He was rather adroit at it "It's lucky I got my first gander al^you wearin' a bathin 1 suit," he said critically. "I might never have fell tor you like I have." Margie Lou was still too dazed (o take ollense at the easy familiarity of the man's manner. When she tried to stand up she was wobbly. "I'll carry you, Baby," Max said and picked her up. "I've got a car over on the road to take you home in." •. Eddie and Duke followed them and, after a moment, the rest of the squad [ell in as an escort. Duke, guided by Eddie, climbed right into the car and sal down on the seal between Margie Lou and the driver. Max didn't like that and was all for kicking Duke out. But when he saw that Margie wanted the pup to go along he subsided wilh fair grace. The other uninvited passengers —all 12 of them—rode the fenders, the hood, the bumpers and the folded-back lop. It was not much more crowded than a jeep on maneuvers. Max piloted hii convertible coupe with its crowd of passengers to the place where Margie Lou lived. It was a shabby, grimy frame house, once painted yellow but now faded and soot-covered to mere dinginess.' When the car stopped Jake Snyder said, "Say, Eddie, my folks live right around the corner. How's about me stopping by to see 'cm white we're so near?" Eddie considered. "Sure," he decided finally. "All you guys had better scatter and visit your families while you got a chance. We got no idea how long before we'll be ordered out of this town." "Gee," said Jake, "do you suppose we'll still get pushed around just like we was still in the Army?" "You ARE still in the Army," Eddie admonished him, "until we hear different. I'm dismissing you until 10 tonight." "Taps?" Jake inquired. "I don'l know about taps. Maybe we don't need any sleep. But we'll assemble at Alf's Place. I'll tell you what the orders are then. Beat it!" All obeyed but Carl and Joe. "I've already b«en home," Carl reminded his friend and superior. "Sorry, Carlo," Eddie said. "You stick with me, then, but how about you, Joe?" Joe shrugged his shoulders. "Where would I go? I don't live in this town, you may remember. I've seen all I want to see of it already. I'll just hang around and help you with your love affair. It looks to me. like you're going to need help." • • • VJARGlp; LOU was explaining k> A Max that she lived in the upstairs part of the house which had been converted into a separate flat. She started toward a flight of rickety stairs leading to the second floor from outside. "I can get along all right now," Margie Lou said when Max followed her. "Wouldn't think of leaving you now, Baby," Max declared masterfully. "By righU I really ought to carry you up." "No, no," Margie Lou protested. "It would shock Atuit Ellen if she saw you bringing me home like that. Aunt Ellen has a bad heart. You mustn't even mention that anything has happened to me. Ft would give her a bad spell I'm okuy now anyway." Carl, Joe, Eddie and Duke were close behind. Margie Lou dealt with the dog. "You can't come in, Duke," she home, that's a good doggie. Aunt Ellen doesn't like dogs." "Gcc," said Max, "ain't that your hound?" "No," Margie Ix>u admitted regretfully, "but 1 wish he was." She knocked on the door. "Everybody has to knock so is not to slnrtle Aunt Ellen." There was a stir on the oilier side of the door, a considerable interval of coughing and then a doleful leminine voice. "Come in."
