She brought nw up to date on a number of my old classmates, and then I asked: "Did you ever teach • boy named David Carlson—six •r eight yean back?" "Indeed I did!" she exclaimed, jetting her cup down abnipily. "I -^ was his homeroom tencher in Ifinlh «•' grade. He quit school in May thai year, and it was a blow to me. How do you happen to know him I told her briefly. She, listened with acule interest. "It's funny, your mentioning r>avid," she said reflectively. "Because I was Ihinking about him jus« recently. There are many cases o< bright young boys who hate if school. But David Is, by any standards, wcerLionnt. The day he loft school, he came to me at closing time and said gootlby so sweetly, such a big, manly-looking chap. 1 sat there at my desk after he'd gone and just cried. I thought I'd failed, somehow," I poured her another cup of tea and said, "You're discouraging me. You tried and failed." "Well, possibly the years have improved his home situation. He did have very real family troubles and I Ihink that's the inain reason he couldn't adjust lo school. The fa'.her drank, and somelimcs go! pul in jail, and the home was held together by the mother.

I'm no geneticist, but T knelv the quality of David's mind. "One night about a year ago t was coming home from a movie with my sister and her husband, and I saw David. He was with crowd of loud, ill-dressed men and women, who were straggling along the sidewalk, taking up most of the room. He looked me full in the face, a long, desperate sort of look. But he didn't speak or give sign of recognition, and "the incident has rather haunled me at limes since." eld up » spoon next, turning ft his way and that, handling it with ;en lien ess and respect "Sterling ,ilver—that much I do know. But low much would just a spoorj Iik« this cost?" T told him and h« wrinkled hfa brow. "And yet-you eat off it every day!" "There's no point in having hings if you don't use them." I picked up the silver cake knife and ran my fingers over it, "Tliis silver was going lo be my vedding presenl lo Kathy. J bought silver wilh any exlra money that came my way. Now 1 lave n complete service for eight and no Kathy.* David ambled around the room, pricing each ilem. I Jumped him. 'Oh, come ofT il, David. The cost locsn't matter." . . "I guess not, but 1 can't help comparing the way you live to. ... Tell me somelhing, Hector. How much money do you make?" W/HEN David arrived that night " he had a package wilh him. "Here," he said. place that glass "This is to re- I dropped last night when I was drying dishes." "Don't be a dope. I have seven more." "It's the principle of the thing," answered David. Then, ingenuously, "But I didn't know what an ox- pensive thing I was dropping. A buck and a quarter for just a glass!" "That's called a fooled tumbler,' I corrected. "Kathy and I picked out the patlcrn years ago. Gave Ihem lo each olhcr for birthdays and such. I've got eight goblets too." He took down a teacup and held it up curiously. "This here cup now, I guess it was expensive too?' "That's English bone china, am yes, I guess it was. I dirtn't have to buy it, Ihough. Molher used i for years, and gave it to Kalhy anc me when she moved to California.' He was hot on the trail now.

Finally he muttered, "You live so nice!" T brought him a cup of coffee. "And you want to know how I do it?" "Yes!" He looked at me humbly. 'I'd like to know how to spend money." For the rest of the evening, 1 tried to lell him. It was an inler- csling conversation, to me, I hadn't ever analyzed how I did spend it. Frugality is so habit- forming. He listened as though every word was a pearl of wisdom, and I had to watch myself to be sure I didn't overstate or understate facts. When the subject got around to clothes, he insisted on going lo my closet and examining every item. "You know," he said, "I'd sure like lo have me a gabardine raincoat like yours.
