The police had never been able to find the murderer, but they don't find every murderer anyway. Galli - Galli and his cards was a trick, in a night club where I was none too sober ;md probably easy to fool. Most mind reading of thc sort I'd accused Selena of on the Montauk road was a matter of close observation of thc small gestures and expressions of the other person, and Selena was a highly intelligent woman. She had pulled on thc brake because some scrap of sound or a flash of sun reflected from the approaching car had warned her. And as for the Jire at Cloud Mesa, she had sim-1 a match. There was no ! part .of my story which did not (have a rational explanation. ! ''All those things," Dr. Lister I said quietly, "are out of the cr- dinary. But I don't see any mystery in them. I can think of an explanation for every single one. Except LeNormand's death, of i course." "And Jerry's,' I said brutally. "Yes,' he replied in a low voice. "That is the hardest of all for me to accept.' "There are some common factors," I said. "There's no explanation in either death. The presence of Selena, Jerry and me in the vicinity both times. A;id Lej Normarid's questions were part of ' the setting." "Anything else" "And there was a ifire, both times. lie nodded. "Jerry had 1 nothing to do with the fires. And I didn't. That leaves Selena. Selena and the equations." The pieces were slowly fitting themselves together in my mind, but nothing was wholly clear yet, and the picture which was forming was not translatable into ordinary words. "The only other thing I'm sure of," I said lamely, "is that when Jerry realized Selena had managed to light the fire, he thought at once' of something else." "And that means, or suggests, that if you are right the answer | must lie in her." Th«re was no shadow of doubt in my mind on that ponit. "It's got to. I f we knew who she is and where she came from—" "Luella Jamison" "What do you think He shook his head. "I dont see how she could be.

'Selena is the most intelligent and the most beautiful woman I've I ever met.' He paused again, and 'went on in an altered voice. "I ' was not entirely happy about Jerry's marrying her. She seemed hard to me, not .merely on the surface but all the way through. I kept watching her, hoping to see her tender or openly in love with Jerry, and I never did. She was cold and reasonable; impcrmonal is perhaps thc word, and I never knew whether, she was different to Jerry. I worried about it. I didn't believe, till tonight, that she and' another side at all.'' I was puzzled. What, I wondered, had I told him lo make him revise his estimate of Selena "You told me that the first evening you were out there, she was reading one of Jerry's old books. ! Doyo u remember saying that ' One of his old books, of fairy stories." "I was trying to remember what story she was reading," I told him finally, to explain my silence. i "I only looked at thc few words 11 told you about—' I " 'The Little Mermaid' " he said, "the saddest and the best of all Andersons stories. You must have read it. Don't you remember the little mermaid prin- I cess who lived at the bottom of ' the sea One day she came up to 1 the top of the water and saw a snip with a prince in it.

"The witch transformed her fish's tail into legs and feet, but whenever she walked she felt as if she were treading on sharp knives. She gave her tongue to the witch, so she could not speak. And she agreed that U' she didn't win the prince's love, she had to die without an immortal, human soul." He looked away. "Jerry always used to cry about mat part of it." Th e rest of the story was flashing through rny mind. How the little mermaid, after devoting herself to the prince, found that he was going to marry someone else, and how, on his wedding night, she slipped over the rail of the ship on which the wedding party .was sailing, and dissolved into the sea foam. Perhaps. But in the instant when the memory of the story completed itself in my rnind, another explanation for Selenas reaction to it occurred to. me. She might have cried because 'the story was moving and beautiful— . or because it was true. „., It was a fantastic, horrible no- * ! lion, and I wanted Immediately I to stop thinking of it. I remem- ! bored Jerry's face as he looked at Selena there on the settle -before the fire she had someho w managed to light.

McClellon and Stassenfa Talk It Over WASHINGTON (iP) — Sen. Me- Clellan (O-Ark) and Harold E. Stassen meet today to talk over Differences between the Senate In- I vestigations subcommittee and the Foreign O perations Administration. The conference in McClellan's office was requested by Stassen, the FOA director. Subcommittee members accused him last week of obstructing their efforts to dig out the facts about a proposed contract lor grain storage elevators in Pakistan. Stassen denied it and volunteered lo appear before the subcommittee. But McClellan, as the subcommittee chairman, issued a subpoena directing the foreign aid chief to produce all records bearing on the project at a public hearing scheduled for Wednesday. Stassen had said earlier that he had made "the pertinent records" available to the subcommiltee weeks ago.
