"It must have been some exposure that night the burglar came." Joim always marvels at the perverse kind of satisfaction it seems to give most people, If they can find something concrete to blame an illness on. Every cold tias definite, identifiable draft for a [sponsor; every bead ache has a spe- 1 cine parent too, from sinus to i shrimps ("I knew they were ^spoiled!"). Indeed, there are no orphan complaints. John loves to ell about the old man of 70, who n the final throes of a coronary hrombosis (formerly erroneously ailed "acute indigestion") shoulec o his wife with whom he had just celebrated his golden wedding anniversary: Td never have gotten sick if 1 didn't eat the soup you made last nightT If making a scapegoat wH of a larmless drunk made Mother nappy, I would be the last to object 'Arent you going to take he to a hospital?" my father, being ; man of efficiency, asked next. "*I won't go," I shrieked,- sittin straight up in bed. Never agai: will 1 laugh at the many peopl who protest to the bitter end tha they "will die in their own beds Not that I thought of really dying The greatest safeguard agains such hysteria that anyone can bav is a good, strong ego, like mine which says In moments of crisi "This rant be happening to me! ; arid ends by coating everythin ' with a protective layer of un [reality.

I would like be able to report that I remem- ercxl every detail, and be able to ecount it tike Irvin S. Cobb and iis operations. Or etse, I certainly /ould like to be able to announce hat I entered the romantic kind f Hollywood fog, strictly reserved or heroines. Unfortunately, there was neither the conventional >low-by-blow description nor the espectable blank coma for me; or although chronological sequence was gone, many basic facts remained. To begin with, John's friends he hospital heard the news about my illness and hurried over. Each man of them behaved as if he ha<i never heard a real pneumonia be- lore, and insisted upon a persona examination to confirm the diagnosis. "Right here," the visiting diagnostician would say, hoppih pounding my chest as if it wer a back door on a speakeasy. "Let m« listen," another woulc say, coming forward as to a sym phony concert. Then after a moment he, too, would pronounce triumphantly, That's the spot aJ righir Then they would discuss "th case" like museum curators ove a newly discovered mummy, "Marked pallor," one would say making me feel like Ophelia.

Each morning, for instance, she wanted to change the linen. I held t for an extra dny. "We don't have enough sheets or daily changes," I said, "and oon I'll be lying on the bare mattress.* "Hospitals change every day,* ihe replied dogmatically. The batlie raged good-humoTed- iy from morning to morning, with the final score art'even tie. On the days' that Freda won, though, the resultant bed ma king was a Ilou- dinian exhibition.
