What did she approve? Astrid's attitude? Elaine's spunk? No. it couldn't be that As though she felt a dra;t, Mrs. Dahlstrom pulled her light •coat together and buttoned the [single large button at the neck. ;"Well," she said, "you young tfolks better get started." She ,'st.ood aside to let them precede jher. Involuntarily, Elaine hung back. "Aren't you coming?" she asked. Mrs. Dahlstrom shook her head and gave an order, "Now you run along." "Then we must take you home first," Elaine protested. Tom laughed. "Not Ma. She's a big girL She'll drive my car home." Jerry held the door open and, after Astrid had passed through, Tom urged Elaine ahead of him. Their feet scrunched along the cindered parking lot, past Tom's car, to Jerry's convertible In the furtherest corner. When they zoomed out of the lot and down the street toward Pete's Place, Elaine had the feeling that they had left bcnind a lonely woman, who didn't want to be lonely It gave •*. & hojilow sensation and, then, the guflt that often hung over her in Mrs. Dahlstrom's home reiurnfd. But why should she feel this way. when her own son, a devoted son, didn't give a thought to the fact that she had to drive home alone to a dark, •ilent house? When they -*encd the door of Pete's Place, the animated noisiness of the high school crowd, ctlcbrant with the outcome of their §how tad no clMMt tomorrow, enfolded them. They found a booth in the back and Tom ordered f-ur hot choc'laics. While tney waited to be served, [stretched taut between Elaine and Astrid. It seemed to rise above the clamor in the cafe and hang menacingly there above them. Tom, at least, seemed unaware of the tense at, mosphere. yet it seemed to engulf both him and Jerry in an air of confusion. j It was ridiculous, Elaine | thought. Four adults sitting like ;-a quartet of mute oofs! Pretending to relax against the cushioned plastic of the oooth, she ( sighed in pretense of gladness ' and made herself say. "Haven't these autumn days been unbelievably beautiful?" Tom grunted, "Too bad you haven't been able to get outside and en:oy them." | The veiled resentment in his voice snapped at her. Tom had | never spoken to her in that tone I before. j What had she done? j "She's right, Tom," Astrid said 1 sweetly and her tinkling laugh• ter crashed against Elaine's ears. "The days have been lovely, haven't they?" I * ' ' ''POM smiled across the table at i •"• her. "They sure have." The i normal enthusiasm was back in his voice now. The memory of what must have been a recent conversation came to him and he inquired of Astrid. with a hint of familiarity that was a knife thrust in Elaine's heart, "By the way, did you bear whether or , no! Johnson decided to buy that inew multicrop outfit?" "Oh," Astrid replied, and her tinkling laughter was intimate and subdued, saying things that had nothing to do with Johnson, whoever he was. and his multi- crop outfit, whatever that was. "He can't decide what he wants first Tomorrow he's going up to St. Paul to look at a new hillside combine and a oower spreader Yoi know how old Johnson is." Elaine tried to shul out the Sb« didn't know any- thing about what they were discussing, but she did know that Astrid and Tom had talked about this before. It was something Elaine had tried not to suspect these past weeks. Astrid had ridden over by her forest path j to visit Tom again. Perhaps she came every day. * In her mind's eye, Elaine could see Astrid astride her sorrel mare, her startling amber hair taking more beauty from the warm autumn sun. Again Elaine was conscious of her own glamorless black hair and quite ordinary face. Once more she wondered what Tom had seen in her when he could have had Astrid as a bride. This time as she was sunk in her thoughts, Tom had no reassuring glances or words for Elaine. He was too enraptured in Astrid's intelligent talk about mod• ern farm machinery, a subject i Elaine knew nothing about. Or I perhaps Tom was only enrap- 'tured in Astrid herself. i The knife in Elaine's heart I seemed to twist and she leaned | back against the plastic cushions as if in pain. ; TTNCEREMONIOUSLY, Jerry ^ interrupted Astrid'i flow of words. "The hot chocolate doesn't seem to be getting here very fast, but some of these bobby-soxers seem to be leaving. How about a dance?" 1 Asxrid shook her head. "No, I'd rather talk." And she blinked her eyes at Tom. "Well, don't say I didn't ask you, honey chile," said Jerry. He turned to Elaine and winked. "It is really you I want to cling to, baby. Not every day I trip the light fantastic with the star of the show." Slipping out of the booth, Jerry said to Tom, "It you'll watch, I'll show your wife how we jitterbug Milwaukee style." Without glancing back at Tom, Elaine let Jerry take her hand and lead her to the Jukebox. She watched him slot • coin and punch several large, square red buttons. As they waited for the first record to drop, she burst out, "Jerry, what shall I do?** Political Announcement The Courier News Is authorized to announce the following candidate for the Preferential Primary July 27.
