(Buddy; Howard HEADQUARTERS FOR PLAY EQUIPMENT Swings, Slides, Sand BOXM and Monkey Climbt Hubbard Hardware O*o wg i xxrv fl^HE accusation in Mrs. Nelson's •*• voice lashed out at Elaine and the last vestige of her confidence oozed away. Astrid's mother suspected that Elaine had broken that plate and was reminding iMrs. Dahlstrom of that fact "Yes, Mary, it was broken," (Mrs. Dahlstrom admitted with junbelievable nonchalance. . "Oh, how awful! How on earth ! did you do it? You were always so careful with your things." • Mrs. Dahlstrom shrugged incongruously- "An accident. They happen. No one ever breaks plates on purpose." Mrs. Dahlstrom glanced to the doorway and saw Elaine. For a moment she seemed ready to smile, then apparently decided not to. ' Without knowing what to do, lElaine put out her hand to steady herself. Mrs. Nelson followed Mrs. iDahlstrom's eyes to Elaine in the 'doorway. She stiffened, but did •not smile. " ''Mary," Mrs. Dahlstrom said, "I think you know Elaine, my daughter-in-law. She went to Eigh school in Rudeville. Elaine, •this is Mary Nelson, A^tr^'s mother." ,1 Mrs. Nelson's cold eyes seemed to shoot shiny arrows of enmity toward Elaine. ""Automatically, Elaine extended her hand as she went across the jrbom to the kitchen table. "Hello, Mrs. Nelsoia." : Mrs. Nelson let her hand hang in Elaine's hand. The clasp seemed limp and calloused during the second it lasted. Then the Older woman asked, "Was that fou playing the piano?" .* Mutely, Elaine nodded. * Mrs. Nelson's lips curled but they did not seem to make a «nile. "Astrid always plays those piece*. You've heard her, haven't you, Signe? She's a fine player, Astrid is. A fine player." She repeated the words with emphasis that was not lost on Elaine. Mm. Maltnn WM «iflffMtia£ ^^fl^,,i*XMHRSSB . *nBF ^HBB!WSK*t Astrid's rendition was much more worthy. "Those old Norwegian songs are nice when you know how to play them." As though her hands were at fault, Elaine thrust them behind her. "I'm really not much of a musician." "If I were the lady my friend Signe pretends to be, I'd congratulate you, Elaine, for hooking Tom Dahlstrom. But I can't be a hypocrite" "Mary!" Signe Dahlstrom's voice cracked like a whip. * * • TV/TRS. NELSON turned her fury m on Mrs. Dahlstrom. "I'm going to speak my mind, Signe. Tom should have married Astrid. This marriage to the Allen girl won't work out. Hell soon get tired of a woman who'll cavort around the high school auditorium stage like a Hottentot, making like she thinks she's a chorus girl!" Mrs. Nelson paused, almost panting, to gather vehemence for more words. "I'm surprised at you, Mary,** Mrs. Dahlstrom said. Her voice betrayed injured feelings. "Everyone I talked to thought the little dance Elaine did was delightful. And so did I." "You did?" Mrs. Nelson flung at her. "Maybe you're also delighted that you have to look at Clem Allen's daughter day ID and day out." "Please leave my father out of this," said Elaine. "I never objected to Elaine's family," Mrs. Dahlstrom said mildly. "Certainly not her father." Elaine couldn't believe she had heard correctly. This wasnt the real Mrs. Dahlstrom speaking. For some peculiar reason, the was baiting Mrs. Nelson, making her squirm. "Of course not Everybody knows you were crazy about Clem." Mrs. Nelson sneered. '.'Folks remember the wront, things." was Mrs. Dahl?trom'« qufctjMwer. "A* they saj now, Clem and I went out for laughs. We were never serious about one another." Elaine felt like her knees were about to cave in. - As quickly a* her Immense body would permit, Mrs. Nelson jumped up. "Well, I know her kind. Only a pretty face, A roving eye, too, I hear. You're not going to like living with her." Mrs. Dahlstrom looked up soberly and sympathetically at the enraged woman standing over her. "This is a big house, Mary," she said. Then, as though she were letting Mrs. Nelson in on a secret, she added, "And believe it or not, even old Rex, Torvald's old brown horse, likes her." Defeat raced across Mrs. Nelson's face. She stalked to the door. A second later, Elaine jumped at the vigor with which she slammed it SHADY PARKING Ole Hickory Inn 707 W. Chlckasawb* A FRAID to Strom's eyes, meet Mrs. Dahl- Elaine stood staring at the floor. Tom's mother couldn't have meant what she said. There was no house in all Wisconsin big enough for both of them. Elaine began to tremble. Then she heard Mrs. Dahlstrom sigh and say softly, "Why dont you have a cup of coffee with me, Lenny? I'm sure you havent had breakfast." There was a strange quality, a sort of huakt- ness. in the older woman's voice. And there was also a quality of understanding and a begging to be understood. Elaine raised her eyelids slowly and looked down into Mrs. Dahlstrom's eyes. The purple shadows were still there and she was smiling with a sort of timid tenderness. Remorse for all the mean and unjustified thoughts she had nursed along dug like fishhooks into Elaine's heart. Yet a silver stream of happiness began to flow through her. "Thank you." she said, To! enjoy a cup of coffee with you Ma." She turned away to hide the tears welling to he? eyes and added, "But first I must go find Tom I've something very mportsnt to tell him."* rat ira> SERVICE More Than 20 Years Training and Experience.
