"my parly," said Gil imperturbably, "will take care of itself Besides, I'll only be gone i few minutes." The boat shot away, leaving a broad white cicatrice" across the lace of the water. Ede spoke "I know what you're thinking, Gil That I ordered Pete home and he turned me down. Now I'm going myself to try to save face. But I really do have a headache." "I never doubted it," Gil snid. sincerely. Then: "Mind if I as k you something Ede?" "Not at all." "Well, it's norm of my business ot course, but4^what's,lhe matter with Peter Flood?" She looked at him quickly Just why do you ask that, Gil?" "Because," Summerfield said "I simply can't understand a man who. done something good, like Pereri play, sort of giving out. If I —he drew a breath—"had that much on the ball, I'd see that I didn't lose it." . "Why, Gil." There was astonishment in tde's voice. "You actually jound envious." "Perhaps 1 am. It would be nice to do something in this world." "And I thought," Ede said, "that you were just a playboy." "Oh, I am," said Gil, a little bitterly. "But i don't enjoy it much." "Didn't you used to paint?" "Dabble al it, yes. But I haven't any real ability." "You probably mean," Ede said, "that you haven't any real incentive." "Maybe. Bui, in my way, 1 do try Io do ihings. I gel thwarted, though. For instance"—lie hesitated—"keep Ihis under your hat, hde! But I went to New York recently and tried to gel into an airline as a pilot. Flying planes is about all I can do that's of any use. But they turned me down cold because of this gimpy leg of mine. Which, queerly enough, came from a plane crash in the war." Ede was silent a moment. "Shall I tell you what's wrong with Pete?" she ashed, al last "If you like." "H won't be easy," fide said. But you are an old friend Very confidentially, Gil, Peter feels sold down the river." Gil shook his head, i don't get iL" jgDE seemed Io pick her words. "My falher was perfectly right about Pcler. But I was slarry- eyed and couldn't see it. Peter was a fortune hunter, Gil." "Look," said Gil, uncomfortably "you don't have to go on." "Can't you see that I want to tell somebody? Somebody I can trust? U may sound awfully disloyal, bul I've kepi it to myself a long time. Now I'm spilling over. Peter does feel sold out. He married money, but he didn't 3d it. So he's been sulking. For three years. And he's laid down on his own-job. He doesn't seem able to work. And he spends— this is rather humiliitlnf—• lot of time bemoaning hi« fate." let an interval go, then said: .' Want my advice?" ', "No," said Ede. "I jusl wanted to tell somebody." "My advice would be," he disregarded her, "to break it up. Peter didn't play fair m Ux first place." Ede bi! her lip. "Can't b« done. 1 made a bargain, so I'll stick by it." The dusky shut off hii moior. They glided silently up t» a dock. "I'll walk to the cottage with you," Gil oftcred. On Die way, Kde pressed hii arm. "You'll forget that 1 broke down and talked tonight, Gil?" He inclined his dark head. "ID forget Io tell anyone *ls« ; anyhow." • • • r PHE cottage stood on a littlt hill. *• Pink oleander bushes clustered about H.

'Just a quickie. I'll havi to ret back soon." Ede opened the door, lit » light in the small vestibule. A telegram lay on Ihe Boor and she picked it up idly.' "Good news from Pete's agent, I hope," the began. "He certainly needs ..." She tore open the envelope »nd glanced at the lines of the telegram. Her eyes halted abruptly and traveled over the wording again. Then she stopped again tad stared a< the piece of paper. The wire wa« from her brother Jeff. It said: . , . £ "Father critically in. COOK at once." White-faced and ailent, «h« handed it to Gil. He read it, then put an impulsive arm around her shoulder*. 'Ede, U there's the lightest thing I can do ..." She steadied herself. "There kt one thing. Go back and collect Pele. Tell him that I'm flying . home, tomorrow. 1 * (To Be AUTO GLASS Installed Blyrhevitle Glass & Paint Co 136 R. Main ['hone 6716 STOP!
