She's put on a slinky Kind of slncks and a halter. These were dark blue and there wns a blend with her smoky black hair. She wore no makeup, save bright Jipslick. Her eyes were dark and sultry. 1 don't ktiow what there was about Hose that got you. She had done all right. Quilting school when she was 16, she had married a railroad fireman, but he had died on an engine that went into an open switch at 70 miles nn hour. Rose collected insurance and compensation and her next husband had been a real estate man named Hubert LeVeque, who had committed suicide two years later. There wns no talk 1 ! of foul play— Rose had been in Miami at the time. She married Barney^ Bidaull a couple of weeks after the funeral. "I showered and put off those awful clothes. They smelled of the jail," she said. We went to' the portable bar and I mixed drinks with seltzer water which was rboul half flat. : "Well, Mrs, Bidault, I hope you have enough strength to write t'ha check," I said. "Don't call me Mrs. BJdautt ant don't worry about your check,* she eyed me with, lids half closed "I want to tell you something Marshall." "You can call me Jim."

District Attorney Andy "aimer had spent a lot cf time try- ng to link Larry with Rose Bidault, but there hadn't been enough or him to go on. She hesitated. "That's right, isn't t, about them not being able to ry me again, no matter what hap- JCtlS?" "That's right. Even if Andy Tanner should dig up six eye-wit- lesses, he couldn't use them against you now." Rose sighed. "Well, I guess it doesn't make any difference if I ell the truth about Barney's mur 1 der now." I straightened. I hadn't realized he drink had hit her that hard She looked so cool and sober. "Listen, Rose, I don't want to hear about it. The jury's returned a verdict of not guilty, so let's .eave it that way!" "But you don't understand didn't kill Barney." • * * 2HE said it so simply and directly, looking me in the eyes ant using a lone she might have uset lo say that she had just emptied her glass, which she had. "All right, Rose, you didn't fcil him. You say it, and the jury saic it. So let's let it go at that!" "I really didn't do it. I had nothing whatever to do with it— didn't even drop the gun. It wa Larry who told me to say that. 1 was Larry who fixed up the whole story. He even insisted (hat shouldn't give any other story t( Star Williams. That's why 1 neve told Star." She drew her legs up and cud died in the big chair. She hat finally claimed my undivided at tent ion. "It happened like this. Barne. told me he was going to Clevelan on business. He said he was carry a Lot ul ountls anu wauiuu lu Kjrrow my little gun. 1 told him o take it and welcome. Actually, never shot a gun in my life. I ughcd at him in the first place hen he bought it for me." She aughed now. "1 never needed a un to protect myself. 1 wasn't fraid to be alone with all the ser- ants gone, and of course I got rid t them that night. It seemed like swell time lo have Larry over, "Well, it turned out that Barney was wise to us. He borrowed my gun lo kill us both when he caught us. But something went wrong vith his plans. Somebody was vitfi him when he barged in here. Vhoever it wns took the gun away rom him and killed him" She frowned at the incredulity n. my eyes. "That's what happened —doii'l ook at me like that! We were both n there—" she pointed to the sunroom—"when we heard the shot. Larry came out and looked. He vas scared, and so was 1. At first thought Barney had committed suicide. Then Larry convinced me t couldn't have been. I was to tell the police that Barley was going down to the office and was worried about leaving me ilone with no servants around, so he had insisted that I get out my ittle gun and keep it handy. When he handed me the gun I let it slip :o the floor, H went off and killed lim." She bit her lip ruefully. "A fine bill of goods the rat sold you. He knew the suicide story wouldn't hold. He was only looking out for himself." PHE sultry eyes shot me a resentful glance. "That's what's worrying me— I can't believe it was suicide. Somebody trailed Barney into the house and shot him! Whoever it wns ran out of the room, downstairs 1 and got away. Maybe the killer wns waiting out there—• knowing thnt Barney would come —anyway, he knew where to find my gun." It was a great big chunk all of a sudden, and I couldn't swallow it. "You don't believe me," she said. "What do you believe?" "That Barney discovered you and Larry Stone and that either you or Stone shot him." (To Be Continued) Look at tht Record PLAY SAFE! For Cleaner Washes! For Cleaner Washdays!
