The car pulled up to the Logan house, its molor idling while the men continued to talk. "What gets me," said Pellelier "is that they put it to the enc thinking we'd all be tired anc anxious to get home and Ihey'c railroad it through. Those meetings are always so long and deadly. By the Uiiiv you've listenec to the minutes and the committci reports and the special businesi letters and gone over each of the applications for new staff ap pointments, you're punchy. You'ri willing to say uncle to anylhiiv that stands between you and bed.' "That's no He." Gus's face nn der the roachlight shifted its ge omctrical patches. "But Walter they had It figured closer thai that. Did Cota sound you out 01 this thing?" "No, why would he? He know how 1 feel about Peter Surino 1 Peter's one of. my boy*. I biie im and I've stood behind him on verything—even his quarrel with he oath. Remember, I was the nly committee member who vot- d against it. I'm willing to ad- iit that the country needs some heck on subversion, but mancta- ory oaths and unenforceable ills are not the answer." "Look, Walt let's not go into rial again," Gus said. "The oath may not do much good, but I an't see that it's going to do nough harm to fight about. Let's ;et back to the point. The point s, Cota knows your sentiments he knows how the other committee members stand. But in pite of the way I voted, h« wasn't ;ure of me. My attitude w; Olympian, I think he gald, and h« asked me point-blank if I'd support him on this Surinov cast." WALTER PELLETIER twitched * ofl the motor. He pulled i crumpled pack of eigarets from his pocket and before h« lit th cigaret he asked, "What did you iay to that?" "I said I thought he was b«in loo severe. 1 said I didn't think I'd side with him. So then, ther were two opponents, you and me The rest he thought he could han die because they would be again; Surinov in principle and incliffer ent to him personally, five of th men didn't Khow up tonight. Th Chief of Staff had i quorum six. It must kill Cola that h can't vote." Pelletier's snort o appreciation forced out a pufl ball of smoke. "So then," Loga went on, "they thought the:' push it through with • minimum of discussion and a decisive voi of four to two." "Then when I got net up Pelletier interposed, "and yo stood by me, and Rappaport an Warnet unexpectedly chimed ith us, they realized they'd got leir powder damp. This businesi ' calling a special meeting fox hursday gives time to reload." •Exactly. They know the men r* tick of meetings and only a andful will show up Thursday, "heir own handful. They'll prime le pump, you can be sure of lat. J tell you, Walt, I don't link it looks good for Surinov. fe held thing* up tonight. But at he end there, Cota got kind of asty. He implied that you want- d to keep Surinov so "you could tick your name on the prize- winning research papers he turns out. Did you get that!" <Y EAH . said I he ard 'hat," Pelletier in his heavy-lidded, ardonic way. "I don't care what e implies. My department's going ull blast. I know what we're Taking for the hospital per »n- um. Gua I'm no stranger around here. The men know I don't go kulktng around with ulterior mo- Ives and a basket out for glory. ?hey know me and they know ~«. Even the ones who kowtow him will admit behind their lands that he's a heel. n He drew m the cigaret, took his time let- ing the nmoke out, "Peter's a fine ad, bright as a dollar and a hound !or work. But he's stubborn. He never should have written his postscript on that oath. It was a fool thing to do. But, after all, he did sign the oath. That's the important thing, isn't it? I suppose iota's right— Peter did legally de- ace the document, but that doesn't render his oath invalid, does it? That doesn't prove he's a Communist, does it? "Why, I know that boy, Gus! He's r.o more a Communist than you or I. Besides working with him, I have him over to the house on the average ot once a week. My kids are cra?.y about him. Slclla is too. Why. I know everything he docs and a good deal of what he Uiinks, and while I don't go along with him on all his ideas, I consider him !he slaunchest kind ot patriot. He makes his own moral and intellectual decisions and he's willing to stick hlf neck out for them.
