At regular intervale she went into .the r -small room wlvere Dr. Glenn slept, his face white =nd drawn, utterly weary, somewhat pathetic in the helplessness of dee p, •drugged sleep. But, even in sleep, .the. two' deep lines, remained be ;tween his brows — as if he •frowned. Susan and Martin had loosened his clothing; he might ;b«:more comfortable if he were in night clothes, but Susan would hot risk waking him. She went back to the shaded lamp, to the small fire, to tnc evc - nintf paper which an aide" brought in. '.'.'.•'''.

Mac's portrait sat in silver frame ~ on the wide desk tlong * ith Nancy's picture, an Ihe child rep's.' Nancy said,"*'Be still, everybody Please! 1 ? irid then she spoke int the phone.. "Miss Perry?"

She took the cover from ic plate of creamed chicken. For ic first time she saw the wife's ide of this doctor-nurse rclation- tiip. Nancy was a lovely person, nd' sensible. She probably knew lat Malcolm adored her; she Idn't bother about his work, sel- om set foot in the Hospital. Yet—Susan could keep his wife way from Mrlcolm, if she though »6t. And Nnncy was helpless. On le other hand, if Susan called Dr }]enn at home, Nancy would no opsider objecting. In n way, hi ffice riursc is closer to a special st than his wife. • • • ' ' T HE outer door opened a cati tlous inch, then sproaii widclj q admit Miss Huppcrt, Superin endeht of Nurses.

"He nstte not to be disturbed, MUs Hup ;>crl T " she said quietly. Miss Uupperl was a large worn an, and handsome, tier gray ha was curled beautifully, her ski was. clear pink and while. He uniforms were beautifully cut, an her cap becoming. Her rnthr.r ligl blue eyes now looked coldly upo Susan. "How is he?" she demanded. "Sleeping. Dr. Martin gave hi gyncrgine." "1 see. I'm Lfraid—" "Dr. Martin said he was not to disturbed, without calling him •st," Which was not strictly true, ough Martin would have said it he had thought it neces*aiy. Miss Huppcrt came over to the sk. "It certainly balls things up have the Acting Chief dead to e world." Susan looked sympathetic. Or— narily. Huppcrt would be off uty at this timu of night. "McAn's no good," the Stipe Id. "Ho Just says ask Glenn." She snifTcd at the red rosebuds tlio silver vaso. "I'll certainly e sla,d when Woodward comes. young Chief of Stuff will be a t easier to talk to than McAn." But is Woodward going to be hlol? 1 thougr.t—" "You think what Glenn thinks, e feels being Acting Chiet. with lot of patients squawking for m, is enough—"• .,., • • » "-"Sl^l- IUSAN looked angrily at the Sune. Huppcrt admired Glenn anatlcolly, but there was frustra- on. too, which showed itself in csenlment of Dr. Glenn's aulhor- .y as Acting Chief, and as the lost popular man in the entire ospilal group. Susan, his chosen >ersonal nurse, replacing Huppert n that job, often had felt the esull of this resentment reflected upon her. "1 hadn't heard that Dr. Wood- vard—" Susan said nrw^ faintly. "Look, Perry. Don't be blind on purpose. Woodward is coming to lo Pop's work, isn'v he? Chief iccliatrician. Well! When the or|hopcdics wing is finished, he'W ake over all ol McAn's job—and jc Chict of Staff. And then what, of your precious Dr. Malcolm?** Jealousy of Susan gleamed in her eyes. She nodded her lunclsome head emphatically. "Things arc going to be a bit different around here when Woodwjrd comes," Huppcrt promised, going out ol the room. Susan stood looking at the door. What if she were right? Why hadn't McAn made Malcolm Chief? She understood the old man's hanging on to his title, to his nominal power.—but if Woodward came and took over I'op's duties— (To Be Continued) New Industries Located in Arkansas TjlTPLE ROCK, Ark., Aug.
