Crosstown Whiskey Shop Main & Division J WASN'T telling th« answers yet and Keever paced the floor al- | most a solid hour while Sheriff Nelson's deputies rounded up the missing members of the cast. Keever still thought 1 was bluff- Ing, but he hoped, for his own •ake, not mine, that I'd have an out. If I went over for bribery and murder, the Patterson machine would make such political capita) of it that Keever would have to postpone his try for governor, Colonel Winlon was the first to appear. He was filled with resentment at what he called virtual arrest, but he was also filled with • combination of fear and curiosity that made him almost eager. It was probably curiosity that made Sammy Berend submit to an escort of sheriff's deputies. He walked in with a gleam in his eye. "We asked him about this H11U - j er dame," said one of the escorting deputies. "He gave us her hotel address, but she wasn't there." I felt let down. Keever was ey- fng, me severely. I couldn't stall any longer. So I said: "Well, 1 hate to go on with my alibi witness missing, but here it is. Right from the beginning. Too bad Kay isn't here to take it down. Boss." Waring stirred uneasily. "I'm sure I don't know what's detaining my secretary. She told me she 'would get a cab and-come right out." "She can take Ben's statement later," said Keever. *'Go ahead, Ben, mnd it had better be good! I told my story from beginning to end, ending that is, when the highway patrol officers had nailed me. When I had finished, Keever •aid coldly: "You claire only one alibi witness, Wendy Hillyer, who's misi- ing. Only she-—you say—saw you enter your apartment house. Nobody saw you leavt it- No bus driver or passenger will remem- )er yon, even with your cut tem- ile. that McGregor must have •;iven you before he died! As for your car being in a parking lot, you H'ouldn't hove used your, own car anyway—you'd have used another." "Pardon my interruption," said Sammy Berend with a vicious glint in his eyes, "but I was svith Miss Ilillyer all afternoon from the lime I left Colonel Winton's offit-e until 5 when I took her to her liolel!" • • • T was possible that this ambulance chaser had lingered long enough in Winton's office to give her time to drive back, but it was more probable that he was getting even for that testimony I had given against him at the time of his disbarment proceedings. Kccvcr commented: "Whether the [lillyer girl was with you or not means nothing. You've no alibi from the time you say she knocked you out. You might have recovered consciousness a minute later!" "But I didn't! And, as for this cut on my temple, you should know that McGregor couldn't have put it there. The absence of powder marks on his face indicates that his murderer firod from a distance." "Speaking of the murderer, I thought you were going to nanr him. Unless you meant to name yourself, I don't follow you." "I'm not through yet, boss, was in hopes the Hillyer girl would be found by this (ime. I wanted to hear her story so—* There was a commotion outside Then Wendy Hillyer appeared, escorted by a sheriff's deputy. "She came here ol her own accord, chief," said the deputy "She wants to see Miss McGregor." Wendy Hillyer walked straight to Sylvia McGregor. If she saw me she gave no sign of it. "I'm so sorry!" she told Sylvia McGregor. The two girl* went hrough • hugging «rt. I noticed hnt 'he color was rising !n Sammy Bprenrt's face. Then Wenclj Tillyer snirl: But I've tnmt good news for you! I've just left Sammy Berend's office. Here's all the proof vou need!" She opened that big handbag bat I had once dumped and took out 3 shear of papers. "This will prove that Berend conspired to ruin your father's company, then bribed Colonel Winton to allow all thoee ridiculous claims in full!" "What's this?" Keever demanded "What've you got there?" Wendy Hillyer eyed Keevw aispicicmsly. Sylvia McGreRoi nodded, and she handed over tfa< documents. "See tor yourself!" ANYONE could see without examining the documents. Colonel Winton looked as if he was about to have a stroke. Sammy Berend was a greenish yellow, "I went to school with Sylvia." said Wendy Hillyer. "When her father 50! into a jam, she asked me to come to Capital City and win the confidence of Sammy Berend. It seems that Mr. Berend U even more fond of redheads than he is of blendes. I was making progress, but it was slow and painful work, so after the radio announced Mr. McGregor's death I derided to take drastic action. 1 got some keys from Sammy ami tonight I went through his office. You've got the result." Keever was listening but hastily scanning the documenls. He whistled snrt turned to Sammy Berend. "Well, this takes care of you for life, Sammy! The bar association grievance .committee will show you no quarter this time!" He turned on Colonel Winton. "Al for you. a fine crook you turned out to be!" Colonel Winton started to stutter, but Sa/nmy Berend snapped him off with: "Keep your mouth shut, you boob! Don't talk til! you've teen a lawyer!"
