" What's on tonight? " asked Stu as the dessert was served.
" Well," said Rita, " I thought these people would want to get to bed early after their trip, so we won't go anywhere. We might have a little bridge. Do you feel like bridge, Jennie? "
" I'm awfully sorry, but neither Bob or I play. I know it must be a wonderful game and some of our best friends play it a great deal, but somehow or other, Bob and I just never took it up."
This was a terrific blow to Rita, who counted that day lost which was without its twenty or thirty rubbers.

" You said it wasn't," put in Bob.
" Well, it isn't, if you don't care-if you just But to learn to play it right, it's impossible! "
" Have you got a radio?" asked Bob. He pronounced the "a" short, as in Buchanan.
" I'm sorry to say we haven't," said Stu, who wasn't sorry at all. " I don't know how you get along without one," said Bob. "We just live for ours! " said Jennie.
" What is it, an Atwater-Bent ?" asked Rita.
She had seen that name in some paper yesterday.
" No," replied Bob. " It's a Ware Neutrodyne, with a Type X
receiver."
" And an Ethovox horn," added Jennie. " We had Omaha one night."
" You did 1 " said Rita.
