Fred Callihan 110 So. First St., Biytheville IVE1THER tlie private detective Martin Queripel nor the, law-r yer Harley Kcnyon interrupted Paul Moody's story as they listened in tile dimly lit conference room of the county jail. Now - Paul paused again to recall the words spoken between himself and Azalea Palmer's lather on the day of the murder. "When I saw that he had no feelings about wrecking my chances to get (hat big commission for the National Electric statue, I tried another appeal," the young sculptor continued at last. "1 begged him to consider his daughter's happiness. But that made him hotter yet. He growled, 'She's young. She'll get over this silly, infatuation for you. She'll cry her head off, the way she did when she was a little girl and I took matches and sharp knives away.' from her.' ,; ; • , "lie raged on at 'me, but he plainly loved her in his harsh way. He said: 'In years to come, she'll be' mighty'glad I didn't let her marry you, sir. You are an artist with an artist's morals. You surround yourself with nude models and—why, your highest 'ambition is to put into marble and-bronze a lot of naked women—and men too.; They'd be arrested if they appeared on the stect undressec like that! Why, that very design for\the National Electric Building s full of stark, naked women,' ic roared. ~ • "I tried to explain that they are imblematic BgiiresT He wouldn't hear me out. He shouted: 'What difference does it make whether •ou call a naked hussy Light or lope or Virtue or Science or whatnot?—She's still a naked hussy.' "He made me laugh with his old-fashioned Philistinism, but I couldn't budge him. At last I told lim that he was simply impover- shing Azalea in his spite at me, because'she was going to marry me anyway. At that he simply exploded with rage. He ordered ne out of the house. He grew so jelligei-ent that I had to retreat secause I couldn't resist him. The only thing I could do was to •un away from him." Q UERIPEL interrupted: "But the telephone—did Wendell Palmer go to the telephone to call the police or anybody? And did you fight him for it?" 'Of course not! He nevep touched .the telephone. And neither did I." "But your fingerprints were on the telephone," Queripel insisted. "How did they get there?" "They were never there," Paul shouted. "I never touched the telephone, I tell you. Neither did Palmer while'I was there.'^ Quite icily, Queripel protested: "Don't forget what I warned you. Don't leave your lawyer or your detective in the dark." That grim bronze look came back into Paul's face as he answered: "I'm telling you the'truth'and nothing else. 1 left the house in such a hurry that I forgot even to take my hat. The old man followed me down the hall anc slammed the door after me. 1 stooc on the steps hallway down look- ng for a taxicab. Then I heard he door open, and Mr. Palmer stepped out and shouted: 'Here's •our hat, damn you! 1 And mrled it at me. "It was a flat-brimmed felt hat don't usually wear one; but I had been in the sun so much on ac- :ount of the tennis games ( nat j cept one with m«. "The proof of what I'm telling rou is that the old man gave my iat a kind of skirling throw, and t went way over my head. "I laughed and called back Thanks!' Then I went after my iat. It had lighted on the street and it went rolling so far that a massing limousine almost ran over t. The ear stopped just in time ,6 keep from crushing it. The chauffeur set the brakes so hard that the woman on the back seat was thrown forward with a slam. But she looked out of the window ind I heard her say to the chauffeur, There's Mr. Palmer!'- And she waved to him as she stood on the steps and called, 'Hello, Wendell dear! How are you?' "He waved to her angrily and went back into the house. The cur drove on and I went my way still laughing." * * • pilERE was something so con*• yincing in Paul Moody's version .that Kenyon broke in: "Did you recognize the woman?" His hope died when Paul shook his head. Kenyon tried again: "Did you notice the number of the car?" Paul shook his head. "Would you remember the chauf- fer or the woman if you saw them again?" Paul nodded. "I think so. t didn't see her clearly. But I saw ' her hand waving, and- heard her voice." "-" '• l, Queripel sighed »cpulchrally and asked: "If we could find that woman and she would remember /you, it would prove that you left Wendell Palmer alive. If only she can be found! Yes, and if only those fingerprints of yours had not been found!" • Kenyon had an idea: "Let's put an advertisement in^ the papers asking that woman to come forward and testify."
