The Longhorns meet Rice st Houston, Southcin Methodist at Dallas and Arkansas, at Fayetteville — and there couldn't be a rougher grind ahead for any team with title aspirations. Rice, resting ir second place, one game back of Texas is in better shape than anybody. The Owls play Texas, Arkansas find Southern Methodist at Houston.

A merciless drought that lasted through th« summer still shows no sign of abating. It's no longer just the preoccupation of worried farmers, but has moved, quietly, quietly into the cities and towns. The water stortage varies in acutness depending on locality mt there are communities which lave little over a month's supply eft. At least omj, in fact, has run dry — Olathe.

SYNOPSIS Dr. Stephen Carr Is about to leave his native Norfolk In the mid-west, for Army duty In the Pacific. He has arranged with nls old friend, Dr. Craig Talboy, a skilled physician, to come to Norfolk from a distant city for. the purpose of taking over the Carr medical practice. Talboy arrives and Is warmly greeted by Carr and his gracious wife. Shelly, at dinner In their home. CHAPTER SEVEN THE men laughed. Dr. Talboy cleared his salad plate, and then leaned toward Shelly again. "It'a the reason I can't hold a place .on any clinic or hospital staff," he told'her. 'You must say awful things." She tried to sound forbidding, but tho man's dark eyes hypnotized her. "From their point of view, they are-'awful. The whip of truth stings against a raw surface. But their position is understandable," he added, largely. "It I'm going to say such things aa i do say—no hospital wants to appear to endorse me as a member of its staff." "1 see," said Shelly, and waited, aware that both men were watching her. "As tor building up my own private p r a c 11 c e," Dr. Talboy continued thoughtfully, "whether or not you were going to suggest my doing that, it requires a t a 1 e n t which I frankly do not possess." 'I've been a doctor's wife for only eighteen months," said Shelly sweetly, "but I imagine It does need talent." 'Sure does! Our boy, Stephen, here, has loads of it. Granted his family's money plucked breast feathers out of this town to make his place here gushy and'soft," Shelly's head snapped up. "It did help a lot, darling," Stephen quigfcjy tolcj her. "And don't mind Tglboy's needling. He's 8 conversational sadist," "If," said ghelly thoughtfully, 'you Know you're not good at private practice, and you know why you're not successful in staff work, can't you ., ," "Correct my faults?" he asked )n genuine horror. "Knuckle tp the Big Boys of medicine? Or try to make myself tiiink (hat Mrs. Clones wonderful? And affree that Mrs. lth suffers more thaa any living womajj?" Stephen laughed ajpud., but was "Yes, ma'am," he said firmly, "1 tell Mrs. Jones that she enjoys being a martyr, and I tell Mrs. Smith that she is a neurotic escapist, In the same spirit in which 1 announce to all Interested that the American Medical association was conceived in claptrap, nourished on opportunism and no\V exists for the protection and propagation of the pompous few I" ; Shelly turned pale. "Don't worry about it," Stephen advised her. But ner face remained in blank shock at the unexpectedness and; the violence of Dr. Talboy's pronouncement. , "That," Craig told her solemnly,) "is why 1 am here. You might as well know the worst." : Shelly smiled uncertainly. "But I; thought," she said anxiously, "that doctors—reputable doctors—w ere ail behind the Medical association, and approved." "You see, Carr?" demanded Dr. Talboy sharply. "You see how far the littl' propaganda, has spread its beams?" "Oh, eat your ice cream before it melts," Stephen told him, firmly, and, to Shelly's surprise, Craig obeyed. After an hour of talk In the drawing room, Dr. Talboy departed; he was going to live In a small apartment near the hospital. Ves, it seemed comfortable, he replied to Shelly's interested inquiry. And Donald would be well accommodated. He would, he agreed, bring Donald to see Shelly, Stephen took bis guest to tho door, talked there for five minutes anci came back to his wife with his eyes questioning, "Why did you get btoj?" she asked softly. Dr, Talboy's presence was still actively telt in the room. He was a man one remembered, "I was trying to get the best doctor 1 could," Stephen explained. "But U ne'e not a member of the Medical association , , ," "Nobody has ever suggested that he was not. Of course he's properly licensed." "la that the same *W»gr Stephen laughed shortly. "More nearly tn.an Craig approves of. He, may not now belong to any specific branch pt the association; he's apt i o cat eel for the past few tics. He's a little older than I am, ; of course—" "Ten years?" "A little less, probably. I have an idea he was a boy prodigy. He has that brash, contemptuous manner—though I could be wrong, because 1 also have the Impression that he had to work for his education. Not that his age makes any difference. But he is brilliant, and—" "Carries » chip on his shoulder." Stephen looked thoughtful. "He thinks It's vital to state one's beliefs, no.t just to hava them." "I see." 'T hope you do see, all about Craig. Because you may have to explain my choice to the town." "Oh, no!" ''Of course you may. Someone Is sure to ask, as you did, why I chose him." iAS if her position as Stephen's wite were not difficult enough! She looked blankly into the dark year ahead of her, "'Did you like him 7" she asked, her manner troubled. "When you ' first knew him, in medical school:— ; you don't seem the same type, somehow." . * ; "We're not. I don't know, either, how much 1 lilted him. I do know that ne helped me immeasurably. He was, and ts, a big brain. I was always running to him for help and advjce. He—was generous." '"And now you feel obligated W help him." "No, Shelly. No, that Isn't my motive. Vou see—Craig is a man who literally does fight the good fight. He does get into trouble—" there is one experience which he has had repeatedly, and perhaps, purposefully«- whenever he hap* pens to rnske a successful diagnosis that points up the error of a high.ranking staff doctor, he'll put trie Story into print for the public to read. And loses himself another job. Just recently, he went through all that again." -Oh, dear . , ," "He (s so often right where other men are wrong, Of course, he could b? mo,re .diplomatic in the way he says eo, But don't get the idea he's a-" i do' want you to like him, P M hep voice was Wte cool water. fle tQpbed at her intently.
