.Thursday, April 25, 1940 INDIAN VALLEY RECORD B LID L A I M 0 E MACRAE SMITH CO, WNU SERVICE SYNOPSIS Charming. wealthy Gabriel]a (Gay for Short) Graham, engaged to Todd Jane- Way. returns to a cabin in the Maine Woods accompanied by a friend, Kate Ol- Iver. The idea of a stay at the cabin oc- CUrred to her when she received a key to it . following the death of her godfather, Uncle John Lawrence. The two girls no- tice that someone is living in the cabin. Kate suspects that Gay knows the ldenti- try of the mysterious occupant. The mys- ery man returns. He is John Houghton, a Young doctor whom Gay had known in Previous years. Immediately aggressive, Gay asks him by what right he is in the cabin. His right she finds, is greater than her own. He too, possesses a key, bat more than that is heir to it from his Uncle John Gay's godfather. Gay is high handed ~vith him, and he states COurteously that he will leave. Looking at him in the doorway, her old feelings return. She knows that he is more neces- i "Mmm?" she hummed on a ris- ing inflection. "I asked you if you were bored." "Certainly not." "You weren't listening." "I was." "Don't be polite." He sat up to light a cigarette. "There's no rea- son why you should be interested. It must seem very dull and, as you said, unrewarding." "I can think of gayer subjects," she said, wanting to hurt him be- cause he had hurt her. "Such as--?" "Well, aquaplaning, for instance." "All right. Talk away. I'll listen." "As a penance?"

It was for in justification, she could talk to this she had come to the cabin, she him, tell him why she'd returned to thought, the contentment she felt her pleasure in the sun and wind the daylight hours of activity, the long nights of restful sleep. But Would she have stayed if John had gone? Would she be so contented now, lying warm and drowsy in the sun on the rocking float, if he Were not there in the cabin potter- ing with his test-tubes and micro- SCope in the room that had been Mrs. Dill's? But he wasn't there. At a cheer- ful hail from the shore Gay rolled Over and then sat up. He stood on the boat-landing in swimming trunks and jersey, an arm raised in salute. "Is the water cold?" he called. "Frigid. I have icicles in my ears." "Think I'll paddle over." "Sissy!" she taunted. "I swam." "You were showing off." He dipped his toes into the water and Withdrew them with a grimace. "Pure exhibitionism." "Superior stamina." "Oh, yes?" Thank heavens they'd gotten over being so terribly polite, she thought, Watching him take a shallow dive from the end of the'landing. The first day after she and Kate had arrived it had been pretty dreadful. They'd watched each other warily, Suspicious of the meaning behind every gesture, all defenses stoutly guarded. It was different now, Each day that passed brought them closer together in an impersonal compan- lonship, based on experiences shared, household chores squabbled the cabin-- "I can't talk about polo, either," he said, breaking a lengthening pause, "Or horse shows or yacht races or the Costume Ball at South- hampton." "Well," she said, presently, "I suppose we can talk about the weather." "Always." She turned her head to find him smiling at her, not the iron- ical smile which fostered hostilities, but a smile which wid .~md into his engaging grin. "I understand there's been a heat-wave in New York." "Idiot!" Gay laughed. They laughed together, amused friendly laughter which narrowed the dis- tance between them, laughter which held a trembling vibration more con. ciliating than words. "That's better." He offered her a cigarette. "I suspect your motives when you're polite." "When you're polite, I know very well what your motives are." "What?" His eyes met hers above the match that he held to her ciga- rette. "You're filled with disapproval." "I'm not." His smile softened the contradiction. "I'm filled with sup- pressed curiosity." "Scientific curiosity?" She sat back on the float, her arms around her knees. "No, purely human." He hesitat- ,ed, then asked, "Your experiment? Is it working out? Or have you bur- ied it under a pine tree?" "New York papers?" Gay scram- bled to the edge of the float. "Where did you get them?" "I sent for them," Kate said. "Is there--?" Gay asked quickly. Then, more deliberately, "What's the news?" "Your father sailed three days ago," Kate said