Hardly had League President Bill Evans thrown out Atlanta's protest over a game dropped to Knoxville when Birmingham began kicking up a fuss over a 1-0 decision which New Orleans grabbed last night i n the ninth inning. Brimigham's loss, incidenlall, enabled the Nnshvli'o Vol.", who turned back Atlanta :V2, to climb into a first-place tie with the Barons. Birmingham pratoi-ited because New Orleans' pinch-hitter Alex Hooks, batting for Third Baseman Mills with the bases full In the last of the ninth, motioned far time oul and stepped from Ihe batter's box. Baron liurler John Orphal put over :i called third strike, but Umpire Camp reversed the decision at the instigation of Pels' Manager Ray Blades, and allowed the time out.

FLEMING & LOIS EBY COPYRIGHT, 1943. NEA SERVICE. INC. DISCOVERY CHAPTER XXVII J^ARRY threw open the door and swept the small beam of hi flashlight around the dark room Suddenly it rested on the cot in the corner. He saw the slendet form of Allison sleeping there. He short hair was tousled and her face looked startlingly white. He crossed the room quietly and, laying a hand on her shoulder, shook her gently. She sat up abruptly and let out a small cry. "It's all right," Barry said in a low tone. "It's me, Barry." Allison rubbed her eyes like a frightened child trying to pull herself back to realities. "Barry," she said thickly. "But how'd you ever find this place?" "Tony got away from the guards and came to the camp for me, What happened?" "We had just come out of the jungle—it was almost dawn," Allison said breathlessly. "Four men suddenly appeared from nowhere, threw blankets over our heads, tied our hands and brought us here." "It must have been the Quiche chief who is responsible for this, 1 Barry said grimly. Allison suddenly caught hold of Barry's sleeve. "Wait a minute!" she said in a hushed voice. "Where is Tony now?" "Outside tying up the guards. Why?" "Listen!" From the next room came the sound of footsteps as they paced back and forth over the plank flooring, "Do you hear that?" Allison said in a hushed voice. "Yes!" "I've heard it ever since I've been here but I thought it was Tony being held in that next room!" "Then there's someone else being held prisoner here!" Barry said slowly. * * * TJE. stepped to the door that opened into the adjoining room and threw the beam of his light to the keyhole. Then he tried the door. It was locked and the key was gone. "The guards must have the key," he said. Barry swung out the door. In a moment he was back. He turned the key in the rusty lock and iwung the door back slowly, level- ng his automatic into the darkness, Allison stood behind him, breathing rapidly. He flashed on his light and it caught and helc on a tall, slender man with bushy growth of beard coverin his face. His white ducks an shirt were badly soiled. For an instant all was deathly still excep for the wind in the trees outside Then, in sudden recognition, Barrj cried, "Hall, is that you?" Hall's face broke into a wide grin as he stepped forward ant wrung Barry's hand. "I knew sooner or later help would come!" Hall said quickly "But I didn't expect to see you down here!" Allison stood quietly at Barry's elbow. He glanced down at hei and smiled. "This is Jeff Hall, Miss Topping." "The man your company sent down first to line up the mining •ights?" gasped Allison. "That's me," said Hall bitterly. 'I was only in Guatemala 10 days when I landed in this place." "You didn't ever reach the Quiche village?" Barry asked. "I was on my way there when I was ambushed and brought lore." Barry said thoughtfully, "Can he Quiches be behind all this?" "I thought so at first," Hall an iwered soberly. "But since then ve changed my mind. I've had Jlenty of time to think, you know. 1 "Then what is the answer?" "I think there's somebody a lot nore worldly than this primitive ndian tribe behind the whole cheme, Every night as I've lain lere on my cot I've heard the umble of cart wheels going up nd down the slope. I think they're working some of the cinnabar nines and hauling the ore to a lidden smelting place near the oast.". Barry stared at him. "You're idding!" "Neither kidding nor drunk," re- orted Hall. Barry thought rapidly. "If that's rue it isn't the Quiches!" he cried. They don't give a rap for money. 3ut where do you suppose they're elling their quicksilver? Gov- rnment reports show that we ren't getting any from down ere." "The Axis nations need it as adly as we do, you know," Hall uid quietly. "Fishing boats could y it out to larger boats out f sight of land. On this coast it •ould be a cinch." "Of course the Quiches have slays mined some quicksilver," arry suggested. "Yes, I checked that when I first rrived here but it was only 3 ttle and the only use they made f it was to trade it to the coastal j Indians for fishing rights' They liked it as a curiosity, not 'for any commercial purpose. They wouldn't be working all night unless they were being driven to it by some outsider." "That sounds logical," Barry admitted. "Listen!" Hall said suddenly. * * * A BOVE the sound of the wind as it swept through the pines they could hear the distant rumble of heavy cart wheels as they bounced over the rock strewn slopes. "Let's see what we can find," Hall whispered. Barry nodded. Tony led the way on foot while Allison rode behind him on his mule. Barry and Hall each led a pack mule. The night was inky alack and the going was rough. Tony threaded his way, slowly cautiously, and the rest followed. The distant rumble grew slowly more distinct. The sky to the east was awash with gray light when :he procession suddenly stopped Tony cried out, "Here is their path!" It was a winding trail of deep uts that led up from the sea Barry flashed on his light and stooped. He came up with some- hmg in his hand and said ex- ,-itedly. "Hall, you're right, look at this ore that has spilled from the carts. Its red as the flres of hell!" Hall took a bit of it in the palm of his hand and put the light di- •ectly on it. "That's cinnabar, all •ight!" he said. Blackness had begun to melt rom the sky as the little group wound wearily up the trail. A hillock ahead loomed through the murkiness. Tony scrambled up he side of it with the stealth of an nimal. When he reached the top ic called in a hushed, excited •oice, "Just beyond." He was minting with his hand. "It's the nine!" Allison waited while Barry and iall fought their way up the sharp ank. When the scene unfolded efore them they could plainly see dozen or more Indians digging ut the precious ore. Tony was pointing again and aymg excitedly, "They're all Quiches but two!" "The two montadores from the ew chicle grove!" Allison gasped. Barry sucked in his brea'h. His aze hud swept past the monta- ores to the huge figure emerging r om the mine. "AH Quiches but three," he said riraly. For the huge figure was plainly ose. <T» B* Naval Training Station. . .

Mad Russian of Baseball Fame Is Plenty Mad By JUDSON BAILEY Assocated Press Sports Writer The most interested non-participating observer of the goings on in the major leagues these days must be Louis Novikoff fuming on the fronl porch of his hacienda al South Gate, California. The, Mad Russian is a holdout and he's rnacl. More precisely He is angry, not crazy at 'least not to the extent of overlooking the Chicago Cubs scraping bottom in the standings of the National League today. The Cubs introduced last year's ball to Chicago for the first time yesterday and 3,908 fans, the biggest crowd of the day, saw a game in which there were 25 hits for a total of 3fi bases and 14 runs But unfortunately from the Chicago standpoint, 15 of the hits, including a home run by Whitey Kurowski, were made by the St. Louis Cardinals, who won 11-3. The Mad Russian probably rushed madly to answer the telephone everytime it rang last night expecting the operator to say "long distance — Chicago calling." The call seems bound to come soon. Novikoff was one of eight hitters who averaged 3.00 or better in the National League last year. He was reported lo have been paid $5500 and lo have been offered a boosl of $500 Ihis season. He asked for $10,000 and so far General Manager Jim Gallagher has refused lo compromise, insisting the Cubs could get along wilh- out the colorful clouter.
