The door was being pulled the rest of the way open, It made a brushing sound as it scrapcu over the carpet. She peered-along the wall, straining her eyes in the gloom, and wailed again, After a moment she hoard the footsteps feeling their way cautiously out in the hall, _ J All she could seq;of the figure was its leas.

But her fear overcame the thought of thai friendship. Why had he been in her room all this time if he were her friend? He took another step forward and stopped again. Abruptly he turned and started dosvn the hall in Ihe opposite direction toward his own room — her mother's room. She could no longer see him, but she heard him in the distance quietly opening his door, pnd then closing it again. She thought he had gone inside, but she waited to see. She counted to a thousand, but he did not come back. She started crawling around the chair toward her room on her hands and knees. She had been right about the door. It stonrl wide open, She loo keel inside The whole wall at Ihe opposite end gave off its;gray gloom; she could' see the outline of the bed and the chairs and the curtains She knew that there was no one in the room. Just as she had been unable to keep herself from panicking before, now she was absolutely certain that the room was empty. She was shaking with fright. She caught sight of herself in the, mirror—the piglails, Ihe molal-, rimmed glasses, and under them: the round child's face pale and squeezed with terror. Her mother would have wanted her to be calm; she 'tried to take herself In hand. She should get back in bed. and go to sleep, She should never have waked up in the first place. But il she hadn't waked up, what would have happened to her by now She examined the chair to sec that il was securely pushed against iho door; and then she made herself go across- t|ie room i.nd lie down on the bed, Slio would try io go to sleep as her mother would have wanted liev to. But she would not turn out ihe light. She could sleep with it on, shining down in her eyes, but she could not, face that darkness again tonight. She did not think that she could ever go to sleep again, but she was so exhausted that her eyes wore closed almost as soon as she put her head on the pillow, It was Wednesday night now— no, Thursday morning, Last Friday had been the day of th,e funeral, the day her mother WHS buried., Friday was gone. TUnl whole week was gone. It, had be gun as such a huppy week.

She had walked out to Dr. Tres- love's car with him, saying, "You'll como back, won't you" wiping her eyes. "Of course 1 will, Often." She might have slept till noon, but Rex waked her up at 8:30. He begivn whining ) a-nd scratching' with his paws on the bathroom door. He .always slepjt in the bathroom; he had a rug there beside the shower, and a bowl of water, and it had been a rule of her mothers that he was to b-2 confined before Katherine went to bed, and let but the next morning. It was a happy arrangement. Hex liked his bed, and if Katli- fell lonely for him IB the night she could go to him i« the bathroom, wake him tip, rub hij eafs, talk id him* She wondered why Rex hadn't barked in the flight. Sut the/i sHe thought that il had all beeil <so quiet, really, that he ttilgnl Hot have heard it, and eveft if he Hnd heard, he knew Paul — his smell and the souhds He made — and he wouldn't have barked at hilil in the hous6.

He jumped out al her, whining with pleasure, danced around her, nuzzled her legs, lunged at her, reared Up and put his feel on her stomach. "You want out" He .barked again, and she went over to the glass panels. On Ihe wall beside them weie two but^ tons; she pushed the top one. The distant whirring began, then tho closer grind of machinery, and Ihe panels slid dellberalely bacti on tliemselvcs, the fresh wind blew in from the water, biliowins the curtains, and ficx dasiicd out across the lawn, barking, stop-' ping to sniff, and then barking again. No one was in sight on thu beach, ft was a beautiful day. iKa(thcfthe staU'/t.ed to get dressed. She was puzzled about, last night. None of It made any sense; and somewhere at Ihe back of her mind she was slill frightened. She could remember with perfect clarity the horrors ot the dark, which seemed far away now in the bright room. She- would have lo go lo breakfasl wilh the resl of 'Ihc household, and sit at the table wtlv Paul, pretending that nothing had happened, that she had not waked up, or at least that she had not recognized him in the darkness. Perhaps he would think that she had -been walking in her sleep. She would have to walch him, lo .be wary of everylhing he did or said. She would have to be clever, and never relax her suspicions. She did have some, sort of an advantage, she thought; she had seen him, but he had- not; really seen her. He did not know for certain what she had been dong. She heard voices Jn the hall outside her room; Paul and Aunt MHlicent were going in to breakfast. It was time for her to so. to. She opened the door and went out into the hall. The sun poured in the window at ".the end. The. big chair still stood near her door, but there was nothing about First Science Show in Series on Tonight § y NEW YOHK to the Mind," firsl in the season's Bell System science series Visible on the hoine screen tonight, is tin interesting examination ol the hiu man senses.

Everything in the house was white or light colored; the walls were while, the floors were pale, the whole house as very modern. ^Catherine's mother had said.: "It's our money, after all.
