She apprecinted our dilemma. "I'll tell you," she said, "lei's tor- get this is a strictly business deaL 1 like you, and I'm only hired help. The landlord gave me a top and bottom price, so I'll give you the bottom ri|?ht oil the bat because." she laughed aloud, "you were about to leave and I couldn't let a good prospect go," The figure she nurncd was fair, and just within our means. "And say," she added as an afterthought, after we thanked her, "that wooden partition in the odice separates that big room into a consultation room and a treatment room, as if U wrere two rooms. Dr. Trent installed it him- jSelf. and told me to try lo collect something from the next ten- : ant and keep it for my sell. lell my old man you were tough customers and I- h d to. let you have it free. You can count ii us a wedding present from me." "Oh. Mrs. Lang," 1 sighed •you're wonderful. Just wait until 1 tell my mother how we made out." "Why not call her from the pay -station In the cellar?" she asked "Your husband can wait here. So l went in back and eagerly phoned iny mother. "What's the rent?" she asked alter congratulating us on finding -a place. I told her proudly. "And that five dollars lest, than the top price," I couldn't help boasting. "Really?" said my mother. What did you do?" "Chewed ncr down." 1 crowed with mental apoloRies lo Freda. iui my mother remained unun- ircssed and simply irnplind that leaven was known lo look after ools. PHE instinct to play house is as inherent as the Darwinian law f self-preservation, and as basic as holding hands in the movies- It 'Cgins with the first new dol! and he little next-door neighbor boy, and it never ends. Given a house nnu* a "he," any !emale can go on from there. But, just as the neifihboi boy Is an unwilling participant Iu the "Now 'I! he Mama, you be Papa, anci his is our home" routine, so. too the adult male is a reluctant accessory to the game. "But wha. on earth is wrong with the place?" asked John in bewilderment after 1 outlined my ?Ians for its rejuvenation. " thought you liked it. VVt had it al arranged with the foyer as a waiting room and the large room with the subdivision for a consultation and treatment room. Don't yot like it any more?" It's nice." l tried to explain "but on the dark side, [f we pain it bright white instead of this dul cream color, it'll look grand And." I went on pulling him through the other rooms as L con tinued, "take this foyer if it's tc be a waiting room, we shouk paper it arid make the most of it, shouldn't .ve? And the bedroom why John, anyone can see how pretty it would look in pale blue! 1 Anyone hut John, that is, "Pal. blue," he repeated sadly, anc sighed. By mutual consent we sanfc down .11 the bare floor. "And the living room." I &a next, waving in its general direc tion, "needs bookshelves for m library, and you can make those. "Me?" he nearly shriekec jumping up. "Me make book *? I'm a doctor not a car- cnirr." "Don't get tech meal," I an- wcred slamlinfc up too, "You onrself toJd me that you built nose shelves your.sell in your bcd- oom ai home, didn't you?" He winced audibly at the rccul- celion. "1 talk too much." "Do you -icnn to say.*' 1 dc- namted. "that you won't make helves fox u. or paint 01 anything?" "1 didn't say that nt all as yet," ohn answered. "1 jusi don't see L'hy we have lo." he continued, as I Logic had ever been intended ns necessary part of husband and wite conversations. • • • I WAS slumped. I knew I could never manage th e w hole job itl by myseK. Suddenly, I seemed .0 remember a scone from home: "Will you hang the curtains," my mother would say iJcasanlly to my father who would be contentedly absorbed In the evening .(inner, "Tomorrow, dear, tomorrow." "But that's what you've been saying since last week," my .other would protest. "But tViis tomorrow l will." he would repeat Very well. I'll hang them myself," my mother would say, turning to send me for the ladder. And thnt always did It: down went the paper, up went Hie drapes, and knighthood flowered. Warily, 1 considered my present situation, Anything was worth a try. "Very well, darling," I said, feeling like an amateur in a Shakespearean Village 3arn production about to mufl her lines, "I'll paint and paper and <lo all the work myself." 1 started ofTslnge as if to tackle the job Immediately, with the martyrdom befitting a Joan of Arc. John fortunately, although a little slow on the uptake, caught on"Oh, darling," he said picking up the proper cue, "of course I'll help you do everything 1 wouldn't think of letting you work by yourself." Well, what do you know, ] thought exultantly. Chivalry is not dead! (To Be Continued.) PKKCKUSS AA'D HIS FRIENDS BY MERRILL BLOSSEH Hal The Papers!
