A Demonstration Today Chas, S, Lemons Furniture .:vu of (he day was the igest in Gloria Brown's 22 years which had seen a devastating depression, a World Wnr, and an atom bomb. Nothing had harrowed her like this enforced i action, because this time she w entirely alone. There was no mass psychology to buoy her up; these murders had blown up her own safe Hllle world and she couldn't even start patching it up; she didn't dare 'ry until after dark. It seemed to her by 4 p. rn. tha' already she was an old, old lady she could almost feel her hair anc teeth dropping ot it- She shivered, remembering Sa! and Jack the Cork. Why hadii'l Hansen %-ome by for his piece 01 pie? she wondered. Even if h< were suspicious, he'd be better • company than no one. Probabl; after being on duly nil night, hi was sleeping. Maybe he hadn' -meant anything abcuit the apples . alter all, she thought; could be she. had made a conquest. Sh made a wry mile grimace. She'i knpw^whep -she..saw .him; next. How was she going lo make Ih Benonis tell what she had t know? Just how did one go abou getting a gun? Did one have t have a permit?- But there mus be places to get hold of. a gu without the police knowing. "I'm developing the critnina mind," Gloria thought. "They sa if you tell an infant often cnoug that he's a had boy, when h grows up he'll rob a bnnk ething. I'm no child but . . . ammyJ" The little newsboy's adoring grin ashed into her mind like a bea- on of light, for she knew that if I were possible for him to help icr. he A-ouJd do so; and ask no luestions. She rushed lo the ihonc, asked Reuben. "Is Hansen round, by any chance?" "Why—er—yes," he stammered. "Tell him I got to go do some hopping," she I old him eagerly, but I'm going out the basement loor to skip (he reporters." Hansen wouldn't come close enough to hear vhal she said to Sammy anyway^ jut if he did she could write Sammy a note and say wliat she lad lo. Might as well pretend to co-operate with the police, she decided. "The briscmcnl, please," she told ;he elevator boy, glad the doors were opaque glass as they slid by ;he reporter-infested lobby. She ueld her breath when she got out but there were no signs of either H arisen or the reporters. Was he may he talking lo them so she could get away? There was no one in the basement except the head janitor anc a blue-coaled policeman sitting ot rickety chairs and complaining Oi the heat. They hid something tha smcllcd suspiciously of beer a: she fled by but they did not Iry to slop her. She heard Sammy's piping voici as she turned the corner ont< Fifth Avenue, and when he came running tip Jo. her, his-face brigh at seeing her, she took the pape be held out, murmuring; "Flat ties around. I need your help Sammy. Where can we talk— alone?" "The Park," Sammy replied in slanlly. "But I gotta gel rid these papers first. Handsome. 1 won't lake n minute." Waiting for him on the curb • Splashed all over the front page was a picture of MtEliadcs behind bars, talking to Alexander Grant, his lawyer, while down in (he orner of the page, she saw with orror, was a cheese-cake photo f Alida Strong, the actress, who eemed to be mostly legs and osom. And on the liosom was an normous necklace. II this ever ot to-Boston, Gloria and Milliades vcre,finished socially! The headlines yelled above the uzzing in her head: EX-G.I.

BENONI used such a big pie plate so the necklace would all go in," Gloria thought nimbly, with the inconsequence n which a person takes refuge when the mind is too numb lo face reality. At least the Jieulemini lad not yet totd the reporters that .he knife was Gloria's or about :he dope. Probably lie was leav- tliat up lo the federal authorities. Did they lock a person at Leavenworlh or Alcatrax for dope peddling? She licked her dry lips and it seemed to her as she stood there miserably on Ihe sidewalk waiting for Sammy that everyone who passed cast upon her a hard, suspicious eye. "Look out!" she gasped. Someone jostling by had pushed her almost ofi the curb and Ihe clasp ot her handbag .opened, spilling out lipstick, coin purse, bobby pins, her last letter from home and a recipe for jellied lomalo salad, into Ihe gutter. As she gathered up her, belongings with shaking Fingers, .she looked about bul no one was even near her. "What gives?" Sammy cum a running up.
