THERE ARE SMILES

" Oh, you would ! "
" Where do you live? "
" At home."
" That isn't very polite, is it? I was thinking you might live in the Bronx
" I do."
" -and that's on the way to Rye, where I live, so I might drive you "
" Thanks. When I die, I want to die of old age."
" Oh; I'm not a bad driver, really. I do like to go fast, but I'm careful. In Buffalo, where we lived before, the policemen all knew I was careful and they generally let me go as fast as I wanted to.
" This ain't Buffalo. And this ain't no speedway. If you want to go fast, stay off Fifth Avenue."
The girl looked him right in the eye. " Would you like that? "
" No," said Ben.
She smiled at him again. "What time are you through?"
" Four o'clock," said Ben.
" Well," said the girl, " some afternoon I may be going home about then -"
" I told you I wasn't ready to die." " I'd be extra careful."
Ben suddenly realized that they were playing to a large staring audience and that, for once, he was not the star.
" Drive on! " he said in his gruffest tone. " I'm letting you go because you're a stranger, but you won't get off so easy next time."
" I'm very, very grateful," said the girl. " Just the same I don't like being a stranger and I hope you won't excuse me on that ground again."
Which remark, accompanied by her radiant smile, caused Mr. Collins, hitherto only a bathroom singer, to hum quite loudly all the rest of his working day snatches of a gay Ohman and Arden record that his wife had played over and over the night before.
His relief, Tim Martin, appeared promptly at four, but Ben seemed in no hurry to go home. He pretended to listen to two new ones Tim had heard on the way in from Flushing, one about a Scotchman and some hotel towels and one about two Heebs in a night club. He managed to laugh in the right place, but his at
tention was on the northbound traffic, which was now none of his business.
At twenty minutes past four he said good-by to Martin and
