Petit of LSU ISQ Fair Cager NEW YORK (/PI—Bob Pettit of Louisiana State would have been the talk of college basketball this season, if Frank Selvy had been out of the picture. Furman's Solvy, of course.is tha leading scorer in major college competition with a 42-points per game average and with almost every important record in his possession. But Peltit, according to the latest NCAA figures is second with a 33.1 average. Bob's average is higher than anyone ever has posted except Selvy this season. He is well ahead of the record of 29.5 points per game established by the Furman ace last yep.r. Pettit also has a career average of 27.4 points per game an three 50-points plus performances, the only other player besides Selvy to score that many more than once. horse, and (hat Eddie Arcaro ha;; promised to ride it for them May The latest group to develop a grievance against the game's rul- 1 at Louisville. |crs are the m embers of the Carib- This combination up to now ha.rJ?, e: , ln w * nte1 ' Baseball Leagues in battle combination up to now has;£ ubo ' Puerto Rico,- Panama and the 3-year-old classic.

When Lewis came to the hospital and demanded to see his wife, then demanded to see the doctor who had ventured .;•.,,.. Craig was ready to talk to him in short, terse words. "Oh, now,' listen, doctor," protested Lewis. "You're not going to put too much weight on the testimony of a hysterical woman ?" "1 put all the weight In Che world jon the words»,of a woman who has been driven to suicide, Dr. Lewis." "You can't keep me from seeing my wife!" "I think It only fair to warn you," said Craig stonily, "that any talking you may do to the court will be matched by particular and exact testimony from me." Dr. Lewis flinched. "By tier , own choice, Mrs. Lewis Is my patient; Z.do not want her disturbed, She's tried to kill herselt, which puts her Into tho guardianship of the police, if necessary. What about it?" • ••,•• . .;i Dr. Lewis hedged. "Wjcll—now— no use to get hostile. Of course she's a .nervous type. Old maid, just married—" He giggled shrilly. Craig's ^hands clenched at nis side. He meant to help Caroline Lewis—-but not necessarily by killing this perverted man, So nis hands opened. "She's jealous of Lillian, too," Dr, Lewis was saying rapidly. "No reason. Lillian and J have always been close, ot course." Again that disagreeable laugh. Craig shut nis eyes. "I don't think there's any need for a scandal, Xalboy. 1 ' . "Then you'd better respect my orders concerning Mrs. Lewis," 'said Craig coldly, and he walked away from the rotund, and now somewhat apprehensive, Dr. Lewis. Ot course there was talk; Norfolk's life blood was gossip. Ruth Carr tried to get Shelly to tell what had really Happened out at Lewis's. "Being in the ofliee, you—" "Please don't -ask me such things, Ruth," said Shelly (irmly. "It J-know anything, i can't talk about it. And it I don't—which Is usually the case—there Isn't anything Jl could tell." "Did she try to kill herself?" "I couldn't say." Qossip decided that Mrs. Lewis had taken too much ot some sort of medicine, either by accident or , and, alone in the house that evenlng-rthe doctor had driven nis daughter Lillian to the. city—she had wandered, dazed, out of doors, and ttftd fainted.

Agnes stepped back Invitingly and he went Into the hall, rosy with lamplight. There were voices to the right, tho smell of a wood fire—and Shelly came out swiftly at Agnes' word. A lovely, somewhat regal Shelly in a black frock, her golden hair swept upward, a twinkling pendant hanging from a thin gold chain around her .white throat. "If you have guests," said Dr. Talboy, "I can call another time." "1 don't have guests—" Then her hand swept down across her black dress. "I helped serve at a tea this afternoon," she explained her glory. "1 hadn't changed. Come in, won't you? Where's Donald?" . ' "1 left him but in the carl" "Fetch him, won't you?"i This was a Shelly new 19 him, glowing, gracious, self-assured. the payoff. When tke came back from his trip, Miss Roxie told him that Myra had been sleeping away from home, she didn't know where —and it didn't look right. She ran a respectable house, and expected her tenants to be respectable." "She didn't know where Myra had been?" "Ot course she did. She had told all the Carrs that I'd taken that—well, ner terms varied. IVom- an was one. Cracker. Hillbilly." Craig grunted and scratched his jaw. "What did Ike' say?" "His main concern was to think that Myra had bothered me. ft didn't take him mng to find her, because she was on her way home —Having spied his car." "So you've taken them in here to live?" "Do you think I should not, Dr. Talboy?" He finished Ills, cigaret, his eyes Neither the nicely demure' wife i on t | le fire. "You could check on standing beside the bulk ot Stephen Carr, nor the self-possessed, but slightly diffident, girl who had become familiar in his office., "Well—" he agreed, and went outside for the dog, who came in happily and sat up to offer his paw politely to Shelly. In the hall, two other people were now with Shelly. A big, blond man— a.'