But Michael Morrison dared not Indulge in the luxury. Through bloodshot ej'es he kept vigi! during the black "hours A vigil against the little man in the horn-rimmed glasses and the tall blond m«n who called himself Jack Mosley. Everyone wai to be eyed with suspicion. Dawn. The Stuka» c»m« »nd found them. The turkey ihoot was on again. Seven time< .during the day the group was sighted and seven times they flung themselves to earth.. . and each time they arose and reeled about like punch-drunk flfhten and pushed on The third day found them cowering in > lemon jrov« new • village, sweating out th* daylight hours. A wonderful dau enveloped Mike. He could tee and b* could hear but sounds seemed to come from i treat .distance. He could touch but he was numb to feel- Ing. HP could walk.without (all- ing but had no sense of movement. He could speak but hi* words were Inaudible to him.. He cocked his head and looked down the rows of lemon trees, Sunlight muring through the tree tops crested weird shadows and the shadows flickered under a soft breeie. . ' • ' " \ snfl-lon glint at the edge of tiife grovt some 300 yards away caught his attention. Mike blinked. The glint again — the man's glasses. The figure walked slowly between two rows of trees, hal/ in shadow, half in dancing sunlight- . . A small man—a very small man—and he walked through the shadows toward the group of sleeping soldiers. • • » "WHERE the devil do you think you're going?" the Aussie capU : n said. "Waver," Mike rasped. "I need water. Village . " The captain was about to order him back to the grove. He studied Morrison. The bloke was in wretched condition . worse oB than the rest of his troops. He carried no rations or canteen Perhaps It would be better to let him get some food and water and freshen up. Otherwise they may have to be packing him and he'd slow the whole group down "Very well," the captain said, "but be back in an hour." Mike headed down the path. Mike stepped into a dirt square surrounded by a few dozen white stucco huts. In a moment he was engulfed by a halt hundred peasants, women and little children for the most part He took a Kidskin of water from one of the peasants and the dryness loosened under the cool sweet taste. , A woman shoved a loaf of bread Into his hands and another gave him a cheese. He tore < at the bread and stuffed tt into his mouth and drank som« more of the sweet water. . '• The plane struck; so fast no one heard It coming. It streaked from the sky and roared over the square, Its machine guns ablaze A little girl of about tour lay dead In tin square, clutching a rag doll She had pretty blaok. curls and the held her doll tightly against her. The villagers began to edge back into the square. He could I not face them. He turned and ran past the white huts onto the path. "You there! I've been looking for you." Mike whirled around. A Palestinian sergeant walked up the path to him "The captain sent me for you. We're going to push on." The Palestinian steadied him and helped him back to the lemon grove where the troops were muttering as they struggled into their packs. > • • • A BEAM of sunlight struck Mike's eyes He blinked them open and propped up on his elbows. He pushed aside a branch and saw the fading sun. He had slept most of the day. He removed the kidskln from his shoulder and took a long swallow, then splashed some water over his face. He ate some of the bread and cheese, then gently worked his shoes back onto his feet. , He worked his way through the trees toward the sound as it continued to grow louder and more boisterous. Mike halted at the edge of the woods. Stretched across the shallow beach he saw hundreds of men. Units had been coming through the mountains for this rendezvous all day, he thought. A ship stood offshore, blinking out a message. Mike caught snatche* oL the men's talk. • "Prince Line steamer . . . Aa 8000 tonner , ." The wave of optimism on the beach ebbed into a feeling of uneasiness. An hour later conversation was down to a feeble hum which gradually dwindled to a few suspicious whispers. . . . "The ship's aground on a tand barl" The buzz of voices grew louder and louder and advanced up the bench like a flock of hornets. Through the midnight hours the thread of hope grew thinner and thinner. It became obvtoie even to the moet obstinate that she'd never pull away from the sand bar In time to load a thousand men.
