AN ORDINANCE prohibiting the parking of motor and other vehicles on the south side of West Foster street between Russell and and Frost streets; prescribing a penalty for voilation, and declaring an emergency. BE IT ORDAINED BY THE CITY OF PAMPA: Section 1. Hereafter, it shall be unlawful for any person to park or leave standing, whether attended by any person or not, any motor or other vehicle, on and along the south side and curb of West Foster Street, between Russell Street and Frost Street. Section Z. Whoever shall violate this ordinance or any provision thereof, shall upon conviction be fined not more than one hundred dollars ($100.00). Section 3. The fact that the municipal fire station is located on and fronts the south side of West Foster street between Russell and Frost streets, and that motor and other vehicles are now being parked near the entrance of said fire station, and thus endangering life and property during fires and when the fire trucks are leaving and entering said station, creates an emergency and therefore the rule requiring an ordinance to be read upon three separate dates is hereby suspended and this ordinance shall become effective upon, its passages and publication. W. A. BRATTQN, Mayor. ATTEST: W. M. PRAVEN, Secretary. (April 28 thru J&ay ?.) AFRAID A Jh -t»MAW6H WHITS C Chapter VIII - Joan had planned to leave the office early on Wednesday. In order not to be late for Sybil's tea. But at the last minute, a sudden change in Mr. Hendry's p(ans detained her. She regretted not having timo to run home and change, because she needed the composure that fresh clothes might have lent. Sybil would be perfect and her friends would be perfect, snd thny would be quick tn note any imperfections in her. Their attitude, she felt sure, would Vie patronizing. Socially secure in their own superiority, they were bending down to her. a stenographer, and their eyes and ears would be critical. She remembered what Bob had said about Sybil. "Whatever social success I've had I owe it to her . . ." It had helped him in his business, too. Tliat would be her jnb. from now tm. She must bo able to do as much for him as Sybil Ilr-nclr.v had. BP- muse of that, so tmirh depended i upon today. Upon li"r meeting' with those wom(-n who would be her neighbors. Some of them slip hud met at the Spring Frolic. Because 1 of their friendship for Bob, they had accepted her wholeheartedly. But today she would be alnne. And she was not sure that Sybil's friends would be the same warm-hearted matrons whom Bob had presented. Today she would meet the. smart young women, the well-poised, brilliant young sophisticates. She was afraid of people like that. She lacked the self-confidence to meet them successfully. Parties still held a certain terror for her. because .she was never sure when she might I meet another woman from San Francisco—someone who remembered. A girl does not gather social assurance during a lifetime of hiding from society. Today she must not bo afraid. She took one last personal inventory. Tile evening before she had had a shampoo and manicure. Her shoes were new, so were her stockings. She was glad it had continued cold; she- would not need galoshes. Her dress, which she had hoped to change, would do. It was a plain black Mlk. ideal for the office, but glorified for the occasion by a crisp new collar and a pair of good slips. Her hat was new and smart. Her plain black coat she had worn all through the winter, but it was made of good material even though it lacked an abundance of fur, and today it had been brushed within an inch of its life. As far as grooming went, she felt confident. There was no carelessness to warrant criticism. Her train arrived in Green Hills at 5.30. Sybil had suggested 5 o'clock, so she was not very late. She started to walk from the station, then suddenly catering to Sybil's sophistication, she decided on a taxi. Her decision proved a wise one, because Sybil herself was welcoming guets at the door when she drew up. "Joan, my dear!" she greeted effusively. "It's so nice to see you. Do run upstairs, will you? My maid will take your wraps. I shall be waiting here for you . . . Jennings is mixing cocktails, and I must watch the door . . . Oh, Marjorie! Gloria! I'm so blad you both could come. . ." Joan's feet sank into the deep pile of the carpeting as she walked up the stairs. At the landing, a pert little maid met her and ushered her into a boudoir at the left—a veritable stage setting of rose and silver. This must be Sybil's room, she thought, and she caught her breath at the sheer luxury of it. In her simple black office dress, she felt a fitting companion to the maiil, and her hands trembled ns she reached into •her bag for a handkerchief. Two other youny women were freshening their make-up at ;i vanity table, and they graciously made a place for her, and included her in their irrelevant c-hattcr about the weather. Eventually .she went downstairs with them. Sybil met them. She took Joan's arm and drew her forward. "This i.s Bob's fiancee, Joan Barrett," she introduced. "Joan, Int me present Bess Havens and Lois Stevens . . . though you've probably introduced yourselves upstairs . . , . Come, Joaii, my dear, the others are all so eager to know you. too." She