Mr. Jonas is train- [ing the songsters and they're ! doing fine. But I just can't seem {to get any life into the dances iTve got two left feet and so has every student in school.** She .paused out of breath, but Elaine iread the question glinting in her feyes. She moved her head from side "to- side in a very pronounced "Think of the community •'Lenny. Everybody who has a youngster in school will come, 'They've a right to expect amuse- .ment when they buy a ticket 'Besides," she added firmly, "it's :your duty as a teacher. Elaine shook her head less excessively. Within five minutes she :had agreed not only to do the jig, >but com* down to the school Again this evening to help with the rehearsals. Marion offered to drive her Ihome, but all at once she wanted -""!to walk the short mile, to feel -(under her feet a portion of the (familiar path of many a girlhood bike. She made the "No" stick this time. Soon she was swinging along the fringes of the asphalt road that arched over the hill from the village. A short distance on the other side of the hill was the dirt road that curved into the Dahl- itrom farm. When the road came into view, a big hand seemed to clutch at Elaine's throat. What would Mrs. Dahlstrom say when *he discovered that Tom's wife was going to dance a jig in the high school? Would she think Elaine would make a «p«cttcl« t>t herself? Astrid might play a concerto or dance a ballet, if sh« -could, but jig? Never! The squeal of a car obeying brakes int^-n^ted h«r gloomy thoughti. Inrtinc Jerry Schmidt held his car door open. "Don't tell me our new substitute teacher walks home from work;** Somehow Elaine had sensed that Jerry was sensitive in spite of Ms habitually arrogant expression. Therefore, rather than hurt his feelings by saying she preferred to walk the rest of the way, she slid in beside him. She smiled at him and demanded impertinently, "How did you know I'm a substitute teacher? I started only this afternoon." He grinned at her before he pressed down on the accelerator and gave all his attention to the road. "News travels. The party line, you know." Party line. Perhaps Mrs. Dahlstrom had told someone. Or. had Astrid come riding through the forest on her sorrel mare again this afternoon and found out from Tom? That was more likely. "Hey, Lenny," Jerry exclaimed. "Why the worried brow? Were the teen-age monsters too tough for you?" • • * "PLAINE moved her head from side to side, trying to shake off the thought of Tom and Astrid havinf another cornfield tete-a-tete. "Why, no. It'i just ;hat, like a simpleton, I promised to jig at the high school minstrel show." Tint. Ill come." "It's not only that I'm scared, ['m worried about how Mrs. Dahlstrom will feel on the sub- iect." As she g«v« voice to her tears, she felt a terror worse than >efore. What would her straight- faced mother-in-law think? Jerry shrugged. "Don't tell her. Be the mystery of the min- ftr«ls." Well, she mused, that was half i folution. "I might b« that eiy thing," the Mid, imlling at to rough-hewn profile. "Now ;C'VP settled my troubles, toll rr •bout jouri." j rtnaant gh* on* aof I cooperation, even with Tom off the eligible list. Can't understand that woman. She's not in love with him. Or anyone, except Astrid. She makes no sense at all. A woman with a fine education staying at home doing nothing but flit over the back roads on that sorrel mare . . . and keeping my blood pressure at a slow boil." He looked out of the corners of his eyes at her. "Maybe I'd better concentrate on you. Married women are safer, they tell me." "Don't worry about it," she parried. "If you want Astrid, you keep after her." * * » A T that instant the spacious •^ Dahlstrom yard spread out before them as the car turned off the road. To Elaine it seemed absurdly like a refuge from an idiotic, but confusing situation. The car skidded to a stop. Tom came striding toward :hem and she forgot every emotion except the thrill of being with him. Longing to rush into his arms, she jumped out of the car. Then without knowing why, she hesitated, waiting for him to come to her. Still effervescent with the joy of seeing him, she cried, "Hi, Tom." The whole earth seemed o rock under his heavy footstep* as he approached. His square jaw had the un- ielding line of chiseled granite. His voice sounded a tone or two ower when he said, "Hello." The word included both of them. Something seemed to pass behind lis eyes, as he glanced from Slaine to Jerry, who said, "Hi, Tom," and took out al cigaret. For no reason at all a ridicu- ous feeling of having done some- hing wrong began to worm its way through Elaine's joy. The arth stopped rocking and the ection of earth designated as the 3ahlstrom farm was hard and mmovable under her feet. Tom wasn't smiling. Elaine 'ondered if Tom was actually ealoui of Jerry Schmidt. Or erhaps Tom was displeased with T for ar-cc-! ; n«! the subs'itute teaching job at the high school.
