WESTBROOK'S MACHINE SHOP vm HPHERE wash'1 much activity on ^- the boardwalk. A tew couples with over-red faces from loo much sunburn, oldsters Irying to ^beat the concession games or eating frozen custard, was all I saw I knew that before I'd gone 100 feet, Earnie Herman would b* notified 1 was there. I supposed he was in my old office in the Plaza Hotel. I went to the hotel, passed through the lobby and into the Show Boat, an imitation boat built on solid land next to the bay. I felt the tension as 1 entered. A few old employees who had be«n with my father for years greeted me a jttle embarr.isseclly as if they thought they were letting me down. I tried to reassure them with my greeting. Ar job's a job. I dropped Into one of the nearer booths and ordered a drink. The season was well along now —the Fourth of July was past, and of course Earnie Berman had reaped the benefit of the holiday business. Even if Gene Sawyer's case did win for me, there wasn't a chance that he coult> put me in possession before the season's end. Herman's lawyers had ousted on the ground that I had forfeited the buildings bj failing to remove them within the deadline allotted by the state conservation chief. I began to wonder about my drink. The waitress finally came back empty-handed. "I can't serve you, sir." I got to my feet. Down the room someone waved. It was Julie Bradford. The man with her turned around, then turned quickly back again, pretending he had not seen m«. He was Julie's father. Once he had hinted crudely that Julie and I would mak« a &ne match. Two uniformed policemen with blackjacks and guns followed me closely until 1 was of! the boardwalk. 1 got under the wheel of my car and drove awaj I had gone less than half a block when a voice said: "Keep on going- Drive around the block and let me out" 1 couldn't identify the voice of the girl who had spoken, and I couldn't see her in the rear-vision mirror. "You don't know me," she said. "I'm Kay O'Neill. 1 work in the Garden line and live with Cleo. She tried to call you all evening and couldn't get an answer She wants to see you at the cottage. It's important" "It must be. How long did you hide in my car?" "I only hid when those cops followed you from the board walk. I knew your car — I'd seen it" was a lie — my car had been^in the garage nearly all summer, and 1 nadn't driven into Queen Point since the new line of girls had opened at the Garden Hut I said: "How do I get to Cleo's cottage?" She told me that it was the "Hideaway" in Pobst Grove. knew the cottage. For years Ihe line girls had used Blra. Pobst's cottages, and any singer working for the season as well as the M.C." also used the Grove. I drove around the block and left Kay O'Neill where I had found her. I reached the Grove, I turned in, then stopped and backed out again. I didn't want my car seen there. I left it down the street, walked into the grove and reached the "Hideaway". It wag dark. I entered the SCTeened-in porch, called Cleo's name softly. There was no an- swer Then I saw someone coming, recognized Him oy uie bandage on sis neck. It wa» Babe TUSSIR, all right, and Earnie Berman was right behind him. Even as they closed in, 1 wished it was trial peroxide olonde Ih t 1 was going to get my bands on. Aft it was, I didn't get ;n> hands on anybody. I didn't see the blackjack coming. But 1 tu'ord it and Knew whnt it was. Al Brst I thought 1 hadn't been nit hard. 1 had some idea about carrying the flghi further. Then it was all over. The sherin said he thought I hnd got oil pretty lucky He said thai if he had been Earnie Herman and someone had stabbed ais girl through the breast with a pair o! scissors, hc'rl ,ike to have killed tfie guy. He thought it ivas really a wonder that Earnie hadn't lulled me. pATlNIE glowered from the other "" side ot the room. It was the living room ol the cottage. It looked as if a couple of college boys had lived there except for the ho^t' i r- -Tid unmentionables hung over chairs, "Where is she. Sheriff?" "You know where she is. She's in that bedroom there where you left her. You almost would have gotten away if Earnie Berman and his friend hadn't happened along!" My head still throbbed. 1 wondered if 1 didn't have a pair of broken ribs. 1 had been out cold till Em Souders had got there with one of his deputies. Em had awakened me with a pitcher of water, and I had heard the news. Cleo Cansino had been stabbed to death, and ot course 1 had done iL T walked over to the bedroom I door. Cleo lay on the bed. Th« scissors were still where I was supposed to have left them, and 1 had no doubt that my fingerprints were on them. Earnie Berman and Babe Tussig would not have overlooked that detail. "I didn't do it, sheriff. Look for a blond show girl named Kay O'Neill. She told me Cleo wanted to see me here. I came and ran into Earnie and his muscle man. That's all I remember till you woke me up." (To Be Continued) •» AND CLOSE BOTH OF MINts- TWAT POGO-POWY THROWS ME/ ' "I've taught kindergarten for nine years, and now they give me the first grade!
