Belly Jane and Bill Larkin nad been "going steady' since aelore Hill wuni mlo ,the Navy: In fact, although Bill liadj^'l exactly put It Into wor or writing, they would probably get married some day when things got back to normal, il things ever did. "Heavens!" Betty June liad exclaimed, her big blue eyes horrified. "He isn't a guy. He's a per- fcclly gorgeous, fascinating, marvelous man. Good-lookingl never dreamed one man could be so good-looking outside the mov ies. The dark, virile type, yoi know. He has a little mustache too. And he wears the nest-look ing clothes: ':es that match hi socks an.J handkerchieis: every thing lerribly quiet yet lerribl swank." "1 clidn t ask for an itemized II of his wardrobe," Bill had returned sulkily. "I said what's he like?" "I'm telling you," Belly Jane had replied palienlly. She had decided not to wax quite sa enthusiastic. Bill was the jealous lype. "He's [rightfully nice. And very polite, even to me." "He'd better be!"

Belly Jane decided to try Miss Willows. That good latljr was slil] behind her desk, laboring over her books. Miss Willows oflen stayed on aflcr Ihe others had icfl. Poor soul, she only had a lonely room to go home to, Betty Jane thought. "Have you any Idea what happened?" the young nurse asked in a carefully guarded tone, as she paused to inspect the angle of her hat in the mirror across from Miss Willows' desk. It was a honey of Incm. a mil. n new fall [uimuei "1 Betty Jane had Wanted to Buy Several trailer loads of CORN, HAY, and POULTRY Phone 049, Lewis Poultry, 419 E, Main, - l-2-ck-2-2 Wanted to buy or leat*--3malL groc- •ry and riling station combined with imnr quartan tn back, in 50 milea radiua ot BlytheYille in small town or on Busy highway.

"You'd belter not!" "Don't be silly!" Belly Jane had tried to pacify Bill with one of her sweetest smiles. "Dr. Hoi- brook ./ouldn't look at me. He's married and nis wife Is simply beautiful. He keeps her portrait, a great big one in a magnificent sterling silvei frame, right on his desk, and Miss Hilary always sees that there are fresti (lowers right in front of it every day." "Being married don't always keep Ihe dames away," Bill had commented. TT would keep a girl like Janice Hilary away, though, Betty Jane had decided later. As today, she thought. Now if Dr. Hoi- brook's w\l<* asKed him to get rid of • patient who had raised her voice to her that would make sense. For Betty Jane believed that when you worked for your 'living, you had to put up with some things you otherwise wouldn't, Janice really should not have made an issue out of that little morning scene with Mrs. Stoval, Betty Jane privately felt, and she wouldn't be surprised If Miss Willows and Mrs. McRae felt the same way. cunning little pompon slicking out in front, and an adorable little don't know — " hegan Miss Willows, glancing her brow lined with deep indentations dicaling concentration; then, as with Mrs. McRae. she did know. "Oh, that" she said. She put her pen back in its stand. "Time will tell." This last was in her severe, uncompromising tone of voice. BcUy Jane knew she was supposed to feel rebuked. Yet she also knew that Miss Willows was never so cross as she sounded. So she tried anew. "Of course," she said, "it would 3e a shame If Miss Hilary were :he one to quit. 1 suppose she did lave her feelings hurt." Miss Willows' prim, thin lips »et in their thinnest line. "Whal ever gave you the idea that Miss Hilary nighl resign?" "Why. 1 just thought—" Betty "Do you know yet how it came out?" she asked Mrs. McRae at the end of the day. Betty Jane felt that she simply couldn't start for her two-hour trip to Jersey with her curiosity unsatisfied. "How what—" Mr«. McRae ba gan. her mind obviously on other matters. "Oh, you mean thatl' J Mrs. McRae laughed. "I told you to wail and see. If Mrs. Stoval shows up next Tuesday, then youll know what't what.

Miss Willows compressed her lips mare tightly. "Miss Hilary will never teava. Not unless something unforeseen occurs." "1 don't see now you can be so sure!" Betty Jane declared. "1 am sure enough," Miss Willows staled decisively. Then she added in an odd tone, "It's a pity, a Icrrible pity." OETTY JANE decided it was no *-* use.

Miss Hilary liked il. so the new hat was a success. "You ought to" Junke was saying to Miss Willows. "It's been a long trying day for all of us." Nevertheless, there was an undercurrent of UiuiiiDh. auiet BS-.'..: CM triumph, in Miss Hilary's 3ic«. Betty Jane's ears caught It. It could only mean one thing. Miss -lilary—not Mrs. Stoval—hftd won. Belly Jane's pretty, totl mouth dropped open in nmaze- mcnl and admiration. Her wide eyes saw looks exchanged bclweei. Ihe oilier Iwo.

They had n magnificent view of Central Park's green lawns and trees, a view which, according to Janice Hilary, the doctor especially liked. Janice ought to get married, Betty Jane decided, joining the ihlck throng of homeward-bound workers There must he »ome man —more than one—who wanted to marry her. Not that Janice Hilary was a ravinq beauty, out she ',va? decidedly the kind of girl men liked. Besides that chestnut hair, she had gray eyes and the kind of skin the advertisements for soaps raved about. And along wllh that lovely, stylish liuiire. she had a quick warm sincerity that could make anyone feel good inside. Which must have been why Betty Jane felt bad. It was a sname. A darn shame.
