B«th Greek and American officiate still were baffled at the thou»nd s of gift packages con- an estimated 10.030 to 160,pounds of meat sent here in the last 'six nnonths from Greece, and rumors of a "racket" still circulated. ;.

But it's CA^I was all for my breaking the news to Flora, the sooner the better. Why not take Amy with ne? If anyone could handle Flora, It was Amy. This was an excellent suggestion. I got Amy on the phone. We met on the seat under our big apple tree, and 1 told Amy at length all about my two meetings with Gloria's grandmother and tbiiift .Sam positively refused to go hoaie until Flora had got over the first shock. , .Amy was sorry, but not unduly distressed. She said that Mrs. Fin- nenrr was bound to see Gloria Louise sooner or later, and as the <£l£iL was growing to look more '-••£ more like her father, her grandmother was cerlaiii to acknowledge .her - ultimately and waul to see her occasionally. "But how about the adoption?" I Mked. "Mrs. Finneran will be certain to try to block it." - .'"*l've never approved of the adoption," "Amy said calmly. "After • all, Gloria is not Sam's chUd, and he never really wanletl to wJppt lier. Bob Finneran was a Bice boy, and he died bravely. Gloria must be told about him.

"Flora ^doesn't seem to get her strength back, and you know how wrapped up she is in Glwia Louise. This will be a terrific shock." : "A shock is what Flora needs,' Amy said firmly. "She doesn't ge b«r strength back .because she doesn't want to get it back. Flora spends far too. much lime in bed with imaginary aches and pains Of course it's her defense agains SdBB, against all the disappoint nt first took our news very badly. She sobbed noisily, she cried out that she haled Mrs. Finneran; Mrs. Finneran was cruel asid hard, and never, never, never should her darling Gloria spend a minute alone \vilh Ihc woman. She said she was born to Irouble, Ihal it was all Sam's fault If Sam had only lislencd to her and adopted Gloria years ago, when they were first married, ns she wanted him to, Mrs. Finneran would be powerless to touch hdr darling IHUc girl. Now heaven alone knew what the crav.y old harpy might do. Flora would never again have i\ moment's peace. ... If only Sam had lislened to her! I had said my say, so I sal in a corner and held my tongue. Amy lislened unlit Flora had run down and llien handed her Ihe smelling plls, brought a washcloth and Wiped her face, made her drink ome weak brandy and water. Flora was quieter, Amy sal down by Ihc bed. Without raising icr voice, she calmly and dispassionately skinned Flora alive. She said lo Flora all llial she had said to me and a. great deal more. She Lpld'Flo'rti'.shc '.was silly "nnd ill- tfemperod; siio grabbed everything and gave nothing. Flora cried and proleslcd, bul Amy \vcnl on. She said it was already town talk thai Sam was fed up. What would Flora do if Sam walked oul on her or put her and Gloria oul of Ihe hoiise? . . . "I'll leave you to think over what I've said," Amy finished up with asperity. "Then sclo.scd. the dispute wa.s not Head Courier News Want, Ads. I hope you'll gel up and wash your face and take off that dressing- gown and get dressed and go downstairs and lake a look around.

And you might sec tp it .Ihal when Sam comes home he. gets a decent dinner, lie told Nelson the cook gave him Ihc same Ihings lo eat night after night." VV^IIEN I got home, Sum Icle•* plumed lo ask how Flora had taken the bad news. Very well, I lokl him; I Ihought Amy IKK! convinced her that it was all for the best. 1 went over Amy's arguments. . "You mean Flora actually agreed?" Sam fiskccl. "Didn't she cry or have hyslcvics or anything?" "Oh, we lincl a few fireworks at first, but not for long. Flora is out on the front porch this minute wilh Theodora and Gloria. You'll belter be hurrying home. Your three women—-no, I believe I sec a bnby carriage behind Flora— your four women are all dressed up and waiting for you. They look pretty as strawberries nnd cream." Sam whistled, said he'd be goll- darncd, added ;\ husky thank you, and hung up. Fifteen minutes later I saw him drive in the back, leave his car and come rgund lo (he front porch. Flora, her youngest in her avms, rose lo meet him. She :rl Sam Ihe baby and put hnr arms aronn<! his neck. Thec-Jlura and Gloria clung lo his legs, clamoring for altenlion. They were all dainty 'white dresses. 11 made a charming domestic scene. Sam never did legally adopt Gloria Louise. Gloria was told lhat her real falher was dead, but that Daddy loved her just as much as he loved Theodora and the baby. Once a week she was taken by Ihe nurse and left for an hour or Iwo with her Grandmother Finneran. Gloria was pnchanlcd. Binny, Ihc little while Spitz dog, was now hers. The new grandmother was her slave. She never returned home without a lale of wild orgies of ice cream and candy and cream puffs and chocolate cake in which she and Granny had indulged, and usually she would be carrying a. new doll, :\ new bunny rabbit, or perhaps a dainty liltle dress Mrs. Finneran had made.
