To tie to. " Here is one of those strange polar groupings of youth and old age which , in Heinlein , cancel all possibility of individual growth be­ tween these extremes . Things here remain frozen and static. It is not Joe (the " inveterate bachelor" ) who will remain single , but Archie . His relation to Amanda holds this society intact: not only do they meet regularly, but they prosper-for Archie , "business is good . " " Universe " and " Common Sense " (194 1 ) form a narrative whole. I t i s often regretted, however, that Heinlein wrote the sequel to the first story .

Inter­ estingly, Joe-Jim literally incarnates this fatal division of the human intellect. His lack of will and purpose is the direct result of his doubleness: as his heads carry on their futile discussions, he becomes inoperative . True, Heinlein gives Joe-Jim a glorious death in action. We note , however, that the mutant performs heroically only after he has lost one of his heads . Physically, Joe-Jim is part of fallen, unregenerate mankind.

It is, ultimately, the power to make the act of faith, to give one ' s life without as­ king why . Mrs . Keithley and her diabolical plan to rule the world reappear. In the short scene that closes "Gulf, " there is a flurry of schemes and ludicrous maneuvers-but the effect they produce is the opposite of suspense .
