XXV 'J^E wrile-up of tlic Conovcr party gave more space lo Pod Uian h did to the guest of honor, il seemed lo Jenny. The pictures of Tod were extremely flattering—"Tod Duncan, former All-Americon." And Liz was looking her usual perfect sell, like something out of a fashion magazine. Jenny didn't blame Tod for feeling heady, after such an experience, and to have received Mr. Conover's job ofter on top of it. They began at once to look for a house. The bright -young men in the Conover agency could not live In a musty basement in an obscure and slightly tawdry section of town. Tod would have chosen a house in some exclusive new development, but Jenny found one in a less pretentious suburban neighborhood, a modest colonial with an acre of ground and a small orchard. ft was wonderful to get the twins into the pink and white freshness of a nursery all their own. Nice too, to be able to buy the things one needed from Max, without feeling guilty. Max was thinking of selling his shop. Business had declined some and he had always dreamed of buying a trailer and going to Florida. Now seemed an opportune time. He suggested that Jenny go into partnership with Nina and take over the shop. "But, Max, there's no Deed now for me to work with Tod's new job. and Besides 1 naven'l tin- money to invest In anything like that." Max waved his hand and shrugged 'Borrow Like I did " "There's still Tod ana the twins, my tirsl and mosl importanl_ lob/' Max turned away, nghlmg one of his long cjgarets "If you change your mind." he broke ofl. shrugging again. There was something vaguely puzzling to Jenny in Max's attitude, and in Nina's too. Nina nad forgotten the quarrel and sho warmly urged Jenny to do as Max s<igf>sled. • • • JENNY hired a girl to look after J the twins while she shopped for furniture for the new house and conferred with a decorator The furniture that had been her mother's looked out of place m the spanking newness of the house, and Tod wanted everything new The bill for the furniture frightened her, but Tod waved it aside airily. He'd have it paid off in no time once he got a few good accounts lined up. Besides the furniture was a good investment. He wanted to have a big housewarming and invite a lot of important people. They scarcely had a moment to- Jielhcr any more Tod worked late quite often, and he was always having to see an important client out of office hours. He saw .an awful lot of Liz too, openly under guise of business. But its openness did not prevent-its being observed. Maurice Cory's gossip 'column carried a small note. "Is there a mariuil rift | n the offing for a certain prominent football player turned advertising genius? Or is it strictly business with that beauteous boss's daughter he's been squiring to cocklail parties?" . Jenny didn't mention it to Tod. But she wondered whether gossip about Liz and Tod had anything to do with Max's suggestion that she might change hoi mind about e.oiny into oartnershlp wuh [s'ma icii I'ou one evening mentioned a new accounl oc'd iiequircd (01 'he Him only thai rtiiy 'You see Jenny t cold you n woultin'l lane long to pay foi the furniture. The commission on thai single ac- counl svin almost do it II it hadn't been to; Ll? I—" "You see an awful lot ol 1.12, don't you?" Jenny said Slic tried nol to let lhai note ol coolness creep mio nei voice. "Aftei all Jenny." he Durst out as ne rose (rora nis chair "there isn't any way to avoid seeing n lot ol Liz when we work in the same olllce GUI think what It's meant lo work ihere. 1 " Yes. she was thinking, it eer- tainiy had changed things. II was as though a magic wand had been waved over Uicm A month ago Uicy nau oeen losi in e weltci ol ever-mounting bills, and hall crazy over the money situation. Funny how much money really meant. Everyone was always saying, "Money can't ouy everything," but that was silly, wasn't it? He- cause there were few worthwhile things that money couldn't buy. It brought a comfortable place to live, and fresh air and sunshine and exquisite new outfits lor the babies You didn't have lo shop around to save three cents on a dozen ol oranges, or spend hours trying to save a few dollars making little overalls for the babies pul of remnants you'd picked up in a basement somewhere. 'J^HEN came the night of their house-warming. Jenny was uneasy becjuse Rick was practically the only person present with whom ihe was acquainted, excepting Liz Conover, ol course. She felt uncomfortable, because these people moved in a world she had never known. Jenny and Rick slipped oil upstairs to the nursery to look in on the twins. There was so much noise downstairs Jenny was alraicl they might waken. She and Rick were talking in whispers over the cribs ,in the nursery when they heard voices from across the hall. Jenny froze and Rick gripped her arm hard as they listened. (To Be Continued) -Oh, I haven't any prejudices—I'd vote for a woman for president, if her husband was the right kind of/man?"
