"N • body's a.sked me (or a date for almost ever and now I'm all tangled up with two for the same day." She put the lucky coin in her uniform coat pocket. "What do you say. Margie Lou?* Margie LXJU didn't say anything She didn't act as if she had heard Eddie waited and then repeatet the question. Someone signaled for a stop am a lady got off. When they were rolling one* more Margie Lou said, "If you'i really, like to see me later wouli .you mind coming to my house My aunt's sick — I live with her — but we could sit outside on th front steps. Is that okay?" "Sure," Eddi* agreed. "An place that we can talk."- 1 "Why don't you say something? Margie Lou asked a trifle impa tiently. "I can't be away from home for ----- ** She turned he head toward him and stopped sue denly in mid-speech. "Where ar jyou?" "Right herfr," said Eddls. "Where's who? " demau :!ed stout woman in alack;. ''Loo where you're going, driver 4 "But where's that 'sOiti?er wh was standing just in front of you "Margie persisted. "Heck, dearie " answered 1h overstuffed passenger, "I did: Tiotlce if there was a solditv iher What's one soldier when thc-ie's many?" Margie Lou shook her head. " must have got off at the last stop "It he did his slip showed an ch and he was wear in 1 a darn nny hat with purple feathers it." Eddie tumbled to the trouble. ?ake my lucky coin out of yout ocket and hold it in your hand gain. Margie Lou." But Margie Lou paid no atten- on to him She was inclined to e indignant. She muttered, "He as just kidding me." 'My advice is never trust them oldiers. dearie," said the lady. They're all alike, string you along ith hot air and then stand ou up." Eddie was helples* to do any- ling about it- He couldn't think f any way to make Margie'Lou icX up the telephone again "End of the line! All out!" touted Margie Lou. "Watch your tep!" Eddie stood aside, although that was hardly necessary, as the rowded bus emptied itself in front the brilliantly illuminated ea- rance to the boatworks. * • • \VfHEN the last passenger was gone and Margie Lou was about to close the doors Max Len- Rel drove-up alongside in his bat- ered convertible. "Hi. Baby," he said gaily. "I thought I could get out here as soon as your bus did. I wanted to make sure about our date for tonight Is it all hunky-dory?" fluffy dresses myself. It's a date." lie drove off before she could say yes or no. Margie Ixju closed the bus door as Eddie balled out, or maybe a second or two sooner Eddie wa* mad- . He didn'l quite know who he was mad »t but he certainly was fit to be tied. EVERYBODY had to show his or h«r card as well *s the plioto- itlentification button in order to gel past the two watchmen at the gate. All but Eddie. It was a place of considerable activity Old-fashioned arc lights sputtered in front of reflectors high up on poles. A good many women worked in the jobs where it wa? only necessary to know which end of a nail to hit with a hammer and fiow to do it without splattering too much blood from the mashed thumbs. As Eddfe remembered it, there had never been more than a score of employes at the boatworks. Now there were hundreds. Max Lengel, Eddie discovered, was a "set-up man* 1 which gave him sort of a roving commission Margie Lou did not close the door. "I had sort of an engagement — " "Who with?" - "A soldier — he's home on leave/ 1 "Soldiers are a dime a dozen. Don't waste your time on a jerk who's apt to get bumped off before you see him again. I'm to be here right along. Where'll I pick you up?" "You'd have to call at the house." "I get it. Want to pretty yourself up. Don't blame you. I like to inspect and fix machinery all over the yard. He usually made lot of fussy adjustments which took up a lot of time. He also did considerable boisterous kidding with the younger women. His invariable ioke was to warn them not to work so hard or they would be too tired to go riding with him when it was their turn. "Why, Mr. Lengel." said one of the more shapely laborers, "1 don't see how you get the gasoline to ' run around like yon do." "Easy,, if you know the right people like I do. Besides, it don't take much" Max added, a wink. "When there's a pretty girl along I always run out of gas a couple of miles out of town. You can depend on that. But I can usually find some to get home on later. You can depend on Iriat. Sister, I've got cans of gasoline hid over the county," he boosted. "Some of it right here in the yards, where the OFA inspector wovilc never think of looking for it.
