Dirii Ph. 3-6933 XVI TN a tew minutes, at course, as our eyes grew accustomed to it. the darkness did not seem as nearly total as we had thought. i From the Vittoria's port rail •we realized we were staring at the sheer wall of n cliff not more than 50 (eel away. We were so :close we had to crane our necks (to see (he top of it. Peering jdown, we could see the yacht 'was moored by fort and aft cables flat alongside what—in this remote, unlikely place—to judge by the straightness of the line- must be some sort of quay. On the other side of the ship there was^open water. But not much of iL Not more than 20 yards away there was the suggestion, again, of the line of a quay backed by another, lesser clifT and beyond that the rounded outline of a low hill. Dead ahead, the palisade rose vertically from the water's edge. TheVittoria was lying in a narrow rectangular basin, or slip, which even at night one could see had been carefully and massively engineered. I Forward of the cabins, near 'the rail, a human shape loomed lup out of. the dark. It was one of the sailors, a big ! Portuguese with • dragoon's i mustache. He was holding horizontal'.y across his cheit in Army rifle.'With bayoneL "Excuse, Senhores. No one U jto pass.** i "Oh, it'i you Gonculvett". Mid Lynch cheerfully. "Good evening Senhor Meet hii gone -Yes, sir." We moved off as if we couldn't possibly care less. Out of earshot Lynch whispered in my ear. "Bobby, we've got KJ go ashore!" 1 have an allergy," I whispered back, "to bayonets." "We could swim." "You," I muttered in his ear. "are paid. I just came for fun. In tuxedos? In that black water? With sharks? How would we get back?" "All right! All right!" Lynch cut me off impatiently. I raised a foot to rest it on the bottom rung of the ship's rail and missed it. My groping foot in it* thin evening pumps had got entangled with something. 1 bent down to feel it with my hands. Where we were standing, a conventional round life preserver hung from a rack against the railing. On a brass hook in the center of the ring there usually hung a coil ol thin but strong manila rope by which, in the event it were used, the life preserver could be hauled in. I nudged Lynch. Crouching, he repeated my investigations. He rose and put his lips close to my ear. 'Get into dark, rough clothes as quickly u you can. Dark clothes." • •. • DRESSED H I now was in dark trousers and a gray pullover, it was unlikely that the sailor on guard at the head of the compsnionway would see me. Quickly and silcr.tlj I climbed over the rail, gripped the doubled line, with > little scrambling got my rubber »olcd feet •gainst the Vtttoria'i »lde »nd begin to "walk" down. I irrived sooner than I had expected. In the dnrknest. I hod lotgotua UiM UK VltterU wu i yacht and not an ocean liner. My journey ended rump first in a distinctly ignominious sitting posture not more than 10 feet below the level of the deck. Lynch was ahead of me. With a sure hand he guided me to my feet. "If it's a submarine slip," he whispered, "it's been here a long time. Puzzling. It's a cement quay. But apparently almost completely overgrown." • « • KEEPING to the extreme edge of the quay, we worked our way forward. Once I stepped on a slippery leaf and almost shot into the water. The worst bit was when we passed the foot of the companionway — at the head of which stood the armed and vigilant Goncalves. I let Lynch gain on me a dozen feet or so, so that we'd not go clattering by together. After I had passed the line of the Vittoria's bow I breathed more easily. A few rods farther along and Lynch plucked at me out of the darkness. I've found • path of sorts. We'd best try it." After a minute or two we were no longer walking on concrete but on eartri. The path began to climb steeply. It was >n ordinary forest trail, damp, sometime* slippery, made irregular by obtruding rocks and roots—but indisputably i path; one which must be used fairly often. Though there were no towns nearby, Haiti was i densely populated island. Even this farthest corner of the Republic must hav* its quota of fishermen and peasants. One could hardly expect that C?y could have overlooked so convenient > place of iccc« to the sea. And this, no doubt, was the trail which they took down to it. In another moment we were out of the. tangle of scrub forest through which the path had led and were in the open. A tew yards ahead of us, as nearly ac we could make out in the uncertain starlight, wis a kind of gate or portal. BILL WALKER 3WfPAW,VERTO't.lJCKIEfr CRITTER •* THJSS PMrrSTA" BE IHS'JREP Wf W.
