"The Three Veterans." Leane Zugsmith.

One-minute review: Doctor’s waiting room. Three older women who look very much alike, including gaps in their front teeth. The doctor dominates and patronizes them, using sarcasm to put them and other patients down. Socialized medicine. “Just because it’s free don’t mean we aren’t human beings.”

75 Short Masterpieces: Stories from the World’s Literature. Ed. Roger B. Goodman. New York: Bantam Books. 1961. These summaries do not do justice to the vividness of the stories. RayS.
