Miss Johnson ••'eontinu«d to try to b« gentle. "I'm waiting for an answer, Al; t»rt I want to know what your 'troubl* is." "Th«w ain't no trouble. I told •• you that already," h« said. Sud- idenly he looked up at her with ." «yes both insolent and confident. ' "But Ma says for me to tell her if you do anything to me. I'm '. goin' to tell her you grabbed me and hurt me." -. So that was H. Contrary to iWiss Johnson's supposition, Al- :'bert's mother had been foolish .• enough, at least to hint that Al" bert might be specially priv- ./lleged. Possibly Mrs. Symes had more than hinted. But evi- ••dently that had been enough and tiAlbert was trading on it. *' Miss Johnson made up her ,'imind in a flash. Much as she ab„ horred seeing Mrs. Symes, Al- !| ibert could not be allowed to go ^ alone to his mother carrying j.some fairy tale of mistreatment. J "Very well," Miss Johnson said ,: decisively, "we'll both tell her. ••. And right now." * Thus, once again, Miss John'_ son went to the little house where «* the flov/ers, ferns and potted "plants were at queer variance 4 with commonplace and tasteless i furnishings. .; This time she entered with her J' hand on Albert's arm. She had * not precisely marched him home * from the school, but she had re, fused to permit him to run ahead, .i pcrnaps to predispose his mother * in his favor. And Albert had walked along, i. protesting, His attitude had been * half-brazen, half-frightened, as " If .tit were less sure of his ground , now, but foresaw as yet no quaf- •' mires. ,'. a "Now what?" Mrs Symes demanded u ih« mti them at th« door. Her «7W darted from her son to bis teacher. Misi Cora Johnion imiled, which wa* not an easy thing for her to do in this place. "Albert and I have a little problem that we can't seem to solve," she said. "So! Well, wh«t'« he done?" "Suppose you tell your mother, Albert!" He shifted uneajdly. -I aint done nothin'. She—she went and yanked my chin." "That isn't quite true, Mrs. Symes," Miss Johnson explained. "H-m-m." The broad tallow face of Mrs. Symes darkened. "I don't like you putting your hands on him." She had a premonition that this discussion would be useless and momentarily ihe wondered why she had troubled to come here. But, actually, she had the answer to that. In addition to avoid being put in a false position by Albert, it was her duty to acquaint Mrs. Symes with her son's general backsliding. "Well," she said, "if Albert can't, or won't explain the situation, I'll try to. Do you want to talk in front of him?" She expected Albert'! dismissal. But Mrs. Symes only shrugged. "Why not? He's go' a right to hear what's said about him." "Very well." • • • TVtlSS JOHNSON did her best. "*• But fron the itart ihe thought her audience unsympathetic. Mrs. Symes was scarcely a better listener than Albert. Her eyes strayed; her foot tapped. She betrayed every evidence of boredom End Impatience. "I can't say," Mr». Symes said, at the end, "that 1 see what all the fuss I* about. Near ai 1 get it, he's looked out the window a few timr":. \vi-v<led around and iiutt do Ukt Hoot. WtU, all kids do things like that. Now it you'd told me he'd been throwing spitballs or smashing window! or fighting or—or something, I'd know what to do with him. But this looks like a mountain out of a molehill." "It means nothing, then," Misi Johnson asked sharply, "that he's gone from a fair student to a poor one? In just a few weeks?" Mrs. Symei turned upon the offender, who had visibly relaxed during the recital. "How about that, Albert?" •Aw," he kicked at the rug. "I'm studyin'. Only"—inspiration seemed to strike him—"she, she don't give me a chance." • • • "VTISS JOHNSON gasped. There was not a word of truth in the statement If anything,' fearing that prejudice would lead to unfairness, she had leaned over backward to be patient with Albert. "Maybe,** Mrs. Symes made a latent attempt at parental reproof. "Maybe not But, anyhow, you heard your teacher. She's not satisfied with you. So you'll improve, young man. right oft ... or I'll know the reason why. Now run on outside! We want to talk private a moment* Albert went "Now then," said Mrs. Symet, "just to please you, 111 give bin a good talklng-to after you've gone. But could be the kid's got something on his side. And X warned you once. 1 won't have you taking it out on him because of this.other business." Miss Johnson flushed "H that's all you can fay, Mrs, Symea, this has been a watte of time. I assure you, I've taken nothing out on Albert. But hH school work, which is the Important thing, has fallen off I thought you should know about it." "His school work was okay... before." "Well, it Isn't now." She tried to conceal her anger and disgust at the Implication. "And I've done all I can. From now on, it's up to Albert--and vou," (I* Bl CMUBM4) Prayers Answered SPARTANBURG, S.C. (/PJ— For years, the Hev. Ira Swanman prayed for a new auto. He also prayed for a new owner who would give his 1925 car proper care. Recently he was given a new machine. The right owner for his old one came along- a man who would give it the respect due its years and not drive it more more than 30 miles an hour. Swanman used it 28 years. It had 59,000 miles, its original leather, paint and spark plugs, and still got 19 miles to the gallon. It was only used on church business. "No one ever had a pleasure ride in It", he stressed. Bootleggers' Revenge ASHEVTLLE, N.C. (/P)—Two men charged with setting forest fires told authorities they were angry at revenue agents raiding stills in the area. More forest fires start on Sunday than on any other day of the week. An everyday wrist watch is made up of about 128 parts.
