Jennet followed Peter down the aisle, leaning backward to resist the Incline fcv-'hich sucked at her feet. About ^50 people were scattered like salt •through the front rows of the [rmurted hall. Jennet's quick sur,- .wtjr of the heads told her that more than half were students, the rest, dowdy respectable oldsters of the lecture-hound variety. Peter showed her to the front jow, said in a lowered voice, ''You (don't mind sitting way up front, |do row? We can sit here on Uw *ide." Peter mounted the steps to the platform. He leaned his elbows on the pedestal, his shoulders hunched like a cowhand at a pasture fence, and his face too—the stone-cloan bones, the ruddy coloring, the hair shocked as by a wind—seemed to belong to the outdoors. The acoustics gave his deep voice an echoing ring which lhad theatrical value. He ex- tar *>« beneftt of newcomerf, mad* a few reference* to paat meeting* whicb brought chuckles from the itudents. -Home*,- b« aid, -that's what we*r« foing to hemr about tonight. Homw.

It wu Rot only J goinn la b« a bora, but unpleasant too. Of cour*e th«r« were slums wherever there were large cities.

"... some men claim then »r« no slums—only dirty housewives We have with ui tonliht a man who disagrees. It is my privilege to introduce Mr. Fred Chancy, whos« fin* work in the field of public housing i* nationally known. Mr. Chaney." The sound of applause was lost to the shadowy arch of the ceiling but its beat was steady and determined. As Peter jogged down th« iteps of the stage, another man climbed the far ones. Her eyes wcr« on Peter—she could hear the coins jingle in his pocket a! he bounced down with th? looie movement of the tap-artisl Small as the pond was, he was, -M We OB* hccc. MM! utvnl Itw* of celebrity made her proud that was coming to sit beside her. Th« teat creaked as he settled himself. In the dimness, she whispered, "On you a soap-box U Mcoming." Th* man did not make himself at home on the rostrum a* Peter had. He was short—th« podium came high on hi* chest—and hi* voice had a hoarKnear. Jennet lowered her head and closed h«r eye*. ' . . . and next door to this ramshackle three-story building is a cowtaii factory. Do you know what a cowtaii factory is? It 1* a factory where the fresh tail* of horses and cow* are plucked for hairs and the hairs used for upholstery of furniture." Sh« was suddenly acutely embarrassed by the rumbling of her stomach. 1 ... a third of a million people in Loi Angeles today are penned Into the lame liny dismal areai that were allotted to them before the war when their number* were small." The irjoaker talked on and she crossed her arm* over her rtora- ich, hugging the noije of it. "Friends, I see my time is almost up . ,. * Jennet perked up. It would end, then. She squinted hard at her watch which said only « quarter to nine. Gus wai not even home yet. Gus—in conference with the hospital heads, not three minutes «way. • • • PETER catapulted out of his scat at the instant of clapping. Standing in the pit at the base of the stage, he held his arms up and when there wai quiet, he praised the speech and vouched for its accuracy. Then h« beckoned to the speaker who had resumed h!s seat and who now came to stand alongside of Peter. "Who's first with a question?" Peter invited, 4iis arms up again, and then was a show of hands Something in the evangelical abandon of Pet*r'» pos« and the crowd's response of fluttering extremities snipped the lart thread of Jennal's endurance. She got up and left the hall. •y J. R.
