Barry that her answer was no. that she loved someone else. Gaynel would rather have cut oft her right hand than hurt him so. She realized, with a little guilty qualm, that she had not told Fritz how much she owed Barry. In actual cash, besides in so many intangible ways. She had a suspicion that Fritz would not relish the idea of her being in debt to Barry for Pat's illness; he would think she should have managed to meet those obligation! in .some other manner, ac perhapi she should, though she did not see just what other mean: she could hive taken. She was paying Barry back. She must tell him about Fritz at the first opportunity. Th« opportunity to present itself was when Barry drove her to Ann Arbor to the football game between Michigan and Ohio State —always the most exciting and hardest-fought battle of Ihe season Gaynel sported two big yellow chrysanthemums—from Barry, ol course; Barry never forgot flowers. Her cheeks were whipped to i most becoming flush from th* wind. It was impossible not to (eel terribly happy and light-hearted, though she knew this was the day when she must t*U Barry about Fritz. Time enough after the game was over, when the exaltation ol victory, or the acceptance of well- braved defeat, would twilight this radiance to a seller mood. Yes, she would tell Barry on the way home. "JJY Ihe way," Barry broke the silence, "1 found out about Denny's new heart-throb-as matter of fact I met the lady. Made a point to do so. You'll be pleased to hear that she is really a most acceptable person. Exceptional, might be a better term." "I'm not sure whether I should be pleased or not," Gaynel considered. "It all depends, I guess, on what you mean by exceptional." "Madeline Day, this particular lady s name, would be a lady under any circumstances." "Even in a divorce court— twice?" She supposed she was being catty; but she believed she would have preferred someone not quite so sure of herself for Denny as this lady sounded. Barry said, "I found out about that, loo. The first wasn't a divorce; her husband died. The second was most unfortunate; Clinton Day was a rascal. No one could-blame t woman for being unable to live with him." Gaynel said, "I'm not blaming anyone. Unless Denny really loses his head. Which he shows every sign of doing at present I never knew him to remain faithful to one love sw long. And he's actually sticking to his new job with surprising dogged ness—for him." 'You should be pleased with that, at least. You remember 1 promised I wouldn't place Denny in this job until he had given his word to stick. I felt sure all he needed was the proper incentive." "I know. I am pleased he's making good. Did you know he got a rais« last week? But I'm not sure that 1 consider Mrs. Day th* proper incentive.' Certainly I wouldn't b* pleased if Denny go* IH into his handsome head that he'd like to be her third matrimonial experiment." Denny might not be any too pleased when he learned that she was -going to marry Fritz, instead of Barry. But of course that was different Barry said. "Mrs. Day may have something to say about that. 1 think TOU should meet her." "Good heavens, Barry, anyone would think you had been taken i» by this female, too!" Barry smiled. "You know better than that. But really, my dear, 1 think you're borrowing trouble Madeline Day us a food influence for Denny." "I hope you're right," Gaynei said. He usually was. And. as always, just talking it over with him had made her feel better. * • *. 'J'HEY were Hearing Ihe University. Barry turned in toward the bowl. Cars were jammed on all sides In the wide fields thai served is parking loU. "There'll be a nice jam afterwards." Barry observed. "We'd never get out if we'd tried to come closer. May take an hour or so at that." Gaynel said all of that was part of. the fun. The crowd to her was as thrilling as the game. She always experienced a prickle down her spine at the spectacular sight the big bowl presented, the rainbow of colors surrounding that smooth green carpet it enclosed. Their seats were on the 40-yard line in the sixth row. By the time they reached them the players had come out, amidst frantic cheers from each side, to begin a few preliminary formations. The first half was thrilling and its end brought out the bands for their turn at providing a thrill. They spelled out Michigan and then Ohio State; the drum majors were magnificent in pompous dignity, with their antics with their Batons. 'Isn't that Denny down there?" ynel had been employing Barry's field glasses. "Near the 50-yard line. . . . Here, Barry, take a look. No ... wait ... it is Denny, speaking ot the devil—and • that Mrs. Day with him?"
