T^HE girte at the shop gave a shower for Jenny. Everyone seemed anxious to do anything they could to please her. She had a happy (acuity of making friends easily. Already she knew every single family in the trailer camp And Tod knew scarcely any ol them except the Hansens. It might be all right to chum around with people like that. Tod thought, if you had never known the other kind. But-once you' 1 cultivated a taste for champagne it was a bit hard to slick to nothing but beer. Of course there was always Rick, one of the champagne crowd, you might say. H< did things in a broad, handsomi way. Once, for instance, he brough Jenny a dozen long-stemmed roses in a white box tied with ribbon because she had invited him* to dinner; Rick invited the two of them tc drive home with him to Center vi He, 50 miles south, to spen< Christmas with him and hi mother. Tod thought it a gran idea, but Jenny demurred on th sentimental grounds that the should spend their first Christina alone together. Jenny had *. quee sentimental streak in her, To thought. For instance, the sma blue powder box that Rick ha left for her beneath the tre seemed to mean more to her tha he expensive robe he himself had ought her. Maybe it was because powder box played "Rockabye aby-7- And all Jenny could seem o think about was the baby, Jenny found herself depending >n Rick in a lot of ways. Sensing er moods, he catered to them, hich Tod never tried to do. In anuary there was an especially eavy snowfall, and Jenny men- ioned something about what fun • r must have been in the old days a go sleigh-riding. The next day :iere was a wild ringing of bells rid the sound of horses' hoofs .nd there was Rick with an ok leigh he'd rented from some armer. He took Jenny and Toe and the Hansens for a hilarious ide. * • • X^D, watching the way Rick's eyes clung to Jenny's (ace mew he ought to feel jealous, bu le didn't somehow. All he felt wa: a vague restlessness. Jenny was happy these days and had turned thoroughly domes :ic. She met with the weekly v hoine economics club oi the .camp,, discuss husbands, babies, new recipes and'trailer camp "gossip February was a miserabl month, bitterly cold and wet. Toe and Jenny kept pretty well to th trailer. Tod, wading snow acros the campus to go to his classes or to the grocery for Jenny, triec hard not to grumble about thei lack of a car, but he felt sulle about it_ He -was still worrie about their financial situation. Ma kepi troubling him with he affairs too. Joe never wrote I her; she didn't even know whcr he was; and she. was- havin trouble with Harriet. She was a ways ;phoning Tod and wantin him to come over. One particular ly miserable night in March sh insisted that he come across tow to her apartment. She was a alone. Harriet had left for gooc "But Ma/* Tod explained pa tiently, "I can't very well com •nny's all alone and what if she iould get sick while I was gcmcV" "Yes, of course, she comes first," a bcK:in to weep. Her sobs made LUe hiccxipy " noises in the re- eiver of the phone. "1 don't have nyone that cares anything Rboul is nov,'," The desperate note in words frightened him. He felt hat he had .better go. Jenny wanted to point out lhal e was her only/refuge also. But ke Ma he was touchy" about the niest hint of criticism. She let im go. After all. 1 If she needed clp she could rouse the Hansens. .nd anyway, the baby wasn't due or another week. "JUT the wildness 'oi the night and the sense of being alone ;ave Jenny an uneasy feeling.

The hour that ensued was ike a nightmare. She tried to keep calm by getting her overnight case ready In take to the hospital. Tod said he would hoi stay long. She did not dare venture but oi the trailer because the ground was covered with ice and the wind was blowing the sleet in » steady drumming against the trailer now. She grew no Jonger aware of time, only the dark waves of pain that caught her in their relentless grip over and over again." She was crying. • Then came a knock at the door. She called,-out, as the blackness caught her relentlessly again. All at once she was.aware of Rick's calm, presence, his handi putting; her arms into her coat, 1 his arms about her as he carried her to his car, *His overcoat was rough against her face.
