First, Ihcre was our annual anniversary which came next. "A whole year!" we would exclaim whenever there was a respectful pause during the day. ;''Incredible!" I John bought me a complete set ;0f legal stationery, beautifully en- i graved with "Counselor-at-Law." I "That's me!" I said happily, run' : ning my finger excitedly over the praised lettering and feeling more convinced and proud than when the Dean had given me iny di- ^ploma. I gave John a leather wallet (Ihe storekeeper's best), as a symbol of our increased prosperity, and that night we had a big party •at home to commemorate what 'Bob in his initial toast called, "The founding ot the H. Republic." "Dynasty wouid be more like .it," 1 giggled. There was a moment's silence lor station identification. "Well, what do you know!" gasped Bob. "A baby!" exclaimed Agnes, as U she were solving a cross-word puzzle, and had just hit the missing four-leller key word, top row across. "Congratulations!" said Gert Shaw, for once too startled for profanity. Everyone seemed strangely -touched, as if 1 had announced .that John and 1 were going to try to swim the English Channcl- "We've got news, too," Bob said, after the first wave of wcll-wish- .ing had diminished. _ "Yes," said Agnes, "we're getting married at Christmas, and you'll all be Invited." There was another hubbub for •this, in which I worried about how il would attend at that late date. "Yes, sir," said Bob importantly. "It worked out fine for John oot to wait until he was complclely finished at the hospital, so we're doing it too." •Whal a party!" said John, when the last miest loft "Nice," 1 agreed. "Anyway, Ihc news is out now. and tomorrow, I'll tell my mother." r PIHS was a heroic job, and I had to keep twisting my wedding ring on rny linger, to convince myself that everything was proper. My mother, when she heard me out, was lorn belwecn the inherent pleasure of R prospective grandmother, and the apparenl worry and consequent displeasure of a mother. lint she was cxciled loo, and in a (ew days had circulated the news all over town like a special edition of a newspaper. "Why don't you take some law work?" John asked. My diploma was framed and hanging in his ollice, along with the enlarged photograph of In e in full graduation regalia, which lie fondly called "Mother and Child." "It'll do you good to keep busy, especially with school behind you," he added. "I've always noticed that Ihe women who hold on to a job as long as possible have the least complaints and are the happiest." "I have got my pretty stationery," 1 said thoughtfully, looking upon ttiis equipment of rny traiie like feathers to a fan dancer. "But 1 don't have clients." "That's easy," Jolm replied, and knew he had already gone over the matter in his own mind. "A number ol patients have noticed your diploma, and when I tell them you're a lawyer, they ask if you'd handle something fee Ujcrn. If you're willing. . . ." The very next day a Mrs. Pritchclt came in with her 8-year- old son Percival, demanding to see me. "I've got rights," she bellowed before 1 could even question her. "Imagine a hit-and-run driver knocking down my Percivall I'll sue him! I got his license number all right, before 1 picked Percy up. My poor Percy!' While she was 61ow..ig her nose, 1 started on Percy. lie was playing ball, he told me, only partially coherent, and he ran into the gutter after,his ball, when Die car came. "Almost killed him," Mrs, Pfilchelt waited at this point. "Did il hit yon?" I asked the surprisingly healthy looking child, who resembled a fullback for Noire Dame rather than an acci- dc-nt victim. "Almost," said Percy import- anlly. Tool!" shouted Mrs. Pritchct! clubbing him over the head with her handbag. "I loid you it hit you hard on your head!" "This is almost as bad as starting a medical practice," I told John thai night. "Only, thank heaven, we don't have to count on it for our living expenses, or else it might not be so easy to turn down those phonics." « • • OUT the next case that I got was a wonderful, real taste of unadulterated law. A Mrs. Slater, 50, gray haired, and respectable, came in to see Jotin, practically in nervous collapse. It appeared that her husband had had her arrested for stealing some of his personal properly, and the case was coming up next week. "He said he would get even with me for leaving him," she sobbed, looking as much like a thief as Sister Kenny or a Salvation Army colonel. "Oh, doctor what will I do?" John was diplomatic. "Have you a lawyer?" he asked. "No." she answered, "but Mrs. Ryan told me that your wife was art attorney. 1 can't pay much, but would she take the case for me?" Would I? At Ihe exact moment of acceptance, I was the spirii of Justice herself, scales, blindfold, and all; and Mrs. Slater went home with the happy assurance the new criminology wizard, none other than the famous Mrs. B. hers ell, would rescue her trorn the dragons at the hearing next week. Then I sat down and tried lo figure out just how I would accomplish this Dimming fcut.
