Gloria asked, slilJ holding MiLtiades 1 hand. "For the same reason that you call a big man 'Tiny.' Because he was small/ 1 the lieutenant explained. "All the time 1 thought he was Hansen, because Hansen was tall," Gloria said, glancing at Hansen who smiled proudly. "We couldn't disillusion you because Hansen—you knew him as Reuben, . the doorman—was too valuable to us. He'd wormed his way into the Benoni gang without their knowing he was a federal officer." "A federal officer!" Gloria blushed. She hadn't been very bright. That was why Hansen— Reuben—had been following her tonight. He thought the pie might have heroin in it, or that Gloria was carrying heroin around. Maybe he thought Gloria was another Sal! Probably it had been Hansen's badge that had made Ella Mae, the beauty operator, scream •Ella Mae looked pretty shady herself. But Gloria consoled herself the thought that both she ant Hansen had mixed things up thoroughly as the ingredients fo a pie, yet somehow they had coim out right. The . whole recip emerged as something to be proi of. • It just went to show wha Gloria had suspected, that a rea cook didn't follow the rules in th cookbook, but tasted, experiment ed for herself ... as Gloria ha experimented with death whU Lofty held his gun on her. She murmured, '^Why did Loft? follow me around so?" She un clasped Millindes hand, "He suspected that you kne either whore the necklace was o where the Benonis were Eliding, icutcnant McGann pointed out. And he was afraid you'd learn— veil; look." Ho drew his handkerchief from is pocket, unfolded it carefully, the necklace lying there ookcd like a stage prop or some- ling the Mcdicis might have vorn, with its massive setting, its nonuous green stones. The lieutenant pushed at the lasp. which was as big as a pill iox, and something white and lowdcry fell into his hand, "Heroin." he said grimly. 'There's room to store the stuff under every gem." "You mean Alicia Strong, the stage star—" Gloria gasped but tfcGann shook his head. "We don't know yot, frankly tfaybc Sal just used the necklace 'or a hiding place, safe because it was so improbable, and she always lad access to her sister's dressing room." He put the necklace carefully away and Gloria was glad to see the end of the evil thing that hat cost so many lives. The lieutenant murmured, "O course it was Sal who jettisone< dope into your sugar jar at Jones Beach. She saw Hansen and go scared." • • • "CUPPOSE we'd eaten some o 'J itl" Gloria shivered. "It's good thing you got arrested, Mil tiades, so the police got it." "Yeah, I made a swell goat, Miltiades said b'itterly. He was still worrying about hi job. But surely the office won Id n fire an innocent man. "It was what you said about Sa and Lofty qu: rreling that gave u our first real clue," McGann tol Gloria. Shu remembered the seen —on the street when she was talk ing to Sammy the newsboy. Sn must have Miltiades buy a gun for Sammy's father. "Any time you want a job wii the Brooklyn police, let me know cGann was saying. Hiinsen spoke now tor the first me: "Just one thing. Mrs. Brown, /hat was that poem yon shot ofty Gordon with? It wasn't in y McGuffey's reader." "It was Irom 'The Frogs,'" Gloa told him. "Aristophanes wrote about 400 B.C. It's my favorite reck drama." "II ought to nm on Broadway," •lit! Hansen. "It's still got what It kes. And so have you, Mrs. rown." "FIIE next thing, they'll be wanting you in the F.D.I.," liltiartes told Gloria bitterly. "It's asy to see who wears the pants in his family. I take a nice safe oom in jail while you knock off public enemy." "They also serve who only stand nd want out," Gloria giggled, her imple going through its customary lunt in the corner ot her mouth. Suddenly she tensed, began to cream and flung' herself frantl- ally into her husband's arms, jann whirled nervously, ex- deling at least to see that Lofty Gordon had broken out of the jail lospital. "A mouse!" Gloria shrieked. "In he corner." "Qniet, foolish. He won't hurt you," Miltiades soothed, holding icr lightly and quite masterfully. Why, she was actually shaking. Lieutenant McGann saw and marveled. She had torn Brooklyn apart with her soft little hands to save her husband, thrown a pie at a gangster and quoted Greek at a killer. Now she was yelling her bead ofl over a mouse! Gloria quieted down, lifted her head from her husband's shoulder and winkod al the lieutenant before she settled down again on the divan.' "The little spalpeen!" Lieutenant McGann chuckled to himself. "She'll lead him a merry chase and he'll love It. I always heard that Hoslori was the Athens of America, but there aren't many girls smart enougn to cover up when their brains are showing, like Mulligan." Probably ths Greeks had a name lor her. (THE END) "They may be the famous pigaons of St. Mark's, but they don't look any different to me than the courthouse pigeons at homo!"
