HEAD TBIS FIRST:
A tender and thrilling romance ooj
covt n into the marriage of Bxjrd
Hamilton and Larry Browning. They
pent the night at the Blackstone, tn
Cincinnati, where Larry's friend were
giving a party in their honor. Larry a
friends, who had seemed so distln
fuishid a few hours before, had lost
some of their glamour. Byrd felt a
deep sympathy for Margy Duncan, who
had struggled along in poverty, rais
ing her three little children, without
her husband's love or co-operatiov.
Chet Sverson, a friendly sort of per
son, tried to help Byrd through a dif
ficult evening, while he wondered how
the spoed-loving Larry happened to
marrt this little puritan.
NOW UO ON WITH THE STORY)
THE racket was increasing.
A plane was playing some
where, and a victrola and a
radio had combined to drown it
out. The result was a cacophony
of discord that rent the air like
music suddenly gone mad. A
musician's nightmans! And ev-
gettlng mors driafcs.
- Suddenly -j Byrd found herself
alone."-. Sfca'i- realised there . cer
tainly, was' a deficiency, a certain
la ck, tn her : behavior, for every
man drifted away from her la
search! of more exciting fields f
It was all perfectly horrible,
and she decided to look up Larry
andT tell him that she wouldn't
stand it another moment.
A half doten people w-hom she
hadn't met at all were tearing
through the length or the apart
ments, playing some sort of game.
As far as she could understand
the meaning of It, they were try
ing to catch a little brunette with
the idea of removing part of her
"You said yon couldn't dance
In skirts, so you'll have to take
'em off!" shouted a young, silly-
looking man, racing pell-mell into
one room and out of another. He
motioned Byrd to join the chase
In another group, a girl had
reached the stage of the "crying
Jag" and was weeping on every

stop long enough to sustain her
woe. In one hand sue was car
rylng one shoe, hobbling along
on the stockinged foot
"I can't find it anywhere," she
blubbered. "Someone's thrown
It into the rubbish."
"What have you lost?" asked
Ttvrd kindlv. thinking that It
would help her.
"Why I've los m' shoe an'
no one'll hel' m fin' it," she
Just then Chet came up, and
Byrd and he joined in the gener
"She's lost her mind, too, I'm
thinking," he said to Byrd. "And
perhaps her happy home. Her
husband's furious with her. Told
her if she didn't sober up 'imme

What did she say to man
"She said she d never lorgive

he apologized far an' wide an

Joining Chet in laughter.
"Aren't they a scream when
they're like that?" he asked, wip
ing his eyes.
"Not at all!" said Byrd, with a
hard little edge to her voice.
"They're terrible! And they
start quarrels which I suppose
takes weeks to make up and all
"Yen, sometimes. That's my
experience, too.- But most of the
time they're Just funny, and try

"You'd have a little more fun,
too, if you drank along with us.

Byrd decided to change the
subject. Here was the first man
she had been able to talk to
Are you In Larry's office
too?" she asked.
"I'm working in a bank. First
National. Five years and I'm
not president yet!" He grinned
at Byrd amiably.
"I Just love banking myself.
You see. I worked two summers
In my father's bank in Jackson
ville. Father thinks I'm a born
Suddenly she heard low laugh
ter and Larry's voice, pleading,
tense, magnetic, at fier elbow.
The window had been opened
wide to relieve the fetid, tired
air, streaked with clgaret smoke,
and the mixed aroma of human
beings and heavy perfumes which
twined like ribbons of gauze
through the atmosphere. From
behind the heavy, brocaded hang-i
ings at the window came the low
hum of voices., now cajoling, now
teasing, now debating.

which was wide enough to make

She must warn him.
On some pretext, she must get
him out of there.
I'm going to take your ad

his name hesitatingly. "Is it
terrible for a married woman to
call a young man whom she has
Just met by his first name?"
"Sounds wonderful to me,
Byrd " he laughed.
"Well, I've changed my mind,
and I'll take a highball. Will
you get it for me?" Byrd smiled
at him, archly, but all the time
her thoughts were behind those
Yes, indeed, she'd be a good
sport, even at the risk of bring

but not to please Larry, was she
"A good sport " she mused
The voices behind the hang
ings had suddenly stopped. Then
India's nervous words jangled
against her ears.

wrong about her not drinking. I

Byrd slipped, inside the curtains.
India looked up at her. blankly,
then her face assumed a slightly
mocking expression. She con
tinued that low, rather remark-
strange, musical quality of an
oboe in it, with beautiful, minor
nuances runnlne up and down
like the chromatic scales
Byrd saw her for the first time
as a very attractive creature, one
of those slim. Cleopatra-like fig
ures, intensely alive and mobile,
with smoldering eyes that gave
nroof of the fire - which was
banked underneath the embers.
Her nose spread eager nostrils
over a red i mouth. And they
called her "Wildcat."
It suited I her. Vivacious,
stormy, listless, scornful, a hun
dred moods to tantalize her vic
tims. Byrd found herself star
ing at her openly.
She was so beautiful and so
Byrd suddenly realized that
she was ; standing there, white,
stricken, tongue-tied, unable to
tell them why she had entered
this way.i A Jealous wife they
were thinking. Her head was
whirling, and she was petrified
at the temerity, at her "nerve" in
rushing in upon them.
There was contempt and pity
in India's eyes.
Oh Larry!" Byrd suddenly
found her voice. She seized his
hands In hers. "I really wasn't
watching you, but I heard your
voices, and suddenly realized how
dangerous It was for ydi to sit
on this ledge with the window
Suddenly India s load, strident
