To Walk The Night By William Sloane XXII TWHILE Jerry and Selena were still away on their wedding trip I rented a two-room apartment (or myself farther uptown. For a lime, at least, they planned to live in our old place, and I spent a good deal of time down there getting il ready for their return, I must admit that there was •n element of selfishness in all this. I-wanted Selena, in particular, to be in my debt; it gave me t sensation of nobility to bury my personal feelings and think of her and Jerry's pleasure and comfort • The whole performance was a piece of self- dramatization, but they got the benefit of H and it was harmless, So far I haven't mentioned the letter I had from Jerry. It was as reserved and noncommittal as all his letters, but I could read between the lines that he was nappy. At any rate, it was rather a pointless letter except for a postscript: "P. S. Have you heard anything more from Parsons? I suppose he hasn't made any progress? There's not much American news in the paper down here," So far as I knew he hadn't reached any solution. I hadn't seen him again myself, but Dr. Lister went down one day to New Zion. On the way home he dropped in st my new apartment —one cold February evening ft was—and we had a drink to- Rcthcr. He told me where he had been. "Did Fflrsor.s have anything now to contribute?" I asked him. He shook his head. "No, I don't believe he knows any more now than when he started on the case." 1 wasn't so sure of that. Offhand I could think of one discovery of his, Luclla Jamison, I wanted to find out whether Parsons had mentioned anything about Luella to Dr. Lister. "What is he working on now?" "That I don't know." He went on, & little embarrassedly, I thought "When this engagement of Jerry's came up, I wrote Parsons." "Oh," I Mid. 1 didn't know that" "Parsons told me then that he could guess whjr I was writing to him. He assured me that so far they wore fairly positive that Mrs. LeNormand was not implicated. He said that she had a perfect alibi personally, and there was ho evidence to show she was an accessory before the Tact" He smiled grimly. "He also remarked that there was no evidence that she was not." "That was just official caution." • • * I HAD hoped to grow to like Selena as I came to know her better. But it just didn't happen, though I learned to admire her in certain ways. She had a quiet self-control that made any open break impossiblt A* time went on, I found il easier to be with her because I finally discarded Parsons' thought that she might be Luclla Jamison. She knew too much, her mind was too clear and logical, she was too full of information about the most abstract subjects ever to have been an idiot. Watching her, I came to the conclusion that she had had a long and exceedingly thorough education. That .alone could account for the way she could talk to Jerry and Dr. Lister about astronomy, or mathematics, or archaeology. It might, loo, account for her almost gauche in- scnsitivity to the prejudices and peculiarities of the people around her. Wherever the came frgrn. she had been educated in an atmosphere of objective intellectuality, and her interests molded in ways unlike those of most other women. Then I would remember the way she danced, and not be so sure. When she was at the house, she spent a lot of time reading every conceivable sort of book. But she never learned the easy give-amd-take that lubricates human relationships. She could talk well on many subjects, but she never seemed able to converse. Every sentence was a statement or a question. She seldom laughed, but she did have a silent sense of humor. I remember one night when we had all been sitting in the library. AFTER a time we fell to playing bridge in a desultory sort of way. Grace was out at the house that weekend, and Jerry and I had been playing against Selena and her. Selena wai the most astonishing bridge player I ever met. She never seemed to lose an unnecessary trick, and though occasionally a, finesse of hers would go wrong, I noticed that when it did she always smiled in that little private way of hers. After an hour or two We decided to stop. Grace, who had b«n keeping score, had no trouble adding up Jerry's and mj side of the ledger, but the entries In tht female column were staggering. Suddenly Selena leaned forward, picked the score pad but from under Grace's nose, glanced at it casually for a moment, and remarked, "Three thousand eight hundred and sixty." Jerry took up the pad after her while Grace simply sat looking astounded and relieved. After a minute or so he said, "That's right," with a note of puzzled admiration in his voice. Jerry was exceptionally quick with figures himself, which was why he was such an asset to his firm of statisticians. ''You're quite » lightning calculator," he observed. She simply went on smiling Mshtly and impersonally, (To Be Continued) EASTMAN KODAKS Movie Cameras KIRBY DRUG STORES Guaranteed Watch Cleaning .50 36 Hour Service 3 Your watch is completely dii- asscmbled—all pivots polished —springs adjusted and machine cleaned. chronographs nncl Automiitic* not Included at this tow price Thompson Jewelers 114 W.
