"I've always had a yen for wnall-town girls," I said. "I've always had a yen to live in a small town myself." •aid. "There's nothing to do.' Take tonight. Bingo! My gosh, what an exciting evening." •1 thought it was fun," I said. She shrugged. "And the biggest Hiing since I can remember wil! fee Warburton Day." My worries returned. -Ginnj, it we only knew what to expect, so that we could be prepared. Can't you give me a hint what your aunt has on her mind." "So that's It," Ginny said, •That's what?" "A kiss in the starlight, under the rose trellis," Ginny said. "Small-town girl mells and tells •11. Was that it, Mr. Mason?" "Definitely not," I said, aod Jried to kiss her. jff But she rtrew away saying, "But I'm not telling all. I'm not telling anything." "Ginny," I said, "that wasn't why I kissed you. It never entered, my head. Believe me." I look one of her hands. "The starlight and the roses are pretty powerful, but I'm the one who melted." i got my arm around her and this time she did not resist. What 1 had said was not far from the truth; I was pretty well melled. It was a long, exciting Momeat under the rose trellir, and was interrupted when the light in the upstairs /bedroom went off and Ginny jumped to her feet and moved quickly away, toward the door. I followed. Under the o v e r h a •• „ of the caves she turned and whispered, "If she looked out the window she could see us there." "But she can't see us here." 'Wow that's enough," Ginny whispered. "There are lots of stars and lots of roses and I might melt after all. Good night, Mr. Mason " "Wait," I said. But she had opened the door and light came brightly through. "Are you really leaving in tile morning?" she asked. "Yes." "But you're coming back Wednesday, aren't you?". "I'll see you at the dance." I saw & faint smile on her lips,. "Do you know Clyde McDonald?" "Yes," "He's going to stay with us Wednesday --'jht," she said. 'Ginny," I said, "what are you getting at?" "Getting at?" Her blue eyes opened wide. "What do you mean?" "Clyde McDonald as a topic of conversation simply isn't on the agenda for tonight," I said. 'I was only curious," she said. "After all, he's staying here Wednesday night. Is he good-looking?" I shrugged, "They say he goes for blondes." Ginny laughed, said, "Good night, Mr. Mason," and closed the door. T.STOOD a moment in the dark•*• ness, looking at the closed door, then I walked slowly bock to (he hotel. I thought that Ginny Perkins was a litde arch, and that possibly she woiked overtime at being girlish, but these were the sort of critical reservations a man makes when he is interested in • girl; they were faults that would change with U BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)

It had been another night with practically no sleep. I had checked the Governor's schedule the night before in Hydetown and decided to meet the train in Jackson and give a full report, and I was weary and depressed as 1 took- a taxi from the airport to the Uiiion Station. The clock hands in the station stood at well pnst H o'clock when 1 arrived, and the lack of crowd showed that Governor Warburton must already have come through, but I went into the station to in- vesligate. • • • r r>HE special train had not yet been shunted to a siding 1 walked back to the Governor's private car and swung aboard. I found no one there, and went on to the work car ahead, where 1 heard the clatter of typewriters and the thumping noise of the mimeographing machine. As I entered the car a sprightly voice said, "Well, Kit Carson, what's doing up ahead? Any Indian signs? Lucy Strawn sat at her desk by the window, with sunlight on her warm brown hair. "There are Indian signs but 1 can't read them," I said. "Where's everybody?" "Everybody's at the hotel" Lucy said. "But here's anybody. What did you find out?" I leaned against her dtsk. 'Nothing." "Nothing at all?" Lucy frowned. "Look, Roy, this is serious." "I took it seriously," I said. "What 1 mean is 1 didn'l find c.-.y- thing that made any sense, only that the Governor's old schoolteacher has graded him prcttv low. She's not coming to the reception." "Why not?" "I don't know why not. Bill over at the hotel, too?" "Yes." "I think I'd teller go over," I said. "Where's the holer" "I'll show you," Lucy said.
