I CHAITER 27 CAMILLA'S unshaken faith in Pttar and her quiet resignation to any opinion or ultimatum, had mol lified Mrs. Hoyt, somewhat. She did not disown her as a daughter or command her to leave the Hoyt household, but Camilla decided for herself that it would t>e the wiser course. She consulted with Hose fUbout renting a small apartment at nncai “I have enough to live on for a few weeks, and I'll surely And work Boon.” she explained. She had met Rose downtown for the lunch hour and they were facing each other across a little onyx-topped table In a tearoom, when she told Rose about marriage to Peter. "So you're married!" Itose had re proached her. “That's no way to to Into business—or marriage, either. You don't know what you are or what you want. Gee' kid. if I had your chance to be somelnxlv- talent like you've got and a swell educa tion—l wouldn't look at a man." "As soon as I get work. Hose. I'll help you go to night school for that Secretarial course." Camilla promised generously. “That's what I want all right. And you won't see me hitching up to drag a truck after me. just when 1 get In form, either. Single harness for me and a light, fancy load be hind that Is mostly myself." "You will forget all those resolu tions if you e\er fall In love. Hose.'" Camilla smiled kindly, with her own wisdom. Rose waved the suggestion aside with a flourish of her fork. “I don't believe In that kind of love any more than I believe there's a Santa Claus But soy. why do you want to Uve with me, now? Why don't you go and live with your husband, now that the secret Is out?” “Whether or not It's a secret, ha.s nothing to do with that. Peter and t agreed to live apart until he is able to take care of me. That may he for a long time yet.” "That's goofy. I'll say. Why wouldn't It l*e better for you to shuf fle your incomes and go fifty-fifty? Plenty of couples do that and man age to get along.” “And plenty of them don't. No. Rose, when a girl gives her best to her work for a salary and tries to keep house, she has to let down on one of them. Naturally, it's the housekeeping. As a wife, she falls: or at least, home becomes so un pleasant that the man and woman get to thinking It Is each other they hate. No. until Peter can take care of me. what he sees at me will bo my best. We shall only be together for pleasure. Just as If we were lovers. That way. we always shall — » » " «.

They're there, ready to be uj*ed whenever they're needed. Handy that way. all right" »For an Instant, Camilla resented her stater’s comparison, then she laughed, also. “Put It that wuy ir you wish. I‘|| add to the metaphor. The x.-caalopaJ chair Is not used so much as the old armchair and It stays newer looking und Is treated with more respect It Is the guest chair. That is what 1 shall be to Peter—his guest-wife." “Well, it's all right to be a guest and sit In a bright new occasional chair for an evening, out you sure do like to get home again and slouch down in the old armchair Uiat kndVvs every crook and turn of your dispo sition. even if It Is worn to threads on the arms where yours have rested when you’re tired.” Camilla was delighted with Rose's sudden burst of droll philosophy. How wise she was. In spite of her limited education and training. She would make a shrewd business woman without a doubt, and Camilla resolved that she would sacrifice if necessary, to assure her more train lug for the position of which she was capable. “Peter isn't going to be much con cerned with comfy armchairs or wives, either, for awhile." she con tlnued. "Right now, he is so busy that lie scarcely knows he has a wife. And that's what 111 have to <k>. to get work. I'll have to try harder, and perhaps just take any kind of work to get started. Happen to know of anything at all I could do?" “Not a thing. If I weren't the only file clerk at Dawson's, I'd be afraid of my own Job. Wherever two people are working at the same thing, there’s a possibility of elimination these day a You should be glad you have It easy, and forget about hunt ing for a Job that some other girl needs." “There's nothing fair about that ides. Anyone who has enough ambi tion and ability to work, has a right to. And 1 want to leave the Hoyts right away. I want to start being in dependent. and I’ll promise not to be a burden to you. Can't we look for a place on Saturday? Rents are lower now. and I've been noticing the food prices. It won't cost you any more than liviug