IX HpHROUGH the window Elaine •^ could see the broad, rolling field near the forest where Tom's plow was turning over neat ribbons of moist, black soil. "Please let me take the lunch to the menfolks," she pleaded. Then she added shyly, "Perhaps there's enough coffee in the thermos for me, too." Quickly, Mrs. Dahlstrom cut off two more slices of the fragrant bread, scraped butter across, dabbed on a spoonful of jam, and clapped them together. She put the sandwich" with the others in the whit* napkin and added another cup before she handed the basket to Elaine and said, "I suppose you don't approve of between-meal snacks." For a brief moment Elaine had the sensation, incomprehensible though it was/ that Mrs. Dahlstrom wanted her approval. Pushing aside the thought, she nevertheless agreed with complete honesty, "We made a lot of experiments at school that proved that laboring men—and women, too—need that extra energy. They can do better work, too, after they've had a coffee break." "Well," Mrs. Dahlstrom re : joined, "I hope Tom will take one. He was in such a hurry to get out in the field this morning he hardly touched his breakfast." Elaine smiled and tried to sound cheerful and confident, "Oh, I'll makt him **t fome- thing." The icy look came back to Mrs. Dahlstrom'$ «ye« and she spoke through tight lips, "A Dahlitrom doesn't take to nagging." Trying to run away from this new hurt, Elaine flung out the door and hurried down the path toward the lane. The few moments with Tom and the brisk hike back through the stubbly fields made her feei better. It was almost peculiar how dense Tom was as far as his mother was concerned. He didn't seem to think anything was amiss. He was just happy, thoroughly happy, to be home. Tom would be happy here even without her, she decided. If things came to a showdown between his mother and her, which would he choose? His mother and the farm? Or her? Well, maybe the decision would never have to be made. It was up to her. If only she had the poise and assurance of Astrid Nelson. Then she wotid have never broken that old blue plate. And she would never have gone cold and stupid with apprehension if an old girl-friend of Tom's had come to call. • • • THREADING the moment when •^ she must step into the kitchen again, Elaine dallied at the wa- tertank and absently rubbed the forelock of the old brown ho«e indolently mouthing the clear, cool water. He tolerated the attention for a few seconds, then he tossed his head out of reach, throwing a spray of water across Elaine's sweater. Flattening his ears he, too, seemed to stare with disapproval at her. Taking a lump of sugar from the basket, she held it out to him. He lipped it from her hand. Then he tossed his head again, disdainfully, and backed out of reach. Elaine sighed. Even the old horse wasn't going to accept her without a bit of discord first. She started up the hill. In spite of her awkward thumb, Mrs. Dahlstrom was rolling out a mound of dough on a large, squart breadboard. Elaint set tht basktt on th* sink drainboard and listened toi the flutter of her heart for a second before she said, "Let me do that for you." l ^Do you know how to make doughnuts?" Mrs. Dahlstrom askec" skeptically. Elaine censed a challenge in the woman's voice, too. The rolling pin oegan to move less vigorously. Here was Elaine's chance to show she wasn't as helpless a», she appeared! Slipping off her sweater. Elaine replied, "I was a home economics nfejor." * * • CHE was certain, when Mrs. ^ Dahlstrom surrendered the rolling pin to her, it wasn't because she really wanted help. Mrs. Dahlstrom would treat an almost deadly wound as though it were a mere scratch. The bruise on ier thumb was worth no notice at all. It was only that the woman wanted to see tf Elaine could do a decent job. Elaine quaked inwardly when Mrs. Dahlstrom sat down by the window to watch and satisfy her curiosity. The familiar movements of her task began to soothe Elaine's jagged nerves. Breaking the awkward silence that always seemed to engulf her and Mrs. Dahlstrom, she said, "What's the name of that old brown horse?" Mrs. Dahlstrom twisted the thick gold band on her finger and said softly, "Rex." Her voic* began to vibrate with •motion as she continued, "Poor old nag. Good for nothing except fox meat. Mr. Dahlstrom was very fond ot Rex. I couldn't sell the old beast to tht foxea. He's earned a rest* Again, Elaine wanted to say something kind. But, for her, it was impossible to express sympathy to this woman, who always managed to stay reserved and aloof. Self-consciously, Elaina' said. "I dont think Rex is very fond of anyone." The other shook her head. Rex used to be a wild one," she said, recalling other, happier days. "Years ago we didnt bar* tractors, you know. My husband, Torvald, was tht only man in thttt parts wht Rax." <Tt By BILL WALKER WHILE WC IS VACATION! M'OiWt tf- LONtlN&'lS PEKTCCTED W'T" W. L. WALKER INSURANCE AGENCY Gienco Bldj. .
