XXXI .TVTIDGE was struggling with the schedules when we hit the 'village. I made a quick circuit of [the trnin stop and the drugstore -that served as the bus stop. We 'found no sign of Dave. I parked, grabbed the timetables and ran ?5irough them. The next thing ['scheduled was a bus du« into rStroudsburg at 2:50, continuing on for New York at 3:05. r I wiggled the car through the 'criss-crossing swarms of souvenir- shoppers, got clear, and streaked Into the broad concrete highway that unrolled down the mountainsides to Stroudsburg. , "I wish I had a gun," I said. j Midge gave a slight snifl. "Why '<lo you need a gun, with all jour rmiscles?" "I want lo give the other guy a gun to make things a little more even." ^ I hoped Healey was hot on my trail. I wanted some law around, some armament. I jammed the accelerator down to its roots and put my elbow on the horn and kept it there. If I'd done that at any other time, a police car would have been on my tail in 20 seconds. This lime, nobody heard me. "I can't figure you ouL I go chasing desperate characters just to indulge you, and you give me a hard time." She didn't answer. I was loo busy shaving the paint off other cars lo look at her. "Maybe there still hasn't been enough excitement for you—maybe you're still bored," I said. "Tell it lo Ihe other girls, wil ^•ou?" she flashed at me. "Your "voice thrills them." ' "Man, they're used lo 11—i doesn't give them a quiver any more." i "Blow the horn again, will you please? I'm much rather hca 'thaL" • * • 1 TV7E were Ihcre In a moment— *• Ihe curbside bus slatton. Tw. buses were waiting there. U was Py JpMph ^hoffit :02, three minutes before depar- ur« time. I parked behind the 1st bus and hopped out, • The pas- cngcrs were scaltered along .the idewalk, smoking or chewing the ast of a quick lunch. Dave wasn'l mong them. I stepped up into tiie second ius. Only three passengers were n there. The scat second from tie last contained m newspaper, tretched wide In the air. The only hing visible behind it was a hat. A man's lell hat, psrfec'.ly hori- onlaL I walked quietly up the aisle, ust past the seal, and slapped he shoulder behind the paper. "Got you!" I said. Dave's shoulder lurned to butter under my hand. The paper rustled wistfully down around his feet I 'elt along his pockets, found no gun. "Get your luggage and let's ;o," I «aid. He reached up on the rack and pulled the square suitcase down and faced me for the first time. If he was surprised to see me instead of a cop, he didn't show it His eyes looked as If they were coated with shellac. I piloted him to the door and out 'past the goggling bystanders VTidge ran ahead of me and openec the door of the station wagon. ] pushed Dave into the fronl sea' and lold Midge lo get behind him I gave her a jack handle. "Crown him if he moves a whisker," T said "I don't need a diagram," she :aid. I pulled away from the curb and headed into Main Street " confess everylhing," Dave munv bled. The Slale Police sub-Elation wa close by. Inside, nt the complain desk, a trooper was typing. Dav seemed to wilt completely at Ih sight of the uniform. "This is the man Scrgean Healey is looking for," I lold th trooper. "His name is Dav Fields." "I confess everything," Dav said to the floor. The trooper hurried several 'hite sheets and carbons into the •pewriter roller. "I wanted to do something for iy brother—to put him on hi* eet so he could help out the fam- y. It's my mother—she's always •orrying about him. 1 did it •noslly for her. ..." "Tell us how you did it," J rompted. , ,\ M I wetil In Kemmer's place to nd something with his name ot\ - I broke the lock on his trunk nd got out some old checks so could copy his signature. Then went lo that room upstairs from rie dance floor and typed out • vill." "When did all this happen?" I aid. • • • '"OETWEEN 3 and 4 a. m. While all those people were around he office." His ga/e still stayed m the floor. "I ftrst found out aboul il when I was woken up by people talking in the hall about •hat happened over in the office. They said Kemmer looked as it he was gone and Eddie was hurt— hey didn't know how serious— and I got the idea all of a sudden :hat If Kemmer didn't leave a will, t would be a nice thing for Eddie ,o get the money. I knew there might be a real will, but there vas no harm in trying, as long as nobody knew I did it But while ! was coming out of Kemmcr's ilace, some man was walking icross the field and I was afraid ie saw me. I kept thinking later ;hal if the police ever found out s was a manufactured will and [hey started looking for who did it, the man would say he saw me Coming out of Kemmer's place. So got thai girl Sally Ann lo say I was with her till 4 o'clock, in case anybody said they thought they saw me, we could say they must have made a mistake in the dark." "Okay, Dave. Now Jet's go back lo the very beginning, so the mar can lake It all down in order Slarl wilh the murder." Dave looked at me with deej surprise.
