I guess you don't know me, but just 'ask Mrs. Jones about the butcher who saved those juicy steaks for her during the war'." • w XVII «T\ON'T look like'(hat. I'm not •^ going to sue." Mark leaned across Miss I.ibby's immaculate desk. "So she lied about never having worked before, she didn't inake friends, and she went to pieces when an irate customer accused her ol short changing. . . Girls like you major in psychologj or something, don't yol "" "Yes," Miss Libby admitted "And I'm supposed to be Kood." "Well, be good now. What do you make of all this?" "Trouble in the past. Maybe n fcrush with the law. On the verge ol being found out and couldn't lace it. Heck, Mr. East—-sorry, excuse it, but I feel awful. But what •tan we do? It's too late." "Maybe it isn't. Have you got the Smith girls handy?" "They're outside now, trying not to look terrified. Come in," she Called. • Moke and Poke. filed in nnd lined themselves against the wall. "You're not going to ,bc shot," Miss'Libby said kindly. 1 "This is Mr.'iEast. Did Bcnz tell you what he's here for?" "Yes'm," Moke said. "Then answer, his questions, that's all." She tossed the next move to Mark with open relict and . relaxed on the end of her spine. "This is going lo be easy," Mark said. "I hope you don't mind ii 1 call you Moke and Poke. Now did you girls know Iluth Millci very well?" .They answered simultaneously affirmatively and negatively, and Kurst into tears. "1 know how you feel," he said, ""bat's the way Mrs. Sulton feels too. She's afraid Ruth was in •rxnc sort of trouble, and it upsets "CURE. And between us, we're ^ Koing to help. All, you have lo do is answer my questions. Now. Hope House is full of uirls. wonder if there's any one girl you don't like?" "We don't like nobody," Moke said. "It don't pay." "I sec. Who is Jewel Schwab?" "She rims Ihc elevator." "Nice ,'jirl?" "Kind of grumpy, wouldn't you say, FokcV" "Inhibited. She can't ever got a fellow." "Thai's flue, llia'.'s the slufT. Now, I want to s?e Jewel tonight, but I understand a Miss llracly looks over nil callers. Highl?" "She tries lo. So does Miss Small. Who lold you" "A tall girl with spots on her ace." "Kitty Brice. She's the telephone operator and helps at the lesk." The corners of Moke's nouth said she didn't care for Citty. 'And who's Miss Small?" •Miss Brady's assistant. Brady's the Head, SmaH's the second Head. I'hcy'rc educated, you could talk to them, Mr. East. The rest of us got orders nobody was to talk, uut they'd talk to you. You loll them about Mrs. Sutton and they'll understand. You sec, il's like this. There's a lot of swells behind Hope House, and Miss Brady and Miss Smalf have got lo keep scandal out or it's bod for their reputation ns Heads." Mark nodded. "They're right. Scandal would be very bad. 15ut suicide doesn't necessarily mean disgrace. It could mean something sad, like heartbreak. Do you suppose that was Ruth's trouble?" ""MO. sir!" Moke was positive. •"-' "Maybe we didn't know hoi- so very v/cll, but we know it wasn't anything like that. You notice a tiling like liliil. U shows. . . . But I've been thinking about something. When she moved lo Ihc House she sort of changed. She moved on the Saturday and on Monday she died. But 1 don't know—" . "Sure you know, Moke. Co on." "Well, 1 don't think she ale all Ihe meals, and that's funny because the meals arc cood. She said it was because she was sick, but she looked like shc_wa:; in a trance nr something. That was on the Sunday." "Never looked like lhat in Ihe store?" "No, sir. ... I wish wc't! paid her more attention now." Moke's eyes filled again, but Mark went on as it he didn't see. "Tell me about the Sunday. You, the other one, Poke. Il'o your turn now." "We saw her on Sunday morn- inn," Poke said. "We didn't sos her on Saturday because we had n dale. We had her lo our table for breakfast, but she wouldn't eat. And Sunday was the ten day. I'hc big tea, with bought refreshments, and sewing for the party." Poke covered the tea from start to finish; Mrs. Marshall-Gill, the costumes and the masks that made everybody look the same, Ihe mole, and Ihe simulated pearls, pink. And Hulh in a corner by herself. Moke concurred soberly, bob- Ding her head. "Yeah, yeah, Ihal's right. That's the way it was. Am then she spilled tea on her new suit she'd saved up for." A sudder look oC surprise crossed her lace "That's funny." "Funny?" Mark turned from Moke lo I'oke to Miss Libby. They were frowning at each other with complete understanding. "Funny?" he repeated. 'Yeah," Moke said. "When you save up for n new suit and get it. yon don't jump out of a window." lie addressed himself to Miss Libby.
