Jt was a relief to pour out her bewilderment to the other girl who listened gravely and then tossed .side her eigaret and said, "You've ftad a tough break but there's no solution that 1 see but to put it squarely tip to Torn. Either that or leave Akron and go back to Kentucky," "That would be running away, wouldn't it?" "That's up to you," said Doris. "My lather won't take me back.' "Do you want to go?" **I haven't the chance," said Jea- iica evasively. Doris said, "Maybe you want to run away from something more than a mother-in-law." H e r shrewd haze] eyes fastened upoi Jessica's downcast face. "What do you mean?" M I saw you come home a week or two ago in that swanky road' Bter with David Gregory." "You know him?" Doris shrugged. "Would he know me? He's a new man at th plant and comes through the fac lory occasionally. He was an ac pilot in the first years of the war He's an authority on synthetic now and Hugh Linton's righl-han man. Gels a huge salary and live at a downtown club. Any thin else?" "I'm not interested in him." "Then you're the exception, fo plenty of girls are. M Jessica explained, "I've met hi: twice. He talked to me at the air port and 1 met him again at th Mayflower one afternoon and h insisted upon bringing me home. Doris sat staring thoughtfully cross the street. "The Blakes now about him? M "There's nothing to know. Lucy as properly shocked, but every- hing shock* Lucy. She never ooks at a man except her em- loyer." • • • » ~\ORIS mad« no comment and shortly afterward Jessica left, she found Lucy just returning ram the office looking drawn and Laggard. She Defused the supper essica offered to prepare for her. She said, 'Where's Mother?" "Gone to a church meeting. Bety's in bed and asleep and 1 went across and talked to Doris for & ew momenfs." I can't understand your inheres' n that girl." Lucy took off her itain felt hat and ran her fingers hrough her blond hatr and loosened it. Jessica stood watching her. How ovely Lucy could b« if she'd only .ry. Something of this colored hei lone as she said, "You can't under stand anything but working like a slave for a man who probably doesn't appreciate what you do. 1 Lucy whirled. "But he does Hugh Linton took me in to worl for him when I was inexperience and he held just a minor positio at the factory. That was fou years ago. He says that he owi much of his present success to m efficiency, and I owe him every thing. .., ." Her voice broke ^e sarfK into a chair and leane her head against the back an closed her eyes. Then she sat u and said apologetically, *'I didn mean to seem abrupt, but my jo means everything to me. Mr. Lin ton has been liberal, as you mu know, for my salary helps to kec this home. Mother had only tiny income from an insurant policy my father left her. N "What was he like?" asked Je ska curiously. "My father?" Lucy atare thoughtfully at her clasped hanc 'ii't think he WUE any success. ; was lazy. He worked at dl(rent jobs, as 1 remember, and en became a city fireman." Sin miled faintly. "As far back aj can remember, Mother always itcucd for the fre siren, and •en ytl she has a passion for at- nding fires. It seems silly, doesn't , when she's so strong-minded t\d emotionlessT « • • ArTY father was killed In a flr« downtown. 1 was only 12 ears old and Tom was 14. Tom worked after school at odd Jobs ntil he was old enough to go nto the factories. Mother went to •oik by the dny and 1 look care f children nights. You wouldn't ndcrsland a life like tliat, would on?" Jessica shook lior head. Lucy went on, "Mother and Tom Tovided the money for my busi- icss course because they didn't want me to go into the rubber aclorics. When Mr. Linlon gave me a position as Ilia secretary 1 was proud." Work and save. That had been Jcy's life. Jessica rose impulsively and kissed tier. She said >riskly, "Nevertheless, there are imits to what any girl should do [or her family, Lucy." ^ She went downtown the next ilny, leaving Betsy with Doris, and :old the jeweler with whom she had led her ring that she had decided to sell it. He smiled, well pleased. He said, "Mr. Linton will be delighted. He is quite determined to have the ring." "Mr. Linton?" she asked. "Hugh Linlon. He's an executive in one of the rubber plants and a very good customer." Jessica didn't want that ttiin- lipped arrogant man with the cold light eyes to possess her mother's ring. She concealed her astonishment that he and Lucy's employer were the same. Stic debated whether to tell Lucy thnt she had seen Hugh Linton. But then if she discussed Hugh Linton with Lucy, she would have to divulge the possession of the money brought from the ring's sale; and for the present she determined to kcey thai money a secret.
