"lk The CATHOLIC NORTHWEST PROGRESS , Page Forty-Nine @ @ being away from home on Christmas--" "Goodbye, Mother. Say a prayer for lwle." Doreen stepped onto a northbound train, wondering what she would do. Ring the bell of the house or go around and creep in a cellar window? She drew out her rosary, closed her eyes and prayed un- til the train eased into Lake Forest. Sev- eral reporters who were on the platform, waved at her. Bartley Fanning, reporter on a rival paper, said: "Here is our own Doreen Woodruff of the Star--the little girl who herds alone. You'll need a pro- tector out here. I appoint myself." "Good." And Doreen smiled as she tusked, "Will you call a cab for me? I'm on my way to Dr. McCloon's office. My finger may be broken." She held up her hand. "I tied my handkerchief around it so it wouldn't break off altogether."' "McCloon? He's Angeline's doctor." "So what?" "She asks, 'So what?' My child, where have you been these two drear days?" He called the cab, bundled her in, and got in beside her then asked: "Did Chal- lis rehearse y0u?" "To break my finger, Bart?" He longed to smite her. Tantalizing him with a mask of dumbness! If she'd be a good sport, tell what she knew, let them all beat it to their papers, and get home for supper on Christmas Eve .... Bartley was sentimental. Christmas was a holy, loving time with him. His mother lived up near LibertyviUe, alone, on the farm. Sisters and brothers were settled near. They all came home Christ- mas Eve---and Doreen could send him home, if she chose.

You can help him give me ether." "Doreen, I thought you were sham- minK." "My mother always says newspaper- men wouldn't trust their own grandmoth- ers, and now I know she is right." The receptionist smiled as Doreen held tip her hand and said, "First aid." "Come right in here." The nurse opened a door and beckoned. Doreen found her- self away from Bartley at last. John McCloon had been an intern on ambulance dutywhen Doreen began work on the paper. "I'm not hurt, Jack," she said quickly. "You're Angeline Mossiter'a doctor and I want to make believe I'm her nurse--" "Oh, yes ?" Doreen talked fast after that. She wanted to help Angeline, get her away from the reporters, and then: "I'll go to Bohn, plead for Angeline--" Dr. MeCloon listened. Finally, he agreed to let Doreen borrow a nurse's uniform, then he led her out the rear door, bundled her into his car, and drove to Angeline's home. She slipped on dark glasses az they rode. "The horses got out," Angeline said. "I was leading them back to the Bohn pas- ture when the stableman met "me and accused me of theft. Did you know that the stableman is a Lake Forest corres- pondent? He wrote the story." "I will go and talk to Mr. Bohn," Do- reen said. "Jack, will you - drive me over ?" Jack was glad to. A maid opened the door. Yes, Mr. Bohn was in. Be eeated. But in a few moments she returned to say, "Mr. Bohn will not see you." "I'll wait," said Doreen, politely but firmly. The maid disappeared again, was gone for several minutes, then returned to say, "Mr: Bohn will see you." Doreen went, straight to the point. "Angeline Mossiter's whole life will be ruined if you press these silly charges made by a would-be newspaper corres- pondent. Your horses got out, Angellne rounded them up, was bringing them back to the pasture--yes, I know she de- toured a short distance to have her pic- ture taken--and your stableman is--" "Nurse, you doubtless mean well, but--" "Tomorrow is hristhms. Come over to Angeline's house with me now--Dr. McCIoon is waiting outside--and tell all the reporters it was a mistake about An- geline stealing the horses. Say they broke out and she was returning them--" The great Augustus Bohn thought It over. Finally he consented. "I'll go with you. I've always had a lot of. respect for a nurse's opinion." Doreen did not answer. The uniform wasn't a perfect fit, but maybe her coat hid most of it. On the train to the city, Bartley said: "Dorrie, when I come,back tomorrow, and stop at your house, what are you going to tell me---about--you know what I've been asking you for a year?" "I am saying YES right now," Doreen answered. "You stay all day tomorrow with your mother, and when we get mar- ried we can live up there, and "you can commute--" "Who is going to run our home---you or me ?" "You are, darling." She smiled at him. "Dad runs our home beautifully. News- papermen are that way--great execu- tives." W'hen the train came to the 45th Street Station, Doreen kissed him quickly, step- pad out, walked the two blocks to her home. Mike sat in the kitchen, and his shoes on the floor beside him. "You're home," said her mother. "That's the right Christmas spirit! You both for- got your papers and came home to me."
