Robins & ira ^ WA 5^4^, >-c I ' IrN a leisurely way Louise cleared f- away the breakfast things, then |lr«ssed for the street. It was a Aright brisk day. Louise stepped liut at a smart pace and was soon plowing with the exercise. 1 She hadn't walked as fast as I his for years, she chuckled to TierseK. "It's wonderful to have Jwo such lovely children, but I'm lust beginning to realize how Ihey've tied me down." I Deep in her own thoughts, she •lid not notice Josie Brown ap- •sroaching. Josie was wheeling a il* go-cart in which her two- f^Jf. r-old son sat, viewing th e l-vorld with solemn, lustreless eyes. "Good morning, Louise. Where j your baby? Have you led him l^-ith-your mother?" "Oh, good morning. Ns, my baby •ias grow up," Louise answered looking with pity at Josie's child, Kt did seem as if something could •ac done about bis complexion |'Ted started school today." J "Oh, Louise, how could you part Ivith him? He's so young. I S up- •xise you sent him to Miss Ran- liall's Academy- Such nice chil- liren go there-" 1 * : Oh, no. Ted goes with Eleanor |o the public scl il." "Do you 'nk that's wise? He'll |ncct such horrid boys there.' "They're the boys he'll have to • neel liter in life, so he might as Hvell get to know them now, don't J'Oti think. Josie? And Ted is very l.tocky and able to look after him- IrelC." I "But Miss Randall's Academy is J;o refined. Sadie is planning lo l-cnd ho: Imo^cne ther* soou." "Oh, Tmogene!" Louise had a swift vision of that precocious child's sophisticated manner. 'That's different. She wants to acquire the airs and graces. But Ted doesn't. He wants to learn Ihings really worth while. Besides I wouldn't think of going to the expense of sending Ted to a private school when a good public school is so handy." "Expcnsd" Josie thought, pouncing on the word. She told herself that Louise Weston couldn't afford a private school, and was jtisl pretending she thought the public school was better. But Josie smiled sweetly as she prepared to go on her way. "You must come in and see me real soon, Louise." * * • T>Y the end of the week the house had been thoroughly over- j hauled. Uscle ; odds and ends' had been thrown away, and now; everything was in excellent order. Harry had never found it convenient for Louire to have a maid, Two small children had kept her loo busy to investigate out~o.f-the- way corners. Besides that Louise loved to sew. She add" * many delicate touches to Ihe ugly fashions of the day. The children's clothes were beautifully embroidered. If anything ever happened to Harry, Louise could set up as a dressmaker. She thought that the clothes she made for herself and Eleanor were much finer and more stylish than anything Madame O'Reilly hnd ever made for Sadie and hrr lillle girl. IxHiisc had left the cleaning of the hall bedroom lo Ihe last. This was used quite frankly as a store- toom. Here she kept her machine, her cutting lable, the baby's crib and-high chair, some of the toys the children liked to play with on a rainy day. On one side of the room in solitary dignity stood the hope chest. Us polished surface! j dimmed by ihe neglect of years.] Louise regarded it in some doubt. She approached it with a cer- uiin hesitancy, almost with dread. The key turned stiffly in the lock as if it were reluctant to revive the past. With an effort, spiritual as well as physical, I.OUJSG lifted the cover of the chest. She knelt down beside it and raised the cloth with which she hud covered the contents. Here were her treasures—sev- e v al rolls of canvas of different size, the tin box that held her precious paints, some brushes stiff and dry, even the paint-smeared smock she had worn while she worked- As the beloved pninty smell assailed her nostrils, Louise buried her face in her arms. "And what am I going to do about it?" she asked herself finally as she mopped her eyes. "What's the use of keeping up the pretense? I might as well admit I'm beaten. Harry never did care about my work. He never intended to let me go on with it. He pretended he did so that I'd marry him. He knew I never would have married him if I'd known it meant giving up iny ;. And he's got the upper hand. He never gives me a cent relevision- Tonite, Tomorrow \VMCT, Memphis, Channel UESDAY NIGHT, SEPTEMBER 9 6:00 Midwestern Hayridc 7:00 Boss Lady. 7:30 Circle Theatre 8:00 Amateur Hour 8:<I5 Dr. Fixum 9:00 Summer Theatre 0:00 I've Got A Secret 0:30 News 0:40 Pantomine quiz 1:10 Weather 1:15 City Hospital 1:45 News 11:50 Sirrn Off WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10 7:00 Today T:23 News 7:30 Today 7:55 News 8:00 Prologue to Future 8:30 Breakfast Party 9:00 Mrs. U.S.A. 9:30 Strike It Rich 10:00 Storyland 10:15 Love of Life 10:30 Search tor Tomorrow 10:45 Morning Meditation tliOO Film Featurette 11:45 Guiding Light 12:00 News 12:15 Farm News 12:30 Homemakers Program 1:00 Big Payoff 1:30 Welcome Traveler 2:00 Kate Smith 3:00 Hawkins Falls 3:15 Oabby Hayes 3:30 Howdy Doody 4:00 News 4:05 Berl Olswanger 4:30 Space Cadets 4:45 Hnrtoons 5:00 Film Featurette 5:15 News 5:25 Weather 5:30 Those Two 5:45 News Caravan 6:00 Youth Wants to Know 6:30 Juvenile Jury 7:00 TV Theatre 8:00 The Unexpected 8:30 Dangerous Assignment 9:00 Dr. Fixmn 9:30 Film Featurette 9:45 Film FeaUirette 10:00 The Hunter 10:30 News 10:40 Rocky King 11:10 Weather 11:15 News 11:40 Sign OK for myself. I shall never be able lo go on with il. But I must 'I hate him so. T e got lo live wilh him. I cnn'l stand it to see how small he is—how cruel!" » » » A ND yet, as she grew calmer, Louise had lo ndmit that Harry had not been really stingy. But he embarrassed her by never Diving her any pocket money, and she was too proud to keep asking for it. When she went to market she charged everything. At first she had been a little anxious when the bills came in, but Harry had paid them all without a murmur. Harry never begrudged her a new dross either, when she said she needed one. To be sure, she was clever with her needle, end her clothes cost very little. But it irked her lo feel that she had to account for every penny lo her husband. "It's as if I were a child—or an irresponsible person who couldn't be trusted. Surely I've proved (hat I have f'od sense." iXo B« CouUuueU) HflLTCRS (OflLITY SHOE SHOP 121 W. MAIN ST.
