"We saw him. Where's Hardin" "In your office. Waiting. He doesn't like it. And another thing. The -boys searching tha hill sent along a couple cartons of junk they'd picked up. Piled in your office. And the ball point pen is in the top box." "Found a pen, did they" • "Yes, Down near the road, I am derstand. • Has initials, on it and everything. G. W. are the initials."

The time of the call Jim knew, meant that Mrs. Hughes had waited, nearly 10 minutes after his and Marks departure before she hcc 1 phoned. If Eddie Stone's death had been news to her, he could 'not imagine her waiting that long to get in touch with her husband. "Tat noise, you heard," Jim said, "was the exploding of » hunch.*', i The 'man Burned back to his duties ''muttering about there being enough nuts on the outsidp without having them come right into headquarters.

Another thought struck him "I can't talk! I'll be killed. You'll have to give me protection; Theyll kill me!' You'll be protected. You can stay right here as long as you want, until we get this settled.' (To Be Continued) XIV Carl Hardin talked. He, too, had received a "Wild Mare" note, sim ilar to Atwood 1 s. He had been instructed to have $400 in small bills ready, waiting for more instructions. He had thrown the note away, paid it no attention until he heard the news of the death of Chief Otto Drover. That made a big difference, the difference between a crank and a killer. He had begun to scurry around in an effort to raise the money. "A minute," Richards demanded. "You didn't have the sum de manded?" "Not in cash,' Hardin admitted 'You know I have large real estate holdings. But you can"t turn thdm into cash at a.moment's no tice. All right.

And I want to say rigjit now I do sympathize deeply and sincerely with Miss DrOyer. But I do not know what she "means by her questions." "Don't you" Richards asked. He looked at Nancy for some explanation. She said, "I guess I was trying to push my luck. I found out some things earlier that you wanted to know. I thought Id ' try again. I didn't get any place." The man tried ;a smile. "Miss amount and the time of delivery Hardins instructions duplicated those received by Peter AtwOod "I tried to tell this creature— this person who was talking to m —that I couldn't get the monej by the time he'd set.

I borrowed a little here and there. Hocked my watch and my ring. By the time for the pay-off I'd raised only $240. I didn't know what to do. I was frantic. I didn't dare wait I delivered the money I had with a note saying I'd bring the rest as soon as possible. I did. You—you saw me leaving North Hill after my second pay-off." . Jim Dunn let out his breath in a soft sigh. At least that explained why a pay-off had been made after the receiver was dead. Everything had been worked out on a tight schedule. • • Dunn had no doubt there' were many others in Colorado City'who: had made the trek to that deserted filling station with varying sums of money.

The Senators a We as other clubs which arc unable to main- ain extensive player assembly ines would like to have an un- estricted draft where all minor eague who are not being brought up by the parent team would be placed on the block at each winter draft meeting As it is nodw a clubs such as the Yankees stands to loe only one player each winter. The "have" clubs, naturally, are fighting any cusch revision with claw and hoof, feeling that it virtually would wipe out their huge minor league investments. Commissioner Ford Frick was at one time reported favorable to some sort of stringent revision asi an antidote for critizcd aspects of the reson clause but it said now to have cooled off.
