Ermlntmde trotted along slightly In the rear. The trio paused midway In the Intersection to allow a trundling fnrnltnre Tan to pass. "I." gasped Ermlntrnde, unheard. "I got to go home.'* Perjured, she turned and fled. Mary-Frances, steered by Mr. De- Armoont. proceeded across the street. They had reached the Testl- hnle of Blandsen's Drug Store before Ermlntruda was missed, and then it was Mr. DeArmonnt who In- qulred. "Say -- Where's the other one? What's became"-- Mr. De- Armount errer felt bat slight obligations toward his verbs -- "of your girl friend?" "Her?" said Mary-Frances, and searched space bewilderingly empty of Ermlntmde. "Ill bet." said Mary- Frances, her woman's wits instantly sharpened by necessity, "that she Just happ-»ied to fhinfr of another engagement some place else." ' They went Into the drug: store, past. the counter, and back to one of the round tables In the cool- scented gloominess of the room. Earl DeArmount looked again at Mary-Frances, reconstructed hastily some, previously formed opinions. and ordered a small coke lemon flavoring. "A banana special." Mary Frances pushed the words through the cramp In her throat, "WeH." said Mr. DeArmout, "this Is sure fine." "Yes," said Mary-Frances. "How about going to the dance tonight after the show at the I.

They parted, but not forever, outside the drug store at five o'clock.
