CHE heard her facer's chair push

wide-board floor, and then the
slow creak of a loose plank under
his heel as he shuffled nearer. The
door in front of her opened in-
ward. William Austin's lined face
.appeared in the narrow aperture.
"Dad, I know the rule about
applications for scholarship aid
being confidential. I've never
asked you to break it before, but
—please—I've. got to make sure
about one thing now, and nobody
but*you can tell me. Joel Conroy
didn't apply for a Dean s Award,
"Conroy?" For a quizzical mo-
ment the Dean searched her set
white face, as if he were looking
for something he was not quite
certain he could find in its expres-
sion. "Yes, Cammie.'' He nodded
slowly, then. "Yes. he did. It was

The hous. seemed tc be rock-
ing under Cam's feet as she stood
there. That would, indeed, be
since Beefy had assured his buddy
that a good strong personal root-
ing section would be behind him
in'the Dean's own household.
r^Ob It wasn't true. It couldn't
be irue. Not about Joel.

thing personal in your recom-

For so brief a time that It might
well have been a reflection of light
glancing across his bifocals, the
Dean's pale eyes seemed to warm
with amusement. "Well, now, I do
like the boy."
"But just b-because 'Joel and
"Would It hurt my lone off-
spring's feelings if Conroy got a
bit of extra money? I've been
over his finances and he really
needs it to stay on here. Even a

"I—I see," Cam said slowly.
"Then this award is vital to him?"
"I'd say that it meant a lot.
Now don't you fret about Conroy's
chances, honey. Your oki Dad will

/"•AM turned away from her fa-
^ tlier with a small and stran-
gling sound in her throat. She
realized as an isolated fact that
the den door closed softty behind
If it had nnt been true—what
Maurine had been saying on the
telephone—Joel surely would have
applied for such important schol-
ar-ship money much, much earlier?
Just yesterday! The words nad
become a tolling inside her. like
the toiling of disastrous bells.
"But I still won't believe it."
The merest whisper cf sound in
the still hallway told- her that she
nad spcUen the desperate thought
aloud. "If tt were true—why, then.
Joel never would have fought with
me las* night. He'd have wanted
to keep things pleasant. He'd have
been as sweet as honey."
She had not realized that Mau-
rine was bock in the shadowy em-
brace. of the stairwell, drawn
downward by the murmur of
voices at the study door; not until
her cousin's hesitant voice spoke
out of the dimness above her.
"Cammie—did you mean that
row Joel raised about Gary Mar-
lowe? I—1 have to tell you about
that. 1 don't want to, but I have
to. He—he Just staged that. Just
pretended to be raging mad about
it. So that this morning, when
he suddenly proposed, it would
look more genuine."
Cam's face twisted, and the leap
of green fire Into her eyes was so
visible that Maurine shrank back
against the railing. "How did you
even know Joel was here "last
night? Much less what we talked
"He told me himself, this after-
noon." . .

jXTAURINE shuddered back into
the protective gloom stil. fur-
ther, before she continued, timid
in the face of Cam's raw emotion.
"He was waiting for me after my
Bible History conference group,
Cammie, and he told me all about
it then. I— i almost hated him.
He must think I'm a perfectly
awful person to condone such a
mean plot. I—I think he even ex-
pected me to tell him how clcver
Cam stood there, a figure ot
stone. "1 still can't believe it."
"1 wouldn't, either," Maurine
answered, hurt and outrage twist-
ing each syllable from her. "He's
so handsome. And so exciting to
be with. While he was away with
the Army, he must have learned
how to make girls all around the
world believe whatever iie wanted
them to. I know I'd nave believed
him. tf it'd been me he was bent
on making a goose of. I'd have
believed every look ot those
dreamy blt-e eyes."
The thought of Joel's eyos cut
into Cam so deeply that she ac-
tually wvinced with pain. She had
to get away from here, away from
this house. This was where he
had asked her to marry him. She
couldn't just stand here, prac-
tically on the very spot where he
had stood bracing himself for that
breakfast interview with the Dean,
and let Maurine watch her heart
bleeding to death. She had to find
somewhere that she could be alone
until the world stopped rocking.
