Anxiously she searched the crowd. . . And then she saw him! He seemed to have grown since she had seen him last, and she spotted his black hair above the gray uniform as he emerged. She moved forward and opened her lips to cry, "Jeff, here

dressed in a peach colored gown and her hair done up in the latest style. She looked just as pretty as any girl Leah had ever seen, and she was hanging onto Jeff's arm.
