'-•• Sherry wished she could have ;her name on the door, hut she rsupposed that was a privilege re- rserved for higher-ups, like Tom- rniy Sivers next door. "•' lie had the big corner office but -then he was a writer. He called : Sherry "the sweetness-and-light 'girl" and kidded her patror.LTinely- ~ She did not always understy ^him. ; Orville Merriman talked like -that too. : 1 Z.Irs. 4 Dfo.pd'had sent her to his i office, one afternoon with a book ^ond Sherry had been thrilled 'Everyone in the world knew Or- ville Merriman. He had been a cgitimalc actor for years and they said he could gel over any metin- ng by the lift of an eyebrow.

He had , "Come in,' 1 and she opened he door and stood in it. iUcrriman looked at her from iicr feet up, very slowly, as if considering every swell and curve her. When he jjol to her face \c said, "Great Scott, whcix* did yon come fron)?" Sherry had said, "From Mvs. Drood's o/Tice. She wanted you to read this."Sherry had never been looked at like that before. She- had felt icr neck get hot and the roots of her hait- tingle. Merriman said, "Well, come in all over and shut the door." Sherry had never thought of a man as being "beautifully" dressed before, but Merriman was. His pale blue shirt gleamed like damask and against it in deeper blue was knotted the rich salin of his tie. His warm gray coal looked like angora. He had said, "Sit down and loll me why U rood sent her inuoccn abroad?" Sherry had said, "That isn't the name of it," and proffered the book. Merriman had put an elbow on the desk and laid his forehead on his hand and laughed quietly foi a long lime. Finally he had taken a handkerchief from his sleeve nnc wiped his eyes. Then he hat asked her questions abovit hcrscl and had not said "anything else Ihsi concurred her. After a while she had s he h;ui lu i^et bnek, and Motrinvi'-i ot u]> iiinl walked lo the door vlth her. "Tell Drooti to send you again/' GiTimun had s;iid, "only next [hie leave the door open.

She lincl told the boys about him lint night and Tony had siiicl, "If got live thousand n week, I'd Ircss like thai too." Sherry had gasped. "Does he really gel thht?" Tony said, "Five grand when 10 isn't shooling. Ten when lie is." Now Sherry sal mid stared mil vcr tlie hills mid thought it would be nice to get ten thousand dollars week if only for one week. * . * * 'HE had lunch with Mrs. Drooti . niul Sieve Prescoll and Tommy Bivcrs- In the Aztec room ot Ihe soinnussary that day and Orville orriman stoupccl by to chat.
