Copyright, 1653, by Elizabeth Selfwt Distributed by King Features Syndii 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 his old friend, Dr. Craig Talboy, a skilled physician, to come to Norfolk trom a 'distant city for the purpose of taking over the Carr medical practice. Talboy arrives and is warmly greeted by Carr and hla gra- ife, •PI 1C clous wife, Shelly, at dinner In their home. Shelly is struck by the dark handsome Talboy'a dynamic force, his charm and sense of humor and especially by his generally bad opinion of tho mculca) profession, as a whole. B'earfully she wonders .whether her husband's patients will find this bluntly frank nonconformist, acceptable as their doctor, Carr leaves for his mission to the Orient and Dr. Talboy promptly dismisses Carr's lonp devoted office clerk. Miss Cobb. He explains the matter merely by stating that he did not care to be hns-ridden by the woman. Sholly steps Into the vacant clerical post wpndermR as slip doRs so. what motivn' the pompous Carr family may attribute to her move. CHAPTER ELEVEN AS TIME went along, Shelly's work became more and more fascinating. So many types of people came to sit upon the chairs. All the plant Workers In the right- hand room, some with the raspy voices and Uie wheejsy breath of the "old days," when silicosis was treated but not particularly prevented. The plant employes now were required to have regular check-ups. From high to low, every one of them came to Stephen's office twice a year. Shelly found them an interesting 1 lot, .and kept an car open to the discussions that came trom that room. She came to see something of Craig's point lave won their bachelor degrees 1 of view about the waiting rooms; before Ihe NCAA playoffs and pre! it might have done a great deal of sumably svill be ineligible under a rule disqualifying graduate stu dents, Asked if he personally would like to undertake the NCAA with out Hagan.

They discussed everything— politics, religion, the latest gossip in the town — one of the stenos in the 1 plant office— In the lett-han^ room, the talk was more narrowly personal. Those patients talked pf their own ills, and the ills of their friends, in a probing, malicious way that didn't always flt .in with their fine clothes, the cars they drove or their better grammar. Of course, as Shelly quickly discovered, their ills didn't always match their social state, either. f * .* One day, the huge blond man who lived across the street from her own ho«?e, whop? wife Shelly had watcheg and pitied as having to live in th,e apartment rigged up by sisters— this roan came (9 the office with a bad cold. any a neighbor, £e Wft§ S99 and let the doctor call— ."I haven't the time to go to bed. ma'am. I've got work to do. 1 ' His voice had the soft drawl of the Southland; and he was sick . . . Shelly sent him quickly in to see Craig, and heard her own suggestion repeated as an order. "If 1 Knew how to shut off <a head cold like a drippy faucet," Dr. Talboy said from the doorway of his examination r o o rn. "I'd be standing in gilded bronze on a very high pedestal. Now, you do what I say, Ike! Go home to *ed and sweat this thing out, 1 mean sweat, by the way! If your temperature goes higher, have your wife call me." "What about my work?" "Those clay pits have been waiting hundreds of years for yog to put your tape measure to them. They'll wait another week." "Well, will you tell Carr that?" "Sure will. I keep a list of thingg to tell him." The big engineer sneezed and laughed in one mighty burst of sound. "Yeah," h<? agreetf, "I've heard about that list." » » • In the Carr'family, Sunday dinner was one of the lesser rites, but it was a rite, just the same. Shelly, along with all othe/r members of the Carr family, was expectecj to attend, which she did, regularly. When tho ritual of the fe,ast all of its attendant petty family gossip was gpne through, the senior Mr. Carr directed his' attention to Shelly. "Youve be.cn a brave girl," be began warmly, "but I'm .afraid Stevie didn't give enpugh thought to the position he was -putting you in." "Stephen.,." said Shelly quickly. "Jl know, I know!
