XVII A Fl'ER the ceremony at the rock was over and the numerals 2 and 1 stood out sharply and freshly cut on the smooth surface, the people started back toward the houses. Most of the children scuttled ahead, calling back and forth, eager with ideas about the bonfire vhich traditionally ended the New Year celebration. Ish walked V>cside Em, bui they talked little. As always at the date-carving Ish felt himself thinking deeper thoughts than usual and wondering what would happen in the course of the year. Now he looked around, as he had often looked 'before, at the ones who were with him. They were, so lo speak, the bricks' out of which a new civilization must be fashioned. There was Ezra, for instance. Ish fell himself growing warm with the mere pleasure o:' friendship as he looked at that thin ruddy face and pleasant smile. Ezra had genius perhaps, but it was the genius of living on easy and friendly terms with people, and not the creative drive that loads toward new civilizations. And there beside Ezra was ' Gcorye. good old George—heavy and shambling, powerful still, though his hair had turned wholly gray. George was a good man, too, in his fashion. He was a first-class carpenter, and had learned to do plumbing and painting and the other odd jobs around the house. Mo was a very useful man, nnd had preserved many basic skills. Yet Ish always knew that George was essentially stupid. Next lo George, wns F.vlc, the half-witted one. MoJIy kepi her -••well groomed, and Evie, blonde and slender, was good-looking, ii you could forget the vacantness of her face. Then came Molly, Ezra's older wife. Molly was not a stupid person, but she had had little education and could certainly not be called intellectual. Besides, like other women, she had expended her energy at bearing and rearing children, and now five of hers were still alive. * • • DEYOND Molly, the next person D was Em. When Ish looked at Em, so many feelings boiled tip within him that, he knew any judgment he might try to make of her would be value. She it was to whom they al! turned in time of trouble. Some strong power lodged within her, to affirm and never to deny. Yet, her power lay deep in the springs of action; in a particular situation, though she might inspire courage and confidence in others, she herself seldom supplied an idea. Ish knew that he would always turn to her and that she was greater than he, but he also knew that she would not be of help in planning toward the future. Beyond Em, lolling on the floor, were Ralph and Jack and Roger, the three who were still called boys, e.ven though they themselves were rparried and had children. Ralph was Molly's son who was married to Ish's daughter, Mary; Jack and Roger were Ish's own sons. Though he was only some 20 years older, still he seemed separated from them by centuries. They had not known the Old Times, and so they could riot look forward much.. He was looking now at Jean, Ezra's younger wife. She had borne 10 children, and seven were still alive. As (or Maurlne, George's wife, she had not even bothered to come to the gathering, but hod gone directly from the rock to her own house, Three other adults also were not present. They were Mary, Martha, and young Jeanie, who were married to the three boys. Mary had always seemed to Ish the most stolid of all his children, and now with her own children coming so fast, she grew a little more bovine, yearly. Martha and Jeanie also were mothers, and motherhood was absorbing them. Half a dozen children were interspersed among the adults or circled around restlessly on the outside of the circle. And now, as he began to focus on the children, Ish saw that one of them Was not scufTling with any other, but was sitting there. No sooner had Ish's eyes focused for a moment upon Joey, than Joey's alertly wandering glance noticed, the attention his father was giving him. He squirmed with delight, and his face broke into the all-embracing grin of a nine- year-old. Ish winked slyly at his youngest son. Joey's grin could scarcely have become any broader than it was, but in some way it seemed to spread. Ish caught the nutter of an eyelid in return. 'T'HEHE was a slow argument going on' among George and Ezra and the boys. Ish had heard it all before, and was not enough interested to participate or even lo listen lo a!! of it. "One of them things don't weigh more'n 400 pounds, anyway, I think," George was saying. "Yes, maybe," Jack replied. "But just the same, that's a lot to lug up here." "Yes, but what do you want ice for anyway, George?" This was Ralph speaking. All at once there' was a quick comradeship and sense of understanding in the glance. Joey seemed to be saying that either his father or he would find an answer quickly and not hesitate as George was doing. Then something exploded inside Ish's brain. He did not hear Ihc words thai at last began to unroll slowly from George's mouth. "Joeyl" Ish was thinkinR—and the name seemed to reverberate all through his consciousness. "Joey! He is the one!"
