NDREW WOODWARD was not L .'.. . .a man to act upon.uncon- x ;sidered impulse, or should lie do 'So, lie quickly adjusted his flcl- ".'_ !:var«e with plans and purpose such as would make his future progress : satisfactory. So it was in the matter of .Ivan Gregor. He had mentioned the name first to Pop and ;Dr. Glenn through idlo impulse. •The reaction had been so complete, Glenn had so obviously been ' " ^upset by his interference, thai il -hud at once appeared to be the : peitect line of attack. .Gregor's name, well-known, ad;B*i«Kl, broughl up by Woodward 'at the coming Directors' meeling, ! surely obscure the name of nil's unforlunate, unknown -—ffwid. The Directors would ail- point Gregor, would be grateful lo Woodward for securing such man for the Ilospilal SlalT. But there was one possible hitch, and it was Andrew's inlcnUon to .x^ftiove that knot. He must know "• b£f.4rehand if Gregoi- would accept , 'axrAill to the post at the Caroline . j*hv Orthopedic wing. There was • ,rtolpoint : in Woodward's making a " '^{it for him at the meeting, only ". tp (have him refuse the position. •Chi the other hand, should Grcgor he 1 disposed to accept, it svould .be'well if from the first he understood that, he came to Ibe Lair under Woodward's sponsorship. So, one week-end, Andrew wenl to the Children's Clinic in Chi- .cago which Gregor and live other specialists conducted wilh Ire- ; niendous success, identified himself to Gregor's secretary, nnd seated hirnself in the waiting room while she inquired whether Dr Gregor would see Dr. Woodward "piIB secretary came back and asked Dr. Woodward to follow icr. She led him through-a lUcd hall, into the elevator, out again into another hall; she .opened a door and stepped aside, saying softly, "Dr. Woodward." The room into which Andrew stepped was small, and cell-like in its austerity. It contained a steel desk, a chair. On the desk \vas a telephone, and a ncn in a stand. In the chair sal a man—a slender, homely man with dark hair. ' At sight of Andrew, he got quickly to his feet, his haiui oul- slrclchcd, his faco alight. And that face ih animation seas like no face Andrew Woodward had ever seen. The brown eyes shone, the big mouth—well, something happened to it. Something happened to the whole man. A person— Andrew or anyone else—meeting Gregor, fell that this was the biggest man he had ever seen. His voice was deep ;i'id rich, his smile not Hashing, but so warmly con- idcnt, his hand clasp so sine- Dynamic! Tha 1 . was the word Andrew wanted. In a daze, Andrew identifier limself lo Gregor, accepted th [Irink offered, answered the questions of the alertly listening specialist. Heck, he hadn't guessed Crregor would be this sort. A good doctor—ludas, yes! Dut not this —this type of person. What sort of man was this to bring to the Lair? Ur. Woodward rather regretted (he day he bad been inspired to mention Grcgor's name. He looked up now, and smiled ruefully. "I'm uwfully afraid I made this trip- ami asked for your valuable time —because of a wild-goose chase, Doctor," lu: said diffidently. "I can't imagine any man with the facilities of a clime such as you have here listening lo the oiler of a hospital Stair job." "Were you about to offer m* inch a job?" Gregor asked alertly. Andrew laugr.etl, his heavy inderlip jutting. "It isn't in my lower to oiler it. I did mean ,o present your name at a Direc- .ors' meeting next week—and, of course, the offer would then, be mule to you. ' I came to sound you out—but I can see that you would not consider sueli a thing." • • • T)UT why do you decide that for me'.'" the' other man asked quietly. Tlis voice was like velvet —but there was a quality in it— or perhaps it-was his steady eyes —that demanded, an answer. Andrew shrugged. "Your clinic s loo fine—and you arc your own boss here." "No doctor is his own boss, as you know." He spoke English perfectly, this Russian doctor, but wilh n crisp litlle accent that was very attractive. "Do I imderi. stand you correctly—this position which might be open to me is that of Orthopedic Surgeon in a new department of. the Caroline I.ehr Hospital?" "That's right," said Andrew, ahnosl sulkily. Dr. Gregor set his half-full glass' aside, got lo his feel, "f would like very much to work wilh your Dr. Glenn," he sairl firmly. "In my opinion, Malcolm Glenn has done mure, will do more, for obstetrics than any contemporary. I have my own theories about pre-. natal care—and the lack of it. I think Glenn and I together might much lo put chaps in your specialty end mine. Woodward, completely out of business." lie walked Andrew toward the door. He helc! out his hand. "Thank you for coming to see me. I believe *you • may tell your Directors that I would consider an? fl'er they care to make to me, and you may explain, if you wish, il is because 1 admire Dr. Glenn so very much. I really envy you. Dr. Woodward, your present opportunity lo work wilh such a man.". He smiled Klightly, and left the deflated Dr. Woodward alone in (he tiled hall.
