THE JAGGED SCAR
By DONALD HUNTER
Tom ond his dad had always been pals, so much so that when "the
old man" suddenly became sullen and morose toward his son, Tom attrib­
uted it to his "growing up" and he began to find life almost unbearable.
| him. He called him the old m an
was with the other boys
not w ith any disrespect
j but he alw ays called him dad
around his m other.
"Oh, leave your father alone,
can’t you?” she said. And he went
aw ay sensing an even g reater
wrong.
Even little Rosem ary, the girl
he talked to shyly in the school
y ard som etim es, seemed to be
treatin g
him
different
lately.
"W h at's wrong with you?" sh e’d
ask right in the middle of his won­
dering what was wrong with the old
m an and his mom.
“Oh, nothing—nothing!” h t'd say
quickly. “ Why?”
"W ell, you don't talk near so
m uch an y m o re,” she’d say, "and
you seem so far aw a, like!”
He wondered if ju st not paying
any attention to her while he was
thinking about his dad and mom
m ade her think there was some-
Tow-Headed Boy with the
T HE
hair close cropped didn’t know i when he
his age,
w hat it was. The old m an spent
hours ju ft gazing off into space.
He sat on the top front porch step,
his cane betw een his knees, his
feet planted on the second step and
the cane end set on the bottom
one. With his hands crossed over
the cane head, the rig h t h ard
carefully covered the jagged scar
across the back of the left one.
O ther tim es, when the boy was
around, he alw ays seem ed busy
reading the new spaper. He kept it
folded so he could hold it with one
hand, the scarred hand concealed
in his lap.
Of course, he had never been
very talkative. Stoic, like the hill
people he cam e from, he never
mentioned his troubles. When he'd
chopped his hand with an ax out
in the back yard, he’d sneaked
through the kitchen hiding the m an­
gled bloody m em ber behind him
so the boy’s m other wouldn’t see.
The boy had stood in the front
room wide-eyed and anxious with
fear when the old m an saw him.
“ Don’t tell your m other, boy!”
he’d warned before he w ent into
the bedroom to te a r up an old sheet
for wrapping his hand.
But the boy’s m other had noticed.
She sensed the strange atm osphere,
the unusual actions. She’d followed
him into the bedroom, and the boy
had heard the old m an shushing
her, while she bawled him out for
hiding the thing. He kept saying
it was nothing—and afterw ards he
never talked, about it, never com ­
plained. He ju st never let anyone
see the jagged sc ar across the
back of his hand if he could help it.
Now, the old m an was with­
draw n; he couldn't get n ear him
anym ore, couldn't talk to him.
Once, he’d been able to get a kind
word out of the old m an. He’d
say, "T h at's good, T o m !” or,
"T h a t's not the way that ought to
be done, Son!” And though there
w eren’t very m any words between
them , they were the kind th a t m ade
the boy feel good, and know that
everything was all right.
Now, it was dllTerent. The old
m an didn’t seem to have tim e for
him. Fie d idn't w ant to take their
long silent walks together anym ore,
like he used to. And he didn’t move
around much. He even seem ed to
resen t the boy’s presence, like
when he'd stum bled that tim e in
the front room and caught himself
on h ij cane. He growled at the boy,
leaving him speechless and hurt.
But he w asn't old. not like G ram pa
—and—and the old m are down on
the farm .
Still, the last tim e he’d brought
his report card home from school,
happily expecting the old m an to
say, as he som etim es did, "T h at's
good, Son, good th a t you're getting
your learn in g !" and sm ile at him
quietly, he had n 't done it.
He'd only glanced at the card on
one side then turned it over and
said som ething that sounded like
"H um ph!" and handed It buck to
him shortly. The boy had worked
ex tra hard that last m onth to get
the grades up hoping the old m an
m ight break through to him again.
He couldn’t understand that short
"H um ph!"
There was som ething wrong, and
the boy wondered if it could be him.
His m other seem ed to act the sam e
way toward him Cut him otl short,
when he'd tried aw kw ardly to ask
her about how dad was treating

breath, his young chest swelling
quickly with the sh arp intake ol
air. He held it, stiffened his lip.
He would not cry. Crying w asn’t
grown up!
The thought struck him then that
m aybe th a t was the whole thing
th a t was wrong. He was growing
up! He w anted to turn dowm th at
thought rig h t aw ay. If this was
w hat it w as like, if this was grow ­
ing up—then he d id n 't w ant to be
big! He d id n 't w ant to be. It h u rt
too much.
Why couldn't it be like it used
to be with the old m an and him ?
But if th a t w as it—if it was Just
growing up—then it n ever would
be like th at again. And R osem ary
—she would n ever tre a t him the
sam e again, either. She knew, too!
Ju st getting big, you had to be
hard, cold, w ithout love, under­
standing, feeling or— T here was
som ething wrong In Just growing
up!
The boy sta rted to rub his
knuckle into his eye, but stopped.
A bleak chill was settling in his
h eart, as he w atched the old m an

Honorable H arry T rum an
Washington, D. C.
The glow of having your m itt
raised as the surprise w inner in a
knockdown and dragout fight is
probably beginning to fade now,
but I'll bet few A m ericans have
ever felt better. You surp rised a
lot of folks. You now stand out in
the picture as a sort of w onderm an
when only a short tim e ago so
m any people were w ondering if
you would quite do. You m ust have
set a new record for up-your-sleeve
laughter in the last couple of days.
What have you got th a t John L.
Sullivan, Man o' W ar and Dempsey
didn't have?
