Her accidental eavesdropping brings her a $250 monthly job as Murray's secretary. Visiting Nan; Parkson, political hostess/Gale is bumped into a swimming pool by Marie Gibbins, deprived of her job by Gale. Joe Nash/ Governor McKurth's handsome secretary, rescues her. Later, Murray is furious when he finds Gale going through his: secret files, but his ire vanishes and he insists she accept an apartment, adjoining his, rent. tree, as he sometimes works at night and wants her within call. Playing bridge at the Parkson home, Gale wins $40 as partner to Cedric Golburn, powerful lobbyist who has gain if Murray's bill is passed. Opposing them are the men who were discussing the bill with Murray, Assemblyman Tom Olmstead. and Jim Drake, corporation representative. In the privacy of Nan's boudoir, when Gale tells her hostess she likes to play bridge with Colburn, Nan. retorts: "I'm afraid there isn't much you could do about it if you didn't. He's a stubborn man. Perhaps that's, why he's gone so far." Returning to the living room, Gale overhears Colburn marveling over her and saying "... a smart girl like this one could turn the trick . . ." Next night, Gale dines with Senator Murray. Suddenly, an intoxicated Colburn appears and asks her tq dance. "Why certainly," says Murray, as though it were a special privilege he alone could bestow. CHAPTER NINE To Gale, it was a now Colburn, a man 'so different from the silent .one she had'forc, that if she had closed her eyes she wouldn't have recognized him. He was talkative of all things. He_ told her*.how he admired her beauty, "her; card .playing, h'er smartness and then he \vent farther thiari'h'e would over have gone had ', he been-sober. Of this she was.cer- -tain: '''•• ''•-"' : '•; '•"' Colburn,• the 'lobbyist,, told her that she could go a/long way—with him,, that.the monopoly, .bill was.his, baby, and that-he would win. lie always won.. He, Colburn, was the. greatest man in the Legislature,even though.he was not "in" it • He said.more, too, about;his background, how he had risen from a nothing to a somebody, but that he was -still despised by even the men he made and that, some day, h would show them. Gain tried to, quiet him, but th music played ' on and Colbun at a crazy angle. She seemed to be dashing through a nightmare. As she became aware of it, she realized suddenly that she was shivering, that she was chilled through. She hailed a passing cab and directed the driver to hei^apartment. Hot coffee was what she-wanted most. She tossed a dressing^ cape over her shoulders and went into her kitchen to brew the coffee while her mind brewed on that one question: "What shall I do?" The buzzer sounded and iri a minute, Senator Murray, carrying her wrap, gloves and purse, stood before her door. "Oh," she said, "thank you!" And took the things from him. "Why run out. on mo?" There was part of-it, no. matter how part might be. I remembered hear- • ing the first day I came to your, office— " - •'-••-"•. '•'" "Then you did hear?" Murray interrupted. "Yes, I heard, but it didn't mean x anything to mo then. I didn't re»li*e. that you were-violating: your oath of office for money." There was a silence, while/ he rubbed his... palms together and looked at the floor. % . • • ; Vlt-is a difficult thing: to explain to you."- Jeff rose to his^feet and paced tho floor... ^'Please understand that my bill does not hurt any of my -, constituents, or I wouldn't have introduced, it.

Finally he described Seriatoi Murray as a ."numbskull" going to become a wealthy man because he Colburn, had arranged it. He said the. monopoly bill would make Murray -this, attorney in charge of one of the world's -largest companies with' ah enormous annual retainer . And then the music ended anc he . took her back to her table, •thanked her, hiccoughed and went away. • . Murray could think of nothing to say, under the circumstances, and •when, the music started again, he .asked dance. . She accepted. But she was sick at. heart—sick that' she had .ever come in contact with such people. She followed Murray's steps auto. matically and then—suddenly—she left a bewildered senator standing in the midst of'the dance floor as she. fled-toward.the cool-, clean night nir. Gale's mind was in top much'of a turmoil to heed the fact that she was walking unescorted along the sidewalks, in a most incongruous man- oAi-—her wide-brimmed straw flying have expect.ed; only a question. "I couldn't stand it," she answered simply, still not conscious that she was keeping him.standing in the hall. "May I come in ?" he asked. . 'Certainly," she said, and stood aside for him to enter, He tossed his hat and coat, upon the chesterfield and seated himself in an upholstered chair, ^ "Tell me about it," he asked. "There isn't much to. tell. Per haps I was silly, but, Colburn toll me tliat you had introduced 1 the monopoly bill because it would ge you a position as an attorney for phi of tho largest companies in" the world." She looked at him for verification and he nodded Ins .head.' "My idea," she continued, "had always been that legislators vvcre elected to represent the people in ;heir districts and not simply- to 'eather their own nests. -Perhaps '. had the wrong idea." She .waited for him to answer. "Go on," was all he said. somehow or other, I-.sud- Icnly became sorry that I. was any assemblymen is small — too.;J5mall 3 to attract men who iii'e; cap Although the background for this story is authentic, the story itself is entirely fictional and, the characters are imaginary."
