Its silence closed in like the lid on a coffin. She paced the long hall, restlessly. She paced the front parlor, like • caged animal. Every step she took seemed to jar some new anguish through her. , At last, when she could bear the austere and accusing stillness of the Dean't big house no longer, the sudden force which drove her from It »nd out into the crisp midaftemooo waa not reasoned nor logical. Her departure had, instead, all the characteristics of a headlong flight. She turned down the hill for no more cogent a reason than that thia waa th« direction away from tht stadium.

She reached the bottom ot the hill, then crossed the street from force of habit The twin white lines painted from curb to curb guided her at rails would guide • blindly moving vehicle, and she came face to face with the portals oJ Kremolka's Kandy Kitchen. Cam jerked her gaze from the in- Titation of the familiar facade and act her steps dead ahead along the business block. This was where that silly, sweet ritual about the single soda with the double straws had been' born This was where, so recently, she had sat motionless in the back booth and had looked into Joel's blue eyes with ecstatic confidence 'that paradise belonged lo her. • • • AfTD thinkuiK these things she did not wish to think, she passed the door, to that favorite food emporium* of unnumbered Carter generations. There was no reason for a second glance. Even when she heard the mulTled slam behind her she did not look around. It took Connie Heath's ignoble yelp o£, "Hey Austin, waH up!" to slow the quick and desperate footsteps so dangerously resembling a runaway. "I thought it was you I saw when I was paying my check!" Connie breathed, falling into step beside her. "Say, I've been wanting to ask you. Is there insanity in your family, by any chance?" "Insanity?" "If there isn't, what cooks with our little glamor pledge? 1 saw her racing through the streets like a mad thing, a while back." "Oh, you mean Maurine?" Cam's eyes were hard with the tears dammed up behind them. But no one — certainly not Connie — was likely to suspect the reason for their unaccustomed brightness. "She was seeing somebody off on a train, 1 think." "I thought it might be a misplaced attack of spring lever. When 1 stopped h«r she hardly knew who I was. Just gasped out something about having to keep somebody from selling an old family homestead and then dashed on past me. Very peculiar. Sister Austin, very peculiar." "Not when you know all the details," Cam said unevenly. Connie shrugged. Her step was lagging already. "Well. then. Here's where I heart for the stadium. Aren't you taking in the game?"

TIER sister in the bonds of Eta Mu regarded her admiringly. "1 wish I could develop that re-mote, detached attitude about life!

The thought which had come to her confusedly In the parlor of her (ather'a house came back to her again. No. she never would have suspected that the child could get so upset about anyone outside hersell as she very obviously had become over Joel's departure. What Cam herself had seen was only borne out by Connie's report. The thought of Joel's getting rid of his farm had really wounded her. Who would have expected a girl brought up IB the embassies and houses of fashion in Was) gton, hardened by th« political kaleidoscope which had revolved before her eyes almost since they could first see. to Durst such a savagely sentimental feei- ing about Joel's boyhood home? Maurine never had known a hom« oj her own. except the expensively impersonal suite her father had maintained for 20 years in one big District of Columbia hotel or another How could she even imagine what it might be like Tor a farmer's son to sell the home- place where he had been raised? It was touching and young, and Cam wished bleakly that there were, a tear lelt in her to be shed. She would have liked to be able to weep for Maurine. You never knew what other people were like inside, not really. The. least she could hope was that her young cousin had caught up with Joel in time to say goodby, and that Joel had been reasonably gentle with Ihe poor distracted kid. (To Be ContiDBe*) >or*.
