THE STORY: Tin niny lin her thnf Ilirlr nin K Into a "on III IRRITATED, Lorn a Rogers form and. although slout, how straight he stood at the altar when they were married in the church not far from the place where she was born on the West Side in the upper Eighties—how happy they had been during the three months he had been based at nearby Fort Dix in New Jer- nodded. But she didn't under-j scy. stand her husband. But if he j Then there had been those unsaid this way of life was coining to an end, then, thank goodness, maybe things would be different. "Your fear, Billy's fear—will it change too?" she asked Tim. He purpled at this, and for a moment she thought he was going to lose his temper. But he swallowed with an effort, then with abandon crushed her small figure to him. With his mouth close to her ear, kissing her hair, she heard his murmur, which was almost a prayer, "It's too la.te for me. But maybe for Billy we can still do something." And Lorna thought of all the little acts of cowardice she had seen him commit during their marriage and felt sorrier for him than she had ever felt for anyone. She Jhought of the day job he had, and how his boss, Mark Oldstrom, had insulted her and made her leave the store the one time some years ago she had come to ask Tim to go with her and Billy to the circus at Madison Square Garden—and Tim hadn't said a word. She thought of the man who had shoved her in the subway in order to get her seat first, and Tim looked the other way. And she thought of the time they were going to the doctor's office on East 177th Street, and the elevator got stuck between floors, and Tim grew so panicky t;.cy had to lift him out—three men with a ladder, alt 208 pounds of him. • Yet she remembered, too, *i fill fairness lo Tim, how splendid lu had looked in his Army uni- forgettable three days they had had together three months later, after Tim completed his field maneuvers in the south and was back in New York, ready to sail for England—and D-Day. VAINLY Lorna Rogers squeezed back her tears and tried to rekindle the flame and was sorry she couldn't because she was so tired and it was so late and she felt so faded and old and had scrimped for so many years and he looked just like the man he had become — a fat, short, pig-eyed coward with whom she lived because now. at 30, she felt she had no other choice. "We will, Tim, we'll do something," she answered. And they went into the single bedroom where Billy was asleep on his youth bed by the window. His little form lay huddled around the pillow. He was uncovered. Even while she was only thinking of it, Tim went over and pulled the sheet up over the boy, for it was a cool June night. The moonlight slanted in through the wide casement windows, and they could see the boy's lower lip tremble as he dreamed perhaps of another encounter. And she turned to go back to her own bed, and Tim turned the other way, quickly, but not quickly enough for her not to notice the tears in his eyes. And for this, too, she despised him. StiJl later Tim lay In bed be-1 side her, thinking of the look in her eyes, and wondered what she would say, this wife whom he no longer loved and who no longer loved him—what she would say if she knew that thi? dny he had stolen $5000 to give to another woman. WHEN Lorna awoke at 7 the next morning, Tim was gone. One of the few benefits he had acquired from his double-shift jobs during the past 10 years, she decided, was his ability to get along on little sleep. When the telegram came at 9 o'clock from Beaver Falls, ?he had already fed and sent Billy off to school. Who was Clair? Lorna cleaned the apartment, searching her memory, but in vain. She went to supermarket to buy her groceries and meat, and while she stood in line waiting to be checked out, the name came to her: Clnir Holinsky. That letter two years ago from Beaver Falls, telling Tim something about n new girls' dormitory—sounded like a report from school board. It had been signed Clair Holinsky. Back at the apartment Lorna took out a butter knife and, after poking under the edge of the roll-top desk in the corner of the living room for several minutes, managed to pry the lock open. She then went systematically through every drawer and pigeon hole. Finally she found it—a small brown leather-bound ledger showing Tim's itemized receipts and expenditures over the 10-year period from 1946 to 1955. One whole page was headed "Clair Holinsky" and bore nino items, nine days, June 7 each time, with a different year opposite the day and month—and opposite the clay "SriOOO." Only one year had no figure after it —1952, the year he had collapsed and spent four months in the hospital. Instead of a sum there wns an angry scrawl: "Sick." The ninth entry was predated June 7 and listed the amount AS $10,000. Underneath was the total: $50,000. Today wns June 7.
