"So far you've taken a mighty Olympian view of this whole rticXus, Dr. Logan, and I want to know-where you stand." The smell of Cota's cigar was beginning to make Logan's head ache. Outside, the palm fronds thrashed in a late afternoon wind. The imagined freshness of that waning day made the air in the office all but unbreathable. And w, in the last analysis, it was a cigar as much as anything else ^Jhat motivated his answer. (j|uess I'd say no, Mr. Cola. Tm not with you. Not on the basis of this meager little protest which is not the first nor the !ast of its kind. I don't think it's meant to be smart aleck or Bolshevik. Su- rinov put up a pretty eloquent fight against the oath ond he': just young enough to die hard Jf you have damaging evidence against him, that's another story But so far it's not treason to have » name that ends in 'V,' or to take an unpopular stand on an issue. I'd say a friendly reprimand would be all this thing"—he tapped the form-sheet — "i worth." Not until Dr. Logan had worked his way to the door and had hi: hand on the knob did he reali?.< how much the superintenclen wanted his support. He felt thi restraining touch on his arm heard the furred promise In the man's tone. "How important is t to you, Logan, that that little redhead on the fourth floor keep icr job here?" Dr. Logan laughed down Into he corrugated face. It was not the irst time he had congratulated himself on having kept the secret of his physical condition from his colleagues. "You (latter me," he said gaily. There are only two things that are important to me, Mr. Cota. My wife nnd my life—in that order. That ought to answer your question." • • » PUS'S horn, sounding »t last, fa- evitably caught Jennet in the midst of musings »bout Peter. She jumped as if pitchforked out her chair. She squashed out h«r cigaret, slipped into her jicket picked up her purse, and hurriec out of the building into the rosy gilded twilight. "Watch out for th« car coming,' Gus called to her as she rounded the nose of the convertible. "Sorry to keep you waiting, dear. Did Cota's secretary call "you?" "Yes," Jenn«t said, settling herself beside him in the front seat She patted his thinh by way o greeting. "What were you doing with Cola all this time? I thouph you didn't like him." Gus laughed. "That's one o your more delectable non-sequl turs. I had some business with him. Listen, honey, 1 have thi meeting here tonight at 7. I think we ought to eat at the Faculty Club, don't yoj? It will be toe much of a rush if 1 have to home and come back. You call Ingrid from the club. Atte dinner, you tan drive the ca home. Ill get a Ml b»ck f.. th» meeting with Walter Pelle tier." 'AH right," Jennet said. "I or- ered steaks. Ingrid won't have o put them in. We can have them omorrow night. "What did Cota •ant?" "Oh, there was a nurse who almost gave one of my patients the rong medicine, and Cola wanted er head for it. And then it seems hat Peter Surinbv got a little heated about signing the loyalty oath, and Cota wants his head too, and wants nie to help him et it." • • • JENNET braced her hands on the seat. "Are you going to?" "No," Gus said mildly. "I don't hink it's that serious. He did sign t, but he added a posts^ilpi s;i.£- ng neither was he a member of :he KM Klux Klan. Shouldn't ]ave done it, of course, hut he's oung and hotheaded. Anyway, le's Pelletier's boy, and if Pcl- er trusts him, that's good en«ugh lor me. Cota wound up by offering me a trade. Said he'd ;o easy cm the nurse if I backed lim up on Surinov. Can you magine that little weasel sug- [esting »hat just because I dc- 'ended the nurse, I had some special interest in her?" Jennet giggled. "What did you say?" I told him I had a young and beautiful wife who took up all my spare time." "Hah, you did not. You were probably pleased as Punch that thought you were such a gay dog." After > pause. Jennet asked, 'Is the meeting tonight about Peter Surinov?" "Well, It wasn't specially called. It's the regular monthly executive meeting. But Cota said he's going to bring the matter up. Walter Pelletier will give him a fight, I know that. It's not going lo be pleasant. How I hate these hassles! If it weren't for.Walter's feeling about the boy, I'd probably duck the meeting altogether.* Jennet said, "He certainly didn't strike me as a dangerous chaiacler." "Hm. Well. These days yoti can't be too careful, I guess." (To B« Continued CAMERAS REPAIRED Ravine trouble with your camera? Then brinj; IJ lo Barney's Drue.
