Bob Abbott, John's best friend, was playing ping-pong with whnt looked like n brand new girl, In the earner. Bob was the Beau Geate of the medical tribe. He •dressed like a Fifth Avenue dummy, behaved as much like a Casa- ,novir sultan building up a harem Jas society allows, and seemed to ; think that he was What Every j Young GirJ Should Know. Karl IHoizmann. and his wife Tnidy, a pretty Austrian girl, were dane- ing in the center of the room. ! while about five other couples rwcrc floating around. ' "Hi," said Bob, dropping his /racket, "took who's hero!" i Everybody else pounced on HI 'too. Janet Grayson began U> ipound "Here Comes the Bride" on ;lhe piano, hut was almost com- nletcly drowned out by their noisy rree tings. Gert Shaw, Alec's wife, imported two years before from the wilds of. Montana, came forwart next, "lilankety blank," stic be- ;gan, and we all roared expectantly. Gcrt's profanity, which slipped so effortlessly and naturally into her everyday speech, had long since passed the shocking stage, and became, instead, a hospital landmark. Her words were all uttered with the casual detachment of a radio announcer rendering the baseball scores, followed by a forecast of the weather. "Bring on the gifts," snid Hilda Emmctl, and I knew immediately that with her usual officiousness, Hilda had put herself in sole i charge of selecting, wrapping, and '.producing the presents. She was | born to collect dimes on street t corners for worthy causes, to or- f ganize polite assistance for ex- rpccLnnt catastrophes. There was a pop-up toaster for : us. a cocktail shaker with six glasses, and two guest towels, "Oh, you shouldn't have," I said, knowing that they had spent their entire last month's pay, "but I'm glad you did." By now, the party was m lop swing, with the radio going full force and everyone dancing with everyone else. Suddenly, we all stopped moving, as Miss O'Grady, I he night supervisor of nurses mine and stood in the doorway with a plea for noise. "It's carrying a little into the wards, upstairs," she explained.

Bob said to me. as she left, but John, who had come up to where we were standing, answered for me: "She doesn't like it. Bob. and I'm getting tired of drinking the ones everybody forces on her." My dislike for alcoholic beverages had often been a major social sin during my adolescent years. Not thnt I am against liouor as such. I would ccrlainly never dctnonslrale against the Demon Rum, or'write my Congressman about il either. If everyone else wanted lo go on » 10 day bini-,e without bothering me. 1 would never complain- even if 1 do privately think lhal inebriation is a pitifully foolish state, and smells bad. It is unfortunate, however, that as far as I am concerned, the stuff tastes mixture of floor shellac, like cnstor oil. camphor balls. mcdicalerl cough drops. and . Bui so great is the intolerance of me drinker for the root beer (an, (or years 1 would order drinks upon request, and leave wnstofullv behind nnrelv them gesture of self-defense. Now, as John spoke, £ sensed a new b"Dera- tion. "You do as you please," he went on, turning to me, "and ignore the remarks. Come on, darling, we'll get you a good ginger ale before on die of thirsl." • • • AS we approached the refreshment table, I suddenly remembered that we hadn't lold anyone of our new housing lead. "That's a pretty good neighbor- lood." Janet Grayson said, after I made our announcement. She and Hank would be needing a place of their own in another few monlhs, and il was obvious lhat she had already been brushing up on locations. "I hope you gel il," Bob said incercly, "and if there's anything can do, just let me know." Alec ami Gert Shaw promised lo come over and answer the telephone for us when we wanted to go to a movie. "That's right," Janet said, "you need a baby siller for a doctor's telephone. You'll find yourscH rather tied down." John laughed. "Who'll call?" he don't even have an The invitalion was too pointed to ignore. There was a short entrance hall leading ahead into a mcdium- si/.ed foyer about six leet wide and 12 feet long. On the right ol the foyer were two doors leading nlo two large rooms. In trie een- .cr of the foyer's back wall, there was the opening for the unusually- large kitchen, while to Ihc far left ivns a little hall with a bedroom and bath off of it The cnlirr ipartmenl was immaculately clean So engrossed wns 1 in examining the place, that 1 never even noticed John's entrance with the superintendent's wife, until a voice Behind me asked, "Like il?" J JUMPED and turner! around. "Ddrling," I nearly hugged him in my excitement. "Isn't i! wonderful? Isn'l it perfect? Can't you just see us living here, John?" The superintendent's wife, who until then had seemed bored with the routine of showing a vacancy. asked. office yet, or a patient- cither.' • • • r FHE nexl morning, of;coursc, we overslept, bul soon after we did awaken we were heading for Longview Road. As we neared our destination, I could see lhal we were in a middling part of town. Not that King Midas had any relatives there, bul a careful assured me that this wasn't Tobacco [load, either. The apartment houses on cilhcr side, were high and well kept, and the children crowding the streets were noisy and messed, bul nol in rags. No. 42. the house on the corner, was only one block and a half from Ihe subway stiilion. and a cross-town bus stopper! at the far casl side. With quick sighs of relief, we both checked off "location" and slopped still in front of the building. We bolh noticed the black and white sign. In Ihc street entrance of the ground floor aparlmcnt, which said: "Four room apartment for rent: Inquire Superintcndeni in rear." John obediently set off for the rear, while I waited impaticnlly up front Restlessly, 1 tried Ihc strccl door, and to my surprise, il ononed DOM'F 60NFARTH/VI WINDOW ASA1N A1ONI6 THAT BLACK CAR WAS CIRCLING THIS HOUSE FOR HO GOOD REASON.

She was o heavy-set woman, but with a surprisingly young-looking f.-icc. and kind, bright, blue eyes. As we stood laughing nl each drier, I fell lhal 1 had made a now friend.
