What if men did not understand so long as they were respectful and even kind?
The Danger of Niacin
Life was good and worth the living. What more could one ask? A group of students passed him and two—athletes from the bars on their sweater arms—touched their caps and called him sir. A girl from the library followed him with her glance a little way and without knowing it he walked the straighter.
Indeed, life was good. Professor Lowry, sir. It was an anemic book-delver, assistant to an assistant in some department. The young man was a little out of breath and he took a moment or two, standing there and wringing a wretched cap in his hands, the better to talk clearly. Sir, Mr. Jebson saw you pass by and sent me after you. He wants to see you, sir. Thank you, said Lowry, turning and retracing his steps until he came to the curving pathway which led up to the offices. He did not wonder very greatly at being summoned, for he was not particularly afraid of Jebson.

And each passing year had dug a little deeper in the austere lines which furrowed his rather unkindly face. Jebson was motionless, for it was his pride that he had no nervous habits. Lowry waited. Jebson, at last, opened a drawer and took out a newspaper which was partly printed in color; this he laid out before him with great care, moving his pen stand so that it would lie smoothly.

Lowry, until then, had felt peaceful. He had forgotten, completely and utterly, that article in the Newspaper Weekly. But even so he relaxed again, for certainly there was nothing wrong in that.
