The Commerce Department 1 reported that Americans earned an average of $1.200 each—more than double the 1940 average of $575. The department said the total income received in 1946 by individuals was more than $169.000.<MO,000. That was nbout one-tenth higher than the record high of $155,000,000,000 in 1945. Other indications of the nation's prosperity were given in reports by Chairman Maple T. Harl of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. and Harold Lee, governor of the Federal Home Bank System. Harl reported that bank deposits of both individuals and corporations rose "substantially" last year. Lee said that savings and loan associations have paid back 97 per cent of (he money the government invested during the depression to •encourage home construction and purchase. The Commerce Department's report showed that i>cr capita income exceeded wartime highs ini every state except Mississippi and Florida. It fell ofl two per cent in those states between 1D45 and 1040. Delaware was at the head of the list with per capita income of $1.703. Mississippi was at the bottom with ' S555. Flunner-up spot went to New York with 51.G33.

She on the door had stopped, turned the knob and went in, Dr. Woodward at her shoulder. Pop sat in his huge wheel chair in the bay, a book-lillerc' 1 table at his left hand, a radio at his right He snapped the latter off at sight of his callers. "Dr. McAn," said Miss Huppcrl quickly, "this'is the new Pediatric Chief, Dr. Woodward." Andrew strode forward; his hand shot out. Forceful personality blazed from the man. "How .arc you, sir? Jelieve me, it is an hohor to meet Dr. Angus McAn." .Pop peereu at him from beneath - his shaggy eyebrows. "It is, eh? Stand over here in the window ." where I can look at you. And you may as well wipe the smile off your face—I'm too old to bother with charm." Almost hurriedly, Andrew stepped into the window embrasure; his bright cheeks had paled several shades, his blue eyes V»ked hard. "Set a chair for him. Miss Huppert," Pop directed, "and leave . us alone for ten minutes. I want to ; talk with the man who means to lake over my work." Pop fired questions nt him so hick and fast that Andrew felt ike a Medic at his orals. A good .liing he knew his field. A pretender would Klaiul short shrift with this mound of flesh. When the ten minutes was up, ind Miss lluppcrt returned, I'op was advising the new surgeon to 'Hot along with Ihe University I'sychology dcparlment. They do some amazing things with our con- .•alcscont surgical;,." Andrew stood up. "I'll try to work well with everyone, sir. I'll appreciate n chance lo talk things over with you." Pop grunlctl. "Any time. Miss iluppert, show Ur. Woodward the Plant, then let him gel to work. 1 think he's able— or able enough." Out in the hall, Andrew raised a questioning eyebrow to the Sune. "Was that good'.'" he asked. She laughed. "Fine, coming from Pop. Me never did have muel tact. Now he hasn't any." 'T^HEY explored every corner of the big hospital, Miss Huppcrl instructing the new Staff as to custom and routine; she made him ~augh aloud at her comments on the Nursing School and Ihe girls who came under her jurisdiction for six months of their training. "I get them so completely under my thumb that when they graduate and come here to work, they still feel like trainers around me." "You don't look like a tyrant," Dr. Woodward assured her. She bridled. "I have most of the Staff fooled," she assured him. His delightful grin was wide. "Most of it," he repeated. Then he said in a rallying tone, "Speaking of nurses. Miss Huppcrl, you didn't give me any prize package." She looked at him. "Miss Dyson's a good girl," she said carefully. "Oh, good, no doubt. Strong as a horse. And just as attractive." Miss lluppcrt KnuKhcd. "i'ou ar« not supposed lo find your must attractive. " "Don't worry. 1 won't. Now- yon treat Dr. Glenn much Ijcllcr." You mean Dr. Malcolm? Yes, Susan is as prctly a Riri as the Staff can boast, but she's a good nurse, too." "Then why can't I have her?" Miss Huppcrt laughed again. 'Not a chance. She's strictly Malcolm Glenn's property. You ivouldn't be the first to try to get her away from him, and fail. I don't believe one thinks the other caukt function ,-ilone." "Could they?" "Malcolm could. I was his per- ional nurse, until I w;is made Supc. Then lie look on Miss Perry. At Hie lime, he said he couldn't ivork without me." i "I imagine you still are a grcal nclp t to him." "Well. I try to keep Ihe place running smoothly, lie's a very busy man — " They bad come again to Ihe main corridor. Andrew smiled at Miss lluppcrt. "You've been very kind," he thanked her. "And I shall count on your helping me." She looked up at him. "In just what way. Doctor?" His smile was gay. "Oh, you know— put me wise lo all the little, hidden things a Staff dnclor needs to know, sincl which might elude me while I'm strange here. Helri keep me out of hot water." "I think you're smart enough to keep yourself out," she assured him. "But I'll enjoy a gossip with you. now and then." He laughed, low in liis throat. "Good girl!" he said approvingly. As she turned away, his hand resoundingly whacked her well rounded hip. Mi ss Iluppert squealed, jumped a liltle, looked back at the smiling Staff with excited blue eyes, lie nodded, opened his office door,, and went in. But wilh the door handle stilt in his fingers, he slopped shorli his eyes befogged with thought. liis nurse looked up, and Andrew winced. "I'm going to Dr. Malcolm's office," he said quickly, and backed out. He'd Rn speak to Hie Acting Chief about this nurse business. "Why don't you bo nicer to that boy next door when ho visits you? I think you've offended him acting so natural:" FRECKLES & HIS FRIENDS By MEUU1LL BLOS3EH Nice Carload Free Delivery Call PACKARD'S GROCERY I'honc 2043 HIM Chickasuwlm If It's INSURANCE dial 2311 For Complete Protection • Accident & Health • Hospitalization • Fire • Automobile • Liability • Burglary • Plate Glass • Tornado • Surety Rontls • Aviation DITCH A MAM LIKF YOU FOR.TKAT-- - -7MAT NEIGMBOR- Hooo CHILD?
