A lood picture of Tod, showing his infectious smile, the reckless look of laughter, in his eves, the fine high forehead topped with a mass of dark curling hair. Tod was so handsome!

There was a long stay in the hospital in Capitol City and then an even longer stay in the East where some sort of an operation waj performed on his back. He was coming home now to Capitol City. The society page of the Gazette had been full of the coming nuptials for weeks. He and Lit were going to be married to 'he tune of considerable fanfare The only hitch was that Liz had eloped with someone else yesterday. Her heart began to pound »i she went up the long steps of the big imestone Union SUtion and through the swinging doors into the vaulted waiting room.
