It is a symboL It was a minor Jeity ol Cambodia. Within the temples are sculptures showing now it was venerated. An idol, you understand. During the lime ot the Frencn conquest, .the idol disappeared. This much of information has been known for many years. Researchers have tried to discover Ihe secret ol the location. Many have died." • • Tfeah." said Alan. "The old Ouricd idol story. The golden loot studded with emeralds in its crest.* The hands fluttered negation. 'No. no! Do not misunderstand. :ny friend. Whether it may be of Sold or of glut, encased solid in jmeralds, does not Interest me It is a symbol! Its legend is the universal one—it will reappear in the nands of a Messiah, a Jeanne d'Arc. a Boh Gyi, to lead on to liberty!" •And you," said Alan, hi* grin ym'c»l, "want the emerald hat" Benoit pushed himself from his tair and stood with a dignity that • Imost shed a mantle over his iabby physique, "I excuse your insinuation. I wish thir symbol oecause ; am a Frenchman; I still hope that my country may restore >rder and re-establish here a leaceful and a prosperous colony." Alan, curiously impressed, could io! shake off his practical outlook. 'As a smart businessman you I gamble your money to come and look for it. even if it may b« \vorthless?"- Benoit caught Alan by the arras, trying to shake Ilira. "Even it It were a thing of painted clay I must have it. Because. Monsieur, there are a quarter ot a million people, malcontent agents, who are waiting for it. All the way from Ho-Chi-Mln down to this gross half-caste Peter Vroom. they are searching for it to hoist it as their holy grnil and to scream the rabbles to their riot for the so smooth propaganda of 'the liberation of the people's democracy.' They infiltrate the whole country, mouthing all the so smooth red slogans to rouse the mob only to the redness of blood." • • • AN BAHTON stared at him. As he had tingled hotly her ore wau».ig for the secret, now that he had it, his blood chilled away in little prickles. "So that's what they were all afterl The deadly bird! The Commies!" "And for that, Monsieur, they have no compunction whom they kill or under what torture. You perceive, then, that I must and this thing first and destroy it before its evil potence may destroy the befooled people." . "Golly!" said Alan. -And I've been holding back on you for this couple of cays. Why didn't you tell me before?" "Because.^Monsieur," Ben oil said fiercely, "you Americans do not understand the deadlines* You would talk carelessly of it— as you talked to that girl. Had I but known that your information Is distributed over a whols jungle—" ; Alan pushed him down Into hi; chair. He drew his own close, H< was now the conspirator. "Okay We'll deal it clean now. I'm on your side of course. So look. I've been studying and thinking about that scribbled diary. Would it mean anything II that word (or the Jungles, u-a-t, ioutd have been v-a-t?" Benoit blinked at Alan, his llp» forming letter sounds. "Vat — • temple." Bcnoit sprang up and embraced Alan and kissed him on bolh cheeks. "But then it is here! The Val Pi-nh Keo! The Silver Pagoda of the Emerald Buddha! The thing is hidden somewhere within! It 14 lot In the miles ot Jungle!" Alan's practical sense took over. 'Suppose we go and cose the joint—I mean, take a quiet look- see." The pagoda was easy enough to inspect: for «very appurtenance was geared as though the old builders had forecast It as a tourist attraction. It stood n a wallea court guarded by beloos, fierce golden dragons, and by cheydeys. shrines of sacred bones and by <heki - uniformed guards whose fui.clion was to search outgoing tourists. Entry immediately showed the need of this precaution. The whole floor was laid with plates ot silver that pin-point reflected the lights ot thousands of candles. Blink away the dazzle, one could see the fabulous Altar-of-thc-Five-Tiers. HE fifth tier, evidencing a not too fond respect for modern tourists, was a tall case of shatterproof plate glass.. Within it i statue of the Buddha in the attitude of The Giving. A tourist folder handed out bj tn attendant said it was ot pure gold and ii weighed 75 kilos and the stones In its oyes and forehead and palms were diamonds. Monks in yellow robes stood in carven shadows In attitudes of reverence. Mendicant in rags kneeled with foreheads upon the floor In attitudes of despair. Attendants in unwashed uniforms watched Alan and Benoit in attitudes ot suspicion. Alan appraised the scene. "Exactly the ,-lace, I'd say. for hiding a sacred symbol with an emerald crest Everybody watching everybody. But how to and it?" Benoit drew him by the sleeve to a teak bench in the court. "It is permitted to sit here. We must plan."
