Time seemed merely to blend autumn into winter, with no change in the status quo. Neither was there » change when, at long last, winter released its grip. And spring, with crocuses and embryonic tree- buddings, signified its presence. Trie world at large might have felt a sense of uplift, a resurgence of life and hope, from these n a t u r a . manifestations.

Bi "Happy spring, bright and gay 1 '—winter now has passed away, Cora's pupils sang.

Ill have to have a little something, to tide me over." "B-but, Mrs. Byrnes, I'm accustomed to . " She stopped. What wa« the use?

He walked up to her desk rather slowly, extending a big, brown hand, "Well, Cora, Tm wondering whether I'm going to have to introduce myself?" Miss Johnson noted with satisfaction that old Cripps had gone back to his mopping. His withdrawal helped her regain poise. "I—1 don't think so," she said. "You're — well, you're Adrian." She gave him her hand. "It's so nice really to meet you. at last And what a pleasant surprise!" • o • ADRIAN KAYE regarded Misi •** Cora Johnson quietly and steadily.
