But this time was different. She hnd no excuse. This time the caller announc^d'hersclf. at once. ~"Rulh;" .- Aliss Brady shouted. "Open up!" • The door was locked. She'd locked it when April went down to dinner at 1 o T clock. Now she turned the key with a muttered apology. 'XTm sorry, Miss Brady. I "was asleep," Miss Brady strolled about the room, unobtrusively taking in the red-rimmed eyes, the strained, tight features. Downright ugly, she noted'. Homesick. Or maybe just sick. Or maybe Angel's right, the fool girl could be frightened about something. "Ruth," she said mildly, "we missed you at dinner. You mustn't skip meals, ^you know. And Miss Small is worried about you. She thinks you 'rtecd building up." "I had coffee, April brought me coffee, that was all I wanted." "Not enough. .Now comb your hair and wash your face like a good girl and come on down with me.

'I don't think I—" 'You must," Miss Ri-acly said firmly. "Von needn't slay long but you really must make an appearance. Unwritten law, Mrs. Marshall-Gill's. Everybody shows up or else." Everybody, more than 70 people. She could sit in a c-nrnov, off to herself, safe for n lillle while because of more than 70 witnesses. Sate for the rest of her life if she could prove she u'.is mistaken. If she could study that face again, if she could listen io the voice, it she could prove lo herself that she wns wrong. "Will you wail for me while 1 change my dress?" she asked. Good heavens, Miss Brady marveled silenUy, vain loo. "Go right ahead," she snid. * «.- * dressed carefully in the >)ltio suit.
