Now, aflor the final chore, he woulri be able to return and begin a new life with Lorna and Billy. Maybe he would change jobs. Perhaps he could move his family to a smaller community, » here Billy could play on grass SOME time later, the tele- | no t marked with "Keep Off" phone rang.

Oldstrom was furious, an;i Lorna had difficulty understanding him as he roared into the phone. "Tim told me he wanted $5000 in advance—all his next year's salary," Oldstrom said. "I tbid him nothing doing. Now he's gone and written himself a check. The idiot. Where is he now?" Lorna said she didn't know. "Find him. and tell him that if he tries to cash that check, he'll wind up in jail. Under- ( stand?" Lorna said she did. By lale afternoon, Lorna had her clothing cleaned and pressed, and had withdrawn the $304.50 she and Tim had kept in » joint savings account in a Parkchester loan association. She telephoned an airline (or reservations to Los Angeles, but .found there were none available until th* next day. Next she sent a night letter to Aunt Marie and Uncle Jack who qwned a chicken ranch in the Mojnve desert near Lancaster, Calif. She told them she was coming for a visit. "I'll show him," Lorna said to herself defiantly. TIM ROGERS sat in a coach on th« train clacking toward Pittsburgh through the- green him to get down. But the old fear of the unknown clutched at his belly and Tim Rogers wondered if he could shatter the mould into which he had been cast by circumstances and by his nature. Could s man break the habits of 10 years? He had been a coward since he was a boy. And his fear, his cowardice, had made him do terrible things. Could he undo them with 10 years of atonement? He hoped he had. Could he change himself? He didn't know how. But he'd have more money now. Maybe after his return he could find professional help for himself and for Billy, for both of them needed it. And then he could start giving Lorna and his son a few of the things h« had deprived them of for so long. He watched the green lawns of Harrisburg flit by his train window in the late morning sunshine. Having been tip late, he stretched back in his seat to rest —and began to think of what he would do when he got back. Ten years of drudgery drifted through his mind. Ten years of being chained to two jobs, then the third this year so he could gain a year. Ten years without a vacation, for when one came, he had to work at the second job. or the third. He thought humorle.isly that he was probably the only man Pittsburgh through the- green he was prooaniy me oniy man rolling hill* a! Mitero Penniyl-1 in Ntw York who got three vaca- I tions a year and could never get away for even one. Well, now it was all over at last! Tim wondered whether Clair Holinsky had changed much. He remembered how ravishingly beautiful, how tall and dark- haired she had been when he had seen her. right after the war. He hadn't dared face her since that time for fear of giving himself away, He had gone to her home in Pittsburgh to tell her ; about Al's last talk with him and • how he. Tim, and many friends 1 of Al's who had known him ;md ! loved him were going to help her carry out his plans. He remembered how she I looked at him, levelly for she | was as tall as he. and then, dry- cved. said. "I will never forget ' this, Tim." I * ' • ! NO, he hadn't ;'o:ie it for Clair. i It was for Al. Al Holinsky, the 'tall, thin, six-foot dreamer with thin angular shoulders, drooped eyelids, a slight cigaret cough, who. five years older than Tim, had been his best friend in the Army. Tim Rogers dozed. The porter came by with coffee. The train hurtled into a tunnel through the Alleghenies, and the windows were black where green fields rolled by a moment ago. Tim was tired. He dozed again. Something worked loose in the passageway, to the next car and began to tap against the metal. The sound grew louder. Soon it beat like a distant tap-tap-tap oi a machine gun. Inside the car the sleeping man crouched down in his seat and buried his head in his arms, fear twisting his fat face. He dreamed of the machine- gim bullet tearing the sheathed bayonet off his waist as he fell into a shellhole. Al Holinsky fell on top of Tim. The hole was just large enough for the two of them to get bnlow the surface of the earth—to burrow into the ground, seeking a little protection from the death in front of them. The machine-gun fire swept over them, kicking little fistful* : of dirt into their rr'u^c. 1 (To Be Continued) "Barnes has been with the bank 20 years and I trust him completely—the only things he fibs about are fishing, golf and his gas mileage!"
