And out what the citizens needed the
most. He soon determined to replace
tbelr bell, which the Germans bad taken.
Major Joppolo found that the beD wa*
the very symbol of their private and
civic Ufe In Adano. He determined to
secure a bell satisfactory to the people.
Craxi said: "I needed no bell. I
was on the beach to welcome the
Americans. My woman was with
me, the formidable Margherita, and
my seven children. We were on the
beach in spite of the shooting, to
greet the Americans. But what did
my children shout? They did not
shout: 'We miss the tinkling of the
bell.' They shouted: 'Caramellel
Caramelle!' They were hungry.
They wanted candy. I myself, who
had had enough to eat as it happens,
shouted for cigarettes, not for the
pealing of a bell."
Borth and the usher Zito came
back. Borth said: "It's nifty, Ma
jor. All the records are intact. They
tell everything. There are lists of
anti-Fascists and lists of those who
were enthusiastic and the others
who were lukewarm. There's a dos
sier on each important person. It's
perfect. Who are these guys?"
Cacopardo said: "Cacopardo is
my name, at your service, sir. Ca
copardo is sulphur and sulphur is
Borth said: "I remember that
name. In the records it says Caco
Craxi said: "That Is true. He
thinks that bells are more impor
tant than food."
Borth turned on Craxi in mock
anger. "And who is this?"
Craxi was apologetic again: "I
am anti-Fascist. Craxi. I believe
in food for the moment."
Major Joppolo said: "They are
arguing which is more important,
food or restoring the bell. Since we
obviously can't do anything about
the bell just now, food is our con
Craxl looked very proud of him
self, but Cacopardo turned to Zito
and said: "We will leave this mat
ter to the son of Rosa who was the
wife of Zito. What do you say,
small Zito, do you consider the food
or the bell more Important?"
Surprisingly Zito said; "I think
Major Joppolo was interested by
this. He leaned forward and said:
Zito said: "Because the tone of
the bell was so satisfactory."
"No," said Cacopardo, "it is be
cause of the history of the bell.
When the bell spoke, our fathers and
their fathers far back spoke to us."
Even Craxi was swept into this
argument. "No," he said, "it was
because the bell rang the times of
day. It told us when to do things,
such as eating. It told us when to
have the morning egg and when to
have pasta and rabbit and when to
drink wine in the evening."
Zito said: "I think it was the tone
which mattered. It soothed all the
people of this town. It chided those
who were angry, it cheered the un
happy ones, it even laughed with
those who were drunk. It was a tone
Giuseppe came in bringing the
priest. Father Pensovecchio was
gray-haired and cheerful, and as he
approached the group around the
Major's desk he made a motion with
his right hand which might have
been interpreted either as a bless
ing or as a Fascist salute.
After the introductions, Major
Joppolo said to the priest: "Father,
wc are speaking of the old bell
which was taken away."
Father Pensovecchio said: "That
is the disgrace of this town. I have
in my church a bell which is just as
loud as the one which was taken
away, though not so sweet and much
younger and altogether meaningless
as a bell. Any other bell would
have done as well in my belfry. I
wanted to send my bell. But the
Monsignor would not permit it. The
Monsignor is the uncle of the Mayor.
He has reasons for doing the things
he does—" Father Pensovecchio
crossed himself, indicating that the
things which the Monsignor did were
somewhat ugly; "—but in this case
I believe he was wrong."
Borth said: "It's ridiculous. There
are lots of things more important
than this bell. Get them some food
and don't forget that alleyway."
Major Joppolo said: "All the
same, the bell is Important to
them." And he said then in Italian:
"Thank you for telling me about
the bell. I promise you that I will
do all I can to get another bell
which will have some meaning as a
bell and will have a good tone
and its history will be that it was
given to you by the Americans to
take the place of the one which was
taken away by the Fascists to make
Cacopardo said: "You are kind."
Craxi said: "I thank you, Mister
Major, and I kiss your hand."
Major Joppolo said: "You what?"
Cacopardo the historian said: "He

