"Play much golf?" she asked. Steve said he did, but hadn't until lately. No use being a bore about his pro efforts. IIe couldn't com- pletely suppress curiosity about how this girl played the game, however. But the way she looked in a gray skirt and yellow blouse would justify any performance. It turned out that her game was up to her looks. That was apparent in the first shot she made with an iron straight to the green. She sank the first putt. At the ninth hole she said, "I'll play you through to the eighteenth. That is, if I don't iose the ball." "You'd better not," Steve jibed. It was Ellen,and Steve between them now. Neither one remained more than two strokes up on the other for very long. Steve was playing brisk- ly and enjoying the companionship as well as the sport. At the seven- teenth they were even. Steve held out his hand. "Last hole, Ellen. May the best girl win." Her smile was very warm, and they played the final strokes careiully. Three apiece to the gleen. Ellen canned out in one putt. Steve watched her fondly. A great part- ner, he thought. He took two. That's what happens when you stop concentrating, Steve thought, as they sat in the nineteenth hole with a pair of frosty glasses. But it had been a pleasure to see her win. He was wondering how to ask her for a date. "It was fun," Ellen said. "I'm not angry at that soldier for not showing up. Ensign Ellen Davis had her game anyway." "Who's that?" Steve asked, near- ly dropping his glass. "That's me. I'm a WAVE at the Naval Hospital." Steve decided he wouldn't tell Ensign Davis who lost the play-off until she saw him in uniform when they had the date she made with him then.
