He could 5eo Ruib scn staring out of her trailer ivindow. Sickening shame washed through him. News of their tiunrrei, what lie had said, and what Jenny had said would be repeated through the camp. Jenny was right about it i>eing a horrible place to live. T-T -TIS p.nger was gone when he got hack to the trailer. He and Jenny, both ashamed by now, made it up \villi kisses. Ruth Elansen kept the twins while Jenny went to the graduation ceremony a week later. Tod looking down at her silting in the second row was struck by the pasty whiteness ol Jenny's skin and the dark circles under her eyes. Remorse washed through him. Now that he was through school he'd find a good job and settle down and be like other husbands. He must try harder to make her happy, because sjie was still In love with him. Ho had invited Ma to the graduation ceremony, too, but she hadn't come. She had never seen the twins either. Her dislike o! Jenny was as intense as over. Now that Harriet was living a life of her own and Joe was gone. Ma stayed in two dismal rooms the third story up on the south side not far from Madison Avenue, She had always kept herself neat, her gray hair curled, her clothes clean, But now she" had let herself go Her hair was screwed into an- untidy knot and short wisps hung straight around her fat face. She went around the apartment tn faded dingy wrapper and run-ov shoes. And she wasn't always haranguing him the way she usec to.

The Morris home was a beautiful old remodeled colonial house Uiat had been (n Rick's family for two generations. Across the way, what had once been Morris homestead acres was how a public park. They had a picnic supper there that evening. Mamie, the Morrjs housekeeper, looked after the twins. It was delightful for Jenny. The two week! at Centervllle passed in no time. Mamie and Mrs. Morris had practically taken over cure of the twins, so thai Jenny could go swimming wilh Rick and Tod and even dancing one evening. Jenny dreaded to go back to the trailer camp. And when Rick's mother found out that that was what they intended to do she wouldn't listen to it.' "You'll be be Her oft* in our little guest collagel" she cried.
