"That takes care of Chopin's 8th House Big Cnoug " Copyright 1954 by NEA Swviet. t« Gudren Olson THE STORY: Sfrawjce t*»*lon» ' appt-ar when Tom J>»hl*trom t toringK Lenny, liis bride, kerne to live -with his- mother. I/enny realize* that Mrs. Dahlntrom has dominated Tom and doe* not •wish to relinquish her role n« mlstre«« of the farm where the Dnhlstroms had Jived so many years. * * * IV [WELL, thought Elaine, if Mrs. I **' Dahlstrom insisted upon talk- jing about Elaine's parents, it was ibest they talk about her mother. There wa's one thing about JElaine's mother in which Mrs. iDahlstrom might approve. "My mother," Elaine said slowly, "was Norwegian . . . just like [you are." Quick anger darkened those [blue eyes before her. Elaine al- imost gasped in dismay. Too late she realized that her words could anean only one thing to Mrs. JDahlstrom. This young female whippersnapper was telling Signe Amundsen Dahlstrom that iNorse.blood entitled her without question to a place in the Dahl- istrom home! There was a commotion on the porch. Mrs. Dahlstrom stood up. "Here are the men. We can dish up the supper. Would you be so kind as to slice some bread? You can use that blue plate with the Japanese picture on it. There, on the wall shelf." Her expression and tone was what Elaine thought to be normal again, but in her eyes glowed the embers of a banked fire. Elaine wouldn't woo back her feeling of tranquility, not even when Tom burst into the kitchen and, enveloping her with the admiration in his eyes, introduced her to Bill Steen, the hired man. When they were all seated around the supper table, Mrs. Dahlstrom bowed her head to say grace. Although Elaine didn't understand the short Norwegian prayer, Mrs. Dahlstrom's genuine attitude of humbleness and thanksgiving gave majesty and dignity to the richly accented phrases. $iaine found herself breathing a prayer of thanks, too. For Tom and the good life they could have together. Yet the disquiet remained inside her. She had no appetite for the food that Tom heaped on her plate. However, sensing that Mrs. Dahlstrom abhorred waste, she forced herself to swallow forkful after forkful that settled in her stomach as heavy as the old grindstone she had glimpsed leaning against the garage. * * * TT was like a prisoner's reprieve when at last Mrs. Dahl- strom'stood up. Quickly, Elaine arose also and began to stack the dishes. "Tom," she asked, jokingly, "are you going to help me do dishes?" Out of the corner of her eye, she saw his mother's questioning glance. It was not one of whole-hearted approval. ."That's what a husband is for, I suppose." He grinned and pushed back his chair. "Maybe Bill wants to get into the act, too." "Not me," Bill exclaimed and started for the door opening into the dining room. "If marriage does that to a man, I'm sure glad I found out in time." Mrs. Dahlstrom waited until Bill had left the kitchen before she said to Tom, "I never thought anyone could get you to do dishes." Her words were tinged with sarcasm. It was good to put her hands in the hot soapy water. Everything was going to be all right, she told herself. It was fun doing dishes with Tom in their own home. Then, inevitably, dismay lashed through the thought. This wasn't their own home. It belonged to Tom's mother, Mrs. Dahlstrom. Mrs, Dahlstrom, the unapproachable. Consciously and subconsciously, she couldn't think of her as anything but 'Mrs. Dahlstrom." And Tom had told his mother, 'You're the boss." Xh« figure* go the blue piitt she held under the hot water faucet seemed to blur and darken into an indigo cloud. Fright crawled through her. Was it 'an omen? A forewarning that there would always be a black cloud over their lives as long as they lived here? r _ She tried to shake off the feeling. Why, already Mrs. Dahlstrom had softened a little. She smiled up at Tom and held out the plate for him to take. "Tom," Mrs. Dahlstrom called j from the living room, "You'd I better hurry out there. You must 1 get cleaned up. I have invited Astrid Nelson over tonight," The words whipped out at Elaine. She felt her smile petrify. Then she heard the sound of breaking china. Horrified, she stared down. Immediately, Mrs. Dahlstrom was at her side. "Oh, no!" she cried, "not my Japanese plate." * * * CTOOPING, she began to gather ^ up the fragments. "Oh. no, not my Japanese plate," she moaned again and then her voice broke, "I'm sorry. I'm so terribly sorry," Elaine cried, her own voice grating on her ears, "I'll get you another." She knew that the same misery ,that filled her, filled Mrs. Dahlstrom's blue eye* that now were fixed on the chipi in her hand. "You can't replace some things." Mrs. Dahlstrom wrung the words put. "Torvald gave that plate to me." Dropping the chips to the floor, Mrs. Dahlstrom struggled to her feet and rushed toward the door. Elaine heard her hurry across the linoleum floored dining room. Then her footsteps were muffled in the heavy carpet of the living room and the sound of her bedroom door closing echoed throughout the house. Elaine continued to stare at the floor, not daring to look at Tom. Yet, a comforting insight came to her. It took away part of her misery and fear. Mrs. Dahlstrom had shown by her reaction to tht broken plate that it was Tom's father whom she really loved, not Elr.' ie'p falhcr.
