Slio lislejied intently—straining her neck and shoulders—-but still without opening her oyp.s. Thirty feet away, behind the sliding wall of glass 'panels, she could hear the waves rushing on the bean. There .were sounds in her own room, loo, she could hear herself 'breathiiiK. sin; oukl bone lipr watch liking on the Uvble by the bed, and the blood pounding in hur ears, and in spite oC lying quietly, carefully, Ihere was n 1'aint rustle against tho sheet, Someone was in the room with no time t ohidc, or time to run away. But she could not make her arm move. She was too frightened; she did not want to know who was in the room. She moved her eyes slowly away from the w i n d o s and looked straight up toward the welling. Tho darkness •' was impenetrable; il had "no.dimensions, no depth; she might-'as* vyell have been out under the open sky. But she tried hard to focus her gaze and sue only n tew inches above her face- If there was anything that close — evcij an'- r outline—she would -.be able 19 see it, 'but as it got farther .away: it'-would blur and run oft' like water colors, an agony of terror.

But if she ran out the door, she would have lo go through that black pit to get there. That would be the \yorst of all, feeling her way along inch toy inch, trying lo make no noise, thinking at every second thai she might bump into whoever was there. But she could not run toward the glasssvall and Ihc beach either. She would be silhouetted against the gray square; and anyway she could not get out quickly enough. She would have to press 1he button and wait while the machinery in the basement 'began lo hum, and the mechanism caught, "and the panels slid back on top of each other, By the lime she had waited for all that, they would have caught up svith her, grabbed her, and ... •, If only she could sit up In bed and scream for her mother! Buther mother was gone. Everything was gone. She had walked down and seen' the last of her mother, the living room five clays ago wearing her pink lace dress, lying slift and painted in her casket with little peach-colored velvui tufts rolling up on each side of her. And Dr. Treslove had stood up and talked about her, and then they had all gollen into cars and gone to the cemetery. Everyone had said, "You're a 'big girl, You're 12 years old, aren't you? Your mother would want you to toe brave." But she wasn't 12 years old yot. She wouldnl be 42 till next month. She would have to take care of herself, She rolled her eyes back across the room to the windows Ehi- had held her breath for a limy time, and was just readzto let it out when she heard some- at Ihc fool of thcbcd. It very soft, but very distinct in he stillness, fihc could not tell exactly what il was, and she lay ptiraly/od w ailing to hear H flS'im But il was ndl repealed* It had been a furry sound, skin brushing againsl fabric, or an uncertain fool feeling Its Way, along the carpet. There were people in the room with her, people who were tnoV' ing cautiously along at the foot of her bed. She had to get out of the room. If she lay. there any longer, She would die. She knew she svould. She would have to cross that blaek gulf full of horrors to get to the door, but she would force herself to do it. She began to move very slowly and carefully. She pulled, one hand out from under the sheet and stretched it toward the table. Frightened as she was. ishe did not dare lo go out without her glasses. She knew -that when she touched them and started to pick them up she must not allow them to make any sound; they would know at once that she was getting away. Her fingers touched the edge of the Uijle and crawled slowly across Ihe top. She felt the base of the lamp. Her wrist brushed against the edge of her watch, and for an instant she thought she was going lo knock it off on the floor. Even falling on the carpet it would be audible. But it did not fall. Then she found the glasses. They were lying upside down with the lenses against the table top. If she picked them up straight they would not open or make a. noise until she was ready. She slid them silently toward her, the glass rubbing likp oil Qn the table, until she could hold them clearer, more concrete before her hand, opened the stems one at a time, and put the glasses on. The darkness suddenly became clearer. Tnore concrete befor hr eyes. The lines of .the windows stood out plainly across the room, and even though the darkness was as complete as ever, she felt reassured; if there were anything to see, she could see it. There was silence all around her—only hr breathing, and the ticking of her watch, and the waves break ing on the toeach. •*• The Ashley C-fand Jury yesterday recommended that the tjliorum court appropriate Wohey to pay dues of County Judge W.T. Mlggin- bbtham in the Arkansas County Judges Assn, The recommendation was cnh« lained in a grand jury report on an invesligatiotti requested by Higginbotham himself, of conduct oi dounty business by the judge's office. The report said the Jtlry Investigated all phases of county business and foiwd the judge's office was conducted "in an cjf cmpiary manner," Higglnbolham requested the in vcstigation after a taxpayer's suit was filed in Ashley Chancery Court challenging his right to pay $flO annual dues to the judges' association with county money. The suit has not been set lot trial. The report said the jury felt Higginbotham "was justified" in paying such dues with public funds 'She propped her elbows on either side and pushed herself until she could raise her head out of the pillow without making it crinkle, She started to fold the sheet back, lifting it very slowly so that it would make no 'betray- sound; and then she thought that If they had moved around to the side of the bed, everything she did would be outlined againsl the grayness. The sheet being lifted would make a black bump against the windows, so she let i down again slowly and tocgan inching her way across the bee under it. Finally she came to the edge dropped her feet over until hci toes felt the carpet under them and then she satup straight. She when she stood up, and she knew the springs would squeak nerved herself for it. She decided that when the noise came she would jump ou away from the bed, so that if thcj lunged at her they might mis her. She stood up abruptly, anc leapt out into the room. The bed did squeak; and tin instant she heard that sound ev crything else was suddenly gon> from her mind. The bravery sh< was supposed to toe shosving — which she had just found — evapo rated in a tide of panic tha drained her strength out of her There was an instant's tinglinj all over her (body. She wanted desperately to be able to creej stealthily across the room as sh had planned, or even to do any thing except stand here waiting And as if that urgent wish .re teased her, she was aware—aftn she had already started—that slv was running across the room to ward the door, fr e n z i e d as trapped mouse, scurrying crock edly over the carpet, making little pattering noise .with, he bare feet. The hall was a little liglHc than the bedroom had been, and with her glasses on she glanced quickly around it. She could 'run to Aunt Miilicent's room, but tfhe would be asleep, and her room was down the length of the house/ She would be caught before she got that-far. There was a window at the end of the hall, a paler gray than the one in her bedroom had ,bcen, and in the dim glow she saw the big, modern, ornamental chair.
