Our friend sneaked down to the bridge to pick up the dough, and nothing's there. Something's wrong, he k doesn't know what. Bui there's still a pocketful of phony money ^.burning his leg. At least h« can "realize something on thai. So after .the dance our friend goes back to the office, opens the door and gets ' .the surprise of his life to find Al ^nd Eddie there. Al takes one look (.and realizes t! is his big itch, the blackmailer ana safe-opener. .<J\1 jumps up, either to grab the ^villain or the phone, and the visitor snatches the nearest thing handy, the ax, and swings, first .knocking out Eddie, then ruining •-AL As an afterthought, he picks '"their pockets to make the cr: ne look like robbery."

"Whai about the *ppcn safe?" v " "Oh. yes . . . well, after he slugged them, the guy probably rushed the safe tc switch the rest \ of his phony money and then beat it without taking time to lock it.

And Kitty Lane—she might have been wanting to pile together a little dough (or the future, since Al was beginning to make moves to slough her o If we step out of the official family, we have an interesting character named Loo Ritchie. He happer to Ve in ;r- rears in his board bill." The office door opened. Corporal, Dillon barged in, walked around the desk and pushed a typewritten sheet of paper in front of Healey. He stood up. "I'm taking a ride down to the hospital. Morrison. I'd like you to <x,.ie along." 1 followed him out "M his gray sedan. "What 1 ; it about?" He grinned. "You won't even let me have a little fun, eh?
