Her band went to the clip. "I was going to say that by keeping everything impersonal we —" "It matches your eyes. Is it Brazilian?" "I don't know. I bought it at an auction. Is that good—Brazilian?" "Very good. Citrine quartz doesn't have that lively depth of color." She was silent before this vast display of knowledge. If he knew stones, there was no telling what other fascinating things were stored away in his mind. He said, "Let's forget the formula business. What's the real reason ?" "The formula is not acceptable," she snapped. Darn him anyway. "It wouldn't be budget, would it?" He had drawn her in again. Budget was the truth, the truth she had come to tell him, only he'd got her off on a detour by way of Brazil. She slapped the desk. "Yes, if you want to know! I've never gone over budget on any picture yet, and I don't intend to. We can bill five hundred dollars for Ad Twenty-seven, and that's all. Your version would double that amount." "Babyskin spends a million a year on advertising. If you ask me, somebody's selling you short." "I'm not asking you! I'm very happy Mr. Zwinnick favors us at all." "Five hundred peanuts. And I thought this business was going to be fun." A phone rang. Carol answered it and covered the mouthpiece with her hand. "Miss Wyman, Mr. Zwinnick is here, and he's down on the stage. He's getting in everybody's hair and they want to know what to do with him." Nathalie looked from Carol to Joe and her eyes sparked with inspiration. Pulling Zwinnick away from his beloved playthings was a man-sized job. Zwinnick wouldn't stand for any trumped-up nonsense. She said, her voice dripping honey, "Mr. Frane, get Mr. Zwinnick out of the studio and into my office, will you?" Joe ambled toward the door. "You want him vertical or horizontal?" "Vertical, if you please. Little Gem doesn't insult its customers." Seat Covers of VI NYLITE Brand Plastic AN BM Cit M.

Investigation revealed that it was improperly installed. Gus, in a fury, sued the burglar-alarm company for damages to compensate for the burglary loss. You charged me a fancy price for a system to protect my property!" Gus stormed. " Fine protection it turned out to be! You bungled putting the company.

If you were the judge, would you order the company to pay Gus? * * * * * Gus lost. Even if the alarm had sounded and someone had responded, the court said, there was no assurance that the burglary would have been prevented. It tossed out, as mere "speculation," the theory that the burglary suc- ceeded because the alarm failed. Based upon a 1946 decision of the Connecticut Supreme Court of Errors.
