She hurried on to her lonely flat,
and stood looking In the mirror. Thirty,

After a while she got up and washed

She couldn't eat yet?she was too

hadn't meant to commit herself so
far. Yet the lady was very kind, and
arrangements were easily made.
She had never been to the barracks
before, and she thrilled to the ride
over the snowy road, but she was
more fascinated by the children under
her care. Their too-bright eyes glit
tered, and they pressed sharp noses
against the car windows, leaving
marks where they had touched.
They were excited, terribly excited,
but happy, too. So was Marcia. Joy
and excitement shone from her eyes,
making her usually pleasant but rather
plain countenance radiant.

officers' uniform, a handsome man. not

the children began eating, he came
