Suppose they're not your type and you don't want to write !o them, you don't want to h»v« nothing to do with C ml Why does ev'ery- • body get so indignant?" Eddie kept gazint across "lay- land toward Harmony House, the married folki' cottage Just beyond .the tennis court, at :h« rfrn of the woods. When Roslyn appeared on the steps, he got into t(j< station • wagon. She was wearing a blue flowered dirndl and an orange blouse. Her hair was captured in- »ide a bright blue babushka. Edd(e smashed the gears into place, and we bounced across the cinders toward the highway. "Morrison," Eddie said, "you how MM* a yw* M'l Blossom Time in the Poconos? Okay—once a year it's Davey time. Official delegate from the whole family in! Kansas city, Mo. How's our little Eddie making out? He never writes. Maybe he's in trouble. Dave, go visit Eddie and see how everything is. Same time, you can get your vacation at a discount" 'J 1 HE bus station in the village was an informal adair—just the front porch of the drugstore. When we got there, the bus had already gone, and a man was standing cm the porch beside a square-cornered canvas suitcase. An anxious smile flurried his" face. He grabbed up the suitcase and came trotting toward us. He was wearing an Oxford gray suit and a straight-brim hat. It was really spectacular, the perfect horizontally of that hat. The man was about five foot six, vhich put him towering three inches above Eddie; but he had the same thin lips, the same washboard forehead. Eddie got out of the station wagon and gave him a greeting that sounded all right, and Roslyn threw in a smile that belonged on a deathbed. Then Eddie introduced us. "Dave's in a department store," Eddie explained. "Credit and collections," Dave added daintily. I went down to th« little sporting good« shop and picked up my tennis rackets, and then we drove back toward High Hill. I took the back scat, letting Dave jit with hit relatives. Th« conversation ran out very fast We rode along in an itchy silence for awhile. Dave sat forward in his scat, hanging on the edge of speech. Finally he spoke to Eddie in a bltler tone, "You didn't even ask how Mom is." "How'i Mom?!' Eddie said. •She'j fine." Then Dav* added. •You don't cart a bit how she is." There was some more silence. D»v» blurted: «v<m miM once in six months, not even that —and you never send a thing, not a single dollar. We have to keop up Mom's apartment and pay tho. insurance and everything els- by ourselves. You .wonder why we're angry?" Roslyn turned big, poisonom eyes on her brother - in - Jaw. "You've got a nerve—" "Hold it, Ros. hold it!" Eddie pleaded. "Look, we, I get letters saying you don't want nothing from me, just a letter once in a while." "That's right. Just so Mom won't worry." "But now you're complaining 1 don't send money." "You're a son, aren't you? Doesn't it ever occur to you that you liave an obligation—?" 'Slop it!" Eddie howled, his head swinging groggily from side lo side. "Let's everybody calm down; will you, please?" • Al Kcmmcr was standing on the steps of the maintenance building when we pulled up. As we got out of the car. Dave whispered, "You arranged about special rates?" "I was getting nervous," Eddie said. "I was beginning to think you weren't going to ask me that• • * j^ATER in the afternoon 1 wa» on the stage of the Ritz Ballroom, while Eddie was rigging some wires that would make hi» hat perform all kinds of mysleri- ous movements across the stage. Leo Ritchie, the man Sally Ann had believed to be a wolf, was dancing with some of the girls. He was easily the tallest man at High Hill. He was slim-legged, slim-waisted, but broad at lh« shoulders and he gave the impression of strength. He was dark, had white teeth, a thin mustache and he wore sunglasses indoors and out Midge came in and called to Eddie, who came reluctantly down the ladder. She rushed him off into * corner. "Eddie! This U th« one—remember that time?" She pushed a newspaper containing a picture of the dead ma* out at him. OUT OUR WAY AM* Htt Ml INK f AWP.-TH'RjW HE HA* WITH THAT-THINK,/ FtJGeR WIPER..
