Main Phone 3-4404 THE COWARD BY RAV IAPICA VII TIM ROGERS had a feeling of great weariness. A year had been wasted, a precious year during which he had worked at three jobs in order to get 12 months closer to the time when he could live like a human being again He had expected now to starl giving his w^fe and son some ol his !ove and some of .his attention. But now it was gone. Beyond the weariness loy fear. He was afraid of the short burly man who took the certified check. "May I go now?" Tim asked him timidly. He started to get up. All three of the hoodlums guffawed. The short burly man pushed him backward against the sofa. "We've got more business with you, sweetheart," he said. "II Clair's gonna cash this check, we've gotta find her. See?" "I don't know where she is," said Tim. "Got a wife and kids?" he asked. Tim nodded. "One son." "You'd better cooperate. They might miss you." "You're crazy, Dan," the mustached man said. "He can finger us. The cops will have an excuse to pick us up." Dan growled. "You heard him, B«n. He 'borrowed' the money. I don't think he'll do any rentier- ing." Diin turned to Tim. "Do you have any idea where we can \VA b, N[A Strvici. IM. find Clair Kolinsky?" Tim shook his head. "Does she have any relatives?" Tim shook his head, more slowly this time. Dan lifted a meat-like fist and Tim trembled, shrank back and said: "She's got a grandfather in Cleveland. He'd heard Al mention it am that was where he'd found Clair after the war. "Whereabouts in Cleveland? Dan asked. 'Jarvis Street, Richmond Heights," Tim said. "That's a small suburb southeast of the city." "Okay, what's his name? Tim wished he wouldn't find it so easy to remember these things, but he blurted out the answer: "Gebhardt. I don't remember the street number, but it wouldn'1 be hard to find th« old man. There shouldn't be too many people by the same name there." Dan grinned at Ben. "You stay with him," he said. "You and I'll go find her." "You don't want m« to go along?" "You've never been in favor of this deal from the start," said Dan. "It's just as well you stay here, and take care of this punk." Tim felt his flesh crawl. "Sure/ 1 he said. Dan and Lou, the two older jrothers, turned and left, while 3en stayed behind. Ben crossed the room to a xwkcase, pulled out a creased, eather-bound volume. "What you going to do?" Tim iskcd. "Read," said Ben. Then as Tim ookcd at him blankly: "Don't get upset, chum. I'm not going to hurt you, if you behave. Like Dan says, w« needn't be afraid of 70vi going to the police if that money's stolen." * * * BEN made Tin- > unslnlrs tn the room where om Mac Allison I lay gagged and bound on tlie floor. Ben unfastened Mac's gag but left him tied. Ben tied Tim and, telling him not to try to get nut or he might have to shoot him in one or both legs, Ben locked the door and went downstairs. White-haired and slight, Mac explained to Tim who the three men were and why they had come for Clair. He told how they had tried to get the addresses of relatives from him— he showed a lump over one eye —but he had pleaded ignorance successfully. (At this Tim twinged.) And how finally in disgust they had bound and gagged him and thrown' him into this upstairs room to wait for Tim. Mac tried to talk Tim into working their bonds loose, but Tim refused. "They'll shoot us if we try to, get away," Tim said. 'You're a coward," the old man said. Mentally Tim agreed. At -last Tim fell asleep. H» rested fitfully and was awake long before Ben appeared the next morning with some breakfast. I'm going to have to beat it," Ben said. "Sooner or later somebody's going to prowl around here and find you two. But by that time I'll be long gone." He watched his prisoners eat, ihen he retied their hands and took Mac into a separate room 1 . Ben came back and fastened • Tim to a bedpost in the room and then paused at the door. 'Ten grand isn't much to pay for your life, is it?" he asked. Tim didn't answer. • • • TIM, ROGERS started working limself loose right after Ben Traskfs left. Tim had big strong lands and wrists. His muscles were supple and within an hour e had worked his bonds loose, 'hen he went into another room where he found Mac Allison and untied,him. The old man thanked him and hey tried the phone. It wasn't forking. "We'll walk to Denver ."alls," !•••'•! M.nc. "II isn't far."
