These weekly letters from Marlboro had become more and more impbrtaht;in his life; That was because, he told himself,- it was fascinating to see Sonny change, grow up. A lovely, .child. The,experiment had worked'better than he dreamed. ;He tried to be detached and adult 'about 1 . her> but the memory of her / lau'8:hter spoiled his pose^ ; He rjpped open the smart white stationery.. Last August it would •have been pale blue,Jie was sure! It was typewritten because she wanted •to show'liim how she had improved That noon he had luncheon with 'Dick'.and told him about the letter. "It's amazing.,walling to give ''up her Christmas holiday in I^ew 'York.. She is developing real char- acteiv Dick." ' , The attorney nodded. "I almost fainted the, first time I saw her this fall. When we. got_put of the car and she came running '.down;' the stepsi 1 couldn't believe it. And it had; only been three months. That Metzgor.woman has done wonders." • "We were lucky there. She adores Sonny." ' • "She'd-be ideal to take her to Europe next year." Kirk .agreed: "I've thought-; of that. .1 jound ,o'ut a liUJe aboiitvthe woman's financial situatiori : / v?

She knew instinctively- where he was going. Thero had been,another, letter, from Marl* boro.that niornui|$v Kirk, felt gay and festive as he left' the^'garage,- turned his car toward the west side highway, nnd started for George Washington Bridge, Once in the country, Ae stepped on the gas, anxious to arrive at his destination. The drive up was beautiful and Kirk felt like a kid oh a stolen holiday. He drew up in front ofvMrs. Metzger's house be-:; fore three o'clock. When the door opened. to his ring, Sonny herself stood in the hall. "Kirk I" She rushed to him, threw both .arins about his neck nnd he lifted" her off the porch floor in a big hug. ;. "Can't you let a fellow in? I'm freezing!" , . Excited.and laughing, Sonny Jet Him, i«to- the! sitting-room where a "Dear Kirk: This must be ; ju'st a note because I've a class next . h'our but it is important. I hate always^ to be asking you for more money,' but this, is the situation. ' .-.'•-."• : You remember Alice Wel?s, the tall blonde.girl who has been .so nice to me? You met her^. when you were here just before^ Thanksgiving.; Her father ;has failed in -business arid Alice cannot come -back, next term. She; is a 'senior and very brilliant. The dean has, promised her a teaching job if she .uates. I talked to Mrs; today, and we figure it. would As the holidays approached, Kir.k had half a 'mind to tell Sonny to' come to. town and Have her alloW- .ance deductions start > after New Year's. But that, he. told himself, would spoil the whole thing. Besides he would not bo able to-see-much-of her as Janice had his time, pretty well booked. So he gave up thinking about the situation and went -out and bought .Somiy'an utterly extravagant watch, a huge bottle of perfume, arid a new ski suit. • Kirk telephoned Sonny early Christmas morning, 1 arid the sound of her eager voice over the telephone cheered him up the whole,,long difficult day; That first Christmas the Hollister home since Tom gone was a tryi ng one. ; Janice had hoped for her engagement ring f.or .Christmas but Kirk bought her'instead a handsome star sapphire,dinner ring..
