XX Tf^ATER supplies remained scanty throughout the day, bu 1 at least no one suffered from thirst. That evenirig the older ones, including Robert and Richard who were only 16, gathered at Ish's house at his Invitation. Ish found no one much disturbed. It would be a good idea to try digging a well near one of the houses, rather than to move to some houses nearer a natural water supply. Yes, they probably would have to watch sanitation carefully under the new arrangements. Occasionally someone deferred to Ish to settle a point, but this deference, he realized, might .be because he held a faintly recognized natural leadership of intellect or even for no better reason than that he was the host. There i was no secretary taking a record 'of what happened. But then, there were no motions made and no 'votes taken. "This shouldn't have happened," he said. "We shouldn't have let this creep up on us. Any time in the last six months we should have been able to see that the water in the reservoir was failing, but we never even went to look at And here we arc, caught suddenly, and shoved back so that "Yes, that's the old speech, but maybe there's a new point there. How about that business o£ sending out an expedition?" To Ish's surprise a vigorous discussion arose, and in its course he was struck again by the unpredictable quality of people, particularly in a group. He had thrown out the new idea without any special forethought; it had sprung spontaneously from the events of the day—the surprise which had come upon them because they had not taken the pains to explore around the reservoir. His original idea of an "expedition" had merely been that they should explore the country for 100 miles or so roundabout, but he found that the others had understood him to envisage more. » * * TJOW did they know that the *"*• government of the United States had actually failed? Even if it had, it might have been reconstituted. It would be small and weak, of course, and might not yet have been able to re-establish :ouch with the West Coast. By ;hcir own effort they might make 'he contact. j Another curious feature was j .hat nearly everyone wanted to go! i t was the best evidence you could we'll perhaps never be able to, want as to the way In which peo- i, catch up with things again. We pie generally—males, at least— Bought to be teaching the children j were born with itchy feet, always ^ to read and wrile. We ought to • ready to go somewhere else and send an expedition to find out see new things. The question be- what's happening other places. It's ; came one of elimination. In the no* safe not to know what may be happening just over the hill." Through the noise of the hnnd- clnpping he heard one of the boys saying: "Good old dad! He's said it again!" And another replied: "Time for George and the refrigerator!" Ish joined in the laughter. Then end the decision was for Robert and Richard, youngsters, but well able to lake care of themselves. Their mothers, Em and Molly, looked doubtful, but the enthusiasm of the meeting overrode their objections. Robert and Richard were delighted. His excitement rising, the old road maps standing out more clenrly in his mind. Ish planned Ezra was, spenkinR—good old Ezra the route eastward Beyond the who was always quick to cover up .Colorado the mouninins should tmburraumenU act b* Uw difficult, tad tfafirt w*r* no big rivers for a long way—until you came to the Rio Grande at Albuquerque. Beyond there, if you could just get through the Sandia Mountains, you had open plateau country, and farther east there would be more and more choice of roads. (You could still find gasoline in drums; that would be no great problem.) Once on the plains, you should be able to get to the Missouri or the Mississippi, and even across those largest rivers; the high steel bridges should still be ip good condition, to judge by the Bay Bridge. When the meeting ended, (he candles were well burned down. The clock pointed to 10 o'clock, although that was only an approximation. (Ish, checked time once in a while by watching the shadow at noon, and the big clock in his living room was considered standard for the community.) • * * 7VTEXT morning Ish went over to talk with Ezra. Before long, more people .came along, and a little group formed, as always happened wheft anybody seemed to be having an interesting con- versatibn. Everybody seemed to agree, in general, that they ought \Q get to work again, but nobody was in a special hurry to begin. At last, however, Ezra and the three younger men with an accompanying rag-tag of little boys and girls moved off to begin work. Only Ish and George were left standing there by Ezra's porch- steps. Ish knew that George was getting ready to say something. Funny, Ish thought, you wouldn't think anyone could pause until he had said something. George paused before he said anything. "Well," said George, and then he paused again. "Well ... I guess I better go get some planks . . . so I can wall in the sides . . . after she gets deeper." "Fine!" said Ish. George at least, Ish knew, would gel the work done. He had carried the habit of work over so strongly from the Old Times that he perhaps could never really play. George went off after his planks, and Ish went to find Dick and Boh, who had been collecting and hnrncssint.' thfl clog tcjims. (To B* OUT OUR WAY By J. R.