torn here. Once the important peo
ple make us kiss their hands, and
later when the actual kissing be
came too much of a bother, it be
came the habit merely to mention
the kissing, as if it had been done."
Craxi said: "I meant no offense,
Mister Major. I am anti-Fascist."
Major Joppolo said: "It appears
that everyone in this town is anti-
Fascist. Well, we will see about
the bell. Now I wish to speak alone
with the priest. Zito, you may stay.
You are my usher. Giuseppe, you
may stay. You are my interpreter."
Craxi said: "Mister Major, the
Major Joppolo said: "I will try
to send it."
Craxi mentioned the kissing
again, and turned to go.
When the others had gone, Major
Joppolo said to Father Pensovec
chio: "Father, I wish to tell you that
the Americans want to bring only
good to this town. As in every na
tion, there are some bad men in
America. It is possible that some
Americans who come here will do
bad things. If they do, I can as
sure you that most of the Ameri
cans will be just as ashamed of
those things as you are annoyed by
Father Pensovecchio said: "I
think we will understand weakness
in your men just as we try to under
stand it in our own."
Major Joppolo said: "Thank you.
Father, I have been told that you
are the best priest in Adano."
The priest said with quite honest
modesty: "I am here to do my
Major Joppolo said: "Therefore I
should like to ask a favor of you.
Blood and wind rushed into bis
throat and his throat roared.
You must feel perfectly free to re
fuse me if you wish. I should like
to ask you to say a few words be
fore your mass tomorrow morning
about the Americans. I shall leave
it to you to say what you wish, if
you will merely add that there are
certain proclamations which the
Americans have posted which ought
to be read."
Father Pensovecchio said: "That
I can easily do."
Major Joppolo said: "I myself
am a Catholic. If you will have
me, I should like to attend your
The priest said: "It will be a
pleasure to have you." Major Jop
polo was glad that he did not say it
would be an honor.
Major Joppolo said: "I shall see
you tomorrow then."
Father Pensovecchio said, just to
make sure: "At the Church of San
Angelo. It is by the Piazza of that
name. At seven in the morning.
Until then, son."
When the priest had left, Giuseppe
said in his brand of English: "You
doing okay, a boss. All you got a
do now is fix a food."
"Yes," said Major Joppolo, "food.
We'll go to the bakeries. But first,
do you have a crier here?"
Giuseppe said to Zito in Italian:
"What is the name of the crier?
Did he run into the hills with the
Zito said: "No, he is here. Mer
curio Salvatore. He is here. Only,
Mister Major, he does not always
say exactly what you tell him to
say. He will say the general mean
ing of what you wish, but he will
change it some. Even if you write
it down, he will change it some."
Major Joppolo said: "Will you get
him, please, Zito? I want to send
him out to tell the people to read the
Zito went. Major Joppolo said to
Giuseppe: "We will go to the bak
eries, then we will post the procla
Giuseppe said: "Okay, a boss."
Major Joppolo looked down at his
desk and saw Craxi's telegram He
undid the safety pin and unfolded
the paper and read:
"To Franklin D. Roosevelt, Capi-
tol Building, Washington, D. C. Fre
mente di gioia per la liberta da mol
to tempo attesa che i vostri valorosi
soldati anno dato alia citta d'Adano

