"You may, Wly.it did Alston do?" "He started up the back stairway — it's closer to Mrs. Benthorne's rooms — and told me to go to bed. . . . And he told me not to lull Mr. Benthorne that he— Mr. Alston — was in the house." "And then what did you do?" "I went directly to my quarters, sir. They're on the ground Moor, beyond the kitchen.

"It opens directly on the .street, sir," he explained. "Many of Mr. Benthorne's visitors used this entrance." * * » 44 A BOUT how long, Mr. Alston, were you in the house before you heard the shot?"

Then I decided to see Arnold, get his side of the story before seeing Helen. I started toward the study—I knew I'd find him there. Then I changed my mind again and went back up the stairs to Helen's room. I—I was afraid Arnold might be in a nasty mood. I didn't want to quarrel with him. I hoped to be able to settle this difference between him and Helen. "I had iust reached .the second locked. But when Flynn Krone tried to get in — " "Habit, sir, habit," Jameson apologized. "I've been locking up Mr. Benthorne's house for years, sir, every night at 10. Tonight I made rny usual rounds and slopped at Mr. Benthorne's study to .say good night to him. To tell the truth, sir, I forgot all about your order for the front door. "Mr. Benthorne seemed to be expecting someone, sir. He told me to unlock the side entrance — " landing when I heard the shot. I was terrified for a moment for it seemed to come from Helen's room, I hurried on up the slijirs, -•afne dowh. to Helen's rooT. I searched through her sitting roojn and bedroom—even looked into her bath—afraid that I might find her body. Then I came down the front stairs and -found your officers and Helen at the door of the study. You know the rest—" '1 can imagine your feelings, Mr. Alston," Dawson observed. 'Tell me," lie went on, "was Mrs. Benthorne angry or hy.jlerical when she called? Was this 'lift' so important that you would come in a storm at midnight? 1 ' Alston leaned forward, instantly alert. "I can see you're not a father, Captain," he explained indulgently. "When one's child Js hurt o storm makes no difference. The pain has to be eased, the hurt kissed away. Helen is my only child. I'd do anything to keep her happy." * * * rjAWSON filled his pipe, tamping it carefully, then lighted it. A cloud of smoke dimmed his direct gaze. "You didn't like Arnold Ben- thorne very well, did you, Aisle.*"" The words snapped through the air like electric sparks. "You're wrong, Dawson!" A!- ston countered angrily, meei:«U' the detective's eyes. "I was ve™ fond of Arnold. He was my son- in-law, my partner in Alston Motors." "You mean you married your daughter to him to save your precious Alston Motors!" "I wouldn't put too much faith in what you read in the papers, 1 ' Alston laughed, without mirth. "How much does it mean to you to have Benthorne dead?" Dawson fired a shot in the dark. Alston's sudden start told him he had scored a hit. Alston's wearied calm returned almost immediately. "You might as well know, Captain," he said slowly. "It will come out with the probating of the will. Upon my death full control—my shares—of Alston Motors were to go to Arnold. His— his death returns his holdings to me. We had arranged it that way for Helen—and any children she might have. No outsider will ever own Alston Motors." * * * HE slamming of the front'door interrupted him. Angry voices rose from the outer hall. Then Flynn pushed open the study door. "Here's Torio, Captain," he announced. "Says he's got an alibi. Better make it good, Joey!" And he shoved the angry, glowering night club proprietor through the Cotton's Little Sweeper doorway.

Bruce Catton Says: Sea 'G-Men' Crack Down On Careless Skippers By BRUCE CATTON NEA Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON The American freight steamer Iowa dropped down the Columbia river on a cold January morning in 193C and stuck her nose into the breakers.

Tlie inspector who had last checked on that vessel's masts was hauled on the carpet. This implied rebuke will be borne in mind by every inspector in the service. It says, in effect; when you have okayed a piece of equipment, it had better stand up until the next inspection—or else. Denis Strictly With Skippers The Bureau is equally hardboiled with ship captains. OVie was recently brought up for some infraction of the code, and his license was suspended. He was in his CD's, had an excellent record, and his company made a stirring plea that—since his infraction hadn't caused any damage—the Bureau temper justice with mercy. The Bureau admitted that all of this was true, but remarked that under the old system of tempering justice with mercy there was an average of about one bad sea disaster a year. Hence no leniency was shown. It was the same with two skippers whose ships collided. By skillful seamanship, they had prevented loss of life to passengers and crew, and were pretty generally hailed as heroes. But the Bureau suspended their licenses for a year. In other words, it enforces the regulations up to the hilt, takes no alibis and suspends no sentences.
