XXVI IT IHSTEN put Carl's letter in the hip'pocket of her slacks and squared herself away to take up her day. "You see," said Carl, "she knows someway that we shall not meet again until she is like us. But she will b« all right. I am certain." They all left the little white house together and walked to the corner. Duke trotted after them.' When the already crowded bus arrived the driver recognized Duke who tried to get on with the others. "Go home, Duke!" she said sharply. , Kirsten smiled at Margie Lou. "You know his name?" "Yes. He's Eddie Engstrom's dog'." Margie Lou got the door shut and started the bus. Eddie stood right behind her but apparently she didn't have the lucky coin with her and couldn't see him. Duke could, however, and fol- "lowed "the bus. He had no intention of letting Eddie go adventuring without him. Kirsten wanted to talk about •her husband's friend. "You must iknow Eddie himself.** 'Margie Lou turned her head to get a good look at Kirsten.' One 'look was enough to convince anybody ol Klrsten's unqualified and natural beauty. A \ dismaying thought struck Margie Lou. , "Are you," she asked, "the girl Eddie^ cares so much about?" Kirsten laughed. It was the first thing which had struck her as funny for some time. ."Eddie doesn't care much about any one girl," she salct. "He likes me, 1 think, but it's because I'm married to his best friend. Whatever made you think Eddie was in love with somebody?" "He told me so last night.* "That's strange—almost impossible." "Why?" Kirsten hesitated. "I've just received a letter from my husband Dr. Lindquist CHIROPRACTOR Phone 3170 . 615 Chiekasawba written less than 10 days ago from somewhere In the South Seas and In it he spoke of Eddie's being right there beside him." "But he was here, right beside me In this bus," Margie Lou argued. "He used to drive It before went away." I know." Suddenly Kirsten stifled a scream. "Duke—look outl'i Duke had been running along beside the rear of the bus. Right behind him with intent fury came a battered convertible. All at once Max Jtepped on the gas and his car shot forward, struck Duke »nd threw him against a parked car. Max went on past the bus which came to a stop in the middle "of the block. Margie Lou was about to get out and run back but Kirsten restrained her. Vlt's no use." Neither of them saw Eddie step down to the street beside the open bus door, nor did they hear him whistle. Duke came bounding toward Eddie, his wide tail waving from side to side. When he got there he jumped square into Eddie's arms. Eddie put his cheek against the heavy fur around the dog's neck. It felt good. "Now you can get on the bus, fella, and nobody'll mind," said Duke's god and master as he carried his dog aboard. • • • Q UTS IDE Hie boatworks a large military formation stood at attention. It included sailors, marines, soldiers, air corpsmen and even a few nurses. About a third of. the entire assembly consisted of officers, nothing higher than captain, though. Most of the lieutenants and ensigns stood in the ranks with the enlisted personnel. Eddie and Carl saw their own squad and comprehended why there was such a large force of fighting men In a smal) inland city. "What gives?" Eddie said out of the side'of his mouth as he fell in alongside of Joe College | "A review of somt sort," Jot replied, also sidewise. "Here come* (he C. O." The none too military figure of the middle-aged medical officer whom they already knew took over from (he Marine sergeant who had apparently lined them up. u j • • • •' AT ease!" said the captain. The line slackened » litlld. The captain looked (hem over with a palerrml smile. "I know ai well as you do thai it is slightly irregular, for a medical officer to take charge of combat troops, even casuals like yourselves, However, ihere is nothing very regular about the status of any of us under the conditions in which we now find ourselves. 1 have been assigned to transmit order« of the d«y to unattached military and naval personnel in this area. 'I suppose you men wonder why and how you arrived here this morning. I wouldn't know. I dont even know how I received orders to, But 1 am »war« that there are two things which It is my duty to tell you. "First, we leave at dawn tomorrow. I can't tell you why or where we are going because I don't know myself. But If there is anything that you haven't attended to already you'd better get it washed up In the next 18 hours or so. I doubt If we'll be cominj this way again. "-The other communication I have for you Is a request that you attend the meeting to be held at the boatworks this morning. Your presence, even If no one actually knows you are here, will have i needed influence against a growing tendency among people at home to let down. It isn't necessary* to tell you men that the troubles which are upsetting the world are not only serious, but also far from ended. Each of you met up with a bullet or a shell fragment which is a convincing argument. Make those who have never been shot at also realize that the preliminary parades are over and the fighting is just about to begin. "That's an, men, until reveille tomorrow. Sergeant, take over and dismiss the outfit." <T» Be Continued) Concrete Culvert Til« Slie« ip M 38 |n. Corrugated Metal Culverts Sizes «p u M In.
