Clnlr In tlif widow of AI Holln.ikr, Tlm'H t,r.H( frlenrf TIM ROGERS dreamed on. It was D-Daj again. Or. the day after. Rifle grenades plopped behind the shell hole where he and Al Kolinsky crouched. Occasionally there was tht crunch of a mortar shell close by. They were some distance aheao of their company, cut off, with a German army corps out there in front of them. And it was dusk growing dark. They had stormed across the Channel unscathed. This was the second day. No one had slept. Now Tim could go no farther. "Let's find a bigger hole," Al whispere'd, keeping his' voice down as though the Germans could hear anything human amid the battle. "No," Tim said. "They'll pick us off here sooner or later." "I'm stayin'." "All right!" They listened as the shooting died down. Soon it was dark. They kept their rifles and grenades ready in case a patrol came along. Tim was beginning to tremble again. "Talk to me, Al. I—I can't take this." Al began to talk. He told him of Glair's singing and their unborn child who he hoped would be a girl. He told him about volunteering for field duty despite three years' legal practice behind him because he wanted to Mrve th« hard way. (They not only had to draft Tim when he finished accounting. They had to come lor him.) He told Tim about Sally, his sister, and in the darkness of the night, punctuated by occasional bursts of gunfire, a star shell or the thump of a mortar, his voice' hardened. "Sally was a beautiful girl. I don't think I'll ever get over how lovely she was. At 15, in Moon Run, before we moved to West Park, she met the wrong kind of guy. At 17 they had her on dope. The cops sent her away to prison for helping a gang of hoodlums strip a store and shoot up a guard. When she got out at 21, she went back to her gangster, pals and the dope. At 22 she was dead—of T.B." * * * AL paused. Tim listened, for never before had Al discussed this part of his life with him. The June ground was cold beneath their fists. "I've never gotten over it, Tim. I made up my mind to go to school and study law so I could do something W help girls like Sally. I specialized in juvenile delinquency cases. For three years I saved every penny I could so I could buy this farm, start a school for girls. "They don't need help when they're grown. It's too late then. I want to help them between 10 and 15, like Sally was when our parents were killed in a car accident, when something could still be done. But there was lots of red tape. I needed qualifications. So I got a degree in education, in night school. I-needed money. T couldn't raise enou.qh But I did save three thousand— enough to put down as a binder on the (arm. It's near Beaver Falls, in the rolling hills coun- trv, on a beautiful spot overlooking 1 the Ohio River. 1 got the license from the state. I interested some well-to-do friends and made arrangements to start building. Then the var came Wow everything's waiting." "How .much will it cost to set the school up?" "Fifty grand. I've figured and refigured till I know the cost of everything by heart. Thirty-five foi the building s—a school, which I'll make out of the barn, and a big dorm, which I can convert out of the house. It's already got 11 rooms. Must be 200 years old. Stone. Fireproof. I can add about 10 more rooms— care for 35, maybe 40, girls. Take them off the streets. Out of juvenile courts. Out of orphanages where they have no family life, little affection, nobody to really care for them. With the other $15,000 I'll get teachers, maybe three or four as a start. Teach the girls regular schoolwork, a vocation maybe, but more important, give them the love and affection they need." He paused. "That's what T want to do. Instead . . ." He peered into the night over no- man's land where the enemy lay. The clatter of a machine gun to their left made him duck. "In- sfead we're out here killing. But this job's got to be done. We've got to move at dawn." Tim shuddered. Al looked at Tim in the,starlight. "What do you think of my plan? At dawn, I mean." Tim was no longer listening. "I can't go on with you in the morning." "You'll have to.* 1 "I can't, Al. Don't make me." • • * TIM ROGERS remembered how he could sleep that niflht 'hen he and Al Kolinsky crouched in a shell hole one day after D-Day. Tim hadn't even dared close his eyes. His stomach muscles had been so tense, he couldn't have moved without making them ache. Then toward dawn the big ns began thundering in earnest again. Al said, "We'll be going for- -ard soon. I'll slip back to pick Up the company. Wait here and I'll join you after I find out where they are." "Don't leave me, Al!" "Okay. You want to go back?" "No—no! I'M wait. Go ahead." <T« Be Continue*) "Why can't I use make-up. Mom? You've got a prettier face than I have and you've been using it for years!" I told him a bedtime story!"
