XIX I Brandon eyed me, nibbing his chin. "If you're just a salesman, why are you messing in this?" "Because Ackerman told me to make, sure the switch was made." "Look," Brandon said, "I got nothing against you, but I never saw you before this morning Look at my side of it. How do I know you're acting under Ack- crman's orders? Anyhow, what's all the fuss about? We switched the shipments." "They weren't switched. Who did the re-stenciling?" Brandon sighed. "Louie Gebhart, one of my best men. His main job is labeling shipments and he hardly ever makes a mistake." "He made one this time. Where does he live?" "At the Y.M.C.A. He's a bach elor." "Thanks. Now tell your men to take those drums out of thi truck and put in these." I turned and pointed to the shipmen marked for Alexander Steel. "I can't do that," Brandon sail Quietly. "It wili mean mor overtime for my men. I just can' do it without proper authoriza tiun." "Where's a phone?" "You mean to say you're go .. ing to make a stink about thi - and call the old man?" "Yep." I spotted a phone o a wall and went to it. Brandon, looking a little wor T ried, came up and stood besid 5 me.. 1 lifted the receiver an * asked the operator to get m | the residence of Logan Masters i. In maybe a minute a fema t voice 1 knew answered. I spok ' gruffly, hoping she woulrin ^ calch on. "May I speak to M * Masters, please?" _ * She caught on right away. "M .; Bcnncttl" G t n n y Master * iquealed. "How nice! you no I9M bf Robert Mortm. By Robert Martin don't you? Where shall 1 port for duty?" "Ginny," I said firmly. "This an emergency." "Oh, all right." I waited. Then Masters' thin uiet voice said, "What is it im?" I'm sorry to disturb you, but a itle problem has come up." I inked at Brandon. "Indeed?" "Yes, sir. It's like this." I told im my problem. When I'd finished, Masters said, Then you feel that by switch- ng the shipment it will prove .hat the wheel damage is intend- d for Portage and no other cus- mer?" "Yes—if the wheels prove to e okay. It will narrow it down nd give me something to go on." thought of John Simmons and IB $500 he'd given me, and of he worker, Louis Gebhart, who ccording to Mike Brandon, hac ither disobeyed orders or made mistake when he changed the hipping addresses. "How do you know the shipments weren't switched?" Masers asked. "I marked an X on the original Alexander Steel shipment, t's slill there." "I see. Let me talk to the foreman." I handed the phone to Brandon, "Mr. Masters would like to speak to you." I tiled cot to smirk, Brandon took the phone. "Yes, Mr. Masters." He listened Intent- iy while sweat formed on his 'orehead, Then he sold, "Yes, sir. [ understand." "Well?" I said, as he hung up He gave me a crooked grin 'Mr. Masters said I'm to give you full cooperation." "When is the shipment going to Portage.Foundry?" "Tonight, We're using our owo truck. Mr. Ackerman's orders." "Mr. Ackerman is absent," ] said. "We'll take the load out ID the morning." We?" Brandon cocked I bushy eyebrow. "I'm going with it" • • • I stood by while the switch was made and made certain that each drum bore my X mark. When the transfer was completed I went over to Brandon. "Thanks, Mike. Now I want that truck locked." 'It'll be parked Inside the fence." Is there a lock on itT On the end gate, I mean?" 'No. That truck hasn't been locked since the company bought it." "Can you get a padlock?" "From the supply room, jtt, but—" "Let's go," I said. Brandon turned to nil crew and called. "All right, boys. punch out and go home." He pointed at one of them, a busk; youth wearing a red shirt. "You, too, Norbert. The shipment won't go out tonight. Be here at six in the morning." "But I already told my mother I had to make a run to Toledo tonight," the youth protested. "She ain't even counting on me for supper." "Surprise her." B r a n do n turned to me. "Come on." I followed him to the supply room, which was located near the finishing department He unlocked a door, stepped lnto_ ( big room and took a small cardboard box from a shelf. He made a notation on a clip board and began to open the box. I held out 8 hand. "I'll lock it." He shook his head and handed me the box. "That must b< an mportant shipment to Portage." When we were again at the ending damp, I opened the box :ook out a heavy padlock with two keys attached to the hasp with a string. I hooked the padlock through the rings on the rear d.oor of the truck, locked it, and pocketed both keys. (To Be C*DUnutd) Howls Garden Time!
