CHAPTER VIII CERGEANT DOLAN looked at the telephone number he had Jotted down, the one which Harry Hutchins called the night before at 12:20. "Buckminster 11434. That's Brooklyn. Not your number, by any chance?" * Cilly shook her head. "The Buckminster exchange is in Flatbush," she reminded him. She had an idea whose number it was. Dolan dialed "Information." He inquired the name of the party at Buckminster 11434 and wrote the name down in his little book. "Party named A. G. Harmon," he remarked to Cilly, It vas as she had thought. Harry h« d hurried home to call Gloria Harmon. She was glad that she had made it quite definite that Amy was not in love with him. * * • CERGEANT DOLAN stood up. He looked in toward the bedroom. Cilly stood up too, and watched him nervously. "He's going to look around," she thought. "He'll find the postcard under my pillow. He'll surely find it." But he didn't go into the bedroom. To Cilly, he said: "I wonder if the young lady left any pers'onal information . . . any letters, for example. Or an address book. Might find some relatives or friends in that whom you don't know about." Cilly went over to the bureau. "Amy kept all of her things in here," she offered. "I'll look through it . . ." She opened the top right drawer. Amy's black pocketbook caught her eye. She handed it to the sergeant. Dolan went through the bag, glancing at each item and laying it on the bureau. A compact and lipstick. Five dollars and some change. A bankbook. (He noticed that it showed a balance of ever two hundred dollars, made up of small, fairly regular deposits. That was not unusual for a girl with a good job.) A booklet on ;he care of a permanent wave. A timetable. * * * TIE laid the empty bag on the bureau and looked more closely at the timetable. Cilly looked at it too, a little fearfully. What's this?" he asked. "Southern Pacific timetable. Was Miss Kerr planning any vacation?" "Southern Pacific," Cilly thought. "Why, that goes to . . ." With elaborate carelessness, she said: "Not that I know of. I suppose we all consider a trip to Hollywood at one time or another." She wasn't really sure that the Southern Pacific went to Utah. "Hollywood, eh? Well, that might be ... No! Here's some place she's checked off. Bluefields. Bluefields, Utah. Ever hear her mention that?" Cilly's eyes widened. Her heart quickened, but she made a desperate effort to appear casual. ''She never said anything to me about Utah," she answered. That was the truth. Amy never had mentioned it. But the clipping was from a Bluefields paper. And Jim's postcard, so perilously close. What would Dolan say if he found it under her pillow? He would know that she had deliberately hidden it. But fortunately Dolan looked no further in the bedroom. He put the timetable into his inner coat pocket. Cilly knew that he would get in touch with the police at Bluefields, Utah. He'd check up with them just as he planned to check at Interlaken, New Hampshire. What would be the outcome? What mystery would they dis- jso, Miss Pierce?" cover in Amy Kerr's past? Would «j t would see m The bridge-table had been set up against the di^an, with three smaller chairs at the other sides. Amy had beerf sitting on the divan. Dolan pulled the table out. He picked up one of the cushions from the divan. "Who sat here?" he asked. "Amy sat there. She and I were partners. I sat over here." Dolan reached down and picked something up, something which had been tucked under the cushion. "She did, eh? What's this little note? More cheating?" * * * TT was just a scrap of paper torn from the score-pad. Probably the top sheet with some old scores on it, Cilly thought, which they had neglected to remove. Then she saw that it was nothing so casual to Sergeant Dolan. He frowned darkly as he read it. He looked at Cilly sharply as he held the note out to her: 'Who wrote this?" he demanded. , Cilly read it. As she did so, the color left her face. She felt as if she had been struck a surprising blow. Her knees trembled. A sudden nausea overcame her. The scribbled words on the paper said: "Meet me up on the roof after we break up here." And they had definitely, undeniably been written by Jim Kerrigan. ,"Who wrote it?" Sergeant Dolan repeated. He looked back at the score- pad, as Cilly hesitated. "It wasn't Hutchins, because this is his writing here. So it must have been the other young man. Youv friend Kerrigan. Isn't that 1938 Studebaker to Be Shown Here Archer Motor Company to Display Model in New Sales Rooms Returning home from a trip through the Studebaker factory and a sales conference with the Studebaker executives three men from Archer Motor company, local Studebaker dealer, arrived here Thursday driving now 1938 cars, which they will use to demonstrate the new line to the public. The cars will be displayed at the showrooms of. Archer Motor company located at Third and Walnut. A presentation of the new car is expected soon, according to Mr. Archer the local Studebaker dealer, who described his trip to South Bend aod the welcome he and his men received at the Studebaker plant. "We enjoyed ourselves immensely," Mr. Archer said. "The program presented was one of the most interesting and instructive ever offered to any group of business men, such as the Studebaker dealer organization. "The cars were put through their paces at the 800-acre Studebaker proving ground," Mr. Archer continued, "demonstrating in every conceivable manner, the way Studebaker engineers test cars for performance, comfort and safety many months before the finished automobile is presented to the public." The local dealer and his men were impressed most of all by "The Studebaker Cavalcade," a presentation of the history of The Studebaker Cor- proation from the early beginning of the 85-year old manufacturer to the present day, which incluued the announcement of important Studebaker activities for 1938. Unlike any other automobile history and fact presentation, the "Cavalcade" was shown in musical revue fashion, a stage show and motion picture, which offered an entire afternoon of educational entertainment. Enthusiasm rides high among ali Etudebaker dealers, the local automo- ive man reports and the outlook for Great New Field House at IL of A* Spanish Dancer to Open Concert Session in 4,300- Seat Auditorium FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.—The University of Arkansas will use her new field house as an auditorium for the first time, October 7, when Sarita, Spanish dancer, is presented in recital by the student affairs committee. The largest auditorium in the state, with a seating capacity of 4,300, the new field house will be used for programs in an artists course that in- iludes such stellar attractions as the J. S. Navy Band, Nino Martini and Jose Iturbi. Students will be admitted on activity tickets. The public will be admitted on a small admission charge. Appearing on the program with Sarita will be Velazco, her dancing partner, and Ricardo Romero, pianist and composer. it affect Jim Kerrigan in any way? Cilly felt certain that it couldn't— yet Jim was on his way to Utah this very minute. Her head spun with the ever-increasing questions which popped into her mind. * * * CERGEANT DOLAN was back in ^ the living room. He walked over to the bridge table, looked down at it. Glanced at the score pad critically. "Who kept score?" he asked carelessly. "Harry Hutchins. Why?" "Cheated his opponents out of two hundred. Should be 1440 here instead of 1240." He grinned. Even as Cilly considered the pettiness of Harry Hutchins, she marveled at Sergeant Dolan's quickness in catching the error. Nothing would escape the man. Not the slightest thing. mitted, weakly. so," Cilly ad- She sat down in a chair. Her legs refused to support her any longer. She was frightened— wildly frightened^ "So that's it!" Sergeant Dolan went on brutally. "Mr. Kerrigan was up on the roof with the young lady. Now the question is, what were they doing up there? Was it a friendly visit — or did they have a quarrel? Doesn't look so good, does it, Miss Pierce?" Cilly did not answer. . "You're quite sure," Sergeant Dolan asked, "that last night wasi the first time Kerrigan and Miss Kerr met? Sure they didn't know each other before?" ; .','I'm sure they didn't," Cilly replied. Yet even -as the words left her lips, she remembered the sudden light that had dawned in Amy's eyes as she met Jim ...
