He was an undersized boy, pale-eyed ane with the shrewd sharp, face of a ferret. He was a fair student and gave little trouble. But Miss Johnson had never been able to warm up to him. She thought that, in addition to being person ally unattractive. Albert Symes was potentially sneaky although she had never caught him in an actual act of sneakiness. This day, she did. ,. Habitually Miss Johnson accompanied the class into the school yard for recess and remained there during the entire period. On this particular morning, with recess barely started, she remembered something she had wanted to do inside the building. She returned to her classroom . and stopped short on the threshold. . Albert Symes was bending OVCL her desk. The upper lefthand Irawer stood open. Albert Symes, usily and swiftly, pawed through ier handbag. "Albert!" The initial shock over, Miss Johnson's voice cracked like a whip. Albert Symes jerked, wheeled and dropped the bag back into the drawer, all in one startled motion. Then he stood twitching and uncertain, apprehension in his rather colorless eye*. Even is she advanced on quick, sharply-tapping feet, Miss John- ion knew what she was going to da. Corporal punishment was permitted eal/ ia extra* cue* But this appealed to her «t once as extreme. Redhanded, she ha< caught . . . Right there she stopped again within five feet of the desk ant the quaking Albert. Cora Johnson had just remembered. A horrible fear clutched at her. • • • A FTER that, momentarily Ignoring Albert Symes, she literally threw herself upon the handbag. One glance was enough. With a swift, almost-tigerish, twist 01 her body. Miss Johnson whirled As she did so, she snatched up a ruler. "You give them back to me this instant, you miserable little thief!" She advanced upon the boy, ruler raised. Her voice was the next thing to a screech. Albert Symes. indeed no one else, had ever seen this Miss Johnson before. A Miss Johnson with face dead-white, eyes blue- and-yellow slits, and nostrils flaring like those of an infuriated animal. Albert Symes' nerve, though sufficient for sneak thievery, was not proof.against this, He simply spun on his heel, and ran. He was out of th* door before Miss Johnson, distraught and blinded by rage, actually realized that he had gone. It took a moment to pull herself even slightly together. Then she hurried back to the school yard. Albert was not to be seen. In the time she had she searched (or him, in and out of the building, a sinking sensation at the pit of her stomach. The feeling—one of the most awful of her whole life—heightened as the March proved useless. When the bell ending recess rang, and Miss Johnson faced her elan ,o And Albert's seat vacant, she was on the verge of physical illness. She never knew precisely how ah* (oi Uiroucb Uu r*A tf IMt dreadful morning. Nor did she know precisely what kept her at her post, when every impulse urged rushing from the building and finding Albert Symes, all other considerations to th* contrary. Habit long ingrained? A sense of duty? Fear of higher authority? She had not the slightest idea. She only knew that she did stay there, eye! misty and mind « whirling whit* blank, confronting faces that seemed to look back at her out of some fantastic melange. Sh* heard her owa voice, asking questions, giving orders, uttering compliment and reproof, going through th* routine of the schoolroom. She heard voices replying. But none of H seemed real. It was as if, in broad daylight, she had become the central figure of a nightmare. • • • TJUHING the interval, Blled for ^ Cora Johnson with a kind of wracking suspense, three word! kept dinning like a gong against her brain. "The noon hour—th* noon hour—the noon hour!" Oh, if noon would only come! Then she might, she just might, b* able to do something. Before it was too late. Noon came at last, mercifully. Cool October air cleared her head a little. And she saw where she had mad* her mistake. If only, after discovering the Ion, she had approached Albert cart- fully, spoken gently, despite his palpable guilt. Then ih* could havt recovered her property in good time. But she'd lost her head, swooped upon the wretched child like a madwoman and naturally scared him to death Now here was no telling where Albert was or whether th* tat was in he flre. Hastening along street*, obliv- ous of the reds,-goldt, browns and mauvei of autumn overhead and underfoot, Miss Johnson could only hope. But the face el Albert Symes—shrewd, sharp »nd nquisitive-lcept appearing starkly in her mind, as if to warn ier that the hop* was a slender tf* •• CMMIM4) MONDAY NIGHT, JANUARY t 6:00 Evening Serenade 6:15 News Reporter 6:30 Slim Rhodes 6:45 Newa Caravan 7:00 Name That Tune 7:30 Voice of Firestone 8:00 Cisco Kid 8:30 Robert Montgomery " Badge 114 10:00 wrestling 10:30 News 10:40 Weather 10:45 Man vs. Crime 11:15 TV Theatre 15 Sign Off TUESDAY, JANUARY I 7:00 Today 7:25 News 7:30 Today 1:55 Newa 8:00 Today 8:25 News 8:30 Today 8:55 Morning- Meditation 9:00 Ding Dong School 9:30 Shopping; At Home 10:00 Hawkins Falls 10:15 3 Steps to Heaven 10:30 The Bennetts 10:45 Follow Your Heart 11:00 Bride & Groom 11:15 Storyland 11:30 Glamour Qlrl 12:00 News 12:15 Farm News 12:30 Channel Five Club 1:00 Homemakers Program 1:30 Photoquix 1:45 Music Shop 2:00 Kate Smith 3:00 Welcome Travelers 3:30 On Your Account 4:00 Atom Squad 4:15 Gabby Hayes 4:30 How,.y Doody 5:00 Captain Video 5:15 News 5:25 Weather 5:30 Superman 6:00 Evening Serenade 6:15 News Reporter 6:30 Dinah Shore 6:45 News Caravan 7:00 Milton Berle 8:00 Fireside Theatre 8:30 Circle Theatre 8:00 Judge for Yourself »:30 Victory At Sea 0:00 This Is Your Life 0:30 News 0:40 Weather 0:45 Dave Garroway 1:15 To Be Announced 1:45 Sign Off EXPERT WATER PUMP REPAIR Hubbard Hardware none MIS A 'romat DELIVERY SERVICE Phone 4507 linn: I a.m. to It e.m. with bellfery to 7 f.m.
