Then Joe Denton shook his head and laughed abruptly—a half-angry, half-tender sound it was. "You're hopeless!" he said, arising from the table. "Come on T I'm going to take you home—and leave you alone till you come lo me. Bu; nQ_malter what you decide about «f.Mm3, I want you to remember t?at I'll always be there when you need me, for no matter what pur- posel" When Alma got home, she fell that the apartment had ceased to be a haven of rest. As she let her- Mlf i n i the plncc seemed almos 1 dreary in spite of the gay furnishings. It was empty, dead, loo tidy With a rush of mingled emotions she wished it filled with the signs that her husband Tommy was ! home—safely home. She wanted to see newspapers I on the floor, soiled shirts to be sent out, a dinner to cook, dishes to wash. Anything which mean their habit of life Ingrther, im perfect as that life had often been But the little flat bore no im print of anything except the im personal care with which she hac set it in order that morning. Wors o! all, was the silence. She turned on the radio and th familiar voice which had blazone * cut at this same hour last nigh Hod tti* room: ". , , Courtesy ot ie Mammoth Gold-Buying Corn- any. Sell your old gold and ewe try with confident* . . .* She napped it off again. This to where 'ommy came in L9M night, the hought Last night. Cam* fn. 'he words bad painful significance ow. Tommy would not corn* home onighi. she felt certain. I reusing in the- dark the rawled into bed and lay there i.Inking. What 11 Tommy were ntrne to her? Well, rtw had Joe —why couldn't she make tt even? t she was going to b« left alone ike this, lied to, deceived, why ot console beraelfT Aunt Pleasnt's grim mouth and tender eyes eemed to come close in the dark- n ess. " IJL'a not bei n g tru« to Tommy that counts," said the nasal voice, "it** being tru* to •outsell!" Then Gran" Bijou's 'wrinkl mischievous old fac« pushed its way into the picture. 'Alors! Be realistic, my IHU< cabbage! Love i* not important enough to torture one's soul about Do not worry about your hiw- aand's behavior, nor copy R. We Trench have a sound family lit and we do not allow a thing like .his to break It up." » * » r PHE lumbering nound of early morning traffic, of heavy truck pounding lo the markets and the shrill whistles of night-club door men hailing cabs for late-depart ing patrons had begun to breal the mid-town silence, when Aim heard the uncertain footstep* in the hall outside, and the (umblln at the keyhole ol the front door H was 2:30 o T clock and Tomrn had come home. He stood in the bedroom door way, swaying slightly and grin ning In a foolish manner. A1 sat bolt upright, wid« a.wak« tbe instaat. "Changed my plans," he said lickly. "Don't go out o( town ntil tomorrow. Got home, after It- , "After all what?" her voice was larp. "You may at well know DOW, Tommy Conroy. 1 saw you nd your Udy friend at tb« Blue -at" "My lady friend? Dam it, 1 out know what you're talking bout." "I probably shouldn't emphasize * *l*dy' part oi it—but I saw ou. Who was she?" "Oh, thatl" he blinked amiably. "That wa* Brfght's girl Mysti if arch and."* "What were you doing going out with her?" Merely taking her a message from Bright." He said it with in- oxicated dignity. "Muct have oeen a mighty long ie*sagel If that'; your important, confidential lob with Bright. I on't want any part it what you «t out of H' M "All right, all right!" he shouted. *Do as you please but for heaven's e shut up and Jet me get some leep! I've had a tough night it!" • • • A LMA buried her face in her pillow, her heart* beating wild- y, and presently Tommy stumbled nto bed and snapped off the light. Tommy was still asleep the next morning when Alma went to work, her heart heavy and sick. The memory of his flushed face, his leavy, alcoholic breathing haunted ^er. He must stop it, she thought, h* must, he must, before^ it becomes a fixed habit! If only something would happen lo shock him into a realization of what he was doing to himself and to those who loved him best! But what would do the trick? Should she threalen to leave him? She had done, that before but the trouble was, she had not made her threat good and so now Tommy would not believe herl Perhaps she should simply sjo? At this, the thought of Joe swept like a refreshing wind over the torrid suffocation of her spirit. Yet she was afraid to see Joe. If she saw him right now she rmght say "yes" (T« Be PIT BARBECUE PIT BARBECUE PIT BARBECUE PIT BARBECUE PIT BARBECUE PIT BARBECUE PIT BARBECUE PIT BARBECUE PIT BARBECUE PIT BARBECUE PIT BARBECUE PIT BARBECUE KREAM K REAM ASTLE DRIVE-IN Corner Division & Walnut PRESCRIPTIONS Fresh Stock Guaranteed Best Prices Kirby Drug Stores -Ja»n ^_>ayj.' ^ Come to the RAZORBACK For Delicious Barbecue RIBS Served Every Day Your Car Will Get Best Service If You Bring It to T.
