McGANN of Homicide was a plump Little Irishman in a sail and popper suit Me was rather like two dumplings set on top of each other, the small an the big one, hut there was nothing funny about his eyes, hard and very blue with sparks in them when he wns mnd, as now, like iwo pieces of steel clashing, which betrayed his railing—that ot put- ling miscreants in jail. "It would have been wiser," he commented, ignoring Gloria nnd peaking to Miltiades, "ir you had Called the police at once when you uund Jack the Cork." "You know who he Is!" Gloria ^•ricd, waving her long lashes at nim admiringly. "1 thought he couldn't be just a delivery boy. I 'hink the Brooklyn police are won- Icrful! Do you know who killed lim, too?" "I," the lieutenant told her, "am risking the questions around here, young lady. Since when did the Cork become a delivery boy? Give." So she told him about the hat from Ariadne's, how the lock had slipped on^the bathroom door— maybe and maybe not—and how upset Mrs. Benoni had been when her husband phoned .-shout something on page 7 of the newspaper, which McGann read avidly when she showed it to him. "Cv.nery, Slandt, Gordon—Lofty Gordon! That'd be htm. He was paroled yesterday and we were expecting trouble but not so soon. Jack the Cork was a member of the Benoni gang and Lofty used to bfi. But something happened, Copj/ro^i "SW bi NU •«.><, E M ; we don't know exactly what, and he got on (he outs and was seni up for live years. The Cork snitched on him. Jack was called the Cork because he was very fond of champagne, and once he'd jpuilcd the cork he never put the ] bottle down till it was empty. An expensive habit, so he had to stool .occasionally; and when soused, ho I was very careless with a knife." "I'm getting mixed up, 1 thought it was he who was knifed!" Gloria murmured. The lieutenant nodded unhappily. "He was. And you arc not the only one who is mixed up, because we have been \watchini; the Benonis and now they ape gone and Ihe emeralds are gone-- -and the subway," Mlttiades refused the ride The idea of drawing up to the otnrc in a Black Maria even disguised as a black radio car, was somehow repugnant. "You all right now, Kiltcn?" 'I am far from all right but I'll do something about it at once." Gloria said, making a rueful face at hoi disheveled self in the mir- mr. "I feci like the leper In the Bible, 'Unclean, unclean? 1 1 shall burn everything I have on in the incinerator. Is there any reason why we should not go to Jones' Bench for a swim when Miltiades gets back? 1 should like to get out of. here." "Go ahead," the lieutenant told her "But don't get excited if you spot someone following you. Checking on you, yes. but more for prelection." so is Jack the Cork. It could be the Benonis killed him themselves, j before (hey skipped with the jewels." "Using my knife and getting him neatly delivered on our dumbwaiter," Miltiades commented bitterly. ''Why did they pick on us for the fall guys?" "If they did," the lieutenant amended gently, getting up. "After all, it was your knife and ownership of the murder weapon . . ." He left it at that, asking, "You say you work at 194 Broadway?" • • • jVTILTIADES nodded and looked "*• actively miserable, for the company was not going to like this sort of publicity over an em- ploye and jobs were getting scarcer. "Good grief, I'd better call Ihe boss!" he recalled suddenly. "I didn't even tell him 1 was leaving this morning; I just walked out. Maybe," he said uneasily, "I'd better go tell him myself about this mess. Not over the phone." "Want n lift?" the lieutenant offered- "I think I'll lake a run over to Ariadne's. Don't worry. There wonTbc anything about you in the papers—ycL The reporters' war cry will be for the Benonis, But don't decide to take a trip, you two, scie?" "Okay. Thank you, but I'll lake ^HE door closed behind them and, for the first time in her married life, she was glad to get id of her husband because she vnntcd to think. It was all her *au)t Militaries was in this nre- licnment, fantastic and unbelievable as U was, so it was up to icr to get him out- If she'd stuck the principles poked into her along with her spinach in early childhood, not to speak to strange people even in church, she'd never invc been mixed up with Jewel ;hieves and murderers. Not that Gloria had been brought up as a snob. Hadn't she banged i typewriter for three years after ler big coming out party at Hampshire House? True, her father. Colonel Perkins, had had to have lunch with Prof. John Nemo Brown before she was allowed to take the job, which at the time had seemed extremely stufTy but which now seemed safe, sane, and very henllhy—a lot healthier than having to be trailed by a plainclothes man because maybe she knew too much and maybe the same unpleasant thing could happen to her as lo Jack the Cork. "I'd belter go get some food for a lunch to take to Jones' Beach," she decided sensibly. She and Miltiades could stay lill the moon rose and it would be all romantic and silvery. - (To B« Contlnned) The Hudson River Is a f Ceded by tides all the way to Troy. N.
