Mr. McGregor, so you sent me the four $1000 bills! Why? Who told you to send them?" McGregor's anger seemed to Intensify. "You dare ask that? who promised that you'd give me a ciean bill of health if I sent you $5000 in daily installments of $1000 each? And now you have ttie nerve to pretend you dont know jwhy I sent them!" 1 "I'm not pretending, Mr. McGregor. I never made such a ! promise or such a demand!" • "Of course not—personally! You were too clever for that! You had some girl make the coll. I took it right here in this chair from that extension phone." He pointed dra- .matically at a phone standing in 'a corner of the window sill. "Don't jdeny that you got the money! It 'iwas mailed directly to your apart- ,ment house!" [ "Oh, I got the money, ail right, jit's right here in my pocket. So a girl called you! Well, you should have called me back!" McGregor was eying me as if vastly puzzled. ]^ f |"cGREGOR studied me, then said: "Well, maybe you did turn in the right report, but that doesn't help me any!

I'd rather have had him banging his fist and accusing me. 1 nodded to Shelton, and we !ell the room. Out on the verandah ag;nn; I said: "Well, at least we know where the money came from! Somebody has foxed both McGregor and me and" I broke off. eying Shellon. He was avoiding my eyes, 1 snapped: "You aren't buying McGregor's idea that I put some girl up to making a^deal. are you?" Shelton still wouldn't look at me. I really felt sick, / "You did return a report favorable to McGregor, all rifihU" He had suddenly brought his gaze to bear on me, "Thai's what makes his story sound good!" "But not. good enough!

We've both been victimized. >Mr. McGregor. It so happens that jjl did turn in a report that gave \yoli a clean bill of health. But a ';man higher up than 1 am recom- . nv.nded to Mr. Kecver that you be prosecuted. 1 shouldn't tell you that, but 1 want you to know that of treasury department mstruc lions to watch $1000 bills! Can' you see-that somebody's trying f frame trie and play McGregor for a sucker at the same time?" "All right, Ben, I believe you! But we've got to work fast and find ovil what \Yie score is." He was dead right. "There's something nbout this insurance liquidation that smells," 1 said. "Nobody would frame me just (or the sadistic pleasure of it.

Now I had an idea 39 to who that shyster was. I entered the building, rode to :hc fourth floor which housed Colonel Winton's office and walked right fn despite the horrified protest of Winton's secretary. Sammy Berend was in the room with Winton. He gave me a dirty look as I entered, and not merely because ! was interrupting a conference. A year or so before when Sammy had been hailed before the grievance committee of the bar association, 1 had given testimony against him. But he had survived, suffering only a reprimand. "What's the meaning of this?" Colonel Winton asked indignantly. He was on old meatball who rind been n political hanger-on for half a century. I replied: "Pardon the interruption. Colonel- I'll take only a minute of your time. I want to talk to you about the McGregor case—privately." "You can go right ahead." snid Winton.
