John hnd always said, would make the dirtiest Tammany deal look like a Salvation Ai^ny meeting. The unreasonable, spasmodic, periodic hiring arid firing of the lower by the top few bore too close n resemblance to a Nazi purge for my comfort. But it that was what he had determined upon* there was little to do but work and Vry. 1 finished my cake and wenl over to kiss him. "John," I saic } cheerfully, "you start next week a' I the clinic, and some day it'll be • chief of staff. After all, it takes I just a few easy scenes in the ' movies, and on the radio, Jim ' Brent does it faster yet- But you j and me, well show them tha truth is better than fiction!" John laughed. "Chief at staff is a title used only on the radio sweetie. Technically, it doesn' exist. But thank, anyway, I what you mean," and he kissec rne too. None of this, however, solve* the problem of collecting patient. in greater bulK., a dilemma th: still remained. We rapidly d< cided that the major hindrance ir building E practice was the ah sence of a practice to begin with and in this, we were very mnc like the young girl whom nobod will employ because she baa m experience. Gert Shaw, during one of risits, offered to shoot someon passing in the street to get us som business, while Bob Abbott volun crcd to get sick himself, t>olh Icrs good tor a laugh at Least, '*A vicious cycle," Hob Abbott greed when we expounded this icory during one of his regxilar isits. "13ut the important thing is took busy. It's poor psychology o let a patient sil alone in a wail- ng room. She Invariably bc- ins to think". *H nobody else uses n's doctor, maybe I'm making a •nistakc coming here too.' liy the line- she ROCS inside the treatment oom. she's doubtful, distrustful nd unhappy, convinced you're ot a good doctor and unwilling to ive you a chance to disprove it." "But how can we help it?" I sked. "Every lime my folks or fiends visil, and we have a patient round, we always make them sit n the wailing room to look like riore business. Bui where can wo :ull the genuine multitude from?" Hob thought hard. "What about the people you know?" he finally isked. religiously Invited over. Like a ESowrry politician digging up live votes, "limmm," said the first visitor, broken-down businessman with big ideas. "N T ot such a bad place you've got here, not V>art at all." His deprecating glance and careless words reduced it to that famous shanty in old Shanty Town. "Yes," said his wife, a stout, dumpy, overdressed woman (or is it my subconscious protest?) so bad. But," and she paused dramatically, "do you know Dr, Winters on Park Avcnoo? No?" We shook our head and smiled painfully. Un discouraged, she continued, "You should see his place. Plush and magnificence. Always jammed. Have to wait all day to see him. He's got six nurses and 10 rooms. Why, heM never have time to sit rwftttt «*#wc<;ad^ t-IZ FRECKLES AND HIS FUIBNDS BY MERRILL BLOSSE1 Relax I "They've quit fighting In the apartment across the court —I suppose he finally saw the light and admitted Ke was wrong!"

To socialize means that the particular practitioner is to diligently dig up anyone ever known from birth onward and fraternize with him or tier or them in the hope of cementing the acquaintanceship into a medical contact So much of such socialization is done, in fact, that 1 would like to tahe this opportunity to warn people everywhere: "Deware the Dew friendship. His doclor bringing eye is probably fastened hopefully on your appendix or your unborn child rather than your sudden social glamour." Many a young physician, however, has successfully bnili his practice on this type of tactical maneuvering or, too. on a church congregation, although as far as I was concerned, this latter operation has always smack^t too much of the 30 pieces of silver. OUT friends had been rounded ufi by John and me at the onset, around like you, rings every single finished by pointinp at John, who by then was feeling less important than a buck private next to o top sergeant "Well, of course. Dr. Winters is something big." her husband at- fcred condescendingly, "bill some day, you may gel there too, young tellow." * • * TTMIE second arrival, a few nights Inter, was a struggling lawyer who had an ax of his own to grind "You," he said to John, aflcr he settled himself on our sofa, "are the righl kind for rnc to know. Aftcv all, as a doctor, you musl see thousands of people in your practice"—at this point I choked on my pretzel—* l and I thought maybe you could see your way to sending them to me when they need legal advice. I really would appreciate H no end, because awfully hard on a yotmg ffillow these days/' It was definite, mounting apprehension that 1 prepared lor our third visitor the next night, "We're no! impressing them enough," I told John after thinking it over. '*They want Dr. Kildare atmosphere, and all the excitement here, they might be visiting a coal miner on strike. Can't we pep it up?"
