Bessie hdd gone for Fritz in a big way. Barry had just said that he had liked him, too. Gaynel repealed, "How well?" somewhat absent-mindedly. She was thinking how festive Washington Boulevard Looked. Its little shops were so chic, its well- dressed pedestrians leisurely enjoying the tonic of spring air and sun, its curbs flanked with Long, low cars that were the tast word in beauty. Nowhere else in the world did one s« such an impressive parade of cars. ""Yes, how well?" Barry said again. He was a lean young man, dark, polished, perfectly groomed;. He had that air of independence, inherited from a long line of blue- blooded ancestors and good breeding, that women admire, since it challenges their vanity. He was a sophisticate; but a charmJng and courteous one. He was innately a gentleman, so that it would have taken more than millions to have turned his head. GayneJ had known him since childhood — the Bainbridges 1 enormous estates joined the now neglected and overgrown grounds of the big house — therefore if he took her a bit for granted the fault was not altogether his. * • • C.TE »aid, "I don't mean how long." implying that be realized time did Dot control such is- Gaynel?*' turned her head from the windows.

We are influenced and molded from every contact we make, don't you think.? Especially by pleasant folks, "Oh," she added, seeing that Barry really was concerned, and to lease a bit — Barry was such a conventional creature beneath his veneer; "I know Frit?, is perfectly okay, if that's what you mean. His people may not b* in any social register, but they're good stock. Solid Dutch Pennsylvanians, Pioneers. Fritz told me his great- grandfather came West with Daniel Boonc, as far as the Kentucky River, but that, unlike Boone, he didn't make a getaway from the Redskins, but was scalped, or hung for a horse-thief in attempting a break, or some such heroic ending." "Do y 011 think that's quite fair? You know I'm not interested in Freyman's family-tree. I'm only interested in that influence you spoke of so far as it concerns you. And in how much you are interested in him." nice of you," Gaynel "Everyone seems lo Uinly I didn't mean to busy-body. I only thought I held a minor claim. Unless the prerogative ol Ticndship of long standing—and ue—doesn't mean B thing." Gaynel reached over to lay a hand in his. "You know better than that, Barry. You've a perfect right to be concerned as lo rny friends, though 1 do think I ought to be able to take care of myself, il I'm ever going to—and make my own decisions, f "But I wasn't fair," she added, withdrawing her hand trom Barry's clasp thai had tightened with whal seemed uncalled for significance. Surely Barry wasn't going sentimental on her—did she wanl him lo, or didn't she? Whichever it mighl be. this was hardly the time or the spot- She crushed oui her cigaret, "Isn't there someplace we can go where we can talk? 11 she asked. "I want lo claim thai prerogative now.

'You look especially pretty today, Gaynel. That new bonnet is so absurdly fashionable, and alluringly becoming. But then." his eyes smiled into hers, "you always look nice, my dear.
