When it was over, Jenny had gain* 1 -* custody of the twins, but \*> r decree would not become fma» Cor six months. The judge's words resounded in Jenny's mind as Rick drove her away from the courthouse in his car. "For the sake of your two children, it nothing else, you two people should have tried in every .way possible to niake a success o- your marriage.' But if you have left nothing undone, and still cannot Hve together in any semblanc of peace and happiness, there is nothing else to do but to cross you: marriage oft the books as a fail ure." She had tried. She had lovec Tod. VRick put his hand over hers. ."•could tell-you were miserable. Ku there had to be unpleasantness at tached to H, you know. I wonde what Tod thought about the si months' wait for the final decree. "1 imagine he didn't like it, Jenny said. s * * • r POD*, in fact, had been stunnec . by the verdict. He ought tc feel happy that the divorce ha been granted. He was free. Only you were never quite free of some one with whom you had lived an shared things as he and Jenny ha< Besides there were the boys. H ms.

They were more ^e animals then than anything se, fiercely demanding little annals lo be constantly diapered nd fed and' rocked and bathed ui now they were becoming little eople. The past few times lie had een them, he hadn't wanted to say oodby. He started for the ollice. Liz r as waiting for him, "Six months more!" she- cried vhen he told her about the trial ThaVs not fair! Why should a oddcring old judge have the *>wer to arrange people's lives ike that?" Tod stood looking out at the raflic moving by in the wet stree Jow, "That's the way itis." "Surely yon cpn do something f you've any backbone!" Liz cried He hated that note of petulance hat was always creeping into he oice. What he needed now wa warmth and comfort. He -turnec away from the'windows and trie 0 lake her into his arms, "I woulc _,iz," he whispered, "if I> kne\ what to do." "If you knew v/hal!" sh ;aid fiercely. She shrugged away picking things up on her desk an slamming them down again. *'Yo could have gone lo Reno or Mexico and got a divorce right away] 1,17, crushed out her cigaret an whirled, about.

"Jenny! What about me?" M I wouldn't have gotten the d vorce to begin with if I hadn thought I was in love with you "Thought!" "You know I was never able quit thinking of you, all the tim 1 was married to Jenny," he b« gan uncertainly, "But I was •c with her too In a way. She is good to me and sweet—" There was a short shocked si- ice. Liz's face had turned whttt' d her hand trembled as she ached (or a fresh eifiaret. "I sun- sc," she said coldly, "that you ink it was your native talent at got you this good job with ther." "Your father was always inter- sted in me." He didn't mean to >und on the defensive. "He was interested in you be- ause 1 begged him. to be," Liz ried shrilly. "My father always ot rne what i wanted. And I 'anted you. That was why he irccl you. For me!

I wonder why 1 tried so arti to get you!" * * • "yon began to feel cold all the way through. He picked up his opcoat and hat and went oul o/ he office. He went' tSirectly~to see r. Conover. Mr. Conover was uneasy but quite trank. He didn't know they had quarreled. "L.!z is a tunny cjirl," he said thoughtfully. "She cabled n\c two years ago while, she \vas on her honeymoon with Jim Courtney, telling m'e to insist hat you take the job we'd planned 'or you here. I tried to rope you in, not knowing why. , When she got back I found out. - She svas sorry she'd married Courtney. She's a spoiled brat, I know. BuX I always thought you had a weakness for her, too, so I offered you this job again last spring, so she could have another chance at you. AnchI guess everything's going to work out, my boy." He patted Tod's shoulder. "It's all in the family. I'd take my son, if I had one, into the firm whether he had any ability or not. A.nd people do like you, you know." Tod put on his topcoat. He felt as though the floor had given way beneath him. But before he could leave the office, Liz burst in. She came up to him and slid her arms around his neck, contrition •writ- teh all over her lovely face. "I'm sorry, Tod. I'm a perfect beast sometimes," she whispered. • (To ISc Continued) THOSE , I SWITCH A. , M-IIFFS,' /UTTU: APpmztR/ THAT 5 WMA FOOTftiLL ItMft ABSoturav NO MEN x/T ALLOWED IN kITtWfrW '.I PRETTY COACH TO POT US OJ A DIET!
