Phone 3-4360 XV fpHE danger of an outburst was past and Elaine tried to bring her voice into its natural range. "How is your thumb, Mrs. Dahlstrom? I see you've taken off the bandage." Mrs. Dahlstrom put aside the spoon and placed the bowl on the kitchen table. She held out her hand for Elaine to inspect. For a second, Elaine had the fantastic notion that Mrs. Dahlstrorn was like a little child begging for sympathy over a hurt finger. That notion was almost as fantastic as the sympathy Elaine herself felt, for it was more than sympathy for some little physical pain. There was no inflammation in the thumb, and only a thin, black line showed where it had been cut. "It's nothing," Mrs. Dahlstrom declared. "It'll take a lot more than a little nick like that to get me off my feet." Mrs. Dahlstrom busied herself again before she spoke, underscoring what she had to say with physical movement. "Why don't you go upstairs and rest awhile before supper? You must have had a hard day. Tm sure you're tired." With disbelief, Elaine noted the tone of compassion in Mrs. Dahlstrom's voice. But no, it couldn't be sincere. Mrs. Dahlstrom wasn't going to be won over that easily. Elaine took a warm shower, recrimsoned her lips, combed her hair. Then she lay down on the bed in her rob$ until Tom's and Bill's foosteps on the porch reverberated through the house: Quickly dressing, she arrived in the kitchen as Mrs. Dahlstrom put the last steaming bowl on the table. Tom looked at her inquiringly. He seemed about to say, I thought you were going to help Ma. Or was it a prick of her own conscience, that made her wish she had come down sooner? She should have helped somehow. "Lenny," Tom said grandly, "Ma says you're to drive her car back and forth to school." His six feet seemed to stretch upward a little with the words. Catching her breath in utter astonishment, Elaine suddenly sat down in the chair he held out for her. She looked across the table into Mrs. Dahlstrom's remote face and started to speak. Mrs. Dahlstrom checked her. "It stands in the garage most of the time anyway," she said flatly. "You might as well use it. Can't expect others to drive you back and forth. And Tom is too busy to take you down mornings and go after you every evening." Dismissing the entire subject, she bowed her head and said grace. * * » HPHE next 16 days, when she had time to think about it, Elaine grudgingly admitted that Mrs. Dahlstrom had been right. Tom was too busy. Apparently the whole farm, the barns and the outbuildings, had been neglected during the years he had been at the University and in the Army. Tom was determined to restore everything before the first snowstorm howled out of the north. He got up long before daybreak. Often he was out in the fields before Elaine waked up and she had only a wave of his hand for a good-morning kiss. At night he listened to the newscast, scanned his farm journals for a while, and trudged up to bed. Elaine had always known tKis reserved side in Tom's nature, but since they had come home he was downright taciturn. It as if like he, too, sensed ihe animosity that Elaine knew smoldered in his mother's breast and was going to say nothing that might bring it out in the open or tell Elaine he realized it was there. On several occasions she had noticed him glancing from her to his mother. a .baffled look wavering through the affection in his eyes. Usually. he seemed to be waiting philo- sophically. As he had often said, things usually work themselves out, if you give them time. Elaine was thankful that good health and exhaustion let her collapse into sleep at night. The days were much more difficult The knowledge that she, a new graduate with a minimum of experience, was taking the place of a capable teacher twice her age made her try too hard. At the end of each day she was more fatigued than the day before. Yet she wasn't thankful when the final bell sounded each afternoon. Each time she flipped over a page on Mrs. FarrelFs desk calendar, a premonition worsened like a slow-growing chimera. The premonition was that Mrs. Dahlstrom would throw her bodily out of the big white house when she witnessed Elaine's dance at the high school minstrel show. Elaine could almost see the banked fires in Mrs-. Dahlstrom's eyes shoot into flames, the thin, composed face become livid with rage. She had never seen it happen. That made the vision more terrifying. * * * ANY sensible person, Elaine •^ told herself, would have refused to perform that silly dance. Yet, a curious mixture of defiance and daring and vanity made her secret rehearsals with Marion the most exhilarating part of the day. Several times, Elaine was on the verge of telling Tom her secret But each time, when the words were on the tip of her tongue, it struck her anew how much his eyes were like those of his mother. Elaine was afraid she would see the same sort of disapproval in Tom's eyes that often shone in Mrs. Dahlitrom's So Elaine kept silent. On .Friday night, Oct. 21, the villagers would learn that Elaine Allen Dahlstrom hadn't worked so hard at the University of Wisconsin that she had forgotten how to dance; And that becom- ng a Dahlstrom hadn't had such a sobering effect on her that she lad traded her natural gaiety for her mother-in-law's stiff— Should Elaine call it snobbery? <T» B HEADQUARTERS FOR PLAY EQUIPMENT Swinrs, Slides, Sand Boxes *nd Monkey Climbs Hubbard Hardware Golden Hamsters Rare Albino Hamsters (Solid White with Pink Eyes- Baby Turtles • Salamanders (Water Newts) • White Face Capuchin Monkeys • Beautiful Tropical Fish and Young Parakeets.
