ACTUALLY Gloria was so rc- lieved to get away from the attnospherc of horror ami sUspi- :ion they had left behind at the jplcndide, Uiat she did not care .vhat happened to their things It was just as well she hadn'l old Miltiades about seeing Mrs 3enom because he would have Ln- oislod upon telling the licuLenani and that would hove complicated things still further, for that suspicious McGann would never have Relieved Gloria hadn't planned the meeting that she did not know whether the Benonis had tin jewels or not. Gloria sighed and went into the bathhouse to put on her suit. Tin enormous pair of perspiration soaked corsets she found then were a bit trying, so she got ou as soon as she could. j The hideous events of the da> wove, fo r the m o men t, was he from their memory and for a few moments they floated there side b side, beyond the milling crowd alone with laughter, the sea an< (he sky. Gloria glanced back a the scrambling mass of pcopl near shore, writhing together lik worms in a bucket and sighc -compassionately. I "They're afraid," she said ."Afraid to trust themselves to th deep water and so of course the sink. Let's never be afraid agai my darling. ...

Her face and ody were still under water and er head rolled ns if she had no ontrol over it. As they watched, ic began to sink again. "Quick. She's drowning!" Gloria aspcd. Miltiades' big shoulders flashed ast her and she could only fol- iw as fast as she could, her rcalh coming in gasps, her heart oumling. By the lime she caught P, Miltiades had the red-capped irl in his arms and was holding icr, up to his own neck in water. "Go back!" he told Gloria des- icrately. "Gel away from me! Don't let on you even know me ce? Just go home at once!" Was he crazy? Gloria slared al im and then down al the f.;irl ler heart stopped beating entirely or a second because it looked as X the girl had two caps on, the ed one on her head and a white m her hack; bu, when you looked more closely you saw the red hilt ol a knife protruding from the cap that clung to her shoulders. Someone had stabbed her In the jack with a knife wrapped in a lathing cap! The crowd, sensing excitement, lad begun to surge toward them and the lifeguard was blowing his whistle and running from his tower toward his dory. As Miltiades strode grimly closer to shore with his lerriblc burden, a minor riot ensued. One man yelled, "She's drowned! Get the copsl" A woman screamed, "Help! I ily, to the cop. "Believe it or hot I I haven't an idea who she is or anything about her." He murdered her! See the cnife?" The crowd surged around urn, shoving, pushing, angry while Gloria fought with her arms ind knees lo get through to him, half-sobbing, "Let me Ihrough! Ic's my h-husbandl" "Slmul back!" the first bawled again. "All of yez." no one paid him any altenllon. The jostling had loosened the dead giiTs red bnthing cap that, as Gloria finally reached Mil- .iades 1 side, the cap fell back to show a strand of dyed, parti-col- ored hair and she knew where she had seen the girl before. • • • IT'S Sal!" Gloria knew blankly 1 and then yelled, "You let go of my husband!' A big bruiser clad in a pair shorts printed in large palm trees had. jumped up onto Miltiades' back and was bawling, "I got him! He can't gel away!" "Let him go, Mister, i'rn In charge here," an aulhoritalive voice said and Gloria was never so glad to see anyone before in her whole life as Lieutenant McGann's stern plump face, his de- I pcndable salt and pepper arm to ! which she clung as Miltiades an- 1 grily shook oft the kabitzer. "We found her out in the water!" Gloria babbled. "I sent Miltiades to help her—to save life." Then, as this did not seem exactly an appropriate way to put it. "1 saw her bobbing and thought she was drowning so Miltiades went to save her—" Her voice died away for the lieutenant had bent down, was examining the knife between the shoulder blades of the gir. lying there face down on the sand. He pushed back the white bathing cap gently from the handle and a Police!" (peculiar look came over his fnce. Two policemen had left the ra- " You folk s should patronize a new hardware store," Lieutenant McGann said, straightening Gloria and Miltiades stared at the knife. The small gilt letters stood out clear in the sunlight, M. B." It was Gloria's knife! It couldn't dio car up on the street and came running to meet Miltiades who, pushing his way through the rnob, laid the body unceremoniously into the arms of one of the cops and wiped his streaming face of perspiration and sea water.
