To keep the twins both well fed and warm was the main thing. Even then, in December, they began having colds. Nina, the only person Jenny saw with the exception of the landlady and Tod and the grocer, enme often and offered advice in copious quantities. "You ought lo get the babies out of this damp apartment, Jenny," she suggested one day. "And- r why don't yon get yourself some new clothes, lion? It would pep you up. Max would still give you a discount." Jennj, worn out from all-night croup sessions, and worrying about saving pennies, and trying not to mind her own shabby appearance, struck back that day with the pent-up resentment of months. "We're lucky to have this apartment. And as for clothes -it's ridiculous to even think o( getting any lor myself." 'Tod always looks like a lash ion plate." "That's different. His Job .depends on, it" "Jenny, you owe yourself something. Look at you—your hair needs fixing, and you've got cir- les under your eyes from being up at night with the twins—" "They're worth It, Nina." "Of course! But Tod should think o! you once in a while." . "Tod's doing the bost he can. He has to take care of his mother." Nina stared at her for a moment or two. "I clon'L want,to hear, any,criticism of Tod," Jenny said. "U you don't like him, Nina, we can't be friends," .. ,.. Without another word Nina picked up her coat and hat. At the doorway she turned back and said, "U you'd rather hide your head,like an ostrich, hon, 1 guess it's not my place to spoil things for you. Let me know if you need me.'Maybe you're right. Maybe I'd better stay away,, because I can't keep my mouth shut about Tod. 1 ' * * * r POD came home half hour later to find Jenny crying as she went about getting their supper. Jenny faced him wildly, her face flushed and moisl, her eyes, puffy from crying. "Nina criticized me for not. getting new clothes and— well lots of other things. She wanted to tell me things about you too. But I wouldn't let her." "I wouldn't let' Nina upset me." Tod said. He went into the other room, where one of the twins was whimpering. He felt guilty at Jenny's words because- only this afternoon Liz had wanted him to come to a cocktail party Conover_ Advertising, Inc., was giving tor a big industrialist—a client. Liz had said. "If you think Jenny would disapprove of your go-^ ing f we'll take her along." He knew he didn't dare, go with Liz. If he went to the party with her, he might start going other places with her He'd meet her places clandestinely—well it was just no good. While Jenny got the twins ready for bed he said, "I wish 1 could find the' money. Jenny, (or you to ct some clothes, but you know how it is." Sire was !n nn awful mood lo. night, quite 'unlike herself. She \vhirle<i around, her face red and said, "I suppose you're ashamed oi me!" "No, Jenny, it isn't that at all." He turned away and went into the bedroom to gel ready ,to go. visit ' at the nursing.hom^. He went Iwice a week. Tonight lie knew it was a good thing he was going out. After Tod had gone, Jenny took up Ihe evening paper and tried to read, but she was too tired. She go! ready for bed and Iricd lo relax then; but =she .was too exhausted lo go to sleep immediately. Not having enough money was a dreadful thing..' U spoiled .one's outlook. Anil besides,thai.she was awfully tired from slaying up late nights with the babies. Yes, she was awfully tired. • - . • • • ;•. CHE lay there awake a lonR lime thinking;, trying to remember exactly how she 1 had felt that March day so lo'ng ago—no nol so. long ago either.'only two years —when she had'gohe'dowii to the Union Station to meet Tod. It was snowing, she, remembered, and the store windows were full of spring 'things. She had been so excited about seeing Tod again. He had liked her hat. That little brown velvet bonnet. She slid had il, only she never had any occasion to wear it any more. But Tod had said she looked cute in it: She crawled out of bed suddenly, throwing back the covers, and wcnl to the closet and found the box where her old hats' were. She fished out the velvet bonnet and brushed il oft. The tulle ribbons were frayed. She .went -to, the mirror and snappcd'on the dressing table light and put Ihe h;it on her head. She stared at herself for a long moment, tier.heart sinking. She looked terrible, her eyes piiiTy, no make-up, hair stringing down on either side of her face. And .then too, a velvet bonnet doesn't look too becoming atop a pair of faded cotton pajamas. She flung it on the dressing table, tears rolling : down her cheeks now Tears of'self pity.
