"During vacation Junior was up at dawn clamoring for breakfast, but now I have to call him a dozen timesf Do you think he's studying too hard?" FRECKLES & HIS FRIENDS By MERRILL BLOS3ER .Money Mad xxvi WITH the nerves of several of its members stretched to the limit, ;md all the doctors feeling as if they walked upon etfgs, the Staff and Directors met lo conduct ;uch business as had accumulated. j The meeting was csyecinlly sig- [nificimt because the orthopedic swing wns nearly ready to be put | into use, and today, surely, would | be settled the important position iof Staff Surgeqn, Today, each ar• riving member was noticeably til- jiUaicd lo find Dr. McAn seated Jin his wheel chair at one end of (the long table. Did his presence ;mean his resignation, the appoinl- Iment of his successor as Chief of iSlaff? ; Routine business of finances, jpalient-reports, and so forth, was [quickly disposed of. The Chairman paused for a pregnant inin- jute,. and looked down the table lo »where Martin Glenn sal, his dark Ihpad back, his eyes ludf r closed. i Pop fbinbled in his box for a (tissue; Malcolm's hand steadied ilhe container for him. "Blasted : shame," Ihe old man muttered. Martin was on his feet, standing at ease. He glanced at Mal- jcolm, then turned his attention to '.the Chairman. "I've nothing more lo say, sir, than is in the letter nt your hand. That lefler .offers rny resignation lo the Board and states my reasons for doing so." i He sat down. ! Malcolm made a soft sound in this throat. The Chairman nodded >lo him and Malcolm stood up. ."May ! suggest that— er— Dr. ;Glenn's resignation be changed to a request for a leave of absence?" 'He turned to glance at his brolher. > Martin nodded, his cheeks red. |"I'1I gladly agree to thai change," ihe said quickly. ;A : some discussion of possible replacements for the diagnostician, the chairman opemta Ihe subject of the Staff appointment for the Orlnopedic Department. II* rti.-ido a little speech, explaining that this man would he on a par with Dr. Malcolm Glenn in the Women's department, thai the pediatric surgeons and physicians would work with him as the various- gynecologist:; worked with Malcolm. He glanced down at his papers. "I have several letters of application for the position. I think it would be desirable to entertain discussion from the members present of any names they would care to present." This was routine procedure; this was the. way such men as Andrew Woodward hart been chosen to serve the Hospital. Someone suggested that the Chairman read his letters of application, and he did so. Then Malcolm asked for the floor, and the Chuirnum sat down. Malcolm talked easily and well Ic mentioned the name of Dr barrel!, now Resident Orthopedic •Surgeon in an Orcyon hospital. He isted Barrett's school, his degrees )is hospital affiliations. He dropped the paper from whicl lad read this data, and looked about, the table, his eyes smiling. "George Barrett is my friend," Lie said. "I went to school with intn. 1 have known him ever since. I have seen the suit of doctor he is. The professionals iu this room know that certain dor lors have an especial gift which is beyond Irain- ing and experience. 1 saw thai gift present in George Barrett." He talked on, frankly admitting that Barrett's professional advancement, his fame, had been retarded by personal misfortune. "But he is still an especially line surgeon. I give you my word that you would make no mistake in appointing him." He sat down. The Chairman thanked him, and nskcd, almost mechanically, for liscnssion. His altitude was that they must all accept Dr. Glenn's opinion. ... f\R. WOODWAHD made a diffident sound. The Chairman .ooked loward him. "Yes, Doctor?" The big red-headed man slowly rose to his feet. He stood there for minute, seeming to consider and choose hir, word*. "I would he the ast one to <|tie:-lion the fact lluit Dr. Glenn has Ihe welfare of Ihe Hospital at heart. If he had asked for the appointment of his friend — ux such—I should have agreed silence. If the mailer is to be solved on a coldly professional oasis, I am sure Dr. Clic'tm would object to my failure lo mention the man he know.^ 1 liavc in mind for the position under consideration. I have discussed this matter with him, and he agreed (hat the man I will name is eminently filled. So—for the good of the Caroline Lehr Hospital for Women anil Children, toward its efficient service, and ils increased prestige, I offer for your consideration the name of Dr. Ivan Gregor of the Children's Clinic in Chicago." lie paused, standing easily, to let the men at the (able nod to each other and buzz over the name he had dropped like a stone into the muddied waters of the meeting. Malcolm .slumped into his chair, defeat plaiu in his face. He scarcely listened lo Woodward's clever exposition of Gregor'a desirability. What point was there in telling all that? Enough at Ihe table knew nboul Gregor, recog- nised his eminent position in orthopedics, to insure the man's sc- Icclioti. It was Martin who asked if there was any chance of the Lair acquiring this paragon. Woodward assured him that Gregor would accept the call. He had, it seemed, taken the precaution nf going lo Chicago anil sounding him out. Malcolm sat and watched what was going on in futile rage. Ho scarcely knew when the vote was taken, the result overwhelmingly in favor of calling Dr. Gregor to Ihe post.
