Asn <J|7 cfc I Love My Doctor, r^ f~ * n I * **^ Ci_»_ti j-.t v r_.^_ •. >;• • By Evelyn Parkins XXIV AS a doctor's wife, I hod to extend invitations to the hospital chiefs, who were, in a sense, John's bosses, although I definitely disapproved of his hospital aspirations. "It would be fine if yon were closeJy related to the head of the medical board by blood or marriage," I told John over and over •again, "but this way, it's too precarious. It's like trying to get work in a closed shop, when they won't even let you join the union." Since he persisted in his ambition, however, 1 stood by to jhelp him get ahead. One day he 'telephoned in a dither: "Old Mal- I colm'i coming home with me to 'visit this afternoon at 3. Roll oul j the carpet and cross your fingers," (he said and hung up. i - Old Malcolm was the chief In •surgery, and 1 was prepared to give the devil his due. 1 ran into i Freda's (or the loan of the lace ; doily and gold-plated dishes (he: • F great grandmother's) and with hci ^material and spiritual help i emerged with enough nuts ant ! candies and fruit and little sand wiches for a charity bazaar. ir Leave it in the KiIchen al fixed," said Freda, "and at th i right moment, drag it out a ; your 10 servants prepared it to lyou." ': "I certainly will," 1 promisee (happily, so busy putting my bes ;"ioot forward that I subsequent! ^tripped.; } When John and Dr. Malcolm ar j rived, I ushered them into the U' | ing room as if it were the king o '.Kngland and his stafl. Dr. Ma *colm, I was surprised to note, a ' we all sal down, was a Inn i l little, bald man of about 50, wit a tanned -wrinkled skin, and thic glasses. His hands bung limp : frorri his wrists "in order to," h explained as 1 stared, "create •state of complete relaxation," a he shook them loosely to demon strate. He wore an untidy, simp suit that looked like a used laun y sack and would have made a ade A hobo retreat tn dismay, s shoes were not mates, and he .id two lies around his neck. "Have I?" he asked, when I lUldn't resist pointing out this tter absurdity. "Oh yes, 1 for- ot 1 already had one on." He almly removed the outer tie and .it it in his pocket, while casually ontinuing his former conversa- on. As 1 s^l and watched his foggy lovements with fascination. Dr. rfalcolro reached in a side com- artment of his jacket for a hand- erchief and dropped a few theater ickets in the process. "Your tickets, sir," John said icking them up. "Mine?" asked Malcolm in sur- rise. Then, adjusting his glasses or a better look, he said; "So hat's where they were all the ime. Were for last night," he explained, as if 56,00 tickets weri en cent chances on a lottery )oard, "but 1 couldn't flnd them ;o we couldn't go." P Circular Hen House Houses 9,600 Hens AMBOY, 111. (AP)—John Klteman has figured a way to raLse 9.000 chickens under one roof. I He constructed an improved version of the circular "hen house.": Hla 150-foot diameter building Ls I pie-cut Into eight sections, each containing ultra-modern watering, feeding and nesting equipment. The floor slopes to the center drain for j easy cleaning. | A 16-foot center circle serves as a work area. A feed cnrrier mounted on a circle monorail suspended from the ceiling enables one man to tend the flock. R the entire period ol hi visit, 1 could not stop watch :ng his, slightest absent-minded gesture; so much so that it wa not until he got up at 4 o'cloc sharp to go, that I remembered a! my elegant preparations in th kitchen. 'Oh, John," I wailed, as the doo closed behind Dr. Malcolm, "Con see what 1 did!" I led him int the kitchen where my resplendui: least stood. in untouched glory. "It doesn't matter," John sai consolingly. "He's so dizzy b wouldn't know anyway, won] he?" W e both laugh ed . "Kat you dinner," 1 said, ottering the san wiches. Then I gasped, "What cliarnctcrl How can he tell th difference between an appeodu and an infected finger?" "But 1 tell you he's a whiz surgery," John insisted. '*The bes man we've got! Except for tho little tricks he pulls. You kno he's so tiny be operates on stool, or else the table's too : "h. V.'cll. one hot Hay lasi thiner, he came into the operat- fi room with nothing al all on iderneath his surgeon's gown, id with back wide open." "Oh no," 1 breathed incredu- " ; ly. "What happened?" ing," said John, obviously roucl of his association with is personality. Like o little boy oasltng about how his Uncle Zcke lied three men before tlie cops mght him. "The nearest nurse ed his gown up behind, and saved ic day." * * * . FEW days after Dr. Malcolm's ! visit. John came home with the j arvelous news that he had re- eivt-0 nn appointment on the sur- ical staff, The lowest job in the hospital," c said with shining eyes, ns if he ad Just been named Surgeon General in Washington. "Only a unior adjunct, but at least a tart. And Under Malcolm's serv- ce too!" "It was my hospitality that ilinched it," I laughed, as we wung aboul the room in a victory lance. Then we slopped in a real ihoto finish. "Oh darling," I xulted, after a satisfactory em- jrace. "isn't it wonderful? Isn't t grand? I just can't believe it!" It seemed to me then that my marital education was finally complete. This umty between us, so ,hat 1 could rejoice in his success as if it were my very own was like a heady wine. Uut the degree I so rapidly pinned upon my chest was shortlived. From Hitler and Mussolini back 10 the stock-market crash of *29, I have learned that nothing lasts. Every lime I reach a point ib life where I think "Eureka, this is it!" i find thai 1 have unknowingly settled down on a pin cushion which sets me forth again. Our time bomb was set tor the day following the confirmation of John's appointment. Aimosl immediately, as inevitable in Its occurrence and as interminable and agonizing In its duration as a bad case ol adolescence, our nrsl major quarreJ loomed upon the horizon. (To Be Continued.)
