He'd blow h's top for sure at a ratty trick like that.. It isn't hard to see Al £rabbini» the first tiring that came to hand and boonintj him. Eddie, very woozy, must have manager! to snatch the ax out of his hands, arf when AJ charged him a"nin. F'Mie swim<3. 'n dssnoration. Eddia's no lion. Ho must have been anoalled when he saw whaf he'd clone. And slnrtin? to collnnse from the blow he'd Rotten. Con- 'cnssion sorndimes doesn't cct you n'l al once. Eddie coulrl have been down on the floor by now, but still conscious enough to do vyhat was rioerted to make it look like robbery. He crawled to Al. emptied his pockets nnd 'tis own. swined the ax handle clean, then starled to crawl to the door to holler for hcln, Put unconsciousness hil him at the door— th= v,.ny I found him." "Then—then if that's the case, the stuff from their pockets had to be hidden here—it must still be here!" , "Hey—you've got an idea! That would prove it. one way or the other— 1P I placed a person-to-person call to Bart Jamison in New York. I waited. . , "Ready with New York." the operator said.A "Hello," I .^id. "this is Eddie Fields." Bart,Jamison's voice was big, expansive, exhilarated. "Glad to hear from you, Fields! Glad to hoar from you!" "Same here," I said, slurring my words, keeping the pilch high. "What's the situation? 1 ' "Situation? Didn" you get my letter?" "Haven't seen any It-tter yet." "What've you got out there-^pony express?" _ ."Well, tell me—what's in it?" © IT JOM* SkoKr ; Diirritnrted I>T NEA Serrin, fcK. Midge was down on her knees now, pretty dress and all and examining the floorboards. "It's got the whole plan- fella," Jamison said. ."And a receipt for the fifteen hundred. When do I get the balance?" "Bajance . . .? Suppose I—suppose we wait a couple'of weeks." "For cripes sake. Fields, what's the matter with you? Didn't I tell you I don't want to make a move till I get the other sixty-five hvmdred? Can't you understand? You've got to do this In one big splash if you want to make any kind of impression. Spending it In dribbles Is pure waste." ATIDGE suddenly squealed. She irj came running from the close! with an old raincoat, leaned over my shoulder and emptied the pockets on the window sill: Two wallets, some keys, a lighter, and a crumpled mass of gr-enbacks— they tumbled all over the window sill. She poked me ecstatically. "What're you planning to do?" J jabbered into the phone. "\V-n. we'll start wit)i .. blowout for you. I have a raft of celebrities lined up to come—have to pay some of them, of course, but the shindig will make most of the columns. Then a week touring t>ie night spots. Then we fly you out to the coast—" Midge suddenly shook me, urgently whispered something. "I'll read the rest in the letter," I said. Somebody was moving behind me—the desk drawer was opening. "Goodby." 1 dropped the receiver, turned—Eddie Fields, holding the office revolver, was backing to the door. He closed It/snapping the lock. "What are you trying to do to me?" he said. The revolver was pointed at me. The silence came down on us huge and heavy,' like a circus tent By Joseph ShoUit collapsing, . ' "Eddie, pal, hxw *re. you?" I babbled. He'hooked a. chair with his foot and dragged it against the door. He looked pale and shaky. He oozed down Into the chair. "You been trying to flit me ever -Ince this got started. Now you think you did it, don't you?" • • • TTHF, hand with the gun was In his lap, the muzzle aimed at my face. The desk was betwee- us. Midge stood beside me. rigid, quivering. "You think I'm a killer," Eddlt said dully. "I'm no killer—you ought to know that, Morrison. He hit me first with that ax. I WM only trying to protect myself." "Why didn't you tell that to th« cops?" "What good would It have done?" He shook his head weakly. "Nobody would believe Al would slug me with an ax ]ust out of meanness. 1 would've had to come out with why he hit me—what I was doing in the office—and then they'd have me with a first-degree case, all wrapped up." "How did you ever let yourself get into such a mess?" He said nothing for a while. Then his eyes slowly narrowed 'glinting. "Watched his hands." He waited for me to take' that in. "Watched him open'II one night —from outside the window. Binoculars. Shade was almost down— he couldn't see me. . . ," Eddie's lips got light. "If Al had only come across with what I asked for," he said bitterly. "I had Ill- Icon hundred from changing Hocky's dough—all I needed wa» sixty-five hundred more to send that guy you were just talking lo. That's all I asked Al for In that note—not a nickel more than I needed. It was small change to him."
