The door in front of her opened inward. William Austin's lined face appeared in Ihe narrow aperture. "Well, Cammie?" 'Dad, I know the rule about applications for scholarship aid being confidential, I've never asked you to break it before, but —please—I've got to make sure about one thing now, and nobody but you can tell me. Joel Conroy didn't apply for a Dean*! Award did he?" *"Conroy?" For a quizzical moment the Dean learched her se white face, as if he were looking for something he was not quite certain he could find in its expression, "Yea, Cammie.** He nodciec slowly, then. "Yes. he did. It w just yesterday, late in the afternoon.'* "Is—does he stand any chanci of rating one?" "A very food chance, I'd lay child. Hii war record wai excel lent.

"I'd say that it meant a Lot. ow don't you fret about Conroy's hances, honey. Your old Dad will to it that—" ~^AM turned awav from her fa- ~* ther with a small and stran- [ling sound in her throat. She realized as an isolated Tact thai he den door closed "softly behind her. x If it had not been true—what Vlaurine had been saying on the ;elephone—JoeJ surely would have applied for such important scholarship money much, much earlier? Just yeslcrdayl The words had become a tolling inside her like the tolling of disastrous tells. "Bui 1 still won't relieve it." The meres- whisper cf sound in' the still hallway told her that she had spoken the desperate thought aloud. "If ii were true^—why. then, Joel never would have fought with me las' night He'd have wanted to keep things pleasant He'd have been as sweet as honey."

He must think I'm a perfectly awful person to condone such • mean plot I—I think he even expected me to tell him how clever lie wns." Cam stood there, a figure of stone. "1 still can 1 ! believe it." "1 wouldn't, either." Maurine answered, hurt and outrage twisting each syllable from her. "He's so handsome. And so exciting to be with. While he was away with the Army, he musl have learned how tc make girls ill around the world believe whatever he wanted them to. 1 know I'd have believed him. if ll'd been me he wns bent on making a goose of. I'd have believed every look of those dreamy blue eyes." The thought ol Joel's eyes cut into Cam «o deeply that she actually winced with pain.
