Phone 6*1 gARNIE BERMAN said nolhirg. Babe Tussig, a hand over the bandage on his neck, was also si- tent. Both looked intensely satis- Sed. "I've already talked to fce blonde girl," Sheriff Km Souders said. "Of course she says she told you to come here. G!ad you admit it One thing more we won't have to prove. Any other confession you'd like to make?" I thought I had better no* say anything more till 1 had- talked to my lawyer. "Can I phone Gene Sawyer?" -Plenty of time for that," said the sheriff. "Plenty of time." He got a pair of handcuffs /rom his belt and slipped one bracelet over my right wrist. He slipped the other over his own left wrist and handed the key to his deputy. •All during the time I had been in custody charged with Charlie Herman's murder, the sheriff had never used the cults. This time I was in for it Everybody believed me a killer. That other time they had excused me. This time they wouldn't. It's not the thing, to stab a pretty girl. "Lei's go," said the sheriff, ai if I had anything to do with it. At the jail hi let me call'Gene. I gave Gene the bad news. I could hea'r him catch his breath over the phone. "I'll be right over." The sheriff let us talk ,In the women's quarters, which happened to be vacant. Ho looked around carefully. I asked: "What's the idea?" "I'm looking for a bug. So far as I know, they have none." "Well, you can stop looking. The I sheriff can listen to anything I l have to say. I didn't kill her" "Then who did?" "Earnie Herman, of course." 1 told him about Cleo's visit and the fight that followed when Earnie and Babe got there. Gene didn't like it. He paced the floor, his tall frame gaunt with its slightly stooped shoulder*. 'So you stabbed Tussig! That makes it bad. It set a precedent for stabbing the girl!" "But why should 1 stab her? She knew 1 was innocen'.. She was the one person who did!" "1 wish you had phoned me after she left I might have been able to do something with her." "My phone service has been cut off. I hadn't slept much for nights. I took a nap and then drove to Queen Point." "Why there of a!! places?" "You had given me hope that I might get the resort back. For the first time I cared to see what the Herman boys had done with it." "Well, you set yourself up for » frame—if it was a frame. Don't lie to your own lawyer,' Jimmer. Did you do it? If you tell me the truth J may have a chance to get you off." I made a wry face. "I told you the truth that other time. You didn't believe me. I'm telling you the truth this time, an- again you don't believe me!» 'But Jimmer—" 'Save it! If you can't see that Earnie Bermau is framing me out of spite, that he killed cleo because she talked tc me. then you can't appreciate the obvious!' • * • QENE drew up his tart frame so that it no longer appeared to have a stoop. "Jimmer. why don't you slop insulting my intelligence? The girl, Cleo talked, all right the way you said she did. But she didn't talk enough, and you blew your top. Don't try to kid your lawyer about what happened To quote Samuel Buller, you're about as subtle as a dove and as innocent as a serpent!" "Quotes! Firsl Maurois, now Butler! it's a wonder you aren't telling me thai I killed that girl because everybody thinking I wa> a killer made me one!" Gene made a wry face. "No, 111 grant thai public opinion can't work that fasL But you're hooked this time. Jimmer. The best I can hope to get for you is a life sentence with a possible parole in ten to twenty years. In the meanwhile I'll get your property back. Vou can sell it and have a nest-egs when you Ret out." • • • J LAUGHED bitterly. Then Gene rapped on Ihe steel door, and » was opened by a'deputy sheriff Gene stalked out. not even savin!- gcodby. , ~ The deputy took me down to the bullpen. Everybody there was waiting. Somehow they had foima out about my trouble. Hal Hover said: "I hear you stabbed a girl. How aboul thnt Jimmer?" I took Hal to l back cell and told him my story. I was "trying it out on the dog." I watched him closely. He wasn't having any. But he said:. "I still wish you luck, snd 1 think a lot of people will. Ii all tics in with Charlk Berman stealing your lease. Am I still wish I was in your shoes. If you could change places with me, you'd be going out of here a minute after midnight That's n-lien my time's up. Outside, you might be able to get • line on • n-r-n that would help you ** I stared at him. For the first time 1 realized that he was about my size. At midnight the bullpen lights were doused. If j wore Hal's clothes a deputy would mistake me for him until I was out in the Jail's office. Hal read mv minrt F. heirl out tiis hand. It's a deal. Jimmer. Tm in !iere so much it won't much matter if they keep me for helping you." l (To Be ConHn Hfl LT€RS •UflLITY SHOC SHOP IZI W. MflIN ST.
