Daniel Eiscnberg, head of the Skip Tracers Co. of New York City, wasn't sure he had heard right, "Pardon me, sir," the dapper little detective asked, "but did you say: 'I want you to shadow me'?" "Precisely," said the handsome visitor to the Skip Tracers Co. skyscraper offices. "1 want you to shadow me." "But ..." "I'll explain," the man continued. "You sec, it's this way: I have, I don't mind telling you, a girl friend. A dancer. And my wife suspects it and I'm afraid she has gotten a detective agency here in New York to follow me.

Once, for instance, Mr. Eisenberg was asked to locate a butler. Another time a fox terrier with a black spot on hiK neck. He got a larger fee for this, by the way than he got for discovering two men who had been missing for .seven years. Not so long ago Mr. Eisenberg was called in by one of the larger insurance companies to cooperate with their own detectives in locating a man who had "walked into the ocean and vanished." The insurance company was an interested party because the man was insured for $18,500 and his wife wanted the money. The company .smelled fraud.

The Mil-prise move recalled that Wall Streeters and New Dealers have been blaming each other in part for the present business recession. Some administration advisers have accused Wall Street of "leaning on its shovel" while their critics have blamed restrictions imposed by the government. Dcuglas said figures on the activity of Exchange members in recent stock market slumps "serve only to fortify further the conclusion, indicated repeatedly in our studies, that members of the Exchange trading for their own account either create the daily price fluctuations or else contribute materially to their severity."

Outwitting Clever Quarry Then there was the suspicious wife who wanted her husband followed. Another detective agency had failed to keep the gentleman in sight. It didn't take the Skip Tracers Co. long to find out why. Their quarry was a cutie. He was just as suspicious as his wife and knew all the tricks of finding out if anybody was on his trail . . . he would drive slowly in his auto, then race it, then suddenly slow down. If he still hadn't satisfied himself that he was being trailed, he would whip around a corner into a one- way street—the wrong way. If a car followed, he knew he was being trailed and then he would set about eluding the shadow. Mr. Eisenberg got around all this by planting a small boy on the rear bumper of Mr. Flyaway's auto and proceeded to let the hunted escape the hunters The small boy, of course, got the house number of the rendezvous, and the rest was simple.
