Today's crossword puzzle in the Chicago Tribune had the clue "Whatsits" for a seven-letter word. The answer? "Doodads"! Nice to know that the now little-used word which was the title of Ray's short story in the September, 1943 issue of John Campbell's ASTOUNDING (which never appeared in any of the collections of his stories) still shows up now and then.

Well, it is of course collected in Volume 2 of the Collected Stories series, edited by Jon Eller (and previously William F. Touponce).

The title in that volume is "Everything Instead of Something", which I'm guessing was Ray's preferred title. But in a sense you're right — Ray never chose it for any collection that he compiled himself.
