Joe took everything calmly By now he would be meeting the Lock Sergeant nl, the counter and counter-checking' the contents of the Sergeant's steel lock-hox as the Intter Inid under glass the flaming toweled pin? and clips Then Joe would use the little key which ruing so unobtrusively on •j^f watch-chain and the Lock Sergeant would move on to another show case, and Joe's dally guardianship would begin. Joe was a good salesman. Women liked to buy from hira Women! . And Joe had never looked at a woman other than herselfl Poor Joe. thought Alma once again. The service elevator stopped to let clerks out at Silverware, at China-and-Glass. at Special Wedding Gifts. Minor executives left at the fifth floor At the sixth. Alma stepped out into the lobby ol the workshop. Most Jewelers had their iewelry manufacturing done outside the premises, but Trunibull's had. even in the new building, stuck by the tradition of having it done under their own roof. Alma nodded to the uniformed guard who was always slumped in his chair by the door. "Moring, Pete!" He grunted, but with a smile ki IMS eyes. She left her things in the locker room, slipped Into her dark blue working smock and went to the check-away counter.

"Don't drop any diamondi on the floot today!" he admonished playfully. It was his standard joke. Alma smiled back. "You bet I'll be careful!" she said. "The Boor's about due to be sold. Isn't It?" • • • 'HE floor of the workroom at Trumbull's was the dread of all its jewel-makers. rt w»s covered by a shallow super-ttruc- ture of finely knit statwork, and despite every precaution on the journeymen's part, » certain imount ol gold and platinum dun and shavings from the trays seeped through to the concrete Boar beneath. Once g year this dust WHJ auctioned oil blind to salvage dealers, the highest bidder undertaking to remove the old wooden floor and replace it with a new one. The smallest winning bid In the his- lory of The House had been 13000 Anything other than dust sl!|v ping through the slarwork was considered the property of the salvage firm and for a Journeyman to lose even the smallest stone In this manner was looked upon as a disgrace. When Mr. Youmans made his little joke, his audience stepped carefully. Alm» found herself holding her tray grimly as she took it to her place at the bench where her grandfather already sat. Ok Victor watched her affectionately as she laid out her work, hit anxious. "All is weU, cheiie?' "Y«i, Pap« Victor. Well enough- What are you making?" ''A horrible modernistic dip." He held tt up, shuddering exaggeratedly. "However, one must ivel" He leaned toward her con- fldentlally. "But I have a new design—a flve pointed star. Walt until The Head see* that I They think I un through. tM I »ho originated the flexible diamond Bracelet, the diamond sunburstl Alorsl They an wrong; Regard* tol, cheriel" He shoved his meticulous drawing toward her. Even before she looked at it Alma felt sure that It, like mod of the okl man's dated work, was doomed »o r«~ iectlon. But she smiled and said, •Very lovely, dear Papa. Victor!" r THEN she concentrated oo her own commission, her pliers :>usy with the soft gold wires at the trial set-up. And presently she had forgotten everything except the beauty which was flower- Itn under her hands. The atmosphere swept her up into the Aladdin's lamp magic with which th« ulace never failed to Inspire her, for Trurnbull's wat no mere factory, no cold, detached series at unrelated luxury shops, but a gigantic entity which extended for beyond the stolid whit* marble <X lit walls. The House owned pearl fisheries^ off Godhelpus Island In the Pacific; had their own ruby and sapphir* mines in Ceylon and Burma where, before the war, white-robed merchants and yellow-robed prlcstf aided the American bagmen in the selection ,o< the best gems. There was the interest hold by Trumbull's in African diamond fields, and in gold and silver mines as well. The House of Trumbull had roots reaching out «H over the world—strong roots of its own through which (lowed the precious sap which supported The House ai the main truntt of a tree is supported by the rich earth. And the heart of this giant, golden tree was this workroom in which she labored with such energetic pleasure. At noon she showed Old Victor the furs and when they had been <h«lj »dmired. they went to lunch.
