Suddenly two figures Hew 01 of the door of the ranch hous A thin-faced woman, in a coo summer frock, and a small blue eyed boy with bright yellow hai who screamed: "Pop! Pop!" Tim out Sharon down gentlj and gathered, his family into hi arms. He backed up and lookei at Lorna and Billy. Lorna had changed almost a much as he. Her faded blonde stringy hair was fresh and glossy "You—you look nice," he said "I missed you," she said. Billy said with a rush, "I flew in airplanes. I helped Mr. Larsen drive a car. I even rode horse once—in a park." Clair smiled first and held out her hand. Lorna took it diffidently. Then suddenly they cm- braced. Tim picked Sharon up and they went up the graveled driveway, past the beds of purple sand verbena, white and mauve phlox, golden birds of paradise and scarlet marinrjsa. The lawn was < rich velvety green dichondr«, and the sprinkling system was already on. Tim carried little . Sharon through the spray, and a smile crept over her thin burned face when the cool water touched it. Both opened their mouths, licked their parched lips and grinned at one another. Tim carried Sharon to > bed. and the women began to put cold compresses on her head. Aunt Marie, a small, gray-eyed woman who never stopped talking, slopped them and proceeded to ...,.,.._ , right arm stiff by his side but his face splitting with a wide smile, followed them around with tall cold Tom Collinses. They sat down at the dinne table. Within half an hou. everyone knew v what had hap' pened to everyone else, Keeping within earshot, Uncle Jack, or "Pop," as he liked everyone to call him, went out to sit on the veranda with his shotgun on his crippled arm, his left forefinger on the tri TIM told Lorna how he and Clair had eluded the Traskis Brothers in Cleveland, then Detroit, then Chicago and through ,he Southwest to California. Lorna told him what had happened to her—how an "FBI agent" named Larsen from Pitts- )Urgh had come to the apartment to warn her Tim was in danger and how she had traveled with ,him and Billy acmsii ountry trying 'J catch up with 'im and Clair. First they had flown to De- roit, then tried to intercept I im nd Clair by car all the way to Dallas where they finally gave p then they took a plane yes- erday to Los Angeles. The train rought them to Lancaster where op had picked them up. ''This lOrning the two Traskis broth- rs, Dan and Lou drove up in eir convertible. Here Lorna turned her head way "H was then I learned Mr. Larsen was Ben Tras- She thought a moment. He seemed to bt such a nice isn." There was a hushed cllence fter she finisher!

"Mary Mitchell read them to me every day over the phone. Then I'd tell Mr. Larsen, Ben Traskis, and we'd start after you again. I know now he was in constant touch with his brothers. Lucky we never caught up with you." The tears came to her eyes then. "How could I have been such a fool?" It was nobody's fault," Tim said. "Sooner or later they'd have been here." Clair explained how she had ulanned to trap the the ranch by .notifying the FBI. 4.t this Aunt Marie said, "No ise just wailin'." She went to the phone. "I'll get the FBI now." But the line was dead. "Of course they'd cut the wire?," she said. She asked Pop to take the jeep truck and drive down to Lancaster for help. Pop went out into the driveway to return in a few moments with a long face. "Punctured all the tires and pulled out the ignition wires. Know anything about cars?" , Tim shook his head. They sent Billy to bed at this point. After he was gone, Lorna said, "He'* much better than he was. He's not afraid so much any more." "Being away from me did it," Tim said Lorna came close to Tim. Well, Tim, what do we do now?" • • • TIM looked down into her ia?.el eyes, at her fresh glowing :ace and her glistening hair. Was .his the drab and frowsy wife he had left three weeks ago? He squeezed her arm. "I don't know yet, but we'll .hink of something." He turned, o Pop Hammond. "Got any other gvins?" "No, just the shotgun," "Well, 1 have this .38-caliber pistol and six shots. Left the box if cartridges in the glove com- jartmcnt in the car 12 or 15 miles do'wn the road." "Thai's fine," Pop *aid, "and '11 bet all the Traskis boys hav« itns."
