"Don't blame me," he said, "if you de- velop a whinny out of this. My first experience was gotten band- aging up the hoof of a horse." "'That the same horse, the one named Jones?" "Oh have I mentioned Jones?" Baldwin chuckled. "It's funny how a man reaches for the same familiar subject each time he starts a conve- ation. His mind is like his liL:ary of books at home. He has some that he uses,! leaving untouched all the others that might be more interesting." "'My mind," said Link. "doesn't work like that You wouldn't be getting at something else?" "I might." "Okay. What are you driving at?" For a moment. Baldwin gritted his teeth and looked at his hurt- ing foot. which Link was band- aging. "I guess," he said, "that I was just curious about what makes Americans act like Americans." "The horse Jones," said Link, "was pretty important. He was some horse, I thought, I was a small boy on a farm. I was 14 years old and I was going to make ten thousand dollars racing Jones in county fairs. On all that money, : I was going to retire to K City for the life of RockefeLler. But Jones never won a race." "So I suppose your ideas of the world were wrecked?" "They were not. That's the point." "Eh?" "Don't you see it?" said Link. "I had a swell time spending the ten thousand dollars. In my mind, I mean. It's a good thing I didn't get my hands on it. Ten thousand dollars isn't so much money, and I would have found that out. It was a rosy dream. It remained that. And it had been so much fun that I went looking for an- other. A bigger one. Even more t rose-colored. Some fun.'" "Did that one win for you?" "Of course not. None of them have come in a winner. Oh, some of them got part way, but not far enough to disillusion me." Link grinned at his own de- scription of his past. He liked it" The race horse Jones. the flea- bag, had really given him a per- #i manent lesson in how good it is to enjoy hope. It seemed to Link that  he had enjoyed everything more than some other people after that. He had enjoyed the farm, which  made an overgrown ox of a boy out of him. At 16, passing for 18, he got on with a pipeline con- , struction crew, as laborer, but a radioman. He hadn't minded. He wanted action, and radio was a quick way. The most rose-colored spot tn his Air Corps career had been that last raid on Tokyo. They'd blown hell out of the Hiyudori plane works on the out- skirts of Tokyo. But their bomber caught enough risk to force it down, two of the crew killed, and the pilot died in Link's arms after the landing. They burned the bomber and scattered. The Japs caught Link. He didn't know about the others. The fact wa that Link hadn't dared inquire about the other fel- lows on the bomber He had not admitted he was on a bomber: which had pasted Tokyo. There was a rumor around that the Japs were shooting all captured flyers i who had bombed Tokyo. Link had :kept his mouth shut. The Japs had his name and tag number. That was all he'd told them. It was all he was going to tell them, too. Baldwin broke into this thoughts. "That," said Baldwin, "'is not what makes Americans act like Americans." "'Eh?" said Link, "What's that?" "What we were just talking about. Your horse, Jones. I take it you just had one four-legged real horse. The others you just call horses." "That's right." Link admitted. "Well, I say that isn't what makes Americans act like Amer- icans. Many men of many races have a horse named Jones, don't you think?" Link thought about it. It didn't make sense. He grinned. "'That's silly, isn't it? I mean, this whole talk is silly." "I suppose so." Link tied the bandage and gave it a pat. "I guess we've talked out all the concrete subjects like the weather and poker hands. Nothing left but fantasy. ' He gave the gandage another pat. "How's that?" "It feels fair dinkum." Baldwin wiggled his foot. "Thanks. There's still women." "Are there?" said Link in an unfunny tone 'I mean women as a subject of conversation," Baldwin explained. "They should shoot you for men- tioning it." "Oh, now, I'm not being sadis- tlc, old boy," Baldwin said. "I just wondered if you were married." Link grinned. "No. For some reason, they don't take me seri- ously. You know what a Greal Dane dog is?" they soon fired him unceremonL "One of those devilish big ani ously for prankstering on the Job. reals.
