"Jodie" Nabers For Municipal Judge G. w. Barham cSECOND MAN on the Ticket i" I XIV 'T'EfE Governor went on quickly with his story, "fie would have won the race, but he cast a shoe and Johnny Mills beat me out. So I went home with 95 cents in my pocket and my father was wailing for me with a big grin on his face and he said, 'Willie, I've got a surprise for you. Here's your sheepskin coat.' It was a surprise, all right. He had been down to the office and the package was there C. O. D., and he had paid the money. He gave it to me, and said, 'You owe me $15.95, Willie.'" "t.ucy,™ Bill Evcrs said. "Pour me a drink. There's a bottle in the bathroom." "Since you and Roy worked np that book, you know something about my father," the Governor said. "He was a very strict man, and I didn't have the courage lo tell him what had happened. I went up to my room and got out the cigar box. I took out $15 and added it to the 95 cents 1 had left and gave it (o my father, and I thought I could work like the devil and fill that box up again before Halloween. I had 10 days j|k do it. I sawed wood and I did ^Vv-ery kind of job a boy is capable of, but I couldn't set enough worlc. T sold the coat to Mealhead Fisher, and he beat me down In $6 for It, but Halloween got closer and closer and t was still short, so I ' went to Miss Hatlic and told her the story." Lucy Strawn brought Bill Evers his drink, and he look two prodigious gulps. Lucy said softly, "Rco. Governor, you were only a kid. You got caueht in the middle. •y UwUi Lanh» iVhat's wrong with that? You paid the money back, didn't you?" "Yes," the Governor said. "I brought the box to Miss Hallie, ind she made up the difference, and for a couple of months I stayed after school every day and carried wood and ashes and washed the -blackboards and cleaned the erasers and did every other job Miss Hattie could think of, ami she had imagination. 1 worked Ihe money out, and she never said anything about it to anybody. It was just between Miss Hattie and myself." "But now," I said miserably. "Now she's threatening fo tell." "Hoy," the Governor said, "it's not your fault, but you couldn't lave chosen worse words to put n that book if you'd been Clyde McDonald himself. In the first Dlace. my marks were poor. In the second place, what she kept me after school for was not, in icr view, a 'minor juvenile misdemeanor, 1 as you called iL In the third place, she never predicted jreat things for me. She predicted that I'd end up in reform school." "So she's planning to tell the story when it will hurt the most," Bill ssid. "How the candidate for Vice President of the Uniled Stales, the sober budget balancer, Ihe honest adminislralor, dipped into funds entrusted to his care and bet it on a horse race." 'Wow, Bill," the Governor broke in. "It wasn't that way. It—" "II will be that way to Clyde McDonald," Bill Evcrs said. 'T'HE Governor winced, but did not protest, and an uneasy silence descended on Ihe room, finished his drink and said, "The worst thing lhat ever happened lo us was when Hoy Mason learned to read and write." "Now that's enough," Governor Warbur'on said sharply. "It's not Roy's fault. The fault is all mine. I should have read the book." "Okay," Bill Evers soid. '"Sorry, Roy." "STiat's done is don«, M the Coy- ernor said. "Between us, Roy and [ have created a nasty little situation. The question is, what can ae done about it?" Bill looked up. "You got anything on her, Governor?" "On Miss Hattie?" The Governor smiled. "Of course not." "We've got to dig something jp," Bill said. "There must be some dirt somewhere." The Governor shook his head. 'You're not busting a law Miit now, FJill. We're dealing with a fine old lady." "All right," Bill said. "But we've got to get to her somehow. We've got to, Governor." "One thing I recall about Miss Hallie," the Governor said. "She's a very determined woman. If she makes up her mini, there's noth- ng much we can do." "There must be some way to get to her," Bill said, and looked at me. "How about it, Roy?" "Well," I said. "She's got a grandniecc she's pretty fond of. That's the only avenue I see " "What age?" Bill asked. "Young," I said! "And pretty." "L«ok at him," said Lucy Strawn. "He's blushing." • • • WHETHER I had blushed before, " I was not sure, but certainly ner remark reddened my ears. I felt sclt-conscious and Bill Evers did not help. He snapped his fingers and said, "If it's that way, let's put Roy to work on the grandniece." He looked hard at me. "Don't you ever shave?" "When I get 3 chance. I've been up two nighLs running." "Well, get shaved and get a clean shirt and get back to Hydetown," Bill said. "Gel that grandniece." "That's no use, cither," I said. "I tried that I'm afraid she won't cooperate." "So you tried that," Lucy said. I looked a•; her, and said, "1 had a Job to do." "Well," said Lucy, "any time I can help you in your work, please let me knou." "Your own job keeps you pretty busy, doesn'.ljt?" I said. "And by the way, whurt! is Clyde today?" " "I'm seeing him at lunch," she said smr~!y. (To l OUT OUR WAY By J. R.
