All the men looked in the direction of Duke's gaze. A bus had slopped on the highway and from il emerged a solitary passenger — a young woman. Several of the boys whistled."I ain't seen a girl in six months. Don't crowd! Jake, for cripes sake, get out from in front o( me so I can look." The young woman was heading directly for the group. As she came nearer it became obvious that she was not the radiant beauty type. She was nice but not showy. Straight, rather indefinitely blond hair, worn In coiled braids on her hatless head, gray- blue eyes that had a lot of sympathy in them but no "come hither" whatever, a sweet mouth that pretended to be hard but looked I as i( it might quiver if you spoke harshly. "Do you suppose she's a live girl?" asked Jake. "Sh!" warned Eddie. "She might hear, you." Joe College gave her a critical onceisover. -f She -looks- as if- she was alive." "So do you," argued Jake, "but you ain't. I wonder hovr w* tell which is which." "I should think pinching would be a good lest. But, after all, what diflerence does it make?" "Don't'be silly. I've just got to hold a girl's hand or something." "Evidently," observed Joe dryly, "you aren't an angel yet." "And I don't want to be an angel, neither." "I doubt, however, if a wishful sinner with nothing but an astral body can break any of the interesting commandments." * • • 'PHE girl walked right up to the group. And into the middle of it! "She don't see us," wailed Jake, "and don'l hear us neither. Darn it, she's alive." "Good dog," said the girl patting Duke on his head. Duke liked it. She sat down beside him. "At least we can hear her." Jake look what consolation he could from that. "Nice voice, too. Gee, she's swell." "I think," said Eddie, "she's about the nicest girl I ever met." "Oh, you do? Only you haven't met her, Sarge. Besides, Eddie, if I remember rightly you're the G.I. who said, 'A woman is only a woman but a cigaret is a smoke ' Or was that Kipling?" "We ain't got nobody by the name of Kipling in this outfit. But I didn't say il neither. But I know a nice girl when I see her." "You've been around, huh? Around what? You didn't meet many dames in the places we've been the past year. Did you get those stripes on your arm (or dancing in night clubs?" "Button it up, Windy. H I say she's wonderful that's what she is." "Fellas," said Joe. "Gather ye round. I think old Sergeant Tough Guy has toppled for this undersized radish. H'j typical jug- head stuff, to wait until after you're dead before you fall in love with R girl and never be able to tel! her about it." • • • "WHOSE doggie are you?" th« girl asked Duke, the way one does of an animal, not expecting an answer. "He's mine," declared Eddie, taking what cold comfort be could in reflected elory. •No dice, sergeant. She didnl quite catch what you said." Joe College contemplated Ihe newcomer m (heir midst with spccu- iitive attention. "You know. Ed- I lie. on second thought I'm not jure you haven't got something in this situation. It's really a wonderful opportunity to make a proposal to a girl, without danger of uncomforlnble consequences like a breach of promise suit. Go to it sergeant. I'd like to listen to you." The girl looked out at Ihe calm lake. "1 wonder if the water is warm enough for a swim. I'U bet you'd go with me, doggie." Duke wagged his tail lo signify that he would be glad to go along. "There's one way to find out." she said, and forthwith kicked off her shoes. "Small feet," observed Joe with critical Interest. "Ankles okayl Knees okay! Oops!" The girl was unfastening her garters from the tops of her stockings. 'Wham!" Jake exclaimed. "Maybe it ain't so bad being like we are after all." Eddie decided to do jomelhini about it. "Fall in, you guys." The habit of obedience persisted. The men lined up but still looking at the center of attraction who now had dress half off over her head. 'About f.cer Eddt. commanded. "A dirty trick," Joe muttered "Thai leaves you the only one who can get an eyeful." Eddie, embarrassed, hastily turned his own back. "If one of you cockeyed swivel-necks take* a peek I'll report you." "To whom?" Joe asked. "To the top kick," Eddie stopped suddenly. Who would he report to? About this or anything else? The girl calmly walked right through their line, at the place where Joke Snyder would have been standing if he were really there, and hurried down to th« water's edge. She was in a very modest balh- ing suit of faded blue jersey. The men laughed. "She had it on underneath all the tme," Jake said. (T. B* Concrete Culvert Tile Slit; op lo 36 In.
