The CATHOLIC NORTHWEST PROGRESS Page Thirty-Five took his boat, just for fun, do you T My father trusts mew "My father gives me five dollars a week for my allowance," Dave offered. - "I'd send you half ef mine," Bert see- ended. "I get five dollars, too." He had never had frye dollars of his own. 'nk how much fun it would be to have money coming all year, money that .you could spend any way you wanted to.'" Dave's voice roused him out of his deep thoughts, and he looked from one boy's face to the other. He could sea the shrewd speculation in their eyes as they watched him, trying to see whether he would do as they wanted. , That look in their eyes made him tight- en his lips, while red flashes of anger hid their faces from hir "Do you think I'd lie to my father for a few lousy dollars?" His voice choked @ in his throat. "That's a higher price than l'd pay for the whole city of New York," he said scornfully. Then Dave began: "Your father will believe you. He'll know you cams out to help us. But what are we going to tell our father?" 'What's your problem," Slim returned quickly, but his anger cooled when he watched the boys.

They. shuffled their feet nerv- ously on the bottom of the boat. "Here's my father coming!" Slim ex- claimed, as the sound of a boat grew clearer. There were two men in the boat, coming toward them. He looked toward the brothers. They looked scared. They could not have much chance to be pals with their father, as he was, or they would never look likethat. SuddenIy words came from his mouth without any planning from him. 'I don't want your money," Slim said quickly as the boat drew nearer, '"out I won't tell my father what you did. That Is," he added, "if you'll promise not to do anything reckless again." "You will?" :Bert and Dave asked to- gether, '"out--why, when you wouldn't do it for all that money?" "Because my father willtrust me enough to know there was a reason, even if I don't tell him," Slim boasted. "Honest!" Dave looked at him with new admiration in his eyes, and Slim felt bet- ter than if he had a five-dollar bill in his pocket. The boat drew up beside then "See you found the anchor all right," son," Mr. Saunders said, then lifted a big can of gasoline over the side and stepped into the boat with them. He pushed the other boat away, and with a wave of his hand, called to the other man: "Thanks, Tom. I give you a lift some day next week with that dory you want fixed." Mr. Saunders filled the fuel tank, start- ed the motor, then nodded to Slim to pull up the anchor. When they were headed back toward the harbor, he turned and slowly looked at the boys. "Well?" he asked inquiringly. 'I remembered that anchor Just in time," Slim said, looking at his father Confidently. "And you boys?" the man asked and looked directly into their guilty faces. The brothers looked at each other; then Dave's face grew red and he-tugged at the belt of his trunks nervously. He gave a funny choked gulp.. "It wasn't Slim's fault, Mr. Saunder& We took the boat. Please don't teI1 our father or heql take us back home be- fore we have any summer vacation," Dave blurted out the whole story. 'It looked easy. I thought I could handle the boat -all right, but I guess you have to try some things to find out how much you don't know," Dave's anxious voice pleaded for understanding. Mr. Saunders laughed. "Perhaps yod're right. I'm glad you told me the truth. You see, I saw the whole thing from the wharf over at the harbor. I was watching when you lost the oar. I tried to make it back to the house before Slim started swimming. I knew he could handle the boat all right, but, if he hadn't been a strong swinmer, he never would have made it out to the boat." "Oh, we didn't know about that." Dave's admiring glance brought a flush to Slim's face.- " "By the way, your father was with me on shore, Just before I got Tom's boat to come out here," Mr. Saunders paused, looking at the two anxious faces lifted toward him. "Yes?".Both boys spoke at once, "Did[ he'see us, too ? What did he say.*' Their voices were tense with suspense. "No, he didn't see much. He thought Slim took you for a ride." A smile Crossed his face at the relief that swept across their faces. "He wanted to hire Slimto teach you to handle a boat and to swim long distances," his eyes went to Slim, "and by golly, I think he's man enough to do it, even if you two are older than he is, don't you?" "He sure is," Dave said, his voice back in its old slow drawl 'I never was so glad to see anyone in my life as I was when he came out after us. What about it, Slim, will you teach us?" Then Dave looked at Slim's father, 'I guess there's more than boating he can teach us, too. He's a pretty swell guy." A high school girl, seated next to a famous astronomer at dinner party, struck up a conversation with him by asking 'Tv'hat do you do in life?" He replied: "I study astronomy." "Ttmt's- interesting," said th glrl: -"I finished astronomy last year." ST.
