(UP) — Franklin D. Roosevelt Jr., national housing chairman of the American 1 Veterans Committee, said today llial, the American Legion liad "deserted the American veteran once again" by refusing to endorse the Taft- Ellender-Wagiicr housing bill at its national convention. Roosevelt made his statement at a jjint-press conference \vltli Chat Paterson, National chairman or tliu AVC, who said that :lie Legion's op- lx)3ition to any inlernational control of atomic energy "will inevitably provoke a third svorld war. tvhich will completely destroy ur'oan ami Industrial society." An AVC statement criticizing the j Legion's .proposal to amoncl the con- , stitution to deny protections o[ the bill of rights to »:iy person accused of proni'jtuig the overthrow of Hie government by force also was . issued at the conference. Roosevelt said ;ihat the Legion under commander Paul H. Griffith "has b:cn the principal errand boy on Capitol Hill for the powerful real estate lobby." "Real estate interests, Dig building construction interests, and building suppliers arc belter icpre- 'sratal on the American Legion housing committee than arc the veteran consumer interests," he said.

Andrew wcs'thc .sort of man to .speak flatteringly to any woman. _Hc had much to gain from a friendly altitude on lluppert's part. It was second nature for him 'to polish the apple whenever the chance occurred. So he said out^_ .rageous tilings to lluppert, called •her Sweetheart most of the lime. gave her small gifts — a pair of red gloves to match a red hat he .made fun of, a box of hoarhotmcl 'the day she was speechless with laryngitis, a bouquet of dandelions ;picked from the terrace of the .Hospital lawn. He flallcred her •boldly, and beyond all rcr.son. [lluppert lapped up his exlrava- Igant praise as a 1: it ten laps cream. ( The week allcr his. rebuff from (Susan, Andrew invited Miss Hup- ipcrt to have dinner with him ;at AngclrocU's. "11 musl be good. ,-It's out of bounds for Ihc stu- jdents." i "It's good," Huppcrt assured 'him. 1 They discovered thai the place ^vas crowded with students. "\VeYe ,lhe blindest people you ever ;knew," she warned Andrew. ! "I hope they're blind, loo," lie Igrinned. "It won't help my reputation Eny to have it told I was .. .here with you."

Her full besom bulged ahnve Ihc sequin yoke of her black dress. Her face ivas carefully made up. Ihc lips arched into a .ieif:ct cupid's bow; her hair was curled intricately. "Sugar," she said carefully, "when a pirl spends her days hi a uniform and a little starched cap, she blossoms ::ny time and anywhere she gels a chance." The lighting was dim: closely (wined ngmx-.} danced to Ihc music of. a small orchcslra enthroned at the end bt the room. The food was good, r.ud drink plentiful., lupperl talked happily to Andrew ibout hospiui] gossip, completely covering boUi sides of the CIUGS- ion of whether they'd lake a girl nturn iu O.U. next your. "A woman really should not try o he a doctor," Itupperl said solemnly. "Plenty of other fields 'or> her in the profession. Nothing iVrbtig with nursing, is there?" Her round blue eyes challenged lim. "Nol Ihe way you do il, Sweetheart," he murmured. "Not the way anybody does i 1 .!" ihe declared. "I don' hoar any complaints from you about Susan Perry. Look, Doc, yon dcm't like her bctter'n you do me, du you?' "I'm here tonight wilh you,' Andrew pointed out. "Yeah, t know. I conkln lok you you wouldn't get anywhere with her." ; "You mean I'm not attractive;?' "You're wonderful. Hoc. Uu Susan—didn't you know she i: engaged?" Andrew's eyes blinked. "Is she? 1 "Well, she dot'sn'l wear n rinf bul I gucrs you would say she am Martin Glenn have an understand ing." Andrew's Adam's apple slid up his throat, and down. Again he fell that hot resentment against Marl in. The devil, he'd not guessed! What a thing for him to miss, what a chance — And he'd been Kearching for Glenn's vulnerable spot. Of all Ihc bungling. . . . So that was why he'd got nowhere with Susun! for Ati- '•iT'D hnvc said her yen was Martin's brothe-'r," said drew, carefully. Me watched I Sup- pert over the rim of his glass. "In fact, I did .say that to Susan." Miss Iluppcrl giggled. "Oh, you idn't!" "I did. I really thought she was ii love with him." "What did she say?" "Oh, something about worship- i>B the ground he walked on, but n a pure sort of way." Huppcrl chuckled. "She is— veil —devoted to Dr Malcolm. I'll rant that. In fact, it's pretty candalous, that devotion. When spends the night at the llos- )ilal, as he does sometimes—he IBS a bedroom in his ofllcc suite —only Miss Perry can go to his •oom.

"If he were going lo be Chief, I'd think he'd be that already, wouldn't you'.'" "Well—Pop's still alive." "Just." "He's smaller than you Ihink, Doc.
