He glanced once toward the liquor shelf and when he saw that it was empty he smiled and devoted himself to his meal as though he expected it to be his last. When he had finished, he said with the overemphasis that Greg so disliked, "I am warm. 1 am safe. I am fed. 1 do not want to move from this spot. Ever." Then he laughed and sprang to his feet. "And now," he said gaily, "I will wash the dishes." Greg/ who had intended to assign this task to him, felt a trifle let down. As soon as the dishes were put away, Rupert crawled into the upper bunk and fell into a heavy sleep. "Exhaustion," Daggett explained, "and malnutrition. And for some people sleep, like alcohol, blnnks out what they lack the courage to face," • "Cheaper, too. Pity he doesn't stick to it." . '. There was a.quizzical expression around Daggett's eyes. Intolerance that was so dogmatic should be outlawed in anyone over 23, he thought. He said aloud, "You don't like him." . . "I can't figure him out." "He may surprise you." "That," Greg admitted, "is v.'l-nt I'm afraid of."

Rupert pulled a key from his pocket, tossed it up in the air and caught it with a dexterous flick of his wrist. The car struck a bump and the key was jarred out of his hand. He scrambled around until he found it "Looking for a house that will Rupert slipped the key Into his pocket. "There is no house that • * * TT was not until they reached a 1 small industrial town that the alien was interested in his surroundings. "This is America," he declared. "Standard brand," Greg said. "Uglier than most." "Ugly, yes, but It it alive, young, thrusting ahead into the future, believing that there will be a future. To a European that is t miracle in which no man dares believe," His harsh voice was momentarily, drowned out by the shrill noon whistle of a factory, the siren of an ambulance, the tooting of horns "It is full of contradictory thylhmt and cacophony like a Stravinsky ballet." "Nothing here but box factories," Greg pointed out. "Why not boxes? Boxes to carry all the things in the advertisements. Think of boxes that way. Carrying furs to New England and beach umbrellas to Florida. I used to read American advertisements and dream—" "O! Florida beaches?" "Of merchandising methods," Rupert said in a tone of such ecstasy that Daggett let out a blast of delighted laughter. Rupert turned to look at him. "Do you realize what that means? That people believe that they will be here tomorrow and next year; that the furniture will be used in a house with four walls and a root, a house thai will Hand Th* dispoueued de not buy, Mr. Daggett. They have no place to put their purchases. I like advertising. It means a kind of faith that seems fantastic and wonderful to me. Some day, il I am not told to move on—" for all his lack of stress he made th* contingency seem wildly improbable—"! am going to take a product and make millions of people want it, make them feel they cannot be happy without it." "And suppose they can't aftord it?" Greg insisted. • a * SC (~\F course," Rupert agreed. "So the mama says, 'I must have it,' and the papa works harder and makes more money So he can buy it for mama and there is more business for everyone." "So what?" Greg said sourly. "I thought," Rupert lamented, "you were more enterprising. Take this town. It is dynamic and you complain because it is not pretty." "You had better take a closer look at it I've got to stock up on food; suppose you come alone and carry bundles." There was an electric silence and then Rupert inquired, "Will they ask for my papers?" "Why should they?" Rupert swaggered down th* street beside Greg, wearing on* t ot Daggett's haU at a jaunty ; angle and wrapped in an overcoat that belonged to the old man. It fitted his bony frame like a blanket The effect should have been ludicrous, but he draped the coat over his shoulders like a cape and managed to invest it with a certain rakish grace. Rupert looked like a swashbuckling character airtight out of Dumai and he Invested his movements with old-world glamor, while h« thirsted after American roots. In the middle of the street a policeman wai directing traffic. Greg grasped Rupert's ar.n. and started toward him. Under his hand he felt the thin arm grow rigid.
