The dark lilile (lal became tlic sj'mbol of what it meant to face a precarious future, even, with the man you loved.. The place was cluttered with baby things, Bill's eyes were wor- j'ied even when lie laughed. Amy Ellen w;\s thin and haggard, her pretliness gone. Jn the bedroom, pitiful with its cheap iittcmpts at beauty, she ci'jed and (old Mavjan that Dill had lost his job, thai she was frightened foi- the liny lj;iby who needed so niany lhiiii<s, expensive things like orange juice ;md cod liver oil and special milk. On the homeward drive, Marian had been thoughtful. Al last she had said, "D<in, I think I'd better keep my job for n while—until we get a little saved." "K'ot on your life," Dan had burst out. "I'll do the doing at our house. When I look at you I want to know that I bought your pretty dress and yolu' cute shoes, that I buy your food nr.c! pay for the roof that covers the two of us." "I know how you fee!, but—but look at Bill and Amy Ellen. They can't be happy, they're wasting the years when they should be happy, being frightened. It got me, Dan. Amy El]er> was so pretty, they were in love like we are." Dan gravely stopped the car and took her in his arms. "They are still in love, Glad. Bill loves Amy Ellen a thousiiiui times more than he did when everything was rosy. He's got something to fight for, Amy Ellen and the baby, he's the head of a family. He'll come through, take my word for it. IX she hangs on and believes ia him, he'll come out sailing." * t n "OUT Marian hadn't been able to see it, she could see only the poverty and fear. She had said, "Please, Dan, be reasonable. If we both work—if we both cam—' He broke in. "It sounds all right, but it isn't. There's a fundamental law'about marriage. The man provides the home and the wonian keeps it for. him. Trying to ic;okc' things easier and pleasanler for his wife, trying lo give her lovely things, is the incentive a man must have to succeed. \Vhen he's at work ho wants lo know lhal his wife it at home, expecting him to make good. Can't you sec % Glad?" "Yes, but—" He put 'his hand over hers. 'And babies. Glad—babies don't come io a couple who arc both working. There isn't time—the! •ight time—" : She pulled her hand away. "A baby wouldn't have a chance—not on $35 a week. Babies need things —nice little beds and carriages' and—and things." "A baby needs her mother, Glad. It's up to her father to provide the bed and things." Marian said, halt laughing "We're certainly looking ahead Pan." ' "But you want a baby—a lillle fiirl?" "Why a girl? I thought men always wanted sons." "1 don't know—girls ure so cunning—I think I should love my little girl best.'?. The conversation terrified Miir- ian. You fell in love with ;i man, you promised to marry him. Then, all of a sudden, you were considering other lives. She could not got past the drab picture of Bjll and Amy Ellen. She wen(. back to the firs! point of the argument. "We're young, Dan. We can wait a year or so. I'll keep my job." "No." "Just a year!" "No." "You're stubborn and horrid." "How about yourself?" "You're no.t the only one getting married. I have a right to say something about it." "II has to be settled one time or another. In a year you'll be a little more accustomed to having money, you'll find an excuse io work another year. I've seen loo many marriages wrecked that way." "H really loved me you'd let me dp as I want to." "And if you loved me, you wouldn't measure our life with a dollar sign." Their two voices had became high-pitched and hard. ' Marian said, "We're quarreling Dan." "Oh, no—" They clung together, horrified by the first clash of wills. In nn agony of love they promised never to disagree again. gUT they had disagreed. The d ; frerencc would not stay in Ihe background. It cropped up like an ugly weed,'crowding out the ccstccy, forcing itself between them. Neither would give pn inch. Al last, one night in early October they had reached the end. "There's no justice," Marian had cried angrily aflcr a futile argument. "You are ambitions and so am I. You plan to go on, giving up nothing, getting everything. I'm supposed to do all the sacrificing," She had slopped, miserably unhappy. "If lhal's Ihc way you feel about Marian would never forgel how she had flung back her head, "i intend to work for a year at least. If you care lo marry me under those conditions—" It had been her last card, she had held it back, cerlain that it was the high trump. Dan had looked at her, his eyes like cold steel. He had done with coaxing and persuasion. "You've made the rules," he had said. * * a few hours of scornful pride, then days of waiting, finally uumb anguish. Marian could never remember those days when Dan neither called nor waited for her at tho building entrance, without » spasm of pain. The agony had been so real as to carry across Ihe years. Ten days passed. Marian's flac of independence tell on ;i Saturday morning and sho called Dan. Ho wailed for her at iicon. Without. a word, she slipped her hand into his and they walked along LaSallc street, unmindful of the hurrying crowds, unaware that another living soul existed. They walked straight lo the courthouse. On the way, Marian said, "You win,.Dan. I can't stand it." He said, "Thank you, dear. Trust me for a little while. I'll make 't up to you." Marian found glory in defeat, pride in Don's strength of will'. After the short ceremony which made her Dan's wife, she had called Grant Fellows. She would not be back to the office any more, she had been married. They had spent a beautiful week-end at Michigan Cily, returning to a liny furnished apartment. There had been an interval of such complete happiness that Marian, silting in the cheap little car beside a strangely remote Dan, could not remember Hie time without a quivering ache in her hfju-t.' ^A'ant anything for tjinncr?" Dan asked as they approached a market. Marian came back to llie present with a thud. When before had she allowed herself the uncertain luxury of day dreaming? Memories shattered the defensive wall she had built around herself. She would never look back again —never. i.— (To Be Continued) THE FAMILY DOCTOR Paticnls Imitate Illness in Hysteria To Escape Unpleasant, Silualions K V I)K. illOKIlIS FISHKEIN Editor. .Imirnat of the Amr.rir.iii M c il i c a 1 Association, ;m<l of llyffcin, the Health i>I:i^azin? The essential cause of hysteria is that an attack gives Ihe person concerned a means of gratifying n wish or escaping from r<n un- "ilcaso.iil situation without b;ing Definitely aware of the fact Iha't .hat is why his illness is occurring. Most doctors say persons who hi\vc hysteria come from families in which there is a uinrtuvy tc'A'a.rd mental disturbance. Ofl".n hi Ihc family there is a trec!;- ground ot faulty tcainins in child- nood. v In most, instances the basis oi hysteria is seme emotions i situation in which the illness or the simulation of illness, -is the only \vny In which the patient 0311 get! jut of the trouble.

There Is hardly uny disease which hysteria may not sician said, "\'QU get the feeling that you are dealing with two people in the same body—one of (hem wants to get well und the ether docs not." The most important step in ths cure of hysteria is to make an absolutely accurate diagnosis and to be certain that there is nothing really wrong physically. The next move is to endeavor by suggps- ticn, persuasion or the use of ?sy- chcannlysis to gel the iiafeni to understand the nature of "the cqn- dilicn.
