June 15. (UP>— The House yesterday passed and sent to tile Senate a compromise bill to provide better than $500,- I 000.000 for (he Agriculture Dcpait-' Wfnt in the (iscal year starting July 1, The measure carried $545,000.000 when It was first passed by the '; House but the Senate lipped this to £$680,000.000. The compromise ver- '•fron just about split the difference. Before okaying the compromise measure the House voted to authorize »262,500,000 for the formulation and development of a 1949 agricultural conservation program. These funds would go lo farmers Jor following certain conservation I practices. Originally the house set a ceiling of »225,000,000 on the program but the Senate boosted it to J300000,- 000. .

She would come home from work and make a listless effort to oal her supper, help with I lie dishes as usual, and .sit down with a book or her sewing. But her thoughts were not upon the book. She would drop the sewing in her lap and stare vacantly across the room at nothing in particular. Her gray-blue eyes mirrored alarm when Jessica asked her one evcnnitj, "What's wrong with you, Lucy?" "Wrong?" She tried to speak briskly, picked up her sewing, a dress she was rr king for BiMsy, and began to work with almost feverish activity. "What could be wrong?" she demanded. Mrs. Blake came in from the kitchen and sat down near them. She .said, "She's worn out waiting on Betsy. It isn't her place to lake so much responsibility. When I had children—" bucy spoke mildly but firmly. "When you had children the situation was entirely dillcrent. Mother. You had a husband in the home who could help you." Mrs, Blake paid "no attention to her daughter but went on to i j eulogize Genevieve instead. How " capable, such a good girl and so helpful. "1 really don't know hem 1 could have managed this pasi year without her," she observed and, although she did not look up Jessica felt her mother-in-law's hard eyes fastened accusing^ upon her. Finally, Mrs. Blake, receiving no response from Lucy, and nc evidence that her baiting wouk bring a retort from Jessica, got up and returned to the kitchen. • • • T UCY dropped her sewing as the J kitchen door closed behind her BW|.

"Look—why docs your mother h.ile me, Lucy?" Lucy's work slid from her tap :o the floor. She stooped and Irieved it, removed her thimble and sluck her needle into her thread before she answered. "Mother's biUer." she said slowly. "She's always been like Hi;U—hating someone. I think she despised my father. He liked to laugh have fun. Mother taught us ihat pleasure was a sin. 1 grew up thinking of only one thing—what I must do or not do to go to heaven. Now, I wonder—" She broke ofT and her eyes shifted .way from Jessica's as she went on hastily. "I shouldn't say thai 1 try to do what is right." Jessica swung her chair aboul and caxight Lucy's slender fingers "You're too good, Lu," she said impulsively. "You should have a life of your own, marry, have i husband." The color flooded Lucy's deli cate skin. "I'll never marry," sh' said bitterly. "I'll live here wit, Mother until I'm pensioned. I'l be like those horrible old majd who become queer!" She coverec her face with her hands. She was crying. Lucy crying 1 . "You'll tie nothing of the kind, Jessica assured her. "You're swee and lovely, Lucy. All that stiff ness i£ a sham.

"Would you like o walk over to Gcnevievc's, -Uuy," she nsked, "rtnd sec if he cnn help me tomorrow evc- iing with my jelly? I've never iocn a girl so capable as Gcnn- vieve." She rambled on, bnt Jessica rose and said: "Want me (o go with i'Ou, Lu?" "Will you?" When they were outside together walking down the street, Jessica took Lucy's arm. She said, "I want to tell you something. Snme- ihing which may upset you, but I think you should know." Lucy said, "It's about David Gregory, i?nH il?" "He is in your office?" .:• "Yes. Of course, 1 seldom see him, for I'm in another office, but he has frequent conferences with Mr. Linlon." Lucy knew a David Jessica had never seen. Jessica thought of how little she knew of David except their meetings. She felt a stab of uneasiness. Once before she had been tricked by*ardor and infatuation. Was she weak and starved for afTection and consequently vulnerable when she had met David Gregory?
