Stay, stay." The old. stooped man squinted from under his prominent eyebrows in the morning sunlight "A sea has two shores," he said. "I'm bound to the other." He reached out his hand. "You, Simon Purdy. I heard the Cap'n call your name. H'ist yerself into the boat," "Not me," Purdy said. "I aint »f ore bad things so good. I'm not leavin'." "1 thought I was talkin' to a full Milorman," Lamed said. "But you're not yet When you Bland there and ialk me talk like that Simon, there's lasses in Valpo 1 and Calcutt' and Mar-, seilles and the whole world over who'll cry fer ye on sailin' day. Come away, man, and take yer pick of the world." Purdy moved while his woman dragged at him'and «creamed. But 'he left her »t the water's edge, boarded the boat to sit facing the ship. Naish was unable to meet the grief in his eyes; Purdy'i emotion was too much like that' Phoebe had expressed that night in the President Roads. He stared instead back at Lamed. The crowd had parted to let 'Larned through to Alfy. Alfy wore no farewell garlands and in his right hand he held a heavy pandanus wood shark club. "Let me be. old feller," Alfy said In a low thick voice. ." 'Ere I stay." "Ah, be a good lad, AUy," Larned said. "You wouldn't desert your males, would you?" "I'll kill," Alfy said. He raised the club to shoulder height and his eyes were fiery and terrible :nr.d his facial skin gray-shaded. "I'm me own man." Larned stepped back wordlessly while the crowd made way for him. At tlic water's edge he •topped. "You want to U7> air?" BY ROBERT CARSE b* said. , "I can bring the rest of them out aboard to Mr. Bothwick." "No, there's no use," Naish said. He was profoundly moved, close to tears, and it was difficult for him to speak. "We'll sai' without him." The people ran into the water ..'hen Larned boarded the boat. They heaped flowers and fruit and coconuts and taros and fish and a live pig into it, and they seized the men's hands and arms and they embraced them, swam alongside after Naish had given the order to shove off. ' • • • IT'S Just a touch mad, Naish thought. Even Mata'ora and his wife are along. This is their dream come true for certain. But you didn't say goodby to Alfy and the poor lad's all alone there with his girl. Go back for him and he'd beat your brains in with that club. He's just another you have lost The atoll people swarmed over the ship from bow to stern. The men insisted on going to the windlass with the crew and Albemarle Morrow set up a chanty. Simon Purdy had th* wheel and down in the waist Kaui was spilling halyards and sheets off the plnrails. Mr. Bothwick, immaculate, motionless, stood at the knightheads to watch the green-slimed cable break water. He swung and lifted a hand above his.head. "She'i up and down, sir," he called. "Very well." Naish felt a strange excitement "Give me the fores'! now, mister." The canvas flung rosy white as Kaui released It, .then he was back down on deck. Re beckoned to the women and children; they joined him at the hauls and the sail swelled round the fair. The atoll people left the ship only when Mnta'ora threatened them with • belaying pin, U>« Bead Courier News Classified Ads. Paint Closeout Many Types And Colon i Price Hubbard Hardware WE'VE GOT IT!

They ang poignantly sad songs of parting, and over and over they tied, "Come back, come back!" Naish was near the limits of eU control. "Ask them to go way," he told Kaui. "I'm not fit for any more." "Wait, please, sir." -Kaui pointed astern. The atoll had dropped low to he sea, was a flicker of coral, a thin thrust ol palm fronds. But he sail of Mata'o'ra's gift whale>oat lay clear; Mata'ora was overhauling the ship from the ind. "He carries Alfy with him," Kaui said. "That's Alfy in the bow." • • • , ALFY boarded the main deck. He walked slowly aft and halted at tht foot of the quarter deck adder. The hollows below hi« angular cheekbones were greatly pronounced, his ey* i o c k e 11 deeply sunken. "Sorry I played he bloody ape with Lamed," he said. "I didn't mean him no real iarm. But it was the lass who old me to come away. Said that f I was a sailor I shouldn't desert, not even for the likes of ier." "I respect you very much, Alfy," Naish said. "You're to b« n the chief mate's watch. Go nform him. I'm sure he has need of you." . "Thank you, «ir," Alfy said. He touched his forehead with his .•ight fingertips. "You've treated me most kind." « "Not at all," Naish said. He waited then only until Alfy had gone forward. The boy's arrival seemed to have some sort of peculiar significance 'or the «toll people, for all the canoes headed about together »nd with the whalcboat leading set in toward the land. Tha last shouts »nd songs quavered over the water and were still. Down In hl« cnbln, Naish sat on the edge of hl« bunk and lowered his head Into his Hindi. Th« refrnln of "Com* b»<*, come buck!" rang yet In his head. <T» B* Cold Waves _ Starting At up Moderne Beauty Salon 111 N. 2nd St. — Phone 3-3132 Kirby Drug Store $750 For Your Old I ELECTRIC RAZOR an a new Remington, Schick, Sunbeam, Ronion or Nor«lco EXPERT WATER PUMP REPAIR Hubbard Hardwart Phone 2-2*15 RADIATOR WORK • Boiltd Out • Repaired • Flo T«it«d • R«-cor«d ALL WORK OCAKANTEED GROVER'S RADIATOR WORKS 5M Cl, Lain An, . 1-IN1 "How did you ever manage to drew in time for anything in the Navy?
