XXV J DID not answer.' Curiously my mind lea the i »I a n d and 1 thought of one September when Papa took us to Memphis to the Mid-Soulh Fair. We were walk- Ing toward the .Peabody Hotel r. Papa between Wallace and William, ana I behind the three I stopped at a small street named November 6. I thought it was the oddest street name J had ever heard, and t stood gazing at the sign, wondering how the name had ever come to be. I saw Papa «nd William and Wallace were leay- ing me. t began to run to catch them, reeling that 1 would never know why that street had such a name. "Ts the patrol moving thli way? 1 1 saad. . v "I.don't know. TV* got my eyes closed. "We could get | n the raft and shove oft," 1 said. "They'd think Ihe Germans got us. Wouldn't •that be funny?" | "I could think of things funnier —give me the limp and a different place." "You got a white handkerchief? I've thought of that, too," he said. "Anything on Wce-willie? "There's nothing. They're not moving this way, are they?" "I don't think that'j a patrol: it's an 83 crew. They're setting up an 88 on that point" "I'll bet Iriey know everything about this little maneuver." "Yeah," he said, "the number of every boat and the middle name of every skipper." "You think we ought to signal Kitty-Hawk? 1 * •'Reckon they could pick us up?" "Ttiey must be somewhere close' it's nearly 11:30." "The commander said not to break silence before » quarter "That's so too,** i "Get your friend ready." on the beich, leaning .gainst the rock, our rifles ready. There is a time when the mint absorbs nothing, like a weakeneo. stomach: and there is a time when ie makes toy soldiers out of men wi[h guns. "Any last words you want to say?" I'No. But I ought to get something straight wilh you." 1 whispered. "All that mess about me being rich was a big lie. My daddy is on the section crew for the railroad." £JERT tapped my arm. -Don't worry. My old man's got enough left to get us out He's a member of the Petoil Club In Dallas—you havt to have a million to join." "What are they doing?" I raid. "Standing up there looking" •This rock is cold." "How many men in an 88 crew?" "How would I know? 1 could tell you a lot more about thermodynamics or the color of Becky Sharp's eyes," "Listen!" Something cam>- faintly over the walkie-talkie. I turned the volume. "Kitty-Hawk to izzzzz over zizzzz X-ray . , . Charlie zzzziz Item . . ." "It's not for us. tt's the commander talking to the Army." "Not loo loud. 'That carries like sin." He kept his binoculars trained toward the Germans. "Kitty-Hawk calling Piper Cub . . . Kitty-Hazzzzz calling Piper- Cub . . .zzzzzz ..." "They're calling us nowl" "Keep U low." I turned the switch to transmitting. "Piper-Cub . . . Pi per-Cub . . over .. ..* The click, when I switched to receiving, was like flre. "Baker ... zzzzz . . , nine . . . Charlie . . Oboe . . . Fon . . . zzzzzz . . . Fox .. nine ..." Sttt tuM wUrM and a* ttw switch. 1 think they heard something. Did you get all of it?" "No. The Army would do something in nine 'minutes." He stood up slowly, waving me to keep my head low. then aiming his binoculars. I pushed against the rock as if to unearth it Slowly I sank to my knee* ar.d waited the barrel of my rifle pressing igainst my Jaw. I thought of Mama uid all the Wade blood 1 was supposed to have in me. "Now see if you can get Kitty- Hawk." Bert whispered. "Two 88's up there now." * "Two?" "Yes, two.- I switched to transmitting. "Kit- ly-Hawk . . . this is Piper-Cub Kitty-Hawk Finally I caught Blackwell's voice: "The commander says where ire you . . be'* going to court- martial you . . ." Bert had crouched down beside me to 11 s I e n. He grabbed the switch and said, "You ell that stone-faced . . .» 'J'HEN we. heard the commander's voice: ". . . u you're still on that island get your tails of! and head for Larcone . . th« Army is going to blast it . . .* Bert grabbed up the walkie- alkie and threw it toward the aft, but it kept buzzing; and above he buzzing he was half crying, alt whispering. "The snafued so- nd-so's . ." As we stepped Into he water there was a blast on the idge above us. "They heard us,' I said. "That's not an 88. That's Army rail from l-arcone." Another shell landed a few yards bove the rock where we had tood; we heard fragments fatlinn n the water. Our oars worked fu- iously; the raft was free. I had a frong urge to stand up and yell, We're going lo make it!" I think partially stood, because I remem- cr falling forward Instead of ackward—not actually falling but owly sinking onto my face. Then I felt Bert carrying KM. t seemed like miles and miles and said, "Am 1 carrying you?" He said. "No. I think I'm carry- ng you. Why?" "Because I'm so tired," ] »aid. (I. B* v I ' OJ SCUK.
