'New York society girl, and Daniel Reagan, exigent hard-hit- ten ycnmg (ellow trom the wrong side ' of the tracks, would, have been ludicrous. But time changes things, alters and softens jtltig- rnents and values. She forced herself to meet Reagan's glittering challenging eyes. "Honestly, Dan, 1 don't Know. I like your friendship. And I — I've come to depend on you, more than you realize, perhaps. But anything else . . . well, I just don't know, that's all." Hfs reaction took her completely by surprise. "Why don't you say itT" he said almost savagely. "Why don't you come slr.-iighl out with it and give me (he works? Tell me that we come from two different worlds? That it's presumptuous of me even to consider such a thing?" He Initghed harshly. "Me? Imagine me getting this far out of bounds." Ede said, quietly, "Please stop, Dan. I don't like it." "You don't like . . ." He checked himself. "I'm sorry," he muttered. "You should be. You're too good to say things like that, Dan Reagan. What does It matter wnere you come from, or where I come trom, either? It's what we are 1950 b, NEA S*«, fee. now that counts. You Insult my intelligence when yon suggest that anything else would weigh with me. H 'I'm sure," Heagan said, rather stiffly, "trial 1 didn't mean to iii- J\ilt you." She put a hand on his arm. "Of course, you didn't. Let's forget it. And as for the—the other thing"—her voice dropped—"can't we just let It ride?" "Meaning?" His eyes seemed to burn into hers. "Meaning, Dan, that I told you the truth a moment ago. I just don't know. I'want time. To—to think " Reagan's left hand covered hers for a moment. The pressure of his big fingers almost hurt. "Fair enough," he said finally. "Bui, remember, you haven't said *No.' So I suppose I can .dream, can't I?" And Ede said, with « troubled little smile. "1 can't stop you from dreaming. Dan." • • • "p^DE was eternally grateful to Dan Reagan for his attitude during the next few weeks. She Had scarcely dared hope that he would make things so easy for ] her. But Reagan, she discovered somewhat to her surprise, had unsuspected sensitivity. He did not allude again to the incident that had taken place overlooking the Hudson. He seemed to regard the matter as closed, until such time as Kde herself cared to reopen St. Quite naturally, they drifted twck into their former, and slightly formal, business relationship. And only once in a while, when she was aware of Reagan's ej'es on her. their usual glitter replaced by a soft blue light,-,wai Ede reminded that Dan Reagan was in love, with her and that some day she would have to give him an answer. And then she heard from Heno. The divorce had b*en made absolute. Pcler Flood was out of her life. Tom'er. But when the newt came Rde had no lime to conjure with Ihc fascinating thought that she was once again a free woman. Old Mr. Lyons of the Lyons Bread Company had done on th« • rampage of his career, For once Heagan could make n« adway with the testy and mealy- mouthed old gentleman. Mr. Lyons, apparently, was on an unprecedented spree of campaign- killing and h« relused to be thwarted. Tn vain Reagan argued, high-pressured, bullied even. Mr. Lyons replied with threats and hints of dire step* that he mighl lake al any moment. He held the possible removal of his account over the agency like a club. Meanwhile nothing that Fr«y * Company evolved seemed to suit him. Stoneham and th» 'Copy group worked their hearts out. Pat Vernon made and remade layouts by the score, only to have them junked wllh discouraging rapidity. • • • ° R this intolerable situation Resgan assumed entire responsibility. "It's my fault," he told Ede_ ruefully. "I rammed that newspaper campaign down his throst a few weekt ago and I shouldn't have done It. He didnt like the series and he'« been laying for ITS ever since." Ede smiled. "How do things stand now?" she asked. "Not so good. Chuck and Pat— they're both dead on their feet, by the way—are getting up two more cempaigns. One we believe in and the other's an alternate,.to b.ive up our sleeve. We're going to see Lydnd again Friday." He sighed wearily. ."And I suppose it'll b* the lame old story." "You honestly tetl that we've made every effort, don't you, Dan? We've done the best we could to give Lyons what he ought to have?" Reagan nodded. "Even beyond that. When he wouldn't Uke what he might to have, we scrapped our sacred principles and tried to give him what w« thought h« wanted. That didn't work either. He doesn't »eem to know what he wants." "That," taid Ide, "is (11 1 to know." (T. Re llcliciiui.s IICIICKIII.s Iff Cream Try Velvet's TASTE TREAT OF THE MONTH "Coconut-Pineopp/e" BARNEY'S DRUG STORE West Main "1 Sell That Stuff" FUEL OIL!
