The Amador had her prow agsinst the dark bank, tied fore and aft to the trees. Crotch's ore-laden barges snubbed fast beside her. She had been met by the upriver San Diego at this point and both Navigatoin boats had made fast for the night There was no thought in Crotch's mind the two boats thus increased the odds c-gainst him; he was merely doubling his chances of dealing a major setback to Jamison. Crotch rang off his engine, drifted against the bank a good 50 yards above the Amador. Safeties let go as his head of steam began escaping. The Cocopah Indians stood at the port rail fore and aft, ready to throw their lines, out shoremen failed to appear to receive them ; from this Crotcn judged Jamison had already talked and no one in Castle Dome wanted to take sides in what was coming. He dragged a sleek-bsrc-Ied revolver from its holster beside the wheel, thrust it inside his waistband. Then he tossed Goss a vicked look. "Comin 1 , Ben?"

They waved mockingly as Crotch came in closer, and Crotch knew neither captain was disturbed to see him rere. The San Diego was a trim single- ender of 30 feet greater length than Crotch's ship, with a pointed prow and heavy hog-framing and a circular pilothouse perched cagelike atop her texas. She was virtually as luxurious as the Amador, but much older, and her hull and. underwater timbers were rotten. "You get a stiff passenger aboard for cargo?" Jamiron called down, and his tone carried a taunting laugh. Obviously it was a joke sbcard the San Diego th&t Jamison had refused to carry the pine box from La Paz. taking only the ore barges. Crotch strove to remain cool in i.pite of the heat that swept through him. "Run out a plank, Jamison. You and I are going to talk freight rates! "How much did you offer to haul their stuff for? Whatever it is, you'll raise it five times if you're to crowd us off the river." Jiamison took that, his passengers listening in with rapt attention. Along the river it was understood he owned half the stock in the Navigation combine, the balance divided between Maddix and Calhoon and three or four lesser hirelings. By this time Crotch was thoroughly aroused and he lifted his voice hoarsely. "You try and The tone of her words brought him up still. He caught her fluttered breath. "Captain, what is it? Chung is not well?" Gold-coast freighting had left little beauty in Crotch, either in. his physical makeup or in his soul that ha,d been tempered in salt brine and riverbcat steam.

The $7.700-a- j year code clerk pleaded guilty yesterday in federal court in Alexandria, Va., to a charge that he used government secrets "in a manner prejudicial to the safety and interests of the Unit ed States." The State Department disclosed that Petersen passed the information along to a man identified as J. A. Verkuyl, a Netherlands civil servant and former officer in the Dutch army. The Dutch government admitted it had exchanged "secret intelligence" with Petersen during and after World War II but was under he assumption that Petersen's su- >eriors had authorized it.
