since he came home, a suspicion
that things wer not goini? quite

"If I Wanted To."
. Of course I knew. Dicky felt to
real reason for anxiety. If he
had chosen to go to the city and
renew his acquaintance with the
art editors he had known. before
entering the service lie would no

he came home to remind bis
former associates that he was
once more in the illustrating

concerning his work.

He smiled at me lovingly, and
I felt a lessening of the weight
which had settled on my heart
with the relelation of Edith Fair

"Now. Alfred." his mother in
terposed in a shocked tone. "You
know you never went to the office
until day before yesterday."
"Well, if that isn't almost a
week. I don't know what is," her
son returned unabashed.
"Thank you Mrs. Durkee,"
Dicky rose and made her a gran
diose salutation. "I am glad to
pee that you never let maternal
prejudice cloud your sense of jus
tice." "You'll have a good, swift
right-hander cloud your senses if
you don't shut up and listen to
me," Alfred Durkee said wrath
fully. "I've got one of the finest
little jobs over at the house you
ever laid your eyes on. If you
could ever get the sleep out of
your eyes I think you'd be inter
ested." "Shoot." Dicky said laconically,
settling himself in an exaggerat
edly indolent attitude in his chair.
Hut I saw that h was keenly at
tentive underneath his r careless
mask, saw that Alfred 'Durkee
knew it also.
"It's a new serial by W ,
Mr. Durkee began, naming one of
the biggest American authors,
"the first thing he's done in
three years. It's a hackneyed
thing, but you know he could take
the multiplication table and leave
you at the end of each chapter
with your tongue banging out."
Dicky grunted an assent, pulled
lazily at his pipe.
"The heroine is a sheltered,
old-style southern girl, breaks
loose, goes to Prance as a war
worker, then after war tries to
fit. In old southern town, marry
man she used to be engaged to
all that sort of rot. There isn't
much war In it. in fact, he's cut
out a lot of stuff, and written in
scads of new dope since the armis
tice, but It's a crackerjack. I
can't remember all the side lines
he has in it. But here's the
cream of the johe.
"You remember the drawings
you made tor that other southern
story, the one Edith Fairfax
posed tor? Well, it seems those
took W's eye, and he wants the
same artist, and If possible the
same model ror nls own little
brain child. What do you say?"
Dicky took his pipe from his
mouth, looked at It reflectively.
"Wonder if Mlsi Fairfax would
pose," he said. "It would be the
devil of a job getting another
model just like her. But trot
over the manuscript anyway. I'll
take a look at it and let you know
what I decide."

The president's visit to the
senate chamber followed Immedi

dress. He went firt to the pres
ident's room and was escorted by
senators to the rostrum to make
his first communication to con-giess.
Submission of the cabinet selec

planation, in which President
Harding suggested that good re
lations between executive and leg-
islaxire branches might be ce
mented by the element of person
al contact. He read the names of
the men selected for his official
circle of counsellors. Within 20

and Mrs. Harding had luncheon
with the immediate members of
their families, including Dr. Geo.

Mrs. Coolidge also wers guests.
Afterward the Hardings helped
open the White House to the folk?
It was late before Mr. Harding
made his first visit to his offices
and issued the order opening the
White House grounds to the pub
lic. In doing so, he fulfilled a
prophecy of Mrs. Harding, who
declared on election night that
one of the first acts of the next
administration would be to "take
the polic?iden away from the
White House gates."

which greeted it had subsided, he
