She stayed in the Lobby looking out until the police car turned the corner down toward Seventh Avenue, taking her husband to jail, and then with a quick glance about to be sure Hansen had not arrived yet from Jones' Beach, v she beckoned imperiously to the tall, resplendent new doorman who had been watching her intently under the visor of his cap with all the gold braid. "What is your name?" she demanded abruptly. "Reuben." He hesitated then as she waited, "Jones." "Can you get a message for me to Mrs. Benoni tonight?" Gloria asked him. The new doorman looked blank glanced over his shoulder, mumbling, "Who? Me?" When he looked back at her again, his eyes had narrowed to slits, his mouth was a hard line, his whole face had changed subtly into that o someone it would be unpleasant to fool with, dangerous as touching an' electric wire in the bathtub maybe. He asked, "Did Licutenan McGann ask you—" "The police and 1 are not pals,' Gloria told him, tapping the toe o£ her small white sandal.

"Yes? Yes?" he snapped. "Oh Gloria, is that you? You ought to know belter than to call me at this hour. 1 am preparing a lecture for tomorrow on Aristo- phanes. You remember the frog chorus which begins, 'lirckeke- kesh, koash, koash . . .'!" "Pop," interrupted Gloria desperately, "Miltiades is being questioned for murder! He is at the police station, this minute!" " 'It is best to he hanged on a good tree,' as the ancient proverb goes," the professor murmured , absently. "Murder? you say her window and turned on all the .iglits to keep her company, and 'hen sat down to consider what to do next 'Clet a lawyer," Milliadcs had lold her, but she didn't want a poor lawyer or even a medium- Sood one; she wanted the hest and there was no one to advise her about that except Militaries' boss, and Gloria did not know where he lived. She' glanced up at the clock and saw it was already five minutes after 9 p. m. She tought to hear from the Bcnonis before morning if they were as anxious to gel the pie as they had seemed, and meanwhile. she thought, brightening, why not try to find a lawyer from Boston?, He would be as good as a New York lawyer if not better? Maybe Miltiades' father knew a good one. In any case he should know what was happening to his only son. She drew a deep breath and reached for the telephone. It was eons before the professor answered but she had the operator keep trying and finally she heard the familiar irritation of his voice at being interrupted Miltiades had murdered someone? I'm sure the fellow deserved it Or was it a she?' "No, he didn't murder anyone but the police think he did," Gloria wailed, trying to snap him back 23 centuries.

You remember when Bacchus is trying to gel someone to carry his parcels for him down into Hades, he stops a hearse and asks: " 'Ilollah! you (here! You Deadman, can't you hear? "Listen, Miltiades is iall!" Gloria yelled desperately. "What shall I do about it?" "Get him out, of course. Goodby," said the professor and hung up the phone but he took it up again instantly to add, "Don't bother me again unless it is really important." This 'lime the line stayed dead. But the simple manner In which Ihe professor had disposed ol the question without worrying about lawyers or other legal quibbling had done Gloria good, for it clarified her own mind and confirmed her suspicions that when the law acts stuffy and hide-bound, refusing to believe in the innocence of one as obviously a good citizen as Miltiades, H is better to lake things into one's own hands. Even 11 one had to deal with jewel thieves or worse to prove a husband's innocence, so what?
