"Just a hangover from loo much excitement." " 1 told myself after my mother left with her dire forebodings; "of course I won't tell John." But John, when he came home in a little while, didn't need telling. "Stil! angry, dear?" he asked. l^en it came to interpreting my . emotions, John could sometimes ! be as deft as a bank clerk trying j to diagnose stomach ulcers. "Of course not," I said with ' needless temper, I "Then you don't feel well," he ; said, a little more definitely. "Let '. mp examine yon," j "That's not necessary," I stotc- | ally refused. "I'm probably tired . from ill that burglar scare last j night. A good night's sleep will flx me up line, you'll see." The next morning I couldn't pet up at all. "I'm going to examine you whether you like It or nol," said John. "Let me alone," 1 yelled. "There's nothing the matter with me. I've got to go to school." "You're feverish," he retorted furiously. "And you're lust making n fuss like always. Remember last time? It was, perhaps unfair to refer to las*j time, for certainly John remembered it only too well We were out driving two week* before, after a tremendous dinner at a near-by restaurant, when suddenly John got a pam Now any pain, from a shaving scratch 10 i common belch, makes i man act as U he were undergoing a hot-iron leg imputation without anesthesia.

With the very firs! onslaught. John pulled the car up at the :urb, cut the motor dead, and sat stuck still. "What's the matter?" 1 asked in alarm. "I've got a pain In my chest," he answered. "Here." "Oh," I said, feeling relieved. "I told you not to eat that extra potato, besides finishing my pie. It was too much. Let's gel nome. anri you can lake some bicarb." For answer, John groaned, like a death-rattling hippopotamus. • • • JTE hesitated. "I'm afraid It might be a henrt attack." he reluctantly admitted. "It usually starts with precardial pains, like this." 'Oh, John," I said eagerly, "that's silly It can't be thai; it's probably digestive. Why must you always put ,fancy names and frightening fears on every little thing? I thought you once told me that coronaries usually occur in the late forties or early fifties, and you're not even 30." He still spoke low, when he answered, but with a reassuring firmness that he felt the discussion entailed. "There are cases on record," he told me. "where coronaries were reported as early as 24 and 26. All my married life, I have cursed the literature with its dangerous rules and exceptions! "Very well," I said finally, since there was no disputing the Board of Internal Medicine, "let's go home. Can you drive?" "I'd rather nol uike a chance on driving," John said. "You'c better phone Bob at the hospita. and tell him. He'll know what to do." "All right." I got out of the car and, at his request, helped him into the rear where he solemnly ] lay hlmflf down "*i tH« hirk . likr Kins Arlh'ir on nls funera large "I'll be right back," I said, nrning to go to the nearest public elcphone. suddenly fully aware if the genuine fear on his face.

Bob rode up in the hospital ambulance, with all the sirens ;olng full blast like a five-alarm Ire. "Just you relax," he told us both "Dr Gillespic ts here." "Wanta ride?" Shorty McGiirk. Ihe ambulance driver asked. 1 had always teased for one. "Not ntnv. Shorty." 1 said, trying to smile over my worry. "Maybo later." » • » A ND then, finally, Bob came out with John following sheepishly. "What a phony!" Bob said. "Gets a little gas pnin and thinks he's dying. I brought along Tony's portable electrocardiograph, and ran a test Jusl to be doubly sure It's ncgRtlve but all he's got is a plain uppci stomach ache." At flrst I was so relieved that I threw my arms joyfully abom the former condemned man and kissed him. 'Then I remembered everything, and turned on him hi righteous . Indignation. "Scaring the lile oul ol me! Didn't 1 tell you It was nothing?" 1 demanded. ''You—you worrier!" "I'd hove tell the same," Bob spoke up, trying to delend John. "You gloriilcd clumbers!" I raged, climbing in beside Shorty McCurk, "Let's take > ride. Shnr- ty," I said, "and ring all the belli. I've had enoughl" But It was never enough, and 1 wielded the story like an Amazonian club over John's bead, whenever necessary. But that morning, my diversionary move tailed "That's over." John laid definitely. "You stay right ncre. I'll get my bag (rom the oHIce and examine you."