in reply to Gay's question. "But he wasn't to have returned until--" "Exactly." Kate. She sat with compressed lips looking up at Gay through slightly narrowed eyes. "He missed the auc- tion in London," she said. "That's bad. That's really very bad.' Gay gave an exclamation, the landing. Gay remained silent, her eyes fixed upon the tiny waves disappearing in bright succession beneath the float. John's eyes rest- ed upon her profile. Moments passed in an estranging silence. "You needn't, you know," John said presently. She glanced at him questioningly. "Apologize," he said. "You can think of me as a landing-post, too." "I am, I suppose," she said, after His eyes turned to a moment. half dismay, half exasperated rage. "Aunt Flora probably cabled him," she said. "Your mother has not been idle," Kate reminded her grimly, "not to mention a varied assortment of rel- atives." "They're such an articulate fam- Ily." "Yes," Kate said dryly, "and, un- fortunately, cable rates are no de- terment." "But why couldn't they have wait- ed?" The humor that had bright- ened her voice was gone. Though he saw her only in profile, John knew that her eyes were dark and mutinous. "Why must they jump to conclusions?

I told both Mother and Aunt Flora in the notes I wrote them that I would return at the end of the week." His glance, in turn, questioned. "All the things you're thinking." She laughed, a clear brittle laugh, quickly stilled. "Spoiled, selfish, in- considerate." There was no humility in her voice. She was neither apologizing nor admitting. She seemed, John thought, to be taking some sort of perverse pride in the unadmirable qualities she listed. The sincere protest which sprang to his lips re- mained unspoken. Tenderness crys- tallized into antagonism. "If you are referring to the anx- iety you are probably causing at home," he said coolly, "I think I agree with you." "Of course," she said brightly. "What else could you think? I have everything, haven't I?" "Certainly, by any standards, you have a great deaL" "There's no sensible reason why I should run away less than a month before my wedding?" She did not look at him. Her eyes were again fixed upon the waves disappearing under the float. Color had flushed into the cheek that he saw in profile. Her hands were clasped so tightly about her knees that the knuckles showed white. "I can't answer that," John said. "I know nothing of the circum. stances." "Well, there isn't," she said. "No sensible reason. Todd is--splendid. I suppose we've been half in love with each other since I was six and he was nine." Only half in love? he wanted to ask. Instead, thoughtfully silent, in- creasingly astonished, he lit a cig- arette. "We're to be married at South- ampton in the Little Red Church on the Dunes." She spoke lightly, quickly, adding word to word as though she were building a house with cards which a breath, a too Impetuous touch would destroy. "It's Mother's show. You see Dad gave me my debutante party. Now she has her inning. It's a little complicated." She laughed again, that clear brittle laugh, quickly stilled. "Aunt Flora insists that she won't attend the receptiorz in my step-father's home. She will, though, if only to point a reproving moral." "Todd's father is giving us a boat for a wedding present," she went on as though there had been no break in the clear rippling stream of words. "We're sailing south. We'll leave the boat in Florida for the winter and bring her north next summer. The Janeways have a place at Palm Beach." "Will you actually sail?" John asked, his interest for the moment quite detached from Gay. (TO BE CONTINUED) Hy VIRGINIA VALE (Released by Western Newspaper Union.) JUDGE DUDLEY S. VAL- ENTINE of the Los An- geles Superior court conduct- ed an important trial recently --not in court, however, and the judge wore overalls in- stead of his judicial robes. The issue at stake wa whether or not he still re- tained his skill as a locomo- tive engineer. The scene was a movie location set, and the stars of "Torrid Zone" com- prised the jury. It seems that years ago the judge was a railway engineer, and when he learned thal an old-time locomotive would be run over its own private track on the movie location, the jurist accepted the invitation of the location man ager--also a former engineer--to put the train through its paces.
