"Listen, Ede," he .••aid, "there are just two things I've loved in life aside from whatever latent affection I've had lor you brats. "First, yrmr mother. Before she died, I promised her I'd see that you children had the things yon wanted. I don't think I've kcpl that promise very well. In your case, Ede, I failed. But I didn'1 like that Pete flood business and I blew up. 1 thought, though, thai you'd com* crawling back home some day. You've too much character for that, I should have known better. You'd' stick to bargain if it killed you, just as '. would." Something of a sigh escaped the dying man's Hps. "Bui I wish you had. Things aren'l right with you.** Ede bit her Irp. No keeping anything from this shrewd father o; hers. "But," co n t In it e d, Cornelius "you'll have to work out your own problems. The point is that 1 wan you to look out for the others as well, seeing that you have a few grain* of sense in spite of marrying Peter Flood. "And that brings m* to other love—the business, Ede. Now I could easily have followed you mother 1 * wishes by settling tms funds on all of you and letting i go at that You'd have been taken care of and imbeciles, like Jeff anc Myron, would never have starvec But 1 don't do things thai wny Don't believe in it I took th I inherited and I doubled Copyright 1950 by NEA S«™<«, Inc. L I buiJt up my business arid, cad or alive, I want it lo go on. \nd 1 want it lo slay in my own amily. "Bui"—Ede could almost eel, as well as see, the gray eyes turning nl her—"there's only one f you with brains enough lo carry t on. That's you. Ede," "But, Dad." Ede was aghast, "I don't know beans , , ." ORNELIUS'S mouth worked in : annoyance. "Don't interrupt me. Of course, you don't know inything about the ' advertising nisiness. But you've got a head, laven't you? You can learn. And there's a man in the agency—Reagan—who can help you." "Rut what will Jeff and My- 3n—" "Fiddlesticks! They've nothing to say about what I do with my own business. And what I'm doing is giving it to you. I'm giving you 51 per cenl of the stock, a controlling interest. JetT and Myron have the rest, because 1 want it all In the family. In Jcnn's case, I've made a trust fund. 1 don't believe in that rot, mind you. But she's a child and I don't know what else to do about her.** Ede murmured, "You were very sensible." "I'm usually sensible. All this is in my will, in black and white It's unallerable. I saw to that. And let me tell you ~ something else Edith Frcy. You hang onto lha 51 per centl That business of mine Is a good one and it'll take care o all of you. I've said nothing abou the way profits are lo be split That's up to you. only don't make a tool of yourself. I want Jeff and Myron earning their way, Ajjd you, too. I'll not have you people lolling R round on incomes thai you don't lift a finger lo make," Ede'i brain was whirling .slightly. But she said, in a steady voice, "Very, well, Dad. If that's the way >ou want it, I'll do my besC" "It won't be ea*y T Ede," O1J Cornelius shook his head. "Thing! have been slipping lately. We'v« lost a couple of accounts and a couple of others are shaky. That's because I wasn't myself these last few months. 1 couldn't see to things properly. Reagtyi's done his best, but he couldn't save those accounts." He brooded. "Advertising agencies, the whole bunch of them, are like a pack of wolves. ..el one slip a little and the others louncc on il, trying lo grab what hey can." "Is it liring you lo talk so much, Da<!?" Ede asked, 'It is. Hut there mayn't be another chance lo talk." "Then tel! me about this man Reagan/ 1 said Ede. Ah," Cornelius fixed her with a pc lie t rating stare. "I said you lad brains. You know that you won't be able to rely on Jeff and Myron for anything, don't you? Well, I was coming to Reagan. He's a smart, hard-shooting Irishman. Right up out of the gutter, with his mind made up lo go places. And he has. He's the best man I've got. He'll be a M of help to you. Watch him though, Ede. Reagan's out for himseli. Bui as long as you keep him under control, he'll be valuable. Well, that's all I've got to say and I'm tired now." His lined old face twisted in a sardonic grin. "I wish you luck, Edilh. But remember, keep control. If you don't, you're licked." J7DE got up. She laid a cool ftrm hand on her father's forehead. "And about Peter, Dad," she said, gently. "You're not still—still sore about that, are you?" "I don't know," said Cornelius resignedly. **I suppose, now that I'm using you' for a purpose of my own, I'll have to pay for it by forgiving you, in part I say, 'in part,' mind you. I never forgive— entirely. Some day, though, you'll see that I was right. That fellow'* no good. You've got brains. Ede, but not as many an I hav*. If you had, you'd have seen it lor yourself long ago," Erke left him fben. It was the last time she saw her father aliv*.
