Steve had fixed up a rude diving board, weighed down at one end with sandbags. He'd hung 3 rope from a tree limb over the water. The t^rec of them were having a hilarjous time. Sieve was a powerful swimmer and Laurie's father was as agile as an urchin. Laurie herself put on a pretty good performance at the diving board She felt Sieve's eyes following her with admiration as she dived from the board with practiced I- ease. "Whew," he said once, "you should have an audience, being able to dive like that. Where did you learn all that fancy stuff?" "We have a poo! at the place in Connecticut, and in New York we swim at the club." "Oh." Steve's face was grim as he turned away f rom ner arirt plunged into the water. She was to come to know that look of grimness, or antagonism or whatever it was. she saw it on Ihe faces of some of the customers who came into her father's hard\vare store when she first began to help out a little there. "You don't need to come down lo the store, even if we are short of help," her father protested "Your mother would have a fit." "But I want to," Laurie said stubbornly. Ev»n though she knew that her mother would be horrified and Fletcher mijht disapprove, she found a queer sort of gralUralion in it. She wore an old pair of jeans and a wlrte shirt and she got all dirty and oishcveled sacking up nails and climbing up and down ladders hunting tor hinges and things, but it pleased her no end when after a while people got over their antagonism toward her apparently and began to refer to her as "Louie French's girl." It pleased her also to see the affection and respect with which people in Ridgeville regarded her father. Ifow different her life would have been, she thought wistfully, if she had been allowed to grow up here with her father, or beller still if her mother had never gotten the divorce. Fletcher phoned in July, long distance from New York. He was going to London for the government and then to Rome. He wondered if she wasn't fed up with the "sticks" by now and ready to come home, marry him and go abroad with him. "Of course not, Fletcher. I haven't had my visit out yet." "Darling, I don't understand vhat the attraction Is out there!" Fletcher's usually calm voice was edged slightly with anger. "According to Emmy your father is nofhing but an old bore.' 1 "Emmy doesn't know him!** "I'm beginning to think I don't know you." Plelcher said. His lone was definitely one of anger now "Please Flelchcr, don't be angry." There was a long pause and then Fletcher said, "I'm sorry to be impatient, Laurie, but I miss you. Nothing's any fun without you." After the conversation was over. Laurie thought about (hat one sentence. Fletcher missed her lo the point of bitterness. And the appalling thing was, she didn't miss him at all. • « « CHE slill was searching for the 0 answer to the question as to why her feelings for Fletcher had undergone some sorl of a change I Ihe night Steve look her la Uie| Saturday night dance in Ridgeville. She found out a lot ot things about Steve ''at night tiia: she hadn't known before, and one or two about herself. Her father raised his eyebrows when he heard she was going to the dance with Steve. "And what's he going to do about Evelyn?" "Evelyn?" "Hasn't Steve ever mentioned Evelyn Crane to you? Why they've been practically inseparable since she came to teach here a year a^o Steve sort of took her and her little boy under his wing. She's a widow and the boy isn't too strong." So that explained Steve's occasional evenings in town and once in a while an afternoon, Laurie thought. She decided to wear a little while tulle evening dress to the dance. It was pretty formal, but no one would nolice oecause it was so simply made, deceptively simple in fact, hut it brousht out the i n c r e d i V> 1 e smoothness of Laurie's shoulders. • • • CUE sensed by the way Sieve's eyes flickered when she came down the stairs that the dress was right She was sure ot It when she saw the envious . mcc€ that came her way when they reached !he dance. There was one r'r) especially, a tall blonde who seemed unable lo tear her eyes away from either Laurie or the dress. She kept ^taring, and ''er a while Sieve took Laurie over and Introduced her. It was Evelyn Crane. "So you're • Laurie," the girl said. "Steve told me a lot about you." There was no friendliness in her smile. "You've been monopolizing him this summer. Steve's other friends have hardly seen him at all." 'm sorry," l.nuric said. An Interested little group had gathered to eavesdrop around the three o[ them and Laurie didnt go on. "You must bring Laurie to the carnival ai the school next week Steve." Evelyn Crane turned back to Laurie still fore ;.;, • amile "Steve's putting on a magic ad for the kids. My boy Johnny it ju£"t crazy ahnut him." (To B« Continued) MONDAY NIGHT.
