Something's wrong, bul definitely." "It must've b«en catching," Bill srumblcd. Belly Jane had refused to let him hold her hand In (he (healer. "WliaCs it to you?" lie asked. "What makes you think something's wrong?" "I feel it in my bones." Betty Jane returned loftily. The idea of Bill asking what it was to her! Anything that went on in Dr. Holbrook's office was Betty Jane's concern. "Nothing's the same," she added, thinking aloud. She wished there were some way she could reason out the change that she felt had token place during the last few weeks, and talking sometimes helped. "For instance?" Bill inquired. onc He knew that Betty Jane, started on any subject, could not easily be persuaded to drop it. "For instance," Betty Jane s.iid. "Dr. Holbrook. lie's different, somehow. He seems kinda worried about something. 'Course it could be his wi/e she's In France, Tree Furnilhed Pipe In Neu' Guinea, when U.

"It miglii be Miss Hilary—Aunt Mame thinks it is—and 1 did give them a start (lie other day." Belty Jane was thinking aloud again. "U was when I wenl to the utility room and there they were, Hie i doctor and Jmiice, and 1 couldn sworn they were holding hands. Anyhow, he dropped hers CHiick- like, and they both had the funniest, guiltiest look on their faces." •our Aunt Maine tench it's polite always lo knock?" Bill grinned at catching Betty Jane up for a change. Betty Jane ignored him with a look. Then she shook her hcnd. "No, it couldn't he thai," she decided. "Though they do act funny, almost loo polite, as if they were were sore at each Miss Willows was or strangers other. But wrong. "What's Willows got to do with il?" "She said there was no man Janice might marry. there Is." Betty Jane's broadened with satisfaclion. But mile "Yeah?" Bill prompted. He hnd become slightly interested, against his will. "lie came lo Ihe office," Betly , Jane confided. She rcslcd both elbows on (he table, lier blue eyes dreamy. "And say, is he a right guy! Tali — musl be over six-two — and broad j-hnulder. 1 -: like a football slar. He fcmda looks like a cross between Cary Grant ami Van Johnson, if you know what I mean." "Sounds screwy, if you ask me. Those two look nothing alike." Bill was only five feet five and he knew he did not resemble any movie or football star. "Which proves Miss Willows Is :dl wi-l," HHly Jane said. "Anyhow, it proves Junico could rcsiiiu "no gel married, if she wished." * • • "J-JOW 'boul ns?" Dill felt he hurt been patient lonj; enough. II was time ibe.v got around lo themselves.

"Yc.ili, you been tcllins; me that for almost five ycors now. Nothing snappy iiliout that, to my way of thinking." "You know I wunt to work ai my profession nt leasl one full year." 'Oh, rats!" Bill grumbled. "1 don't want you to turn into «n office nurse; trial's the same tt an orllcc wife," 'I never heard of such a thing," Belly Jane s:iid with a little of assumed indignation. Then a look of understanding lighted her face. "Unless thai was what Miss Willows meant," she murmured, nodding her head ns though she had come to a conclusion, "when she said Janice Hilary would never leave Dr. Holbrook and that it was a pity. She must hove meant that Janice has got so she's almost an ofllce wife because she's such wonderful cilice nurse." "Arc they thai way aboul each other?" Bill asked, gave a hang. "Dr. Holbrook and Janice? A short while back I'd have suid no. Now I'm not so sure. They did look that wny Ibnt day. Dm I hope they aren't. 1 hope Janice marries that nice fellow—Hie one that looks like Van Johnson, only bigger like Cary Grant." She gave a sigh. A big sigh. "1 think, like Miss Willows -mid especially now that I've seen Ihc other one— it would be an »wtul pity."
