TDIIX EVSRS moved hfc' hands uneasily and «aid: "! don't »uppos« there was any g-girl trouble—anything like that?" "Young man, I haven't lived in Hydetown for 30 years," the Governor said, and smiled. "The only girl I had any trouble with was R;-,:h, and that trouble ended when I married her." "I don't )ike it," Bill said "I don't like H at all. What could it be?" -There couldn't be wiything," the Governor said. "Nothing important, anyhow." "Can you think of anything unimportant then, Governor?" Bill asked. "It doesn't take much for McDonald to go to work on." "Not even anything unimportant, Bill." Bill d r o - p e d into = chair. "Frankly, this worries me. You can't think of anything, Governor. But why should the guy send > tcjegram like that?" He looked up. Governor, you got any friends in Hydetown?" "I think so." the Governor said. "Johnny Mills, the present county chairman, was my friend. I know of ^olhing to change him." "I'll send him * wire," said Bill. Th« Governor sat up struighter. "You'll do nothing o£ the sort," he sam snarpiy. "You'd oniy mr up trouble, doing that, when there isn't any troul- to begin with Just let it ride. Bill." Bill was on his feet again, walking up and down, shaking his head. "No," ne said. "SVe've got lo find OUL Governor I'll take a plane to MAN on the Ticket "Somebody has to go," Bill said. 'We can't just let it ride.* He looked a! me, considered, then gave his head a decided shake. "No. Roy's not,tough enough lor the job." Lucy Strawn smiled. "Mavbe that's why he's just the man to do H," «he said. • • • J DIDN'T like her characterization ot me, nor the cozy tone she used, but before I could protest, her smile widened and she said, "Or- the surface, thai is. Roy. You're actually a stinker underneath." She turned to the Governor. "Don't you think he'd be good?" The Governor grinned. "Yes. Lucy. I do think so. How about it, Roy? You want to run over to Hydetown and talk to Johnny Mills?" "But, Governor, how about your speeches:" 1 said. "We've got to get those speeches lined up." "Roy, before you rarre along I made quite & few speeches on my own," the Governor said. "Now, Governor, I didn't mean—" 'I know what you meant, Roy," he said softly. "You've been a tremendous help to me and I'm grateful right down to my bones. But maybe Bill is right. Mayhe you can be more help to me in Hydetown right now than here." "Well, naturally I'll go. Governor." said. "If that's what you want." "I wish you would, Roy." "All right, then," Bill Evers said dubiously. "But. Roy, you've got to play 'em close lo your chest. Don't let on why you're iherc. except to Mr. Mills," "Of course not," 1 said. •Also." the Governor put In. "Roy's our man because he's been to Hydetown. He knows the place." "Why, I've never been to Hydetown. Governor." 1 said. He looked at me. His eyes were tired. "Oh. J thought maybe you J»«« wlwa vou w«r* ing me up, Roy." "There wasn't time," : said. "It was « rush job, you know, and Bill and I just talked to everyone w« could and looked up the newspaper files." "Oh," said the Governor. • ' • 'TPHE Plane set me down at an airport « miles from Hydetown at hall p aF t four m t t, e morning, as a seeping, orange dawn began to outline the low. regular hillj of that Southern country. There was no bus for « couple of hours, but 1 found a taxi to run me over to Hydetown. Anyone who has driven from New York to Florida by the inland route has passed through Hydetown, but the odds are that not one in 10,000 stopped there, unless the car had a flat. The highway narrows t- the main street of the town, and there are two traffic lights, ente inp and leaving Hydetown. ""he buildings along the main -treet are solid, two-story red brick with flat roofs forming exact planes on opposite sides of the street. I drove into Hydelown about half past five, arid there was not another car parked or moving on the street, not a door opened yet I carried my bag into the fisher Arms Hotel. The lobby was small, and crowded with leather chairs comfortably grouped so that drummers could sit and gaze out huge plate-glass windows at the street. The office was enclosed by » watst-high railing and counter, but the two chairs 'behind the railing were unoccupied. No one was about, I put my bag by the window and dropped into one ot the big leather chairs. 1 had not had breakfast, and did not light 8 cigaret. and 1 had that gloomy depression that comes on e man who has risen much loo early and faces a long find unaccustomed day. 1 had not been lo bed al all, and had slept only a lilti- on the piano. A truck passed through and dropped oft a Bundle o; newspapers at the drugstore across the street, and > pedestrian « so appeared, off to early iobs. .«!• Be C*aUnu«l) Political Announcements Tile Courier News Is authorized to announce the following candidates for the general election, November 4.
