LjßstickGM^^i CHAPII.W I* THAT EVENING, Marcia found a special delivery letter from Vivian awaiting her. She tore It open eagerly, and scanned the one page hurriedly. Vivian was losing no time. She would be In New York Friday night— that was tomorrow night. Marcia eati mated—and could atay for ten days. She had obtained a two weeks’ leave of absence from the office She had not dared to give up her position until ah* had seen NeW York, and as certained If ahe could find work there. Marcia waa a darling for sug gesting that ahe might come and stay with her. She could scarcely wait to see her. So waa Marcia eager to see Vivian. Too bad. she thought, that Vivian was not here for the party tonight. But there would be others, she waa confident. Three beautiful girls and no parties? Impossible. In New York. She went out to tell Connie, hurrying down the hall toward the Deltz living room. Marcia had made arrange ments to have her breakfasts and dinners with them when she waa at home, for convenience, and because Mrs. Delta bad instated that there waa no reason why ahe shouldn't. It would be very little extra work for Helga. and would save Marcia much Inconvenience; also, tbe girls could come home from work together. Marcia rapped on the closed doors and turned the knob, calling "yoo too." as the entered. Already, she was a part of the household, and en joying It Immensely. “Good evening. Mrs. Deltz.“ ahe smiled, and added with a glad tons In her voice. “Viv ian’s coming, and will be here to morrow night." •“That's lovely." Mrs. Deltz com mented. “I'm so glad." Connie enthused. ■lsn't tt too bed she’s not here for tonight T’ That's what 1 was thinking, too. Well, we shall just have to scare up •otne more parties after she arrives." ahe laughed gayly. "Collect all the Invitations you can. tonight That's a shocking thing to say. Isn't It Mrs. Deltz r Mrs. Deltz laughed with her. "It would have been a generation ago. But It Is probably very mild now." While the girls were dressing for the party that aight, Mrs. Deltz hovered over them, obeying Marcia's Instructions for Connie's adornment and enjoying herself mors than she had In years. It brought back vivid memories of the past—the happy onee. Marcia thought she almost looked younger, and reflected that It was a pity such a woman had allowed tragedy to annihilate her. She was actually quite a young woman, as age was now regarded. "Just Imagine, mother!" Connie waa exclaiming for the dozenth time. "A pent-house party. Isn’t Marcia vweet to take me?" Mra. Deltz’s brow wrinkled slightly. II was not so easy to allow this lone sheltered fledgling to leave the nest She wished that chaperones were still the proper thing for young girls in society, and that she might accom pany them In that capacity. Rather, she guessed that more probably this pent-house was a bachelor apartment, and there would act be a married couple in the group. But she couldn’t change the modern world nor the LOCAL BAR TO NAME PITTMAN SUCCESSOR Members of the Henderson bar are to meet tonight to select a successor to the late Judge Thomas M. Pittman as its president. In advance of the meeting, there was no definite word today as to the man ho would be named to the leadership of the or ganization. HENDERSON, 7N. C.J DAILY DISPATCH. TUBSDAY, FEBRUARY 16 -1982 " way or » omul wno yearns rot youth and pleasure. Anti .“he trusted Mar cia. It was evident that Marcia hnd taken care of herself fr a long time, and she conceded that Connie might lie capable of the same things, if ahe were given a chance In the sordid experience of these past fif teen years, Mrs. Deltz had rented rooms to many g.rl*. but It had taken a girl like Mnrcle to open her eyes to Connie's world, and her lonely, un-' natural existence. If she did not ap- of her friendship with a girl like Marcia. Connla might not b« so confidential about the next friend ahe chose, and that one mlicht prove to l»e less worthy. Marcia arranged both Connie’s and her own coiffure as she had done so efTsctlvely a few evenings previously. Mrs. Deltz approved with mounting pleasure And when her daughter waa arrayed In the new gown and Its glamorous accessories, she was as much surprised over the effect os was Connie, herself. True, the white jacquette waa rabbit fur Instead of ermine, and the ruby and diamond braceleta were not genuine, but they created almost the same effect in their sparkling newness. Connie's ap pearance was even more striking than Marcia had anticipated. If ever a human being were transformed by