She faced Willis with this question: "If the manufacturers' per< centage of profits is less, then why '; BID I going into debt trying to Jeed ', my family?" • "Because the farmer is getting ' more money.

Because so many of our people stll! believe \ve should ' carry on the policy of feeding Wrst- ' crn "Europe in a somewhat hay bei lief that this will stop the spread ' ing of Communism.

All of these have shot up. Willis explained -10 per cent goes for packaged foods. These have cither gone up very little, not at all, or have gone down in price. He advised her to spend a greater part of her food dollar on the foods that have resisted price pressure. But, that advice ran smack into opposition. At.

Alter dinner, some oJ Joyce's riends came lo lake her oft to a arty, and George nnd Happy vere alone in the big drawing oom. "Would you like to go over to he hotel and dance?

"I'd like to sit on the nz.itlea .errace nnri watch the moon rise over . the tree tops," satd Happy promptly. Geqrge's face lit up, *nd he bckd out his hand. "Good girU Thai's whal I'd ttke, oo!" he said, and tucked her hand ,bro»gh his arm and walked her out to the terrace. For a moment she stood still, Breathless before the beauty of Ihe view: the mass o( azaleas were like a flight of white butterflies caught in a web at silver-gilt moonbeams, the frngrance of petunias against her face, the dark mystery of the woods that seemed to press close to the velvety lawn. And as they stood there, George put out his arms and drew her close V> him, and his fingers beneath her chin tilled her head back vmtii her mouth Iny B fe>t wches bolow his own. For a moment she lay still in his arms, awaiting his kiss; and then her instinctive gesture of withdrawal, slight though each child, a serving a day for all of them of meat, fish, poultry or egps, plus ercen and yejlow vegetables.

"Sorry—blame »* on the moonlight. I always get that old romantic feeling," he said lightly. Joyce is deeply w ^ T love with David—" Happy blurted it otit and could have kicked herself, for she had meant to be more diplomatic, to approach the subject carefully. George stiffened, and his expression, even in the moonlight, was ?;!mosl hostile. "I appreciate your interest, Hnp- py, bul alter all, I've known Joyce all her life, and I know just how fickle she Ls, : ' he said evenly. "VitRIf?" George smiled clown at her. "Happy, if, I could feel that she would remain in love with David nnd be willing to stay married to him, 1M give up my objections," he said reasonably. "But Joyce always wauls what she can't have: and once she gets it, she loses interest David is not the first man site has wanted to marry, and 1 feel sure he won't be the last." "But, George—" Happy began. "Listen, Happy, please let me be the judge of what is best tor Joyce." There was an edge to his voice and she saw Hint he was angry. Suddenly a dark shadow loomed across the green and went slinking out of sight, nnd, lo Happy's startled surprise, George gave a little laugh. "Timmf has gone nntive, I see," he said lighlly, changing the sub-, jccl so deliberately that Happy's face burned. "He seems to like it here.
