STEWART xxxv ,'SM eould see that Jack was •* pleased with himself, and liked to talk. He, at least, had imagination. ' "Yes," the young man continued, "I have an idea. Our Old Ones— they • were the Americans—made the houses and the bridges and the little round things that we hammer out lor arrowheads. But .those others—the Old Ones of the Old Ones—perhaps they made the •bills and the sun, and the Amer- cans themselves." Then, though it was a cheap trick to play on the young man, Ish could not resist talking in double meaning. "Yes," he said, "I have heard, it said that those older Old Ones produced the Americans—but I rather doubt that they made the hills'and the sun." Though he could not have understood, perhaps the young man caught the irony in the tone, and so said nothing. "But, go on," Ish continued then. "Tell me more about the arrow-heads themselves." "Yes, about the arrowheads," the young man said, hesitating a moment, and then regaining confidence. "The red are good for .shooting cattle and lions. The white are for deer and other game." "Why is that?" Ish asked sharp,., ly, for he felt his old-time ration- "jalism stirring at the thought of all " -"such magic and hocus-pocus. The ^"question, however, seemed • only \.''tc surprise and confuse the young man. "How would anyone know why? Except you yourself, Ishl This matter of the red and white arrowheads Is merely something that is." He hesitated, and then the sunlight seemed to catch his attention. "Yes, it is like the sun that keeps on going round the earth, but naturally no one knows why, or asks why." Ish said nothing more about tht matter, and smiled at the young man reassuringly, and looked again at the arrow. Another thought came to him, and he asked: "Can you always find plenty of those little round things?" The young man laughed merrily, as if this were a strange question. "There are so many that if all of us spent all our time pounding out arrowheads, still we should never run short." Ish considered. Yes, that was probably true. Even if there were a hundred men in The Tribe by now, there must be thousands and thousands of coins readily to be found in tills and cash boxes, even in this one corner of the city. And if the coins should be exhausted there woxild be thousands ol miles of copper telephone wire. When he had first made an arrow, he recollected, he had imagined that The Tribe would revert to stone arrowheads. Instead they had taken a short cut, and were already fashioning metal. So perhaps civilization wodld return. This Jack, who was of the First Ones, must be Ish's great grandson in the male line, and he was also Em's great grandson. So, as Ish looked, his heart yearned outwards, and he asked a strange question: "Young man," h« said, "are you hsppy?" The young man named Jack looked startled at this question, and he glanced In both directions bclore answering, and then he spoke. "Yes, I am happy. Things arc as they are, and I am part of them." O NE morning months later Ish awoke with a great shock. A« he focused his old eyes, he saw that the person who was shaking him was the young man named Jack, and that Jack's face was tense with fear. "Get up! Get up quick!" Jack wai laying. With the shock of the iudden awakening, Ish's mind reacted faster. He moved quickly, mlling on some clothes. Jack lelped him. Just as they reached the sidewalk, the thick clump of under- irush around the next house to the lorth suddenly went up in a roar if flame. They came to two other young Tien who were standing there look- ng at the approaching flames. Then Ish remembered. "My hammer!" he cried out 'Where is my hammer?" • • * THEN he wai amazed to tee what a tremendous impression his words had made upon the three young men. They looked at each other ai .if they were panic stricken. Suddenly, Jack dashed jack toward the house, even though the bushes in the garden Itself were now beginning to smoke. "Come back! Come back!" Ish called after him, but his voice was not very strong, and he was half choking on account of the smoke. This was a terrible thing, Ish was thinking to himself, that Jack should be burned in the flre about such a small matter as a hammer. Then Jack came running out His lion-skin cloak was tinged, and he himself was rubbing* at some burns where iparkt had fallen on him. Otherwise he wai not hurt. The other young men seemed relieved that he was carrying the hammer in his hand. Even though the young men helped him, Ish was very tired when they got to the lately of the rocki. Yes, he thought, It Is now the dry autumn, and the time of bad flres because of dry north winds. And this li the autumn following that summer when I first came to, know Jack, and talked to him about the arrowheads. Since then Jack has been the one who h«i chiefly taken care of me, at The Tribe at its meeting had undoubtedly ordered, him to do. After all, I am a god. No, 1 am not « god. But perhaps I am the mouthpiece of a god. No, I know that I am not that cither. But at least they give me care, and I have comfort, because I am the last American. <T» B* CoaclMl**) Television— Tonire, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis, Channel 5 THURSDAY NIGHT, MAY 30 6:00 Qroucho Marx 6:30 Unexpected 7:00 Dragnet 7:30 Theatre 8:00 Martin Kan* 8:30 Godfrey »:00 My Little Margie 9:30 News 9:45 Tonight in Sport* 9:55 Weather 10:00 Playhouse of Stars 10:30 Ken Murray 11:00 News 11:05 Club Embassy 11:20 It's News To Me 11:50 News 11:55 Sign Off FRIDAY, MAY 1 6:45 Morning Meditation 7:00 Today 7:26 News 7:30 Today 7:55 News 8:00.Ding Dong School 8:30 Prologue to Future 9:00 TV Shopper 9:30 Strike It Rich 10:00 Beth Marsh 10:15 Love of Life 10:30 Search for Tomorrow 10:45 To Be Announced 11:00 Storyland 11:15 Ouidlng Light 11:30 Garry Moore 12:00 News 12:15 Farmers Program 12:30 Homemakers Program 1:00 Big Payoff 1:30 Welcome Traveler! 2:00 Kate Smith 3:00 Hawkins Falls 3:15 Qabby Hayes 3:30 Howdy Doody 4:00 Berl Olswanger 4:30 Industry On Parade 4:45 Hartoons 5:00 Flicker Comici 5:15 News 5:26 Weather 5:30 Eddie Fisher 5:45 News Caravan 6:00 Dennis Day •6:30 Life of alley 7:00 Big Story 7:30 Hopalong Cassldy 8:00 Cavalcade of Sports 8:45 Greatest Flghta 9:00 Th« Doctor 9:30 News 9:45 Tonight In SporU »:55 Weather 10:00 Names The Same 10:30 To Be Announced 11:00 News 11:05 To Be Announced 11:35 To Be Announced 12:05 News 12:10 Sign Off WHEN YOU THINK OF THINK or UNITED INSURANCE AGENCY Leading lefal reserre, «ld-Une companies, approved by ever; •late In tht Union and Cs>uita.
