But curiously she did not (eel the old helplessness, the old depression. She felt, rather, a summoning o( pqwer within her, a girding for battlt, and she moved from the Queen Anne chair to sit | beside Peter. She tnok his hand ond clasped it hard in hers while she attended Fred's words. Fred was a spare man. dark, wavy- haired, and -n his navy blue suit with the white pinned shirt and while-striped navy tie, his body had a right-angled, whittled look His eyes, slightly bloodshot, were overlarge, his features fine, and a permanent frown had bcixme imbedded in his forehead by Uie too cjfctant elevation oj eyebrows "nK frown and the grilty voice and the impenetrable reserve gave Jennet a sense of une.ise in his presence, although, touched by his loyalty (o Peter, she felt aflection lor him. Fred lold of the questions he had been asked—about Peter's character, affiliations, friends, po- litic.il leanings, parents—and the answers l.e had given. He relayed 'he hoarse sentences with an almost boyish shamefac.dncss, (or "ic questions carried an affront "hich made the answers sound plaroliiiE. "It's easy to answer factual questions about ,1 friend " Fred apologized, "but *-hen you're asked (or your opinion of your trends opinions, the conversation get, 3 1,, | C ho[ , ,, (o . ;after a few minutes o( it.

'Fred Chancy,' I said to myself, 'if they're after your friend, they're after you.' Anyway, Peter, 1 did my best. But there's one thing's got me worried. One thing in particular . . ." "What's that?" Peter asked sharply, suddenly conscious o ( the two words that had lai.. like gallstones ac the bottom of his mind"Washington flies." • • • |TriED spread :iis immaculate hands, set them, gleaming, on his knees. "Remember the time we went to that girl's house t-D hear what we thought was going to be a speech by Kelly? H er name was Mary Templar. Remember?" The brittle joints of the trumpet vine beat on the window pane in another rise of night wind. j ermct had left his side to put a long match to the gas under the i ogs and the logs rrackcd in the sudden trough of (lame. The wind licked the names pointing their tips with its curving tongue. Now and then there was a disheveling downward gust of wind—a shower of sparks Peter look his eyes from the hypnotic motion of the flre and watcho.i his wife move from window to window drawing the heavv homespun drapes. He looked a't the slim waist which he could span wilh his hands and he saw it thicksned to support the weigh! of a .child. His heart made a fist in his breast at the thought of what one gone night, a visit more lustful than political, might do lo the new family of Peter Surinovs. Mary Templar. He had seen her first from the rear bending ovcr a desk. The chubby pink ICES straining the white silk seams making worms of them. "Miss Templar?" When she turned, he saw the round pink face, the pink chubby arms swelling out of tight srwrt cuffs. They discussed the thyroid patient. She asked him then i( he'd hke lo come to her house that night to hear Kelly speak or wasn't he a Democrat? He had a date with Fred that night, but he decided to bring him along, fie and Fred arrived late Mary Templar's living room was filled with people silling in rows of those rented collapsible chairs. • • . 'J'Hiry took scats in the back of the room Mary Templar turned at the sound of • their scraped chairs, dimpled at Peter and waved. The speaker was concerned with the current problems of a musicians' union. Whil» he spoke, papers were passed among the audience tor signatures. The mimeographed forms respectively protested the indictment of the Hollywood Ten and a bill written by an incumben' Republican scemmRly designed 'a limit free speech. Peter and Fred signcrf each form. As the meeting progressed it became increasingly apparent that the speakers held fast to the Communist Party line. Kellv did not arrive till midnight and he spoke rarnblingly about very little. The following week. Peter met Jennet, after which Mary Templar looked lo him like a perspiring dairy-maid. She even, he noticed, had i dairy smell. He didn't date tier again. The incident was closed. Or was it? A.i a result, his signature affixed lo two liberal protests was on file in Washington, and the protests would serve at a record of his attendance at a Communist gathering. "I remember," Peter said at last had forgotten, hut j romemhcr now. So that's what Cota meant. It must be.- He's got a vciv e fn._ cienl little spy system at the hospital.
