' By Gudren OlsonJ ' ~ xvn "OUTTING her hands, wet with * dishwater, on her hips, Elaine scolded, "Don't stand there staring. Go 'way. You're interfering with progress." "Not me," Tom said, relaxing and sliding into a kitchen chair. He took out a cigaret and lit it. "My presence is an inspiration. Hurry. Get inspired. If you don't we'll be late. Or, perish th€ thought, I'll feel obliged to wipe some dishes." Elaine spun around back to the sink again. She pulled the plug and the soapy dishwater gurgled down the drain. "Not tonight, you won't do dishes. Besides, wiping dishes is a waste of dishtowels and woman ... or man . . . power. Let the dishes drain dry!" With superficial energy, she quickly scoured the sink, wrung out the dishcloth and hung it over the arm of the faucet Then, bending over Tom, she kissed him ifgntly on the forehead, slipped out of the circle of his arm and skipped out of the kitchen. It wasnt until she was running up the stairs that she realized that the door to Mrs. Dahlstrom's room was open. Supposing that Mrs. Dahlstrom bad heard her scoff at the homely task of drying dishes? Even il Mrs. Dahlstrom hadn't heard, what would she say when she saw the rack of dishes draining in the sink? That sink probably hadn't held a dirty dish for more than 15 minutes since the house was built. Elaine sighed. What was the we? Mrs. Dahlstrom would never give way to modern ways of doing things Whatever Elaine did, she woulc^'t be right. But Elaine had no time for such thoughts. She must hurry. Tom WAS already uneasy because •he wasn't ready to dash off to the high school this very minute. He whistled softly when she MIM tack dowm I* the 7V a few minutes later dressed in her trim navy blue wedding suit. Would he, she pondered and the pondering sent rays of tension to every nerve in her body, whistle at "Molly Brown" later this evening? And the cleaned up person who had been "Molly Brown" a bit later? "All set for the big show?" he asked, getting up. She nodded. "Let's go then." Fleetingly, she hoped that his mother had decided not to accompany them. What luck! Then, defeated, she knew, just as she had known that Tom had come into the kitchen a short while ago, that Mrs. Dahlstrom was standing behind her in the doorway. She turned. With her usual childish lack of control, she gave voice to the first observation that popped into Jier bead. "How lovely you are!" she declared. "Is that a new dress?" • » • A CUTE embarrassment flitted across Mrs. Dahlstrom's face and her pale cheeks colored. She was completely taken aback. Lowering her eyes, she rubbed her hands down the sides of her skirt, smoothing the soft black silk. "Why, yes," she said, "it is new." There was a funny ring in her voice and when she finally looked at Elaine there was an expression in her eyes as though she wanted to laugh or cry, Elaine wasn't sure which. But she was sure of one thing. She shouldn't have said a word about the dress. One didn't get that personal with Mrs. Dahlstrom. When Tom held the door of hi£ car open for them, Mrs. Dahlstrom crawled into the back seat. As they drove toward the village, Elaine couldn't rid herself of the strange feeling that rightfully Mrs. Dahlstrom should be sitting in the front where Elaine was seated. Perhaps Tom agreed. Elaine couldn't tell what Tom thought most of the time any more. He just stared over her head or straight through her. Panic flooded over Elaine. Now memory of Tom's avowal of love carried quite enough conviction to drive the panic out at her mind. People changed from day to day. Everyone changed, that is. excepting Mrs. Dahlstrom. No doubt her very changelessness would finally convince Tom that Elaine wasn't worthy of a Dahlstrom's love. Elaine couldn't control the tremor that passed through her. It seemed to rebound from every muscle of her body. Tom pulled into the parking lot. Elaine scrambled from the car. She practically bounded away toward the rear entrance. She heard her own words trail after her in a thin, high voice, "Enjoy the show. I'll see you later." Some of her panic disappeared backstage as she was caught up in the pre-curtain bustle and moments bounced forward. • • • A TALL, la;iky lad at last •^ jerked the rope that spread the auditorium curtains apart and the show was on. The first number, a quartet, aroused a boom of applause. Marion Erickson clutched Elaine's arms. "Lenny! Lenny! You hear that? People are actually applauding our show." Both of them giggled, but Marion could be proud of her work- in a way, so could Elaine be proud. For she had helped. The applause grew. The din of clapping was sincere after every number. Perhaps it was not a Broadway hit, but it was entertainment. There wer« rough spots, to be sure, but these were high school boys and girls—and a teacher or two—not professional actors. Then, at last Elaine heard a male voice that hadn't quite reached its authentic masculine pitch announcing the next number, "Miss Molly Brown," the voic* said. That was Elaine.
