If you care for me at all, you'll take it." * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * The editor of the Sunday Supplement put his toothpick behind his ear and fixed Condy with his eyeglasses. "Well, it's like this, Rivers," he said. "Of course, you know your own business best. If you stay on here with us, it will be
