H « shrugged. "Roy, when »U call. I guess we'd better have bin. MU* a story that I'm deathly •1, or something like that. That I'm aboard the train, too ill to anyone." . • ' • "That means no speech," I said "That means no Hydetown reception. But I guest il's the only way out, Governor." "Willie, why dont you come back with me to Hydetown?" John Mills suggested. "Put out a story that you dropped into the old home town as a surprise, a day ahead ot schedule." "And passed up my Birmingham speech for that?" the Cover oor said, and shook his head "That won't hold water, John." . "Can't the local radio station rip* rom speech to Birmingham WHate? You got radio time any- bow, haven't you?" Th« Governor groaned. -Na- Motwl radio time! Eight to 8-30" Then you can make your apecch from Hydetown, Willie." "There has to b« an explanation that will satisfy Clyde McDonald," the Governor said. "That'i as tough as explaining a night out to your wife." I aat up straight. "Governor, where is your wife?" t 'ft looked surprised. "Why, l>y, she slopped off for a rest xi know that" "Yes, but where k she?" "She's due in Hydetown a day ahead of Warburlon Day." I jumped to my feet. "I've got it, Governor, I've got it!" They both looked at me, wittiout much hop«. I iaid, "John, you know a doctor you can trust?" "Sure," John said, "poc Arnold.'* _. aV&fwtatanhM '•'*' *» M* i^fa.. W "Our man for what, Roy?" the Governor asked. "John and I will meet Ruth when she gets off that train," I said. "She was exposed tn the gale. She's got double pneumonia. We rush her to John's house and call Dr. Arnold in. We stick her in an oxygen tent We tip off the reporters that you're rushing across country to her bedside then John drives over here and picks you up and you dash to the hushed house, give the boys a pale, tired smile, and hurry in to stand by your stricken spouse." "It's a wonderful idea," Lucy said. She had joined us 3 minute before. "Then we can arrange for you Jo make that Birmingham speech by radio from John's house," I said. "It will be heart Interest stuff, too. The Governor leaves his wife's bedside to meet his campaign obligations." "It might do," the Governor said "Hoy, I think it will have to do. I can't say I like it. m foci like a charlatan, but t don't see any other avenue. Yi-s that's our program. We'll do it." LOOKED at my watch; H was past 7 o'clock. "Take us a long :ime to get there in this storm* I said. "John, we'd better start" "Okay, Roy," John said. "Willie you stick light here. Don't even put your nose out." "How about that telephone call 'rom Bill?" the Governor asked 'Someone will have to take that call, and I'll be the only man in cabin nine." "I'll send Bill another telegram," I said. "I'll have him call lohn s house in HjKlctown." "Yes, good," the Governor said. "So we're set," I said. "Except or one thing. Except Ruth had belter be on that train!" "Shell be oo it," said John Mills, "There's a women'i com- mtlee to meet her at the depot. My wife* is chairman of it." I groaned. "She'll probably get John frowned. That's a fact. See here, Roy, I could put you aboard that train next stop up the line. If we hurry we can make it. But we've sure got to hurry. 1ft 30 miles beyond Hydetown " We started for the door, but Lucy Strawn cried, "Hey, you can't leave me here. You can't, leave the Governor checked in at an auto court with a girl, even it she is his secretary." She grinned at Governor Warburton. "Particularly if she's his secretary, I •juess." 1 The Governor nodded. "That's Jf-ht- Lucy, you'd belter go along. Ill sit it out here." He put out hu hand. "Roy, that was quick thinking. Good work and zood luck." TN that gale John Mills could not drive faster than 30 miles an hour. I computed the distnnce. Forty miles to Hydetown, another 30 miles to tlie town where I was to board the train. Seventy miles at 30 miles an hour was well over two hours, and it was already nearly 8 o'clock. The train was due at that town at 9:25, according to John's recollection. That left us considerably less than two lours for the trip. "John, we'll never make it a< .his rale," I said. "Can't go any faster, Roy. Cant "Maybe Hoy had better drive * jucy suggested. John pulled to the side of the road and I took the wheel. I was as cautious a man as he, but I was younger and my reflexes were more elastic, so that I pushed the car up to 45 and was probably averaging 40. It was a strain, try- ng to see the road through the rain, and to hold Ihe car on it -jalnsl the mighty wind. As we entered Hydetown, John pulled out his watch and Mid 'Kive to 9, Roy." 'That leaves us 30 rnfmilcs," I iaid. "And 30 miles to go " "We won't make it," John said jlumly. I put on the brakes and made in abrupt, skidding turn Til Iron you off here at the station, John, and you can wait. Lucy and I will go on.". _ Of m.