"Giuseppe," the Major said, "let't
see how good you are as an inter
preter. Now, this is for President
Roosevelt. You must make it a*
eloquent as you can. What does it
"To Franklin D. Roosevelt and a
so forth," said Giuseppe. "Crazy
with joy because of a liberty so long
time awaited which your brave a
soldier have a give to a town of
Adano. What's a stop?"
"That's just the end of a sen
"End a sentence. I beg a you
accept a sincere sentiments of my
gratitude and a recognition. Signed
a this Craxi. You going to deliver
it, a boss?"
"Sure," the Major said, "the Pres
ident will be glad to hear."
Mercurio Salvatore, crier of the
town of Adano, took a little time to
show up, because he had to get into
his uniform. His face was happy
when he did arrive, because he had
thought that his crying days were
over. Having been a voice of Fas
cism for seventeen years, he thought
that the newcomers would not want
his loud shouts. He had taken his
uniform off and hidden it in the
house of Carmellna the wife of Fat
ta. He had then awkwardly pa
raded himself in civilian clothes and
the people, having seen him in uni
form for seventeen years, laughed
"Where is the crier?" they asked
each other in his presence.
"He has disappeared into the
clothes of Fatta which do not fit
him," they shouted, and laughed.
Therefore Mercurio Salvatore was
happy and grateful when he pre
sented himself to Major Joppolo. "I
am glad to be able to serve you and
I kiss your hand," he said in his
husky voice. Indoors he had learned
to speak in a kind of whisper, be
cause he knew the strength of his
If Major Joppolo had been any
other American officer, he would
have laughed outright at Mercurio
He said: "Crier, I have a job for
you. I must explain this to you:
the Americans are different from
the Fascists. They are different in
many ways. For this reason there
will be quite a few changes in Ada
no. I hope that they will be changes
for the better."
Mercurio Salvatore said: "Yes,
Mister Major," to show that he
would remember every word of it.
The Major said: "In order to ex
plain some of these changes, I am
going to post at various prominent
places around the town a number of
proclamations, which will make ev
erything clear. All I want you to do
is to tell the people to read these
proclamations. Impress on thom
that the penalties for not obeying
the proclamations will be severe.
That is all."
Mercurio Salvatore looked disap
pointed. "That is not much to
shout," he said.
Major Joppolo said: "Shall I name
a new crier?"
Mercurio Salvatore said quickly:
"Oh no, Mister Major, I will make
something beautiful of what you
Major Joppolo said: "The procla
mations will be posted before five
o'clock this afternoon."
Mercurio Salvatore said: "Yes,
Mister Major," and left.
He picked up his drum whore h«
had left it outside the Major's office.
Ordinarily he had made his first
cry in the Piazza Progresso, right
in front of the Palazzo, but this time
he was self-conscious, and wanted
to have a few tries before crying
within earshot of the Major. There
fore he went first to the park oppo
site the Cathedral.
He rolled his drum long and
He took a deep breath. Blood and
wind rushed into his throat, and his
throat roared: "Well, you laughed.
But you can see that Mercurio Sal
vatore is still your crier. The Amer
icans are friends of Mercurio Sal
vatore. The Americans wish to be
your friends, too. You have been
expecting the Americans for some
time, but did you expect the changes
which would come after the Ameri
cans? Did you know that they were
going to change many things after
they came? Did you know that they
were going to change practically
everything except the crier? Well,
your crier is here to tell you this."
Now Mercurio Salvatore filled his
lungs and bellowed: "Opposite me
I see Carmelina the wife of Fatta
In front of her house. I also see the
lazy Fatta leaning against the wall
of his wife's house. The crier wishes
to thank Carmelina for storage of
his uniform during the difficult time
of the invasion. He wishes also to
address a few words to her lazy
husband. It is unfortunate, lazy Fat
ta, that you never learned to read.
It is too bad that you were too sloth
ful to memorize the letters of the
alphabet. This afternoon you would
have had a chance to read of the
changes which our friends the
Americans intend to bring about
here in Adano.

Making That Problem Window Fit

TPHE smart plaid curtains shown
herewith match the window
seat and several slip covers, and
the wooden curtain pole, rings and
draw cord match the dominant
colpr in the plaid repeating the
color of small cushions and lamp

guess that originally it looked like
a postage stamp in the middle of
a blank wall. At first it seemed
impossible to curtain it because
fixtures could not be screwed to
melal casements or the plaster.
The built-in book shelves helped
that. A space a foot wide was al
lowed at each side of the window
so that the curtains could hang
over the wall, and the painted
wooden pole was then screwed
to the sides of the shelves. The

draw cord was knotted so that the
