Amon Wimmer of Muskogee began inquiring, and round his 84- year-old brother, W. A. Wimmer. They hadn't seen each other in 65 jears. On the Job GRAND JUNCTION, OOlo.

Estimates Free PH 3 4iei XXVII ITJTHILE the rain continued to " fall, even Daggett found the view depressing and he consented to let Greg close the blinds Rupert, ashamed of his ill humor, made amends, by offering to play cribbage with the old man. Kirby turned to Greg. "I've been trying to figure the pitch," he said in a low tone. "I don't get it." "No pilch," Greg explained in an undertone. "The old man ha? had a touch on the shoulder and he's having a last fling. He's set on going back to the place where he grew up, been trying to screw up his courage for weeks, ever since we started out. Kind of afraid of being disillusioned." "What got you into this?" Kirby asked. "I was fed up with my job," 'Greg said briefly. Kirby ducked his head toward iRupert. "What's he sore about? .Every time I open my mouth he (jumps me." Greg found himself leaping to iRupert's defense. He gave Kirby |D brief outline of Rupert's ex- iperiences with torture, prison, (internment, escape. i "Rupert," he concluded, "is quite a guy. I wouldn't make any bets I could take what he has. So if he gets off the beam now nd then, who's to blame him?" "Smuggled over the border, was he?" Kirby commented thoughtfully. Something in his tone roused Greg to alertness. "If you think," he said evenly, "you are going to come out of your amnesia to find yourself saving America from an enemy alien, you—" Kirby did not quite meet his eyes. "Okay," he said hastily. "It was just an idea." He lighted a cigaret, lazily watching Hannah at work in the kitchen. "The old roan has quite a niece. I could tVlr to know her a lot better." * avoided his eyes. She had taken the cake out of the oven and she was busy icing it, but he saw the blush that was so apparent on her fair skin. He was vaguely aware that Hannah put on her raincoat and went out, saying, "I can't stand being cooped up. I've got to have some fresh air." Greg woke with a start when the door of the trailer opened and Hannah blew in with a gust of rain. "I was about to send out a search party," Daggett told her. trying unsuccessfully to conceal his relief at her return. TTANNAH'S cheeks were glow•*••*• ing and drops of rain were caught in her fair hair. Her eyes seemed bigger and darker than Greg had remembered. "You must be hungry. I'll have dinner ready as soon as the popovers are done." "You won't get dinner," Daggett said firmly, "until you have changed your clothes. You are wet to the knees. What did you do? Fall in a puddle?" "The water is deep in the park," Hannah explained. "About a foot, I guess." "It couldn't be! Even a rain like this—" "Oh, it's not just the rain," she explained. "The brook has overflowed and the whole park is flooded." Greg was on his feet, jerking his zipper jacket out of > cupboard. "Of all the lame brains! Why didn't you have i«n« enough to come straight back and tell me? Don't wait to change now. Get ready to roll!" "Where are you going?" Daggett called as Greg started tor the door. 'I'm going to get us out of here." Wind and rain beat at him M he unfastened the water and electric attachments. With his usual care he had automatically before and the water had not yet reached the bottom of the trailer. He waded around the car, backed it up, went into the water again to remove the front jack so that the coupling of the trailer dropped into place. Then he went in to pick up Daggett in his arms. Hannah flung a blanket over the old man and Greg eased out of the doorway, down the steps, and splashed his way through the water to the car. He put Daggett down on the front seat. Slowly he pulled out of the mud, the wheels caught on harder ground, strained up a hill and emerged from the water. He brought it to a halt. "Hadn't we better keep going?" Kirby asked. "No," Greg snapped, "we can't go until those dopes back there v.'ake up to what is happening." He pocketed a flashlight and ducked into the darkness and the pouring rain. • * • YS7HEN he returned to the trail* er nearly an hour later, drenched to the skin, chilled, his knuckles grazed, his muscles sore, he grunted in answer to Daggett's unspoken question. 'One of them had put his trailer down in the lowest spot and w« had a time with it The other guy couldn't get his car started. But they are okay now." 'Change your clothes, Greg," Hannah said. "Dinner's hot but the popovers fell. We'll eat a» soon as you are ready." Daggett, his eyes sparkling ta his dead face, ate heartily. H« was, Greg realized with suspicion, Inordinately pleased about something. Hannah bustled around washing dishes and getting ready to move on. Greg wanted to reach out, t» touch her. He wanted to say, "I'm sorry. I never meant to hurt you." But his native caution stopped him. Better say nothing at all Th* only thing h« wa« sure of was that he was not in lov« with her. She was not hit type, not the girl he dreamed of. not the girl who had first e»P- turcd his Imagination and M whose prototype h« had b«n faithful, In his fashion.
