Quick as a flash, Betty ran to the piano and began to play the "Star- Spangled Banner." Instantly the others were on their feet and singing with all the pent-up fervour of the last six months, emotions almost too big to master finding expression in the stirring melody.
"And we're all in it together," cried Betty, eyes bright and cheeks flaming, "for our dear country--for America!"
