(ff 1 )—Unless the human race turns back to more outdoor living, it may soon be plagued •with "boudoir blindness." That's the warning from Dr. Ned p. Hobbs, president of the South Carolina Optometric Assn., who says—the human eye was not made for modern living. "Nature intended man to use his eyes to stalk game and look off into the horizon," says Dr. Hobbs, "not for intricate ta*ks within arm's length." Watch for Our GRAND OPENING TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!

Hubbard & Son FURNITURE THE STORTi Lenny Dfthl- fttrom, nensinfC that «he ha« not won the approval ot her mother- in-law, with rrkom Lenny and her younjc hnubnnd have lived •ince their recent marriaare. i« determined to break down the fcnrriers that seem to exist between them. Bnt almost every- thinff Lenny does *cem* wrong-, and the yonn* bride ncnses day« of misery ahead. * * * A CHUCKLING sound, the first real laugh Elaine had heard from Mrs. Dahlstrom, made .Elaine turn her head. "That horse!" She laughed again far back in her throat. "How he hated the sight of a woman." "I guess he Still does," Waine replied, smiling. "Nevertheless, Rex took a loaf of sugar from me before he jerked away." She watched Mrs. Dahlstrom and when the austere look did not reappear immediately a warm sensation began to flow inside the young woman. Then Mrs. Dahlstrom stopped smiling. Her dark eyebrows raised in disbelief. "You didn t go near that horse, did you?" "Yes. I thought he might be friendly." _ V1 "Wcll, he won't be," Mrs. Dahlstrom warned. Elaine's blood seemed to turn to ice in her veins as the notion flitted through her mind that Mrs. Dahlstrom meant that she wouldn't be friendly either. Rubbing her cold hands together first, she picked up a circlet of. dough and dropped it into the hot fat. Whatever made her think she could say or do anything that would please this woman? A chilly rivulet of perspiration began to trickle down her spine. Was Mrs. Dahlstrom working to destroy Tom's love for her, just like she was destroying Elaine s ielf-«steem? The question bit at her with the open fangs of « snake and Elaine could feel the strange poison of hatred begin to seep through her vein*. When at last the final doughnut wai coolinf on brown p«per, a totally perverse sense of obligation Elaine was powerless to deny, prompted her to ask, "Is there anything else I can do for you? Dust? Or vacuum?" N "No, thank you," Mrs. Dahlstrom said roughly. Elaine could almost feel the effort she had to make to control her voice. "You've done enough already." Again, Elaine sensed a double meaning. Elaine had taken Tom. She felt weak with discouragement "I'll go upstairs and unpack then," she said, wondering if Mrs. Dahlstrom noted the tremor in her voice. She escaped the kitchen, but Mrs. Dahlstrom's enigmatical eyes seemed to follow her iiiruugii the house and up the stairs. • • • CWINGING her heavy suitcase ^ upon the window seat, she opened it and was about to unfasten the hanger clasp when she glanced out the window. A long wire of pain pierced her heart Tom's tractor was parked at the far end of the east field. Near him, on the other side of the fente, pranced a sorrel horse. Even at this distance, Elaine could see how the sun burnished its sleek hide with the same brilliant color caught in the hair that billowed around the shoulders of his rider. Elaine's fingers seemed to congeal around the hanger clasp. Bitterly, sh« wondered what Tom and Astrid wert talking about Or perhaps Astrid was doing all the talking, hypnotizing Tom with her charming witticisms and tinkling laughter. An eternity dragged by before the sorrel horse wheeled around and the trees guarding a secret trail through the forest %hid him and Astrid from view. Tom'f tractor moved slowly across the field. The spot whert Astrid had vanished seemed to besmudge th«-whole length of the •utumn- hued forest For • long time Elaine kept her «yes on it. while UM lod-n wtifht *f ness settled around her. Automatically, she started to close the suitcase. Why unpack at all? Better to go today than postpone her leave-taking until her spirit was dead as a stump on the hill. As Mrs. Dahlstrom said, k was better to live down a mistake than to try to live with one. The snap of the suitcase clasps was like a bomb-burst in tht quiet room. Inexplicably, exasperation, like steam from a geyser, began to spurt through Elaine. Opening the suitcase again, she yanked out the carefully packed dresses, whipped them through the air, scattering tissue on the floor, jerked open the closet door and hung them. • * * W7"HY must she always sell her" self short? What was the matter with her anyway? Tom loved her. He said so. Period. He had said his mother was swell. Period. He had said nothing about Astrid. It was up to her to find out whether Astrid was important to him or not No sensible woman would make an issue of a neighborly chat over the back fence, whether that fence enclosed a 1000-foot by 60 lot or a 200-acre farm. Ecstacy began to merge with her exasperation as she arranged her few pieces of clean lingerie in the dresser drawer. Rinsing out some of her soiled undergarments, she hung them on th« towel rack in the bathroom. The laundry sack of dirty clothes she thrust behind the tub and wondered when she'd get the courage to ask Mrs. Dahlstrom if she could u«e the washing machine. Next, she must go downstairs to Tom's old room and bring up his clothing. What pleasure it was going to be to do things for Tom. Ever since her parents died, she had had no one to do things for really, except herself. She sighed, thinking of the future and a golden bubble of happiness surrounded her. "Elaine. Elaine. Will you come down, please." The pitch of Mr*. Dahlstrom's voice told Elaine that this was not the flnt time she had called. The unmistakable command pricked at tb* bubble, but it didn't burst.
