I was afraid my nervousnesi would show if 1 stayed the living room, and would af- ! th« Governor. Melvin Fisher wed me in, and said as 1 bent to the dial, "What I want to know Is what to do with those 250 straw bats." • j -Straw hstiT" I saM. TAnd sunbonnets,". he said. Tor the kids. We got all those straw hats and sunbonnets for the kids to wear in the parade." I shrugged my shoulders. The program had already begun in Birmingham and • United States senator was introducing the Governor. I sat down to listen to the Governor's speech. Through the open door 1 could see across the hall intp the living room, where the Governor sat al a table with the manuscript in front o( him. He looked sad and tired. I knew it was an expression that characteristically came on his face when he was waiting to speak and had drained his mirxi of thought until the signal came but to the group of newspapermen, who were not familiar with his traits, he must have seemed worried man. ,When he started speaking the Governor's lone was low, and I saw the radio engineer fiddling with his dials, but as he warmet up, his voice gained power, waited for the time when he would iave to lay the manuscript aside and speak from notes. There ha< been so much on the Governor's mind the past 48 hours that I .was alrald he would have troubl speaking extemporaneously, but should have known the Governor better. He went on speaking from the notes without a pause. He had ton minutes yet to go 'when 1 heard a knock on the iron door. It sounded loud in the hushed house, and the radiomen turned their beadi aad frowned. hurried to the door and opened rt. Ginny Perkins stood at the sill, and Clyde McDonald's bulk loomed behind" her. • • • . MOTIONED them into the .music room, and indicated chairs, but before he sat down Clyde said, 'Roy, it's too bad about Ruth Warburton. I met the lady at the convention and she's okay." I met hii unall eyes; there seemed to be no cynical gleam. 'Why, thanks, Clyde," 1 laid. *te lighted a cigaret and dropped ito a chair, and I looked down at ondering how much Ginny Parkins had to do with it, and much of it I could believe. icy Strawn tiptoed downstairs befrtre the Governor had Snished, and I appeared smiling at the door of the music room. She had been a bilsy girl in the hour since I had aeetti her in the hall, and her en- trann« was effective. Clyd« McDonald rolled his head around to look at her, and Ginny's shoulders bccamje noticeably more erect. Th*, radio drummed with applause) from the faraway Birmingham meeting, and I got up and lumecJ it ,off. I imagined that in Birmingham, Bill. Evers breathed a sigh of relief, as I did. In the room' across the hall the reporters were trowding in around the Governor, and 1 hastened over to run interference. But - th« Governor chose to remain and answer a few questions. His wife was doing well, he said, as well as could be expected. They were awaiting the crisis and he would remain at her bedside until it had passed. The reporters moved on to the door, which John Mills held open, but Melvin Fisher lingered, and approached the Governor diffidently. . His, rasping voice was pitched low, and sounded unnatural. "Willie, I'm right concerned about Ruth," he said. "If there's anything I can do, I wish you'd call on me." "Thank you, M«l," the Governor uid. "1 wilL tedecd 1 viU.- Melvin Fisher smiled, gave the Governor's hand a disengaging shake, and turned awoy. John Mills let him out the door then pushed it shut hard. ' : From the stair we* a rotee called, "John, hay* the reporters gone?" ! i "Yes, all gone, Agnes." The Governor heaved a mighty sigh and said, "Well, that's over." He grinned at me, and my answering grin fro*e on my face as a clear, singing came drilling down from the floor above. "Will," it said, "come on up here. You haven't even said hello." I lifted my eyes and saw Ruth Worburton there at the head of the stairs, standing in her pink negligee with one hand on the railing. * • • CHE was not aware, as 1 was in every Jumping nerve, that Clyde McDonald was there in the house, sitting in the music room Just across the hall. She thought that all the reporters were gone, and she did not see Clyde until Clyde's red head appeared under the hall chandelier and his sharp eyes turned staring toward the stairs. Ginny Perkins cried, "Why, it's Mrs. Warburtonl" Lucy Strawn had the presence of mind to whirl on the stain and call, "Somebody telephone the doctor. She must b« delirious Roy call the doctor quick!" "I'll do it," John Mills said. Clyde McDonald stood with his feet wide apart. "What's going on here?' he said and slowly turned to face the Governor. There was a wise, malicious smile on his lips. "So she's got pneumonia, has she?" Governor Warburton acted with the characteristic hard-hitting Warburton directness. He hit hard and with excellent direction and Clyde never saw the fist coming. Neither did 1, unlil 1 heard a solid blow and saw Clyde's heavy body topple backward in the hall. I looted down al his slack (ice and said, "Governor, 1 guess thai does it." "It was worth lt, s Roy," said Governor Warhurton grimly, but with a note of uneasiness. _. <*• " Diabetes Is more common among people who have been overwight than among those who are tinder- weight.
