INC XXXV A HOSPITAL attendant motioned Pod in 10 see Ma. and her eyes opened a.« tie readied the bed. She smiled faintly lie felt panicky and alone He wanted to do something tor tier, but he didn't know what he could do. It was a terrible feeling, being so alone, and so Ineffectual. "Tod."* She stopped between words, like a spent' runner. He leaned closer, to hear what she said. "You ought to make up with Jenny," "Hush, Ma, don't try to talk. Ill do that." Her eyes fluttered shut. They let him stay there by her bed. The nurse brought, a chair for him, and then they put up the usual screens. After the funeral, the days passed monotonously, and he seemed to move in a vacuum, unknowing and uncaring. He took a room near his work. It was a dismal little place, but it didn't cost much, and it was all he needed, because he was generally in the tavern at the corner .evenings. Rick looked him up once and found him there. They talked for quite > while about different things, and then Rick saici sud- denlj, "So It's aJ) washed up between you and Liz Conover?" "Sure. That's old news. You're behind the limes," Tod said thickly. "And you've found out you're still In love with Jenny, alter all " . Tod's face tightened, and he downed his drink quickly. "What ever gave you Uiat silly idea?" « • • A FEW nights later Rick had .- dinner with Jenny. He spoke or Tod, mentioning that he was drinking pretty heavily "That sounds like Tod," Jenny said lightly. He couldn't stand .up to anything, she thought bitterly. He waj always running away. "You knew, of course, that he and Liz have split up?" "I wondered why ne didn't turn to ner. when ne needed nelp," Jenny said "What's the matter, did she chanei tier mind again?" '"No," Rick answered. 'Tod djs- covercd thai he didn't love her aftej all He quit the Conover agency too. in January, t don'l think the new job he lias amounts to much." "Darling." Jenny whispered, "I'd much rather talk about us." Rick readied across the table and put his hand on hers. "I'll be so glad. Rick." she said, "when you and I are married and we're settled down with the babies." The line of his jaw tightened and tils eyes searched hers "You think that once we're married youl) be tree ol him. that you won't think, of bim any more. Isn't that it. Jenny?". His direct look confused her. "Nonsense!" She tried to laugh, but it was a failure. . "Jenny, in spite oJ all Tod's shortcomings, his foolishness tn the pas! and his weaknesses, you still love him." "No," she whispered then. "No, 1 don't want to love him. nol ever again. I only want to marry you HicJc. You're so Hue and decent and—kind and generous." '*Quite a list of virtues, darling," Rick said gently. "1 mean it. Rick, when 1 say I want to marry you soon." . "It I thought it would work darling, there isn't anything I want more. But it won't. You and I had belter face it." She couldn't do anything but stare at him. The waiter brought their food but after he had left neiUier of them made a move to eat "1 talked to Tod for a long time the other evening," Rick said at last. "He's miserable without you, Jenny." "Then why—" > "But he'll never come to tell you so. or make a single move to get you back I'm sure ol that. He said one reason he had stopped gomj to see Die children was Ihni he warned to make sure every tic between you was severed " "It fie has so much pride, then I'm sure—" Jenny began "He won't evci try 10 get you back oerause lie nn? nothing to ofler you tie's in debt up to his ears (or his mother's funeral." ''But he's never missed a payment on Ihe house Why -litln'l he let me know it was working i hardship on him?" "That's what I'm trying to tell you. He's so full ol stubborn pride that he'd make those payments on the douse if he had lo seli a pound ot his Hesh every month lo do it 1 guess that day when he 'said he had no one to turn to but you. he really meant it." Tears brimmed siowly into Jenny's eyes. DICK went on lalking in that low gentle voice ot his. "11 1 thought he would make you unhappy again. Jenny, my darling. I would never dream ol giving you up to him But I think Tod's come a long way during these past few months. He's learned a lot 01 things 'the rest of us got through our thick skulls a long time ago. But he's got good stufl in him. and now that he's slraighlehed out. if he could have you back! he'd be all right Nobody ever needed anybody in th'is world any more than he needs you." '"Oh. Rick," Jenny had her handkerchief out now and was dabbing at her eyes, "I'm so mixed up. I've been fighting it so long—" "1 know Jenny. You've been righting ii ever since thai day In the. courtroom. I've watched you, knowing in my hearr that there wasn't really any chance for me to take his place But there's no need tor you to light 11 any more." "What should 1 do. Rick?" "The place where he's working is on Fifth Street. Jenny. Steu- berman's Furniture Company. He geti olf work at 4." "Rick, I don't know what to say to you." "This Is what you call being •noble,'" Hick said. He threw her a wry grin. (To Be Concluded) The Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., is 751 feet long and 350 feet wide. Including the approaches.
