She has left her socialite parents and the disappointed George Fox be hind. And when she lands at Pro pionoire she will find Terry and Bucky Corrigan , two very tough and self-confident young men, fight ing one of the tnost difficult engi neering jobs in the world. Fighting hard. Chapter 37 TRAVELING LIGHT THE coastwise steamer from the capital followed a long tropical shoreline, nosed Into the harbor proper, proceeding slowly under the direction of a native pilot, gingerly feeling the way through waters that 'recently had been infested with mines. • The long stolid phalanx of sun baked roofs spread out before her, coming right down to the long ship ping front with its warehouses and cranes and toffee chutes. When she landed at her berth, a slim girl dressed in tropical white with a gay touch of color in the form of a silken purple scarf about her throat, stepped ashore into an at mosphere of humming chutes, star ing sweating coffee portera, jabber ing hybrid tongues, and noisy steam ship cranes. A question mark rode with Allaire. It was queer to see a girl landing alone, queerer still to see that no body met her. White women of her type didn’t come to Propionoire un attached. This girl wore dark glasses against the glare of the sun, and if she felt strange and alone in that stunted smelly part of the world, she didn't show it. Her step was elastic and she moved quickly and surely across the dock toward the customs house, a steward carrying two-suit cases following her. Allaire West was traveling light this trip. Usually she had several trunks, also a maid. When she came out of the customs a flock of waterfront hack drivers be sieged her like chattering incompre hensible magpies, elbowing each other to shriek their terms, crowd ing up on her in an unwashed mob. But this cool-appearing Sehorita wasn't flustered. She walked calmly to a taxi and got iu. That settled everything. Whoever owned it could drive her. “Caf6 Nacional Com pan ia,” she said, and added to herself, “Atro cious Spanish, my dear.” BUT the driver understood. Nation al Coffee Company. He was a thin sallow man in soiled limp white ducks and a battered straw hat. His car was a creaking arrangement; stuffing bulged through gaps in the upholstery and the leather seat was sun-dried and cracked. Allaire had ridden in better equipages. She smiled slightly. But the car moved and that was enough. She was hers! All through the long air jaunt to the capital and the trip by steamer she had made no other plans beyond just getting here. Now she was here and a big ques tion mark rode with her through narrow streets of houses with iron balconies and little short pillars. She was glad when the car got out of that waterfront district and swept Into a wider cleaner avenue past parks and plazas of shrubbery trimmed in artistic design. The Latins would let their Indus tries go to rack and ruin while they flew at each other’s throats, but tlielr parks never suffered, even In Pro pionoire. That sight of green beauty TURKISH CENSUS REQUIRES ALL TO REMAIN AT HOME Mir \<morlii(ril l’m) WASHINGTON, Jan. 27.—The method of taking; the census in Turkey is probably the most ac curate of any recorded through out the world, consular reports here indicate. On the census day. all the in habitants o: Turkey are required i to iemain in their homes from 5 steadied and reassured her some what It was something familiar in the midst of grey squalid confusion. She alighted before the National Coffee Company office. It was the only place she had to start They were Terry Willett’s employers. The native clerk stared at her in amazement and so did Drake, the tall Englishman who was manager of the branch office. “Willett?” he repeated. “Why, he’s been in town the past few days, but he’s leaving right away. Going up the river to work." “Where can I find him?” she asked quickly. Drake rubbed his long chin with bony fingers. Where in the name of all that’s holy had Willett ever met a girl like this? She seemed very anxious to find that man who’d come back from the States not saying much. “He might be in the Santini Hotel. If you’d like, I’ll take you up there.” “Thank you,” she said gratefully. The Santini was no luxurious-look ing hostelry. It was a two-storied white stone building with walls at least a foot thick and ornamented with those omnipresent little iron balconies. Its bar was the most famous thing about it, and a smell of beer and liquor seemed impregnated in the lobby, although a few potte<| palms strove valiantly to keep up appear ances. She ascended the stairs with her taciturn companion, walked down a corridor and stopped before a door. Drake knocked. “Come in!” roared two voices in unison on the other side. “There's a lady here to see you, Terry,” called Drase. A SLIM girl in tropical white with ** a purple scarf about her throat stood on the threshold at Drake’s side. Corrigan's feet came off the table with a crash. “Holy Moses!” he murmured, dazed. There was another crash as a glass fell from Willett’s fingers, which were suddenly like those of a small child’s. He stared incredulously, the tan ebbing from his cheeks and the sound of many waterfalls in his ears. If his father had stood there he couldn’t have been much qmre flab bergasted. Drake excused hims'erf. Corrigan looked from the girl to and back to the girl again. 't f ! jLUI f “Aren't you going to ask me m,‘ Terry?” she said, a little trem ulously. ' . ? -i He didn’t safc anything for-'aM#- ment. He couldn’t. Willett was usu ally quick to recover from a surprise, recover and adopt a course of action with the speed and snap of a crack ing whip. But this was something that beat any surprise he'd ever received In his young life. Surprise! There had to be another word for it. “Wait a minute,” said Corrigan, “I’m in the way here.” He got up and walked to the door, stopping to beam at the girl. “I’m Corrigan, that lug’s partner,” he announced, “and If you get tired of looking for him, start looking for me.” He grinned and went out, closing the door behind him. And still Wil lett was silent. “Oh, please say something, Terry,” the girl begged. “1 know you’re sur prised—but couldn’t you act as If you liked it?” (Copyright, 1955, by David Garth) Allaire talks to a chap named Corrigan, tomorrow. a. m. until a signal gun announces the end of the recording.
