For the first couple of hours, Greg had been vaguely aware that there were more cars on the road than usual, but now there was a steady line of traffic and he slowed down. "What have you got into? Daggett demanded impatiently. "I don't know. According to the map, there is nothing special ahead. We may run out of this soon." "Always in a hurry to move on," Rupert commented. "And to think that you like it. Sometimes I believe you are the youngest of us." "Don't say that," Daggett protested. "It makes me feel so old to have people tell me how young I am. It's the last step before senility. Dawdling makes me nervous, that's all. And especially on a road like this where there is nothing to see." "You hold your horses," Greg called over his shoulder. Then his eyes were caught by a roadside sign and he began to laugh. "Oh, Forrestville. Of course. I should have remembered. They always have big doings in April. We are on our way to a local celebration. An annual affair that has gone on beyond the memory of man," "But why at this season? Only hardy idiots like ourselves visit Mnine for pleasure in April. It won't thaw out here for another six weeks." "Anniversary of the founder's birth,* Greg explained. "They have horse racing and parachute drops during the day and a carnival at night." "How do you know all this? 1 Daggett asked. "I was born in Maine." "I didn't know that." "Well," Greg pointed out reasonably, "after all, I had to be born somewhere." Greg, lorced down lo 20 miles an hour, bad leisure to look around him. The small boy he had been careened down the road ahead of him on the bicycle his father had got him for Christmas. Carefree childhood — that was supposed to be the time of times, the pinnacle of happiness. But I can't, Greg ruminated, remember being conscious of happiness; I was always too busy, too interested, too absorbed in whatever I was doing. HE bicycle and roller skates and a sled. Somehow he had them, however small the earnings from his father's pharmacy. Small, Greg remembered, because his lather did not collect from the needy. How exasper- tled his mother had been! Prosperity had mellowed her, relaxed ier, brought out an unexpected sweetness in her nature, made ier lovely to look at. But his 'ather—Greg tried to see him through adult eyes. It was, he hought, very difficult to see one's parents as people. For the first ime it occurred to him that his ather*s quietness had been neither patience nor resignation; t had beta the deep-rooted serenity of fulfillment. He had adored his wife and liked his work. He had found living rich and good. Why, Greg discovered with a shock of surprise, my ather was a success, really a success, not because he conquered life but because he accepted it on its own terms, At a park on the outskirts of own, Grcf unhooked the trailer | and the three men drove slowly into Forrestville. Forrestville was neither a picturesque village nor a thriving factory town. It was old, its houses wcatherbeaten and unpainted, with an air of hard work and dogged survival about them- Daggett was having the time of his life and to Greg's surprise he suggested, "There's a hotel of sorts. Let's lunch there for a change." * * * THHE hotel lobby was uninviting, With linoleum on the floor and a pot-bellied stove in the middle of the room. Greg led the way to a corner table in the dining room where Daggett could sit with his back to the room. Not until they were seated did he notice with foreboding the three rowdies at the next table who were annoying the waitress, raw-boned girl with a plain face flushed from exertion and suppressed anger, trying to serve them and at the same time to avoid their impertinent hands. Rupert innocently precipitated the trouble. When the waitresi came to take their order he remarked, "A nice girl should not be pestered by hoodlums." She shook her head warningly. "What'll you have to start: clam chowder or vegetable soup?" Sh# lowered her voice. "One of them Is the boss' nephew." The three at the next table were silent and the waitres* scurried off. When she returned with their order, Rupert smiled at her. From the next table cam* a snicker. ' "That guy's making time with your girl, Sam." Greg recognized Sam'i type, the kind who seems to be permanently conditioned by his Commando training. Whatever r orce might have slanted back nis brow, it was the army that had taught him all the secret* of fighting; he was spoiling to make use of his knowledge. He ookcd from Rupert to Greg and ,hcn his eyes rested on Daggett'* twisted face. "Now I've «en everything, Joe." Greg felt his stomach muaclv ifhten. For the Squirrels SACRAMENTO, Calif. WPj—One of Arllne Gillam's earrings dropped off as she ran for a bus. A squirrel in Capitol Park grabbed the earring, ran up a tree and paid no attention when Mrs. Gillam pleaded for him to drop it.
