The audience upon the en cling benches was^ as 'enthralled. Al sight of Dr. Glenn, the nurses, bolh blues, and whiles, sat forward and drew in their breaths a litlle. The students and Ihe other doctors settled themselves more comfortably upon the thin cushions which only stemed to soften the stone benealh Iheir spines. All eyes were upon the tall man in white. For a second this gaze turned to the nurse who tied the mask about his nose and mouth But when Dr. .Glenn moved, the eyes returned to him, and stayed with him. The lights went on; he stepped to the table, spoke to the Head, to the anaesthetist, glanced at the chart, looked up at the fcenches He began lo speak, to lecture, explaining the case—a matter of high blood pressure, i He took care of the-delivery. Thejbaby was born, taken to the side table, the pediatrician look charge Next weeli, the new man, iWooduard, would be there. Today, Dr Glenn must watch this doctor, barely out of school. Between cases, Dr. Glenn lectured Twice, . as he talked, lie jerked bis head as i( to shake his hair out of his eyes. Once he 'fighed deeply.

So, r.toaay, when Dr. Glenn stopped for a minute and looked dov<n at his while .shoes, heads {went up, hands paused, all .over , Ihe room. Susan came swiftly to (his side, went with him into Ihe iscrub-iip room. Behind, them, sig- jfiificant glances were exchanged. I "What's up?" said the sopho- ;more Medic, who was marking his jfirst o b. observation in his log.

Indonesian guerrilla bands were attacking Dutch patrols in Uie area of hostilities closest to Jogja- karta, the Republican capital. The daily communique renewed the charge that the Indonesians still were ignoring the cease fire order issued at the request of the United Nations. "A clear tendency is observed to push forward their lines and force the population to take a non-cooperative attitude toward the Dutch," the communique said.

The child was born, swiftly, safely, and withoul a mark or a scratch upon him. Those in Ihc operaling room breathed a relaxed, relieved sigh. Dr. Malcolm Glenn held- his attention to the business slill in hand. Finished, he shrugged his chin out of his face mask, looked up at l|ie class, nodded, glanced al his brother; one could see' Ihc spark of affection ss between Ihem. He went with Martin and Susan»inlo the scrub- up room. "Veil!" said Ihe sophomore. "So that's what a headache will do for you!" "The right kind of headache," agreed the senior.
