And she, In flaring plaid organza and n nficer-mink stole, found reassurance if not satisfaction, first in miniature, in Gus's glasses, and behind them, in the magnified fondness of his eyes. The door opened, shattering inward focus, and they broke into excuses for being late.

It was very much as .Jennet had a n t i c i p a t e d . Two couples she had m«;t at other doctors' parties whose names she would again forget. One couple she had not met, t h o u g h Gus knew them.

"Rut the.re are differences. For one thing, I've never had to develop a bedside manner." · * · J^VERYONE laughed al t h a t , and since Jennet had found his tongue, the women began to ask him about atomic medicine. Suri- nov talked simply and well, w i t h no f u m b l i n g for words, no pomposity. Curiously e n o u g h , h i s vniro held all the assurance which is body propulsions lacked. ''The isotopes,'* he explained, "arc made M Oak Ridge hy exposing certain elements like phosphorus or gold to the atomic pile!

The invitation was issued so generally that it occurred to Jennet that this young man might be more shy than cold or superior. There were m o r e questions. What diseases did it cure? How was it administered to patients? "Ah, now you're getting into the clinical side of the picture," Suri- nov said. "That's Dr. Pelkitier's territory." Dr. Pclletier laughed and said) they were all getting as bad as: the nose doctor whose practice j was so specialized that he treated only the left nostril. Having withdrawn from the table conversation, Surinov attended to Jennet. "And what is your specialty, Mrs. Logan?" "My specially? I don't have I one. I'm not particularly good at anything." ; "Do you have children?" I "No, none." j "That's unfortunate. How, then,: do you spend your life?" j . . .

But No Happy Ending Yet In Sight; Trouble In Far East Looms; Red Invasion Seen By JAMES MARLUW Washington -W'l- Behind closed doors. Secretary of State Acheson told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee the position of the free world is somewhat better than it was a year ago. So far as it goes, lhat's right. It doesn't fa far enough. Trcsi- duc'.ion Is "far below What It should be." lie called for an investigation of the whole, mobilization program. A for Kuropc-- while, we nnd our allies have more (divisions there now than a year ago, they're hardly enough lo stop the Russians on land, al- Ihough we mifiht stop or slow denl Truman, in his mcssnge to; them by atomic bombing. Congress, gave the rounded picture when he said this is a ''crucial year." A year ago the Chinesr Communists had us in such had shape there was talk we might abandon Korea. Now we have ihem in a position where they're t a l k J n g truce. That's some improvement. Lafit year when Atlantic' pad troops in Europe were in skeleton shnpe, there was some fear the Russians mlirht attack before spring. Now the number of At- l a n t i c pact divisions is larger. Last year at this time defense nroclucliftn was far worse off than now. Defense Mnbllizcr Wilson says in Ihe past year "we have come a long way along the road toward a mighty America." While Ache-son talked to the Senate's Foreign. Relations Committee, Gov. Omar Bradley, head of the joint chiefs of staff, was lalkinj: to It* Armed Services Corrtmltlec: behind closed doors. Later Chairman Russell. Georgia Democrat, reported Bradley said Ihe joint chiefs have military plans ready if the truce ialks with the Chinese fail. This might indicate we could whip the Chinese if we tried. Rut Senator-Morse. Oregon Rfi- So, while (he Allied position has improved somowlint in Ihe areas just mentioned, it is a Ion* way from a happy ending. At Ihe same time KIR picture has darkened in other areas. This country has made it clear \ve believe fhe greatest danger to the free world is a Russian attack in Western Europe and stopping them, or discouraging them from starting, is our No. I job. It's just possible the Russians don't consider an attack on Western Europe their No. 1 job. Setbacks For England In this past year our strongest ally. Britain, has suffered tremendous setbacks in Iran and Egypt, both part of the Middle East which Is vital to the west. Thp strength and position of thr ·.vp?t have been badly damaged there, which is to the interest of Russia. And while we haggle 'about · truce with the Chinese Communists on Korea, reports flow from Ihe Far East about a buildup nf Communist forces for ah invasion of Indochina where another Western Ally. Krancr, has been fight- in c off Communist guerillas for five. year?. The struggle in Indochina has . publican and a member of R u s - j drained France of men and monty. sell's committee which heard j If an invasion starts there we'll Bradley, also spoke to reporters and he said: "When we t a l k about holding a line in Korea because we are not in a posture 16 conduct an of- fcnsivp. we had better begin to give the boys what they need."

Mow I must take over all thf responsibilities of the house inolud- in« the care of a 3-year-old brother whom I can't manage. I am I."). 7 don't mind the work, but since my sister hns been earning money she rlocsn't have to do a n y t h i n g at home at a l l . I must always be the one to stay at home and mind the younger children at night, even if T liad a previously planned evening. My sister doesn't even pay board. Do you think this is fair? .lonn L. Answer: Your sister isn't lo blame for shirking her home responsibilities: this is her pnrents' fault. The mere fart t h a t she has a job is no excuse to avoid all other \voik. A wage-earner does, undeniably, enjoy more prestige ( a n d consequently more privileges) in most homes than does the student. Ynur sister, being but newly arrived in the ranks of the salaried, is t n k i n c more advantage of the situation than i.» just. In due time, when her chosen lot has lost much of the glamour it now holds, she'll corns down to earth. About all you ran do. Joan, unless your parents are willing to co-operate with you, is wait u n t i l big sis realizes how u n f a i r she is. Pirrnt* Wronc Here Parents make a big mistake when they exalt a wage-earner to high station. What they arc do- ing is making very apparent the fact t h a t in their home the most important, thing is to bring in money. Such an attitude induces the younger members nf htft family to rush out lo work as ?oon as possible, ahandnning all attempts to acquire an education. This may he the very result for which Ihe parents hope: if they are mori* interested in financial gain than in their children's welfare, no effort will be made to keep youngster.-: in school as long as possible. Of course, as each child in turn takes his place in the business world, he, too, will relinquish particjpa- tion in the home routine. Family solidarity itself suffers as a consequence. The proper f a m i l y interchange of give and take will see that a tired member is relieved of ta.sks now nnrl then: though never should it be accepted as a general practice thai any one child be exempt from a l l household work.
