"What an odd way to put it, Royl What do you mean by that?" "I mean you shouldn't b* shut wp in a little town like this," I -» ! d. "You ought to get out and : something of the world, and the world ought to see something of you." "All right," said Ginny. "But how?" "I thought you might like a good Job In Washington." 1 said, watching her expression. "Oh,? she said, and her face told me nothing. "A Job." -In Washington," I said. "X responsible job with the Vice President of the United Slates If the Governor u elected 1 can get it (or you, Ginny. I've already asked him about it." "Yes," she said in a practical tone, "but, do you think he'll be elected?" •' "Don't you?" "1 don't follow polllics much Roy." She moved her shoulders slightly. "But Clyde says he hasn't much chance." "Clyde can be wrong," I said "What kind of job, Roy?" .' "Secretary to the Governor." "But I don't know shorthand." "Can you type?" "Yes. I learned in high, school. Bui I'm pretty rusty." She gave me a quick glance. "Isn't Miss Slrawn the Governor's secretary?" "He has several secretaries." I said. "A press secretary, a personal secretary. I'm sort of a sec- Uary myself.." Y We'd be working In the same office, then?" She smiled at me. "We can do the town, you and I," 1 said, and took her hand. "I have to think it over, Roy," she said. "After all, how much would the Governor pay me?" I said the first figure that came inlo my head. "Ninety dollars a week." Her eyebrows went up. "That's pretty good (or a secretary who can only type, isn'l it?" _"Ii'* confidential work, f explained. "In Washington a man has to be careful, 'and his employes must be discreet. But I Ipld the Governor you knew when :b keep quiet." "So I'd be paid *o much for typing," said Ginny, "and so much for being quiet Is that it?" 'In • way, yes," I said. "What's your answer." "It would be fln«, Roy. Provided tie's elected." "Ginny, there's on« thing more." "Yes?" "Naturally I can get you the Job only if the Governor is elected, and only if nothing ii done to hinder his election. You see what I mean?" "Oh, yes, I see what you mean. 1 told you I'd think it over." Ginny, I want more than that. Just tell me now that you'll keep your mouth shut, and everything is set." ' Smiling, she reached out and patted my hand. "Roy," she murmured, "you worry so much." CHE slipped out of the car and ^ started away. I picked up one of the pints and shoved it under my coal before I followed, but I caught her before she reached the circle of light at the entrance. •I think you try to worry me," I told her. "You seem to get a kick out o( iL" She giggled and said, "Of course I do." This lime when 1 tried lo kiss her she did not resist. Hand in hand we returned to the casino, and I thought -with content that everything was all right again. The Governor was safe and there was nothing Clyde could do now. lAicy Strawn and Clyde were dancing. Clyde sat down opposite Ginny and pushed his face across the table toward her. "See," he said "I have got a mouse." "Sweetie, it's such a little one,' Ginny said soothingly. "Warburton's going to pay (or this. Roy," Clyde said. 1 asked Uicjr to ianc*. [ t ier everything was settled, that I vas sure Ginny would lake the ob, that I could guarantee Ginny vould keep silent. The kiss. I felt, lad been a promise. Lucy said, "Clyde is up to some- hing, Roy. I don't know what it s, but he borrowed'all my change, md made a long-distance call le was in the booth a long time, ind when he came out he looked 'ery satisfied." "Clyde doesnt worry me any' more," I said. Lucy gave me a speculative [lance that traveled over my (ace ike a beam of light WfHEN the musicians took • " break Lucy and Ginny met ^ach other's eyes, reached (or their handbags, and with the remarkable telepathy of women in a pubic place got to their (eet without a word and started (or the powder room. Clyde slouched back in his seat and his big hand went around his glass. "That little country dumpling li quite a dish." he said. "Yes, I noticed it" "But she's hard to figure out," he said. "Some girls are born with know-how, and she's one of them. I'm wondering what you did lo button her up." I shrugged and said, "I dont follow you, Clyde." "Let's not talk in circles, Roy." "I don't understand you." He grinned. "You wouldn't even admit Nov. 4 was Election Day, would you? But you krrow what I'm talking about, and you know why I'm in Hydclown, and I know why you're in Hydetown." His eyes gave me a sharp scrutiny "It's why Governor Warburtqn u here a day ahead of schedule." "Pneumonia wasn't on the schedule." 'Oh. don't give me thai!" 'And to tell you the truth," 1 added, "I don't know what you're getting at I've wondered all along why you attached youriell to the Governor's campaign, i understand Mclvin Fisher sent for you." "In a' manner of speaking," he said, and picked up his glass. "You know who sent for me, Roy. It was our lilUc village bc!l«."
