stranger drives a big car is certainly
no guarantee of character."
He added that if adult drivers and
pedestrians would follow a similar
policy of refusing to trust strangers,
traffic accidents could be drastically
reduced. Since we have no way of
knowing who a driver is or what he
is like when meeting on the street or
highway, the best policy is to regard
them all with suspicion.

When Eleanor and I first moved up to Mt. Kisco, some of our
neighbors dropped by to pay their respects, but I didn’t encourage
these visits. The landed gentry of Westchester are nice enough
folk, but they don’t talk my lingo. Besides, I see no point in culti
vating people who think it’s smart to chase a fox.
But a little down the road from us live a couple I cultivate as often
as they'll have me. Their names are Fred and Jane Newell. I met them
through Eleanor two years ago, and I’ll never forget the first night we
had dinner at their house.
Jane answered the doorbell. She
was pretty all over, and I liked her
right away. "Excuse the peasant
skirt,” she said. "I have a baby
penciled in for the fall.”
Fred was in the living room
listening to the radio. He had the
tweedy look of the
good guy in the
stories. We talked
for a couple of
minutes before I
realized he was
blind. He told me
he was a writer,
and answered my

It was a fine dinner and a fine
evening. Jane carried her child as
if baby-having were some kind of
party. Around eleven o’clock, Fred
said to Jane, "Maybe the
would like ice cream.”
"Maybe they would,” said Jane,
"but we haven't any. I'll drive
down to tip* village and get some.”
"I'll go with you," I said, "just

ON THE WAY to the ice-cream
parlor I said, ‘‘Tell me something.
What makes you kids act as if you
had a gold mine in the cellar?”
Jane smiled. "I don't know. 1
guess we've been pretty lucky."
"Lucky!" I said, and then
"It's all right,” said Jane. "Of
course, it would be nicer if Fred
could see, but neither of us thinks
that's very important."
