The pillared sorority house vi brated with laughter and music. The twenty new pledges who had received coveted white rib bon rosettes were preening and beaming and ostentatiously glan cing into every mirror they danced past. The dance commit tee was bustling about looking official and slightly smug. Cam was reasonably free of responsibility. Once she had been shown off prominently in the re ceiving line for an hour, so that each of the new sisters - to - be might be suitably impress ed with the beauty of the Dean's popular daughter, there real ly was nothing beyond the • You'll get more real good from running water at less cost per gallon with one of these NEW Deming Jet Pumps or Complete Water Systems.

And she didn't feel like donc ing She didn't feel like parrying the wise cracks of any of the hopeful stags who had been de vising schemes to kidnap her from the line. The constant tap tap-tap of the music had begun to twang at her nerves in a fash ion which signaled a bad head ache ahead, unless she were to run out on the dance for at least a few moments of quiet — for' at least one gulp of cool air. It was such a sound idea that, presently, she acted upon it. No one was noticing when she slipped through the tall French window and out onto the terrace. Maurine laughed with such flattering appreciation that the sophomore Delta Delt with whom she was dancing decided instantly he was going to spend more long winter evenings in the Eta Mu parlor. With her chin on his shoulder, Maurine had discovered, she didn’t have to pay nearly such close attention to what he was saying. He couldn’t watch her eyes. They were free to fasten themselves on the big gilt mir ror over the sorority fireplace, in anticipation of the headv mo ments when their spinning re-; flections would come within its field of reflection and she could see how dainti'v the white rib bon rosette fluffed out on her own shoulder. She’d made it! j No more uncertainty no more envy, no more torture! She was an Eta Mu! It meant that she could go all out in her campaign for Joel. It meant that she didn’t need Camay more. It meant that it wasn’t going to be necessary to pretend tha* she didn’t really take seriously her chance of making Joel ask her to marry him. | Between dances, she slipped] out to the sunporch. She thought she remembered having seen a payphone perched against the wall. The glassed-in room thrust off from the house at an angle which, luckily, made it as re mote as possible from the dan cers in the handsome double parlor facing the street. It was quiet back here. Nobody to list-1 en in, once she had gotten ; through to Washington. “The Blair residence," a voice she knew was saying, presently. “Williams? It’s Miss Maurine. I’m calling from Cartersville.” “Oh, yes, Miss,’’ her father’s butler replied. “The Senator —” “I don’t want Father. Tell Nick Sutton I’m on the phone.” The staff at David Blair’s town house on the correct ly fashionable fringe of George town knew better than to keep her waiting. Even Nick Sutton, who as a senatorial secretary was not without his own minor position, appeared at the far end of the line so promptly that Aladdin might have summoned him with the rubbing of a lamp. ‘Maurine? ” “Nicky, darling!” Her voice was all spun enchantment, now. Even one who in his day had heard it ring other changes —of pettishness, or shrill anger of deliberate arrogance — could not remain immune to it for long. Sutton was more than a little in love with his superior’s daughter. “Oh, Nicky, I’ve been missing you so! It’s simply dull as death up here. Would you believe it, I haven’t gone ut a single even ing since — Nicky, that was quite the sweetest farewell party you gave for me!” “If you were asking a ques Gar tyen 9s d TYlighty <;ood SWOIKD For VOI * It’ll slash right through the mound of unpaid bills and debts and with one clean sweep, elimi nate them all.

[Why haven’t you written, Mau rine?” “I’ve meant to, darling, hon estly I have. But it’s been just one thing after another. Classes and being nice to Uncle Wil liam’s stuffy old faculty friends. Professors are even duller than politicians.” A soft, throaty little laugh like a purr reached out toward him. “Nick—I’ve called to ask you the most tremendous favor. I need help, Nicky.” "Do I rob a bank this time, or plant a bomb in the White House?” Her dark eyes were gleaming as they looked down at the checkered sun-porch at her feet. The shadow of her stretch ed long across it. “Now, Nicky! ! It’s nothing drastic. Have I ever gotten you into real trouble?” j Before he could answer that, she hurried lightly on. “Remember a map of Daddy’s I just happen ed to come across, a week be fore I left?
