The apples were ready and she rolled out ner dough with delicate, quick strokes. "Light, light, as II you were stroking silk," she warned. Mrs. .-Benonj sliced her lemon very thin, so that there was merely a suspicion of lovely yellow crescents lying on top of the sliced, cinnamoned apples. "Now dot the top crust with butter," she ordered. "Real butter, mind, not margarine. Then you lay the crust on—so—and dust lightly with melted butter and cinnamon—so." "Ambrosia, fit for Zeus himself," murmured Gloria, awed. Mrs. Benoni eyed her suspiciously. "I thought you said your husband's name was Mil—-" ' "—'tiades," finished Gloria. -He was only a Greek general but Zeus was the Big Sneeze. He liked shoot off lightning bolts and lave ambrosia for breakfast." "Oh, cereal," said Mrs. Benoni. Fust then the phone rang. "Did ever get my hands in dough that hat darn phone didn't ring? Put four pie in the oven, dearie. I'll inish mfne in a minute." She hurried to answer the phone. "Hello, Benny? Yes, it came. I laven't opened it yel because Mrs. 3rown is h'ere making a pie—Mrs. Brown, you know, the blonde from next door—tor heaven's sake, how did I know?" Gloria squirmed uncomfortably, wishing the telephone wasn't in the vestibule right next to the kitchen so she wouldn't have to listen. Was Mr. Banom angry because his wire had Invited her in here? But Gloria couldn't very well leave til! the pie was done. Oh, dear! "No, no, Benny!" Mrs. Benoni screamed into the phone. "lie couldn't for six months et. Page 7. you say? You'd better not come home till after dark. Sure. Sure, I will. Be careful, Uenny." • • • * VERY strange conversation to " have with one's husband over hat, Gloria was thinking when Mrs. Benoni went by the kitchen door like one of Zeus's own thunderbolts, snatched up the newspaper lying on the dining room table, tearing a page in her eagerness. Her hands trembled as she read and her face was very white and Gloria, feeling uncomfortable, opened and closed the oven door to remind her hostess tactfully that she was still there. But when Mrs. Benoni came back into the kitchen she had pulled herself together and there was decision in her eyes and two little red spots in her cheeks. "Why don't you go wash your hands while 1 pop my pie in?" she urged Gloria. "No, not that bathroom. Go through to the lavatory at the far end of the apartment, dearie. It has clean towels." She wants to ge^ rid of me, Gloria knew; well, it's none of my business. The lavatory was done in bright pink tile and the towels so lavish with lace Gloria hated to use them; but she ran the water, obediently rumpled one of the movie prop towels, and started back, but the door wouldn't open. She turned the knob again. It must be stuck; but when slse pulled with all her strength, the door still wouldn't budge. "It's locked on the outside!" A kind of panic came over her and she colled, "Mrs. Benoni! Open the door, please!" and when there was no answer, she pounded on the pink door. It I finally opened so suddenly she almost tell through, "Darn Hint lock," Mrs, Bcnont ejaculated, pushing up the little gadyei so thai Gloria couJd see what had happened. "It (nils down. I forgot to lell you to shut the door easy. You look pale, dearie. You must have a glass of nice wine before you go." She was so concerned, so patently once more Ihe hospitable neighbor that Gloria felt ashamed for getting so childishly hysterical. After all, any lock might gel tern pern menial. The wine in tlun glasses and the crisp iitlle wafers were so delicious, Gloria sipped a disgraceful amount and before she realized it, both pies came out of the oven, browned, heavenly fragrant, delectable; except that Mrs. Dononi's pie was almost twice as big as Gloria's. QLOU1A, Ihrilled. broke oft tiny morsel of her own crust and it melted in her month like a snowflake in July. "You're wonderful! It's marvelous!" she cried and flung her arms impulsively about Mrs. Benoni's neck, murmuring dizzily, "My first pie and my first friend in this great city!" "You're welcome," said Mrs. Benoni, disentangling herself. "I shouldn't have given you that last glass of wine." She propelled Gloria, plus pie, gently toward the front door. She put the pic in the middle o« the living room table where Mil- tiadcs would see it the minute he opened the door and fell across her bed for a little nap, and when she woke up. it was afternoon. She lay there, deliciously drowsy, wondering what it was Mrs. Benoni had found so upsetting on Page 7. Miltiadcs always took.the morning paper with him to read on the subway and anyway she was sure it had not been the big dignified morning paper that Mrs. Benoni had been reading because ol the number of pictures on the back page; when one went out to buy a dinner suitable to go with the magnificent pie, one might get an early edition of an afternoon tabloid. .
