'''' ' Hot Stuff "'" M R. TACKS ADAMS sat under an awning on the terrace of the Penguin Club. He'd been in clover ever since he had extracted Packy North's promise of a date for Saturday night. As Mr. Adams saw it, the fast one that Packy had put over on him in causing the taxicab to drive on while he was depositing the superflous Lily merited little consideration. At the time, the girl had been overwrought. She had also been highly annoyed with Mr. Adams. The appropriation of the cab was just another of those little feminine devices by which annoyed ladies punish the erring male. Probably, upon thinking it over, Miss North had regretted her rash act. Perhaps even now she was simply rarin' to make amends and she would do it by keeping the date. He was certain that a straightforward girl like Packy would never break a promise. He yawned now and looked at his watch. Four-thirty o'clock on this golden Friday afternoon. And tomorrow was the day when he would have his first real opportunity to convince Packy that he was something more than a wen on the countenance of Progress. At this point in his reveries he was startled by a small wailing voice. "Tacks," wailed the voice, a thin miserable voice. Tacks turned around. Jumbo Cutler stood there, looking like a deflated balloon tire. Corporeally speaking, Mr. Cutler appeared to be all of a piece. But upon his face there w,as an expression of mingled horror and consternation "that could have been induced by nothing save the most acute mental anguish. "Good heavens!" said Tacks, surveying him. "What's the matter with you?" "Tacks," said Jumbo pitiably, "you've got to help me. Don't waste time asking questions. Just take my word for things and help me. You will, won't you, Tacks? Think how long we've been friends. Think..." "Cutler," interrupted T a c k s "you've been drinking." A blush dyed Jumbo's ample visage. "Don't remind me of it," he shuddered. "I'll never take another drink as long as I live. I've lost everything, Tacks. Everything." Tacks stared at him. "For the love of Pete, what's gone wrong?" "Listen," said Jumbo hurriedly, "all you've got to know is that for the last couple of weeks I've been reducing. I wanted to get off ten pounds. And I was doing nicely until today. But this noontime, I came a cropper." Tacks folded his arms. "This is not clear to me Cutler." he said. , "Now, please," begged Jumbo, "don't let's have an inquisition. As I said, I was getting along swell until this noon and then I simply couldn't stand it any longer . . ." "Stand what?" "The hunger, you fool. I've been at death's door for over a week. Today I reached the end of my rope. So I went into a bar..." "And ran amuck there?" "I did not," said Jumbo, with dignity. "I was the victim of circumstance. Practically insane with hunger, I was so unfortunate as to take a few drinks on'an empty stomach. I thought they would sort of hold me down." "Stupid logic, of course. What next?" Jumbo sighed. "Don't ask! In a kind of dumb way I realized what I was dmng all the time. But while the drinks were working it didn't seem so bad. And then, all of a sudden, they stopped working and I came to in a restaurant eating a piece of pie about the size of this terrace." He covered his eyes and a strangled sound escaped him. 'Then I remembered everything. I'd calcn a sort of planked stcnk thing thai must have been cut off a sea-linn. And I'd had about a Ion of mashed pnJ^tncs and mu,~h- rooms all mixed up together.

But you'll have to do better. Cutler. If you've got to get that weight off immediately, there's only ona way to do it. That's in the sweatbox down in the Turkish bath. Come on!" i , , , "Wail!". ordered Jumbo. "You mean that coffin thing downstairs with all the mirrors and electric light bulbs in it?" "That's right." Jumbo looked doubtful. "I'm scared of that thing." "It's your only hope. Come along." He turned and started for tht elevator. Jumbo followed, protesting weakly. "I'm not so sure about this," said Jumbo. "Isn't there anything else I could do? Take a pill or something?" "Not a thing," said Tacks inexorably. "Look alive. Cutler. I haven't got all night." The spectacle of anyone sojourning in a "sweat" or "baking" box is always extremely exhilarating to the risibilities. Tacks Adams, gazing at the strained and rubicund visage of Jumbo protruding through the hole in the top of the box, treated himself to the first real laugh he had enjoyed m weeks. "My gosh," he said, wiping his eyes. "You look silly in that thing." "Listen, Adams," said Jumbo. "Hurry up and get this over with. It's hot in here." Tacks turned on more current. "Don't rush me!" he said. "We haven't begun to heat up that box yet." "You take it easy," Jumbo warned. Inside the box his body was beginning to feel the power of the electric bulbs. It dripped perspiration. "How you doing, boy?" inquired Tacks conversationally. Jumbo puffed. "Has this got to go on long?" "Well, the longer you're in there the more weight you'll lose." "I -- I'm suffocating," gasped Jumbo. "Nonsense. Don't give way like this." "I--it's all r-right for you to t-talk," panted Jumbo. "Y-you'r« out there c-cool as a cuc-cucum'- ber." "Now see here, Cutler," said Tacks, "I wish you'd just sit there, lose weight and stop kibitzing. I can't work when I'm badgered like this." "B-but I'm s-s-smothering." Interruption T HAT part of Jumbo's anatomy which held forth from the neck down felt as if it had been assigned to a room in the sub-cellar of Hades. His eyes goggled. His tongue hung out. Tacks was enjoying himself hugely. He allowed more voltage to flow into the sweat-box, sat down and lighted a cigarette. Jumbo emitted a choking sound. "L-1-lemme out of this. I-I've had enough'." "Don't be a sissy," said Tacks. "I'm out to do a job on you, Cutler." "I-I-I . . ." began Jumbo, babbling. He was interrupted by a voice b a w l i n g Tacks' name. Tacks stepped to the door. "Yes," he shouted. The owner of the voice approached. It turned out to be a boy in buttons. He handed Tacks a letter. "L-1-listen," spluttered Jumbo. "I--I w-want out of t-tnis." Tacks hardly heard him. He was staring at the letter, addressed to hisrf in a firm feminine hand. Then his heart, a normally-placid organ, set a new record for the run from his rib region to the back of his throat and he tore off the envelope The note was brief. It read: Mr. Adams: I do not consider a promise OH'cn under d;ir?s$ as binding.
