LIBERTY HALL

secret or else displayed it and remarked swaggeringly that he guessed he wasn't going to let any so-and-so theatrical producer spoil his fun.
Pen is in Atlantic City now and I have read every book in the house and am writing this just because there doesn't seem to be anything else to do. And also because we have a friend, Joe Frazier, who is a magazine editor and the other day I told him I would like to try my hand at a short story, but I was terrible at plots, and he said plots weren't essential; look at Ernest Heming«•ay; most of his stories have hardly any plot; it's his style that counts. And he-I mean Mr. Frazier suggested that I write about our visit to Mr. and Mrs. Thayer in Lansdowne, outside of Philadelphia, which Mr. Frazier said, might be termed the visit that ended visits and which is the principal reason why I am here alone.
Well, it was a beautiful night a year ago last September. Ben was conducting the performance—" Step Lively' --and I was standing at the railing of the Boardwalk in front of the theater, watching the moonlight on the ocean. A couple whom I had noticed in the hotel dining-room stopped alongside of me and pretty soon the woman spoke to me, something about how pretty it was. Then came the old question, wasn't I Mrs. Ben Drake? I said I was, and the woman went on :
" My name is Mrs. Thayer-Hilda Thayer. And this is my husband. We are both simply crazy about AL Drake's music and just dying to meet him personally. We wondered if you and he would have supper with us after the performance tonight."
" Oh, I'm afraid that's impossible," I replied. " You see when they are having a tryout, he and the librettists and the lyric writers work all night every night until they get everything in shape for the New York opening. They never have time for more than a sandwich and they eat that right in the theater."
" Well, how about luncheon tomorrow? "
" He'll be rehearsing all day."
" How about dinner tomorrow evening? "
" Honestly, Mrs. Thayer, it's out of the question. Mr. Drake never makes engagements during a tryout week."
" And I guess he doesn't want to meet us anyway," put in Mr. Thayer. "`Vhat use would a genius like Ben Drake have for a couple of common-no-account admirers like Mrs. Thayer and myself ! If we were ` somebody' too, it would be different! "
