ROUND UP

called up Mrs. Dittmar. Mrs. Dittmar expressed her sympathy in baby talk and said it was all right for Mr. Shelton to come alone; it was more than all right, Mrs. Shelton gathered, because Mrs. Dittmar's brother was visiting her and they would be just eight.
Shelton, who had learned long ago that his wife did not want him around when her head was threatening to burst open, stayed in town until six o'clock, preparing himself for the evening's task with liberal doses of the business manager's week-old rye. He was not going to be tortured by any drought such as he had endured at the Frenches'. He arrived at the party in grand shape and, to his surprise, was plied with cocktails potent enough to keep him on edge.
Mrs. Dittmar's brother (she called him her dreat, big B'udder) was an amateur jazz pianist. Or rather, peeanist. He was proving his amateur standing when Shelton got there and something in the way he treated " Rhapsody in Blue " made Shelton resolve to open fire at once. His eagerness was increased when, on the way to the dining room, Mrs. Dittmar observed that her b'udder had not played much contract " either " and she must be sure and not put them (Shelton and B'udder) at the same table, for they might draw each other as partners and that would hardly be fair.
Dinner began and so did Shelton.
" A week ago," he said, " you folks criticised my bridge playing." The Camerons, Dittmars and Frenches looked queer.
" You didn't mind it, I hope," said Mrs. Dittmar. "`Ve were
just trying to teach you."
" I didn't mind it much," said Shelton. " But I was just wondering whether it was good manners for one person to point out another person's mistakes when the other person didn't ask to have them pointed out."
" Why," said Cameron, " when one person don't know as much
about a thing as other people, it's their duty to correct him."
" You mean just in bridge," said Shelton. " I mean in everything," said Cameron.
" And the person criticised or corrected has no right to resent
it? " said Shelton.
" Certainly not ! "
" Does everybody here agree with that? "
" Yes," " Of course," " Sure," came from the others.
" Well, then," said Shelton, " I think it's my duty to tell you,
Mr. Cameron, that soup should be dipped away from you and not
toward you."
