' "."H*- VII ( THE operating schedule was tlic . heaviest of the year. Those : Who clipped schedule shcels lo boards were aware oZ this crowri- .ing; the nurses did the extra dutiej assigned to them; the doctors frowned at their schedules and followed them, moving briskly; Ihe interns hurried a litlle foster. 'i There was no confusion, nnd no patient knew that the Hospital •was especially busy. By eleven o'clock the beds were changed, baths given; the \vnrds stretched out in shining efficiency. The ;whole Hospital reflected lliis air of competent management, and Andrew Woodward was especially [conscious of that perfection. It like fresh icing on one of his mother's round cakes, tempting a small boy to touch the smoothness, :to leave a mark or so— ! v*- *l e ven, .a young man who tfimjicd' bligriily, cain_ and'asked £Dr. Woodward if he would accom- ipany him to Dr. Glenn's office for jan informal Staff meeting. "I'm (Brack, O.B. Assistant," ihc little Jdoctor with the club foot explained. H TPU worV with the great and [wonderful Malcolm?" risked An- jdrew, running a comb through his jalready polished red hair. [•: He turned in time to see the [frown upon Brack's face. "1 think ihe is great and wonderful," the iyoung .doctor said soberly. "So 'will you when you know him. "I have a horrible habit of seeing an idol's feet of clay," the new doctor said pleasantly, opening his office door, standing back for Ihc olhcr man lo precede him. « * • A DOZEN white-coated men were gathered in Dr. Glenn's jig office; (hey luniccl as one man .o look at the new Slaff. Andrew jrinncd widely, his blue eyes crinkling uj> behind bis checks, his 'icavy nndcrlip dropping. He nishcd up the tail of 'his coverall and plunged his hands inlo Ills Irouser poclccts. "Well!" he said. 'A reception." Dr. Glenn came forward.' "It we had nol been so busy, we would lave hnd a band out on the front steps this morning," he said in his Jeep, good voice. "Dr. Woodward, 1 am Malcolm Glenn, O.B., and—" Andrew stretched out an eager hnnd. "No need lo identify yourself, sir. With so many techniques bearing your name, the greenest Medic knows who Dr. Malcolm Glenn is." Malcolm flushed, hesitated "Thank you very .much," he said stiffly. In Ihis hospital, where he worked as hard ns anyone, fulsome praise was not considcrci necessary. He turned lo indicate Ihc dark man al his side. "Ms brolhcr, -Dr. Martin Glenn, diagnostician." He went around the circle—Andrew had a warm handshake, a smiling word .or cad one. He was talking cnlhusias- IIt-ally lo Kramer, his own assisl- ant, when Susan came in from the hall and stopped short, '.ier eyes widening. She pressed her lips, lighlly logclhcr. went over to Malcolm's desk, and worked with th papers there. She heard '">:: Mai cohn introduce Ihe new Stc.(t to Miss Huppcrt "Superinlcudout o Caroline Lchr nurses, Dr. Wood ward. Your boss, as she is lo al of us." Miss Huppcrt bridled; And iiigticri low in nis throat, "i thm.i ve shall gel along," he said. Dr. Alalcohn looked at his wris*. I have a clinic—1 am asking Miss iuppcrt lo lake you around the lospjtal. Doctor. He sure In take lim in to Dr. McAn, Miss llup- "Ycs, Doctor," she said briskly. She smiled at the now .Staff, felt t her back hair, nnd led the way Ml of Malcolm's office. The illicis trailed away. IJALCOLM wenl lo stand al the window, his shoulders unclicd. Susan threw a glance in is direction. Should she lell him hal Woodward had already made is inspection of the Hospital? Vhy hud lie come here, the day bc- ore, posing as a slranficr, and iskcd all his questions? Susan ricd lo remember what she had aid lo him. She had an uneasy eel ing lhal one must be careful vith Dr. Woodward. He had the ir of a innn who would remember casual words, store them up. As Huppcrt led Dr. Woodward !own the hall nnd n cross Ihc obby. she was explaining In Ihe :iew Slnfl Ihc general system ol the Hospital Group. A Manager —not a doctor—was in Ihc main office. Each scparalo hospital had ils complete Slaff, us Caroline Lchr Women's and Children's did. The Staffs met occasionally in joint session; none had jurisdiction over the other. Dr. Malcolm Glenn had served as Acting Chief of Slaff nt the Lair since Pop AlcAn's stroke. 'Are Ihcy going to appoint a new Chief?" Andrew asked. Huppcrt shrugged. "Not imlil McAn himself KUCKcsIs it. He tot Ihe Lchr Foundation for the Hospital group. Nobody will put him out while he's alive." "I sec. And he hangs on as Chief?" "The gossip is that he's wailing until Ihc new orthopedics wing is finished nnd slaffcd. It's possible dial Ihc new Orthopedic Chief will be Hospital Chief. Though McAn is a podiatrist. As you are." Her blue eyes darted lo Woodward's face. He met them boldly. "Thank you lor the lip," he said frankly. (To Be Continued) iT^U Free Delivery Call PICKARD'S GROCERY Phone 2043 1 ()•!!
