B.vlTM" P C»Uior«l» with CHAPTER SEVEN When Anna called Kay the morning she was leaving for California, the young executive had spent such a restless night thinking about Jake that she felt as though she had hardly slept at all. But a cup of strong coffee cleared her head, and while she dressed Anna took over the packing job "You should have left it all to me," she grumbled. "Now I don't know what's in and what's out." Oh, i£ we forget anything, they -do have stores in California, you know, Anna," Kay 'teased her. Most people pack as though they were going to a desert island where they couldn't get a thing " "You might have a little difficulty replacing this." Anna held up a belt that matched a dress of intricate material. "True," Kay admitted gaily. She now was beginning to feel a warm glow of excited suspense. She was -rea^dy when David called for her His\chauffeur took her bags; she kissed Anna, leaving quickly so that she couldn't see Anna's tears. . "I'll take good care of her Anna," David assured her, as he shook hands and said goodby. "Anyone would think you were going to Alaska in a canoe," he said with amusement to Kay in the car. "I know. She fusses over me terribly." "I suppose you like it." "Yes, I guess I do. It's nice to have someone who cares that way Anna's really my family." David started to say something, coughed, stopped. They had a perfect day for flying. Arrived, they put in a good week's work in Los Angeles. They both had friends out there, and they had many more invitations than they could possibly accept. With parties every night and work all day, Kay felt like a limp rag by the end of the week. She hadn't had 20 words alone with David. Each breakfasted in his own room, and the rest of the time they had been with other people. David had been polite, courteous and rather distant. On Friday they were to meet for lunch about 1:30. Kay got to the restaurant first and took a quiet table in a corner. She was exhausted and ordered a cocktail. David arrived just as the drink did! "Sorry I'm late," he apologized. He told the waiter to bring him a drink, too. "I've a good excuse though. I've been busy." He looked very pleased with himself. "Doing what?" she asked with a smile. David looked like a boy now. ."Well, I've been thinking that we ve worked hard enough. You've never been out here before. I want you to see something of the country. So instead of flying up to San Francisco, I've hired a car." "Oh, I'd like that." Kay was genuinely taken with the idea. "It will be here soon now," he said, looking at his watch. "In less than an hour, in fact. Can you be ready by then?" "I can pack in 15 minutes The rest depends upon how hungry you are." . "I suggest a sandwich here, and we 11 have a good dinner tonight " ^Where will we be?" she asked. Santa Barbara, one of the very loveliest places in this world." David's whole expression changed. He leaned across the table and put his hand on Kay's. "Wait until you see it. When I'm there I even forget McCIurc's." v Kay gave a quick laugh. 'Is that the ultimate compliment." David withdrew his hand. "Well you know how I feel about that store," he said. "I surely do; I feel the same way myself," Kay added with sincerity. She picked up her handbag and gloves. "Hadn't we belter be off?" I guess \vc should." He called the waiter and paid the check. "See you in half an hour," he said. Kay went to her hotel, asked the cashier to make up the bill and send a boy up for her bags. She "IMS- 600 " By RJ. SCOTT »niueMT, mv idve n±-n_ w itnwAnc. wT DAILY CROSSWORD ACROSS 1. Haze 5.

Yesterday's CryptoqHote: SCIENCE IS TRUE JUDGMENT IN CONJUNCTION WITH REASON--PLATO. MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE hurried so that she'd be ready on time. David hated to be kept waiting. She was traveling light, a requirement of airplane jaunts, so the last bag was snapped shut and locked 10 minutes ahead of time. She wrapped a light turban around her head, put on a pair o£ fresh gloves, looked at herselt quickly in the mirror to make sure that her hair was sleek, her lipstick smooth. The boy came, disappeared with her bags. She was alone in an empty room. "A hotel room stripped of personal, intimate belongings is a horrid cold place," she thought with a shudder. "It's just like my life; the only warmth and feeling come from things completely outside." She wasn't given to self pity, even when the going was tough. But she had a sudden feeling now of chill, of loneliness. She walked nervously across the floor, lit a cigaret, turned her back to the room and stood looking out of the window. She was relieved when the phone rang and the operator told her David was waiting. The huge limousine sped them quickly through the city, up along the coast road. "I have some old friends who live in Santa Barbara. I just called them and they've asked us to stay over night with them. Do you mind?" David asked. "Of course not. But are you sure they want me too. I could easily go to a hotel." "They'd be hurt if you did that. And I'm sure you'll like the Jacksons." Don Jackson, it seemed had roomed with David at college. Polly Barbara was from New York. They had gone to Santa Barbara for their honeymoon and had been there ever since. "They lead a marvelous life, as you'll see. Every time I visit them I leave full of envy." They didn't discuss the Jacksons any further. Kay suspected that David was deliberately not saying too much so that she wouldn't be disappointed. But he needn't have worried. Kay liked Polly the very first moment she saw her. Polly was in the patio when they arrived, and came running through the hall to greet them. The hall ran the whole length ol the house and opened into the garden patio. As Polly entered, she was framed for a few seconds against the background of blue sky and brilliant flowers. She was sunburned deep brown, her short hair was black and curly, she used a giddy scarlet lipstick. The whole effect was picturesque enough to seem almost unreal. David cried, "Hello, darling," and threw his arms around her. "Hello, Miss Stevens," she said to Kay, extricating herselt from David's embrace. She grinned at Kay as they shook hands. "We're delighted to have you. David's mentioned you so often, and Don and I think it's grand we have this chance to know you." "You're most kind to put me up like this," Kay said. "David didn't give you much notice." "David knows we always love to see him, and we don't stand on much ceremony around here, as you'll see." She took them both by the hand. "Come and look at my view, and then I'll show you your rooms." She led them out to the patio. The house was high above the while houses of the town, and beyond was the blue Pacific. It was so startlingly beautiful that everything Kay could think of to say seemed fatuous. She felt that almost anything could happen in a place as breath-taking as this.
