"Sasay—listen io [his," she began. The dark, curly-haired youth sprawled on a glider looked up. "Good news, bad news, or jusl hews'.'" "You guess." And then: "ARRIVING ON 2:15 STOP PLEASE HAVE SOMEONE MEET ME AT STATION STOP FOR YOUR INFORMATION WILL BE WEARING DUBONNET TA1LOHEE SUIT STOP JOAN JOHNSON TRANSFER, OMICKOJSI CHAPTER."

G feet and 185 pounds of tie luxe halfback, uncoiled himself from the glider. "Never mind the small talk ladies. Who's this Joan Johnson person? Inldresled, y'know. New worlds to conquer, and slulf." Carol studied the wire again - "You can't prove it by me," she - said. "Miss Joan Johnson is strictly a stranger. Funny, though—we haven t had any previous communication from her. She's certainly getting under the wire— I—with tomorrow last day fees informed h'ev with" a grin. "Of course, that phony job you have down at the bureau of motor vehicles doesn't hurt any, does it?" He registered outraged dignity "Whadaya mean—phony? I'll have you knavi —" They swung down College Drive and passed the ivy-covered home economics building. "Pull over, Keith." They were approaching Jennings 1 bookstore "There's Dyn Webber Beer can be paid without fine." "Maybe she's sent 'em in by mail," Elaine Chesbro miised. And then getting back to the. subject. "But what do we do about her?" Carol looked surprised. "Why, meet her, of course. Isn't much else we can do, is there? C'mon, Keith. You've got jusl enough lime before practice to run mo down to the slalion. Kay won't mind." * * « 4i l T Sefe me the 'way football players can afford to be like tin's," Carol observed, climbing into his convertible sedan. "Only the good ones can," lie' . .

"Hey, Web c'mefc!" "Look up and down both ways " Carol added, as Webber wailed for a stream of cars lo pass. "Don't worry," 'said Keith. "He will—that's just the sort o£ guy he is—dead serious about everything." •j "Including the way he bloeks lor you," Carol said under her breath. "Hi Carol! Hi Keith! Where bound?" He stumbled into the back and. stretched his legs He didn't have Rhodes' height nor the handsome features. Yet he was good-looking enough. His shoulders were broad and hinted of power—the could blast tackle right into the stands. kind of. power thai an opposing end or T)AN WEBBER could hardly remember Ihe last time he had carried the ball for Tech. Ifis was tlic blocking post nnd when Keith Rhodes started off on one of his celebrated oiT-lackle slants or wide end sweeps it was Dan Webber who usually led the way. The wind whipped tousled hair into his serious brown eyes. "Well where we bound for?" he repealed' Before Carol had finished ex-' plaining (hey were at the slation. Carol gripped their arms siniut- .aneously a minute later as passengers came up the ramp. "Over there," she nodded, "and do you see what I see?" They followed her gaze. Keith - ••-. ttai.\., I\UHH et go with .i whistle. "Don't look ..V Je , UULL !, ilJUJl but it's an optical illusion.' 'ccpers," said Dan softly, "call out the guard.

Slender, dark, her ease and grace of movement wna t direct contrast wild the excited milling groups criss-crossing through the crowded station They walked up'to her. Carol said: "I believe you're looking for me—or rather I'm looking for you. I'm Carol Rf>id, president of Alpha Nu—ami of course you're Joan Johnson." Joan Johnson smiled and extended her hand. "Right, and thanks for meeting me. . . ." And then as her eyes swept deliberately over Keith and Dan: "Quite a reception committee," "Just a couple of porch lizards who infest the terrace, back at the house," Carol offered banteringly. "One of them, especially. j oa n this is Keith Rhodes, ami ..." Before she could get any fur-' Iher with the introductions,-,Keilh. had taken Joan's hand. "I've heard of you, haven't I?" she murmured. "The great Keith Rhodes-. . . you play football or something, don't yon?" He grinned, holding her hand a couple of seconds longer than usual. "That's right," he admitted breezily. WHENl _.. v hand, Carol continued. "And 'HEN Keith had released Joan's "And noihet this is Dan Webber varsity man." 'I'm doubly honored." She looked into Dan's rugged face, saw none ot the eager challenge thai had been so visible in Keith. "And what position do you play?" she inquired, almost too politely. "Right half." He was very brief. "Keith ploys left." "Your bags," Carol cut in. "Lcl's get 'em and dump 'em right in Keith's car." "Sure," Keith said. "Let me have the claim checks." "Thanks," J U ;m replied, "but I've already arranged to have them sent out lo the house. I don't think it would be very convenient to pile them in a car, anyway." Keilh opened Ihe front door for her, and got in behind the wheel.