speaks, Joan thought, like a person in a play, so charmingly precise, as if she had rehearsed every word carefully . . . but her eyes remain cold and remote, as if she weren't there at all. Sybil led her into the blue and ivory living room, and Joan felt a dozen pairs of eyes focused upon her, and 10 times a dozen pairs reflected from as many mirrors. Mechanically she acknowledged Sybil's introductions, praying that she would not be forced to shake hands and betray, by the icy moisture of her own, the inner discomfort which she felt. These women were to be her friends and neighbors, yet of all the eyes and reflection of eyes which burned into her, there was no pair which sparkled warmth and friendship. They were all Sybil's eyes, a dozen times over, cold and remote and unfriendly, though the lips that matched them smiled and murmured charming phrases. The friendly* fleshy matrons whom Bob had frre-* sented were not to be found in this group. Here were the critics, waiting to tear her apart. Here were the social dictators, soothing her with subtle smiles ancl velvety speeches as their eyes watched with eager impatience for one slight excuse to cast heif ffom their circle. Sybil led her to the divan, where slip might enjoy the center of the stage. "We're all so very, very fond of Bob." she explained engagingly, "that we feel we must know you thoroughly." Joan knew that the words Sybil was thinking were: "that we want to know if you are good enough for him.." "I hope you won't find us too dull. Jonn," Sybil chatted on. "Compared wilh you. we lead such empty lives." Then, in explanation to the others: Joan, you know, is Uncle John's secretary. He tells me that he couldn't do a thing without herl" If the words were intended for flattery, the intention was lost. Rather. Sybil had called attention to the difference in their positions, and beneath the sugar coating of her words there was a vague sting. The others, quick to seize an opportunity, followed up her words in the subsequent small' talk. Did It not require years of training for such a position? Or had she started to work when fhe was very young? Not really? Seventeen? Think of itl Didn't get to college then? How unfortunate! A good finishing school, however . . . not even finishing school? Oh, dear! Well, it was, just too. too wonderful what a young girl could do for herself these days .... of course, if one was that type. Jennings entered quietly, carrying a tray of cocktails. He walked straight toward Joan, presenting another problem. If she refused, she would be a prude and a bore, a nan-', clicap to a man whose business success depended upon his wife's diplomacy in social contacts. If she drank but one, and let its warm stimulation free her of the overpowering tenseness which she felt, her laugh might become one note too shrill and the critics would whisper: "What can you expect from a common stenographer?" She chose the middle course. Taking one from the proffered tray, she Kipped a lew drops slowly, then quietly placed the glass on the low coffee table in front of her. Her hand, she noticed happily, no longer trembled. Conversation did not lag; neither was it pursued along a common ground of understanding. Joan could not be sure whether Sybil's friends were deliberately talking over her head or whether they were just as deliberately parading before each other. They discussed the merits of the various orchestras in Manhattan's smarter night clubs; they raised astonished eyebrows at one not yet familiar with the Such-and- Such club. They complimented each other on new gowns, ascertaining in nonchalant but determined fashion the source of each gown's origin. They praised Sybil's cocktails, at the same time offering suggestions from their own infallible knowledge of liqueurs. They chatted of mutual friends in Biarritz, Palm Beach and Nassau, presenting varied and elaborate excuses for their own deplorable presence in New York in January. "By the way," someone interrupted, ''has Barbara Downs left for i Florida, yet?" "No," Sybil replied. "I talked to her yesterday. They plan to leave the beginning of next week. Incidentally, I asked her to stop in this afternoon.'' "Is she coming?" "A little later, perhaps. Her cousin i.s visiting her and they had tickets for a matinee this afternoon." "It's almost six now . . . ." Sybil looked at her tiny jeweled watch. "So it is . , ./well, perhaps they're staying m town—" The doorbell sounded as she spoke. ". . , unless this is she now. Yes, of course!" She rose and went toward the door. As she brushed past the low coffee table, Joan picked up her glass, lest it be knocked over by the swish of Sybil's skirt. A moment later, she heard Sybil greet the late arrivals: "Hello, Barbara. And Dorothy. I'm so glad you could get here. We've just been talking about you." A moment later, she brought them in to meet Joan. "May I present Barbara Downs? This is Joan Barrett, Bob's fiancee. And Barbara's cousin, Dorothy Starke, from Seattle." The cocktail glass dropped from Joan's suddenly lifeless hand, shattered into bits on the glass-topped table. She raised horror-stricken eyes to meet the same Dorothy Starfce, from Seattle, whom she had last seen seven years before, at a "sweet sixteen" party. . . .
