Her mother's gone, she's alone, and I'd like to see those two children get together." And Jennet, hoping to encounter Peter there, had accepted with alacrity. As dirt everyone who fell within the warm circle of the Pellctiers, Jennet felt relaxed and at home with them on that family holiday. The boys, aged 12, 10 and eight, were scrubbed, untidy and garrulous. Their lively faces which resembled but did not repeat each other were. Jennet thought, the gayest table decorations she had seen for some time. The children made a great fuss over the turkey '-- which only the 12-year-old ul- 3y had appetite, and Jennet ncmbered her own reluctance as a child to eat the bird who always came, after weeks of school stories, to seem more human than John Aldcn himself. Jennet's own appetite was lost to the memory of her initial meeting with Peter—here, at this table, tinder this crystal wheel of lighl, facing this portion of scenic wallpaper, gcndorless idyl of willow and pond—and to the still live hope of his coming here tonight. In the welter of children's talk, her lapses of attention and her picking at her plate went unnoticed. After dinner, the boys, lured by television, disappeared into the- upper regions of the house, and Jcu- net and Stella and Walter sipped brandy in the quiet of the living room. .

' eyes to her husband who, thus cued, said, "I'd be glad to see you get out and get busy, Jennet, but at this particular time, I'm not sure the hospital .is » good idea. Peter is in a little trouble right now. . . ." "Trouble?" Jennet echoed, paling. "Well, I'm trying to get him reinstated at the hospital. We're waiting tor a federal clearance —that is, Peter has to be passed on as a good security risk. Some of his enemies, particularly Maxwell Cola, would be only too glad to throw a monkey-wrench into things. In fact, Colo seems to have some ace up his sleeve already— he hinted as much. That's why I feel—in view of the—er—trouble last June, it might be better for him—and for you too—If you steered clear of Angels until the situation is under control." 'WHEN the chimes rang a few minutes later. Jennet's head swung to the sound. "That must be Peler now," Stella said, without looking up from her needles. "Why don't jou answer it, Jennet?" Jennet opened he front door. Peter's eyes widened at the sight of her and then he grinned. "Looks like I've got more to be thankful for than I thought." She pulled him inside, put her face against his coat. "Peter, I tried to phone you. . . ." • He lifted her face with his hand bent to her mouth. When, remembering the Pelle- tiers at last, she pulled away from his kiss, she was surprised to feel tears under her lashes. They stayed the space of time it took Peter to drink a highball. Ibut it seemed a long time to Jennet, the more so since Peter did not seem to be in a hurry to depart They sat beside each other on the couch. "Mjr plan," Walter was saying, "is to present your clearance and the grant to the Medical Executive Committee and to request your reinstatement. But I hope you're not going to be skittish about signing '.he 02!!!, Peter. That's a must now at Angels. You're not going to balk again on that?" • • • "WALTER, you know how I feel about test oaths," Peter said "1 think they slink. But." he reached for Jennet's hand, "There's too much at stake to balk at thai now. Put it this way. When the oath first came up, I stood with the guys who said 'Why?' Now," he said, looking at Jennet. "I'm a why-notler." "You- don't have to sound so sheepish about it." Walter said. "I'll tell yon. Peter, maybe Z rationalize but to me this is no time for frontier altitudes. There aren't any more frontiers. It's no time for absolute certainties, it's a period of flux, of changing creeds and Ideologies, and in time of change, one makes compromises. One has to to get along. We re caught between two American ways of thought. The democratic way, the democratic society which favors individual independence and says, 'Stand on your own two fed.' And the authoritarian society, the capitalistic outgrowth which says, 'Be a good boy and' mind the boss and then you'll get protection and an electric dishwasher. 1 Obviously, these are opposite Ideals—independence and submission. Yet, they exist side by side in America today. Naturally, the individual is conflicted Let's face it. The society in which we live is unstable. The economic contradictions alone are enough to make us a nation of schizophrenics, let alone the moral ones. But the strong have to slay and fighl. Maybe out of this struggle between authority and democracy will come a new creed, a way of living In pence and international amity. That's what we have to slay and fight for. .. ."
