It was a hanI battle trying t«

him say he needed her. Ties such

over her forehead and made a

he needed her most. That was
what she must remember. This

the admiration an honest, sincere,
kind man awakened in one.
Shelia stayed on until the day's
work ended. Pat forced herself
to act naturally, to hide the new
feeling of possessiveness toward
Tom. In an agony of remorse and
shame at the sensation that had
swept over her when she saw her
cousin with him. she invited She
lia home for dinner.
"You haven't been over for an
evening in a long while. Today's
a spree for you anyway, so have
dinner with us. Mom will be
pleased too. You can give her all
the family gossip."
• «s *
She was welcome, for Shelia's
chatter during the evening meal
covered Pat's own silence. Mrs.
McCiraw loved company, for as
her children grew up. their lives
became more complete and involv
ed with their own little groups.
"When their father was alive
things were never dull around
here." she said. "When he'd come
home he'd have some fine tales to
tell. Hut them were the old days
when the police in this town were
two-fisted men. The hoodlums
were afraid of the men on the
beat for they stood for no funny
business. When the boys would
act up the police would take them
by the scuff of thier necks and
bump their heads together—"
The boys loved to have their
mother reminisce. They laughed
at her. teased her. and egged her
on to tell more stories, but their
eyes grew tender when she told
them of young Dennis McGraw's
experience as a beat man.
"It's nice having Pat down at
the court." she told her niece.
"Once in a while she meets some
