"A mis- Sake like thht is bad enough, but I don't have to pretend to you— is worse. First you know the hospital gels su*d" "C\ come, Mr. Cota, you're always worrying about possible lawsuits." | Maxwell Cola d been su| •- intendent of the Angels University Hospital for 10 years, and h had come to regard it as a constitutional monarchy _,over which, or course, it was he who kinged it., • * * I QUS LCGAN did not begrudge the supcrin.. .dent's po\vor, which derived from a local olili- cnl entrenchment. He himself was aloof from hospital r-l .ics but he was nol '-iof • Igh — the comi>cr^ntor> posturing of little men tc let pass the superintendent's query. "It's our hospital If . yon know." he said, "nnd we all have its interests at heart. But'I can assure you tha; in this case there's io Question of a lawsuit. The patient's a nice, intelligent Buy—n gentleman. I explained the thing to him and t ie him dov.-n. Also, because the nurse w;is honest enough to own up to the slip, no harm was done. You '3! pome more nurses up on that lloor. and I'm sure things will strniflliien ut up there." "It's no! all." the superintendent s.-iirf. He handed Gus the top sheet o' a nnifonn sloct: oT papers piled on his desk. "The • • oath fight is nol quile closed yel. Read this one." Gus glanced through t' icct hurri ly. Us c- -•<: n-er^ familiar to him. All the tl-sctor anci nurses and employes of Ihe hospital had signed similar hcets and turned them i -'nosl Isvo weeks ap.

He hi. been obliged to spare severaJ taxing evening! to the Ioys!ty-oath controversy. He had thought the matter settled, a dead issue. Now here it was - gain when what he wanted iiost v ? to pick up his wife and get home in time for a Jeisurely r' ^er "... fore the meeting tonight. His eye skipped to the bottom of the page: "Peter Surinov" in black thick Urokes of a stub pen. In the lower margin of the printed form was a handwritten postscript: "Nor am I a membe- o[ the Klux Klan." Gu* supnr:ssed a sigh and a slight twin"' of amusement at the succinctness of the notation. • • » T-TE dropped the paper onto the desk and looked up, wholly unprepared for the extremity of anger which charged Maxwell Cola's face and body. Cota stood crouched over the desk like a jockey over a horse. Nature had unnecessarily crowded the small features, and the olive skin, now empurpled, was deeply convoluted so that tho effect was of a nu'red cabbage in which the dark eyes were active as insccis, Ihe upper lip lost to the lavender bulge ol the lower. "I'm bringing this before the commitlee at the meeting tonight," the superinlendent said. "1 want to know—are you going afong with me on this thing or not?" "\Vhat do you mean—am 1 going along? Where?" "To the end of the line. Suri- nov's asking for it, and I'm going to sec that he gets it. I don't propose Io put up with any more Bolshevik back talk. The oath has been ticbalcd, voted upon and accepted. It is now hospital law. Anyone who refused to sign was to be automatically fired. No one refused. But this smart alcck has signed in a way that is a disgrace to the hospital. Anyone who doesn't like the way we do things, doesn't be'ong here."
