PINKNXM'S WHS Misunderstanding By AL MARTIN (This alary \vu» \vri((pn to nhow the lo.vulity anil love of a wife, that .. - * men of the Army to face life umlef any handicap.) It was a hot Stitimhty afternoon hi HaktU'slteUl. Many people with siunmer clofhi's won* seen down town Nhopping, probjibly buying clothes, groceries, and sundries for their families. Muiiy working people who could not go down town usually patronized the *'Vrtl- ley's Store," a general stove located across the tracks, which was very neat in appearance and almost all you asked for they had. AVlmt was different about this particular store than any other stove in Bakerstield was that when the customers entered this EH* - h ri - h *'•'- ;•:•.-, AL MARTIN store they noticed all the time a % vonn# jnan around his envly thirties sitiinj; all the time with a hook in his hands reading and KmokitTg cigarettes endlessly. K very one that Ijought supplies there conlil tell or thought that this youns man, tho owner of the store, was very mean, cruel, and lazy for lie did nothing wnt behind the counter and tell his wife what had to be done. She would wait on the trade, she packed the groceries and swept the place and would even take care of all the hard nnd soft work, She looked worn out and everybody resented this man for making his wife a slave, feiuee he did not hire anyone else to help her. Although his wife was very beautiful and young and could enjoy her life move, she could not do so. She was very devoted to her husband, and she never seemed to complain or worry. On this particular hot Huturday » working mini entered the fetore to buy He had* heard of the owner being cranky and that he took ad vantage of bis wife and making her even do the hook work late into the night. This working man. who had just gone in to trade, bad four little children with him, one of them a crippled girl, whom he was pushing in a wheel chair. Naturally, he was in a hurry to be waited on so that he could go home immediately. As it so happened, the owner's wife had goue to lunch and she had not returned. He, the owner, could not wait on him. Meanwhile, the customer, somewhat upset, spoke,as follows: Customer (to the owner) "Will you wait on me? I am in a hurry." Owner replies (to the customer) "I am sorry that I cannot wait on you right away but my wife will be here any minute and she will take care of you. She went out for lunch/' Customer (to the owner) "What is wrong with you? Why don't you lake care of the customers? I have a sick little girl and I work hnrd and I still manage to help my wife do house chores. I have heard of you and everybody knows that you are very inconsiderate and idle and that you work your wife to death. Why, men like you should be in tlie army. Get up and fight." Owner (to the customer) "I really woujd like to wait on yon but, as you see, I was discharged from the army last year and I sit here behind the counter because I do not want anyone to see my legless body. Would you like to see it? But somehow I do nofc like to have everybody see my legless body. I do not like pity from anyone and the reason I do not hire anybody is because my wife is so true nn d faithful. She is* helping me to buy artificial legs so that 1 can walk again. My reading and my smoking draws me away from everybody and I» can be myself again when nobody disturbs me and I can forget my condition. I lost my legs in the war but no one knows about it only myself. It was my fate." Tlie customer suddenly recognized the owner of the store. He had seen a picture of him in many newspapers some time before, advertised as the great "Bolero Dancer," and perhaps his pretty wife was his dancing partner. All these things came to his mind . . . Suddenly, he did not speak any more . . . He turned his buck and he drew his children out of the store. Tears blurred his eyes. Then, without looking back, he mumbled silently and brokenly to himself* "A Slight Misunderstanding."
