He opened the drawer of his table took out a Small Square of cloth and carefully cleaned his ruling pen. Then he shoved the stopper Imp his Ink bottle put his pen and triangles into the drawer and squinted at the tracing on his Board to make sure that the Ink was dry. Convinced he turned the Board Over to protect his work from dust swung around on his Stool and stepped Down. The stools at the other drawing boards were empty.

Just inside the front door Billy Seiple the office boy was sealing a stack of letters on he desk and Lorn paused for a moment to so a to him. Tom had occupied this same desk up until three months ago. Then much to his Delight he had succeeded in getting himself transferred to the drafting room. It had meant a Little More Money but important As that was it was secondary to the fact that it gave him some practical experience in the kind of work he loved.

His older brother Tim was a machinist in the Angus shop and he had heaved Tom get the office boy Job there. For several months Tom sat at the front door to receive visitors heaved the stenographers get out their mail and served As general errand boy and Handy Man.

Outside he saw the shop buildings windows gleaming with Light As he crossed a Spur of Railroad track and passed through the Gate toward the car line. Old John the watchman at the front Gate raised a hand to him. Old John had been moved out front when the new High fences had been built around the Plant after the War started. He was one of the company s oldest and most trusted employees. Just outside the Gate. Tom hesitated he knew his Mother would ask him if he had seen his brother Tim that Day and he had t had a free moment to go Man might be looking for him. But As he opened the door of the building the stranger stepped Forward he was a tall rather Loreign looking individual but he spoke Good English.

But Martha was Home again now and she and Tim had taken two Small rooms of their own so neither Tom nor his Mother saw so much of him. As Tom climbed off the Street car he was debating whether to spend the evening studying or take it off and see a movie.

Would you be angry i should say you would yet boys and girls often show just As Little consideration for men and women at the movies. The other night i had the misfortune to sit behind two girls with a hag of Candy. Every time they took a piece they rustled that paper until it sounded like the Clatter of machine guns and they made loud remarks about whether or not this piece looked better than that one. I suppose they weren to interested in the picture hut i was. Yet because of their annoying disturbance i enjoy it.
