She scratched her car with her pencil
as she read and reread the card. She
grabbed t.hp telephone to call a physi

with tho number, she slammed the re
ceiver up, sharply and scratched her car
again. "This might be figurative lun-
BUuge," she said to hcrse!'. "It his
heart Is busted, maybe ho needs a love
broker worse than a physician. It Is
a question whether a love broker, oven,
can do anything for a passlonato Ital

thought aha remembered that It might
b difficult for a medical doctor to do
much for a man with a really busted
heart, In case tho language did not mean
to ho figurative.
