Secretary 'Perkins, in testimony: made public today by the House Appropriations Committee, declared the work is being done by the Division of Labor Statistics,: Which she described as the "key" to the government's plan on such postwar 'matters as "labor standards and the movement of'labor." "This is the agency," she told the committee, "through which the state department is developing its cooperation with other countries 'With regard 'to some of -the labor problems, also with regard to nutrition, and also with regard 'to the cost df living, 'which must be measured internationally in order to have any proper negotiations between -the 'State department and the foreign offices of other coun- tlres." Secretary 'Perkins said the bureau 'had developed a technqiue: "whereby 'they can very nearly predict how much manpower it would take to electrify and 'build powerhouses and do the necessary wiring in some country in'Europe which may have to be reconstructed in .the ^postwar period."

Her nervous fingers were tugging at the knot of the scarf around her shoulders. "I lost it one evening last week—taking a walk after dinner," she said jerkily. I couldn't bear to look at her face. I looked down and that was how I happened to sec the sequin- weighted scarf slipping from her shoulders. She had unconsciously untied it. And then I stared. Sloping across one shoulder and white arm was an ugly purplish-red bruise. Shaw couldn't see it, she was facing him. I must do something before he did. 'But I needn't have worried. He had something urgent on his mind for the moment. His men had been searching the upstairs while he kept us occupied in the living room, and panning for gold dust they had found a nugget. Shaw drew a piece of paper from his pocket. "Perhaps you can explain this, loo, Mrs. Kraik. We found it in the wastebasket in your room." He held out the piece of paper for her to see. Connie shrank back as if he had struck her. He read the note aloud: "I'm hiding in the old play cave. Come this evening. I've got to see you. It's a matter of life and death. Derek." It is marvelous in a split second how many thoughts can crowd into the human mind. I saw Connie wearing slacks and a coat to hide this hurt on her arm; Connie fainting over Derek's body; Connie insisting that I phone for Walter— : that she simply had to have him; Connie wanting a lawyer Connie searching my room (the room I occupied now, the mulberry room that had been hers until some time Wednesday afternoon), searching for a book, she had said, and coming out with tha lost look upon her face. WAS it this note she had been " looking for? This note 'that she had read and laid down some- vhere, and that had only assumed tragic importance after Derek was murdered. And then, perhaps, she couldn't remember in her exclte- nent where she had left it. But t didn't make sense—Connie did aot know Derek. I looked at the girl. She was swaying on her feet. She gave Shaw a despairing look. "I billed him—but I didn't mean to." ?•: Walter jumped forwnrcj,' and pushed Connie back down oh the divan. He wasn't very gentle about t and his face was awful. "Connie, you don't know What you're saying. Keep quiet!" She looked at him pathetically. 'Oh, yes, I know, Walter." Her breath caught. "I can't go on trying to hide it. I've nearly died. I've got to tell this man—" She turned back to Shaw. "I didn't mean to kill him. I only pushed him hard—to keep hint from kissing me. We were standing about half way down the bank of the ravine, so that no one could see us from the house. It was pretty steep there, and wlxen I shoved him we both lost our'bal- ance. I fell against a tree, that's when I hurt my shoulder, and he fell—down in the ravine. I saw him lying there on his back, but I didn't think he was hurt badly. I just turned and ran. That's when I lost my heel. He—he must have crawled back up the side of the ravine—before—he died." Shaw was staring at her. "When did this happen, Mrs. Kraik?" "Wednesday evening—after dinner." "That was the evening of the day you got his note—the day before you found his body?" Connie nodded agreement, * * * 44W/'HAT did Derek Grady wan! - to see you about—what die he mean by that note?" Shaw pursued. "He wanted -money to -get away on. 'He said he was in trouble vith the police." "You took him the money, and .hen'he'tried to make love to you? Is that it?" Walter broke in violently. "This is nonsense. She didn't even know he man." Connie drew away from Walter. 3er voice was shamed. "Yes, I cnew him — but — I didn't know :hat he was the Derek you knew. [ met him a long time ago when came to live with his father, who was a neighbor of ours. I went around with him a lot the summer before I went away to nurse's training school." Something clicked in my mind. I knew now why the address on Wheatland avenue that the newspaper had 'given as Derek's home had been familiar. Of course, that was the same street where Connie had lived before she married Walter. "Did you give him some money?" Shaw persisted. "No," Connie said slowly. "1 didn't have any here at the house. I told him to go away at once or we would call the police—and then—then . . ." Shaw cut short her misery. "No need to go over that again, Mrs. Kraik. Just one more question. Who brought you the note from Derek Grady?" "His grandmother," Connie said. Two spots of red begun to burn in her white cheeks. Shaw's face was pretty grim. Connie watched it like a bird fascinated by a snake. "Do I have to go with you now?" Her voice was a whisper. The deputy shook his head, and his next words brought me out of a bad dream. "No, you don't have to go with me. You didn't kill Derek Grady—if you're telling the truth. Your story explains the -injury on the back of his head, but that wasn't what killed him. Hd was shot."
