"Good afternoon. Mrs. Brown." 7or the first time Eric, his golden •paulettes rattling as he opened he heavy glass door, called her jy name and Gloria looked up at lim, startled, as- he added with :iumor lumbering as a capering elephant: "The Benonis are nice oeople, aren't they? Have you *nown them long?" "Oh. eons," she told him coldly in her most Radclifte manner and swept by with a swish of peppermint skirts. Queer, your not being visible even on the far horizon for so long and now everyone chatty at once. "Don't look now, but your fatal charm is showing." Gloria grinned to herself as she turned the comer onto Fifth Avenue. Being one of the gang at last made her smile so radiant that its effulgence gilded the face ol the little newsboy selling papers on the corner and he grinned back at her. "Piper, Miss?" There was friendliness and admiration in the frank appraisal he gave her. This was the real McCoy, a hot rock with class, his glance almost shouted. "Have you an early edition of the afternoon tabloid?" she asked him. "Gripes, at 4 in the p.m.? I'll have one printed up for you special," he told her impudently. He looked nboul 10 years old, with bright eyes sharp with a knowledge (ar beyond his years, a hard, shrewd little face, fairly clean; and yet there was/an innate chivalry in his bearing that made his shapeless slacks, his cheap sport shirt, and his cheaper pertness somehow unimportant There's good blood in him somewhere, Gloria thought. "Why not try a later edition?" he queried. "Sometimes they hold things over, if It's something special you're lookin' for." pirE trouble Is, I don't know what 1 am looking tor," she told him absently and flipped the pages of the paper to Page 7 which was mtKlly pictures with screaming captions. A seven-year-old boy had drowned in a pond in New Jersey with dotted lines to show where the grapplers had found the body; there was a picture of a Russian diplomat looking as if he had swallowed a sour pickle entitled, "Spur Puss Stymies State Department Again"; the Bronx love-nest of a prominent man had been discovered by his wife and she was pulling the girl friend's hair; the Parole Board had released several unpronounceable and very ugly prisoners; and the Un-American Activities Committee was clucking over a new brood of Communists. "Find what you wanted?" the newsboy queried. "I don't know," she told him. "What's your name?" "Sammy/' he told her. "What's yours, Handsome?" Curiously he did not sound impudent at all, just interested. "Mrs Miltiades Brown. I live at the Splendide Apartments," she told him, adding impulsively. "Here." She pressed a quarter into his grimy hand urging, "Get yourself | a banana split. Sammy," and walked off, leaving him murmuring ecstatically, "Well gee, thanks!" "The third person who's spoken to me today!" Gloria gloated, tloat- ing along down the crowded street in a golden haze of friendliness "We're beginning to belongl We're Brooklynites. or is It ese?" she exulted to Miltiades that evening after he'd eaten half the pie and pronounced it beyond words delicious. "The Greeks had a name for it — " and she gave the words, translating: "The lost come shall be first." "Aw, come off it, Baby." Miltiades urged. He hated a display ol erudition almost as much as hii own silly name. "Kiss me. Kid Bui hot." She gave eminent satisfaction; whereupon he finished the rest ot the pie and they went to bed, thus ending, Gloria thought sleepily, the happiest day jf their married life yet. She reached her hand across to the other twin bed and Miltiades took It into his big one, and hand in hand, like to babes In Prospect Park, they fell asleep. CHE was snuggled Into the big 0 armchair, still la her green chiffon negligee, the next morning, .wishing she didn't have to begin to wash the dishes, when someone knocked peremptorily on her door and when she opened it, two blue- uniformed policemen were standing there. ' "Good morning!" Gloria beamed at them imparlially, wondering what on earth! Oh, of course: "I'll take two tickets," ihe offered,looking absently over at the small gray man In overalls behind them who was industriously sweeping down the red carpet of the corridor. "We wanna know where your friends have skipped to." "Friends?" Gloria stared at him blankly. "Don't give us any of that guff," the cop told her, pushing hii cap onto the back of hi-; head. "You were seen coming out of Apartment 7A yesterday and people who's close enough to swap pie*, are friends, ain't they?" <To Be Continued) WE BUY AND SELL USED & NEW FURNITURE PHONE 2112 We're Proud of Our Work me work « Woodwork ifacluring • Welding BARKSDALE MFG.
