MULLINS&SON Ph. 3-4779 Day or Night XXIV "OIDING home that afternoon, I - thought to myself that I had never before spent a day alone with a person and learned so Jittle about them. My stock of small talk had run out, and 1 was isimply driving along the turn- .pike, watching the road and the other cars and thinking a little, when Selena reached forward suddenly and ratched up the emergency. Instantly the car began to skid; the tires screamed on the asphalt, and I had the devil of a time keeping us from turning turtle. In the middle ot m,, struggle with the wheel a bright yellow roadster full of prep school kids fihot out of a narrow drive in jfront of us and swerved roaring down the highway. They must have missed our front bumper by inches. I unlocked the emergency and we rolled on; sweat was running off me in rivulets. It was the closest call I ever had in my life; undoubtedly Selena's quick yank on the brake had saved us from an ugly smash. As I thought of it I realized that the road down which the yellow car had come was entirely hidden from the highway by a stone wall and a belt o( trees. There was no way I could have known that 'that car was coming. I said to Selena, who was sitting perfectly quietly beside me: ''Thanks! That was too close. I can still hear the angels singing." She nodded quk-l'y. "There was no way you could sec the road." '' "No," I agreed "Kids! Their parents oughtn't to give them cars." She was silent, and • belated question came into my mind. "How did you know they v. :i P coming?" H L—wJmt M it Jerry »*>*?—! had a hunch." And she smiled. It had seemed that she had acted with amazing directness for a woman with only a hunch. * * * THE months that followed flowed into one another without anything of importance to this story. I was getting on well in my work, and devoting more and more time to it in consequence. I saw less of Jerry and Selena that winter than I had cApcv.-i.od to, and I could see, when we did meet, that Jerry was delighted with my progress and puzzled by it. He himself was not deeply interested in the statistical work I was doing, though I understand he did it brilliantly. On several occasions he told me that most of it bored him. He admitted he put in as little time at his office as he could, and I wondered if he was growing lazy, which would have been unlike him, or just what he was doing that occupied the rest of his time. One evening I found out. He and Selena and Dad and Grace were to come round to my apartment for a buffet supper on a Sunday night This particular time Jerry and Selena came early. He had something under his arm, and as soon . . the greetings were over he presented it to me with a flourish. "Here, Bark. With the compliments of the author." And he grinned. It was a thin, gray-covered little magazine with a three-deck title, some sort of" journal of mathematics. I ran my eye down the table of contents, and sure enough, there was the name of Jeremiah Lister. "What hath God Wrought!" "You may well say that," he told me exultantly "That ob- scuie and drrir;py-Vio!;.ng hule public* Uoa • men than the Racquet Club. And I have crashed its austere gates." "Well," I said, sparring for time and looking at the article, "this is a surprise. And my novel only half done. You've beaten me to publication, all right." Jerry's piece occupied only two pages and it might as well have been a Sanskrit inscription for all the sense I could make out of It There was a short editorial foreword by the brain that conducted the magazine in Which Jerry's work was spoken of as "brilliant," "original," and "highly suggestive." After looking helplessly at the text for a few seconds, I said, "I bet Selena helped you with this." "No," she said, apparently taking my jest seriously, "I didn't help him." "I should say not," he added. 'She was opposed to the thing from the start. She told me it was a Waste ol time, but even in the face of discouragement I persevered. I like doing stuff in the field." "Well," I told him, "every man to bis own folly." I was really pleased about the article. Jerry was a bright lad all right. Selena looked surprised. "But this isn't foolish. Jerry's articla is absolutely correct." I POUnED the cocktails. Grace came in and we had another round. I showed her Jerry's piece. She wrinkled her forehead over it for a minute. "Goodness, Jeremiah my sweet, I don't sec how you have time for such things with a wife who locks like Selena." Jerry blushed and laughed. 'What I haven't got time for," he said, "is my job at Howard and Neurath, Statisticians. I'm quitting the end of next week." "You arc?" I was surprised, though I knew he was not tremendously keen about working in an oflice. "Yes," he said, "I've about decided that what I really want to do is teach." It seemed right to me. and I told hir- «o. - GUARANTEED Always A Good & PAINT & WALL PAPER FREE ESTIMATES LOW PRICES E. C. Robinson Lbr. Co.