.huge blond man— and a slender, dark girl with marvelous eyes. Shelly introduced them, "Mr. and Mrs, Vandable," Craig recognized Ike as a former patient. ' "And Myra is a future one," satd Shelly, ' "Oh?" His black eyes smiled at Myra. "She's drummln' up business," laughed Myra, starting up the stairs. Ike followed her, though Shelly murmured that they need not leave. "Only condition on which we stay," said Myra. "We both do as we please," "All right, then," laughed Shelly, and led the way into the room where Donald had already stretched nis shaggy black self be" fore the tire. "Conditions?" said Dr. Talboy, waiting id see that Shelly was seated in a chair. "It's a long story," Shelly told him. "Do you want to hear it?" "I'll listen to yours if you'll listen to mine," "We'll draw straws to see who goes first." Yes, she was different ... and lovely. Exciting, She pointed to the cigarets and began to sketch out the situation concerning Myra; she told of the them, through the plant— Vnnci- able seems a nice sort of chap. Educated. It may be a risk, taut I don't think a physical one. And if you're lonely ..." ' "I am," said Shelly earnestly. "I'd say they were good to have around. The giri is unusual, isn't she?" ; Shelly laughed. "You should hear her talk, She's so full of sayings — all spoken in that soft drawl." "What do your in-laws say?" "Oh, they point out the risk. They have thought all along that 1 should go to the city and ue near my mother." She explained briefly about her mother's illness, "You're a big girl now," he said kindly. "Ready to decide such things for yourself." Again there was a small silence, friendly enough. The sleeping Donald yipped suddenly, and they both laughed. Dr. Talboy glanced at Shelly. "Teas, eh?" "Yes, Ruth entertained for the District D. A. R." "That would be Mrs. Maupin." Dr. T'al boy was locating Ruth in the family group. "Big woman, dark, forceful. One child." Shelly caught back a bubble of laughter, "I suppose it was the usual gossipy party?" "There were fifty women, all talking at once." "Any talk about Mrs. Lewis?" The golden head lifted quickly, and a shadow of a frown crossed Shelly's face. "1 did not come here to ask that!" said Pr. Talboy hurriedly.

"Do you know Dr. Lewis?" "Yes, and I've met his wife. There were parties for them when they were married. I liked her, and wondered..." "Why she would marry him?" Shelly's pink cheeks were his answer. "I'm not in the market for gossip as such, Shelly," he said after another pause. "I know you're not, Doctor." "1 wish you'd call me by my first name. After all, I am Stephen's, friend." "Yes," she said warmly, "and lie likes you very much. All right, it shall he Craig, then. Even in the office?" "As you choose. Now, if you Fellers, the "harmless Idiot" boy—r than was warranted. the makeshift apartment. And she Shelly flushed, told of Myra's Impulsive request ''But the thing is on my mind," that she be allowed to sleep one olght m a bed such as she knew Shelly must have, Catching Craig's slight frown, lw satd warmly, "It was pointed put the risk But, ran. it was no risk, ccajlyl w&teMng her for ^hree Just m she'3 been confessed the doctor more quietly, "To me, the worst of the 1 whole stinking affair Is the way the town has found to excuse what is inexcusable. I've sensed those ex» QUsaa, without knowing precisely what they were, 1 thought, having been to a party where there to gossip ' would tell rne what you know about the Lewis setup." "It isn't much. Dr. Lewis seems very popular—and I thought He was a widower when he first came to Norfolk. But it seemed liis wife was an invalid; she died last year. 1 don't remember just when except that it was hot when they had the 1'uncral. He has one child, a grown daughter—she. works -in the city, I believe, and comes home on weelt ends. I—1 don't like the doctor much myself, but he is generally popular." "Did Stephen like him?" Shelly El-owned in an effort to remember. "1 don't Know. He's been at Carr parties. 1 think he is more popular with women than with men. 1—don't like Him. I don't care too much for middle- aged men with amorous manners." Dr. Talboy laughed. "Anybody ever tell you that you didn't need to, with your youth and beauty?" Shelly's lips pouted her reproof. "And his marriage ..." prompted her caller. "Oh, yes. Well, it was spmewhat sudden. There was a little talk— at least, I heard a little—that Dr. Lewis was courting a woman in St. Williams, and then, all at once, or so it seemed, 1 heard that they had married. She was house-mother at one of the dormitories at the girls' college there. The word lioimc-inotlier put me off, and 1 was surprised, when 1 niet her, to find her barely thirty. Incidentally, you were already here when they were married." "Yes. Around .Christmas. But I'd never met her until three weeks ago." His face had gone stern!' "She seemed so friendly, and pretty— } was shocked to know that she'd tried to kill herself." Dr. Talboy got to his feet, and leaned an elbow on the mantel. "I svas shocked at her reason for doing it," he said harshly, "Shelly —1 don't know what Stephen would ,do under these circumstances J I knpw I'm supposed to care tor his practice, but he Knew me well enough to be su,re 1 would not compromise my own standards of honesty and integrity." «'OI course not, 1 ' stye There was a brief silence In the room, then— "1 am advising Mrs. Lewis," Craig's voice grated, "even before she leaves the hospital, to file sjUt for divorce from Le f wis. He's a sadist;" be that sort," mused Shelly. "Doctors are all sorts of men," said Craig bluntly. She glanced, up in protest. "Oh, yes," he afflrmpd. "You think of ideals, oaths, things of that sort. But on a basis of day- to-day performance, and character ... I've found that doctors run to the average. Here i tf e. have men like your Stephen, nnd all sorts of other men, including Lewis, who, according to my opinion, is not a doctor, and according to all moral standards, is very low as a man. "But the best of doctors don't have, much civic conscience. They won't take a definite stand on issues because that's bad for patient-relationship. Even your fine husband tolerated Lewis. The men here know what he is, but they do nothing about it, and 1 don't call that a very high standard of medical ideals." His tone was alum- bitter, and he stared moodily into the flre. Shelly moved her foot on the velvet cushion of the hassock. "Craig," she said thoughtfully, "why-did you become a doctor?" "I'd not be happy doing anything but medicine—any kind of medicine. 1 don't mind the work there is to it. 1 don't mind living a life made up of case records, test reports, case after case—a steady parade of symptoms,. diagnosis, treatment, until 1 Jive in a sick world, i don't mind that; in fact I love it. The thing i find hard to take are the merchants of medi. cine. The opportunists, The men who use their M.D.'s as a club, a power to gain greater power. A power to bring them money antj prestige, all secured, maintained and defended through regimentation ot practice and thought! Big medicine. That's what I hate, and what 1 fight," He sat staring into the Qre which was falling into red coals. "It's ^.popular, I know," Shelly began, after a minute of uneasy silence, "to—" "To condemn .a!) organised business," he tpolt up her words. »'J don't, though, Shelly. 1 really don't. 1 recognize that it takes brains and courage and imagination to develop a business like the Refractory. And, on the whole, the p.lftflt here is a good organization. Still—" "Have you had argument^?" He shrugged. "They cannot seem to get the men to do spm? ot the things i consider essential to- their health a^d protection,"' "Why can't they? IQ good things ..." { "I think they're goad, an<J company thinks they're good.

He's a big guy, amateur wrestler, handsome. He could be a leader in the plant. As it is, he is a ringleader for trouble. Talks an impressive- sounding jargon of misinformation. Don't know where he gets tl% stuff." "Prom his wife." Craig looked at her sharply. "You know him?" "I've heard Stephen talk to hla father about him. I've heard them say they could manage the plant better if Mrs. Evans didn't belong to so many clubs." , Dr. Talboy thought that one over. "They give programs," Shelly helped him. "The clubs do — baJS them on articles in popular magazines." "I suppose she's heard a program on silicosis — and got it all wrong ..." "Why doesn't the company discharge this .Evans if he makes trouble?" "My dear girl, these days, nobody discharges a n y b o d y." He grinned at her, then pulled his feet toward him and buttoned his co; "The plant haa its troubles, just 1 have mine. Right now, my big one — I'll make no compromise, you know, on this Lewis thing! I'm going to fight for that wife, all the way! I'm going to fight Lewis as a husband, and I'm going to fight him as a ciontorj ' He smiled with relish of that coming fight. "I find in that man a composite of much that is wrong in medicine. Personal morals and integrity have been left too, too far behind, as witnrffc that man's establishment, his pres> tlge, his • freedom to practice with P| the small knowledge anj the big errors which he employs, his power- to hurt and to harm, to kill and to |J cripple, under tho protection of his M.D, Yes, sir, I'm going to fight Brvin Lewis!" "Oh, but, Craig," said Shelly unhappily, "he's an exaggerated case, You won't find many doctors doing —well, the things he did to wife," ^'True, he is an exaggerated case, Shelly. I grant that. But you need an exaggeration to make your point." He stood up; Donald came, stretching, out from under the couch. "I'm going to put that story in the newspaper, Shelly. I came here tfl warn you that I would. Mrs. Lewis will file suit for divorce, giving all the sordid details." He paused in the doorway wh letf to the hall^-and sighed. "I... afraid | can. count on Lewis to spoil roy good fight," he said re* gretfully. /they'll settle t h e prop. erty thing out of pourt: he'll give Ijer y>e djvoree uncontested and he'l town." "Put," said SheUy anxiously. "wau,l4n't tha,t be the better thine-Y tha,t AH around,?" better thing?
