"Mostly > train ride, then the Birmingham speech tomorrow nighL Next stop. Hydelown." "That's what I'm thinking," said the Governor. "Next stop, Hydetown." He glanced at me. "Roy, how was the piane service to Hydetown?** "Not good. Governor." "Plane crowded?" "Not very." "Then I suppose we could get accommodations without too much trouble?" "We?" said Bill. "I was thinking I might make a quick trip to Ilydelown and talk to Miss Hattie," the Governor said. "You mean leave the train?'" "Why not?" the Governor said mildly. "There's nothing on the schedule tomorrow but a train ride, I'll be in Birmingham for my speech tomorrow night, Bill." "And how do you tiling you're going to get to Birmingham, Governor?" "Fly." "No," BiH said. "Positively no You'd be recognized on the plane'. It would start a raft ot rumors " "I'll lake that chance," Ihe Gov- I ernor said. "I have to." He looked at his watch. "It's about time to call on the Governor of Mississippi. Bill, you work out the details. Get the plane tickets. Roy, you'll come ivith me." "I£ anybody goes, I'm going" Bill said. , -You'll be needed on the train." "But, Governor, how about your Birmingham speech? You haven't prepared your Birmingham The Governor hesitated • mo lent "I'll take Lucj along," he iW. TH dictate H to her on the plane." "Not Lucy," BiH said. -McDon- aJd wlU wonder what happened to her. She can't go." "Then I'U speak off the cuff In Birmingham," the Governor said. "Ive done it before. Now look here, BiH, get John Mills on the telephone and ask him to meet us at the airport" JJIT-L scowled, and pressed his lips together, and blew out a hissing breath of protest, but he was on the telephone calling the airport when I l cti i he Governor's suite. I had a good lunch at a cafe on Capitol Street and walked to the.train. I was tired, and was on my way to my drawing room when I met Clyde McDonald in She aisle. His eyes opened wide. "Say," he said, "1 thought you were in Hydetown." "I just got back," I said wearily and it was an instant before I realized what his words meant. I looked at him sharply and said What gave you the idea 1 was in uydotown?" A grin spread on Clyde McDonald's fat, malicious face Grapevine," he said. I frowned. It was not like Lucy otrawn to be indiscreet, and I was choosing the words I would say to her as McDonald pushed on past me. I hesitated a moment, then followed and saw him get- ling his suitcase out ot his drawing room, ^Going somewhere?" I asked. 'I'm dropping off here in Jackson," he Siild. ' "We thought .you'd be slaying with us until we goi to Hydetown," I said. "I don't wait for news to rome Jo me," Clyde said, and gave me a one-sided grk. "I go after my news." 'Have a good trip," I said, and turned Into my own drawing room. I waited there, watching tut UM winrtnw. until I uw hu» get off the train, suitcase in hand then I went down to the platform and followed him. He went into the station, bought a ticket, and moved toward the gate. A chalked notice suited the train would leave at 2:18. 1 looked up the 2:18 in the timetable. It was not a Washington train. I was sure then where Clyde McDonald waj bound. He was going 10 Hydetown, and he had undoubtedly received a telegram from Melvin Fisher. That was how he knew I had been to Hydetown. 1 telephoned the Governor's suite at the hotel, and Lucy Strawn answered- She told me that Bill and the Governor had gone on to the Governor's mansion for lunch, and I said, "How about your luncheon date?" "I'm wailing." she said. "Why?" "It will be a long wait,- I said. "Clyde went to Hydetown." "He did?" [,ury cried. "Thai's swell. Then I can go with you and the Governor, after all." "It's up to the Governor," 1 said. "Roy," Lucy said, "the plane leaves at 7 o'clock, and I'm planning to get three tickets." • • » J^UCY STHAWN awakened me. She pushed the door of my drawing room open an inch or so and 1 heard her urgent whisper, 'Snap out of it, Roy. It's late." My window curtain was nearly closed, but through the gap at the bottom I could sec that it was dusk outside. I dressed and packed my suitcase, but did not lake time to shave. I lugged the suitcase to he Governor's car, and found Jiry wailing with a portable ypewritcr, a small overnight case and a Gladstone bag belonging to he Governor. "Come on," said I.ucy, and picked up her overnight case. 1 grunted and reached for the porl- ahto and the Governor's ba^. She cd Hie way to the station plat- orm and I foiloived her In silence through the waiting room to » cab. Once inside 11 I said, "Don't >e so conspiratorial Where's the Governor?" "We're picking him up," Lucy said. "Juri relax, Roy." <X» I Television- Tonire, Tomorrow WMCT.
