Thank you," Gaynel said sweetly. "Imagine taking such an interest in my welfare." She had waited too long for Barry. The more she thought al it, the more certain she was there had been some misunderstanding. But H was his fault he had not made it more definite. Was Barry getting to the point, lately, where h« took her a bit too much for granted? That was one of the questions sh.e had been wanting to take time out to put to herself. If so this would be as good a way *s any to even that score.
