THE THIRD DAY after Mrs, Peabody
had settled into he* new summer cot-
tage on Lake Owasco, she decided to pay
« visit to her nearest neighbor a few hurt*
dred yards down the path that skirted the
•bote. But before she had even gotten
within sight of her neighbor's house in the
tree-fringed cove, Mrs. Pcabody's atten-
tion was drawn eo the woebegone figure of
n tittle girl crouching at the water's edge*
staring soulrully Into the blue depths*
As Mrs* Peabody approached, she was
startled to sec that die girl's clothes and
halt were dripping wet, and that her skin
bad the awful white pallor of ft shroud-
She's probably Just recovered from »
long illness, Mrs. Peabody thought. Thar
would explain her ghastly whiteness.
> This might be ber very first day out-of-
doors, but she'll probably be having n re-
lapse after that wetting she apparently
"How did you get so vet, child?" Mrs.
Peabody asked wjth concern. "Did yon
fall into the lake?"
The girl looked up a( bet with eyes of
cloudy blue. "Oh, yes,** she said gravely.
"And it was cold. So eold».for eo long."*
"Well, why don't you go, on home and!
gel dry and warm? You'll catch your
death sitting there like that!"
The girl smiled slowly, sadly. **Yo»
don't catch death. Death catches yon.
But it isn't so bad. He looks very terrible,
but he's very gentle with little girls. It
didn't hurt much,'*
The poor thing's delirious, Mrs. Peabody
thought In alarm. "Where do you live,
solid? I'll fc»v# to take you home right
"Oh, yoo're oeming into the lake witb
Bel'* the girl exclaimed, standing up with
a pleased expression on her face.* "That'll
be fun! There's ow oos e!ss down cher*
except some grouchy old fisherman* Come
on.., take my hand and Til chow you bow
easy it is. All you have to do is step
right into the lake and*..**
Mrs. Peabody drew back in horror as
she felt the icy clamminess of the girl's
hand touching hers* The child's tem-
perature must be terribly low due to shock
and exposure* she thought wildly; that
was the only explanation for the death-
ly Iciness of that touch. And as for
what the girl had sald M .well, that was
merely the raving of m sick mind.
Realizing that the delirious girl prob-
ably wouldn't obey any orders from a
stranger to return to her home, Mrs* Pea-
body said, "What's your name, child?'*
"Alice Hanscomhe. But .aren't you
coming into the lake with me.,.?"
Hanseombe. The renting agent had
told Mr*, peabody that her nearest neigh-
bor's name was Hanscombe. "No, dear*"
Mrs. Peabody said as she began to
hurry away. "Now you stay right there .
and I'll be right bacfc,**
As Mrs* Peabody rounded the edge
of the cove and saw the Hanseotnbe
house ahead* eh* thought she heard
ei splash coming from behind ner*,.arid
that ooly mad* her quicken her step*
Into * run. When she burst Into the
kitchen of the house* she said breath-
lessly to the woman standing st
the stove, "Mrs. Hanscombe. «I, .,!'<*■

**Dear Editor f
My favorite comic up to now has been 'Advenrures Into The Unknown',
but at last I've found one which t like equally** 'Forbidden Worlds'! Yes, I think
that 'Forbidden Worlds' has done a great fob in living up to your earlier magazine
in every respect—even though t would have thought it impossiblel t especially
liked tbe stories, 'Demon of Destruction' and 'The Monster Doll'. I'd. like to see
you try some good robot stories"*also zombies,
••Dmar Editor;- -Michael R. Elliott, Portland, Ore."
I haw just finished reading r v*T new book called 'Forbidden Worlds', and
I think it is tbe best book I have ever read. I can also say tbe same thing about
your •Adventures Into The Unknown'— so take your pick! I am crippled with
arthritis and cannot walk, and wonderful books like these help me to pass my time
tbrillingty. Tbe stories I tike best are about vampires and werewolves—but any
stories of the Unknown and supernatural send me. Keep up the good work—and
keep these books rolling!

troubles out to,. .had Invited the second
nan over to the booth for a drink.
"I...I. can't stand this waiting any

world I came from, to the world of 2967
Tn« ana paused to drink froar the glass
fa front of him* as if to give himself
courage fet what he felt he had to say.
•H^j know you won't believe me," he
continued after draining his glass and
signaling the bartender for another. '*But
it's iuat as well that yoa think j'tn raving
in * drunken delirium, or that I'm a mn*»
man. I don't care what you think, as long
as you listen to me... If... if I don't talk
about this to someone, 1...I will go crazy!"
The second man nodded sympathetically,
M if he understood.. .and the first man con-
tinued: "You see, 1 originally came from
the 30th century. You couldn't possibly
have any idea what that world is like. The
robots control all aspects of life...from the
moment of birth, the human infant is as*
signed to his place in life, according to
what the robot analyzers think he's best
suited for. And from that moment on, th*
human's life becomes ordered and regi-
mented down to the very last detail.
"There's no chance for the slightest
expression of individualism, of freedom of
will or choice. It all amounts to what you
Americans would call a slave-state. ..where
all humans are staves to the all-powerful,
' ceesnal, heartless robots!
1T» that world, I was ah historian of the
past. Mine was the Job of using the time-
machine to return to the dead ages of the
past, investigate those ages* and then re*
rata to tho 30th century' to write up the
history. It was expected that I return*^*
waa unthinkable' dial 1 should not. And the
thought never crossed my mind to remain
In the Stone Ages, or in the era of the
Roman Empire, for example... until I came
to the United States ia the year 1951-
**At first 1 was astonished at the de-
mocracy that you Americans take for
granted. 1 was amazed at the freedom all
of you had, at your ability to choose your
own lives, to do pretty much what you
pleased, as long as you hurt no one else.
And as I lived among you day after day,
studying your habits and customs, I slowly
realized that this was the kind of life I
wanted and longed for...that 1 could never
go back to that despotic slave-state of the
robots after once having tasted the freedom
and democracy here.
"So 1 deserted my century and my mas*
ters. I destroyed the instrument that was
necessary for. my return to 2967 A. 0. ...
and became one of you! But I know it is
impossible to keep a secret from my robot
masters. I am long overdue, and I am sure
rhat they have long since sent a detective

must be a man who has been trained in the

how well I covet my tracks and try to lose
myself among you. Any day now my pur-
suer will find me, place a strong hand on
my shoulder and say..."

hand on the first man's shoulder, and said,
