Alison Van Dyke comes to

half-sister, following the death
of their mother. Kitty, in Ver

daughter. He explained that

came in shortly after Sam’s de

his visit, expressed annoyance.

Sam had intimated that
! something would have to be
jdone about Suzy and now Tere
sa was saying that something
would have to be done about
Sam. No doubt Suzy hadn’t
slept after one of Sam’s visits
because she’d had so much fun.
Alison said, “But with a
newspaper and a farm I don’t
suppose he always knows when
he can get away. He just comes
when he can. ’
bpeaking of Sam came so nat
urally. She wished she could go
on talking about him. thinking
aloud about him.
Teresa’s face closed as if a
shutter had neen drawn around
it. “We never talk aoout him
here, Alison. And I think it’s
best you know at the outset that
his name is never mentioned in
this house.”
Didn’t Suzy call him, “Dad
dy”? What did she call him if
she didn’t call him “Daddy”?
And what had precipitated Sam
and Teresa’s divorce? What
had happened to their marri
age? Who had been at fault?
Would these questions gather

I’d love to read to her after

mares. She’s sensitive and has
far too much imagination. But
she is such a darling, isn’t she?
I’m bringing her up far differ
ently from the way you and I
were brought up.” She drew in
her shoulders, a gesture of dis
taste. “How I loathed that Bo
hemianism, that living from
hand to mouth, that here today
and gone tomorrow attitude,
the total lack of security.”
“But you lived most of your
early life in Vermont with
Teresa closed her eyes mo
mentarily and said .vehemently,
“That was Bohemianism in re
verse! But Suzy will never live
either way. That’s why I work
so hard, to give her all the
things I didn’t have. She is my
whole world.”
“May I go up with you when
you go up to play with her?”
“Not until she knows you bet
ter. But of course you must nev
er ' disobey Winnie’s instruc
tions. I had a ghastly time find
ing the proper person. You’ve
had a long trip. Why don’t you
get into a warm tub and then
into bed with a book? Tomor
row I’ll have my secretary get
all the information you’ll want
about business schools? I’m
glad you don't want to waste
your time. College did a lot for
you. You’ve improved tremend
ously. You’re not in love with
anyone, are you?”
“I’m not quite sure yet.”
Teresa laughed. “You sound
as though you’re experimenting
with the idea.”
“I’m young and normal and
once or twice I thought I was
in love. But they didn’t wear
well. Like sand running out of
he hour glass. All my nice
noughts and feelings gone.”
Teresa leaned forward.
’What do you really want to do,
Alison? What do you want to
“I want to get married and
be a man’s wife.”
Teresa’s words were like an
explosion. “You want to be de
pendent upon a man all your
life? Like mother? She’s
a classic example of a woman
dependent upon men for her
happiness. You disappont me
with a statement like that. I
thought you had some a m -
Alison’s eyes were warm and
direct. “If either of mother’s
husbands had lived, she’d have
had a happy life. She loved
them both. I’m an ordinary girl,
Teresa. I just have to be me.
Is it so awful to admit you
want to fall in love and get
married? Are—are you in love
with anyone?”
The nerves in Teresa’s face
tightened. “Of course not. I’ve
put all of that out of my life
forever ... I have my child

Alison followed her into the
living room. In the doorway
Teresa paused and looked back.
For an instant she looked dis
armingly young and helpless
and appealing, the shutter re
moved from her face, her proud
defenses down, her face rinsed
with innocence.
“Do you find Sam attrac
tive?” she asked.
Alison looked up from the
magazine she had picked up
from the table. Her loose hair
trumbled about her face. The
truth, she thought. Why can’t I
tell the truth? The difference
between Teresa and me is still
appalling. She makes me feel
like something with the seams
unfinished. “I find him very at

Finally she shrugged eloquent

legal. He’s free.”

She went up the steps before
Alison could ask her if Edna
Castine and Philip Spencer
were still her friends. She want
ed to ask her sometime, too,
about their sister, Nicola. She
hadn’t forgotten her either, the
one who looked as if she cared
only for clothes and laughter
and men.

A week of living in the house
in Georgetown revealed to Ali
son several interesting facts.
First, there was Teresa’s Spar
tan existence. If Teresa had
been less striking and less de
sirable as a woman, then Ali
son would have better under
stood her sister’s total immer
sion in business. As it was it
seemed to her that much of
Teresa that would give pleasure
to herself as well as to others
was being wasted—or perhaps
dammed up. Teresa’s great vi
tality and her restlessness sug
gested, in fact, the latter. Dur
ing her evenings at home she
was constantly in motion — get

Fair BIuff Civic
Club Votes To
Sponsor Boy Scouts
FAIR BLUFF, Oct. 16. — The
Civitan club here voted to con
tinue their sponsorship of the Fair
Bluff Boy Scout troop at “Ladies
Night” meeting here Tuesday
The organization is now at
work in the financial drive
which is being conducted for
the Scouts throughout the south
central district.
The Civitans met in the new
$8,000 lunch room which was
erected during the past year as
a community house and school
The evening’s program con
sisted of a humorous address
by Willard G. Cole, editor of
The News Reporter of White
ville who mixed his stories
with an occasional observation,
reminding his audience that
while the smaller communities
did not have some of the ad
vantages of the larger cities,
they nevertheless possessed other
advantages of equal importance.
The speaker was introduced
by Dr. M. A. Waddell.

EG il
It’s so easy to prepare. Sunny-colored grains that cook white and fluffy every time.
The grains stand apart—"’Each grain salutes you.” Richer, fuller, nut-like flavor.
The new idea in rice that cre
ated so much interest among food
chemists and the Army’s food ex
perts early in the war, is now be
coming available at food stores
Fluffs Up—Looks Nicer
Leading chefs like it because it
fluffs up—looks nicer on the plate.
They have learned, too, that it
may be kept, either hot or cold,
without gumming up or sticking
to the pan. Naturally it goes fur
ther. You will like it for the same
good reasons.
White Magic in Cooking
The first thing you will notice
about Uncle Ben’s Converted Rice
is that the grains are sunny col
ored. But presto! In cooking, the
grains turn white and fluffy.
No Pot Watching
You don’t have to time Uncle Ben’s
Rice to the minute. If dinner is
delayed a little, you can still have
fine, fluffy, good-tasting rice.
Richer, Fuller Flavor
Another happy discovery about
Uncle Ben’s will be its flavor—a
delicate, nut-like taste—a richer,
fuller flavor than you have ever
known in rice. It’s a taste you
don’t tire of... a wonderful new
eating experience.
And best of all, you’ll find that
it’s a lot less trouble to cook Uncle
Ben’s Rice. You can forget about
the washing, rinsing and steam
ing that take extra time and re
quire extra utensils.
B Vitamins Saved
This is the product that The Read
er’s Digest called a “Revolution
in Rice.”
This is the product that the U. S.
Army Quartermaster Corps took
control of during the war because
of its high vitamin value and be
cause it kept better in any climate.
This is the product that nutri
tionists have been enthusiastic
about because our new patented
process (exclusive with Uncle
Ben’s) saves, in the rice kernel it
self, a high percentage of B vita
mins and other whole-grain
properties that are largely lost in
ordinary polished rice.
Try this grand-tasting new rice
—in your favorite rice dish—soon.
Scientifically improved long-grain polished rice—
vitamin permeated. The sunny-colored rice that cooks white.
