He bought daffodils and vinintc.. Dal/ocliis for Eileen ;u\d t-'i'een had told him other day that she liked because, .since she became 17 six weeks ago. they seemed somehow more grown-up. Maggie preferred violets because they sinelieci nice. My^ Pal George, who is 16 and a largest air dent of the Youth Club and Chairman of the Dance Committee, says chat for nearly a month the three of them had been planning that dance in side the snelter. Finally the East End Firewatcher.s. George says they mentioned at the lime that dance frocks were a nuisance. But they went rhjht out ( into the fire blitz anyway, each carrying a small twenty* pound bag of sand because sand puts out incendiary bombs Quicker than a stirrup pump or shovel. My Pal George says he lost track of the girls after a few minutes because those fire bombs were coming clown hot and heavy and everyone was working fast. Sometimes uiey would land in the middle of the .street and to them V.TIS no tri-jk. Other times, thouuh a lew would strike a warehouse and crash dcwn inside the building. That's when you would rush inside in a fast-moving effort to locate the incendiary before it set inflammable material afire. That's probably what happened to Eileen and ' Maggie, George .says. They rushed into a warehouse anci were trying to locate the incendiary when a high explosive struck the building. Nobody knew they were ed paper streamers had been strun* around the alcove, and by knotcm" seme stiff blue and red paper around three hurricane lamps they had managed to have suspended from the ceiling what looked like Japanese lanterns. A four- piece orchestra of violin, accordion, banjo and saxophone sat in one When My Pal George, Eileen and Maggie arrived, there was a pleas ant hum to the shelter. People were milling around, animated "by the event and greeting each other just as if they hadn't lived in that shelter every night for the past six months. Eileen and Maggie were very pretty in new frocks they had made themselves out of material purchased over a. period of days at several East End rummage sales. r * w First the orchestra played a Paul Jones, and everyone goi. to mixing it. Then it switched 10 a waltz anc' finally swung into Riding High. It was halfway through Riding High that, the wail of the air raid alarm sounded. But like every other night during recent weeks nobody paid any particular attention to the warning. Tiicy just continued s'.vinging around" the small iloor, having one swell time. First George would dance with Eileen nnd then he'd dance with Maugic. Then .Samuel Goldman, the shelter marshal, walked f;;st p -- uSt t i 10 dancers, looking worried. He told > My Pal Gcor-e Mint the inccnck- I ancs were coining down -So ! George started to leave. But Eileen j and Maggie were right there, loo \ —Because they were members of | when the raid finally ended and Eileen and Maggie failed to show up back at the dance, no one knew where to look. But George got, up a search party and they looked the rest of that night for some sign of the girls. They didn't find them that mght. of course. Not that night nor the next. But three days later, when some aid raid wardens were diggin^ through a 20-foot mound of broken concrete and twisted steel, they found Eileen and Maggie clasped ;n each other's amis. * * * That's why My pal Geonre says that-, when he bought spring flowers for Eileen anci Maggie this last time, it- 'was the hardest thing he ever had to do. Daffodils for Eileen, violets for Maggie. V THEATRE > ' - : j. .:) rr ::.J~»^ LUXORA Phone 42 Mat. Sat.-San. 2 and 4 I*. IV! Every Night 7 r. M.
