I helped Ruth in, and ran around the other I -side to get in front with John. Immediately he backed the car out. ~ "Lucy heat you by five minutes." John said. "Roy, I called Doc Arnold, and he'll meet us at the house." John's house was a big yellow structure on the.edge of town, a Victorian house with long galleries ;and gingerbread scrollwork and five yellow gables towering in the rnin. There was a gravel drive;way leading to the porte-cochere. .John took it tost, spewing gravel, - and braked under the porte-co- .-chore. Lucy had the door open in- siantly, ,-ind we all scurried into : the house. Wilh the door shut behind us, Agnes Mills said, "Ot course you're Mr. Mason, aren'l you?" -Yes." "Call the operator at Meridian, •Miss. There's a long distance call." The three women went on up 1 the stairs and John showed me the telephone in the downstairs hall. The doctor arrived as I was putting through the call. Bill Evcrs' voice came over the wire. "Hello, hello. Who's this?" "Roy," I said. "Roy, where is the- Governor? What's happened? What's this about the man in cabin nine!" • ; "Bill.".l said, "the Governor Is holed up in a tourist camp for the ; lime being." "In a tourist camp," Bill shouted. "Listen. Bill," I broke in. "Everything is all right. Now get Ihls. Ruth Warburton is here in Hydetown. Wilh a temperature of 104. She's got double pneumonia and we're getting her an oxygen lent" . "What?" Bill shouted. "Everything is all righl, you say!" "Now listen to the rest of it," I said. "The Governor is rushing here to be at her bedside. Got that? You tell the correspondents •a kte kraia, ud I'll call m UM local newsmen. .The Governor will get here sometime this afternoon and I'll arrange for him to broadcast his Birmingham speech from here." , There was a pause, then Bill said. "1 see. Ruth's not really sick. It's a fake." "Don't say that out loud." * • • A FEW .. the staunch ladies who had waited at the station in the storm had assembled in the living ' room when I next went downstairs, and among them was Ginny Perkins. 1 have her a nod and went on to the telephone. I called the radio station in the city ami arranged for the Governor's speech to be broadcast from the Mills home at 8 o'clock, and as 1 talked 1 saw Ginny come slowly out of the living room. When 1 hung up she approached me and asked in a hushed tone, "How is Mrs, Warburlon. Roy?" '^The doctor put her to sleep," 1 said. "It's a shame,", Ginny murmured. "The day before the reception and all that. I suppose you'll have to call the whole thing off, won't you? 1 ' "1 don't know," I said. "We'll sec. The Governor is planning to make his speech tonight, on schedule." "Yes, I hoard."I hope he'll be able to go through with it," I said. "This is a terrible strain for the Governor. "Yes, it must be," Ginny said. "He's a worried man, Ginny. I'd hale to see any more trouble now, when he can't fight back." "Why should there be more trouble?" • I looked into her deep blue eyes They were clear, guileless eyes] and their expression was gentle, almost tender. I reached out and' look her hand. "I mean the sheepskin coat," I said. "What sheepskin coat?" Her eyebrows went up. "Miss Hatlie's story," I said. I took her olher hand and held Oatm bolt final/, "Ciaay, it would Take wonderful indoor pictures »ilh a flash camera from Barney's Druf. Low raits. All kinds of camera supplies arc available here.

"1 roallj don't think you understand Mr. McDonald." "No?" "We had a long talk last night," Ginny said, and giggled. "I suppose all Hydelown knows how late *hc lights were burning at our house." 1 see," I said. "You've already told him, haven't you?" 'Told him what?" 'About Miss Hallie and th« Governor." • • • QINNY lifted her head, and > quick movement of her head sent her honey-colored hair swinging along her shoulders. "Really, all we talked about was Clyde McDonald." she said. "He's an fnlercsting talker, Roy. He's been simply everywhere. You know, it- must be pretty exciting to have the President of the United Stales call you by your firsl nam^." "What the President calls Clyde McDonald is a matter of conjecture." "You're simply biased, Roy," she said. "You ought to give Clyde a chance. Alter all, he's a man with a front scat at history. It's his duty to write about everything he sees and knows, and to get the Veal facts. It's his historical duly." "I hone he hasn't convinced you that you have a historical duly, too," I said. "He hasn't convinced me of anything," Ginny said stiffly. "But I do understand him.. !Ie doesn't have, a happy life. People—im- porlanl people—are always after his scalp. They're trying lo silence him, and they can't. He has courage, Roy. You'll concede him lhat, at leasL" "He has the courage of his own prejudices," I s.iid. "And he's got brass." "That shows how for wrong you are," Ginny said. "He isn't brassy at all. He pretends to be Hard, because he has to, but it's just pretense, Just a pose, ll'c his armor, Roy, and underneath it he's shy and worried and unhappy." <T» B* Television- Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis, Channel 4 TUESDAY NHiHT, OCTOBER Z 6:00 Evening Serenade .6:15 News i 6:30 Dinah Shore 5:45 News Caravan* 7:00 Milton Berle 8:00 Fireside Theatre 8:30 Sou. for Eisenhower 9:00 TAvo for the Money 3:30 Dajigeroiu Assignment 10:00 Mr. & Mrs. North 10:30 News . 10:40 Weather 10:45 Studio One 11:45 Industry on Parade 12:00 News 12:15 Sign Off WEDNESDA.Y OCTOBER 29 7~:00 Today 7:25 News 1:30 Today 7:55 News 8:00 Today 8:25 News 8:30 Today 8:55 News . 9:00 Democratic Comm. 9:15 Film Featufetle 9:30 Campaign Call 1":00 U.N.
