More than 100 doctors and their wives attended the get-acquainted party for the board of trustees and new hospital staff members. It was the usual cocktail party with plenty to eat and drink, and lots of small talk. But there was something unusual about the atmosphere. Missing was the smoker's haze that usually fogs up a room during cocktail parties, and not an overflowing ashtray could be seen During the two hours we were there I saw less than a dozen people smoking and most of them were sneaking off to indulge their habit. The one or two brazen individuals who t up while carrying on a conversation in a group received outraged : glances from the away. "Please don't smoke that cigarette," one of the women said to Glenn. "I have asthma and the smoke may cause an attack." He didn't talk to her very long. "These people are serious I about this no smoking busi- !ness, aren't they?" I asked one of the doctor's wives. "Absolutelyl" she replied. ',Hardly any of the doctors smoke anymore." She confessed that she was a "closet smoker" but wouldn't dare have a cigar- ette at hospital social functions. "A lot of the doctors won't even stay in the same room with you if you smoke," she said. I was beginning to feel an overwhelming craving for a cigarette even though I don't smoke very often, As for Glenn, he was puffing away nervously, bedng careful to stay away from the asthma sufferer. Temporarily, at least, he was smoking more and enjoying it less. Two weeks later we ran into the same anti-smoking bias when we made a trip by plane to Georgia. i "Smoking or non- smoking?" asked the reser- vationist clerk at the airport, explaining that smokers sit in the back of the plane. That was too much for Glenn, who was developing a complex about being socially undesirable. He settled uncomfortably into his seat in the non-smokers section, muttering and grumbling to himself. "What's wrong?" I asked. "This is dmcmmmation. he said indignantly. "It took this country almost 200 years to get the blacks out of the back of the bus, and now they're putting smokers in the back of the plane." He fumed in silence for awhile. "(Expletive deleted) it all," he said. "We smokers should organize a protest group and lobby Congress about discriminating against us. We're probably, an (expletive deleted} minority group. They can't isolate us from the rest of the American public. It's uncon- stitutional, that's what it Another prolonged period of silence while he stared out the window, deep in some gloomy, oppressed isolation. Then he lit a cigarette, inhaled deeply, glared beligerently around the cabin at the non-smokers, and delivered his last words on the subject. "I just might quit smoking!" So there, too! :::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: MONDAY-Corney Dogs, Baked Beans, Tater Tots, Mustard and Ketchup, Pud- ding with whipped topping.
