Phone 8962 SECOND MAN on the Ticket XVII 'pHE plane was Banking, and 1 saw the lights of an airport down below. The hostess passed smiling along the aisle, reminding Us to buckle our safely bells. "Lucy." 1 said, "you're a very .fendsome girl, but I didn't think fl(! was necessary for me to tell you that. You're pretty well aware of it already. It shows in everything you do." 1 "It does?" she said tightly How?" 2 "Well, in the way you walk " jil said, "That little wiggle." "I don'l wiggle!" •Yes." I said. -You wiggle. i And it shows in that smile of •» yours. It's sort of contented. J When you smile at a guy you V make him think he's just a mirror ,5 reflecting il back at you." "You heel." said Lucy. "And it shows in the way you pat your hair and look at your '£ nails and lift your right shoulder,' 1 il went on. "It shows all over \ -you." "Mr. Mason," she said. "You j} say the nicest things." "You asked me." I said. "1 | wasn't criticizing. It's usually that -. way wilh your type. Girls who have been around are always ;preUy sure of themselves." ; "Been—around?" Lucy said. : -You know what I mean," I [ -said. "Sophislicated. You're not denying you're sophisticated, are "I have an overlay of sophisti- i cation," Lucy said. "But it's wcar- 1 ing pretly thin right now. In Just J)Aj[<put a minute it will crack and S the primitive woman will break Ihrough and gouge out your eyes." The plane bumped on the runway, and Lucy, somewhat flushed, unbuckled her belt iti silence. The plane taxied up to the apron, and as sopn as the door was opened Lucy wenl ahead of me down the steps. I followed her into Ihe administration building, withoi:; & backward glance for Governor Warburton. In the waiting room, smoking a cfgar, was John Mills. He moved his head slightly a nod toward the door, and Lucy and 1 went on out and waited to claim the luggage. A moment later Governor Warburton came through the door and moved on past us into the darkness. TE were on a three-lane hign- way, driving very fast through the night. John Mills said, "H was a surprise when 1 got lhat phone call to meet you here. Willie. Al first 1 thought it was a gag. What's the trouble, anyhow?" Governor Warburton began explaining to his friend just what Ihe situation was, and 1 leaned back on the seal beside Lucy and lighted cigarcts for each of us. She took hers without a word. "We'll be about an hour on the road," I said. "Lucy, you and I always kid each other. 1 never guessed you were sensitive." "I'm not sensitive," she said. "No more than anybody." She took a deep drag of the cigarcl. "But, Roy, enough is enough. Yoii'd praise a cook for dishing a good dinner. You'd compliment a bootblack for a high shine. Some- limes you ought to praise a girl for—for—" "For what?" "For being a girl," said Lucy. The Governor turned his head. "Roy, John 3rd I have been !alk- ing il over. Now, il's pretty late. It will be touching midnight when we get to Hydelown." "Ginny Perkins," John Mills said. "She's our problem." "We don'l want Hie word to get out that I paid a midnight call on Miss Hallie," Ihe Governor said. He grinned at me. "You and the girl got along pretty well, didn'l you, Roy?" "Passably," I jaid. "Roy," the Governor said. "What do you think? Think you cr.n gel her oul of Ihe house?" "I'll try. Governor." I said. The headlights picked up a sign lhat said: "HYDETOWN- Rol.iry Meets Wednesday.." John Mills said, "I'll stop a way down the street, and we'l] get out there. Then you drive on up to the house, Mr. Mason," He turned the car to the curb and stopped by a sycamore tree. "We'll wait here," he said. "You take the car. Mr. Mason, and as soon as we see you drive away with Ginny. we'll hustle up there." "One more thing. Roy." the Governor said. -Bill Evers and 1 mapped this thing out. If we are seen here, we call up the note). There's a photographer there from Ego Magazine, lo make a big layout on Warburton Day, If we're seen we call him and pretend H was a prearranged stunt, a sentimental call on my old school- ma'am." I got behind the wheel and drove off, leaving Ihem grouped under Ihe sycamore tree. 1 stopped in front of Miss Haltie's cottage 100 yards farther on. A porch light was burning, and most of Ihe downstairs lights were on. I wcnl through Ihe gal« and up to the door. • • • J KNOCKED, and heard slow steps approaching. The door came open a few inches and I stood facing Miss Harriet Perkins. The lines around her eyes tightened and she said sliflly. "So it's you. I suppose you've come for your reading lamp?" "The lamp was a present for you," "I don't accept bribes, young man," Miss Hattie said crisply. "Come in and get it." The lamp was on a hall table, the cord wrapf.ed around iu stem. Miss Hatlio picked it up and held it out lo me. "Just lake it along, young man." "Of course," I said. "But now thai I'm htrc, may 1 speak to Ginny a moment?" "Virginia's not here," Miss Haltie said. "Do you know where I can find her?" "At the depot," Miss Hattie said, with a shrug o! her vast shoulders. "She went down to the depot. Good night. Mr Mason."
