Traffic blocked for half a mile; /flashlight-waving patrol officers, trying to keep cars moving. People jumping from their cars, running up for a close view. A white- faced woman hurrying back to her own sedan. Headlights concentrated on a single, small area. Automobiles twisted into weird, unreal shapes. He saw. the' officer who had summoned him. "Hello, Harry. This looks like a bad one." The patrolman took his arm. "It, is bad, Doc. This fellow over here," he motioned with his flashlight ~ "Think he's gone. You'd better take a look, though." The light focused on a still.form on the pavement. Dr. Connelly/adjusted" his stethoscope, knelt beside the still figure. "Probably never knew what hit him," Hugh said. "How about the others?" "There's another fellow in a bad way beside the car in the ditch. He was still breathing when I , left him." .'_ The flashlight beam flicked over the outlines of a long, expensive --coupe. The car seemed strangely familiar. Hugh dismissed the thought as he slipped down the "bank, hurried to the injured man. - The patrolman's light shone full on a white, blood-smeared face.

"WeAvere coming down the road behind this big, gi'een coupe," the man told him. "The boy wasn't driving fast and he was on his own. side of the road. "Then this other fellow—the one that got killed—came toward us, fast, weaving from side to side. He must have been doing 80 or 90. The boy in the coupe swung off the pavement, but this fellow hit his left front fender. . "That's about all I remember. Next thing I knew this car was rolling over and over toward us we crashed into it, or it crashed into us, before we could stop. The coupe went off into the ditch." "that's what all the tracks show, Doc," Harry put in. ' checked them myself. It sure ' _ Thcfihjured man "looked, at Dr. Connelly in awe. "Is that your boy, Doc? What you doing here, this—" He hurried up the stairs. * * * . ARTHA glanced at the clock— 3 a. rn. A new year only three hours old. And so much had been crammed into that three hours. It seemed like three years since Kathleen had turned from the phone, told her that Valerie's car was wrecked. Somehow she knew, by some intuition every mother possesses, that Jerry was hurt, even before the superintendent of the hospital called. But how seriously was he hurt? Even now she did not know. She recalled now the bumps and falls Jerry had- suffered learning to walk. "Hardhead," Hugh had called his son then, because a bump never seemed^to bother him. Would he still be "Hardhead" tonight? ,!'... Her thoughts raced on, far outdistancing the .crawling minute hand of tlie office >clock. Finally, as if from a great distance, she heard" a nurse saying:^ "Will you come upstairs riow, : l: Mrs. Connelly; Doctor wants you and the girls to come up." "I wonder it Dad and Mother will break the news to Jerry about Valerie," Sheila said. "He'll nevor believe we didn't have something to do with her leaving in a huff." The thought had been troubling her since Valerie stormed out oil this same room five hours ngo. Jerry loved Valerie. Mary loved Jerry. Val en e was in love only with herself. It was like a nursery rhyme riddle with no answer. It was up to Jerry to find the answer. But how could they tell him what Valerie had said? Who would : tell him? "I don't know how that brother of mine could be so blind," Sheila went on. "He should have been wise to Valerie five minutes after he met her." "He was unconscious while Val carried on about her car," Mary began. "He's been unconscious for six months," Kathleen added, from behind the magazine, wake up sometime." But' the ending of Jerry's romance with Valerie '"-would not solve Mary's problem. Jerry might be bitter, against his family, against her. He might even go through with his determination to quit medicine. If he did that, there was little hope into the room. Bandages encircled his head. ' A framework supported his broken arm. His face was pale and drawn, but he still could grin. "Happy New Yea*. 1 ! Here, be careful"--- Kathleen and Sheila had rushed to the side of the bed to kiss him— 'Tm fragile. I break easily." Dr. Connelly's face and that of bis wife mirrored their happiness. "Not so fragile, son," the, doctor said. "The raps you -took would and you'll gel over Val, too." "I'm over that right how, Dad ." Jerry's glance went around ihe "room. "I've been pretty much of a fool. I've hurt you, Mother, and you, too, Dad. . . Say, think you could be using an associate in your office in a year or two? I'm going back to school." They were all talking then, telling Jerry of Sheila's arrest, of the new car, of plans for the spring semester. But not for long. Dr. Connelly soon hurried them out of the room. "What happened last year is past," Martha said as she kissed her son. "Hurry and get well. You're starting this new year from scratch." "Mother, send Maiy back here, just for a minute," Jerry whispered. "You all wait in the hall. I've something to say to her, alone." Homecoming have denied a stone wall. And that hard head of yours didn't even crack." "Queer place to spend New Year's," Jerry was saying. "I tried lo get home for that annual family breakfast. Didn't quite make it." "Let's forget last night," Martha suggested. "No, don't want to," Jerry persisted. "I've a lot of things to tell you. Valerie and I are through!" "You are?" The doctor's surprise seemed genuine.. "Yes. Washed up. Finished." Jerry reached for his mother's hand, grasped it tightly. "I'll tell you about it and then it will be buried in the past—that's the rule, isn't it? And all of this happened HpHE doctor, Martha and Hie •*• twins stood beside the train. In a few minutes Sheila and Kathleen would be on the'way back to school. "Tell the house mother r/e're keeping Mary for a week," Martha said. "Jerry wants her to stay, and it makes the long days in the hospital more endurable for him.'* "Wait till the girls find out he wouldn't even let her come to the train to see us off—" Kathleen laughed. "Don't you dare—" Martha began, then laughed herself. "And well make plans to bring Mary back with us for spring vacation," Sheila reminded them. "That, will be such a surprise for Jerry!" "Jerry will probably have more to say about that han you will/' Hugh said. . . . "Better say goodby before midnight." They waited for him to continue. "It started when I said I had to be home this morning. Val wasn't coming at first, but finally gave in when I promised to take her home early. We kept arguing most of the time during the drive over A kiss and huge bouquet are the welcome thai awaited wounded now. Time for the train to pull out.

You may wreck Jerry's medical career, but you're not going to disturb him, nor his family right now, ranting about your car. "Don't you realize how seriously Jerry has been hurt? He may not get well — and you stand there worrying more about your car than the life of the man you're going to marry." * * X. "T7AL laughed. /v^-.- _ * "The 'man I'm ~ going to marry! That's funny.

If Jerry returned to school, they might begin dating again, as they like about, you. "I told her she'd have to like my family if she wa§ going to marry me, and she set me back on my heels by telling me that she had no intention of marrying me —ever. I got mad then, took her home. And on the way, we hit this other car." "Val told us, too.

Jerry did everything he could to prevent the crash, but if you still insist he was at fault, we'll be happy to pay for the damage. We're getting off cheaply. "You might have wrecked Jerry's entire life — if he lives. Now, I believe your parents are waiting for you." He stepped back to let her out the door. Valerie pulled her coat tightly around her, hurried from the room, "I hope I never see any of you again — and that goes for Jerry, too!" was her pnrling thrust. They waited until the elevator door closed behind her. "You heard — everything??' Mary asked. "Everything," Martha answered. "We understand, Mary. We love him, too." "Will he— will he get well?" "He hasn't regained consciousness," the doctor told her. "There all appropriation bills until a uniform policy for non-defense measures can be worked out.
