That's it Hildy came at the beginning or summer. She's from some smalj city in the Middle- west She cut quite n swalh for awhile. She's as good at other sports as she is at tennis.

"Surely the men wouldn't care about anything her father tnay have done?" "BUI." said Mrs. Fasker, "you don't know this place. The Inn's mainly a high society refuge. The haul moniie prevails.

Mrs. Fasker interrupted, chuckling appre- cialively. "You're not as dumb as you look. Jarvis. I'm here because jl like the place, not the people." iShe called up an accent that would I have passed in too-too circles.

Beverly, kicking exnensr-e heels in her father's sanctum, borrowed a match from Bili when he happened in 10 leave papers 'or Mr. Coulter's attention. Which is how it had all begun. Bcv was one of a foursome at a corner table m the lounge. Bill had met Caroline Marr, a (lashing blonde, that morning. He'd also been introduced to the little chap, Dick Trevan. The big taffy-haired fellow, with shoulders like an ox and one capable arm hooked carelessly over the back of his chair undoubtedly was Lloyd Williston. The blond giant didn't get up as Bev introduced him as Lloyd Williston. "Lloyd's an aviator and he's asked me to take a plane ride with him," Bev said. ', Lloyd offered Bill a drink. Bill said he didn't c.ire if lie did. He dragged up a chair, wedging Bev in between himself and Lloyd Bev asked: "Well, how was the tennis?" was informal danrjnj thai evening which certain ol Ihe elders watched from in* sid«- Imes Ola Mrs Faskei cr , expertly and auiomaticaijj wai one of ihese fht sight M Mrs Fasker re- mintiea turn that ne aot even met Hildy Sands, much' .ess founo u opoortunitj o( Being mr* to her She was no! at the dance Dick Irevan tappea 015 shoul- I der oresently Bill njrrrndereo I Bev did a duty danc« until tbt vanquisher Mist Graydon and trod a more enchanting measure with the lithe Caroline Alter thai he saw his host and employer.

"Pretty special, sir I'm a lucky guy." Coulter exhaled an aromatic blue cioud. "I'm luckier I've got a month here to your week " "Well." Bill laughed. "I'm leal- ous, of course Hut 1 want to triank you agnin for having me up here." 'Thank Bev." said Coulter "It was her idea." He paused, then added rather slowly: "By the way, have you met young Williston?" "Just for a little while this afternoon." "What do you think of him?' "He seems like a nice fellow," Bill replied. The space between Mr. Coulter's thick iron -gray brows contracted momentarily. "Well, he ought to be. His father's a fine man. Investment broker in Wall Street." That had been sort of a funny one. The question was casual, only not casual enough. So why bad it been put? Coulter wasn't given to small talk. When he spoke he usually had a good reason for speaking.
