I saw your light go out." "You're not supposed to climb the stairs," she admonished. "I took them slowly. Onro s ri 3 while d'jcsn't mailer." She slid up on an elbow and turned on Ihe lamp. She squeezed her eyes a couple of times at the light. Gus bent to kiss her on the forehead, smoothed her long hair with his hand. She sat up and : moved her legs to make room for ihim. "What happened at the meeting?" Jennet asked. "What did they decide?" "Nothing yet. Walter and I fought for Stirinov and a couple of men chimed in on our side. The decision is postponed till Thursday night. They've called a special meeting. I'm gelling sick ol these meetings, I'll (ell you that." H« looked hard at her. •You all right, Jen? You look awfully pale." She leaned her back against the bed and wet her lips. , MAmd kr NCA SHVICt, taT^ "I think I ate something that disagreed with me." "What'd you eat at the Club? Oh, brook trout. You shouldn't order fish at the Club. I shouldn't have let you." "It wasn't that. The cabbage, more likely. I'll s l ec p it off. Maybe I got overtired. I met Peter Surinov after I left you. I went to a lecture with him— on public housing. It was sort of horrible." * • . QUS'S mouth pursed with troubled sweetness and the V appeared over his nose. "Sny, that Surinov is getting to be an ubiquitous character. How come you were interested in public housing— or was Surinov the attraction?" Jennet turned her head away. She didn't smile to his teasing, and Gus's voice sharpened. "What was horrible about it?" "Everything. The description of the slums— rats and uncollected garble and no toilets — ugh." "Nobody was forcing you Why didn't you leave?" "I did," Jennet said, near tears. "I did. I left while the meeting was still going on. Peter was leading the question period and I just picked up and walked out." "Peter," Gus ruminated. "Do«s he call you Jennet?" "frankly, I never noticed. I don t think he calls me anything at all," Jennet said irritably. "Gus, please stop being silly and get me a pill or something. I'm nauseated." Gus observed (lie dark lashes that quivered on the bloodless cheeks. A faint blue vein showed under the transparent skin and he put his hand over it. "You'll be okay, hon«.T. S»y, you didn't mention anything about the meeting • .onijht to Surinuv. did you?" Jennet'i eyelid* flew up like snapped window shades. "No, why?" "Well, it's confidential, chaff all. It wouldn't do him any good to tell him what's going on. It might even do him harm. H« could cook his own goose faster than anyone could cook it for him." "Well, I didn't say anything. You know I wouldn't reveal your confidences." She reached for his hand. "Gus, isn't it terrible the way some people have to live?" Gus sighed. He wai no more willing to go into the state of the world and the nature of man now with Jennet than he had been with Pelletier. "The world is full of injustices, my dear. You and I can't reform the world." "But we're so lucky. We ougM to do something." "In a small way, I do my share I spend a third of my time treating free patients." "What about me? I do nothing." "You're giving your services at the clinic," he reminded he*-. "It's not enough. We have so much. I should have given some money tonight. I meant to but all of a sudden 1 couldn't take H any more. I ran out. I should have stayed. I should have given five or ten dollars." Unconsciously she quoted Peter: -Who am I to run from the sound at unpleasantness. Some people are living it, not just hearing about it." • • * ALTHOUGH Gus was not • * close-fUted man, there was something distinctly irksome to him in his wife's regret over not having given away a portion of his money. "I wish you wouldn't work yourself up Jiko ihJs Jcn- iiii. i'ou can mail a checkT'in the morning. I don't mind your making a contribution, but I hope you realize it's only conscience balm." "If everyone gave five dollar! or so ..." . T ^*, J" everyone- argument te for cnHdren: If everyone shouted in the halls, if everyone scraped their chalk. The point is everyone never does. Ever seen women a( a b«rf»in counter? Kver »ee« people around • smorgasbord table? A sight more reveslin* than we'd lil;c to believe."
