Ara's appealing cry confirmed the truth of Dawson's statement. Douglas glanced down at his shoes. The gray-brown mud accused him. "You were in the study, all right, listening to everything that Joey said to me," Dawson shot at him. "You heard us come out of the passageway, go into the living room. You stood, right where you're standing now and when Joey peered around the corner, you killed him. "Then you ran down the passageway to the street, doubled back across the lawn and climbed in the study window. You ought to know your way along that route pretty well by now, Douglas. It's the second time you've been over it.?' * * * "TTELLO, took — " DEGREES COOLER than the average of the 30 other of the largest- selling brands tested... coolest of all!

Sorry I Dan Flynn's greeting froze in his throat as he pushed through the front door, stared at the group gathered at the foot of the stairs. Before he could manage another word, he caught sight of di Torio's body. "Joey?" he asked, softly. '•Yes," Dawson replied. "Murdered. Just like Benthorne. Joey knew too much . . ." "He could have been a good guy, if he'd been on the right side of the fence," Flynn eulogised. "I'll miss bringing you in, Joey. . . ." "This man Douglas killed him," Dawson interrupted. "Put handcuffs on him and don't let him out of your sight. Don't let any of them out of your sight. Take them all into the living room and keep them there. . . . Krone, when did the coroner say he'd be here?" "Captain," Flynn began, "Just as I was coming in I got a hunch. i» "I don't care about your hunches," Dawson shouted, his anger mounting. "Get in that living room and stay there. When I have time to listen to your hunches, I'll send for you. Are you going to obey orders, Flynn?" "Yes, sir." Dawson turned back to Krone and di Torio's body. "I want that bullet first. Have it checked against the one that killed Ben- thorne and you'll find they're the snme. The gun was probably hidden in Benthorne's study all the time. After you finish with the coroner, have a look around but- side for the revolver, Douglas probably threw it into the shrubbery." "Maybe he brought it back into the study with him. I'll have a look. Get good pictures of all of this, Krone." He hurried into the study. * * * HpHERE was plenty of evidence that Douglas had come in the window. Dawson's eyes picked xip a moist outline of a shoe on the carpel by the window and outside he found almost perfect footprints. Douglas hadn't had the time to cover up his trail as he had last night. The gun would be found soon. Paraffin tests would cinch the case. Maybe the Chief would give Dawson a vacation. . . . Seemed to be a nice boy—this Douglas. . . . And all for an uncle he had never seen. And that girl —Ara—-how deep was she mixed up in this. Good kid, too. Had a lot of tough breaks. . . . Losing Douglas was only another one, Dawson looked up, started as Ara entered the study. "I told Flynn—" "But I convinced him I had something important to tell you." "I'll break that Irishman, so help me!" "Really, Captain, I couldn't go for. Officer Krone is at the foot of tlr- front stairs, Flynn is holding down the living room." "There's the passageway. ..." "I had forgotten it—so you see, I really wanted to see you. You're going to try to pin these murders on John, aren't you?" "It's a pretty clear case." "You believe, don't you, Captain," Ara went on earnestly, "that John came in the passageway, killed Benthorne, blocked the door, and went out the window?" "That's about it. And today he reversed the performance with Joey as the main actor. We've got him—" "You're wrong, Captain." This was a new Ara—a girl fighting not for hate, but for love. "John Douglas was not in the passageway last night. I know—I was there myself!" She hurried on before Dawson could voice a question. "I left the taxi as soon as it turned the corner, ran to the street entrance of the passageway. I opened the door and was feeling my way along the passage. "I intended to kill Benthorne, my father, and have John blamed for it. H« was going in the study window. He was to surpris* Ben- thorne, threaten him and force him to give up my proofs. John also wanted to make Benthorne tell how he got hold of the 'mine— But John never intended to kill him. "I've lived on hate so long, Captain. No one ever loved me. no one ever cared about me, except John. And I was fool enough to try to blame a murder on him. "I know better now. ... I love John. He's the first, the only person I've ever loved. I've hated all the others, even those who tried to help a little. You—you can't blame him for this Bcn- thorne murder!" * * * rjAWSON admired this changed •^ Ara. Ail the pretense, all the hardness, even 'the smoky, sultry lights in her eyes were gone. Instead he saw a girl in love—a girl who has found love for the first time. She was willing to do anything to save- the man she loved from the trap she had created. She was weeping quite unashamedly 'now, begging for John Douglas' freedom; But Dawson could not let sentiment, nor admir.ation, nor pity sway his decision. If she had proof. . . . "You were in the passageway, you said. Where wero yoli 1 when the shot was fired?" Ara resumed her story, a little more composed. "I was almost halfvyay to the hall door. I stood there terrified. Then the study door slammed. I was afraid someone would come down the passage, so I ran back to the street. I hid In the shadows and in a few minutes I saw Mr. di Torio come out of the passageway. I'm sure it was he. I saw his face when he stopped beneath a street light. "There's your killer, Captain. The man who killed my father is dead." "I don't think so—because—" * * * THEN minutes later she' rose to leave. 'It will be dangerous for you, but I'll try to see that -you are protected," Dawson assured her. "I'm not afraid," she said, eyes shining. "It's a chance I have to take to prove John is innocent." "By spreading the report that you, too, like Joey, actually saw the person who killed Benthorne, we may tempt the killer to strike again. But don't be surprised if Douglas tries to take a shot at you. He may have been planning to "put you 'on the spot' just as you were doing to him." "If John shoots at me, I hop* he doesn't miss!" she said. And Dawson knew she said it as if » prayer. (To Be Continued) Bowling Result* for Mondn.v December 4, 1139 Home Ire Co.

