J - J strom, "I'll be right down/ iShe ran lightly down the stairs In the living room, Elaine «topp«d short, agreeably surprised. Standing beside Mrs 'Dahlstrom was Mr. Conners, the (principal of the Rudeville High ISchool. She had not seen him isince she had gone away to col- flege, but he looked much the :same as he had when she graduated. A short man, only slightly italler than Mrs. Dahlstrom's «houlder. He was thinner how•ever, and more harried looking than he had seemed to Elaine rwhen she was a student in his toistory class. "Why, Mr. Conners!" Elaine exclaimed. "How nice to see ycu!** Mr. Conners' face lost some of its harried look as, gripping her hand warmly, he said, "Well, well, our little Lenny has grown up, a university graduate, and married to a fine young man! My best wishes for your happiness, my dear!" Elaine laughed. "Thank you, Mr. Conners! Now you must account for yourself. What are you doing away from room 1-A before the noon bell?" "Mr. Conners cam* up to see you," Mrs. Dahlstrom said. Elaine started, not at the information Mrs. Dahlstrom gave, but at the peculiar ring in her voice. The banked flres in Mrs. Dahlstrom's eyes denied it, but the tone of her voic* held respect Respect! Elaine's confldtnc* swelled and UTIP smiled at Mr. Conners. "V>n; about?" "Aoout helping ui out down «t the school. Our home economics teacher, Mrs. Farrell, has taken ill suddenly . . . has to have an emergency appendectomy. I thought—ahem!—I hoped maybe you'd take over for a few weeks." His eyes went from the plain gold band on her left hand to Mrs. Dahlstrom's impassive face and then back to Elaine. "That is, if you have time." "Of course, I have time," Elaine exclaimed. This was a godsend. She must keep herself occupied. If she didn't, she'd brood too much over Mrs. Dahlstrom's evident rejection of her. Yes, and Tom's apparent inability to see anything but goodness and purity in his mother. "When do I start?" For an instant, she had to tighten the muscles of her limbs to keep her feet from flipping about in the lively steps of "Mr. Taptoe." Mr. Conners rubbed his hands together in a gesture of relief. "If you hurry," he said, "we can get to the school in time t" help Mrs. Conners and Miss Erickson, the English teacher, dish up the hot lunch." Grinning as though he had made quit* a joke, he added, "I'll make arrangements for you to ride back and forth to the village." * • • COMETHING compelled Elaine to turn to Mrs. Dthlstrom. Disapproval again hovered about her lips and she seemed about to object. The idea of Tom's wife working! Her nostrils fiared slightly, but she said calmly, "I'll fix Mr. Conners and you a sandwich while you get ready, Elaine. You can't begin a job on j an empty stomach." Elaine's feet lagged as she excused herself and started back upstairs. Shouldn't she talk this over with Tom? It was almost time for him and Bill to come in from the field. Mrs. Dahlstrom must be trying to get rid of her as quickly as possible! Maybe she, too, had seen Arlrid and WM afraid Elaine would make a scene. Well, Elaine wouldn't She'd never mention it to Tom. But, wouldn't he wonder when he found his bride had taken a job without even telling him before she took off to fulfill it? Irresolute, she paused at the door of the bedroom. Then thrusting aside the irresolution with both hands, she quickly changed into her blue jer. y dress, freshened her lipstick and ran a comb through her hair. Mrs. Dahlstrom had heard her accept the job, "right now." She'd think she was wishy- washy, besides everything else, if she dallied. Besides, Tom might as well learn today that she had a mind of her own, too. The sound of enthusiastic conversation came to Elaine's ears wher she returned downstairs. Out in the kitchen, Mr. Conners was already seated at the kitchen table, impatiently eying the substantial cold beef sandwich on the platter in the middle of the red-plaid luncheon cloth. * * * TN spite of her impatience to be off, Elaine was surprised to discover that she was hungry. The sandwiches were delicious. Or perhaps they tasted good because, oddly enough, Mrs. Dahlstrom seemed to enjoy watching not only Mr. Conners, but her, eat them. Truly, hers was the kind of hospitality that knew no greater compliment than to have that hospitality accepted ... by anyone. Although she couldnt see Tom in the fteld astride his tractor, the machine's monotonous drone attained a kind of musical quality as it drifted across the meadows and through the window at Elaine's elbow. She started to relax. "Well,* said Mr. Conners, "it 1 ! time we should be going." Elaine felt Mrs. Dahlstrom's eyes on her. She turned to her mother-in-law. "Explain to Tom," she Mid to Mrs. Dahlstrom. "Tell him how it was and why I didn't have time to say foodby to him.* "I will," Mid Mrs. Dahlstrom.
