Dr. Logan's Wife .l^.-Mp * By Diana G»in«s ^m XXXIX GO tlie weeks passed, spent on alternating tides of fear and do- .sire, menace and security, ice and fire. There were times when love was enough and there were times when even love did not case the frustration of Peter's exile from research. Unwilling to live on Jennet's money. Peter had taken a job in the experimental division of a television firm. They assured each other that it was only a temporary measure, but the days went by, Christmas, New Ycnr's, January was half gone, and they had not heard. It was an unpalatable irony that at that moment when her own life had assumed a greeting-card fulsomeness, Peter's should have lost it; a further irony that she was as powerless lo restore it lo him as he was empowered to award it to her. For her. Peter had changed everything. He had transformed ' her from child to woman, and she took a fierce pleasure in her womanly tasks. She did her own housework now—Ingrid, unable lo transfer allegiance lo a new master, had gone—and under Jennet's familiarizing dust cloth, vacuum cleaner, scrub brush, the house lost the animistic tyranny wilh which she had moodily imbued it, became a functionally pleasant place in which one did one's living. She had censed play-acting the role of mislrcss of the house, had, by virtue of her new seniority, reduced the house to service. The white picket fence was no longer a confinement but an embrace. In the way of women whose husbands are not watchful of money, Jennet had become not only praclical but thrifty, instituting of her own accord economy measures that once would have i HOIM, IK T N€A SKVlCf.

The phone rang. • • • ^T Angel's Hospital, the row of past presidents' portraits striped the wall behind the long conference table. The black and white of garb and faces was repealed in the white mattings and black frames, and below them the dark-suilcd, white-shirtcd members of the hospital executive committee rayed out in two parallel lines, living extensions of the dead. To the left of the chairman, opposite the superintendent, the younger man in Gus Logan's seat moved restlessly under the fell eye of Waller Pcllelicr, who was indeed at that moment looking through the young mnn to see the benign ghost o( his predecessor. When Ihe signal came—"Any new business or unfinished old btwincM?" — Walter Pellctier sprang up. "Mr. Chairman!" His voice firmed as he read aloud, '"happy to report,'" he reatt, •' 'that the FBI has thoroughly checked the character and moral standards of Dr. Peter Surinov and they find that he is entirely satisfactory without reservation. We are therefore instructing our office lo approve your budget request for your project and you will receive payment in quarterly installments . . ." When he had finished re.idina the letter. Dr. Pellclicr folded il and looked up. The faces were almost flatteringly attentive. More than atlenth-e, ihoy were alert. Uc slapped the letter against the table edge.

The experiment la which il refers will, if successful, protect human beings from the damage of atomic bombing," He paused, glanced at the superintendent's drumming fingers which had begun to beat the table wilh the frenzy of a Gei.ijer counter pvtt to pitchblende. The fingers stopped then and Dr. Pelletier continued. "Tiic idea for Ihis piece of ivork is Peter Surinov's. The work was started here last May by Peler Surinov. The United States Government says if may be continued by Peter Surinov. And frankly, gentlemen, I s;iy it must be done by Peler Surinov or not at this hospital at all. In view of the confused anci tropic circumstances under which Dr. Surinov was released from Angels some months ago, I want to gel this committee's approval before re-appointing him to my department staff." • « * jVTAXWELI. COTA shot out of his scat. "Mr. Chairman, this is an administrative matter. Administration is my job. Dr. Pelleticr is out of order bringing this up as committee business!" "It was this committee (hat fired him!" Dr. Pellctier bellowed. "How technical can you get? This is a medical board, not a court of law." "The firine was different," Cola retorted. "The loyalty oa!h involved hospital policy." "I want the matter cleared through this committee," Dr. Pel- lctier insisted. "I'm not finicky about points of order. There's loo much at stake. Lnst time the main issue of Peter Surinov's loyalty was lost in the explosion of a dirty slick of homemade dynamite. It killed our beloved colleague, Gtis Logan. I'm not going to let it maim a ^reat young scientist. Scientists like Peler Surinov are rare birds. Superintendents like Maxwell Cota are a dime a dozen!" "By God." Cola shrilled, "if men like me are a dime a do/en, thery X-ray men like you must be sold by the hunch!"