DALLAS Texas — The iiailas Cotton Bowl made its bid for the major Ne\v Year's Day football fiame Monday night with a formal invitation to] (|vc Texns A. and M. College and Tennessee to (.lay for the "luitiomil ehump- ionship." Both schools won.' offered a flat guarantee of $85,000 cash to meet in the Cotton Bowl <m New Year's Day. The offer was (ho largest ever of- lered a football team for n single game. Texas A. and M.'s football team way lo meet Tuesday to consider the cder from the Cotton Bowl and a tentative offer reportedly made by the New Orleans Sugar Bowl, ft was understood that Tennessee would hold fi similar meeting. Tlie "bank president's" offer to the two schools in an attempt to steal the show from the Sugar Bowl ann the 1 Rose Bowl at Pasadena, was made alter a bit of house-cleaning m the Cotton Bowl 'A's.socmtion to remove the enigma that the Dallas game was a "one mnn affair." J, Curtis San ford, promoter of the Cotton Bowl game for the last three years, announced the. formation of a new association on a non-profit making basis, with Dallas' outstanding civic leaders as the board of directors. Members of the new association j declined to reveal whether either j school had reacted favorably early i "feelers." Reorganization of the Cotton Bowl Association was not revealed until Haiuoid called a meeting of the new board of directors late Monday. "I have been working to form a non-profit organization lo sponsor the game?, and 1 believe that 1 now have a group of men who wiy do their most to perpetuate the prestige given the Dallas bowl by the three games played so far," Sanford said. The new,board of directors Is composed of Fred Florence, bank president, R. L. Thorton, bank president, Freeman Burford oil man, Na- Ihfin Adams, bnnk president, J. B, Adoue, bnnk president nnd president of the Dallas Chamber of Commerce. Sanford, Arch Underwood, cotton denier, Joe E.

The Polo Grounds are competing with the world champion Yankees for patronage. They are introducing night baseball in New York. They are seeking to climb out of the second division. All the Giants need are two starting pitchers, a catcher, three in-fiekl- ers and as many outfielders. They cannot possibly hope to get all that with what they have in the way ot trading material. They are willing to pay handsomely, but seldom are pennant-winning players peddled while they are sound. The Giants cracked up with Carl Hubbell's remarkable left arm, and rebuilding a hurling corps is a slow plWP«s. William Harold Terry would like 1 to land a more capable secon-strong catcher than Ken O'Dea to assist Harry Banning. The management asserts that Babi- Young, developed in the Southern Association, will be at first base, but nit one-time Fortlham Ham ha.s yet to qualify. Juigcs h- Only Giant Infielder Sun- of Jol> Bill Terry still has Zeke Bonura anu Johnny McCartny, but even Terry is. new convinced that Bonura's big bat does not cover his fielding sins. Terry gave up on McCarthy in 1938. There is no telling what Burgess Whitehead will do. The erudite North Carolinian became as unpredictable as he was reliable in pennant-winning campaigns. Mickey Witek will bu on hand from Newark, but he played shortstop for the Bears and ia another who ha.s yet to win his spurs. Bill Jurges at shortstop is the only Giant sure of an infield berth. Tom Hafey probably will be suplant- instead of one from AA clubs. That would put the Yankees in', danger of losing two players in the draft each year from their top farm outfits, Newark and Kansas City. ( Independent AA owners also will be heard from in good voice in opposition to the Browns' proposal. But under the chain store scheme, independent owners really don't count any more. EMICJU Mil a candidate, but the latter was nothing more than a utility man for the Jersey City Giants. In the oatfield Joe Moore is on the other side of the crest nnd Mel Ott's legs tied up on him late last season. The Giants know the 1939 club will not get to first base. The problem is how to get it thers, Next Year Harriett's Last As Active Hand Gabby Hartnett reluctantly announces that next season will be his last as an active catcher. Philip K. Wrigley wanted his present manager to quit the firing line two years ago. The owner of the Chicago Cubs explain;- that when he first signed Hartnett as a coach he paid him the greater part of his salary on such a tasis in the thought that perhaps the big backstop could be weaned to the bench. Phil Wrigley understands why Hart- nctt Wuiit.s to play . . . realizes why any player dislikes to give up the game. When Charley Grimm piloted the Bruins he always believed he could get out on first base and hold the club together. "But," explains Wrigley, "as long as; Hartnett catches we have to carry smother experienced man to assist him and he's No. 2. Then when we get a youngster he is No. 3 and he stays there for lack of work. Sooner or h.ter we,have to replace Hartnett and until he retires we won't have the opportunity to test his successor." Magnate Wrigley believes that Gabby Hartnett would be much farther ahead with the club now had he directed operations from the dugout from the clay he assumed command. That is where the late John McGraw ;:aid a manager belonged . . on the bench.

Tennessee, pushed clown to fourth position a week ago came rocketintl , back into second place after its de- [ fensively powerful exhibition against; Kentucky. Polling 19 first place votes, the Vols accumulated 741 points, to trail the Aggies by only 22 and leaci USC by 32. The Trojans got 18 nominations for first place, to 15 for Cornell, which dropped into fourth position. Tulane, practically a fixture in fifth, remained there for another week. Outside of Tennessee's rise and Cornell's drop, the major changes occurred in the lower half of the first ten. There UCLA, which has its own ideas about Southern California's eligibility for the Rose Bowl and will attempt to put them in practice Saturday ,came out of the second ten into ninth plate. Duquesne, tied by Detroit, in its final after winning all its other games, skidded from sixth to tenth; Duke advanced from sexenlh to sixth, Missouri from eight to seventh, and Iowa from ninth to eighth, while Holy Cross, tenth a week ago, dropped down with the last of the also-rans after its thorough defeat by Boston College.
