Main Phont 6716 «TrrE*YE got to find out exactly " what's in Northcott's mind," Ede said. Her eyes, slightly hooded, fastened on Reagan. "Now ieU me something about yourself." Reagan jerked up his head in surprise. He laughed again, the laugh that reminded Fxie vaguely of the roar of a bull. "Me? There Isn't much to tell. I'm from the wrong side of the tracks. Self- tducated a\ night school and so on. Your father took me on as a kid, IS years ago, and he's helped me along. I owe him a lot and I'm not forgetting it. That's all, except that I'm ambitious. A guy like me, with no plush background, has to b* or he doesn't march in the parade." i "And you' jrtrll want to stick by the ship?" Reagan's eyes were bright blue and bold. "More than ever." Again Ede felt the aura of power ihat seemed to emanate from Reagan. Undoubtedly, she thought, he would be a good man to have on one's side. . "That's that, then, for the present," she said, getting to her feet "Wei) tabs «gain, Mr. Reagan. Very ioon. And maybe, between u«, we'll find some way to lick Mr. Northcott." FLOOD'S reply to Ede's tetter wai prompt, »nd duly sympathetic. He objected, however, to coming to New York at thb time and gave a valid reason for his objection. The play was progressing smoothly. He had overcome the knotty problem of the second act and from this point on everything ought to be clear sailing. But he did not want the confusion of packing up and coming home until the thing was finished. He was missing her like the devil. He hoped she'd get things straightened out in that advertising agency and that they'd soon be able to resume their normal life. Would she mind very much if he stayed in Bermuda for another month? Ede would not. In fact, Ede tell a relief that she was almost ashamed of. Having Peter, with his propensity tor treading Ihe heights-one day and plumbing the depths the next, on her hands lust now would only complicate the issue. Besides, it might be the healthiest thing in the world (or Peter to have no one but himself to lean on [or a while. She wrote him a charming and wifely letter agreeing that his proposal was all for the best. She hoped, privately, that her temporary satisfaction with the arrangement was not too palpable between the lines. With Peter off her mind, Edith Flood plunged into the advertising business in a big way. She amazed everyone, including herself. As ruthlessly as her father would have done it, she cornered Dan Reagan time after time and picked his brains. She;made herself familiar with the (unction and workings of every department. In three weeks she had a pretty fair idea of what the business was all about. Reagan said, without undue originality, that she certainly was a "chip oft the old block." Even Myron Frey, moony and detached, came down out of the clouds long enough to observe that Ede was "a worse slave-driver than the Old Man," Ede merely smiled. These two gentlemen were not problems. But her brother Jeffrey was another story. Jeff, apparently, had never been able to Ihrow off his initial resentment of her position. He seemed to lake th* terms of his father's will as a personal affront, n Ede's presence he was distant and inclined to sulk. And ne avoided being in her presence as much as possible. Ede noticed lint he was growing evasive, even to the point of slyness. He kept things from her, trivial things in the main, regarding the Morn-Glo Soap account. She also noticed another thing that disturbed her. Jeff was drinking a lol these days. She buttonholed him in his own office. "Got a minute. Jeff?" she said. He looked up, an expression of Irritation crossing his "face, • * • |?DE sal down on a corner of his desk and lit a cigaret. "1 met Sloneham in the hall * little while ago," she said. "He tells me that eight comprehensive layouts for Morn-Glo had to be remade last night. With overtime on them." Jeft's eyes became wary. "So what? That happens once in a while. Northcott's as changeable os the wind." "I don't mind his being changeable," Ede said. "But Sloneham says this was our fault. We'll have 16 absorb the cost of the new layouts." "Well, we do. I fought Northcott on it, but I couldn't get to first 'base with him. And. in the frame of mind he's in, this is no time to get tough." "Listen, Jeff." she said. "It Isn't easy for me, practically a tyro at this business, to appear to interfere. But I've had a job wished on me and I've got to make some kind of a Bght of it. It would be better if you'd confide In me a little, instead of making things harder for me." "Harder for you?" He rolled his eyes beseechingly toward the ceiling. "What have 1 done? Someone's always got the knife out for me." In spite of herself she smiled. He was the perfect martyred little boy.