clothes. Connie waa Her pale wist ful ness was now only an elusive quality that contrasted with the more daring effect of the costume Her hair glinted more golden, and her gray eyes ye re darker, adding mya tery and depth to her face. Connie stared at her Image In the long pier mirror which had reflected her mother’s beauty upon many Im portant occasions. Then she turned and clasped Marcia around tbe neck aa a happy child might have done “Oh, I never dreamed that it was pos sible for me to look like that!” Tonrs glistened on her turned-up eyelashes, and made her look even more childish Then she embraced her mother “And you. little mother, for buying me these gorgeoua thlnga Don’t you think I look wonderful, darling?” “Yes, Connie, you do —lovelier than I had dreamed that you could be.” she confessed. “Forgive me for hid ing you away with me In my wretchedness.” There were tears in her own eyes. "We both have much for which to thank Marcia. Re good, my dear, and deserve her for a friend. I am glad that you are dnd ing life, at .last" Marcia dismissed their gratitude with a happy chuckle. "Oh, if 1 have done anything for Connie, that Just make me happier. You see. I really had a selfish reason, after all. I wanted a chum, and one I could be proud oL But that's tne way it al ways works out, isn’t It? Whenever we give happiness to others. It brings happiness to us. Well, are we all ready? It's about time for our prince and coach to arrive," glancing at the clock. She wore the same green tulle gown, which DuMott had declared was a creation for her alone. Even had she been able to afford a new dress, there would have been no time to took for one; furthermore, no one who would be there had seen the dress except DuMott And he was the only one who would know that she could not afford a new dress like that every week. Besides, she was not in love with him. which madb a Gubernatorial Situation In State Still In Muddle from Page one.J torial pond. Neither Willis Smith nor General Cox would discuss the question today as to what action they expected to take. "I intend to wait a while before I make any announcement of any kind” Smith said. “For the time being. I have nothing to say,” said General iCox. Solicitor McNeill could not be reached for a statement. However, the report has persisted both yesterday and today that letters and messages of all kinds have been coming in to General Cox urging him to become a candidate now that Daniels definitely removed himself from the race/and that a great many of these messages are from those who heretofore have been for Daniels. It Is further being pointed out that Cox and Daniels have been close personal friends for many years, that their ideas are very similar on a great many questions. These facts are caus ing some to believe that Cox will get into the race and that if he does, it will be with the assurance that Daniels will support him. Very few of the supporters of the three announced candidates, however, believe that Cox or any one else will get into the fray and maintain that the present effort to reinflate the Cox boom is nothing more than wast ed energy in trying to pump up a badly worn out inner tube. A majority of the more impartial observers who believe the campaign will be limited to those now in It are inclined to think the campaign now seems to be between Ehringhaus and Fountain, with Ehringhaus ap parently leading in the Piedmont counties and with Fountain ahead in the eastern and far western counties. It is admitted, however, that Max well has developed some unusual strength in various localities lately and that he may cause Ehringhaus more trouble than Fountain. The Fountain followers appear te be con fident. but are more worried at Ehringhaus than at Maxwell.

"But not Gils Miss Deltz," Matcln Insisted. "Did you ever ree a ~v . dee transformation, Mr. Beauty-sent*"?" "I never did.” he admitted “Wom en are beyond understan m* g.

All he needed now was pleasure and beauty—enough of it to make him for get that he was on the dangerous side of forty, and skidding toward middle age. He also was show ing the world that he could be as generous aa it had been to him—reciprocity ges ture. Hl» name was Rennie Colmn»; and his age stepped#naek a notch when he was presented to Marcia and Connie by their escort, who added. "But you don’t need to look so hope ful. Bennie, because one of these dis coveries belongs to me. and tbe other is an extra for that fellow you hav* here who couldn't get his own girl.” “Oh. that's all right." laughed Ben nie.
