Niklti, ^^ [fiancee of one of llicir popular of- 'ii. [liccrs,-entering n Cartel ball, drew S- -a sin-ill whistle of approval. She — ibluslied, ami smiled, and waved a | lacc-mitlcd hand at the compli- 'meiitary young men. Brinn grinned . .:wideiy and looked proudly down - upon her golden head. He'd known ;ihe minute ho saw Nikki in her Jiower-sprigged black taffeta that she would be the belle of the ball. He was. quite content when the C.O. claimed the first dance with her, and circled her away in n sedate one-step. When, on his first turn with his own girl, Dr. Woodward cut in, Brian nodded, and stepped aside to walch them. That .Woodward guy got around—he could, dance, and he must know the things to say into a girl's ear. Niklti was looking up at him, wide- eyed and sole'inn-faccrl, ns if she was eagerly believing what he had to say, This was not, evidently, to be Brian's evening. It seemed to him that, he. scarcely, touched Nikki. Some darned cadet or officer was always cutting in. That would have been bad enough—but Nikki so obviously was enjoying her popularity. And fostering it. Brian was no fool. lie could, standing oif against the wall, sec the she looked, wide-eyed, at Ihe slag line as she passed, then dropped her lashes demurely to her checks. What thc dickens, she was flit-liny willi those guys! A fine tiling— lie cauyhl Woodward wniclifng her, too, and lifted his lieml angrily in resentment of Ihe other man's amused smile. Brian was not amused. He wanted his girl to be sweet and lovely, amP his own— He hud never liked a flirt, lie never would like one. He'd (ell Miss Nikki so, before she went Xurllier with this little game. AS nn ofTiccr, Brian had lo stay unlit Ihe billcr end of llic dance; as an officer, he and Nikki had lo drop a couple nt Ihe cadets and their dales al the Girls' Dorm. Uiinn had only begun lo slate his case to Hikki when they drew up fronl of. the Glenn steps. He continued there as he walked willi her lo Die frptil door. Hut there she turned and looked up into his eyes. Her own face was puzzled. "Don't you want other men lo ike me, IJrinnY" che asked. "I doii'l want you lo like other men!" he cried, his voice harsh. "You're my girl —I waul to know you'll always lie my ijirl!" She looked wistful. "If you're too sure oJ me, you mighl uol want me." He tool; hqr slender shoulders in his slronc brown hands. "Listen to me!" 'he cried, not worryini; about who heard him yelling nt his bride-to-be. "I wouldn't bother wilh a girl I couldn't be sure of! I know I'm darned lucky lo have you bin ir you'ro mine, you're to te mine—and nu nonsense about it!" Malcolm was a light sleeper. lie wished he were not. He envied Nancy's ability lo inslanl cried, to hear il rain, nnd got up to shut the windows. Nnney paid she was no fool—she didn't mean to wake. Tonight, she slept serenely under thc orchid-satin'puff ol her bed. Malcolm was the one to IK> awakened by voices beneath their open window, to throw the covers aside, and go to stand looking down upon Nikki and'young Cox. He clenched his fists al the tone Brian was using to Nikki. By jeepers, no mail should, speak so to his girl, telling her he'd stand toe no nonsense! -j.~.-<iAiv.j •»••.» • '•' ••"• T-TE leaned out of. the open window to call down' lo Brian, to send the young squirt oft and about his business. Malcolm was not ready lo hand his daughter over lo any man who talked ihat wny— Nikkfc's voice came lip to him, tinkling like shallered glass. "Such lalk is positively feudal, Brian Co>:3 I'll lot no man speak so to me. You might as well know now, ns later, that I belong to no man. No, and I never will!" Malcolm gasped. A -fine way for a prospective bride lo talk! What did she expect lo do when she married? Just live with n man, granting him no rights-of. protection? The silly lilllc .dil'ruwit! His daughter needed to he told .a few plain truths, and quick! He loaned oul o£ the window. "Nikki!" lioth young people looked up. '"I'm sorry, sir," said Brian quickly.- lie was ;i decent diap; Malcolm liked him. The doctor growled in his throat. "Nikki, come up lo "bed!" he snid sternly, nnd pulled his head nnd shoulders back into the room. He'd have a (nil; with that young lady tomorrow—or at his very Xirsl op- porlimily. ... Bui the next day was n busy one for Malcolm, and by Ihe day after he had somewhat forgotten his pm-poso. He decided that Biian had talked like a man well able to Icai-h his bride the things she should know. Malcolm would probably s;ry exactly the wrong things, and risk, destroying the affection there had always been between himself and Nikki— (To lie Continued) "Let's try some different cereal for the football season, —| ate this kind all summer and only got one home run!"
