CURLEY, employed by
MR. AND MRS. PARKINSON,
owners of the Rancho Casolina.
Jean appears to have roused the
ROSITA, pretty little Mexican girl
who is in love with Curley.
* * *
YESTERDAY: Steve suggests to
Jean that she accept the Park
inson’s invitation to be the:r
house guest for a few weeks—to
find out for certain if they are
guilty of pro-Axis activity.
Regiments of white, puffy clouds
marched hurriedly southward
across a blue sky. The dew of
the night still clinging to the leaves
of tall eucalyptus madr them look
freshly varnished as Liey glisten
ed in the new-born sun. As Jean
headed the station wagon toward
Rancho Casolina, swept through
the quiet village and out to the
narrow road that wandered lei
surely around brown canyons and
through deep washes, she felt a
consuming sense of guilt take pos
session of her.
Intinctively her slim hands
tightened on the steering wheel.
Country or no country, it didn’t
seem exactly cricket to be accept
ing ht e Parkmsons’ hospitality
when she knew full well that she
was really going there under the
odious guise of a spy. Then Steve’s
firm words came back to her and
she remembered, too, the grim
urgency that rang in his voice,
“It’s the personal responsibility of
Every American citizen to do ev
erything in his power to defeat
the Axis.” Then had '’one on.
“I know it’s far from pleasant to
have to suspect and spy on friends,
but it’s one of the trials of war,
one’s duty to his country!”
A vision of Melvin rose in her
mind which loomed as a sign-post
pointing to the course she was to
take. With a auiek tightening of
her lull lips a slight accent to
the tilt of her firm chin she mut
te ed half aloud. “I’m going there
net to prove them guilty, but to
prove them innocent!” Somehow,
putting it that way softened the
trashness of her mission.
She had come to the part ct
the road that started its slight
rise as it wound up to the rancho.
On top of the rise she could see
the whiteness of the hacienda as
it lay sleeping in the sun. She
swung the car through the open
gate and into the courtyard.
Hearing the car stop, Mrs. Park
inson fluttered a hand at Jean
from a corner of the patio where
she was pruning her rose bushes.
Jean alighted quickly and started
toward her hostess.
“Welcome back to Kancho Caso
lina, dear,” she smiled. “It will
seem so good having a daughter
again—it has always been my se
cret sorrow, you know, that I
didn’t have one of my own.”
Jean laid her hand lightly on
Mrs. Parkinson’s shoulder and
I again felt the sting of guilt as she
! said, “You will never know' how
much it has meant to me, having
j someone mother me like mis.”
Jean glanced at her wrist watch
and looked up with surprise shin-!
ing from her eyes. “Oh! It’s past
eight already. I must dash back
to the office. lyi just take my
bag up and be off.”
The two women started toward :
the car * in the driveway, Mrs.
Parkinson’s arm caught through
Jean’s. “You look cool and fresh

The slight flusn on Jean’s cheeks
was becoming to her as she said, !
“Thanks.” Jean got her bag and
they walked from the sun-flooded
brilliance of the courtyard into the
cool shadows of the hacienda.
Jean probably never would have
glanced into the library as they
were walking through the hall if
she hadn’t suddenly heard foot
steps resound on the tile floor :n
startled asitation. Her ouick
glance caught Rosita poised in
front of a huge portrait, about to j
flee. She knew it by the startled
look in the girl's dark eyes, the 1
rigidness of her stance.
“Hello, there!” Jean called. Ro
sita mumbled something, half ran
from the room.
blight confusion seemed to en-:
velop Mrs. Parkinson for an in-:
stant as Jean turned inquiring eyes
toward her. Then she smiled at
Jean as she shook her head, say
ing, “Strange girl, Rosita. She

Jhan's eye caught the carved
clock on the mantlepiece. “Well,
as I said before, I must run along.
I’ll just set this bag in my room.
See you tonight.”
‘"By, dear, maybe we can do
some planning tonight for the
fiesta,” were Mrs. Parkinson’s
parting words as she turned her
steps toward the patio. She waved
her pruning shears as Jean whirl
ed the car out of the driveway
and down the sun-parched road. \
Some time after the dust from1
Jean’s car had settled back in the
road, Mr. Parkinson came from
his study to sit facing his wife in
the patio. The strong shafts of i
sunlight broke into a mottled pat
tern as they sifted through the
leaves of a giant live oak and fell
to the flagstones. Mr. Parkinson
sat a long time considering the
unlighted pipe that he twisted ner-1
vously in his hands. When h i s j
words finally came tney naa lost i
the ring of smooth self-assurance
that was so much a part of him.
“I sometimes wonder if we’re
not taking rather desperate chan

His wife’s eyes left the rosebush
to search his worried face.
"You're thinking of Curley?” she
"Has he done something?”
“No. It’s just that he has so
much ability. Seems strange he
wouldn’t be back in the States
making some of that big money
in a war plant. And it’s funny
they haven’t pulled his number
yet for the Army. Maybe he’s a
draft dodger.” He filled his pipe

slowly and lighted it. "He seem
ed awfully interested in the train

“But we checked on him, dear,”
Mrs. Parkinson protested.
“I know.” Parkinson followed
her swiftly, moving shears thought
fully. “I guess it’s just that I
haven’t been sleeping too well and
I’m imagining a lot of things.”
“To me, Curley is perfectly un
derstandable,” said Mrs. Parkin
son. “Just one of those romantic,
carefree youngsters, struck with
wanderlust and a definite allergy
for hard work and responsibility.
I can t see him at all in a 'var
plant or in the Army. In either
of them strict discipline must be
maintained and that wouldn’t
agree with Curley! I think we're
mighty fortunate to have found
him. He’s exactly what we need
Parkinson gave a sigh of relief.
‘‘All right,” he said. ‘‘Your
hunches on people are always
pretty sound. What do you think
about the girl?”
“Jean? I think she’s a darling.”
“But do you think,’ Parkinson
said quietly, “that we ought to
keep her here at the risk of mak
ing Rosita violent?’
Mrs. Parkinson pruned the last
rose branch and dropped her
shears and gloves into her wide
Mexican basket. Then she slipped
an arm through her husband’s and
paced slowly across the sun-fleck
ed patio beside him.
“It’s true that Rosita is terribly
iealous.” she admitted, “but I be
lieve she will take it out in drama
tizing. and if we keep an eye on
her. she can’t do anyone any
harm. Meanwhile, it looks to these
old eyes as though there was a
magnetic attraction between Jean
and Curley, in spite of Jean’s cool
poise. In which case, dear,” her
handsome hazel eyes twinkled with
significant purpose as she look
ed at her husband, "I don’t think
we should interfere with the course
of true love.”
As Mr. Parkinson returned her
gaze, an answering gleam came
into his own eyes.
“You know you may have some
thing there, Louise,” he said
thoughtfully. “In fact, at times
think it’s a lump of genius.”
