It always satisfying and tiappy timeE John and I would compare notes on the Hay's events. "Wasnt Mrs Davis a riot on the phone?* 1 he would recall "She spoke and spoke. Then when the operator interrupter 1 her and asked for another nickel, she answered In a hurt lone of voice: 'Operator please be a little more respectful I'm talking to a doctor now.'" 1 would remember one next. 4 *What about Mr. Paley?" I would remind John, and again we were of! on a gale of laughter. Mr. Paley had coine in one day in deep trouble. "What's the matter?** asked !John. Mr. Paley was known : be a very nervous, hysterical man i "Well," the patient said, "las ;weck the teller who works nex to me came in and said he couldn swallow. His doctor said nothin •was wrong, called • it gtobu hystericus. and said it was nerves .and I remembered that I had Jump in my throat like that fiv years ago and the doc said th same thing. So all week long 'kept talking to him to snap out o -it and get a grip on his nerve. ;and sure enough today, he's ovei 'H and come in cured." "Fine," said John enctmrag i ingly. "Ana now what's Lh 'trouble with you?" ( Shamefacedly, Mr. Paley tried t Mk away. "Well.

"I'll tako the ther mos bottle home r.nd you care he forks and napkins in the papc. bag." I lifted the jugs qnickly. bvi John heslitaied. How will it look for me t carry it?" he finally asked. "Afte all, 1 do have to think of my professional dignity, don't I?" L gosned aloud. "John," 1 al most wailed, "you v>rornised you' never get that way, stuffy, and oh you know!" For :i moment he didn't reply Then he laughed sheepishly. "I sorry, darling,' 7 he said. "Tha was moronic, but you needn worry. It must have been the un usually busy day I've had that gone to my head. 1 promise won't ever happen again." I forgave him, and while never actually did happen agaii I started watching him careful! for signs of any further profe^ sional symptoms.

"Don't," 1 prayed silently, "don't start talking as if it were a horse iistead of little Connie!" But he didn't, and 1 noticed wilh surprise thai he had enlen little of his dinner. "She's near to dying, and there's nothing anyone can do but wait and see what happens. Not a thing!" It was as if his professional armor had cracked, and 1 could really see the emotional depths beneath. All at once.
