Once a week Ann took herself to it picture show. It was an extravagance but her youth demand Eod some Small Joy. Often she sat Talco through the picture absorb ing Tho Beauty and Romance reluctant to step from the shimmering world of make believe Back Inlo her own drab Niche. Each sunday morn ing she put 15 cents in the collection plate at the neighbourhood Church.

It simply meant that seme uncomfortable apartment would House a and n girl instead of two girls. The Odd thing about it was the Pride and minis satisfaction with which Tho brides flaunted their wedding rings. Why was a wedding ring of Sui a vast import Lane Ann could not figure it out. She never been in love and had no intention Tex per menting with Tho a Mellon. Her mind ran along Ftp nuts of up ipos and achievement. Lisle int to the Man chatter of the two give she was horrified at her own weakness in having answered the personal. When it was nil said and done was she not employing the same meth ods As the girls who went to the Public dance Halls in search of companionship in spite of a Gully conscience she went to sleep with the thought of receiving n letter from lonely on the Morrow.
