Her father studes from her with an audible intake of his breath and a black flush. One se- cond later lock struck him in the face. Lynda did not know what he had done. She could not understand what he had said. She knew only the sick- ness of fright and shame---to be standing there alone in the excited shouting room while these beasts fought for her. Luckily Toni had no great desire ly. Lynda flushed. "I do not understand how you dared in the first place to take me to such a place as that one" She looked down at her own busy fingers, frowning.

"I will go back with you to that place tonight," she said, reaching for her tam. "No, It's too early. And you would miss Nick.. But I like your grit. I saw you had the makings. But I got you wrong at first. I admit. You've still got me guessing in lota of waFs. You belong, for all your Apache get- up, you belong to a world I've come close to forgetting.

A few days later Jocelyn wrote a note to Nick Sandal in which she told him she would he all alone on Thursday night and that she wanted him to come early and spend the ev- ening with her. There were some thngs, she wrote hime, that he must explain to her. Mary had been sent out early that Thursday night, so when the door- bell rang Jocelyn started forward to answer it herself. She stared unrecognizingly at the man who stood there in the hand- some empty little vedlle of tbo apartment buildiP. During that mo- ment, seeing him in outline for the hack of him, she was  I him.

Her imitation of other women in the eyes, tilted at the black-lMhed cor- nets, filled. "Do you think he will care? Does he like me ? Really? Enough to mat- ter?" Jock had begun to powl about the rcon like some restkss animal "I'm getting jealous of you, that's all. He's more my father than he is yours when it comes to practice.
