John Mills said "We'll get you there, Willie." He parked the car. af the station and 1 went with him to inquire about trains. The bulletin board showed that nearly every train was marked late. John Mills, returned with i • timetable- "I see there's a tram it eight m the morning to Atlanta, and he can change there to j Birmingham tram Let's see gets to Atlanta at 4 p. m., if it's >p time." He moved his finger back along the column of type. "Yep, that's the best he can do Then he can get a train out of there and let's see—he can make Birmingham at 8:25 Roy, xvhat time Is the speech?" "Eight .'clock," I said Jsmaliy "We can't make It."

John Mills said, 1 think what we all need Is a little sleep. iVaybe I'd better run you all oack> to my house and well wait out the storm." The Governor shook his head "1 think I ought to stick close to the airport, John, and wait for a break." "Adaj'bc so," John said. SWri.rtKNWS~ta.fc suppose we see if we can stay •»• the hotel."

The Governor .swung .round wny, yes. John, don't you think we could make it In one of those without being recognized?" "In this storm. I believe we could," John said. -Let's see what we can do Okay. John starlcd the car again, and back to the street. He knew where to go. On the highway just outside town, in a grove of trees, was a cluster of green and white cabins, linked by a cir cuhjr dirt road. The office was part of > small general store facing on the highway. I got out to the ram and knocked, while John sounded the horn. ' last a light went on upstairs, An old man came to view wearing a tattered bathrobe He peered »t me through the glass then opened the door a little. ' "Got any cabins?" I asked. "How many?" 'e'll need two cabins." "**'*• I. &°l two. That will come to $3 apiece." ' 1 opened my wallet and brought out a $10 bill and a five. He took the bills and said, "Three bucks more. :. That makes "Six b«d3" he »,A n charge by the beds, if you don't want the cabins, say so." I paid Him $3 more, lie gave rne two keys and said, "Nine and I hurried back to the car and old John the numbers- ol the abins.

Governor Warburton produced a big grin, like a man without a care. "Fit for a Cabinet heeling." h said, and looked at the three iron beds, the washbasin with iU rivulets of rust. Lucy said, "Got a match. Roy?" I found » match and offered her a cigarel, but she shook her head and knelt by the gas stove. She struck the match and turned on the gas, and we watched Ihe match burn slowly out. Lucy looked up unhappily at me and said, "No gas! "He stuck ui »ig for these two cabins, I said. "I'm going to se« to U we get some heat." ' ^'.P 0 ' b * "><: garage and splashed through the puddles to Ihe oflict I knocked hard, and at lajt the old man came' groping down the stairs.
