"It won't take naucn longer, figured thw girl, you that la. Had driven Doug so crazy that he went to the Four Ace* to try to win the S5000 the wanted. Angel and Duke, seeing he was already naif, loco, got him drunk. Then Angel loaned him money. His own proty- ably—s'x> never had $5000 m tier life—and Duke took the money away from him." "1 suppose that's about the way K was." Charity agreed. "1 was sure a woman WM In the picture because Pascal Bad heard Doug talking; 1 was sure tie was drunk because everyone, who had seen him at the Four Aces said so; I was sure they cheated him because I know Duke.* "But it everyone knows Be wan :heated. they surely cant make Doug pay."

That's why no one watched me. Besides, no one would suspect I'd be such a fool as to slip crooked dice into a game, just to help a .girt I didn't even know." Charity surrendered. "Ye< you did," she said softly. Ha could be Indifferent to I anger, even tue it as a 8tnt to spark au own; he was afraid of her gratitude. did suspect Duke," he i plained hastily. •And caught bin changing the dice.", "Mo, ne's too am an.

The new dice might not have been crooked." "If he had suspected a trick and wanted to be sure ol honest dice he'd have made the change openly. Besides, to be real sure, I did wait till you threw the second pair of aces." He bad finished. Charity con- sidered the situation. "You saved me and I'm grnte- 'ul." she said at last, "but Doug >till owes Angel $5000." "That's right." She tossed the $440 back to him "THAT again." he said wryly. • • • K EN MONTIJO who, without trying usually had his way with women, knew when he was beaten. But he said: "1 don't need 'our money."

"I'll be out in a few minutes. Then you must go to my room. It's at the top of the stairs. Doug's there, asleep on the floor." But Doug was not asleep; he was not on the Boor.
