His features were pale and composed. A faintly discolored i swelling on his forehead reminded I mourners the great .statesman, one | of the few non-Communists in the t government, had plunged 10 his ' death.

XVIII TT was desperate!* important that she find that can of w»jc. It had no', moved by itself. Som«one had taken it from her closet and put it somewhere else. She had to fin., it. She had never felt so much like an interloper in her own home. The house was still and sunny, /he brce?.e entered jauntily through the open windows, everything v/as just as usual yet Ann felt stealthy and furtive as she made her way from one room to the next. She svent to Rinda's room first- She did that because she (elt so certain that the wax would not be there. Rinda was out of it, Hindii was in the clear: yet she :iad to look there, the murderer Tnghl hnve decided that was the perfect place to have hidden it. Rinda s room was neat and orderly. Except for her large wardrobe ease on the Luggage raek and a few of her dresses hanging in the closet, dresses she had decided she wouldn't need in Cleveland, there was no evidence that the room was not just a guest room. Ann found no can ol wax anywhere in the room. Some driving force made her go to Rush's room next. The room across Ihe hall where he hud spent th« night before. There was surely no explicable reason why Ann should feel like an Intruder in this room, no reason why her hands should be moist and her face flushed »s she searched through the closet, Ihe bureau drawers. She found nothing. Nothing at 11. Vet as she went out into the h.ill she didn't feel the relief she had thought she would. It was the dreadfulncss, she decided, of suspecting, tl >en to; • moment, that flush could be at the bottom of all these awful things. • • • T WONDER why I'm doing It, she thought drearily, letting herself into Laurie's sunny bedroom. Even if I find it here I'll be able to convince myself that someone else put It here, that it isn't Laurie at all. . . . And then she realized, standing in the middle of the lovely bedroom, the reason for the urgency of her mission, the driving force behind her search. She was trying desperately to convince herself that the can of wax did exist, that it had been in her closet the afternoon before, that she had held It in her hands. But she found nothing in Laurie's room to substantiate her belief. She was shaking as she went out into the upstairs hall. There were two bedrooms left— Gay'i ind Tommy's. By this time she had no hope left that she would find the wax in either room. It could have left the hovse in the trash—it coujd have ieft the house in the bright blue convertible that took Rinda to the station. Nevertheless she went down the hall, let herself into Tommy's bedroom. Tommy wn not a tidy jwrsoa. That much was ivldcnt to her ai soon as she was Insids the room. Susan usually did Tommy's room first but today Tommy had been bark Into the room since the maid had been there. He had changed his clothes; hli slacks and »hlrt were tossed over a chair, one sock trailed sadly on the floor, an ash tray was brimful to overflowing, CHE didn't touch anything al° though her instinct was to pick up the clothes, empty th« ash tray. Instead she went methodically through Tommy's closet, looked in the bathroom, through tha half- filled dresser drawer*. She came very close not to looking in the desk at all. Later, »h* couldn't have explained why »he did so over and move some ol tha books aside, glance down to b« sure nothing was hidden behind or underneath the small kneehole desk. And, as she straightened up from her task, her eyes caught the memorandum that was pushed half underneath the blotter. Mr. F.nos Barton—1] a.m. Tuesday. S!K- stood there for a long moment, before the words registered on her brain, before their meaninf penetrated. ENOS! Kleven a.m. Tuesday. What Tuesday? Why? Had Enos sent for Tommy? Why. tn heaven's name' For what conceivable reason? How did Eno« so much as know of Tommy's existence? She shook her head, back and forth, slowly. If any appointment had been made, Tommy had made It, But why? • ' Why? Why would Tommy w»nt to talk with EnosJ There was only one -eason for that. Relief., sweet nnd enervating, washed over her. She wanted to cry, wanted to let the tear« she bad been holding back, slide down her cheeks. But she didn't. In a Uttle whll* now there would be lime enough for tears. But not new. Right now there was something she had to do. (To Be Con tinned) For Service On TYPEWRITERS ADDING MACHINES Call 2513 JAMES STANDRIDGE Norris Printing Co.
