THE STORY: The pretty, green- f
eyed girl knew the young man
was no park bench loafer, sensed
he was a Job-seeker like herself
since both were studying the
want ad columns as they sat on
the same seat in the park. It
seemed quite natural that she
should listen to his story of how
he, Ted Andrews, super-salesman,
had lost his Job with Are-High
I Card Tables Co. when his selling
i stunt to stack tables one above
the other and then climb on top
of the stack ended in a crash
that injured a few bystanders. 11
seemed even more natural to tell
I him how she had worked for a
! doctor in downstate Sumner for
five years, living with her aunt
and uncle after her mother died
and giving them everything sne
earned for room and hoard. “I'm
looking for my Dad," she said,
explaining her mother had left
him because he was an imprac-
tical inventor. “Tim Donovan is
his name,'' she went on. “He was
planning to build a factory h>'rr."
Then Ted Andrews thrust the pa-
per under her nose. A want ad
sought Katie Donovan.
