"I do not!" Betty sat straighter 'and her \yide blue eyes snapped 4 with determination. "We talked about a trip to California for so long that they practically shipped us ofE to stop hearing about it. Imagine -what they'd say if : they found out we were stranded! And I'd never hear the last oJ it from the family." / "Neither/would I,",.said Martha, returning her attention to the newspaper. "So the only thing to do is find a job and work at it long enough'for-the fare back home." *•*•'* «T ISTEN to this," Martha went -*- 1 on. '"Wahted—Two attractive, dependable young women to take Airspeed Trailer and small coupe up the coast for advertising purposes. Must stop in trailer camps and towns along the .way to allow inspection of the Airspeed Trailer and explain \ its advantages. .

'-'Mart! What a break that would be! It would give us a chance to see the test ol California, and the North- West as well." She stopped uncertainly. "Do you suppose there really co«M be a job like that?" ' -~ "Get your hat," said Martha. J^Ve're going to find out" • Arnold Sloss 1 office had no ante- toom, and when the two girls reached the fourth floor ot the At' las' Building they found a line ol more than a dozen women lined tip before the door of No. 451. - "We're a couple ol tardy birds," whispered Betty, "and we'll never get the worm." "Keep your chin up," Martha told her. "If we can only get in there I've a hunch we'll rate. The ones we've seen go in have been! 'singles.' And he wants two girls. We can tell him that we've known each other for years, and know we can get along. That ought to be ' important to him." "I only hope," Betty said prayerfully, "that we do get inside. That dizzy-looking platinum number in front o£ the door now is the type that could sell a male Ice cream In Alaska." But U the platinum blond had impressed Mr. Sloss he wasn't, apparently, going to let her know about it today. For the line did move on—and eventually Martha and Betty, found themselves seated before a big mahogany desk. Arnold Sloss was fat and round and slightly fed, but he owned a friendly smile. * # ~* "WELL," he began a little ivcar- ** ily, like a man who has gone over his story many times, "I'm interested financially in a company manufacturing the Airspeed Trailer. No doubt you girls are familiar with the popularity of thfl automobile trailer. We think we have the best trailer on the market and we want a couple of. young girls to take one up the coast as an advcrlising stunt. It sounds easy, hut it'll be real work for whoever gets the job. The pay is $35 a week and expenses for the car." "That would ue^satisfactory," said Martha quickly. "And Miss Hayncs and I would like the job. You see," she added, "we've known each other a long time and we know we can get along together.'' he watting line, "The position is aken. I'm sorry—and, I thank you for coming." Betty whispered T to T Martha, "Let's take the stairs. I don't feel like going down in the elevator wilh all those disappointed gals. And I wish you'd pinch me on the way down." ~ ~ Sloss nodded. ~ "That's a good point, all right. I rather like the appearance of you two. There've been . some lookers in here this morning that would altroct attention for the trailer—but they've becn.kind of flashy." He gazed nt Martha and Betty in turn. "Yes sir, you two ought to sell trailers or I'm a Chinaman. One blond the other brunet." Sloss rcachec for a small pad o£ paper. "I'm going to send you down to see Mr Carrington. He's Airspeed's advertising manager, and he'll give you an advance o£ salary and expenses and an itinerary. And naturally there'll be a little drivin; test." As he ushered Matlha and Bet ty. out the door he vnnounced t< went immediately to see Mr. Carringlon, the advertising manager. Using the address which Sloss had given them, they found him in the back room of a small shed on the outskirts of the city, near Balboa Park. In the shed stood one ot the Airspeed Trailers—a veritable land yacht. It had cushioned seals which made up into berths for sleeping. Thcro' vas n cabinet which included n vash basin, and a shower com- lartmcnt with a small water tank ibovc. At the hack end was a iny stove and sink, with shelves or cooking utensils and dishes. Carrington's first move was to nvite Martha to take the driver's eat in his own car which he at- achcd to the trailer. Carringlon tlicn explained the railcr's features to them, and gave hem a package of printed folders. Oddly, he looked very much like Arnold Sloss. But he was ox- .remely cordial, and seemed de- ighlcd at Sloss' selection. "You ought to start out tomorrow," lie [old Ihem. "We want to lie plenty ot time for the tourist s son. I'll have a new light coupe here ready for you. And I suggest you get some touring outfits, if you haven't them already. You know, leather jackels and boots— maybe some shorts. Our idea is to make trailer traveling as smart as yachting—lo 'sell' the idea ot buying and using a trailer." In the slrcct car on the way back to town Martha said, "I'm still suspicious. . Where's the Airspeed factory? It seems to me that Sloss and Carrington are moving pretty fasl." Betty groaned. "When you die and go to heaven you'll pull Saint Peter's whiskers to see if they're false! They've probably made only one frailer, and won't make more until they get some orders. That Carrington talks a salesman's language — and all salesmen arc a little crazy, but perfectly harmless and nice. You're seeing things in the dark. It looks like a swell job to me — and it looks like adventure ahead for little Martha nnd Betty." "I'm game to go through wilh it,' 1 Martha replied. "But I'm wondering what kind of adventure it'll be." In another half hour they debarked from the "help-yourselt" elevator nnd walked down the hallway to their apartment. A slender young man was vainly at- '.empting to unlock their door. "I'm afraid there's a mistake," "Martha said. BY DONALD GRAY Couiicr News Gardening ( .
