XXXVI FIELD'S face twisted - 1 - 7 queenly as he talked. His free hand went down against his right I* side, the lower ribs, as i( he had a stitch in his side. 1 sneaked oft rny chair. "Let's—-maybe we can get you out of this trouble," I said hoarsely. The guy had told us too much. , Was he going to let Midge and me walk out of here? Eddie didn't seem to hear me. "Everything would've been all right, even at that," he said dully, his gaze wandering over the lloor. "But Kitty got me. Caught me in that dumb lie about the car. She hart me one hip in the hot seat. All right, J said, I'd tell the cops her story about Al's last words. an,i she said she'd slip me the sixty-five hundred 1 need. I did my part, just like; I promised. Then I come back here and Eddie's ( gaze drilled back up to me. "I look her for a walk the woods and asked her to pay off. It's all a bust, she says—she fan't gel a dime. I grab her by the Ihroat. Ask Morrison, she yells. Then she can't yell no more." I gol my feet set to dive al him over the desk. 'No, she ain't dead," Eddie said "She'll soon be around, raising a holler." Midge was partly in the way—] nudged her aside with my knee— Ho dangled Ihe revolver down ^to the floor and let it drop. "I'm r,'okeding to death. Morrison. I've been lislcning to the drip in tliere for the last half hour." He reached inside liis shirt, around to the right stele, nnd pulled out a waddet handkerchief. It had a bright red spol, not large. "All the bleeding's itifide. Slie had a stiletto. Sh pulled it out of her red garter. 1 His head drooped again. Ill closed his fist and slowly pushed it against his side, up under the ibs. He slarled to stand up—got lalfway—abruptly sat down again, . look a vast surprise blistering lis face. He struggled up again. His body made a ridiculous twist —he Jell flat on his side. A LL the people said it was belter it happened that way, belter hat Eddie died casually, quickly, rather lhan facing the horror of he chair. Isn't it amazing how crime always seems to bring ^ts own appropriate punishment, they said—generalizing from that one instance and ignoring the cases !hal didn't tit their theory. They didn't talk, for example, about the case of Torchy Covalla. I'm willing to swear that Torchy ulled Rocky Silone; and Harry Svans, the man t put in the hospital, said the same thing. He lold the police it was common knowledge among the guests at Torchy's rest home thai their host had done Rocky in. But you can'l convict anybody on that. The 'murder weapon was never found. Torchy just sat tight and kept denying everything, and he never stood trial for murder. They did convict him of manhandling Midge— the charges were assault and bal- Icry and false imprisonment. The judge gave him the maximum— S1000 fine and two years In the slale pen. besides that, of course there was the closing down of Torchy's little business. Kitty Lane? Nothing happened to her. She readily admitted tha she'd stabbed Eddie, but il was self-defense; he'd been choking her—there were finger marks 01 her neck and hemorrhages in. tin larynx lo prove it. For a whili sbe lost her voice, which, in a singer, seemed appropriale retri bution indeed. And when he voice came back, it was changct —deeper, .duskier, with a grating undertone. It made her., She wa Joseoh Shallit sultry singer now, exotic—she ave shivers to male audiences, usltce? The court went easy on Dave Fields. He was convicted of wo crimes, altempl to procure oney by fraud, nml forgery, lie ould have been put away for a :ood long piece, but instead they iut him on probation for two ears. Dave's main defense was hat he wasn't trying lo gel the lough for himself—he did it all o make Eddie financially stable o he would stop being a worry o his mother. ' • • • ' yo\V, Roslyn. Technically, she was guilty of conspiracy to procure money by fraud, because ihe'd advised Dave on what to put n the will; however, the D. A. didn't bother to prosecute her— popr, sad widow. But Roslyn was responsible for her own troubles and everyone else's. Would there lave been any trouble al all if ioslyn hadn't hounded Eddie till tcnmcd up with a counterfeiter? The discovery of Becky's body on our grounds was what started Al S.emmer fussing around until he finally wound up slugging Eddie and gelling his skull crushed in return. And all lhat led lo Midge going out and getting manhandled, caused me lo get socked and conked, and a poor, innocent hood io get a bullet in Ihe chest! caused Dave Fields to take up forgery, caused Eddie to gel himself stabbed to death. All because of that miserable, dissatisfied litllc wilch. Midge Burnett. Oh, you lovely little darling, Midge Burnett. You're wondering perhaps why I haven't come to see you, haven't come a-calling at your co?.y 29- rpom show place in Mcrion, on the gilt-edged Main Line. Please know the sad truth, Midge: I'm busy looking for a job. These summertime romances. , . . TilE END Felevision- fonitc, Tomorrow VMCT. Memphis*.
