He watched while Queripel put alongside them the eight prints of Pau Moody's labeled "telephone base/ Still saying nothing, Queripe covered a large table with the different prints taken in. Moody's studio. As he peered at them, and studied lliern with a microscope, he seemed to be shaking with excitement. Finally i Queripel said, more to himself than aloud: "Thank God!" "For what?" "For giving us fingerprints 'all unlike." 'Stivers laughed. "Your friend Moody may not be so grateful. ! xxvi "PROMPTLY at 3 o'clock Martin Queripel climbed the old stairs of the Crime Laboratory^ He found Detective Stivers awaiting him in i state of excitement as manifest as Queripcl's own inner turmoil was concealed. Stivers thrust at him the big-blown-up pictures of a thumb print. .', Queripel lifted his eye- again for that! Now look at his print of Moody's hand. It's aken from the bronze cast. Con- rast it with my fingerprints taken 'rom Ihc felt en the base of the .elephone. S«e how the fine mated hairs of the fell, and the soft fuzz affect my finger tips." There was no questioning the marked difference in the textures of the prints. Queripel went on: Now here are the fingerprints of Moody labeled 'telephone base.' Can't you see the hard metal of a bronze surface showing through? Isn't it exactly the same us those prints of Moody's labeled 'from the bronze cast'?" "My God!" Slivers sighed as his whole world reeled. : Queripel shook Stivers' world still further. "Here are my finger tips on a felt base. See what force I put on them, because T had to grip it hard lo hold It. That shows in the prints, doesn't it? Now where is there the least similarity with the prints of Moody marked 'telephone base.' His prints show no pressure, no soft fuzzy felt, but only the light pressure of one who "They kept harping tfll we got a television set, and now what?

First S^, Blytheville brows in query, Stivers boiled: ; 1 "That's Kelso's thumb! I warned the big stiff lo keep away from that telephone, but I must have been a minute too late. 1 . I "Perhaps you were an hour or two too'late," said-Querij»eU "What do you mean, an hour or two too late? I was at the scene of. the murder within hall an hour after the call. Kelso had arrived only a little before .me.. V^.hat are •you getting at?" .'; • ; "- [ i Stivers was worried, but Queripel said: I "Can't you take "Oh, but he will. And so will that wonderful girl, Azalea." "She is nice, isn't she?" said Stivers.' "I took her prints, you now. But why. should she, be rateful? .1 thought she was en-^ aged to this guy Moody." She is. And I'm glad she camt : me with her scorn for the veracity of fingerprints." "What are you gelling at?" "Ijx>k here, my boy. See these fingerprints of Moody that you ook in Iris studio! See the difference?" No! There's no difference." joke? fingerprints of Have you those fingerprints of mine taken from the base of your telephone? . "Yep. I've got a flock of blown up prints for you."

Here's one from a veined marble. See the veins. Here's one from his sk—see the grain of the wood?" "Of coursel The background always .aflects the regularity and shows through the fingerprints. But it doesn't change the pattern." "Certainly not. And I'm thank- rests his hand softly on a bronze object." * * • S TIVERS toppled over Into a chair. The whole structure of his faith was toppling. He stared at Queripel in a cqrna of helplessness.' Queripel finished him off. I don't believe that Paul Moody, ever touched'that felt base. He swore to me that he never laid a finger on the telephone, and neither did Wendell Palmer while Moody was there. These fingerprints give no evidence that he ever did. Fingerprints don't lie, and they don't say that Moody lied." So abject was: Stivers', dismay. . nd so benumbed he was by the collapse of. all his works and be- iefs that Queripel took mercy on him. He had one last protest: 'But I saw fingerprints on the felt base of the Palmer telephone. I dusled them and • brought them out as clear as daylight, and then I taped them. 1 labeled them on the spot. And when I got baclc here, they were in my kit.
