I T was sometime along in here that David voluntarily asked me one night to correct his grammar. Until this point I had kept a tight grip on myself, and Tct his speech alone. His request came in the nick of time, for 1 was about to break down and ask him at least to leave the S off anywhere and somewhere. Whenever he said "somewheres" I cringed. So began the gradual, halting struggle toward better English. It was in the fall, I guess it must have been around the first of November, that an astonishing ana dramatic thing happened, right »t the Art School Itself. Our Saturday classes were al ways largest, because they attracted people who worked weekdays. They were working quietly, O"d so 1 retired down trie hall to the Faculty Loung intending to make out my r attendance and gradi report. I was oddly elated at the mo ment, because I had just caugh that little Jill Ormond, with the spaniel eyes and the beautiful hands, secretly sketching me in stead of the model. Really a rathe interesting little girl—that. I likec the way her slippery-clean browi hair fell every which way whe she was absorbed in tier work. Suddenly Miss Cora Payne, th prim old secretary to the directoi minced In the door. "Ah. thcr you are, Mr. Fielding! I've bee lookine all over (or you, to you that you have a—well, there a woman in the office who wan' lo speak lo you." "Okay. Show her in here, wi you? Thanks." Miss Payne looked t. me odd as she pitly-pattec' out the doo quor and heavy perfume. I rose stantly and faced her politely, te looked vaguely familiar. "Mr. Fielding, 1 presume?" she J<i grandiosely. Her voice was usky and scratchy, as though she ceded to clear her throat "Yes, that's right" "Well, I'm Ida Carlson—Dave's ife." The shock almost felled me ere was a Rubens nude, with othes on. Thick shoulders, grca endulous breasts, little pufT> ands, white and unwholesome ubcns at least used models with ood bone structure to carry thcii eight, but if there were any gooc ones underlying this heavy en elope of flesh, 1 couldn't see icm. She tossed her coat, a brown armcnt with a wide matted wolf ollar. on the table, and sal down eavily. "It's nice to meet you," I said "Your ic.irtily, stalling for time. lusband is certainly a bright •oung fellow." "Yeah, ain't he just, though?" She grinned, and fixed me with a wise st.ire out ol her bloodshot ittle eyes. She was not noticeably drunk, but neither was she completely sober. 'I've often told him he musl jring you around to my place someday for dinner," 1 lied. My, wouldn't that be cozy?' she said, and giggled. 1 stared back at her. Her dress, which was oi some sort ol dowered rayon, was tight-fitting and strained al every seam. I couldn't help noticing that she had spilled chili down the iront ol it 'You know something?" shi said. "Dave's wasting all his ttmi reading since he met up with you He ne\cr used lo sit around wilh "Well, he's older now, and he was in the Army a while—maybe icked up a taste for'it there." She went on, "Don't go blaming t on the Army. I tell you. it's getting serious. One of the other irivcrs works for Acme Truck ole me Dave's been keeping i>ookj n the cab, and reading whenever ain't driving or loading. 1 Know enough about psychology to enow that something's wrong. He adn't oughta try to excapc from reality nlin lime." 'He's not hurling anyone." 'How do you know?" she asked 3elligerently. "I'm his .wife — 1 know whn he's rur-'ing, 1 guess. Another thing, he's gelling fussy. Why, he rented a steamer and took all the wallpaper off the walls. Says he's gonna paint them light green come his day off. Make the landlord do it, I say. Why should we spend our money fixing up that old hole for the next tenant?" "Lots of men like to do repairl around the honse," I said. "And this photography kick of is 1 . One night a week he don't et home afore midnight, wnat .*ilh setting aroun' in that class own to the YMCA.

"Come to the point," 1 said impatiently. She got red in the fact and leaned forward, thrusting her face closer to mine. "I'll tell you," she said. "Jus! this—lay ofll Don't go planting any more uppity ideas in Daves head. I don", know what your angle is. Maybe you wanta make like the Great White Father. I'm wise lo you professor*.
