Her eyes were green and the data understated that her hair was red. The space reserved tor occupation was blank. Confirming her identity were $450 worth of travelers' cheeks. "What are you doing so far from Cleveland, Miss Hillyer?" , The green eyes stared at me in sullen resentment. This baby was going to be hard to handle, "Did you ever think of ollering a lady a drink?" "O. K. Name it--maybe I've got it." She said she would settle (or bourbon aighball. I made the highball and poured a straight one for myself. I kept a. wary eye on her the while, for I was taking no chances with this numbei, I took her the drink and handed it to her. I didn't notice until she hac it in her left hand that her right hand was concealed and that foot was tucked Jack under the chair. Then it was loo late. A wildcat couldn't have been faster. She threw the contents o the glass into my face, and as staggered, blinded and aware that I had fallen for the oldest trick in the world, she conked me with the heel.^of the slipper she hat taken from her foot. Later 1 woke up staring at the ceiling. My head ached mightily at the temple, I washed my temple in shavinj lotion, and it burned like fire, walked out the back -way am down the fire stairs knowing wel enough that the red convertible would be gone. I had been ou nearly an hour and a half. walked down the alley. No taxi chose to come along at that moment, but a bus and i reached stop at the same lime* and boarded it. I got off within couple of blocks of the parking lo ontnimng my car and walked to i . I headed for McGregor's place. My car is equipped with a short- ave radio, and I turned it on. It vas lust possible that tny failure o show out at McGregor's and rit'sl the old man would irritate •Leever enough that he would put tut a pick-up for me. There was a pick-up for me, all ight, but it wasn't the kind I'd nought. It was a pick-up for murder. McGregor was dead, and gathered trom the headquarters syntax that I was wanted for the ob. * * * 'PHE juke box at the Wee Spot -*• kept running full blast, for i rept feeding nickels into it The aropricior and his wife weren't liking H. for they wanted to listen to the radio on the bar. I didn't want them to listen to it, and that's why I kept playing all the loud piectfs on the juke box. I was also eating sandwiches that tasted like paper sacks and drinking beer that was giving me a slightly groggy feeling. But il was the only way that 1 could keep on using this back-road beer joint as a hideout without stirring up the suspicion of the proprietor and liis wife. Maybe they were suspicious anyway, but a customer is a customer and business is business. While I'd been driving down the bnek alleys and country Janes trying to avoid the patrol cars 1 hat picked up some more stuft abou The State vs. Ben Corbett. I was in a jam this time, and it looked as if only the passing of a miracle would get me out of it. The whole story about the four $1000 bills was on the regula wave bands by now, with spo newscasts keeping the public alive to the latest iniquity of Ben Cor- bolt, sometime chief investigate in the office of the attorney gen eral. I was no longer on the pay NEA Servke, l»c. oll, tor Keever had announced iy suspension. i could hardly blame him, Shei- on had hod to level, and the story f the four grand was enough to ook my goose. But when the our grand added up to the murder of poor old McGregor, Keever lad a plain right to lose bis temper, • • • A NY man with a sane mind would believe me guilty. McGregor had threatened to expose my acceptance of bribe money it arrested him. and I had chosen he one way out to prevent ar- •esling him and the consequent exposiire. 1 had sneaked back into the McGregor house, leaving my car in a back road and using the cover of the woodlot at the rear of the house, i had crept up on Shellon, knocked him out with a alow from my automatic, then gone up the stairs and shot Mc- rcgor in cold blood, t wondered if Sholton really thought that He had been mentioned on the radio because of the assault upon him and because of his statement that McGregor had threatened me with exposure. He tiad been described as "a friend of the fugitive," I thought that explained to Keever why 1 would pull anything so crude as sneaking and killing McGregor with Shelton as a witness to McGregor's threat. Keever would think I had counted on Shelton's friendship lo keep him silent about that threat. Well, J wouldn't have been that stupid. Shelton is a clean-cut kid who would level in a case like that, no matter how much he would hate putting me in a crack. 1 still did count on Shelton to come through with all the chip* down. That's why I phoned him, telling him to meet me here at the Wee Spot, (To B* Continued) We're Proud of Our Work i work • Woodwork cturing • Welding BARKSDALE MFG. CO.
