He walked in casually. I greeted him as an old friend and we used one of the four booths. I fed the iuke box the last at my nickels. I was that broke. Sure. I had four S1000 bills In my pocket, but they were of no more value to me than confetti. I saw Shclton's eyes narrow as he thought about my bruise. I could read hfs mind—I must have gotten that when old McGregor fought back as I killed him. I told him about the full allowance of Sammy Berend's 5300,000 worth of claims, about Sammy's girl, Wendy Hillyer and the sharp heel of her slipper. 1 could see the Incredulity in Shelton's eyes as I related the latter. "I know you're thinking, Shellie, that a guy who's been in as many jams as I have and handled as many hoods, wouldn't fall for an old gag like a drink in the face with a hetl on top. Well, it's the old ones that get you, Shellie. That gal was greased lightning. It would b« interesting to know about her. She's the one who phoned Keever, all right, and she's Sammy Berend's girl!" • • • TIE eyed me steadily, then bluntly said: "I'd like to believe you, Ben. But you wouldn't be the first honest cop that's got fed up with being honest and gone wrong. I still like you and regard you as * friend and will continue to do so even if they nail you for this. I wouldn't have risked losing my job to come out here on the sly if that hadn't been so. "But I'm also an adult with the qualifying I.Q. And thi» thing looks awfully tunny to me. About the funniest is your story ol • red-headed girl named Wendy Hillyer whom nobody's ever seen with Sammy lierend. Sammy gets around, lie's got a girl that he kcei)s m fur coals and diamond bracelets, hut her hair isn't red, it's blonde." "1 know that, but there are few blondes I wouldn't throw over for thai redhead. Fortunately, you can check on her. I even remember her address from her driver's license. The moment she opens her moulh, even Keever will realize she's the girl who made the anonymous phone call. From there on, she should be made to talk plenty. That's what 1 want you to do. Shellie; put Keever on her trail and get Ihc story out of her." _ "Why would somebody have a girl phone McGregor and instruct him to send you five S1000 bills— unless you were that somebody?" I shook my head. Shellon was eying me with blunt frankness, lie was still my pal, but he wasn't blinding himself to what h(s mind told him made He rubbed the back of his sense, head. "I'd hate to find conclusive proof thai you put the slug on me, Ben. But if I ever do, we'll really have a battle—that's R promise." "Tell me what happened, Shellie.- "Well, I ml around about an hour. Then 1 heard a movement in the' house and wondered if old McGregor, had: got downstairs some wny. So I walked like a fool through the doorfcay and got it from somebody standing at Ui« side. "I didn't fall dowTi through • murky pit the way the guys do in the books—1 just woke up later with a headache. Then 1 went upstairs and found McGregor, still in his chair, slouched over on hi« right side. He'd been shot through the face, right at the bridge oi hi* nose." "Powder marks?" "No. Nol even a cartridge case lying around, and 1 took foe granted it had txjen done with a revolver, which turned out 'to be a fact. A .:I2. The slug hadn't gone through the back I started to reach for the extension phone i in the window sill to call Keever I (hen got belter sense and went downstairs and made the call. When the sheriff and his gang came out with Keever I had to tell the truth about McGregor's threat. By (hat time Sylvia McGregor and Lew Jerls had Jot back." "Quite a blow to the suppose.* CHELTON grimaced. -Not so bad she is you might think, nor Jeris had been scrape up more than a couple of thousand bail. And they'd gone separate trails, trying all of McGregor's friends and meeting just before they drove back. Sylvia was so downhearted that she seemed to take her father's death with somclhing like a feeling of relief. Maybe (he old boy is better off at that." "Hrn—maybe she figured that wtiy when he was still alive." Shelton frowned. "Don't try to sell me the idea that Sylvia killed the old man herself to put him of his misery!" "Nevertheless, it would be wet) to check on the calls both she and Lew Jeris made. Especially Jeris. Ever since I found out about how Sammy Berend had enough inside dope on the finances of McGregor's insurance company to time his damage suits so it would wreck it. I've wondered where he got his Information. McGregor might have smelled a rat and thrown a strong hint. In that eas Lew Jeris would have plenty of reason to murder him." . She HOD shook his head. "No sale, Ben. It all comes back lo 'his—If you're innocent ol McGregor's murder, you're Innocent of «oliciting a bribt. In that case McGregor's murderer framed you on the bribe. Now, tell m« one good reason why Lew Jeris wouJd fool with the bribery framel" (T« Be Condoled) We're Proud of Our Work Machine work Woodwork Manufacturing • Welding- BARKSDALE MFG. CO.
