Andrew" flnltrr* K»itiry *» fckllirull}- th:it *he Invite* him nit* 1 his mother to dinner «IL Frl- L'jrlOM a. hostess's point of view, ^the 'dinner on Friday night went very well. Of course, Martin was. late coming home, but in a doctor's house such emergencies he'come.jthe expected thing. Nancy kept her promise to Andrew and invited no one but the Woodwards and Brian Cox. .Little Mrs. Woodward was a personage; everyone recognized th'at. "She looks like a raisin," Pete" had said, watching her come up the front \valki to the house. Arid Ihnl'was an' exact 'description. She was tiny and wrinkled, her thin hair was drawn tightly back 'into a knot at the peak of her oval skull. Her eyes were black and snapped with the vigor of her thoughts and opinions. .Even Brian and Nikki leaned forward to listen to what she had lo say. Time and *gain Malcolm's 'deep laughter rang out. and he 'found himself arguing spiritedly with the little lady. "First woman 1 .ever knew who could argue Impersonally," he praised her they went back to the living room fire for coffee. : ^ Andrew sat in the corner of the over-sized couch. Mar spread adoration across his shoo,' and studied Nancy. She was a lovely jerson. Tonight she wore an art- ully drnpecl gown of black chiffon, Is only decoration three small, veil placed bowknols of pale green a I in ribbon. Her light hair, jrushed high, reflected this sil- cry, greenish tint. She was ns beautiful as her daughter, nnd as wised for adventure, for excitement. As she sat on the rose- lowered love-scat beside Malcolm, Andrew wondered when Dr. •lonn had Inst noticed that his vifc's eyes sparkled like stars, hat she haci really lovely feel and inkles, * * * IT was nt this point that Martin arrived, a hit slavlled to realize that he was late to a party. He came in with <i word of contrite npology to Nimcy. "I got tied U] —I swear I forgot," he cried. "How nrc you. Woodward?" He strode across the carpet to bcnc over Andrew's mother, his dark eyes quick to appreciate her charm. "Have you eaten, Marty?" Nancj askcct.' "No, but don'l bother. I'll foragi for, myself-" "You will noil" Nancy lold him "I'll fix n Iray—" "I'll do it, Nanny," Nikki offered quickly.Brinn untangled his lonp legs and followed her lo tin kitchen. Martin chuckled. "1 make a vcr> good excuse," ho murmured. Nikki and Brian arranged Mar tin's dinner on the desk in th little study which opened from Us far end of the living room. Mar tin went out to it, stooping a lilll to kiss Nikki's soft check bcfor he sat down. She cuddled ngnins him. "My fnvorilc uncle," sh puvrod. Martin lifted a quizzical eye brow. "Is this going lo be touch?" Nikki laughed softly. "No, but do wont you to help me persund loc"—she (;lnneed swiftly ticAvn 10 living room toward Malcolm— I know where we can get a per- cclly keen radio lor the car. 1 vant you lo help me coax Doc to ct us have it." "I don't want her to have It," lalcoim announced. "I don't van I n radio in Iho car. One lis- ens to it and forgets to drive care- ully." Martin neatly dissected his lur- cy wing. "When are you having I put in?" he nskcd dryly. Ha coked up, grinning, inlo his I'Olhcr's eyes. Malcolm smiled ind loddtid, the three younger men huckling in appreciation. TT was ns if the little interchange belween the brothers voiced the amily unity in the Glenn house- iokl, as a week in the Hospital iad shown Andrew Woodward hat the brothers Glenn maln- aincd unity within the Lair. Hot "»nvy burned suddenly in his hroat; delibcralcly ho turned, vailed until he caught Nancy's eye, and then smiled at her in an understanding fashion. As if he said lo her, "You and I are opart t'om these un venturing though excellent people," Nancy's chedu 'lushed in a pretty fashion. Sharply, old Mrs. Woodward cleared her throat. She made a uustling business of putting her itling away. "Andrew," she said elcnrly, "it is time we went home." Nancy made a polite sound protest, but Andrew got to his feet. "Don't ever argue with Mother," lie advised, "I can think of nothing more futile." Dr, Glenn offered to drive them home, but Mrs. Woodward independently refused. It was a matter of three blocks—a bedtime walk was K°acl for one. 'Yon were a great success. Mother," her son told her, ns they went down the winding walk, "1 like people, so they like me," she slated comfortably. She clung . lo her son's strong right arm iu silence for a while. "Andrew!" . . "Yes, Mother?" "Those calm waters in that home we just left—it would be a pity to sec them ruffled by a wind of your idle blowing."