at home and you've been wanting to leave. Kd and Henry can take care of the rest ail right, and you know Ma told you to do as you wished.” “Oh. sure. 1 do want to get away, and live more like you do. Camilla. I was only thinking about you. I'm afraid you won't like it. after being used to having everything so grand." "You just imagine it's grand, honey. You wouldn't think so if you could trade places.” "Well, l wish I could for awhile— that's all. I wouldn't be looking for trouble as you do. All right, then. I’ll be seein' you on Saturday. If you have time, you might look nround. If you see anything you like. It'll be okay with me. You know as well as I do what we can afford —you with nothing am) me with eighteen a week,” she shrugged. I’eter looked up from his work to discover Gus Matson standing in the doorway, grinning broadly. ~Oh. hello!” he exclaimed. "Come in." Gus sauntered Into the room. "Quite a surprise to sec me?” “Yeah. Where have you been all summer?” “Oh. around. Didn’t think you wanted to see me,” he dropped into a chair and glanced up surrepti tiously. “That’s all over,” Peter dismissed HENDERSON, (N.C„) DAILY DISPATCH WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 10,1932 the past. "Sorry you made a fool of yourself. ’ “Hasn’t a fellow a right to make iove to a girl if he wants to?" "Sure. But that's not what 1 mean, and you know it.” "Oh. well, ail's fair In—” “That was neither," Peter Inter rupted him sternly. ‘Oh. yeah? Gonna start boesin’ me again ?" i “I should say not. I wouldn't con* .shier the job again. Is that what you came here for, to offer me a chance to be your guardian again?” "No and yea Fact Is, I'm up against it. and I wondered If you could help n»e a little. Peter, you always were a good scout. I have some work promised after next month, but 1 gotta eat until then." 'While you finish your piece for the exhibit? It's the same with me.* - "Exhibit? Who said I was workUfff tor the exhibit?” "Aren't you?" surprised. "No. Are you?" "Why. yes—thought you had the same model." “Say. d you suppose I’m crazy enough to think 1 have a chance to win anything you entea?" "I don't know why not. Besides, It brings your work to the attention of the right people. That’s the rea son I'm entering. I'd like to win. of course, but 1 don't expect to." "Well, you win tire scholarship and go abroad, and that will give me a chance with your girl." slyly. "What girl?" "The rich little dame we quarreled over." “Camilla?” "Sure. Lord, she's a beauty, though.” "She s my wife." Peter announced calmly. • "What?” Gus shouted. His In credulity and consternation sur i*assed even Mra Hoyt's. “Tell me somethin' I can believe.” “Relieve it or not!” "When?" he demanded. "Don't you ever read the society column in the papers? We were mar ried the day after commencement, hut it was announced only last weak. We finally obtained the Hoyt bless ing after keeping it a secret as long as we could." “What a break for you! I guess I came to the right place for help, all right. You live over there In that palace?" "Not much! Neither will Camilla, after this week.” "You don't mean she's cornin' here to live with you, in tlm little room?” he ridiculed. "No. she wants to live with hei sister, until 1 get going. That was the arrangement from the first." "Oh. trying a new stunt, to solve the struggle problem of marriage?" "Just about that. It's Camilla’* idea, until 1 can afford to keep her. She's going to work, too.” "Sure, she thinks that's easy, but it won t last. Not for her. Occasional wire, eh?” he grinned. "Well. I have to hand it to you. That's the kind •it wife to have these days—one you don't have to take care of. But it might be dangerous to have a wife as beautiful as Camilla so free." Peters jaw closed rigidly. “That’ll do for you.” he said evenly, but the words were like a growl of warning before an angered dog leapa Giis stood up casually, but his eye watched Peter warily. “Well, con gratulations. anyway, and good tuck. I 11 run along now. But how about a loan of ten. just for a few weeks? 1 wouldn't ask you if I didn’t need it like the deuce.” “Sorry. Gus. but I haven’t ten to my name. I'm just managing to keep myself while T finish this work. After that, I hope to do better.** When Gus had gone. Peter recalled his denial of entering the exhibit, and wondered what it could mean. Had Sylvia misinformed him. or had Gus given up the idea after he started? Peter was puzzled.
