Inc. ing, just as Lorna and Billy were leaving their Parkchester apartment, the elevator stopped and a dark, thin, handsome man with a hairline mustache got off. He put out his hand to stop them as they moved toward the elevator. "Mrs. Rogers? Lorna nodded. The man took out a small identification card STOOVt Tim Jtnffe-t, nwnrdlrr may hnve tttfn l>lr for (he dpnlk of Al i widow, fcj lh<! • kl> brotlirr« nlin r-niu-* iificr hrr l««- thtm to prlmm. Itnt . Clalr and Ttm t» XII BEN TRASK1S felt the $100 bills in his wallet and wondered if he would have the courage to break away .from his brothers. The money was not all his, but belonged jointly to Dan, Lou and himself. It had been salted away during their terms in prison and now they were using it to even the score with Clair Kolinsky. The certified check that Dan had would probably make them a small profit on this deal, if they were able to cash it. But Ben figured the check might get them in i lot of trouble sooner or later. He wondered if h« could break sway and decided he'd have to think about it a while. At test Dan returned his call. - "We're in'th* Atlas Motel, on Highway 6, about 15 miles west of the city," Dan said. "J saw that Rogers guy in front of the .hotel in Cleveland, so we had to clear out. Good thing you didn't fly out. What happened?" Ben told him of the guarded airport. - "Sit tight where you are," said Dan. "I'll phone you tomorrow and tell you where to jom us." "Okay," Ben said. He added, as an afterthought, "Be seeing Jou." Breaking with his brothers w ould be too lough to do alone. . After Dan hung up, Ben finished his drink. He still was Pondering when he dropped off t° sleep. He couldn't do it alone, •but maybe if he had someone to .help him ... • • • • AT 11 o'clock the next morn- stamped "Federal Bureau of Investigation" to which the man's photograph was clipped. "Agent Larsen, Pittsburgh office. May I speak to you lor a moment, please?" Her throat tightening, Lorna ,ed the man into her apartment. He looked it over, taking in the cheap rug and furniture, the scuffed dining chain, the p«P«r lamp shades. She flushed as his glance swept the room and rested a moment on each drab item in it. "What's happened to Tim?" she demanded, "He's in great danger. You've got to tell me where he is." "Then you didn't come to arrest him?" "No. why should we want to do that?" "But the money h< tooX . . . of course, you're from Pittsburgh. You wouldn't—" "No, I wouldn't, but I know. Have you any idea where he is?" "Isn't he in Beaver Falls?" "No. He went to Cleveland 'esterday and then ijjsappearcd." "I didn't know he knew anybody in Cleveland." "He went to see Mrs. Holmsky at her grandfather's home. You know her? , Well, this morning both of them disappeared.' "Both of them? Tim in danger? Why is The man explained briefly. Billy's eyes brimmed with tears and his hand clutched at Lorna's a* they listened. Lorni's mind eapcti "head of the visitor's itory. Should she io on to Lan- caster and abandon the man wha had not only deprived her of a happy marriage for the sake of another woman but had become a thief as well? She owed Tira nothing. "What do you want me to do?" Try to figure out where they might have gone." "He's got a brother in Detroit." "Remember the address?" She looked it up. It was in the suburbs on Bentler Street. "But why should he go there —with another woman?" she isked. "They left in panic in the middle of the night. It's possible they thought of the first refuge outside Cleveland and chose his brother's home." The man examined her cardboard bags. 'You're going on a trip. It's obvious you're leaving him. But his life is at stake. Won't you fly with me to Detroit first and do this last service for him?" "You can fly alone." '"I hive an idea it will give im quite a jolt when he sees you. You can tell him why you :ame—then leave." .The idea suddenly appealed to Lorna. "All right," she said, "but [ don't have enough money." "I'JI take care of H." • • • THE man went to the phone and made reservation* for three persons on one of the afternoon lights via United Airlines to Detroit. "I'll be back for you hi aa iour," he said. . Outside he went to the dru|- ftore at the corner on Metropolitan Avenue and dialed long distance. "The Atlas Motel on Highway 6 west of Cleveland, plenst. 1 ' want Mr. John Fairweathtr. . . . Dan? Ben. I did what you said. t worked. He's got,a brother n Detroit." He gave Dan the Bentler Street address. "I'll fly out there this afternoon with her and the kid. Only way I can ;et out of town if they're rcnlly ooking for me. Meet you tonight it your motel. . . . Yeah . ." Ben laughed. "You may be broke, but I'm loaded, so b« m'o» :« me!" He hung up.
