Main Phone 685S VII 1* the temple courtyard a monk was scattering sesame seed to a flock of birds the size of thrushes, that walked about tamely as pigeons. At intervals the birds raised golden crests and said mu- -ically, "Hoo-poo." on a descending lird of the scale. "Not emerald crested," Alan ^runled. "Just plain. And since nobody's dropping dead, i suppose it's their lucky time to hoop." "As an American, my friend." Georges Benoit said, "you have certain recognized characteristics. Vou are expected to have a curiosity, to intrude your nose into anything that may interest you, because you write for your village newspaper; or you are studying the conditions .for two weeks for the ourpose of writing a book." Alan grinned. "Moreover," Benoit went on, "you are expected to have a camera with a flashlight, the which you thrust into dark corners and religions ceremonies, while you cnll on priests and gods to pose 'or you." Alan didn't grin. He winced. "These privileges you have established, give you then the opportunity to observe every inch within this temple, without attracting attention to any one spot." Alan had an idea of his own. "And since they—" he emphasized the word "- expect us to be going i»to the jungles, we'd better recruit some husky trail and track men." "A bodyguard, no less! Mi- friend, this is inspiration!" Benoit clapped his hands. The feeding hoopoes shrieked and scattered like park pigeons frightened b> some untended child. The monk 'J'HE ricksha coolies of Pnom Penh were on strike Somebody nad taught them Ihe technique of now to demand 20 cents for then labor, rather than 17 Alan and Benoit accordingly walked two sweating miles along the Quai Sisowath to the section of the European stores Benoit planned "This temple Al night the gales are locked. Only Ihe devout monks are permitted to remain within at their prayers. My servant, as are many Buddhists, was educated in a monastery He can make application for a nine days' praying. Much may be discovered in the long night watches." Gratefully threading the shaded paths of the Circle of the Leper King, Alan said. "We're being followed. Shall we nm?" •Run?" Benoit gasped at the very thought at it. "We wait by the statue and project the bold front." Heavy boots crunched accompanied by a patter of naked feet. Around a bend of the converging paths came the man Vroom followed by four natives rather ostentatiously dressed in expensive sampots. Vroom dismissed the men and came up soberly smiling. "Aha. gentlemenl So you take the cool air of the river frontage." He stood to enjoy their sweating discomtorL "Of a miserable necessity," Benoit said wilh an equally necessary candor. "We have been sightseeing and \ve go now to the Magazine Denis Freres to purchase an equipment of photographs." Vioom's'heavily sleepy eyelids closed in understanding. "Of course. For the life histories of the jungle animals, doubtless. Myself, too, am an amateur of nho- tography^ I do myself the pleasure did seem to Know what a man should have Sleepily he asked -You do not take a long focus tens for animal work?" Alan, engrossed in flash apparatus and cJose focussing range finders felt guilty for the oversight Benoit quickly reached into a case "II is here." He showed the accessory. Vroom smiled sleepily at him "But. too large. I thcenk. for the camera Hint Mccster Barton ha; selected " Then he laughed. "Bui you ana me. my good friend, na- ha. we must not inlerfere with the derisions of the expert who has the knowledge." He turned back to Alan. "In the Dodong 1 nave a leetle camp workings of the teak 1 ocnvite you to visit. There 1 guarantee you elephants, tigers, any- thceng you weesh and 1 .hank you to lake them away- The elephant? they break my fences and the tigers they eat my men." Alan flashed a quick narrow look to Benoit. wondering jusl what this might mean. Vroom laughed purringly. "Oah yess. My- good friend Benoit also I know is anxious to aid you in your researches and. having his knowledge of the country, he would be useful. Only—" he let his eyes rove over the obvious unfltness. "1 am sure he will not be able." He expressed a further onxiety. "Do I not detect that you are coming down wilh a fever —or something? You have a tension of the hands, a yellowness You must take care of yourself." Hp^ bowed his ponderous adieus. "That man." the store attendant scowled after him. "has a camp, believe it of' me. that Is full of Ihese bandits who raid the coun- tryslde. Ai-Quoctes. Messieurs, more evil than the tigers. 1 do not advise that one goes."
