There was much singing and sky-larking of the youngsters. It was a time of celebration. There was much excitement, but the boys gradually got their story told. Out of Los Angeles, the boys • had taken 66 eastward, just as Ish j remembered so vividly he had done in the days following the Great Disaster, when he had not been much older than the boys were now. The highway across the desert was easy and open, except for an occasional stretch where sand had blown across. They had gone along with no more trouble than blowouts here and there. The Colorado River bridge they had found shaky, but still passable. The next community was apparently at one of the old Indian TH ABIDES by GEORGE R. STEWART ....-toht 1W? bf G«,ot *. StBTOrt.

"Did you ever see the big brown ones with humps on their shoulders?" asked Ish. "Yes, once we saw a few of them," said Dick. "How a b'.o u t the grass? It points direction—" And he looked at Ish for the word. "Yes. a compass," said Ish. "We hadn't needed one before, but now we used it and got going east again, until we came to the riven we couldn't cross." Ish figured out quickly that it might have been the Wabash, Floods of 22 years, or—more likely—just one great flood, had swept away the bridges. The progress eastward had become more and more laborious. Somewhere, probably near Toledo, they had turned back. At , turning back, a kind of panic came ny of it grow straight and stiff upon thcm .

At that boys' description, Ish concluded l more often, since they had come rate, there should be several dozen that the dominant spirit must be Indian, because their pattern of life was based on growing corn and beans as the Pueblo Indians had done for many hundreds of years. Only some of the oldir people talked English. This community also had drawn inward upon itself, and looked with suspicion upon the strangers. The people there had horses. They did to the wetter country with ranker and faster growth and heavier rains, combined with hard frosts in winter. The highways were splitting up into great chunks and blocks as the frost worked under them, and even bushes and young trees were springing up to block the way. "We came to the big river," said Bob.

"It's like 68, only just part of it," He paused, hesitant. Ish thought lor a minute, and then realized that the boy was trying to do- scribe Highway 6. Bob had sensed streets. People, with the whole in the area of the whole United States. He remembered the Negroes whom he had seen in Arkansas, long ago. The dancing and shouting of the children around the fire had become even more bacchanalian. In the excitement the older boys, even some of the married ones, were joining the revel. They were playing crack-the-whip, til the more exciting because the one who was thrown off the end of the whip had to dodge the fire. Suddenly Ish felt himself stiffen.
