Queripel broke It with a confession: "I'm curious to see what kind of a man could inspire such a girl to such devotion." "So am I," said Kenyon with such ardor thai Queripel laughed: ' "Jealous?" j "Maybe I am at that," said Kenyon. "You'd hotter come along with me to the jail." . ; There \vas no difficulty about securing the interview. An officer brought Paul Moody Into the conference room and the young sculptor came in almost as heavily and coldly as If He were one of his own statues moving. lie was grim and bitter aad almost petrified with rage and wonder at his own helplessness and humiliation. Queripel introduced himself and Kenyon Rnd said: ."We came at the rqnest of Mis? Azalea Palmer—or rather at. her command." The mere sound of her name brought Moody's whole frame alive as by a miracle- The words "at her command" mobilized his carven features into a smile so .ender and so lovingly amused that joth of (he visitors understood why a girl might love him and believe in him. There was no hint of craft or self-satisfaction in that smiled "How is she? I could kill myself for adding to what she's suffering "or the father she loved as If he were her child — a bitter, brutal child, but her own." * * * T-TIS look of rigid agony turned into a kind of almost laughter as Queripcl described Azalea's descent upon his office, her demand for his help, and her lofty scorn for mere fingerprints. He told of calling, in Kenyon, and Azalea's prayer that Paul accept their services to save her from despair. He added: ; She told me that If I didn't do as she said, she'd murder me. But she gave no orders' to you — only her prayers." "They're orders to me,", said Paul. "I can't pay you much. And I don't know when I can pay you. Of course, my father and mother want to mortgage their home and engage the most expensive lawyers- But I'd rather go to the gas chamber than rob them of the last Httln security they have skimped and scraped to build up all their long lean lives. "One of. the first things I had planned to do, when I got that big commission for the National Electric statue group, was to give theni some comfort, but Azalea's father for some reason of his own, wrecked that hope. Azalea, though', agreed to live with me on my next- to-nolhing. In fact, I came back to ray studio to telephone her to meet me and get married that very day. But I was arrested and— here I am instead of on my honeymoon." "Tell us just what happened," said 'Queripel. "And remember one thing. As I told your A/alea: *Nevcr lie lo your doctor or your lawyer' needs one amendment: 'Never try to deceive your detective.' Tell us just what otjcuricd as you saw it." * * »' T>AUt, hesitated a moment to collect and arnmge his thoughts. Then he said: "I got the bad news that I had lost my big commission just as I was going into a tennis tournament. Well, I was pretty hot under the collar. I couldn't even finish the set. 1 had to be a bad sporl^ and default. 1 "As a last resort I went to see Azalea's father. 1 wos angry as hell, but couldn't have killed him. no matter what he said or did. What good would it have done me? It wouldn't have won the commission back. It would have robbed me of my—of Azalea—as it has already done. "I took a bus to the nearest corner and walked to the house. The old man was alone. He answered the door riimself." "Did anyone see you go in?" ;aid Queripel, "Yes. I saw a woman looking out of a window. And a boy and a girl roller skating ran slambnng into me., 1 laughed and they watched me go up the steps, then they rolled away. "The old mnn answered the bell and didn't want to let me In; but I pushed him back and insisted on 1 being heard. "He was in an unusually ugly mood and seemed to have something else on his mind. What it was I don't know except 1 remember his saying, 'Everybody U after my money, Ypu and—and— well, that's none of your business. Why don't you go and earn some honest money instead of trying to be s parasite,on other people?' "He'-was-old, and Azalea's lather, and I answered gently: "That's just what I'm trying to do, Mr. Palmer. How would you have felt .when you earned your first hundred thousand if somebody had snatched It away out of spite?' He merely sniffed and snorted at that" ' (To Be Continued) FRECKLES AND HIS FRIENDS B* MERRILL BLOSSEB Sold Outl "Miss Krock, is kindergarten worth while?
