XVI TF Gloria gave the necklace to the police now, they'd never believe she hadn't known all along where it was, she decided. They'd probably put her in jail too and that would hardly help Milttadcs; they'd think the newly weds had just been in it together. "I do the swiping and Miltiades the carving," she figured out bitterly how the police niinds would work. That left the Denonis; they knew where the jewels were would do almost anything to ge 1 hold of them. "The man and woman who asked Sam what was in his lunch basket!" Gloria deduced excited. "Certainly though they wouldn't think I was dumb enough to bring the pie with the jewel: and then go off and leave it on thi beach,** j -But that \vas exactly what Glo ria might have done, if she hadn' known that the jewels were in th pie! It must have been the Be nonis. The only other possibility wa the mysterious and sinister Loft Gordon whom she couldn't seer to believe In without seeing, Wh was he called "Lofty"? A ta" man, very strong, who'd bee quick as lightning doubling up th body of Jack the Cork, gettin away with murder — so far a least — with the police watchin the very building! The telephone brought her, drip ping, out onto the bath mat. "Mrs. Brown?" Lieutenant Mc- aim asked and he sounded ex- ted. "We have found the motive nd are turning the evidence over the federal authorities. But ere \s one thing you cannot lie it of, you with your blarney." "I do not know what you're Iking about," Gloria said coldly. iVhat evidence?" He'd called her VTrs. Brown" instead of "Mulli- 1 so he must think this was erious. "The lab has just turned In uU report about the sugar jar •om your lunch basket.** "So what?" Gloria asked, puz- led. "It is hair heroin 1 ." He hung up • * • 'TE ROIN! Dope. GLori a s at there, her hand frozen to the eceiver, clutching the towel nbou er, unable to speak:. Who coulc ave done this awful thing to her? And why? That settled it; she ould never tell the police abou' he necklace now; they wouldn' 1 jclieve a syllable of it. The bes hing to do was to get rid of it ast. She started to get up, dress, di iomething about getting rid of th necklace, when the phone rani again. This lime it was Reuben he doorman, telling her three re Jorters were down in,the lobby t see her. Already. They must hav gotten a hot .tip from the lieuten ant who no longer-believed ther v/as even a half-doubt about Mil liades* innocence. But Gloria was too shaken jus" now by this awful dope buslnes to cross her knees and beam fatvi ously; she'd do that tomorrow she had to. "I am not at home to anyone Gloria said coldly and bange down the receiver. Maybe no she could get into something mor than a towel. But the day wa getting hotter by the minute an when it gets hot in Brooklyn, stews. Already the white brie walls of the court outside her win dow were like the four sides fjirnacc, focusing heat. She ose her shortest pair of shorts d a flowered bra because with porters around, she couldn't go itsiclc until after dark. But was she going to get out isccn tonight to lake the jewels Tony , the Kruilman's, with ocks of reporters snooping about, ot to mention the police in gen- al and llansen In particular? iC had barely time to don her runty niiment when the phone ing again. II was long distance. arc you all right? 1 Colonel Perkins' voice dc- tandcd, crisply. "A reporter from Boston paper just called me. I'l ic them for slander," her parent aged. "It'll be spread all over blank ely -blank sheet this fternoon!" M I'm sorry, father," Gloria mur- urecl meekly. "1 am taking the next plane.™ "No! Please don't, Father!" Gloria had enough complications ow without him arriving, suing slander nil over the place, He'd be one more to evade tonight. I — I have things to do." She vailed, panicky, for him to snort. Nonsense!" but strangely he lidn't. It had been one of his strictest ule-s by which he had brought up his family that everyone had a ight to his own reticences.. "Even a child is an individual and should ie treated as such," he had insisted. "Very well," the colonel said stiffly. There was an awkward pause and then .he nsked, "You need any money?"" "Five hundred would help," she admitted. "I don't know how much the lawyer will charge." "A thousand would be better." His generosity touched her deeply for she knew he had more pride than cash, Thank you, clear," she murmured. "Goodby, daughter." This unwonted note of affection was the last straw that broke her seVf control; she hung up the phone, (caned her bright head on her arms and burst Into tears, sobbing uncontrollably. <To Be Continued) WE BUY AND SELL USED & NEW FURNITURE PHONE 2112 A, BETTER LAUNDRY For Expert Laundry »nd Dry Cleaning—Coll 4474 NU-WA-— We're Proud of Our Work ine work • Woodwork tacturing • Welding BARKSDALE MFG.
