He grabbed the band in a cunning wrestler's hold and bent it down in a tense curve of agony. "They lifted the little man and threw him through the door. His bead cracked against the post a'ml they lifted him again—sent him spinning down the stair. 1 !."

Bob rushed forward, grabbing Steve's half-raised arm. "Good Lord, Steve! Hang onto yourself! Toby didn't mean anything." Slowly Lynch got to his feet, parlly angered and partly frightened. "What's the idea, Steve? Looks to me as if three fellows ought to be able to Ret into a discussion without a brawl." "I didn't mind your generalities," mentioned Sieve icily. "But when you applied Ibein to Judith and me, you were going a litllc too far." "I didn't mean anything," said Toby, still rubbing his cheek. Bob looked at Steve Fowler. ' There you are. Toby's apologized for a loose tongue. Looks to me like you'd belter apologize for a loose temper, Steve." There was a moment of tense : ilencc; and then, slowly, Steve raid, "All right.

"I'm not starting anything, Steve. I've a right to defend my position, haven't I?" Bent grinned up at the other. "Even at the risk of a poke in the nose?" Despite himself, Steve had lo smile. "I guess my nerves have been jittery lately. Go ahead, Bob." "If a man can't support a girl on his own earnings—and the girl has a job ot her own—(hen I think it's okay for them lo marry, if it happens to be agreeable lo both ot them."

They were like small boys caught in suspicious proximity lo the jam closet. Bui if Judilh and Virginia detected anything amiss, they gave no sign of it. The next moment Uic five were altacking the sandwiches with enthusiasm—while Judith's percolator gurgled merrily in the kitchenet. Nevertheless, the ghost of a quarrel hung over the modest apartment, and the parly soon sagged. Ten o'clock struck itself oft on Judith's little clock—and then 11. Once or twice Virginia looked significantly at Judilh, but Steve slayed on. It began to look as if he. were quite prepared to outwoit Judith's protectors. "Well . . ." Virginia stifled a yawn. "I've work lo do tomorrow. 1 don't know about Ihe rest of you." Toby Lynch got up. "That goes for me, too." He turned to Judith. 'I've had "Thank fine time." the Bents.
