Morris Slalioners-OITjce Ou(fi((ers Printers Across from City Hall XXIII AiJAHGIE LOU cried'out as Max started carrying her ofl and Ecidie decided, to take a hand. Unable to interfere himself, he delegated the job to Duke. "Get him, fella! Get him!" Duke was only too glad. Me bounded out of the bushes and, before Max knew what was happening, bit his new found enemy very satisfactorily on the leg. Some of the trousers came off in his mouth. Max, suddenly losing interest in his love-life, dropped Margie Lou and turned to meet Duke's second onslaught, but there wasn't any. "Steady, Duke!" Eddie held the dog in place. To Margie Lou, he said: "Are you hurL" "No, Eddie, but I'm glad you're here. You and your dog. Why, he looks like Duke." "He is Duke." '' "Duke is your dog, Eddie?" "Yes." Max was approaching Duke warily with the intention of kicking the stuffing ou«-of him but all at once something"sbout the conversation going on struck him as peculiar. "My name'ain't Eddie." "Of course it isn'L' I'm talking lo Sgt. Eddie Engstrom." "How're you doing it, by lone distance telephone?" . "He's right beside me, aren't you, Eddie?" "And always will be, Margie Lou." Max looked vainly for Margie Lou's friend. "What is this," he demanded angrily, "a gag?" "Make him go away, Eddie. I don't like him." . '-'Okay, Duke, lei's go!" "You musl be nuts, Baby," declared Max. Then he noticed Duke advancing sliff-legged. There was something Ihcre which he did not see nor understand. Max hesitated only a second. Then lie turned and made the running board of his car in two leaps, slamming the door behind him just in time to keep Duke from gelling another and more important portion of his trousers. Eddie had to laugh as the other man started his car with a jump and headed for parts unknown without waiting to lurn on his headlights. "Even il he did save my life 1 hope he never comes back " said Margie Lou, shivering a little at the recollection of (he situation. 'pHE night which had previously 'seemed darkly sinister suddenly became friendly and beautiful. •"We can sit on the steps for a while," suggested Margie Lou shyly, "that is, if you'd like to, Eddie." "1 sure would," said Eddie. "We can watch the moon." she continued. "It's kind of pretty." "So are you. Margie Lou, prettier than any girl I've ever seen." "I'm not pretty, Eddie, not really, but I guess a girl likes to hear things like that from a man like you even if they aren't so." They sat down' on the rickety stairs, Fxldie one step below Margie Lou who left her right hand carelessly out by itself where he could hold it if he wanted to. "Eddie," she said shyly, "I'm wearing your lucky coin around my neck." "I know," he said and then explained hastily: "It's son of a pond between us. When you wear it there, louching you, we understand each other heller." * "I'll always wear it. Eddie. 11 you're sure you want me to.' "I'm sure," he said, reverently. "When you go back, will you write to me, Eddie?" He wailed a moment In the lazy moonlight before he answered, "I'm not much ol a hand to write letlers. Margie Lou." ''I'll write lo you anyway. What's j'our address?" "I don't Know yet. It'll be a new one someplace. And I'm not sure 1 11 be allowed to get letlers where I'll be." jyjARGIE LOU was rebuffed for a moment but something, maybe the lucky coin, made Her see al leasi clearly enough not to lei a misunderstanding mar the fleeting pleasure which had come lo her henrt. She laughed softly. "Sounds like you expected to be in the guardhouse. If 1 keep your lucky coin 1 ought to give you something of mine to lake with you so you won't forget me." "1 won't ever forgcl you, Margie Lou. I'll never need anything lo remind me." "1 guess you say that to every girl." "No. I never said it to anybody before." "Y ou ' re a '"""I' boy-friend, tddie. You don't care to have a keepsake and you don'l want me to write to you. I'd think you didn't like me only I'm aimost positive you do." She stopped, wondering if she had said the wrong thing. Eddie didn't reach for her hand as he certainly should have done and he made no move to kiss her which she felt he must know would be all right with her. The only thing that told her anything was the expression in his eyes. A man couldn't look al * girl like thai unless he cared— quite a lot. Apparently Eddie wsj terribly -hy. That, Margie Lou thought, will pass and then it will be all the sweeter to have him hold me close. She could wait. Enough to know, as she did know for some reason, lhal Ihcy loved each olher really and for keeps, ft didn'l mailer when Ihe words were spoken or if they were over spoken al all.
