He would probably be much more than that, lie might be angry. He might, in fact, bo furious. She knew that he had already had tickets for on* of the hit shov/s. She and Ben had gotten back on the old familiar fooling. He had laken to dropping in at the Hilary house whenever he felt like it. It did not matter whether or not Janice was at home. He was part of the family, as he always had been. Mrs. Hilary spoiled him, Dad liked to argue with Ben and discuss politics and sports, and Albie, well.

Her young (ace " l ' h "' s Few persons would have guessed lhat these two were sisters. Albie's hair was red, Jnnlce's chestnut brown. Albie's eyes were blue and Janice's a quieter gray. Albie wns taller and thinner than her older sjster. Most people, at iirsl, considered hers the more dramatic beauty; but Janice's became more apparent as time went on, nnd one finally arrived at the conclusion thai the older sister was the more ntlrnclive. sc^ra'tcd i n T,' ' " "' ". wl11 : c » Pleasure.

She was not in a dither—at le.-ist not in much of one. But she did not have any lime to spure. "We'll sec," her younger sister replied with a condescending air. "What's on your mind? Hey! Are you going lo wear your chartreuse? You must be stepping out." "You don't think it's too dressy, do you?" Janice asked a bit anxiously. She sat down at her dressing (able to do her hair. Should she take time to do it up? It was becoming worn off her slender neck, the curled ends forming a tricky pompadour held in place by a pair of gold combs lo match the wide gold belt which was the only trimming on the chartreuse dress. "How can I answer that one," Albie asked, "when you haven't said where you're going? Yon haven't named the favor yet, cither. You are in a slew, Iambic! You act, as if you had to be at a fire.

It would be fnr heller nol lo Icll Albie. She might not moan lo spill it, but she was bound lo. Much belter that Jnnice herself explain lo lien. "You sure sound mysterious," Albie snid suspiciously. "Mysterious?" Janice laughed. "Could be." The chnilrcufie dress, her fur jacket, anil sha would be ready. "Have a good time, bnby—nnd remember, lell Ben I'll explain und lhat I'm frightfully sorry," Janice said as she prepared lo lenve. She would nol have lime to call downstnira lo her mother. "Plensc explain to Mumsic, loo— there's a dear—nnd lell her I WHI in B rush." "You certainly are!" Albie retorted. "Well, run along. I'll attend to everything. Have a good time, too, honey chile." "Oh, I shall." Janice relumed, wiili such calm cerlninly lhat her younger sister's curiosity wns kindled even more. Now who could it be, ..,„,= wondered, to make Jan look like that?
