XVII TN the week just passed Muriel Hallcck had made her novel grow. But now, as if Brent's departure were a sudden spur, it seemed to leap forward. Alice Pine was amaicd at the piles of foolscap, closely - written, that came to her desk. "This is incredible," she said, one afternoon. "Belter slow down, You'll have a crack-up, Muriel." "Do I look in danger of it?" MnrieJ smiled. i "Honestly, no. You look re- [inarkably healthy. Bui I don't see jhow you do it." "Well," the smile faded, "yoi 'don't crack up when you're doing 'precisely what you want to do, to 'the exclusion of everything else ;And I mean just that — everything. 1 * : Somehow the little speech made .Alice unco tnf or (able. She wondered suddenly whether a laugh ringing carelessly over a stretch o beach, had been as careless as i had sounded. Despite his proposed program Brent did not come home the fol lowing week-end. A telegram on .Friday pleaded pressure of work rMuricl took the news in her stride "M'm!" She crumpled the yel 'ow iressnge. "\S f ell, the lad want d to work. He seems to have got is wish." ''Knowing advertising/' Alice aid, "I'm not surprised. They ever hire anyone till they're in a pot. Then the new man gets it rom all sides." Muriel tossed her bright head. Ohl Too bad for Brent." When she got away, Alice took moment in which to examine herself. She did not like what she ouml. Her keen disappointment at not ;eeing Brent Halleck was both iilly and weak. On Saturday afternoon Murie' vorked straight through unlil 5 o'clock. But she came into the ibrnry shortly afterwords. "At right," she said. "The whistle's )lown. We're having Martinis on he terrace. I could use about four right now." "I told you—" Alice begari. "That I'd smash myself up? Well, I told you that was nonsense. Come on!" T hey h ad had o ne d ri nk ant Muriel was pouring another when she said suddenly: "Uh-uhl Here comes a disturbance," • * * '"PHE "disturbance" was, indeed in the offing. Young Rick leaving the fat Stella hopelessly behind, cavorted toward then across the lawn. As he gamboled up, Alice de cided that Rick was a scavenge by nature. Ele rarely went any where without returning richl laden with whatever caught hi eye. Today it was sea shells, an ap preciation of which Alice hersel had imparted. Both of Rick hands overflowed with them. H ceased cavorting at the terrac and, with a certain childish dig nity, walked straight toward AHc< At once she put out a long lei arm. "No, darling! Show thei lo Muriel first." Alice was looking at Rick. Bu from one eye-corner she sa Muriel glance up. A little frow chcd Muriel's forehead. Rick \vas obedient. He crossed Muriel. "Show Mural," he said, s if he were {jelling his orders rai^ht. Muriel examined the lort. "Why, it?y're lovely, dear. Whci.'ver did on find so many? Now show icm to Alice. Then it's supper nd bed for yours, you 1 " 1 man." The bovine Stelln has 11 (Tod up. Come on, Kicky," she commanded Ineidly. "No," said Rick, disinterestedly athcr than rudely. He began to rrange his shells in HUle heaps n the grass. Muriel reached (or her rirink. That wasn't polite, Rick. Please ;o with Stella." * • * f^ICK looked at her in undecided fashion. But, obviously,' he ' clt committed now to a course of iction. "No," he repeated. And, with n [esture like an unfortunate aftcr- hought, he stamped his foot. 'Alice," Mi.ftd turned to her, 'what do you do in a case like his?" "1—I don't know," Alice fell strangely apprehensive. Hick stood stubborn and determined. He was something like Drent—or like Brent might have n when he was four years old. The child's lip moved a little and lis eyes filled with tears. "Neither do I.. But I'm afrg,id t's my responsibility. RlcTn" Muriel's silvery eyes narrowed. "Stop this nonsense and go with Stella. At once—do you hear?" She spoke patiently, but the patience was wasted on Rick. Motivated v by heaven knew what—it could have been, Alice thought, the limelight and an audience—the child went into a sudden tantrum. Without warning, he plumped. himself down on his stomach, small hare legs thrashing the air. "I won't," he yelled, defiantly. "Stella," Muriel controlled herself, "does this happen often?" "No'm," said Stella, with oceanic calm. "Just sometimes. When he's tired, maybe." "Well, he T s overtired now. Take him inside." (To Be Continued) "Don't you think you ought to go to bed a little bit earlier, George? You know what that insurance man saiet about so many women outliving their husbands these days!"
