It 15 Quite likely, also, that the Planning Commission may be asked to consider the traffic problem and make some kind of recommendation for improvement of the situation. At present, Kayctlnville has some strccls bearing the same name, and some with two names In d i f f e r e n t blocks of.t.he identical street, (.(thcr irregularities exist. It is the plan of Ihc group 1 to work out tin arrangement where all streets r u n n i n g east and west will be streets, I hose running north and south will be avenues. This trend is followed to some extent at the present trine, but not extensively. The numbering system la completely 'haywire in some insfancra. A lew streets in Fayettcvlllc, for example, have houses with identical numbers hi two d i f f e r e n t blocks. Other irregularities in n u m b e r i n g exist, and should be worked out. A committee made up of Ernest Ward, Clay Yne and P l a n n i n g Commission Chairman W. H. Pryor will lake up the n a m i n g question, and a group composed of Vine Blumenbcrg, Garland Wheeler and Arch Cloud will tackle life n u m b e r i n g Issue. It appears probable t h a t the Planning Commission, once t b e t r a f f i c problem is turned over to the men and women on this commission, will suggest t h a t , a survey by professionals be made to d e t e r m i n e · what Ihc needs arc for improving the traffic situalion.

But Congress, which Is more respon- sihlc for lax f a v o r i t i s m t h a n sanctimonious members w i l l ever a d m i t , overrode FDR and put the quietus on any publicity regarding incomes. So solicitous were congressmen for the big t a x p a y - er t h a t they made it a c r i m i n a l offense to leak or publish any income tax dala. This has played i n t o Ihe hands of a lot of people, especially the Influence- pi-ddlers a n d those who deduct the expense of p r i v a t e yachls, p r l v a l e airplanes and expensive parties at the Stork Club or the Mayflower. This was how Larry Knohl. the t a x - f i x e r , was able lo t a k e Washington o f f i c i a l s on his p r l v a l e plane.

While some e n t e r t a i n m e n t expenses are j u s t i f i a b l e , It should be remembered t h a t the stenographer or salesgirl can't deduct Itie cost of t a k i n g the \w* to Ibe ball game or to d i n - ner at the Stork Club on tbe ground l h a t she's b e l n l n g to keep her .ioh.

