De- Q her griei. she had not even heard the tires of the shiny, fast- looking roadster as they rolled to a BCDile standstill at the curb behind her Before she could make Beefy Dalrymple's .ough features come clear Dehind tht gleaming steering wheel. Jhe had to slash away the enveloping'cobweb veil which had settled between her and all the rest of Cartersville. . "Your memory's getting bad. isnt it. Sergeant?" How she found words for him: and now her lips had been forced to frame them, she could not have said. The name Is Austin, remember? Your buddy used to murmur it In his sleep, at the front, you told me." "By me," said Beefy, "it's Borgia." "I won't' argue the point.' II youTl let me cross the street—" Bui the long roadster mad* no move to back away from its point of illegal vantage across .the pedestrian lines of the intersection. "Back in the campaign we ran Into plenty of them dungeons the old girl—Lucretia, her front name was—used to toss her boy friends into, when she got lired of >m." His eyes were like marbles, expressionless. "The guys she didn't poison outright, that is. Lucretia used to play rougn, she did. Sort oJ like you." Cam gasped. "Like—me?" "Can the act, sister." Beefy was no more the friendly hulk he hac seemed behind the lilac hedg« than night wa« like day. There was hatred In his face, in nil voice; the kind of hatred tha pulls no punches. "I know what's back ot those big green eyes o yours. But Joe's gone, now, see' Tht game is all over." 1 don't know what you're talking about," Cam answered stiffly II this is the tag line o! your joke nd Joel's, 1 can't say that it seems ny funnier than the- build-up, 'lease let me pass." 'I3ABY. 1 wish you'd passed by years ago—on the ipposite ide of the street from a aice. lean-cut kit) lik« Joe' Yeah, and could konk myself for not wls- ng to lyou quicker—sc 1 could have saveH him just that many ards of heartache. Well. Princess, that's spilled milk now. But you won't never kick him in the eeth again!" "Did Maurine And him ID time a —?" Dead in the middle of her luestion, Cam switched to another. ""What do you mean, kick him?" "That's what I'd call it when a mouse like you gets a guy like him all over hearts and Bowers, saying she'll wait for him forever and all the rest- And then sends lim a pretty note saying so »onry." Cam stared at him. "But you know why ! wrote that. You and Joel.both know. When Maurine told me,-or rather when 1 made her tell le. all that Joel bad told her—about why he was pretending to want to marry me, so my fathei would wangle him a scholarship award—" "I'm not buying," said Beefy in a hard, flat monotone. "But it happens to be true. Ant you know perfectly well that it is Joe) knew that, the way thing: are run *t Carter. William Austin : recommendation is as good as any award. He knew that all he had to do, to make -certain of all the funds he needed to speet" up hi course here, was just cozen tlv gullible Austin girl for a week o» so. He—he also knew—" Something had 1 changed a fev ruddy layers beneath the surfac of Beefy's battered .'ace. lit via looking at her differently, now "Slap down," h« said aoftly "but I think I believe you! I think ou mean all this crazy gab. Look, nswer me one point of tact Ar« are you not hitching up egal with this professor lerk?" 'Marrying Herbert? Certainly ot! And if you want the whole ruth and nothing but the truth, 'm not m-marrying anyone. Not ver!" Jeefy slapped the shining door if the roadster so hard the wind- hield shivered "1 said to Jo* his^ noontime. I said how it was larn ' funny Herbert didn't know bout'being engaged to you until o*i up and read your letter to iim. But Joe was too broke up o listen. His one idea was to low the ioint and ^et elsewhere, climb in!" Thank you, but I'm still able 0 walk I—*' "Don't talk dumb. You can't walk to Acadia. It's fifty miles." 'T'HSY whisked through the ilttle village of Acadia on Hour and 1 half later, passing aj^ four ol its lores and the modest white Prea- >yterian church and the traffic ilinker ot the four corners with Beefy still driving as if the devil's own henchman was*close behind. An RFD box flashed into view alongside the road, with CONROY marked or it In weathered letters. Beefy saw the turn 'nto an over- trown .driveway and took it on :wo wheels. His tires screeched under them as'he slammed on his brakes. "All right, Cammie. ' got you here. The rest is up to vou. This character we've been discussing—he'll b« some place inside. 1 wouldn't wonder." "• , I "B-but aren't you coming in loo? 1 thought—" 1 got to sit here and mind my car." said Beefy, opening th* door with a firm gesture. "Termite*, might steal it. see?" Cam climbed from her seat slowly, and even more slowly began to mount the unpainted step* rising out of the weeds in tbe direction of the farmhouse's front porch. The door toward which h« was headed stood ajar. Suddenly she was running forward. _ Joel was inside. He must be, h* had to be. (T*. Be CMiinoed) OUT OUR WAY By J R.
