He had gone for supper as ordered but now he was definitely free for the evening. Joe had decided lo stay at the yards for a while. He was fascinated by Ihe business of putting barges together like pre-fab- ricnieH houses. Eddie was not so interested. Besides he wanted to do a liille plain and fancy worrying. Being separated from the object of his affections by the barrier of death was trouble enough. Besides that he had a rival who was able to do everything which Ed die himself cou Id not- A nd whose intentions were certainly not nnrlicularly honorable, if one were to believe Max's own boastful statements. Eddie whistled Duke to heel *nd Parted to walk back to town. ,H w*s a long trek but Eddie thought better on his feet and besides it would be a treat to Duke. Eddie pretended that he didn't know where he was going but he didn't fool -anyone, even himself, certainly not Duke who. after this long ramble, led the way unerringly to Margie Lou's house. In, spite of having killed all the time possible on the trip it was still too early for Margie Lou to be through work. She wouldn't be home until after midnight on this run which was an emergency half-time shift scheduled merely to lake care of the peak night traffic load, patrons of places of amusement downtown and Ihe graveyard shift going on and the swing shift coming oft* out at the boatworks. There was a dim light in- the /ronl roam upstairs, where Margie Lou's Aunt Ellen slept. Eddie sat down on the steps that led to the upstairs apartment, to wait until Margie Lou came home. He had the naive idea that he could warn her some way against the ruthless woojn& of Max LengeL Duke investigated all the fence posts lor a few rods in both directions and then settled down at Eddie's leet. And went to sleep. It was a long time befor* anything happened. When something did occur it was not all what Eddie expected. He heard a sharp cry and then a son of muffled thud as if some- down on his knees and laid his ear over Aunt Ellen's heart. Alter a moment he said, "Very little heart trouble but considerable bourbon trouble." He spied a bottle on the stand beside the bed. Getting to his feet he sniffed at the bottle and picked up some paper that had obviously been around the bottle. "Urn. 'Heart medicine with the compliments of Max. Will send more when tins is gone.' Max must b* a friend of the old lady's." "J guess so." Eddie didn't want to tell him the truth. "We ought to get her back into bed somehow/' "Why? On a hot night like this she won't catch\cold on the floor. Besides we can't lift her anyway. I don't know what relation she is to you, Sergeant, but there's nothing to worry about even if it's your mother. She's just tighAer'n a boiled owl, that's all. 1 * Eddie had 1o be content wfth that.

Both sounds came from upstairs. There was no difficulty nbout hearing, with the door and all the screened windows open. Eddie though! (hat the .situation warranted intcr/erence. He went up and in, followed as far as the screen door by Duke who couldn't get HI, as Eddie could, unless It was opened. This annoyed Duke considerably. r\N the floor lay Aunt Ellen, a rather monstrous hunk of meat. She was breathing heavily and the lids o/ her eyes were closed. Eddie could barely have lifted ner if he had been functioning on the same plane as Aunt Ellen. As it was ht could only gaze compassionately at the motionless butX of the huge woman. "I wonder," he said, "if she's dying. -I wish I «rtild yet » doctor here someway." "If you want a physician's opinion, Sergeant," said the Medical Corps Captain who quite naturally turned up at that moment "1 can assure you that the lady is not dying." "She's got heart trouble," Eddie told him. The middle-aged captain took his leave. ATARGIE LOU came home In a 1TJ little while. She had considerable trouble getting in the front door without also admitting Diike who thought his duty to Eddie demanded his presence inside. Eddie told him to shut up and lie down, But Margie I^ou didn't notice that. Finding her Aunt EHen on the door did not upset Margie Lou so much as Eddie had feared that H might. Getting her back into bed, however, was something else again and she never would have been able to rio it »( Max L-engeJ had not arrived to help. Max regarded Aunt Ellen's* insensible condition with ill-concealed satisfaction. "She'll sleep like a baby for hours. You and me can have as much lime as we want all to ourselves." i Margie Lou asked Max Vo wait outride where she promised to join him soon. Eddie, in HE neat a dilemma as a frustrated swain could possibly find himself, slaved on in the house. He couldn't lei her go out with Max. Even if he wasn't in love with her it was his duty io protect an.r innocent girl from an avowec wolf. (T. Re Continued) SOME OAV, HEN WE BUY .