Now and Ihen, the wind Rained and without changing the tempo, lashed the dance to deeper w r i t h - ings. A loose trumpet vine knuck led the pane. The moving air forced through tbe window sashes sn Ihiil the fresh d a m p smell of il was sharp as a bird's cry in the room; a freshness without chill, for there is rarely less t h a n body .temperature, in Ihe southern California spring no matter how threatening the show. Jennet knew she should b* 1 get- Ming dressed--it was p;ist 5:30-'but Ihe thought of Ihc Pelletier · party was hardly n spur. A doctor's parly--it had taken tier several married years to accept I lie 'misnomer. One dressed for these functions ns for a party, but there the similarity ended. A doctor's party, she had come io learn, was a gathering of bone-tired men and their resigned women who rose briefly to the artificial camarndcric induced by good whisky and good food, but whose urge to communicate sickened w i t h each interruptive phone call. The handful of men who survived . these calls ;md remained afler dinner sat in :t closed circle of professional exchange: ".Had a case just the other day . . ." On the other side of the room, as in early American churches, sat Ihe women. The elaborate meat, unleavened by mnle attention, made them not a l i t t l e sluggish, and since they frequently bad nothing in common beyond tbe calling of their husbands,, the conversation moved by eruptive revelation from a peak of likes and dislikes lo n low of the same. AI 11 tfO one of the doctors would stretch and nod to bis wife and apologize to the hostess fur an erirly operation in the morning, lately il was Jennet and Gus who were the first to leave. Hy 12 alt the guests would have de- pHrted. W i t h i n the week another doctors' party would have been scheduled, nnd the performance, varying only in menu, would be 'repeated--so docilely did these public servants accept the treadmill of their social intercourse. Jennet, herself, was not unused to the uniform of docility. She wore it out of long habit to hide nnd to punish the welter of rebel- 'lion and strong feeling that would ·hove robbed her of lovr. Somehow the garment was becoming; more ·and more restrictive, the habit of [pleasing others mote and more 'unpleasant. Perhaps bccmise no one, not even (Jus, any longer plowed her. · · * JVOW, when (Jus n*«drl the patience and coiuiitemlinn of a loving wife, she was dismayed to And that her love of him had de- sfrted h«r, !W« had to fore* tt, or ·t feast, tht MmMuMn .of. it, and. .1 A doctor's party, she had come lo Itarn. wan a gathering of bone- tired men and their resigned women. there were limes when the effort made her almost hale both Gus and hcisclf. Instead of pitying his illness she felt betrayed by it. She had thought she had married strength, R rock of a man who would be H bulwark to the buffet- ings of. her own insecurities. She had waited for and found a man who would serve as a shield between her and an indifferent world, as her pit rents had not; who would guarantee her the privileges 6f unassailed sober citizenry, as her father had not. langing back from maturity, she had sought through marriage to wangle what she felt was owed to her, even though the da'lc for payment had passed. At 24, she had si ill wanted to be babied, protected, indulged -- and t h a t was the k i n d of love Gus Logan offered. Gus had more t h a n fulfilled tbe courtship promises. He had given her protective love nnd marilal fidelity. He had worked to the limit of his strength to bring her those prizes which have enduring market value and snob appeal: a social niche, a home of her own, furs, jewels. And for a doctor who had only bis time and knowledge to sell, these things were not easily come by. The trouble was that, while Jennet was growing up, (Jus wax growing old. Ho had earned rest; he was just finding the courage for stimulation Jennet jumped up. Better not o probe i n t o these things. Trouble was, she had too much lime lo lie around and t h i n k . She'd have lo keep busier, embark on some sort of work project t h a t would fill her days nnd lire her for the hlr, Tbe important thing, she dad been advised by Gus's doctor, was to m a i n t a i n a calm nnd normal life. Jennet mounted the stairs to her bedroom. Methodically she lit Ihe- lamps t h a t expelled the restless dusk and reduced Ihe world to a snuggrry of braided rugs nnd Dutch curtuins, of crewel wall- covering, of c o m f o r t i n g Christ- py reds and greens. The room was now her own. Gus slept in the. downstairs d f n to eliminate stnir-elimbing, and with him had (one the desk, the valet stnnd, the ookcnse of medical journals, the television set, Ingrid, the maid, who never permitted herself to open .Jennet's ourcau drawers, had set mil on the chaise lonffiic her freshly laundered underthiARK, piled them In neat I**tcl The phone rang.

She. took the steps lightly, paused on the landing and twirled.: "Like it?" He look her in his arms, kissed her carefully al the side of her lipstick. "Beautiful -- and you'rt just the girl to fill if. You smell good, too--ummm. ic it a new 1 gown?" The word "xown" irked her, sounded dated, aging both of! them. "Sort of." She leaned back; against his arms, peering into his face. "Gus Logan, have you gol' a cold? Ynu look eoldy." He. let go of her and took the, handkerchief from his b r e a s t j pocket. "No, 1 don't think so." Hc[ blew bis nose. "Must be allergy, or something." , She followed him into tbe den,; seated herself with a thought- for- the folds of her taffeta petticoat.

But you can always count on him to do the unexpected, just as he was doing when he was 5our. "So I'd go easy, if I were you chaps, on forecasting what he's likely to tell your Congress when he addresses it next Thursday. He may surprise you. He may surprise even tiimself." One of the reporters around the :able. an American, nodded, "Like before D-day in the late war," he said. " C h u r c h i l l , you (now, was dead set against an invasion of the south of France.

Then he said, ·with t h a t chuckle, of his: "'The p r i n c i p l e seems the samp. Tbe water still keeps falling over.' " . Nut Much Water The v i s i t i n g Englishman laughed.
