But like everything else, the silver lining to our problem of what to get was our inability to buy it. The essentials, ot course, we could manage: bed. chairs, ;ofliee equipment et cetera. Hut much of the rest would have to await a more pecunious day. : But I wanted a painting, a (genuine oH painting and I couldn't : afTord H. , "Make H yourself," Ji -n said teasingly. "Isn't that our operating principle?" i "I wish I could," I answered iseriously, but truthfully, since un' fortunately I am one of those 'people whose best attempts at (drawing m^ke the most extreme modern art look comparatively intelligible. And then one day, when John and I were out walking, we came across a lovely scenic picture marked down to almost nothing. Inquiry explained the miracle as being the result of a big tear In the canvas right across a tremendous tree trunk in the foreground. "Let's get it," I whispered to John, "anu well flx it up.- So we bought it anc toot it home. j '"Put adhesive on the back over the damaged part," John advised, ajid it worked fine. Tlien J >ought some paints and blackened the siiUirr line, brightened up the sky with a little more blue, and stopped there only because John "insisted. "Beautiful. 1 * 1 breathed happily when it was finished, as if I had iust been presenUxi with an original Van Gogh. • • • E had four mahogany and white leather chairs and a red Blaster lamp with a white shade in the foyer waiting room and four red leatherette chairs from my Aunt Hilda in the kitchen, and a Ded, chest, dresser, two night tables and two lamps (John's cousin Steve), in the bedroom. The living room was adequately filled with my old tremendous rand piano which nv mother had graciously donated, a red velvet couch with twin tables and white lamps from my father, and John's famous bookshelves. But then, everything looked beautiful to me there, ui^til the time when l stood all alone waiting tor John to come hoine to spend our first sleeping night As I waited for his arrival. J was seized with a sudden doubt. All at once, the fading afternoon I i ght made all the rooms see m gray and dismally dull. The floor coverings under my feet, felt unusually thin ana hard, and the un- matching strips of paper in the foyer stood out glaringly ridiculously. 1 stood at the kitchen window, with the cold bare walls about me, and looked oul into the shabby-looking, crowded, noisy street Where was the beauty now? "It's poor looking and cheap,' I thought. "All our work was >ust a sham. It's nothing much at all!' Just then, I beard John's key in the lock, and I struggled for self- control. But instead of coming straight inside, he called: "Close your eyes, and don't open until ; say." "AH right," I called back, glad of the. respite. I stood wailing until he said '.idy," and Uien wont oul lo "hen he was. He had lighted foyer lamp, and its softly imr; glow lit up the entire tlace. There was low. sweet music coming in from Lhe living room, and on Ihe table, beside the amp, was his Auiil Sarah's bron/e >"wl filled with a large, glorious, 'rngrant bunch of the reddest • 1 had ever scon. "For our first official nlghi in our wonderful new home," he said proudly, smiling happily at me, and just like [hat as I stood aeside him, everything was beautiful again. » • • 'HE path of tiie novice is always trnujjlit .vilh innumerable piUalls —hich, fortunately. !le scarcely ever sees. The armor of youth is ignorance, and the spur of its amoition is inexperience. Self-confidence rather than knowledge carries the beginner far, and it is not until the pinnacle of success it attained and seemed, that the risks, the gaping traps behind him suddenly become appar- enL "Lord," ho s^ys with proper awe, "how did 1 ever do it?" Atid he never really knows. For the medical novice, however, the precariousness is even worse. There exists a peculiar element called "confidence in a doctor," which serves as the basis of the physician-patient relationship, but which also acts as a hindrance to his rapid development of a clientele. It is almost as if no one person is ever willing or daringly brave enough to Oder hirnscU as the oriRina! guinea pig, and to then ?o forth with a personal testimonial of his survivaL "Build a practice?' John glibly told my worried parents. "Why that's easy: Mrs. A come; in and she's pleased with my services, so she recommends Mrs. B to me, who's also satisfied. Mrs. B relers Mrs. C, Mrs. C sends Mrs D. and so forth until J need an assistant." I smiled happily at this wonderful logic, but my mother said pointedly, from her full share of experience and knowledge and caution and fear: "But where is Mrs. A?" (To Be Continued.)
