Ken- ben was tall enough to be called "Lofty" and he scorned to know Aplenty about the Be-no n is. Lofty once had been a member of the gang- There was safety now only in lights and people. Her teeth chal- lered as she looked about desuer- alely, saw above her a great lighted window with a red neon sign, Klla Mac's Beauty Shoppe. Gloria whirled, ran up the shallow brownslone slops, her breath coming in great gasps. Would Lofty follow? / "It's n o'clock, Miss," the girl in the .soiled while uniform standing behind the dc.sk said as Gloria shot inside like something hurled out o[ a gun. "We close in MO minutes. We can't do nothing for you tonight, denrie." She yawned, revealing two golc teeth and the fact she was chewing gum. Gloria's eyes were frantically ransacking the place for the back door. She slid her sha hand into her bag, extricated a S5 bill and dropped it onto th scratched wooden counter. "Not even a quick shampoo? Gloria murmured. "Of course, expect to pay extra this time o nigh I." No more was necessary Ella Mae's hand swept out and tin bill was no longer there. "Last booth," she said, resign edly. How long did she have? Alayb she (MI it Id slip out the back doo while Elln Mae was getting th shampoo, Gloria planned. He hands were jerking and sh perched on the extreme edge the big leather chair with th stuffing leaking out the bottom longing to make a dash for tl: door behind the curtain but m daring because Blla Mae w; standing nearby, QUing a bolt ith nauseous-looking gray liquid. As she came back, Gloria could nly settle back into the big chair, ith her precious pic box and the mdbiig containing the gun piled n her lap. "Relax, dearie," Klla Mae urged, uucled. "Don't you want to put our bundles down? What you got them anyway, the Crown ool s?" "Sure. An emerald necklace," loria told her, grinning sickly. * » • -T/"ILLE[l-DILLEIt, ain't you?" Klla Mae smeared gray goo II over Gloria's rigid head and water ran down into I he nampoo basin like something inking to death. The things wom- n sufTer to be beautiful!

She froze lo Ihe chuir, Ler head sltll dripping water and loo as Ella Mne went out lo see vho it was, drawing the curtain lecorously. "Good evening." It was I-ofly, nil right. Gloria grabbed a towel, nopped madly ut her hair, ami {ripping her precious bundles, tip- occl with agonizing slowness be- rl her own curtain toward the jack door, as he asked Ella Mae 'A girl in a dark-blue slack sui come in here, Sister?" "What's it to you?" Ella Mac asked sullenly. Thank goodncs for the S5 bill! If Ella Mae could just hold him a Tew seconds more Gloria had her hand on the door knob when she heard Ella Ma gasp. "He pulled a knife on herl Gloria knew wildly, "Like Sal! She ought to bluy, help the poo kid, but . . . How Gloria actually got Ihroug the door, out into the alley, sh never could remember later, hi all at once she was running crazil down the dark alley, cry in; bumping into things, mingled teai and goo running into her pantin mouth.

"Help her get away," Gloria rayed and leaned weakly back gainst the closed door, shaking lere in the darkness, letting the wful pounding of her heart die own, wishing she eould have elped Klla Mae and knowing she ouldn'l.

Hut the rc- ief didn't last long because Mrs. Benoni said, "1 wish you didn't ":iave to konk her, Benny. 1 don't like the idea of tying her up and leaving her. Suppose she chokes?
