Dr. Glenn had a ! case he thought Dr. Woodward i would find interesting. Andrew I immediately went down to sil bc: side the handsome walnut-desk : and listen to Dr. Glenn interview • the women who cnme to sit in the ! patients' chair. i Occasionally Dr. Glenn would : send the patient to the inner room; ; after a few mimiles, the two doc• tors would follow, her and make I an examination. Malcolm was cor- i dial to Andrew, explaining situa- ; tions in their intervals of privacy, ; going thoroughly into histories • and side issues, anxious that the i new man become familiar with the ! Hospital policy of dealing with its ' patients. : As the final patient took her departure, he turned, smiling slightly. "Now," he said briskly, "let 1 , get up to the operating room." : Andrew Woodward stood at Mie : side of the operating room and ; watched Dr. Glenn examine 1 case before a class of Senior Mcd| ics. lie looked about at the intent '. faces of the students, noting their tense arms, their unblinking : eyes. They watched Malcolm •• work as U they looked on at a god ibont to perform a miracle. Dr. Woodward felt in his own icart that the miracle would be 'orlhcoming. This was a surgeon here at work, a man who was ^ood, who needed no conceit, no bragging advertisement of his skill. Andrew Woodward had a nerve to think he could compote with such a man. As be must compete, if he meant to become Chief of Staff of Caroline Lehr. In this moment, standing against the gleaming wall of the operating room, the patient snoring comfortably under the anaesthesia, the baby wailing thinly in Dr. Glenn's hands, Andrew knew that be wanted to be Chief more than he mil ever wanted anything in his life. No—what be really wanted was Glenn not to be Chief. • * * TJACK in his own office. Andrew •checked the day's ubrk with Miss Dyson. The nurse asked him liow he liked working with Dr. Malcolm. "An exceptionally fine surgeon," said Andrew quickly, heartily. "Yes, he is!" Miss Dyson echoed. "And such a fine mau r loo. 1 mean, he's h u in a n — lots of doctors aren't." "Do you mean he has bis weak spots?" "Oh, no!" cried the big, homely woman, her face flushed. "I didn't mean that. 1 meant he always lias time to be interested in people." Andrew took up the house phone to check over his wards before lie went home As he i-.iikccl. ns he waited, be was thinking, if Glenn's human, he docs have weak spots. We all do. If he's a mai as well as a surgeon. I can fiiw these spots and work throng! them. If I am very Rood, he'll no be Chief, and I will be. If I'm onlj pretty good, he'll still not be Chief I wonder what kind of man Glcm is. I'd have to see him out of the lospital to find out—nee him In lis home, with his family. Those ttraciive people framed iu silver ipon his desk. Kven a dr>g. was \ere. Yes, a man was human who ;ept a framed picture of his dog ipon his FTIS shining head bare, Andrew Woodward strode away from he Hospital toward the lights ol ho town and the East Campus. Vt the far end of the bridge across he river that divided the enm- )ii= ho caught up with a woman n a tweed sport coat. A wcll-lai- oied sport coat. Below it pretty, lim legs and trim, narrow walk- nt' pumps. A glint of pale gold tair beneath the forward-tilled am. The woman glanced at him, i rut Andrew bowed. "Mis. Glenn, is it not?" he asked, charming hesitation in his voice. !Vho slender woman smiled. She lad lovely, starry gray eyes. "Why, »'cs," she agreed—and wailed. "I am Andrew Woodward. I recognized you from the picture on your husband's desk." "Oh. Then you must be the new taff doctor." "I must be," Andrew agreed, falliiu; into step beside her. "I was out for exercise and air—nnd to Bel a good look at this beautiful campus." "It is beautiful." she said. "A 'inc. natural setting of hills and river, a happy combination oE old buildings and new. Do you think you will like it here, Dr. Woodward?" "I'm sure of it—now," he said, his voice dropping, his very blue eyes never leaving her face. Nancy's gloved hand went to the edge of her coat. Her lips parted, and her eyes shone. "I've nol had such obvious nailery in many years, Doctor," she said gaily. lie chuckled. "Obviously admiration lias always been your lol." be twisted her words. "Would that building be the Student Union? Could one buy a drink?" She laughod. "A very mild ctrink. Chocolate mailed, or a confection called a Ituppa Special." "Chocolate malted sounds exciting enough in the right company," Dr. Woodward replied.
