Look, Pyotr K u z m ic h ," she said to the one-arm ed man, " I w ould like to settle one thing before the beginning of the meeting. " "W e 'll talk about business la te r," Tsipyshev interrupted her. "N o w we must hold our meeting. The rayon com m ittee has been insisting for a long time that we hold two meetings a m onth, and we can't even get together and agree on the m in­ utes for one of them . " At this Ivan Konoplev gave a snort, and for a brief moment Tsipyshev again seemed to feel awkward and unsure of him ­ self.

Asked one of the two boys who had been in the office before. "R ig h t on tim e ," replied Pyotr K uzm ich. "Just right. " A draft of cool air from the street filled the room . The lamp burned brighter, stools w ere moved around. A w indo w was opened. "It's aw fully smoky in h e re ," clam ored the girls. W hen the young people appeared, A kulina Sem yonovna straightened up and took off her kerchief. These were people of her own age, and with them she felt freer. Sergey Shchukin too began circu lating; he tightened his necktie and attached him self to the girls' com pany.

The stonem ason came w ith his w ife and three irre p re s­ sible sons; even in a two-room suite the old couple never had a m inute's rest from the stormy high spirits of their un ­ ruly offspring. The new directo r listened sadly to the rattle of the balls on the broken-dow n public billiard tables, w h ile a m agnificent table stood useless and w ithout purpose in the vacant apart­ m ent; the same sickly feeling came to him when he saw the waitresses with their faces glued to the w indow s of the television room — the cram ped view ing hall could hardly hold the vacationers.
