P ° nS ' D1Uty Justice Is Pitted Against Power Democratic nations that have survived the onslaught of the international power trust are standing on the sidelines these clays, applauding the effective defense of little Finland against invasion of the Big Red Bear The wwtM was a little surprised that Finland didn't fall the way Poland did m the wake of superior force. f E*P°nents of the junice-will-prevail philosophy are becoming more confident that, in the end the squnky Finns will beat off their bul.lyish neighbors. That is, of course, what everyone in the United States would like !„ see happen. The early days of the undeclared war have been hearU-nm- for do- mcx-racy s friends.

Dawson smiled at the success pf his scheme. "Mrs. Beijthorne, this cat is yours? 1 ' Dawson asked pleasantly. "What if it is? It's not against the Jaw to own a cat, is it?" she challenged. "No. . . . But in this instance it may be almost that." Dawson watched her carefully. The cat, catching sight of the milk, mewed loudly, "This cat, I believe, may have an important bearing upon your husband's murder. It is quite possible that it was used with the idea of creating the impression that your husband's death was s u i c i d e — r and then something slipped up. At any rate it was sufficiently important to be mentioned in Mr. Benthorne's note — " "Npte?" she asked incredu- Jousjy. "Yes, your husband left a note. 'It has been most helpful to us. you may read it, if you wish." When she handed it back to him, her face was ashen. "So he knew . , . he knew," she mur- inured. "Your efforts to hide thiB cat, to steaj out, unobserved, to feed it --in the light of this note—all look most suspicious," Dawson continued evenly. "Even you will Adroit that." "I can readily see why you •would suspect — how you would reach certain conclusions," she amended hastily, as some o£ her poise returned. "But I can easily explain. I just remembered, downstairs, that I hadn't fed Satan. And about the note — "You see, I am quite superstitious, too. Even more so than Arnold. You'll recall that just before Mr. di Torio was — was shot, we lighted three on a match, and 1 remarked about it." Dawson nodded. "I guess I was responsible for the 'three on a light' o£ Arnold's note, too. "About a month ago this cat . pame t9 the house. It's ggocl luck to have a black cat come to you, so I immediately adopted it. But Arnold hated cats so — especially black ones — that I kept Satan hidden out in the garage. "Last night he got out and crossed Arnold's path as he walked in from the garage. Arnold was terribly upset about it and I was afraid he'd kill Satan if he discovered him. So I left the house, after dinner, and hid him in the closet in the garage loft. "Returning to the house, I found Arnold with this — this girl — " "Miss Johnson?" Dawson suggested. "Yes, phe claimed to be hi;; daughter by a previous marriage. I did not believe her, und she threatened to make trouble . . . create a scandal. After .she left Arnold and I quarreled." Eenlhowo, dur- v:ith your hu?.- tli.-it you would was much yet to be told, and Dawson's silence indicated that he expected her to continue. At last she went on. "It was during that quarrel that Arnold said those terrible things. ... I can never forgive nor forget them. ... He told me that the girl was his daughter, that he had abandoned her mother 20 years ago in. Salt Lake City. He told me, too, that he never loved me, but that he wanted to be somebody in society and he needed a rich wife to attain that ambition." She covered her t'^ct- v.'iih her hands, as if to shut out llu- memory. "But you told me you loved your husband." Daw.-jon was surprised when slip looked at him again, dry-eyed. "I lied, ju-;t a:-: I've lied all my married life. I hated Arnold Ben- thorne from the moment I May/ him. I married him to save rny father's business. "But Arnold wouldn't even permit me that victory. As he raved on in his anger, he told rne lie had been buying Alston Motors secretly, that he intended squeezing my father complc-te-iy out of the company Dad's genius had created. Arnold not only wanted to take his daughter, but his business also. It would have left Dad nothing. "I told Arnold I would divorce him, that I would tell rny father everything. And he laughed at me. And thwi— Uieo he me. "I ran to my room, locked the doors and called my father. I begged him to come for me. I told him everything. 1 was waiting lor him when Arnold was shot." "You were waiting for your father—but you were already undressed and in bed. How do you explain that?" Dawson parried. "I had undressed before going to the garage to hide the cat. After my quarrel with Arnold I was loo angry, too hysterical to even notice Ural I wasn't dressed. I would have L'one with Dad just as I was . . ." T~\A\VSON paused momenfnrily as he weigher! hi ; next question. "Did yon, Mrs. ing your quurrol band tell him kilt him?" For on instnnt :he eoulu not answer. "How did you know that?" "It is not unusual in the heat of a bitter argument to malic such threat," Dawson s'.iid. "But. in this case it was more than just a threat. Yuti finally inlvndr-d to kill your husband and to make it look like suicide." Helen Bentliorno's fingers gripped tin- armK of tin- chair as D a w :-: <> n ' s condemning words pounded in her oars. "You told your father whnt you intended to do, but you decided to wait until he arrived to boar out your story. Perhaps you had noticed that Ara hud lost a button oft' her sleeve.
