And naturally he did not sec all the hard-faced young men vpho surrounded Kirsten like an-oversized football learn. ' Heedless, therefore, ol the odds against him Max climbed up on the platform and let everyone see Ihal he regarded Kirsten with smiling masculine tolerance, "Let me tell 'em, honey—you're apt to get the folks all mixed up." Then he gathered the crowd together 'with his eye and said, "Look, fellas, you Icnow women ain't practical. They cry if they don't get their way or if a guy leaves 'em. AinH that so?" He got a laughing response from some of the younger men, Encouraged, Max went on. "This dame's been getting herself excited over a very simple matter. Don't believe everything she says just because she's goo<l lookin'," He paused for another laugh. "Actually," Max continued, "she hardly meant a thing she said Ain't lhat so, Mrs. Peterson? Be. fore you answer you'd better think over the next piece of news I might loll 'em." Max paused. He thought he hac said enough. Joe looked at CarL inquiringly. Joe didn't know what Max meant. "It's all right, Joe," said Carl, imperturbably. "We'll take over from here, Kirsten and I." was a sullen "Boom!" a racing shriek in crescendo anc diminuendo, ending in a muffled "II isn'l thunder," Joe correclcd "We've heard that sound often enough before." "Guns?" "Yeah. Dig slull — Navy.' Twelve inch, might even be Ifi." "But the Navy ain't in Lake Michigan." "Neilher are we. Look al the palm trees." "Gosh! We're on lhat island. So's alt'this crowd of Westwaygo folks," "But they don'l know it." • The men and women in Kirsten's^ audience apparently heard nothing, saw nothing except the girl herself. Kirsten took a step forward. At the edge of the platform, she stood, as if listening, "Kirsten hears it," Carl staled simply. A shadow raltle of rifle fire pattered on the silence like rain and then died away. Kirsten spoke, *"1 am going to tell you what this man means. You. have heard dim threaten me. liis name, by the way, is Max Lengel. He has stated that unless I take back what I have said he will tell you something which he thinks I do not wanl you to know He is mistaken. I do want you to know. It is important that you should know, not from him but from me." "Wait a minute, girlie. We'd better talk this over, you and me.' "No!" Kirsten said it and so die the older men up in front. II seemed unanimous, v Max looked around for a good place to get down to the'ground The big guns growled njenacingly at him and the liUle guns laughed grimly. There wasn't any way for Max to leave Ihe platform. T»*e old hands had pushed right up to llic edge of the structure.and they did not appear to have any intention of moving back. J^IRSTEN looked upward for i moment, over the heads of the crowd toward the shell-torn sun- sel on the embattled Pacific. "Things thai used to mailer," she' in that low, slow voice of hers, "tio nol matter any more. The. ordinary way of living went away for most of us when the men we cared about were no longer here to be our companions in everything we did. Once upon a time the thing which this man started to tell you would, have made me the shame of Ihe community. I would not have been able to live to face tL "This man has forgotten that imes have changed. His name U VIax Lengel if you didn't hear it ,he first time I said il. He, Max Lengel, 1 doesn't understand that a woman's heart really breaks only once. He doesn't know that he cannot hurl me, nol any mor«. He doesn't know lhat 1 have nothing lo lose. "Therefore I shall tellyou what Max Lehgel was going to say— the thing which he thought would make me stop talking against slowing down the speed of this shipyard. "What this man—MAX LEN- JEIj, remember — was about to tell you is thai I am going to have a baby. There is nothing very unusual about thnt except that he was also going to tell you that my husband has been fighting in- Ihe jungles for over a year." There was a considerable murmur in the audience. Some of Ihe ones who had been swayed farthest by Kirslen's first words, now seemed overtaken by a sudden indecision, v. Max Lengel, quick lo sense an advanlage, smiled broadly. Joe College looked questionably at Carl.. "What goes?" he asked. "Shall I try lo get her oul at Ihis?" "No." said Carl. "She's on her own, now. She lefl me behind some time ago. Lei her alone."
