FRECKLES & HIS FRIENDS By MERRILL BLOS3ER I He Discreet xxvn GLENN was leaving j ; the Lair, and on his last evc- ining the Woodwards, mother and son, were giving a formal dinner [for the Staff, the invitation \m- iplj'ing honor to the departing Dr. 'Glenn. There had been a liltle isurpriscd comment over the party, jlhough it was a natural, social -thing for the Woodwards to do. In jvarious ways, the Staff members ;had entertained them; this was itheir repayment of a social debt. ;No more might be made of it. [ - -Everyone planned to attend, jfcowever, \yilh more interest than 'similar dinners had aroused. iWonld the Glenns really appcaV? iMalcolm, who must hate Woodward in a particularly deadly -way? Nancy, about whom the •whole Hospital buzzed? Martin, who had never concealed his dis- Jilce for Woodward? No one on the Staff would willingly miss the party. . Malcolm himself was very tired when he went home from the hospital that night, and dragged himself upstairs to dress. Jiminy, he was tired! He'd not go lo the dinner if it were anyone but the Woodwards. Funny, yon could be rude to n friend. To a man you hated as much as he did Andrew Woodward, you had to be meticulously polite. He showered, letting the water run stinging cold at the last, hoping its sharp stimulation would revive him. He shook his head impatiently as he began to get into his clothes; now and then his fingers brushed across his eyes. He heard the door open; he glanced over his shoulder. Nancy was standing against the door, her head back against the while wood, tier eyes shining. "You'd better be getting dressed," Malcolm said, feeling the words stumble on his tongue. "I'm not going to the party, Malcolm," Nancy said carefully. He leaned toward the mirror. 'This dog-goned tie. We have to jo to this parly, Nancy 1 . I don't waul to — any more than you do — jut this is a Staff dinner, and cer- [ainly the AHing Chief and his wife must show up." "You must, you mean," she said, still in that careful way, as if she spoke lines from a play, carefully wrillcn, carefully rehearsed. ,"! don't menu, ever again, lo do nny- Ihing as your wife. Not anything." Malcolm plopped with one slrap of his while braces stretched up and out beyond his shoulder. "What do you mean by IhalV" he aslted stupidly. "Just whalj say," she answered in a thin, hysterical tone. "I'm not going to act as your wife any more, Malcolm. I'm goinft tu divorce you — " lyfALCOLM adjusted t!ic braces, IU - turned lo the bed for hi; waistcoat. "You're cra^y," he mid flatly. "You know you can'l divorce me. You haven't nny reason — for one thing." "You'd better not oppose me! she cried. "H you won't give me a divorce. I warn you that I'll go away with Andrew without one." His vest buttoned awry, Mnl- cohn stood as if turned to stone. Nancy threw the donr open, went out, slammed it behind her. Malcolm rubbed bis linger tips together, looking into the mirror to sec if he could tell how he was doing with the buttons. Waves of light lifted and fell across the burnished glass. His cold, numb fingers fell of the buttons, delected bis mistake. Moving like an old man whoso senses arc dulled, ho lebulloncd his vest. Gropingly, be took up his coat and put it on. Ho managed to find his \valch, snmc tnoney —by touch he got the thick white scarf Nikki had given him, "olded it about his throal, clumsily ml on his top coat. Hal in hand, feeling for the railing, lia ivcnl down (be stairs. His car stood at the curb; he .valkcd past it, being very careful ns he crossed the side streets. He could Icll objecls indistinctly, and ')>• concentrating, lie wondered if ic looked as pea-green as he felt, le hoped nol. Going to this house, joining Hie Stair members there, hoped lo God he would not jctray what be was feeling, show ivhat was happening to him. Could a man sland among the crumbling columns of his life's temple and look as if the roof and walls stood securely about him?. IT it were in nny way possible, Malcolm Glenn wished to appear so tonight. fT was a pale, reserved man in becominti evening clothes who me up on the porch ot the Woodward home, gave his coal and scarf and liat to the white- jackelcd boy in Hie hall, walked across the living room carpel, and extended an icy hand lo the litllo lady in black satin, a fold of lace while against her wrinkled throat. People were about- Malcolm recognized voices, spoke to Dr. Hrnck, and to the Palliologist, Dinkin, and his wife. Me acknowledged Woodward's greeting with sliir lins, a careful tongue. He fell a tug at his sleeve, and gingerly beiit his head lo Mrs. Woodward. "DocLor," pbe said softly, "do you have a headache?" "You are a clever diagnostician," Maleoiin answered. His eyes clearing, he could see her shoulder lift in a shrug. "1 have had migraine—over since Andrew was bciiu," she said quietly. Malcolm made an unintelligible sound. "I'll be all right in a few minutes—" "Yes," she murmured, touching his elbow as if lu guide him. "Step t)iil upon the porch for a little while—the fresh air will be good for you. Dinner will not be announced for a time, and people will not bolher you there."
