R was on* o< the trto Lily Wyndam had unkindly described »s "freaks," who had joined the yacht in Germany; a tall, youngish-looking Teuton somewhere in his Inter 30's. The creature gloried in the name ot Seiglried Meer. Meer glanced up at the starlit •ummer sky. "Even at this sea*&>, gentlemen, it is pleasant, is it not, to be going to the southward? The tropical West Indian islands are very beautiful, I «m told." "You were in the Navy, Herr Meer?" Lynch interjected. "A submariner?" Even in the three - quarters Darkness 1 could detect Meer's astonishment His recovery-was rapid. "Oh, no, you are mistaken. The '"tic knowledge I have of the "a is that when I was a boy >nd then a youth my good father 'cl me do much sailing in a small Mat." "Von lived near the sea, then?" Lynch said. . Having, in effect, already said so, our walcr-born Siegfried hud to agree. "You're from Colbcrg?" 'Neinl The Hcinsrichwaldt." "Ah, the Kurlsch«s Holt, 1 Lynch observed. "A I USS kf M« W VM4.K spot for sailing." We were only a few paces from our respective destinations. The German went to bis cabin— G—at the after end of the cor ridor on the port side. Lynch led the way to mine, "Not entirely satisfactory, Dean«, ot course," he declared rather loudly. "But I feel we have made progress. Great prog* ress.' As h« waj delivering himself of these not particularly choice gems of monologue, Lynch was darting soft-footedly about my room. Opening the closet door, he removed a pair ot gray flannel trousers. "If there's nothing else you want me for I shall say goodnight, then," Lynch went on. "I will report to Mr. Sand, as you suggested, then turn in." LYNCH opened the door into the corridor and-eloeed k again with himself still inside. Then, with gross disregard for my property, he tiptoed acroes the cabin and tightly wrapped the base ot the fixed lamp on the bedside table with my trousers. The lamp, which I now really noticed for the first time, was a Bronze affair with an elaborately wrought,, open-work base. It was within these bases, as Lynch had told me—for there is a lamp of .he same type and same position each cabin—that our less- .han-genial hoct had installed hk microphones. Lynch looked pleased. "Meer ems to me to have the bearing of an omcer. I found his look ftt he stars revealing. It was automatic. It wa« also expert. Meer was checking the ship's course. Yet neither his eyes nor his skin lave tht weathered, hardened nok o( UM utual naval .officer. therefort deduced the subma-. flat Mcvict." Lvoch imiltd. I "For the rest, Colberg is I mall port in Pomerania. On the Baltic. I had guessed from his appearance that Meer was a Prussian. Probably an East Prussian. Prussians do not like to be thought to be anything but Prussians. So, in denial, Meer promptly assured me 1 was right The Heinrichswalde is a coastal district r in East Prussia. The Kurisches Haft is a shallow body of water separated from the open Baltic by a sand island. I suggest that' also tells us something of Meer's political prejudices." I nodded. "East Prussia is now Russian territory. That means that if Meer's people had any property—and a kind father who gives little Siggy a sailboat suggests it—then that property is now firmly in the grip of those boys who don't let go easy. All of which would make Seigfried • bitter anti-Communist." • * • AT the end of two hours I reached the conclusion the passengers of the Vittoria "bedded down" slowly. At the end <rf three I was sound asleep. Lynch roused me with an unkind toe. He perched on the edge of the bed. The Victoria's cabins sported beds, not berths. My trousers were still wrapped around the .base of the lamp, so he could speak, freely. •I saw Sand. He admitted me, I may »ay, rather grudgingly. My suggestion that you and not he may have been the knife-thrower's intended victim may have persuaded him. Or, it may not. Mr, Sand is not communicative. In either ,c«se he is now sure that one of his guests, or tone member of the crew, is a ruthlen and a reckless criminal. That 'act puzzles and disturbs him. It has not yet alarmed him sum* clcntly to induce him to confide in me. My broad hint's that we M briefer] more thoroughly as to Ihe precise purpose of the trip and the background of everyone aboard, were turned aside. That's why i plan a little escapade for us tonlfht." . "Namely?" (It «e I? "Why does the boss always wait till quitting time to ttart showing pictures of the big fish hs caught on his vacation?"
