VI 'THERE were 150 resident girls at Edgemere. with, in addition, about 30 more from Asb- tondale and the country round. Lilith watched them come singly or I moping in, depending on whether they came by car or trnm or bus. Young, lovely thincs, some grave-faced and miserable nt the pro?pect of a long separation from home; other?, mostly the oider ones, falling eagerly into the old routine. visiting their favorite haunts, Rather ing in little Knots nnd swapping stories about what they had done during vacation. Lilith loved seeing them, meet- ins U\cm, watching the look in the bright young eyes, wary, speculative, trying to estimate • her. whether she would be '"hard" or "easy" with her stu- • dents, "a holy terror" or "an easy-mark." They had made life pretty miserable lor her predecessor. Miss Keightly, a terribly futile, near-sighted lady with a red nose and a perpetual sniffle. They used to have fun with "The Kite" as she had been christened in a school where everyone had a nickname. "Mother has met her," Peg \Vayh\nd informed n group of her friends before cUiss. "And mother says she's an—an enigma. And that's something, coming from .mother. She's the very dickens for anyone In try to fool. I taw thu Graeme witch walking with Handsome—you know, that divine Mr. Fenn from St. Brat's. Very tweedy and outdoorsy and the usual shell-rimmed specs and workhouse hairdo. But what a chassis—what I mean, to say- long legs and very bc.iiutifully stacked, even under ttie warden's uniform. And she has rrd hair —a deeper red than mine—almost like bronze—" " 'Redhead Gingerbread, five cents a loaf,'" taunted one. "Isuls to you," s;nd the elegant Mips Way land. "If you read history you would know that the most famous women have had—" "Maybe if you read further." said a quiet voice, "you'll find that some o[ the most infamous have had too." There was a confused murmur, low-voiced laughter, as they scattered to their places. Peg Wayland's white cheeks flushed and she looked at Lilith with a suddenly born defiance. Pussyfoot, she thought resentfully— why creep up behind a person like that, you might have coughed, sneezed or tripped over your feet. Anyway, she had been rather inclined to resent the new teacher. She knew vaguely that it was some girl in England they blamed /or her father's downfall. • « * CHE carried her shoulders stifTly ^ as she went to her seat, and her chin was high, her mouth stubborn. "Giles Wayland to the life," thought Lilith. "Too quick, too impetuous, too prone to make snap judgments." She met the level ga/.e of Peg Wayland's fine blue eyes, smiled briefly and looked away, "For the year's reading we hiive, in this class, Henry Esmond, The Lady of the Lake and Lamb's Essays of Klia—" And she thought, we are also sure to have menial indigestion and spiritual biliousness. Who ever selected thai heavy literary fare for a group of gay, laughing young girl.s? "You will also write me a page of English prose each day. Any subject at all—" She saw their stricken looks. "It will be hard at first—it's supposed to be; but it's the only way you can learn to write. You will of course learn the rules o£ rhetoric, punctuation, so on—but you will also put them in practice. For tomorrow," she went on, "you might, pick as your topic 'A Famous Woman of History.' " The class went well. She liked these girls, liked their earnestness, their rapt attention. There was only one notable exception to this model deportment and it was not at all flagrant nor did it hold in it anything »he could pick upon: it was the redheaded Wayland's lack of interest, an indifference feigned or real that Lilith was quick to notice. • • * r PHE girl, she had an idea, was much like her father—quick, sensitive, touchy—the kind of person who is easily hurt, who can often fancy injury where none is intended, slight where none is meant. She could be troublesome too. Right now, while Lilith talked to them about catholicity of reading, telling them that everything, from a worthwhile thriller to a classic, was worth reading, if not digesting, Peg Wayland was busy with something else. It looked as if she were sketching something. Peg was among the last to leave the classroom when the bell rang. By accident or design as she passed Lilith a sheet of drawing paper fluttered from her notebook to the floor almost at Lililh's feet. It was a sketch, and even at that dislfmcc Lilith recognized it—herself. "May 1 see?" Lilith put out a hand as the girl straightened from rescuing her sketch. The blue eyes met hers with .1 guilclc.ssncss, an utter innocence, too great to be real, and the low voice said, "If you really wi-sh to see it, Miss Graeme. I really hadn't inlendnd —" (To Be Continued) TUESDAY, AUGUST 4 7:00 Today 7:25 News T.30 Today 7:55 News 8:00 Ding Dong School 8:30 Arthur Godfrey 9:00 Hawkins Palls 9:15 The Bennetts 9:30 Strike It Rich 10:00 Shopping At Home 10:15 Love of Life 10:30 Search for Tomorrow 10:45 Hair Stylist 11:00 Storyland 11:15 Guiding Light 11:30 Garry Moore 12:00 Meditation 12:10 News 12:20 Farm News 12:30 Homemakers Program 1:00 Break the Bank 1:30 Welcome Travelers 2:00 On Your Account 2:30 Ladies Choice 3:00 Atom Squad 3:15 Gabby Hayes 3:30 Howdy Doody 4:00 Berl Crtswanger 4:30 Superman 5:00 Flicker Comics 5:15 News 5:25 Weatherman 5:3(1 Eddy Arnold 5:45 News Caravan 6:00 Mirror Theatre 6:30 Break the Bank 7:00 Nothing .But The Best 7:30 This Is Your Life 8:00 Two For The Money 8:30 Boston Blackie 9:00 Mr. & Mrs. North 9:30 News Reporter 9:45 Tonight in Sports 9:55 Weather 10:00 Famous Playhouse 10:30 Larry Storch 11:30 News 11:35 Industry On Parade 11:50 Sign Off TRUSSES Spring or Elastic Abdominal Belts Kirby Drug Stores MEYER & CHILES ENGINEERS P.O.
