"I'll tell you what I can, but you two have to b« frank right back at me. In answer to your question: only incidentally. There's some tie-up there with Sagmon Robottom and— K "What's he done?" cried Sin. "Nothing yet—that we can prove. He Just keeps popping up in key positions. A professional organization one place—a crackpot discussion group somewhere else. The L. A. office—that's Robottom's home town — thinks there's something of!-key about him." K Off-key? H "Subversive. Undercover." "Gosh," said Sin, awed. "If I'< known that, I'd have really been scared this morning." Trim pursed his lips irritably a the interruption. "Nothing ha* come of my work when 1 ra across this lost treasure business Okay—that's not by jurisdiction— finders-keepers and so forth. Th two murders aren't my jurisdic tiori^ either. Just a minute!" I! held' up a small hand to cut o the Conovers' questions. "I come into it sideways. If Barse lou finds the Queen, the money his. But the government is intej ested if he's going to back Robo torn in some subversi ve acli vi I with that money." John Henry began to pace bat and forth, plucking thoughtful: at his lower lip. "Then Robotto could be Jones?" "Oh, he could be," admitle Trim.

He started to slide ider the steering wheel. "I'm rry I won't be able to run you jck, but from what you've told e, I better get a move on.** Sin looked at the agent quiv.zt- illy. "What are you going to do ow. Mr. Trim? Or is it a secret?" •W/"ELL— H Trim squinted at the v moon-painted mcsquitc. "I'm oing out and wait for ttarselou t his ranch. Now that you've run his galleon rumor lo earth for ne, I might as well warn him bout registry and tax and some ther details. Then it'll be his love if he wants U> play will obottom." 'Mr. Trim," said Sin earnestly look—wouldn't you like to fol ow Barselou and Jones and Ro oltom or whoever it is to th Queen? That way you could—" "What are you talking aboui Sin?" John Henry interrupted. " nought you—" "It has its points," Trim musec 'I might find out pretty definite! about the subversion angle. ; would certainly catch Robotto/ oft base." He laughed harshlj 'But, unfortunately, Mrs. Conove —I don't know the way. All"I ca do is wait at the ranch for one o both of them to come back." "Thai's it exactly/' said .... jumping up and down with excite ment. "Sin, talk sense," John Hem insisted angrily. "Johnny, don't you sec? M know where lo start— Walkii Skull." "What do you mean we kno where to start? Where's Walkii Skull?" "Never mind," said Trim quietl I know where it is. Lei her talk "And we've got a third the combination — me."

R ash one, L dash three." Her ords tumbled over one another citing out of her mouth, "I know can remember it, Johnny. It ust isn't a silly old quotation or nylhing—it doesn't have any or- cr and I can remember It per- eclly. I knew/H when 1 recited for you back al the ranch, but didn't want to tell you then for ear it would spoil things or you'd ant to go after the Queen by ourself later on. But now we've ot help. And, Johnny, honest—1 an't get the darn thing out of my iend!" "ll'd be too dangerous for you, >in. 1 don't want you—" She put her arms around him. 'I don't want to go to jail and I lon't want you to, cither. This way we won't have to, honey. Because Jones will be at the Queen." John Henry felt the tempting excitement begin to bubble inside lim again. "I wouldn't mind run- ling into the guy responsible for all this, at IhaL I feel I owe him something." Triumphantly, Sin turned to the wizened agent in the sedan. "There! Now how about it, Mr. Trim? What do you say?" Trim didn't suy anything for a moment. lie opened the glove compartment and took out a heavy service automatic. Leaning back in the cur, he checked the magazine under the dashUght. When he c^iine inlo view again, he shoved the gun at John Henry, bull foremost. He said, "Stick close lo your wife then, and come along. This may be the bag of the year or it may be a wild-goose chase. I guarantee il won't be any picnic." (To Be Continued) SCOT!
