I Search for a Hero By Thomas Hal Phillips XXXIII jvPA came in first For a few •seconds I thought he was go;to hug rne, but he didn't. He over the couch and took my •' and grinned. Wallace pulled ly shoulder, and William took loft hand. Ihen did you get here?" Papa I little while ago." [ft like old Lazarus," Wallace them sat down. "When i get to be a Bible scholar?" to Wallace. I going to make a preacher," said, "so he won't have I war." take preachers too, don't I'l know," William said. We trying very hard to say ," Papa said, i you mean old?" Wil- * he's grown now. When _ >cs through a war he's Vou feel grown, Don?" looks older than either of iVilliam said. fou look older than us," Wal} said. You got reasons to, huh, Don?" fpa said. Wallace got up, stood with one 3 bent as If his knee was sllfl. "I'm not gonna hold it against you that you didn't send all those themes ... if you'll write me a [good term theme on—well . . ,* "Sit down," William said. -.- "Listen, I'l. bet he could make f.old Culbcrl bawl. You know, Papa, ;the English teacher that always talked about the Armistice and ' the bells ringing all day. We showed him to you." .-'. William said, "Don't write any• thing else for him, Don. If he can't ,ipass from here on out, It's tough. And besides, what does it mailer? iVou'rs not join* le get to Up uy- , NEA S>rrie*. It' thing but the foot-army, brother, and they don't care what you made in Knglish composition." Johnnie Mae called, "I'm tout ready to go milk, now." "All right," Mama said. She had been watching us^arms folded, the way she would sometimes sland and gaze down lh« rows of her garden as if wondering how red tomatoes and green beans could come out of the same earth. )R a while all of us were silent. Wallace made alrnost a ceremony ot silting down. Then Papa said, "How's your knee?" ' "My knee?" I satd. That was the first thing that made me mad: I should have had sense enough to know he* was talking to Wallace, because I knew Wallace had hurt his knee in spring training. Wallace Stood up and pulled up his pants' leg and showed Papa what was pulled. Papa held the knee, probing, feeling of it the way doctor might "Sore?" "A little." "Maybe it'll keep him out of the war," William said. 'Shut up," Papa said. Then maybe it won't," William said. Wallace pushed his pants leg down. "I don't see as you're so all-llred bent on going." "I'm not. But I know when to o,uil. Old man Lambert could gel us into heaven quicker than he could get us into Annapolis or West Point. They do things up there besides play football." "Do they now?" Wallace said, "Maybe he could get Us in, but he Won't. He's Already snid Annapolis was out." "Your Uncle Richard had a lew pieces o( news to tell him this morning," Papa said. "We'll make him do something for you boys or lose, this county." "When did you and Uncle Richard ?ct so strong?" William said. "W«'r« aot, but we'r« oa Vh« •ight side this time; we've lined lip with Burress and Hodges and them. Burress and Richard went see Lambert this morning, to tell him ht had to promise the pent office to Burress's lon-ia-law, a powerline to Rock Branch, some other things, and lake care of you boys. He's gonna come through or we'll take his money and spend it for Nulby." Papa began to grin. William shook his head. "You can't go by the way things sound." "He's saying that. Papa," Wallace said, "because they's an old tomcat down'nt school lhat gel* off behind Ihe dormitory and cries like a baby." Wallace looked at me. "You get any medals, top- water?" "Sure, lots of medals." "Tell us how you got to b« a Nero. I'll write a theme for old Culbert and call it 'How My Brother Became a Hero.' I'll make him weep. You just mention the war and he'll bust out—he went in 1917. It's the bells that gets him, though. Tell us how it was." • • • "T WAS on this Island, see? Another signalman and I» We had to stand there and flash a light every few seconds so our LCI could see how to lead a convoy into the beach. It was dark. Along comes this German bomber —big thing. Biggest thing the Germans have got; It was flying low. I said to the other signalman, 'It's going to get that whole convoy if we don't do something.' He said, 'Il's all up to you, buddy, I'm busy with this light.' I fired twice wilh Ihe rifle and it jammed.' Was nothing left to do but use a grenade. I let go and hit the pilot righl In Ihe face. He spppp- zzzzz off into the sea and blew .." "Why don't you tell us the truth?" Wallace said. "Did you gel any medals?'! "He got shot," Papa said. "Bv- jrybody that gels shol gels medals, don't ^Jliey, Don? 11 they don't, we'll make Lambert get you one." "Something's burning," Willia n said. "Goodness!" Mama said. "It's the chicken."
