TIIE "' 0Wl, ~,,, 'F(IU [-'7!:/(::l {l~,IcCiure Synd!cale \~NU Ecrv~, -., CARLTON THOMAS belonged ta the most exclusive senior socie- ty at Parkleigh college. It was en- titled the Order of Owls. It is, of course, a great thing to belong to this society, Membership in it means that you can wear the small enameled owl, not too con- spicuously, of course, but where it will show when you take out your watch. Just one glimpse of that lit- tle enameled pin--and the world is open to you. Carlton Thomas had been out of Parkleigh for ten years, and he had found that his hard progress upward as a lawyer depended very little on his membership in the Owls. But one illusion of his undergrad- uate days remained to Carlton. He still felt that his being an Oval put him up a peg or two with the girls. So, m moments of enthusiastic though perhaps not wise feeling, Carlton had parted with several Owl pins. It had always been possible to get more at headquarters. One morning when Carlton was opening his mail in the bachelor apartment he shared with Steve Tompkins, another Owl from Park- leigh, he was surprised to see a communication from the fraternity headquarters. "I've got one, too," Steve said. "Read what it says." Carlton took Steve's advice. The notice said that according to a re- cent decision of the active Owls, no Owl could be allowed to give his pm to a girl unless he was engaged or married to her. The society felt that some Owls had been a little reckless about the matter, and, as headquarters had a record of the number of pins issued to each mem- ber, all outstanding pins must be~- counted for. They must know that the pins had either been lost or were in proper hands. "But," said Steve, "it's only some of those girl-crazy Johnnies they've been taking in lately who'd give their pins around promiscuously-- not old-timers, like us. If you've lost them, you've lost them." "Yes," muttered Carlton. "If you've lost them -- you've lost them." And he clutched at a special slip that had fallen from his enve- lope, a notification from headquar- ters that he must account for six pins he had applied for. After Steve left, Carlton listed his pins: "One that I wear. Two, I gave my sister to make Maud Dawson jealous by thinking perhaps Steve gave it to her. Three, I gave Maud Dawson to get even with my sis- ter. Write for those two. Four, I gave the little brunette in Rome. Good as lost. Five, I gave Jane Tracy after I quarreled with Cath- erine Brown. Jane threw it away when she found Catherine's initials on the back. Good as lost. Six-- gave to that girl I met in New Hampshire. Can't think of her name. Must ask Steve." That evening Steve sat smoking his pipe and reading while Carlton struggled over some mysterious let- ters. He looked up brightly, and tried to talk nonchalantly "By the way, Steve," he s~aid, "we had a good time up in Ne@ Hamp- shire that year, didn't we?" "Sure," said Steve, "but why drag that in?" "Nice girls, there, too," said Carl- ton, doggedly sticking to his point. "By the way, what was the name of that little one, the one that was so pretty--Peggy something or other, wasn't it?" "A fine time to ask," said Steve, "after you rushed her a month and then came away and never gave her another thought." "Not so fast, young man. I did think about her a lot but not about her name. And it was just after we got back, as you'll remember, if you'll put what brains you've got on the matter, that I was sent abroad. But that's neither here nor there. What's her name?" "Peggy Trent. They're staying at the Hotel Gordon here for the win- ter. The fact is, Carlton, the win- ter you were abroad I used to see a goqd deal of her. I hate to make you any more conceited than you are, but I thought that winter she was rather hurt at the way you be- haved. Anyway, she didn't have much use for me--or anybody else." "Fact?" qCeried Carlton. "I must look her up. As I remember her, I thought she was pretty swell, but I didn't think she was interested--" "Well, don't get all worked up over it," said Steve. "I saw her a couple of nights ago and she was wearing an Owl pin--guess one of the younger men has cut you out, old-tim~r." A few hours later Carlton found Steve still reading in the same chair he had left him. "Well," queried Steve, "did you find out whose Owl pin Peggy's wearing?" "Yes," said Carlton, his face beaming. "She isn't exactly en- gaged yet, but I think from several things She said this evening she won't hold out long. And I can give you my word of honor he's seriously in love with her." "That's good," said Steve, yawn- ing. "I'm going to turn in, But be- fore I go, hadn't we better make our statements about our pins? I bet you haven't given the matter a thought since breakfast."
