"MENTAL CASE" CHAPTER XI a moment the cabin of the schooner was deathly quiet. Then Burke spoke. "Let go of her!" he said from between closed teeth. "Take your in, she might be swept out to sea | took her to the only store. She "So you have decided to tell us t h i n g s about the 'bomber?" prompted Karl, grinning with victory but retaining his hold on Judith. "He is not," Judith cut in. "Do what you like but he's not talking. He is not selling American defense lor my sake." She turned, her eyes "Don't say anything, Claude Carter To Speak At. Meeting SAN ANTONIO-- Claude Carter of Harlingen,' president-elect of the State Bar Association of Texas, will be among the speakers. U. .S, Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson is to speak tonight. Two Feared Dead In Oklahoma Fire MARIETTA, Okla,,--()-- Flames spreading from a grocery store demolished seven business buildings last night and damaged many others. Two men were missing and believed dead. Firemen from Ardmore, Okla., and Gainesville, Tex,, joined - volunteers in this county-seat town of 2,000 and worked, three hours to control the blaze. New Donna Lions Chief Installed DONNA -- Clifford Peters, new Lions ^ club president, welcomed guests and visitors at Installation ceremonies held -Thursday night, with Moulton Cobb as speaker for the evening. Fifty, members and their wives attended the banquet. Helium is found in all .mineral sources of radium, in mineral waters and. in volcanic gases,. on Burke. .Tom." . Then the foreigner slapped her. The blow staggered her and she reeled back against the wall. "Stop it!" roared Tom, and broke loose from Heavy's grasp. He could not do much, tied as he was, but he made a lunge for Karl. The force of his body knocked the man over and broke the hold on Judith. ' .While they scrambled to get Burke under control, Judith dashed up the cabin steps. One o: the men yelled and sprang after her, but she did not pause. She was just one, jump ahead of the man as she reached the rail. His hands grabbed af her as she plunged overboard. The cold splash oi water took her breath away for an instant. When no shot followed her, she thought, "They're sure I will drown. Maybe I will." But with determination she started swimming for the lighted horizon. She would not let herself think of Tom back there in the schooner. r If she could reach . shore .she could summon help. -. Just then the clouds and. fog .lifted for a few minutes and the moon came out brightly. She saw that she was not so far fmm a cove. 'If only she could reach it without being tossed against the rocks! A swell rose, tossing her over and under as it broke into a white ·foam. When she came out of it, spitting water, another one caught her and bounced her around like a grain of sand. But it carried her a little nearer the cove. A blackness settled over her as she felt herself go down, and down. · · · TUDITH moved, groaned and ·* slowly opened her eyes. She saw a blue sky overhead. She sat up and looked about in bewilderment. She was in a little cove protected by rock on three sides, the pounding ocean on the other. The tide' was out; when it came again. The thought brought her instantly to her feet. Shivering with her damp clothes and the biting air, she set out to scale the rocky wall. Sharp rocks bit at her hands and brought blood. Her long fingernails broke like paper. Her shoes were gone and her clothes were in rags. But tugging, pullir.g, slipping, she finally reached the top of the cliff. She sought to pierce the heavy fog blowing in from sea. As she was about to turn away, the fog suddenly thinned and, she saw a number of pleasure boats anchored down the coast, but she had no idea which one she had escaped from. And now was not the time to ponder. She had to get to' the authorities and find help for Tom. She turned and startecl away, fighting the nausea in the pit of her stomach. The going was slow and the rough earth bruised her feet. Again and again she fell, rose wearily to her feet and stumbled on. At last she reached a lettuce ! farm and went up to the little house. There she collapsed on the doorstop. A Chinaman came hurrying out to stare -at her._ Her throat was so dry she couldn't talk until he handed her a drink of water. "Can you take me to town?" she managed to ask in a weak whisper. "Me no- gottee car, ladee," he sang, and lifted his hands helplessly. "A wagon?" she suggested hopefully. He shook his head. "No gottee." But he pointed to a mule, and there was a happy smile on his face. "Me fixy," he told her. Judith leaned her head against the post · of the porch and tears dimmed her blue eyes. "How am I to ride a mule?" she wondered. "But I have to." The old man was gone a long time down at the barn. When, he did return Judith's lips, slowly parted in amazement. The mule was harnessed to the barn door. Trie Chinaman was grinning broadly. Judith laughed despite her misery. . * * * along, ladee," he called, and stopped for her. Judith stepped on the sled but decided quickly she had better sit down. She was skinned and bleeding. Her once beautiful curls were matted and ;she was dirty. She looked worse than a tramp. The town they reached hours ater was hardly more than a ·wide spot in the road. The Chinamar thanked him profusely for his aid. Judith ·went inside the building. She tried to explain to the man about her capture and escape, and how she was washed to the rocky shore. He stared at her, nodding his head, but by his look she knew he did not believe a word of her story. "You will help me, won't you?" she begged, her eyes tragic. "Get me a car?" "Sure, miss. Just a minute. I'll call one." He went to the back of the store. But what the grocer really called was an ambulance, as Judith discovered when the car came clanging to a slop before the store. The attendants came in. "Here she is, boys," said th« man. "Why--why" Judith stammered,' "I don't want an ambulance. I asked for a car." She turned on the owner of the store, her eyes blazing. "You old hypocrite! You can't do this to me. Take your hands off," she yelled at the attendants as they took her by the arms and led her, struggling, to the -waiting ambulance. · , 'Mental case," said the man, following them. "Talks about spies arid escaping in the ocean." "You old viper," screamed Judith as she was forced into the car and the door closed, "Don't you take me to a hospital," she; warned the white-coated man. "I want to go to the Watson Airplane factory in San Diego." "Sure, miss," agreed the young doctor soothingly. 1 "You think I'm crazy? Well, what you're doing is crazy--interfering with justice and letting criminals escape! You cen't do this." "Please don't worry, miss," he said. "The name is Miss Kingsly and I am employed by the Watson. Airplane Co. I was kidnaped by spies. Can't you understand?" "If you will just be quiet, Miss Kingsly," he began. ; "Keep quiet yourself," shs snapped at him. She huddled as far away as she could get while the ambulance roared down the highway. She clenched her fists and bit hard on her lower lip to keep from crying. She refused to answer the questions put to her by the young interne. It was the last straw when the car rolled to a stop and- she looked out to see the hospital before her. She burst into a flood of tears. The nurse at the desk motioned with her hand to inquire if it were a mental case. The attendants nodded, as they led Judith to the elevator., (To Be Concluded)
