It was a big old wooden house built in the days when the Waylands owned sawmills and labor was cheap and no house was complete without a few turrets, dadoes and similar ornamentation. Gavin was having a lot of scrollwork knocked off the veranda and having the oil furnace taken out and the former heating system put back. There was a lovely old garden and lawns sloping down to the river and some huge Manitoba I maples and a beautiful grove of pines. It was a lovely, quiet, rest- iful place and she liked it from Ithe start and felt that here she could be happy. ' They were going over the page- jproofs of Korean Karousel^ which had come in the morning's mail and which thrilled them both as iwith vast importance they made ! cabalistic signs learned from The Writer's and Artist's Year Book, wondering if the printer ever (really bothered with them. M "I don't think," said Gavin, in- Idicating > cute little mark to direct that a word be deleted, "that the printers need all thl«. The printers I've known were a pretty smart lot I think I'll jiwt |make my own signs—" I "Isn't it a grand feeling, Gavin —to see your book in print?" Lilith.was fondling the pages as if they were precious leaves from some immortal tomb. "I get the grandest thrill out of it." "Well, after all," he looked at Her smilingly, "It's our, yours and mine—our flrit baby, and begotten amidst lean aod heartbreak, as I recall." "Yes, 1 was confused about » lot of things—you And Giles and the rest of It I was almost afraid to undertate tta tab you'd offered m» to help you with the book. But I couldn't resist—** "Me or the book?" "Both of you. I loved tht way it worked out—Peg and Rowan acting as cupid's messengers and those lovely letters you would send me with each dollop of literature." "They helped 1 m p r o T • my style, darling. I dashed them off before my daily stint, just to jet the words flowing. A »ort of warm-up." "I always knew that writers were the world's biggest opportunists. Everything that comes along is grist for the mill." "Of course. You didn't ^hink I neglected to keep carbons of those billets doux, did you? I'll probably be able to work them into a novel." . "I never thought you would be so mercenary. Would you bare tht secrets of our hearts for all to read?" ?'Well—since you put it that way—not unless of course they offer a whopping big price and will take the movie rights." They laughed. • • • "PEG came to me," she said * after a while. "It made me very happy." "I thought she would. I dldnt send her, mind you—or even urge her. I know my Peg and if I'd put it up to her as a matter o( duty or noblesse oblige or anything like that she probably would have got her back up and refused to go near you," "She was very sweet. She had decided she would back out of the show, refuse to go on as Diana, but I showed her how wrong that was. She will play the part better now, I ttynk, and even ai It was she had nothing to worry about. I think ah* will bt a sensation." "You certainly five her a mart to shoot at," "That won't hurt her. That'r UM tioubl* with aU UMM ama- teur art movements—whether ita 'painting for fun 1 or 'writing for vanity' or 'acting for the ego'— they're all very well in their way and do no harm, but they accomplish so little when you consider the time and effort and money spent wi them. They—the peopl* in them, 1 mean—have such an unrealistic attitude towards what they're doing—writing, painting, acting. It infuriates me that they can have such • wrong conception of what they're trying to do. There's so little glory or glamor about the arts—" . "Hard work and heartbreak —* "That's it But everyone not on the inside seemj to think it'i a wonderful game—inspired, out- of-the-world, in the cloud-realmi of beauty. They've never shaken hands with the devil, that's sure. And you can count on the fingera of one hand the real writers, painters or actors who emerge from such cultural crusades. I heated too many tins of soup over a gas-ring, my man, and tried out for too many plays and rehearsed too long and saw too many flops to think there is much glamor about the stage." "You make me feel as if Fv» had it easy." "You worked. You've been through it, but you were lucky. You had the right stuff at the right time." • • • "T HOPE the adjudicator isn't ^quite so tough with them as I fear you'd be." "I have an idea he will b« tough enough. I met him a few times." "Garret. Kane—isn't that the lad? I met him too. Used to he a newspaperman. He worked in Toronto for a while, then he was dramatic critic on some paper In London. Tough bird, as I recall. Looked like a pug." "Was one. He was a professional boxer for a while." "So that is why, I suppose h« won't pull his punches—" "He was very kind to me when I played in Crosskeys, but usually he was rough on new actors. Slasher Kane, we called him. He made women . weep and strong men gnash their teeth and swear. He may he riiflcrcnt now."
